In addition to identity management consulting, our company provides outsourcing of Identity Management solutions to our clients. In some cases the client continues to operate their own Active Directory environment. But sometimes the client doesn’t pay attention to our instructions about AD maintenance leading to issues. To help solve this problem, we have crafted a little solution which will notify us automagically by eMail whenever a new domain controller appears on the network.

HowTo: Execute Workflow Activities with Custom Delays in User Application
