Over the past year, I have purchased MS Visio 4 different times using Volume Licensing Services.

When I look in the Volume Licensing Services website, it shows that each of the keys has 50 activations available.

A couple of the purchases were for multiple users.

How do I track if I still have licenses available?, since my understanding is:

1) The same user can install MS Visio on both their laptop and desktop and only require one seat.
2) The totals are activations and not users. So If I purchase a new computer for a user, and install the same key on their new computer, it now shows as a 2nd activation even though only 1 license is required.

For example, one purchase was for 2 user licenses. I can see that the activation count is 2, but is that a laptop and desktop for the same user or 2 separate user installs.

We are an Microsoft Exchange environment .  We use Active sync to sync our 80 devices (iphones and Samsung galaxies) with exchange, Periodically ( 2 or 3 times a year ) I would delete/cleanup old  c$\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1 and also the W3SVC2 and W3SVC3 folders. They would have a tremendous amount of files and each file could be 30 MB or so.
Now in those folders the files are over 300 MB each and I have to cleanup these folders monthly.
I understand these are log files,  Is my exchange server a problem ? or are some of the smartphones having problems ?
What can I look at to see why these files have now grown 10 times what they were.

Any info is appreciated

I changed the setting on a friend's system to enable auto fill in the Google Chrome settings. We checked it on a few web pages and it was fine. Now he says there is no auto fill. I've seen the instructions on how to set it with an article found using Chrome search.

Why does the setting not hold?

My old crappy laptop broke. Someone gave me this old not as bad Lenovo Edge Thinkpad with I5-M560, Intel HD Graphics.

Restored laptop with factory Windows 7. During a day of security updates, the Samsung TV was working via HDMI cable. After the security updates, I installed a couple of apps. While this was going on, I decided to move the HDMI cable a bit on the desk, and the monitor became "No Signal". I have not been able to get it working again.

Screen Resolution Window says "SyncMaster" and monitor shows "No Signal", so some detection on both ends is there. Only unusual thing is if I hit "Detect" - a third box appears saying "Another display not detected".

The "Device Manager" --> "Monitors" just indicates "Generic PnP Monitor" (and the LCD 1366x768 laptop monitor).

My co-worker wrote:
I've heard numerous problems with connecting video output things to Windows laptops over the years. I think the problem is that it tries to save profiles of things you typically do so when you plug something in again it knows what to do. At that, I suspect you often have Windows v. Intel (integrated graphics) v. NVIDIA (discrete graphics) v. Lenovo/HP (proprietary Windows stuff) all trying to do that same things (save profiles) and fighting with each other.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello,

There is a feature in fonts in Win 10 that allows you to hide the fonts.  

But, though they grey out inside the System > Fonts interface, they do not suppress themselves in programs, like word.  Still that long list.

Seen posts in Google lamenting the issue.  But, no solutions.

How does this look to you?

Sincerely,

OT

HI All,

My company decides to reduce their workers due to costs. Now me as an IT allrounder for the company, i need to write a document, which states why they need the IT personnel (just me) to finalize  the leavers account termination and backup and who will manage the system we have and who will deal with the contacts and help with the IT administration and to reduce the cost.

in this case, do I need a business proposal to present which will show then that even after making workers redundant they need someone to work with the last bits leaves and continuing to reduce the costs?

Could someone be able to advice?

So I walked into this newly built server room and see a water sprinklers hanging right on the top of the racks.

I never seen sprinklers in the server rooms before in my career.  Is it acceptable for the server rooms or absolutely no no?   Wonder other's opinions before I push back hard.  I understand this is not a data center but a server room for 100 users office floor.
Thanks in advance.

I have been asked to patch office 365 but the conventional way using SCCM cannot be used because the current version level is at SCCM 2012 R2 (1302) on 2008 R2 SP1 Standard. Active Directory is at 2003, I can’t upgrade SCCM to 1606 to support office 365 because of AD SCCM would fall out of support if we changed it.

I have been tasked with patching O365 I have a few suggestions but need some advice on achieving this

1: Set up a file share for the patching and use group policy. Really dont want to take this approach as its labour intensive.

2: Set a new instance of WSUS up on a 2012 server with WSUS ver 4.0 and deploy 365 patching from it only snag is I dont know if I can run SCCM client patching along side a separate instance of WSUS. Is this achievable or is there a better solution.

We aren’t using azure the o365 is static.

Any suggestions would be greatly received

Hi,
 
    Please see the diagram attached for a better idea of the setup. I am planning on deploying a pair of ACS servers in a cluster. Is it best to deploy the ACS servers in datacenter 2 behind a load balancer such as a F5? Also, is there a document/books which can be recommended which explains the different cluster deployment scenarios and how to pretty much configure an ACS from scratch?

Thank you

Is it necessary to uninstall and reinstall Office 365 each time an employee is terminated and their replacement takes their desk or can I run the installer over the old install to change the license over to the new users account?

I haven't seen any of these error out of stop working... should I expect to ?
