A little bit of everything without actually being much of anything

Tomorrow I’ll be heading down to San Diego for Burton Group Catalyst conference.  I’m looking forward to the chance at "attending" a conference, rather than "presenting/working" at one.  Especially after spending many hours in the booth at TechEd in Orlando a couple weeks ago.

So if you’re in San Dawg, let me know.  I’d love to say hi to old friends, and meet new ones.

Ch. 1 – RODC Deployment Guide now available on Technet

Posted by BPuhl on June 6, 2008

From GregoireG (Directory Service Program Manager):

After shipping the RODC compatibility pack for Win2K3 and XP a few weeks ago, we shipped today the 1st chapter of the RODC Guide, which is meant to be the authoritative piece of documentation for our customers to decide if, when and how to use RODCs.

You can find the guide on technet, under the AD DS tree. Here is a link to it (don’t hesitate to share it!): http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=120840

Some of you may have noticed that I said “1st chapter”; this is because the guide that we’re releasing today is generic to any usage scenario of RODC, and we’ll add in the coming months additional chapters that correspond to more specific scenarios where RODCs are going to be used; the proposed structure is:

Chapter 2: RODC in branch offices

Chapter 3: RODC in segmented networks (DMZ)

Chapter 4: RODC on internet

PowerShell script to automate deployment of Read-only Domain Controllers on Hyper-Visor

Posted by BPuhl on June 6, 2008

Nathan Muggli (Active Directory Program Manager) has posted a set of tools/powershell scripts for automating the deployment of RODC’s using Hyper-Visor.  Great examples of what you can do when you combine powershell, hyper-visor, and Active Directory Domain Services on Server 2008.
