Accessing Drive Shares in Vista

October 4, 2008 at 2:37 pm (Vista)

With Vista you can no longer access the default drive shares ex: C$ (or any other administrattive shares for that matter) by default anymore.

Fine, I can accept that, but it should have been clearer on how to re-enable it for those that want/need it, but I digress.

Anyway, I finally decided to look into some more and found the following KB article that explains how to re-enable it.

Hope this helps

Perfmon for WCF Services on IIS7

October 1, 2008 at 9:12 pm (WCF)

If you are running benchmarks with perfmon in Windows 2008 64-bit you can no longer user the ASP.NET and ASP.NET Application of perfmon is your application is in 32-bit mode.

As a better alternative anyway, is to use the new ServiceModel perfmon. You need to add the diagnostics section in the web.config like this:

<system.serviceModel>
    <diagnostics performanceCounters="All" />
</system.serviceModel>  

Then you will have access to metrics for each operation(method) in each endpoint in the ServiceModel* categories of perfmon. Really nice!
