  1. Make VMM support "4k-native" VHDXs.

    Make VMM support "4k-native" VHDXs. VM creation will fail in VMM if that VM has a 4k-native VHDX. 2012R2 Hyper-v supports 4k native VHDXs just fine. But VMM fails on it.
    Before you say "use VHDX format, VMM supports it", please re-read carefully and check - the default vhdX is 512e; VHDX is 4k native only when you explicitly set logical sector size as 4k during its creation. And if you use 4k native VHDX - VMM fails on it (though works fine with 512e VHDX)
    Tested on VMM 2012 R2 UR10 and Windows 2012 R2 File Server Storage Pools:…

    Thanks for providing the inputs, we are reviewing this and update on future progress.

  2. Better performance management in VMM

    I like to see what performance counters on Hyper-V hosts and VMs on the following components:
    - CPU
    - Memory
    - Network
    - Disk

    These performance counters can be viewed in a graph for a day, week and month trend.

    It would be nice to see what are the top hosts and VMs on CPU, memory, network and disk I/O in realtime in SCVMM without the use of SCOM
