New KB Articles March 22-April 4

Here are the new KB articles related to Directory Services published between 3/22-4/4. Obviously the big news has been the release of the 2008 remote administration tools (RSAT) and Hyper-V RC0. We use Virtual Server heavily for testing and reproducing customer issues, so I was interested to try out Hyper-V. It is a big help being able to use x64 guests, and overall the performance definitely seems improved from Virtual Server. Lots of nice little things also, like the ability to change the boot order of the guest without having to boot into the guest’s BIOS.
