Exciting things I have seen on the internet November 18 2013

Performance Tuning Guidelines for Windows Server 2012 R2– ok- it’s a little early for most of us (like, two years too early), but it never hurts to get a jump on these things. This is pretty comprehensive (meaning looooong), and I’d suggest you read it BEFORE you’re up to you’re a**e in alligators.

AV Exclusion Recommendations  here you go – everything. With a cherry on top. There is now NO EXCUSE for a server to be incorrectly set up. This document makes a great Christmas present, by the way. All my family are getting hardcopy.

Dual IPv4/IPv6 name resolution this is very interesting. Really. For those of who think you can ignore it because you’ve got IPv6 disabled – Microsoft recommend  you DO NOT disable IPv6 –  stop being naughty.

Clint Boessen’s 5 minute guide to office 365 migrations. If you’ve only got five minutes, but want to know about office 365 migration… this’ll do it.

There’s a new version of the MBSA out. You know what it stands for, you use it regularly, in fact, I’m shocked you haven’t told me that it was released. I guess it just slipped your mind, yeah?

Last month I told you all about the new on-prem Outlook Connectivity Guided Walkthrough tool – well the Ehlo blog has finally written a post on it. So slow. So very slow.

Here’s a really good post by Andrew S Higginbotham on troubleshooting Transport agents. We’ve got at least one issue like that rumbling along at the moment.

Fixing failed content-indexes from Paul Cunningham

Tony Redmond has once again written a bunch of interesting and useful articles:

In fairness, there’s very rarely a post on his site that isn’t worth reading, for one reason or another.

Exchange 2013 CU2 doesn’t let you have more than 50 databases, despite it claiming otherwise. It’ll be fixed in CU3, apparently. I’ll let you have the list of things that are BROKEN in CU3 when I get it. Sigh.

Talking of CU3, it’s late. I could tell you why, but etc etc. let’s just say something cropped up at the last minute. Again. It’s getting predictable and boring, now.
