Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
Ned here. The Remote Server Administration Toolkit update to support Windows 7 Service Pack 1 has released. Come and get it:
- Ned “all complaints go here” Pyle
When I saw this title pop up in Google Reader...I think I just about wet myself with excitement. Thanks, Ned and team!
No credit here, I am just the bearer of good tidings. Have fun... eh... admin'ing stuff.
Ned, your directness in saying (February, I think) that this was not yet available, that you *already* knew it was really important, and that complaining wouldn't get it done any sooner, were appreciated for being honest. At least by me. I'm sure that realism and candor don't always endear you to your superiors. At least they don't endear me to mine ;-)
Thanks DJ. Keep fighting the good fight!
Is support for Exchange 2003 "in the wind"?
XP Mode works, but it sure ain't fast.
Sorry, I don't know. :-/
You can try asking here: blogs.technet.com/.../exchange
Does it bring anything new or are they the same but compatible with SP1 ?
I would hope they would fix some of those little quirks (double clicking an object in the aduc gets you a blank pane instead of opening the properties, adac doesn't save your columns, etc.) but I didn't get to check Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 to see if they made any changes.
There bug fixes provided in SP1 for client/server will also be updated when you install RSAT (see blogs.technet.com/.../sp1-and-directory-services-what-s-new.aspx - for example, KB2028962 is a bug fix for AD Users and Computers). Plus there are feature updates, like the newer flavor of Hyper-V Management Console that supports setting things like Dynamic Memory.
As far as each particular bug, you'll need to see for yourself or tell us exactly how to reproduce it. I won't know them all off the top of my head... :)
