Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.
If you can’t be bothered reading the details – simply use this? :-) Because the Windows 7 Beta will be offered download-only, it will be provided to you as an ISO image (an .iso file) that you download. more details below And just in case you are interested in the Keynote at CES from Steve Ballmer regarding the release of Windows 7 Windows 7 Home Page ......

So I have been asked a few questions regarding FBWF (File Based Write Filter) in the last few days and thought this might also be useful to others? By default in XP Embedded there is a component called EWF (Enhanced Write Filter) that acts as an overlay to catch actions that require write access like the Cache for the browser and these are discarded ......

So I don't know if anyone has noticed something similar recently but shortly after my recent trip away I found that my Posts via "Windows Live Writer" were somehow being truncated or something similar and the Paragraph and Tagging syntax was getting muddled on my WordPress site. At first I thought it might be Windows Live Writer as I had recently upgraded ......

Recently I found myself at a school down near Melbourne carrying out what should have been a relatively simple PoC (Proof of Concept) of 20 x BC2500 BladePC’s in an Enclosure with some T5730 Thin Clients, and initially all went pretty well and then I found that I had some issues with the SAM Registration service….. from the BladePC’s not communicating ......

One thing I do enjoy when travelling in the US is getting up to date on some of the Magazines that I don’t always get a chance to get hold of, or get a chance to read, as there’s usually a lot of time sitting in Aircraft or Airports? ;-) I caught this article in the PC Mag and found it quite useful, but I’ve cut their list down to the 11 that I thought ......

So anyway, I figured that with the stories getting around regarding the recent PDC that there would be Virtual Machines of Windows 7 being handed out on the portable Hard drives that it wouldn't take long for them to appear on Torrent sites etc... And so it would appear ;-) Download 64-bit Windows 7 6801 Pre-Beta ISO (Microsoft.Windows.7.64Bit.... ......

So it's been quite some while since I last did a post of any kind as I was away from Aust. sailing and sampling the hospitality in the British Virgin Islands thanks to my brother (thanks Martin), and then on to New York City, and finally London and Guilford (thanks to Lou and David) before making it back home. Incidentally just before leaving for this ......

Hi All, Just a note regarding an issue I had to help resolve a little while back? Issue: We had a pre-sealed image of an XPe intended for a customer, who wanted to join it to the domain, come through and during testing at our location and on site for the customer it was found that it simply refused to get it's time in sync Research: What we able to ......

So I have been very quiet of late and there really is no excuse, I guess I just needed a bit of a break? But as we look around the Global Markets this morning I can barely believe the amount of the drop on Wall St. overnight - the Dow Jones being down some 7+% doesn't even do it justice - looking at how the individual sectors have fared makes it look ......

Given that Hyper-V has now just been released as RTM it’s likely that more people are looking at the product and quite possibly for the first time so this sort of information might be very useful? 10 commonly asked questions or issues seen during Hyper-V beta With the RTM release of Hyper-V just around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to ......

So this mornings news from Alessandro is the release of Hyper-V - Download a trial here. I have also included at the bottom of this post a number of links that Justin Zarb helped collate regarding where to find all kinds of info relating to Hyper-V Release: Microsoft Hyper-V 1.0 Thursday, June 26, 2008 | 0 Comments | After over three years of development ......

While the deployment we were assisting with today was maybe not that large even by local standards the issue was something that comes up on a some what regular basis. A customer wants to have a number of Thin Clients imaged to their specifications and then drop-shipped to various locations ready to go. Part of this involves creating and applying Asset ......

Well as far as I am aware, XPe as it stands to day will be available through till sometime in 2010, but it seems more news is getting out about is’s possible Vista based replacement? My personal view is that MS should take a deep hard look at the *LACK* of take up and interest in Vista before heading down this path anytime soon – but that doesn’t mean ......

So if you have a look at the MSTSC.EXE file that starts the RDP session and use the /? to call further info from the component you get something very much like this: But if you dig a just a touch deeper you will find that the MS Terminal Services Client or RDP Client as it is more commonly known draws the config information for most of its settings ......

I have an old blog site at www.geekswithblogs.net/wall... as well as the new one at www.techagility.info and things have been very quiet for the last three weeks or so as I have been under something of a cloud. It would appear that at some stage I may have inadvertently upset someone with one of my posts – and rather than approach me to discuss this ......
