Greetings, all,

Christa Anderson here with another MVP blog roundup. This week, MVPs have created lots of new resources. For example, for those interested in Remote Desktop Services, there’s the latest edition of the “VDI Smackdown” (a vendor-neutral analysis of VDI offerings), an evaluation of Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2012, and a new TechNet article series on deploying VDI with Windows Server 2012. Need to troubleshoot Group Policy? A new German-language guide is available. MVPs are also helping with how-to, testing AD and SYSVOL replication with PowerShell, scripting Group Policy management, and showing how to use SCVMM 2012 SP1 create Hyper-V cluster shared volumes, automate patching, and deploy load balanced servers.

If you need to know the latest Knowledge Base articles or Management Packs, MVPs point out the ones they find most important in their blogs and have pointed to a roundup of key hotfixes for clustering. MVPs also
point out new third-party offerings for working with Windows Server 2012 and System Center.

Finally, one MVP asks: why are you still deploying Windows Server 2003?
