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.

Hi. I am attempting to install 16.04 server on a hardware raid 1 array. I created a boot partition (1 mb - I also tried larger, but same error), main disk (3.8 TB) and a swap partition (.2 TB). I am able to install on this configuration, but when the system boots for the first time I receive the error:

"error attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0'"

Then, it dumps me to the grub rescue prompt. At this prompt, I have tried setting the root and path to the boot partition, but I am never able to ls see anything in that directory, nor can I get back to the grub menu.

I have read several others with the same problem, but have not been able to recover from this error. Is the main disk too big, possibly? Should I install on a smaller partition? Thanks.

Hello,
Just finished a new build today here are the parts.

OS: Win 10 Pro

CPU: i9900k

Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S

MOBO: ASUS TUF Z390 Plus  

RAM: Crucial 4 x 16gb:

SSD:  Samsung 850 Pro 5112gb

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080

PSU: Seasonic 850W

Case: Cooler Master HAF 932

Monitor: Phillips BDM43OUC 43” 4K


After all was installed, I turned it on and got this image.
First Boot
I went into BIOS and did not recover the BIOS setting, but I did disable the RGB lights and change the boot order to DVD so that I could start installing the MOBO drivers etc. I put in the MOBO CD and rebooted.

After booting the next screens were the following images, telling me to press ENTER because it detected the Bootable CD.  I did and it continued on, not reading my cd and ended with a FreeDOS prompt.

CD-Boot 1
CD-Boot 2
CD-Boot 3

I have had this happen before but have never really paid a lot of attention. I will log on to a Windows Workstation and install a printer. Not really sure how I was logged on. Local admin, domain admin or user. One way or the other the printer I install doesn't show up on other profiles.

   How should I log on to ensure that when I add a printer that it is available to all profiles?

I am having trouble installing an Active X control component in Embarcadero RAD Studio10.3 Rio with the C++ compiler.
I have previously installed the same Active X control (a third party component) in RAD Studio C++ Builder 10.2 Tokyo and C++ Builder 10.1 Berlin with little trouble.
I get as far as creating a unit but when trying to install the unit into an existing package the compiler doesn't list any existing packages ?
It is something that I hardly ever do and would appreciate step by step instructions from experience with to RAD studio 10.3
I have no experience in using Delphi but am quite familiar with C++ Builder.

I would like to know if it is possible to setup ad sync after an exchange hybrid installation. This is the scenario.

I have an office 365 account that was in a hybrid scenario but now is cloud only. Exchange server is decommissioned.

I have experience setting up ad sync after a cut over migration using a method similar to the one shown here:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_o365admin-mso_dep365/ad-connect-dirsync-after-cutover-migration/cc3fe96a-7e86-493e-bcd1-58d4079596ef

I can find lots of articles that tell of the problems in decommissioning the last exchange server and keeping ad sync, but none which say you can't stop ad sync and re set it up from scratch. Obviously im not going to just try it. But would like to know if anyone can shed any light what is preventing it.

Its very frustrating to me I cannot keep password sync after implementing the best form of migration.

Brand new Syslog-ng not receiving logs from Palo Alto, and I can't figure out where I messed up.  This was a minimal centos 7 build with syslog-ng installed through yum.  I have disabled the firewall on the box and setup my config as the following:

[root@c0syslog panorama]# cat /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
@version:3.5
@include "scl.conf"

# syslog-ng configuration file.
#
# This should behave pretty much like the original syslog on RedHat. But
# it could be configured a lot smarter.
#
# See syslog-ng(8) and syslog-ng.conf(5) for more information.
#
# Note: it also sources additional configuration files (*.conf)
#       located in /etc/syslog-ng/conf.d/

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Simple question; can someone tell me the average size of the install of Red hat Enterprise Linux (i.e. with no extra software installed) ?

My company is looking to gauge the amount of disk space we would need to allot to a new RHEL server (latest version) and before we take into account the extra disk size of the extra software we will install.

Cannot promote 2016 domain controller as I am receiving this error: "You cannot install an additional domain controller at this time because the RID master %computername%.domainname.local is offline". Run "netdom query fsmo" and the proper response is returned. NSlookup identifies proper RID master.

Hi All,

I need to upgrade from SQL Server 2014 Express Edition to SQL Server 2017 Standard Edition.
I've got the license purchased (Server + CALs).
I wanted to know if in-place upgrade is possible without the need for data migration?
But only using the Maintenance mode of setup?
I know this is possible with Editions upgrade only, i.e. 2014 Express to 2014 Standard.

Appreciate any help. Thanks.

I have a fresh install of WSUS on a fresh install of Windows Server 2012R2.  I have edited group policy to have our desktops use our internal WSUS server for updates.  The only client showing in the WSUS console is the WSUS server itself.  I tried reinstalling WSUS on Windows Server 2016 and I get identical behavior.  I ran the Solarwinds Diagnostic Tool for the WSUS and the first two sections are fine. The last section, WSUS Server Connectivity, fails with "Cannot Connect - caused by a network infrastructure fault making the Windows Update unavailable ..."

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I have a Wordpress premium account. I am interested in the WP-emembers widget.
To my surprise, I discovered after buying the widget that you must have a business account to install the widget.
That's another $204 USD a year. I was not expecting to upgrade my account just so that I
can install widgets.  :>(

Does anyone know of a list of free widgets that I can review?
Maybe one of those will suit my needs.
Thanks!

I need to be able to install Office 2016 Pro Plus on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Terminal Server, well, 2 actually.
Is there any good guidance on this for someone who hasn't done this before? Currently there is 2010 on the server. I am going to be moving the customer to Office 365, then will migrate the organization to their own private cloud. But for now, I think we need to get them licensed properly and on the updated Office platform.  This looks like a streaming install vs a MSI on the Office 365 E3 license. Will that be a problem?

I have just purchased an SDR device - Software Defined Radio Receiver USB Stick - RTL2832 w/R820T
I have downloaded SDR-Sharp for windows from a link on the supplier's (Adafruit) web site SDR
The SDR-Sharp software includes a batch file which is to be run to install the required device driver.
Running the batch file however in a  windows 7 Professional 64 bit system does not do anything.
I have tried running the command "httpget http://osmocom.org/attachments/download/2242/RelWithDebInfo.zip tmp\RelWithDebInfo.zip
" in a command box but get the error "httpget is not an recognised internal or external command".

Can someone advise me as to from where the windows 7  driver can be downloaded ?

The batch file content is as follows:
@echo off

mkdir tmp

echo Downloading RTLSDR Driver
httpget http://osmocom.org/attachments/download/2242/RelWithDebInfo.zip tmp\RelWithDebInfo.zip

echo Downloading Zadig
set zadig_exe=zadig.exe
ver | findstr /l "5.1." > NUL
if %errorlevel% equ 0 set zadig_exe=zadig_xp.exe
httpget http://zadig.akeo.ie/downloads/%zadig_exe% %zadig_exe%

unzip -o tmp\RelWithDebInfo.zip -d tmp
move tmp\rtl-sdr-release\x32\rtlsdr.dll .

rmdir tmp /S /Q

Hi all,
I've started to migrate exchange 2010 to 2016, did all the prerequisites and the installation went smoothly.
However I have a very strange issues.
I migrated a test mailbox from the 2010 to the 2016, on the new server it says migration succeed but on the 2010 it says it faild due a mapi access denied..
I also noticed that I cannot see the 2016 databases on the old server, the mailbox that was migrated is working in the local OWA, I can send emails from her but I when I answer the messages but the mailbox won't get the replays,
Any suggestions how to resolve it?
I think it has to be something with the virtual directory or am I wrong?

I have done the following:
1. determined the missing hard drives are not appearing in the Disk Manager
2. determined the missing hard drives are not appearing in the Device Manager
3. Assured the drive continue to be powered and physically connected
4. Read many help articles about the topic

Interesting note: I have a dual-boot system, the  pre-existing one is Windows 10 (older version); when I boot to that OS instance, I see all my hard drives
Since I am not even seeing the drives in Device Manager in the new Windows 10 install, I imagine the solution will either be a special KB update or something obscure I cannot even imagine :(

Thank you!
JohnD

     - Enabling Windows Update Power Management to automatically wake up the system to install scheduled updates - "Enabled"
     - Turn off auto-restart for updates during active hours - "Enabled"
     - Always automatically restart at the scheduled time - "Enabled"
     - Configure Automatic Updates - "Enabled"

So have an issue with a new comcast install. They state the customer is responsible for providing a Layer 3 device to route traffic between the 2 comcast networks.  Basically comcast provides 2 networks, a layer 3 network for the point to point connection for the circuit and the customer usable IP network.  There needs to be a device installed that will route traffic between the 2.  Per their conditions "You are responsible for securing and providing a Layer 3 router capable of routing traffic between Comcast Business and your LAN. We do not consult or configure Customer Premise Equipment (CPE). The Layer 3 router should have at least two Layer 3 WAN network interfaces. One interface should face Comcast P2P (/30) and the other interface should face your LAN (/29 - /24)."

Could i Get this done with an asa, or is there something else that would be better suited and cheaper?
