ARCONI.COM has been updated! I completely overhauled the site. Yes this is
the second time in 2 years but my traffic and my content have grown. So I
implemented a content management solution called Joomla. This will make it
much faster to get articles published and changes implemented. Now you can
comment on articles, utilities and scripts in real time. Also I will have
much fresher content. Well I hope you enjoy it and pleased let me know if
you would like to see any other changes.
NTP Time source setup utility
- So I had to setup a bunch of 2003 servers to use an
external time source (NTP servers) for a domain a while back and they were
dispersed around the world. So I looked up the TechNet article for setting
up NTP on a 2003 server and there are many registry settings to set up a
2003 sever to use an external time source for its w32time updates. So I
wrote this one to take care of it.
Winbatch script update
- I added another winbatch script into the archive. This one moves users
from one OU to another without you providing their original OU. It searches
from the root for each user yet is surprisingly fast even for large move of
800 or more users.
Log Parser!! - -Ok
Another revision!! I have added some very cool features. Now you can search
multiple files at the same time and you can set how many "extra" lines of
data you want to capture after the initial line is found.
Log Parser!! - New tool
-This utility is a revised version of the "Exchange Log Parsing tool". This
is great for opening any text based file and searching through it.
Especially good for cumbersome log files. Re-tuned the code so it many time
Updated some broken links and made downloading some of
the programs easier.
"Fix your domain after a "Domain Rename Procedure"
- After a domain rename thier can be numerous problems. I ran across one
frequently and here is how I fixed it.
"Migrating or integrating domains"
- Migrating a domain from one to another or integrating production domains
together from a merger or buyot is tricky and depending on the size of the
company can be a huge undertaking. Lucky for you I have completed many of
these and I have started a series on how to perform a migration or
integration successfully. Follow this link to read more..
Arconi Times Blog!!! -
So I have completely "re-vamped" my blog. Now I will post all articles and
fixes listed here at Arconi SoftTools on my blog as well. This will give you
an easier way to comment or ask questions about the article. Please check it
out and let me of any change you might like to see. Thanks again for coming
