I’m Richard Hooper aka Pixel Robots. I started this blog in 2016 for a couple reasons. The first reason was basically just a place for me to store my step by step guides, troubleshooting guides and just plain ideas about being a sysadmin. The second reason was to share what I have learned and found out with other people like me. Hopefully, you can find something useful on the site.

“Create baseline for resources” likely refers to this monitoring article –

    Pixel Robots. · July 19, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    Thanks. I will get that updated.

Amit · July 20, 2018 at 9:24 am

Do you have a complete pdf study guide for new Azure 102 exam or any links?

    Pixel Robots. · July 20, 2018 at 9:42 am

    I do not have a PDF. Sorry. But if you use the links in this post, you should be able to learn what you need to hopefully pass the exam.

Great resource! Thanks for putting this together. Just a couple suggestions, under Managed Azure Active Directory, I believe two of the sections should read “Configure Azure AD Join” and “Configure Enterprise State Roaming” Adding configure will clarify what will be covered on the exam.

    Pixel Robots. · July 31, 2018 at 9:13 am

    Thanks for the input. I have added the changes.

Ashwin · August 2, 2018 at 5:21 pm

This is great, Rich…thank you very much!

    Pixel Robots. · August 2, 2018 at 5:31 pm

    Thanks for the nice words.

Dave L · August 3, 2018 at 1:47 pm

For “Identify changes to the network” I think you should review
Network Watcher

Luis Sánchez · August 8, 2018 at 9:34 pm

I think that Setup domain account and credentials refers to the example case “Contoso migration series” in the section Deploy an Azure Infrastructure:

Anthony · October 3, 2018 at 4:05 pm

Really useful post. Thank-you very much. Great work!

HJ · October 23, 2018 at 1:09 pm

How to identify ports open, the link isnt working or the content isnt right. Can you please double check

RB · October 31, 2018 at 4:06 pm

This will be very helpful. Thanks a lot for putting time and effort to come up with a study service like this.
I have one suggestion, can you please place a “Revision Date” at the top of top of the page? With many comments about topics to be updated, it helps for visitors to know if the site is updated. Thanks again.

    Pixel Robots. · October 31, 2018 at 10:57 pm

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will add this asap.

Dave Richardson · December 3, 2018 at 6:56 am
