Recently we added a Server Running Windows Server 2016 to an environment that has a mix of Windows 7 and Windows 10 End users devices as well as a server running Windows server Small Business Edition.

On the new server, we built 2 VM's on Hyper-V.   One was a DC (leaving it at the current domain function level) and also a server for a locally hosted Access Database that the users are mapped to.  SO the old server still provides a 2nd DC as well as file services.

Since that time, we have had issues with lost connection errors to the database when they are working in it, and also are seeing some drive mappings disconnect, drop etc.  At this point, I would say primarily from the Windows 7 machines.

I adjust the policy through the GPMC on the old server to point the users to the new VM for the database that they use, and left 2 drive mappings the same (these go to the old server).

Any ideas out there amongst you EE'ers on why these connection issues to the database and mapped drives would be occuring?

We have enabled Azure Information Protection for an Office 365 Client (they are using E3):
1.PNGNote that this tenant was created a few years back s didnt have the default labels.
So we have created some labels
2.PNGThe Global policy applies to all users and the 'IT' policy applies to just me.
I have installed the Azure IRM Client onto my PC, restarted Outlook and now I see the following when opening a new email:
3.PNGWhich is perfect,

The issue is that any label which has Protection enabled, say the 'U.K. ID - Attachment Encryption' one, if I select it I see:
4.PNGHere is how that Label is setup:
5.PNG6.PNG
Now, I can go into the Office 365 Exchange Admin portal and configure Mail Rules like this:
7.PNGwhich works perfectly. Here are the RMS Templates available to me:
8.PNG
So, my questions/issues are:
  1. How can I resolve the error, when selecting a Protect Label from withing Outlook 2016?
  2. Where are the RMS Templates coming from? It doesn't seem to match the list of Labels

The end goal here is to allow Outlook users to apply a Label which will encrypt the email. If I am using the wrong element then please do let me know.
That will do for now!

Thanks

How can the SQL Server Data Tools be used to verify the connection to the SQL server from the same server or from another server on the same network?
0
While completing the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) setup wizard I receive an error message that says Setup is unable to connect to SQL server with the connection information provided.

I am following the steps in the attached document "SCCM_2016_Setup_Created_by_Eddie.pdf" which can be found on page 72 (here).

The SQL Server name (FQDN) is the name of the server SCCM is being installed on (which already has SQL Server 2016 installed and configured on it following the earlier steps in this "SCCM_2016_Setup_Created_by_Eddie" (attached below).

I have restarted the SCCM server several times and have made sure that all services are running on this server (including the SQL services).

What else can be done to fix this issue so I will be able to successfully configure the SQL server info for SCCM?

The Windows Firewall on this Server 2016 virtual machine is currently disabled. Do I need to configure any exceptions for the Service Broker Port 4022 or is this supposed to be done by the SCCM installation program?

i have a Windows Server 2016 which has an HR Application and it uses SQL Server 2016 Standard as its Database. and it houses around 600GB of Data. (All Housed in One Box)
i would like to have an exact replica of  this server at another site. There is a 30Mbps MetroE connection between the 2 sites.
How can i achieve real time replication between the 2 Server, so if change is made on either one of the servers it is reflected on the other.
Thanks in advance

Helllo,

I need to move a file server from an old Windows 2008 R2 server into a new Windows 2016 FileServer. I decided to utilize DFS Namespace on the new Windows 2016 FS. What is the best route to move the data and create the new shares?

I currently have:
\\serverold\share1
\\serverold\share2

I was thinking of manually copying files to a new folders called \\servernew\shares\share1 and \\servernew\shares\share2 using SyncBackSE.

Then creating a new DFS root called "Shares" pointing to d:\DFSRoots\Shares with "Administrator have full access: other users have read and write permissions".

Then creating a new DFS folder per shared folder on the old server.

Will that be a good route? Should I create a DFS Root per share and just copy each old share data to the new D:\DFTRoots\ corresponding folder?

What is the best route here? I am still a little confused about how DFS works I guess or the difference between a DFS Root to a DFS Folder?

I have a Server Essentials 2016 installed. DNS is installed. DHCP is installed and a scope is setup. the router is set as the gateway. I turn DHCP off on the router intending for the server to handle this but I am missing a piece(s) of the puzzle because it doesn't work. This is a test setup and I am using a home router for learning purposes.

This is actually the first time I've encountered not being able to burn a duplicate of an OS DVD.I have our original from Dell OS DVD for Windows Server 2016 and I want to burn a copy of it, to leave with the server at our datacenter.  I couldn't, because the blank DVD's I have are 4.85GB, but the OS DVD from Dell has 7.53GB data. How'd they do that and how can I burn a spare copy of it?

using the instructions found here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-mfa-nps-extension-rdg i deployed a RDS infrastructure which uses the Azure MFA extension to allow access. I recently deployed an Azure vm running Server 2016 and installed the RDS role and would like to incorporate Azure MFA on that server as well. I thought maybe it was as simple as adding the server to the RAP policy within RD Gateway Manager but that didn't work.

Sometimes while I am working within Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual machines (on a Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual server) I lose the ability to use the mouse within the virtual machine. This happens no matter what size the virtual machine window is (including if it is maximized). However, I am still able to use the keyboard to navigate around the virtual machine.

These virtual machines are fully integrated with the host operating system and all updates have been installed on the base server and virtual machines. When this issue occurs it occurs on only one of the virtual machines (the other virtual machines continue to run properly without having this problem).

I will be able to move the mouse pointer but when I click, double click, or right click on items within the virtual machine these clicks aren't recorded by the virtual machine.

In an attempt to fix the problem, I have tried restarting the Windows Explorer program within the virtual machine but this never fixes the issue.

I will then need to login to the virtual machine using Remote Desktop or restart the virtual machine to fix the problem.

When this issue occurs, what else can I do to fix this issue?

I have an existing Hyper-V host server running server 2016.  There are currently 4 VMs running on it, one of which is a domain controller that is managed by another division and I do not have access to log into it.

Somehow the network interface associated with the virtual switch got pointed to a different network port (there are 4 on this server) and the Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch setting on that port wasn't enabled.  Now I can't enable it.

How does one go about recreating the virtual switch correctly?  I've shutdown all the VMs, deleted the virtual switch, reassigned a static IP to the interface to be used then recreated the virtual switch, but I never get the virtual switch setting on the physical network interface to be selected and I can't manually select it.

What is the KB number of the most recent Server 2016 update?

I have some Server 2016 servers that need to have their updates manually installed and would like to download and install the most recent full update so that way I will only have to install one update and won't have to download and install several updates.

What are the differences between the full and delta Windows update files?

For example, the Windows update KB428488 has two files available on the update catalog website (see below).

When would I use the full installation file as opposed to the delta installation file?

windows10.0-kb4284880-x64_34d88e02608fa8c7db3dda395434d93ba109169c.msu (1.3 GB)

I need to manually install some windows updates on certain Server 2016 servers (such as the KB4284880 update).

I have searched the Windows Server Update Server folder (that contains all of the downloaded update files) for the update filenames but haven't been able to find them.

windows10.0-kb4284880-x64_34d88e02608fa8c7db3dda395434d93ba109169c.msu

windows10.0-kb4284880-x64_delta_ddc8a4e151a275c051e35329abe2fdc6cac13eb8.msu

Is there any way of extracting these updates into MSU files from the WSUS server so I can manually install them on the servers that need these updates manually installed? Or will I simply need to download them from Microsoft's website?

How can I use Group Policy or Admin configurations to set small taskbar and desktop icons on all Windows 10 and Server 2016 client computers?
0
The Server 2016 Active Directory domain within my organization is currently using a custom start layout XML file to control which programs are pinned to the taskbar on Windows 10 client computers.

This is being done using the steps described here.

While we want the icons that are pinned by this group policy custom XML file to stay pinned, we would also like the users to be able to pin other icons to their taskbars as well. Not all users within our organization use the same programs and certain users want certain programs or apps pinned while other users don't, etc. so we would like individual users to be able to choose which additional icons (if any) will be pinned and for their computers to retain these customizations that they make.

However, we have found that using the current configuration this isn't possible.

So are there any ways of changing this so that users will be able to customize which other icons they want to have pinned to their Windows 10 taskbars?
