Netscaler 10.1 and System Center Virtual Machine Manager provider

A New secret from Citrix Smilefjes
Citrix just recently released a new build of its Netscaler appliance and also included a provider to integrate with Virtual Machine Manager even thou it is very hidden from the naked eye.

Open up Netscaler GUI web-console and up in the right corner you have the downloads pane.

under here you will find the Management Pack for SCOM and the provider for VMM.

After you have installed in you need to restart the virtual machine manager service on the VMM Server, then it will appear under the Configuration Provider on SCVMM.

It has the same feature set as It did before. Was hoping for something new and exiting feature set but not yet.
