I need proper syntax to robocopy from \\server\w:\bulk (but .wav files only and maintain folder structure) to \\Server\G:\

This is on an old Win 2003 server. I know the /MT option is not available...what is the best syntax to get all the .wav files, exclude everything else but maintain the folder structure?

Learn SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

I got a PS1 script that's inside a batch job, that PS1 script runs a sql script, I've scheduled a batch job to run that PS1 using Windows server schedule, the scheduler runs and gives the timestamp as having run, when in actuality the the batch (whether it ran or not) doesn't execute the PS1 script, thus not executing the SQL script.

Now, if I was to double click the batch job manually, it runs the PS1 script with no problem, so the problem is something to do with running this particular batch job via the scheduler.

Please advise.
Thx

One of my user's iphone cannot receive emails: she gets the french message "Impossible de relever le courrier. La connexion au serveur a échoué" Impossible to pickup emails. The connection to the server has failed.

The phone can send an email but it cannot receive them.
When I enter all information under Settings / Account- Password and press finish: all is checked green.
I tried configuring her account on my own iphone and it works so I guess it is not related to the iphone.
On the account in Exchange Manager 2003: I see nothing "blocked" and she is the only one having that problem...
I read on the web about di-activating the ssl and so on but why would I need to suddenly play with those settings and since she is the only one ...

Shared Folder Listing inside IIS computerBrowsing by computer name - FailedBrowsing by IP address - FailedFirewallHi,
 
 I have a domain joined Windows 2003 Server (computer name: iis, IP address: 192.168.1.4).
 All of a sudden, I can't list shared folders off that computer anymore. I used to be able to do that.
 When I log in to IIS computer and enter \\IIS or \\192.168.1.4, then I get the listing of the shared folders (please see the screenshot)
 From any computer on the same network, I can PING that computer by IP address or computer name.

 Firewall is turned on and can't turn it off. It must be controlled by the DC.
 This computer is protected by Webroot, Malwarebytes security suite of products,

Can you help?

Newly released Acronis True Image 2019
Newly released Acronis True Image 2019

In announcing the release of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Acronis True Image 2019, the company revealed that its artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology – stopped more than 200,000 ransomware attacks on 150,000 customers last year.

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

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.

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.

We have a Server 2003 file server running in on VMware ESXi.  The C:\ drive got corrupt but, all the data sits on a separate partition that didn't get affected and is still intact.  I removed the good partition/drive from the virtual and rebuilt the C:\, joined it to the domain and added the file share partition/drive back.  Now, people can access the file share without no problems but, can't manipulate any data.  The partition/drive and set to Read Only and the check box to uncheck it is greyed out.  No matter what I do, all files and folders on the share is set to Read Only.  Now, if I go directly on to the server via VMware console, I have not issues.  The problem only occurs via the network share.  Everyone's Rights and Permissions are how they're supposed to be but, something is superseding those explicit permissions.  So far, I've done the following:

Changed the owner to my domain admin account
Removed the Everyone group and added the Domain Users group
Removed all inheritable rights
Did the attrib -r command (various ones)
Disjoined the server from the domain and rejoined it
