Today I enjoyed a morning at the Microsoft office in SF attending an event in the current series of TechNet Events. Through the months of September and October, the TechNet Events team is traveling around the US providing tips, solutions and discussion about using Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.
Today’s presentation was given by Chris Henley, who led some lively and informative discussions on three topics – Tools for migration from Windows XP to Windows 7, Securing Windows 7 in a Server 2008 R2 Environment (with Bitlocker, NAP and Direct Access) and new features in Directory Services.
I was excited to see specific information on Active Directory. If you missed the blogs about Active Directory Administrative Center back in January like I did, you’ll like some of the new features in this 2008 R2 tool, including the ability to connect to multiple domains and improved navigation views.
If there isn’t an event near you this time around, check back after the holidays when they’ll head out again for another series.
