Good morning,

I am facing this situation this morning:
Exchange 2016 CU9 on Windows Server 2016 running without issues.
Reboot last night.  2 Updates were installed to Windows:  KB4516044 and KB4512574.  No errors logged.
After reboot, all exchange services were deactivated.

Somebody installed CU13 to the machine, which stalled halfway through.  I reactivated all exchange services, started them all, and they all started, but after another reboot of the machine all services were deactivated again without any further installations.  
Now, after any new reboot, all exchange services are deactivated once more.

If I retry CU13, it greets me with incomplete installation and wants to continue, but stalls at step 4/11:  Transport service.
It sais that it could not restart the Exchange Service Host (because after setup starts, the service is once more deactivated, but STILL RUNNING

I think something other than the CU13-Installation is deactivating the services.

What to do?

I am upgrading several of our districts admin computers and am installing PCIe Internal NVME M.2 Drives directly to the motherboards.  In the past I created an image and then duplicated the drives to install into other systems so that I didn't have to manually install and configure each and every system.  I just had to re-enter the Microsoft License Key for the OS and Office suite.  Does anyone know of a way to duplicate these drives?  I used a 14 port Kangaroo unit to duplicate SATA drives for my older system.......just wondering if there is a piece of hardware out there that can do the same thing to the PCIe M.2 drives.  I tried using an M.2 to SATA adapter but my duplicator errored out each time stating it couldn't find a Source drive.

hi guys

I have an EC2 AWS instance running apache. We previously bought SSL certificates and had them installed. They have now expired. We renewed them with Godaddy.

I want to install them on the server, but I can't seem to find the location where they need to go. One of our techies who has left may have played with the http.conf file but I am unable to work this out.

Can someone give advice on how to work on this?

Thank you

Hello Experts,
One of our remaining legacy apps uses mysql server
and mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.10-win32

It works just fine and we do not plan to develop a new app until other more
important projects are finished.

The fact is our customer replaced his server for some reason and
it works with vmware.

And now our app has lost a lot of speed since last friday.

I understand the new installation is a mirror of the older server.
But then our app has lost speed around 30% only when making queries.

Question1: mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.10-win32 is this a good ODBC or is it too old?
Question2: What configuration should I request in the VM so the company in charge of hardware can configure properly.
What else should I check given the fact that this app is still very useful and we do not plan to replace i until 2020.

Regards,

We have many HP 840 G3 EliteBook laptops that are failing SCCM with a red screen. These have been reimaged several times each and still fail.
Our sccm guys say to reimage it and it should work. 4 times? Maybe someone can advise as to what log files I should be looking at.

I am not the sccm admin but we do have access to most of the logs. Thanks in advance.

The installation has failed.  You do not have a supported version of Outlook installed.

Magento 2.3.2 install.
I have installed Magento 2.x many times before.  However, this time around, after the install I cannot get the admin (Backend) to work.  I just get a 404 error everytime.  I have checked for server rewrites and they are enabled.  There is a .htaccess file in the root folder.  Not sure what might be going on.
Any ideas?

Hi EE'ers,

I'm looking for the best remote support software.  Basically something like GoToAssist, but maybe cheaper?  I'm looking for something that the far side can just bring up a browser or similar, and not have to manually download and install software (like TeamViewer) for me to be able to pin up the remote session.  Thanks in advance!

I have to install a new SSD drive with a new Win10 OS on 12 laptops.  Is there a way to create a bootable USB drive that has the Win10 with all the software preloaded on the initial install such as Office software, Adobe, etc...


Is there a free way to setup this USB the way I want it so that I can just install the "image" as I put them together?

Can a Lenovo Centre M 5032 AF8 desktop PC support a nvme to pcie adapter card with an nvme m.2 ssd ?

I would like to install an nvme to pcie apdapter into this desktop, and then install nmve M.2 SSD in the adapter.
The nvme ssd would be used only for database storage.
I am not interested in booting up from this device.
I have upgraded the bios in this desktop to the latest bios version.
Before I buy an nvme m.2 SSD, I would like to know if this desktop will be able to support an nvme m.2 ssd.
The desktop has a 64 bit version of Windows 7 installed on it at this time.
All thoughts appreciated.    Thanks, Jim

I am doing a clean install of Windows 10 on a PC that had Windows 7 and was infected with a virus (crashed the PC and currently boots to "no OS found."  I booted from the Windows 10 media in the CD drive and have a question regarding the question “Where do you want to install Windows?”  I have only one partition listed and wanted to know if it is ok to select “Format” before I install the OS.  I have a SSD drive.  Just wanted to confirm it is ok to select format on a SSD drive.  Thank you.

Sysprep on UEFI after installation of all applications.

After testing applications to be working, I have created an image with sysprep.
After the image is created and deployed to the 1st Test machine, I received the error:

"The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.

File: \windows\system32\winload.efi  "

After researching several articles, I came across one that appeared to fix this issue..
https://appuals.com/steps-to-fix-winload-efi-error-0xc0000001/   (Method 3 seemed to correct this issue)

Once this was done, it booted past this issue and went into the error
"Windows could not finish configuring the system. To attempt to resume configuration, restart the computer."

From what I have read, I maybe should have put the os in Audit mode before installing the applications?
But, it took a little time in getting all this built, so I am wondering if I need to put it in Audit mode post installation of software then sysprep?

Or, if anyone can shed any light on these issues if they have seen this?

I followed the instructions to create an offline network installer for Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise.  I have tried everything I can think of to get it to install from that cache, but it just keeps using the downloader.  The command I am running is:

vs_enterprise__142530824.1536088995.exe --all --quiet --wait --norestart

The instructions mentioned something about using the layout, but the install layout command doesn't actually seem to have an installer which is super odd.  Just looks the same as the command to create the offline cache.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated so I can stop downloading 50gb of data for each client install.  Thank you!

Windows Server 2016 IPAM installation.

I'm running this command to create the GPO's:

Invoke-IpamGpoProvisioning -Domain <MY_DOMAIN> -DomainController <DC_NAME> -IpamServerFqdn <IPAM_FQDN> -GpoPrefixName IPAM

Open in new window


Error message: Invoke-IpamGpoProvisioning : Failed to create GPO. Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005

I notice it created two of the three GPO's, but did not create any settings. How can I get more information on where it's failing? I've tried running it under my domain admin account, and also as the actual domain\administrator account, and I get the same result.

Objective:      Open the Informix Demo (dbaccessdemo) database using Microsoft Access
Problem:      I have done the basic install & configuration, but I am not able to “connect”
Setup:            My Informix Server is a Windows 10 Pro, Intel i5-4570, 16 Gb RAM, 128 Gb SSD
            My MS Access Workstation is a Windows 10 Pro, Intel i7-4770, 16 Gb RAM, 256Gb SSD
            They are connected on the same Workgroup (I do not have a domain)
Questions:
1).      Do I need to create a Rule for Windows Firewall?
Is Port 9088 the default for Informix?
Inbound, Outbound, or both?
On the Server, Workstation, or both?
2).      Which Client SDK should I use?
ClientSDK4.10TCDE.Win (32-bit) or Client SDK4.50FC1.Win (64-bit)?
The IBM Knowledge Center says …”To configure a DSN on the Windows 64-bit platform, you must use the 32-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator” (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGU8G_14.1.0/com.ibm.odbc.doc/ids_odbc_069.htm)
3).      Depending on the Client SDK, which Informix can I install?
    IBM.ids.1210TC13de (32-bit) or IBM.ids.14.10.FC1.Win (64-bit)?
    (if I use the 32-bit SDK, can I still use the 64-bit Database?)
4).      Do I need to create an Informix User Group in Windows, and what permissions do I need to give them?
5).      What ODBC Connections do I need to make?
On the (Informix) Server, (MS Access) Workstation, from MS Access, or all?
(e.g. Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> ODBC Data Sources (?-bit)

Hello:

The battery on my Lenovo Ideapad 330S will not charge, despite the fact that it's plugged in.

The driver is up to date, so I cannot install a driver to eliminate this issue.

How do I get my laptop's battery to charge?

Thanks!

JavaScript Best Practices

Save hours in development time and avoid common mistakes by learning the best practices to use for JavaScript.

Here is the situation:
I recently purchased a Dell server that had Server 2019 Standard pre-installed. Now it is my understanding that I can install Hyper-V and have 1 "free" install of Server 2019 Standard as a VM.
Is that accurate?

If so, where do I obtain the actual product key from?  

Thank you!!!

hi,

when I try to setup up MySQL for any hosts do not have internet access, must I setup local repository ?

before when I install MariaDB on top of Redhat linux I do this:

mount the RHEL 7 installation ISO to /mnt folder :

# mount -o loop rhel-server-7.5-x86_64-dvd.iso /mnt

Open in new window


Setup local repository:

copy the media.repo file from /mnt to /etc/yum.repos.d/ and set the permissions to 644 :

# cp /mnt/media.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel7dvd.repo
# chmod 644 /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel7dvd.repo
Edit the rhel7dvd.repo, changing the gpgcheck=0 setting to 1 and adding the following 3 lines
enabled=1
baseurl=file:///mnt/
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
clear the related caches by yum clean all and subscription-manager clean once
# yum clean all
# subscription-manager clean

Open in new window

rpm -ivh mysql80-community-release-el7-3.noarch.rpm

We had a server named SERVER_A that we are decommissioning on it and it contained a share with software installation directories on it.  We have moved that files and folders to a new server called SERVER_B and and created that share with the same name and rights.  Because many of the software installations on our desktops and laptops still reference SERVER_A I thought I will just create a CNAME record in DNS and point SERVER_A to SERVER_B.  And that works for purposed of pinging the server, but when I try to access the UNC Share-Error.PNGpath of the share at \\SERVER_B\Software, I get the attached error.  Is there a way to accomplish what I'm trying to do because I have a couple shares that I need to be able to access from the old hostname?

WIN10PRO/64

Everyday I get
Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070057: 9ND94HKF4S0Z-AppUp.SGXDFP.

I can't seem to find solution to the error (Event ID 20). It's not a WinUpdate error - No KB in error message. One post suggested it was related to Intel Software Guard Extensions Software. Device manager says SGES is installed.

Thanks.
