I’m glad to have met everyone on Thursday night. I really enjoy our first class.
Here are the slides from last night: Operating-Systems-Week1
I have reviewed the video and only saw two pop-ups of the class recording. I think I answered all the questions. If I missed anything please let me know via e-mail or posts to the site. I have also reviewed the WebEx recordings, but it did not record any of the chat sessions.
Please review the the items from slide 12 “In The News” and post thoughts from the overview we have talked about on Thursday. Take one of the three items from the news and think about how you would use one item we talked about to secure a target OS. If you don’t feel comfortable with the OS being reviewed in the three articles I posted you may select one of your own from the news article.
Also review the video link on how to install Windows 7. (Note: that Chrome works best when watching linked videos, Safari does not work)
The below video show you how to install Windows 7 on VMWare Fusion (On Box Link: Install Windows 7)
The below video shows you how to install the main set of patches for Windows 7 (On Box Link: Install Windows 7 Patches Main)
The below video shows you how to install ‘Cygwin’ to watch the WindowsUpdate.log (On Box Link: Install Cygwin)
Download this zip file and Place files into a folder structure Windows_LinkedPS_Scripts and Share the folder to the Guest OS via VMWare to have it work with the below video: PS_WU_Setup
The below video shows you how to setup PowerShell to watch the WindowsUpdate.log (On Box Link: Set-Up PS to Watch WU)
Download: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1, VMWare Fusion or Workstation. Make notes of the license keys. Please use the links from the class syllabus on how to install VMWare Fusion or Workstation. If you have any issues we will work on them in our next class.
