Last paragraph

"A third disadvantage of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 is that, unlike WDS, you can't use it to deploy an operating system to a bare-metal system." A bare-metal install using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 is a supported scenario. Source: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb694215.aspx

Note from the Author or Editor:
The link in question instructs the user to create bootable media and then boot the bare-metal machine from this bootable media by inserting the media physically at the computer. This is not the same as remotely installing an OS onto a bare-metal machine. To improve clarity, please change the third and fourth sentences of the last paragraph on page 13 to the following: "A third disadvantage of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 is that, unlike WDS, you can't use it to deploy an operating system onto a bare-metal system without using bootable media. The target system requires the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 client software or is booted by using other bootable media."

Exercise 3 overview

The overview reads "... you use Disk 1 to add a mirror for volume C." During the actual exercise, you make a new volume on Disk 1 (Volume E), and then mirror that volume onto Disk 2. Volume C is not actually used for anything. This entire exercise has issues in this regard, sometimes being correct (Making Volume 2 Mirror Volume 1(E:)), and sometimes saying that you are making Volume 1 mirror Volume 0 (C:)). Have not checked printed version for the same issue, have confirmed it is in the Mobi version.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Some wording needs to be updated in Exercise 3. The wording changes pertain only to the description preceding the exercise and the commentary between steps 4 and 5. Change the line preceding step 1 to the following: "In this exercise, which you perform on Server2, you create a new volume on Disk 1 and then add a mirror on Disk 2." Change the first sentence after step 4 and before to the following: "A new volume is created on Disk 2, and then, after both Disk 1 and Disk 2 are converted to dynamic disks, the new volume on Disk 2 is also assigned the drive letter E."

Last paragraph

The details given for the Virtual Lab for exercise 2 "Configuring a Failover Cluster" no longer seems to be valid. If you go to the URL suggested and search for the ID 1032345932 it is not found. Searching via Google gives the link https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventId=1032345932 However, this link is invalid. I have found an alternative lab with the same title here: https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032347547&culture=en-us It uses a different ID so I would like to confim whether this is the correct lab for the purposes of this course. Cheers, Ian

Note from the Author or Editor:
At this time, I cannot connect either to event ID #1032345932 or #1032347547. However, I have found another virtual lab about Failover Clustering that is accessible, #1032380228. Please make the following changes. In the first sentence below Exercise 2 on page 141, replace "1032345932" with "1032380228". In the following sentence, replace "TechNet Virtual Lab: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Failover Clustering Lab" with "TechNet Virtual Lab: Creating a Highly Available Infrastructure".

At a minimum, this process includes installing appropriate server features and applications." in my opinion the last word " applications " should be removed because at page 160 , in the last paragraph we read : " ...any applications you want to deploy to users through RDS should be installed after you add the RDS role. "

Note from the Author or Editor:
