TechEd was a smash !!

In a nutshell, I had a blast: I spoke to 800 people in two sessions about GP troubleshooting I had 300 people lined up for 100 of my books which we gave away at the NetIQ booth I met countless people at the Specops guys’ booth showing off my new PolicyPak software In short, it was awesome!! Thanks everyone for coming out and saying hi!! Also, my pal Bryan Von Axelson from Microsoft interviewed me for Virtual TechEd.

Untested Tip: GPupdate /force with more teeth for XP

So when you move a user or computer around in AD.. the target computer doesn’t know it’s been moved for a while. Sometimes, a LONG while. So, if you wanted to, you might think you could just type in gpupdate /force and it would “reset” where the computer thought it was in AD. That’s true for Vista. But XP (including XP/SP2) doesn’t honor this request. This hotfix apparently bridges that gap: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/891630 (Again, I haven’t directly tested this one.)
