Today our Exchange 2003 Server of the College O.L.V. van Deinsbeke in Zottegem (Belgium) is up-and-running for 60 days. In fact, the last downtime was because there was a power failure in the serverroom. The server is up-and-running since september last year running Windows Server 2003, Exchange 2003, SQL 2000, IIS 6.0, ASP.NET and Windows SharePoint Service. Let's try to double this uptime :-) Oh yes, last remark, the servers in that particular school have funny names: nero (the internet connection server), plato (the file server), einstein (the domain controller) and socrates (mail- and webserver).Del.icio.us | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks

I just upgraded the blogs.bartdesmet.net website with the latest release of DotText. There were a few issues to get the thing to work:

  • You should map the .* extension to the ISAPI of ASP.NET in the IIS configuration to support multiple blogs on your machine ("community" mode)
  • Backup the old site!!!
  • Copy the new bits of v0.95 to the web folder
  • Update web.config (blog.config has gone) and make sure the HTTP Handlers are correct!!! (http://dottextwiki.scottwater.com/default.aspx/Dottext.MultipleBlogRegex)

Enjoy it!

Today one of our new team members on the Microsoft SchoolServer project at Microsoft Belux started to develop the ASP.NET driven management tools. Welcome Gill! A few weeks ago another member, Geoffrey, joined the club. He'll be responsible for the infrastructure part of the solution. Welcome too, Geoffrey! I believe the SchoolServer software will be a great tool to help the network administrators in schools (most of them being 'simple teachers') to manage an infrastructure built on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and older client-systems therefore giving those people more time for the tasks their supposed to do (teaching courses).Del.icio.us | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks
