Using Hyper-V Hardware Virtualization
CCF 2009 SP1 includes support for Microsoft Hyper-V for CCF server and client components. Hyper-V allows you to install multiple server roles on a single Windows Server 2008 server, using virtualization. CCF 2009 SP1 also supports mixed environments where some of the components exist on a Microsoft Hyper-V server, and the rest on physical machines. In production environment, the usual scenario is to host CCF servers in a Hyper-V environment, and host SQL server and clients on normal machines.
You can install CCF 2009 SP1 on a Hyper-V virtual machine as your install on a physical machine. You can also use Microsoft System Center Operation Manager (SCOM) packages on any Hyper-V machines, as it is installed in normal machines. CCF 2009 SP1 includes management pack for use by any SCOM. You can import the management pack into Operations Manager’s console and use it to monitor the CCF server. For more information about SCOM packages in CCF 2009 SP1, see Exporting the CCF Management Pack for Microsoft SCOM.
