Were you seeing issues with svchost spiking the cpu on SBS 2008 servers?





At an Exchange powershell command window (open up the Exchange shell with a runas admin) type in Disable-antispamupdates and say Yes to disable antispam updates for now.

Then go into services, stop Windows Update service and restart it. You'll see the svchost spike problem go away.

When the issue resolves, I'll tell you to flip them back on. If you temp disable them now, you won't spike the cpu on the box.

The issue has been resolved. If you disabled antispam updates, turn them back on.

On the train heading  back from San Diego to home where we celebrated the season with a bit of geekdom and holiday cheer.  As you can see we took a cue from the date on the calendar and decorated the last session (Swing migration) for the holiday season.

We even powered up usb Christmas trees from the HP thin client/zero clients we were using in the MultiPoint demos.

The meeting location was very inspiring.  http://herahub.com/  It's a collaborative work space that allows women to rent a work space outside the home.  When they arrive, they put their business card on a board indicating they are available for meetings.  There are shared workspaces, private conference rooms, and kitchen resources to allow for the Woman powered microbusiness to grow.

On the walls were inspirational sayings that fit in with the small business empowerment of the venue and topics given.

There will be a few more tour stops in 2012.  Sign up on www.smbmvptour.com to be alerted to when these occur.



Plug ins packed.  Wifi packed.  Laptop packed.  Special things for the SMBmvptour in San Diego packed.  And I'm about ready to get on a train tomorrow for San Diego.  (and they just added free wifi to all Amtrak Californians).


And you can still sign up!
