Minimum Requirements

To let the module work you need to have a couple of components set up.

The standard architecture is to have a server that will manage the images and a host that will have the clones.

Commands can be executed remotely which enables you to manage images and clones from your local machine.
When executing the commands remotely, you have to have the module and all it’s dependencies installed on both the local and the remote host.

Local Host (Executing commands remotely)

Powershell version 5
dbatools
PSFramework

Imaging Host (Remote or local)

SQL Server instance (at least version 2000)
Hyper-V Windows feature installed  (No longer needed from version 0.2.1)
Hyper-V PowerShell module installed  (No longer needed from version 0.2.1)
Enough space to house the size of the database to image at least once

Cloning Host

Hyper-V Windows feature installed  (No longer needed from version 0.2.1)
