My client had an HP home server running server 2012r2 essentials.
We had serious problems with the hardware and have replaced it. We now have a Dell T180 server running 2016. I thought I would try replication to move the ADDS role over to the new server.
It was a disaster.
My question is now that i have ADDS moved and working, i have noticed that I get event errors related to DFS.

I went through ADSI and removed all references to the HP.
But I still get errors.

So lond story short. Does AD in a stand alone server setup need Dfs?

If not how do you disable it and not get 20 errors an hour.

Good day,

Recently deployed two Dell SonicWall NSA 3600s with High Availability configuration. Between our two sites, our ISP provides us with an MPLS link (primary connection). We also have a VPN connection between the sites.

I would like to have the VPN kick in when the MPLS link goes down.  I have tried to follow SonicWall's guidance, but based on what I've read, the monitoring requires certain information.

I am seeking guidance with implementing this fail-over.  Any guidance will be appreciated.  Network diagram attached.

Hi experts,
I know this is old NAS server but still needs to support due to some reasons.

NAS Configuration
OS :- Windows storage server 2008 - 64
2 hard drive – RAID 1 configuration for OS (Not Backed up - Want to take backup of this HDs)
12 hard drive – RAID 6 configuration for image backup. (Backed up by tape drive)  

I have failure in one Hard drive (internal OS) and RAID-1 is degraded. To change failed HD i have to open server so before that i want to take backup.   Tried Windows server backup utility to take backup but it is failing on Windows SBS Server 2008 Backup fails  with error code 2155348075 (failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '2155348075.) and VSS (volume shadow copy service error)

We have norton backup exec 2010 for tape backup.

Any idea how to take backup of windows server storage 2008 ? latest Acronis ? or how to resolve standard windows backup error ?

I had posted a question about having issues with esx hosts on vlans off a flat network and configuring iscsi from esx 6 to equallogic PS 6000. The conclusion to my issue was that the dell equallogic MEM was not installed and configured. My Equallogics were end of life and Dell will not put them under a support contract so i can gain access to the MEM. Has anyone come across this an know of an alternative or any way Dell will do this or a third-party? Our budget is small and we cannot just purchase a new SAN.
Thanks

I just purchased a new Dell laptop for a customer - booted up fine out of the box, did all of the Windows updates, no problem - rebooted a few times, still no problem.  Turned it off and put away for customer - turned on and get spinning dots on startup.  Ran diagnostics, no issues.  Turned off UEFI secure boot, no difference.  One time after I removed battery and hit power button for 30 sec and replaced battery; I got it to come up to recovery options and tried to reset PC but said it could not do it - any thoughts on what to do?

Hi all,

Really need some help please.  Have a small domain network running on 2012 with less than 10 users set up on it that is running painfully slow for all users.  Even saving a 20K file can take a minute.  600MB folder transfer is reporting as needing about 20 hours.

I have just installed this brand new Dell R430 server, 32GB Ram, Dual Xeon Processors, Perc H710 card with 4 x SAS 10K drives in Raid 5 for the main data partition.  Running Server 2012 R2  as a host server and have created a single VM running 2012 Standard which has been set up as a single domain controller/file share with DHCP and DNS server roles. I made sure I updated all of the Dell drivers on the host before installing the VM and have run all updates on both the host and the VM.  There is a brand new 24 port gigabit unmanaged switch into which the server,  a Watchguard T30W Firewall, a Wireless access point, a Synology NAS device and 4 laptops are all plugged in.

I've checked there are no IP conflicts, get a steady ping to the server at <1ms.  DHCP is working fine and there are no issues accessing websites however everything is so slow.

I've disabled VMQ in the advanced properties of the VM Host NIC and also disabled SMB signing so I know the issue isn't with those.

Would really appreciate any pointers.

Thanks

Hi All,

The following (see attached screenshot) are the updates that have been failing to install on my Dell laptop. – they appear to download ok but when it comes to the installation phase they stall at about 97% and then the whole process of uninstalling starts. It takes about 3 hours to go through this process. There seems to be two that are a problem KB4022715 and KB3126568.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First question... can someone confirm that the Media Creation Tool is for all license types of Windows 10 (Retail, OEM and Volume)?

Second question... If I get a Dell in the door with Windows 10 Professional why can't I use the above Media Creation Tool to wipe out what is on there and re-install from scratch? Why is that illegal?

I push Dell. Dell doesn't supply Windows 10 media like they did with Windows 7. They give you the product key in the BIOS of the computer then you download the "Retail" ISO from Microsoft and install it. Or at least that is the way I have been doing to.

   So where does OEM stand with respect to Windows 10?

Dell OptiPlex 7040, Win 10 Pro

I want to change the TPM password to something I know prior to turning on bitlocker.

I've used the windows interface to change the TPM password, but it wants the original password.  I dont have it, so I cannot reset the password.  Eventually I get a message saying the TPM is protecting itself Dictionary attacks and won't allow changes until after it has timed out.  No one knows what that value is.  So I go through the process of clearing TPM and start over again.

After the TPM has been reset, i try to change the password but get into the same loop about wanting the original password.  Somewhere along the line a secret password is being generated.  I've read somewhere that an intialization process is suppose to take place after I init the TPM using either the BIOS or Windows interface, but that never happens

I've been told that the TPM password is the  admin password, but that doesn't work.

I need help Please and Thank You

Due to budget restraints, we recently purchased 3 Dell R720xd servers for a small VMware cluster. I’ve always purchased Dell Direct but the budget just wasn’t there at this time for new servers. I spent a while looking for a reliable company that specialized in used hardware and found one that was in business for over 20 years and had a decent return & warranty policy.

I received all three servers Friday, visually inspected everything, and racked all equipment. Over the weekend I ran a 48 hour memtest86 running all the cores. I wanted to make sure there were no memory issues and check the heat of the processors to make sure everything was cooling correctly. While no errors were reported on memtest86 and the IDRAC showed health good, I was kind of alarmed on how high the CPU temperatures were getting and how slow the fans were running. What really struck my attention was how high the non-adjustable Warning & Critical Threshold are reporting.

When I look up the processors on the intel website (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 0 @ 2.70GHz) it shows the T Case at 85 C, yet the IDRAC shows warning at 97 C and Critical at 102 C. Now even after a 48 hour test the max the temp a CPU got to was 82 C. During that time though I noticed the fans were only running around 18%. I’m not sure if the fans weren’t speeding up because of the thresholds showing in the IDRAC or if there was a setting I could change in the BIOS. I did see a post where Dell claimed to …

I am attempting to configure a RAID 0+1 configuration on a Dell Precision T3600.  The drives were previously in service and want to wipe them clean and start from fresh.  My objective is to destroy all current partitions and create a new RAID configuration.  How can I accomplish this within the BIOS Setup Configuration?  I thought CTRL I would allow me to accomplish my objective, but I am not getting an option for CTRL I during the boot cycle.

We currently have a Dell Sonic Firewall that is our firewall as well as our company router.  This is our main router for all of our sites in the company.  We have 16.  We implemented through our EMR (Electronic Medical Records) software an upload to a billing company.  They in turn configure and print bills and send them out to our customers.  This has worked fine for over two years.  When this was implemented, we were not required to make any firewall changes at all.

A week ago, the user doing this procedure received an error that the file could not be uploaded.  She called the EMR company, who in their effort to troubleshoot the problem, changed the upload method from ftp to sftp.  She then tried to upload and she got an additional error that port 22 was unable to send.  Seeing that error, the EMR said that the problem has to do with our firewall.  I spoke with the billing company who tried to do a trace route to our external IP.  They were unsuccessful, but I was able to do a trace route to them.  The only caveat is that the user can do this procedure from home with no problem.

I am willing to make firewall changes if necessary, I just don't know what they would be or why it is necessary now, if no one has made any changes other than the upload method from ftp to sftp.

Please help.  I am desperate.

The computer in question is a Dell OptiPlex 390 with Windows 7 SP1.  The "sound card" is Conexant HD Audio

Suddenly, The transcription software will not play through headphones.  Unplug the headphones and it plays through the system speaker.  Everything else plays through the headphones, just not this one program.  

Again, streaming radio, windows sounds, mp3s play to the speakers AND the headphones, if they are plugged in, but the transcription program ONLY plays through the speakers, not the headphones.  

I've tried it on the front and back jacks.

I have a newly built Dell Poweredge T430. Built from the setup disks that came with the system. It is Server 2012R2 and is a file server and running Quickbooks Enterprise. It is running slow and when opening task manager I see windows desktop manager using 25% of the cpu. What could be causing this issue on a new build?
