Back on July 30th, 2009, I presented what ended up being a pretty highly rated webcast on Windows Server 2008 R2 entitled “How Windows Server 2008 R2 Affects Your IT Infrastructure”. And as I’ve done in the past, I promised that soon after I would record the demos and get them up on TechNet Edge as screencast demo recordings. Well, they’re up there now!
“Hey Kevin.. that was July 30th? And here it is September 4th? That not very ‘soon after’, dude.”
Sorry “dude”. I got busy with other things.
“I forgive you.”
Thanks. (Wow.. they’re going to lock me up someday.)
Anyway.. as I said, I finally got them recorded and they are now up and online for your viewing pleasure, entertainment, or.. well.. just plain learning-goodness.
And as a side benefit, I was able to expand out the demos to their full glory, and was even able to add a couple that were in the original session as created. For example, you didn’t see the demo of Fine Grained Password Policies on the webcast. And I didn’t have time to show BOTH the “distributed mode” and “hosted server mode” implementations of BranchCache.
So.. here they are:
- Demo 1 – Exploring the Active Directory Administrative Center
- Demo 2 – Configuring Granular Password Settings
- Demo 3 – Administering Server Core
- Demo 4 – Install and Configure Hosted BranchCache for Web Services
- Demo 5 – Install and Configure Distributed BranchCache for File Services
I sincerely hope you’ll find these useful! (And please let me know in the comments, either there or here, if you do!)
