Wish I’d Have Known That Sooner! SharePoint Insanity Demystified After years of helping organizations around the world to deploy and implement SharePoint, Dan Holme has found that there are certain pain points that almost everyone encounters. Some are confusing concepts. Some are bad decisions driven by Microsoft’s UI and documentation. Some are due to unnecessarily complex terminology. And some because there are things that SharePoint should do, but can’t. In this session, Dan will share the most common and problematic scenarios, and their solutions, with the goal of saving you pain, time, and money. Think of this session as “Lessons Learned,” “Best Practices,” or “From the Field” on steroids.

Total Workstation Lockdown: Your Action Plan Total workstation lockdown isn't for every machine in your organization, but some machines require it. It's usually those "public walk up" machines that we need to manage a little bit differently; the machines that are in the cafeterias, the lobby and the library. The more we think about it, these kinds of machines are everywhere in our organization - inviting attack and ruining our day. Who knows what crazy things people are doing ON these machines - visiting strange web sites and installing evil software. The good news is that Microsoft has a slew of solutions to help you with this very specific problem. And it doesn't mean you need to turn the thumbscrews and go from 0 - 100% lockdown either. Microsoft has a variety of technologies you can choose (and mix and match) to make sure your workstations as locked down only as much as they need to be. In this session, Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz will demonstrate a myriad of ways to make your public desktops more secure. You will also learn about some non-Microsoft tools to help enhance your control of this notoriously difficult situation. Jeremy Moskowitz

How to Find Security Issues in Your Microsoft Network! Security analysis has become an important tool in our overall security strategies. Often we are unsure whether or not we have too many security dependencies in our Microsoft Network. We don’t how many Admin accounts are exposed on clients and servers, if the latest patches really are installed, and so on. During this session, Marcus Murray will demonstrate how you can perform a security analysis on your internal clients & servers and, using a step-by-step approach, identify common security issues. You will learn about the tools needed and how to use them, how to interpret the output, and what to do with the result. This session is very valuable if you want to be able to perform effective security analysis in your own Microsoft Network.  Marcus Murray
System Center Service Manager 2010: Real Life Example: The coffee machine workflow There is panic in the IT department.  The coffee machine ran out of coffee.  And even worse, after that, the machine breaks down.  Now what?
 
This session will focus on how easy it is to create your existing processes into system center service manager.  With the help of the coffee machine example, we will demonstrate from zero on how to create CI's into Service Manager, build a workflow with automatic routing and solve the case of the broken coffee machine, so that the IT department can continue to work... with a nice cup of coffee.
 
Join us in this system where we will use the MOF framework, System Center Service Manager, Operations Manager (the coffee machine management pack!) and Opalis to define a specific incident process within an hour.
