Even if it adds more functions, it’s less clean that the solution I’m writing about today. --> Please see the rest on Vladan's blog : http://www.vladan.fr/windows-7-explorer-for-windows-8/

Complete guide on configuring KEMP VLM load balancer for Exchange 2013

Introduction Since Exchange Server 2013 reached RTM the 11th of October, and finally it was published to MSDN the 24th of October. This post is based on the RTM version of Exchange 2013.

Today's release announcement of Samba 4.0 means that it is now possible to control an AD domain from a non-Windows system. "Samba 4.0 comprises an LDAP directory server, Heimdal Kerberos authentication server, a secure Dynamic DNS server, and... [Lire la suite]
