cacls and subinacl

I am trying to work with cacls and got this error:

The data area passed to a system call is too small.

I saw a post that said to use subinacl instead. The syntax is different.

Also working on getting the SetACL command to work, so far I have it dumping the info.

Sorting IP addresses with Excel

What I did was paste the list of ip into A1, select that column and performed text to column, specificying a "." delimiter.
Then sort by a,b,c,d highest to lowest.

then in F or another column I put the following formula.

I had seen some other post which had more complex answers and thought this method was better.

Openssl convert from iis format to pem

openssl pkcs12 - in -out filename.pem -nodes

then to get the crt and the key open save multiple copies and remove the private key from the .crt and then remove the certificate for the .key file.

Username@Hostname /cygdrive/c/username/projects-reoccuring/check-ssl/ssl-certs
$ openssl pkcs12 -in iiscertexport.pfx -out filename.pem -nodes
Enter Import Password:
MAC verified OK

Username@Hostname /cygdrive/c/username/projects-reoccuring/check-ssl/ssl-certs
$ ls

AD - Group Policy Processing Speeds

Active Directory Group Policy
Hands down this is one of the biggest wins for Microsoft int he enterprise. Yes, I love Linux and am a big Linux fan, but this is something Microsoft got right. It wasn't great management in Windows 2000, but with the Group Policy Management Console that they released added a lot.

Here is an article from Mitch Tulloch that discusses Optimizing Group Policy Performance
