I have a 2008r2 enterprise server running terminal services in a 2008 Domain. I'd like to set an inactivity log off timer for an hour and exclude certain users in the domain. I'm a little lost and need some help.

Thanks,

I have a Server2008 standard that wont boot into Windows.  It says hal.dll is missing, however, i think the issue is bigger than that.  When I insert the 2008 standard cd and run repair it says it cant find any disks, same if i go to command prompt and use diskpart list disk or list volume.

If I put a 2008 R2 disk in and run the install it sees the C drive that has two partitions on it.  So the disk are there, the data is still there.

I tried to reinstall the drivers, but they couldnt be found either on the install media or the installed os on the server.

Ant ideas?

Our current XenApp shared desktop (on XenApp 7.13) is running on Windows Server 2008 R2. Our HP T5565 thin clients create a desktop session, then when the user leaves their desk for 10 mins, the 'Turn off the display after 10 mins' setting on the HP device kicks in, and the screen powers down as normal. Then when they return and move the mouse, the screen wakes up. Great.

Now, I've recently built a Windows Server 2016 shared desktop (on XenApp 7.15), and we connect using the same thin client devices. When the users leaves the desk, the screen powers down as normal, however when they return and move their mouse, it's as if not all of the screen wakes up. Sometimes they get a solid screen of only grey (where you can still see the outline of the password box). This happens almost every time, but when it does, the grey is sometimes on the whole display and sometimes in patches. After entering the password to unlock the screen, sometimes it'll have half or a corner of the screen still grey, and you have to make an Explorer window full screen on top of the greyness to get rid of it.

Please see screenshot for an example of what I mean. In this example, they've just unlocked the screen and found their desktop looking like this.

If I remove the 'Turn off the display after 10 mins' setting then the problem will go away. However this is not an option for us due to the extra power drain.

Besides, it's not just a screen power down that causes this though. If an user does a …

I am working on a 2008 R2 domain and am having an issue with DNS.  We have three DC/DNS servers, two in Iowa and one in South Carolina.  Running BPA on each reports, "DNS: The DNS server <ip address> one Local Area Connection must resolve the name of this computer."  Double-clicking the error, it shows the Issue:  The DNS server <ipaddress> on Local Area Connection did not successfully resolve the name of the address (A) record for this computer."  I have verified that the (A) records all exist.  Each server's NIC does include it's own IP address in DNS, but not as the first DNS server.  Removing server IP address and re-running BPA, it gives the warning, "Local Area Connection on the target computer that is a DNS server does not have its own IP addresses in the list of DNS servers," and logically does not give the error.  The servers all have IPv6 enabled.   If I add the IPv6 Address to DNS for the NIC's IPv6 configuration, I get the same error regarding "resolve the name of this computer" along with a number of other IPv6 related errors.

I have tried numerous things found online, but to no avail.  What am I missing?  I would greatly appreciate any guidance and suggestions.

Hi peeps

Is there a way of grabbing the configurations of a Windows 7 machine and then somehow having all of the applications and configurations made to that machine exported into a virtual terminal services server (on 2008R2 or 2012 depending on application compatibility) so that when you log onto that TS server it has the same applications/configs as the Windows 7 machine?

Is the easiest way for me to use something like Acronis to clone the application sections? Or is something like this possible using Vmware products?

I have Vmware Esxi 5.5 running on our infrastructure.

Thanks for helping

hi guys

I've got a WYSE thin client terminal. To the back of this terminal is attached a USB Skorpio scanner. On the device manager of this thin client I can see the scanner on there.

I'm using RDP on the thin client to connect to a virtual machine on our network. I would like this USB Skorpio scanner to get picked up. It isn't at the moment and I don't know whether I am supposed to do anything? I was told this WYSE thin client supports USB passthrough.

Any ideas on any changes I have to make on the virtual machine?

Thanks for helping

Our default domain controller policy has the "Audit Directory Service Access" enabled and log all success events for group EVERYONE.

We have some missing production DNS records. Exactly where do I look in the event log and what event I can look for in order to determine who removed the DNS records?

Someone who knows please advise.

Hi All,

I planning to perform an upgrade of our DC that's currently a Server 2008 R2 running ADFS to Server 2012 R2.

ADFS has a few RPT  configured including O365, along with a SMTP virtual server running on IIS6.0 with quite a bit of rules configured.

I am curious as to what the impact would be to ADFS and the IIS6.0 virtual SMTP server.

ADFS environment

2.0 (runs on DC)    

Proxy server 2.0 (runs on server on DMZ network)

Will I need to upgrade the proxy at the same time as the DC that runs 2.0?

Or can I function with ADFS 3.0 and an ADFS 2.0 proxy?

I have many users using remote desktop to connect to a server for our accounting system.  I user logs in and the screen resolution is not adequate for them and they would like the icons and text to be larger.  Is there anyway to allow 1 user of remote desktop to have different resolution settings or will this affect all users?

I need to create a powershell script to get all the roles on all the servers in a domain. there are 109 servers. I’m trying to get the script to create a separate csv for each server with its roles. so far I can get the script to either list all the roles on top of each other in 1 massive csv file or I can get it to create either blank csv files for each server or it will create csv’s with data that I have no idea where it came from. Here is my script:

Get-Content c:\servers.txt | Foreach-Object {{ Get-WindowsFeature Get-ADcomputer -filter * -properties "Name" $_ } | Export-Csv -Path "c:\$($_)_roles.csv" -notype}

Open in new window


I have a list of all the servers in a txt on the drive root. This script has to be able to function on a 2008 r2 box. Where am I going wrong?

I've taken over an account that has a SBS2011 (2008 R2) OS and when I checked on the Windows update status, I learned that the Windows Update feature was corrupt.  When I resolved this issue, I learned that 98 updates need to be applied.  The server is a production server and has been installed since 2013.

I've not experienced this number of updates on a peroduction server and am concerned if I just throw the update switch and let it run... I could experience bigger problems.

If anyone has experienced this before and, what is the best/safest way to approach this challenge?

Thanks, in advance, for your consideration.
