Hello Experts,
I have a computer named "Toshi-A"  (Win 7)
its local IP: 192.168.0.14
all its drives are shared with "everyone" "full privileges"

when I try to access from other computers (WIN10)
using
\\Toshi-A\c    ----- I get 0X80070035 Path not found

But when I use
\\192.168.0.14\c
Works just fine.

What do I do to fix this?

First Question.

Ages ago I had two switches given to me: a Cisco 2950 and a 3Com SuperStack 3 3C16592B.  And they've been sitting tossed aside for a long time.  I'm now in the process of decluttering and one has to go.  Which one and why?

Second Question

Now I'm a total noobie when it comes to these switches.  If I remove all passwords and take these machines back to factory or default they can be used as dumb switches, that is, I can plug anything into them and they'll function perfectly normally, getting their IP addresses from my home router?  I've just started playing with the Cisco and examining how it has been configured (shudder VLANs everywhere etc etc etc) so I'd like something simple to start off with before I venture into unknown areas.

I have been doing some analysis of which users use certain applications (these are business apps which record customer data), vs which users get the client software distributed to their machines of Citrix xenapp sessions. I have found numerous mismatches, e.g. people who dont even have accounts in certain business apps get the client software pused out to their laptops or citrix XA desktops. I am trying to put a case to the team who look after SCCM, Citrix and software distribution in general that this is bad practice, but there view is that its not much of a big deal, its just a piece of software on their laptops or Citrix desktop that they will never use. Can you think of any other useful reasons why distributing the client APP for systems that users will never use (as they don't even have accounts) is a bad idea/risks/issues that this causes.anything to add to my case to make them take note most welcome.

CAT6A or CAT6?

The client is building a 100K square feet new manufacturing facility that potentially may have 500+ network cable runs - data, voice, WiFi APs, security cameras, etc. This new facility will be ready to occupy in less than a year.
The cost of deploying CAT6A can be 2.5x or 3x more expensive than CAT6, which is about $20K~30K more.
Does the cost justify the future proof of 10GB?
If you were me, will you propose CAT6A or CAT6? And importantly, the reasoning to convince the client?

Thanks!

PS - all the network devices (Servers, PCs, network switches, etc) that will be moved to the new facility will be 1GB

Hi

I'm moving layer 3 routing from an old core switch to a new core stack we've just purchased.

The stack has been configured with trunks and has access to the network.

The old core will not be removed just the routing will be removed from it.

At the moment the old core has links to different sites

My question is when the routing has been moved over, will I need to move cables over from the old core to the new?

Thanks

Dear Experts,

I am at a client location today and they have a local server that will be accessing different sites with various ports. The client has ASA firewall and Cisco Firepower my question is do I add the access rules in Firepower or directly in ASA?

I am always not sure and the client has no preference.

Please let me know from your experience how to tackle this .

Thanks,

Hello Experts,

I have 2 sites connected via OSPF neighbor relationship using MPLS  and I also have direct connect between the two sites. I had issue with the point to point connection and I removed the static routes between the two sites and OSPF was able to pick the routes again.

Now my Point - to - point connection is up again and I added the static routes but the issue I have now is that the traffic is still going through the ospf and not using the point-to-point path.

How can I make sure the path is reverting back to the point-to-point path, I thought by adding the static path it would pick it up again.

Thanks,

Hello Experts,

I am at a site location and they have BlueCoat Packet shapper S200 , I know the management IP and I know the port number and switch that the management IP is connected too.

I see there are other 2 ethernet cables connected to it and I want to find out their IP addresses and neighboring devices. Is there a way I can find the info from the portal? what will be the best way. I could go to the datacenter and find out but just want to know if there is in anyway I can do this from the portal.

Thanks,

Our business just got a new copier.  The old copier drivers work on the new copier, but I want to update workstations to the new driver.  So, I added a 2nd printer GPO (users/policy/windows/deploy printer) and (computers/policy/windows/deploy printer), so the transition would be seemless to the end user.  In a couple weeks, I want to remove the old printer driver gpo (gpo setup the same way).  If I simply delete the old gpo, will the printers disappear from the users device & printers?  If not, what do I have to do to remove the old printer install?

Our company has installed a pair of Cisco 2960x switches (Model: WS-C2960X-24TS-L) stacked with FlexStack Plus stacking module. Currently, we have configured the local user database for a few network administrators to logon and managing the switches.

Currently, the switch does NOT trigger any audit logging if an administrator logon successfully or logon failure to the switches. When entering a "Show Log" command, the switch only show interface up/down/connect/disconnected status.

Our security team would like us to implement some kind of logging such that there will be a historical Logon audit log whenever a system admin (Or intruder) logon failure or successfully to the network switches both a SSH remote user or thru the console port.

Our team is a bit new to the Cisco network management and would like to know how can…

How did an ethernet port (on Switch1) with Spanning Tree Protocol enabled bring another ethernet switch (Switch2) off-line when connected to it?  Switch2 did not have spanning tree enabled.

I was setting up a new Wireless Controller (switch1) in our test lab.  The test lab has an HP ProCurve Switch(Switch2).  The Wireless Controller is essentially an Ethernet Switch with several Ethernet ports and a bit more functionality.  Apparently the new Aruba Wireless Controller (Switch1) has all of its ethernet ports automatically enabled with Spanning Tree.

When I plugged the Spanning Tree Port 0/0/0 (switch1) into another Ethernet switch port (Switch2) in about 30 seconds … Switch2 became off-line.  As a result aoof the other devices connected to Switch2 were off-line as well.  When I un-lugged the Aruba Wireless Controller (Switch1) connection from Switch2 port that Switch came back on-line.  The Aruba tech noticed that the Aruba (Switch1) port 0/0/0 was in 'Blocking' STP mode when it connected to the Switch2 so the Aruba Tech disabled the Spanning Tree Protocol for that interface port and then the problem went away.  

I wish to understand how STP works and why did that switch port with STP enabled brought the other switch off-line.  I have reviewed some material on-line: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanning_Tree_Protocol   But I still have questions that I wish to clarify.

Question1:  Am I to understand for STP to work correctly that every other switch on the network …

Hey Experts.  Looking to upgrade the Cisco software of several 2960x switches.  Current version is 15.0(2)ex4 and after downloading the newer version 15.2,4e6 but wasn't sure if I can go from where I am to the newer version without any steps in between.  Would appreciate advisement on this.  Thanks Experts.

One of the monthly IT Security metrics in my previous place is
to show  # of 'High' DDoS alerts for the month (leaving out the
Med & Low ones), extracted from Arbor Peakflow of cleanpipe.

Attached is how one such extraction looks like: basically we'll
count the # of 'High' alerts.

In new place, question was raised how this data can be useful
as IT Security metric.

My guess is Audit wants to see a trend (of 6-12 months) of the
# of 'High' alerts for DDoS: if it's always about the same, no
alarm but, say for a particular month, it triples, it's a concern?

Anyone has any clue how this data (or any other Peakflows'
data) could be useful for presentation to serve as IT Security
metrics?

Anyone has any Application DDoS security metrics that could
be useful as IT Security metrics?

With Solar Winds NPM v12.1 I want to get an alert via email if the following snmp
trap is received:

snmpTrapOID = PAN-TRAPS:p​anROUTINGR​outedBGPPe​erEnterEst​ablishedTr​ap

I don't see a specific direct means in Orion for creating an alert from a trap. But
perhaps this could be done with a custom SQL query? Any insight appreciated.

Interface Multilink Vs Interface Virtual Template on Cisco Routers

I would like to know the difference between using the commands :
Interface Multilink Vs Interface Virtual Template

it looks like they achieve the same thing.

Any idea ?

I was doing major upgrades over the weekend of Cisco switches. I needed to run a series of show commands via terminal console. The connection was USB adapter brand ATEN I think to Cisco blue console cable. Many time my Win 10 Dell 7490 laptop would crash BSOD. More likely a putty problem or USB SERIAL adapter driver problem? Any recommendations for a solid professional grade serial connection for my Win 10 laptop or ideas for a fix?

Hi guys

As we have multiple offices at our work place, we constantly have users leaving and new ones beginning. We want to keep a floor map of PC names, their locations along with the users.

This is so that when we want to do things like apply updates and they fail to a PC, we can allocate where they physically are and access that machine or even request the user to do the necessary from their end.

Does anybody use any applications to manage this?

Thank you
Yash
