5Nine Manager for Hyper-V 3.6 released

5Nine today announced the release of version 3.6 of Manager for Hyper-V. Manager for Hyper-V is a local management tool for managing the Hyper-V hypervisor.

Microsoft provides a command line tool (SCONFIG) for the basic configuration tasks in Hyper-V server or GUI-less installations, it provides no local GUI for its management, for GUI access, administrators without any third party software have to rely on remote management through Windows Server, System Center Virtual Machine Manager or Remote Server Administration Tools: this is a space well suited for third party solution providers and 5Nine is among them.

 

5nine Manager for Hyper-V v3.6 allows local and remote management of Virtual Networks and Virtual Machines from a single management console and supports multiple versions of Microsoft hypervisors (2012 R2 / 2012 / 2008 R2 SP1).
