It is for a entry level server. Windows Server 2016 Standard. 26 users (don't want Essentials LOL!). They don't use SQL or any other data intensive apps. Need maybe 1TB usable storage but let's be safe and say two. So what would you recommend as far a fault tolerance and type of drives in this day and age?

I have a server 2016 RDS deployment and it has one published app on it.  When my users log in, they are required to enter domain\username and I need to get rid of this.  I've seen several fixes on the internet but none of them are working for me for some reason.  

Does anyone know how to get rid of this so users can log in with just their username?  

This is RDS on server 2016.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a clean Server 2016 STD with Desktop Experience (GUI) VM running on Hyper-V (2016).

I want to generalize the VM in order to use it for cloning / distribution (so that I don't have to install the next VM's from scratch).

On Server 2012 one could run sysprep / generalize if I am not mistaken, what is the way to do this on a Server 2016 OS? I guess that it is now done in Powershell, I do recall that it was quite straight forward when I recently studied and wrote my MCSE, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to do it now that I have to physically do it...

Thanks for any assistance.

I have Database.mdb which is a 570 meg file on a Windows Server 2016 shared directory.  

When I drag it to  \\CPUDesk c: drive it takes 10 seconds.  This is a $400 windows 7 proiDell Inspiron 620 desktop that is 6 years old.

When I drag it to a \\CPULap c: drive it takes 50 seconds.  That is a brand new $700 windows 10 pro Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with a fast i7 chip and 8gig memory and a super fast SSD SanDisk x400.

I am shocked that an old cheap desktop is so much faster than the latest technology laptop.

At first I thought it might be a bad Cat 5 cable or switch port, so I swapped the laptop and the desktop and reran the test with the same result.

CPULap has a 1000 gig NIC which is confirmed because the network switch shows two green LEDs.  

Does anybody have any ideas of how I can trouble shoot this?  

rberke.

P.S.  At the risk of giving "Too Much Information", here are some additional facts, to muddle the picture.


I tested the copy on other cpus
*1 year old windows 10 pro laptop ($1300 quad core Lenovo t460p) also took 50 seconds.
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 5 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 4 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 50 seconds


* 2 month old windows 2016 server took 1 second (no surprise, because that copy didn't even go through the switch.)

I am having problems with a new Windows Server 2016 VM.  This server is a print/internal web server.  I have webroot installed on this computer and I also noticed Windows Defender is also active as well.  I have noticed several things that are odd.  For instance, I have an hosted app on this machine that will launch but immediately closes after entering the username and password.  However, on the same machine I installed Firefox and it works fine.  The software provider for this app indicates a 405 error is occurring with IE.  I have the app defined as a trusted site too.  So for now I am using Firefox to logon to the app for now.

We also use Quorum OnQ to backup our hosts.  Since this server has 1.5 million files it took a little while for the initial backup which is normal.  However, performing following backups takes 5 to 6 hours because it has to scan each file to see if changes were made to back them up or not.  So, I enabled QFiltering for this server since this feature will build a database of all the files so that it does not need to scan all files.  Once I enabled QFilter, Windows will not allow the QFilter service to start (Event ID 7000, Service Control Manager with error:  Windows cannot verify the digital signature of this file...  Also, the Qfilter service uses SquirtCopy.

So in order to get a backup of this critical server, I disabled Qfilter and the backup ran last night.  It took about 6 hours to complete.  Early this morning around 5:40am I remotely …

Hello,

i was wondering is someone has any info if this is possible, without first joining Win 7 machine to local domain.
Workplace Join app requires that Win 7 is joined to local domain to be able to join that machine to Azure AD.

So, can Win 7, which is in Workgroup be joined to Azure AD?

PS> Just to be clear when i say Azure AD, I am not talking about VM in Azure running ADDS or something like that, but just simple Azure AD.

Regards,
Ivan.

We have a local non-routable domain mycompany.local environment and all the AD users has additional mycompany.com.au suffix. AD Sync with Office365 is working via Azure AD connector currently.
We own the mycompany.com.au domain. I am planning to user adfs.mycompany.com.au as Federation Service Name
Is there any step by step guide for this scenario? I couldn't find much around the internet.

I have few questions that I couldn't find the answer yet.

Q1. Can I install ADFS on the non-routable server ADFS01.mycompany.local?  if yes, what would be necessary steps to follow?
Q2. Can I install Web Application proxy on the non-routable server ADFS02.mycompany.local and use port forwarding to route traffic from adfs.mycompany.com.au to internal IP address of ADFS02.mycompany.local?
Q3. Can I use domain CA to generate the certification for ADFS to use?  Do I just put both adfs.mycompany.com.au and ADFS01.mycompany.local on the certification?

Any recommendation would be much appreciated.

We have installed two 2016 Essentials servers as a VM to VMware host using the same serial/license number. The DC works just fine but the other one seems to have a "The Non-domain Member Check " problem.

What can we do to solve this forced weekly boot?

The problematic server has these messages at the event viewer:

Hi -
I am setting up my first Server 2016 server.  Doing the initial setup is easy but I am looking for the additional configuration - like sending daily logs and making sure the server is healthy.

Can anyone point to a resource that goes past the initial installation and promoting the server to a Domain Controller?  Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks

I have multiple servers and workstations are windows 10
Server 2008 R2
Server 2012 R2
Server 2016
Windows 10 both 1607 and 1709
When I check for updates, the windows update check comes back saying no updates available .

Yet I'm looking at different websites and it seems the following KB's should be installed , yet I don't seem to find these KB numbers
Windows Server, version 1709 (Server Core Installation)  KB4056892
Windows Server 2016 KB4056890
Windows Server 2012 R2 KB4056898
Windows Server 2008 R2 KB4056897
Windows 10 KB4056892

Maybe they are not being installed, maybe they are.  I'm hoping someone can give me some information on whether or not my servers and workstations are now protected from Meltdown and Spectre and why the updates are not being found when I choose to look for updates.

I am using exchange 2013. There are two mailbox servers which are in DAG. Database is mounted and healthy. All seems good. To configure a DR Site, I created an exchange 2013 on azure cloud and synced one database. When I started second database sync, it got failed saying below error. When I check database status, It shows me "Bad copy count" status is 1. While database is mounted and healthy.

I have my Domain hosted with Azure DNS and it is parked on ns1-03.azure-dns.com, ns2-03.azure-dns.net, ns3-03.azure-dns.org, ns4-03.azure-dns.info

I added all of the Services Records for the domain though at the end it wants me to change the NS Records for the domain. I hit Ignore and when I go back it it says that Domain  has 'Possible service issues'

then lists these errors
record Found:  ns1-03.azure-dns.com, record Expected:  ns1.bdm.microsoftonline.com
record Found:  ns2-03.azure-dns.net, record Expected:  ns2.bdm.microsoftonline.com

record Found:  ns4-03.azure-dns.info, record Expected:  ns4.bdm.microsoftonline.com

Does not seem like I should be changing my DNS to another Server?
I have 4 other Domains and I didn't have to do that. for them.

I need to set up a virtual machine for new software.
I received software CPU requirements:
2 GHz or more
Xeon quad-core server grade processor

I am planning to set up the following:
Windows Server 2016 Standard
Number of virtual sockets: 2
Number of cores per socket: 2
Total number of cores: 4

I am pretty sure that Windows Server 2016 Standard - License comes as a 2-core license at the price of  CAD $1,099.56.
Based on my virtual machine setup mentioned above do I need to purchase 2 of these for the future audits?
Also, if someone has any additional details/advice on current licensing process please let me know. I need to upgrade all of my Windows Server 2008 R2 servers to 2016.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Previous IT set up server 2016 with .com that they didn't own.  Happens to be parent company of franchise, so causing all kinds of DNS issues.

Wanted to rename domain - so ran the random steps.... everything works until I get to random /execute and I get an error message that script failed to execute :3.  

I have searched and cannot find a solution...
