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

I am looking for advice on the following:

I have an issue within my Citrix VDI environment, that when VDI Desktops not in use are powered off for a pre-longed period of time, they automatically get placed into Maintenance mode. According to a Citrix article there is a DWORD to amend to be able do disable this behviour, which involves changing to a NEGATIVE value. I can't see how this is done as my undserstanding was a DWORD can only accept a 0 upwards:

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

DesktopServer\MaxFailedRegistrationsAllowed

DWORD

2

Controls automatic placement of power-managed VMs into maintenance mode following repeated failures to register with a DDC.

If a VM is started-up by the broker service but fails to register after the period defined by the MaxRegistrationDelayMin setting (default 20 minutes), it is shutdown again.

The MaxFailedRegistrationsAllowed value defines the maximum number of times that this start-up, registration failure, shut down cycle is allowed to repeat before a subsequent registration failure causes the VM to be automatically placed into maintenance mode.

 

The default value of 2 means that if the VM fails to register 3 times in succession, it will be automatically placed into maintenance mode.

Setting MaxFailedRegistrationsAllowed to a negative value (0xFFFFFFFF) disables this behavior and prevents VMs from ever being automatically placed into maintenance mode.

I have been to many KB articles about CA root cert validation period and still have doubt about it and want to clear it. I am about to work on a root CA to increase the validity period as well to increases the issued certificate period.
We have a CA root server and this  server is issuing (no subordinate server in place) the certificate with five years . We now want to renew the CA 's root cert as well as the issued certs period to another 5 years.
My understanding from the EE, nothing I can do with issued certificates and they will expire what ever I do with root server. In this case , I first have to change the validity period in CApolicy.inf file and renew the certificate of CA root server to 10 years, hence this will increase the validation of CA's root certificate as desired (10 years or more).
But the old issued certificates to the clients are chained to old issued template, in this case, the old issued certificates will be expired soon even after changing the value of CAplicy.inf file .
To remediate the issue, the next step is that I have to create new issuing template and issue the certificates to client by GPO.
I have to issue the listed below commands to the server In order for me to set  the  AD's templates period to 5 years as we want otherwise the AD's templates will be staying with old's validation period?
certutil -setreg CA\ValidityPeriodUnits 10
certutil -setreg CA\ValidityPeriod Years
net stop certsvc && net start certsvc

In conclusion, I have to…

I have Dedicated server on Hetzner. Server is located in Germany.

Server has 256GB RAM 6 CPUs (12 Threads)... In coclusion, it is quite good one. I have CENTOS 7.5. EA4.

Problem is with SSL. Every day for about 2 hours we have 40 requests in one second and at that moment finishing requests takes about 20 seconds sometimes.

While Non SSL takes 0.5 and lower mostly.

There is some exapmle page

http://viber.ge/index.php


After few second you will see responce time and it varies a lot.

From 13:00 to 15:30 (UTC+4) SSL requests take the msot time.

Even if u open this link with SSL and without u might see the difference.

I have WHM available and I've noticed ModSecurity and wonder if it might be the problem.

I have already applied most of the setting provided here but they are not much about SSL.

Could anyone point out where should I look to resolve this issue?

Hi

I support a client who has a 5 Year old Dell PowerEdge R520 Server 2008 r2 on which we've recently been seeing some BSOD's, one this month one last month and the one back in Oct. Dumpcheck says it could be caused by memory corruption but I'm no expert at analysing such files, see below. I know it says a possible problem with the disk subsystem but can anyone suggest a more detailed explanation, i.e. does this look like a hardware issue of some sort?

Thanks

Problems with the Etsy Platform, recently...

I have a friend who was doing well for years on Etsy, selling crafts and keeping busy, with a work backlog that was quite dependable. But then it shut off, like a light-switch.

And others I know who depend on Etsy also seem to have the volume of business shot off.

Is this a known problem?

Was there, perhaps, a software change that caused a problem that can be rectified?

Please give me as much information as you have to help me see if there is anything that can be done.


Thanks!

Hi,
The current VM server is started and it does go into Recovery mode. Since it is being started by console, is there a way to put also "F8" into the console command, to ensure that "F8" would be executed, when starting the VM server?

I’m trying to figure out how to manage our networked APC UPS devices.  They are running the original network card.  For some reason the smtp won’t work with our smtp relay.
I tried downloading the business edition of power chute but that just try’s to install an agent on windows and the agent doesn’t have any network options, only local.

Hi, My site, techgardens dot com, has been slow and slower and often down since we moved to Bluehost. I just checked with them again, and the tech told me the error log showed it was my theme. While I'm sure my theme (Divi) is a factor, I looked at the error logs, attached, and our IP does not show up. 189.252.72.56 is not in there.

Maybe someone could help me decipher these logs and find out the real issue?

Hi Experts,
Last year we did DC FSMO on an existing Domain controller onto a new server.
However, it would seem that when trying to run windows updates, its still looking towards the old server.
Please see picture, can you advise how we can fix this.
Thanks

Hello we have a server with godaddy with Windows 2012 R2 and we configure the IIs 6 virtual smpt server  like:

In tab general (All unasigned)
In Access tab/Authentication anonymous
In access tab/Connection all except the list below and all is empty
In access tab/relay only the list below and the ”dedrelay.secureserver.net” and the IP of the server.
tab delivery/outbound connection just anonymous and checked TLS.
tab delivery/advanced we tested in FQDN the IP of the server above mentioned and also in a second test with the default full computer name. Then in both cases smart host we have “dedrelay.secureserver.net” and we have checked “Attempt direct delivery...”.

we have another server that is. it on godaddy and is Windows  2008 r2 we use an lms complex there and that email uses cdosys to send emails. We want to use or call in the server with Windows 2008 r2 the Windows 2012 r2 smpt. In other words we want to use the configuration above in smpt in the Windows 2012 r2 to use in the  Windows 2008 r2. How can we configure the Windows 2008 r2 smpt or anywhere to use the Windows 2012 r2 like the server to send emails?

Note: Both server are on different networks, in other words from two different companies, they don’t share anything in common.

We hope someone can help.

Thank you

Cloud Class® Course: Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

Hello I was working good and suddenly my windows server stopped sending emails via cdosys.asp and I found was list in CBL. They say: This IP address was detected and listed 85 times in the past 28 days, and 14 times in the past 24 hours. The most recent detection was at Thu Apr 5 15:05:00 2018 UTC +/- 5 minutes

The listing of this IP is because it HELOs as a bare IP address (A bare ip address looks like: "54.33.33.5"). It is not HELO'ing as itself ("xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx").

I have windows 2008 and almost we don’t send email just the normal reports of a LMS.

How can I fix the problem I just use my regular IP like years but suddenly stopped working.

Thank you

Has anyone made HTTP 2 HTTPS redirection work in IIS on Server 2016?

I have a simple published app in the /RDWEB folder that I'm publishing out to users.  I have the HTTP redirect working in that the users only need to type in the URL and it redirects to /rdweb, but I'd like anyone who enters HTTP to be redirected to the HTTPS site and I'm not having any luck.

I've used HTTP redirect and put in my https://url.com and that's not working (I even checked Only redirect requests to content in this directory, not subs).  No Joy.

I downloaded and installed the URL rewrite tool and made a rule to listen for http://myurl.com and redirect to https://myurl.com and still no joy.

I've read several web sites with various fixes, but none are working for me.  

Has anyone been successful in redirecting HTTP to HTTPS in Server 2016?

Thanks

Hi
For my Python RTS / MOBA server,

I am at a decision where I should either make a class for reading UDP activity updates from the clients over TCP activity ( a failsafe)
Should I have a UDPlistener class and a TCPlistener class?
or should I have a packetListener class with a UDPlisten method and  also, a TCPlisten method? - that are each made into Threads?
I think an all-in-one approach would make linking into the game smoother?

both would work, but which would look best? Is Python better suited to one?

Thanks

Hello.

Does anyone know if there is a website that has a list of all known Windows applications that require a restart when installed or uninstalled?  Or if there is some alternative means of finding this out?  Command etc?

My goal is to be able to know in advance if installing or uninstalling a program will cause a production server to require a restart.

Thanks for any tips or info.
