My Wishlist for System Center Virtual Machine Manager

I’ve used System Center Virtual Machine Manager for a few years now, and I’ve come to like its ups and deal with its downs. It has a lot of great features, like bare-metal deployments and logical networks, which when executed correctly are both huge time savers and take away a lot of human error. With SCVMM, let’s start with some of a new additions in 2016: Converting ‘Standard Switches’ on hosts to Logical Switches Too often in the past I’ve retro-fitted VMM into a Hyper-V Environment and had to wrestle with removing existing Standard Switches and replacing them with Logical switches and had to deal with migrating VMs, losing connectivity, rolling back.
