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.

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.

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?

Hi all,

I need to update the installed version of HP Intelligent Provisioning on a HP Proliant DL380 G9 Server. I can easily download the Intelligent Provisioning CD from HP's website, but I'm not sure how I can update the version installed on the actual server?

Can someone point me in the right direction?


Thanks,
Max.

Feel free to try connecting yourself, it's just a test server atm.

I have an old Dell Poweredge 1800 that has been completely wiped. I have tried loading Ubuntu Server and a trial of Windows Server 2008 but couldn't get them to work, so I put in a Windows 7 disc that I had and was able to load up. I'm able to get to the Windows 7 installation interface where it says "Where do you want to install Windows" and it shows none of the 4 SCSI drives that I have (in raid 5). So I click "Load Driver" and it says I need to put the drives onto a USB and then try again. I navigate to the Dell website and it gives me a whole list of drivers for my server for my OS and I put them on my USB. I put the USB in and it reads none of the drivers that are on the USB as compatible. I have no idea where to go from here. Also my BIOS version is A06. Please help me, and thank you.

Just throwing this out there to get some feedback.   We are currently running Acronis Backup Advanced 11.7

We have an on premise "backup server" with 16 TB of storage.   We have an off site DROBO with an additional 16 TB.  

Acronis seems overly complicated and difficult to configure properly and there are all kinds of glitches and issues with it.   We recently had a server fail and I had to perform essentially a bare metal restore.   The process was painful.  The data was in Acronis, it had been backed up but getting it out of Acronis proprietary format and back into something usable took more time than management liked.  Also my experience with Acronis support has not been good.     We've heard some feedback that Acronis is not a good solution and that there are better solutions out there.  

So any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

We have 8 physical servers and a vmware host with 5 guest servers

Critical are our Domain Controller, SQL server, Exchange, Quickbooks,

Total data is about 8 TB

As the system admin I want something that isn't terrible to configure, is reliable and that I can trust in case disaster strikes.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Hello All;

I am hunting for a Streaming Media Server (software), that will allow me to do the following.

#1: Using a web-based page, to start and stop the stream.
#2: Add songs to the stream and remove songs from the stream through the web page

Shoutcast, Windows Media Services (now the new (smooth streaming in newer servers)), Icecast (I have installed, but cannot seem to get it working).

I found this for playing the stream through my website.
http://jplayer.org/latest/demo-08/
So, that would work for playing the LIVE stream.
Now, just need to find a media server.

With WMS (Window Media Services) (2008 and below of Windows Servers)
I can create a Playlist with asp classic or net, and have it run through a database, LOOP and create a playlist.
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd564552(v=vs.85).aspx
However. What if I remove a song, or add a song.
Will the playlist update itself with the LIVE Stream? Or will the station have to be stopped and started up again?
That might have to be. I might have to play a commercial or some kind of a jingle or a station break whenever the update needs to take place.
(Just letting my mind wonder while writing this up.)

My dream is to run a radio station of sorts, from my home.
To add and remove songs from the stream through a web page, no matter where I am at.

Once I can get something like this up and running, I can then modify it in the future.
I would just like to get a station up and …

When using File Screening in Windows 2012 R2, if users have existing exe or jpg in folders that are part of the file screening policy, what happens to those files? Are they in violation or is it only for future exe or jpg files written to the folders?
