Fix Transport Service Errors on a Fresh Installation of Exchange 2016

Recently, I was building out an Exchange 2016 environment for a customer to replace their Exchange 2010 installation. The new environment consisted of four Exchange 2016 Mailbox servers and two Edge Transport servers.

Windows Defender vs. Windows Defender ATP

Beyond turning on a firewall, the next basic steps to protecting a system are to activate anti-virus and anti-malware software. Windows now provides these functions built-in, in the form of the Windows Defender tool. (Users have the option of turning off Windows Defender and instead using third-party tools.) Windows Defender provides classic, signature-based analysis on a real-time basis. That is, if a user tries to launch a file recognized as bad, Defender intervenes. Note that while IT administrators might also benefit from a management tool to harvest reporting data from Defender, the tool itself operates effectively without any other software installed.

Modern IT Management Defined: DevOps, ITIL, Cloud, Agile, or All of the Above?

What if I told you that you had to take your management platforms and start over, but this time you needed to plan for the next generation of how you'd work with your teams.  What if I told you that you needed to re-address how you dealt with your operational lifecycle, development, and release management.  This is what my team and I did over the last several months.  We decided that we'd look at what the management landscape will look like years from now and apply those concepts to the tools being released by Microsoft for the cloud-centric world.
