ESXi 5.1 Free – how to run nested Hyper-V

How-to run nested Hyper-V 2012 Server on latest version of ESXi 5.1 If you want to test the latest Microsoft Hyper-V running as a VM on ESXi 5.1 free version, you might run into a following error: “Hyper-V cannot be installed: A hypervisor is already running.” when trying to install the Hyper-V role. In ESXi 5.1 free version the tweak slightly changed (compared to ESXi 5.0) and it’s much easier to install the Hyper-V role, to actually enable Hyper-V as a VM with the possibility to run second level nested 64bit VMs inside of that...

Publishing Exchange Server 2013 using TMG

Why’s that? Well, as you’ll have gathered from other posts on this fine blog, we re-wrote OWA for Exchange 2013. And... [Lire la suite]

MailboxGuid @ SMTP Domain Is The New Endpoint In Outlook For Exchange 2013 Mailboxes

All Exchange admins are so used to seeing the name of the server / fqdn of the VIP in the server entry of the outlook profile.

Let me explain the new concept with an example. My mailbox has a primary smtp address of Rajith@Exchangemaster.me and the server entryin my outlook profile is as shown below. This... [Lire la suite]

Windows Server 2012 File Server Tip: Switch to the High Performance power profile

When you install a fresh copy of Windows Server 2012 and configure it with the File Server role, the default Power Setting balances power efficiency and performance.

To get the absolute best performance from your file server, you can set the server to the "High Performance" power profile. To configure this using a GUI, go to the Start Menu, search for...
