WordPress Worm

There’s a worm about that attacks blogs via subscriber accounts. I’ve noticed a few recent registrations without any subsequent comment – and really the only reason to register on my blog is to comment – so I did think this odd. For security I have deleted all recent accounts that registered and did not comment….

My New Year’s pressie from Microsoft

Notification of an MVP award was in my inbox this morning – a very nice way to start the new year! I only hope I can find myself some good ILM 2 projects in 2009. The last few months of 2008 was all about Exchange, and next week I’m off on a SCOM course. Still,…

Summer hols time

I won’t be round for a couple of weeks, in case anyone is wondering why I haven’t approved a comment. If you have questions don’t forget the MS ILM Forum which seems to be working really well, with Ahmad and Markus providing lots of great answers. Wish that had existed when I started out with…

Priviledged Passwords, and Why I haven’t been posting for a while

The second topic first – I’m still here, but haven’t had the opportunity to do anything much related to IdM lately. As some readers will be aware, I started this blog during a period of voluntary unemployment as a way of documenting all the things I’d learnt about MIIS in the previous 2 years. Partly…

That’s it for a while

I’m off travelling for the next month or so, and then I’ll be settling into a new home in Geneva. I’ve pretty much come to the end of the articles I had in mind when I started this blog. I hope they have been of use to some people (and thanks to those who’ve been…

What I hope to do with this blog

I am now at the end of a fascinating MIIS project that has monopolised the last two years of my working life. From knowing absolutely nothing about IdM I now find myself, not only comfortable with the usual AD, LDAP and SQL type management agents, but also happily delving into Extensible MAs, and using MIIS…
