TechEd 2011: Day 3 Review and Random Photos

Today was a very busy day, as opposed to the other days that were just busy.  :)

I started with the session, "Exchange Server 2010 High Availability Management and Operations" with Scott Scnoll.  GREAT session with clear concise explanations of the cmdlets and scripts written for Exchange 2010 about HA and DR.  All of the content was new this year.  Be sure to view it at TechEd online.  The session is now available for download.

Next, I took in another security session, "Rethinking Cyber Threats: Expert Panel" with Laura Chappell, Marcus Murray, and Paula Januszkiewicz.  Topics included security, government regulations, IPv6 threats, and "How do you fix stupid".  I was able to ask Marcus if Mark Russinovich detected the keylogger Marcus installed on his laptop at the MVP Summit using SysInternals tools, or if he just reimaged.  The answer was, "That's under NDA. I want to come back next year."

I then went to my first Lync session, "Troubleshoot Microsoft Lync 2010".  All the Lync troubleshooting tools were covered except Snooper, for some reason.  What I found interesting was when he showed how to use the monitoring server to get metrics on call and video performance.

I had a TechEd focus group to end my day and then went back to the hotel to get ready for the real UC Roundtable.

The Security Experts Panel.
