Ransomware: The New Cyber Threat & How to Stop It

This infographic explains ransomware, type of malware that blocks access to your files or your systems and holds them hostage until a ransom is paid. It also examines the different types of ransomware and explains what you can do to thwart this sinister online threat.  

Hello experts

I have a 2012 r2 rdp server thats working great but we would like to be able to minimise the amount of steps our end users need to do when using our services from their devices. So we tell them to grab the microsoft remote desktop app which most get right the first time and then they need to add the remote resource url and username and password. We are hoping to somehow supply the remote resource url bit automatically, it seems with the previous versions you could export configuration files but with the new version I haven't been able to locate anything. How are others streamlining this process ? The powers that be have asked if there is a way we can host some sort of file on the web the users click on that makes it easier to setup their devices because we are an educational institute and have users connecting from remote locations and cant see us face to face for us to configure their devices. We have rdweb services installed but it has its limitations but we thought maybe there was some way to leverage it for the configuration side (Our clients are all byod so the app is the medium that works on all devices)

HI ,

I checked in our sccm server that hardware scan date is very old. I troubleshooted this issue and found some message and error in attached file. I used this link for the troubleshooting this issue.
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/scotts-it-blog/2015/04/23/hardware-inventory-in-depth-part-1/

Please help me to solve this problem as I can see many systems in sccm servers are showing very old hardware  scan and its not giving correct data. I checked in resource explorer and found hardware scan date is very old.

It is schedule to run every 7 days, It is running also but not all systems are updated hardware scan.  attached screen shot giving more information on the same.

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!

From what I understand, the latest releases of PXE/Syslinux fully support EFI boot now.  I'm trying to get it up and running using similar methodology that I used to get PXELinux working for BIOS machines via WDS.  

I copied syslinux-6.03/efi64/efi/syslinux.efi and syslinux-6.03/efi64/com32/elflink/ldlinux/ldlinux.e64 into the WDS RemoteInstall share under /Boot/x64/ ...

I then ran the following commands on the WDS server to tell it to provide the path to syslinux.efi for efi clients:

wdsutil /set-server /bootprogram:boot\x64\syslinux.efi /architecture:x64uefi
wdsutil /set-server /N12bootprogram:boot\x64\syslinux.efi /architecture:x64uefi

When I attempt to PXE boot an EFI client, I am presented with the following error in WDS:

"Windows Deployment Services Encountered an Error ... Error Code 0xC0000022"

Anyone have any hints as to what I may be doing wrong here?

Back Up Your Microsoft Windows Server®
LVL 4
Back Up Your Microsoft Windows Server®

Back up all your Microsoft Windows Server – on-premises, in remote locations, in private and hybrid clouds. Your entire Windows Server will be backed up in one easy step with patented, block-level disk imaging. We achieve RTOs (recovery time objectives) as low as 15 seconds.

Perhaps you can tell, I had an un-fun day at work today!  We inadvertently sent out a ~3GB package (created as a PCK file) to a distribution point with a slow link.  It caused problems.  I 'stopped' the distribution by:

1. Stopped all SCCM services on the remote secondary DP server.

2. On the central site, I selected 'Delete Package' for the remote site.

3.  After 1+2, bandwidth was still not back to normal.  Thus I killed all of the SCCM services from the central site, then it stopped hogging the WAN link.  That worked.  But as soon as we started up the central  site, the issue came roaring back even though I had killed all of the SCCM services on the secondary site.

After this I tried:

4. Removed the Standard Sender address from the central site to the secondary site and also from the secondary site to the central site.

5. On the secondary server in Windows I removed the central site sever system from the local Administrator group and also the SMS_SitetoSiteConnection

After doing 4 & 5, we have not seen the pipe saturated.  However if comes back, I'm fine with actually removing/deleting the remote site if that could be a final solution. We are moving to SCCM 2016 as soon as it comes out, so I'm not going to miss it if we remove it if that would be a ultimate solution if # 1-5 above will not fix it.

Problem - Lync Phone Edition Error: Can't download certificate because domain is not available (I think this is the message).

Recently upgraded my central system from Lync 2010 to S4B, and am in the process of upgrading my branch office SBAs (AudioCodes Mediant 800s) from Lync 2010 to Lync 2013. All seems to go well until the user tries to sign in after I've finished the update.

Configuring a PIN for the user seems to work (using PIN Authentication on the Lync Phone), client is then prompted that their phone is USB, signs out and back in using the USB method. If we try the USB authentication method from the start it doesn't work. However then PIN authentication seems to work.

Any Ideas?

I need to always prevent the VM on different host. I created the availability set but I am still able to manually move the VM to the same host. How can I completely prevent it to move to the same host?
Thanks.

Access to https site is fast, but getting very slow response when entering query search/requesting data. Same result from various sites and through different proxies. Have Wireshark analysis (attached), which displays long time delta. Just unable to determine the cause. Help would be greatly appreciated...

SCCM 2012 R2 Primary Site Server logs not updating

All components are online and I have restarted the SMS Executive service as well as restarted the server itself. However I have a few problems such as my group discovery is not updating and I can't check the logs to figure out why because they haven't updated since 6/5/2015

When I check monitoring database replication is healthy as is communication between my CAS and Primary site server.

Please let me know what information I can provide you with to help diagnose.

Is it possible to have pickup groups with SBA-homed users?  When I attempt to pickup with SBA users the phones display 'not found'
Users homed to the FE server appear to work correctly.

Hello,

I cannot install Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate 2015 using SSCM 2007.

The error reported is -

"The program for advertisement "UAD20372 has failed because download of the content "UAD00319" - "Install Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite 2015" has failed. The download failed because the content downloaded to the client does not match the content specified in the content source. Possible causes: The content on the distribution point has been manually modified, or a local administrator on the computer has modified the content in the computer's hash. Solution: Refresh the content on the distribution point and retry the download."

I initially created a deployment image for ECS 2015 using the Autodesk set up routine.

The program within SCCM 2007 to start the install is -

\Img\Setup.exe /W /q /I Img\ECS 2015.ini /language en-us

The size of the sccm distribution point for the installation media is 15.5 gb

The cache on the client is set to 25 GB


I understand that hidden files within the installation directory could be a problem.

I have searched for hidden files using -  Dir /S /A:H then  attrib -H /S

Found no hidden files.

I then tried an update of the distribution point.

Neither of these suggestions has resolved the issue.

I see that none of the clients have actually downloaded the installation media to C:\windows\syswow64\ccm but perhaps this is as a result of the fault.

ECS 2015 is large so having to step …

I am finding in my environment that users who are on a VPN remotely have issues making phone calls to anyone else who's internal or even someone outside on their cell phone.

When a call is made, it says "Calling for a few seconds" but it never lets either person answer and talk, the call just fails with the error "Call failed due to network issues"

Call failed due to network issues
This is on Lync 2010 Client.

I turned on Logging and gathered details from the Tracing directory with Snooper and came across these. Any idea of what is going on?

The person they're trying to call is showing up there as a name instead of a number in the log. Is that normal?

I stood up a Lync 2013 server on a single 2012 R2 virtual machine in a datacenter. Users at our branch office have full Lync functionality while at the office. There is a VPN from the branch office to the datacenter network the Lync server is on. Instant messaging works outside of the office however video chat, screen sharing and calls fail due to a network failure. The Lync windows app and mobile app also fail outside of the network. I have researched this issue but haven't found a clear path to know where to start. Thanks for the help.
