Hello Experts

I was getting the following error message whenever I tried to power up my VMware Windows VM

image
A very helpful expert provided me with an answer and I went ahead and purchased the CPU here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Pentium-E5400-2-7GHz-Dual-Core-CPU-/263073163965

Unfortunately, I'm still getting the error message.

Can someone let me know what may be the problem?

Cheers

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We're talking an ASUS net book (tablet  that can detach from small keyboard) Modal T100H Mobile Dock.

Somehow I have managed to turn on the number lock so that instead of a "j" I get a "4 or some such, and so on for the letter set that prints numbers when you set it to. Except that I did not do that intentionally.

There is NO number lock key on the keyboard.

In case you did not get that, let me repeat it....THERE IS NO NUMBER LOCK KEY ON THE KEYBOARD!

I say this only because I did some searches and found that as the answer.

So experts, what's the solution?

Hi All,

I installed Server 2012 R2 Standard on 2 different servers using 2 different installers. Now, on the first there's no 'side bar' and if i want to reboot the server there is an option to do this by going through the Windows Start Menu, on the second server, there is a side bar, and i need to go through there to get to the power settings. How can i make the second one like the first, why is there a difference?

Win10/Office 2016:

Hi.

I received a Win10 update overnight, followed by an Office update when I logged onto Outlook this morning.

Now, I notice that my Pinned files in Word look weird. e.g. Current file(s) missing and at least two files that haven't been there in ages have returned to this list.

Has anyone else seen this behavior? Is there a way to fix?

Thanks,
Steve

Hi

I manage various Active Directory domains that contain Windows servers and am looking for a solution to manage servers on all the domains.  These are separate domains in separate Forests and are on separate VLANs.

I am aware of SCCM but from investigations I would need a Distribution Point on each Domain but that is not practical.  Is there a tool(s) that I should use for the following?:

  • Assist with server deployment by adding roles and installing base applications
  • Manage updates of non Microsoft products (or Microsoft patches not available via Microsoft update), including managing reboots before and after installation
  • [Nice to have]: Ability to roll out a Group policy change to each domain without having to log into it
Thanks

Hi

I'm in the process of building a website it's still at the early stages on a local machine

Is it possible to view this over the internet just with a ip address  or do I need to register a domain?

What steps within windows are there to do this?

I'm running WAMP

for deployment of windows 10 through system center configuration manager, i read in some articles that MDK is integrated with SCCM

which i think is windows  ADK ? am i correct.

Does SCCM use USMT to do so which is part of MDK?

my question is:

A)if i want to deploy windows image or OS  i can directly do it from SCCM  distribution point or application  so  why use Microsoft deployment kit

B)and if i want to deploy the image to let us say 100 computers, how long it should take through SCCM

Trying to find an official Microsoft product to hash an entire drive in MD5 or SHA256.

I am running into a very frustrating error when trying to deploy a Windows 10 pro x64 image from a WDS server to a Lenovo L560 laptop. I am getting the attached error (Really useful eh?)

I have tried quite a few things but have not had any luck. Things I have tried:
Re-capturing the Image
Using a different laptop
Getting the most up to date SCCM driver pack
When I remove the unattend xml file the error does not some up, it just wants me to install Windows by hand (Which defeats the purpose)

I booted to a usb and found this error log in F:\Windows\Panther\setuperr.log

I installed SQL Server 2014 Express in Windows Server 2012 Standart. I've restored a backup of SQL Server 2008 and everything works fine on the server.
I've enabled TCP via Configuration Manager as well as Management Studio.

But I have a problem: I can not configure ODBC access from a terminal, where I downloaded and installed the ODBC driver 11.

Are there any settings to be made in Server 2012 or any other detail in Server 2014 Express?

Tks.

Translate from portuguese:

"Instalei o SQL Server 2014 Express no Windows Server 2012 Standart. Restaurei um backup do SQL Server 2008 e tudo funciona bem no servidor.
Eu habilitei o TCP via Configuration Manager, bem como Management Studio.

Mas tenho um problema: não estou conseguindo configurar o acesso via ODBC a partir de um terminal, onde baixei e instalei o ODBC driver 11.

Tem alguma configuração a ser feita no Server 2012 ou algum outro detalhe no Server 2014 Express? "

Hello experts,

I am using a htaccess file for browser caching/ gzip /url rewrites.
I ussually use windows hosting where I can drop it in the root folder...
However now on a linux server when I try to upload it to the cgi-bin folder inside public_html folder it does nothing.
When uploaded to the root of public_html it generates a 500-error

Is the cgi-bin in the public_html folder the right location to upload this file or are there errors inside my rules?

Any help will be much appreciated!...

Hi,

I plan moving 2 VMs, one 2003 and one XP (Virtual Machine) to a newer ESXi Host.

Because the HAL will change, I will need to reactive the XP / 2003. I assume we can activate the OS ? Anyone have tried an activation recently ?

I'm aware of all the issues running old OS in the network, but it's for an really old apps, internet is blocked and it's backup properly.

Thanks,

Hello experts I've been provided a laptop from my company.  Its a Dell Latitude E5570 with a Intel HD 520 Graphics card, driver is up-to-date, which connects to a Dell DisplayLink.  I cannot get it to disconnect the built in display when connecting it, it always has three displays.  Not sure what to do, I've gone through the display driver properties, display setting in windows, switched cables, docking stations & monitors.  I've exhausted all my ideas.

Oh yeah its got windows 10 pro

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

We are trying to take a regular path and convert it to "short name".  For example:

The normal path:    

C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\avast\

Convert  it to:

C:\PROGRA~1\AVASTS~1\avast\

We understand fir /x returns the short name of a folder or file, but  we are  trying  to convert specific path.

How can we go about this?
(we use Windows 10)

Hello

How to check which group policy is applied recently to my machine?

Thanks

OK, I totally get how the cores of a host computer must be "fully" licensed before you can spin up any VM's.  If you have Windows Server 2016 Standard and you have 2 procs of 8 cores each, you need one copy of 2016 Standard and you get two VM's.  If you have a computer with 2 procs and 10 cores each, you have to get a copy of 2016 Standard and enough core packs then you get your two VM's.  If you want two more VM's, you have to get a copy of 2016 Standard and core packs again.  

Sounds awesome.  

Now for my question:  How many virtual vCPUS's can I assign to my Windows Server 2016 Standard guests?

Every licensing scenario I see talks all day about licensing the host's cores.  But how many vCPU's can I assign to the guests when I open up the Hyper-V management tool settings for a VM and it shows that field where I can type in a number for processors?

Hello Experts,

From my Windows VMware host I'm able to ping a physical machine outside of the VMware network (the physical machine is on my local network with ip address 192.168.1.11). However, I'm unable to ping the Windows VMware host with ip address 192.168.72.129.

Normally, I would just have assumed that the problem was simply because they're on different subnets, but because I can ping 192.168.1.11 from the Windows VM I'm a little unsure why I can't ping back the Windows VM on 192.168.72.129 from 192.168.1.11.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Carlton
