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.

we have a windows 2008 domain controller that is also the CA server for the domain.  if we demote the server, is it going to affect the CA functionality?

I am working on our MS domain Disaster Recovery plan, and want to ensure our MS server 2012 CA causes minimal initial issues when it's not available if DR scenario occurs. Working off of a week recovery time for our primary datacenter to come back up (may be optimistic, but i want to at least give myself time to worry about more important business impacting items for the first few days), i see my CRL for my main domain cert from our CA currently has a validity time of 24hrs. I want to increase that to 1 week to give us time to worry about other issues instead of the internal CA server at first.

i see this URL with PS commands and want to extend the URL from 24hrs to 7 days so it will be almost a week before servers/apps start complaining about not having the CA available.

https://www.sysadmins.lv/projects/pspki/Set-CRLValidityPeriod.aspx

is this the right way to do it? am i wrong in this thought? if this line of thinking is correct, what would the command be if the CRL cert name was DomainCertificate?

The client needs AntiVirus protection for Windows Server Standard FE  2007 - Service Pack 2
They also have Server 2000 (Which has old software on it, and can't be upgraded right away)

I prefer using TrendMicro.  Is there another I can use?

I will upgrade to a newer version of Windows eventually.

Thanks.

Hello!
I have a user who uses a Macbook Air that is on MacOS Mojave 10.14.3. He has an issue where he connects to the network drives on our file server and after some time encounters this exact issue:

http://www.thursby.com/why-does-it-say-connection-failed-when-i-click-server-sidebar

I wanted to ask if anyone has any new information on it since his OS version is definitely a few steps up from what are described as the problematic versions? Or if anyone has found a cause for it that can be mitigated? The only third party softwares he has are Office 2016 for Mac, Webex client with Outlook add-in, and SEP 14. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Just wondering we use High Sierra and the Server app - however if you upgrade to MAC OS Mojave then the websites feature of server app has bee removed/ depreciated. We use this for pushing out a proxy pac file to our clients. Just wondering how people are getting around this? Also has anyone had any experience of upgrading clients to Mojave but retaining the MAC server on High Sierra?

We have a network of around 35 PCs.  The vast majority of them (30) are Windows 7.  We also have an SBS 2011 server.
The company have a plan to upgrade the server next year.  
In the meantime, the Windows 10 PCs joined to the domain aren't updating, which I know is an issue with SBS 2011.  All the Windows 7 PCs are receiving their updates with no problem at all.  I would like to start upgrading all the PCs to Windows 10 in the meantime too.
What's the best strategy for this please?  
From digging a little deeper, I've seen options about how to cater for Windows 10 updates from WSUS with some hacks, but the information is a couple of years old and not quite sure how effective it is, particularly as the Windows 10 releases keep changing (1709,1803 etc. etc.)  I can also "exclude" the Windows 10 machines from WSUS, but I'd like to make sure that if this is done, that they are receiving valid updates from somewhere reliable.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks

After 30+ hours of research and trying different solutions I have found many solutions to each piece of this puzzle but can't quite get them to work together or figure out the best approach so I'm hoping you guys can help.

The goal: Use public IP from a remote server(Ubuntu) as a browser proxy. The kicker is that the server should pass all traffic through to a local machine which has a 4g modem internet connection to use its internet connection. We need to be able to assign fixed IP addresses/IP port combinations to these local modem/s to be used as undetectable browser proxies to make it appear that the browser client is logged in using the mobile internet connection.

I have seen multiple solutions to each part of this including the use of ssh tunnels, dynamic port forwarding/socks, remote port forwarding, squid proxy server/other proxy server software, iptables configs etc..

I have found this solution that I can get traffic to travel from anywhere to my local machine:

//1st terminal establishes connection/tunnel ssh -nN -R 8888:localhost:8889 -i "connection.pem" ubuntu@e-xx-xx-xx-xx.remote-server.com

//2nd terminal listens on port 8889 netcat -l -p 8889 //this command works and prints abc on the local machine echo "abc" | nc -v xx.xx.xx.xx(remote server ip) 8888

I have also successfully installed a squid proxy server in a docker container and used the following command to open socks connection with reverse forwarded port.

//Socks/Dynamic forwarding with…

Please have a look at the image attached:

here is how my flow is
 1. Database server
 2. Application server and application server can establish connection with database server) (here the crystal report will run fine)
 3. Local system (and client will establish connection with the application server) (here the report is not working)
Image01as i'm not able to connect to database server directly, how i will open crystal report from client system.
for now i'm getting error "access to server is denied"

I want to find a way to get sound on my VPS at Vultr VPS I found a VSC aka Virtual Sound Card It was a little tricky to get working for some reason it would not install? It just did nothing after double clicking the EXE! I came up with the idea to convert it to MSI. I used emco Software MSI Package Builder and it installed the EXE for me. I figured I would install the MSI but emco installed it for me! So now I have a VSC now I want to connect it to my C-Media PCI Sound Card in my home desktop. I am going to use The NAS Project aka The Network Audio System and Port-Endpoint the C-Media PCI Sound Card and VSC together with VAC from Eugene Muzychenko Software aka Virtual Audio Cables. Then my VPS will have sound coming from my home computer speakers but they will be playing what the VPS is hearing while I am on the console. Is there anybody who can step me through this procedure I am not really talented at networks and there is a lot of protocol that I dont know. Plus really nobody does this kind of thing.

I recently got an older server. 6gb RAM, 1x2tb RAID array. 4 core CPU. Literally an old file server.

I upgraded their server and took this one.

It originally came with Server 2008, but I was unable to recover the key (they wiped the drives and it didn't have a sticker on it.

I was wondering of a linux OS with a web-based GUI. I have used Webmin in the past, and I like it, but it doesn't seem to be updated very often.

I want to know if there are any similar to you Webmin that you like to use. I don't really want to hang out in my office staring at a screen and I ain't great with terminal commands (through SSH). I like the module options like in Webmin. I have also tried Cockpit project, but it doesn't have much on it. And ClearOS is not that easy to use when setting up samba share. Amahi, I have the same issues.

What are your recommendations??

okay also the operating system of the rescue disk is Debian and that of Linux server is CentOS 5..I am very new to this so please forgive my
haphazard formulation of the problem.We were supposed to check and then recover the datasystem of a supposedly corrupted linux
server using the fsck command. Now here the problem comes we first ran the fsck commands and the answer was that those commands cannot
be run as the disks were in use. So we started unmounting the disks one by one till there was none left and then we again ran
fsck commands this time..But the command failed to do anything. Various attempts to remount the different drives also failed.
So our questions are three fold

1) How do we get all the drives back in original configuration
2) How do we properly run fsck commands to check and rebuild the corrupted drives
3) if the system logged out of rescue mode and is restarted in normal mode at this moment will we lose all the data that is stored in that server




first time running fsck, df, fdisk commands

rescue:~# fsck -A
fsck from util-linux 2.25.2

Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 in Miami
 Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 in Miami

The Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 will be held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort on October 13–16, 2019, and it promises to be the must-attend event for IT infrastructure managers, CIOs, service providers, value-added resellers, ISVs, and developers.

I have an old version of Business Objects Crystal Report Server Software that we are trying to reinstate for Project Management.  My owners don't want to spend the money for the latest/greatest in similar software.

I have everything running except for the CMC.  As soon as I start it, it falls on its' face and goes right back to a stopped state.  When I go to check the connection for the CMC I get the following pop up:  CMC Generated Error
The event logs list the following, similar, error:  Eventvwr Error
The environment is a virtual Windows Server 2012 R2 with a SQL Server 2016.

I have deleted and added the DSN numerous times with different drivers to no avail. (In the 32 Bit ODBC)

It should be noted that when I set up the DSN, and the connection in the CMC, it successfully connects to the database.  The error only happens when I go back to the connections tab in the CMC.  

The only possible issue I thought about was that this is a 64 bit virtual and the software is 32.  However, I have never had an issue with this in the past on physical servers. (64 vs the CS 32 software)

Is there a way to see what the CMC is submitting for the connection string?

Recently, our W2012R2 RDS server has started giving users problems logging in. The message is:
The number of connections to this computer is limited and all connections are in use right now. Try connecting later or contact your system administrator.

I'm having a hard time finding any helpful information on how to resolve this issue other than on desktop versions of Windows.

In a bid to get around this issue, I've opened more ports (HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp 339x), and this has given some temporary reprieve.

It seems to me that the issue is pervasive. By that I mean that the message does not disappear even if existing users log off from their RDS sessions.

This RDS server has been working fine for years, and now, suddenly, this happens.

SCO Unix 5.05 Network Issue

So let me start by saying Im not familiar with Uniex. I had to reset the router here at my work yesterday and redo the network. This in turn lost the ip address settings in the router and now our Unix server is not connecting with the router or sending emails in visifax. I tried changing the static ip that was set up from 192.168.1.254 to 192.168.1.144 as the new router issues 192.168.1.100 through 192.168.1.149 ip address. I used netconfig for this and it took the change but to no avail. Now im dead in the water. I dont know what to check or what to change to allow for it to make a proper connection to our router. The pc's here can connect to the server through the serial direct connections and also access the router fine through the network. Any help or advice would be APPRECIATED!!!
