    Hey Dan,

    The cert I was refencing MCSE Cloud Platform and Infrastructure. You can see from this link it is now retired.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcse-cloud-platform-infrastructure.aspx

    I think az-900 is a great place to get started. We have the course on our roadmap. It can help you transition to the az-103 and from there you can choose areas of specialty to become an expert.

    Microsoft learning has decent free labs that can help if you're just getting started. Using the free credit in the Azure platform is probably my top recommendation, for now.

    Dan,
    So to hear about the test. The good news is your studies can be utilized with the newer md exams! Also, I'm glad you were able to get the C.R.A.P :)

    @Daniel-Loyer This show was shot towards the end of last year. There was an earlier version I think Mike was the SME. Anyway, yes you are correct the 70-698 retires March 31, 2019. The MD-100 and MD-101 would be similar replacements.
    I hope this helps provide clarification.
    Thank you,
    Cherokee

    Hi guys,
    You are correct major exam changes were announced last week. I wrote a blog to explain the changes. You can find that here:
    https://blog.itpro.tv/what-is-going-on-over-at-microsoft-az-100-101-and-103-explained/
    Luckily, most of the objective in the new az-103 are the EXACT same as the az-100. We will continue recording based upon the new az-103 objectives. You should see it on the site soon! Also @Daniel-Loyer I 100% agree with a Book as a Service product. Everything is changing so rapidly it's impossible for authors/ publishers to keep up and stay relevant (imo).
    Kindly,
    Cherokee

    Dan,
    Thanks for watching and reaching out! Yes, you are correct. I did misspeak the blue is network and orange is host. Thank you for catching that. I am getting that fixed :). You are also correct to notice the use of different hypervisors. For display purposes I sometimes choose to use VMware but if it is an actual exam objective I will use Hyper-V, its really about preference. There are requirements as follows:
    -Windows 10 Enterprise, Pro, or Education
    -64-bit Processor with Second Level Address Translation (SLAT).
    -CPU support for VM Monitor Mode Extension (VT-c on Intel CPUs).
    -Minimum of 4 GB memory.

    With that being said 4 GB of memory would be miserable. 8 GB may allow a couple to run at the same time but the more RAM you can get the better. It is best think about what that workload sum will look like in terms of resources. You have to slice up and allocate from the original source pool to give to your VMS. As far as another instructor running Hyper-V on home edition... just about anything CAN be done with a bit of effort. However, look at the Microsoft link I have provided. If you are planning to take a Microsoft exam I would follow their guidance on this one. I hope that helps. It sounds like you are doing great with you studies! Please feel free to stay in touch as you continue your journey!

    @adam-tyler said in Svr 16 and deduplication support after build 1709:

    Adam,
    I know this can be tricky, I've never seen an exam update pattern and I don't know how often they are updated. Personally, I look at the objective update notes to compare it with a feature release date. I've came across several outdated questions on Microsoft exams and I answer them based on the old info depending on the objective update date that can be found on the exam overview page from Microsoft. If I see that they have recently updated them I answer with the new answer.
    Kindly,
    Cherokee

    Adam,
    No I am the one that made the mistake. For whatever reason I was thinking the current time was 5:29 AM leaving the file shy just a couple hours. You are right. I did see the mistake though. The file length is 12400 and the minimum file size is 32768 so the file doesn't meet that particular size requirement, not time. Sorry for the confusion.

    Adam,
    If the cluster has Roles you will want to "Drain" the VM prior to removal. Draining can be performed from within the Failover Cluster Manager or PowerShell. I show how to do this in the 70-740 show. Looking at some of the questions you have been asking I think episode "Manage Failover Clustering" will help with some of the failover and failback setting options and "Manage VM Movement in Clustered Nodes" would help with removing the VM from the cluster. Live Migration was originally, designed to be used with clustering, but you are right to know the local Hyper-V Manager would be responsible for the Live Migration of the VM once it has been evicted form the cluster. I hope this helps!

    Adam,
    I wouldn't expect the VM to restart. Can you repeat this action to verify there is a correlation with these settings rather than an external variable?
    Thanks,

    Adam,
    On the switch you specify the management switch with the integer input field. On the individual VM's use the integer input field to specify which VLAN on the virtual switch that machine should be a part of. If a company has to comply with certain industry requirements such as out of band management you can have a VLAN for data traffic and a separate VLAN for management traffic.

    Thank you,
    Cherokee
