One of the projects that I worked on was to create an internal web form application that is bound to Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement. The bind is with early bound classes that are generated by the Code Generation tool. During development, these classes are regenerated several times which can contain unnecessary entities that bloat the Visual Studio project. To solve this problem, I extended the Code Generation tool to filter out unnecessary entities.
Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement is a cloud-based Customer Relationship Management business solution that provides out-of-the-box features that help drive sales, productivity, and efficient organizational…
Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB) is a feature that distributes network traffic among multiple servers or virtual machines within a cluster to avoid overloading any one host and improve performance.
Network Load Balancing distributes IP traffic to multiple copies (or instances) of a TCP/IP service, such as a Web server, each running on a host within the cluster. Network Load Balancing transparently partitions the client requests among the hosts and lets the clients access the cluster using one or more “virtual” IP addresses. From the client’s point of view, the cluster appears to be a single server that answers these…
This article was created after I left a rogue DHCP server running and connected to the laboratory’s private network. As a result, other computers in the lab were getting non-routable IP addresses thus preventing them from connecting to the internet.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to a computer from a defined range of numbers (i.e., a scope) configured for a given network.
Unattended installation is an automated installation technology used to install or upgrade an operating system with minimal user intervention. Unattended installation is typically used during large-scale roll outs when it would be too slow and costly to have administrators or technicians interactively install the operating system on individual computers.
