Hi All,

I currently work as a system administrator/engineer.  I really enjoy helping and more importantly I enjoy learning.  I am an MCSE (NT/2000/2003) MCSA (2000/2003), MCITP: Server & Enterprise Administrator, MCSE/MCSA (2012 Server Inf) CISSP.  Not really sure what all those mean other than I've taken a bunch of tests.  Maybe they can help my resume get noticed when recruiters do keyword searches.   I originally started with the NT tests when I was new to the field because the company I worked for gave us cash for every test we passed and that was enough incentive for me.

I don't know everything and no one does but as a collective group we do a good job on these boards.  

Everyone that posts on the activedir list. All the Micrsoft MVPs... they really put a lot of time into this and truly deserve the accolades

All the great blogs and bloggers out there helping the community; blogs are really a great way to learn and I appreciate them.  I enjoy the askds and askpfe blogs the most.  

Metallica and all the bands from the grundge era, yes I'm an aging Gen Xer and after a long day or a hard day I like to crank the music loud on the way home... it really helps!!  One of my regrets in life is not seeing Nirvana live before Kurt Cobain died.

I like to only answer on the boards and get the community involved but I can be reached through my blog.

I was a 5 time Microsoft MVP for Directory Services.  I lost the MVP due to who I went to work for.

***IMPORTANT NOTE:  My participation here is done as me, not on behalf of my employer.  My answers are not "official" recommendations from Microsoft ***

I'm a former Army solider and a very grateful thanks to those that served during war time.



Thanks
Mike
