Windows 10 Version 1709 is due out Tuesday October 17. I have it running now and so far (from the point of view of quality) it looks pretty good.

Microsoft has admitted they pushed Version 1703 out the door before vendors could adapt to it.

So far it appears they have learned to test twice before issuing once.

ATTENTION APC UPS USERS! (could apply to other UPS batteries!)

I thought it was only responsible of me to follow up on this question after REAL EXPERIENCE which could have been FATAL!

This question is right on topic with a recent event this week, where I've spent the night in hospital!.

Red Light on Smart UPS 2200

After suffering the effects of Respiratory irritation caused by inhaling toxic gases in the datacentre.

One or Two APC 3000 UPS failed in the datacentre, with battery faults, the gas possible Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) filled the closed datacentre with possibly Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S).

I only open the door, and walked in for exposure for what could have been more than 10 seconds, it was enough to overwhelm me causing headache for the rest of the afternoon, nausea, coughing and later breathlessness after advice from "NHS 111 Online" I went to Accident and Emergency, where they wired me up to ECG, Heart Rate, Blood Pressure monitors, took blood samples every hour for testing, and oxygen and nebuliser.

I was discharged after 12 hours, being advised to rest, take it easy and the exposure and irritation should get better over 48 hours.

I'm still feeling tired, cough is getting better, but still my chest still feels very heavy which I'm told is the inflammation of the lungs,

My recommendation should you have a battery light is to isolate from the Power Supply Immediately.

How can I share out an old *.exe application to multiple users in an AD environment who are connected from home via VPN? The requirement is that the execution of *.exe must be from the office network, the *.exe application calls a bunch of databases from other servers in the office and will disconnect if the application runs from the user's computer via VPN.

I am thinking of setting up a Windows 2012 servers and allow RDP connections for users to run the *.exe on the server from home(via VPN). Are there any other ways?

I did windows update (Windows 7 ) on desktop that did not use for almost a year.  After updates,  I have no control of my C: drive or changing users etc.  I just keep getting error messages that say I have to talk to administrator, but I was the administrator and now apparently the updates made someone else the administrator and can even open the C: drive, as I have no authority.  What happened?

add your account to local computer user and group under MIISAdmins.

Make sure that the MIISAdmins group exists. If the group is missing, create a group that's named MIISAdmins.

Here's a simple security tip: lock your computer when you're away! An unlocked work station leaves you ridiculously vulnerable and it's a simple thing to avoid.  Just get in the habit of hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del and choosing Lock every time you get up (for Windows anyway, adapt as needed for your specific OS choice).

You wouldn't leave your front door wide open when you're not at home, right? Same principle here :-)

@Brandon: I've also seen people get a browser extension installed that would cause Guy Fieri to start showing up on webpages they'd visit. (Note: I don't really endorse these sorts of shenanigans—it can be easy to accidentally take it too far and inadvertently do something actually malicious—but I will admit to getting a good chuckle out of them.)

We have a chronic issue with our Exchange Server 2013 environment. Currently, our environment consists of a single Exchange Server. After installing the latest Windows Server 2012 r2 security rollup, the Microsoft Exchange Replication Service stopped working and the Exchange DB changed to an unmounted service. We were finally able to restore operation of the Exchange Server by recovering the DB and remounting. We found out post rollup, from Microsoft support, that there was an issue with .NET 4.7 Framework installation which was included in the latest rollup and was not fully tested on the version of Exchange that we are currently operating. We were able to successfully roll back from the update. However, there is an ongoing issue with the Microsoft Exchange Replication service, wherein it crashes and does not restart. When the service is not running, it causes issues with OWA, ActiveSync and Mailobox Transport. All incoming messages remain in the SMTP queue and are not delivered. Once the Mailbox Exchange Replication service has been restarted, Exchange operation appears to return to normal and Mail flow resumes. One of the directly related error messages posted in the Application Event log is below:

Faulting application name: msexchangerepl.exe, version: 15.0.1320.0, time stamp: 0x58fe8372
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.18666, time stamp: 0x58f33794
Exception code: 0xe0434352
Fault offset: 0x00000000000095fc
Faulting process id: 0x76bc

I've had a couple of instances were Windows 10 is being allocated IPv6 addresses despite there not being a IPv6 DHCP Server on the network.  It's caused some Domain connectivity issues.  Anyone else seen anything similar to this?

That is an IPv6 site-local address. MS recommends against disabling IPv6. I would add IPv6 range to DHCP (https://www.ultratools.com/tools/rangeGenerator) because site-local addresses sometimes contains the MAC address

What’s Wrong with Your Cloud Strategy ?

What’s Wrong with Your Cloud Strategy ?

Even as many CIOs are embracing a cloud-first strategy, the reality is that moving to the cloud is a lengthy process and the end-state is likely to be a blend of multiple clouds—public and private. Learn why multicloud solutions matter in this webinar by Nimble Storage.

Just bought myself one of these - Transcend JetDrive Go 300S - I got the 128GB Model and being the impatient person that I am, decided to pay for premium delivery from Amazon so it would get to Australia within 3 days. Arrived right on time so kudos to Amazon for keeping their delivery promise.

Have been playing around with it for a few hours now and my first impressions are that I am suitably impressed.  Even though my iPhone 7 is already a 128GB, I find I've never got enough space so it's already about 70% full, which made me go looking for something to increase it.

It's fast, the IOS app for my iPhone and IPad is great and it doubles as a nice 128GB USB 3.1 Thumb Drive for my Windows PC as well.  Should be great for quick compressed Backups of my iPhone when travelling without my PC too!

Once I've explored all the available options and tested the unit thoroughly, I plan to write a review about it as an article here.

Wondering if anyone else owns one of these (or similar) little gadgets?  What do you think of them?

I actually regularly carry around two SSDs (512GB and 1TB) and use a USB to SATA cord!

I've actually just recycled a Toshiba 3 Enclosure with another 1TB SSD. (and If I could find it on this pile of paper on my desk, I would photo graph it)

The flash used in modern day USB flash drives is of very poor quality - Source - Kingston!

Good to know - The upcoming Windows update, Redstone 3, will patch the vulnerability that enables EternalBlue exploits. Not all SMB version are that vulnerable as compared to SMBv1.
Microsoft doesn't recommend disabling SMBv2 or SMBv3 for Windows client and server operating systems. Disabling SMBv3 will deactivate encryption that provides protection from eavesdropping on untrustworthy networks. Organizations should proceed with caution when disabling either protocol as a temporary troubleshooting measure.

Look out for this patch and be diligent in implementing it to the machine. Here is one vulnerability (CVE-2017-8620) that has high potential to be of parallel to the WannaCry and NotPetya vulnerabilities -- it is described as 'The Next WannaCry Vulnerability'. Finally, if patching is planned but delayed, Microsoft's recommended temporary mitigation against CVE-2017-8620 should be deployed: disable the WSearch facility within Windows.

Chrome: Select Multiple Tabs
Here's a fantastic Google Chrome trick I just learned: you can Ctrl-Click to select multiple tabs at once. Then you can move them around or break them out into a new window as a group. Give it a try! Seriously great and simple trick that I never knew about (and probably should have, given that Ctrl-Click is so common for multi-select in plenty of other applications).

Don't hold out on me EE, what sort of simple tricks like this do you know about?

FEW TRICKS TO SPEEDUP PENDRIVE DATA TRANSFER RATE:

1.File system should be NTFS: If you want to Speedup Pendrive , then make sure you have NTFS as file system. You can do so by Right clicking on your pendrive and selecting Format,Select NTFS File system, Uncheck Quick Format And Click On Start.

2.Disk errors: To check disk errors go to the properties tab of your pen drive, then select ‘tools’ tab. You will find a ‘check now’ button, click it and then hit ‘start’ to fix the errors. The time taken for scan depends on the size of the pen drive.

3.Device policy: Under properties of your pen drive, select ‘hardware’ tab. Then select USB device from there that will lead you to a pop up window where you need to change settings. You can even have better performance of pen drive by clicking the option under ‘hardware’ tab.

4.Format: This is one of the effective options that many users have tried. When you have used your pen drive for quite a long time, you can speed it up by formatting the device.

Carefully test your pen drive with the factors given above to Speedup Pendrive. In addition to this, you should keep checking for these aspects regularly, say twice or thrice in a month.
