Comments
  • Michael,

    Tough ask getting this down to 3!(I've commented on Chucks blogs as well)

    I would be looking for sessions that I cant read out of public whitepapers etc. The rest I could read at some point.

    So the big question is which ones:
    ** Admin Scripting: Windows Server 2003 R2 and Beyond
    ** Cross-Platform Password Management with Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 (MIIS)
    * Server and Domain Isolation: The Next Big Thing in Security and Infrastructure Integrity Assurance


    They would be my picks.

    Good luck,

    Mick.
