Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
Ned here. The Remote File System developer team wanted us to let you know about the release of FSMT 1.1. Here's their 'press release'. :-)
Microsoft is glad to announce the release of Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit 1.1. With this version you will be able to migrate and consolidate shared folders from servers running Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 2000 family of servers, Windows 2003 family of servers, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Storage Server 2008 to a server running Windows Server 2003, Windows Storage Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Storage Server 2008.
This new version comes with support added to Windows Server 2003 as well as Windows Server 2008, both on x86 and x64 systems, and its available in 5 languages (English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish).
FSMT 1.1 can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center site.

Ok, thanks. Now how about a blog article on new AD features coming in Windows 7? :) I want to know more about the AD improvements both on the server and client side. What new GPOs are there? Have Group Policy Preferences been refined more? Tell me more about this AD recycle bin and *who* can recover from it. Is FRS gone from SYSVOL replication or do we still have to do a FRS --> DFS-R migration?
More more more! :)
Definitely stuff in the works. We're just trying to figure out what they are telling everyone at PDC versus what was held back as a suprise. More to come, I promise you.
