  • Does the Cloud fail?

    For my employer, I do a LOT of Active Directory (AD) Health Checks. One of the things I look for are User Settings in the Default Domain Policy. Why? Because Microsoft says only four groups of settings should be configured in the Default Domain Policy. No User Settings are on that list. The User Settings I see in almost every Defaul […]
