Inside SIMS and its development - an interview with the Team

by TheScarfedOne on 28th April 2013 at 08:13 PM
So, back at the end of January, I got the opportunity to sit down with a number of the key people behind SIMS, namely Jon Wood, Graham Cooper, Ben Jones and Phil Neal.

Above - Phil Neal (MD); Graham Cooper (Head of Product Strategy)

HyperV Clusters

by TheScarfedOne on 17th February 2013 at 09:01 PM
Some of you may have read from my previous Microsoft School Blog posts that I run a HyperV Clustered network. This consists of 3 HyperV Hosts, running Server 2008 R2 (considering when to upgrade to 2012)... with the VHD server data files located on a SAN.

This allows me to use the Failover Clustering feature to manage the resilience of the network.

This week; I came across an odd problem.

I was getting ready to do some maintenance across the system -

In this post, Im going to pick up on SIMS Learning

Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 2

by TheScarfedOne on 27th January 2013 at 06:07 PM
This post is a continuation of my battle to compelte a cohesive intranet; and some more ramblings about Sharepoint. Its turned into a monster of a project this one. The external single sign on (SSO) was a breeze - thanks to Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) - but this presented an issue - internal or external, you would be faced with a logon screen. Not ideal - internally we wanted a double SSO which would use your Active Directory logon session to SSO with the TMG HTTP session.

Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 1

by TheScarfedOne on 20th January 2013 at 10:02 PM
Its been a long time since I last wrote about Sharepoint - the platform for our Intranet; but now with the rest of the ongoing projects nearing completion - I've been able to return to this monster of a project.

So, lets go back to the start and show what the end goal was.

1. Intranet Portal - containing Departmental, Staff and Student Areas. Department areas would have staff and student storage as well as news, events, discussions, blogs and all
