Set up:
Windows Server 2008r2
File Shares: iSCSI LUNs hosted on QNAP storage array.

I migrated the file and print virtual machine server via VMWare standalone converter from ESXi 4.1 to 6.5. Migration of VM was successful. migrated source server powered off.

However, once I got the server online, re-add IPs to the server NICs  (1 for server access and 1 for iSCSI LUN), the folder's share permissions disappeared. The LUNs were automatically mounted after I added the IP address on the iSCSI NIC, Folders were there but they were no longer "shared". I attempted to re-enable the share folders, but when I attempted it, it would add the number 2 at the end of the share name. It was as though, the share still existed but not visible.

Additional information:
In Hardware Migration settings in the converter: I selected VMXNET3 as the NICs. Once I brought the server online, I was configuring the IPs on then new NICs, it prompted me the IPs were being used on other NICs on the server, but no other NICs were on the server other than the 2 new one. I reverted it back to E1000. However the same error appeared. I proceeded with configuring the IPs on the NICs.

I did reboot a few times and that did not solve the issue. Since this was unacceptable for, me I powered down the migrated machine. Powered on the original file and print server and all the shares were back online without issue.

Need assistance.

Had a Windows Server 2008 crash, had to reinstall OS.
We're trying to get a basic website that was on the server back up & running. Reinstalled IIS7, created website w\same name as previous. Pointed to previous data directory. Web browsers can get to default.html at the root of the directory, but once we go into subdirectories, are getting "404 - File or directory not found. The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."
The directories and files exist; wondering if it's a permissions issue?
We've tried granting ServerName$ permissions on the subfolders, but still getting 404 error.

Hello Experts,

We are having issues performing an in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise to Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard on a Dell R530 server. The C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setupact.log and C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setuperr.log are attached.

We have already attempted removing the Matrox video driver and running on the standard Windows VGA driver as suggested on the following post but unfortunately this is still not working.

Any ideas?

Kind regards,

Our existing environment only has one Window 2008R2 server. It has DS role and file services.

As a part of BCP part, we are thinking of P2V the physical server to a virtual guest hosted by a vmware machine. It will be only be used during Disaster Recovery.

Can I simply backup the system state of the Window 2008 physical server and restore the file on the virtual server in case we need it ?

Thx

I have a directory (called sales) on a Windows 2008R2 file server that has around 100 folders in it.

D:\Departments\Sales

Is there a quick way to export a list of the 100 folders with who has what permissions on them - maybe to csv file?

Hello Experts, I've recent taken on a position at work administering / maintaining our Citrix farm.  The admin prior to me had set several services to run using his Domain Admin account, when he left naturally we disabled his account in AD.  Disabling his account caused all kinds of errors dud to services not being able to run using his credentials.  I've located several services & changed to a generic Domain account with proper authority, but I'm having a hard time locating all the services, is there a script or another way to tell which services rely on his credentials to run?

Current Config - 5 Server Citrix Farm, running XenApp / XenDesktop 6.0.  All running 2008 R2

HI, i am facing an issue with approximately 40 / 50 random users opening the Computer Tab in file explorer and finding nothing there (normally there would be mapped drives etc), this is despite the fact that earlier in the day they did the same thing and mapped drives were there. when you log off and log back on everything will be normal again for a while then the drives will randomly vanish again.

we are running 14 physical Servers (dell r610)  each loaded with Windows Server 2008 r2, Office 2016 (32bit) and other LOB applications. these servers are configured as a farm and as such a user could end up on any 1 of these 14 servers.

there is no pattern to this the users are not in a specific OU,  the error does not happen on a specific Terminal server and the users it happens to seem to change from day to day.

I have a task assigned to event id 1020 (windows 2008 r2) to send an email when a dhcp scope hits 80% usage.  It had been working fine before when usage was high, but now it is showing that a particular scope is over 80% used when it isn't.  When I look at the scope statistics, it shows there are 41 (82%) addresses in use with only 9 available.  However, when I refresh the lease list, there are only 17 addresses being used, not 41.  How is this possible?

Dear Experts,

This is currently my client's GPO Password settings.

The issue is when a user tried to change the password, the error message says that it does not meet the complexity.

Does anyone have any idea on what could be causing the issue?JS PolicyJS Policy

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

we are reviewing share permissions for a security audit and noticed on an IIS server, the folder c:\inetpub is accessible with read only rights to domain users. Knowing IIS as you do, could this default IIS folder contain any security sensitive information that should not be openly accessible, or is it pretty anonymous data that poses no real risk.

Hello Experts!

I have a Server 2008 R2 SP1 application server that hosts our ERP application.  We've been experiencing performance issues, including poor  client response and print issues from within the application.  Upon investigation, I found Event IDs 1502, 1508, 1511, and 1515 from the User Profile Service.  Troubleshooting these events lead me to find that my HKU - .DEFAULT - Software - 'Seagull Scientific' folder has grown to over 8 GB in size.  

Seagull Scientific is the maker of the print driver we use for all our label printers on the production floor.  The server in question is NOT a print server, but does utilize these printers when batch jobs run that have a print function as part of the job.

Investigating the contents of the Seagull folder showed a sub folder called 'Drivers', with muliple sub-folders within that.  The folder that is causing the bloat is labeled @CSR|JD-FS2.jd.local (JD-FS2 being our print server).  This folder is structured like so:  PRINT: - Printers - and within the Printers sub-folder are hundreds, maybe thousands, of subfolders, each named with what I think is a unique GUID.

I found a relevant article describing a condition in 2008 R2 SP 1 where registry keys get bloated because of print spooler errors in a remote desktop environment.  (KB2871131)  This is not exactly my situation, but very close.  However, it references a different key in HKU-.DEFAULT that gets bloated.

My Exchange server is having so many issues. I can access OWA, but cannot log in. It always gives an error "Your mailbox appears to be unavailable. Try to access it again in 10 seconds. If you see this error again, contact your helpdesk."
(Form Based Authentication service is running by the way).
When I checked what services are running, I see that RPC Client Access service is not running, and if I try to Start it, It doesn't.
Same goes to Transport service, it doesn't start as well. And I wonder why my server takes so much time to boot. It's mostly stuck at "Applying User Settings" and it stays for at least 15-20 minutes before I can access the server.

NOTE: This is a new server and I have installed Windows and Exchange just a few days back with only 5 to 6 users.
Any help would be much appreciated. :-(

Hello Experts. I am interested in setting up a home lab env using vmware workstation 11.0, for microsoft exchange. I would like to set it up so that i can have mailflow going to and from the internet. Im not quite sure how i can set up the network to do this. My residential isp blocks smtp. Is there another way of going about this? Do i need to register a domain and have public dns with someone like godaddy? My current env is 2 domain controllers, 1 exchange 2010 server hosting the mailbox and hub transport role, 2 servers for CAS, and 1 edge server. So i need external connection on the edge. My end goal is to migrate from exchange 2010 to 2013 then to o365 for practice. Please assist. Thanks in advance.

I have a stand along Windows 2008 Server on a small non-domain network. My Security Logs are being over run by attempted logins to 3 different account along with the accounts being locked out. I attached the Security Logs. Some trouble shooting I have tried:

I shutdown all the pcs on our network. The issue persists.
I shutdown all non Microsoft services. The issue persists.
I did a complete virus scan on my system and no issue is being found.
I shutdown my network adapter and the issue stops. Obviously not a solution as I have users that attach to shares on this server.

Any thoughts and or ideas. This is very frustrating to me and my users.

Thanks
