Here you’ll find all System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2016 related content to my session I presented at Ignite 2017 on the Gold Coast.
Here’s the recording of my session: https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Ignite/Australia-2017/INF335
There are two sections of videos, the first one has the “setup” videos, all the steps I took to get a guarded fabric / shielded VMs up and running plus the steps for using Windows Server 2016 SDN with VMM 2016.
The second section is my demo videos from the presentation with voice narration.
At the end I also have all the resource links from my deck: to sessions at Ignite 2017 Australia, recordings of sessions at Ignite US 2016, links to various parts of the VMM documentation, SDN troubleshooting links etc.
