Later on in the year I've got a big RSA and SharePoint deployment, as I know 'Zippity Squat' about SharePoint, I thought the best way to get some hands on experience, was to work out how to integrate SecureID with Exchange 2013, (which I know a few things about!)

Despite my best efforts Office 2013 refused to change its dictionary from US to UK. Even after I went into the program options and changed it, the program continued to underline all my correct English spellings.

UPDATED - It's been a few years since I first saw this, and when I was trying to setup a McAfee Email Gateway this week, all my outbound mail was sat on the queue with this error. I assumed it was the appliance until I found the answer on my own website - Doh!

I wanted to give a copy of a VM to a colleague, so I removed all the snapshots, and cloned one of my test VM's. when I went to power on the original this happened;

One of the often overlooked tasks of a PKI deployment is setting your Certificate Services CRL. In my test environment I only have one PKI server so everything will be going on that one box.

A while back I uploaded a run through on how to deploy GRE tunnels and protect those tunnels with IPsec. That point-to-point GRE tunnel is a good solution, but if you have a lot of sites it's not a solution that scales very well.

Like most techies, I am always fiddling with things. One of my mottoes is "If you never break anything, you never learn how to fix things". So after messing around with the networks in VMware Workstation (What I typically use for connecting GNS3 to either real machines, or the outside world). I lost the network connections in GNS3 and could not get them back. Seems like any new NICs that you add are not listed either.

My laptop does not have RGB or DVI on it for an external monitor, it has just got an HDMI connector. While I was working in the office I thought I'll pop my headphones in and listen to some music, and was met with silence?

If you have the McAfee Agent installed (particularly if it was deployed via ePO). Then when you try and remove it, you will see this error.

While installing SQL 2012 the other day (on Server 2012, though you can also see this error on Windows 8) this jumped up and bit me, luckily I've seen problems with .Net on Server 2012 before.

I was doing some work with PKI and routers today, and after spending ages enrolling all my routers for certificates, I thought I'd save my hard work and return to it later. When I started the project up again, I was less than happy all the devices certificates had 'Disappeared'!

If you build machines form scratch, every time you need one it can take a while. To address that you can create a template and deploy machines from that. To make things even more efficient you can make then 'linked clones'. If you use VDI you will probably be aware of linked clones, they use the hard drive of the machine they were created from, and maintain a 'delta disk' that holds the differences, this make them very efficient at using hard drive space, (which is good if you are running on a laptop!)
