      It looks like it is now a public release. And there is a blog dedicated to it.

        Now I only need to wait for the P2V converter and the mechanism of importing VMWare machines and I can start my VirtualWorld adventure

          Anyone used this yet?

          I installed it on my laptop hoping to connect to my main desktop which runs Virtual Server (Not in a domain). Whenever I connect to the IP address I get Access Denied error message (I'll post this when I get home)

          Does anyone know if this works only in a domain environment?

          Thanks

            I just tried it from a workstation (no domain) and indeed no connect

            A quick peek in to the help file.....
            VMRCplus can manage a workgroup server when installed locally on the host.

            Management of remote workgroup servers however is not possible. The Virtual Server COM API does not provide a form of ‘connect as’ when connecting to a remote host.

            VMRCplus should be used in a trust scenario with both the VMRCplus host and the remote hosts in the same forest.
            I suppose this will be one of the first new features in the future. I sure hope it is, as installing a stand alone Virtual server, not in a domain, is very common.

                I have it on my laptop (no domain) and on my server (no domain) and I can work just fine.

                Locally.

                When I try to connect my laptop to the other VS I get an access denied message.

                  Yep, and it looks like it will remain that way.
                  Keep an eye on that blog for an explanation coming soon.
                  oh well, too bad.

                    Re: Download VMRC Plus

                    Just an update; the following was posted on the blog
                    Some things will never be in VMRCplus. For example workgroup support (management of non-domain joined hosts) and support for different credentials. Basically these are related and the possibilities are limited by the Virtual Server architecture. I will write a separate article on that.
