Te lo dico... Ero in coda, a passo d'uomo, anche se sembra che stia correndo (molto deluso dalla qualità della foto, devo dire)

Well, ok, THANKS MICROSOFT!

Spent too many damned working hours to debug some mysterious authentication errors suddenly popping out when external Outlook clients were trying to connect to an Exchange 2010 using RPC over HTTPS (ie Outlook Anywhere).

The culprit, guess what, is a f****g Windows Update, KB3002657!!! 

Patch Tuesday is more and more becoming a day for the brave: for months now there has been some Tuesday patch creating havoc either at client or server level! which, imho, is far worse than designing something as ugly (UI-wise) as Win8... MS can't afford to become more unreliable than it already is, it just can't.

Anyway, in an environment with two AD controllers and an Exchange 2010 server, I started by uninstalling KB3002657 from the Exchange server only, and it looks like it's enough to solve my authentication problems.

Update: 2015-03-12 09:45 PST – Now that I've had a chance to sleep I've updated this post to include some of the specific errors we saw and gather some additional information from around the web. Hopefully it will help others diagnose this problem. We installed our Windows Updates this week and ...

Well, so far, so good...

- installed v2 patch on 2003 server (had to reboot, BTW)
- reinstalled original patch on Exchange server

and...

- Netgear NAS is serving AD authenticated shares again
- external Outlook users are not complaining

So it looks like the incident is over. Thanks again, Microsoft :-}

Although it goes against the importance and value of diversity, the answer is a good thought experiment.

Italians do it better? 

Well, not when it's time to develop a companion site to Expo 2015: starting from the pitiful name, and going on with supported languages language: Italian!

Not to talk about the client, which is the Ministry of Cultural Assets and Properties itself.

Not to talk about the cheap price, which is said to be around 5m Euros... (EDIT: the Ministry reports that the real implementation cost is 35.000€+VAT)

Not to talk about the social internet's reaction: to have some good laugh, use a translator and look for #verybello  tweets :-)
The website design? Sloppy and anonymous, like a blog with a low cost design. Simply don't waste your time and money investing on an awful website.

you know you gotta watch out

So satisfied that Lauryn Hill's Miseducation gets such an important recognition (totally deserved)
Enshrining in the US Library of Congress was perhaps not what British once-rock band Radiohead had in mind when writing OK Computer, a classic dystopian album from 1997 about (among other sunny...

Wishing luck to these guys, who are trying to introduce a mobile payment system in Italy, which can also be used for person-to-person transactions.

Let's hope 2015 is the year things start moving.
 
Auguri a chi è stato con noi nel 2014 con la Beta e a tutti coloro che ci accompagneranno nel 2015 (e oltre!).
Buone feste da tutto il team di #Satispay
