Some users within a Server 2016 AD network sometimes intermittently disconnect from a Kyocera Task Alfa 3051 copier and are unable to print.

This happens in an office with around 50 laptops. When this happens it only affects one laptop at a time and all the other laptops are able to print without any issues.

The printer will become grayed out and the users will receive errors printing to it from their Windows 10 computers. When this happens the printer that is automatically mapped by Windows 10 and the printer that is shared through Server 2016 and through Active Directory are both affected. No other network or internet connectivity is lost on these laptops when this happens.

This happens even whether the user's laptop is connected via Wi-Fi or a network cable.

Whenever this happens I check the Network properties on the affected laptop and find that the Network type is either Domain or Private and is never public.

To fix this issue I will have to delete the printer from the Devices and Printers applet within Control Panel and will have to re-add the network printer back to Windows 10.

What can be done to prevent this issue from occurring so these Windows 10 computers will always stay connected to this network printer and will never lose their ability to print?

I have a user that left the agency. He had a network share that other people need access to. He worked in a department that has a departmental share which everyone in the department has access to. To make the departed user's share accessible to others I created a shortcut to his share in the departmental share which works fine from the file server but when mapped users click on the short they get "The item ....this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Do you want to delete this shortcut." This is a windows 2008R2 file server wit windows 7 clients. In the properties of the shortcut I placed the UNC path in the target field. What am I missing?

I have two computers that need to be networked together.  computer 1 can only see public folder in computer 2.
If i use the ping command both computers will talk to each other.
But in network, computer 2 cannot see computer 1 at all.
both computers are set as private.
What do I need to do to get the two comptuers properly networked?

Hi,

I have a network share on a NAS drive that I want to store all my Technicians time sheets in.  I have created the network share and a folder under that share for each username for every tech.

I have setup the logon script to:

net use w: \\NAS01\Timesheets\%USERNAME%

and this works well to share the correct folder with each Technician.

My issue is that each share has a Display name of the USERNAME but what I wanted is for the share to be called TimeSheets for every user - even though they are all mapped to their own shared folder on the NAS.

Can anybody help with a way to modify the login script so that this can be achieved?

Many Thanks

My domain controllers have stopped replicating.  When I try to force replication I either get the error "There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper" or "the target principal name is incorrect.

Some of my users are beginning to have authentication issues of course.  I do not know what caused this and I don't seem to be able to fix it.  Can anyone provide guidance?

I have already confirmed time sync is working and correct.

Thanks

I Have 1 external NIC , 1 Internal NIC, 2 Internet connections and a Cisco Switch.
Can I Use ISP redundancy feature with the mentioned resources?

NIC 1 Configuration: (External)
IP: 192.168.1.2
Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (Modem 1 with Internet connection 1)

NIC 2 Configuration: (Internal)
IP: 172.18.1.2
Gateway: None

I'm thinking something like this:
1. Connect both NICs to the switch
2. Connect both Modems (2 internet connections) to the switch
3. NIC 1 Config remains unchanged
4. NIC 2 Gateway changes to Modem 2 IP (172.18.1.1)


Is ISP Redaundancy possible ?

I am about to set up a 4 mile wireless bridge.  The customer's inventory software provider says that the remote office must have at least 100mbps speed on the LAN, just as if the remote office staff were in the main office with their PCs cabled directly to their switch.  They don't need to know about WiFi performance in the office, but rather just the speeds between the PCs in the remote office and the server in the main office.  I need a recommendation for an app that is easy to use and addresses this need.  If it costs something that is fine.  TIA

Dear,

What can be the reasons to the below error? The Win 2008 server was newly set up. I go to set up one role (for a domain) and then have got this. Why?
0
We have Windows Domain Controller running 2008 version which needs to be upgraded to 2012. This DC doesnt have any FSMO roles, but it has roles for;

1)Radius Server
2)Certificate Server
3)Service Account for Internet provider

So what will be the best approach to transfer these roles to new DC? Should I name the new DC same and the IP address should be same? Do I have to check DC IP on all switches and routers? What I have to do so that this DC doesnt start advertising as the main DC in our environment, we have single domain, single forest setup.

Thanks.

I recently split our DHCP addresses between to DHCP servers.  One server has a scope of the first 127 addresses (1-127) of a network, and the other server has the remainder (128-253).  Things appeared to be working well.  Both servers lease addresses in the proper ranges, and I can ping them.  However, on two clients that host web interfaces for various programs, the web interface will not open.  They do open on the localhost.  Are there any ideas about what could be causing this?  I believe both of the clients in question have the proper DNS entries.  However, one client is set to get its address by DHCP and is assigned a reservation.  The other client has a static address.  I have added A and PTR records for both.

I managed to setup a test lab with 3 to 4 different vlans using a cisco router and a cisco switch. I can ping ALL remote hosts fine but when I try to use remote desktop from one windows machine to another on a different vlan it times out and doesn't allow me to access that server. On the network I am connected to 10.46.72.x it works fine if I rdp to another machine but when I am on a different vlan this doesn't work. I am using a cisco 3750 24 port and a 1900 series router. Are there any commands to use to allow for the vlans to talk to each other. I am also new at configuring cisco equipment please have mercy on me <SMILE>

Dear Experts
Installed windows 2016 standard and configured it to function as domain controller, DNS server and DHCP.  It is observed the after promoting the server to AD domain controller the IP of the serer in the primary dns changed to local host I mean pointing to 127.0.0.1, manually changed to the actual IP.
While creating the forward and reverse zone had selected “do not update dynamic updates”
Following are the issues faced
1.      While joining the client system that is windows 10 pro to domain it accepted to join but message shown “preferred dns could not be changed” and then after reboot able to login with domain user. Please let me know where I am going wrong
2.      When the user logon and click on network browse the domain controller can see netlogon directory but does not show the user home directory, please let me know what I have missed.
3.      I made the normal user a member of domain administrator group in the server and then logon to the client system with this user but he does not get admin privileges when click on network to change IP address it prompts for logon and password but it does not allow administrator login to client system nor it does not consider this user as administrator who is actually member of domain admin group  
4.      Before joining the client system to the domain controller is required to create A and PTR records manually and then after join the system to domain
Please help me understand and suggest the steps to resolve the above 1 to 4, this…

Here is my set up:
2 domain controllers, Windows 2008 R2, 600-700 devices in the domain.  Everything is working well with no errors in the event log.

I am moving this customer to a hosted server outside of their LAN.  There is a site-to-site VPN established between the 2 locations.  The new DC is Windows 2016 Standard but the IP is in a different subnet.

When I try and add the new server to the domain I receive: An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for the domain xxxx.local could not be contacted.

In the details it shows the domain controller SVR records were found but they are not available.

I have verified DNS, I can ping from the new server to both DCs by IP and FQDN.  I added a static A record on the DC for the new server and I am able to ping the new server both by IP and FQDN from both DCs.  i have run DCDIAG and everything passes.  I can browse through Windows Explorer to the DC and see the shares SYSVOL and NETLOGON although I get access denied when I try and open them.

The only errors that I get are when I try and join the server to the domain or try dcpromo.

We recently changed a client's subnet from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.71.x.  All is fine, except that we neglected to change one of their devices to the 71.x subnet.  

We're remote now.  If we were onsite, we could change a computer to 192.168.1.x, connect to the device, and change its IP to 192.168.71.x,, then change the computer back.  But we're remote.  

If we change that computer's IP to 192.168.1.x, we lose internet connectivity.  

Is there a way we can still change the computer's IP to 192.168.1.x, but still use the default gateway of 192.168.71.1 to get to the device?  It's looking like we may have to go onsite to do this...

This is a very simple LAN; SOHO router/firewall.

Thanks!

Hi All,

We have MPLS network between the Head Office and Spoke site. There is no internet access over the MPLS. Our current services are not reliant on the internet so current setup works fine. We do not have any access to the current MPLS routers at the head office or at the Spoke site and we won't be able to change the configs in any way.

We are exploring a new software setup at the Spoke site but it will require internet access. This software runs on Windows 10 normal PC but needs internet to connect to its own Cloud for emails & dashboard reports etc. It does not work over "Proxy" for some reason.

At the Head Office, we have internet but not currently linked with MPLS. We can put a new router (Router 2, as per diagram) that can allow internet access.

The Win 10 PC can ping the router-2 IP (10.10.1.4) & we have tried to key in the static route: "route -s add 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 10.10.1.4 but still, the internet does not work.

Tracert shows the requests are getting dropped at the next hop. For Ex: "tracert 4.2.2.2" will not even each the Head Office network. Is there something else we can try?

Regards,
Kuldeep Saxena

I have been looking after a client as their outsourced IT Admin. I am the only one who has the domain admin privilege.
The owner of the business would like the company's controller to have the right to manage folder access permissions on the server. He said "There can be a lot of manipulation involved as people come and go, and it might give us a lot of flexibility of the controller can handle it on the spot."

1. If i have to make this happen for the client, how can I make it? Should the controller have to be the domain admin in order to have the right to manage folder permissions?
2. I don't think this is a good idea because managing folder access permissions is the admin's job. What are your thoughts? Any risks of doing this, etc?

Thanks!

I am in the process of getting an outdated server upgraded to a supported OS. Running VMWare 5.5 and we get getting a system off a Virtual Server 2003 x86, and upgrading it to the only available system possible a virtual Server 2008 x86. The original server is an application and file server. It has 3 IP addresses assigned to a single nick and the DNS has 2 of those IP's assigned to static FQDN's.
Here is where things get unusual...

When the original server is the one bound to the domain I can ping it from all of my systems. When the new computer is bound to the domain it will not respond to ping from only certain subdomains (inbound ICMP v4 & v6 are enabled for file and print sharing.. so it isn't the firewall).

The 2nd and 3rd IP's do not respond to any type of ping even though they show they are connected to the network. I have even tried changing the configuration by removing the 2nd and 3rd IP's from the one nic and giving them their own individual nic cards to see if they might respond from there. Again no such luck.

I am going crazy trying to get this to work properly but I can't seem to find a way to get the nic's to talk correctly, nor can I get them to respond to all of the subdomains that the original server had no issues responding to.

I am hoping that someone may have seen something like this before. I realize that an in place upgrade doesn't always resolve all issues but I've never seen something like this in any previous attempts.
Thank you in …

Is there a way to route email traffic from my server to another computer with 2 NIC cards installed;
one NIC on the same network segment as the server and the other on a different network?
the goal is to get email traffic routed from the server to the computer with 2 nic cards then over to nic on
the different network address

Server Win12R2 [192.168.0.5/255.255.25.0; gw 192.168.0.11] to the gateway computer >

Dear Team, we grant permissions on Active Directory 2012 folders but seems like it did not correct.

We'd like to have this schema:

- User1(duypvn) and User2(trang.vu) are members of group IT
- User1 can Delete (Modify), Read, Write subfolders and files inside folder IT (#1)
- User2 can only Read and Write subfolders and files inside folder IT (#2)

We did these settings but could satisfy only #1
AD1.PNG
AD2.PNG
AD3.PNG
We got this error when testing #2. User2 COULD create NewFolder, New Files but COULD NOT rename them although it had Write permission

AD4.PNG
AD5.PNG
Is there any way which an user can read/write/modify folders/file but CANNOT delete them? Can you please suggest? Many thanks!
