Configuring Manage Out to DirectAccess Clients

by Jordan Krause | October 2013 | Enterprise Articles

In this article by Jordan Krause, the author of the book Microsoft DirectAccess Best Practices and Troubleshooting, we will have a look at how Manage Out is configured to DirectAccess clients. DirectAccess is obviously a wonderful technology from the user's perspective. There is literally nothing that they have to do to connect to company resources; it just happens automatically whenever they have Internet access. What isn't talked about nearly as often is the fact that DirectAccess is possibly of even greater benefit to the IT department. Because DirectAccess is so seamless and automatic, your Group Policy settings, patches, scripts, and everything that you want to use to manage and manipulate those client machines is always able to run. You no longer have to wait for the user to launch a VPN or come into the office for their computer to be secured with the latest policies. You no longer have to worry about laptops being off the network for weeks at a time, and coming back into the network after having been connected to dozens of public hotspots while someone was on a vacation with it. While many of these management functions work right out of the box with a standard DirectAccess configuration, there are some functions that will need a couple of extra steps to get them working properly. That is our topic of discussion for this article.

We are going to cover the following topics:

  • Pulls versus pushes
  • What does Manage Out have to do with IPv6
  • Creating a selective ISATAP environment
  • Setting up client-side firewall rules
  • RDP to a DirectAccess client
  • No ISATAP with multisite DirectAccess

Configuring and Managing the Mailbox Server Role

by Michael Van Horenbeeck Peter De Tender | September 2013 | Cookbooks Enterprise Articles Microsoft

In this article by Michael Van Horenbeeck and Peter De Tender, authors of the book Microsoft Exchange 2013 Cookbook, you will learn how to perform the tasks necessary to set up, configure, and maintain the Mailbox Server Role, including:

  • Creating and removing mailbox databases
  • Mounting and dismounting databases
  • Moving database files to another location
  • Configuring circular logging
  • Creating and removing mailboxes

  • Managing personal archives

Over the years, the Mailbox Server Role has evolved into something more than just a place where mail data is stored. Although its primary role remains storing and managing mail-related data, it inherited large chunks of what used to be the Hub Transport server and Unified Messaging server. This shows that the Mailbox Server role in Exchange 2013 resembles an Exchange 2010 multi-role server in many ways.

Conceptualizing IT Service Management

by Ankush Agarwal | August 2013 | Enterprise Articles

In this article by Ankush Agarwal, the author of this book ServiceDesk Plus 8.x EssentialsServiceDesk Plus 8.x Essentials, we intend to focus on certain ITIL concepts while clarifying the differences between some of the frequently misinterpreted terms.

Before imparting on the journey to understand how ServiceDesk Plus helps in managing IT services, let's have a common understanding of some terminologies which are commonly used but often misinterpreted. Terms such as Problem Management, Release Management, SLA, IT Process, and so, have now moved from the geek dictionary to common IT lingo. While this outspread has helped Service Management gain more focus and acceptance, it has also established the need for having a clear definition of such terms.

ITIL® has successfully provided a platform for this. The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a set of practices for IT Service Management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business. It is a practical approach for planning and delivering IT services to the business and also provides a common ground for various IT service-related terms. ITIL, being the most widely adopted approach, also provides the framework for many of the IT Service Management software and tools. ServiceDesk Plus is a popular example of such software, which helps to comprehensively manage IT assets and services.

However, to make the best use of this book, which elaborates the services of the ServiceDesk Plus software, it is imperative to first understand some of the IT service concepts.

Please note that all terms used in this book are as defined in the official ITIL publications.
