  • A great TechEd so far …

    … will get even better. Tomorrow morning Sam Devasahayam and I will present the session “What’s new in Active Directory in Windows Server 2012”. It’s loaded from information of the Active Directory Product Group, and I’ll bring in some real-world scenarios. I’m looking forward to the session. Loads of information and loads of reference slides to take away after the session. After the success from TechEd US we decided that we are again taking questions using twitter. If you come to the session, and
  • My demo equipment at TechEd

    Hi there, I spoke to multiple people being totally excited about my demo equipment at TechEd , and was asked couple times if I can blog this. So here we go. The hardware I used is a Lenovo Tablet X220T – thanks Lenovo! It’s a great hardware: I love to work with tablet pc’s, and I’ve worked with it for years, however a hardware I had before died on me (was my personal one, but I used it as main device reducing my work laptop for demo and test). I always preferred Lenovos Keyboards and their solid

  • TechEd 2012 US

    Hi there, I’m currently at TechEd 2012 in Orlando, and it’s time to get back blogging again. As you’ve propably seen, the Release Candidate for Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Release Preview have been released. No wonder that there is a lot of information at TechEd about the new Windows Operating Systems. I’ve been working with both versions for a while now and love the products. Computacenter Germany is in the Windows Server Rapid Deployment Program and we currently deploy WS2012 in production
  • R2: Forest and Domain Mode can be reverted

    I was asked many times “what may break if I update the forest or domain mode?”. Usually … nothing! Actually I’ve never heard of anything breaking when you increased the forest or domain mode. However, in Windows Server 2008 or lower versions of domain controllers there was no possibility to roll back the forest or domain mode. … No way! … No way? … OK – you were able to do a forest recovery (recovering at least one DC of each domain in the forest and rebuild the forest), however I doubt that this
  • First Developer Preview of Windows “8” released

  • How to get more Infrastructure Masters in your domain?

    Usually we have one Infrastructure Master in the domain who’s responsible to maintain references to objects in other domains – such as users which are members of a group in a different domain – to make sure if the target-object (user) is being renamed, moved or otherwise his distinguishedname has changed it can still be found. He is doing this by creating phantoms (small objects which contain only distinguishedname, SID and GUID). Actually, making it more complicated but accurate – those group memberships
