The upcoming version of Windows will contain a feature that helps users to troubleshoot their networks. The application, previewed at WinHEC, gives a graphical presentation of your network and will indicate any problems (see picture below). The official name for this is Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD).
Many users will find LLTD a useful technology, but it's also sad that we need it to administer our networks. Acutually, that we need to adminster out networks to begin with.
This isn't something that we can blame on Microsoft, but instead of LLTD, wouldn't users prefer to see that their networks just worked?
