Active Directory Telephone Book, or ADTB in short is a small and smart windows forms program that allows you to quickly find persons within your organization. Do phonetic searches, or find people based on their location, department or telephone number. Help the people in your organization find each other!
When started the first time ADTB scans your active directory for telephone numbers, names, email addresses etc. Depending on the size of your organization’s active directory this can take up a few minutes. These results are packed and encrypted into the user’s ‘application data’. This means, the second time the user launches ADTB it starts up very quickly.
Used in free mode ADTB has two limitations: some times a dialogbox will appear and you cannot customize the title bar.
-Reads from directly from Active Directory
-Allows users to edit their own information (admin controlled)
-No need to maintain a seperate telephonebook
-Lightning fast searches
-Find as you type, once your search is unique you can stop typing
-No webserver required
-Phonetic matches (when searching for ‘Jon, ‘John’ is also suggested)
-Cached data, quick start up time
-Perfect for company laptops (which are not always on the network)
-Smart export features (clipboard,CSV)
-Multi language; English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese
-Quickly send a mail using standard mail client like outlook or outlook express.
-Drag and drop support
-Supports multiple domains in your forest/trusts
Farm Commander is a great success!
Farm Commander is out almost a year now, and Gourami is happy to see that almost 10.000 people had registered it. A far greater number has downloaded it. Many very big names like USA government and of course many big IT companies. We also want urge everyone who uses Farm Commander to send us feedback via the forums!
Kicking off a global launch consisting of more than 150 developer-focused events, Microsoft Corp. announced the general availability of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. The company also announced that Silverlight 4 will release to Web (RTW) later in the week. Together, these technologies simplify the entire development process, enabling developers to target new platforms and build high-quality applications. Developers will be able to download Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 in conjunction with the Microsoft Visual Studio Conference & Expo launch event in Las Vegas.
The new version of farm commander passed all quality tests for Windows 7.
This mean we are now officially 'compatible with windows 7'.
Both scenario’s were tested: running farm commander on a windows 7 client. And manipulating file systems on a windows 7 computer remotely. As expected Farm Commander passed all tests.
Since Gourami recently took Farm Commander out of BETA, many new people and companies downloaded Farm Commander.
This led to a storm of positive comments. Many people also had ideas on new features. This led to 3 new powerful new features:
Compare file systems
Ever had two (on paper) ‘identical Citrix servers’, but on one of these servers you can’t get this application to run? Farm Commander now makes it possible to compare the file systems of two servers. A truly unique feature, which no other tool has. Once the two servers are scanned there is a possibility to apply an include/exclude filter. This enables you to skip ‘documents and settings’ for example. Or to only compare .exe files.
Compare installed software
One of the golden rules for proper XenApp management is to keep your servers identical. This seems like an easy task, especially with tools like Installation Manager, Altiris and Wisdom. Experienced administrators know better. It always grows apart. With Farm Commander you get a nice overview of what software is installed on what server. This will enable you to find differences between servers/computers very quickly. This overview can also be exported to CSV for use in excel for example.
A common task for Citrix administrators is rebooting the servers. In previous versions of Farm Commander you had to execute a remote task: shutdown –r. Many people complained about the lack of feedback during this process. This is why we created the Reboot manager. Selected servers will be rebooted/shutdown and Reboot manager keeps track of the outcome. If the servers are really shutdown/come back up.
Download Farm Commander version 1.4.36
As of March 2010 the price of the FASe suite is going to rice to 200,00 euro for a Farm License. Thats roughly 260,00 US dollar.
If you were planning to buy a license, we advise you to do so before March. Previously we offered the FASe administration suite below cost price to gain popularity. The discount model remains the same; if you buy 4 licenses you get the 5th for free.

Farm Commander remains free for 2010, only registration is required.
