Welcome to our unofficial blog for Microsoft Premier Field Engineers (PFEs) supporting the Microsoft Platform (server and client OS plus related components). We are a group of 11 PFEs who are dedicated to supporting Microsoft Premier support customers. We are directly interacting with our customers daily – helping them to understand, use, administer and troubleshoot Microsoft technologies. Collectively, our expertise spans technologies like Active Directory, Failover Clustering, Hyper-V, DNS, DHCP, ADFS, Deployment, Certificate Services, Performance and Networking. We have the benefit of seeing these technologies every day, in real-world scenarios, across hundreds of customers. We want to share our knowledge, experiences, tools, tips and tricks with our readers – so they can benefit from our expertise and apply this knowledge to their own environments and circumstances. We also hope to respond to select questions that you submit directly to us.
We’re looking forward to the start of something good.
Looking forward to the blog, you all have a lot to live up to since you took the "ask..." title...watch out Ned :)
Interesting first post might be the transition from the outside world to a platform PFE. I've heard the first 6-12 months can feel like drinking out of a fire hose. I guess it also depends a lot on the team around you.
So you are looking for a, what it's like to be starting as a PFE Post?
Mark, yes that could be a good second post.
I'd also like to hear what the guys that specialize in AD think of the name "ADFS". I personally hate the name because everyone assumes AD and ADFS skills are the exact same and that anyone that knows AD is also an ADFS expert. I wish it would have been called just "FS"
Good job guys! Don't forget to check out other blogs by PFEs here:
