Ten years after Active Directory's release, a lot has been learned. Unfortunately, many organizations rolled out Active Directory early on and never had the time or resources to revisit what *really* needs to be done to secure and manage the directory service in a dynamic enterprise. Dan Holme, who has led Active Directory designs and administrative overhauls for Fortune-caliber clients, shares the best practices, customized scripts, and guidance. What has worked and what has failed in the "real world," and why, and what can you learn from those lessons? This “rapid fire” session includes role-based management and tools that enable a documented, auditable, secure, manageable, and supportable environment. You’ll take away ready-to-use tools that Dan built to support NBC during the Beijing and Vancouver Games.
