Exchange 2010 SP1: Under the Hood

Windows IT Pro has asked me to put together three technical classes for Exchange to be presented January 2011. 

“During this one-day, free online conference, five-time Exchange MVP Steve Bryant will teach you how to:

  • Master the Exchange control panel – In this session, you’ll learn the administrative differences between the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the Exchange Control Panel (ECP), as well as the benefits and available features for end-users, group administrators, and enterprise administrators. Most importantly, we’ll cover the setup scenarios to help introduce you to Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and how it can help you help others to help themselves.
  • Improve Exchange archiving – In this session, we’ll dive deep into the Exchange 2010 SP1 archive functions with an end-to-end scenario for creating a separate archive store (with different HA), adding and managing user archives, managing the auto-archive feature, searching the archive, and directly importing PST files into the archive. Having your cake and eating it too is now possible with SP1.
  • Accomplish high availability databases with Exchange – In this session, we’ll discuss compatibility with Hyper-V, overall storage planning, WAN implications, and end-to-end scenarios for planning, creating, monitoring, and managing DAGs in your environment. We’ll focus on UI and PowerShell cmdlets available with SP1, so even those experienced with this new feature should learn something new”

EDITED: The PPT files are available should anyone like them.
