The perfect excuse to buy an iPhone 4

No comments October 28th, 2010

Most of the phone calls the AD service desk receives are about user accounts that have been disabled or forgotten passwords.
This is a small task to handle if you have a task pad of ADUC in front of you.

It’s Saturday and you are watching a Tottenham game with a fellow Spurs fan at his place. You receive a call from your boss that has forgotten his AD password. He tells you reset his password *now*! 

Your friend doesn’t have an Internet connection, so you have to get down to the office to reset his bloody password. Arrrgg! 

I just bought an iPhone 4 and downloaded an app called “AD Helpdesk”. If you have one, you can watch the game and please your boss at the same time.

Setup a VPN connection on the phone to reach your internal network and start the App.

Search AD for his username and just reset his password from the app.
