About the Site

This site is a collection of some of the things that I’m working on put in “How To” format to possibly assist others. In reality, most of the posted items here are an attempt to document things I’ve already done some time ago and might need to do again in the future. Most of what you find on this site will be technology related. I believe strongly that what makes a good IT person is the ability to find the right tool for a situation. Therefore you have to know what your tools are and unobjectively gauge their value for any given job. Windows vs. Linux, VMware vs. VirtualBox, IE vs. Firefox…. you will never see any of that at my site as I use them all! My articles may be more veered towards one technology or another simply based on what I feel I need to document at the moment.

        I need no particular feed. I am not only interested in PowerShell I am interested in IT and different thoughts. Start to offer a feed is better then no feed šŸ˜‰

    Dear Sir,

    I want my file server path which is mapped for all users in ad. I want to check folder size, Last modified date and time by which user. Can you please help me in this.

      To get the user who last modified a file you are looking at file level system auditing which is outside the range of this script (by a large measure).

    Thanks for sharing your experience on these issues. I am a Python guy with minimal network admin experience that needs to gather stats for downloaded files from our remote servers. After poking around a bit I found Shinkin as a potential vehicle for data gathering. I currently have a Python utility using wget on Windows to retrieve files, and I now need to know who gets which file when. Do you recommend any alternative methods?

      Jim, I think what you are asking for is more of defining a process than any specific technology. I suppose you may get some use out of a workflow management solution in this scenario but I’ve no specific recommendation on one unfortunantely.
