Fighting Azure AD Connects custom installer

I’ve recently been spending more and more time looking into various cloud technologies such as AWS and Azure. One of the projects I’ve been working on required the on-premises active directory to be extended to Azure to allow for a future introduction of various Office365 elements.
The process for doing this is fairly easy as it’s just a matter of installing the Azure Active Directory Connect tool onto a server, creating the domain in the Azure portal and then waiting for Azure AD connect to Sync.

Microsoft joins the Linux Foundation

Big news: this year Microsoft has joined the Linux Foundation as a platinum member.

Microsoft contributed a lot to Linux over the past several years, first of all, with improving support for Hyper-V. The company appears to be a reasonably good open source community member, not just publishing source code repositories that are sporadically updated from an internal development branch, but actually performing development in the open community contributions and being open for discussion and finding consensus regarding new features.

I take a look at the article of Tao Yang to do this installation. My SQL Server is already ready, so I’ll not speak about this in this article.

Because I have a small server at home, I try to win a maximum of space, for the storage and for the memory, by installing VM in Server Core. To note, it is very good for security/patches management.
