Hi
I need to set up a trunk on two HP Procurve switches, not sure yet on model but I have been testing on a couple of 2920-24G J9727A

I have set up Trunk Trk1 across ports 1 and 2, and then tagged Trk1 for both my vlans, i have then repeated this on the second switch. As i havent set up trunks before, i did this via the GUI (switch firmware 16.09.0003)

Everything seems to be working ok, spanning tree is enabled and both ports are still active.

Am i done?, looking on the manual, there are two methods, Trunk group operation using LACP and Trunk group operation using the "trunk" option.

Current switches already have VLAN1 being used for data, vlan50 for voice and vlan3 for management.

If i need to change it to LACP, can the use of vlans stay the same or does vlan1 need to go?

show trunk  displays ports 1 and 2 in Trunk Trk1
show trunk trk1   returns  module not present for port or invalid port : trk1  
Not sure if that means something is wrong?

regards

I have a network with the range 10.4.240.x to 10.4.243.x. I should be able to reach / ping any device on the network from any address. For the most part, I can. The servers /printers and other resources are all on the 10.4.240.x subnet. From any other subnet I can ping the servers and printers and access them fine. What I can't ping or access is the routers gateway on 10.4.240.125. It does not respond to a ping request and isn't accessible. Any computer on anything other than 10.4.240.x does not have internet access because the device can not see the gateway. I have no idea why this one ip address isn't responding.

I'd appreciate any ideas to try to resolve this problem.

Regards,

Bill

Good morning-

I'm running into an issue I've never seen before and am seeking some assistance.

Background:
Windows Server 2012 R2 AD domain with 30 users and 2 domain controllers: dc1 and dc2

File server /w 2 file shares: R and T drive

After a Windows Update users are no longer able to access these file shares. They are receiving the following error:
"the target account name is incorrect"

Sometimes you can access the share drive but it will time out and go back to the error mentioned above.

However, users can browse to the file share via explorer just fine using the UNC: \\dc1\share. Computers can also ping both dc's by DNS just fine as well. I have rebooted both dc's along with the file server in question. Additionally I have disjoined and rejoined the file server from the domain no avail.

Can someone please point me in the right direction as to how to proceed?  Thank you!

Picking your brain about password policy.

I was checking a few password management best practices and some of them discourage the "forcing users to change the password" policy, they advise that users change their passwords if they suspect it's been compromised. I still believe that forcing users to change their password coupled with other password policies can really make a password more secure. I was wondering if anyone out there  gave up on forcing users to change the password and what was the reason for that..

Thanks as always...

I think this is a simple question for folks with more experience than I, with shared workstation files in a domain:
I'm trying to suitably limit access to files on workstations while still providing for file shares on them.
The "current user" logged onto the machine should have Modify, Read & execute, List folder contents, Read and Write
A single domain group needs have Read & Execute, List folder contents and Read but doesn't need Modify nor Write.

How would you set this up so that wider access is blocked BUT not limiting normal / accepted administrative maintenance, etc.
(Yes, I know that even doing this is a bit unusual - so please humor me).

Do I have this much right?:
In a peer-to-peer network, shares with Everyone permissions (Guest inactive) are fairly well limited to local users with accounts on that workstation.
If nothing is changed, except to join a domain, shares with Everyone permissions (Guest inactive) let in all of the Authenticated Users on the network.
??
So, something needs to be done with those Everyone permissions - at least!

Hi, I'm using the Quarantine feature from Watchguard and this creates a Quarantine website users can log onto. But the problem is that it's an intranet server and as such doesn't have an 'official' SSL certificate. I tried to create a self-signed one etc but I keep on failing ... could someone please give me step-by-step instructions on how to create a self-signed certificate and attach it to that website so that the browsers won't throw their security warnings anymore? Thanks!

We have a Windows domain with a 2003 Server domain controller with Windows 10 Enterprise computers.  I plan on taking a computer off the domain and connecting as a test to Azure Active Directory.  My goal is to retire the local domain server and have all our computers completely on Azure Active Directory.  The one problem is there is a QuickBooks file that is shared on the local domain controller for the accounting department.   If I am connected to the Azure directory, can I still connect to the domain controller to share this one resource using the Windows 10 machine?

We've got an issue, an IIS web application can't access a file on a shared drive.
The app pool credentials are the same as the desktop user credentials we are logged in to the server's console. The account is a domain user account and also an administrator on this web server (it's an intranet server). The anonymous authentication is set to "application pool credentials".
From the windows UI the shared path is fully accessible both via an UNC path and mapped drive, but running from the web app we are getting an "LOGON FAILURE"  in the Process Monitor log.
I tried to create a virtual directory pointing to that shared drive, but IIS can't access the web.config neither, displaying a 500.19 server error with a error code 0x8007052E

I don't understand, what could prevent a domain account to access a shared folder on another machine in the same domain just because it is being running from an IIS process?

My Windows 10 computer can't access shared folders on older versions of Windows.

For example, I can connect without problem to a file share on Windows Server 2008 R2, but I can't connect to a file share on an old server that is running Windows Server 2003.

I've accidentally deleted my domain user account and I want to recover it.  I read there's a way to do it using LDP, which I will try.  My question I have it I first recreated my account using the same username, so do I need to delete this new account, before bringing back the old account?  Or will it rename it and "move it out of the way", so to speak?  Has anyone used LDP to restore a domain account before?  any pitfalls?

Thanks,
Damian

what kind of activities on a windows server would actually require local administrator privileges, or as a server engineer yourselves, what day to day tasks do you perform on windows servers that do require you to be a member of the local admins group. We have got to go through the local admins groups on a number of critical servers and the numbers seem on the high side, but I want to be equipped with some examples of when you do need local admin rights to query if these users would ever need to perform such a task as part of their duties? If I could get something like the most common 5 admin type duties that are performed on windows servers that do require local admin rights that would be a start I suppose. I suspect in many cases those with administrator group privileges on some of the servers have no real requirement to have it. In case its of interest the vast majority of these servers run Windows server 2012.

Windows Server (2019) network connection loses identification every few days.  The Network location/lists services need to be restarted to get the local domain identified again.  This is happening on the DC/DNS server as well as one of the DB servers.  Searching I'm not finding anything to identify what is likely a config issue.  Any tips?

Windows 10 Pro: a Lenovo PC drops the Ethernet network connection at almost exactly two-minute intervals for about 12 seconds (three or four pings).  I'm working remotely on this PC so I'm limited in what I can do without going on-site.  Watching Device Manager it seems like the Intel 82579LM adapter drops off the list of installed devices and is re-added during these two-minute intervals  If I leave the list of network adapters collapsed, Device Manager shows that list re-expanded after RDP reconnect.

Nothing shows up in event logs in terms of corresponding events happening every two minutes.  Installing a new driver update from Lenovo didn't help.  Already disabled power management on the network adapter.  Disabled IPv6.  Tried both static and DHCP addressing.  Verified that there are no scheduled tasks running at two-minute intervals.  Tried Network Troubshooter during the 12-second downtime window and it reports there was "no gateway" and that it reset the adapter.  However running ipconfig during that 12-second window shows there is.  (I wrote a batch file to log ping failures and run ipconfig since I'm working remotely).  No difference when pinging a local PC on the same subnet or a a public IP address.  All WIndows updates are up-to-date.  System also has a WiFi adapter which I disabled (no difference enabled or disabled.  Also note there no available wifi hotspots on this network).   Would appreciate any insight into this frustrating problem, especially as it …
