I am trying to work my way through the tricky world of Azure and AD connect. In short I have a central sites with a domain, I have multiple smaller sites with just a few machines. I want to join those machines also to the domain. I was thinking rather than trying to join the machines over a VPN to the domain could I simply create a member server in azure which would allow for the smaller sites to connect directly? Is this even possible

Hi Experts,

I can connect to my windows 2016 core server using server manager, run "computer management" , and look at a number of things but when I try to connect to disk  management I get the "RPC server is unavailable".
This service is running on both the server and the client. I have disabled all Firewall services on the windows 2016 server and used Netsh Advfirewall to allow remote management.
What am I missing here ?

I am trying to deploy Intune to all the computers in my company.  Unfortunately, MS requires the user to be a local admin to join Intune.  These are all AD Domain Joined.  I am looking for a way to give the logged in user local admin rights, have them connect to Intune with their username and password and then remove them from the local admin group.  So far I have this for my script:

Net localgroup administrators “domain\%username%” /add
Start ms-device-enrollment:?mode=mdm
Timeout 300
Net localgroup administrators “domain\%username%” /delete

It works fine if a domain admin right clicks and runs the batch file as administrator.  I would like it run as a logon script one time.  I also tried to copy the file to common startup folder so it would run at logon, but get access denied on the first line.  The rest of the script runs without error.  Has anyone had success joining computers to Intune without manually making users local admins?

Greetings,

I have one question regarding Windows Server licencing and I do not understand that part.
I am using Windows Server 2016.

I have a licence where said Windows Server 2016 / 10 cores per server. What does that mean in practical explanation?

Next, I have CAL fpr win2016 serv = 25 CALs - that means I can add 25 machines/ users to Active Directory and they can access server, or I can use the same licence key for 25 devices, including client and server machines?

Thank you

Hi
 have a collection of 12K photos of people (pass type) and I need to try to detect frauds, for example, a person who registered two more times.so I have to show an example photography and know if in the images of my collection there are similar images, one thing that comes directly from the microsoft API:


Face - Find Similar

Given query face's faceId, to search the similar-looking faces from a faceId array or a faceListId. faceId array contains the faces created by Face - Detect, which will expire 24 hours after creation. While "faceListId" is created by Face List - Create a Face List containing persistedFaceIds that will not expire. Depending on the input the returned similar faces list contains faceIds or persistedFaceIds ranked by similarity.

But I do no know how to invoke it.
Can anyone help?

I am setting up windows server 2016 for the first time and wanted to know if I wanted to setup additional server AD, hyper-v, other servers to add to a domain etc, would I need to have a separate server for each (physical) or create them as I've seen in videos after installing the initial windows server 2016?

This is for a home production environment?

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to do a Failback from ASR for a few of my servers but lost the "process server" I used to have on premise. How do I failback without it or do I first recreate a new "process server"?

I need to create a script to spin up an Domain Controller (RODC and Writable) from the script in the event of the emergency.  In case the DC  tanks Admins should be able easily spin up a replacement using a script.  This would eliminate a human errors and increase a recovery speed.
Can someone point me to the right direction, how its being done and experiences.
Thanks in advance!

We have two users with following licenses:
Test.User1@abc.com (E3)
Test.User2@abc.com (Kiosk)

We want to add "Test.User2@abc.com (Kiosk)" as delegated full access mailbox in "Test.User1@abc.com (E3)".

On AD Connect / AD Azure local server we used below mentioned command to allow access.
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity Test.User2@abc.com -User Test.User1@abc.com -AccessRights FullAccess

Issues:
1. We need to add delegated mailbox manually (not configure automatically in Outlook 2016).
2. We try to click on delegated mailbox, outlook hanged and showing following error (The set of folders cannot be opened. The file :\users\Test.User1\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Test.User1@abc.com.ost is in use and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file. You might need to restart your computer.)

Counter Measures:
1. We reconfigured "Test.User1@abc.com" profile after deletion of its .OST, but issue remain same.
2. We opened ticket on Microsoft they failed to resolve this issue, and ask me reinstall Office 2016 by downloading fresh media from their site.

Remember, same delegation properly worked on Exchange on-line portal means on web access.

I am trying to build a storage spaces direct failover cluster with intel DC P3600 AIC cards.  Windows server 2016 install sees the card but won't let me install on them even with the driver.  I think is due to the BIOS being legacy and not uefi. The cards work and can be accessed if I boot off a regular drive but not the card.  Any ideas.

Hello,

I'm setting up a test RDS server in our environment for testing before I deploy one in production. I would like to create a GPO for the start menu and all the guides I've read reference the "Export-SatrtLayout" cmdlet in powershell. Every time I run the command I get a COM error. I'm running powershell with elevated permissions but still no luck. It does create the xml file but the file is defiantly not complete.

Hi,
 I would like to create a  Windows 2016 remote desktop server as a virtual machine running on Windows Hyper-V Server 2012.
 The machine will join the domain a member server with other servers

It seems that Windows 2016 Server Essential Edition would be the cheapest way to do it because it does not require Windows Client Access Licenses.  

I am wary of low level restricted Small Business type licenses. What is your experience using

a) Windows 2016 Server Essential Edition as  Virtual Machine?
 
b)  Windows 2016 Server Essential Edition Remote Desktop Server  as Virtual Machine
