Myths #3: Give without giving

One more mystery for me: how give everything without giving everything. This is exactly the question I see very often in various forums and other places. This is the question I hear personally from time to time. It can be in asked in several forms, the most frequent forms are: 1) How can I give a user local admin rights and be sure that they cannot do <put your own stuff here>? 2) How can I restrict my domain admin from accessing the <your very valuable information>? Naturally, at this point I start boiling and all that stuff, but let’s … Continue reading Myths #3: Give without giving

#RutechEd: Answering the questions, part II

At last, two remaining questions to be answered. 1) One of the attendees of the hands-on lab on Dynamic Access Control had read that a normal user (without administrative permissions) can classify files and folders. However, he hadn’t succeeded in achieving it. Here is what I tried and understood: i. Any user cannot change classification via explorer remotely (or at least I failed to achieve this). ii. Any user, which has full permissions on files can edit classification locally, e.g. from TS session. As far as I can understand, the “non-administrative user can edit it” part was related to automated … Continue reading #RutechEd: Answering the questions, part II

#RuTeched: answering the questions. Does the Dynamic Access Control work over replication?

As I said previously my labs were a success, still I wasn’t able to answer some questions and promised to answer them later. the time has come for the first of them. One of the visitors told me that he had had an experience when some of files’ attributes wouldn’t replicate over DFSR and asked me if there is any problem with DAC in the same situation. I could definitely experiment myself (and I will), but any experiment of mine would just give me an answer: “yes” or “no”. Or “may be” for that matter. It wouldn’t explain why. As … Continue reading #RuTeched: answering the questions. Does the Dynamic Access Control work over replication?

#RutechEd: Lab Results

I have received survey results for my hands-on labs during TechEd Russia. And are they awesome! Both my labs are in top5, moreover, one of them is the first in the list! I’m thrilled to bits =) Many thanks to all visitors: you’ve created such an aim for me, that I’ve already started to think about what to show you next year. My marks: DirectAccess: 9 out of 9 Dynamic Access Control: 8.55 out of 9

MCPClub: DirectAccess explained

13 Dec 2012 I finished the season at Microsoft MCP Club Moscow. I spoke about DirectAccess in 2012 and why is it worth to implement even if you haven’t done it with previous version. As usual the audience was just excellent, they forgave me all the small mistakes I made, knew some of the material better than I did and so on. Therefore, it was sweet meeting: I like it very much and it was a success. At the moment I’m processing the recording (I’ve lost video for the demonstration – chose a wrong mode for it), and thinking if … Continue reading MCPClub: DirectAccess explained

#RuTechEd is over

te TechEd Russia has finished its work. This time I was too busy to be a proper visitor: at the first day I was preparing my presentation and demos, at the second I checked my labs, delivering them and then… Then the TechEd ended =) As for my engagements: 1) Presentation. Advanced Persistent Threat: behind the scenes. Unfortunately, my part wasn’t very good. At least I think so, therefore I’ll improve what I failed (still I hope that no one noticed . Especially take into consideration the fact that our demos were total success). 2) The hands-on lab on Dynamic … Continue reading #RuTechEd is over

Yep, this year I don’t participate in Ask the Expert section, but instead I speak about Advanced Persistent Threat and I’m also a trainer for two labs: DirectAccess and Dynamic Access Control. I really look forward to the event. It must be thrilling as always. And I hope I will bring some knowledge and decisions upon my listeners

FeedDemon + Windows 8: overcoming problems

Will anyone be surprised to hear that I’m trying to move to windows 8 right now? No? Right. At the moment a couple issues make my stay on it uncomfortable or impossible: I still don’t have proper drivers for etoken for the OS. Evernote in the new OS with the new interface (we don’t use term “Metro” anymore) sucks. FeedDemon keeps giving me error messages in huge amount. And it seems as the latter problem now has a solution. First of all, here is the message:   or in text: “Error saving file: The process cannot access the file because … Continue reading FeedDemon + Windows 8: overcoming problems

Troubleshooting articles.

Once I have run into some article which was actually a list of references to the Windows IT Pro articles. I don’t even remember where I saw the article (probably it was WinITPro itself), but I all of a sudden remembered, that it was useful for me. The list was named in my collection as “troubleshooting learning path” and it truly is. below is the list. What you need to access any article stated here is to enter an InstantDoc ID in search on the main page of WinITPro.
