This post just serves as quick notes for dissemination amongst my colleagues. We recently allowed the Windows 10 1809 update via WSUS – needless to say, we were a bit hesitant to release round two of this update. So, we waited until after the phased rollout began on January 16. Anyway, per the norm, I went to download RSAT and realized that there wasn’t a download available for 1809.
Like most sysadmins that manage a lot of computers, I have a need for startup scripts. Also, I deploy those startup scripts to the computer via GPO. However, I prefer to download those scripts to the machine and run them locally. This allows them to run even if the computer isn’t currently connected to the network, like a laptop that’s off-site.
I wanted a quick way to get a list of user sessions on our VDI servers. My exact goal was to get a list of users that were a day away from being forced off the system and sending them an email.
I was wanting to setup my server with bonded network interface cards (NICs). Since it took me a while to get the bond working, I thought I do some notes to self here; added benefit of sharing with you all.
I’ve been a long time fan of Google Authenticator because Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a must in today’s easily compromised society. Unfortunately, Google Authenticator has been a struggle for many people, and I’m glad that I recently discovered Authy.
Bitcoin (BTC) is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.
