Please provide me with instructions on wow to create an Active Directory federation between two Server 2016 Active Directory forests that are connected with a WAN link.

I need the AD domains within each forest to be able to trust each other and share resources such as file shares.

I am running a Windows 10 virtual machine on Azure.   I have deployed my application using  simple copy file approach (not MSI).   After which, i am successfully creating the service using SC.exe as follows:

sc create "VNCServer.Service" binPath="C:\server\VNCServer.exe"

net start "VNCServer.Service"

sc config "VNCServer.Service" start= auto  

Everything works as expected for weeks (including many reboots) until the next Windows update is taken.  After taking the Windows update, the service appears to have been deleted.  I need to rerun the script above to create the service each time a windows update occurs.

What is happening here?  What can I do?

Gamers in Cloud Meltdown over server speeds

If you're looking for evidence of slowdown on cloud servers following Meltdown patching, look no further than the online gaming community where players of the Battle-Royale style 100 player free-for-all game Fortnite suddenly found that getting Azure and AWS servers to keep 100 fast moving players updated with each other's real time movements is more processor heavy than anyone could guess.

One wonders why they bothered to patch dedicated back-end servers since they aren't vulnerable to exploitation unless some administrator starts browsing the web with one of them.

Hi -
I am setting up my first Server 2016 server.  Doing the initial setup is easy but I am looking for the additional configuration - like sending daily logs and making sure the server is healthy.

Can anyone point to a resource that goes past the initial installation and promoting the server to a Domain Controller?  Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks
Rich

Trying to connect to the IIS to a site hosted in Azure PaaS but I have recently started getting the error which I have attached.

Any help will be appreciated as I cannot access IIS anymore and only make changes via portal and webconfig level.

I have a finance package being hosted on Windows Server 2016 that can send quotes etc direct to clients by email.
My email account is set up using outlook365 (online) and I also have Outlook 2016 install on this server.

The Outlook 2016 client runs fine on the server, I can send and receive email via my online outlook 365 account.
However, I am having trouble sending email from the finance package. When I use the server settings I found online for outlook 365 I keep getting a "Host Not Found" error from the software.

What do I need to do to be able to connect with the outlook email server? Do I need to enter something else that uses a localhost type address that outlook client must be using or do I need to install some form of smtp server on the Windows server machine to be able to send?

Thanks

I have multiple servers and workstations are windows 10
Server 2008 R2
Server 2012 R2
Server 2016
Windows 10 both 1607 and 1709
When I check for updates, the windows update check comes back saying no updates available .

Yet I'm looking at different websites and it seems the following KB's should be installed , yet I don't seem to find these KB numbers
Windows Server, version 1709 (Server Core Installation)  KB4056892
Windows Server 2016 KB4056890
Windows Server 2012 R2 KB4056898
Windows Server 2008 R2 KB4056897
Windows 10 KB4056892

Maybe they are not being installed, maybe they are.  I'm hoping someone can give me some information on whether or not my servers and workstations are now protected from Meltdown and Spectre and why the updates are not being found when I choose to look for updates.

Hello Experts,

We're currently doing some research on Azure AD Connect with a view to synchronize user accounts, passwords etc.

Can someone please let me know if Azure AD Connect is widely used in the industry? If there are any use cases that you're aware of that would also be great.

Cheers

I am using exchange 2013. There are two mailbox servers which are in DAG. Database is mounted and healthy. All seems good. To configure a DR Site, I created an exchange 2013 on azure cloud and synced one database. When I started second database sync, it got failed saying below error. When I check database status, It shows me "Bad copy count" status is 1. While database is mounted and healthy.

error

The seeding operation failed. Error: An error occurred while performing the seed operation. Error: An error occurred while communicating with server 'TTAEXCH2013C1'. Error: Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

I have my Domain hosted with Azure DNS and it is parked on ns1-03.azure-dns.com, ns2-03.azure-dns.net, ns3-03.azure-dns.org, ns4-03.azure-dns.info

I added all of the Services Records for the domain though at the end it wants me to change the NS Records for the domain. I hit Ignore and when I go back it it says that Domain  has 'Possible service issues'

then lists these errors
record Found:  ns1-03.azure-dns.com, record Expected:  ns1.bdm.microsoftonline.com
record Found:  ns2-03.azure-dns.net, record Expected:  ns2.bdm.microsoftonline.com
record Found:  ns3-03.azure-dns.org, record Expected:  ns3.bdm.microsoftonline.com
record Found:  ns4-03.azure-dns.info, record Expected:  ns4.bdm.microsoftonline.com

Does not seem like I should be changing my DNS to another Server?
I have 4 other Domains and I didn't have to do that. for them.

Thanks,

I need to set up a virtual machine for new software.
I received software CPU requirements:
2 GHz or more
Xeon quad-core server grade processor

I am planning to set up the following:
Windows Server 2016 Standard
Number of virtual sockets: 2
Number of cores per socket: 2
Total number of cores: 4

I am pretty sure that Windows Server 2016 Standard - License comes as a 2-core license at the price of  CAD $1,099.56.
Based on my virtual machine setup mentioned above do I need to purchase 2 of these for the future audits?
Also, if someone has any additional details/advice on current licensing process please let me know. I need to upgrade all of my Windows Server 2008 R2 servers to 2016.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Anyone ?
