Creating an ISO file

Working in the virtual world its often easier to just create an iso file to move data/tools/etc. to the VM's, but Windows 7 can only burn iso files, not create them. (Windows 8 can mount them to)

Most free programs have the possibility to either burn or mount them, again not create.
Programs that can create ISO files are often complex and/or not free.

So today I just installed a cd burner program that I haven't used for years, but its free and small (4-5 Mb). And to my pleasent surpise its have the choice to save as ISO file. Nice :-)

Controlling your group policies with Wmi filters

The possibility to control group policies with wmi filers have been around for quite a while, but still I see companies doing weird stuff with logon script instead of using it. In fact most companies I am visiting don’t know how to use it, and therefor they don’t. And in many cases running group policies that are not intended for the computer can create serious problems.Instead of using wmi filters and script you might of course create an OU design that will help you, but even then it will be cases with policies running on computers it should not have been applied to or not running on all computers its intended to. For example if somebody creates a new forest wide group policy adjusting the firewall rules, intended for all Windows client. You might not want that policy implemented on your server. Using a security group for filtering might prevent it from running on the servers but it might also cause all new clients to not run it, since they need to be put into the right security grou…
