Introduction to Web Design

Develop a strong foundation and understanding of web design by learning HTML, CSS, and additional tools to help you develop your own website.

Hi all, just wanted to say after some significant difficulty I managed to get BizTalk access in my organisation. My head and I know that our BizTalk team controls all integration and we all find it very difficult to deal with them, My head and I discussed that I learn BizTalk, which has been my long term interest and on the path in learning a thing or two about this. I know I won't get any support from that team but only hope I had when I had that discussion with my head was that I could count on all your expertise on this site. So hoping you guys may be able to help me :-) for now if somebody can help me where I should start to learn the tool that is much appreciated....I am a newbie and never seen BizTalk yet!

Points of My Scenario:
1. I am admin of 2 newly deployed virtual machines: one Windows 7 Enterprise, and one Windows 10 Enterprise
2. I was successful to configure smartcard logon for the Windows 7 computer, but the same steps (drivers installation and certificate import) are not working for the Windows 10 Enterprise computer.
3. For each computer, both the driver installation (smartcard reader and smartcard) and the certificate import are successful.
4. For both Windows versions (7 and 10 Enterprise), the root CA certificate was [successfully] imported into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store
5. However, when attempting to login to Windows 10 with smartcard, I get the following error, "An untrusted certification authority was detected while processing the domain controller certificate used for authentication. Additional information may be available in the system event log. Please contact your administrator."

QUESTION: What additional configuration is required on Windows 10 Enterprise so that it accepts the smartcard login just like its Windows 7 Enterprise counterpart?

PS: I can login to BOTH Windows 10 and Windows 7 with local and domain user accounts that don't require smartcards.

We currently use Visual Studio 2008 v9.0.  When one user opens a proc on Monday (but does not check it out as they have no intention at that time to make changes) if another user checks out the proc on Tuesday , makes changes and checks it in.  There is nothing to stop the first user from making changes to the proc as he/she  has it in front of him (fro  Monday) and overwrite the changes that user 2 made on Tues.
Is there a way to prevent this - e.g. automatically refresh, or not allow changes checked in if not using the latest file or the problem seems to be that if you have a proc open, you can directly make changes and it will then get flagged as checked out, perhaps if this could be disabled so that the only way to check out a proc would be to reopen from scratch

In SCCM , my Inventoried Software doesn't show IE (except for v.7 and 8) so I when I run query on IE versions, I get no results.
If I do a software report, again, no IE (iexplore.exe)

Is it because the new versions of IE come in as KBs and aren't in add/remove programs?
How can I query for IE 9,10,11?

I tried this:

select SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.LastLogonUserName, SMS_R_System.LastLogonTimestamp from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile on SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FilePath like "%\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\" and SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileName like "iexplore.exe" and SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileVersion like "10.%"

Hi People,

I’ve got multiple people would like to use OneDrive as the shared mailbox and file server replacement so that they can collaborate and put files into the One Drive with some permission.

How can I achieve this with One Drive that is part of the Office 365 E3 license? because I am still confused how to create One Drive as File share for a dedicated team of Mac & Windows users.

My understanding is that OneDrive on E3 license is maximum 1 TB per user, so if I have the group of 10 marketing people, the one Drive I can allocate for the Marketing people to dump their files and collaborate is about 10 TB ?

Regards,

People,

Can anyone here please assist me in troubleshooting the Group Policy issue where it is showing like the below:
 Apply Outlook Signature (User Policy)
            Filtering:  Denied (Security)

Open in new window


I have done:
1. Added the user to the proper AD security group called "Corporate User" where this group is then added as the Security filtering under the Scope tab.

2. Added the same AD security group called "Corporate User" into the Delegation tab.

But somehow the GPO is not applied successfully and GPresult /R shows: Filtering:  Denied (Security)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Hi All,

Can anyone here please share some tips or steps in Group Policy in how to create the Outlook Email signature for each people in different OU ?

For Example:

Domain.com/Users/Accounting --> Email Signature Template ACC1.
Domain.com/Users/IT --> Email Signature Template IT1.
Domain.com/Users/Marketing --> Email Signature Template MRK1.

How to do that based on each OU ?

Note, the users are using various different OS and Office product like:
Operating System: Windows 7 and Windows 10
MS Office: 2010, 2013 and 2016 (some will use 64 bit, but majority is 32 bit)

Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated,

People,

My current company, let say ParentCo.com (1000+ user base) has just acquired new smaller company of just 80-100 users last month.

They've got all on premise:
AD domain controllers - Single Forest domain called ChildCo.com
File Servers ~ 12 TB on their office
Exchange server 2010 with email domain ChildCo.com, ChildCo2.com, Company2.com and SmallCo.com [my current email domain is First.LastName@ParentCo.com]
35+ Windows Server AD domain joined to ChildCo.com
AD user account: FLastname@ChildCo.com [my current AD domain uses First.LastName@ParentCo.com]

So how can I integrate them all into my Datacenter with the AD domain ParentCo.com and converting all users to be First.LastName@ParentCo.com ?

Where to start first so I can allow them to logon to my AD domain using First.LastName@ParentCo.com & access email from my new company ?

I will create the separate thread for migrating:

Active Directory
Exchange Server
File Server

to my ParentCo.com AD domain.

People,

I'm trying to implement email resiliency solution internally and also externally with no Load Balancer access, so I came up with the below Idea:

http://www.tutorius.com/setting-up-a-dns-round-robin-in-windows
http://exchange929.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/high-availability-for-exchange-2013-cas.html

which I will be applying for all of my Exchange Server 2013 Std. Edition running CAS role:

Internally
AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server 1 internal IP address on AD Site 1
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server 1 internal IP address on AD Site 1

AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server 2 internal IP address on AD Site 2
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server 2 internal IP address on AD Site 2

...

AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server N internal IP address on AD Site N
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server N internal IP address on AD Site N

and also Externally
AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server 1 public IP address on the internet.
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server 1 public IP address on the internet.

AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server 2 public  IP address on the internet.
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server 2 public  IP address on the internet.

...

AutoDiscover.domain.com points to CAS server N public IP address on the internet.
OWA.domain.com points to CAS server N public  IP

I had this question after viewing Installing CAS role for the existing Mailbox server ?.

Hi All,

Before configuring a DAG on my newly configured Exchange Server 2013 Standard SP1, I wonder if it is possible to separate the Database and the Transaction logs drive ?

Since at the moment Circular logging is enabled in all mailbox DB, do I need to turn it off first and then move the small Transaction logs then configure it with Powershell perhaps ?

Hi All,

Just like in the above thread, this time I want to do the other way around, What's the suggested steps for me to install CAS role on the existing Exchange Server 2013 Standard SP1 mailbox server role without losing any of its data or impacting email flow ?

Can someone please share the steps ?

Hi All,

I'm running Exchange Server 2013 that was inherited or not properly deployed and planned:

Windows Server 2008 R2
C:\ 200 GB [OS - 70GB remaining]
D:\ 1.95 TB [Mailbox DB - 50GB remaining free disk space]
L:\ 200 GB [Logs - 30 GB remaining free disk space]

P:\ 100 GB [Page file - 10 GB remaining]

So If I run the Exchange backup to truncate the log files now during the business hours, does it can cause any mail flow impact ?

Does the D: drive of the Database will run out due to the very large transaction logs being committed to the Exchange database ?

Note: The D: drive cannot be extended anymore to 2 TB due to NTFS - MBR partition

People,

I'm running Exchange Server 2013 SP1 that was losing its 1.9 TB Database disk for 2 hours, and then back online again all in a sudden.

So the timing is like:

Yesterday
9:00 PM - 9:30 PM, I am doing my change to delete the oversized Mail.que:
1.  Go to services.msc and Pause the Microsoft Exchange Transport service.
2.  Run “Get-Queue | ft -AutoSize” and ensure all pending messages are clearing out to be very minimal under 10.
3.  Stop the Microsoft Exchange Transport service
4.  Set Microsoft Exchange Transport service to "Disabled"
5.  Rename mail.queue file
6.  Set Microsoft Exchange Transport service to "Automatic"
7.  Reboot the Exchange server
8. Run “Get-Queue | ft -AutoSize” and ensure all pending messages are clearing out.

Open in new window


after the reboot, the Windows Server is rebooting itself again, but then this time its worst, the D:\ drive where all of the Exchange mailbox DB went missing due to the D:\ drive has become RAW instead of NTFS for about 2-2.5 hours.

11:45 PM yesterday, the D:\ drive is mysteriously back online again as NTFS drive, all emails are flowing back as normal.

But then I've got some users more than half reporting that they are missing their yesterday's email even before the maintenance window yesterday at 9:00 PM ?

The email today is working fine from everyone, but some of my users did lose their yesterday emails?

Looking through Exchange Transaction logs, I can see some emails within the outage window:

We are in the process of rolling out Microsoft Enterprise Mode Site List Manager to our enterprise environment, but we were curious if it is possible to specify in the Enterprise Mode list that a URL/Domain can be opened with either IE11 or Edge?  The Enterprise Mode Site List Manager GUI allows to select either IE11 or Edge, but I was curious if there was a hidden syntax we could update the Enterprise Mode - XML file to allow both browsers to be used for a certain URL?

I had this question after viewing Office 365 and Azure with ADFS setup or AD Pass-through authentication ?.

People,

I'd like to plan and build ADFS servers in my current OnPremise infrastructure so that the current AD user account can access or consume the Azure AD cloud services.

At the moment I do not have any Office 365 yet so AD-Pass through authentication is not possible to be implemented.

On Premise – Production Site:
1x Windows Server 2012 R2 – Domain Joined – AD Federation Server & SQL Server Express Edition on the server. [PRDADFS01-VM]
1x Windows Server 2012 R2 – Non-Domain Joined (DMZ) – WebApplication Proxy Server. [PRDADFSPXY01-VM]

On Premise – DR Site:
1x Windows Server 2012 R2 – Domain Joined – AD Federation Server & SQL Server Express Edition on the server. [DRADFS01-VM]
1x Windows Server 2012 R2 – Non-Domain Joined (DMZ) – WebApplication Proxy Server.[DRADFSPXY01-VM]

Certificate requirements:
ADFS.company.com --> this is the load balanced name or VIP using DNS Round Robin both internally and externally.
PRDADFSPXY01-VM.company.com
DRADFSPXY01-VM.company.com

Is that the correct simplest deployment?
