I've just started playing with Azure and am setting up some VMs.

I just changed a VMs dynamic address to a static address from within the VM or from Within Windows as you would normally. However I've found out this isn't what you do.

My VNET is 172.16.10.0/24. How can I assign 172.16.10.5 to a VM and also not have that IP address assigned via the DHCP server as from what I can see I cannot access the DHCP server to tell it not to.

Thanks for any help.

Hello Experts,

What is the service impact of enabling modern authentication on a non-federated domain/tenant?

Please, elaborate your answer

Consider a hybrid deployment AD On prem / Azure Exchange/Office 365, Azure AD connector to sync to the tenant
0
Hello Experts,

My client runs a hybrid organization with following specs:

On-PREM

Several Windows 2012 R2 DCs
Single-forest/single domain
ADFS internal
WAP servers

All mailboxes in the cloud distributed among to different tenants

Azure AD connector server one for each tenant. Both tenants use same source AD authoritative to sync to the tenant. Some information is synced to Tenant 1, and other information is synced to tenant 2.  

One domain is called companyx.com

For business reasons, they created another UPN suffix that calls for another domain[technically is not a Windows domain],and the name is companyw.com

Azure:

Multiple Windows 2012 R2 DCs
ADFS internal servers [primary server resides in the cloud, secondary internal ADFS servers are on PREM]
Express route between on prem and Azure

The organization uses a domain called companyx.com to sync users/contact/OU to tenant 1, by using AzureADconnectorserver1. This tenant and domain follow the Federated identity model as per link below

https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2014/05/13/choosing-a-sign-in-model-for-office-365/

There are also some OUs /users/ that are also synced to the second tenant for the domain companyw.com.

Moderm Authentication is enabled for the federated domain named companyx.com. The second domain or UPN that also uses same authoritative AD on prem, is not federated for some reason.

Having said that, here are the questions:

For a single forest/domain in a …

I've set up a 2016 WSUS Server and have performed a successful synchronization. I've been testing with one server client (also 2016) just to make sure I can get it working correctly the way I want to before I go edit the Master GPO's on each domain and make this change permanent. The problem is I can't get this client to show in the WSUS Console

Firewalls are off on both server and each machine can ping each other. If I browse to http://WSUSservername I get hit with the IIS web page

When I open the local gpo on the client server, i've edited the correct windowsupdate policy object so that http://WSUSservername is the target WSUS server (I also see this http:// address in the registry)

What is it that i'm missing here? First time setting up WSUS in almost a decade so would appreciate some help! Thanks in advance

Hi

I have been trawling the net to find this but Microsoft don't seem to have put much helpful info up.
Why is there not a simple way in my Azure account to go online and set up a User that can only see and not
edit a View in my SQL database?

Spun up a DC too fast.  Wonder now how to change a DNS Domain name from domain.local to domain.com and also a NetBIOS name.  
Worth the stretch or easier just to wipe and reinstall?

So I didn't select a Desktop Experience while installing Server Standard 2016.   And looks like it installed a Core Edition.  Just a CMD command line.  
Does is mean no Desktop Experience is a Core Experience?

I logged into my SQL Azure database in SSMS and set up a user called AngloUser
I then tried to run the following code to allow access to a table called zPerformanceAnglo
but got the error further on

GRANT SELECT ON schema.zPerformanceAnglo TO [AngloUser]
GO

Open in new window


Cannot find the object 'zPerformanceAnglo', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

Hi there.

I moved a web database app from a standard webhotel with classic asp and MySQL to a dedicated Microsoft server with SQL Server. There is a login page that check the user credentials in a database table in order to proceed. That used to work fine on the standard webhotel.
Now it won't work. I created a user that works fine in SQL Server Management. I used a standard connection string and included it in the login page. The page loads fine, but then the user credentials is submitted, then I just gives a blank page. Nothing to see in F12. I suspect that there may be an issue with some port permissions.
Anyone out there who knows what port that should be open and how to open it? Any  other suggestion to solve this problem?

Best regards

Ulrich

when we upgrade the report to our new server the xml export stopped working.

I've been trying t troubleshoot but since i'm not to familiar with xslt transformations i'm having a hard time finding the problem.

I think the problem is with name spaces.
if i use this code i got from here i can get the entire xml to export
</xsl:template>
    <xsl:template match="node()">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>

but when i try to match a specific node it fails.

my original xml without the transformation comes out like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Within the https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/24541.powershell-bulk-create-ad-users-from-csv-file.aspx#Code_Used webpage which contains instructions on creating a CSV spreadsheet that contains fields such as the user's firstname, lastname, maildomain, etc. what should be entered within the SAM spreadsheet column?

I understand what all of fields need except for the SAM field. What should be entered within the SAM field?

Firstname | Lastname | Maildomain | SAM | OU | Password | Description

User | Test01 | contoso.com | utest01 | OU=Standard Users,OU=Users,DC=domain,DC=loc | P@ssw0rd| Test User

One of the lines of code explains the syntax as " New-ADUser -Name "$Displayname" -DisplayName "$Displayname" -SamAccountName $SAM -UserPrincipalName $UPN -GivenName "$UserFirstname" -Surname "$UserLastname" -Description "$Description" -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString $Password -AsPlainText -Force) -Enabled $true -Path "$OU" -ChangePasswordAtLogon $false –PasswordNeverExpires $true -server domain"

Please provide me with the correct entry that should be used for SAM.

I need to review the DCOM permission on our new 2016 core server. I have read you can view the permission remotely using the DCOM mmc. I was able to connect but list the remove servers as down. I also read that you can manage permission via commandline via a SDK exe.

Has only done this before?

Hi Experts,
I'm having a tough time understanding what the difference is between Dsv3 and Dv3 in the Azure space... what is the difference between the platforms 's' designation... 'V' version info/hardware appears to be the same so not sure what it's representing.

any clarification would be greatly appreciated....

Thanks,

I have to create a second SQL database on an Azure company account. I need to feed certain information from my first database to this new database. I want to give access to a client to this new database but don't want them to go anywhere near the primary database.
