Thanks so much to Ben Armstrong from the Virtualization team for emailing me the link to the elusive Programmer’s Guide for Virtual Server 2005. It would seem the docs are still there, just not as easy to find. There are also some great script samples in the repository to show how to work with the COM API. I’m playing around with it now and will let you know what I find.
Oh, and yes I could have installed Win08 RC1 and tried the the new Hyper-V, but I had other requirements that dictated Virtual Server ’05. Maybe next time. 🙂
