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.

Cloud Class® Course: Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

I have followed the steps found in the attached document (from pages 263-269) to install the System Center Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM) client software (using the ccmsetup.msi file) by Assigning this software to install using group policy. I have already completed all of the other steps in the rest of this document to properly and completely deploy SCCM 2016 within my Server 2016 domain.

So far this software has installed on several Server 2016 servers but hasn't installed on any of the Server 2016 domain controllers.

What steps can I follow to troubleshoot, determine what is causing this installation to fail, and determine what needs to be done to fix this issue?

I’m wanting to have a true full featured domain controller but it be hosted in Microsoft Cloud.  The default feature set of Azure is not quite there...  As I understand I can spin up a VPC (guess this is a micro VM) that will give me a full featured domain.  This being GPO’s and everything else that comes with an actual domain / domain controller.  Is this possible and at the same time allow remote hosts to log into the domain without a VPN?  My goal is to have the transparency of the public cloud without a VPN but at the same time have a full featured domain.

When I go into the System Center Configuration Center 2016 administration > Updates and Servicing node I am made aware of two updates that are available to be installed.

How can I determine if I can simply install the latest update without first installing the other update?

Hi,

I have a Windows 2016 Server Standard with Hyper-V installed.  I have two VMs:  ADSRV and RDS (Active Directory Server and Remote Desktop Server).  Something happened the other night and now the RDS is in a Saved state.  I've seen this before and I was able to delete the saved state and continue on as usual on another server.  This time, if I try to delete the saved state, I get an error message:  An error occurred while attempting to delete the save state for the selected virtual machine.  RDS failed to turn off.  I've checked the details on the tskmgr and the only vwmp.exe that's running or showing up is the ADSRV.  Microsoft's website said something about deleting .bin and some other file.  I couldn't find those files in the VM folder.  I found the vmcx and vmrs files.  How can get this VM back up out of the saved state?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

I am in the process of configuring System Center 2016 (SCCM) to synchronize and distribute Windows updates on a Server 2016 server.

I noticed that within the "Products" section of the "Add Site System Roles Wizard" there is no selection for Server 2016 and Windows 10.

Server 2016 and Windows 10 are the only updates that I need to synchronize and distribute.

How can I select Server 2016 and Windows 10 (when they don't appear within this list)?

While browsing to the data source for the operating system image within the "Software Library\Operating Systems" section of SystemCenter Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM) I receive an error message that says "The specified UNC path does not contain a valid WIM file or you do not have permission to access it. Specify a valid path."

I get this same error message when trying to point to the WIM files for Windows 10, Server 2016, and Windows 7 operating systems.

What do I need to do to fix this issue so I can successfully point to these OS WIM files?

Hello all,

I'm after a bit of advice please.

I need to rebuild two DC's from 2012 R2 to 2016. I would like to use the same name and IP. (I have used the same IP addresses for DC upgrades before but never the same name). This has always seemed to work well. I know some people are not into using same name and IP's for DC's but if it's gracefully demoted and then repromoted, it should be OK, no?

Can anybody see an issue if I:

Demote DC01, remove it from the domain, shut it down
Wait for replication (Maybe an hour or two)
Build new 2016 server with same name and IP as previous
Promote as DC
Wait for replication

Do the above for DC02.

Any advice would be brilliant.

Thanks

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I have tested the connection of client computers to the System Center 2016 (SCCM) 2016 server by typing in the following URL addresses from the client computers and I then receive the results shown in the screenshots below.

Are these the results I am supposed to receive indicating that everything is set up and working properly or what do the results of this test mean based upon this output?

Hello Experts,

I'm compiling a c sharp program in Visual Studio code (when I say I'm compiling, I mean copying from a site - I'm not a coder)

The code is as follows:

namespace mycsharpmodule4
{
    using System.Collections.Generic;     // for KeyValuePair<>
    using Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Shared; // for TwinCollection
    using Newtonsoft.Json;                // for JsonConvert
    using System;
    using System.IO;
    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
    using System.Runtime.Loader;
    using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Client;
    using Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Client.Transport.Mqtt;
   

    
class MessageBody
{
    public Machine machine {get;set;}
    public Ambient ambient {get; set;}
    public string timeCreated {get; set;}
}
class Machine
{

}
class Ambient
{
   public double temperature {get; set;}
   public int humidity {get; set;}         
}

    }

When I run the code I get the following error:

I Created 1 conf. room in my on premise AD  with a disabled account, it got synced with office 365 through AAD sync

it was created in office 365 as user account, I licensed it and converted to conference room.

I had to change UPN once in on premise directory to correct one but it shows correct when it is converted to room mailbox

but in azure active directory , it shows old UPN,

I got this error

Unable to update this object in Azure Active Directory, because the attribute [userPrincipalName], is not valid. Update the value in your local directory services.

I see correct UPN in on premise AD and matches with UPN  which is in conf room

but I am getting this error message.

2 questions

1) how can I remove license now from this conf room which I initially created by running this command .-Set-Mailbox abc@domain.com-Type Room
 
2) how to get rid of error

Hello experts, I have an office that has grown from 1 office to three offices.  We have approximately 80 users, 60 in the main office, and ten in each of the other offices.   This office is a nonprofit office, so they don't have a lot of funding.  We use a Windows network environment with active directory, and I have folders redirected to each user's "local server".  Each user does have a laptop, and they do frequent the other offices.

Current environment:
a. Active Directory
b. Server at each location (which is a DC and printer server for local pritners)
c. VPN between main office and remote sites (eg. main site to remote 1 and main site to remote 2)
d. redirected folders for Desktop, Documents and Favorites

Questions:
1. Should I put main share folder in the main office and have everyone connect via VPN to the share?
2. Should I put everyone's redirected folders in the main server at the main office?   Note: In the past they will move people from one location to another with little or no notice.
 
Can you provide recommendations of how to maximize performance for the scenario?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Windows 2016 :Required Updates need to be installed

I am logged to windows server 2016, and getting the message: Required Updates need to be installed  [View Updates].
I do not want o install any updates, and I need to log off the server. but everything is locked unless if I click on the "View Updates", however I am afraid if I click on "View Updates", it will install the updates and reboot the server in the middle of the production time.

Anyone out there has experienced the same thing?  and confirmed that clicking on "View Updates" it will not install any updates and it will not reboot the server ?

Thank you

We have a site-2-site VPN setup between onprem and Azure and able to access all Azure resources on our internal network without issue. One of the VM's is a DC which replicates with our onprem DC's. I have noticed sporatic RPC connection errors between the partner DC for replication. The onprem firewall and Azure NSG have all ports open for the VPN connection. When I ping between the onprem DC to Azure and reverse, the average ping times are ~13 - 15ms. It this ok for the site-2-site VPN link? When I run a continues ping for hours at a time and log the result to a files, I do not see any ping drops.

We have a customer, who is requesting a solution that, in our opinion isn't recommended. However, we need to be able to present both sides, hoping that the C level team will realize that solution B is better than A (their original request). My question is primarily how to accomplish this task should they elect to go down this road.

The request and current setup are as follows. Customer has 4 locations, each with their own database. They are wanting to consolidate into a single database. The caveat here is they want to be able to also have local copies of the databases at each location. Their reasoning is: if location A goes down (no internet), they want to still be able to read/write to the database. Once location A comes back online they want to synchronize the data. Same would apply for locations B - D.

We have a better solution in mind, however as previously mentioned we need to at least present the non-recommended solution to the customer. We would prefer to use a 4 node SQL cluster with redundant internet connections, but that's a little off topic I suppose. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Where do I need to go within the Office 365 portal to change which email address Active Directory synchronization errors are sent to?

I have some Active Directory servers used for testing that are currently offline (but will be brought back online later on) that Office 365 is bombarding my primary email address with alerts that these servers are offline.

I need to logon to the Office 365 portal for these test accounts and change the email address that these alerts are being sent to.

Where exactly do I go within the Office 365 portal to change this email address that alerts like this are sent to?
