Hi,
I have 3 apps that are operating within ms/access (split beck end) and need to (i) integrate them in a single unique app and (ii) migrate to a web-based environment (i.e. accessible through a browser)  or client/server with the database on the back-end. I recognise that I really must quit ms/access as its restrictions on the GUI are starting to really show and its cracking all over (e..g. it launches explorer to accede to a dynamic net page to show GIS stuff, but the inverse path (from explorer back to ms/access is, simply, impossible).

The back-end database is open but I am able to use any common databases, ODBC databases as I will limit both the field types and the functions, but I need to process images (I have been doing it with bought controls).

My first idea is to go with NetBeans or IntelliJ or Azure but I am terribly hesitating. If its desktop based, the final app needs to run on many platforms or then be web-based. Running on IOS/Android would also be a requirement.

can anyone help?

(in total I gave roughly 300 forms and 150 reports and about 450 columns... (not counting roughly 200 queries over 150 tables).

Can anyone help to coach me on a convenient path?

all hints will be cheerfully accepted

joao

PS I am able to pay for a licensed platform. My current MS/Access "bloat" came from the extraordinary EE sopport...

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.

Scheduled task won't run unless logged in on Windows Server 2016. I've researched this for several hours and I'm getting nowhere. This is calling a VBS script which runs just fine if you either run it manually, or set the scheduled task to run only when the user is logged in.

The user is a domain admin. I also tried activating the default administrator account and it also fails in the same way when using this account, too.

I've tried calling the script via a batch file.
I've ensured that the START IN folder is specified and that it has a trailing backslash.

I've also tried calling this as C:\windows\syswow64\cscript - with a variable of the path to the vbscript, and using the syswow folder as the START IN folder.

I'm at a loss to know what to try next. There's possibly a typo somewhere along the line, but the scheduled task does run if it's set to run only when I'm logged in - I would hope that this proves the parameters to be correct.

For information, the script calls a program called Snapshot.exe and this creates a volume shadow copy vss type backup to a folder. This will eventually be a network resource but I've reconfigured it to be a local drive location temporarily so that there's no confusion over network credentials.

Any ideas please?

Hi

Is RDS the only way to give 5 people access to an Azure Virtual Machine (Windows 2016)?
0
Hi

In an Azure RDS a number of extra virtual machines are automatically installed as shown in the image. I had only one VM installed prior to the RDS
installation. I am concerned about costs. Will each additional VM cost as much as my original VM?

Hi
I added Azure RDS to my account last night.
I need a simple guide on how to add a user

I have already set up users in my Active directory. Is there a simple way to just connect these users to my RDS?

Hi

I installed RDS last night to give multiple users access to my Azure Windows 2016 VM.
It took almost 2 hours and gave me no indication of costs. Is this normal. Why does Microsoft make setting this up so hard?

Newly released Acronis True Image 2019
Newly released Acronis True Image 2019

In announcing the release of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Acronis True Image 2019, the company revealed that its artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology – stopped more than 200,000 ransomware attacks on 150,000 customers last year.

User profile created by default owner is set to server\administrator instead of that user.  Folder redirection 502 (access denied) as a result.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advanced.

I am (remotely) assisting someone who is replacing a failed Server 2008 computer on a single-server 8-user network.  There is a problem with that is keeping it from getting through POST.  Given the age of the computer it has been decided to replace it with a new Server 2016 Essentials system.

My question has to do with dealing with Active Directory.  I'm wondering whether we should keep the old domain name on the new server and re-join the workstations or if we should go with a new domain name.  It would be convenient if the existing (local) user profiles were preserved.

Suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi

I have a Windows VM on Azure. I installed a an application as Administrator then set up a user
in Computer management. When I log in as the user and double click my application I get the following error:
"Run-time error:'75' Path/File access error"

Have I done something wrong in setting up the user?

Thanks

I am having a problem accessing a remote share, from a windows 10 enterprise system, to a share that resides on a server 2016 machine.  Interestingly enough, I set up another 2016 system which I can access from the same windows 10 machine with no issue.  The system is currently not domain connected and I have tried accessing the hidden share on the d:\ drive of the remote 2016 machine.  I have also shared the drive out to the "Everyone" group with full permissions and I still cannot connect.

From the remote machine, I enter into a windows explorer window \\servername\share, but I never get prompted for a username/password.  Instead I get a window popup stating "Windows cannot access \\servername\share".  The error code is 0x80004005.  

In the event log, on the 2016 server, I am seeing an audit failure, in the Security log, stating "The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this machine"

On the second server, that I installed server 2016 on, I have no problem accessing the share, whether it's the hidden share or the share I set up to Everyone.  

I don't understand why I'm not being prompted to enter my credentials on my Windows 10 machine.  I have also confirmed with others, in my group and they too cannot access any of the shares on the problem 2016 server.

I have looked everywhere under the sun, but cannot find a resolution to this issue.  

Any help is appreciated.

DB2 10.5 LUW on Windows Server 2016

I have a few tables in production that have photos (as BLOBs) in the rows.  I want to archive them to an archive server and I have tried SSIS but it is very slow due to the fact that SSIS has to write the JPEG to disk and then read it in again.

So someone suggested that I could create an export file with DB2, move the file to the archive server, and then use the load utility to import it.

I have been able to get the export to work, but not the import.

Here is what I have for the export.

db2 "EXPORT TO 'C:\EXPORT\TEST.TXT' OF DELL LOBS TO 'C:\EXPORT\LOBS' MODIFIED BY LOBSINFILE SELECT * FROM Photos FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY"

The FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY is for testing since there are millions or records.

When I try to import it I use this.

db2 "IMPORT FROM 'c:\export\test.txt' OF DEL LOBS FROM 'c:\export\lobs\test.txt.001.lob' MODIFIED BY lobsinfile INSERT INTO PHOTO_TEST"

It runs but each row gives me the message...

SQL3229W  The field value in column 3 is invalid.  The row was rejected. Reason code: 1

The columns are
1. ID
2. PHOTO TYPE
3. BLOB of PHOTO
4. LASTTIME

Here is what the test.txt file looks like.

10000002,"JPEG","test.txt.001.lob.0.24442/","2013-10-13-15.40.55.705000"
10000004,"JPEG","test.txt.001.lob.24442.25957/","2013-10-13-15.40.58.112000"
10000006,"JPEG","test.txt.001.lob.50399.26155/","2013-10-13-15.41.00.533000"

I'm using a jump box for my developers to access PostgreSQL database.  The leadership has limited access of 2 users to each Jump box.  It is very difficult to scale that model when all the developers need is secure access (this is on the Azure cloud by the way).  I was thinking about opening up port 5433 as recommended by this article to install pgAdmin.  Does anyone have any pros or cons to this course of action?

Hi

In Azure I set up a user in the Active Directory as shown in the first image below then I assigned a role as "virtual machine user login"
as shown in the second image. When I try to sign in using a remote desktop login I get an error. Have I missed something?

User set up here first

Virtual Machine User Role assigned here

Hi

Is it possible to give a user access to one application on a VM in Azure?
I already created a user and assigned them a role of Virtual Machine User.
Is it possible to further refine this role to one application on the VM?

Hi
I have been looking at Azure Access control. I am trying to assign the role "Virtual Machine User Login"
to a user. I noticed that I can do this by clicking on the resource group or on the virtual machine itself.
I am assuming it is better to do it at the virtual machine level.
Is this how role assignment works? Do you assign roles at different levels?
