I recently had an interesting project come my way, something I hadn't done in quite awhile: migrate an existing Exchange environment to a newer version. The existing environment was running Exchange 2003 SP2 and using standard Outlook 2003 clients, OWA clients, and Activesync Windows Mobile 5 clients and had a need to move to Exchange 2007. Here are some thoughts on what to expect when setting up and migrating an Exchange 2003 environment to Exchange 2007.

In SuSE 10.2, the decision was made to get away from the old, somewhat insecure USB file system (/proc/bus/usb, known as usbfs). The catch with this however is some applications, such as VMWare 5.x, do not use newer methods of USB connectivity. This article goes through the steps needed in SuSE 10.2 to recompile the kernel with legacy USB filesystem support.

Windows Password Auditing 101

Sometimes, you just have to be a hacker to get your job done. This is generally referred to as 'White Hat' hacking. Any admin will tell you that it's a fine line with users passwords that you have to walk. Too complex, and they write them down on sticky notes found under their keyboards. Too easy, and you have the risk of brute force attacks. Microsoft has made improvements in enforcing password complexity within Active Directory, however, these methods can be circumvented in a number of ways, some by accident and some out of malice or procrastination. Thus it's prudent for any administrator to do a semi-annual review of users passwords and ensure their complexity.

I recently found out that my company was paying around $.30 cents a minute per line for a teleconferencing solution, racking up around $800 a month during the slow months. Naturally, Linux came to mind to lower this cost. A spare server + a Linux distribution + Asterisk = an 80% cost savings in no time.

In America, many large corporations pay off lobby politicians to pass legislation (that they helped write) and grab judicial precedents in corporation-friendly jurisdictions so they can protect their interests in the short term, without thinking about any repercussions for society. Many of these laws are next to impossible to enforce, but it hasn't even phased those that passed or lobbied for these laws. As a result, millions of people break the law on a daily basis, turning normal, law abiding citizens into criminals.
