Microsoft server applications are those applications developed specifically, but not necessarily exclusively, on the Windows Server platform. In addition to well-known products like SQL Server, Exchange, Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft Dynamics, Forefront, Lync and Sharepoint, they include applications like Skype, BizTalk, Hyper-V, Groove and Commerce Server. Server applications are managed with the Microsoft System Center.

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.

To use the feature of bulk check in or check out (in the classic SharePoint view) only apply to a user who has "Full Control" permission level?

I would like this feature to be activated for staff who should not have "Full Control" permission levels.

I have found through settings - permissions - permission levels where I would be able to customize a permission level option (see screen shot 1) however I can not tell which option I should select (see screen shot 2).

The example provided is "Full Control", I would edit another level such as Contribute as I do not want to change any of the default settings.

Does anyone know how I can turn this feature on for 'Contribute' level permission or if any of the other default permission levels would grant access to this feature.

I'm trying to configure a SharePoint Online document library so that it includes an Enterprise Keyword column that is required.  The column is added to the library, not to a specific content type, and there are no custom content types defined.  Each time I try to make the column data 'Required' in column settings, the toggle changes back to 'No.'

I am using SharePoint online (365), and am having an issue inviting 'external' users to a site collection. A few months ago, inviting users to the site worked without issue. We were able to share the site with multiple users on different domains, and each was able to view with the proper permissions they were assigned (invited from a group in "People & Groups"). I recently encountered an issue using the "Share" command, or trying to add users to groups. Doing so resulted in a pop-up error "Could not resolve memberid, (followed by the user i was inviting)"; after clearing the browser cache, this issue ceased, and I was able to invite people without getting any errors. The user would show up in the SharePoint groups & Office 365 "People" as 'user_domain_com#ext#sharepointdomain.onmicrosoft.com' after sending the invitation, and the link would send to their email; however when they use the link, they get the following:

If I invite 'user@domain.com', the message is:

"Access denied, the user 'user_domain_com#ext#sharepointdomain.onmicrosoft.com' does not have permission to view the site."

The user's email, name, and info seems to be correctly adding to the groups I assign & invite them to. External sharing is turned on at the top site collection level, and on the site itself. I have checked both via the SharePoint admin center, and the "Site Settings". Additionally, Azure AD shows them as "Users" with their proper email addresses.

Thanks

Hopefully, someone can assist. Ideally this is the 2nd time I have worked with Azure APIs - in more of a sysadmin role vs Developer.

Essentially what I want is to export the Non-Compliance Microsoft Azure Policies to a HTML report, there is no currently way of doing this so worked on my own method.

Connecting to the PolicyAssignments API I have been successfully able to export the: Azure Policy Names, Azure Policy Descriptions however not the Non Compliant resources or policies. Essentially what I am getting back is a '0', which although is really nice! I know it not to be the truth!

Attached to this post is a screenshot of the HTML export I have managed to do, but don't understand why the Resources & Policies are all coming up as '0'.

This is the code I have so far:

$PolicyResults = @()
ForEach ($subid in $subscriptionId)

{

    $Headers = @{
        'authorization' = "Bearer $token"
        'host'          = 'management.azure.com'
        'contentype'    = 'application/json'
    }


    $url = "https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/$subid/providers/Microsoft.Authorization/policyAssignments?api-version=2017-06-01-preview"


    $policies = Invoke-RestMethod  -Uri $url  -Headers $Headers -Method Get

ForEach ($policy in $policies.value) {

    $id = $policy.name
    $resources =

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">
                        <OverrideNames>
                              <Name Language="en-AU"> CSV No Header</Name>
                        </OverrideNames>
                        <Configuration>
                              <DeviceInfo>
                                    <NoHeader>true</NoHeader>
                                    <Extension>CSV</Extension>
                                    <Encoding>UTF-8</Encoding>
                                    <Qualifier></Qualifier>
                              </DeviceInfo>
                        </Configuration>
                  </Extension>

The file that is being generated from this contains double quotes at the start and end of each record (see below).
"""FORMAT BATCH IMPORT, STANDARD 1.0"""
"DREF1,DDATE1,DSOURCE,DCLRENTITY,DENTITYPE,LLDGCODE,LACCNBR,LAMOUNT1,LNARR1,LNARR2,LNARR3,LPRESCSTAT,LGSTTYPE,LGSTRATECODE,BIMPNAME,BCLRENTITY"

The output we need is shown below:
"""FORMAT BATCH IMPORT, STANDARD 1.0"""

In SCCM, our Endpoint Definition deployment runs and a large number of the systems show up in the error tab.

Status:  Failed to install update(s)
Error Code: 0x00000000
Error Description: Success

Makes no sense.  I have read that this has something to do with the client needing to check in.

Version is 2016 and the clients are all Windows 10.

I am trying to update a Powershell script we used in SharePoint 2007 for SharePoint 365. It takes SQL data and matches to a SharePoint list, adding and updating items.
In old SharePoint, we can open Powershell and step thru each line of the script.
I don’t know what the equivalent in SharePoint 365 is. I have installed SharePoint Online Management Shell. I can open this and enter some commands for credentials. However, I don’t know the best way to execute my new script, especially to execute one line at a time.
Can you point  me in the right direction?

We are having an issue with Offline Folders disconnecting when saving from Office 365 2016 products. I'll use Word 2016 as the example. Word is version 1708 Build 8431.2250, Windows 10 pro is the OS, Version 1709 build 16299.431 Server is 2008r2 all updates. This seems to have started with April's Office updates.
Steps to reproduce: Open an explorer window to a location set to "always available offline", then open an existing word doc or create a new word doc an save it to the same Offline Folder synced with Sync Center that you opened in explorer, you should see the status go to offline. I've been able to reproduce this at will on multiple computers. The folder will automatically go back online in a few minutes.
I am able to drag and drop to the offline folder with no issues, and I am able to save from Adobe Acrobat Pro and Bluebeam among others with no issue. I only have a problem with Microsoft Office products.
Any help is appreciated.

I am trying to us column formatting in SharePoint Online and am very new to JSON.  I am trying to use conditional formatting based on another column.  This was the code I was using when we could do calculated columns.

I would really appreciate anyones help getting me started on how to do this.

Hello,

I have a testlab environment that has

A local DC (Server 2016) with ADSync to AzureAD
E3 trial subscription
Some Windows 10 Client machines on same LAN as local AD

When a user logs on the client machine, you need to enter username+password for desktop installed apps, such as onedrive and skype.
I dream about SSO and wonder if it can be used to make these desktop apps signin automatically
I'm looking for a way the user would only need to type the username+password for logon to the computer/domain, not to keep having to re-type it for each desktop installed application.

How can I get SSO working with Microsoft Desktop installed apps ?

Hello all, we are migrating from Lync 2010 on prem to Skype for Business in O365. Part of this move will be a transition to Webex for folks who have PTSN conference creation rights. Rather than move everyone to Webex with those rights, were looking to move only those that have created conferences within a defined time period.

Question is, how do i pull a report to show the number of PTSN conferences created per user, over a 12 month period?

thanks in advance.

All of my Office 365 users have a Office 365 Business Premium license.   We have Conference numbers and Conference IDs assigned by our Audio conferencing service. I see where it takes about using 3rd Party and Import/Export, though I don't actually see where you can enter in the 3rd Party Provider and Import the Numbers for the users.

If I select one of the existing Providers they all want a 6 Digit Conference ID, ours are all 4 Digit.

I would like to be able to use our existing Audio Conferencing system with Skype For Business.

Thanks,

Dear Community,

I would like to know, what is Microsoft official policy for using Microsoft Servers; those are used in test and development environment once they passed trial period?
For example, i have deployed many 2016 serves for test infrastructure and they have passed 6 months trial period - so what Microsoft states for such scenarios?

Please suggest and share relevant links. Thanks.

We have a server (Windows Server 2012 Datacenter - build 9200) that from time to time will display a message embedded into the desktop backgound to active the server - - the message will eventually go away after a few minutes or even after a reboot it will go away.  In most cases certain folks will get that message and others will not. It is very sporadic and when the message is on the desktop it appears that this may have ties to certain task schedule tasks locking up.  Has anyone seen this or heard of this?

I'm getting ready to deploy Skype for Business and replace our existing Lync 2013 Enterprise systems.  We've had an enterprise deployment with 2 front end servers since we migrated to 2013 from 2010.  We've used DNS load balancing as we don't have any hardware/virtual appliance load balancing systems.  Our plan is to use S4B Standard and just create a second server running as a failover pool in case of an issue.  

We have 280 Lync enabled employees, 150 of them with Enterprise Voice.  The Skype for Business server will be going on a server with 64GB of RAM, dual Intel Xeon E5-2650L v3 processors (total 2 Sockets, 24 cores, 48 logical procs, at up to 2.09GHz).

Will I have any issues moving the CMS back to a Standard Edition server?  Any other issues I should expect?

Hi all,
   I am in the process of setting up SCCM in a test environment and have so far managed the deployment Of Windows 10 images to test Virtual machines within the same virtual test environment.  Next i will need to begin the process of deploying these images over a VPN from a remote office to the central SCCM server. In order to complete this next deployment test I imagine i will need to allow the PXE boot request form the client machines to pass over/through the VPN tunnel.

I have not yet started the process and hoped for a quick kick start on what i should be allowing through our networking hardware/setup to speed things along later.

thanks in advance

Hi All

On a 2012 install I have the following errors when you run the licensing diagnoser:
"The licensing mode for the remote desktop session is not configured."
Also "The remote desktop session server is within it's grace period, but the RD session host server has not been configured with any license server."
Can't find anything on this - thoughts ideas?
Thanks so much!
