This article describes how to use the Mmcv.exe utility to manage clustered Microsoft Message Queuing resources from a Terminal server connection to a node of the cluster.
You can only configure certain Message Queuing features from a console session that is connected to the virtual network name when the virtual network name is bound to the clustered Message Queuing resource.
In Microsoft Windows 2000, this behavior limits the ability to manage the clustered instance of the Message Queuing resource. In Windows 2000, you must manage the Message Queuing resource from a clustered command prompt that is connected to the console of the cluster. Terminal server sessions that are connected to the node or to the actual virtual computer cannot provide console access.
In Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Message Queuing 3.0 has similar management limitations. Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server provides access to the console of a clustered virtual machine (VM) through Terminal Services. However, this access is limited to one connection at a time.
The Mmcv.exe utility provides access to these features by opening computer management in the context of the network name that the Message Queuing resource is bound to. The Mmcv.exe utility provides the same level of access to administer Message Queuing as you would have if you were logged on to the console.
