    Ah…. my past comes back to haunt me…

    Paul and I worked together for a Gold Partner in the UK and both worked on the project for a certain large burger company, establishing their worldwide SINGLE LABEL DNS forest root and creating their Exchange 2000 Active/Active cluster… my, if only we had known then what we know now….

    BTW, the AD design wasn’t written by us… I was just the guy pushing the buttons…

    No-one wants to know how many computers I have broken over the years… least of all my previous customers… 🙂

    Was that the idea of using X.400 to route between orgs rather than an SMTP sub domain? Man, those glory days… X.400… a dark art…

    As somebody that is starting the journey towards master certification i found this extremely interesting,  Although the line “It’s also worth remembering to check the basics, networking, DNS, AD – it’s amazing just how much chaos Greg can cause without actually doing much!” that might surprise a few people  but having worked with Greg for a number of years I can tell you chaos followed him around :O) !

    I do remember a certain brain wave over distribution lists you had while eating burger and chips…!! Who said fast food kills brain cells

    it was the idea of routing using x.400, glory days indeed.

    I had to search through some old documentation to be sure but i found it alongside the "luck of the draw" document…

    That’s how we decided how we broke major infrastructure projects up … pulling numbers out of hats…..!! I always got DHCP!!!

    Anyway back on track blood sweat tears here we come. Anybody else got any survival  tips?
