What: BriForum 2011 London Break-out Session – “Server Virtualisation: SUCCESS! VDI: Not So Much. Why VDI Adoption Has Been Slow and How Desktop Virt Will Change the Future”
In this session, VMware vExpert, Citrix CTP, and Microsoft MVP Ron Oglesby will discuss why server virtualisation has been so successful, but desktop virtualisation has had relatively limited acceptance thus far. Ron will also take an in-depth look at the acceptance pattern and reasons for adopting server virtualisation, and talk about why those same reasons are not sufficient to drive adoption of virtual desktops. Tues., May 10 10:25-11:40 Session Breakout Room 3
BriForum 2011 London Breakout Session – “Completely Configuring Your Desktops via Windows 2008 R2 GPOs: How to Live Without "Registry Hacks" in Your Images!”
In this session, Ron will present best practices for GPO implementation for desktops and show you how to completely configure your desktops via group policy in Windows 2008 domains. The configurations will include: basic desktop look and feel; start menus and icons; configuring printers and applications; custom application GPO templates; adding "non standard" registry entries; and applying preferences via the GPO. You’ll learn how to stop hacking your desktop image's registry and, instead, maintain all changes where they are easily found and audited... the AD domain's GPO structure.
