Hi guys

On the weekend, our Exchange 2010 server stopped receiving emails because the C drive was below the accepted threshold. We also use Messagelabs to route any inbound emails and outbound emails.

Once I resolved the issue today and got the C drive above capacity again, emails started trickling through. However, we are still getting emails coming through from Saturday evening.

My question is: Is this down to the original sender and how often their email system tries to resend the original email? (i.e. beyond our countrol?)

Thanks for helping

A closer look at five essential enhancements that benefit end-users and help MSPs take their cloud data protection business further.

I have several directory structures and I want users to be able to edit files in those directory structures but I do not want them adding files or changing the directory structure. Can this be done with NTFS Permissions?

There are so many IIS redirect questions. I've looked through many but they all seem to look to redirect to a sub domain. I have the opposite issue. Warning, NOT an IIS admin.

Our vendor setup our new server. Everything works great. Except the site is as follows (not real of course):  www.site.com/sandwich/yummy.aspx. The site will not answer any other responses. I'm looking for www.site.com to redirect to the actual live app of www.site.com/sandwich/yummy.aspx.

My initial gut feeling says to create a new Virtual Directory, type in the details and Bob's your uncle. But I'm not sure of this.

Thoughts from the community, please.

My application sends out text messages to employees selected to work overtime.  This is coming out of my PowerBuilder application (running on Windows Server 2008 R2) using a 3rd party company to provide the SMS capability.  I'm currently using a company called Clickatell and I'm not happy with their either their web portal and reporting capabilities or their support, which is all on-line, no ability to call anyone directly.  Does anyone know any other companies that provide a similar service with phone support?

I have build up a new VM with WSUS role on Windows 2012 (Old WSUS server was on 2008).
On the new server under Administrative Console for WSUS its not showing any computers.
I have named the new server the same as old server, what do i have to do to start seeing computers under WSUS?
All computers are pointing to new server on group policy.

Thanks

I have an application that uses Apache running on a windows server that I need to create a certificate for. We have a 2008R2 server that is a CA that is trusted by all the machines in the domain. I understand the basic process of doing this, but all my research shows how to's that don't apply to my specific situation. (apache running on linux, submitting CSR to public CA etc.)
I'd like as step by step as possible as this is a production machine I'm meddling with. It can go down for an hour or a few without much impact, but I'd look bad.

Thanks in advance to all experts for your time and insights.
Issue: We had two 2008R2 Domain Controllers (AD FFL/DFL is 2008R2) that both acted as GC, DNS... I replaced one of them (DC2 - secondary DNS) with a new 2016 DC (using same name and IP, but DNS was cleaned properly and demotion of old one and promotion of new one worked flawlessly). All DNS records replicated between the remaining DC1 2008R2 and the new DC2 2016 and I do not see any replication or DNS issues in the Event logs. I now started the process of testing to replace the last 2008R2 DC (DC1) and part of the test was to turn off the existing 2008R2 DC1 and run the entire domain off the new 2016 DC2 which has all the FSMO roles on it. Everything seemed to work fine, but we experienced issues with Outlook seeing the Exchange servers as well as several application servers having issues with client application software (on W7 workstations) connecting to them. Pinging servers by name and IP worked fine, but nslookup kept insisting that it queries the DC1 which was off. So I removed the DC1 from the static network card DNS settings on the Exchange servers and Outlook managed to connect right away. I changed the priority of the DNS servers on the DNS list network card) on the application servers and as soon as I did that everything worked. I realize this was a DNS issue and know that it might take 15 min + before the workstations try for the secondary DNS server, but I am also wondering how to overcome the problem …

Random loss of access to files/exe's on public shares... I have public shares where everyone has full access... Its a location where we have all of our programs located for the users to access.... Randomly we have some users that get permission denied on some of them... Odd thing is they can open other exe's in that folder perfectly fine, just randomly some cannot... Quick fix is just to reboot their machine and everything works fine again... Just really annoying to tell them to just reboot... Trying to figure out what could be the issue. I have checked the server and cannot find any kind of logs... On the client i have tried just gpupdate /force instead of a reboot but that doesn't work either... Wondering if maybe its a windows update or a specific OS patch that has this issue? Anyone have any ideas?

Hello.  I am currently running an old version of RabbitMQ (3.5.6) running on Windows 2008 R2, and yes - discussions around upgrade are on the table.

In the meantime, I am trying to setup users with 'management' permissions to have read-only access to production.  The problem is drilling down on queues, they are still able to delete/purge, can create, isn't there a way to completely make a read-only user?

I have referenced document, http://www.rabbitmq.com/access-control.html, and tried the syntax '^$' to try to limit access, but does not seem to work.  By setting the user as Management, it at least limits their access on the main overview page, but need to limit it more than that.

Not finding a lot of successful documents as most comments indicate that they did not include this in the design.  However; I'm hoping someone else may have figured out a good way to handle this.

Thanks in advance.

The transaction resource manager on volume \\?\Volume{a818df19-f109-423d-9591-f81f13ab57c9} encountered an error during recovery.  The resource manager will continue recovery.

Event ID: 134

I have deleted the .blf and .regtrans-ms files from System32\SMI\Store\Machine\    
and did: fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\


Chkdsk, SFC, disk cleanup, defrag all done.  There is plenty of disk space.


They errors happen 10 at a time at the top of the hour (not every hour).
The Volume{####### etc} seems to be different for every batch.



At a loss, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I recently added space to a VM disk in vSphere and went into Windows Disk Management to extend it.  To my surprise, the Extend Volume option is greyed out.  Never seen this before.

Any suggestions?

Windows Server 2008 R2 environment.

Thanks!

Win7 source pc unable to find the WDS server from the Image Capture Wizard.  I receive an error message "network location could not be reached".  I can ping the WDS server (Windows 2008 R2) ip and the source pc non-stop.  The WDS boot-up screen shows up on the source PC so I have to believe that it is communicating with the WDS server.  I've updated the drivers in the capture image and added the registry entry "maximumBlockSize" (set to match the value of the Cisco 2960 switch).

After all that, still can't get the WDS server to capture the image from the source PC.  Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated!

Server 2008 R2 VSS Issue

I am currently having an issue where the NTDS VSS writer is not showing when running the VSSAdmin List Writers command. This is causing an issue with our third party backup software not showing any data to backup for AD. I have verified that the Active Directory Domain Services service is running and have even restarted it multiple times an the writer never re-appears. This issue happens randomly after the server has been running for a few weeks without a restart. The moment I restart the server, the writer returns and the backups will go back to working and showing the appropriate data in the AD backup.  Scheduling downtime constantly to fix this issue is not ideal as I shouldn't have to restart the server to correct this issue. Is there any way to get the writer back up without having to do a restart? I have copied the currently active writers below:

Writer name: 'Task Scheduler Writer'
   Writer Id: {d61d61c8-d73a-4eee-8cdd-f6f9786b7124}
   Writer Instance Id: {1bddd48e-5052-49db-9b07-b96f96727e6b}
   State: [1] Stable
   Last error: No error

   Writer Instance Id: {088e7a7d-09a8-4cc6-a609-ad90e75ddc93}

I have a server that has 2 drives, C: (OS) and D: data.     The C: drive has virtually no space left.   But when I run Disk Cleanup it keeps saying it can clear 9.86 GB from Windows updates.   But when I say yes to run, it acts like it is opening space but never does.   How come it is doing this and how can I make it do what it says it can do?

Can I run a Windows 2008R2 Host Terminal Server from inside a 2016 Gateway Server?
0
Now that I created my Win7 Enterprise image, I've ran the sysprep util and the Windows 2008 R2 server that has WDS configured is ready for the image.  I have done this process several times before without a problem but for whatever reason, when I boot the source pc up using network boot, the source pc gets the WDS splash screen.  So I know the source pc is communicating to the WDS server.  However once I enter in the server name for where the image should be stored, I get a network error.

In the error log, I see the connection between source pc and WDS server timed out.  I'm running a constant ping to the source pc so I know it's still communicating but further research showed there may be something with our Cisco 2960 and/or possible vlan configuration.  Where would I check for a setting that would drop the traffic between the two?  Note: all of the network traffic is on the same lan and doesn't go through any routers, just the Cisco switches.

Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.  If you need additional information or for me to clarify anything, please let me know.

Hi,

I copied a Windows Server 2008 domain controller (Hyper-V VM) from company to my home for testing. I impoted the VM and seized all FSMO roles to this dc.  DNS server and all AD tools cannot locate the AD information after I restart the dc everytime. Please refer to the following screenshot.




After I used the tool NTDSUTIL and submited  roles -> connections, All DNS and AD services decame normally.




I want to know that why happpen this issue and how to fix it.

Note this domain contain 6 DCs, however, I only copied one dc to my home network and I will delete the other five dc later.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

It appears there are some chkdsk errors... this is an old SBS 2008 server... already EOL, we are planning to replace first thing 2019.  

This server has some critical files on it (Accounting, HR, etc)

I am a bit nervous to run the chkdsk /f due to risk of data loss/problems/it running for days... etc... but of course I realize there must be risk running with these errors.

Curious if anyone has any input on how bad these errors might be (given that it does atleast say 0 bad sectors)

See screenshots for details

thanks!

I get the following error when trying to access a server by Remote Desktop Connection from DomainE with an account from DomainH: "The specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted"
I want to specify that there is an outgoing trust relationship between DomainE and DomainH, so that every user from DomainH to have access to resources in DomainE.
The user has admin rights on the server from DomainE and this is happening for all the users in DomanH and all the servers in DomainE.
I don't get this error if I try to connect with a user from the same domain.
The trust is in place in both domains and DNS works properly in DomainE. Also I am able to resolve any host name from one domain to the other.
The DNS servers from the other domain are set as conditional forwarders on each of the mentioned domains and I've checked the DNS servers that are set to the NICs of the servers from DomainE.
The domain functional level is Windows Server 2008R2 and all the servers are using the same version of Windows. The users from the DomainH use Windows 10 to establish the RDP connection to the other domain.
I get no errors when I try to add users from DomainH to security groups in DomainE.

So could you please give me a solution to this problem?

Migrating the DHCP role from 2008 -> 2012R2 using the basic: netsh dhcp server import / export commands. The new server shows green over IPV4 and all the scope info moved over, and is authorized. I stopped the DHCP service on the source server as well but can't get the new server to issue addresses. Everything I've read makes it seem pretty seamless, so I'm not sure what step I'm missing
