Hi,

I have a user that is being locked out on the domain within seconds of unlocking.
I used Netwrix Account Lockout Examiner and figured out which machine was the culprit. If I turn it off, no problems, the minute it comes back onto the network it locks the user. The machine is a remote test pc running windows 7 that he rdp's into here and there.

When I run an examination everything is "ok,nothing found" but "Examing Logon Sessions" shows this:
...Failed due to the following error: Access is denied. (Exception from HResult: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)

We changed his password on the domain and sync'd everything, removed all mapped drives, checked services logins, made sure there were no local logins, still no joy.

Any ideas?

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

I have an HP computer that was running Windows 8.1.

When Microsoft provided the offer (a year or two ago) to do a free upgrade to Windows 10, I when ahead and installed it.

A few days ago, my computer stopped working, probably after a Windows update, and would never boot into Windows 10 again.

I received System Recovery media from HP, and did a factory reset.

Now, windows 8.1 is back on my computer.

My question is, do I need to purchase Windows 10, or can I do a free upgrade again?

hello all

I am trying to create a batch file to add registry key.
its should run on both 32bit and 64 bit
there are 2 different registry keys for 32bit and 64bit.
so if it is 32-bit, it adds the 32-bit registry key and vice versa

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I'm looking to configure a VM lab where I can install separate OS's for development testing and learning but I'm not sure what is the best setup for this. I'm running Windows 10 and have a 1TB external hard drive i'm planning to use as storage for the VMs. I just need a low-key personal lab but need some direction to get this set up.

Thanks!

I have Database.mdb which is a 570 meg file on a Windows Server 2016 shared directory.  

When I drag it to  \\CPUDesk c: drive it takes 10 seconds.  This is a $400 windows 7 proiDell Inspiron 620 desktop that is 6 years old.

When I drag it to a \\CPULap c: drive it takes 50 seconds.  That is a brand new $700 windows 10 pro Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with a fast i7 chip and 8gig memory and a super fast SSD SanDisk x400.

I am shocked that an old cheap desktop is so much faster than the latest technology laptop.

At first I thought it might be a bad Cat 5 cable or switch port, so I swapped the laptop and the desktop and reran the test with the same result.

CPULap has a 1000 gig NIC which is confirmed because the network switch shows two green LEDs.  

Does anybody have any ideas of how I can trouble shoot this?  

rberke.

P.S.  At the risk of giving "Too Much Information", here are some additional facts, to muddle the picture.


I tested the copy on other cpus
*1 year old windows 10 pro laptop ($1300 quad core Lenovo t460p) also took 50 seconds.
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
*3 year old windows 10 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 5 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 10 seconds
* 4 year old windows 7 pro desktop took 50 seconds


* 2 month old windows 2016 server took 1 second (no surprise, because that copy didn't even go through the switch.)

We have 4 Windows 2008 R2 domain controllers (DC), 2 at each site connected via firewalls. Can anyone tell us why they are trying to communicate over tcp/45003-45007 ports? The main service failing is lsass.exe. We cannot find any documentation from Microsoft stating that Active Directory should be using this port range. For compliance reasons we cannot open these ports without backup documentation. Can anyone help explain why all 4 of our DC’s are using these ports (45003-45007)?

I use the native backup system on my SBS 2011 Std server. I currently backup to a 2TB drive. I would like to use a higher capacity drive so that I can keep more backup sets than what I can currently store on the 2TB drive. I have a 6TB drive available (not currently being used for anything). Can the backup system properly use this size drive or does the windows 2TB limit come into play (i.e. will it fill the entire 6TB)?

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.

A new Window 10 workstation can't allow any scanned files from my Canon multifunction printer. Other Window 10 stations works fine. Firewall has been disabled but it doesn't help. I also check the shared folder right and I can access the it through other computer.

Is there any free software that can check any incoming connection so that I can verify whether the Canon has established a connection to my PC or not.

Thx

Hi, I did windows updates and they crashed my Exchange Server VM (Server 2012 R2+Exchange 2016).

When I got Windows back up, and the Exchange Services running again, I noticed I could not log in, I lost the Trust Relationship between the Email and DC.

I got that fixed , and email back up, but then I noticed everyone in the domain lost all their email back to last Aug.  New emails were coming in and being delivered, and we could send emails out.

Logged into ECP and noticed the Database was in Failed mode, so I got the Database back to Healthy, but I'm still missing my emails.

I do have backups, but was wondering if there was anything else I can try?

Thanks!

Does PTA simply round-robin between each PTA Agent.  PTA does not do Deterministic Load Balancing, then what does it do?

We are trying to run a .jar file from a network location and we keep getting the error "Error: Unable to access jarfile".  We have tried linux and window shares so it is not a rights issue. We can not copy it over to run it because all the files with it are huge. Here is the command we are trying. I understand that the .jar file is trying to run on the network drive is there a way around this? Thanks!

 java -Xmx768m -jar "\\fs1\groups\bios\program1.jar" -b \\192.168.15.20\Transfer\run.xml

Open in new window

Does any one know how i can recover or reset the administrative password with using any CD or tool. I only have the laptop with me.

Thanks.

In view of KB40568902 damaging our computers, we first took to hiding it.  Then, to be more conservative and not knowing what's coming next, we turned off Windows Update service.

Today I'm looking at a computer that had the Windows Update service Disabled and Not Running.
It got updates last night and, I'm rather sure those must have included KB4056892 as the computer appears to be among those most damaged.  We are going to have to reinstall Windows 10 Pro on this one - to follow the many we've already had to do.

This is a big deal.  It appears that the Windows Update service state didn't protect us on this one.  So the others must be unprotected as well.  That's a surprise.  Should it be a surprise?  What else can we do?

I don't *like* turning off Windows update because I fear it will interfere with installing printers at times, getting .NET Framework 3.5 turned on (meaning installed really) when necessary, etc.

Hi All,

I currently have 4 DC's listed and only 2 are in production. The other 2 that are not being used were VMs that no longer exist and I no longer have access to them. Is there a way to forcefully remove them and to do a metadata clean-up? Everything I've found has a solution for people that still have access to that server.

Hello,

i was wondering is someone has any info if this is possible, without first joining Win 7 machine to local domain.
Workplace Join app requires that Win 7 is joined to local domain to be able to join that machine to Azure AD.

So, can Win 7, which is in Workgroup be joined to Azure AD?

PS> Just to be clear when i say Azure AD, I am not talking about VM in Azure running ADDS or something like that, but just simple Azure AD.

Regards,
Ivan.

Hello Experts -

Does anyone know a good Windows 7-compatible piece of software that will allow me to manipulate 2 jpg images (one on top of the other)  with the interactive ability to resize, crop, and label the combined image at varous angles?

Idealy the software would also allow the transparency of the background image to be varied in transparent intensity.

I can see some possible candidates by doing a Google search, but without some hands-on experience, I'll have no way of determining which particular piece of software really offers the desired characteristics.

Thanks for any advice you may offer.

Hi All,

I recently had to rebuild a Windows Server 2k12R2 Server. Current Set-Up

2 x Windows Server 2k12R2

DC01 has all the FSMO roles
DC02 (before rebuilt) - kicked it off the domain, demoted the server
DC02 (rebuilt) - I gave it the same name and IP address as the one that I demoted.

Issues:
  • I'm unable to replicate, when I do repadmin /syncall, it says that the RPC server is unavailable
  • I am able to ping the rebuilt DC02 by IP
  • I have attached a screen shot of dcdiag
  • It says no host record, but when I check the DNS manager of DC01 and DC02, I do see it
