I'm using the authentication method PEAP with my NPS server.  This being for my WLAN clients so I can utilize certificate based authentication via AD users/groups.  Now..  What type of SSL cert do I issue to the PEAP authentication method?  I currently have one issued from my Microsoft local CA.  It's a Server Authentication SHA-2 cert...  The reason I ask is this...

I get trust messages on my iPhones...  I even get these after installing the root CA cert of my Microsoft local CA.  Whenever the iphone wireless client joins they get a trust message..  Regardless of my already having the root CA as being trusted..  One thing I just noticed.. It's issuing certs attended for 'server authentication' versus 'client authentication'.  Is that okay?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

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.

I have a client who wants us to set up a control that will prevent one of their computers from being able to be used if removed from the building. My thought is that the simplest way to accomplish this would be to prevent login if it is unable to contact the DC. However, I'm unsure if this is possible or how it would be accomplished.

hi guys

We have an Exchange 2010 environment. I want to set a temporary password for someone so that they can set one for themselves. So I have done so and set the check box to 'user must change password at next logon' in AD. They will be external so the only way they can access our emails will be via OWA.

But when I go to OWA and put the temporary password in and their username, it does not prompt them to enter a new one?! This has been happening for anybody I create recently. I wonder if Exchange just needs a reboot?

Any ideas why?
Thanks for helping

Hello,
Did someone succeed in installing MS Project Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008 x86 or x64?
Which SQL Server version is required for SharePoint Services 3.0?
Could someone provide me with the reference, where to get step by step installation and configuration guide?
I need exactly Project Server 2007, not 2010 or newer.
Thank you in advance,

Under a shared folder, is it possible to make this path...

\\server\share\folder_1\data\

appear to the user like this path?

\\server\share\data\

I have attempted to use Traverse Folder alone on "folder_1", but this doesn't work. List Folders is required, but then "folder_1" becomes visible.

Thank you

Hello Experts,
In a Windows Service program, I am trying to delete a file.  It works fine in my machine.  For example if the file is found, my program  deletes it and if the file not found, I get exception.  Same program when copied to production, neither the file gets deleted, not do I get any exception.  I am sure it goes to delete portion of the method.  Because I tested it with log4net.  FYI, in development I am using Windows 7 Pro and in Production Windows Server 2008 R2.  Any idea?  Below is my code.  Please help.

Thank you in advance.


public void DeletePMTFile()
        {
            string fullName = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["FULL_NAME"];
            string filePath = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["FILE_PATH"];
            var reader = new StreamReader(fullName);
            reader.Close();

            FileInfo fileName = new FileInfo(fullName);
            if (File.Exists(fullName))
            {
                try
                {
                    Array.ForEach(Directory.GetFiles(filePath), File.Delete);
                }
                catch (System.IO.IOException e)
                {
                    log.Error("DeletePMTFile: Error while deleting the file" + e.Message);
                    return;
                }
            }
            else
            {
                log.Warn("DeletePMTFile: " + filePath.Trim() + " not found");
            }
        }

Hi,
we have a planned maintenance for our production environment (WINDOWS SERVER 2008 R2) scheduled in a weeks time from the time of this post. Windows cluster is configured for two nodes on an ACTIVE/PASSIVE basis. Going by the company planned maintenance policies all nodes are expected to be shutdown . Oracle database 11gR2 is running on the primary node. Kindly advise on the best procedure to shutdown and startup the cluster after maintenance is completed.

Also do i shutdown the database manually through the 'SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE' command?

Kind regards.

We are working with a customer that wants to use their SSO to access our web server. I have never worked with SSO before and am lost as to what we need to do to get this accomplished. Server is on a 2008R2 server with IIS 7.5. Current logins for the web page are not domain accessed.

We do not want to have to set up a trust with the company in question and they do not want to set up the trust either.

How would I go about getting this accomplished?

Any help/information would be greatly appreciated.

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 !

Dear Experts,

I can not restore full bare metal image backup from my old Windows Server to new Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

There are 4 disks in my old Windows Server

Disk 0 and Disk 1 are Basic

Disk 2 and Disk 3 are Dynamic

And there are 2 disks in my new Windows Server and i want to backup bare metal but i can not select disk during backing up becuase my pagefile is standing on Disk 2 and i can not change it to disk 0 or disk 1 becuase it run out of space. Do you have any solutions how to backup full bare metal but i want to restore only drive C?


Thanks,

Hey Guys

I have a SBS 2011 server - from all workstations and even on the server itself - if i clicked a shared folder - it takes a like a minute for it to open. I see the progress bar moving, just really slow.

I checked task manager - memory and cpu usage are fine, on the server itself, opening regular folders and apps open fine, its just the shared folders, any thoughts??

Primary server is Windows 2008R2 and the secondary server is Windows 2012r2.    I have an app that uses both servers and they show the hits per server and I am trying to figure out why the primary is being hit so much more than the secondary.   I also need to know if that is a problem.   When I reboot the primary server then most people cannot even login until it comes back up.  

Is this normal or could I have setup something wrong on the secondary server?

On a server which has been working for roughly two years, we are suddenly unable to send faxes. There was an issue recently which resulted in my having to empty the queue folders and remove and reinstall all the fax modems.

Stations attempting to send a fax see the error "Unable to retrieve cover pages associated with the selected account".

If I remove the account and attempt to add it again, I get "You do not have security permissions to complete this operation"

Server os is 2008r2. Stations are all Windows 7 Pro. Updates on both are fairly current.

I've already gone through the (very few) discussion threads I found out on the web that appeared to be relevant. All the permissions for folders, services, and the fax services themselves appear to be correct as far as I can tell. I'm not seeing anything in the event logs on server or stations that appear relevant.

On the server itself, I am able to create an account in Windows Fax & Scan without issue. On the stations I am able to connect directly to the fax "printer" (which doesn't really do anything but show access permissions to the device itself, of course)

I have a standalone root CA, windows 2008 R2, which issues SHA-1 certificates.  The Root certificate is coming up on expiring, and I would like to renew this and upgrade to SHA-2.  Reading through several Technet articles, and trying to make heads or tails of the process.  From what I gather, since this is a Win2008 R2 server (CA), issuing SHA-1, I cannot upgrade to SHA-2?  Does the server OS need to be Windows 2012 (R2) in order to issue the SHA-2 certs?  Trying to find information regarding the OS requirements for the CA to issue SHA-2 certificates.
Thank you,

We have a client who migrated to a new server. For a while the old server was kept on site, just powered off as it was. The old server was the Domain Controller for Domain1, exchange and file server.

The new server is the domain controller for Domain1, and file server.

Recently a user onsite who has taken on the task of being the onsite IT guy, has powered on the old server and logged back in to it whilst it was connected to the same network as the current server.

We now get the error message shown on screenshot attached, I am guessing that Group Policy has detected that another domain controller for Domain1 is live on the network and does not know where to point?

Before we were told about the error message the old server has been wiped.

Now I am concerned we are going to face issues with GP if we remove the domain from the console as it is the same domain name that is currently being used in the company?

Can anyone advise?

Current Server OS Windows 2008 R2 Standard.

I am trying to set the Automatic Configuration Script in a new GPO.  The problem is that when I deploy .  The GPO Servers are both 2008 R2 and dont have IE10 capability.  But I do have a 2012 server (not DC) that does have the IE10 GPO capability, and this si where i am writing the GPO object.

I have created a separate Test OU and put my users account in that OU and applied the IE11 GPO.  It did the gupdate /force and restarted my workstation.  But the GPO just didnt apply.  I then enfoced it, so it should overwrite any other IE settings that may have been set in any inherited GPOs.  Again, i forced the update and restarted, but it still doesn't apply.

I just cant figure out why it wont apply.  

Is it because the server I am writing the GPO on isnt a DC or GP Server?  I dont think so.
Is it because my domain functional level is 2008?  I dont think so.

Hi,

Before I started to upgrade my older ESXi server from v5.5u1 into the latest v6.5u1, I reckon I must do the VCenter upgrade first.

I’d like to perform VMware VCenter server migration from:

Physical box
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows vCenter Server 6.0 Update 1b
SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Database – 750 GB size

Into the latest edition of  VMware VCenter Server appliance vCenter Server 6.5 Update 1.

My question is:

1.      How can I perform the migration of the dvSwitch to the Virtual Appliance during the business hours with no downtime ?
2.      Does the VCSA capable to handle the large SQL server database size or does the conversion time will be very long due to its size ?
3.      CBT will be reset hence all VM image backup with Veeam will be running again from full backup not incremental ? How to prevent this issue ?
