BizTalk Server 2010 Administrator Training Kit

Most of the times, BizTalk Server developers eventually step into the role of BizTalk Server Administrators (yes, it's a niche skill and that's the right path to go) but to step up as BizTalk Server Administrator is a big responsibility...  Here is your chance to learn it from Microsoft using Virtual Labs for Administrators... very interesting


This training kit contains a complete set of materials that will enable you to learn the core administrator capabilities in BizTalk Server 2010. This kit includes lab manuals, PowerPoint presentations and videos, all designed to help you learn about BizTalk Server 2010. There is also an option below to download a Virtual Machine that is ready for you to use with the training kit.

Instructions

In order to use this evaluation package you will need to have Microsoft Hyper-V installed on a physical machine.

Hyper-V is available on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. This virtual machine requires Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2. Details on how to install Hyper-V can be found here. Details of how to setup the VHD are included in the documentation that accompanies the product.

In the Setup folder there is an application that will add all the VMs into Hyper-V. The app does this while maintaining only a single copy of the base images. To install, open a command promt with the "Run as Administrator" option and change directory to the setup folder. The import will fail if you do not run the command prompt with this option. Then run the command:

importVM.exe full path to base image

For example, if the root of the labs is c:\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 Training, then the command would be:

importVM.exe "C:\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 Training\VM\common\BizTalk2010Demo.vhd"

Enter the username “ADVENTUREWORKS\Administrator” and password “pass@word1” to login.
