VHD Library Now Online


A lot of you have been asking for pre-configured VHDs so that you can test some of the latest Microsoft technologies.  We get tons of requests for the VHDs we use when we are on tour, but due to licensing issues (i.e. the Core I|O VHDs were built with my personal TechNet keys) we can't supply them.  I am very pleased to see we have made available a library of some VHDs that will allow you to test out some of these technologies on your own Virtual Server 2005 R2 host server (SP1 Beta 2 for the cool kids out there).  So far there are four, but more will come as things progress.  They VHDs are time bombed for 30 days so don't take these into production, but do download them and get familiar with Windows Server 2003 R2, ISA 2006, Exchange 2007 with Live Communications Server 2005 and SQL 2005 today!!!
