Two more hurdles jumped

Successfully moved global catalog servers from AD DC to another on my test domain today. This was after stuffing around with dns last week doing some trials, and leaving it pointed at the wrong place, so the domain controllers wouldn't talk to each other. "frigging dns" is all I have to say about that.

Also successfully connected an OS X mac and an OS 7.6.1 mac to the servers, doing file and print sharing.

Now that those problems have been overcome I can go back to the original plan of having new print and dhcp servers setup by the weekend for a big changeover. *scary*

ps, in case you were wondering what on earth I'm talking about.. I'm planning our work deployment of active directory. We're upgrading our windows NT 4 domain to 2003. You know those ads on at the moment that say "we're merging all these domains and making it all easier blah blah blah" to which the boss just looks at him, and so he says "we'll save $2 million a year" ... well we're nothing like that really, given that we only have one domain and two servers, but that's what we're doing. I've been thinking about it for a couple of months, but really working frantically on it for the past couple of weeks when we all suddenly realised that next year was only 6 weeks away, and we plan to go live with it mid January. fun fun fun!

That AD DC bit reminds me of the ACDC wav file. I dunno if you have heard it, it's old I guess, but very funny. It's the one where a guy calls a radio show quiz and just has to give the answer ACDC. I can send it you if you havent heard it, or you can prob find it on Kazaa.

that's incredibly funny, because I actually listen to the radio station that recorded it, and heard it live (or at least replayed later). Mark from Greenacre. Absolutely hilarious, I have a copy of it somewhere. That's amazing that you've heard it also :):):)

you really have to wonder about some people, when the link is right there in front of them, but they ignore that and want you to spoon feed it to them ..
