Hi All,

we are doing a project in which we are upgrading all windows 2008 domain controllers to windows 2016 server (VMs)
The one which will be done first have NPS role, and is a certificate server as well (doesn't hold any FSMO roles)
any guidelines which can assist in the upgrades and demoting the old server?

Thanks.

Hello - I have a Windows 2008 R2 server that I built recently, and in the first week of use, it has lost it's trust relationship with AD twice.  What causes this?

We had this problem start suddenly 3 - 4 months ago and still can't track it down.  We have Sharp MFD's:  models, MX-3100N, MX-M453N, MX-4111N, which all intermittently, not often, give the user a "Network Error CE-00" error when scanning a document to a network share location.  They can wait a variable amount of time, try again, and it works perfectly.  This is using SMB.  
   We've tried updating the firmware and using the IP address, rather than the DNS name in the scanning configuration, with no success yet.  
   We understand that it is a network connectivity issue in some fashion but still can't track it down.  This is on multiple devices, so doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.  There weren't any other changes during that time period when it started happening.  Thanks for any thoughts on this!

Windows user, on a network when connected to the company network (including wifi), everything is OK, however when on an outside network, message pops up Windows Authentication failed, including Outlook. Can't connect to VPN either.

Hi All,

We have just moved to Kaspersky EndPoint security 10 (10.3.0.6294) from Sophos.
Some of the users have complained that now it takes them few minutes when they start there computer in morning and when they shutdown.
Is there anyway we can monitor whats taking up resources when the computer starts and how can we minimize Kaspersky resource utilization?

thanks.

Hi Experts,
I got some errors when trying to install a Windows Service app on a production server.  The application deployed successfully on my machine, but not production\network server.

Here is the 1st error I got:
An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The trust relationship between the primary domain and the trusted domain failed

To fix the error above, I prefixed the Username with the domain (sample format:  Domain\username).  I also put in the correct password,

I then got  the 2nd error (see below):  
An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done

Any idea what needs to be done to get my Windows Service deployed properly?  

Thank you in advance for your help,
Mrotor

Hello Experts,
We recently moved from a Netapp 2040 (7.1) to a Netapp 3210 (8.1.4P10 7-Mode).

We've noticed a significant slowdown in CIFS when accessing files. Everything is the same network, software and server wise. We snap mirrored the data from the 2040 to the 3210, changed the name and IP of the 2040, rebooted and then gave the 3120 the name and IP of the 2040 and rebooted the 3210.

Everything looks fine except for two things:

1. when we ping the NIC on the 3210 the latency is around 14ms.
2.I have a file from a program we use to determine if things are slow and on the 2040 it would open in less than 5 seconds. on the 3210 it takes 1 minute and 30 seconds.

We are currently doing a snapmirror to another system but we didn't notice any latency when we snap mirrored from the 2040 to the 3120.

We use mainly RDSH servers (Windows 2012 R2) and Windows 7 workstations. We have one file (program built in house) and it doesn't seem to load any slower on the 3210 than it did on the 2040.

I'm running the netapp system analyzer for CIFS but i dont see anyting out of the ordinary. not sure if its a protocol issue or something else.

I'm sure this probably isn't possibly, but is there a way to map 2 different network drives to the same drive letter?
The only way I can see doing it is to change the drive letter for one of network drives. Suggestions?

Hello,
I hope that someone can shed some light on my situation;

We have many RDP farms with terminal users using RDP with roaming profiles...

As users get exited from the company it seems that the user profiles on the actual rdp servers are just taking up space...

To try and help the person in our staff clean up these profiles when they process an exit for an employee I wanted to have a powershell script they can run, (this part works great) that will check all of our RDP servers and list the users with profiles on the servers, and then from the list you can highlight the user profiles you wish to remove & then hit delete & it will remove all of those profiles stored on all the RDP servers.. All of that works great with the script I have so far..

Here is the part I am trying to tweak.. to help ensure an active user profile is not accidentally deleted, or to run as a quarterly maintenance it would be nice to check each user with a profile on the RDP servers to see if the user is still in AD, now that part is easy... however in our org there are many users that do NOT have their roaming profile path (what the user profile is named on the RDP server) matching up to the actual user name in AD...

Here is an example

a user named tmizi has a roaming profile of \\some-nas\user-profiles\tmizimakoski  
So on the RDP servers my script says there is a user named "tmizimakoski" and in AD the user name is actually "tmizi"

There are others as well where the user's …

In this question I am asking about computers that are all connected to a 24 port switch.  I am not discussing connections from home or a different physical location.

My new laptop(CPU#13) CAN connect to my old laptop(Cpu#1) using MSTSC /ADMIN, but vice versa fails.

In other words CPU#1 CANNOT connect to CPU#13.  The connection gets error message:

The computer can't verify the identity of the RD Gateway 74.142.184.130.  It's not safe to connect to servers that can't be identified.  Contact your network administrator (that's me) for assistance.


CPU#13 is my new Lenovo t460p which was purchased several months ago with preinstalled Windows 10 Pro. There was a recent automatic update and it now has Window Pro 10.0 (15063)

CPU#1 is my old Lenovo t500 which was upgraded to Windows 10 last year.< Windows 10 Pro  10.0 (10586)>

Both clients have very similar user profiles for RBERKE@mydomain.com.

The SBS2003 domain controller shows the two computer profiles are identical (except one has windows 10586 vs 15063):
Their Dial-in dialogs both show "Control access through Remote Access Policy".

I logged into CPU#1 and #13; The  >system properties>remote > both show "Allow Remote Assistance connections to the computer" and "Allow remote connections to this computer".

Anybody have any ideas how I can access CPU#13 from CPU#1.

Thanks.

New feature! Upgrade and increase expert visibility of your issues with Priority Questions.

are there any common reasons why devices in a domain may not be showing in system centre, or any pointers on where to start on how to resolve? I am not a SCCM admin myself, but wondered how the device initially gets added to the SCCM database? Is it a manual process when you procure and build new devices to add them into the system.

what is the correct terminology used to get an a top level view and oversight of network infrastructure in use in your private networks, e.g. firewalls, proxies, routers, switches, wireless controllers etc. I would like to request a copy for asset management and CMDB purposes to see what interacts/depends on what, but need some idea on the correct terminology for such a diagram/document.

aside from SQL Server databases, what other types of files would need special/app aware backup processes. My understanding (albeit I am not a backup admin) is most default backup solutions don't backup live running database files, so you typically have to use the DBMS backup features and then use your backup solution to 'backup to backup'. I just want to do some assurance work that the backups our admins are doing is either using an application aware product which can handle running files such as databases, or whether they are using other tools such as the DBMS in built backup features to do them.

also apart from SQL databases, what other files need special backup arrangements, e.g. what else would not be covered by standard backup programs, in your standard windows network environment?

Hi.
We would like to deploy a Windows Server 2016 machine (which will run SQL 2016) on a domain that is currently all 2008 R2 servers.   The domain controllers are 2008 R2.

Are there any issues, if we want the 2016 server to be part of the domain?

Thanks

Each time I attempt to open an address to my NAS in Edge I get this error:

 The connection to the website was reset.
Error Code: INET_E_DOWNLOAD_FAILURE

I type in http://192.168.x.x and get that error.

We are having some "unspecified network issues" between a Windows Vista and Windows 10 computer.  

As we are trying to eliminate causes one by one.  The ping times between these two wired computers will go from less than 1ms up to 15ms with 90%+ of the them being single digits or below 1ms.  

Is this normal?

It's wired by ethernet right beside he router

Win 10

Two iPads and iPhone all fine on wireless - getting 80 meg fast broadband

PC - Every few days www speed start to crawl for unknown reasons

Can't change the router Dns so I changed the pc Dns to google and that fixed it one day .... now problem back and customer on the phone again

It's been scanned with Microsoft Sec Ess and super anti spy and probably malware bytes I think also

What to do next / what to try ?

Should I consider adding a new network card or updating driver on present one ?

The pc itself is fast enough on applications but www speeds are so bad occasionally when other clients are ok

Home setup with 80 meg connection ....

Hi,
When i go to another VLAN with my laptop, It will not get the connection from network or we can say it will take some time to get IP from new VLAN from old VLAN. If i connect the laptop from Wireless it shows connected.
I want the suggestions that i would be able to connect on diffrent VLANs with my laptop and with my netwrok.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I have disabled the Windows Firewall of my Windows 2012 R2 server, When I telnet to localhost 445, it is ok, but when I tenet to the actual IP 445, it fails.

Anyone have idea of why?

I need the tcp/445 for remote log pulling from a SIEM connector.

Thanks.

Good Afternoon,

We have a share on our network (Windows 2012R2) that a specific department has access to.

Occasionally the users of this department will accidentally delete files from this share. Usually we can recover the file from shadow copy or tape, but sometimes we are unable to.

I have attempted to modify the security of this share by denying delete and allowing everything else. While this does the trick, the user is also denied from renaming the file, which is not going to work.

The user must be able to do everything within this folder except delete files.

Kindly advise how I can accomplish this without the need of a third-party software.

Regards,

We have a Windows server folder structure similar to the following:

A1
--B1
----C1
----C2
--B2
----C3
----C4
A2
--B4
----C5
----C6
----C7

I would like to prevent users from being able to delete or move folders at levels A and B.  However, users need full modify access (create, modify, and delete) for level C under all folders.  I have been able to set permissions that prevent users from deleting or renaming a folder, but for some reason they are still able to move the folder.  Is this possible or am I banging my head against an impenetrable wall?  Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

We have a router on 192.168.0.1 and our main server has 2 NIC's one has the IP address of 192.168.0.254 which is the main IP address but the other NIC's IP address is 192.168.0.3 as this is a target NIC for an iSCSI NAS drive.
We're geting issues logging onto the router as it keep timing out but i've noticed that when i try to ping the router on 192.168.0.1 i get a few "reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255" (this is fine)  entries followed by "reply from 192.168.0.3: destination host unreachable" which i suspect is why the connection to the router is not working but i can't figure out why this is  ?
Anyone think why this is ?
Thanks

Hi,

I work for a company where i have 150 Users all work group computers having (Windows 7/Windows 8/ Windows 10 Operating systems installed. We are planning to implement a centralized system from where we can manage users centrally and deploy softwares, push policies to the users as required.

Current Setup:-
We have a Firewall Dell SonicWall NSA3600 , 4 Cisco Switches,Two ISP connections 15 MB each and few wireless access points for wireless connectivity currently. we are shifting to a new office this month end due to the short of office space and planning to implement a centralized user management system.

Every time the user needs assistance, we have to rush into their places and troubleshoot the issues. Also, anytime i want to do windows upgrades/software deployments/push security updates, i'll have to do it manually going to each one of their desks which is a big headache and sometimes can't even do that due to the work load.

Main agenda is to, manage all the users with a centralized administrator that's it. I want all the users (clients) to be connected with a domain controller and should be managed by me and easy to assist whenever is required.


Could someone please assist me on what hardware i should purchase for windows server and what sort of licensing i'm i going to be needed, what version of windows server is good performance perspective.

Help is much appreciated!!

Regards,
Syed
