P2V Migration for Software Assurance Beta 2

P2V Migration adds documentation and support of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Zero Touch Installation!

What is better than spending a moment to kick off a completely automated process to redeliver an existing operating system as a virtual machine within a new build of Windows 7?

Answer: Making the entire process "zero touch" without necessitating a visit to the target computer or manually initiating the migration!

P2V Migration for Software Assurance can now be implemented using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Operating System Deployment as well as native Lite Touch Installation with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010. Computer refresh, replace and restore task sequence templates for Configuration Manager are included and documented in this Beta release.

Additional optimizations beyond Configuration Manager functionality included in this release are:

  1. Better flexibility for backing-up and restoring VHD files using default file locations
  2. Support for PCs using system and boot volumes
  3. Globalization of scripts to handle varying regional and locale formats
  4. General bug fixes and improved documentation

These fixes reflect the feedback of our Connect community and MVPs - thanks to everyone for submitting feedback!
