Good writeup on installing Ubuntu 7.10 on Virtual PC.  However, it hung for me right after the first screen with two different ISO downloads.  I was trying this at home on my AMD Vista Laptop.  Some comments on the page makes me suspicious that I'll need use my Virtual Server at work.


With an RDP connection to an XP system at work I was able to get the Ubuntu to install.  I'll conclude, for now, there is some issue with VPC on Vista.

The mouse continued to be flaky but it could be the system within system within system connection I was using.  I'm on a Vista laptop with a touchpad, running an XP VPC with VPN RDP connection to an XP System running the Ubuntu VPC! Now why can't my mouse work?! :)

I guess on Monday I'll see how well the mouse works when I can get direct access to the VPC.  Next hurdle... get it on the network.  Then to see if I can Admin the thing through Powershell!

Virtual Linux
# Saturday, 23 February 2008

I'm in the initial stages of attempting to control Linux servers from Windows using PowerShell.

The obvious path is using SSH.  The question is how.  Unfortunately with all the buzz around PowerShell Remoting, what I'm finding is a lot of the reverse... accessing PowerShell through SSH.  The reciprocity of this may make the reverse true but I haven't found the confirmation link yet.

The long way around the block might be through Cygwin and Putty.  The link is a little old but it shows a way.  I'm hoping for a direct path from PowerShell so I can minimize installation dependencies.


NetCmdlets is the "almost" direct path.  It looks good but too pricy for the way I want use it.  Besides, it's "just" a wrapper for rsh.exe.  Looks like I'll be attempting my own wrapper.  Anyone else try to do this?
