  1. BUG: 2016 server allows you to create machines with same name

    I added a 2016DC to my 2012 and 2012r2 DCs a couple weeks ago.

    Today I added a new PC into the network.

    The problem is I used the same name as a PC already on the network (shouldn't be an issue Windows always catches this and doesn't allow it).

    AD didn't catch this and actually updated the original PC in AD and did not add a second PC or warn that the name was already in use. If I look at the modified date of the original pc in AD it shows it was modified at the same time…

  2. Join the Physical and Logical Layers

    Add the BIOS UUID as a property on AD computer objects. This will finally tie the Physical and Logical layers together once and for all.
