Yet again the testing and quality assurance process for Exchange updates has failed! Each time this happens it knocks the confidence IT professionals have in deploying Exchange updates, I’m sure with the end result being more unpatched Exchange Servers in the wild.

Announcing: Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE – In October Veeam announced a free Endpoint backup product for Windows 7 & higher and Server 2008 and higher, for physical machines. Betas are starting to be released as I write this (I’m just waiting for mine!).

On a couple of occassions recently I’ve changed an 180 day Windows 2012 R2 evaluation server into a full production version. This is particularly useful if your evaluation has worked out well, but you don’t want to reinstall a new producation server from scratch.
In this post we’ll look at the steps required to turn the evaluation server into a production server.
Please note, this does not work for Domain Controllers running on an evaluation license.
In this article we’ll look at using Get-ADComputer and Set-ADComputer to list computer accounts which haven’t logged in for xx days, and then automatically disable them.
In part 1 we looked at how to use Get-ADComputer to list computers by name and sort them by their last logon date with the premise that we can use the information to remove historic computer accounts from the domain.
Now we know the computer accounts we want to work with we will look at modifying the PowerShell command to automatically disable them.
