Active Directory User Creation Tool 1.2

Posted by Michael Schultz on Feb 16, 2018 8:24:38 AM

It is not every day I need to add users in bulk to Active Directory, but when I do, I usually need to write a script that can be quiet time-consuming. It just so happened that I came across a tool to make this process a little easier today. Its name is ADUC Tool, and it allows you to import users from a CSV file or build them based on pre-configured settings. The tool is based in PowerShell, but it has a GUI. While this is a no-frills option, it is free and is very customizable for any organization.

Reblog: Project Honolulu

Posted by Michael Schultz on Dec 1, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Managing windows servers might be getting an upgrade in the future as Microsofts “Project Honolulu” is being developed to add a web UI for it. This has the potential to be a game changer for customers that were on the verge of using HyperV Core but didn’t want to lose the manageability of the full GUI. The goal of this platform is to pick up where the server manager lacked. In offering a Web-based solution it will be easier to use, and they are also releasing APIs for third-party developers to make use of. I would look forward to the actual release of this feature in late 2018, but in the mean time give the preview a try. If you have questions or have interest in Microsoft software, contact Cyber Advisors

Joe's Link: Missing out on Technology revolution could seriously change your life

Posted by Joe Moline on Nov 3, 2017 8:33:44 AM

I admit I am not someone who was not always on the cutting edge of technology.  It’s not that I don’t love technology and appreciate the many improvements it has made to my quality of life.  It’s just that I am not an early adapter type. I need to fully understand how and why each technology product is going to improve my life before I invest any of my own time or money.
