Hello All,
I have a question about Data Migration.

I have one active directory domain with a messy stuff. I want to create another active directory domain with selected data to Migrate from previous domain to the new domain.  

I know there's one way and two way migration but i want to replicated only the selected ( my choice ) data to replicate.  

is it possible to migrate only the selected data from old messy domain to new fresh domain?. if yes how can we do that ?

would be greatful for your recommendations and suggestions.

Thanks.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

I had this question after viewing What is ATL100.dll.

I'm trying to deploy my application on a Windows 2016 Server and I'm getting this same error message that "ATL100.dll is missing"?  My application has run on Windows 2008 R2 Server for years without issues and without this particular DLL file.  About 2 years ago, for a short time, my application was running on a testing server which was running Windows 2012 R2 Server and ran with no issues there (although I have no idea whether or not "atl100.dll" was installed on that server or not).  There appears to be a lot of Internet information regarding this particular DLL and it appears to be problematic for a number of other users (these cases tend to involve Windows 7, 8 or 10, rather than the servers OSs).  All I know is that this is a Microsoft DLL, my application was written in PowerBuilder and documentation I've been able to uncover DOES NOTE that PowerBuilder applications are dependent on this DLL from Microsoft.  I've downloaded numerous versions of this DLL, tested with all of them, but my application just won't run on this Windows 2016 Server no matter which version of "atl100.dll" I deploy/copy, and, without the file, the error message "ATL100.dll is missing" is ALWAYS returned.  Does anyone have any insight into what may be causing my problem here?

We have been hit with audits.  We are in the process of standing up a new farm to replace, but the audit is currently against our existing XenApp 6.5 farm running on Windows 2008 R2.

One item we need to disable is "Sticky Keys".  I have gone through the forums and tried to manually set the reg key, loaded via script, but not having any luck.  Seems all the posts are really old.  So, maybe they no longer are valid.  So, looking for a way to set this via Group Policy or Citrix Policy to disable sticky keys as we can't allow users this option.


Additionally, I have added comments to my other ticket, How to lock down "Open Command Windows here" when accessing certain auto-generated printers on XenApp 6.5, if you have further thoughts around locking down printers.

Any help is appreciated.  This particular audit is finding all kinds of gems.

As users come to work every morning, I'm noticing that on a few systems, there are duplicate IP entries in DNS with the same time stamp as system connect to the network. They can access internal network resources but have no external connection to the internet (web browsing, etc.). They are connecting to wireless AP, receive an IP, but for some reason, they receive a duplicate IP. Deleting one of the duplicates in DNS resolves the issue. I have scavenging set to remove stale resources on the hour. What am I doing wrong?

If relevant, this issue primarily happens with Apple computers connecting to the network.

My server crashed yesterday. My drives and green not red lights no errors. I saw a bunch of errors regarding dns. DHCP gpos etc and users were not able to surf the web. I bunch the server and it came back to the login page but when I press control alt delete nothing happens. Move the physical mouse cursor doesn’t move. Rebooted pressed F8 and selected last known good configuration and issue persists. It’s not the keyboard and mouse because I’m able to select options prior to getting into the login page. Any ideas what’s going on and how to get into the OS

We are installing a new Exchange 2016 server on Windows 2016 to replace existing Exchange 2010 server on Windows 2008.     I am reviewing the domain and have questions in regards to what upgrades if any I need to do on the domain itself.

I have 2 domain controllers both running windows 2012 R2 Standard
The forest Mode is currently Windows2008R2

So the questions is do I need to upgrade the forest level?    Do I need to upgrade the domain controllers?    Or both?

Dear All,

Our company has AD and DNS server on the same server using Windows 2008 R2 (server1) are running fine, until the dept. which managed the Windows AD changed to Windows 2016 (server 2).  The problem was quite strange, when we ping and nslookup looked it could resolved the name to IP but when we are using the web browser, it took very long sometimes we can connect some timeout, if we put the server and IP on the ..\etc\hosts the problem disappeared. Also when we pointed to the old DNS server (server1) there was no problem, even if I dont' put the web server on the ..\etc\hosts.

Is there any know problem using DNS server on the Windows 2016?

BTW we cannot changed anything on the DNS servers since not managed by us. We only manage application server, but lots of connection problem after they changed to Windows 2016.

Notes: I only want to know the possible caused.

Thank you.

Do files on a windows/ntfs drive leave any clues on the last time they were backed up and if so what particular attribute would that be - regardless of backup software & solution in operation.

I am looking into specific risks in granting users full control over their home/user drives. basically we have a file share \\fileserver\userdrives - which each employee has a personal area (referred to as home drives internally), with permissions which restrict access to themselves and standard admin support groups. The server admin has granted full control to each individual over their own home drive, this to me seems excessive and modify should suffice, however, they can only amend permissions with full control over their own folders, nothing higher, e.g. share access to another users home drive. I was hoping to tap into your experience/expertise on why this is a bad design, and any horror stories you could share on what could go wrong with such a setup.

Or perhaps on the contrary, whether you don't see any risk granting users full control over their home drives. In case it makes any different, the drive on which the homedrives are stored, also stores team documents, although in another path, e.g. g:\data\userdrives g:\data\teamdrives

Hi EE,

If I am using a Windows Server 2008 server it possible to create a CNAME alias that points to directly to specific SQL instance (2016) on a Windows Cluster.

The cluster setup is follows:

Cluster Nodes
LABTSTSQL01 - Windows Server 2016 Standard
LABTSTSQL02  - Windows Server 2016 Standard

Cluster Quorum Model: Disk Witness

For example: CNAME = SQLAAPRD/SQL2014APPS to LABTSTSQL01.asdf.local
                        CNAME = SQLAAPRD/SQL2012APPS to LABTSTSQL01.asdf.local

Any assistance is welcome.

Thank you

I'd like to delete the contents for 4 directories in Server 2008 R2.

These directories and their sub-directories are shared.

Trying to delete gives a warning prompt that they are shared and users will not be able to access them any longer.

There are hundreds of directories to delete.

Is there a way to automate this?

I'm very shortly going to be "forced" (by my client) to deploy my application, which I've been hosting for them on my own server for the past one and a half years, back into their internal network.  After spending countless hours learning more than I really ever wanted to know about protecting myself from cyber-attacks, I'm not thrilled with this, but, that said, I can't afford to lose my major client.  So, what's my question?  I've been hosting using RDP on Windows 2008 R2 Servers and now they want me to "move" my application onto a virtual Windows 2016 Server and the game plan is to keep running it as a RemoteApp on the Windows 2016 Server.  I've had a brief look at the server that I need to configure for RDP, but it's like learning a foreign language.  Can anyone point me in the direction of any good "step-by-step" documentation on how to set up RDP on a Windows 2016 Server?  I'm totally lost and could really use some assistance here.  As usual, I've searched the internet for information, but everyone's setup is different and I'm just looking for the basics.  Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

On my main DC (PDC) I have started to sporadically get event ID 1869 ,1655 ,1869, 1126  global catalog errors They last for a few hours, once an hour

The only changes that I recently did were added a self signed certificate to that DC. (I did it to try and configure LDAPS) and upgraded DFL/FFL from 2003 to 2008R2

I did repadmin/ replsum and everything looks good. I dont hear any complaints from end users.  This is the only DC that I am getting these errors on.

What could be causing these errors?

I have attached the errors in even viewer.

Thank you.
