I configure it and work if launch it, the problem is when I schedule it. It works only if I connect to server with RDP.

How Blockchain Is Impacting Every Industry

Blockchain expert Alex Tapscott talks to Acronis VP Frank Jablonski about this revolutionary technology and how it's making inroads into other industries and facets of everyday life.

Hi all,
We are going to deploy Office 2016 (Currently using Office 2010) through SCCM 2012, what do we have to take into account before update process?
Also how does SCCM uninstalls the old office and installs the new one on the top? how does it differentiates between office32 bit and 64? and then install the right version?
Any articles and steps on how to deploy and configure it will be helpful.
Would installing office 2016 through SCCM would be the best way? or deploying it through Group policy will be better?

Thanks.

Our servers had automatic update set on all of the them.  It has run flawlessly for years.  Up until yesterdays update KB:4038774 and KB:4036479.  The updates would install and then have to have a reboot.  After the reboot, the server update process attempts to install both KBs again and another reboot in 15 minutes.  And again, again, again.  

We would like to uninstall the update and turn off automatic updates on all of our servers.  We have tried the following from the command line  wusa /uninstall /kb:4038774 /quiet /norestart

Hello, We currently are trying to push printers with Group Policy to our different computer labs. However, it does not seem to be working correctly. When I run a Group Policy Results it shows the policy was successful but it's not adding the correct printer.

We use Papercut so we need print jobs to go to the print server, not direct to the Printer. We also have about 300+ printers we are trying to deploy using group policy.
(YES we have group Policy Loopback turned on for MERGE)

We are doing User config -> Preferences -> control panel settings -> printers
New -> Shared Printer

Here is our setup in screenshots

Hi,
We have a DFS configuration on a clustered 2008 R2 server environment. It has been working fine before but now it is failing to work.
The DFS replicted folders woult not come online when failing over to the secondary DFS server.
In the cluster event logs i have the following:

Event ID 1205
The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or application 'File cluster' completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered service or application.

Event ID 1069
Cluster resource 'DFSR D:\Data\Corporate' in clustered service or application 'File cluster' failed.

I have about 200 of these events logged when trying to come online in the secondary cluster server node.

I ran the cluster validation report, but obviously due to the time I couldnt do a full one which brings the cluster disks offline. I have cluster resource warnings:
This resource is not configured to use the standard 'Pending timeout' value for the resource type. 'Pending timeout' specifies the length of time the resource can take to change states between Online and Offline before the Cluster service puts the resource in the Failed state. The default setting is generally recommended, but there may be situations where other values may be preferable. This setting can be configured in Failover Cluster Manager by selecting 'Properties' and then selecting the 'Policies' tab.

This is currently set to 15 minutes, and has been…

Hello -

I am looking for a way to change a bulk of computer names within Windows Server 2012 multi domain AD structure? We have many computer names that need to be updated to our new naming convention. I appreciate all your help!

So, I can access a file server in the network, I was given a login credentials- username and password.
I will specifically use this login/pw to access files in a server to allow reading and writing to this particular folder.
Windows authentication is used to login to the app.

I would like to switch to this  ID/pw given to me to authenticate and authorize writing and reading files to the server.

How would I sign in to this identity when I have to write and read files to this particular server? And then when I'm done, Ill switch it back to my original id/pw  identity?

Hey Guys

I have a SBS 2011 server - from all workstations and even on the server itself - if i clicked a shared folder - it takes a like a minute for it to open. I see the progress bar moving, just really slow.

I checked task manager - memory and cpu usage are fine, on the server itself, opening regular folders and apps open fine, its just the shared folders, any thoughts??

I am running a Hyper-V VM on my windows server 2012 r2 server.  When I attempt to run the Event viewer or windows backup on the vm, I get an error saying "MMC could not create the snap-in;  The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.  Name: Windows Server Backup".  I of course googled it and have tried several "Fixes" but none have seemed to do the trick.

I have tried a registry key delete, replace a machine.cfg file, re-install gpedit.

Other thoughts or ideas?

Hi,

Before I started to upgrade my older ESXi server from v5.5u1 into the latest v6.5u1, I reckon I must do the VCenter upgrade first.

I’d like to perform VMware VCenter server migration from:

Physical box
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows vCenter Server 6.0 Update 1b
SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Database – 750 GB size

Into the latest edition of  VMware VCenter Server appliance vCenter Server 6.5 Update 1.

My question is:

1.      How can I perform the migration of the dvSwitch to the Virtual Appliance during the business hours with no downtime ?
2.      Does the VCSA capable to handle the large SQL server database size or does the conversion time will be very long due to its size ?
3.      CBT will be reset hence all VM image backup with Veeam will be running again from full backup not incremental ? How to prevent this issue ?

Hi All,

'Allow Logon Through Remote Desktop Services' and 'Allow Logon Locally'

I ran gpupdate /force on the DC, but when trying to remote in, i get user is not authorized

As a network administrator who assigns and configures file and folder permissions for our users, one of my challenges is keeping track  of and knowing what any particular individual has access to.  Of course I can check the properties for any file or folder on the network and see who is able to see it, but from a user level I don't know of a way to see what all files/folders that user can currently see and access.  Is there a tool or method for listing any/all files and folders that a given active directory user has access to on a network drive/resource?

This also comes up when a personnel change takes place.   We'll get requests such as "Give person A access to all of the same files and folders that person B has/had access to.  

What's the best way to do this?

Thanks for any tips.

Hi All,

I've got primary WSUS in the Head Office which downloads the updates and then distributes it into the Site Office 1, 2 and 3.
now, the Site Office 3 WSUS has broken, I need to know how to break the replication so I can just set it as the normal stand alone WSUS server directly downloading from the internet.

Can anyone here please let me know how to break the WSUS structure so that the site office which is now Synchronizing to the head office WSUS server can now be standing on its own?

I'm using WSUS 4.0 on Windows Server 2012 R2.

I had this question after viewing Exchange 2013 DAG - Unable to truncate Microsoft Exchange transaction logs..

People,

Can anyone here please share some steps to be followed to perform Exchange Server 2013 DAG reboot ?

As at the moment, the server PRODMBX01-VM has no Active DB running, only passive mailbox DB, so I wonder if I can just reboot it straight away or do I need to follow certain steps safely?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We have been faulted on several cases where after restoring back an AD
/domain account of a staff who has left (on the request of their
supervisors), we forgot to remove the restored AD accounts.

I know in the days I was doing backup/restore of the proprietary OpenVMS
files, I can immediately set an 'expiry' date (say 1 week) on the restored
files such that they will be expired/deleted.  

Is there anything similar for AD restored account which I can preset an
expiry date the moment I've just restored the AD account to expire/delete
it on an exact future date (based on what's requested in Service Request)?

If there's no such feature, what's the best way to do this to ensure we
don't leave restored accounts lying around after they are no longer
needed?

what does this mean when a user is hitting a web site in their browser and gets this message?

the connection to the dns server timed out

Does it mean that the problem is with THEIR DNS server they are routing through?

Or is the problem with the website's DNS server?

Because no other users using the website have had this error.

thanks!

People,

I'm having very strange issue where my domain joined server cannot open another server\\ServerName\ UNC path ?

Let say the problem server is called PRODSQL03-VM.domain.com

I have logged in as DOMAIN\Administrator to the server above, and opening any other server UNC path \\PRODSQL01-VM\ or \\10.1.1.1\ is always end up with Network Error code: 0x800704CF

From PRODSQL03-VM I can ping to any other server in the domain. But cannot open any other server via FQDN or IP address.

From the other server like PRODSQL01-VM, I can open \\PRODSQL03-VM with no issue.

THere is no firewall running internally and time is already synched to the PDC emulator.

The network card in the VM is e1000 adapter, which is listed as Intel 82574L Gigabit Network adapter.

like shown below:
PRODSQL03-VM
So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,.
