Hello, vBrisket Community!  Join us for the 2017 Summer MeatUp on Thursday, July 13th as we are delighted to have Paul Braren join us to discuss home labs.  Paul will even be including a live demo of some very interesting technologies.

DirSync to Azure Active Directory Connect Migration

Happy New Year vBrisketeers!  I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
