System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 R2 is a server application that you can use to manage virtual machines on a variety of virtualization platforms. As an alternative to using the VMM Administrator Console to administer your Virtual Machine Manager environment, you can use the cmdlets in the Windows PowerShell – Virtual Machine Manager command shell, which is an administrator-focused command-line shell. This document provides the Help topics for the VMM 2008 R2 cmdlets.
The Integration Pack for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) is an add-in for System Center 2012 – Orchestrator that enables you to automate the following activities:
The Integration Pack for System Center Virtual Machine Manager requires the following software to be installed and configured before you deploy the integration. For more information abouthow to install and configure the Orchestrator and the System Center Virtual Machine Manager application, see the respective product documentation.
The activities from the Virtual Machine Manager Integration Pack connect to a Virtual Machine Manager Administration Console which in turn connects to a Virtual Machine Manager server. You can install this console on the Orchestrator runbook server or connect to the Administration console on another computer. If the Orchestrator components and the Virtual Machine Manager Administration Console are installed on the same 64-bit computer, the Virtual Machine Manager server must be in the same domain to be able to connect to it.
For information about how to obtain this integration pack, see Integration Pack for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=228718).
