iShadow Desktop Updated (1.6.0.0)

by jason In reply to Benway Net

I'll have to check this out when I get back.
An update to iShadow Desktop technology preview - 1.6.0.0 is available.

This universal ICA-RDP client (some features are yet to be enabled) has multi-window and multi-monitor support. Was tested with 40+ concurrent sessions and is a good candidate for benchmarking TS and Citrix deployments (has to be wired for benchmarking). I Like it. See more news on iShadow Desktop here.

Download iShadow Desktop 1.6.0.0 here.

Has adprep been run?

by jason In reply to Benway Net

I had an interesting question asked of me today, and I had to spend some time looking into it, so I thought I'd share the result of that with you.
As you know, adprep is used for preparing Active Directory to include Windows Server 2003 domain controllers. It comes in two flavors:

adprep /forestprep
Which is, of course, run once per forest, and

adprep /domainprep
Which is, of course, run once per domain.
Forestprep
The forestprep process creates a new container named:

CN=Operations,CN=ForestUpdates,CN=Configuration,DC=<VAR>ForestRootDomain</VAR>
Each operation executed by adprep/forestprep causes a new GUID-named container object to be created in the above container.
If you are upgrading from any version of Windows 2000 Server to Windows Server 2003, and adprep/forestprep has completed successfully, then the CN=Operations container will have 36 of the GUID-name objects contained within it. If you are upgrading from a beta or release-candidate version of Windows Server 2003 to the released version, you may have as many as 43 of these objects.
If there are fewer than 36 objects, then adprep/forestprep failed somewhere along the process. You can compare the list of operations and GUIDs in the Microsoft KB article 309628.
Domainprep
Similar to forestprep, the domainprep operation also creates a new container:

CN=Operations,CN=DomainUpdates,CN=System,DC=<VAR>DomainName</VAR>
but unlike forestprep, domainprep also creates a second container:

CN=Windows2003Update,CN=DomainUpdates,CN=System,DC=<VAR>DomainName</VAR>
which contains a single attribute of interest CN=Revision.
The CN=Operations container will contain 50 updates (up to 55 if you are upgrading from beta-releases).
If all 50 of the operations are completed successfully, then the CN=Windows2003Update container will have its Revision attribute set to 8 (eight).
If the CN=Revision attribute is not eight, then each GUID in the CN=Operations,CN=DomainUpdates container may be examined to determine where adprep/domainprep failed. The list of these is also given in Microsoft KB article 309628.
Fun Fact
All of the non-schema updates that happen as a result of running adprep are executed on the domain controller which holds the infrastructure master FSMO role.

Microsoft gets into the VoIP game

by jason In reply to Benway Net

Marketwatch: Microsoft buys VoPI provider Teleo.
Ahh, this is the tool I saw at Demo and I said it's a potential Skype killer.
It hasn't turned out to be that yet, but this sure is interesting news. I didn't know about it, by the way. I have some inquiries into our mergers and acquisitions department to see if they can tell me more.

Desktop Search Engines Can Affect Exchange Server Performance

by jason In reply to Benway Net

I was glad to see that we have a KB article stating this.? (Very well written, Nino...)? It is a very lo-o-o-ng title "Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003 performance may be affected when desktop search engine software is running on Outlook or other MAPI client computers"The article does a good job of explaining under what circumstances you will see the issue.? This is yet another good reason to run Outlook in cached mode in your organization.? Also included is a link to the ExMon tool to identify who?are the culprits.?
I use the MSN search tool?exclusively now and love it.? But I also know that I am running in cached mode, so I know that I am not causing any issues with my Exchange servers.? Excellent.
