A server is a computer program or a machine that waits for requests from other machines or software (clients) and responds to them. This architecture is called the client–server model. The clients may run on the same computer or may connect to the server over a network. The purpose of a server is to share data or hardware and software resources among clients. Typical computing servers are database servers, file servers, mail servers, print servers, web servers, game servers, and application servers.

So I didn't select a Desktop Experience while installing Server Standard 2016.   And looks like it installed a Core Edition.  Just a CMD command line.  
Does is mean no Desktop Experience is a Core Experience?

Hello - I have a Security Device Scope set on my DHCP server.

10.201.192.20
10.201.207.254

255.255.240.0 /20

What I want to do is assign another scope within my Security Device Scope for 10 Camera, 10 Card Readers and 2 Media Servers. How would I break that scope up into other scopes for the following devices, however using the Security Device Scope?

Thanks,

In this screenshot what is the exact location of the Test Test user (see the bottom of the screenshot)? Is it OU=users,DC=company,DC=com or is it something else?

The domain name for this organization is company.com

I'm sure this is something simple I've missed but I built a new DC. I enabled Remote Desktop Connections in server manager and I'm unable to get a connection to it. The RDP windows times out before it even sees the DC using FQDN or IP address.

RDP to the new DC was working when my old DC was running so I assumed this was a DNS issue (which would mean RDP to IP would work but it does not).

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hello,

I am new to XenServer, coming from VM ESXi, which I presently will say prefer.

New env looks to have either the free or essentials version, but I not sure.  I see two XenServers with Pools under them in the XenServerCenter, but only one of the two(bottom) allows access to alerts where you can set alerts, which I believe indicates it's licensed.

Pool1 w/two host - XServer 6.1 Build 59235p DBV:2010.0521
Pool2 w/Two host - Xserver 7.2 Build 2017-05-11 DBV: 2017.0517

The first of the two(top) It's pool and hosts listed on top, does not allow setting alerts and says licensing upgrade required.   So, I am assuming this setup being managed through the single Xcenter console is not licensed?  

Either way, under the aforementioned pool and hosts there is a vmhost that tends to be high in CPU when you check the top tier Xenserver/Pool performance tab where I see 21 CPU # listed.  I have to go to each vmhost and it's performance tab to find the specific vmhost with the corresponding high CPU usage.  Is  there any free ty in apps or scripting options that could ty things together and definitively tell you which Host is reflecting high resource use, cpu  in particular in this instance but memory, too, etc...?

Thank you.

Subscribed!  This newsletter subscription feature needs to be made a lot more visible to members in my opinion. I had no idea how to subscribe until I just read the subscribe link in this post.

Are copies of new newletters emailed to new subscribers? Or are members just notified of their release? If the latter, but what means? Email, On Site notifications or both?

Thanks..

Hello -

I am trying to create a query that will give me all my Windows 7 x64 and x86 systems.

What I have is this below, however it doesn't give me the details I want. I want it to list OS, IP, Name, client active or not and whether or not it's a x64 or x86 system.


select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Workstation 6.1%" or SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Windows 7%" and SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.SystemType = "x64-based PC"

I run this for x86 and it gives me same result as the query above

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Workstation 6.1%" or SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Windows 7%" and SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.SystemType = "x86-based PC"

Thanks,

Morning techs,

I work for a large Computer Aided Dispatch software support company.  We supply the HW and SW that runs in Police and Fire Departments all over the world.  

At my Tier, the Tier one we basically gather logs and screenshots from the dispatchers computers to escalate tickets to the Engineers.  There is an error report functionality but the DISPATCHER (whom you know is extremely busy) must MANUALLY run it themselves at time of event.  

Are there any *light* tools out there that can be installed onto the dispatchers computers that would log error reports automatically?

Computers are running Win 7 with just the dispatching SW

Thank you,

I have a customer with a SBS 2003 and the server became infected with the .amnesia infection.  Unfortunately it also attacked many of the servers executable file such as Seagate Backup Exec.  I ran a thorough scan on all workstations.  I installed Microsoft Essentials and Spyhunter on a workstation.  I copied the data folder from the server to a new folder called server on the workstation.  I was told that Spyhunter 4 would detect and remove/repair the infection.  I ran a full scan and it does not seem to see the infected files that are obviously infected because they all have the extension .amnesia.  Does anyone have a recommendation for the repair and removal of this infection in the data files?

Hi

We have SQL database files on the computer Windows 7 Pro x64. We use Asigra for Cloud Backup. Asigra is using VSS backup. The backup started failing a week ago with the error message:
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." when trying to access .ldf and .mdf files.
I checked the permissions and it is fine. I tried adding exceptions to AVG antivirus but AVG could not access files either.
I used Process Explorer and the files are in use by sqlserv (64 bit) and not sqlserv*32. I checked on another computer we have similar set up and the same backup type and the files over there are not in use by any process.

How can I fix it?
Regards,
Tom

Hi,

We are looking for a self hosted 'dropbox' style software that will give us all the functionality of dropbox, but with the program and master copy of the files hosted on our server.
We currently have dropbox installed on our server and have shared the folder using windows shares for approx. 10 local computers. As the files are hosted in dropbox, we are able to give access, via dropbox, to a number of external users and organisations. This is great, as they can view files from the web portal, laptops and mobile devices - without any complex configuration.

Our issues with dropbox are:

1. It's not really designed for this sort of scenario (shared over the LAN), but we dont want to install the client on every computer, as files wont be locked when in use by other users which leads to duplicates. Additionally, if dropbox crashes on one computer, and the client doesn't notice, it will lead to a backlog of unsynced files. Multiply this by 10 computers and it can get rather messy.

2. Dropbox doesn't officially run as a system service, which means a user account must always be logged in on the server. It is also increasingly prone to crashing. We are increasing having to log into the server to restart dropbox

3. As external users and organisations increase, it’s becoming increasing difficult to track the amount of dropbox accounts and shares that we have

4. Dropbox is usually stuck syncing thousands of files to their server, and is never fully upto date with the…

We have a client that needs to integrate Sharepoint into their network. How should I bring this into their network?

They currently have a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard server (DC, DNS - Single Server) and Office 365 business plan through Microsoft.

What is the best route? And why use Sharepoint instead of something else?

Hi, Need some help and not sure where to start. I have a server 2012RS essentials I would like to have client machines listed under computers. But whenever I try to use http://server/connect I get address not available. NSlookup resolves servername.domain.local and the correct IP.

http://servername/connect resolves fine on the server itself.

Could someone help.

I'm looking for a linux server distro to run a couple of sites I plan to build. Ubuntu is my main operating system but I want to be able to work with server security.

I have a second question - is it less secure to host two sites on one server than to have a virtual machine and two virtual servers running?

Thanks

Hello - I have a user that can connect to a public folder/calendar through Outlook Web Access, however she cannot connect through Outlook 2010. This users mail is working fine on this system, but I cannot see public calendar. One thing to consider is this user's system is not part of the domain and not sure if this would be the issue.

but how can I run an LDAP query without using commands? is it even possible. all google searches just show using commands.

Hello Folks,
I have the following scenario, I have few images working fine as far as deploying and distributed to my local distribution point. However, I didn't click "Copy the content in this package share on distribution points" -see capture1
Capture1.JPG
What would It happen IF I remove the wim from the source or I turned off that system source where it was initially taken from? -See capture2
Capture2.JPG
Isn't SCCM supposed to create it's own content once I uploaded to the distribution point or is it always drawing from the source?
