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

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?

We have total 7 scope configured in DHCP out of which 3 is showing blue exclamatory mark, when I click on display statistics for these 3 scopes all value is showing zero only. Event logs showing error messages like "DHCP client request from C42F909FAB66 was dropped since the applicable IP address ranges in scope/superscope VLAN40 are out of available IP addresses. This could be because of IP address ranges of a policy being out of available IP addresses." for all these 3 scopes only. However all these scopes are not more that 50% occupied.

DHCP lease is 10 hours for all scopes except scope for mobile user.

In DHCP properties DNS Tab
""Dynamically update DNS record only if requested by the DHCP clients"" is checked.
""Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted"" is also checked.

Assign IP addresses dynamically to clients of: is DHCP

In DNS Scavenge stale resource records are set as No-refresh interval 3 days and Refresh interval 4 days for all the zones and scavenging Period is 1 Day.

I performed the reconciliation and restarted the DHCP services in both DC and is ADC. Also I checked by restarting our ADC as it was also showing the same thing but it also doesn't work however I have not cheeked  by restarting our DC yet.

Please suggest if anyone having the solution for this.

Cloud Class® Course: SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

I have a Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server setup that currently has all of the Server 2016 updates available except for the KB4103720 update (even though I have selected the WSUS server to download all of the Server 2016 updates).

I have verified this by sorting the updates chronologically by their KB numbers and by doing a search for the KB4103720 update.

I have checked and all other necessary Server 2016 updates are currently available within this WSUS server. I haven't selected for any of the other updates such as Windows 10 updates to download to the WSUS server yet since currently I only need it to update the Server 2016 servers within our network. I will add the Windows 10 updates later.

How can I manually add or make sure that this KB4103720 Server 2016 update is available to push out to the Server 2016 servers?
SSRS Report Builder - Export to CSV issue; Double Quotes exist for each record.

We have a report that is scheduled to produce a CSV file.
This file is consumed by another application and requires specific formatting in order to successfully process the file.
The following entry has been configured within the 'rsreportserver.config' file:

<Extension Name="CSV (No Header)" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.DataRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataRendering">
                              <Name Language="en-AU"> CSV No Header</Name>

The file that is being generated from this contains double quotes at the start and end of each record (see below).
"180603,06/06/2018,AB,123,A,AB,123456789,-1234.56,Team Journal,21/05/2018 to 03/06/2018,12345,N,I,NA,TEAMJNL,123"

The output we need is shown below:
Hi Experts,

I have a .bat file that is used to backup data.  I want to include all folders / files on a drive but exclude one folder.  I can't seem to get it to do the exclusion.

Here is the WinZip Command Line.

"C:\Program Files\WINZIP\WZZIP.EXE"  -xd\\PL1\PL1-G-Data\Photos\*.*   "Z:\PATLAPTOP1\PL1-G-Data\%date%\PL1-G PatData All.ZIP" "\\PL1\PL1-G-PatData\*.*"  -r -p

- Job is run on the PC where the 'Z:' Drive is located.
- Drive to be zipped is on PC \\PL1.
-  The Drive to be zipped is PL1-G-PatData.
- Folder (with sub folders) that needs to be excluded is PL1-G-Data\Photos

What needs to be done to get it exclude the PL1-G-Data\Photos folder.  Right now there are no errors but it is including the Photos folder?

Note: If using an 'Exclusion Parameter File' is a better way them I ok with it.

What steps are necessary to determine if a Windows 8.1 OS that was upgraded to Windows 10 (with the data and apps being preserved) can be downgraded back to Windows 8.1?
I just upgraded a Windows 8.1 Pro computer to Windows 10 Pro by performing an upgrade that kept the files and applications in tact.

Now around 33% of the time when users logon onto the computer using their local Windows profiles they receive an error that says "C:\Windows\system32\config\systeprofile\Desktop is unavailable. If the location is on this PC, make sure the device or drive is connected or the disc is inserted, and then try again. If the location is on a network, make sure you're connected to the network or Internet, and then try again. If the location still can't be found, it might have been moved or deleted" (see the screenshot).

This computer isn't joined to any domains.

If we log off of the computer and then log on again (with the same or a different local user account) the logon is successful.

I have run the SFC /scannow and the following DISM commands which have all run successfully and reported no errors.

What can I do to fix this issue so that this error will stop occurring?

DISM commands I have run:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Checkhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth

Is there any way of setting Server 2016 OS to automatically reboot immediately after installing Windows updates?

Or is there a way of setting Server 2016 to automatically reboot immediately when an operating system restart is required?

I would like to be able to enable this setting while I am first setting up Server 2016 operating systems and then once all initial updates have been installed I will disable this setting.
What is the command line command to run Disk Cleanup?

Disk cleanup can be launched by right-clicking on a drive letter and then clicking on the "Disk Cleanup" button (within the General tab).

How can I determine if an existing registry DWORD value is 32-bit or 64-bit?

I need to create several DWORD values within the registry on a Server 2016 Datacenter OS.

I am examining the registry on another Server 2016 Datacenter OS and am going to recreate these values within another Server 2016 Datacenter OS. However, while examining the registry on the server with these registry values I'm not sure if these DWORD values are 32-bit or 64-bit.

Or should I just assume that because the operating system is Server 2016 Datacenter that all DWORD values should be created as 64-bit?

Or how much of a difference does it make if the DWORD value is created as a 32-bit value when it should be a 64-bit value?
What are the steps to directly upgrade Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 so that all programs, user accounts, and customizations will remain in place after the upgrade to Windows 10 completes?

Is this as easy as downloading the Windows 10 ISO file into Windows 8.1 and then running the Windows 10 setup file within the Windows 8.1 OS and following the prompts to upgrade?
What kind of information and data is contained within the CBS logs (found within the C:\Windows\System32\Logs\CBS folder)?
When I signed up for my Microsoft Action Pack agreement in February of this year one of the benefits I was told I would receive would be 10 tech support incidents per year.

I would now like to use this benefit to obtain tech support for Server 2016 Datacenter.

I have logged onto the Microsoft Action Pack website but I'm not sure where to go to submit such a tech support request.

Where within the Microsoft Action Pack website do I go so I can submit such a tech support request?

If possible can you provide me with the steps on how to get there through the main Action Pack website after logging on and then also provide me with the exact URL address I can use to go to this location on the site directly?
How can Revo be used to uninstall a program using only its C:\Program Files (86)\ folder location?

This program no longer appears within the Programs and Features List or the Programs list on the Windows 10 computer but continues to run.

The only information I have on it is its program folder location within the C:\Program Files (86)\ folder.

Where do I go within the Revo uninstaller program to enter this program path to have this unwanted program completely uninstalled?
What percent use Windows versus Mac versus other?

I am curious to see the difference...
