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.

A user's Windows 10 computer bluescreened a couple hours ago.

The details of this crash are listed below.

What methods can I use to troubleshoot this issue and determine what can be done to prevent the computer from blue screening in the future?

Also, what are the best utilities for analyzing the C:\Windows\Memory.dmp file to help solve this issue

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?

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?

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.

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?

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?

Hi, for a reason or another any new DFS I'm creating can be mapped as usual, but it's not displayed for everyone.  All users have the same permissions on the NTFS and DFS shares.  

Not matter how (GPO or manually in shell) it's done it's not visible.   When I use net use x: \\domain.com\dfs-drive /y  I don't get an error, it's successful but the DFS share is not visible.  

When I map an DFS that has been created before this issue I have not problem.  All DFS have been created on the same DC, same security, same NFTS, same servers.  

Thank you

What is the best method to use to determine the process or application name of an open Windows 10 program?

This is sometimes difficult to determine.

For example how can I determine what the name of the program or application is shown in this screenshot?

How can I use Windows task manager to help me do this or what other programs or utilities will help me do this?

How can I determine exactly what program file is being launched by examining the program's shortcut within Windows 10?

The exact path and filename of the program that is being launched aren't always intuitively obvious by examing the properties of the shortcut.

For example, the "Start in" section of the Adobe Acrobat XI Pro application is completely blank (see the screenshot).

So what is the best method to use to determine exactly what path and application is being launched when the program shortcut is clicked on?
