Season's Greetings from the AskPFEPlat PFEs!
A solid Mailbag today with items from Paul Bergson, Rick Bergman, Matthew Walker, Mike Kline and Mike Hildebrand. Also an AskPFEPlat alum – Mark Morowczynski – has started making Permanent Waves over in Azure AD land (did you catch the Rush reference I snuck in there? J)
First up, Paul B. brought this one to our attention and thought our readers would find this a welcome addition to our in-box NIC teaming:
Update adds support for the "slow" timer in LACP in Windows Server 2012 R2
Next, Rick Bergman offered up a reminder about the "Taste of Premier" video series and called-out the most recent video where Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and GM of Microsoft's Cloud Platform Julia White discuss and demo cyber and operational security in the mobile-first, cloud-first world.
Future Post Teaser: Jessica Payne has a video out there, too, about our local admin password management tools and very soon, she will have a blog on our site to compliment the video:
