Back to free tools;
GFI (www.gfi.com) produce a variety of products with 30-day demos that
are left with some fucntionality after that expires. 2 that are
invaluable are  GFI Security for Exchange/SMTP, which inlcuded free
Bitdefender AV - next time your MD says he wants an extra layer of AV
protection at no cost, stick this on. The other one is Network Security
Scanner. After the demo period, it won't distribute pathces, but *will*
tell you what's on the network, what ports are open, and what pathces
are missing. As a tool for a consulatant to get a basic state of play it
can't be beat.
And if you decide you want the non-free features I'm a reseller:).

Just did a search and found that it is indeed Monad.  At least this is
what I found...


"I noticed some mention of scripting and what is in store for scripting
in Longhorn, a new command shell called MSH (codenamed Monad)"=20

Well I guess we were drunk most of the time so that is why we cannot
recognize our own notes.
That is why I always bring a camcorder to the MVP Summit so I can sleep
and drink during the sessions. :-)

Michael, Have you looked at the MSH? If you like the command line (which
I
do) you should look at the MSH/Monad. Its all early mind you, but its
very cool

The majority of the things we end up needing to do require either files
to be copied, or registry entries to be changed.  I realize that most
sane people probably use policies for everything, we haven't used them
as much as we should have in the NT4 world.  So, we use the reg.exe
program, which allows you to make remote registry changes, along with
the for command (usually for /l or for /f) and it pushes a change out to
our 100 server farm in less than a minute.

I hope my response didn't come out wrong, but my point was that there is
still some decent power left in the old command line DOS tools that some
times get overlooked.=3D3D20

Teach them how to use reg.exe and a for loop at the command prompt.  We
get more done this way than anything.=3D3D20
