I have supporting coputers since 1989, and officially transitioned into IT in 1996. I moved to server support 1n 1997 starting with NT Server 3.51, and Novell. I started working with Active Directory in early 2000 doing a migration from NT 4 to 2000 AD. I have been supporting Active Directory ever since, and have done a huge amount of automation using VB Script, and Visual Basic using every version since 4.0. I am now deeply entrenched in PowerShell, but still using the latest versions of VB.Net to do automation, as well as ASP.Net. My current role is in Server, and Active Directory Support. I work on global team supporting around 3000 servers across more than 150 countries, primarily using vmWare, and Windows Server 2008, moving towards Server 2012.
