Longhorn Beta 3 is out the door and in the hands of a lot of people now.  You might be one of them.  If you are like me you'll poke around, try a few things and blow away the install a few times before you get it right.  Now you may not have the time to do this so when I found this little nugget I decided to post it.

Microsoft eLearning has developed, and made available for free, four online courses on Longhorn.  You can sign up for the four courses here and get up to speed on

  • Clinic 5936: Introducing Security and Policy Management in Microsoft Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" (Beta 3)
  • Clinic 5937: Introducing Branch Office Management in Microsoft Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" (Beta 3)
  • Clinic 5938: Introducing Centralized Application Access in Microsoft Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" (Beta 3)
  • Clinic 5939: Introducing Server Management in Microsoft Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" (Beta 3)

These should help get you on the right track and help get you ready for Longhorn.  That and the upcoming Future Of The Server Room tour.
