How Anonymous Relay works in Exchange 2013

This article is to provide you, the reader, the knowledge on how to properly create an Exchange 2013 Relay Connector. In Exchange 2013, I am utilizing a multi-role server that has both the Client Access Server and Mailbox Server roles. We’ll want to head to the mail flow section in the Exchange Administration Center (EAC) that you can access by going to https://OWA.domain.com/ECP. --> Please see the rest on the blog : http://www.shudnow.net/2013/06/04/how-anonymous-relay-works-in-exchange-2013/

Save network bandwidth by using Out-of-Band Initial Replication method in Hyper-V Replica

Important Hyper-V Update–July 2013 rollup

The Windows Server 2012 July 2013 update rollup is an important one to install on Hyper-V servers.  Specifically because of this update: 2853952  Active Directory database becomes corrupted when a Windows Server 2012-based Hyper-V host server crashes While I have been running Active Directory with no problems on Windows Server 2012, I have talked to customers who were effected by this, and AD recovery is never a fun operation to perform.

Part 1: Reverse Proxy for Exchange Server 2013 using IIS ARR

For a long time, ForeFront TMG (and ISA before it) has been the go-to Microsoft reverse proxy solution for many applications, including Exchange Server. However, with no more development roadmap for TMG 2010 a lot of customers are looking out for an alternative solution that works well with Exchange Server 2013. The Windows team have added an additional component called Application Request Routing (ARR, or as Greg the pirate says, ARR!) 2.5 to the Internet Information Service (IIS) role, which enables IIS to handle reverse proxy...

Echanger des fichiers entre serveur Hyper-V et machines virtuelles

C’est une question récurrente depuis des années : comment échanger des fichiers avec une machne virtuelle ? Si celle-ci est connectée sur le réseau physique il n’y a en général pas de problème, on peut passer par le partage de fichiers classiques, voire par le protocole RDP. Par contre nous avons souvent des machines virtuelles sans connexion réseau ou connectée à un réseau privé sans connexion avec le serveur hôte. Dans ce cas j’ai souvent dû passer par des images ISO de DVD, voire des images de disquettes, ou plus récemment par des... [Lire la suite]

Synchronisation des horloges dans un environnement virtualisé

Dans un environnement de domaine Windows, la synchronisation des horloges des différents systèmes est primordiale, notamment pour que le protocole d’authentification Kerberos fonctionne. Il y a d’autres effets de bord sur certaines applications qui peuvent donner des erreurs difficiles à diagnostiquer si des systèmes ne sont pas synchronisés entre eux, ou ne sont pas à l’heure exacte. Les environnements de type cloud hybride, en particulier, nécessitent que l’heure des systèmes locaux soient correcte vis-à-vis des systèmes dans le... [Lire la suite]
