Can same FSMO role be on two DCs?
Currently I have 1st DC on VM and 2nd DC on a new physical reliable server.  However, since the VM was a 1st DC all five FSMO roles are still sitting on that VM.  
Any opinions as for spreading those to 2nd DC or moving all roles to the 2nd DC?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks in advance.

Trying to add 2nd domain controller and no luck. >> Encountered an error contacting domain ad.name.com
The server is not operational.>>>  >>An Active Directory domain controller for the domain 'ad.name.com' could not be contacted.

Anyone can recommend another similar product or win10 can do it natively?

People,

Can anyone here please share what's the steps and the risk when enabling this nice feature in both DNS and DHCP servers ?

Because in my AD joined workstations, there are so many confusion in regards to pinging DNS name (FQDN) returning old or different AD computer name.

what my concern in enabling DNS scavenging in all AD Integrated DNS Server and DHCP servers, does it impact the current server DNS entries that are still online or pingable?

I'm trying to avoid any outage or issue when enabling those two features in all of my DNS servers one by one for the entire AD domain.

I have been using the Outlook express for long time but now a days, it seems that I have to switch it to Microsoft Outlook with 10 GB of emails data.  I searched on Google about the solution. There are many paid solution are available. But I want manual solution for this.

Using Windows 7. I have a system that had 4GB of memory (4x1GB). One stick failed, so there was 3 GB left. Figured out I could just as well upgrade to the maximum amount of RAM (8GB) and bought 4x2GB of RAM of the exact same type and exact same brand. Replaced the 3x1GB sticks and booted the machine.

After this change, the CPU is running at 100% all the time and the system is very slow.
So I rebooted the system and ran a memory test with memtest. All the 8GB tested OK, nothing wrong with them.

I then removed one RAM stick from the system so that there was 6GB left. After this change, the system boots fine and CPU usage is normal. So I started msconfig and disabled all services that were not Windows services, and disabled all startup applications so that they wouldn't be run at startup. Turned off the computer and added the 2 GB stick again, and when booting it became evident that the problem still persisted. None of the startup programs that weren't Microsoft were creating this effect.

So, I am a bit lost on how to proceed.

I have a new boss who doesn't understand what my department does.

I was hoping someone on EE has been in the same situation where they've had to put together an outline of exactly what IT does.

If anyone is willing to share what they have that would be appreciated.

If you have a chart of the IT department that would be GREAT.

Or if anyone has a link to a good site that describes IT, that would also be appreciated.

This is a non-Windows AD network.  Mixed environment.
Windows/Mac/Linux

Is there a good tool to scan and list all the available hostnames on the network?
Same for the DNS.  Can I search local DNS and compile all the hostnames registered there?

Thanks in advance.

Spun up a DC too fast.  Wonder now how to change a DNS Domain name from domain.local to domain.com and also a NetBIOS name.  
Worth the stretch or easier just to wipe and reinstall?

So I didn't select a Desktop Experience while installing Server Standard 2016.   And looks like it installed a Core Edition.  Just a CMD command line.  
Does is mean no Desktop Experience is a Core Experience?
