Via AWS I spun up a Windows Nano Server node. I can manage this from a management server in the same VPC.
 
Using Powershell, I can access the Nano server, add the server to my network domain, create a sheduled task, create a local user group and add a domain user to it, assign user privileges to allow users in this group to run scheduled tasks.
 
This scheduled task shoud read and write to locations on our networked SAN, which lives in the same VPC.
 
But the Nano server does not allow access to the SAN.
 
if I use the Powershell Test-Path cmdlet, specifying the UNC path to a location on the SAN, it complains that access has been denied.
 
And yes, the domain user has complete access to the locations on the SAN.
 
I also tried mapping a drive letter with net use: same result.
 
I have read every document by Microsoft and every blog post and StackOverflow post I thought relevant. Only 1 other person described the same problem, and has no solution. They were on a forum for Docker, and the Docker team discovered this is a problem with Nano, and not with Docker.
 
In my set-up, I don't use containers, I don't use Docker. I guess AWS runs this Nano instance in Hyper-V, but that is outside of my reach.
 
The Samba firewall ports are open and active (File and Printer Sharing).
 
Have you encountered this problem? How did you fix it?
 
One way I can work around this problem is by reading and writing to the Nano server itself. However, I fear that such would …

Automating Your MSP Business
Automating Your MSP Business

The road to profitability.
Delivering superior services is key to ensuring customer satisfaction and the consequent long-term relationships that enable MSPs to lock in predictable, recurring revenue. What's the best way to deliver superior service? One word: automation.

aside from SQL Server databases, what other types of files would need special/app aware backup processes. My understanding (albeit I am not a backup admin) is most default backup solutions don't backup live running database files, so you typically have to use the DBMS backup features and then use your backup solution to 'backup to backup'. I just want to do some assurance work that the backups our admins are doing is either using an application aware product which can handle running files such as databases, or whether they are using other tools such as the DBMS in built backup features to do them.

also apart from SQL databases, what other files need special backup arrangements, e.g. what else would not be covered by standard backup programs, in your standard windows network environment?

Dear, I got this error from today morning. All the servers in this network range could not be accessed like attached screenshot.

When I tried to access these servers from the same ISP (which provide this network range to us), the servers COULD be accessed; but when I tried from other 2 ISPs, they COULD NOT be accessed.

The servers are Window Server 2012R2 Standard, have Kaspersky, Firewall but they are configured properly, nothing change (this error started from today morning)

Can you please suggest?

we are doing some risk assessment work on backup processes from a risk management perspective (we have no responsibility for doing them ourselves), aside from servers, which host the critical data/files, what other devices in a network need considering in backup policies, so we can interview the department responsible to see that they are included/tested.

what documentation would you expect to see an IT department have in place specific to their backup/restore processes? I am trying to get a better idea of the process from a risk and compliance angle, but need to identify either some useful probing questions for the team who do backups, or request some documentation that you would expect to be in place.

Hi,

Let's say I'm an ISP and I lease a 10G transport pipe to an IX (Frankfurt or Amsterdam), with the purpose of buying transit from 2 different tier 1 providers (2 resellers, probably) and peering with content providers.

What happens inside the IX?

Do I get one switch port and I have to rent rack space for my own equipment there? The peerings are physical, with cables between my switches and the peer switches?

Or I only get a VLAN and the peerings are inside the IX main router/switch? And I route the traffic from my VLAN to my peer's VLAN?

Or?

I've googled for the past days, but I'm still confused. Anyone has real world experience with this?

Thank you.

Hey Jim on the off topic concerns, we are seeing an increase in traffic overall based on our efforts. See more information here
http://blog.experts-exchange.com/ee-blog/community-update/

I looked at the stats for the My SQL Server topic and the questions asked, excluding deleted, were up year over year for April and May but saw a decline in June. I'll see if I can find further indications why this is the case.

One thing I use that you may find useful is Google Trends. It can help you see how in general search terms are trending.

We are very interested in the health of topics, feel free to message me if you have some further insights or concerns.

(reading for the first time)  Nice article.  Gotta like that action.  I suppose it's difficult to interpret results and do a cause-and-effect to what EE initiative led to the increase(s) in volume.    

It was very unexpected when Gene agreed to sponsor my SQL Saturday last year, to include free memberships, and was disappointed when that didn't translate to signups.  Perhaps I need to rattle a few cages in my local SQL community.

One thing I never really understood (keep in mind I'm not an SEO guy) is why tags were discontinued from articles in place of the question title.  Last year I tried doing a Google search for keywords that should have resulted in my articles in the search results (SQL Server GROUP BY, SQL Server CASE, etc.) and results were not that hot.  

For some reason my two Requirements Document Template articles get significantly higher views then the other articles.   Maybe I just nailed the title correctly.  A Google search for 'requirement document template reporting' shows my article as #2.

Hello,

I have a Sonicwall TZ 300 firewall being used as a gateway router for a network. The IP address scope is 10.1.1.1-10.1.1.255 on the X0 interface.

I would like to setup another network with the SAME IP address scope of 10.1.1.1 etc.. on the X2 interface to build and test another server which is eventually going to replace the server on the X0 interface. This second network has to be isolated from the the X0 interface so the two servers/networks can exist without seeing each other. Is this possible? How can I do this if so?

I have it working now as long as I use another IP scheme (10.0.0.1...) but I want to use the same IP scope to make it easier to transition to the new server down the line.
