TechNet Virtual labs are simple—no complex setup or installation is required. You need to sign up (did I mention it's free?) with your passport account, and after you do that you will gain access to the online labs. The labs themselves are based on pre-configured virtual machines, so there are no hardware or software pre-requisites, and no installation to perform.
The Office Communications Server 2007 topics of the newest Virtual labs are:
- Deploying and configuring
- Configuring and using conferencing
- Using management and troubleshooting tools
- Compliance and archiving
There is also a new Exchange Server 2007 Virtual lab on configuring the Unified Messaging Server. In relation to the Exchange virtual labs you should also look at my "TechNet Exchange Virtual Labs" article.
