writing a book..!

Yes, you read that right. I got this weird thought of writing my own book on Hyper-V configuration and management, purely from a IT Pro point-of-view. I was looking for a good book for MCTS: Windows Server Virtualization, configuring exam and did not find a Microsoft Press book. Of course, there are couple of e-learning offerrings. There is just one book which is a study guide for this exam. However, this is not available as an Indian edition. I have to shell out a few thousands to get the US copy. At the same time, looking at the exam objectives, I felt that this is something I do day-in and day-out. I have fair amount of knowledge to take the exam right away. However, I would still like to work on the whole subject a bit once again and then take the exam.

In this same regard, I am thinking of putting together a book — only an online edition. BTW, anyone interested in printing this?!? :). This effort may help others in learning Hyper-V management concepts and at the same time improve my writing skills. So, just created a wiki page on this blog. I will try to go from basics to the most complex tasks you may perform using SCVMM. I am still working on the outline and will have it ready in couple of days. If anyone of you is interested in joining me as a co-author, please free to drop me a note.
