AD Recovery – W2008 – Netbackup

So I have to admit I am a little behind in terms of W2k8 and AD.  It looks like the whole recovery mechanism has changed, it looks interesting and I will be giving the recovery a go over the weekend to see how it fits into the overall AD Recovery picture. Does this mean we don’t need third party products???

Something I need to progess is my .Net related AD skills. I have done a considerable amount of ASP.NET but none of it really related to Active Directory. Recently I have had a couple of requests to look at health checks around the directory and how they can be globally achieved.  Looking at the tools available none of them do everything you want and some of them cost a considerable amount of cash.  Perhaps writing something yourself is the only way to go ?

Anyone got any hints or tips on what they are doing?

TEC 2009

Posted by chrisbeams on May 15, 2009

Something I need to go to this year is the TEC 2009 three day forum

http://www.tec2009.com/

Getting to hear all the latest info from the gurus in the directory services area. A great list of speakers including a couple of MVPs. Just need to find the money 🙂

Cheers

Chris
