DirectAccess breaks after installing UAG SP1 Update 1

Last week Microsoft released Forefront UAG SP1 Update 1 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=27604). After installing the update our DirectAccess clients lost corporate connectivity. A quick look on our UAG server learned that the DirectAccess Monitor reported the DNS64 as Not Healthy. Looking through the UAG services I discovered that the Microsoft Forefront UAG DNS64 Service was not running […]

While trying to setup our new OSD we couldn’t get the network up while in WinPE. We had already imported the latest WinPE driver CAB from Dell, but still we were not seeing any NIC’s within WinPE. I tried to import the drivers manually instead of using the Dell tools and got errors for a […]

Online archive access with Outlook 2007

I have been happily using Outlook 2010 now for a few months and love the access to my Exchange 2010 online archive. However, since SCCM is not functional yet some of my co-workers are still on Office 2007 (and thus Outlook 2007). Support for Exchange 2010 online archive has been announced a while back and […]

Day three in Berlin. Today was the first time that the name System Center Configuration Manager vNext wasn’t used anymore. It’s announced that the next installment of SCCM will be called SCCM 2012. So yes, unfortunately we have to wait a bit longer before we can see it in a production environment.

OCS 2007 R2: Error with Group Expansion

Our OCS client gave an unknown error when trying to expand Distribution Groups. After lots of searching I found this http://blogs.technet.com/greganth/archive/2009/03/26/office-communicator-error-message-received-when-expanding-a-group-distribution-list.aspx. After trying this we still had the issue. So after finding out that you can test groupexpansion when connecting to the DG URL from the OCS server itself (localhost), I got an error message. […]

Taking the Dell Latitude XT2 to 7 (and back again)

Last week I’ve received my Dell Latitude XT2. Standard the XT2 is equipped with Vista business and receives its multi-touch capabilities through the N-trig driver. Since Windows 7 has native support for multi-touch I decided to install Windows 7. Before staring the installation I made a manual full backup with my Windows home server and […]
