Installation is the act of making a computer program program ready for execution. Because the process varies programs often come with a specialized program responsible for doing whatever is needed for their installation. Installation may be part of a larger software deployment process. Cross platform installer builders that produce installers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux include InstallAnywhere, InstallBuilder and Install4J. Installers for Microsoft Windows include Windows Installer, InstallShield, and Wise Installation Studio; free installer-authoring tools include NSIS, IzPack, Clickteam, InnoSetup, InstallSimple and WiX. Mac OS X includes Installer, and also includes a separate software updating application.

Greetings of the day :)

I have one Exchange 2013 latest cu that i need do decomission. I need to introduce a new Exchange server before i decomission the old Exchange server.

I have 2 choices as i see it.

1: Install an new Exchange server with the same version and build i the new datacenter.
2: Install Exchange 2016 or 2019 in the new datacenter.

The old and new datacenter are connected via VPN already.

Now, back in the day when i took Exchange basic cource i seem to remeber something about if i introduce a new version of Exchange it will forcefully take over mail flow and i will need to direct mail flow to this server. After the redirect i can move the mailboxes at my own pace.

Does anyone have any input as to adding Exchange 20166 or 2019. AD forrest and domain fuctional levels are okay. Active directory is the same.

I am not planning to go with DAG

Kindly

Whenever I push out WSUS updates to client machines in our organization, the clients recieve the updates and download them, but is requiring user intervention to install them.

In our GPO, we have specifically selected option 4 - "Auto Download and schedule the install"

I have attached a screenshot of our "configure windows update" setting.

If anyone can shine some light upon our issue, I would be eternally greatful.

I am unable to install SCCM client onto computers using client push. All the needed dependencies have been configured properly. Firewall ports, adminshare, GPO, etc.
So i created a test collections consisting of several machines and tried to push the client onto them. Unfortunately, the installation continues to fail. I tried to look at the logs on these machines, but the ccmsetup.exe file is no where to be found. On the SCCM server, all the site and component roles are showing green.  No issues there.
Any idea what I am doing wrong?
I can post the logs from the SCCM server if needs be.

Also, would it better to do this via GPO, instead of client push?

Any help would be appreciated.....

thanks

We have several dozen computers to reimage with Windows 10.

However, they have several customizations that are needed, such as time zone, wallpaper, Edge home page, install Adobe Reader, et cetera.  If we have to do this manually for each computer it is going to be painfully slow.

I know I have "built" a Windows 10 image that is customized with settings such as these as well as installing programs after the installation I just can't seem to recall the name of what I previously used.

Can you please provide some solutions that would work for such a project?  Thanks!

Obviously by my question, all will know that I am Apple illiterate.
I have a client that has a MAC Apple computer and the password no longer works.
I have done the following:
Booted to Recovery Mode
Ran Utilities - Terminal Mode typed resetpassword
Choose user [only one user present, and it is the user I want to change the password for]
enter password for otheruser@iclod.com. [I think this may be an Apple ID]
This is where the problem occurs, The "other user" is no longer with the organization, and has no recollection of ever having created the ID. [I think that this computer was the first Apple that "other user" had anything to do with.

Is there anyway to recover  or revoke or replace the current other user@icloud.com?  Would it make sense to try wipe the computer and start over with a fresh install of the OS?  Obviously any data that may be on the computer is lost if the password cannot be reset.  Can the computer operating system be restored without knowing the information for "other user"

This is using SuSE Enterprise Server 11 with SP3. We wanted to upgrade to SP4. However, we also worry if the existing application and database may not work properly in SP4, and need to revert change. We have both the 11 with SP3 and 11 with SP4 ISO. I know that one way to start the upgrade is, booting the server with this SP4 ISO, and install until complete. After the system reboot, SP4 is there.

Any other method to upgrade? is better if the upgrade allows to revert back to SP3. Does "zypper" support upgrade?

Thanks in advance.

GhostScript Install ErrorI'm stumped.

I have a user on Windows 7, with no local admin rights, able to install Ghostscript on her PC. Her domain account permissions and member group permissions don't have any sort of admin rights either. She used the 64-bit 9.26 version installation : https://github.com/ArtifexSoftware/ghostpdl-downloads/releases/download/gs926/gs926aw64.exe

I noticed she had version 9.09 installed previously so I did this test  on another Windows 7 PC joined to the same domain:

1. I cloned her AD account.
2. Found the oldest version of GhostScript available to download, version 9.18. From my domain admin account on the test PC, I gave that account local admin rights. (using the net localgroup administrator user /add)
3. Logged in with the clone account. I installed GS version 9.18.  Logged out. Switched back to my domain admin account.
4. Removed local admin rights for the cloned account (net localgroup administrator user /delete)
5. Logged back in as the user, tried to install version 9.26,. This failed. Without admin rights, the installer cant write into C:\Program Files. See attached error.

I don't know what else to look for. This has to be something local to her computer as on domain level, I can replicate the error.  I have a CTO looking at me as if I'm to blame for this AD domain I've inherited.

Thoughts?

Spotify is installing with Admin credentials on computers.  Our uers need someone to put in admin credentials anytime they are installing anything, but I saw a user that was able to install Spotify  without admin creds. I uninstalled it and tryed installing again and it sure did not ask for admin credentials. How come?

We are looking at implementing a Shoretel telephone system at one of our remote offices. Today, it only has an internet connection.

We know we need to install a PRI for voice services, but we are being told we need a DVS server for voicemail, administration and call pilot (whether it is on-site or remote). Couple options are being presented to us:

Option 1: Get a windows server and install Shoretel (on site), to be DVS, with a network connection (dedicated for this, separate from the internet mentioned earlier) back to our Head Quarters server (at our datacenter); site to site VPN
Option 2: Same site to site VPN, but DVS in cloud at our datacenter (so it ends up being remote); if site to site VPN goes down, so does the connection to DVS

Question: for a site with no server, what is the best solution (if we are trying to avoid installing a physical server). Is there a Shoretel appliance that can be installed onsite, to incorporate the DVS features? We will still get the site to site VPN, for connection back to Head Quarter server. Ideally, if the StoSVPN goes down, we don't want there to be impact to voicemail and such.

Equipment planning to use:
1x PRI circuit
1x site to site VPN
1x Shoretel T1k
2x Shoregear 50V

User count is up to 10 people (small site)

Recommendations?

Recently purchased MS Office 2019 through the  Microsoft Home Use Program (we are SA subscribers).

Upon attempting to install you are prompted that you must uninstall any older versions of Office prior to installing 2019.  No problem with this except that I have 13 email address in Outlook and a complex folder and rule structure that I would rather not have to rebuild.

Information pertaining to this on the web is conflicting and sketchy.  Some say you must create PSTs prior to uninstall, and then restore the PSTs after the reinstall while others suggest "don't do that" as it can cause problems.

Not sure what the best practice is.  Any suggestions appreciated.

Running Exchange Server 2013 in a single box configuration. I am not an Exchange administrator but, in that person's absence, I foolishly decided to take it upon myself to install a renewed CA certificate that had expired earlier that day. During the process of installing the cert, one or more existing self-signed certificates were deleted by me (don't ask). Now when I try to run Exchange Management Shell, I receive the following error:

New-PSSession : [machine_name.domain.local] Connecting to remote server machine_name.domain.local failed with the following error message :
[ClientAccessServer=MACHINE_NAME,BackEndServer=machine_name.domain.local,RequestId=189b9115-252e-4170-b5ba-e061d0d41790,TimeStamp=3/6/2019 3:14:05 PM] [FailureCategory=Cafe-ReceiveFailure]
For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

Open in new window


For what it's worth, the CA certificate (identical to previous one that worked) is a Multi-Domain SSL cert (from DigiCert) with the following SANS:
- Mail.Domain.com
- Autodiscover.Domain.com
- OWA.Domain.com
- SMTP.Domain.com

Note: In the error message and certificate info above, I have replaced the server name with machine_name and the domain name with domain.

While I'm confident that this problem is entirely certificate configuration related, I can't seem to find the correct configuration that is needed (i.e. what certs go where and how the associated bindings should be configured with what certificate). I have pored over Exchange docs and forum posts concerning certificate configuration but none seems to directly address my stupid actions.

Our mail system is currently dead-in-the-water and any guidance anyone can provide as to how to get things back up-and-running would be sincerely appreciated!

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I  previously had Exchange 2010 (Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard) installed and two domain controllers 2008 and 2016. I have since removed the 2008 DC and 2010 Exchange Server and have a single 2016 controller.

I am currently in the process of installing Exchange 2019 (Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 Cumulative Update) on another box (Windows Server 2019)  but the installation fails on step 8 of 12 (Mailbox role: Mailbox service).

I also get the below as part of the error message:

No RetentionPolicy assigned to E-Discovery arbitration mailbox currently, we need to set it here.
This can be remove after BUG(O15#2555914) is fixed.
I have a single Domain Controller (Windows Server 2016) and the Forest Functional Level set to Windows Server 2016

I am at a road block. Any suggestion to help me move forward?

I have an old asp.net project. in the pre build event in visual studio , there is a call to an exe at the following path, to apply xsl transformation.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\xsltc.exe"

I'm setting up the project for CD/CI. To build the project on bamboo build server, project will be build via msbuild command.

1. I need to install the xsltc. exe. is there a upgraded version of this now?
2. instead calling the exe in  pre build events, is there a way to run this as a part of msbuild events in bamboo?

Have a windows server 2016 which is a hyperv host.   Installed update KB4487006.   After install performed a reboot. When we rebooted the server came up normally.
When we go into windows updates we see that it says requires a reboot to finish installing.   If I check for updates it tries to download the same update.

Can Hybrid Deployment support SSL Bridging ? In my organization i have SSL offloaded to F5 connections are decrypted in F5 and then sent to exchange servers un-encrypted as load balanced. I know Hybrid Deployement requires the connection to be secure all the way to the server level so SSL off loading will not work in my case. I am trying to determine if get rid of ssl offloading to f5 and just install certs on exchange server level, or i can keep ssl offloaded to f5 and then encrypt the connection from f5 to exchange servers.

also when i configured offloading I used the following powershell, by setting the ssflag value to NONE what is its original value in order to reverse the offloading configuration.
Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity MyServer\Rpc* -Externalhostname MyServer.mail.contoso.com -ExternalClientsRequireSsl $True -ExternalClientAuthenticationMethod Basic
    Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity MyServer\Rpc* -SSLOffloading $true
    Set-WebConfigurationProperty -Filter //security/access -name sslflags -Value "None" -PSPath IIS:  -Location "Default Web Site/OWA"
    Set-WebConfigurationProperty -Filter //security/access -name sslflags -Value "None" -PSPath IIS: -Location "Default Web Site/ecp"

Hi,

We have a Ring Video Doorbell 2 which we purchased recently.

Our router that provides WiFi connection is an Eircom F1000 modem.

The plan was to connect the doorbell to our router's WiFi and connect it with our mobile devices.

This worked fine and there was no problem with internet connectivity for the doorbell.

We then went to install this doorbell at the door of our office but found that the doorbell experienced WiFi connectivity problems when we went to do so.

The area seems to have weaker WiFi as it is further away from our router.

What would you recommend we do to resolve this?

Thanks,
Robbie

I was helping someone today (personal user - not a business client), and they wanted to subscribe to MS Office 365 on a brand new clean install of Win10 Home.

I helped them login to their account with Microsoft using their (non Microsoft) email (same account they wanted to use to login to Win10 Home), and then purchase a copy of Office 365 Personal.

All was fine, and their credit card was accepted, and shortly after they got an email confirming.

I then clicked on the 'Install' button from within their MS Account, and they got Office 2013, rather than Office 2019 as I was expecting.

I have no other experience with personal versions of Office subscriptions (all my experience is with business / pro versions of MS software), so I am not sure whether that is right or not, but it seems very odd to be getting a version from six years ago, rather than the latest.

Did I do something wrong, and if so, what did I do that I shouldn't have, and how do I upgrade them to Office 2019?

Thanks,

Alan.
