Windows 8 Hyper-V
Posted on 2013-06-15
I have a client that runs a very large real-estate office.
They are a BYOD office, but they have several machine for realtors to use. My problem is the machines become junked up after a while to the point of really not being useable for others that may need them. I have locked them down with local policy about as much as I can.
I have been using windows 8 on my home machine and really like the Hyper v functionality. With Hyper-v I can create a virtual machine snapshot and revert back to that snapshot if my experimental machine goes south.
This would be a perfect solution for my real-estate and make it very easy for the local admin to revert the machines back to a functional state instead of re-loading or re-imaging them. The main issue I am facing here is how do I limit access to the Windows 8. I want to start the RD session to the Hyper V, but I do not want people to have access to the Windows 8 systems.
I would really appreciate some feed back.
