Today we’ve released an update to the Project ‘Honolulu’ technical preview. This is an incremental update from the last update on
. We’ve added a couple top requested features in Virtual Machines and continued with the performance enhancements that lead to faster load times and page rendering. This build was previously released to
Windows server insiders
before the holidays.

New Functionality in this Release
Based on high customer request, we now support viewing and changing VM settings while a VM is running, similar to how you can in Hyper-V Manager. On Generation 2 VMs, you can change general settings, memory setting, checkpoint setting and add disks and network adapters.
You can also enable nested virtualization when creating a VM, or from the processor settings of an existing (stopped) VM. This is functionality that was previously only accessible from the command line.
