X-Mas @TechNetDK

Again this year Microsoft TechNet Denmark is playing Santa. On each weekday in December, you can test your knowledge in a daily quiz for Danish IT Professionals, and I’ve got the honor to host 3 of those questions.

Every morning (on weekdays) at 9 am (+1 GMT) during December, Bjarne Dollerup will introduce one of the Danish MVP’s or TechNet Influencer on his blog, and share a link to a blog, where you’ll find the question of the day. All you need to do, to win the prize, is to be the first to the answer the question, and send it to the mail address specified right below the question. Answers to all questions should be available on the TechNet website.

The first to send the correct answer to the mail address specified in the blog post, will win one of the great “geek” prizes sponsored by Microsoft, so don’t forget to let us know how to get in touch with you, and where we should send the prize if you win…

The quiz does not start until it has been publicly announced by Bjarne, so no need to start sending mails until it’s been announced…

Blogcast: Windows Server “8”

Looking into the the near future we’ll see the first BETA of Windows Server “8” and we’ll be introduced to a lot of new interesting technology and updated roles/features. With this blogcast I’ll try to help understanding these new features and what Windows Server “8” technology can do to help companies “work smarter”.

I do not know the exact date for the BETA release but I assume we’ll see it before the end of this year.

Some of the things I’ve planned to cover are:

  • Install Methods
  • Full GUI vs no GUI with Server Core
  • Installing roles and features
  • METRO GUI
  • Multi-Server Management with the New Server Manager
  • Active Directory
  • Hyper-V v3
  • Branch Cache
  • DFS
  • File system and security/Classification
  • Deduplication
  • Windows To Go
  • DirectAccess
  • Powershell
  • ….and a bunch of other news

But for now let’s enjoy the new simplified Metro style logon and UI
