There is a new page on the TechNet Wiki “What's Considered Quality Technical Content?” that offer you the opportunity to help define the metrics the community will use to judge “quality” attributes of technical content.
It is easy to sign up and contribute on the TN Wiki. Pile on!
The TechNet Articles page on the TechNet Wiki shows a table of contents for the wiki *above the fold*
however, if you scroll down, you can see some nifty feeds such as “All Pages” that shows you new and updated pages, and which update # it is.
Also available, “New” and “Updated” filter tabs.
Give the wiki a try and let us know your feedback.
Just in time for Mid-Year Reviews here at Microsoft the TechNet profile now shows your TechNet Wiki activity!

If you don’t read French, I can explain that the title of this post “ordinateur virtuel stocké “ translated into English (according to the Microsoft Language Portal) is:
“An inactive virtual machine that has been saved to the Virtual Machine Manager library. The virtual machine's virtual hard disks (.vhd files) and virtual machine configuration file (.vmc file) are stored on a library share. “
According to Bing Translator (which can be found at http://www.microsofttranslator.com/ – guess this naming thing is confusing, hunh?) it means “Stored virtual machine.”
Me, If I’m trying to figure out SEO or how to find the right fix for an error message in another language than my own, I’m using the Language Portal.
Thank you comrades.

Hyper-V VM guest (Windows Server 2003) on a Windows Server 2008 R2 host “randomly” loses network connection.
Unable to ping the VM from the host. On login to the VM error message “The system cannot log you on now because the domain <domainname> is not available.”
Restarting the VM appears to solve the problem in the short term, but at some future time it re-occurs.
There are no useful messages in the Hyper-V log “Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-SynthNic-Admin.evtx or the VM Windows Server 2003 system/application event log.
Host: Install the rollup package for the Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2008 R2 (KB2264080 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2264080). Because the VM OS is Windows Server 2003, install the following updates:
Virtual Machine: Update the Integration Components in the VM

Some Hotmail users have recently been confused by fake login pages, like this one:
How to spot a fake Hotmail log in page:
1. The real Hotmail sign-n page does NOT host Ads.
2. The URL of the login page MUST be login.live.com and nothing else
Please drive awareness so that folks do not get taken in by those who wish to steal account information and spread malware.
IT Pros have long asked for a “change log” on technical information from Microsoft. For example, the Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 Guide to Operations Manager Integration shows this right up font:
For decades now inside Microsoft TOC has stood for Table of Contents. In this new age of “good enough” text search, should TOC now mean Table of Changes?
Instead of a new doc on “Foo Technology” per version or revision of said technology – each with a new title and URL, would you prefer one uber-doc that allows you to see and understand the current state, yet also “step back” through previous versions?
Kinda like the “History tab” on articles in the TechNet Wiki (Beta):
The “Compare Versions” button allows you to view the changes from any version in the tree with any other version. Additions are highlighted in Green, deletions in Red:
