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.

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…

I plan to move somewhere where Google FIber is offered and host a website using a server I bought.

I'm reading three books on Ubuntu Server, and I'm assuming I should buy a business firewall.

Can someone explain how they work compared to software firewall, if you should run both, and link to some possible products that would be good for a web server.

Thanks.

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 all,

Microsoft tells me to use this command:
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://<FQDN of Exchange 2010 server>/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos

It says so in this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd297932(v=exchg.141).aspx

I get this error:

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. I appreciate your help!


I am running Exchange 2013, User has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010.

Thanks,

Hello,

I want to run an LDAP query on AD server to retrieve and export a list of users who are part of a security group.

I know that when I go to find in AD I can change the find criteria to Custom Search. in here I can enter an LDAP query and I know this can also be done via powershell/CMD

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?

Hello All,
I need some advice, and Expert opinion.
We need to move Exchange 2013 to new hardware server.
Existing instance:
We have a hardware server (Dell PowerEdge 2950) with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard and Standalone Exchange 2013 CU14 Build Number: 15.0.1236.3 Server Role: MultiRole.
The server is in a domain that is part of a forest of 30 domains, this domain is not the forest root domain but this exchange server in main for all domains in forest. Let's call it contoso.com Server name mail.contoso.com
New instance:
Hardware server (Dell PowerEdge R720) with installed Windows Server 2012 R2. Server name new-mail.contoso.com
My question is which transfer scenario will be the best and less complex?
I thought to deploy a new clean exchange installation and then move all mailboxes to a new server. But I have no experience installing two exchange servers in the same (domain) environment. How can the installation of the second server affect the whole infrastructure?
Or maybe there are more correct transfer scenarios?
Thanks to everyone who can advise and help.

I have a VM that is running a very old be stable SBS 2003 server OS. I had a power failure last Saturday at the office and it seems now or any time after a log into the VM SBS 2003 server I get a notice saying that I need to activate windows. I saw an article online saying that it could possibly being caused by a script interface with windows activation running on the VM. however to remove the script manually it is telling me that I need to have the SBS 2003 CD.

I do not have that CD anymore.

Any suggestions

Instead of using Google's Gmail or Yahoo Mail etc.. I would like to setup my own private email server using Outlook Exchange 2016. I have a spare PC around. What would be the best way of using that spare PC and hard drive as my email server? Would I need to install Microsoft Server OS and Microsoft Exchange 2016 together on that 1 machine? I would be the admin. I would like all the e-mails on 1 hard drive only. How can I achieve this successfully?

I have a domain a purchased through GoDaddy. I then am using HawkHost to send and receive emails. I changed the MX records accordingly.

For some reason, I can send messages but I can't receive them? Any idea what would cause this? Is there anything other than the MX records I should be changing on GoDaddy?

Also kinda strange... if I do the Outlook "Test Email" the message ends up coming through. That is the only message that makes it into the inbox.
