This months SAGE-AU South Australian Chapter Meeting Details:

“For anyone running Active Directory and using virtualisation and/or machine cloning, this session sounds like a must-attend – come along, and bring your sysadmin colleagues! :)” – Pete Calvert

== What ==

Our very own Pete Calvert is going to shed light on the impact of VMs and cloning on Windows technologies like AD.

>From the notes for the earlier presentation he gave at Tech-Ed:

Customers are looking to further virtualize their environments: file servers, web servers, DNS servers, and even their domain controllers.

It is clear that virtualization provides many benefits in areas such as deployment, disaster-recovery and lowering TCO. However, while virtualization offers many powerful capabilities and greatly simplifies repetitive tasks, it is a technology that must be handled with care when used in conjunction with Active Directory. In this session we review fundamental concepts within Active Directory and the impact of cloning and virtualization upon domain controllers, domain members and Windows in general. We also discuss how to best leverage virtualization and how to both mitigate problems and avoid occurrences in the first place.
