When running ForeFront Protection for Exchange, make sure you disable ForeFront before installing the rollup and re-enable it afterwards, otherwise the Information Store and Transport services may not start. You can disable ForeFront using fscutility /disable and enable it using the fscutility /enable command.

Note that update rollups are cumulative, i.e. they contain fixes released in earlier update rollups for the same product level (RTM, SPx). This means you don’t need to install previous update rollups during a fresh installation but can start with the latest rollup available right away.

Free Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer

Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer  is a free tool to optimize the virtual desktop.

Blindly deploying entirely the same Windows desktop image that was used for the physical desktops is not the smartest thing to do. Running Windows in a VDI environment requires a decent amount of optimizing. This optimizing is nothing new. Quest has been optimizing SBC environments for over ten years now and many of things that we learned there (the hard way) apply equally to VDI environments.

Quest created a piece of software that contains our entire ‘optimizing knowledge’ called the Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer and it is Free!

Although optimized for Quest vWorkspace environments, the Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer will work just as well in Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View environments. You can download the Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer HERE. Read HERE important information on how to use the Quest vWorkspace Desktop Optimizer.
