All our workstations are synchroized the time with DC servers.

We need to temporarily allow a workstation to change the date. How can I do that as it seem that I can set date on another workstation.

Thx

I have a workstation with two NIC the only use of this PC is for the vm

In hyper-v there is a option to optimize/maximum bandwidth for vm to designate one NIC for the vm only by not Allowing management operating system to share this network adapter

Is this option available with VMWare

Hi,

Why is it bad to have 2 physical NICs on 1 server with 2 different IPs but on the same subnet?

ie.

nic 1: 192.168.1.1
nic 2: 192.168.1.171

This is a Hyper V server 2012 R2  so nic2 is used for the virtual switch and all the VMs are connected to it.  Nic1 is what I use to RDP into.

Why is this bad? will it cause issues or just not "best practices" ?

Thanks,

We have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Controllers, other Server 2008 Servers, a Server 2003 Server, and Windows 7 and Windows XP clients.  Can the network be setup so that computers can't access it unless the computer meets specified criteria?  For example, we don't want a computer to connect unless it has McAfee anti-virus, is managed by McAfee Orchestrator, and has a DAT file not older than a few days ago.

People,

I've got the existing Exchange Server 2013 Standard SP1 that is running as MBX&CAS role in one AD site called Default-First-Site-Name.
I want to decommission it so that I can run the both MBX & CAS on new Win2012 R2 VM so I can configure DAG on the other AD site called Head-Office1.

Existing:
AD Site Default-First-Site-Name
PRODMAIL14-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2008 R2 existing legacy.
PRODMAIL15-VM [Mailbox server only] - Windows Server 2012 R2 newly built for DAG.

AD Site Head-Office1
PRODMAIL20-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 existing newly built for DAG.

Proposed:
AD Site Default-First-Site-Name
PRODMAIL14-VM [Decommissioned]
PRODMAIL15-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 setup for DAG with Head Office.

AD Site Head-Office1
PRODMAIL20-VM [Mailbox & Client Access Server] - Windows Server 2012 R2 existing newly built for DAG with PRODMAIL15-VM.

How to do that safely without causing email flow issue during the production business hours ?
What're the steps in installing CAS so that it does not cause any email flow during the business hours on PRODMAIL15-VM ?
If I install the windows update now during the business hours on PRODMAIL15-VM is there any impact or problem when I reboot it ?

Thanks, in advance.

Hello I am working on enabling QoS policies on my VDI Desktops. I created the GPO settings below in the computer policy. I see the GPO applied successfully. When I run an RSOP report I see the workstation reporting that the policy is applied. When I run wireshark, I am looking at the DSCP values and they are 0. Am I missing something that I didn't enable? I'm looking to enable QoS on outbound SIP and PCoIP traffic but neither are being tagged with the policy settings I put in.

Honored Experts.

Im new to Microsoft Online and OneDrive Business.
I have set up an agreement for a very small company.
I have uploaded a folder called SHARED to OneDrive and shared this for all users.
However NONE of the OTHER users are actually able to see this folder in Windows Explorer OneDrive.
They have to go online and see shared folders to access it.
How do I make this shared folder visible in Windows?? :-)

How to view most utilized nodes in your network?
Michael from AdRem Software explains how to view the most utilized and worst performing nodes in your network, by accessing the Top Charts view in NetCrunch network monitor. Top Charts is a view in which you can set several performance counters (such as PING response time, memory utilization, free disk space, and etc) and have the network monitor show you the outliers in your network.

I have 2 DCs. I demoted a domain controller 2012 server, which had FMSO roles prior the seizing. I moved the FMSO to the secondary server. I used the force option to demote it as it wasn't working properly with soft demotion. The server is now in a workgroup. If I try to join the server back to the domain, it comes up with an error.  I have tried this on a seperate test server and managed to join the domain fine. I can ping the working DC fine on the demoted server and vica versa. Any ideas what I can do?

It says that the AD DC could not be contacted.

Here is the extra information it provides.
Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "mydomain.local":

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

he query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.ad.ardenttide.co.uk

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals.…

I have a strange problem I haven't seen before and it appears to be related to name resolution.  A customer has a laptop computer running Windows 7 64-bit w/SP1.  It is connected to a domain and when logged in, has access to several shares on different servers via mapped drives.  When the user is in the office on the local network, all of the shares on the mapped drives are accessible.  However, when the user takes the laptop home, connects to his local Internet and attaches to the corporate network via SonicWALL NetExtender, he has only intermittent access to the main server's shares (server1).  When you click on one of the mapped drives, it basically says it can't find the drive or it is inaccessible.  Other mapped drives to shares on different servers (server2 and server3) are still accessible and never lose connection.

I initially thought it was a DNS issue.  I checked the NetExtender connection info and it was set to the corporate DNS server.  I pinged the server by IP address and by name and had all good replies.  I ran NSLookup and it identified the correct DNS server, as well as the server on which the shares are located that he can't access.  No odd settings in the host file, plus I cleared arp table entries, etc., etc. - anything I could think of.  Still, the same result.  I finally went into a browser and accessed one of the server shares by IP address (10.1.1.100) instead of name and I was able to get to it with no issue.   Same for the rest of the shares.  I …

I have a characteristic in my domain that has never caused an issue, but is now troubling a group installing a new software program in my environment.  We have a domain with two 2008 R2 AD machines.  I always join all the computers and servers to the domain, and require users to use an AD login.  The issue - when I login on any computer with domain\username, it "looks like" WORKGROUP\username.  In fact, I can use either to login.  When I write code in VB.NET and get the identity a users, it always says WORKGROUP\username not domain\username.  My software company is saying that my users are not really authenticated users, and that is why we are having some issues accessing certain resources.  Not sure if I really have a problem, or where to begin to look/

Hello -

I’m trying to free up IPs in my 1st subnet (there’s 2) and I’m down to 1 free address, according to the statistics on the scope.  Weird thing is that when I successfully moved 4 static IP printer addresses over to the other subnet, and deleted their reservations, the statistics do not increase by 4 addresses – it still shows only 1 available address.  I double-checked the active leases and do not see my 4 printer addresses leased – statically nor dynamically.  I restarted the DHCP server service thinking maybe the server just hasn’t recognized the open addresses yet – didn’t help.  Wondering why it's not releasing the addresses back into the pool.

Thanks for your help

I have been trying to re establish a lost scanning connection with my Ricoh Aficio 2022 with my computer workstation.   No matter, SMB just failed for no reason.    I gave up.  it was working for years then just suddenly failed

So I installed filezilla.   Still does not work but i think I just do not have the correct syntax.

Filezilla server invoked for my computer.  192.168.1.xxx
The Ricoh then set up as follows

FTP
Port 21
Server 192.168.1.xxx (my workstation)  or \\servername    (tried both)
Path:    \folder    or  \sharename\folder
user:    username
password   password

None of this works.

I am missing one syntax call.  What is it?

The FTP connections work just fine on the LAN.       This is all LAN based.  I am not making any external WAN calls (yet)

Ports 21 and 22 forwarded to my 192.168.1.xxx computer

thank you

last year a windows server 2012 Essential was installed  and manually workstations disjoin the old domain and join windows server 2012 Domain in a small office environment, I could not use the server connector wizard at that time so I manually joint the new domain.
Now I have to use  server connector http:\\fs1\connector to be able to manage these windows 7 from dashboard and run backup. However when I run it, I get to the "Type User Name and Password) as in attached fig. and keyboard type name as you see in the picture. I do not want to dis join from the domain. All I want is to be able to backup from the server (Using Azure Backup)

Thank you
