Not a lot of lengthy explanation required

Im starting to realize that some of these questions are extraordinarily hard for experienced admins and then server newcomers such as myself simply think these are common practice I suppose. However as Ive noted some of this information isnt exactly relevant
or topical for day to day use. This such as obscure lines of code from PS when there is a really simple gui method or something as simple as a click through on creating a DNS record might be better suited to someone at my level of understanding. With no base
line understanding of server technology these obscure seemingly overly complicated methods of learning or doing things might leave a person in a strange position in the work force. Like I can do all this weird obscure stuff and have sort of a conceptual understanding
of various technologies but in practical day to day things im an utter noob. How often is a person just learning server for the first time going to have to build and understand and entire DHCP infrastructure? I guess its important to know if you’ve been around a while
so maybe I was steered into water that was slightly over my head?

Maybe we just need to stop evil pirate lord Bloth who looks just like this Morgrim Tidewalker from World of Warcraft. I guess if you think of studying on those terms it makes it much more fun. Wait is that the basis for most religion or is that too atheistic thinking. Hummm, probably too much philosophy for a server student blog.

So I guess we could get on to doing some questions, maybe? The first question I’ve got today is not overly difficult or logically complicated but I do think its important, as is understanding the replication effects of a global group vs a universal group that I still dont fully understand. Regardless understanding a central store seems to be a common theme. I still need to figure out exactly what the benefits of using .admx files is but im sure ill get there.

This seems like fairly basic best practice type of things, I give this question two thumbs up.


The wording on this seems a bit thin or I possibly dont understand what its asking. So ive got a XML configuring all of the roles and features I want on several servers? If that’s the case then it possibly makes sense other than that Im in the dark as to the meaning of
this one.

We are only left to assume what this mysterious XML files actually does in the explanation. Bummer. So I guess ill stick with their intent is to use an XML to configure roles and features on a several machines?

Nothing overly complicated, no incomplete sentence just a note about what time change is considered. I would assume it would be sensitive but apparently its not.

As you can see its under “non-sensitive privilege” use.

This seems obscure as using powershell for this may not be commonplace in practice how ever I suppose its good to be able to recognize this error and be able to troubleshoot it through a gui or (as in this case) powershell.

here is how to do it through user right assignment in the gui in case that’s more helpful.

Nothing to complicated here just solid info about how to create a global catalog (is there a universal catalog?)

I suppose I found the set-adobject line to be slightly surprising. Not sure why but I do wish we had a whole line of code to get a more complete picture of this. Not sure if the line listed on TechNet is still functional or not.

Set-ADObject “CN=NTDS Settings,CN=Fabrikam-DC1,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM” -Replace@{options=’1′}

Im sure ill remember that the next time I need to set up a GC server…
