Group Policy Search

Group Policy. Every IT admin has been there, and will know the pain of starting at lists and lists of GPO's searching for one that will perform the action that they need it to do. Even in Windows Server 2012 with 100's of GPOs to browse there is still no simple search function. Sure, you could hack up a nice little bit of powershell with the 'where' and 'filter' statements to try and find what you want. This is a bit tedious though and will have you pulling your hair out if you are not a powershell admin on a daily basis.

I hear your pain an present to you a site that all Windows admins should have to hand http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net. Say hello to Group Policy search!



Have a play with it. Bookmark it, and thank me later. This is not my creation it is copyright Microsoft even though they have not given it a proper URL just a default Azure Websites address.


Storage Spaces and Dedupe


This is the first video I have made based around Windows Server 2012 Storage Spaces and how to turn on the new deduplication feature in Windows Server 2012. There may be many more Videos to come, any suggestions on what people would like to see would be appreciated. I can do training videos on any aspect of the Windows 2012 and Windows 8 tracks.
