We've just installed a brand new server (windows 2016) at a customer site.
This server will serve as replacement of an old windows sbs server (AD + Fileserver).
We have not connected any screen to this server and when we connect to remotely to the console of the server, we are limited to a resolution of 640 x 480

When we connect RDP, we have normal, high resolution

We've tried updating graphic drivers, but that did not work.
installing a generic monitor solved my issue, until reboot. then i fell back on default 640x480 resolution.

Does anyone know how to get windows resolution issue solved?

We have tried multiple workarounds like reinstalling, installing sign-in assistant, installing dot net 4.6.2, C++ Runtime libraries. but of no use.

Only thing is it is running on Windows 10 Machine and not on older machines.

HPE Smart Array controller P408i-a G10 ML350 Proliant Server, 12 core, 4x SAS 600GB 10K HDDs in a Raid5. Would using an SSD drive for SR Smartcache on a VMWare configuration with 3 VMs benefit performance? Does this SR Smartcache work in some configuration and not others? VMs include WS16 RDS, OES Linux Server, WS16 WebServer. VMWare will be loaded onto a HPE Micro Secure 32GB Digital Card.

I have a client setup with Windows Server 2016 Essentials, and one of the employees has a MacBook that they want to use to connect remotely.  I am thinking they will want/need to connect to a computer via the remote workplace and also establish a VPN connection.  I do not work with Macs, so maybe I can be pointed in the right direction with detailed articles, etc.

I am trying to use Azure AD and InTune to setup new computers.  I am trying to get a PS script that will add a SharePoint document library sync location to OneDrive for Business when a user logs in.  I would rather automate this process then having to tell users how to login to SharePoint and select Sync on the appropriate document library.

Hi Experts,

We have a client that we set up with Azure Site Recovery. The agent needed an update on two Servers.
When the updates for the Azure Site Recovery Unified Setup was at step three, it was looking for the Registration key for both servers. They ones we have from initial setup, are too old according to the set up.

I cannot find on the Azure Portal to download a new key.

Where normally I would find a radio button on the 'server' window to download the key (like on another customer portal, it is not there on this customer.

Is there away to download the key via PowerShell (not and expert on PS) or would the area to download it be in another part of the Azure GUI/portal.

See attached

-Thanks

Hi

I look after a trust called NET and now more schools have joined this trust. Each of the school running different email system. I have been asked by the NET management to design one 0365 email system for the whole trust. So I have subscribed for office 365 and have set up a single multi domain tenancy for the trust.
At the moment there are 15 schools within the trust and in the future more schools may join our trust.

I did some research and Microsoft article says that I need to create a single Azure AD connector and sync all the 15 active directory into this single Azure AD connector and this will create mail accounts in the 0365 and this will have a one GAL.
I am bit concerned in the future if more schools joins the trust and the address book is going to be very huge.

Is there any way address book can be hidden from each other viewing-means when one of the school (Domain-A) after migrating to the 0365 single multi domain tenancy(NET).
When the Staff from Domain-A log into 0365, I would like them to see only the staff from Domain-A + Students from Domain-A and All the staff from Domain-B, C, D, E, F…..O

Similarly when Students from Domain-A log into 0356, I would like them to see only the staff from Domain-A + Students from Domain-A only.

Please let me know if this is possible to achieve or if there is a better way of planning and setting up this.
Any suggestions much appreciated and thanks in advance.

A Windows Server 2016 OS will only successfully restart or shut down when installing Windows updates.

This is an Active Directory domain controller that is running at the Server 2016 domain level.

This server was infected with malware and viruses.

I was able to clean the malware and viruses using Symantec Antivirus, Malwarebytes, and the SFC and DISM commands. Now there are no longer any traces of malware or viruses but the server continues to hang while shutting down or restarting.

When shutting down or restarting the server will go through all of the proper shutdown steps and will then stay stuck at either the "Shutting down" or "Restarting" portion of the process and stays stuck until we hold down the power button on the server or until the power supply is powered off.

There have been too many changes to the server and Active Directory since the virus infections to justify using a past backup to restore the server so we would like to fix this issue so that the server will successfully shut down and restart.

What can be done to do this issue so we can successfully shut down and restart the server?

I am working on windows server 2016 multipoint service.  I have installed my ssl cert for the web and the rdp sessions.  I cannot seem to remove a ssl cert that was previously there.    I have gone through the rdp gateway ssl to verify correct ssl cert.  I have verified that web service has correct ssl and the web ssl is working perfectly.  But I have gone through the mmc on certificates for personal and computer.  I have removed all old certs that were self generated.  but I cannot seem to get the rdp to recognize the new ssl cert.  It always comes back with the old self created cert.  I have researched and it was working initially.  So, I am not sure where now to look or what to do to fix this issue.  This is for a client and I am trying to get this resolved as soon as I can.

thank you.

Getting error trying to instll windows 2016 updates. I did dism and am getting

Error: 14093

The identity string is malformed. This may be due to a trailing comma, more than two unnamed attributes, missing attribute name or missing attribute value.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

I have ran sfc and no issues and did the steps below. Still getting same error. Any other ideas?

->Download a copy of the windows 10 iso at Windows 10 choose 32/64 bit depending on your system
 -> I then mounted this using windows 10 double clicking the iso puts it on a new drive letter
 ->In the mounted iso file find sources\install.wim this is in a strange esd format
 ->install NT lite add your install.wim(esd) file and convert it into a wim file place it somewhere on your harddrive I found making a easy to type path useful for later
 ->Start run cmd as admin
 -> Enter Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup into the cmd window making sure you are using cmd as admin and wait
 ->Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:Path:1 /limitaccess

Hi

A company that I do work for is having problems with their emails on a South African server. A local company suggested moving to Office 365.
I already have them on Azure where they use ASP.net web apps as well as a SQL database on a daily basis. Is there an easier more cost effective
way to sort out their emailing issues using Azure or some other more cost effective way.

Hi,

i have a two node Hyper-V Cluster build.

now when i want to add the Hyper-V Cluster to my Veeam Backup server he always says that the specified ip does not match any resolved cluster ip addresses.

the hyper-v cluster and my veeam server are in the same lan but the veeam server is not connected to the ad of the cluster.

any idea's why this will not work? When i add the two nodes as standalone hyperv with there ip addresses to veeam then this works. only the cluster does not connect?!

I am having an issue applying the Azure Rights Management templates I have created in office 365.

I have installed the Azure Information Protection client but when I click on a label I get the error below.

Azure Information Protection cannot apply this label because it’s configured for a rights management template that can’t be found. Try again in a few minutes.

Any help would be appreciated

I have a Windows Server with total 16 cores. I currently have a 16 Core standard license and run 2 x VMs on the Host. The host isn't on the domain and has no other roles.

I need to add another 2 x VMs. Do I simply need to buy another OEM 16 core Standard server license and stick the additional license sticker to the server chassis for good measure. Is it as simple as that or do I need to upgrade my current license in some way.

Thanks

Hi

I am using windows server 2016 as a home pc, so no server .

I have a Lsi Megaraid card with a dual port SAS cable connected to a dual port hard drive.

I am trying to get both ports to show in device manager but I can not seem to figure out how.

I have enabled mpio and checked the mpio properties boxes iSCSI + SAS Support.

That still does not present the dual ports to device manager .

I believe iSCSI initilizor is for IP NIC multipathing , which is no good for me because my SAS multipath disks are connected internally to a PCIe megaraid card.

What do I do to get windows to recognise the dual ports ?

Thanks

I'd like a nutshell explanation of windows server backup on my Windows Server 2016.

I ran it yesterday to backup to my F drive.

I ran it again today, and it seems to have overwritten my files for 2/22 and now they are all updated to 2/23 on my F drive.

So I take it there are no "previous" versions like with a system restore, where you can go back to an earlier version? It's just replaced?

what are best practices for scheduling and running the windows server backups?

I only did the 2 on demand.


Also, I did the Custom instead of Full Server, I added:
Bare metal recovery
system state
system reserved
local disk C

it transfered 33.19MB for system reserved and 110.73GB for C drive.

the other option of using Full Server instead of Custom, is backing up 277.90 GB. Is it also backing up my D drive? What's going on here?
It says server data, applications, and system state.

How does it know not to backup my backup on the F drive?

thanks!

I'm thinking about adding a 2016 server to a 2008 R2 domain... the DC's are 2008 R2 and the functional level is 2008 R2. What issues would I experience with adding a 2016 member server? I'm particularly interested in any issues I would experience with group policy being applied to the 2016 member server.

Hi

We have deployed SSO with password sync using adconnect to azure.  The plan was to leverage share point for our intranet and no doubt grow on that.  We have managed to get the SSO to work fine for the two urls specified my MS (tenant and domain) and the machines/users logon automatically, which we like.  However we are unable to achieve this with SharePoint.  

Is this possible?
Can we cusomise the my apps screen - see attached?

We only have EO plan 1 licences not o365 or sharepoint.

Cheers

Windows Server 2016 and not being able to download a file from a remote ftp site.  The ftp site given is not an IP address and is domain www.vaeb.uscourt.gov.  I have a script setup to pull the file down, but it never generates.  When I manually run it I can see it connects, but never see it transfer data.

So I decided to temporarily disable Windows firewall, and it ran fine. I enabled the firewall back and opened up both inbound and outbound ports (20 and 21).  However, it does not download data.  Please note we do not host and ftp server and simply want to connect to a remote ftp server.
