Can anyone help me in this?

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?

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)

NEW Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

NEW Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

Backup and recover physical and cloud-based servers and workstations, as well as endpoint devices that belong to remote users. Avoid downtime and data loss quickly and easily for Windows-based physical or public cloud-based workloads!

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.

Hi All, i am consider the new Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 package at a site with two Host servers.

I have a pretty simple question that i cant seem to get an answer for, the Failover procedure is pretty straight forward and easy if i need to take the Source VM offline or its corrupted, my question is this, how do i get the Replicated Target Host VM online in the event hardware failure on the Source Host where Veeam is installed, if the Target Host has failed and i have no access to the Veeam console, how do i get the Replica VM online on the Target Host

I am sure there must be a simple solution, just cant seem to find anything

Thanks in advance

I never really noticed until someone pointed it out that manufacturers don't specify the SATA ratings of their backplanes. I use Intel and Supermicro chassis and can't find the SATA rating. Is there one? As long as it is SATA does it mean it will support 3Gbp/s, 6Gbp/s and 12Gbp/s? The mechanics are good for all three?

Hi All,

2nd time retyping this as I hit the back button :/

I am receiving the following error:
The description for Event ID 32000 from source Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-VMMS cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

History...
I have installed a new server running server 2012r2 on a customers site with a plan to replicate the servers to the new hardware. Switch the live virtual servers from the older hardware to the new hardware.
The 2 Host servers are running MS Server 2012r2
The 4 Virtual Servers are also running server 2012r2 (Two will replicate & two will not)

I was unable to replicate the servers from older host to the new host. So I decided to export then import the 4 virtual servers from the older host to the new host. Worked so all the virtual machines are now running on the new host server.
I then tried replicating from the new host to the older host. Failed again.
I decided to format then reinstall…

Hello,

We are running into issues with having web cameras hooked up to Wyse Terminals.

Has anyone ever successfully got a web camera setup with a Wyse terminal? When the webcam is plugged into the Wyse terminal states usb device not supported behind a high speed hub. I have tried all of the USB ports on the device but nothing seems to work.

We were able to get the device to show up once but video was choppy.

Any Input/Help would be greatly appreciated.

10 Questions to Ask when Buying Backup Software

10 Questions to Ask when Buying Backup Software

Choosing the right backup solution for your organization can be a daunting task. To make the selection process easier, ask solution providers these 10 key questions.

I have an old Dell Precision Workstation T7600 that is not booting or giving any video display.  It is caught in a loop and the diagnostic codes on the front are 3 and 4 together, which according to the owner's manual means a memory power failure has occurred.  

The diagnostic procedure is to remove one DIMM at a time, and I did this with the same result.

Would this situation possibly indicate a power supply issue with that section of the motherboard?

As I have some critical information on this system that needs to be recovered by a deadline, I would be willing to pay for support to resolve this issue and get the system booting.  Unfortunately, getting support from Dell on a system this old will be problematic.  I will spend the two days trying to get Dell to even acknowledge a responsibility to try to help.

What options do I have here, and what are some other troubleshooting steps I could go through?

I have installed 2 different IDM Ultrium-TD3 tape drives and in the 2nd case, I have ALSO installed the lin_tape and lin_taped (daemon).  I also have sg3_utils 1.42, built from source - all this are on x86_64 bit computers.

Many of the commands work, including sg_read_buffer for reading the cartridge memory.

The problem is, commands such as sg_read_attr/sg_write_attr (ioctl 0x8D, 0x8C) whether from a normal C program or from the sg approach, do not ever allow reading or writing the attributes - instead, it leads to an error, such as:

SG_WRITE_ATT_0803 command error: Host_status=0x05 [DID_ABORT]
Error : Write failed (try verbose opt)

I can try either generic /dev devices or /dev/IBM types of devices.  Each gives an error.  In one case, I have an idea for how to try to fix it, but I'm just wondering, is the firmware (mine is 6B20) just not implementing it?  I doubt that's the problem.  I can upload the firmware as hex code but I would like to see the source.

Also, I don't know whether or not running lintape/lintaped matters and whether or not the IBM-generic/IBM-specific/sg-generic drivers are the issue.  I'm trying to pin down what approach to go on next.  There are literally three sets of drivers.  And I don't know whether or not I should install Tivoli.

Given all the variables, I just want to know how to proceed to get to a working sg_read_attr/sg_write_attr command.  I even tried to start with the lowest numbered attribute.

I have also tried external …

I am facing error in CPU validations ( FMA3 is unsupported, MOVBE is unsupported )  while trying to vmotion.
But strangely, some VMs between the same hosts are easily vmotioned.
I checked and found no difference between VMs which are failing and which are passing. both running vm h/w version 11.
Why does it fails on few VMs while others fine  ?  I dont have EVC enabled in any hosts in my environment.  I can't afford downtime of VMs.
I have Esxi 6.0 .   hardware as below :-

HP Proliant BL 460C gen 9
Intel (R) Xeon CPU
and

HP Proliant DL580 Gen 8

Can this machine play pre-recorded DVDs and VCRs?  I connected my device to my Samsung Smart TV with an HDMI cable but cannot figure out how to get it to play DVD movies that I rented. 😢. Please tell me how to do it if possible.
Thanks,
