    @ronnie-wong said in Creating an Internal Subdomain using your external .com domain name:

    70-346

    You were of course correct - the specific URL for the episode is [https://itpro.tv/course-library/office-365-2017/prepare-ad-synchronizationo365/](link url)

    I've already synced, maybe creating a new AD with the right name would be cleaner - this domain has existed since NT4 - time to freshen it up. SSO is the only think I was trying to accomplish with sync. i.e. Use thier Email address to sign on to the local domain AD. I'll miss using the phone app to reset passwords though.

    Where in the vids can I find where to create a local AD domain as a subdomain of the .public COM domain?
    I see that is is now considered best practice to create your local domains like this especially when you have a O365 account.

    I have a small group of machines at a non profit that, because of the great pricing non profits get for MS software, I can have a local AD domain for easier management. I volunteer and try to automate all I can.

    There is an AD Domain there now (.local) and that means 2 logins, one for o365 email and one for local machines, I would like those logons to be the same using the email address of the user to logon to the local machine and still be part of the local AD. I read that "Internal Subdomain" is the way to do that. Has than been demonstrated in any video?

    Thanks for the reply, there is no "requirement" to complete the query in any time frame, it runs in the middle of the night. But when troubleshooting, that long delay is a real pain to wait for and made me wonder about indexes. Glad to know I was correct in my observation, sad that there is no way to speed this up. Alas I'm hourly so I got that going for me.... :)

    The SQL system I admin is for a lab and has only one user (or SSRS automation) querying at a time. Its updated continuously by an application via ODBC.

    SO, when creating an index on a table, Don stated that the index gets updated whenever the indexed column is updated
    .
    Tell me if I have this right then.

    I have ~100 "ItemID" fields, I am collecting a data value every 5 minutes for each of these ItemID's.
    At the end of the month I query against only one of these ItemID's selecting all the values that are between a certain range. The result gives me a timestamp for all the values and using SSRS I create a trend and reports for this data.

    There are no indexes at this time.

    Since I only run this query once a month, even though the query takes several minutes to run, creating an index for ItemID would not be a good idea as every 5 minutes the index would be updated. The Query might be faster but the continuous load on the CPU would not be a fair tradeoff?

    I get that each situation is unique and I would need to look at the system performance with the index created and not and look for a difference between the two options, but overall, is that what you were trying to convey?

    I started 70-410 on Roku and it starts with AD. The Video List here starts with installing. I would assume there is a specified order to the videos, what should I follow?

    Did I miss a link to a follow along study guide? The show notes might be what I'm looking for, but I can't find those either.

    IS the IP range 5.x.x.x a special address? I recall himachi used that range for its VPN as it was a "forbidden" ip address for some reason,

    Copy that, one last thing... the objectives for the MCSA, you mentioned them and refer to them often, are they posted somewhere too? I see the show notes appeared recently, a roadmap layout to the MCSA exam would help me a great deal. Something I can print and check off when I grasp it?
    BTW - Love this thing.

    I have asked that specific question before to others in the industry and have always, without fail, been given the less than helpful answer of, "if you don't know you need it (R2) then you don't".
    R2 was never framed as an update to standard like a Service pack would be, but rather additional features that you may or may not need. The link you gave doesn't clearly show the differences between them. Am I wrong, is R2 simply a later version? If so that doesn't follow the common naming convention MS uses.
    Is there a feature list with standard and R2 that clearly spells out the difference.
    I nitpick here because I just built up a new R2 server only to find that the app I built is for wont yet work with R2 yet will with standard. So there is something to it that it more than an update.
