The Windows Time Service Technical Reference was published on TechNet earlier this year and is accessible free of charge to all IT professionals interested in getting a deeper insight into W32Time. According to the Redmond company, the Windows Time Service Technical Reference offers info on W32Time for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, but also older releases of Windows, including Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003. A member of the Directory Services team explained that the Technical Reference offered through TechNet was designed to consolidate the information available on Windows Time (w32time) in all of the company’s operating systems.

“The Windows Time service, also known as W32Time, synchronizes the date and time for all computers running in an AD DS domain. Time synchronization is critical for the proper operation of many Windows services and line-of-business applications. More »

Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook, introduced at the start of the past week, manages to handicap the Redmond company’s email client, delivered as a part of the Office System. Essentially, the installation of Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook manages to kill the email client’s ability to search its own data. The tool from the Mountain View-based search giant is designed to bridge Outlook 2003 SP3 and 2007 SP2 (or SP1) with Google Apps. However, it appears that Google failed to perform sufficient testing of the utility, as Microsoft came across a bug that no longer allowed users of Outlook to search through their data.

“The installation of the Google Apps Sync plugin disables Outlook’s ability to search any and all of your Outlook data,” stated Dev Balasubramanian, Outlook product manager. “When a Google Apps user installs the sync plugin for Outlook, the plugin modifies a registry key which disables Windows Desktop Search from indexing and providing search functionality for all Outlook data, not just the Outlook data being synchronized from GMail. Because Outlook search relies upon the indexing performed by Windows Desktop Search, Outlook search functions are broken as a result.” More »
