Problem booting Windows 8 from VHD file

If you have used the VHD method to install Windows 8 and placed this VHD file on your host OS, you might experience getting the following error when booting at some point:

VHD_BOOT_HOST_VOLUME_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE

win8error

 

Reason/Resolution

The reason you get this, is because you are able to install Windows 8 into a dynamic VHD file (Thin Provioning), but Windows 8 still looks at how much space there are left on the host volume where you have placed the VHD file. So if you have made a 20 GB dynamic VHD file and only using 10 GB, but the host volume only have 8 GB left, then you will get this error.
So you must always make sure that you have as much space available on your host volume as the VHD file can grow.

How to change the ADFS 2.0 URL in a deployment used with Office 365

I just wanted to share an good article I followed yesterday when I needed to change the URL and therefor also the certificate in a Office 365 ADFS setup:

http://www.proexchange.be/blogs/office365/archive/2011/11/06/how-to-change-the-adfs-2-0-url-in-a-deployment-used-with-office-365.aspx

Remember always to use a public certificate in production environment and this is also required if you need SSO for you Office desktop deployment. You also required to use ADFS Proxy or publish ADFS though TMG if you need to use SSO.

I found this great video that explains how to publish ADFS though TMG:

!!!Remember as it also shows in the video, when creating the web listener and you are using a star(*) certificate like *.yourdomain.dk, that you type *.yourdomain.dk in the Internal site name.
