WGUiSW Idol 3rd place award

 

Do you remember when I posted on my blog a topic “What’s new in Active Directory in Windows Server 2012” ?

I mentioned there that I presented this over LiveMeeting during WGUiSW Idol 2013 competition organized by WGUiSW group. Actually, it was over Skype as we had a LiveMeeting connection issue 🙂

Finally, I was able to present my presentation. At the end, I was awarded with statue for 3rd place in the competition. You may see my trophy below 😀

Thank you to all those people who voted for me!

Goodbye DCPROMO, I won’t be missing you!

 

As you maybe remember, I mentioned in one of my previous articles on this blog titled “What’s new in Active Directory in Windows Server 2012” that DCPROMO is deprecated and you cannot use it anymore to promote new Domain Controller.

You may wish to watch a historical DCPROMO in Microsoft company where they upgraded the largest Master User Domain on NT4 into Windows 2000 domain.

You were able to see an excitement because that was the first dcpromo in the world! Those people were proud that they invented something powerful and completely new.

And now, their tool has gone, you cannot use it anymore to promote new DC. DCPROMO is integrated with Domain Controller promotion wizard.
