Active Directory & O365 Planning During COVID-19



Quest Customer Testimonial

As a result of the current situation, what AD-related plans in your roadmap have been de-prioritized or re-prioritized?

We have postponed nearly all impactful changes to our AD environment including Domain Controller upgrades, as well as RADIUS server upgrades. Basically any change that could negatively affect VPN is on hold.

None – we have slowed down in most aspects, as we don’t have the staff to push forward on all fronts. We make progress where we can.
