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.

I have an issue within a Server 2016 AD network where user certificates that have been created by a Server 2016 internal certification authority have installed on the Server 2016 domain controllers but not on the Windows 10 client computers.

I have been following the steps in this website https://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0001399 to implement Always On. This process involves using an internal certification authority to issue certificates.

Within the Server 2016 domain controllers when I examine the Certificates-Local Computer console (by running certlm.msc) I see that the certificate is installed.

Domain controller certificates
However, when I examine the Certificates-Local Computer console (by running certlm.msc) on any of the domain-joined Windows 10 computers there is no "Certificates" folder within the Certificates-Local Computer\Personal store.

Windows 10 comp certificates
What do I need to do to fix this issue so that this certificate will appear within the  Certificates-Local Computer\Personal store on these Windows 10 computers?

SCCM2012. Limited experience. I have created a package and deployed. It has been successfully deployed to all DP's its a simple MSI file. When I created the package I captured both x86 and x64, however when I deployed I pointed the install at x64 thinking that will be sufficient but apparently there are 32 bit machines.

So, I have now gone back into properties of my application and have added another deployment type and created the X64 variant. I then added requirements and associated each of the install with its O/S architecture.

I am now expecting this to go out to the 32bit O/S's but noting appears to be happening? As both MSI files were in the original package I didnt think I will need to update push out this change>?


Probably something obvious im not doing....help appreciated.

Hi Experts

I am moving Exchange 2010 to exchange 2016 (on premise). I have updated domain schema, I have install Unified Communication API.

I installed E2016 and now I am moving mailboxes.

For system mailbox I received warning
The object BUZALKA.local/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/SystemMailbox{532FF86F-C2B9-464C-80E5-B006B924CCA8} has been corrupted or isn't compatible with Microsoft support requirements, and it's in an inconsistent state. The following validation errors happened:Database is mandatory on UserMailbox.

Can you advice what is wrong? How to proceed on?

Many thanks

I have been having nothing but trouble with an install of Office 2016 on a W10 computer. So I tried upgrading to O365 and the problems have only gotten worse. So as a last resort I want to apply the Dell Recovery and start over. My question is how do I deactivate the O365 license so when I am done I can reinstall it back onto this computer.? Are there any videos on how to handle the O365 licensing. After installing Office for 30 years a certain way I found www.office.com to be over complicated and not easy to navigate. Microsoft really needs to hire people and watch us old fools try to learn new tricks. We know what we want to do but everything is moved and the terminology has changed.

Hello

I have a small ssd (PNY CS900 120GB) and a bunch of hard disks (including 2tb, 320gb, and 250gb)

I was looking for a way to install windows on a combination of an ssd and a hdd, i found that stripped set needs identical drives
so i'm thinking of JBOD set of drives, how does it work? will windows detect them as 1 or will treat them as independent drives in setup?

if it doesn't work, is this idea possible? i really need to have a bigger system partition using the existing useless drives

If you ask why? because most of the programs i install don't give the option as where to install the program (an example would be adobe programs which simply start installing to C without asking) which lead to what you're seeing in the following picture
  C.png
I'm asking before because i don't want to lose my windows for nothing, i could afford losing it for something better, but not just reinstall without making progress

Information:
120GB SSD PNY CS900
2TB HDD ST2000DM001-9YN164
320GB HDD ST3320418AS
250GB HDD WDC WD2502ABYS-01B7A0

Hello Experts, I am building an installer and as part of the package, I need to install a H2 db which I want to happen silently when the user clicks Ok. Currently, the user is asked for the path of the H2 database, etc. Is there any way I can pass the defaults as parameters along with the ExecWait command?

	setOutPath $INSTDIR
	
	MessageBox MB_OK \
    "The lightweight H2 Database will be installed which is a prerequisite for the setup."
	File "Installers\h2-setup.exe"
	ExecWait '"$INSTDIR\h2-setup.exe"'	$0

I installed dietpi today on a Zero w. (did it on a 3B+ and setup as Hotspot no problem). I wanted to setup the zero as a webcam.
I did this 4 times before I started to install or change the configuration and reboot at least 2 times to make sure all was good.
I changed the setup to US. connected to the Wi-Fi.
Updated to the latest version of dietpi. Update the firmware.
Changed drop bear to ssh.
installed REALVNC.
But when I Install RPI WEB CAM it keeps rebooting and I can't stop it.
As I said after the 3rd time I flashed a fresh image again and rebooted at least 2 times after each change or install until I got to the RPI Web CAM issue.
I get "You're in emergency mode. Enter root password for maintenance or CTRL D.
I tried dietpi for the password and root. CTRL D does nothing but reboot back to the same area.
I'm assuming there is am issue with RPI Web Cam.
And Yes I made sure the power supply is good. I replaced the power supply with one used on my Pi3B+. It's 5.2V, 3amps.
I even tested it with my voltmeter. The issue is this pi Zero W setup works fine with a full version of Raspian and the RPI WEB CAM version I had to manually configure. I switched back to that card and all is fine. I just like the small footprint and ease of setup with DietPi. And it only starts to reboot when I add in the Web Cam distro on DietPi. I even tried some other packages after my 4th attempt, on the card, flashed a new image. In fact I added a few distros to the DietPi setup …

According to this thread:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29112009/Windows-Storage-and-datastore-with-ESXi.html

I tried to use NX3100 as NFS datastore, but performances were absolutely not good..
It seems it is difficult to use iSCSI, too.

So, I wondering if a better solution could be to directly install ESXi on Dell NX3100.
Is it supported? If so, which is latest ESXi version I can use?



Thank you

Experts, I am currently looking for a free Install package builder for windows. I am delivering a small project to a non-technical team and for them to run the framework, they need to do the following

1) Download and Install a H2 Database
2) Copy a few jars to a lib folder already residing in c:\Program Files\<Application Name\lib
3) Run a few queries to construct tables in H2 DB

Please let me know if you have any suggestions (from your experience) for a simple free tool that can help me package the above.

I have server and backup drive that got hit with Globeimposter 2.0 via brute force remote desktop attack. Nothing is salvageable but I can still access Active Directory users. Is there anyway to export, manually backup critical files to recover active directory in a new install?

Hi,

I am attempting to update my Wordpress website but am having issues. Firstly when I go to the Updates page it doesn't actually give me the option to update from the Dashboard.

http://prntscr.com/kcpqs9
http://prntscr.com/kcpqxw

I'm currently on a very old version. I tried to update manually from File Manager by copy the wp-admin and wp-includes from a fresh Wordpress install but when I do that I just get a white screen of death (with no errors reported).

Any idea why my site is crashing like this?

Any input would be much appreciated - otherwise I will just try to setup a new WP install and start copying files over and see if that works.

Thanks

Hi Experts, I want to buy a wireless access point to connect to my router, such that I can use wifi at home.
I have an internet cable coming out of a hole on a wall, and I feel that it will be easy for me to install an ceiling access point to the wall, such that I can also cover the hole. The ceiling access point I am looking at is like:

https://www.amazon.ca/KuWFi-Wireless-Access-Ceiling-System/dp/B06XTKJWRM/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1532759982&sr=1-4&keywords=POE+access+point&refinements=p_85%3A5690392011
 
However, I realize that if I do this, the orientation of the access point device will change from horizontal to vertical, and the antenna inside (if there is any) will also be different from the normal orientation. My questions: will this influence the coverage of the signal?


Thank you!

I want to demote a DC which holds Enterprise root CA and install a new DC with same name and ip.  I guess i have to remove CA prior to demote.
We do not have standalone/sub cert CAs.
Computers use trusted root cert issued by this root CA. Will i have problem of joining new computer to promote as DC in the absence of root CA?
or AD has published trusted cert and will not have an issue even if i do not have CA online ?
I would appreciate your advice on this.

I have a Server 2008 R2 that is fully updated.  I am trying to install SQL Server 2014 Express but it keeps telling me that the OS does not meet the minimum specifications.  I did make sure that the .Net 3.5 SP1 was installed.  It took me a while to find the correct patch but it said it was already installed from the MS updates.  According to SQL Express 2014 it is compatible with Server 2008 R2 so it should work.  It would be nice if MS was a little more verbose and let me know what is missing.

I am working to reassign a laptop from one user to another.
I ran through my typical setup tasks (including using windows recovery to rest the machine & installing windows updates) but when I tried to install Cisco AnyConnect VPN client, I got an error.
"Installer information. There is a problem with this windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor"

I have spent days trying to troubleshoot...what I know is that it isn't the installation file itself that is the issue because I was able to install it on another machine as part of my troubleshooting.
the only issue that I can find is that the vpnva display name in the registry is incorrect [@oem29.inf,%VPNVA64_Desc%;Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Virtual Miniport Adapter for Windows x64] . I am able to correct it but it reverts every time I try to reinstall cisco.

the machine is an Hewlett-Packard HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC running windows 10.

please let me know if there is any additional information that could be helpful.

I have a test server running 2012r2.  I am using it to learn configurations for my 70-410 certification. It's a clean installation. I can not get client computers to connect to the domain. I get this error:
Make sure client can reach DNS server.

This is what I have configured:

Server configured as domain controller
Active directory role installed
DNS role installed
Domain controller and DNS server have the same IP address 192.168.5.7
DHCP role installed
DHCP scope options 15 & 6


I can ping the domain controller from the client computer
 I can ping the domain controller with the machine name from the client computer
When I ping the the domain controller with the -a switch from the client computer, it returns the fully qualified domain name of the server.
When I run nslookup from the client computer, it resolves the FQDN and the IP address of the the DNS server.

https://theitbros.com/install-and-configure-dns-server-on-windows-server-2012/

The above link is a tutorial about installing and configuring DNS.
In this tutorial after the DNS role is installed, only the machine name is visible on the left hand side. He then configures the primary zone, then the forward lookup zone, and then the A record.
On my test server, I installed active directory before the DNS role.  When I install the DNS role, it looks like the system is installing the forward lookup zone automatically.  Is this normal for the system to configure the forward lookup zone …
