Hello all.....here it is 2010 already and I am just getting back in the saddle after being away on a long break. I lost my father suddenly at the end of last year, so I had to step away from the blogging for a bit. But, I am back and boy do I have a lot of great things to share with you folks over the next couple of weeks. So, lets get started with a new utility that was just released, that I am sure we all will be really excited about.
Keith Mange from the Microsoft Hyper-V team has developed a new utility called NVSPBind, that address a major management headache when working with Hyper-V Server 2008, Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 and server core installations of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. When working with these installations, there wasn't a utility or process provided that allowed for the administration of the bindings or protocols for installed network adapters. Unlike the full installation of Windows that leverages the network connections applet.
NVSPBind now gives administrators the ability to enable or disable specific NIC bindings, Hyper-V network switch protocol and query and change NIC connection order. Best of all, this can all be done from the command line.
