Hello Experts,

We've created remote desktop users in windows server 2008 R2 Standard & every user have an own folder in D: drive, how to restrict to folder access to user among themselves along with d: drive. Only one folder everyone can access e.g. D:\FTP.

e.g.

Remote User            Folder in D:\            Allowed Access            Restrict Access

administrator      N/A                        Complete D:\            N/A
Philips                  Philips                  Philips                        Dell, Root, Wendy, Manager
Dell                          Dell                        Dell                                Philips, Root, Wendy, Manager
Root                  Root                  Root                        Philips, Dell, Wendy, Manager
Wendy                  Wendy                  Wendy                        Philips, Dell, Root, Manager
Manager              Manager            Manager                  Philips, Dell, Root, Wendy

Our SQL Server network connectivity is broken! I can only get on it via a terminal from VMware.

Our server is set to a 192.168.0.x address, gateway 192.168.0.xxx. Ipconfig shows a 169.254.x.x address, I'm not sure why it is getting this.

Despite several re-boots I cannot ping it's IP address and several customer facing apps are failing. DNS looks OK, other servers with same settings are fine.

Can anyone help please!

Hi,.. We have old Exchange 2007 in our Environment. We migrated to Exchange 2013 as staging and now we are on 365  with Exchange 2013 still running as Hybrid server. Also we have DC's on 2016 server. We are trying to Decommission Exchange 2007 from our environment. When we try to uninstall the Exchange roles we get an error: "Cannot find atleast one global catalog server running Windows Server 2003 SP1 or later in the local Active Directory site."

Can someone please advise us on how can we proceed on Decommissioning Exchange 2007. I think we need to use ADSI edit to complete our task as DC's on 2016 Server do not support Exchange 2007. Please advise..

Thanks

I am looking for PowerShell code to export a list of all empty security groups in a specified OU or in the domain, to a .csv file. I found the following code online.

Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties Members | where {-not $_.members} | select Name | Export-Csv H:\documents\reports\emprtygroups.csv –NoTypeInformation

The output is the empty groups in the whole domain. I think it finds both security groups and distribution groups but I always just want security groups.

I am just going to paste the code into a PowerShell command window so it can be bare bones and you can just give me two separate pieces of code - one for the whole domain and one to specify a specific OU.

I have PowerShell code for another similar task where the OU is specified by Distinguished Name like this:

$OU = "ou=Security Groups,ou=our OU,ou=User Accounts,ou=Our department,dc=our-organization,dc=com"

That would be an acceptable way to specify the OU and maybe I could just remove that line to specify the whole domain?

The names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Thanks,
Don

Can Microsoft Windows Server 2016 IPAM perform dynamic DNS updates?
I deleted a DNS resource record in DNS Zones on IPAM, but this never updates the DNS server.
The record still on the DNS server but is not available in IPAM

Hi,

I'm trying to find out if you can push feature updates for win 10 via WSUS on Server 2008 R2.
Everything I've seen so far suggests you need at least Server 2012.

We can push normal updates currently even if the machines report as Vista machines instead of Win10.

Is my research to date correct or has anyone any info I've missed.

I have two 2012 domain controllers (Prometheus and Chronos), and both the Domain and Functional Level are at Windows Server 2003.  We've migrated from Windows 2000 to 2003 domain many years ago.  Everything has been working fine, and have not seen any errors with AD or replication, and we have not experiences any issues DNS or communications issues with our on-prem Exchange 2010 server.

All of our computers are Windows 10 Pro Computers.

So, I decided to view Active Directory Sites and Services, and discovered an DC (Nemesis) is still listed under server, but should not be there.  I believe it was a former DC and was properly demoted many years back.

Nemesis - Sites and Services
So, I am not sure whether I should simply delete it.  I do not want to start having AD issues.  

So, I also decided to check DNS.  As you can see below within the forward lookup zones (.msdcs.ch13.local and ch13.local) Nemesis appears a name server.  The ch13.local\_msdcs only showing this server (Nemesis), and not the other servers (Prometheus or Chronos) does not appear to be correct.

DNS View
So, I don't know whether I need to delete "Nemesis" Server within Sites and Services and also the entries within DNS.  Not sure doing so will actually cause damage and not help.  Remember, AD and DNS have been working fine with no issues/errors for many years.

Below I added the output for Repadmin /Showrepl and DCDiag with details including DNs.

Currently I am getting a credential prompt to open the FTP site, which is causing my application to have access issue.

How i can get the password for IUSR anonymous user ?

We run an oracle 10g database server running on a windows 2003 server for a web application and we are noticing when our reporting application tries to access the database or we try to access the database through sql developer there are connection wait times up to 6 minutes.

We have 3 TNS listeners on ports 1521, 1522 and 1526 whats strange is our web application running on tomcats uses listener 1526 and thankfully queries are run immediately and never encounter a problem but outside of tomcat we getting a lot of "ORA-12518: TNS: listener could not hand off client connection tips" errors

Since the issue started we rebooted the database server to resolve it and until  it occurred again but it's becoming more frequent and we can't keep rebooting everytime as a solution.

I tried restarting TNS listener service in the services panel but it does nothing to resolve the issue.

Would anyone know how we determine what is happening and how we can resolve it.

Hi

Busy with a project upgrading server for 5 AD site network.
All sites were on Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003 except for 1 site which I upgraded to Server 2012 R2 DCs and Exchange 2007 on a Windows server 2008 R2 machine.

Then over the weekend I upgraded 2 sites with Server 2012 r2 DCs and 2 x Exchange 2007 on a Windows Server 2008R2 machine.
Most of the mailboxes are migrated to the Exchange 2007 server, but emails are queuing on the 2 Exchange 2007 servers.
I also think during the installation of Exchange 2007, I missed the step to specify the Bridgehead Exchange 2003 server, and not 100% sure if this is the route cause.

I also ran the PS command to create the routing groups for Exchange 2003 to route emails to Exchange 2007, but emails are still not leaving the queues.

Attached is the Errror in Queue Viever.

Please please can you assist.

Our old Exchange 2003 server was mothballed over a year ago.  The DC was not.  The Exchange server running on Windows server 2003 (VMware guest), the DC is Windows 2000 (physical box).

The CEO wants to search mail on an account but the Exchange server is complaining it cannot find the domain controller and the IS, MTA stacks, and System Attendant services won't start.

I'm not a brainiac so I could really use some help.
