What is Google Plus missing? It feels right. It has very good features and a pretty layout. It's easier to manage connections with friends and strangers alike. So why is it lagging in popularity so much?

Question: For someone using a laptop with Windows 10 and Hyper-V (and enough resources to run several VM's at once) what would you recommend for a student trying to learn and practice with Windows Server 2012 R2 file server clustering? The student wants to build a 2-node failover cluster, and would like to use a shared virtual disk (SMB3 or iSCSI, etc.). If there's a good and concise tutorial somewhere, please post a link? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Geeks: I am in need of advice. I have two (2) 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA3 HDDs sitting here doing nothing. I do not have a box to fit them in. I'd like to put them to use (SAN, NAS, server device, etc.) for the least amount of cost. Ideas?

5 Things I Learned From My Amtrak Writer's Residency #AmtrakResidency #writing #travel

Is there a way to pivot a hash table? I have a chunk of #powershell code to pull all the SPNs from an Active Directory domain, but the default structure places each hostname on a new row. I want the hostnames as column 1, and list the SPN's below. Here's my code...

cls
$search = New-Object DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher([ADSI]“”)
$search.filter = “(servicePrincipalName=*)”
$results = $search.Findall()

$dataset = @()

foreach($result in $results)
{
$userEntry = $result.GetDirectoryEntry()
$row = New-Object PSObject
$row | Add-Member -Name "Name" -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $($userEntry.name)
$row | Add-Member -Name "DN" -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $($userEntry.distinguishedName)

$i = 1
foreach($SPN in $userEntry.servicePrincipalName)
{
$row | Add-Member -Name "SPN$i" -MemberType NoteProperty -Value $SPN
$i++
}
$dataset += $row
}
$dataset | Group-Object "Name"| Out-GridView

I realised that I focused on the result line so I tested your script to understand you're not working with native object but you created your own.

By reducing the scope to one machine name (a DC as it as several SPNs) your script is working pretty fine (you can even get rid of the Group-Object part).
But when I try to extand the scope to any object having at least one SPN, the result is not relevant anymore.

The only way I found is not a clean one :
$dataset | Select-Object -Property Name,SPN1,SPN2,SPN3,SPN4,SPN5,SPN6,SPN7,SPN8,SPN9,SPN10,SPN11,SPN12,SPN13,SPN14,SPN15,SPN16,SPN17,SPN18,SPN19,SPN20 | Out-GridView

In my environment 20 spns is not enough to get alle the info.

If you're not familiar with the song, it was written as two separate scores (yes, there's sheet music they had to learn).  The third part was added/improv'd by Dweezil.  F-ing awesome work.  Musicians will probably appreciate this more than non, but whatever.  Enjoy!

This store is easy to get to for anyone in the eastern part of VB (Lynnhaven Pkwy to the oceanfront) and the staff is very helpful. They've rarely not had what I needed in stock.

I had the crab cake sandwich and sampled quite a few beers. Fantastic beer selection. Good prices. Food is very good and reasonable prices on that as well. Atmosphere is spartan and laid back, not fancy. If I lived closer I'd probably spend my entire paycheck there.
