Study Resources for 70-415 and 70-416

If you are planning (as myself) to go for the MSCE Desktop Infrastructure there is some core technologies that you need to be pretty familiar with.

* WDS 2012
* Configuration Manager 2012
* MDT 2012
* USMT 2012
* RDS + RemoteFX 2012
* WSUS 2012
* MAP 8
* App-V 5

and how these solutions integrate with each other.
The exam is pretty much based around how to deliver a desktop or an application to the end-user with the technologies I mentioned above.
So here you will find some links to download and some resources I self-found useful

MDT 2012

MAP (Is pretty much a agentless monitoring solution to see the usage of specific applications and see if your infrastructure is ready for migrate to the cloud or new versions of Windows)

Configuration Manager 2012 (Technet site) (I also have numerous posts around the subject) (Niall Brady also has a lot of guides you can find here) (Management of Boot Images) (Deployment PXE) (SCUP 2011) (Baseline with VMM 2012)

WDS 2012 (What new in 2012)


WSUS (Different deployment types.

RDS 2012 (User Profile disks) (RemoteFX) (More RemoteFX) (Customizing RDweb) (VDI in Windows Server 2012)

Bitlocker Windows 8 (What’s new)

Credential Roaming (Primary User in Windows 20212)
