Please join the Home and Small Business Server team for a special SMB Community event.  Nick King and Adrian Maziak from the Home and Small Business Server team will be in Australia to participate in several user group meetings.  Nick and Adrian will be discussing Windows Home Server Code Name "Vail", SBS2008 + Windows 7 and other SMB focused topics.

In addition, the King of Swing, Jeff Middleton will explain the opportunity to provide predictable and profitable SBS 2008 migration deployments. You will come away with an understanding of infrastructure transition with SBS 2008, or any NT/200x historical platform to adopt Windows 2003/2008 (R2) platforms, as well as any combination of Exchange 2000, 2003, 2007 or 2010. Jeff embraces methodology designed for you to prepared a completed server in advance, maintain the domain, and yet your original domain and server is not modified, the production is not down for construction, and the IT Pro can take your weekends off!
