I have a new Server 2016 machine on the same domain as an old SBS2008 machine. I have joined the 2016 box to the domain and promoted it to a DC. It has replicated AD, DNS and Group Policy but it wont create the SYSVOL or NETLOGON shares on the new machine. I have tried all the fixes on google i could find that seemed relevant but it wont replicate FRS. As it seems to have replicated everything else i was wondering if i could simply manually copy over the SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares to the new machine? I know its probably not recommended but the old machine will be demoted so in theory i would have thought that at that point it wouldnt matter that it couldnt replicate?
Anyway if anyone has any idea if this approach is workable please let me know?
Thanks in advance.

Upgrade your Question Security!

I have two applications currently configured through azure that appear on my office 365 slide deck. Both apps are cloud based.
Recently the apps completely disappeared from my slide deck for two days and then re appeared after I asked some questions internally
Is there any logs I can look at either in azure or 365 to understand what happened and why they disappeared. I checked azure audit but it didn’t show anything if interest. Thanks

Installed a new Windows Server 2016 at an existing SBS 2011 site.  Email was Migrated to Office 365 several months ago and all clients were connected and working fine.

New server and domain are connected to Office 365 and Azure AD for management and password replication is working perfectly.

All Outlook 2010 clients connect to Office 365 fine.

None of the Outlook 2016 clients will connect to Office 365 for the previous user of the pc.  

Get

"something went wrong we weren't able to register your device and add it to windows"

and it continually asks for password.

Machine User Profiles were migrated from old domain to new domain.

 Can add outlook profile for new users and, can add an outlook profile for the user on a different machine.

The problem seems to be only present when the following are present.

Windows 10 Pro
Outlook 2016
Outlook profile existed on machine before the domain migration.

I have tried removing all Outlook profiles from the mail control panel and the registry.  No Joy.

I am running System Center Configuraiton Manager 2016 (SCCM) on a Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual server.

When the server boots up I always have to go into the Windows services and manually start the SQL Server CEIP service (MSSQLSERVER), SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER), SQL Server Reporting Service, (MSSQLSERVER), & CONFIGURATION_MANAGER_UPDATE services since these services don't start automatically.

I have already created a batch file that will start these services when it is run and I would prefer not to change the startup type on these services from automatic to automatic (delayed start) unless absolutely necessary.

What can I do to fix this issue so these services will automatically start and won't have to be manually started every time the server boots up?

Does Azure have inbuilt functionality for SSO to Office 365 or do you have to use a sync tool?

What is the best method when designing a multi-tenancy platform using Azure and Office 365 (Exchange), where you use SSO for authenticating users using Office 365 against domain controllers in Azure?

I've installed DYMO Label Software 8.7.2 on Windows Server 2016, and it seems to install fine but when I open the software I get the error shown in the attachment. Clicking OK just instantly closes the software and I cannot get into it.

When I install the software, it installs the pre-requisites. I've then tried doing a 'Complete' install and a 'Custom' with only the 'DYMO Label' component installed, but the results are the same.

Nothing reported in Event Viewer.

I'm not massively familiar with the inner workings of DLS - can anyone suggest how I can troubleshoot this? And what is Data Tracking anyway? Sounds like a component that I don't need anyway.

I had a look in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\DYMO\DLS8 and there were a couple of files there. I tried to open the DLS8.log.xml file but it only gave me one line of information, despite being 580KB. There is also a file in this folder called 'DataTracking' (no extension), which could be relevant. I've uploaded both files here anyway.

Thanks.

I have a need for a powershell script that monitors a process for example if I wanted to moinitor the sprint spooler service on a server I like to run a PS script as a task on the server that will check when the spooler stops working , then send me an email that it stopped , then try to restart the service if it failed to restart the service to let me know via email or if it succeeded to restart to let me know it successfully did so. if those options fail I would like the script to restart the server after 10 min. and let me know that the server was restarted. IS that possible?

We have a Windows 2016 RDS Collection with one broker and 3 servers - 45 users
We need to logon once as each user to each server to set Java permissions for the ATO website  and set a default database connection for an HR application and set printer preference (ie Users name).
We have been unable to find a way to login to a particular server as a particular user. (Except mstsc /admin for Administrator login).
The company has long working hours and shutting down 2 of the servers to access a particular one is not convenient.

Urgent!

we have a customer in stress with a cluster in a box from Fujitsu. He has 2 nodes and shared storage inside the same box. the Disks are sas connected to the 2 nodes.

the system was online for few months without any problems.

now since today the nodes cannot connect to the shared storage. We a disk pool of 20 disks. All disks are online. we have 2 volumes on the disk pool.

volume 1 is online, volume 2 is not online.

when we try to get volume 2 online in the disk mananger of server 2016 we get an access denied error. but after googeling this seems to be normal. disk needs to be set online in the cluster manager.

when we want to set the disk online in the cluster manager we also receive an error and 2 critical events are created.

Cluster resource 'Clusterschijf 1' of type 'Physical Disk' in clustered role 'db001812-8ac1-43c7-87c5-783f1fb36254' failed. The error code was '0xf' ('Het systeem kan het opgegeven station niet vinden.').

Based on the failure policies for the resource and role, the cluster service may try to bring the resource online on this node or move the group to another node of the cluster and then restart it.  Check the resource and group state using Failover Cluster Manager or the Get-ClusterResource Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

Cluster Shared Volume 'Volume1' ('Clusterschijf 1') is no longer accessible from this cluster node because of error '(1460)'. Please troubleshoot this node's connectivity to the storage device and network…

I have a website on an internal domain. It's hosted on IIS and uses some javascript scripts and SKEL for for content generation, resizing, it works well as a responsive web page.
There is a form to send email, it is centered around using an external email provider. I have set it up so that it puts the requested data, (type of info requested, name, email, etc) and puts that where it belongs in the users own default email client. (generally Outlook). We have our own SMTP server.
My question is what is the simplest approach to get email sent using the form? The server is Windows server 2016, IIS. I have looked up stuff and see PHP, ASP it's kind of crazy how complicated it gets. Maybe I have not found the right tutorial.

I'm connecting from a Windows 10 desktop to a server running windows server 2016. I'm using Remote Desktop and I'm working some very long running processes on the remote server. My problem is that Remote Desktop logs out my session and terminates any running processes after some amount of time without input (inactivity) from myself.

This means I need to sit at my pc wiggling the mouse every now and then

We have  15 user set-up those who access remote desk from their pcs.

Does anyone know how I disable this behavior for one particular user instead of all?

Windows server 2016 - forwarding radius requests to a NPS server. The radius server keeps complaining that the NPS server doesn't reply. I get this error on the radius server - The remote RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) server did not process the authentication request.

I am looking for a way to use a single RD Web Access page to connect to different Collections. Here is what I have.

Session Collection 1 - Application published using farm webapp.domain.com (Five servers)
Session Collection 2 - Remote Desktop published using farm rds01.domain.com (Five servers)
Session Collection 3 - Remote Desktop published using farm rds02.domain.com (Five servers)

Each farm has a different use case and applications, hence the three farms. But I would like users to access any of them by logging into https://web.domain.com/RDWeb.

The farms are using round robin DNS, which could be part of the problem. I did this so if you use mstsc, the computer name points to rds01 which has an A record to all five servers.

The other potential problem could be that I used Set-RDPublishedName on the Connection Broker and changed the name to webapp.domain.com. I did this so the wildcard SSL certificate didn't issue any warnings.

It appears that the published name on the Connection Broker is what the Web Access server uses to launch everything. So instead of Remote Desktop going to RDS01 or RDS02, everything redirects to webapp. If what I am trying to do is possible, what do I need to change?

When I restart the Server 2016 Hyper-V base server (which has 5 Server 2016 virtual servers running) the virtual servers all have the "Shut Down event tracker" notification window that displays once the base server boots back up and I connect to these virtual servers.

Does this mean that the virtual servers aren't being shut down or restarting properly?
