Today is Sunday (still) so new download info arrives

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sunday evening is a good time (after busy day and week) to scan through feeds and other things in my news inbox. I found two things which I want to share with you.

First is a new version of Microsoft Product Support Reports. If you’ve worked with PSS there is good chance that you are familiar with those tools. If not – well MPS is just a bunch of scripts which gathers diagnostic information on a given machine. What is nice about it, is that they can gather this information in a context of given service. What is important for AD troubleshooting might not be so important for SQL. Worth to check and keep in toolbox.

Second link is long awaited “Active Directory Domain Services in the Perimeter Network (Windows Server 2008)”, which simply can be described as document which explains how to deploy RODC in perimeter network. It enhances concepts from RODC deployment guide published some time ago with perimeter network deployments. Have a fun.
