[Webinar] Cloud and Mobile-First Strategy

Maybe you’ve fully adopted the cloud since the beginning. Or maybe you started with on-prem resources but are pursuing a “cloud and mobile first” strategy. Getting to that end state has its challenges. Discover how to build out a 100% cloud and mobile IT strategy in this webinar.

Hi Guys, i have recently upgraded server from win2k3 to win2k8 (when i say recently i mean today :)) users use the old win2k3 machine to login via terminal services to use the machine, what do i need to do on the new machine so they keep their profiles?

i know i will also have to change the nat so it points to new server for TS,

Hi Guys,

This weekend i am upgrading my server from server2k3 to 2012 R2.

What is the best way to approach it, i am thinking

BACKUP old server 2k3 machine
Build new 2012 machine
Demote 2k3 machine as PDC
Promote 2012 as PDC
restore data from 2k3 machine to 2012

How do i restore all the active directory settings?

working on on win2k8r2 server and having trouble with NTFS permissions.  User1 has the following permissions to a folder called 'Statements'.  I want this user to only have Editing and Create access/No Delete capabilities.

Capture.PNG
when User1 creates a .txt file or a .bmp file everything works as it should.  the user can edit, save but can't delete.

However, when they create a Office file like in Word or Excel they cannot edit it.  When they try to save they get the error message: 'Access denied. Contact your administrator.'   Why does this work in a .txt file but not in our Office programs?

Hi there, Folks

I have a Windows 2003 server which we run for a customer. Someone, somehow has managed to get the server infected with the .libbywovas@dr.com.gr3g files ransomware and boy has it made a hash of the server.

I'm looking for help getting the server back to a state where I am able to login. I'm told I can manually remove the ransomware by logging in safe mode. However, logging in in safe mode requires F8 to be sent while in boot stage. I'm finding this impossible because the server is a VPS (VMWare) and it doesn't seem to let me send the F8.

Does anyone know how to get this server cleaned? I would sincerely appreciate the help.

Best wishes
Chris

Hi

We were using windows 2013 server in our network and my predecessors had setup a password reset utility on this server.
Basically they have created a shortcut pointing to the following URL  and when I click this shortcut  
http://Win2003 Server/SchooAdmin/spwr/spwr.hta

It asks to run and when I click run, it opens  a box , where it gives options to change password of students and put the new password  and click reset , it changes the password successfully.

Please see the attached IIS snapshot, the properties of the Default website and if I open the
C:\inetpub\wwwroot folder , I can see the SchoolAdmin and spwr folder and many files are there within this folder.

Now I would like to migrate this password reset program to a Windows 2012 server. Please let me know if there is a way successfully migrating this.

Sorry for the high request but we are cutting over to a new AD Sunday morning and I just ran into an odd complication here.

We are in the process of upgrading from 2003 to 2012R2 Domain Controllers and have both of the new 2012R2 controllers running and in the domain with integrated DNS. The FSMO currently looks like this:

FSMO Roles in UAT
C:\>netdom query /domain:CNXUAT.com FSMO
Schema master               cnxuatdc01.cnxuat.com
Domain naming master        cnxuatdc01.cnxuat.com
PDC                         cnxuatdc01.cnxuat.com
RID pool manager            cnxuatdc01.cnxuat.com
Infrastructure master       cnxuatdc01.cnxuat.com
The command completed successfully.

Miocrosoft KB https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/255504/using-ntdsutil-exe-to-transfer-or-seize-fsmo-roles-to-a-domain-control says:

"Do not put the Infrastructure master role on the same domain controller as the global catalog server. If the Infrastructure master runs on a global catalog server it stops updating object information because it does not contain any references to objects that it does not hold. This is because a global catalog server holds a partial replica of every object in the forest."

SO would I set up as follows? Global Catalog is on both new and old Servers now so I'd remove it off newdc02 before the next steps?

Schema master               newdc01.cnxuat.com
Domain naming master        newdc01.cnxuat.com
PDC                        newdc01.cnxuat.com
RID pool manager…

SOme help if possible,

I have a DC that I am retiring asap but it is an Enterprise CA and has been for the life of the DC and server. This was the main DC that held everything (first ever DC in the domain) until I farmed off the FSMO roles, services etc to other 2008 R2 DC's.

My lack of knowledge with CA's is clearly apparent. We have another Ent CA on a member server that issues certs for wireless and radius access and that is it. It's not issuing certs for anything else.

I'm pretty sure the 2003 CA is not required, but has been issuing a few certs over the last few months to new servers.
 The majority of certs have expired with no ill effects. I would have thought that if it was required for anything, I would have seen ramifications long ago.

Does AD need certs for anything? Again, only 2 out of the 3 DC's have a valid cert from the ENt CA, and the other 2 DC's certs have expired, again, without ill effect.

Can i assume it's just issuing certs based on the fact that it can, as stated in a template somewhere, but they aren't actually required for anything?

I have read an awful lot, but have become more confused the more i read on this, as the majority of things are based on wanting to do something specific, but I don't want to do anything, just find out how to stop issuing certs and then demote and remove to 2003 DC

Can anyone advise?  Let me know if you need further info.  Thanks

In environment where swapping 2003 server for server 2012

Only problem being login scripts being used instead of gpo

Plan is to robocopy remaining folders and amend log in scripts some evening this week

What's the most painless way to do this?

Looking to use below command

To copy all contents including empty directories of SourceFolder to DestinationFolder:

Robocopy C:\SourceDir C:\DestDir /E

With ROBOCOPY <Source> <Target> /E /Copy:S /IS /IT

As per https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1073.robocopy-and-a-few-examples.aspx#Simple_copy

Haven't used Robocopy for a good while, maybe 8 years but current AD setup i've inherited is in a huge mess

Where is the best machine to use robocopy from (I'm guessing the 2012 server) and do all directories have to be shared to my admin account in order for it to work?

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.

Hi all.
Could really use some help here.
We're using an old Server 2003 VM to run Exchange 2007.
We've run into plenty of issues here and there but nothing TERRIBLE up until recently.
It looks like the:
- Offline Address Book (OAB) has an issue (Task 'email@domain.com' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object cannot be found')
- Autodiscover might have an issue.
- Out of Office Assistant is no longer working (Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable.)
- Free/Busy scheduling info no longer works (No free/busy information could be retrieved)

I'm hoping someone with a similar setup can go over the permissions with me so I can see where I messed up.
Thanks in advance!

Hello,

We have a old windows 2003 server with 4gb of ram with hardware raid 5. We are going to retire this server, but before we do so we need to transfer/clone/mirror about 900gb of data.  The problem is that it has almost 6 million files and any type of data transfer I have tried runs really slow.  I am thinking if there is a way to do with clonezilla or any other software that you guys can suggest.

Thanks

All of a sudden, we start seeing random number Services on every computer joined to our domain.   See attached picture.

random number Services
We are able to use "sc delete service_name" to delete these Services but they come back within a few hours.

We scan every computer with AVG, MalwareByte, MSE etc..  Nothing stops these Services from being created.

So far there appears to be harmless.  But we know there are bugs inside our network.

Has anyone seen this before ?

Learn Veeam advantages over legacy backup

Every day, more and more legacy backup customers switch to Veeam. Technologies designed for the client-server era cannot restore any IT service running in the hybrid cloud within seconds. Learn top Veeam advantages over legacy backup and get Veeam for the price of your renewal

We have an old domain controller and one of its drives failed in the RAID. We were able to fix the drive issue. Luckily we had another domain controller to rely on. Unfortunately, this Server also stores our Sharepoint intranet site. When we boot it up normally, it gives a lsass.exe-system error: Security Accounts Manager initialization failed and when you click on ok, it reboots the Server. We are able to boot into directory recovery mode with no errors. We no longer are interested in this machine being a domain controller. How can I get passed this error and possibly demote the Server? I sthere anything i can do in directory recovery mode to resolve the issue or replace or repair lsass.exe just to get the server back on the network?

Hi,

As part of a project, we have created a File Path in the Machine and tried to connect from Mainframe to that destination(Path), it is giving Network path not found.

However we have thought to restart the FTPSITE will resolve this issue but there is an outage if we did a restart to other clients who are connecting to the destination.

Please suggest is there way to complete this issue without FTPSITE restart.  

Thanks for your help in advance.
Venkatesh.

Hello

 I am trying to delete a file on my   " Windows 7 home premium Version 6.1 Build 7601 : Service Pack 1 " laptop. This file is an Windows ISO file that was being used as 2012 R2 OS DVD for VM I had build months ago on VMware workstation.

I have removed the VMs that is using the file . After that I have used  rmdir, deltree rmdir /S etc commands. I reboot the system and stops all VMware related processes and i rebooted again. Yet, I am still getting the following error message in the attachment. I Have also tried both from cdm and powershell with elevated privilege where the command available.

I think I need to delete a registry entry or better how can I forced to delete the file from system regardless the process that using it or anything in general related to the file preventing it from deletion  !

any ideas  ?

Please look at the attachment !
