On the 1st of april (no its not a joke 🙂 ) I passed this exam (TS: Configuring Windows SharePoint Services 3.0) with 890 points, yet another exam added to my list. I have seen that the new server administration and enterprise administration for 2008 are out too.
Ken Schaefer has written a great article about total application pool isolation in IIS 7.0. I didn’t yet know this, but the guys and girls at the IIS team are making a beautiful product.
Today I passed exam:
70-649 “TS: Upgrading Your MCSE on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, Technology Specialist” with 925 points… =)
A lot of questions about IIS 7.0 and they were easy… There were some questions about the new Terminal Services features, I didn’t get , so I have to work on that. And 1 question about ip v6, I guessed. Thats something i really have to look into.
Thats 1 down, 2 to go to become a enterprise administrator 2008.
Some times I check if my applications are still using the proper application pools (I am not the only administrator of the IIS servers 😉 ). You can do this with the IIS GUI ofcourse but you can also use scripting (checking a lot of servers/application and application pools can be a pain in the !@#$%). So I created a little script to do that. Continue reading “Wanna know which application pool is used by your application?”
