New Directory Services KB Articles/Blog Posts 6/7-6/13

I had started posting some of the interesting Directory Services-related posts from other blogs, but I figure it makes more sense to aggregate them in this weekly new KB articles posting. That way I won’t be muddying up people’s RSS feeds with reposts, since some of you subscribe to many of the blogs that I monitor. I will also include the previous week’s postings to AskDS so you can use this one post as a quick snapshot of what is going on with Directory Services.

If you have any thoughts on how we can better keep you informed about new content, drop us some feedback in the comments section.
