Exchange 2010 with SP3 and Rollup 21 and 22 will just stop sending and receiving about every 6 hours. Everything appears normal, outlook clients can connect and external devices show connected. Mail is not queued or held, it just goes into no mans land. The only fix is a full reboot and all of the mail you missed starts to populate. It will work normal for another 6 hours and do the exact same thing which again requires a reboot.

The logs show an active sync error but that does not appear to be the issue.. The only other thing I see is a warning, 12025 "transport service is disconnecting performance counters"

The other thing, once it enters this state you cannot stop the transport service, it just hangs on "stopping"  ..  after a reboot all is normal, for again 6 hours. Sending sometimes will work longer but also does the same thing shortly after.

Platform is windows 2008r2 with all the latest updates..

Any help is appreciated..

Hi guys

We have an Exchange 2010 environment on Windows 2008 R2.

How do you export all of the mailboxes, their usernames/aliases but also the organisational unit that their usernames are part of into a CSV?

You already helped me export the mailboxes and their usernames, which worked great. I would like to add organisational units into that CSV also, is this possible?

Thanks for helping

Dear Experts,

We have this User folder on our file server (running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard) that is having a permission issue.  
Initially, it started when this user created sub-folders inside and started to organize her files by moving them into these sub-folders.  Suddenly the user could not open any moved files, with "Access Denied".  When we, system administrators started to check permissions and share options, we realized that the test sub-folders we created in the same locations cannot be removed by us.  The ownership belongs to us, system administrators, and we have full control permission.  We do not have this issue with anyone else.  We tried to have the user log into the same account from another PC, same issue.
We created another user folder, but when this user creates a sub-folder inside, the same issue repeats.  It seems as if something is over writing her permission, but we have thoroughly checked out this user's profile, using utilities such as AccessEnum, and also comparing the profile to other users', nothing seems to be different about this account.
Another test we have done is to share this folder with Everyone, and also to a particular user, but nothing seems to allow us to control the permission of the sub-folders, and no one, not even system administrators can open any folders inside sub-folders, or delete sub-folders.  We can create or rename sub-folders, and that is it.

Please advise.

I installed Ubuntu on my Windows 10 machine. The main thing I want to do is run grep
on specific WINDOWS directories. But when I run ls from root I'm seeing these
directories. Is there a way I can run grep (and other bash commands) against
the windows file system? My previous laptop had a BASH CLI I could launch by
right clicking in any directory in Windows Explorer. But I don't know where that
came from but it was really useful. Since I wasn't able to find exactly that I
loaded Ubuntu. But now it looks like I have a little Ubuntu sandbox when I
need to be able to run the commands against the Windows files. Thank you!

It appears the latest Windows 10 Build (17134.165 or 167) took away the old school change file extensions.  I need to be manually choose my file type for tif by selecting MODI as a program.  How do I work around this upgrade?

 I may be able to download File Types Manager from Nirsoft for getting around this issue but it doesn't allow me to select MODI out of the box.   Has anyone played around with this program?

Hi guys

Ever since having a Windows 10 machine with Office 2013 Professional, every single time a file is left open for a bit, it suddenly turns into a 'Read-Only' file. I have to keep on doing a Save As and renaming it to the same location. I have permissions, but I am being told that I don't have permissions and that the file is 'Read-Only'.

Any ideas? Is there an update/fix?

Thanks for helping

What are the steps to set the Server 2016 firewall rules (via group policy) so that only certain IPs can access port 445 (file & printer sharing / SMB) on servers & workstations?

I need to make sure that only authorized workstations and servers are able to browse the C$ shares on the servers and workstations within my network.

Hi, my laptop requires that I use the function key in combination with either F6, F7, or F8 to control my volume on Windows 10.  My other laptop doesn't require the use of the function key.  This is a Samsung Notebook Model BR8GSMT.  Is there a way to avoid the use of the function key?  Thanks

Within all of my Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual servers the color of the PowerShell window is black (and isn't blue).

This makes it difficult to differentiate between the PowerShell window and the command line window.

What can I do to make the PowerShell window always appear blue (and not black)?

Is there any way of making this change via some kind of group policy or global setting so I don't have to manually make this change on each and every virtual server?

Hi,

I have a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V server running 3 VMs.  2 VMs are Server 2012 and the third is Server 2008.  Sometimes, I can't communicate with the Server 2008 from any device on the network.  I cannot ping it (using its STATIC IP--not hostname) or connect to it through RD.  I can ping from the Server 2008 to the other servers.  I just disabled the firewall on the Server 2008 temporarily to take it out of the equation but still not accepting pings.  I tried a tracert to it and nothing as well.  Please let me know how I can diagnose this problem.  I haven't tried restarting either of the VMs because people are working on them.  And, actually, there is one user that's connected to the Server 2008 now so I know that they were able to access it earlier in the day.  Thanks for any suggestions.

Office 2010 will not update.  

I have tried downloading the service packs (1 and 2) separately and no luck.

No joy with Windows Update either.  

Did a repair of Office as well.

Currently on 14.0.4734.1000 (32-bit).  This is Office 2010 Pro Plus.

I need to get Outlook updated so I can use Office 365 and Microsoft bailed on support.

Ideas?

Hi.
We have a problem with Outlook search.
When we try to search within a Outlook, it doesn't bring up any results.
The System is Windows 10 64-bit (all updates), Outlook 2016 (Office365). There are several (and only) POP3-addresses configured, all are going to the same PST-file (size is around 1,5GB).

What we've tried:
Reinstallation of Outlook/Office (also deleted all Registry entries for Outlook)
Rebuilt Index
Configured a new User

What was working is, that the search is working when we start Outlook in safe mode. I have then turned off all add-ons and started Outlook in normal mode, where the search was not working again.
In safe mode, it says, that the Windows Search Service has been turned off (which seems to solve the problem).

So does anyone has an Idea how to fix this in Normal Mode?
Many thanks.

incumbent IT provider named the windows AD domain name the same as the external web/email domain.
not the end of the world until they want to access their own website.

we have other clients with the same issue. we just drop an A record in Windows DNS referring to www then the IP provided by web host provider, then bam it works no issue. EXCEPT FOR TODAY OF COURSE! this was just working fine for this client but they changed web devs and hosting provider, so we just had to change the IP address for the A record that already existed.

we try to access the website within the client's walls and it sends us to an IIS Server page. we do not run IIS internally so do not thing its hitting our own boxes.
when accessing the website via a browser we do begin with www.domainname.org

when we ping www.domainname.org it resolves to the new IP we are pointing to in A record. same if we ping just www.

just worked with godaddy who is registrar and DNS provider, the confirmed all good
just worked with ISP, they confirmed DNS servers that we have in the forwarders section of MS DNS. we also added 8.8.8.8 & 4.2.2.2 to forwarders.

cleared all browser cache.. will be fine with hosts file entry as not a large user community if that is a quick fix.

rebooted servers last night as well, just cause we have not yet done that.. still nothing.

this has to be something really stupid and appreciate it if someone could point it out to me.

I am working on an application that talks to 3rd party API, the API access gets locked out for every n requests but the API is not responding with an appropriate error message saying the account is locked out, and also now they are not ready make any changes to the API to send an user friendly message. We are getting some common weird message whenever account is locked out based on which we are understanding that the account is locked

are there any best practices to handle these kind of lock out mechanisms in C# Windows Service for the API calls?, I wanted to log message that the account is locked out and the password has to be reset and also to send an email

When I go into the System Center Configuration Center 2016 administration > Updates and Servicing node I am made aware of two updates that are available to be installed.

How can I determine if I can simply install the latest update without first installing the other update?

Hi,

I have a Windows 2016 Server Standard with Hyper-V installed.  I have two VMs:  ADSRV and RDS (Active Directory Server and Remote Desktop Server).  Something happened the other night and now the RDS is in a Saved state.  I've seen this before and I was able to delete the saved state and continue on as usual on another server.  This time, if I try to delete the saved state, I get an error message:  An error occurred while attempting to delete the save state for the selected virtual machine.  RDS failed to turn off.  I've checked the details on the tskmgr and the only vwmp.exe that's running or showing up is the ADSRV.  Microsoft's website said something about deleting .bin and some other file.  I couldn't find those files in the VM folder.  I found the vmcx and vmrs files.  How can get this VM back up out of the saved state?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm following the instructions on setting up Direct Access on a Server 2016 server using the steps found here.

What steps do I need to follow to "Obtain a server certificate for IP-HTTPS connections, with a subject name that matches the FQDN of the server" (step 3)?

I would like to do this with an internal certification authority.

Please provide me with the exact steps on how to do this.
