IT Administration is the processes and best practices for programming and development, and incorporates methodologies for managing activities and projects. Common methodologies include waterfall, prototyping, iterative and incremental development, spiral development, rapid application development, extreme programming and various types of agile methodology. The life-cycle "model" is a more general term for a category of methodologies, and a software development "process" a more specific term to refer to a specific process chosen by a specific organization.

After being hit with Ransomware, restoring from backup, and reinstalling applications as needed, I can't get the Quickbooks Database Server services started or the Quickbooks Database Server Manager to run. When I browse for files and 'Start Scan", it attempts to start the services after browsing the files, finding Quickbooks files. It claims the folder in which the company files live isn't shared. I guess that's technically true, but the directory one level up IS shared, so it's possible to browse to it from a network share. Then it tells me it is attempting to resolve Networking issues, and tells me after that to resolve network issues and try again later (not the exact syntax, obviously).

I have tried installing just the bare server (what we had done in the past), installing the full version of Quickbooks (2016 for the moment), uninstalling, rebooting the server (2008 R2), reinstalling just the database server, using the Quickbooks clean boot utility, disabling ALL firewalls (Kaspersky and WIndows Firewall), I can't get the QBDbMgrN to start and stay started. I can't get the QuickbooksDB26 started. For some reason it claims to be a service that should be started manually. I don't recall that having been the case in the past.  Also,  I don't think the QuickbooksDB26 ever disappeared, even after a clean install (using the Clean Install tool), an uninstall, and/or a reboot.

Previous to the ransomware, the server had Quickbooks 2015 and 2017 database servers installed. …

Wanting to know about functionality and benefits/disadvantages of having multiple domains in one Office365 account.
I have a client that has several businesses, hence they have several domains. Currently only one business is using Office365 for email.
I'd like to know if there are benefits/disadvantages to having another or all domains in the same Microsoft Office365 Account.
These business do interact, but are somewhat separate, which complicates things like admin permissions.
Things that come to mind are things like, but not limited to seeing others in the GAL, calendar/contact sharing, user management, etc..

Trying to write an Exchange 2010 Transport Rule that will warn users if someone is attempting to impersonate a real AD/Exchange User.  IE, sender's EMail is liar@gmail.com but sets his text name to be John Smith, who is the president of the company.  So the inbound message is from John Smith <liar@gmail.com> when the correct sender would be John Smith <jsmith@real_domain_name.com>

I've created a Transport rule that checks:

- If inbound message is from a user that is outside the organization
- And sender's properties firstname is John
- And sender's propoerties match text pattern of lastname is Smith
- Then prepend message to EMail's Subject warning recipient

Had to add two conditions because if I put firstname and lastname in the sender's properties line, it made an OR statement instead of an AND statement

Note, can't just block liar@gmail.com, since the actual source address changes.

Not sure if this rule is working, or if GMail and other mailers always use what appear to be Active Directory fields of firstname and lastname.

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks,

Nathan

What I can't seem to figure out is how to add a specific department to a specific code. In this case we have a code defined as "paid break". I want to add Department 8 to the "paid break" code. Can anyone assist?

How can I use RDP (MSTSC.EXE) to log on to server as if you are at the console? I am looking for a way to modify the .RDP so when I execute the remote desktop to a server, the login page is pulled up so i can type my credentials in or use a digipass (vasco) alternative. I also use HP RGS to get into servers and blades, but the version in my environment is buggy and needs to install a client ... but it does accomplish the type of login behavior I am looking for ... when it works. I know that the .rdp file can be modified with a text editor, but I have not had any luck with the settings I have.

We have watchdog devices in every server room/closet every location in our company.  Every device have an IP/hostname with cname.  So I can go by the name of the room.
Issue is I still have to go to individual every IP to monitor.  Is there an easy way to consolidate into one single page with links, that doesn't require a lot of html coding.  
Any advice?   Solution using Watchdog15 devices with temp, and flood probe attachments.

Hi,

Yesterday I unlinked OneDrive Personal to link up my OneDrive Business. I normally don't use OneDrive Personal but when my new computer was setup my personal account was linked (desktop, docs and pics). It synced alle my files and said it was full, I continued work on it since I thought it was stored locally on the computer.

I did a lot of work on a file stored at my desktop, which I saved multiple times during last week. Yesterday I unlinked the OneDrive Personal and linked up OneDrive for Business. Today I was going to edit the file again, everything was lost and it shows only the content of the file at the beginning (before edit started)

How can this be? Somebody else heard of this, found a solution?

I am currently in a trial with Citrix Sharefile... but find the pricing a bit too much for our company at the moment..   Love the features .. Large File send.. Encryption .. all integrated into Outlook.   In my email signature I have a link for people that need to send me files... etc..etc..     Does anyone know of any other companies that offer this type of service that might not be as expensive?

Cheers

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.

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.
-Mike
