KTSI Open Day 2012


Today I finished my diploma thesis. The focus on my projects over the last semester was Microsoft Private Cloud and the topic or the task I got was “Microsoft Private Cloud: From VMware to Hyper-V”. Now I will present this project tomorrow at the KTSI open day 2012. So if you are interested in how you can migrate from VMware to Hyper-V you should not miss this event: www.ktsi.ch


First KTSI Project done


Now after the something over three months I finished my first project for the 5th KTSI semester. As a project I created a overview of the Microsoft Cloud for Small and Medium sized businesses. I wrote about the big partner and customer opportunity with Windows Intune and Office 365.

After I finished the review I may will publish this document on my blog.

DirectAccess for SMB and Lab environments – Design, Step by Step and Troubleshooting Guide

DirectAccess for SMB and Lab Environments This is a modified document which I wrote for a Microsoft Workshop at KTSI. It’s a Desgin, Step by Step and a Troubleshooting Guide for Microsoft DirectAccess. This is made for SMB or LAB environments not for Enterprise Deployments.

I hope this guide can help you deploy DirectAccess in your environment and you can enjoy DirectAccess like I do ;-)


Passed MCITP Certifications

In the last 2 months, I passed my first two MCITP (Microsoft Certified IT Professional) Certifications. The first was the new MCITP: Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization Administrator and the second was the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator. I am really happy it was hard work but I think it was worth it. If you want to get more information about certification, check out Microsoft Learn.

Convert Word Documents to PDF with Automator

I got a lot of Microsoft Word Documents form one of our professors at KTSI. But Evernote only supports text recognition inside PDFs. So I converted all Word Documents to PDF with the Mac OS X Automator.

How to convert Word Documents to PDF:

  1. Open Automator under Mac OS X
  2. Add a “Get Specified Finder Items” object
  3. Select the Word Documents
  4. Add another “Convert Format of Word Documents” object
  5. Set the Format to ” Portable Document Format (PDF)”
  6. Now click run and the Automator will convert all your Word Documents and you can find them in the same folder as the Word Documents
