  • Enumerating IP Addresses on Network Adapters using PowerShell

    Regardless of whether a server is for Exchange, for SQL, or for any other use; a key component of the server's configuration is the set of IP addresses assigned to it. Many organizations apply all addresses (even server addresses) using DHCP. For servers, this is often based on reservations of the...

  • More on Single Level Domains and Exchange 2007

    In this article I reported on the fact (then) that single level domains were not supported in Exchange Server 2007 sp1. Microsoft, as of today (February 15, 2008) has changed their position on single-level domains and Exchange Server 2007. This is the Microsoft Exchange Team blog post on the topic. It's...

  • Even More on Exchange Server 2007 Licensing...the UC Wave?

  • Information Store Antivirus for Exchange

    In my recent EMO article, I referred to the fact that there are two different kinds of anti-virus that may execute on an Exchange Server: file-level scanning and information store scanning. In this article, I write more about information store scanning. While written specifically with Exchange Server...
