  • Blog Post: Find out more about Exchange 12

    I have to share this one with you - in around three weeks time, there's a series of webcasts on Exchange 12 running over 4 days.

  • Blog Post: Blogcast on Virtual Server Migration Toolkit (VSMT) - Part 1

    Blogcast, podcast, mini-webcast.... What's in a name - well quite a lot judging by some of the reactions I've had.

  • Blog Post: Troubleshooting WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation)

    One other webcast also spotted this morning - this one should be really good. WMI is an incredibly powerful tool for an IT Professional to have available.

  • Blog Post: Automated Deployment Services (ADS) 1.0 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 Gotcha

    This seemed a timely reminder with my webcast on Windows Server 2003 SP1 this afternoon. A small gotcha which caught me out last week when installing an ADS controller was that when ADS asks for the Windows Server 2003 media, you must use the RTM version, not a slipstreamed SP1 media. The ADS services...
