I sometimes get very positively surprised by Microsoft. In the work of cleaning and structuring an Active Directory environment we wanted to produce a graphical overview of our current forest. It did not take long before I found Active Directory Topology Diagrammer, which is an absolute perfect tool for this purpose. And it is free!Active Directory Topology Diagrammer gets the entire AD structure according to the parameters you supply and draws the structure in a Visio document. It does however require Visio 2003 or later installed to be able to do this export.
I cannot with words describe the hype around the cloud today, and of course I had to join the croud. I have transferred all my applications, files and services to the cloud. I thought I would share some of the experiences and difficulties I have hit during my jourey. These are the steps I have performed in order to complete my move to the cloud: Most of my files are safely stored with Dropbox . E-mail accounts for stodell.se were moved from service provider to Google Apps . The Cornball was moved from service provider to Windows Azure och SQL Azure . This blog was moved from Wordpress at a service provider to Google's Blogger . Even though Loopia has been a great service provider during many years I have now been able to cancel all my services except the domain hosting with them. The replacement being free services and the Azure capacity that is included in the MSDN subscription.
