Hi,

What should match on Kingston RAM labels when adding extra RAM ( revision number, part number...)? ...not in a kit.

hello
I am trying to sVmotion a VM with multiple disks, no snapshots and all vmdk's are on the same datastore. the sVmotion keeps failing, I have been able to move other VMs off the old SAN on to the new one however this one keeps failing, I have tried sVmotioning it to another datastore on the same SAN which also fails, I have restarted the management agents on all hosts in the cluster but still not working, I have also powered off the VM and tried sVmotion which also failed. my next step would be to try a folder move with the VM powered off and removed from inventory and if that failed would try cloning the VM to the new SAN and then using the clone a the live. does anyone have any ideas what else I could try please? see below log

cheers
Bill

I have trouble getting the drive to install properly with a IRISScan Pro 4 on Window 7. I am running Windows under Parallels on a Mac El Capitan. But, that should not matter.

What steps can I follow to first get the program to install correctly?

Thanks.

I have successfully installed Windows XP Profession on an HP computer (p7-1410 desktop) - wonderful learning curve! A senior client panicked when his computer died!

I have been able to download most important drivers (the computer came installed with Windows 8) for the hardware except for the DVD Writer Model SH-216 (HP model: XH-216BB/HPTHF).

I have searched and have had no luck. HP does not supply drivers for XP.

Suggestions? Help!

Greetings everyone,
                                       I'm looking to for laptops to be used in a classroom setting for children at the K12 level and younger. Chromebooks are attractive but not looking at them at the moment, so sticking with Windows.  I was looking at the Lenovo N24 as a great example of specs and price,  Lenovo

Not wanting to purchase from Lenovo directly, does anyone know any company that specializes in providing educational products and services. e.g  TKO Education

Thank you kindly.

Hello,

I have Vmware horizon view 7.0 virtual environment and many cloud customers are complaining that in most cases the printers are there when they initially connect (in some cases they are not there but its small like 2-4 % of time) but after a while when they goto print there are no printers or there is only one printer when there should be 2 or 3. it is an odd problem and hard to troubleshoot!

Horizon agent version is 7.2

As a work around I have been telling users to save all work and log off the cloud PC and then log back on. This usually restores all printers (about 95%) of the time. But this is not a real solution and very frustrating for the user to have to close all open doc/programs just to print a document/email!

Anyone got any ideas how to resolve/refresh printers?

Hi,
I need your help to identify the LCD screen on Thinkpad T410.
The type of T410 is 2522-DM9 or Product ID: 2522DM9.
The screen is broken and I want to order a new one, cheap from Asia.
I do not want to open the screen now and I cannot see anything on display. I cannot connect it to an external monitor.
I can find on eBay some parts and with Lenovo technical support I could probably find FRU:
https://support.lenovo.com/de/en/solutions/migr-74566
But in the past, I remember, the display was a Samsung type, don’t remember now the model.
Some of them are with 30pins, some with 40 pins, some WXGA and some WXGA+, different resolutions.
I would like to identify properly the Samsung type and buy cheap on Alibaba or Aliexpress or Taobao.
For example: 1, 2, 3.

Can you help to identify the proper Samsung type, the LCD model for the Thinkpad T410 2522-DM9?

Hi everyone, Im learning and testing nfc cards.

I'm trying to know how works my university transport card, so I dumped it with 6 travels, then I waste one and dump with 5. The same with 4 travels.

I located the sector and the block of this sector that change, but I dont see the relation! Maybe you can help me

The block with 6 travels:
81 A8 1E 00   06 9E 1F 4E   DC 51 EF 30   02 60 20 C3

The block with 5 travels (I waste one to see this)
81 A8 1E 00   05 1E 1F 62   5C 12 B1 10   00 78 40 8C

And the block with 4 travels (wate another one):
81 A8 1E 00   04 1E 1F 62   5C C2 06 11   00 78 60 7C

Here are all to compare it better:
81 A8 1E 00   06 9E 1F 4E   DC 51 EF 30   02 60 20 C3
81 A8 1E 00   05 1E 1F 62   5C 12 B1 10   00 78 40 8C
81 A8 1E 00   04 1E 1F 62   5C C2 06 11   00 78 60 7C

Thanks a lot

I have a AMD FX 9590 on a gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5 motherboard running Windows 10 pro and it keeps freezing on me when I check the event log there are loads of corrected hardware errors processor core events and I cant figure out how to resolve them. The machine is only 6 months old. The bios is updated I never over clock it or mess with the bios in any way and my power supply is a 1000 watt corsair

I also have a full tower thermaltake case with a liquid thermaltake cpu unit and 4 large fans but home very dusty and so it runs hot
PLEASE somebody help!! I have read that it could be a voltage issue but don't have a clue what to do

Hi

I want to setup my HP Z230 workstation to boot from network only and if it fails to boot then it must restart.

My boot options are Legacy Boot is enabled with only Network Controller enabled and Hard Drive or other options are disabled.

When I try to boot it does try to boot from network but rather restarting stops at following:
Non-system disk or disk error
Replace and strike any key when ready

Please help

on a browser I can click "ok" button to donate my cpu for bitcoin mining.
When I press "ok" my computer gets slow.

Windows defender did not detect this a virus

So I think I could be donating my cpu by keeping a browser window open
any website can be taking my cpu for bitcoin mining without an "ok" button

I keep many browser windows open
On windows 10 control panel can I block browser from taking cpu for bitcoin mining?
Please dont tell me it is a virus and to check for other viruses
Maybe I can just use a non admin regular windows user to ban cpu usage from my browser

We have two Dell Rx730 PowerEdge servers (256 GB Ram and 14 X 8 TB drives for database and logs) for Exchange 2016. We are going to make a DAG of these two Exchange servers. Is there any specific requirements such as RAM, CPU and Hard Drive for Witness server?

We have an R720 that we virtualised a physical server onto, and we are seeing really poor ram performance when running 2x CPU's, but if we remove a CPU and run just one, we seem to be getting close to the expected speeds.

This is an ESXI 5.5 machine, but we also loaded Windows 7 directly onto the server aswell and observed the same performance drop when running 2 CPU's For example if we run a benchmark on the RAM speed, with 2 CPU's we will score about 6000, then on 1 CPU we will score 9000, exact same type of ram, just running 1 CPU.

We have tried all different types of ram, 8500R 10800R and 12800R, the performance increase is marginal.

We only use identical RAM sticks (same size, brand and rank). We have tried filling all RAM slots and only filling 1 ram slot for each CPU. Still the same performance drop when using 2 CPU's.

Is this normal?

Hi

I have built my own PC using hardware, all is working except for the RAM. I have 2x 8Gb sticks of RAM, 8GB Corsair DDR3 XMS3 PC3-12800. When I check the machine information, it is listed as RAM; 16Gb (7.8Gb Usable).

After doing some research online, I changed the advanced boot settings to use the maximum memory but the settings do appear to be applying and are reset to default after a reboot. I change the page file settings to manual.

OS: Windows 10 Pro
Motherboard: ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA
Processor: AMD FX 6300 Processor
HDD: 1TB WD WD10EZEX SATA 3 HDD
Graphics card: AMD radeon 5700

All updates have been applied and the BIOS is up to date.

Why would the advanced boot settings not apply?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So we have Linux 6.5 Server and when ever I SSH into it from a workstation to view the audit logs my UID is attached to someone else that is logged in (SSH) AUID.

I understand that the AUID is the Audited User ID and UID is the user ID.  So if I login as MikeP my AUID and UID should be MikeP and if I, from that log  in should ssh to a different machine using different credentials that the AUID stays the same but the UD changes to the new credentials.

So if MIkeP ssh to another workstation as Mike-local then the AUID should stay MikeP and the UID now becomes Mike-local.  

However, for us that is not happening.  The AUID is selecting who ever is attached to the system when we SSH or login locally.

Has anyone experienced this before and what could be causing it?

Thanks,
john

Dear Experts,

Need an advise on BGP along with traffic engineering. We have a simple setup with two ISP links and we have done a simple BGP peering using eBGP with both the ISP's so that if one fails the other one takes over.

Now my question we need to do a further BGP peering with one of a customer who would need us to allocate few subnets and want to publish their subnet via peering. Also we have a new requirement of controlling the bandwidth allocated by per subnet or per IP address and also meter the data consumption.

What is the best way to achieve this? Any overall architecture recommendation along with hardware we might need for this. We also have the requirement to do any changes without any downtime.

Thank you in advance
Best Regards
