What is Active Directory? How does it work?

Do you have a shaky grasp on the AD fundamentals? Are you unsure of what is meant by "operations masters?" Are you not sure if you should use .local or not in your internal AD FQDN?

Boy, do I have a treat for you! I just wrote a pretty long Q&A on ServerFault about these very things. You should hop on over and take a read!

Check it out here!

Things are different

Welp, it's been two weeks, so I think it's time to make it official on the Internet. I no longer work in higher education. I've moved on to a great opportunity at a non-profit. I'm still in Philadelphia and I still have ties to education, but I'm not working at a university anymore.

It was a great experience, and maybe I'll be back in the higher-ed game one day, but for now I'm moving on! I still hope to write posts that are relevant to everyone, so stay tuned!
