AdFind close to the finish line…

by @ Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017. Filed under general, tech

I believe we will see AdFind released in the next few days. It seems to be very stable, I use it every single day for literally thousands of queries of a very large production Active Directory environments (millions of user accounts). Speed perfs are amazingly useful especially for the Security Descriptors. I got most of […]

The Pollexy Project–Special Needs Voice Assistance

by @ Sunday, April 23rd, 2017. Filed under general, tech

I kept meaning to share this with everyone because I really want to get this video everywhere I can to get as much exposure as possible to it out in the world. Troy is a friend of mine that works for Amazon, he has a 16 year old son with Autism. See what cool thing […]

Now this is a great email…

by @ Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. Filed under general

I have been going through thousands of emails I was behind on and in great part there are a lot of “thanks but…” emails, this one is simply a thanks email. Loved it.   To: support@joeware.net Subject: Thank you! I just wanted to let you know that between ADFind, and some Unix/bash regular expressions-based pixie […]

From the mailbag… I want to see the information going through the pipeline from one command to the next…

  Hi, Joe, I’ve been using these 2 excellent utilities to manage users both in our AD domain and our legacy Novell eDirectory tree. Recently I needed to move disabled accounts without our ‘KEEP’ flag set into a Leavers OU and came up with the 2 commands below: adfind -h novserver -ssl -sslignoresrvcert -simple -b […]

I LOVE YOUR FREE TOOLS but…

by @ Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. Filed under general, tech

I am finally catching up on a lot of old email that I wasn’t able to get to, literally thousands of messages. I am quite happy with the number of people who find the tools useful saving them minutes or hours of time and the other comments of thanks we were told by MSFT this […]

AdFind V01.50.00 Beta 2 is now available

by @ Tuesday, April 18th, 2017. Filed under general, tech

  I have now uploaded a second beta of AdFind V01.50.00 to the website, you can find it at http://www.joeware.net/downloads/beta/adfind_v150_beta2.zip The previous beta had two main issues with it. First it was built with dynamic linking meaning that it looked for MSFT DLLs on the machine it was running on to utilize the API functions […]

Stand Alone Binary of AdFind Beta that runs on Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2 and newer (and possibly older)

by @ Tuesday, April 18th, 2017. Filed under general, tech

I previously released a beta for AdFind that wasn’t statically linked. I did that with the thought that one of the big benefits of using Visual Studio is that a lot of people would already have the necessarily DLLs. While a lot do, a lot also do not so I will be releasing a beta […]

Active Directory Deleted Objects

by @ Monday, April 10th, 2017. Filed under general, tech

In case it is ever a question (say like someone from MSFT tells you it works differently), objects deleted in Active Directory go into the Deleted Objects container[1] of the Partition the objects live in. They do not get moved to the Configuration Partition Deleted Objects container. [Mon 04/10/2017 14:37:42.83] C:\>adfind -hh k16tst-dc1.k16tst.test.loc -gcb -f […]

AdFind V01.50.00 Beta is now available

Filed under general, tech, updates

  I am now comfortable enough with the stability of AdFind V01.50.00 to release a beta of what is likely to be released. I went extra slow on testing on this version because I have converted the compiler from C++ Builder (previously Borland) to Visual Studio. This resulted in a considerable speed increase which really […]
