Microsoft Specialist – 70-398 Planning For And Managing Devices In The Enterprise – Exam Now Live

Overnight I received notification that the results were in for those who sat the beta version of the 70-398 Planning For And Managing Devices In The Enterprise, and thankfully I’d managed to get through.

Windows Server 2016 Essentials TP3 Integration With Azure Virtual Networks Part 2

In the last post I covered what was required (very little, apart from an Azure subscription!) with Windows Server 2016 Essentials Technical Preview 3 to set up an Azure Virtual Network, but and today I’ll switch over to the Azure management portal so that we can see what was created for us.
