Feature Summary

  • Monitor the NLB Node status.
  • Based on the status of individual cluster nodes, determine the overall state of the cluster.
  • Where an integration management pack exists, determine the health state of a cluster node by looking at the health state of the load balanced application, such as IIS.
  • Alert on errors and warnings that are reported by the NLB driver, such as an incorrectly configured NLB cluster.
  • Take the node out of the NLB cluster if the underlying load-balanced application becomes unhealthy, and add the node back to the cluster when the application becomes healthy again.

BranchCache Technical Overview

Brief Description

This document provides an overview of BranchCache, explains the different modes in which BranchCache operates, and describes how BranchCache is configured. The paper also explains how BranchCache works with Web servers and file servers and the steps BranchCache takes to determine that the content is up-to-date.

Overview

BranchCache™ is a feature in Windows® 7 and Windows Server® 2008 R2 that can reduce wide area network (WAN) utilization and enhance network application responsiveness when users access content in a central office from branch office locations. When you enable BranchCache, a copy of the content that is retrieved from the Web server or file server is cached within the branch office. If another client in the branch requests the same content, the client can download it directly from the local branch network without needing to retrieve the content by using the Wide Area Network (WAN). This document provides an overview of BranchCache, explains the different modes in which BranchCache operates, and describes how BranchCache is configured. The paper also explains how BranchCache works with Web servers and file servers and the steps BranchCache takes to determine that the content is up-to-date.

The BizTalk RFID tutorials contain detailed steps for implementing simple scenarios to give new users an experience of using a variety of BizTalk RFID tools and APIs while creating compiled, testable solutions. You can also find the BizTalk RFID tutorials in the "Getting Started" section of BizTalk RFID help.
• Tutorial: Order Fulfillment - This tutorial shows you how to implement a BizTalk RFID solution for the Order Fulfillment Scenario in an incremental fashion (lesson-by-lesson). At the end of each lesson, you can test the solution to verify that it works correctly. You will develop a solution for the shipping station and then develop a solution for the commissioning station.
• Tutorial: Creating an RFID Device Provider - This tutorial shows how to create a provider by using the Provider Template sample that you can download from the BizTalk Server R2 Code Samples Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83460). The tutorial also shows how to use RFID Manager to test a provider at each step of development instead of implementing the entire provider before starting to test it.
• Tutorial: Supply Chain - The supply chain tutorial walks you through a supply chain scenario that is likely to be used in a manufacturing organization. The supply chain scenario in this tutorial is not intended to be a complete end-to-end scenario, but rather one that illustrates the concepts of how BizTalk RFID can be used. Many of the concepts that you will learn in this tutorial will be repeated in other areas of a real-world supply chain scenario.
• Tutorial: Creating a Device Simulator and Testing a Device Provider - This tutorial walks you through the steps needed to develop a device simulator. The device simulator framework is used to create a device, and the device uses the simulator to send messages in XML format to the provider.

Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides a rich platform for developing database management solutions with easy-to-use customization tools. If no end-user customization is required (including report modifications), you can choose to distribute those Access 2007 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2007. To do so, you must package and distribute your application with the Access 2007 Runtime.
The Access 2007 Runtime is similar to previous runtimes in that all design-related UI is either removed or disabled.
You do not need to buy any special SKU in order to redistribute the Access 2007 Runtime. You can freely redistribute it or point users to this download.
For information about the Access 2007 Developer Extensions, see Access 2007 Download: Access Developer Extensions.
For information about building and distributing solutions that include the Microsoft Office Access 2007 Runtime, see Deploying Access 2007 Runtime-Based Solutions.

ADMX Migrator

Brief Description

ADMX Migrator is a snap-in for the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) that simplifies the process of converting your existing Group Policy ADM Templates to the new ADMX format and provides a graphical user interface for creating and editing Administrative templates.

Overview

ADMX Migrator, which is created and supported by FullArmor, enables you to convert ADM files to the ADMX format and take advantage of the additional capabilities that it provides. The new XML-based format includes multilanguage support, an optional centralized datastore, and version control capabilities.
You can select multiple ADM files for conversion. The ADMX Migrator creates a unique namespace which you can rename and will display a warning if a collision is detected due to duplicate names. Also, any items that cannot be validated against the ADMX schema are preserved in an Unsupported section. Please note that any annotations in ADM files are removed during the conversion process.
Additionally, the ADMX Migrator provides an ADMX editor with a graphical user interface for creating and editing Administrative Templates. You can select settings from menus rather than entering them manually in a text file, speeding template creation and reducing the chance for error.
Version 1.3 includes:
(1) Enhancements and bug fixes to support a wider range of ADM templates for conversion to ADMX.
(2) Enhancements to code and documentation for conversion error reporting and warnings.
(3) Improved stability when editing policy setting registry values on the Values tab.
For support with ADMX Migrator, see http://www.fullarmor.com/admx-migrator-issue-report.htm.
