Forefront Protection 2010 for #Exchange Deployment and Performance
This is a good use of 20 mins .. I quite like the format too. Not 100% sure that this is exchange version specific. Dunno if you need to have FPE installed on an Exchange 2010 server.
Alexander Nikolayev joins us again to dive deep into the deployment and some performance for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange
How funky is this
Disk2vhd is a utility that creates VHD (Virtual Hard Disk – Microsoft’s Virtual Machine disk format) versions of physical disks for use in Microsoft Virtual PC or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). The difference between Disk2vhd and other physical-to-virtual tools is that you can run Disk2vhd on a system that’s online. Disk2vhd uses Windows’ Volume Snapshot capability, introduced in Windows XP, to create consistent point-in-time snapshots of the volumes you want to include in a conversion. You can even have Disk2vhd create the VHDs on local volumes, even ones being converted (though performance is better when the VHD is on a disk different than ones being converted).
