Need to Use Set-WinUserLanguageList en-US to Change Language  for specific user

Can we push it remotely for specific local users on servers not in domain in silent mode

When we run it locally steps are  >Command Prompt -Type PowerShell  and hit Enter-Then Run Command -Set-WinUserLanguageList en-US -Will Ask for Y to Press

Can we get this in some script to push on remote computers in one go or if changes can be reflectedd in first login -as it is asking to log off and login again ?

I am in the process of moving my KMS server that will be hosting two domains.
I have made the DNS change for both domain DNS to point to the new KMS server.

_VLMCS._tcp.OldDomain.local        SRV service location:
          priority       = 0
          weight         = 0
          port           = 1688
          svr hostname   = vollic.NewDomain.local
vollic.NewDomain.local       internet address = 192.168.94.50

I can ping it from any machine on either domain.
When is set the SKMS to force it to talk to the new KMS server it does register successfully.

The issue I am having is if you allow the client to auto discover it registers with the oldDomain KMS server.

DO I just have to wait it out?

I have a SharePoint list with two columns that I want to multiply (QTY - numeric and Unit price - currency).  I want the result to go in a third column (_Line total - currency).  The SharePoint list Flow is "When an item is created or modified."  This used to be pretty easy with SharePoint Designer but because I'm new to Flow, it seems overly complicated.  A calculated column is out because I want to use the third column to group and sum in list views.

Here is the expression I'm using but it errors out when run:
mul(triggerBody()?['QTY'],triggerBody()?['Unit price'])

Open in new window


Update list item flow

We are making the jump to Azure....We currently have a SQL 2008 cluster using physical hardware in a datacenter. The application vendor has stated that they must use a specific version of SQL Server, so “SQL Database” cannot be used as we must have full control over SQL Server updates. Do we need to cluster the Windows server in Azure? I was thinking that Azure offered OS level protection and clustering was not needed.
 
My typical conversation with a fail over clustering (SQL FCI) goes as follows:
  • Do we need hardware level redundancy and protection? (If yes, then SQL FCI is a fit)
  • Do we need operating system level redundancy and protection (If yes, then SQL FCI is a fit)
  • If we have answered no to the above questions, this is not a fit for you as the FCI still has a single point of failure at the DB level.

We have decide to use Azure VPSs. My though was that even if we had a stand-alone SQL instance, Azure should provide protection at the hardware and OS level. I would assume we don’t need to snapshot the 1TB drive that the data and log files will live on, they can just snap the C and E drive where the OS and “Program Files” live. Some sysAdmins did make a comment of “If there is any manual intervention required to restore the OS, then we want to cluster”.

Kindly let me know your thoughts on this please and thank you.

Hello all,

I recently setup RDS on Server 2016. I have everything working correctly, and can access apps that I have published on the web console. However, I published the RDP client, and when trying to connect to a VM, it hangs on "Securing Remote Connection" then a popup box says "Internal Error."

I had it working on my own environment, but I do not recall how I fixed that problem. Does anyone have ideas on what I could try or fix?

Has anyone had success performing a tenant to tenant migration from SharePoint Online to Office 365?

I have ran across several articles stating that FastTrack for Microsoft doesn't allow tenant to tenant migration.  Other than Metalogix and Sharegate are there other 3rd party tools that others have used with success for migrating SharePoint?

One of my clients is a single server environment, Windows server 2016 Essentials, running SQL Server (Express) 2014.  

They are running Thompson Reuters PracticeCS with the database hosted on this server.

Until about 4 weeks ago, things were running along normally.  Then, logins started failing until a variable time between 8:00 am and 8:30 am.  Once the logins start working, they work for everyone the reset of the day.  

Backups run at 12:00 am and finish within minutes.  The database is "Always on".

I have contacted the vendor and they claim that it is a SQL problem and refuse to help troubleshoot.

Any help is appreciated.  Below are the recent logs.  At 8:37, users could log in.

Running dcdiag /v gives me the following warning

A warning event occurred.  EventID: 0x00001796
            Time Generated: 09/17/2018   18:28:17
            Event String:
            Microsoft Windows Server has detected that NTLM authentication is presently being used between clients and this server. This event occurs once per boot of the server on the first time a client uses NTLM with this server.

            NTLM is a weaker authentication mechanism. Please check:

                  Which applications are using NTLM authentication?
                  Are there configuration issues preventing the use of stronger authentication such as Kerberos authentication?
                  If NTLM must be supported, is Extended Protection configured?

            Details on how to complete these checks can be found at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=225699.

Thanks for posting here!
There is a policy for this stuff.
Computer Configuration
-Windows Settings
--Security Settings
---Local Policies
----Security Options
Network security:LAN Manager authentication level
You may choose to "Send NTLMv2 response only\refuse LM & NTLM"

If you want to apply this to a domain, configure it at the default domain
controller policy.
Or you may configure it to your whole domain as well.
The Kerberos is the default mode and cannot be disabled and thus no need to

I recently setup Folder Redirection on Windows Server 2016.  
It is working great for the most part.
So far two issues:

1. Anyone who is not the user that has access can see and read and copy the files, they can copy a file into their folder but the user cannot see it, something to do with special permissions? In order to copy the users files to this new server from an old one I had them in a certain location on the server and logged into a workstation as the user and then as the user copied them from that location  into their folder redirect folders like desktop, documents etc.

2. Sometimes have issues where the users cannot see their files.

Hey all, we are getting rid of our on premise DC which has our file server on it as well and move to the cloud completely....the question is how to handle our file server in the cloud.  

I see two options:

1) Use azure files....I know it doesn't have Azure AD integration yet but I am ok with that since you can still do some sort of permissioning.  But is there a way to deploy the mapped drive automatically to Azure AD and/or Intune users?

2) Use a Server 216 server in the cloud and put the file server on it....the problem is that I think it has to be joined to Azure AD-DS...and go over a site2site vpn which would be pretty slow.

Another question that I have is…if we implement Azure AD-DS….and join an Azure VM to Azure AD-DS, does that make Azure AD useless and unusable?

Do we need a site-2-site VPN tunnel between Azure and our offices to use Azure AD-DS?

How would our client desktops/users in the office access the Azure VM and authenticate if Azure AD-DS? Do we have to join the local client machines to Azure AD-DS or will our Azure AD accounts (tied to our O365 accounts) still work?

Hi

On my Azure VM (Windows 2016) two users can connect at once.

Will Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Services user licenses enable more users to connect?
If so, how would I assign this license to my Azure VM?

is this the right approach or should I use the following https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/product-licensing/client-access-license.aspx#

Hi,

I need some assistant on figuring an issue out.
Recently deployed an azure app and having some issues with the log-out.

The log-out is having users log out of office.com instead of the app only.

we are trying to prevent the log out of office.
is there any way this can be done?

I have changed the log-out URL on azure under the app settings

I have sent the vendor the URL as well and they set it as post-logout as well as logout URL

Still being redirected to Office.com and getting logged out of there when clicking on logout.


Anyone seen this before?
Also this is my first app on azure so I am a bit new to this.

thanks

Hi

In Azure I have added RDS (Remote Desktop Services). I have added users to the new advm (active directory virtual machine). What do I need to do to log into
my main server or vm? This whole process seems overcomplicated.

When copying files from a NAS toour  new server,  I was testing to copy the files using Robocopy with the following command:

ROBOCOPY <NAS folder> <Destination folder> /S /J /ZB /MIR /DCOPY:DAT /COPY:DATSOU /SECFIX /TIMFIX /MT:48 /R:3 /W:5 /log:log.txt

Afterwards, the administrator does not have access to any of the folders, so I cannot gain access to the folders/files.  If I take ownership it wipes out the original folder owner/permissions.  I looked at using icacls command: icacls <Server Share path>  /grant "Domain Admins":F /t  but it gives an access denied message what I try to add the administrator user.

Should I be using a different approach to copy the files to the new server while adding the administrator user access to the entire directory/file structure?

We currently have 2 DCs onsite and 1 DC in Azure. There are more times than not, our building has a planned power outage and we have to shut down our servers. However, our Cisco ASA is still up and we want the DC in Azure to pick up DHCP/DNS. I'm not sure how to go about this or where to look.
