What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What are some good utilities or programs that analyze event viewer logs (such as the system and application logs) to discover trends and provide detailed explanations of what the different events mean?

After windows 10 update, on power up, I now have to connect wifi manually, and toggle display settings to get 2nd monitor working.

The WIFI settings indicate to connect automatically. Now I go into Change Adapter Settings and connect manually.
The 2nd monitor used to turn on. Now I have to go into Display Settings, select "choose only 1", then "revert" back to extend display.

How can I get both items to work automatically?

Hello everyone. We have setup a Windows Server 2012 r2 instance on AWS. We would like to setup Active Directory and have users be able to auth against it. I understand AWS has its own AD service available, but we run Okta in our organization and need a Windows server Okta agent running to sync against our AD, hence the windows server. I am having a hard time with the users being able to login to the domain on a computer. We would like to use the same domain name of our email (ie contoso.com) which also hosts our website. I understand we need to add something the SRV records to our domain DNS which is hosted on AWS as well.
Also, we use Ruckus APs that can authenticate against an AD, which we cannot get to reach the AD server.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

What are some utilities or methods to remove items from the Windows Explorer right click/context menu (such as the "Add to MPC-HC Playlist" or the "Play with MPC-HC"?

There are several applications that have added things to this menu. While I need to keep these applications installed, I want to be able to remote some of the items that have been added to the Windows Explorer right click/context menu within Windows 10.

Please provide me with the instructions on how to perform a Windows 10 repair installation where the Windows 10 operating system will be reinstalled but all programs, data, and configurations within the current operating system will restored within the new Windows 10 installation.

I have seen other people do this several times and want to be sure I use the right process so that all user data and software programs are preserved within the new Windows installation.

Is this simply as easy as creating the Windows 10 installation media from the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 website, downloading the Windows 10 ISO file, running the setup.exe file and then choosing to perform a recovery installation?

Hi Experts,

I am trying to DIY a home camera surveillance system. I need to figure out what IP camera I should buy, such that the IP camera can automatically store the recorded videos to somewhere in the local are network (like Network-attached Storage).

Below is the situation of my home local area network.
-- a router with PoE (Power Over Ethernet) ports;
-- there is NO Active Directory controller;
-- the location to place camera has CAT6 data cable connected to router PoE port, and there is no extra source of power, such that only PoE IP Camera will work;
-- the computers on the network are set the same Windows workgroup;
-- the computers on the network can share folders to the network;.
-- eventual I am planning to setup a reliable Network-attached Storage in the network.

I want to buy an IP camera that can be configured to automatically store the videos, how ever, I don't know how to select IP camera that works this way. When I look at the specification/description of an IP camera advertisement online, I don't know how to find out whether it will work for me. Can you:
-- Show some example that works for this purpose? You can give me a link of IP camera and tell me why this works.
-- If my idea is not going to work, please let me know why?

Thank you!

Hello Experts.

I have a PC that after a reboot the desktop changed to a basic desktop.  Most of the icons are missing and the wallpaper is back to a basic wallpaper.  I have Googled it and what seems common is that the profile somehow got corrupted and that it can be fixed in the registry but the articles do not say what to fix.  Hope someone can help on this issue.  Thanks!

Hi Experts,

Can anyone tell me a good SCSS compiler for Windows 7?  I do use Netbeans, but not to its full capacity. For example, I cannot use XDebugger, and frankly, my computer is not in good shape, but I need to get this project done.

The structure of my project will have multiple of sub-folders, and CSS files in most folders. So I will need the compiler to work with multiple SCSS files and know which CSS file to update.

Thanks,

See attached. This is what it looks like on a friends computer (nothing in system tray).

How do we get it back? Was there before, timeframe when it happened is not clear.

He told me Wed. he had a popup come up which said eliminate all ads, click here. I told him, don't do that, unwisely already had.

Don't know if this is connected.

Hi,

We have a production Microsoft SQL Server 2014 - 12.0.2000.8 (X64)   Feb 20 2014 20:04:26   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.2 <X64> (Build 9200: ) (Hypervisor)  and RTM version. Out of 4 GB ram sql server assigned 3 GB RAM. User complained about they are having some performance issues while they update their records and it takes several hours.

What i found that they kept their all data, log, tempdb and backup in a same drive. Each databases memory usage are very less. I asked them we need to separate drives to keep data and log file separately.

But SAN Admin replied that, Since we only have one slow SAN I'm not sure moving this data to different drive letters is going to matter if they are still on the same spindles on the same SAN. It may be time to buy a physical for this if better performance is needed.

Please advise me what else i can check and give them suggestions.

Thanks

Hi ,

  I am facing a problem and i hope someone might help  me to solve it.

  I have this old system that runs on Windows 2000 and with  Oracle 8.1.7.0.0 database version.   I was not the person in charge of the backup strategies and configuration for that system and the server crashed.  
  The only backup available was a Windows agent Veritas backup that has the Oracle files and the Database files selected to perform the backup.     The database was never down when performing this backup.     So the situation is that the backups was done for all the files with the Windows agent and i do not have any Oracle backup available.  No Export, no cold backup, nothing.
 
  I have all the database files available.   Is there a way i can recover the Database ?

  I will appreciate if there is a way to restore this database.  Any help on how to start troubleshooting this will be grateful.

  Regards,

   Joe Echavarria.

I have a 2008 R2 RRAS (routing and remote access server) and I'm connecting to it with a VPN connection.

Once connected, I get an IP address and my DNS is correct in that it's my DNS servers on my domain, but I can't resolve anything unless I use the FQDN like computer.mydomain.local.  

As a side note, my end user told me Linux shows no DNS server is affixed to the tunnel and Linux shows no gateway affixed to the tunnel.

Anyway, i need some help resolving this problem.

Where do I look?

Thanks

Hi,
I need some software that will automatically type the username and password into an application but I do not want to give out the usernames and passwords. The applications are Origin and Steam, two gaming applications.

Many years ago, I saw some software that could type text that had been setup in advance.
So the user would setup commands with the text needed and the software would type that text when the user needed it.

Does anyone know any software that can do this?. I've searched on Google but I can't seem to find anything that will do what I need.

My plan is to setup this software with the usernames and passwords.
Then set the software to launch when Windows starts the gaming applications.

Please assist.
