About Show #599
Ready for a chuckle? Richard chats with Mike O'Neill about a number of stories from his work as a Premier Field Engineer for Microsoft. While it's best to always be kind, some of these mistakes, especially the security ones, are shocking... Mike talks about offices where everyone was a domain administrator (including every ex-employee too!), keeping passwords secure in paper envelopes, and many more. You can't know everything, but if these stories are any indication, it's still worthwhile to ask and know more!
Mike endeavors to empower engineers as much as possible with sharing of information and overall IT knowledge. He is currently a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer (PFE) focusing on Exchange and Active Directory. With ongoing delivers of Active Directory and Exchange Risk Assessment Programs, and Exchange workshops including: Exchange PowerShell, Administration and troubleshooting, Migration courses, and the O365: Exchange Administration and Configuration course. He is continually looking for new methods to help improve IT engineer’s efficiency and knowledge about Exchange and AD. Mike is also a contributing editor to the Exchange Team Blog site (eHelo) http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/ and occasional posts to his general TechNet blog http://blogs.technet.com/b/mconeill/
