VRMC V1.8.0 and Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Ran into a weird one this morning, and figured I would share it in case it saves someone else my headache.

 Windows Server 2003 SP2 running Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 was awaiting me when I started this morning.  As I think the Virtual Server Administration Webpage is something that only its designer could love, I downloaded the VMRCPlus client from Microsoft and installed it.  When I attempted to connect to localhost to manage the local Virtual Server, it kept giving me an “Access Denied” error message.

 For some reason, it would not work correctly unless I installed the .NET Framework Version 3.5.  I could not find this documented anywhere, so I figured I would share it.  I’m not sure if the tool actually requires V3.5 of the framework (Versions 2 and 3.0 were already installed on this server), or if installing 3.5 fixed some other strange problem in the process.

 Good luck;

New Training Facility to Open

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Well, after seven months of searching, we have finally found a home for our new training facility.  We have leased Suite 102 in the Cleaveland Building, located off 220 Alternate directly across from the Botetourt Athletic Club in Botetourt County, Virginia.

 We are extremely excited to finally have our facility, which will offer two training rooms with high-end PCs for the best training experience for our clients.  We will spending the month of December getting the computers, furniture, and Internet access in place, and are currently accepting training reservations for training at the new location taking place after January 1st, 2009. 

 If you need training before then, we can always provide the training at your location.  Just let us know.

 We hope to see you at our new location soon.
