How do you know if one Group Policy Preference occurs before another?
Hi again everyone,
Today I'm sharing something that I have just found out about, thanks to the very helpful Alan Burchill (Twitter) who is a MVP in Group Policy. Thanks Alan!
So, I've talked about Group Policy Preferences before - wonderful, and not widely used enough yet - but they'll do pretty much anything you could do with a login script with the added benefits of high granularity, GUID and targeting based on almost any criteria you can think of rather than writing complex scripts and error reporting in event viewer.
I came into a scenario where I needed to delete all of the files in a directory, then copy several files back into that same directory. As I created this, I then wondered how I'd make sure that the delete occured before the copy. If it happened the other way around, the end result would be an empty directory!

Turn SCCM 2012 into the AV/malware hub for your entire environment with Forefront Endpoint Protection 2012.
Yay! Back to blogging, now that the Microsoft Schools Roadshow is all over, and the mayhem of moving house has been taken care of :-)

The other week I managed to scam myself an iPad 2 from work for a few days for a test run. I have always wondered weather I would use an iPad much, but before going out and dropping close to $1000AUD on one I figured a trail run for a few days would help me make up my mind.
To start I love the magnetic covers on the iPad 2. These covers are functional and stylish. The cover has groves which allow it to be bent to act as a stand propping the iPad at about a 30 degree angle. It is also used to put the device to sleep when folded over the screen. A really good idea in both senses. Lets get down to the device itself and really it’s just a big iPhone 4 in my book.
The apps in the Apple iStore are what sets it apart in the mobile landscape from Windows Phone, Android and Blackberry. Although these stores are catching up, the range of apps in the iStore is a ...
