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.

Good morning All

I have a developer who wants to run a powershell script to check IIS web server configurations and changes including registry, and also use the script to configure new IIS web servers so that they will all be identical.  Is running a PS script a good way to do this or is he re-inventing the wheel?  Is there a product that will do this is a more secure / controlled fashion?

Many thanks

Eric

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,

nimdatx.

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.

Hi, I have successfully exported all pst files from an Exchange 2010 Server using the command : foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox)) { New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $i -FilePath "\\AZUA\Exports\$($i.Alias).pst" }

I am now trying to Import them in to 2016 using the following command but receive the following error :

Dir \\SERVER01\PSTshareRO\Recovered\*.pst | %{ New-MailboxImportRequest -Name RecoveredPST -BatchName Recovered -Mailbox $_.BaseName -FilePath $_.FullName -TargetRootFolder SubFolderInPrimary}

Error :
Unable to open PST file '\\myserver\usershares\username.pst'. Error details: Header file length is zero. If this
file is from a previously failed pst export, please delete the file and resume the export.

Is is possible to import 2010 to 2016 ?

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 would like to get some idea about Wild card certificates which we just procured recently. This is the first time I have been involved with this. We have 1 PC and a Server which host multiple web-pages for ourselves and some of our associated companies. Basically both the PC and Server are running Tomcat server for hosting the web-pages. I need a good understanding on how this can be implemented when we have multiple web-pages hosted on the same Server? Both the PC and Server are hosted in windows environment.

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.

I was given the task of holding all files(mainly Word, Excel and PDf's)  that 2 sites will use in my location and then the users will map a drive to have access. Permissions will also be an issue not all users can see every folder.
Also we need to think about encryption ( don't need files on server to be encrypted) just the transfer of the files.

We will also need to backup to their location for disster recovery.

We do not want to put files in the cloud.....

Looking for advice, experiences that could help us decide which is the right route to take.
Thanks in advance

This has been happening for roughly 10-15 minutes every few days. No real set time that it occurs.
The internet from the ISP is 300Mbps but during those 15 minutes it will throttle down to ~50Mbps.
This happens for computers both physically connected and wifi devices.
My first thought was maybe the DHCP pool ran out of IPs but I'm seeing there are ~50 spare IPs at any given time. Don't see anything wrong in the DHCP logs.
Now I have started running Wireshark on the DHCP server hoping to find anything that looks out of the ordinary but the issue has not reoccurred after I started logging. What should I look out for?

I had this question after viewing Issues with Exchange 2016/2010 Coexistence.

We are having issues getting our 2010 and 2016 exchange OWA site to work.  The question above is the original question.  Here is some info.

HTTP Proxy Log

Browser Image
 
VirDir Report

We have verified that the authentication is correct on the servers.  When we check the proxy logs it states that it's HttpProxyException=Microsoft.Exchange.HttpProxy.HttpProxyException: Unable to find proper back end service for Sid~S-1-5-21-527237240-261478967-725345543-4688 in site CN Default-First-Site-Name CN Sites CN Configuration DC DOMAIN DC local. ---> Microsoft.Exchange.HttpProxy.NoAvailableDownLevelBackEndException: Unable to find proper back end service for Sid~S-1-5-21-527237240-261478967-725345543-4688 in site CN Default-First-Site-Name CN Sites CN Configuration DC DOMAIN DC local.

We have the 2016 running our sync for devices and everything else seems to work fine.  Just OWA that won't work.  We've spent 4 days working on this issue and we believe it's time to get some more help on it.  Anything you can suggest would be appreciated.

Hi Experts, we have a client with an old network system. There are 15 users in Sussex and 3 users in site London.
At the sussex main site there is 1 x sbs 2003 that runs active diretory, dns , dhcp, exchange (pop collector) and files. Also they have on this server sage payroll.

They also have 1 x windows 7 machine that runs sage adm (multiple different versions) and Iris.
Ix windows 7 machine also servers as a windows RDP server for the London office , 3 users.
They log into access files and the apps.

They are considering going to Office 365 and want to explore how they can have a better , secure system.
We are looking at proposing Server 2012 DC , and an Apps server for Sage, Iris and a documents storage program they use.
We are considering a VM server to run this , just wondered if we could get some feedback and some advice on best approach for this.

How can I figure out how many CALs are installed on my Lync Server 2010? I can run the get-csuser command and get a count of active licenses, but I can't figure out how many are installed, so I know how many open seats I have.

Every time I search for anything regarding licensing, its around how it works, not how to tell how many copies I have installed, or how to install new licenses.

Hello,

I have an outdated php/mysql script that isn't working, due to a server software upgrade.

Here are some lines from the error log:

[03-Apr-2017 04:05:16 UTC] PHP Deprecated:  mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /home/intelli1/public_html/metrics1/start.php on line 18
[03-Apr-2017 04:05:16 UTC] PHP Deprecated:  Function mysql_numrows() is deprecated in /home/intelli1/public_html/metrics1/library.php on line 135

This is line 18
$connection=mysql_connect($sqlserver,$db_login,$db_pass) or die('Could not connect to the database server');



and this is line 135
for($i=0;$i<mysql_numrows($result);$i++){


I am not a programmer, please give me instructions on what changes need to be made to those lines.

If the changes don't work, what further information would be needed?

Thanks!

Hi
 I have tried to access the SCCM 2012 online lab via Microsoft Academy but it is no longer available. I would like assistance finding any SCCM 2012 labs online if there are any available. I am preparing for the SCCM 2012 exam.

I have a Server 2012 R2 Active Directory server that always takes a long time (around 20 to 80 minutes" whenever it is rebooted or is booting up after being shut down.

During this time it says "Please wait" before displaying the message to press CTRL-ALT-DEL to logon.

Currently there are no group policies being used on this server

What can be done to fix this issue so that this Server 2012 R2 server won't take so long before it allows us to logon to the server?
