Operating systems perform basic tasks, such as recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keeping track of files and directories on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. For large systems, the operating system makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time do not interfere with each other. The operating system is also responsible for security, ensuring that unauthorized users do not access the system. Operating systems provide a software platform on top of which other programs, called application programs, can run.

I had this question after viewing Adding additional domain controllers for Exchange 2010.

My question is how can I read a copy of the KB article that the original link, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316300 , pointed to:

There is a link to an old MS KB article, but the article is not present at that location to their site.

Here is the part of the information that I was interested in:
________________________________________
This is called suitability test that Exchange does and only the DC's that it finds capable or passing are included.

 Can you check Netlogon on DC1 please.

 DC1.domain.local      CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 0 1

I paid for and got some DELL support to reinstall a "fresh" copy of my Windows 2008 R2 OS after a virus essentially wiped out my network.  So, now I have to re-setup my network so that everything on the network connects and I can connect to the internet thru my SonicWALL device.  Problem for me is that I haven't had to do anything like this since 2013, when I first set up my server and I'm lost.  I can't get the basic network set up and this is, obviously, delaying my restoration of my Remote Desktop Setup (which I've worked on more recently, so I think if I can get the basic network up and running (and I mean "just the basics"), then I'll be able to move on and set up everything else I need to provide remote access to my application.  Being a programmer first and technician last, I just don't have the experience setting up networks, OS setup, etc. that other people in this forum have.  So the question at this point is how do I set up the server OS to connect to the rest of my network and the internet?

Windows 10 machine that is no longer recognizing anything plug into USB.  It just shows them as other devices in device manager.  This all started from unplugging a USB printer, after that, everything went to that mode.  We tried plugging the printer back in, change what ports stuff is plugged into.  Not even the keyboard and mouse will work.  I tried reinstalling the Intel IME and I'm getting an error

Extend system drive on a 2008R2 server. From Google basically I found where everyone said it takes a third-party software to accomplish this task. This morning in a desire to practice using some of this software I set up a lab server 2008R2. Partitioned the first drive (300GB) into a 100 GB partition and a 200GB partition which I installed the OS to the first 100  GB partition. Installed some drivers, rebooted server. Formatted the 200GB partition copied a few files over to it and rebooted again. All looked good and was ready to download 3rd party software to begin testing.
However on a whim I went into Disk Management, deleted the second partition click on the C: (system) drive and the extend button was available. I extended the 100GB C: to a total of 300GB now.

Is this a fluke, am I missing something

My Os is win 10 prof 64 bit and I recently underwent a hacking and I am uncertain if the hacker had left any malware to come to live whenever the pc is booted on.  Hope if the Experts please take a look at the list of processes that are running and flag for me any potential threat that is still running.  Thank u. regards

I restored macOS 10.13.3 from current Time Machine backup, now some files cannot be located with Finder or Spotlight. Needed files were in UserName I used on daily basis.

I restored because logging into the other username made OS inaccessible - did not respond to any keystroke input.

Assuming they were on TM backup, how can I locate the files?

Hi,
I am working on an Asus X751. When you press on the power button the laptop goes immediately into the BIOS every time. I have tried disabling safe boot,
removing the user and administrator passwords in the BIOS.
I have taken the laptop apart and replaced the CMOS battery but that din't help. I have removed the the main battery and the CMOS battery
and held the power button down for 30 seconds and that didn't help.
The laptop will only boot to the BIOS and not the splash screen or OS.
Any ideas?

My OS is win10 pro 64 bit.  Due to recent security hacking on my pc, I am thinking if NordVPN would provide the security preventing everyone from entry.  I have Avast Premier protection.  Or can I use ZoneAlarm or some other software.  Thank u and regards.

What's the best way to partition the Hyper-V host install?  Can I setup the HOST with one partition for the operating system and one partition for the data for the VM's?

What's the best way to partition the Hyper-V guest VM's?  Should I setup the GUEST operating systems with separate partitions for the operating system and data?

I have a new server that has been modified to be a VM server using Hyper-V.  I have six 600GB HDD to use and the system/OS drive is 300GB.  I've installed Hpyer-V and created 4 virtual machines and installed the OS Win2012 server on all four.  I want to begin to create hard drives for each virtual machine and my question is do I first RAID all six HDD's or do I not RIAD them first?  Currently four of the six HDD are set at RAID 5 and I was think all six should be set with RAID 10.
My first time with Hyper-V and virtualization.

How much personally identifiable information is contained in the C:\windows\MEMORY.DMP file?

I would like to upload the C:\windows\MEMORY.DMP file for a Windows 10 computer that keeps blue screening but first I need to know what personally identifiable information such as user names, company names, product keys, etc. is included within this file that will be able to be viewed by those who analyze this file?

Hi Experts,

We used to get the below OS windows alerts when a planned reboot happend during patch of the OS windows servers. we receive all those alerts as incidents. This alerts are auto resolve after interval of 30 minutes. Therefore we want to reconfigure alerts in SCOM not to generate during patch time or check for 30 minutes for auto resolve. And we want those alerts as incidents if auto resolve not happend. Please guide me how to configure in SCOM console for auto resolve.

Newbie Question here.
Before recent update was running successfully (long time). Windows 10 and dual monitors.
Since recent update.
MS insists I can only run basic graphics (1 chunky display monitor)
Any attempt to automatically or manually restore or replace the graphics driver.
Computer has a good laughs - sticks the metaphorical finger up.
Blue screens if I lucky.
Or simply crashes.

Not new to trashing and reinstalling the OS to get past issues like this.
But surely there must be a straight forward way of saying to the PC.
Hey, it worked perfectly well before - why not now?

Have tried various methods of rolling back out of the update.
Rolling back to previous driver.
Uninstalling and re-installing
Windows driver update
3rd Party driver tools
Replacing the driver with on from a similar machine.

Win 10 Version 109 (OS Build 16299. 192)
Graphics: Displays - Microsoft Basic Display Driver (but we know that)
Graphics Hardware: Intel(R) Q45/Q43 Chipset -WDDM 1.1 (standard on board)

I am looking for ideas - that do not involve a total re-spray ...... ;¬))

Good afternoon.  I am having an issue with a computer running Windows 7 with the specific error:

Problem signature:

Problem Event Name:                         BlueScreen

OS Version:                                          6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48

Locale ID:                                             1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCCode:                                               9f

BCP1:                                                    0000000000000003

BCP3:                                                    FFFFF800048073D8

BCP4:                                                    FFFFFA8032910870

OS Version:                                          6_1_7601

Service Pack:                                       1_0

Product:                                               256_1

Files that help describe the problem:

C:\Windows\Minidump\012518-13322-01.dmp

C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-953696-0.sysdata.xml

The files are attached.  I attempted to use a BlueScreenView on the dmp file and came up with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE caused by the ntoskrnl.exe driver.  After reviewing online though, it appears the debugging can go deeper than that.  Any help is appreciated, I have uploaded the error files.  I'm just looking to narrow down the driver in question.

Thank you.

Tried anything and everything in safe mode etc.  I can see/access data on drive via safe mode command prompt.  Did various recommended safemode options to repair, rebooted also  with different safe mode options and now luck.  any ideas how to get past the loop?  I have allowed it to sit for 8 hours to try and finish the loop.  No luck.


I restored the system from backup and the loop problem is still there.  Will not end and all the data is there but it now has the drives changed.  There is an X drive with system files on it and an a D drive with user created files etc.  

Hardware is HP desktop
Windows 7.

I bought the machine with no hard drive at all. Bought a new one and installed it. Machine is licensed for Win7 Pro and when I use my disk to start the installation, it gets to the screen where you select where you want to install the OS, but it shows none at all. I boot into the BIOS and I can definitely see the new Western Digital Hard Drive. I've been Googling for a couple of hours with no luck, so I'm  hoping someone will have some guidance here. Thank you!
