  • Can you use PowerShell with DPM 2007?

    Glad you asked! Yes, you have a wide array of DPM cmdlets coming your way with DPM 2007 -- look for them in the beta 2 release. DPM Management Shell installs with DPM 2007 and can also be installed on remote computers to administer your DPM servers.

    Are you ready for DPM Management Shell? You might want to look into the available PowerShell training first, or download a free ebook on PowerShell. (I really like the book's subtitle: "An introduction to scripting technologies for people with no real background knowledge.")

  • Microsoft interns: the music video

    After watching this, I've got the new lyrics running through my head..."I can't believe it ends so soon, just another intern going back to school..."

    A tip for watching this video: go to full screen, at least for the opening. I love what they did with Clippy!

  • DPM 2007 Beta 2 Overview (webcast)

    I know I posted last week about our upcoming webcast that will provide a great walkthrough and overview of DPM 2007 Beta 2 -- but it's gone. No sign it ever existed, except in my memory and utter certainty that I did it (frightening feeling, that!).

    So here it is again, for anyone who didn't see last week's announcement. And fortunately there's still time to put it on your calendar:
