This is a post that I just put up on the System Center blog, but I also wanted to post it here for better visibility because one of the topics this week is about automating Hyper-V administration using PowerShell. While you can do lots of great things with Virtual Machine Manager and especially across servers, sometimes you need to get down to the Hyper-V level and tweak some settings. That kind of thing can be done easier, especially at scale using PowerShell directly against Hyper-V.
We are launching a new Windows Server/System Center MVP Speaker Series this week! This continuing education series of presentations will be delivered by some of our MVPs on various topics around Window Server and System Center. The content will be deep dive, advanced, and very technical. The MVPs are some of the most knowledgeable people about the products in the world, especially when it comes to real world experience and practical application.
Anyone can attend because all of the meetings will be presented over Lync. The meetings will also be recorded and made available afterwards for on demand viewing.
This week we will have two sessions and we’ll normally have one per week. The two sessions coming up this week are:
Automating Hyper-V Administration with PowerShell (Tuesday at 8:00 AM Pacific time)
Keeping your CIO Happy: Executive Scorecarding with SQL, SharePoint, and System Center 2012 Operations Manager (Thursday at 8:00 AM Pacific time)

You will need the Lync 2013 client to be installed on your computer to view and hear the presentation. You can download and install that from
