Windows Server 2012 – Deep Dive!


Good Morning guys. As I’m doing a deep dive into Windows Server 2012 features and functionality, I’ve decided to share with you my spoils. Each of these PDF will elaborate in-depth of how these features works!

Among the top features of Windows Server 2012 are as follows:

  1. Management & Automation
  2. Storage
  3. Hyper-V
  4. Networking
  5. Identity and Access
  6. VDI

These datasheets will help you to understand that Windows Server 2012 isn’t just another operating system but a built-in power-pack technology suite!

Demo for Live Migration of VM without SAN Storage.


Hope your Tuesday’s great! I have some spare time and thought of uploading some demo\video that I’ve found from Microsoft Virtual Academy!

This is a demo of Live Migration(vMotion) with NO SAN Storage.
It’s a 2x Physical Hyper-V Host with a network cabled connected to each other.

Point to note is that while the ping drops, the file copy continues to run.

All New Windows Server 2012

Hi All,

A quick update about me, I’m now attached with Microsoft as a Regional TSP for Datacenter. Moving on, I would like to do more sharing starting with a sneak preview of a Demo Video from Rick Claus & Michael Leworthy sharing about the new SMB (Storage Pool & Storage Spaces) and how it work together with Hyper-V 2012 to provide an explosion of possibilities for our customers!

I’ve also found interesting Walk-Thru Slide Decks from TechEd Europe 2012!

Boot2VHD: Switching between Hyper-V & Native VHD Boot Disk

I have a PC that is installed with Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition to run all my Virtual Machines and at the same time, I would like to use this same PC as my Media PC(Windows 7) watching & downloading music/torrents and etc *ahem*

Being a kiasu I am, while performing my test, I would also like to have my Media PC(Windows 7) running as virtual machine continuing to download my torrents. When I’m done with my testing, I would like to Boot2VHD to my Media PC(Windows 7) to enjoy full fidelity my PC can bring!

Now, this is an easy concept but has taken me days being an idiot I am to enable this to work! Thanks to the following post:

  2. http://iamrobertsworry.livejournal.com/

So in short, I would like to share the steps I took to enable this!

  1. Create a virtual machine and install Windows 7
  2. Perform Sysprep with Generalize option checked
  3. Using EasyBCD add a new entry via Disk Image
  4. Restart your PC to Windows 7
  5. Start Regedit – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\intelide and change the “Start” value to “0”
  6. Restart to your Windows Server 2012

With that easy steps above, I’m able to enjoy my lil concept!
