Diary of IT Man - obtained a MCSE Windows Server - Cloud Platform and Infrastructure

Cheers that I obtained a MCSE-Cloud Platform and Infrastructure certification several weeks ago. I just needed to take one Microsoft exam # 70-753 to upgrade from MCSA to MCSE. Originally, I did not plan to have MCSE because it did not find it has any benefit to my career. However, because I had a a spare Microsoft exam coupon, so, I decided to take this Azure exam. I prepared the exam for two months, mainly studied from Microsoft resource and studied braindump question from passleaders.com. Although I could only find 20% of my exam questions from braindump, I still luckily passed the exam in one-take. Next, I will prepare my pmp project exam.

Good news that I got a new version of odoo ver 11. A lot of good stuff there.

For this version, focused most of our efforts on improving the API so it will run faster and be easier for developers to work with. This isn’t to say there’s nothing for the end user, though. it made small changes to many apps to make them more intuitive and more useful. Odoo V11 introduced global keyboard shortcuts and a global search feature to make navigating Odoo quicker and easier than ever.

Tips on using Microsoft Azure

Tips 1. How to find password of wordpress logon

  • The default user account of wordpress in Azure is ‘user’.
  • The application password is randomly generated during the first boot. This password can be viewed as follows:

    In the “Support + Troubleshooting” menu, select the “Boot diagnostics” option.

    Review the system log until you find the application password.

    IMPORTANT: This password is only shown the first time you start the image. Please save your password in a safe place. We also recommend changing it in your application to a different value.

    Tips 1. How to Setup Nested Virtualization in Azure

    Deploy Azure VM

    To setup Nested Virtualization inside an Azure Virtual Machine, you first need to create a new Virtual Machines using one of the new instance sizes like Ev3 or Dv3 and Windows Server 2016.I also recommend to install all the latest Windows Server patches to the system.

    Optional: Optimize Azure VM Storage

    This step is optional, but if you want to better performance and more storage for your Nested Virtual Machines to run on, this makes sense.

Procedure to migration Exchange Server Email to Office365

The main steps you perform for a cutover migration are shown in the following illustration.

  1. The administrator communicates upcoming changes to users and verifies domain ownership with the domain registrar.
  2. The administrator prepares the servers for a cutover migration and creates empty mail-enabled security groups in Office 365.
  3. The administrator connects Office 365 to the on-premises email system (this is called creating a migration endpoint).
  4. The administrator migrates the mailboxes and then verifies the migration.
  5. Grant Office 365 licences to your users.
  6. The administrator configures the domain to begin routing email directly to Office 365.
  7. The administrator verifies that routing has changed, and then deletes the cutover migration batch.
  8. The administrator completes post-migration tasks in Office 365 (assigns licenses to users and creates an Autodiscover Domain Name System (DNS) record), and optionally decommissions the on-premises Exchange servers.
  9. The administrator sends a welcome letter to users to tell them about Office 365 and to describe how to sign in to their new mailboxes.
