From MS Technet Gallery to Github

As Microsoft TechNet is about to be deprecated (june 2020), I’ve completed the move of my documents and scripts gallery to Github.

Major advantage is that Github can be managed from a desktop client….

You’ll find some (35+) interesting links and downloads of

  • various powershell scripts to manage
    • AD
    • Microsoft Identity manager (FIM & MIM)
    • HTML
    • Technet Wiki
  • sql scripts
  • Word templates
  • XLS templates and tools

Visio – PDCA cycle graphics (EN, FR, NL)

This visio has a editable version of the PDCA cycle hosted on Wiki pedia as image.

Quoted from source:

PDCA (plan–do–check–act or plan–do–check–adjust) is an iterative four-step management method used in business for the control and continuous improvement of processes and products.[1] It is also known as the Deming circle/cycle/wheel, the Shewhart cycle, the control circle/cycle, or plan–do–study–act (PDSA). Another version of this PDCA cycle is OPDCA.[2] The added “O” stands for observation or as some versions say: “Observe the current condition.” This emphasis on observation and current condition has currency with the literature on lean manufacturing and the Toyota Production System.[3] The PDCA cycle, with Ishikawa’s changes, can be traced back to S. Mizuno of the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1959.[4]

Note-to-self: #MIM2016 & #FIM2010 Config documenter released on GitHub

Source: Announcement on MIM 2016 Group on LinkedIn by  Jef Kazimer

Source Code: https://github.com/Microsoft/MIMConfigDocumenter

Jef announced that the Identity Community Projects team has published the MIM Config Documenter tool to the Microsoft GitHub Organization as an open source community project.

The MIM configuration documenter is a very nice and easy tool to generate documentation of a MIM / FIM synchronization or service installation.

It allows to: 

  • Document deployment configuration details for the MIM / FIM solution, including MIMWAL Workflow definitions
  • Track any configuration changes you have made since a specific baseline
  • Build confidence in getting things right when making changes to the deployed solution

You can find the project code, releases, and documentation at https://github.com/Microsoft/MIMConfigDocumenter
