I rebuilt a terminal server (S2012 R2) due to WMI problems.  I've got a list of steps to follow when building a new TS server  - software to install, GPO, how/where to add to the server farm, etc.  I followed the list, like usual and gave it a last reboot.  
Users login and work away, yet in the server manager, no user logged into that server show up in the list.  They do appear in the task manager under the users tab, so I know they're there and working.
I researched this and tried most things suggested, but no luck.

Hello we have an IIS hosted website, binded to Citrix XenApp Store Front.  We have an AD server, Web Server, Citrix Server.
Currently in order to access site users need a CAC/PKI once this have authenticated they must enter a username & password to get into store front to see their application(s).  What we would like to do is get rid of the username & password, have just CAC/PKI authentication.

I'm currently in the midst of a 2013 to 2016 Exchange migration.  Included with this migration is standing up a new Exchange 2013 servers as part of a storage refresh.  We need to keep our Exchnage 2013 enviroment around for some legacy applications.  I've been using New-MigrationBatch, Start-Migration-Batch, and Complete-MigrationBatch to stage the migration batches to copy most of the data over to the new databases on 2016 manuly complete at the desired time.  This has worked flawlessly for all mailboxes moving from 2013 to 2016.  If the batch contains a 2013 to 2013 migration it appears the associated move-request moves the mailbox and does not wait to be manually completed as it should almost like it thinks the autocomplete switch is being used.  I've gotten around this by seperating out the 2013 moves into a separate batch a leveraging a foreach loop with the New-MoveRequest cmdlet with the -suspendwhenreadytocomplete to overcome this.  I've not come across this before granted most of my migration previously have been 2010 to 2013, 2013 to 2016, or 2010 to 2016 never a mixed batch.  I can't find anything that would indicate this is by design or a bug.  I was wondering if anyone has come across this before.

I'm currently using a Gmail account for Veeam email notifications using the server addresses shown in the first screenshot and am successfully receiving Veeam email notifications.

However when I try to use the exact same Gmail email address and email server settings for Server 2016 WSUS email notifications (in the second and third screenshots) these email server address notifications don't work. I receive the error message shown in the last screenshot which says

"System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. i8sm33761833pgq.67 - gsmtp
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.SoapExceptionProcessor.DeserializeAndThrow(SoapException soapException)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.DatabaseAccess.AdminDataAccessProxy.SendTestEmail(String emailLanguage, String smtpUserName, String senderEmailAddress, String smtpHostName, Int32 smtpPort, String recipients)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.EmailNotificationConfiguration.SendTestEmail()
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.UI.SnapIn.Dialogs.EmailNotificationSettingsDialog.backgroundWorker_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)."

There is no where within the Server 2016 WSUS email notification settings to select to use secure connection (SSL/TLS).

So what is the correct Gmail email address server address setting to use to successfully send notification emails?

Also access to task manager. Thanks

Dear Experts, we have 3 different domains and each of them has its own AD server and domain users. However the users have not joined domains. The request is building 1 ShareFile Server for all 3 domains.

With only 1 domain, it is easy when we just need to join the ShareFile to domain and grant the permissions based on domain users, groups but we do not know how to do it with 3 domains. Do you have any idea? Please help!

In other words, can we authenticate an user from a domain to a different AD server in different domain?

[Webinar] Cloud and Mobile-First Strategy

Maybe you’ve fully adopted the cloud since the beginning. Or maybe you started with on-prem resources but are pursuing a “cloud and mobile first” strategy. Getting to that end state has its challenges. Discover how to build out a 100% cloud and mobile IT strategy in this webinar.

our SBS 2011 scheduled backup keeps failing because of error 2155348129

on a previous accepted answer I found the instructions to command line enter vssadmin list writers so I did that and the only error I see is a

non retryable error for the SQLServerWriter

one other thing I noticed is that, in the Manage drive in file explorer, I went into our backup disk Disk 2 and changed the name of the drive (I did this this morning so it is not the reason for the backup not working).  but when running through the Backup Wizard it shows that backups are scheduled to go to Disk 1 and the name is the previous name before I changed the partition name.  The drive does not show up with a drive letter but backups still happened without a hitch.

any help is appreciated.

Hi, I built a server in a KMS license environment and then moved it to a DMZ, so it needs to be activated by phone.

I've got a MAK code, which has been used all over the estate, and i've used:

slmgr -upk (to remove the kms links)
slmgr -ipk <mak> (to add the new key)

and it says it's loaded successfully but when I run slui /4 it says Access Denied, contact your administrator. (Hi!) and when i run slui it asks me for a key.  If I use the same key, as before it says This key didn't work, please check it and try again or try a different key.

I get this in event viewer (googling now) - License Activation (slui.exe) failed with the following error code:
hr=0xC004F074


Any tips?

I support Windows 10 users who intermittently have issues with the Windows 10 clipboard.

Sometimes items that are placed within the Windows 10 clipboard are not able to be pasted.

So far this issue has only been able to be fixed by rebooting the operating system.

What else can be done to fix this issue without having to reboot the Windows 10 operating system?

Hi techs,
I cant find anything online re: what happens when you right click on start > choose shutdown in server 2012.
Do you get the box that forces you to choose a reason?
Does the server just shutdown?
etc...

In SCCM , my Inventoried Software doesn't show IE (except for v.7 and 8) so I when I run query on IE versions, I get no results.
If I do a software report, again, no IE (iexplore.exe)

Is it because the new versions of IE come in as KBs and aren't in add/remove programs?
How can I query for IE 9,10,11?

I tried this:

select SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.LastLogonUserName, SMS_R_System.LastLogonTimestamp from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile on SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FilePath like "%\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\" and SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileName like "iexplore.exe" and SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileVersion like "10.%"

Hi - I have a problem with one particular client.  We are running SBS 2011 and for years everything has been OK.  Suddenly I am getting an error that the site can't be reached.  I setup the router (using Teamviewer) to allow remote management.  But I get the same error when I attempted to access the router remotely - so both the https://Remote.xxx.com or try to access the router with https://remote.xxx.com:8080 it fails.  

We are using Cablevision and they say they can reach the router and everything worked on their side.  Since the router is the entry point I thought that maybe the problem might be with the router so we replaced the router and it made no change at all.  

The problem happens exactly the same way if I use either the IP address or the remote.xxx.com.

One  more thing - Remote Desktop Connections works when I open the port (remote.xxx.com:3380)

Any help would really be appreciated.
Thanks

We have a team of Wintel sysadmins & there has been cases where critical files / folders were
accidentally deleted & we need to trace who/what deleted it : not logins to all server are
video-recorded (by tools like Privilege Access Manager or Cyberark).

Not too conversant with setting up Tripwire to monitor as it ended up thousands of lines were
logged daily : too many irrelevant or false positives.

I know in Unix ACL, we can set ACLs on certain files/folder to log to audit trail if files got deleted.
Can provide step by step instructions on how this can be done in Windows 2008 R2 ?  Using
Tripwire is too unwieldy.

Will be good to provide the option of configuring locally (if I plan to do it only for a few servers)
as well as via GPO (if I plan to do it on a big number of servers)

We have apps that send alerts out via SNMP (think it's v2 SNMP): is there any way these
events are sent to an SMTP server (we use Exchange) or to SolarWind (our monitoring tool)?
If sent to SolarWind, we want to be alerted via email or SMS.

Our apps read the events from a custom Oracle DB (from a SWIFT application).

We have Splunk SIEM being deployed but not ready yet so wanted to use the other 2 options 1st.
