Hi,

I have a Cisco Air-Lap1042N-E-K90 access point but when I try to do a factory reset of this AP so I can configure it there is no option for conf t

I have followed the reset procedure and unplugged and pressed and held the mode button and the AP goes through it's startup until the LED goes to solid red,  At this point I release the mode button, The LED initially blinks green, then goes to blinking red and then continues onto blinking amber and then seems to stick in this loop after this stage I can ping the ip assigned when I connect an Ethernet cable but I still can't even login on my browser or conf t into it at CLI level either.

Is there something I'm missing here as I'm not fully conversant in cisco.?

Any help would be grateful
thanks

I am having an issue with my monitor and Adobe products in general.  I realize it is probably the software and probably is related to other products as well but some are working and others are not.  The issue is that I have a USB-C port on a new Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook.  I have it extended to a USB hub with 3 USB 2.0 ports.  One port is plugged into a Dell 27 in monitor with resolution of 1920 x 1800, The Dell Ultrabook is set to 3200 x 1800.  The Dell Ultrabook screen looks fine.  The Dell 27 in monitor looks bad with some programs. It looks like it's really displaying at 800 x 600.  The program screen is way too big.  It needs to be sharper and smaller so it looks like the Dell Ultrabook screen.  I have read that there is an issue with Adobe where the program tells the computer it's a size it's not.  Can anyone assist?

We have an APC SURT5000XLI UPS that will not power up.

It just has an illuminated Fault LED, and the 3rd and 4th Battery Level LEDs on. See embedded image.

Can anyone translate what its trying to say? I can't find a fault finding guide anywhere, other than 'engineer required'. Such an engineer scratched his head, and said it needed replacing...

Thanks

I have a program that our organization uses to collect reports and recently the GSM modem has been unable to receive or send SMS messages. All AT+CPIN= codes return ERROR. AT will still return OK. When I configure the modem, it looks like this.
AT+CMGL=4
ERROR
AT
OK
ATE0
OK
AT+CPIN="****"
ERROR
AT+CMGF=0
OK
AT+CNMI=0,0,0,0
OK
AT+CMGL=4
OK
How do I fix this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Just upgraded the memory in a Dell Latitude E6410 from 4GB to 8GB.  The process was simple and the machine recognizes the new memory size in the early stages of power on.  But the O/S (Windows 10) eventually returns an error and offers an F2 or F5 option.  After allegedly trying to repair itself, it will not continue.

If I go back to the original memory (4GB) all is fine causing me to surmise that the problem is :
a) the new memory - bought it from a very reputable shop and they selected it for me based on my machine description, or
b) a configuration setting which I cannot find

Any insights would be much appreciated.   I have studied the process through several on line videos and sites.  They all looked simple BUT they all worked.  Thanks.

We are trying to migrate vms to new servers that we added to our virtual center. When we try to migrate we get the error about hardware features not available. The vms with the issue are running version 8 so they need to be upgraded.
So what I am looking at is powering off each vm and the upgrade the hardware on each vm and the power them back on..
Is this the only way to do this or is there another way I can do this without having to power off each vm?

On Demand Webinar - Networking for the Cloud Era

This webinar discusses:
-Common barriers companies experience when moving to the cloud
-How SD-WAN changes the way we look at networks
-Best practices customers should employ moving forward with cloud migration
-What happens behind the scenes of SteelConnect’s one-click button

Hello,

I wanted to get advise on possible methods for migrating VMware estate from existing infrastructure to new one. That includes migrating from IBM servers to new Dell blades and from older to a new SAN. I am looking for the simplest, least risky and most cost effective method. There are a few physical server, that need to be migrated.

This will be for two data centers that are 30 miles apart.


Regards,

The installer is long gone, and did not leave us the password for the DVR. We had a break in and need to review the video, as well as make copies for the police and insurance. Is there a way to get to the recordings without resetting the system?

I'm looking to buy a new laptop. I want it to be light and to use for .Net development. It needs to be light.

On my current laptop, I have:  VS 2013 and VS2015 (community), SQL 2014 and SQL 2016 (developer editions)

1. No Toshiba. I already have one and don't like it. It's not for development.  I got it maybe 4 yrs ago.

2. I have a gaming laptop. It's MSI but it's so heavy and running out of disk space when I installed SQL 2016.

3. At work, we have Dell laptops. Seems like a good laptop but screen is too small. At my previous job, my coworker had Surface but again, the screen was too small. I think 15 inch screen would be good.

4. I know I need SSD and i7 processor
Is this a good one? Any recommendations?
Dell Latitude E7470 Business Ultrabook 14 Inch i7-6600U 16GB DDR4 Windows 10 Pro (256G)

I was just reading Andrew Leniart's entertaining tale of dealing with a client's network connection issue. (Go check it out... I'll wait...)

Ok, cool, now that you've read it, I'm sure it's something many of you have encountered—user says that they restarted something, but clearly they didn't. Made me think that in the current era where smartphones with cameras are so ubiquitous, a way to verify that the device in question actually had power would be to have the client take a photo of it and send that to you. Then you could know if A.) they were looking at the right device and B.) the power lights were really on.

Think it'd work? You ever try anything like that? Oh, and if you've got a similar SysAdmin tale, be sure to go comment on that same post!

Hey,

I have a Gigabyte GA-P67-DS3-B3 which doesn't work anymore. I tried replacing it with the same kind of motherboard but there's no where to buy one. My question is, can I buy a different and better motherboard than GA-P67-DS3-B3 that works on a 2nd generation i7 processor? Also, could you recommend me any compatibility motherboards to buy?

Hello everyone,
I have a few Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and a couple of them run really hot.  It usually happens when starting up for the first time that the Surface Pro 4 will run hot and the fan is running constantly for about 20-30 minutes.  Then it seems to regulate and operate normally.
Should this be happening?  Is it possibly hardware or software driven?
Nothing really shows up in the event logs that stands out.

Just got a new ZBOOK G4 and i added my old sata HHD (that was on my old ZBOOK) but somehow the HHD is not detected in the BIOS ... is there anything special we need to do on the hardware in order for the second drive to work ... (other than placing the HHD in the caddy and place the drive inside the laptop of course)

Hi all I know this isn't so much an technical IT question as such but I have a Honeywell CT50 mobile device that was shipped with a USB charging dock for a PC/Laptop.

I have found over the years that computer USB ports are slower to charge than wall sockets plus they stop charging once the computer is off anyway and these devices can take 6 hours to charge.

Am I right by thinking they will charge faster if I use a USB wall socket plug and what rating plug would get me the optimal charging times?

On the back of the device it says 5V --- 2A.

And I have a USB plug which is 5V --- 1A

Am I best to get an exact match of what the device sticker says or can I get a higher rating?

The hard drive is from an NVR (Network Video Recorder) and the manufacturer indicates that the drive is handled as UBS - Uniview Block Storage.  The drive has been pulled from the NVR and works properly in another (same model) NVR, but I'm looking to access the drive on a desktop computer in order to pull files stored on the drive...  This is a SATA (8TB) drive...

Anyone have any advice on potential ways to mount this device in Linux or other O/S that might allow me to access these files, or other meaningful suggestions?  Thanks in advance.
