Is there a way of switching or toggling between monitors while connected to a remote Server 2016 server during a remote desktop connection from a Windows 10 laptop that only has one display?

I have a server connected to six different monitors and need to switch between the monitors to get to particular programs that are set to open on different monitors.

This is something I am able to do while connected to the server using Log Me In or Solar Windows MSP.

I have looked at the remote desktop settings and haven't been able to yet find such a setting. This is something that the "Use all my monitors for the remote session" option won't do.

Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

This course will help prep you to earn the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification showing that you have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in installing, managing, and troubleshooting IT systems in medical and clinical settings.

We recently upgraded our SCCM clients (Configuration Manager) to 5.00.8634.1814.

We did this after upgrading the site to 1802.

After the upgrade all of the icons in Software Center are wacked out.  Prior to the upgrade, something was taking different sized icons and make them automatically appear the same.

In the new version, this functionality works in the List View option - all icons appear the same size regardless of their size.  In Tile View, which everyone uses, this is not the case.  The icons are not being adjusted for the view.

Has anyone else noted this issue?  Is there a setting somewhere I can click to resize?

I hope so.  So far it's that or I have to resize them all manually.

Hello everybody,
We've a VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 and we want to put this VM into another server. Everytime we try to copy the VHD files, it comes with "Can't Read source file or disk".
A possible solution, as mentioned before in another post (https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/27661606/Cant-copy-VHD-file-possibly-corrupt.html), "the fix was to mount the vhd as a hard disk, copy everything off, then create a new vhd, copy everything back on. Then rewrite the boot sector".

We gonna try this one, since we've tried everything. But how is this "rewrite the boot sector" works? How can we do that part?

Thank you!
Att, Victor.

Update 1: We are trying to copy the Windows folder from the VHD and we're getting a lot of errors on the way, linked to the permissions.

This is a strange one.  I have a desktop pool with 30 linked clone desktops.  When I look at the parent VM, the VMware Persona Management service is set to auto and is started. I recompose my desktop pool with a fresh snapshot of the parent VM,  After they complete many of the VDI desktops the VMware Persona Management service is not running and is set to disable.  Mind you not all 30, but a random amount.  I can recompose the pool again and again several (maybe more or maybe less) desktops the service is not running.  BTW, this is not a problem with the one desktop pool.  It is doing the same thing with another pool as well.  This pool only has 15 desktops.  Sometimes after a recompose half of the desktops the service fails to start and sometimes after a recompose may 3 of the 15 fail.  There just isn't any pattern I can find.  

I modified a power shell script that scans all my VDI desktops to see which ones the service is running on and which ones it is not.  Here is the results from me recomposing both pools just 30 minutes ago.  As you can see 20 of the 45 desktops the persona service is not started.

Hello! I have an SBS 2011 server that uses SBS Fax service to route faxes in and out, delivering inbound to an email user. Worked like a champ for years, and then the ZOOM USB modem that was doing this job died and was replaced with a USB USR 5637. I have removed the drivers from the previous fax modem and installed the drivers for the new unit, and was able to run the fax configuration wizard from the SBS console and two problems occur. The first is the option for "route through email" is grayed out and not selectable. I opted to select store in a folder instead to complete the wizard successfully, and it errors out on Configuring US Robotics v.92.  Manually attempting to start the fax service results in a message that is does start successfully, but immediately stops, and the app log provides these errors 32108 and 1000 (below).  I have also removed and reinstalled the SBS fax service on the server with the same results.  Any thoughts on how to get this service functioning again as soon as possible?  TIA!

How can I save all screenshots to my One Drive for Business Pictures folder?

I have noticed that this feature isn't available like it is for One Drive (see the URL below).

I have switched over to using One Drive for Business and don't want to have to set up a separate One Drive account simply to be able to save screenshots to my personal One Drive Pictures folder.

C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

Hi,
 
I came across the following article
 
https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2014/08/18/printing-is-not-important-in-the-vdi-environment-a-comparison-between-citrix-xendesktop-and-vmware-horizon-view-printing/
 
We have a very large deployment of VDI VMware Horizon and we use AutoConnect Location-based Printing for VMware View.
 
We do use XenApp platinum and we are considering to consolidate with Citrix XenDesktop Platinum and consolidate replacing VMware Horizon.


The AutoConnect Location-based Printing for VMware View group policy setting is a name translation table. You use each row in the table to identify a specific printer and define a set of translation rules for that printer. The translation rules determine whether the printer is mapped to the VMware View desktop for a particular client.

When a user connects to a VMware View desktop, View Manager compares the client system to the translation rules associated with each printer in the table. If the client system meets all of the translation rules set for a printer, or if a printer has no associated translation rules, View Manager maps the printer to the VMware View desktop during the user’s session.

With XenDesktop is there a similar feature to accomplish the same or similar functionality?

in my company they want to implement express route since we have office 365 or use a wan balancer.

However according to what I read express route should be used with an optimization tool because express route helps on internet latency but connections are still bound by the inherent limitations of long-distance TCP connections and that Global SD-WANs are better candidates for cloud’s .


can someone help me clarify

MS Exchange Transport will not start after removing MS Forefront from SBS 2011 server

Hi I am running MS SBS 2011 Standard SP 1 server which Exchange will not send or receive emails.  

I recently noted that I still had installed MS Forefront software trail version and as was not being used, I tried to uninstall it via control panel / program / add- remove software etc.  Since then Exchange has not worked.  
At first this looked like an IPv6 issue  but soon realised that Forefront had not be properly uninstalled. I have the article https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/24582063/SBS-2008-Exchange-Transport-service-Stops.html.  which I have followed and managed to correct some of the EVENT errors, but I still can't get the MS Exchange Transport to run and their seems to be a number of errors also happening with sharepoint (this might not have anything to do with Exchange not working.

I am not technical so need as much help as possible

I'm trying to perform a migration for one of the computers from a windows server 2012 to a windows server 2016 but for some reason keep getting a pre-check failure message ( Unable to access server service on the machine 'WORKSTATION-WIN'. Make sure netlogon and workstation services are running and you can authenticate yourself to the machine ) ?

I have successfully migrated the users but when trying to perform a computer migration which should migrate all folders and files that are being redirected but can't understand why it's not working.

I also noticed i can't login to the new server 2016 any longer as it shows the message "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed." ?

Please let me know what's going on as i was able to login before to the new windows server 2016 but just didn't have the folder redirection migrated.

Is is the workstation that is having issues or is it windows server 2016 and what can i do to make the migration process working?

Currently using ADMT version 3.2

Thanks.

While attempting to install .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) I get an error message that says "The changes couldn't be completed. Please reboot your computer and try again. Error code: 0x800F0950).

I have rebooted the laptop several times and continue to get this error message.

This happens if I try to install .NET Framework 3.5 through Windows Features, if I download the installer, or if I download the offline installer. This also happens no matter which user I am logged on as.

What can I do to fix this issue so I can successfully install .NET Framework 3.5?
