- Small network switch with CAT5 cable
- A copy of SBS 2011 Standard from the Microsoft Action Pack, TechNet MSDN, Volume Licensing, or the SBS 2011 Trial (available here).
Note: This is a 6+ GB download, so it’s best put it on a flash drive and not a dual layer DVD. Details for creating a bootable SBS 2011 flash drive are on the blog in a previous post.
Also bring your laptop for taking LOTS of notes.
Matt Hester from Microsoft is attending, and is going to pick up some of the food costs.
Streaming Webcast Details
Time: Sat Jan 29, 2011 9AM – 6PM Eastern
Location: Your personal computer
Note: The remote streaming will happen in 2 parts (9AM – 1PM & 1PM – 6PM). We’ll try to answer questions via the Q&A as time allows. But please keep in mind that on-site attendees will get the primary focus and support, since this is a hands-on event. The streaming is a courtesy (not a remote lab)
