Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying and managing applications and services through datacenters. It provides both platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Cloud Services is a PaaS environment and can be used to create scalable applications and services; there are specific software development kits (SDKs) provided by Microsoft for Python, Java, Node.js and .NET. Azure also has file and storage services, data management, analytics and DNS services.

Just installed a Windows Server 2016 machine but I think I have a misplaced DNS entry as my workstations have to request a web page twice before it will resolve.  On initial visit to a page I get a page can't be displayed but if I attempt to go to the page a second time, it resolves and displays fine in the browser.

I added a forwarder to Google's DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) by using the properties of the domain node in the DNS console and adding the to the Forwarders tab.

This server also manages DHCP.

Should I have added the entries to a different location within the DNS settings or somewhere completely different?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Good day to one and All,

I am in the process of upgrading my DCs to Server 2016,  at the moment I have a few legacy systems remaining as Server 2003 for a while longer,  will this cause any problems if all the DCs become 2016?

Many thanks

Hello - will there be service packs for 2016, or will it be via the cumulative update (CU) model?

Thanks!

I have setup one new Widows Server 2016 with RD Connection Broker, RD Web Access RD Licensing and RD Session Host which behaves as I expect and allow multiple simultaneous user logons

I have added another Widows Server 2016 as an additional RD Session Host using the Remote Desktop Server Overview Add RD Session Host servers to my deployment and is listed in the deployed servers

However this additional RD Session Host only allows one user to log on at a time (behaves just like a Windows 10 PC)

I can't find what is preventing multiple simultaneous user logons

What have I got wrong?

We work with a vendor that requires us to use one of their certificates.  When we install it on out core 2016 server, the certificate is not used because "The CA root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the trusted root certificates store"  (But it actually is.)

One solution we have is to go into the local computer policy object (Server is in a workgroup) go into computer configuration/windows settings/public key policies and set the certificate path validation settings.  Since this is core we use RSAT, open MMC remote into our server, open the local policy object for that machine, and the public key policies are missing from that local group policy.

Also we can't use the powershell local policy commands, because they are not installed, and when I attempt an install it is not an available module.

Just downloaded the Xendesktop and I'm going through the installation on my newly spun up Windows Server 2016 core OS.  I'm getting an error always on IIS during the xendesktop setup.  Keeps saying "'dism' component failed to install with error 0x00000032." see screen shot.  IIS is installed on the 2016 server.  

Any clues on how to move forward?

Hello,
I'm not familiar with the Windows 2016 licensing system.
I ask myself the following question. I am offered a promotional offer with a minimum of 16 licenses to buy.
If I get 16 Windows 2016 Server Datacenter licenses, it may cover 32 cores, if I understand correctly. These 32 cores can be distributed on 2 servers? for example: 2 servers bi-processors of 8 cores?
There is no limitation on the number of virtual machines (VmWare in my case), on each of the two servers. Is it correct?
Thank you for your answers.

Hi,
Is it better to install Microsoft SQL Server on Azure box or to completely migrate to Azure SQL Server.
Migrating to Azure SQL Server might take long, so will getting used to it.
What are the benefits of moving to Azure SQL Server and are they worth the effort?
Are there any disadvantages of installing and using Microsoft SQL Server on the box instead?
Thanks!

Although 'Server Manager' indicates that Remote Management and Remote Desktop are both 'enabled', I get the standard:
   Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
      1) Remote access to the server is not enabled
      2) The remote computer is turned off  (nope... it's on)
      3) The remote computer is not available on the network (I can see it listed along with the other servers under network)

I can RDP from this workstation to any of the other servers.... just not the new Server Standard 2016.    Any suggestions?

Hey

How do I create a failover fileserver setup on my HyperV (VMM) environment? (Shared disks?)

I am running several Scheduled Tasks on a Windows Server 2016 machine.

When I reboot the server, the daily tasks recover. However Scheduled Tasks that run more than once a day show errors and don't run.

The only way I can get these particular Scheduled Tasks to run is to "future date" the Scheduled Tasks.

This behavior is unique to Windows Server 2016 and my 2k12r2 machines do not respond this way.

Any suggestions on how to get the Scheduled Tasks that run more than once a day to not have to "future date" them after a restart?

Thanks!

Is there a utility that will allow me to expand the OS partition on my new Server 2016?   The power went out while configuring the server just 'out of the box' and I ended up with 50Gb partition for the OS.   I had wanted 150Gb.   When I 'shrank' the size of the DATA drive D, it automatically placed the unallocated space AFTER the D: drive.   From what I can tell, Server 2016 doesn't let you allocate the unallocated anywhere BEFORE that Drive.

NOTE: I am not speaking about Exchange Retention Policies at all for this question

Any ideas?

Optimizing Cloud Backup for Low Bandwidth

Optimizing Cloud Backup for Low Bandwidth

With cloud storage prices going down a growing number of SMBs start to use it for backup storage. Unfortunately, business data volume rarely fits the average Internet speed. This article provides an overview of main Internet speed challenges and reveals backup best practices.

We've got a few old customers that, believe it or not, still have old classic ASP sites.   We recently began to migrate them from SQL 2012 to Azure SQL Database.  After the database migration, we get the following errors on the sites:

Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]The request for procedure '[tablename]' failed because '[tablename]' is a table object.

I figure at this point there has to be a fix for this however I cannot seem to locate it.

Anyone have the magic bullet?

I have a management server that runs on Win2016 with among other applications, SpiceWorks and Axis Camera Station installed.
The issue is that both these applications consume a lot of CPU, is it possible to limit how much CPU these applications can use?

Hello,

Imagine 3 x Windows Server 2016 and a bunch of Windows 7 PC's all joined together on a domain.

One of the Server VM's is for a specific piece of software.   The vendor of this software will need remote access to this server to install, configure and support the piece of software.

The simply way would be to give the domain administrator account, but I'm not comfortable with that.  There is no good reason to give this specific vendor complete access.

How can I create a login for this vendor that would give them "local admin" rights to this server only ?



Thanks
--Paul
