How do you allow for users to use their own choice of default printer on Microsoft Terminal Server/ Windows 2008 r2?
I don't have a GPO forcing any policy for it and the Registry keeps forcing Uniprint to be the primary printer.

Has anyone come across an issue where Loopback-Enabled Computer/User Policies are preventing regular User Policies from being applied?

I am in a situation where a simple Loopback-Enabled policy that controls folder redirection for my Citrix XenApp servers is preventing a users regular policies (i.e. drive mappings) from being applied.

I would like to change the old directory and its contents on the server to read only to prevent all users to modify it because I have already moved all contents to new location. I just want to change the old directory to read only in case some one would like to refer the old contents. May I know how can I do it?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Server 2008, 4 users connect via Remote Desktop and run a piece of accounting software.  3 users have run it no problem for the past 5 years.  Added a new user, same group membership as others.  Whenever user #4 tries to run the accounting software, she is presented with an administrator login box in order to be allowed to run the software.

I can find no differences between the users.  Fundamentally, what do I look for in order to eliminate this administrator prompt?

Server 2008 R2 slow for 7 days...now back to normal.  Any thoughts?  I've been accessing the server at a crawl since last week.  Restarted it and ran maintenance and performed Windows Updates, cleared temp files, moved Timeslips off of it, paused online backup, ran virus checks.  It became fairly useable over the weekend, but not normal speed.  Today it is perfect again.  Any thoughts?  It never failed or became inaccessible remotely, but it became nearly unusable because of extremely long response times and waits for file shares.  Now it's as if nothing happened.  If users hadn't complained and I hadn't been watching it with one eye for a week, I wouldn't even know anything occurred.

One of our clients is having an issue on their domain where a few users are regularly being locked out. The accounts are unlocked with no intervention by an administrator less than 10 minutes later. The account lockout policy is set to 50 failed attempts in 10 minutes, with the account automatically unlocked in 10 minutes. This does not effect every user in the AD, but those who are affected are saying it happens at least once per day. At first we thought it might be an open RDP port, but that is currently closed. Additionally, the Event Viewer shows the event for locking out each user, but not the event for the account being unlocked. Any ideas on why this would be happening?

Hi guys,
Just a general question on website hosting and registering.

I know it’s 2 sepeRate parts. Website registered with one person and hosted in another place.

Where can I find my dns management console ? Will it be with register or hosting side ?
And when I look for name servers, I points to Microssoft name servers. Does it mean it’s Microsoft hosting my website ?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

We've been using our last physical server as an iSCSI host.  Recently, this server has started crashing when the iSCSI storage device is connected.  (We had the iSCSI connections connected to one of the VMs, but the performance was poor).  

Can someone point me where to look for details as to what is going on with this server (which error logs would we look at)?  Has anyone else experienced a similar issue and might have some insights?
Thanks!

Remote desktop auto start session on VMHorizon DASS

Hello all-

I am working on setting up Remote Desktop Services for use by some of my remote users. The VMhorizon dass station are all windows server 2008, joined to the domain. The remote users will login to the Dass workstation using their domain login, then automatically launch a  RDP session to the workstation assign in their office.
Is there a way that when the user logs into the local workstation, it will start the RDP session right away and pass their username/password through. any help would greatly appreciated.


Thanks

So could you guys help me in finding whAts wrong on server side ? Or any other idea

Hi Team,
I have a project that involves moving my secondary domain controller to a cloud environment on a different not-NATed subnet. Unfortunately, in the process of doing a bare metal copy using VEEAM Agent, my DC02 came up malfunctioning, As a result of tweaking and ruminating it seemed easier to just bring the local copy of DC02 back online. My plan now is to just build a new third domain controller (DC03) and decommission the second one. My post is mostly for the sake of gathering thoughts, advice, and little-known information when it comes to setting up a new DC as this will be my first rodeo.

My current setup (IP addresses are used as an example):
DC01 (192.168.10.100) - Primary DC (AD, DNS, DHCP, Certs) on 2008 r2 on a physical device.
DC02 (192.168.10.101) - Secondary replicated AD and DNS on 2008 r2 in vSphere on an ESXi host.
DC03 (192.168.20.103) - My third DC will be built in a vCloud Director environment, likely running Server 2012 or 2016. This device will also be in a different subnet, Routes have already been established and the machines that are currently there all work correctly with the devices in my local subnet.

Are there any issues replicating AD and DNS from 2008 r2 to 2012 or 2016? Would I be better off just building a 2008 r2 machine in my VCD environment, or perhaps upgrading my primary from 2008 r2 to 2012 or 2016?

What is the industry standard for setting up and configuring a third DC and then decommissioning the secondary, such as in…
