Hi there !

I hope everything is allright. Now it’s been a long time since I last wrote on the blog.
Yes, what have I done ? Yeah, I have worked hard in a migrate projects in a large company. Where I was one of many packaging engineers – to package 1200 applications. From an old Windows environment to a new one. Where I ran into a problem when we moved many computer object to an application group to another. Of course , we had a powershell script to do this work. But this was still a problem when you had a lot to do, for the moment . Therefore , I made a gui that less experienced powershell users could use, to help me move computer objects . This is the result :

Requirements:

1. Windows 7 or newer
2. RSAT-tool for windows 7 or 8, and enable the Active Directory powershell Module
3. Permission to  move Active Directory computer objects.

Download the tool here: MoveAdDevices1.0.3

During the installation of the new System Center Configuration Manager 2012 with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 I got the following error and the installtion couldn´t continue.

ERROR: Failed to get SID for user (NT Service\MSSQLSERVER)
ERROR: Failed to get the buffer size for LookupAccountName. Error= 1722

 

To fix it: I creat a domain account that has administrative right on the server and change the service account that the SQL services are running with to it and ran the setup again. This time it finished with no errors.

Here is a method on how to add tow tabs, Photo and Employee, to the user property sheet in Active Directory and it will be displayed in Outlook, Lync and SharePoint.

Download adext.zip and extract it.
Copy the adExt.dll to C:\

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe C:\adExt.dll

or the 64-bit version if your OS is 64-bit:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe C:\adExt.dll

Done!
