Exchange Autodiscover :: Love it, Because You Can’t Leave it

Ruby Nahal, Engineer

By Ruby Nahal, Systems Engineer

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

The days of ignoring the Outlook Exchange Autodiscover setup are long gone, friends. Historically, if you were using Exchange 2010 and did not have any remote users, there were tweaks you could make to suppress the Autodiscover errors so you could get away without going through the setup.

Josh Erdman Pays it Forward Armed with Passion + A Marshmallow Gun

Josh Erdman & R2D2 By April Cole Worley

One of These Things…

Josh was a technology-loving child of technophobes. Remember that song in Sesame Street “One of these things is not like the others”? Well, that about sums up Josh’s childhood. And it is not easy being the “one thing” unlike the others; particularly if you live on five acres miles away from the city and the only other child you are not related to lives at the end of a long dusty bike ride.

HOW TO // How To Form a Client Advisory Committee that Works

Client Advisory Committee

By Jeremy Koellish, COO

When you first start a business, it feels like your baby. You’re tired and excited and every time you look at her you swell with pride because she is beautiful and special (even if her head is a little coned and her cry sounds like a squeaky door).

But a business is not your baby (a lesson that becomes very clear as you scale up) and at some point, you need to separate from the emotional attachment you have to it in order to grow. And you find out how you ought to grow by asking your clients. Enter the Client Advisory Committee. We call ours TAG (TekTegrity Advisory Group) – but the name is not important. Getting it right is.

How to disarm VMware’s Snapshot Time Bomb
