Hyper-V PowerPack out

Yesterday Kirk “Poshoholic” Munro made available his Hyper-V PowerPack for PowerGUI.

As you probably know, Hyper-V does not have PowerShell cmdlets but is exposing quite a few WMI interfaces. Kirk wrapped those into PowerShell scripts and made the whole library exposed in a very handy admin GUI.

The tool adds quite a few functions which native console does not have – see Kirk’s blog post for the full list. Thus, even if you don’t care about scripting you can just use it as a more feature-rich alternative.

If you are a PowerShell scripter (or want to become one) – all the code is available on the PowerShell code tab or in the Properties dialog boxes, and you can obviously make any tweaks, add your own scripts, etc., etc.

Read more about the pack here, or download it here.
