A long time ago when I first started working with MaXware Identity Center, I had to pass a hands-on test to demonstrate my proficiency with Identity Center and Virtual Directory. The part of this whole exam that scared me the most was provisioning to Microsoft Exchange.  Long story short, I aced the exam and successfully provisioned to all of my target systems including Exchange. Recently I was asked to set up provisioning to Microsoft Exchange 2010 specifically via PowerShell. So I got to earn a little education along the way. To start with there are a few pre-requisites that you need: Ensure 64 bit PowerShell 2.0 is installed on the server Ensure that the Exchange 2010 Console is installed on the server There are a few steps that I'm going to skip along the way mostly because they deal more with PowerShell scripting than Identity Management. You'll need to create ... (more)

SECUDE’s Secure SignOn Version 7.2 Supports Windows 7 Platform

Darmstadt, December 11, 2009 - Multiple login procedures with different user name/password combinations are often productivity-sapping inconvenience for employees.

Servers, Energy Consumption & Green IT

Darmstadt, December 22, 2009 - “I live responsibly on this planet. Whether politicians the world over are concerned or not, I am concerned about global climate change.

Going Green The Copenhagen Summit may not have achieved what was hoped for. However, SECUDE, in its own modest way, has taken the initiative to tackle en... (more)

Setting the Driver Straight

I've been working on setting up a new environment for SAP IDM 7.1 SP5 (yes I know 6 is available). This installation is notable for me since I am configuring it around: Windows Server 2008R2 64Bit Microsoft SQL Server 2008R2 64Bit So it's my first pure 64-bit system.  I'm pretty excited. I got the OS installed no problem.  I got SQL installed. (I have to say, 2008R2 is probably the smoothest SQL install I've done since SQL Server 7.  Very much a fan.) I got the IDM DesignTime and Runtime installs completed with no problems. I installed Java 1.6 and installed the 3.0 SQL Server dri... (more)
