Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 in Beta

Recently I started to budget and plan on how I will transition our Exchange Server 2003 to 2007. The Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Mainstream Support retired this year and I have a year to transition my users to version 2007. No worries, no rush, I will take my time to prepare for this project. I still have 'till 2014 for extended support.

I was browsing one of my favorite Tech website eweek.com and read this article about the public beta release for Exchange Server 2010. I said great, the technology is always one step ahead.

"Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, the follow-up to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, includes several new features designed to appeal to both the IT administrator and enterprise user, as Microsoft prepares for hard competition against Google, IBM, Cisco and others moving aggressively into the enterprise-solutions space." (2009, eweek.com)

The Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 includes welcome improvements and eweek.com provided a slideshow for you to enjoy. Visit eweek.com.

Well, reading this information might change my approach of upgrading. Now I have to gather information about the Exchange Server 2010 and see if I can jump to this implementation. I will share my experience when I across the bridge.

Cheers for now,

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
