HyperV 2012 - Corefig for Hyper-V 2012

As we know, server console for HyperV 2012 can be installed on windows 2012 or Windows 8.x.

Tutorial - RPC over http theory

RPC over HTTP (Remote Procedure Call over HTTP) is a protocol that allows a client on the Internet to connect securely to a Microsoft Exchange Server without having to log into a virtual private network (VPN) first.
RPC over HTTP uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as a transport protocol and mandates that the server authenticates itself to the client using a digital certificate and associated private key.  The protocol takes advantage of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) connectivity built into the Outlook Web Access (OWA), foregoing  requirements for an administrator to open additional ports on the corporate firewall

Exchange 2003/2010 - Add a photo to user contact


Exchange 2010 will allow photos directly, but the AD link still needs to be done using powershell and it is fastidious.

In this case  we need to make a small Schema extention (exchange 2010 SP1 do this procedure automatically

The bulk command is the following and here you can find relative screensho:

Import-RecipientDataProperty -Identity "Bharat Suneja" -Picture -FileData ([Byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path "C:\pictures\BharatSuneja.jpg" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0))

More details http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2010/03/10/3409495.aspx


Instead we can use a .dll supplied by Oli Dewdney which adds a ‘photo’ tab to the user properties in AD. Instructions are above.

Install on any computer that you want to use to manage AD.

to download a DLL file ADExt.dll download Here (Mirror Here).


AD Users and Computers Extension
By Oli Dewdney ojd-ad@dewdney.co.uk


copy the file to somewhere 'global'
use .Net's InstallUtil to register the DLL:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe adExt.dll

or the 64-bit version if your OS is 64-bit:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe adExt.dll

(you need permission to write to the directory where adext.dll is and to the registry HKLM\Software\microsoft\MMC)

use the /u flag to uninstall.

if the install fails with a could not load assembly error try running mmcperf.exe that will register the MMC assemblies in the GAC.


This extension adds two tabs to the User Property Sheet. One allows you to view/edit the EmployeeID and EmployeeNumber
AD fields and the other to edit/view the jpegPhoto and thumbnailPhoto fields.

When loading the thumbnailPhoto Field, the image is resampled down to  96 x 96, and the jpeg quality is chosen to have the size < 10KB

when loading the jpegPhoto the image jpeg quality is reduced to have the size < 100KB.

the fields are not editable if you dont have write access for the field.

Exchange 2003 non da la possibilita' di aggiungere le foto ai contatti, se invece utilizziamo questa .dll da registrarsi su un DC in modo da aggiungere un campo per mettere le foto la soluzione è utilizzare il seguente articolo:
