Server 2016: Networking Your Virtual Machine (Text)

We're going to get started with how the VM interacts with the host in various forms.

Today's Glossary
Guarded Fabric protect a VM from a compromised host.
Nesting is a Hyper-V inside of a Hyper-V Virtual Machine
TPM (Trusted Platform Module) Chip stores authentication artifacts (See Secure Boot and UEFI)

Secure Boot stops authorized code from running (See UEFI)

UEFI (Finally) - Unified Extensible Firmware (S2016 uses 2.3.1 Errata C) - digitally signed and validated bootloader



bootmgfw.efi




Virtual :  Net Adaptor
               Switch

External VS (Virtual Switch)
* Connects to a wired  physical network through a physical adaptor.

Internal
VM (Virtual Machine) Network only with host that has a virtual switch. It's the communication path between the host and VM (What I use on VMware.

Private 
Connected to network, only used by virtual machines using host with a virtual switch.
Host =/= Virtual Machine networking.

Basics of Securing Your Hyper-V
Limit host use.
Update soft/hardware
Be mindful of remote management
Check permissions.

Server Consolidation is an inventory of Linux and Windows Servers

Stateless: After initial provisioning, no unique information is written to the HD, but can be to a Database.

Stateful writes to both an HD and outside storage.

When planning a server setup, consider the Host the Virtual Server will reside on.

DEPLOYMENT, IMAGE SERVICING, MANAGEMENT.

Write to offline image of a Wim or VHD File
 ---> CMD
1. /get-imageinfo
2. mount image (dism mount-wim /wimfile:<file> index:<index> /mountdir:<mountdir>
3. List all features
4. Enable Features

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
