The VMM Network Builder Addin should be added to the product. But not all of that.
We need also a topological view of networks and interfaces and how they correlate.
Here you see what I mean and how VMware did it. http://www.mikelaverick.com/wiki/index.php?title=File:Screen_Shot_2013-11-27_at_09.38.51.png
And when you drill in deeper you should see which machine is connected to which VLAN and switch. Visualized also with configurable colors for VLANs. In this case you would layout the network topology in a mixed view for physical network (Host adapter) and virtual networks (VNICs). For most people pictures are better then thousand words.
We are planning on improving the deletion workflow for VMM networking artifacts.
Do you folks have specific examples where the workflow is sub-optimal? (apart form deletion of networking artifacts)
