One of my clients brought up a question regarding becoming properly NIST 800-171 certified.

He had heard that in order to use cloud services one of the points of concern was ensuring that they were all hosted in datacenters in the US and not abroad. Apparently Office 365 Business has some parameters that allow you to ensure this is the case.

1) Anyone remember or know of this requirement?
2) And is there a way to specify in Office 365 to ensure its US based?

Thanks.

Using netstat I can use commands like this to find out how many ports are in use
netstat -a -n | find /c "4455"


What i need is a cmd to list all in use ports, and their count
i.e.
port 4455: 1800 connections
port 4456: 100 connections
etc

either a cmd or a windows app is fine

What are my options?

I do not have access to the SCCM server ... only the Windows 7 clients. How to fix software center "Waiting to install"? This is a common problem on many clients, but not all.
I have tried:
foreach($i in gwmi -Namespace root/ccm/policy/machine/actualconfig -Class ccm_softwaredistribution -Filter "ADV_AdvertisementID='CS123456'"){$i.delete()}

Open in new window

This only seems to address the applications that were waiting, not the updates.

Hello, I need your advice in which program can i accomplish the following either with C# or Python.
I am a Sys Admin working for a DevOps environment.

We have QA, UAT and PROD environments.
100% of the the time we need to help developers in Copying, Pasting  From / To, Starting a service, Stopping a service and Recycling an app pool in IIS.
But in PROD night, we are done around 8pm, 1hr approx which includes: Copying, Pasting  From / To, Starting a service, Stopping a service and Recycling an app pool in IIS then we have to wait, wait wait and wait if the developers find any issues in PROD and they need the Sys Admin help for Copying, Pasting  From / To, Starting a service, Stopping a service and Recycling an app pool in IIS.

It was my first time that I experienced that and I said: Damn, the whole Copying, Pasting  From / To, Starting a service, Stopping a service and Recycling an app pool in IIS can done programmatically and we do not need to wait till midnight or so if Developers need a SysAdmin, in other words i can try to develop an executable that can do the following:

Which environment are you working: QA, UAT, PROD
Servers are listed: 1, 2, 3, 4
Which windows service are you going to work ? (List of services)
Browse the source, Get the file,.

Browse to the target ? Place
This server has the following App Pools (List of the App Pools)
Do they need to be recycle ?

Hi All,

I hope you can all help. Those with a foundation of security would be especially welcome; however opinions always offer some weight, even if from a non IT background.

I have a question regarding IT Security and Non Repudiation.

I have been in a work environment recently where I have performed the following on a whole.

1. When first starting everyone in the company was using one general admin account with "all power" permissions to administer the network.
I implemented a policy to make sure individual admin accounts where created for each IT Person; for accounting purposes.
All 3 personalized admin accounts setup have equal and full administrator permissions on the domain network.

2. When starting all passwords, including admin accounts etc.. where stored in an excel spreadsheet.
I moved this to an encrypted lastpass database; that was moved to a central platform later on for on the road IT staff.
Everyone was given access to the centrally system; however due to myself being occupied with a specific client; left management to another internal IT staff member.

3. The client which I did the above for has kept passwords of all its staff in an excel sheet; which I have advised against; however my reasoning has been ignored for control and I guess what might be a lack of trust of our IT company.


I have recently complained to my Directors(no managers, small company) about illegal activities that were taking place; such as providing unathorised …

Hi,

We are experiencing the following error when attempting to sysprep and capture a machine whilst using the windows deployment tool. I can see in the logs that this seems to be an error with Miracast, I have attempted to copy the Miracast file from the Apprepository in windows.old to the new location, removing the package and adding it but this has not helped, and when i rerun the sysprep/capture i get exactly the same error.

Would anybody have a suggestion on the next step I should take? I've also attached the log file showing the error.

When I open Dell OpenManage Server Administrator, it is correctly showing the inventory of the server, except for the physical and virtual disks on the machine. Instead, it is showing me the physical and virtual disks and RAID-5 array on a DIFFERENT machine. I have tried opening OMSA with localhost, the IP of this machine and its name, I have checked that NSlookup is only reporting the IP of this machine. Is there some way to force it to check the inventory again? I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice now.

Discover app within WatchGuard's Wi-Fi Cloud helps you optimize W-Fi user experience with the most complete set of visibility, troubleshooting, and network health features. Quickly pinpointing network problems will lead to more happy users and most importantly, productive IT.

We currently have MaaS360 and want to come away from that due to the limited functionality and lack of helpful features. We would require something that provides more control over the device. So that we can allow and restrict apps as necessary.

EDIT: We also push 3 apps currently and would require that feature as well. Something does a fairly good job at auditing the devices within the company.

Right now, we use asset management for tracking of client assets like you normally would- When it was purchased, lease, buy, basic information in our CRM, due to replace, etc.  While that has been working for us fine, the problem is some of our larger clients are wanting some help in the IT asset check out/in process for THEIR employees.  I can't give access to our existing system because they would be able to see other client information.  (I can lock it down so they don't have actual access, but it still exposes our client list).  

What I want is something that I can manage the assets for clients, give their HR department an account so they can do their own check in/out of phones, laptops, whatever, and cloud/internet based.   Anyone know of anything like that?  It woudl be nice to stay as part of CRM/ticketing, but not critical if separate.

Hi all,

We're wanting to build a comprehensive inventory and software catalogue.

We currently use Snipe-It to log purchases and check out software to assets, but we want to start recording free software and a bit more detail with it. So a version history, support expiry date, details of the license. The aim is to be able to help us better manage our software in terms of making sure it is kept up to date and patched across our entire network. It would be good if we can search for a PC and see all the software on it, or search a software name and see all the machines it's on.

Basically it's more than an Excel job. So does anyone have any experience with inventory software or database applications that might be suitable for this? We're looking at methods for auditing as well so welcome any suggestions!

Cheers,

Andy
