.. between the blog posts at the moment.
There has been a huge change in my life. I moved in with my girlfriend into her house and I have become a step-dad in the bargain.
And I was not prepared with the changes that came with owning a house and being a step-dad.
Firstly, there are a bazillion things that needs fixing in the house. And so far we have finished one room (almost, we are missing some IKEA furniture). After that we have the living room, kitchen and then the rest of the 6 rooms.
And being a step-dad is a tough job, since I don't really know how harsh I can be when it comes to the discipline. But' its a learning process and I suspect I will never be fully educated.
On the work front it has been like entering a 90's film, it looks good on the surface but when you start to scratch it you find a lot of faults.
There are 20+ domains, 1000+ servers and everything is running on old hardware. And when it comes to the software I can count all the servers on one hand that runs a operating system newer then 2008 R2.
They didn't even have a deployment solution for the servers, they did everything manually with CD's!
We even have a few NT domains!
After the vacation I have a tonne of things to fix and I don't even know where to start!
I suspect that the first task will be to migrate the old NT domains,
And I have a tough battle when it comes to trying to convince the bosses that we should migrate from VMWare to Hyper-V.
On the home-network front I have just now finished the physical installation of all the servers. And I have been living here since the beginning of April!
I will do my best to update the blog, but at the moment I am happy of I get some time in front of the computer.
Over and out!
