As I build or upgrade some VMs in the labs weekly I decided to put these keys in a little blog post for me to find them easily. I intend to update this post if and when new keys are needed. Do not worry, these are public, so I do not break any license agreement here.
From Windows Server 2022 Preview before build 20344
From Windows Server 2022 Preview since build 20344
A short reminder that this is prerelease software
First of all, I will quote Microsoft here.
Windows Server Insider Preview builds may be substantially modified before they are commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here. Some product features and functionality may require additional hardware or software. These builds are for testing purposes only. Microsoft is not obligated to provide any support services for this preview software.
Secondly, I remind you that Microsoft loves that you test the builds and provide feedback. Just do not use this for anything in production. That’s it folks, happy testing folks.
I have the distinguished honor of announcing that I am speaking at the Experts Live Netherlands 2019 conference.
This conference is a high quality event for ICT professionals in any role in any place. Infrastructure, DevOps, DevSecOps, 0365, automation as well as data & service availability and protection in any cloud (private, hybrid and pubic). Over the years it has proven to be an excellent conference that has grown fat beyond the Dutch borders. It’ both rewarding and humbling to be able to speak there.
RDMA & SMB 3: State of the union
I will be giving a state of the union on RDMA & SMB Direct. We’ll look at best practices, guidance, trends and current developments that are interesting to decision makers, analysts, architects and hands on professionals that work with SMB Direct in ever more use cases.
As always I’ll be around the entire day to learn and educate myself, networking and I am available to talk shop on any subject within my area of expertise.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018 Microsoft hosts a virtual Windows Server Summit. It will help you get up to speed with many important capabilities in Windows Server (2016 – 2019). This is very much needed as I see even many integrators & service companies not doing enough with these capabilities. In many cases they are out maneuvered by their customers who move fast in regards to their on premises need just like they do for their hybrid & public cloud needs.
As a service provider and integrator your days are numbered if you’re going to stick to slow cycles & slow down tactics when it comes to making money. The ecosystem is changing. As compute becomes a commodity you’ll need to re-think how to deliver value.
Windows Server Summit
This virtual experience will help your with tips and tricks for modernizing your infrastructure and applications—regardless of whether you’re running it on-premises or in the cloud.The featured speakers are well know in the Wintel ecosystem and are well positioned to bring your up to speed.
There are 4 track next to the keynote and I recommend you attend to “upgrade” your insights in Windows Server as there is a lot more to learn and investigate beyond what will be addressed here!
Application platform (containers on Windows Server)
The Windows Server Summit, on June 26th, starts at 18:00 UTC +1 and goes on until +/- 22:00. If you attend live you’ll have the opportunity to engage in the Q&A. All sessions are recorded so you can watch them afterwards ass well. Grab the opportunity to stay relevant for your business and your customers. It’s free and registration is only need if you want to receive updates only. Come as you are when you want to.
So if you’d like or need to find out what containers are al about and if they are something for you or not you’ll want to attend this webinar.
Ben Armstrong (@vBenArmstrong) has been the driving force behind Hyper-V, a great hypervisor, that also happens to power Azure and yes containers (nested virtualization anyone?). Andy Syrewicze from Altaro will be moderating this Ask Me Anything (AMA) webinar with Ben to answer all your burning questions about containers in the Microsoft ecosystem.
Topics that will be addressed are:
Industry adoption of containers
Container and micro-services examples
Best practices for deployment
The future of containers
Talking to Ben,listening to Ben is always an educational process. He makes you think about the subject and the ecosystem it exists in. So do yourself a favor. Grab a slot this webinar. If you have any question you can send them via the hastag #AskBenArmstrong on any social media platform and get it answered.
