mom/sms: a couple of interesting articles...

i thought i'd point out a couple of interesting articles since the problem seems to surface on some of the listmail subscriptions i'm a part of. the first one is the neverending question... why do the active directory and exchange helper objects get installed on machines that aren't domain controllers or exchange servers? it's simple. the push installation does it automatically. here's the article that goes into detail about the asinine method to avoid this (manual installations or remove through arp). i included this one because it was something one of my coworkers discovered with microsoft (russ slaten to be exact). he's published a blog entry on it. here's the official article, however. basically it details how to get around (scripted or otherwise) the problem when you try to import a report, and it mercilessly tacks your cpu. basically the import object wizard can't handle large sql queries. :)
