CEO ran out of space on his beast.  System 76 Leopard Extreme is that system in his home office.  250GB SSD and 4x4TB drives. so 16TB total.  https://system76.com/desktops/leopard

I want to give him more[ max out] space with least amount of disruption.  Was thinking about this one: https://www.amazon.com/Gold-12TB-Enterprise-Class-Drive/dp/B075L6FJH8
But then I like to do make sure he can do it.  Would be much slower with external drive?  He does large programing models. So debating if i should go with internal or external drive.

Thoughts?

Dear Experts

We have to setup  an application server which is web-based (LAMP stack) for which we are planning to procure the server with 10TB disk and with vmware hypervisor , the application  server will be running on VM, it is very much important for us to setup a disaster recovery and business continuity for example if server crashes or due to physical damage at head office (primary site)  goes down then  the  server at recovery site to ensure business continuity.
 we have 2 branch offices one connected with mpls vpn to the head office where this new server going to be setup and another office is having leased line connectivity. please suggest on the following and which is the best one recommended you can add other plans please
1. while purchasing the dell server is there software  if purchased and as well procure same identical config one more server and host it in the branch office, hence 2 servers of identical configurations and the software will mirror the volume and data - if primary site goes down the recovery site comes to live for the business continuity

2. OR should we have to look for automatic vm backup with veeam and this can be configured replicate from the primary site to the recovery site

please suggest thanks in advance.

Anyone knows if there is a way to change a hostname in Polycom SoundStation 7000?   So it would broadcast an actual hostname instead of the make/model name.
Easier to manage and troubleshoot.

Did you guys see Windows 10 version 1607 reached end of service on April 10, 2018.  
Does it mean they have a  new version to push?

So I noticed MS automatic updates keep updating even if laptop is in Sleep.  I put laptop Sleep every night.  Few times I found it restarted in the morning waiting for my login.
Does it mean Auto-updates work even in Sleep position or were they downloaded with laptop was on and restarting while asleep overnight?
How to prevent this in the future?

Can a OneDrive for Business Deployment be "pre-configured" for win10 users?  

On our win10 clients, OneDrive is in the system tray as a white cloud "OneDrive not signed in".

We want to "auto-configure" it as much as possible.

The extent of what I've been able to accomplish is pre-filling the email address on the "Setup OneDrive" screen via a URL where the email address is the parameter.

I keep seeing references to the same KB article:
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/deploy-the-new-onedrive-sync-client-in-an-enterprise-environment-3f3a511c-30c6-404a-98bf-76f95c519668

It mentions the pre-filling email address thing and also auto-syncing a sharepoint library but we don't have a sharepoint library.

We simply want to deploy onedrive as seamlessly as possible so we can do away with "U:" personal file server space and let people store their personal files in OneDrive.

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know why some DHCP entries show blank names?  IP, Lease expiration, MAC address, etc.  Just missing a name.  
Would that be some sort of an appliance/hw that without a hostname assigned?

Folks, do you know what icons mean on DHCP clients.  Some shows a clock and others some sort of checkmark or strike.

This is for Windows Server 2016

Hi Guys,

I received a new HP ProLiant DL 380 G10 (new generation) and I created a new boot image x64 with the necessary drivers to deploy images on that kind of machines (as I just upgraded my SCCM 2012 R2 to sp1).
I also created a new iso file (task sequence via media) based on the new boot image including the new drivers. During the capture process I received a error code 0x80070490 directly after the wizard. I also attached the smsts.log, because I become crazy trying analyzing these generic error messages...
Can I ask you to help me by checking the log file?
Thanks in advance,

Javier

We have a client that wants to start getting involved in social network having presence in Tweeter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest.  Not only posting its business “news” or “new product” but articles of interest that come upon on a daily bases or even re-post articules or contents from other business partners, etc.

Besides the fact the client wants to know what  is the best way to start, one concern is posting data.  That  is comments, pictures, etc.  

We want to know how to go about posting an issue through all these social networks.  

For example, we found an artificial intelligence topic interesting and wanted to post it.  We download the article, download some images, prepare it and posted to Facebook.  How do the user go about  to modify contents prior posting to all Tweeter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Pinterest? Or is there a way that the user can creat a “template” and then post them to all?

Do I really need a reverse DNS zone?  This place never had it on bind dns and worked ok for years.  and it did't create on AD Windows DNS either.
Do I really need to create that? and would it cause an issue if I don't.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I have been recently appointed to a hiring committee for an open position within my department at the university.  To be perfectly candid, I have never been on a hiring committee which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.  What are "key" strengths and weaknesses to look for within a cover letter and resume?  With so many to go through, I do not want to spend a lot of time on irrelevant information.  

            Any shared tips or pointers for evaluating potential clients in an administrative capacity will be deeply appreciated.

            Thank you

             George

What are the recommended steps to move DNS from BIND to AD?  In AD there's no way to disable a DNS.  Its always runs as part of the AD.
Would it create any issues if I start entering new static DNS Host A record entries in AD with BIND DNS still up and running?

I upgraded our SonicWall at the beginning of the year and have some confusion regarding SonicOS's  CFS.  The device is running SonicOS Enhanced 6.5.0.2-8n.

(1) Is there a way to get a log of *ALL* CFS entries?  When I look under:

Log Settings > Base Setup > Security Services > Content Filter

It shows:

CFS Alert = 1461
Website Accessed = 16
Website Blocked = 14

However, I can't figure out how to get to that log.

(2) Is there a way for me to be emailed anytime someone gets the "blocked" screen with the details shown on the block screen they see?

TIA.

Running an encrypted laptop which can't handle some Windows Updates.  How can I disable the nag screens until I unencrypt drive to install updates?

Or even better, is there a way to apply major Windows 10 updates without unencrypting?  Using Veracrypt.

Thanks,

Nathan
