Não percam estes Labcasts em Dezembro!
What is a labcast? An online presentation with guided video demonstrations where you also get the chance to perform these same exercises on your own hands-on virtual lab that we provide during the session. As you face challenges in your lab, our instructors virtually take control of your lab to guide you through the tasks, giving you experience-based knowledge on the Microsoft product or topic. (There are no live instructors if you are watching an on-demand version.)

Agora instala-se, claro está!
*MAS ESPEREM*! Antes de o fazerem, o pessoal do blog You Had Me At EHLO publicou uma informação bastante importante:
- The rollup installer will now make the required modifications to the config files, even create new config files if not found. If customers have already modified the config files and have a generatePublisherEvidence setting, it will be left intact. Note that you still need the right version of .NET (see KB 944752) for the fix to take effect.
- Un-installation of the rollup will not rollback the addition of generatePublisherEvidence to config files.
2) Blank OWA logon page after installation of rollups 3 and 4, if you have modified logon.aspx file
- The rollup installer will now overwrite any OWA script files if required to ensure proper operation of OWA. You will need to redo any customization after installation of the rollup.
Já leram com atenção? OK, então agora estão prontos para a instalação do Update Rollup 5 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB953467). Aqui fica um breve descrição desta actualização:
Update Rollup 5 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) resolves issues that were found in Exchange Server 2007 SP1 since the software was released. This update rollup is highly recommended for all Exchange Server 2007 SP1 customers.
For a list of changes that are included in this update rollup, see KB953467.
This update rollup does not apply to Exchange Server 2007 Release To Manufacturing (RTM). For a list of update rollups applicable to Exchange Server 2007 RTM, refer to the section Update rollups for Exchange Server 2007 RTM in the Knowledge Base article KB937052.
This is a cumulative update rollup and replaces the following:
- KB945684 Update Rollup 1 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB945684)
- KB948016 Update Rollup 2 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB948016)
- KB949870 Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB949870)
- KB952580 Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB952580)
O tamanho da actualização é aproximadamente 66MB (o UR 4 andava à volta dos 40MB). O processo de instalação é bastante simples, basta fazer download do ficheiro de actualização, de acordo com a arquitectura do sistema (x64 ou x86), fazer duplo clique e já está!
A instalação demorou aproximadamente 10 minutos na minha máquina virtual em Hyper-V. Quando o processo terminou pude constatar que a versão do Exchange Server 2007 é agora a 8.1.336.0, o que confirmei pela observação do event ID 1000 no Application Event Log.

Agora que o Tech·Ed EMEA IT Professionals 2008 acabou, é tempo de rever algumas das grandes sessões deste evento. E as boas notícias é que algumas das sessões gravadas estão disponíveis online, mesmo para quem não se tenha inscrito no evento.
Existem algumas que eu gostaria de destacar:
- ESE Internals (Ross Smith IV) - This session provides an in-depth look at the underlying storage technology that is used by Exchange Server. Learn about the changes made in Exchange 2007 SP1 that optimized the Extensible Storage Engine providing the necessary groundwork for enhancements that are coming in future versions of Exchange.
- Windows Mobile as Secure as Blackberry - Are you Joking? (Jason Langridge) - Blackberry is currently seen as the gold standard of mobile security in the enterprise. Windows Mobile devices are as secure (if not even more so). This session covers the key concerns of Enterprise organizations when it comes to deploying Windows Mobile, and how to overcome them.
- Managing Large Infrastructures with PowerShell v2 (Jeffrey Snover) - This session focuses on how to remotely administer both clients and servers throughout your enterprise, using PowerShell V2. Firstly, this session will cover the infrastructure requirements necessary to successfully use PowerShell V2. The session will then introduce and explain PowerShell scripts that solve real world administrative challenges on an enterprise scale.
- PowerShell V2 - the next stage in the IT revolution (Jeffrey Snover) - PowerShell V1 delivered a radically simplified approach to the traditional problem of interactive Shell, Scripting and Admin GUIs. Come and learn how V2 makes it easier to create and debug your scripts with a graphical environment, write production quality scripts using script cmdlets, modules and transactions, manage large distributed environments using WSMAN, improved WMI support and the new Unified Code Execution Model, and write smaller simpler scripts through improvements to the language and new/improved cmdlets.

Quem não teve oportunidade de assistir à conferência Exchange Connections Fall 2008, vai ficar contente por saber que o Devin Ganger decidiu disponibilizar as apresentações que ele deu durante o evento.
Os links estão disponiveis no seu blog:
- (EXC16) The Collaboration Blender -- This session is adapted from the Outlook and SharePoint: Playing Well Together article I wrote for Windows IT Pro magazine (subscription required). Exchange and SharePoint are both touted as collaboration solutions and have some overlapping functionality, so this session explores some of the overlaps and compares and contrasts what each is good for. (In other words, we spend a lot of time talking about Exchange public folders.) And where does Outlook fit into this mess? There's even a handy summary table!
- (EXC17) Exchange Virtualization -- As I confessed to my attendees, this session was a gamble that paid off. Back when I proposed the topic, there was no official statement of Microsoft support for Exchange virtualization (no, "Don't!" doesn't really count). I guessed that by the time November rolled around, Hyper-V would have finally shipped and they'd have shifted that stance -- and I was right. Because I focus more on the Hyper-V side of things, I invited VMWare to send a representative to the session to present their take on the subject. The resulting session was very good, and I learned a bunch of things too.
- (EXC18) Exchange Protection using Data Protection Manager -- Although a lot of the content here was the same material that I've already presented this year (what, 4-5 times now?), I did have to make some changes thanks to the brilliant curve ball that Jason Buffington and his crew in the DPM team threw me. You see, Connections now has all Microsoft speakers speak on one day (imaginatively named "Microsoft Day" for some reason), and that day was Tuesday. While Jason couldn't be here, Karandeep Anand (who is the DPM bomb!) was -- and I've been trading decks and VMs and material back and forth with Jason and Karandeep for over a year now. Rather than give a less brilliant copy of the session Karandeep had already done, I added in some new material focusing on the internals of the Exchange store and how that affects Exchange protection, removed the demo, and really attacked the topic from the Exchange side of things. I think it worked. Either that or it was people staying to get free copies of the DPM book that my publisher thoughtfully provided.
Obrigado Devin ;-)

Agora que o PDC 2008 acabou, é bom saber que as gravações das sessões foram disponibilizadas publicamente. É possível fazer download do vídeo de cada sessão (em formatos WMV e WMV-HQ) e dos respectivos slides em formato PowerPoint.
Na lista de sessões, aparecem 3 de Unified Communication que eu gostaria de destacar:

Está disponível uma nova actualização para o filtro Junk E-mail do Outlook 2003/2007.
O download está disponível para as versões Outlook 2003 e Outlook 2007, ou através do Microsoft Update. Como é habitual, está acompanhado pelo respectivo artigo da Knowledge Base:
"This update provides the Junk E-mail Filter in Microsoft Office Outlook with a more current definition of which e-mail messages should be considered junk e-mail."

Ora aqui está mais uma grande ferramenta disponibilizada pela equipa do Microsoft Exchange: Exchange Server 2007 Mailbox Server Storage Cost Calculator.
In order to move forward with various designs like large mailboxes, IT departments need to understand one of the chief costs associated with Exchange mailbox servers, namely storage. To that end, the Exchange 2007 Mailbox Storage Cost Calculator is designed to help you determine a portion of the mailbox server cost, namely the disk cost (purchase price and lifecycle power and cooling costs). The calculator helps in two ways:
- The calculator takes a series compares a series of storage design configurations and determines their respective costs. The underlying goal here is two-fold:
- To show that you can achieve the same capacity and I/O requirements utilizing Small Form Factor SAS disks for relatively the same cost as Large Form Factor FC disks.
- To show that there are other disk solutions (e.g., SATA) that can be viable and reduce the disk footprint cost.
- In the situation where you are unsure whether you want to deploy Single Copy Clusters (SCC) or Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR), the calculator can compare SCC+SAN disk configurations against CCR+DAS disk configurations from a cost perspective.
Hopefully these measurements will show the value from a cost perspective in considering other disk designs, coupled with large mailboxes and continuous replication.
A Microsoft disponibilizou recentemente o Windows Mobile 6.1 POP and IMAP Send Mail Patch.
This behavior is associated with a feature that is introduced in Windows Mobile 6.1. The feature allows for mobile operators to specify an alternate SMTP server name that is used if e-mail messages cannot be sent by using the user-specified SMTP server name. If the mobile operator does not specify an alternate SMTP server name and if the Windows Mobile 6.1-based device does not connect, the e-mail account is corrupted and cannot send e-mail messages.
O tema principal desta edição é a interoperabilidade, coisas como a interacção com Macs ou com Linux estão bastante bem cobertas nos artigos deste mês.
