We have 2 subnets .44.0 and 45.0 that are on 1 vlan. I dont manage the vlan just the dhcp server. Should I setup a superscope? Is it possible to put both subnets in a normal DHCP scope?

Also when I create it, how do I determine the subnet mask?

Today, when I tried to edit some Mailbox , Meeting Roomor even Distribution group AD attributes I always got this error message:

The object domain.com/Users/Factory Meeting Room 1 has been corrupted, and it's in an inconsistent state. The following validation errors happened:
________________________________________
The access control entry defines the ObjectType '9b099da6-0d3c-164c-8bee-5199d7165cbd' that can't be resolved.

I have confirmed that repadmin /replsum and repadmin /showrepl both returns no error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone here please share some steps and the procedure to decommission Windows Server 2012 R2 domain controllers which hold all FSMO role and AD-Integrated DNS servers ?

Is there any outage on the Exchange email flow or the network when doing it ?

My client has a single Server 2008R2 machine. Boot drive is operating system only... a mirrored drive set that is getting full. There is also a RAID 5 array with all of their data. This drive is fine and has plenty of space left. There are open slots in the controller so I installed a pair of larger drives and mirrored them to replace the old boot drive (C:\). What is the best way to copy/image/mirror/whatever the original operating system to the new drive(s) making them bootable and with the least effort? I can take the server down on the weekends if necessary. There is no VM involved at all. New drives are installed and mirrored but I have not yet configured them as a volume. Is there a particular piece of software that will handle this?

Someone setup an RDS server for trial in domain environment which is due to expire within 30 days.  It was setup using the QuickStart option where it installed all the roles  (RD Broker Connection, RD Session Host, and RD Web Access) in one server called SERVER1.  The RD Licensing Server was never added to the deployment server.

Here is my question or what I need help with
A second RDS system has been setup.  It was configured with 2 servers (RDBroker, and RDLicense).  The "RD Broker Connection", "RD Host Session", and the "RD Web Access" roles are running on the RDBroker Server.  The "RD Licensing" is running on RDLicense Server.  The License is configured and activated without any issues.  We have successfully created a collection and linked it to the RD Host Session on the RD Broker without any issue.

Can we add this new "RD Licensing" Server running on RDBroker to the Old RD Broker DEPLOYMENT SERVERS?  Can the new "RD Licensing" server with User CAL type be able to licence both RD Brokers?  There is a single "RD Session Host" running on each RD Broker.  It's all setup in a single domain /single forest environment.

Or should I uninstall all the roles from the old RDS and add the server as a second "RD Session Host" on the new "RD Broker" and configure and new collection for it?

Thanks

In an attempt to stop all domain users from login to a few critical financial processing PCs (that handles large payments amounts), I've removed "Domain Users" & the following 2 & it worked:
  1. NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users (S-1-5-11)
  2. NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE (S-1-5-4)

How do I add them back?  When I enter the above verbatim, it doesn't list them though
"Domain Users" are listed & I could add it back.  A couple of PCs are non-payment PCs
& I accidentally removed the above 2 & Domain Users   from the local "Users" group

Hi All

We currently have a domain xyz.com. We have also bought a new domain zzz.com. In xyz.com we have exchange 2003. In zzz.com we have not used as yet. We have licenses for exchange 2013 SP1 with 260 CALS. In future we will get rid of xyz.com.
xyz.com currently has windows server 2012 as DC and exchange 2003 with other file servers and application servers.The functional level of domain is at 2003

zzz.com currently uses gsuite for users email. We need to install exhchange 2013 and get the mails to this exchange server
Can 2 domains be on the same network? e.g. dc for xyz.com 10.10.10.5, dc for zzz.com 10.10.10.7

We would like to move to exchange 2013. Our possible solution is to install a domain controller for zzz.com and use that domain controller to install new exchange 2013. if we make the domains trust each other can users login to their mailboxes fine without any issues. Also how can i co-exist exchange 2013 and exchange 2003. Users in one domain should be able to access files email applications in another domain if I do put up a dc for zzz.com

What would be the best possible solution for my scenario?
Do you need to have a domain controller for any exchange installation? i need a confirmation on this
Can a child domain be created and exchange installed in it? i have read that there is only one exchange per forest
Where are exchange CALS used in exchange 2013? Can CALS cause users to be logged of or not been able to connect
If the number of CALS is per…

Have a wierd DNS behavoiur and wanted to check my understanding of the flow of DNS in MS DNS servers

  1. A User types in address www.company.com.uk
  2. If the sites Server 2008 R2 server is the authoritative server it responds with the details
  3. If the sites Server isnt authoritative, it asks via the default gateway, the DNS server of the ISP
  4. If that isnt returned in time, it then queries the root hint server for that domain prefix alphanumeric c.root-ervers.net

In short it does check the root hints last

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 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?

Where do you go within Server 2016 Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to view where the downloaded updates are being stored?

We've got our users set up for roaming profiles when they log into our terminal servers (Server 2012 R2).
When a user logs in, a folder is created on the terminal server under c:\users with the user's login name.  Any changes the user does are written to that folder.  When the user logs off, that folder is copied to the user's roaming profile stored on another server.  

This works like a charm for all but one user.  When that user logs in, no folder is created with his user name in c:\users, so when he logs off, nothing is saved to his roaming profile.  Each time he logs in, the system thinks it's his first time logging in and he has to have his email set up and a few icons removed.

We've already recreated his profile (several times), just like we've done every other time.  This user is different.  Comparing him to all other users on the DC, same-same.

I'm stumped on this one.

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?
