Another free book chapter on April 1st? No April Fooling!

BrentSheets Brent Sheets Profile: BrentSheets

You’ve probably had your leg pulled more times than you can count today, right? Yes, it is April 1st again (and I was sorely tempted to post an April Fools’ Day whopper here myself) but what I’m about to say is indeed the truth. We have another free book chapter for you!

We recently started a new blog to offer our readers a chance to download free chapters from some of the most popular enterprise IT and development books on the market. That’s right, it’s absolutely free and not an April Fools’ Day prank.

Each week, you’ll find a fresh chapter on the IT Bookworm Blog – along with a list of hand-selected IT resources to complement the topic of the chapter. Below are four chapters for your reading pleasure. So be sure to visit today and download your chapter.

Take care – and watch your back today!

This week’s IT Knowledge Exchange Blogger of the Week is John Policelli. John is a Microsoft MVP, and his blog covers Microsoft Directory Services. He is a published author on topics such as Active Directory, Windows Enterprise Server Administration and Windows Server.

John recently wrote about securing the Directory Services Restore Mode (DSRM):

This is not a post that describes how-to change the password on a DSRM account; there’s thousands of such articles on the web. This post aims to give you a thorough understanding of the risks associated with not properly securing DSRM accounts, the impact of exploited DSRM accounts, and my recommendations to secure DSRM accounts.

We’re happy to feature him as our Blogger of the Week!
