How to Share your Microsoft Certification Transcript

If you have done your Microsoft Certification exams, you will get a Microsoft Certification Transcript attached to your Microsoft Certification ID and account.

This Microsoft transcript is the official record of your exam and certification achievements. You can email yourself a copy of the transcript, share your transcript with your employer, friends, and colleagues, and download a copy.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: Cannot acces NetApp CIFS share

Windows 8 Logo

If you try to connect to a NetApp CIFS share via Windows 8 beta you may cannot access the share because of the following error:

SMB connections fail with error “Invalid Signature”


This behavior may be due to the “Secure Negotiate” feature added to SMB 2.24 for the Windows “8” beta release, which relies on the correct signing of error responses by all SMB 2 servers (including those supporting only protocol versions 2.0 and 2.1). Some third-party file servers do not respond with a signed error response causing the connection to fail.

Microsoft has two workrounds for this problem:

  • Enable signing on the third-party file server.
  • Disable “Secure Negotiate” on the client.

You can disable “Secure Negotiate” with the following PowerShell command:

Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force

Checkout the Microsoft KB2686098


Only some minutes after I released this blog post I got an anwser from Glenn Sizemore (NetApp) how you can enable SMB 2 signing on the NetApp.

Thanks for that.



I think this is not really new but it looks like a lot of people don’t know about the new service of Microsoft called Docs.com. Docs.com is a kind of a online Office Suite connected to Facebook.

docs.comYou can simple upload or create Microsoft Office files and share them with your Facebook friends. I think this is the first time Microsoft gets his Google Docs rival right. It’s very simple to use and you can login and share documents with something nearly every person has.
