App-V Server doesn’t like .NET Framework 4.0


App-V server doesn’t like .NET Framework 4.0 installed before App-V server IIS configuration for streaming server. Simple solution – uninstall .Net 4.0 – install App-V, configure and set up IIS – re-install .Net 4.0 (if you really need it Smile)

Configuration Manager R3 released!!!


The System Center team is very excited to announce the release of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3.  This release is a significant accomplishment for the engineering team for a lot of reasons.  Not only does ConfigMgr R3 drive new scenario support to existing world class capabilities, it raises core functionality to new levels of industry leading status.

ConfigMgr is already known as a product capable of managing the world’s largest enterprise infrastructures, across the biggest, most distributed and most complex of customers.  With ConfigMgr R3, we increase this to 300,000 managed clients per hierarchy, a number unmatched in the market today.  In achieving this unparalleled position, the team managed to revisit a number of areas of the core product, and drive use case scenarios towards the concept of real time management.

By tightening our key relationship to Active Directory with finer, more granular polling and delta monitoring, and marrying this with a new ability to rapidly populate those changes into collections; organizations will find a more responsive platform that meets their business needs, not just those of IT.  Real world scenarios have impacted these changes, and we are excited to demonstrate our response to these challenges.

In addition to all of these performance improvements, we have listened to our customers, and understand that with technology demands, you also need to save money, and lower the cost of IT in running a business.  When combined with competitive, environmental and regulatory pressure, it is really exciting to deliver centralized, policy based Power Management “in box”.  This feature alone will drive down the cost of running systems, from the same admin console ConfigMgr Admins have used for over a decade.  Using the same client, the same policy system, and the same processes our other features take advantage of, Power Management is going to drive down the cost of IT like no other feature.  Organizations are already sharing unsolicited data about their savings.  A 20,000 seat organization recently reported that through early conservative power management policies, they will save approx. $500,000 per year.  These kinds of capabilities make a real difference.

ConfigMgr R3 sets a new bar in the evolution towards user centric client management.  Elements now available within R3 are early looks at what you can expect moving forward with ConfigMgr v.Next.

The core capabilities in System Center Configuration Manager R3 are extended by offerings from a number of partners.  1E NightWatchman software extends administrative flexibility, user empowerment and reporting.   When combined with R3, these provide an example of a best of breed power management solutions for PCs.  The below links provide some additional information about 1E as well as partners  Verdiem and Adaptiva. In particular, about how these partner solutions extend our core functionality.

Manage Citrix with SC Configuration Manager

SC ConfigMgrMicrosoft: The Citrix Connector for System Center Configuration Manager

The System Center team is working in partnership with Citrix to integrate the management of XenApp with Configuration Manager. We’ve put together a white paper that outlines how the new capabilities can be used to improve enterprise application management. The Citrix Connector for Configuration Manager will enable unified management of applications across the desktop and XenApp Server farm environment. The connector enhances Configuration Manager, enabling administrators to orchestrate the tasks required to deliver applications to XenApp Servers and publish XenApp hosted applications seamlessly and with minimal impact to the user.

The Citrix Connector for Configuration Manager infrastructure will enable application deployment to target devices (non-managed, non-Windows, smartphone, and thin client) that couldn’t be managed before with Configuration Manager alone. Typical Configuration Manager packages and programs are reused and delivered to XenApp servers. The Citrix Connector for Configuration Manager populates collections with XenApp Farms, Folders and Worker Groups for targeting application deployment. In the end, application deployment is accomplished by a coordination of Configuration Manager task sequence advertisements and Citrix Power and Capacity Management, created with the familiar Configuration Manager console that orchestrates the application installation on XenApp servers.

Spravovat Citrix s SC Configuration Manager

SC ConfigMgrMicrosoft: Citrix konektor pro System Center Správce konfigurace

System Center tým pracuje v partnerství s Citrix integrovat řízení XenApp pomocí Správce konfigurace. Dali jsme dohromady dokument white paper, který popisuje, jak lze použít nové možnosti ke zlepšení správy podnikových aplikací. Citrix konektor pro správce konfigurace umožňuje jednotnou správu aplikací po celé ploše a prostředí XenApp serverové farmy. Karabiny zvyšuje Správce konfigurace, umožňující správci organizovat úkoly potřebné k poskytování aplikací XenApp serverům a publikovat XenApp hostované aplikace hladce a s minimálním dopadem na uživatele.

Citrix konektor pro správce konfigurace infrastruktury umožní nasazení aplikací na cílové zařízení (nespravované, non-Windows, smartphone a tenký klient), které nelze spravovat před s konfigurací Správce sám. Typická konfigurace správce balíčků a programů jsou opakovaně a do XenApp servery. Citrix konektor pro správce konfigurace naplní sbírky s XenApp farmy, složky a pracovní skupiny pro cílení nasazení aplikace. Nakonec je nasazení aplikací dosaženo koordinace Správce konfigurace úlohy sekvence reklamy a Citrix moci a řízení kapacity, vytvořené pomocí známé konzoly Správce konfigurace, která podílí instalace aplikací na serverech XenApp.

Jak zvýšit velikost diferencujících disků

-vypnutí virtual machine
-Spusťte nástroj Správce technologie Hyper-V a měnit vlastnosti virtuálního stroje
-vyberte virtuální rozdílový disk na zvyšování
-klepněte na tlačítko Upravit a vyberte korespondence
-v průvodci akce korespondence vyberte sloučit do nové virtuální pevný disk a dát název nového virtuálního pevného disku
– pak můžete zvolit, zda bude pevný nebo dynamicky se rozšiřující diskové
-dokončení průvodce korespondencí
-Nyní máte nový virtuální pevný disk
-měnit vlastnosti virtuálního stroje a změňte cestu k virtuální harddisk do nově vytvořeného virtuálního pevného disku
-potvrzení změn
-nyní virtuální stroj má nové pevné/dynamicky se zvětšující disk
-měnit vlastnosti virtuálního stroje a vybrat virtuální disk a klepněte na tlačítko Upravit
-Vyberte rozbalit akci a dokončení průvodce s hodnotami
-operační systém start a přejděte na Storage – Správa disků ve Správci serveru
-měli byste vidět volné freespace v tam, tak zvolte stávající oddíl a zvolte Rozbalit disku akci
Jak jednoduché! 🙂
