Azure

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.

We are looking for expertise in Azure Remote App functionality.   We want to migrate our existing microsoft citrix application delivery to Azure Remote App.  

the issue we are running into is we have 300-400 active directory users and many of these users can get into multiple databases.   We want to be able to point a single active directory login to multiple client databases by imbedding something in the connection string, or using group policies and active directory settings....looking for options such that on user USER0001
can start an application and point to a specific database with a remote desktop session...then have another remote desktop session that has the same user0001 id and starts the same application but points to a different database.


Currently we have a Citrix environment now. We have one application that our users access. We setup multiple ICON's in Citrix to access this one application. Each ICON points to the same app with a different data location. There are over 500 ICON's. When a user logs in to our Citrix site, they have certain ICON's based on Active Directory security. We would like to know how we could efficiently provide the same kind of solution using Microsoft Azure Remote Apps?

I just created a Windows Cluster with an enterprise admin account, I get an error as below:


The computer object associated with cluster network name resource '' could not be updated.

The text for the associated error code is: Unable to protect the Virtual Computer Object (VCO) from accidental deletion
 
The cluster identity 'DB1CLUSTER$' may lack permissions required to update the object. Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that the cluster identity can update computer objects in the domain.

If you Team TWO 1 gig NICs, will that double the speed for a file server migration?

I keep seeing references to increasing reliability / redundancy , but I'm trying to increase the SPEED for a file server migration (ROBOCOPY of 5 TB of data).

Any tips on that?

Thx

I am using a radius server, and my cert on my server expired.  I renewed it, but it's not taking effect. I restarted the cert service, but still no go.
What am I missing?

When I log into my smart phone, or windows pc, any device, it's failing to connect because my cert is expired.  See pictures below.
What else do I need to do?  Since I'm using a radius server, I don't know if I should delete this cert and create a new one, as it might have issues pointing to the wrong cert?

I keep on trying to connect on any device and still displays the old expired cert.

Has anyone made use of the password protection settings in Azure AD in a hybrid environment? More specifically, the banned passwords and password protection for Windows Server for Active Directory? We're looking to leverage these settings in order to ensure 1) avoiding the use of particular words/phrases, and 2) ensure that these policies are also enforced on our on-prem Active Directory domain.

Hello,

I need to create a dynamic rule in Azure to group users which their their FIRSTNAME and LASTNAME are not blank(NULL).  The other word, this group should exclude all service accounts or generic name in our company.  

Please advise the rule to do it.  

Thanks.

I would like to use an Azure Application proxy as our single place to go for OWA and ActiveSync having it handle redirecting to the on prem and cloud mailboxes.

We currently are upgrading to Exch 2016 hybrid.  All servers are in place and installed and the hybrid is up and working.  We have OWA.company.com redirected to the owa-company.msappproxy.net address.

I would like to have OWA.company.com  be the single url for OWA and ActiveSync.  we have split DNS and internal is working fine with proper redirects from our old servers - url: webmail.company.com to the new owa.company.com.


so right now OWA and ECP are working but Activesync is not.  If I enable Passthrough auth on the proxy, I can get Activesync to work by pointing it to the owa-company.msappproxy.net address but not the OWA.company.com that simply forwards to that same address.  Certs are installed where we have the redirect (AWS).

Any Help would be appreciated!

Hi we're looking for a tool that will help us "crawl" through our file share server to identify some groups and what permissions they have, either directly or inherited. I know some tools that will allow AD account A has file permission to file share B, but we looking for something that will allow us to simply put in AD account A and have it search all the file folders in our file share server for both share permissions and NTFS permissions. Even if it's a PS script, or some 3rd part tool, we don't mind either.

I am not able to access the share folders from Windows 2016 Datacenter to any of the windows server at a specific location. Getting error message "Parameter incorrect" .Tried the below:
1) Check the firewall ports to the target server and port 445 is responding.
2) Tried to access the share from windows 2012 server and it works.
3) Tried to access //hostname/Admin$ and it fails with error Parameter incorrect.
Is there any specific setting within 2016 datacenter which is stopping this?

Best Practices Analyzer missing from Server tasks  list in Windows Server 2016 Essentials

According to MS's site, the following:
Run the Windows Server Essentials Best Practices Analyzer6
10/03/2016
2 minutes to read
 
Applies To: Windows Server 2016 Essentials, Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials, Windows Server 2012 Essentials

When you finish migrating your settings and data to Windows Server Essentials, you should run the Windows Server Essentials Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) on the Destination Server. The BPA examines a server that is running Windows Server Essentials and presents a report that describes issues and provides recommendations for resolving them. The recommendations are developed by the product support organization for Windows Server Essentials.

To run the Windows Server Essentials BPA on the Destination Server
Log on to the Destination Server as an administrator, and then open the Dashboard.

In the Dashboard, click the Devices tab.

In the ServerTasks pane, click Best Practices Analyzer.

Review each BPA message, and follow the instructions to resolve issues if necessary.

Hello
We have three domain controllers installed in Windows Server 2016 (virtual machines in VMware vCenter 6.7). And we need to create a similar test environment.
For that i restored a backup of one domain controller, and tried Seizing FSMO roles (i used these steps lots of times in different version of Windows Server 2003, 2008 r2, and it worked perfectly).
But now, after seizing all FSMO roles, and restarting the test domain controller, AD fails to work correctly.
When i run the command NETDOM QUERY FSMO to check to roles holder, i get error saying:
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
I precize that, DNS resolution is working and FSMO roles are seized using NTDSUTIL commands.
I wonder how can i make it work correctly?
Thank you in advance,

Hi,

Hope you will help or at least point me out to the right direction.

I'm using Veeam 9.5 update 4b with 5 Esxi host with Vcenter etc. I have installed Veeam on a dedicated Physical server (Windows 2019). The Disk to Disk part working absolutely fine but the problem is Disk to Cloud. I'm using Azure BLOB storage. Azure repository been crated and configured in Veeam. Also, created the SOBR (Scale Out Backup Repository).  As a testing purpose i have changed the "Restore Points to keep on disk' is set to 3. Also, set the "Move backup files older than 2 days'. Unfortunately even after 3 days the backups aren't uploaded to Azure container.

Any idea what could be the issue here?

Looking for a backup solution for multiple servers at multiple clients. We have a 40tb server with ftp at our office as the hosting server. Need to be able to do incremental backups, restore via web would be nice, the clients need to be able to access a web interface and see their backups, logs etc. Email notifications are essential. We tried duplicati but it crashes on most clients (files in use maybe). Trying URBackup but its slow. Hyper-V support is a plus as well as MS SQL backups. Free or Paid is fine.

Hi,

We have a the following network in the office.

192.168.3.0 Subnet for internal users and file server.
192.168.6.0 Subnet for our web application server (Web server is 192.168.6.1). This server is hosted web applications for public.

Now I am thinking of moving 192.168.6.0 range network to MS Azure and host 192.168.6.1 web server on cloud. Once I do this, I need a VPN connection between Azure and our office. Our office has Watchguard Firewall, so I hope I can create VPN link between Azure and our office.

I have gone through many Azure articles, but I am bit confusing where to start this work. Do I need to create Virtual Network and subnet first? Or can I create VM on Azure and make a VPN connection between our office and Azure.

Can I someone kindly advice on how to move our 192.168.6.0 range network and web server to Azure please?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
mltech

Does anyone have any first hand experience with putting Active Directory in the Cloud?  I woudl assume Azure is the GoTo since botht hings are Microsoft products?  I manage a small school's IT and they have 2 on-prem servers that are getting old.  Basically they use them for AD, File Services, and Print Server.  I'd like to know if it's good to put those things in the cloud, and waht are the do's, dont's and gotcha's with that type of plan.  Thanks!

Hi.
Planning to set up an Enterprise app (non-gallery) with SSO to AAD.
This requires a AAD P1 license.
An alternative is to set up "App Registration" wit an App-key (??)

We have both set up and both works with AAD as IDP.

I only know about the Enterprise App with SAML SSO (requiring AAD P1)

this new app will be used by 2000 people not having AAD P1 licenses..

Can someone please explain the differences between these two options?
If I can meet the SSO requirement without AAD P1 = money saved.

Thanx!

Hi,
I am looking for a AI chatbot that we can setup like a FAQ model. Response can be in the form of Text / HTML / Images / Video / PPT / PDF.

Some kind of iframe / Link that I can directly integrate in my Android App.

I am looking for some third party or subscription model where I will setup my data and I can start using it.

I have tried DialogFlow, MS Azure chatbot model. But things are not working.

Please suggest.

Hi,

Just as the title states, we have nearly 80 Hyper-V workstations and servers and are considering moving all non-DCs to Azure.  Is there a checklist, good read and/or best-practice guides out there I can go through and pitch to my superiors?  I like Azure for it's availability sets, fault tolerance, backup, and the ability to scale up and/or out - dynamically.   Do we also save "significant" money on licensing?

Thanks!
