Here are the new Directory Services-related KB articles for the week. Also, although it isn't entirely new, I was reminded that we have the Windows Server 2008 command reference available now. So here are links to both the 2008 and 2003 versions. They are good as a quick reference when you need a command's syntax but also interesting to look at to be aware of tools you might not use on a daily basis. AD admins will want to familiarize themselves with Wevtutil and Icacls, both are new to Vista/2008.
