TechNet Live (Netherlands) have just released some videos of a presentation done by fellow Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz. Both these videos are a great watch and Jeremy’s style is as always very entertaining…
The first video “Troubleshooting Group Policy” is the much better version of the session I presented at the last minute at TechEd NZ 2010 (see here Troubleshooting Group Policy) due to Jeremy being quarantined with suspected swine flu.
The other session “Total workstation lockdown: You action plan” shows how you can use Group Policy to configure a lockdown computer configuration.
Not strictly a Group Policy video but it does relate heavy to my Roaming Profiles and Folder Redirection (a.k.a. User State Virtualization) blog post.
Anjli is a program manager on the Windows team. Adam Bomb met with her recently to talk about offline folders and folder redirection in Windows. She talked about how the technologies work, when they should be used, and some of the ways we’ve improved the performance from previous releases. for more info, check out the whitepaper "Choosing an Appropriate User State Virtualization Solution" The Windows team blog also has some good posts on User State Virtualization here and here.
For more video goodness, there’s a 3 part series on user state scenarios located here.
Recently, the SPECOPS Software roadshow "Changes, Challenges and Choices When rolling out Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7" made its way to the Microsoft Alpharetta office in the US. The featured speaker was Jeremy Moskowitz of GPanswers.com. During the break John Baker had the opportunity to sit down with Jeremy and get a quick interview.
You can learn more about the SPECOPS road show series on Jeremy’s Group Policy blog, www.GPanswers.com or on http://www.specopssoft.com/web/seminar-changes-challenges-choices_march.aspx . Feel free to visit my blog at.http://blogs.technet.com/johnbaker.
In this screencast, Matt Hester, Sr. IT Professional Evangelist from Microsoft, takes a quick look at an administrative tool in Windows Server 2008 R2. He outlines two of the great, new enhancements to Group Policy Management: filtering group policy settings and preferences, and controlling the filtering and targeting of the settings.
Adam Bomb sat down with Michael Kleef and Mark Gray in the Group Policy team to talk about the kind of settings in Windows 7 that can be controlled by policy. Mark also gives us a primer on how to troubleshoot group policy issues by turning on GP logging on the client. Find out the latest about Group Policy by following the team blog
