Surprise it all worked

I was creating a demo using virtual server so I needed to install an application from an image I had on the host drive. Firstly I had to map to the host drive from the virtual instance. I then installed Daemon and mapped a drive in the instance to an ISO image on the host hard drive. I was expecting some sort of problem but it worked like a dream.

Using Select into in Sql server

It's a No No
Don’t use select into as it locks the tempdb for the duration of the select. You have to create the temp table fist and then do a insert … select … from. Need to look at it this in SQL 2005.

Hello Virtual Server

Goodbye VPC Hello Virtual Server

Having downloaded virtual server a few week ago and having got to grips with the virtual networks feature I have decided to now dump Virtual PC completely. Although I will miss the shared folders option which was out of virtual server for security reasons.

Going to try the migration kit next which should allow me to migrate a physical server to a virtual server instance.
