Microsoft has released and made the updated VMMSSP: System Center Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal 2.0 SP1 available at the Microsoft Connect site.
This new updated version provides users the ability to import virtual machines created outside the portal but managed by System Center Virtual Machine Manager and to re-import virtual machines previously removed.
Features of VMMSSP 2.0 SP1 includes;
Import virtual machines: Allows DCIT (Datacenter) administrators to re-import virtual machines that were removed from the self-service portal and also import virtual machines created outside the portal but managed by VMM.
Expire virtual machines: This feature provides the user the ability to set an expiration date for the virtual machines that are being created or imported so that the virtual machines auto-delete after the set date. This feature also provides users the flexibility (through role-based access) to set or change the expiration date for the virtual machine.
Notify administrators: This feature provides functionality to notify BUIT(Business Unit) or DCIT(Datacenter) administrators about various events in the system (for example, Submit request, Approve request,Expire virtual machine, and so on) via email through SQL server mail integration.
Move infrastructure between business units: This feature allows DCIT(Datacenter) administrators to move an infrastructure from one business unit to another when the system is in Maintenance Mode.
