I reinstalled SQL 2012 and SSMS 2017 (latest version).
When trying to deploy my local DB to Azure I get this error (Attached).

I had another computer with the same config and I was able to deploy. I must be missing some component.
I have Visual Studio 2017 Community also installed.

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

I have Database.mdb which is a 570 meg file on a Windows Server 2016 shared directory.  

When I drag it to  \\CPUDesk c: drive it takes 10 seconds.  This is a $400 windows 7 proiDell Inspiron 620 desktop that is 6 years old.

When I drag it to a \\CPULap c: drive it takes 50 seconds.  That is a brand new $700 windows 10 pro Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with a fast i7 chip and 8gig memory and a super fast SSD SanDisk x400.

I am shocked that an old cheap desktop is so much faster than the latest technology laptop.

At first I thought it might be a bad Cat 5 cable or switch port, so I swapped the laptop and the desktop and reran the test with the same result.

CPULap has a 1000 gig NIC which is confirmed because the network switch shows two green LEDs.  

Does anybody have any ideas of how I can trouble shoot this?  

rberke.

P.S.  At the risk of giving "Too Much Information", here are some additional facts, to muddle the picture.


I tested the copy on other cpus
*1 year old windows 10 pro laptop ($1300 quad core Lenovo t460p) also took 50 seconds.
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 5 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 4 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 50 seconds


* 2 month old windows 2016 server took 1 second (no surprise, because that copy didn't even go through the switch.)

recently an HP Proliant /w Server 2016 Essentials reboots 2-5 times a day. I am getting a Event 41 error. I have changed out the Memory hoping that was the issue. It was not the problem. No new hardware has been installed prior to the issue.  Any help on where to start looking would be great.

I am having problems with a new Windows Server 2016 VM.  This server is a print/internal web server.  I have webroot installed on this computer and I also noticed Windows Defender is also active as well.  I have noticed several things that are odd.  For instance, I have an hosted app on this machine that will launch but immediately closes after entering the username and password.  However, on the same machine I installed Firefox and it works fine.  The software provider for this app indicates a 405 error is occurring with IE.  I have the app defined as a trusted site too.  So for now I am using Firefox to logon to the app for now.

We also use Quorum OnQ to backup our hosts.  Since this server has 1.5 million files it took a little while for the initial backup which is normal.  However, performing following backups takes 5 to 6 hours because it has to scan each file to see if changes were made to back them up or not.  So, I enabled QFiltering for this server since this feature will build a database of all the files so that it does not need to scan all files.  Once I enabled QFilter, Windows will not allow the QFilter service to start (Event ID 7000, Service Control Manager with error:  Windows cannot verify the digital signature of this file...  Also, the Qfilter service uses SquirtCopy.

So in order to get a backup of this critical server, I disabled Qfilter and the backup ran last night.  It took about 6 hours to complete.  Early this morning around 5:40am I remotely …

We have a new RDS environment built on server 2016.  We are using it to publish one app.

When users log in and launch the app, they are able to save to the server.  I need to stop that.  

I need my RDS users to ONLY be able to save to their local PC.  It would be ideal for them to NOT even see the local server options and the library options, but I'll settle for users not being able to save to the server and only be able to save to their PC.

Thanks.

When installing Windows 10, you can join the computer to Azure AAD with the builtin functionality.
Is it possible to apply GPO's to these computers without having to use Intune or an on-premise AD controller ?
What about an Azure AD, connected to AAD... kan that handle GPO's to these computers ?
Or does the AD and computers have to be local ?

Hello Experts,

I have followed the process from the following link to generate a flat file
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/v1/data-factory-load-sql-data-warehouse

Instead of using the command Dbgen -s 1000 -S **1** -C 10 -T L -v, I used the command dbgen -s 1, to enerate the database population for the qualification database, as described at the following link

https://github.com/Azure/Azure-DataFactory/tree/master/Samples/TPCHTools

However, I'm not sure where to look on my PC for the generated file

Can someone let me know where I might find the file?

Cheers

...how can I get my Azure FunctionApp to utilize this module or otherwise communicate with my SFTP server?

Hello,

i was wondering is someone has any info if this is possible, without first joining Win 7 machine to local domain.
Workplace Join app requires that Win 7 is joined to local domain to be able to join that machine to Azure AD.

So, can Win 7, which is in Workgroup be joined to Azure AD?

PS> Just to be clear when i say Azure AD, I am not talking about VM in Azure running ADDS or something like that, but just simple Azure AD.

Regards,
Ivan.

We have a local non-routable domain mycompany.local environment and all the AD users has additional mycompany.com.au suffix. AD Sync with Office365 is working via Azure AD connector currently.
We own the mycompany.com.au domain. I am planning to user adfs.mycompany.com.au as Federation Service Name
Is there any step by step guide for this scenario? I couldn't find much around the internet.

I have few questions that I couldn't find the answer yet.

Q1. Can I install ADFS on the non-routable server ADFS01.mycompany.local?  if yes, what would be necessary steps to follow?
Q2. Can I install Web Application proxy on the non-routable server ADFS02.mycompany.local and use port forwarding to route traffic from adfs.mycompany.com.au to internal IP address of ADFS02.mycompany.local?
Q3. Can I use domain CA to generate the certification for ADFS to use?  Do I just put both adfs.mycompany.com.au and ADFS01.mycompany.local on the certification?

Any recommendation would be much appreciated.

Hi

We are planning to setup a complete new domain enviroment and had a On-Premises 2016 DC. For 365 services we plan to use M365 (not o365). WLAN and Hardware VPN Firewall authentication should come from On-Premises 2016 DC (AD-integrated) and usually this has worked fine for us.

Now since M365 is relative new product I wonder is there some problems lurking behind the corner due to M365? For example we noticed this from M365 FAQ:

"Customers that wish to experience the complete capabilities of Microsoft 365 Business must be running Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 Pro2 on their existing desktops. Customers who use on-premises Active Directory to enable login to PCs will switch devices over cloud identity and management as part of their deployment. Existing Windows 10 Pro PCs should be running Creators Update if they have not already done so"

Frankly I don't understand what this means. Can you please explain is this a consern and further more is our scneario bad?

Good Morning Experts,

We have built a new RDS server in Azure.  We would like to properly license it to allow more than 2 users to connect to it at the same time.  We will eventually need to add more users and possibly turn it into a farm.

We have already purchased 40 Cals for our environment but I am reading that we need SALs to allow the users to connect.

Can anyone provide some insight and/or pricing or where to go to get it for what we need?

I do have a open ticket with Azure because I found on google that you can order or soon will be able to order then through the portal but I cannot confirm if this is possible as of yet.  I do not see that option in my portal.

Thank you,

Karen

We have installed two 2016 Essentials servers as a VM to VMware host using the same serial/license number. The DC works just fine but the other one seems to have a "The Non-domain Member Check " problem.

What can we do to solve this forced weekly boot?

The problematic server has these messages at the event viewer:

I have configured Azure AD Connect with my ADFS farm. The Exchange is configured as hybrid.

step 1:  I have Opened a office 365 login page.

step 2: Then enter the federated domain user, office 365 redirects to ADFS page.

step3: as soon as I enter the credentials of user ADFS redirected again to office 365 login page.

After it should login me to office 365 but it shows again credentials page and due to this problem I am not able to login office 365.

Can you please guide me how I can resolve thsi case?

We are deploying Web application proxy server in AD FS environment. We will use this ADFS to configure Azure AD Connect for Exchange Hybrid Environment.
