    Does anyone know if there is other revision methods for this exam?

    Seems like this is a ploy to get VmWare experts to learn and grow in their understanding of Hyper-V/Microsoft virtualization offerings? Nice post though, nothing wrong with improving a skillset imo.
    I say this because....from the Virtualization 2 website at the bottom:
    Migrate VMware VMs to Hyper-V

    With the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC), you can convert individual VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks to Hyper-V-based virtual machines and virtual hard disk

    Good find. I was wondering what the actual exam was. Not sure how it's all going to shake out.

    I registered as well, thanks for the link!

    I use 2012 Hyper-V every day so hopefully the exam will be straightforward :)
  • topcat007topcat007 Posts: 23Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    Thanks for this!

    Does anyone know if the two days will be enough to pass the exams after? I'm currently studying 70-411 so wouldn't have the time to diverse on another epic but can spare a few days if I can watch the videos when convenient? Or does it have to be watched live?
  • topcat007topcat007 Posts: 23Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    What Facebook page did you find this out from please? I would like to keep up to date with these offers
  • googolgoogol Posts: 107Member
    I too saw this earlier today and signed up. Typically with these live events, its recorded and shown later. Did it before, looking forward to it. Might have to work early that morning though. doh.

    Sounds interesting thanks for the link!

    Wish i could take the opportunity though, just got a lot on my plate at the moment. icon_sad.gif

    Looks interesting. Wonder if I'll ever be able to successfully fill out the registration form without it telling me fields are empty or 'The service is unavailable'. I remember this happening the last time I tried to sign up for something on this site.... oh well

    I got my confirmation email, however it does not mention the free exam voucher so I can not book the exam yet. I would like to book the exam as soon as possible.

    Has anyone else had this issue?
  • lsud00dlsud00d Posts: 1,571Member
    Ditto...received the email confirmation but no mention of the free exam voucher.
  • chanakyajupudichanakyajupudi Posts: 712Member
    They give this information after the session. Thats how it was done a few years ago though.

  • seanpcroweseanpcrowe Posts: 14Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    So you can NOT book the exam until AFTER the session?

    Does all the session involve watching the live stream?
  • chanakyajupudichanakyajupudi Posts: 712Member
    You will need to book only once they give the voucher information. I assume the intention behind giving the voucher is to make sure you attend the live session.

    This will be in the middle of the night for me...

    Have we to watch a live stream for a couple of hours, then study ourselves?
  • EspiOneEspiOne Posts: 62Member ■■□□□□□□□□
    With all the other stuff I have going on, Windows 8, Windows Server Security, I will be streaming this at work and register for the exam a month before it expires, June 30th, 2014. I just like to know where I can get more study material. I took last year's Jump Start for the 70-659, cost me $100 and failed, there was no study material. I read Hyper V Server 2008 R2, but that was not enough. Any ideas for study material for this exam? (70-409)
  • EspiOneEspiOne Posts: 62Member ■■□□□□□□□□
    I found a couple of books on Amazon:
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Installation and Configuration Guide
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V: Deploying Hyper-V Enterprise Server Virtualization Platform

    If they can be found at a lower price, that would be great.
  • RomBUSRomBUS Posts: 699Member ■■■■□□□□□□
    I signed up as well. I am not quite on the 2012 track yet but who could pass up a free exam?!
  • dhendersondhenderson Posts: 27Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    how do you sign up? the register today butttons dont work???
  • tprice5tprice5 Posts: 770Member
    I hit the Register button and it took awhile for it to give me feedback that it was working. I'd say hit the button and just leave the page up and check back in 5 mins later.

    Do you have to attend live session to this to get voucher or will watching the recordings still make you eligible?
  • tprice5tprice5 Posts: 770Member
    They haven't been very clear about that. We will just have to see.
