Virtualization enables organizations to create virtual machines from a single physical machine and administer them to their employees on demand. Bentley is exploring other virtualization providers like VMWare Horizon and Azure Virtual Desktop. If your organization uses any of these, please reach out to us with your questions, and we’ll try our best to assist.
Virtual machines are a great way to manage operating systems and work remotely with a running Remote Desktop Connection, login credentials and a valid IP address. Installing virtualization software allows one or more virtual machines to share one physical computer. Your IT administrator can create VMs with a readymade image of Windows operating system that includes OpenUtilities and any other software needed. When such a VM is provisioned to you, you can directly launch OpenUtilities and start working on your project.
You can create a new VM and install its operating system by following these simple steps located here.
You can export and import existing VMs in Windows Hyper-V Server by following these steps located here.
If you work on a heavy-duty desktop machine that is difficult to carry or if your organization does not allow employees to move computers out of the office premises, Remote Desktop Connection offers a great way to log into that machine from your personal computer. You will require your computer name or IP address. Click here to follow the instructions on this page.
