A very nice surprise.
At TechEd they have added more sessions to the DataCenter track and that means I’ve got a new session!
Bare Metal OS Deployment in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager: This is How it is Done!
System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 has bare metal OSD deployment built-in. This session is all about that. You will learn how to do discover, how to deal with drivers, networking and you will learn how to troubleshoot the process and most of all you will learn how to NOT troubleshoot, since you will learn how to do it correctly. You will also see how to deal with hardware configuration, firmware and such, expect lots of demos and PowerShell.
As you can see the session will be focusing on bare metal deployment, something I have been doing for many years now. Besides the actual deployment I will also show you how to do the network and storage related configuration to get VMQ to work correctly and some other stuff. This is going to be fun!
Note: If you are going to TechEd and you do join the session, please, step up to the podium and say hi.
