TechDays 2010 - It's over
The Microsoft TechDays 2010 are now finished.
It was a big event (again) with many interesting sessions, demos and lot of people (customer, MSFT's, partners...).
As usual, I was really happy to take part of it, especially in an actively manner by hosting 2 sessions ("Sécurisation des portails d'entreprise avec ForeFront" and "Quoi de neuf dans l'administration SharePoint 2010").
I want to say a big thank you to my fellow partners, Frédéric Esnouf and Patrick Guimonet, which took part on these sessions.
I will publish soon the presentation files, and these sessions (as well as other sessions will be available online - on the MS TechDays site - soon as webcast)
See you next year

Exchange 2010 - SCOM - Finally you can install the MP for Exchange 2010 on SCOM R2
Almost 3 months after releasing the management pack for Exchange 2010, customers which are using SCOM 2007 R2 can now install it.
Indeed, a cumulative update for SCOM R2 is mandatory and was not available until now.
You can download the prerequisite at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974144 and then you will be able to install the management pack.

Office 2010 - SharePoint 2010 - Virtual machine available as free download
This download contains a two Virtual Machine set for evaluating and demonstrating Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Virtual machine “a” contains the following pre-configured software: 1. Windows Server 2008 SP2 Standard Edition x64, running as an Active Directory Domain Controller for the “CONTOSO.COM” domain with DNS and WINS 2. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 Enterprise Edition with Analysis, Notification, and Reporting Services 3. Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007 R2 4. Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 Ultimate Edition 5. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Edition Beta 2 6. Microsoft Office Web Applications Beta 2 7. FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 Beta 2 8. Microsoft Project Server 2010 Beta 2 9. Microsoft Office 2010 Beta 2 10. Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 Virtual machine “b” contains the following pre-configured software: 1. Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Evaluation Edition x64, joined to the “CONTOSO.COM” domain 2. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Active directory has been preconfigured over 200 “demo” users with metadata in an organizational structure. All of these user profiles have been imported and indexed for search within SharePoint Server 2010, with “contoso\administrator” granted administrator permissions. SharePoint Server 2010 has been configured in a “Complete” farm using Kerberos authentication and the default SQL Server 2008 instance for data, and has a site collection created using the Team Site template at http://intranet.contoso.com/ and a FAST Search Center at http://intranet.contoso.com/search/. Performance Considerations 1. If possible, unpack and run the VM image on a separate, fast hard drive (7200 RPM or better) from the operating system of the host machine. If this is being done on a laptop, a second internal drive or external eSATA drive works best, though USB 2.0 (make sure it's 2.0, 1.1 is too slow) or Firewire is acceptable. For absolute best performance use a second internal SSD drive.

SharePoint – ForeFront UAG – Publishing SharePoint internet site

Following my previous post regarding SharePoint publication using UAG (http://blog.hametbenoit.info/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=497), I will now explain how to configure UAG to publish public SharePoint sites.

As for an extranet access, you have to create a trunk.

However, as you will publish a public site, you have to choose 80 port for the trunk.

Then follow the wizard ‘as usual’ (see my previous post about publication using UAG).

Then you have to enable anonymous access.

Go to advanced trunk properties by clicking on the Configure button as shown on the screenshot.


Go to the Authentication tab and disable the option Require users to authenticate at session logon.

If you don’t disable it, Internet client will be redirected to the UAG portal authentication form; this is not something you want for a public site.


However, this is not enough; indeed, when you will connect to your public site, you will have a security window to ask you if you trust the web site or not. This is also something not .. for a public site.


So, to avoid this, you have also to disable Component installation and activation. Go to the Sessions tab and enable the option Disable component installation and activation.


To achieve the publication, add an application as ‘usual’.

Save and activate the configuration.

Et voilà, your public SharePoint site is now published through UAG.
