Our network was hit with a virus and I was forced to remove all of our network policy files under our network location \\server\share\path... etc.  Now our group policy is fragmented and now our network is being effected with those policies gone.  How would I "reinstall" or add those policies back to the network.

Thanks!

Hello Experts,
This is a small LAN with three computers.
Two HP all in one (core i3)
and one laptop hp celeron
They all share files.

I close apps and restart the app and all is ok again

all pcs are set never sleep... is it possible there are other parameters ?
Also is it possible the modem is disconnecting.?

How can I test the LAN in order to see why is it disconnecting ?

I have setup Windows Home Server with an X510 Data Vault for a desktop PC and a laptop.
There is a separate user account for each computer and the back up function works overnight as configured.

Problem:
1. The Homeserver computer shows up in Network under Computers on the laptop but not on the desktop.
2. When I attempt to Restore or View files from a backup from the desktop, the Opening backup: stalls at 79%.

Objective:
1. to be able to view Homeserver in Network under computers.
2. To be able to Restore or View files from a backup on the desktop.

Thanks,
Greg

Hi I'm trying to uninstall Intel Management Engine Components with psexec on a remote machine. The script I'm using is:

psexec \\lt-4364 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\Uninstall\setup.exe"

It says starting and just hangs there while the setup.exe *32 on the target computer does nothing. Does the command only work with msi files?

Hi All!!

Is it possible to isolate a small linux box computer from the rest of my home network but still have internet capabilities. My home network connects to a single router which has various devices connected to it, such as Windows machines and other devices (not many but some).

The ideas is, if the linux PC or other devices are compromised, it will not affect the others. I would also like to to port-forward the linux box for remote use. So by isolating it from the network i can minimise the risks if any.

I understand that the likelihood of Linux devices infecting Windows (or vice versa) is rare but I'd still like to achieve this.

After doing research, i have come up with the below...

  • Installing/Configuring A/V on the Linux Terminal
  • Using IPtables to restrict other devices accessing. - Complete newbie to this but would appreciate some guidance.
  • Different IP Subnets.

I would very much appreciate it if someone would be able to assist me in understanding and designing a solution.

Thank you!!

Having issues when logging from client pc's. When user logs in a .000, 001,002 appears at end of user account. Even in the server when logging in as admin there is a .001 after account name. Also domain account appears now with 2 or 3 after domain name. Lets say domain is trans.com it now shows as trans.com 2 on some client pc's and on the server it shows as trans.com 3. There was an issue a few days ago. Someone other so called tech came and supposedly reset the server. Not sure what he did but I was told that he cleared ASDC, DNS & File Directory and reinstalled it again? But I am looking for a solution to try and get the server and clients back to normal. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

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?? :-)

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 …

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

How can I configure BIND DNS to work as a slave for Windows DNS for different environments.  I already built and configured for DNS Bind to work as a slave in a LAB environment however Im trying to phase this into other environments at a slow pace. I created a template and using puppet to configure the environments.  I put an if statement in there for LAB, would it be a else or elsif for another environment or am I going about the wrong way?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I built a SQL Server with 2-instances, the default and a named instance. The application is connecting to the named-instance and connects fine most of the time. But then the next morning or after a bunch of reboots, the application cannot connect to the named-instance. However, connecting to the default instance is never a problem. I'm not sure if it's a Firewall issue, a WIN issue and/or a SQL config issue. Connecting locally to the named-instance is never a problem. The problem is connecting remotely. And yes the server is configured to allow for remote connections. I am a DBA, so I have info on the db server. Below are the named-instance configs and attached is the error when trying to connect to the named-instance via a remote machine. Please let me know what this might be.

The following are the configs:

01. default instance: 1433 for TCP
02. firewall allows for 1433 TCP

03. named instance: 1434 for UDP
04. firewall allows for 1434 UDP

05. named instance: 1435 for TCP
06. firewall allows for 1435 TCP

07. SQL Server Network Config -> Protocols for InstanceName -> TCP/IP Properties -> IP Addresses:
 - IPAll -> TCP Dynamic Ports set to blank
 - IPAll -> TCP Port set to 1435

08. added SSIS, DBE and SQL Agent service-accounts to 'log on as a service'

09. will be adding [NT AUTHORITY\LOCALSERVICE], i.e. the SQL Browser Service to 'log on as a service' as well
 - this is not done yet, but will be done tomorrow
 - no errors in log for this, but it is …
