Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Windows Server 2008 RC1 with Hyper-V Beta is publicly available here:
Beta Integration Components for Linux available through connect.microsoft.com:
1. Login to https://connect.microsoft.com/default.aspx
2. Click on Available Connections in the left panel.
Review the available programs and apply for the Linux Integration Components for Microsoft Hyper-V.
after installing 2008 RC1, at the initial log in screen, when I try to change my password. I get the following:
unable to update password. value provided does not meet the length, complexity or history requirements of the domain
This is normal. A complex password would be a combination of alphanumeric characters plus special characters. For instance, P@ssw0rd is a valid complex password.
