Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
We’ve been at this for over a year (since August 2007), with more than 100 posts (127 to be exact), so maybe we can indulge in a little metablogging to look back on what we’ve done.
First let’s look at the posts that sparked the most conversation – because that is what blogging is all about right? If we wanted to simply publish information, we could just as easily create KB or Technet articles. Well, ok, there are decidedly fewer hoops to jump through to post a blog, but by blogging we also get to hear from you. Being in tech support, we hear from you quite a bit already. But I’m guessing many of you take pride in how infrequently you call us, so the blog opens up conversations with people we may never hear from otherwise.
The big winner here was Ned’s Top 10 Common Causes of Slow Replication with DFSR. It has five times the number of comments as the next highest post. It basically became a support forum for DFSR issues, and Ned was nice enough to oblige. To a lesser degree that is what happened with the other most-commented posts.

Not surprisingly, the same post topped the list for page views. But there are several that show up here with high page views that didn’t generate much conversation at all.

Our goal with this blog is to get information in the hands of customers so they can more effectively use our products, and hopefully save some of you from having to call us for support. If you have any thoughts about topics you would like to see more (or less) about, please leave us a comment.
