Manage Azure Policy using PowerShell

Par : Baki Onur Okutucu

Azure policies are becoming increasingly popular, as they provide a wide range of management capabilities over Azure resources. Not only do they allow us to enforce policy rules to control Azure resources, but they can also enable us to automatically evaluate compliance and remediate noncompliant resources. In this post, we will look at how to manage Azure Policy using PowerShell for common tasks, including creating policy definitions, managing policy assignments, and reporting compliance status.

Consolidating Group Policy, part 3: Loopback policy processing and folder redirection

Par : James Rankin

GPOZaurr and other tools help you with consolidation in the short-to-medium term, but as you move forward, there are other changes you can make that will make things much simpler and easier to manage. To make a significant difference to these user KPIs, there are two areas that must be concentrated on—folder redirection and loopback policy processing. This is my third post in my series about Group Policy consolidation.

Install a secondary domain controller using Install from Media (IFM)

Par : Brandon Lee

When a new domain controller (DC) is installed remotely, the initial replication traffic for synchronizing all directory objects can be significant. However, bandwidth can still be limited for businesses maintaining remote locations. Using the "install from media" (IFM) option significantly reduces the amount of data replicated after setting up a new DC.

Par : Wolfgang Sommergut

Chromium-based Edge has been part of Windows 10 since 20H2. Internet Explorer (IE) is still on board, but its support ends in June 2022. If you want to replace it with a managed Edge, you will have to deal with tasks such as configuring GPOs and updates or redirecting legacy websites to IE.

Create and update the Group Policy Central Store for ADMX templates

Par : Wolfgang Sommergut

Each Windows PC contains its own set of administrative templates for group policies. However, they can be better managed in a central location. This is all the more true when ADMX files are added for several applications. Updating templates in the Group Policy Central Store can be tricky, though.

How to migrate Active Directory Certificate Services to SHA-2 and Key Storage Provider

Par : Brandon Lee

Businesses need to migrate from the deprecated SHA-1 to SHA-2 to bolster their cybersecurity posture. They may still be running Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) using the SHA-1 cryptographic hash, along with the weaker Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP). In my previous post I discussed considerations when migrating AD certificate services to SHA-2. Let's look at how to replace them with SHA-2 and Key Storage Provider (KSP).

Migrating AD certificate services to SHA-2: Considerations and challenges

Par : Brandon Lee

Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) has been around since the mid-90s and is one of the leading cryptographic hash algorithms used to secure digital resources. The initial standard (SHA-1) has now been around long enough that hackers know its weak points and can exploit systems secured with this hash algorithm. Therefore, it is time for organizations to migrate away from SHA-1 in favor of SHA-2.
