IT Pro Tuesday #11

IT Pro Community, Slack Channel, Tip & More

Get this in your inbox each week.

Hello IT Pro,

This was one busy week, planning new services to include in our Free MailFlow Monitor platform. We asked Reddit for help and got a fantastic response. Let me know in the comments if you have any more ideas.

Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Tip

Quickly Find a MAC Address

Rather than going through network dialog windows or scrolling through long lists via ipconfig, simply open up a command prompt and type getmac. It’s quick, and easy, especially if you have multiple NIC interfaces.

A Free Tool

ADModify.NET is a tool primarily utilized by Exchange and Active Directory administrators to facilitate bulk user attribute modifications.

An IT Pro Community

4sysops is an online community for IT professionals. “In our weblog, experienced IT pros cover the latest technologies in system administration, cloud computing and DevOps. On our news page, you’ll find updates about new developments in IT, in the wiki users can share their IT know-how, and in the forum, members can ask IT administration questions or discuss the latest hot IT topics. The most active members are rewarded with a monthly bonus.”

A Slack Channel

PowerShell Slack. “We have had a Virtual User Group on FreeNode IRC since before PowerShell was generally available, and we added a PowerShell Slack chapter years ago. Join the thousands of members getting real-time assistance!”

An IT Pro Quote

“It’s easy to forget that the ultimate goal of systems administration is to make systems, applications and services available to people who use them to get their jobs done. A good systems administrator must be able to communicate and get along well with others” Taken from an article I was reading this week.

Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments or suggestions .
