Windows Server 2008 R2 provides a productive server platform because it offers cost-effective virtualization, power-saving capabilities, and a superior experience for end users. In this hands-on lab, we focus on the enhancements made to Active Directory in Windows Server 2008 R2. We also show you how you can leverage the Best Practice Analyzer to improve compliance with established standards and best practices. Finally, we provide an overview of two new features in Windows Server 2008 R2: the ability to run ASP.NET apps on Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5 running on Server Core and BranchCache, a technology that can help organization reduce bandwidth utilization.

During this lab, we will cover:

  • What’s New in Active Directory: We review some of the enhancements made to Active Directory. Discuss the benefits of the new forest level and how it provides new functionality like the Recycle Bin.  Review the enhanced Active Directory Administrative Center and how the new cmdlets in Windows PowerShell ease Active Directory management.
  • Best Practices Analyzer, IIS, ASP.NET, and Server Core: We show how this tool can help you save money by reducing the time it takes to implement an infrastructure that adheres to best practices. Learn how to take advantage of the benefits of Server Core to run the most critical Microsoft ASP.NET applications.
  • BranchCaching:  BranchCache can help increase network responsiveness of centralized applications when accessed from remote offices.

Registration:  This event requires registration due to the limited number of seats & resources available online.  If you are a customer of mine, contact me for information about participating.

What is a virtual hands-on-lab:
This isn’t your typical IT class. A hands-on lab online is an invite only event that combines LiveMeeting with a virtual lab.  Attendees and presenters login from anywhere. Attendees watch a brief LiveMeeting presentation, then spend most of the time getting hands-on experience working through all, or just self-selected modules of the entire lab – at their own pace, and receive real–time, personal, one-on-one attention from the presenter.  In addition, there’s a proctor available for technical support and to answer more attendee questions.
