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,
David

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,

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 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'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,

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?

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.

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?

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.
