Hello,

We have a Windows 2008r2 server set up as a remote desktop server. The server currently has Office 2010 on it and we would like to update to Office 2016. We use Office 365 and I attempted to install, but received a message that we need a volume license. What do I have to do to get Office 2016 on here?

Thanks

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Exchange mailbox server eats 95% memory of total memory and release it to other apps as and when required

U need to ensure that you have assigned physical memory to exchange as per designed capacity

Network folder disappears after creating it as a mounted volume.  I have a MS 2K8R2 file server vm.  I map users to a directory called Department via GPO.  Users are able to see their own department folders but not other department folders due to access based enumeration.  This system has worked very well and without issue for 5 years.  The drive began to fill up.  It's limited to 2TB due to the fact that it's a vm on a VCenter5 host.  I created a new drive and "mounted volume" then moved the data for the operations department to the new drive.  The problem is that the users, intermittently, can no longer see their "Operations" department drive.  It appears some times but not others when trying to save a document to their network department drive.  Has anyone experienced this with a GPO mapped network drive to an access based enumerated mounted volume?

This appears to happen for Windows 7 clients but not Windows 10.

You may want to post this to a Windows 2008 Server topic area, as a Question.

Need to discuss with the business, high patch count still required is because of an old sharepoint server (old copy of office installed on server) and SQL on 2003 server, which should have been retired, but is still on and being used because data has not been migrated.

Also a Print Server we cannot update with 99 patches missing!

You should be able to specify permissions just on the folders they are accessing.

But if you need any further help, I would suggest you ask this as a question. You put it in as a post, so many Experts will not see it.

Huh... this reminds me that I have an old desktop in the garage that's still running 7. Good thing I haven't turned it on in months...

WannaCry... I really wanna cry... this whole thing is insane. No, I've not been infected... nor have any of my clients. And yes, it's still possible some of my, shall I say, lesser attentive clients could be infected tomorrow or at some point in the future. But this whole thing is driving me nuts. It wouldn't be a story if IT management had taken security and patching seriously. The malware uses an exploit patched two months ago. If people patched regularly, nothing would be infected. I hate to say this - largely because the policy annoys me and has seriously inconvenienced me on more than one occasion - but this is exactly why Microsoft has started forcing Windows 10 computers to patch and reboot on a monthly (or more frequent) basis.

Let me be clear - there are thousands of new threats EVERY DAY. The way you protect yourself is by being diligent about your own security and learning to use technology / implement technology in a manner that keeps it as secure as possible. Absolute security is not possible - security itself is a balance of minimizing the threat risk and minimizing the user's inconvenience. But the way to be safe - and to protect your valuable information - is to take a tiered approach and, among other things, educate yourself/your users so they understand what to look for. Implement policies that minimize access - we're not trying to suggest your administrative assistant is untrustworthy - but do they really need access to the accounting data to do their …
