/A(ll partitions)P(ush)e(nterprise-all sites)d(istinguished name)

About the Author:

I am passionate about Systems Administration. I like to face new challenges and test new environments.Windows and Linux Debian boxes (both physical and virtual) are my favourites. I like solving problems related to Windows Server roles and services as well as Linux but some distributions in particular. I'm not considering myself as Linux master but surely, I always do my best to fit the needs. On the other hand I consider myself as a Windows Server Professional and in terms of WS and Windows Desktops I always follow best practices, good advices and opinions from other admins.
