Is there a way to turn off "ratings" when migrating a VM? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I completely understand why Microsoft provided the ratings scheme but there are times when you (the human) know you need to move a VM from one host to another and waiting for the "ratings" to populate can be complete waste of time.  Is there a way to at least temporarily turn ratings off?

  • Hello Robert,

    If you provision your VM through NOT HOST but through Cloud it will take less time.

    And for wasting time , it should get ratings because if you have over 100 Hyperv host and cluster , you can not exactly know which server has more resources.

    That should calculate which server is available for provisioning. Otherwise you have to connect all your over 100 servers , or write a script to identify which host has more resources.

    By the way , if you have less server you can use Powershell Scripts for provisioning.

  • You can open a powershell window and do a Move-VM command. If it is a live migration, you basically only need to specify the VM and target host. Let me know if you need a sample script to assist you.

  • Thanks.

    I can handle the Move-SCVirtualMachine command but just find it frustrating that you guys spend millions of dollars building a GUI and I have to resort to a PowerShell command because the admin can't turn off ratings when desired.    My GUI "holy grail" would be able to drag and drop a bunch of machines between hosts and have the option for VMM 2012 to move the machines sequentially rather than all at once.

  • Thanks for the reply.   I only have 10 Hyper-V Hosts so admittedly VMM 2012 could be considered overkill but there are times when an admin "knows" which Host a machine or set of machines should be on and the ratings just get in the way and I'd like to use the GUI just for simplicities sake.
