I know this is okay but I wanted to see if anyone could explain to me why our conditional forwarders do not resolve the "Server FQDN". I attached a screen shot. The conditional forwarders are on a domain that is setup on a trust relationship.

Everything else resolves and validates.

Im looking for the registry key that stores the websites we add to compatibility view in IE11? I added them in policy and they dont show up on the list. In the past I have seen them added but just in the registry, it does not show up in the IE11 list for some reason.

I just need to verify the policy is applying to these machines.

Hello Folks,

I've two websites in ASP.NET and staging environment was Window Server (WS) 2008 R2 (Standard).
The SSO (Single Sign-On) was working perfectly on this WS 2008 R2 (Standard).

But the customer wants to move on Windows Server 2012 R2 (Standard), but SSO using form-based authentication couldn't work.
I am having below error

Event code: 4005
Event message: Forms authentication failed for the request.

Did you experience about this problem before for WS 2012 R2 (Standard)?

Best Regards

SBS 2011 in production with multiple Event ID 7011 and the server seems to be sluggish, When I attempt to restart it stuck in:
Please wait for the System Event Notification Service until I hard booted it this weekend. the event IDs 7011 started to crawl back up this morning and the server is slower than normal responding.  
A timeout (90000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the nsi service, netprofm service, fdPHost service, and multiple others.
Also:The following fatal alert was received: 48. Event 36887 Schannel.

 in the application event viewer
Volume Shadow Service (VSS) enent ID 11 and 8193



I'm not sure if Schannel and VSS Error are effecting the symptoms I am experiencing.

Thanks,
joe

Updated info: the server is Dell 2950 configured with 32 GB memory and it is all consumed by the end of the day.

People,

I've got the existing Exchange Server 2013 Standard SP1 that is running as MBX&CAS role in one AD site called Default-First-Site-Name.
I want to decommission it so that I can run the both MBX & CAS on new Win2012 R2 VM so I can configure DAG on the other AD site called Head-Office1.

Existing:
AD Site Default-First-Site-Name
PRODMAIL14-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2008 R2 existing legacy.
PRODMAIL15-VM [Mailbox server only] - Windows Server 2012 R2 newly built for DAG.

AD Site Head-Office1
PRODMAIL20-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 existing newly built for DAG.

Proposed:
AD Site Default-First-Site-Name
PRODMAIL14-VM [Decommissioned]
PRODMAIL15-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 setup for DAG with Head Office.

AD Site Head-Office1
PRODMAIL20-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 existing newly built for DAG with PRODMAIL15-VM.

How to do that safely without causing email flow issue during the production business hours ?
What're the steps in installing CAS so that it does not cause any email flow during the business hours on PRODMAIL15-VM ?
If I install the windows update now during the business hours on PRODMAIL15-VM is there any impact or problem when I reboot it ?

Thanks, in advance.

Every once in awhile one of our computers seems to lose connectivity displaying  the following msg The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

What I to for a temperate fix I disconnect the network cable and log in (as it can't check in with the server for authentication) I remove it from the domain. login with local user and rejoin it to the domain.

How can I prevent this from happening?

What Is Transaction Monitoring and who needs it?

Synthetic Transaction Monitoring that you need for the day to day, which ensures your business website keeps running optimally, and that there is no downtime to impact your customer experience.

I have a VM that is running a very old be stable SBS 2003 server OS. I had a power failure last Saturday at the office and it seems now or any time after a log into the VM SBS 2003 server I get a notice saying that I need to activate windows. I saw an article online saying that it could possibly being caused by a script interface with windows activation running on the VM. however to remove the script manually it is telling me that I need to have the SBS 2003 CD.

I do not have that CD anymore.

Any suggestions

I have the need to give an On-Call non-admin person permissions to start and stop services on all of our Windows servers. I have found you can give this access to one service at a time using Group Policy, but I am need to give this to all services on all servers - without give admin access.

Any ideas?

Hi All,

I'm running Exchange Server 2013 that was inherited or not properly deployed and planned:

Windows Server 2008 R2
C:\ 200 GB [OS - 70GB remaining]
D:\ 1.95 TB [Mailbox DB - 50GB remaining free disk space]
L:\ 200 GB [Logs - 30 GB remaining free disk space]

P:\ 100 GB [Page file - 10 GB remaining]

So If I run the Exchange backup to truncate the log files now during the business hours, does it can cause any mail flow impact ?

Does the D: drive of the Database will run out due to the very large transaction logs being committed to the Exchange database ?

Note: The D: drive cannot be extended anymore to 2 TB due to NTFS - MBR partition

One of our Exchange servers is running out of space on C: (Exchange 2013 on Server 2012R2)  Investigation finds 36GB in System Volume Information, apparently in ShadowStorage:
Shadow Copy Storage association
   For volume: (C:)\\?\Volume{93a1fd71-d1a9-11e5-80c5-806e6f6e6963}\
   Shadow Copy Storage volume: (C:)\\?\Volume{93a1fd71-d1a9-11e5-80c5-806e6f6e6963}\
   Used Shadow Copy Storage space: 35.8 GB (29%)
   Allocated Shadow Copy Storage space: 36.1 GB (30%)
   Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space: 12.0 GB (10%)

However, no shadows are listed:
C:\>vssadmin list shadows
vssadmin 1.1 - Volume Shadow Copy Service administrative command-line tool

No items found that satisfy the query.

WMI shows it as well:

System Volume Information contains 67 huge files with names like {f8597897-5134-11e7-80ed-005056a53d34}{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}.  Access denied to all of them, of course.  Even Takeown has no access.

I suspect some involvement by DPM 2012 which is used to backup this server, but have no real evidence to support that...

Currently running onPrem SharePoint 2016 Exchange 2016.
Attempting to configure eDiscovery on this setup however running into issues.

SharePoint 2016 Trusted Security Token Issuer for Exchange configured to https://*EXCHANGESITE*/autodiscover/metadata/json/1

Exchange Partner Application configured to https://eDiscovery.FQDN/_layouts/15/metadata/json/1

Authentication is currently running via ADFS SAML Claims using a Custom People Picker

Search Result source set to https://EXCHANGESITE/EWS/Exchange.asmx

When trying to select a mailbox to add to a case Error: The connection to the search service application failed.

When looking at the SharePoint logs: "Failed to connect to search serviceSystem.ServiceModel.FaultException....." "Exception of Type Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Discovery.Internal.ExchangeConnectionException"

When looking at the IIS Logs on Exchange : "The user specified by the user-context in the token does not exist."

I'm at a loss at the moment. Exchange Auth Cert (confirmed by get-AuthCert on exchange) is on the SharePoint Servers.
SharePoint search works.
Permission controls via the custom people picker works.

Anyone have any suggestions?

If there is any need for clarification or additional information I am completely available to respond to comments. I am still having the issue.

Thanks

Hi All,

I’ve deployed 15+ Windows 7 PC for the purpose of Local Intranet Kiosk service, my goal is to restrict the only Internet Explorer browser to just 5x website that is allowed by the management team.

http://intranet.domain.com
http://www.domain.com 
http://SharePoint.domain.com
http://www.domain.com/owa 
http://subdomain.domain.com 

other than that should be denied or redirected to the company Intranet Website.
 
how can I achieve this using the Computer Group Policy ?

Do I need to create custom OU and then linked the GPO to that OU or will the AD security group containing 15+ AD computer object will do ?

Hey Guys,

I have 250 new TS cals i need to install on a server, and our vendor sent them in stacks of 25. In the past i had to call Microsoft to have them 'join' it so i can add it to my Terminal Server.

Would anyone happen to know the number for Microsoft to do this?

Hi All,

May I know where shall I manually add the below entry if I handle the Public DNS using Windows Server box in my DMZ ?

DKIM: Create a CNAME record for k1._domainkey.MyDomain.com with this value:
dkim.mcsv.net

Open in new window

SPF: Create a TXT record for MyDomain.com with:
v=spf1 include:servers.mcsv.net ?all

Open in new window


What is the risk or issue when implementing it during the business hours ?

We were hoping this server would make it through the year.  It is a Microsoft 2003 Small business server.  When it boots up just before the login you get and error message lsass.exe system error.  I have looked it up and I have rebooted into Directory Services Mode/safe mode and do not know where to go from here.  In this mode I can access all data, I have internet access and I can see other computers on the network that are marked as shared.  I was even able to copy the entire data folder from the server to a workstations shared folder.  I have found several articles but none go into details about how to actually repair it.  Attached is a PDF of the error. I am not currently at the site but I can remote into the server with a Remote Desktop connection.

When users try to logon to a Server 2003 server using Remote Desktop they receive an error message that says "The system cannot log you on due to the following error: The RPC server is unavailable. Please try again or consult your system administrator" (see the screenshot).

What can be done to fix this?

I had to reboot my 2012 server this morning due to the virtual disk services had used 15 Gb in memory and processor utilization was very high.  Since the reboot the VDS is gradually increasing and I am afraid in a couple of days it will use all the memory available on my server.  I would appreciate any feed back on this.

Thanks
