An overview for ITPros, Introducing Windows 8

1 comment November 15th, 2012

If you’d like a glance/overview of Win8 for ITPros, I recomend you to have a look at the “Introducing Windows 8” preview.

Text stolen from the MCP newsletter:

This complimentary e-book explores the great new features Windows 8 offers for IT professionals and businesses. It’s designed to help prepare you for deployment of Windows 8, deliver apps, and manage recovery, security, and virtualization

You can download it from here:

This weekend I attended at the NIC2012 conference in Oslo.

Many interesting sessions were on the schedule like DS MVP Brian Desmond’s “What’s new in Windows Server 8 Active Directory” and “Kerberos uncovered”.

Key notes from WinServer 8 AD:

  • USN Rollback preventions when restoring a snapshot (PDCe needs to be on a Win Server 8 DC)
  • Support for cloning DCs (handy when you have to deploy dozens of them)
  • GUI for the AD Recycle Bin and Fine Grained Password Policy
  • Dcpromo.exe is gone (you promote a DC from the server manager)
  • AD delivers the mechanism for file server access with Claims Based Authentication
  • A huge amount of new Powershell cmdlets

Unfortunately it looks like the video for this session is missing, though I’d recommend you to have a look at some other sessions like:
