In this tutorial I’ll guide you in securing your management page. The goal of the tut. is making sure the NetScaler Management Page is SSL encrypted and AD Integrated. Meaning you’re able to login with your Active Directory admin account. Let’s go!

At the moment I’m preparing for my CCE exam and one of the things I like to do is perform several setups. For this tutorial I implemented a XenDesktop & XenApp 7.5 server. A StoreFront server and a virtual NetScaler with a developer license. I already have in place a CA for my self signed certs, the domain joined machines automatically trust the Root CA cert and a Domain Controller is in place.

The goal of the tutorial is to get the StoreFront websites running on SSL. The XML traffic should be encrypted and the NetScaler has to connect to the StoreFront servers through SSL. Let’s start!

So at the moment we’re completing a project that included migrating an existing Microsoft Sharepoint Project Server environment implementation to a different server environment with a different URL. Our goal was to get rid of the /pwa part and create an http://projects.domain.local/businessunit URL. We have read a lot about this on the internet. A lot of peope saying it’s not advised to do so, it cannot be done etc. etc. No straightforward manual how to accomplish this. Even our consulting partner said it couldn’t be done.

So in this article I’m writing how it can be done and which errors we faced. You do need Sharepoint and Project Server knowledge cause I will not include screenshots etc. If you start using this article I’m assuming you have the knowledge to create a content database and add a managed path.

At this moment I’m attending a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system admin training which I must say is very interesting. I’ve always been interested in Linux but as a Windows minded admin never took the time to really learn it up until now. And I must say: LINUX ROCKS. In the past I ran into some hard-to-troubleshoot problems with Linux based systems and it’s nice to realize that things are now getting clearer. So I tought it would be a good idea to write a few tutorials for my blog, starting with the basics. How to install a CentOS (which is exactely the same as Red Hat Enterprise (only it lacks the enterprise support)) webserver which you can then use to host apps (like SickBeard/CouchPotato/Headphones/maybe some nzb-indexers (I’m full of ideas!!). I even took the time to take a lot of screenshots. So let’s start!
