All you have to do is contact me using the form in About section, with your name and e-mail address (and a short note that this is about the book giveaway :)) and I’ll be happy to add you to the list.
Once I collect ten of you, I’ll share the list with Packt and they will send you an email with the free eBook.
If you like the book, you can also leave a short review on Amazon.
P.S. As a technical reviewer of this book, I may be a bit biased, but this book is still a great Virtual Machine Manager (2016) resource! 🙂
UPDATE: Big thanks to all that entered the giveaway, now it’s over – I’ve sent info for Dražen, Ljubo, Matt, Sean, Steven, René, Anko, Bob, Johannes and Thomas to Packt (first come, first served). I hope you’ll get your books soon (and that you enjoy them)!
In light of “Microsoft loves Linux” initiative, you can now deploy your Linux virtual machines by using templates in the System Center 2016: Virtual Machine Manager. As I was searching on how to do this (successfully), there were couple of articles that helped, so I’ve decided to do a short list of all the necessary steps (in one place).
Steps to make your Linux VM template deployments work:
create a new (Generation 2) virtual machine (as you would normally do)
install the Linux operating system in that virtual machine (as you would normally do)
HINT: A list of supported Linux distributions and versions on Hyper-V is available here.
install the Linux Integration Services (LIS) (as per this post):
open the “modules” file
add the following to the end of this file:
save it (Ctrl+X and Y)
install LIS and reboot the machine by using the following commands:
It was a great conference, with so many familiar faces (and so many new ones). I didn’t like this year’s venue as much as the last one (let’s be honest – nothing beats a movie theater! ), but it was fine – it’s always about the great people, not the venue itself.
This year I was speaking about the new System Center 2016 suite and, judging by the full room (thank you!), this topic is very hot right now. I really like the new features in Virtual Machine Manager and the new “speedy” Operations Manager (with web portal which finally works in “modern” browsers ).
Slides (which are actually customized Microsoft Ignite slides – thank you), are uploaded to my SlideShare.
And now… looking forward to Advanced Technology Days 13.
I’m also happy that I was selected as a Technical Reviewer of this book and, in a (small) way, helped in creating this awesome resource. My final copy arrived just this morning, and I can’t wait to read it (again).
You can find more info about it (as well as order your copy) here.
