About the event

The event will be held at Nobel at Gooimeer 18 in Naarden, the Netherlands from 9AM to 4PM. The website for the event is currently located at the frontpage of, but Nobel also has a nice page with information. Attending the meeting is free of charge. No such thing as a free lunch? Apparently, there is one… and it’s accompanied by free drinks after the event.

My presentation

I’ll be providing a 60 minutes presentation on virtualizing Domain Controllers with Hyper-V.
This blog has seen some exposure on the subject already. All this stuff was covered in the following blogposts:

I think it’ll be fun, though, to actually break some Active Directory Domain Controllers using Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager features, like cloning, snapshots, time synchronization and Online Physical to Virtual (P2V) migrations…

I hope to see you there!


Previous gigs with

You might remember I gave a demo for last November. In forty-five minutes I converted a couple of Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 boxes into a live migration Hyper-V R2 solution to deliver the message that building a live migration cluster with Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 boxes isn’t that difficult.

I had a great time and I guess the organization thought so too, because I’m back!
