7. Awesome off-site backup

Backups: Well know we need them and most of use at least one of the available ways to backup. If we don't, we'd be well served to ponder something Mike Prestwood recently said:

"There are two kinds of people; those that back up - and those that will."

In this article I'd like to show you an off-line backup solution that is so simple to set up and use that you'll never again have an excuse for not backing up important work.

12. Converting from a Workgroup to a Domain

For a particular user on a particular computer, all programs installed for all users will still be available whether they log into their computer or the domain. You will have to migrate all other user specific settings either manually or use an automated tool.

Both of which are incomplete so expect to have to manually migrate some application specific settings and data for each user. At a minimum, log into the old local account and migrate My Documents, Desktop, Favorites, and perhaps e-mail such as the Outlook .PST or Outlook Express .DBX files.

22. MS DHCP Preferred Over SOHO Devices

It is better to install a Microsoft DHCP server in your business network over the more limited DHCP servers provided by SOHO devices such as those found in wireless routers, firewalls, the Comcast router, etc. Installing a Microsoft DHCP server allows you to take advantage of more advanced features.

41. Wells Fargo Advisers Financial Network

When setting up remote access for clients in the Wells Fargo Advisers Financial Network , There are prerequisites that must be approved by Wells Fargo.  

Example:  Setting up exchange email address on an iPad.  The client must contact Wells Fargo to "request"  an "iPad account" and to be set-up on their "MDM server"  This is done by the client.  We can facilitate this, but the client must be present to authenticate.   More notes to follow.

42. Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)

Microsoft's implementation of NetBIOS Name Service (NBNS), a name server and service for NetBIOS computer names. Just as DNS serves up domain names, WINS serves up NetBios names and is particularly useful within a Microsoft-based network when or without the NetBIOS protocol installed. Use of WINS will decrease broadcast traffic.
