I download the windows server 2016 evaluation ISO (twice in case the first was flawed) and created a USB drive using rufus. The computer is a physical machine, HP ML30 Gen9 with a 2 tb drive (raid 0), 24 gb of ram and the process is a Xeon E3-1230V6. This exceeds the specs.

I get the following message at the end of the installation whether I use Intelligent provisioning or install directly from the USB.

"Windows cannot fine the Microsoft Software License terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation. "



There is no error code. I've trying the installation 4 times, 2 with IP and 2 with using the USB drive directly.

As a test, I downloaded the eval on server 2012 R2 as well which I could burn to a DVD (didn't have dual layer for the 2016 install.) I created the disk and this installation failed the same way.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get past this so I can build this server? It is for a client and I'm starting with the eval and will purchase the license once it's in place and running.

Thank you for your attention to this questions.

Regards,

Bill

Interesting problem:  In Outlook 365 the button in the search functionality are not working, for instance, the "From" and "Has Attachments" buttons are greyed out.
OS: Windows 10, I believe version 1803
What was done: Execute Windows Update with updates to other Microsoft products.
2. A sfc  /scannow was executed  since I could not open the  Mail icon in control panel to create a new Outlook profile.

What I should have done: login to the system as myself and see if it happens under my account.
Notes:  The user can still perform searches in Outlook, I was told that rebuilding the i Outlook index did not help. I even notice an entry in Outlook that said Upgrade search.
I was going to perform an online  repair of Office 365 Pro Plus,  but that could take about up to one hour.
I did not check to see what was installed on the system recently, before the problem first happened, but I did collect the application, system and security event viewer logs.
Next steps is uninstall Office 365 with the Microsoft uninstall /re-install tool then re-install office from office.com
The other  thing, I can try is to start Outlook in safe mode, and see if the problem re-occurs and if it does, then I will have to remove the add-ins and add them back one at a time
I suspect that a recent Windows Update caused the problem so I may have to remove them at a time.
I was thinking of a DCOM permission related to the search functionality in Outlook.

What I am looking for help with is what …

hi folks

i got an interesting issue and haven't figured out any clue to fix it.

a Toshiba laptop (Satellite C855D-S5950) running Windows 10 shuts down its WiFi on its own.

the issue was initially noticed as the user could not press F12 key to switch wireless on or off, then i noticed that actually WiFi and Aeroplane Mode both not worked. WiFi adapter looks fine under Device Manager, and the adapter's Properties look fine as well. no WiFi adapter settings in BIOS.

in Windows 10 Settings > Wireless, WiFi is shown off. if you switch it on, then it will switch off after a short while.

do you have any clue about what's going on there?

thanks,
bbao

Installed RDS on Windows Server 2016. All components installed successfully. Single server.

When I access >Server Manager > Remote Desktop Services Overview > I see a message which states:

"A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool"

All power shell commands I have tried indicate that the server does not recognize the deployment yet all components are listed as installed.

When I attempt to connect these errors appear:

Remote Desktop Connection Broker Client failed to redirect the user LOCALBRITHOME\administrator.
Error: NULL

Remote Desktop Connection Broker Client failed while getting redirection packet from Connection Broker.
User : LOCALBRITHOME\administrator
Error: Remote Desktop Connection Broker is not ready for RPC communication.

2 Windows 2012 R2 Data Center NLB IIS DFS/R URL Rewrite
2 Windows 2012 R2 Data Center Web Farm IIS DF/R
VMware ESXI 6.5

I can not access my web sites externally.   Internally using the VIP of the NLB servers it works.

When I modify my Meraki router to point to the VIP of the NLB no one can access my two sites.

If I change the meraki router to point to the physical address of one of the Web Farm servers that works also.

I need to be able to access my web farms thru the NLB servers

Thank you

Dell R710 - PERC H700 Integrated Driver.

We formatted this server for the purpose of converting it into a Domain Controller for one of our other locations, (replacing a server that died) running Windows 2008 Server R2.

Once we installed Dell OpenManage it kept indicating that the current version (4.05.01.64) is older that the required version (4.31.1.64) of the controller, see image.

PERCH700
I already have the version 4.31.1.64 installed as you can see from the image but OpenManage isn't seeing.

Log File Log File on Jan 18 2019Log File Log File on Dec 7 2018Hi,
 
I have Microsoft SQL server 2000 running on Windows Server 2003.
As seen on the screenshots, the main TMW_Livedatabase.mdf is 29GB.
On 12/7/2018, No user could log in to the system because hard drive ran out of space. I discovered that Log file was 53GB and I had a technician shrink it to 120MB.
But I just noticed several days ago that this Log file has grown back to 20GB again.
I can go thru the steps to shrink the log file again, but like to find the root cause of this phenomenon.
What process is affecting this Log file? How do I troubleshoot this issue?

Fyi, there are several maintenance related jobs that are running daily:
1. Database integrity runs  at 10:30pm
2. Optimization runs dailyat 1am
3. main Database (.mdf) file backup runs daily at 11:30pm.
4. TRN file backup runs every 30 minutes.

In our company we have many conference room computers that multiple users log into at any given time. What we are seeing is that when a new user logs into a conference room computer for the first time not all settings are update. We will do a reboot or a gpupdate and then all the settings in place. Is there any script or command we could put in a GPO to have gpupdate run upon login? We would want it hidden and not impact the login experience. This is for Windows 10 computers mainly but some Windows 7 machines. Thank you.

Hello,

How do you view the startup programs in window 10?

I'm trying to modify the programs that automatically startup when Windows 10 reboots. A couple of places I found online said to go to the Startup tab in Task Manager. However, my Task Manager window does not include a Startup tab:

I prefer the classic Task Manager so I suspect that's what is preventing my having a Startup tab but I cannot remember what setting or app I originally used to get the classic Task Manager. But either way, it seems like a list of the Startup apps should be independently accessible.

I tried going to msconfig > Startup but as shown here, it simply links me back to the Task Manager:

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium machine that is NOT upgrading to Windows 10.  It goes through all the steps with the Media 1809 upgrade tool and restarts the computer.  Afterwards you can tell it is installing Windows 10.  It gets to 52% before failing.  Then it restores back to Windows 7.  I have updated Windows, checked the hard drive for errors, checked the memory, and updated the drivers.  I'm looking for ANY other ideas to UPGRADE this machine.  I will include the setuperr.log file.

I am undecided on whether doing Windows clustering (WSFC) used to be MSCS inside VMWare or not.  I need a way to monitor my application and windows services particularly.  I am not aware of a way that VMWare can monitor windows services and restarted them.  If I do windows clustering inside VMware, I am concerned about the complexity and losing some of the VMware HA features.  Any thoughts or advice on the subject is greatly appreciated.

Sporadic problem with Outlook client (Outlook 2016 client using O365)

More and more users (and myself) are noticing stripped images in Outlook.  Specifically it says "The Linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Verify that the link points to the correct file and location."   The internet is pointing me everywhere but the kitchen sink.  I am inclined to think it is NOT Temporary Internet files since it seems to be happening on a lot of different machines for different users; one of which has only been here two weeks so it is doubtful his internet cache would need clearing so soon.  I have seen articles that anti-malware software could be doing it (specifically Malwarebytes) but I am not sure about that either.  There is also a thought that our web based spam filter could be doing it as well (SpamTitan) It DOES seem to be only Windows 10 machines so far though as far as I know but that is not verified just yet...nor  have I heard it happening with our Macs either; either of which if that is the case; would eliminate spamtitan.  Does anyone have any credible suggestions for what could be at issue that would affect multiple users/clients across multiple sites?  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Windows 7 64 bit.  Would like to set the laptop to choose a wired connection when it is connected.  But, to connect to wireless if not connected to wire.  I have tried setting the correct order of bindings.  Also, setting the metric to wireless connection to a higher number than the wired connection.  But, so far, no joy.  Any ideas welcomed!  thanks in advance.

Suddenly and without a reason some of my Windows 7 machines are having issues with IE and Google Chrome.  Suddenly they can't resolve internal websites.  There have been no changes made on the domain.  And strangely everything pings just fine. Trace route works fine too.  It's like a slow progression of PC's.  So far windows 10 isn't having this issue.  Has anyone heard of this?

Hi All,

we have a client that uses ESET anti virus and recently received their Cyber Essentials Plus.  since then one user who uses Windows 10 is having trouble with outlook (2016).  it just says Disconnected at the bottom.  if we do get it working, it will only work until the PC is shutdown, then when they come in the next day its back to being disconnected.  i also tried to create a new outlook profile but it just says "an encryption connection to your mail server is not available".   their mail runs on office 365 and i have been able to set his mail up successfully on my machine which is located out of their office.  it seems to be only for this one windows 10 machine, other machines are windows 7 and work fine.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit randomly freezes and has to do hard shutdown.  It's not specific to software or any common thing. It could be opening a file or reading an email or just navigating the folders and it just freezes. It doesn't even have the time to do a memory dump.

Moving from Windows to Linux...

Dears,

I am about to embark in the journey of Java programming and I am seriously considering to do a switch to Linux (Ubuntu ? Zorion ? Centos???etc..).

 I would still need to run few apps on Windows, But I have made peace with this and I will be using VirtualBox VM for those specific apps. I have a powerful Laptop. and enough space.(SSD).

My question is which flavor is best for this ? (Development Platform for JAVA , Groovy, Docker...)
I need something solid and reliable..

I have read a bit and it seems that Ubuntu 18.04 is the latest stable one ... and preferable to 18.10

Please your feedhacks...

Thanks
