On ADAM user authentication….

I just noticed that Doug Lawty has a blog, and that he recently posted on ADAM as well. I think Doug is spot on with some of his conclusions, I also feel the need to clarify the statements made along the way a bit. 🙂   > Kerberos (Remember, ldap binds send your password in the clear.)  …

Who is that ADAM guy, and why should I let him in?

So, it’s pretty well understood what Active Directory (AD) is. Since we shipped Windows 2000 several years ago, we’ve been putting information out there on what AD is, how you use it, how it benefits you, and why you should use it for as much integration as you can. I think AD sells itself to…

I love when I find a helpful tool on download.microsoft.com….

I don’t know what everyone else around here is in to, but I’ve been waiting several weeks for this one. It took some looking around, but I finally found a copy to call my own….

Everyone starts somewhere…..

Welcome to my blog! It’s just getting rolling, so sorry if things are a bit slow to start. I’m definitely a neophyte in the land of bloggers.   As you can probably tell, my name is Eric, and I’m on the Platforms Critical Problem Resolution (CPR) team. Most of my work these days is in…
