We were getting a replace battery pulsating beep and have since purchased a Tripp-Lite Smart1500LCD.  However, there's some UPS curiosities that have come up and I hope to have answered here.  

    Does everyone always replace the UPS unit or do they ever simply replace the battery in the unit?
      The servers were shutting down as if there was a power outage on the APC Smart-UPS SC 1500 but there was no outage.  Why would this happen?
        Tripp-Lite Smart1500LCD has a USB cable for initiating safe shutdown of my ESX Host.  How do I ensure that process works?

        Hi friends,

        I'm in (preemptive !) need for some bootable antivirus rescue disk for offline scanning of Linux systems - preferably a flavour that could be banned onto a bootable USB stick and with good test results ...

        Any recommendations ?

        This morning my PC couldn't start up. It worked normally yesterday but i did a hard shut down (holding the power button) and went to sleep. When i wanted to access the computer today it didn't start up, had BSOD (blue screen of death) right after the windows logo animation was finished. The error was; c000021a (Fatal System Error) The session manager initialization system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc000003a(0x00000000,0x00000000) .
        I tried resetting to Factory setting (by the f8 method) but the screen that popped out offered no Repair option. I'm no tech guy so i'm asking for some help

        Note; The PC is very old around 7 years and I've had recent BSOD issues but not of the same type, once I deleted a file I suspected caused it the issue was gone

        We have had SRM working in vCenter (6.0) for some time. Last night we have to do a reboot of vCenter to clear up some issues, as the Web Client was becoming wholly unresponsive. Upon reboot, the SRM servers in both sites were unresponsive, so the administrator bounced those as well. Coming in this morning, I see that all of the Datastores in our Protection Groups say "Datastore x is not replicated". Have been Googling, but don't see any articles on why it is no longer seeing them, and what we can do to troubleshoot. Would welcome any suggestions.

        I know we have many options to clone a raid 1 on server 2008 r2.  I want to know if Clonezilla live can make a backup image of this on a single drive for recovery purposes only?  Just asking!

        Thanks ahead of time.

        Hi Everyone,

        I am hoping you can help me with this.

        We have several cloud servers and are going to purchase more.

        The hosting company does offer several options for back up.  One of the options is a server in the cloud to manage all of that but it's being stored in the same place?  My management wants to know our options for backing up in the cloud.

        Here is what i don't get.

        In trying to work on disaster recovery here, we are looking at backing up to the cloud, these servers I am trying to get more information on now are already in the cloud, so what is the recommended way that we should be backing up our cloud servers?  I can't back them up to here I don't think.

        I hope that made sense, just didn't know how others are doing it.  

        Thank you,

        Karen

        Please forgive my ignorance, I'm an amateur and have learnt my lesson!!

        I have recently upgraded to OS Sierra and I didn't realise how full my HD was - I hadn't checked in a while and there were no warnings.
         
        Yesterday, I went to use my computer that was in sleep mode and it was really slow, wouldn't shut down or restart, so I saved everything I had open and turned it off using the button. When I tried to turn it back on it got stuck on the loading bar and when I checked it this morning it was stuck on about 80% and wouldn't move. So, I did the dreaded turn off and wait and on again, same result. I then did the command+R to access the disk utility and it would not let me repair (first aid) and it would not let me restore onto the external drive I just bought to back everything up onto (yeah I know I'm so prepared!!). Obviously because the external HD isn't installed, it doesn't recognize it and I tried to install it using the online help in disk utility but the internal HD is too full.
         
        When I tried to repair it, it said 'file system verify or repair failed' and when I tried to back it up it said something to do with the partition map.
         
        Please help! I don't want to do anymore damage!
         
        Thanks in advance.

        I have Windows 2008 and 2012 servers monitored by APC Powerchute with APC UPS's.  For some servers I want to create a Powerchute script that will run on a power out situation and bring down individual VM's.  For the remaining VM's I want HyperV to shut them down.  Is there a way I can mix these two options?  So if I create a Powerchute script to shutdown VM1 and VM2 and in HyperV Automatic Shutdown option choose to have HyperV shutdown VM3 and VM4 the two styles of shutdown will play nice with each other?

        Hello,

        I am looking into a Nutanaix hyperconverged system to replace some ailing DELL PowerEdge servers.  We currently utilize Windows DataCenter 2012 R2, running as our hypervisor and have virtualized all of our servers on this hypervisor.

        The Nutanix solution allows us to continue to run this hyper visor within it's Acropolis O/S.  

        I have some concerns regarding this system, since the hypervisor is now housed on a "foreign" o/s.  I worry that at some point there will be a problem and getting support will be convoluted, because MS would say this is an unsupported environment, and left bouncing back and forth between MS and Nutanix for help.

        Our main goals are to provide fail over for DR.  Initially our thought was to buy new robust servers, continue to run datacenter and look into replication and HA.  A datacenter server housed at separate sites connected with high speed fiber links.  Providing us failover if a hardware failure occurs, or if a site is rendered unusable.  Can I accomplish this with just utilizing MS Datacenter?  A single Nutanix 3-node cluster will provide us with failover in the event of a hardware crash, but would require a completely separate 3-node DR cluster provide failover in the case of a site being rendered unusable.

        I would like to know the answer to the question above, and first hand experience with Nutanix.

        Thank You for your help.

        Hi Team,

        Can someone please help me to provide the steps required to make the standby commserve active if production commserve goes down or in case or DR.

        I have read the advance failover configuration in commvault documentation but didn't understand the DNS configuration part. How the DNS record will automatically update to standby server.

        Regards

        For the past few days, we been getting this error before the backup job finished:
        Backup- \\EXCHSERVER\Microsoft Information Store\Public FolderV-79-57344-4617 - The backup-to-disk folder or the path for staging temporary data on the Backup Exec server must be on an NTFS volume. Do any of the following, and then submit the job again:
        - Create a new backup-to-disk folder on an NTFS volume - Change the location of the current backup-to-disk folder to an NTFS volume - Change the path for staging temporary data. Click Tools, click Options, and then click Backup to change the path.

        I looked at the Backup Exec Settings to see where the temp folder is located and it pointed to E:\Temp which is correct, it should go to the E:\Temp folder on the backup server/main server where backup exec is installed but for some reason, it isn't and giving us the error and the drives are NTFS drives.

        I looked online and read I can add the OnHostTemp registry but not sure if it will create the temp files directly on the Exchange Server or on the main server where the tape drive/backup server is since I seem to be adding the path to the Exchange Server and not the server where backup exec is running so not sure how this registry fix works.

        Anyone seen this error before and know how to fix it? It only happening with our exchange server, our main server isn't giving us the error.

        Hi Experts,

        I am hoping you can help me and I hope this makes sense.

        I work for a small business and have for several years.  Prior to my arrival there were no back ups.  We now currently have almost everything backed up, almost.

        In researching and preparing our next Phase of the disaster recovery plan that I wrote up, it's time to purchase.
        I laid out 4 different options and what we could need, all the options and comparisons and cost.

        Now my superiors want to see how my plan compares to other big companies plans and standards.

        How do I even do this or explain it?  It's different for everyone and no company is the same including ours?

        Thank you,

        Karen
