Learn SQL Server Core 2016
LVL 12
Learn SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

We had a problem come to us NETENG where some hows in an Amazon private VPC stopped communicating with an Amazon hosted public elastic IP address. The issue appeared to self-resolve after a time. But the question is - who is one supposed to log and investigate this kind of outage? It seems you'd need to have monitoring within the VPC that was banging against the public IP address/elastic IP all the time at the port/URI intended. Are there any tools built into AWS that would let you monitor availability of an AWS public service from the perspective of EC2 instances in your VPC?

I have a  windows 2016 Datacenter VM created in Azure cloud .  Also I have  some installers uploaded to the  new storage Account I created ( Path is Storage Account -> DemoStorage-Blobs->  dbfile->Installers)  
How can I get the Installers I uploaded into  the VM I created in cloud

I tried the following video for mapping network drive   It maps my demo storage account . But I don't see any file in it
 The video I tried is here

We were recommend spiceworks for our help service desk.  We understand we can have our office staff all connected with no problem.  However, we wanted if any EE with experience with tool can help us in the following:

  • How viable would be to have also some our clients connect to spicework to place ticket-request?
  • If ok to have clients connect, any security issue as to a client can have access to our system?
  • Can spicework used to assign task to a group of users?
  • Finally, can we also include inventory of our tech in the help desk?

Thank you in advance.

I'm assisting with the re-deployment of an online store that gets a few thousand visitors a day, lots of traffic.  The problem is, the current hosting seems to have issues.  We lose DB connection, slow performance, etc.  The store requires a dedicated server.  What are the best hosting options?  Should the hosting be cloud based?

Great day experts,
I hope all is doing well. I was wondering does anyone know of any Cloud labs books or software that would give you a step by step that I can purchase?

We are making the jump to Azure....We currently have a SQL 2008 cluster using physical hardware in a datacenter. The application vendor has stated that they must use a specific version of SQL Server, so “SQL Database” cannot be used as we must have full control over SQL Server updates. Do we need to cluster the Windows server in Azure? I was thinking that Azure offered OS level protection and clustering was not needed.
 
My typical conversation with a fail over clustering (SQL FCI) goes as follows:
  • Do we need hardware level redundancy and protection? (If yes, then SQL FCI is a fit)
  • Do we need operating system level redundancy and protection (If yes, then SQL FCI is a fit)
  • If we have answered no to the above questions, this is not a fit for you as the FCI still has a single point of failure at the DB level.

We have decide to use Azure VPSs. My though was that even if we had a stand-alone SQL instance, Azure should provide protection at the hardware and OS level. I would assume we don’t need to snapshot the 1TB drive that the data and log files will live on, they can just snap the C and E drive where the OS and “Program Files” live. Some sysAdmins did make a comment of “If there is any manual intervention required to restore the OS, then we want to cluster”.

Kindly let me know your thoughts on this please and thank you.

Has anyone had success performing a tenant to tenant migration from SharePoint Online to Office 365?

I have ran across several articles stating that FastTrack for Microsoft doesn't allow tenant to tenant migration.  Other than Metalogix and Sharegate are there other 3rd party tools that others have used with success for migrating SharePoint?

Hi Experts

Could you point a strategy to access a DB that remains at AWS cloud by using Visual FoxPro?

The reason it to reuse an alrealdy developed app to do that.

Thanks in advance!

Hey all, we are getting rid of our on premise DC which has our file server on it as well and move to the cloud completely....the question is how to handle our file server in the cloud.  

I see two options:

1) Use azure files....I know it doesn't have Azure AD integration yet but I am ok with that since you can still do some sort of permissioning.  But is there a way to deploy the mapped drive automatically to Azure AD and/or Intune users?

2) Use a Server 216 server in the cloud and put the file server on it....the problem is that I think it has to be joined to Azure AD-DS...and go over a site2site vpn which would be pretty slow.

Another question that I have is…if we implement Azure AD-DS….and join an Azure VM to Azure AD-DS, does that make Azure AD useless and unusable?

Do we need a site-2-site VPN tunnel between Azure and our offices to use Azure AD-DS?

How would our client desktops/users in the office access the Azure VM and authenticate if Azure AD-DS? Do we have to join the local client machines to Azure AD-DS or will our Azure AD accounts (tied to our O365 accounts) still work?

Hi,

Cisco ACI (SDN) API for integration with cloud management platform, google cloud, AWS or etc for my coming project?

My Explanation for your kind clarification:-
 

1. Uses Cisco CloudCenter Manager user interface or REST API or OpenDaylight APIs (REST) on Northound. Below is the simple diagram and full explanation from Cisco

2. OpenFlow 1.0 / 1.3, OvenVSwitchDB (OVSDB), Netconf/Yang, BGP-LS, PCEP  to programmatically change the configuration of a network device to enable communication on southbound (plug-ins)

3. Network services APIs: Java


Tks.

Hello Experts

I'm trying to follow the example of how to Install and configure Terraform to provision VMs and other infrastructure into Azure using Azure Cloud shell as described here:

The command, az account show --query "{subscriptionId:id, tenantId:tenantId}" provided the subscription id and tenant id.

However, the command, az account show --query "{subscriptionId:id, tenantId:tenantId}" provided the following error:
The subscription of '' doesn't exist in cloud 'AzureCloud'.


Can someone let me know why I'm getting the error?

Thanks

I need to be able to host files(images in this case) on a server, to be read by my ecommerce website.

I would like to be able to control the names of the files and folders.  For instance, I might want to call the image http://www.hostingsite.com/project1/images/book_cover.jpg

An added bonus would be if I could map a local drive letter, like "X:\" to my hosted folder.  I usually use a combination of FTP and Webdrive to achieve this.

Hello,
I am new to dealing with file server systems and hybrid solutions. My company was looking at a dell emc that was going to have functionality that would take files based on rules and push them to the cloud. This would leave a pointer in place so if an end user would ever need to do anything with the file they would not know it was in the cloud, it would just take a bit longer for it to download. Unfortunately this won't work in our position as the emc product would have to be used as a san or as a file server. We are using it for a hybrid approach.
I would like to continue to use aws for our cloud storage, but what is out there to automatically do what we are looking for? I know that you can backup data to the cloud but I would like to keep IT's involvement low as we are a small team for a larger company.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well.  I've been looking at a few Single Sign on services provider. Centrify and Azure to name a few. Any other reliable and easy to setup Single Sign on services with excellent support? I have to add about 12 different cloud apps and wanted to make sure I can find one that perhaps will support us through the implementation process since some of the apps are not common.

Looking for Windows Server cloud solution.  Meaning, want to be able to access file stored on a Windows server remotely (basically from mobile devices).  This would primarily be if we need to access a file to email a client when out of the office, etc.  Not sure what the best solution would be.  We absolutely don't want to sync data to a cloud service.  We want all of our data in-house.  I see two possible scenarios:  1.  if there is a product/solution that we can install directly onto the Windows server that will allow this or 2) a Linux based solution that will provide the cloud based interface for the mobile device to access the data that resides on the Windows server.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Lambda backups via AWS - Currently the backup script in place does the backup perfectly fine however it does not add the label to the snapshot. We would like the backup to place the instance name to the snapshot backup so it is easy to understand. I believe such functionality must exist already as having a snapshot created with no label is not helpful, especially if that instance no longer exists.

Current Script:
import boto3
import collections
import datetime

ec = boto3.client('ec2')

def lambda_handler(event, context):
    reservations = ec.describe_instances(
        Filters=[
            {'Name': 'tag-key', 'Values': ['backup', 'Backup']},
        ]
    ).get(
        'Reservations', []
    )

    instances = [
        i for r in reservations
        for i in r['Instances']
    ]

    print "Found %d instances that need backing up" % len(instances)

    to_tag = collections.defaultdict(list)

    for instance in instances:
        try:
            retention_days = [
                int(t.get('Value')) for t in instance['Tags']
                if t['Key'] == 'Retention'][0]
        except IndexError:
            retention_days = 7

        for dev in instance['BlockDeviceMappings']:
            if dev.get('Ebs', None) is None:
                continue
            vol_id = dev['Ebs']['VolumeId']
            print "Found EBS volume %s on instance %s" % (
                vol_id, instance['InstanceId'])

            snap = ec.create_snapshot(
