hi guys

We have an Exchange 2010 environment. We have Room Mailbox's set up for our meeting rooms. However, we would like people to be able to see the calendars for these meeting rooms and just be able to book it by themselves. At the moment, it is all going through our receptionist which is annoying for them.

We have set up the Room Mailbox's and given full permissions to people. Is that enough?

Thanks for helping

got roaming profiles configured with the profile path in AD for each user account.
works fine for all users except 1. if user deletes a files from desktop. it reappears after restart.  i posted same question here before. got some great help from you guys and re created the profile . it seemed to be fixed but not completely.

now the problem is , if i delete a file and logoff and logon. its working fine.
if i delete file and restart without logging off, its re appearing ! any help ? sorry guys to post similar questions . guess restarting not syncing with server, while logoff syncs perfectly.

Hello,

On many physical servers with different make (Fujitsu, IBM, HP) and with different OS (Windows Server 2K8R2 - W2K12R2) EMC networker base backup fails with error in events something like:
Volume Shadow Copy Warning: VSS spent 0x0000000000000028 seconds trying to flush and hold the volume \\?\Volume{cd4a4af1-2589-4872-9a94-7038f7c2c8df}\.  This might cause problems when other volumes in the shadow-copy set timeout waiting for the release-writes phase, and it can cause the shadow-copy creation to fail.  Trying again when disk activity is lower may solve this problem.

However if same Full Backup, File/Folder level backup, System State, Bare Metal backup from Windows Backup tool works fine without any issues.

Anyone can suggest, if any idea on how to fix this?

Best Regards,
Gurucharan Nayak H

A Windows Server 2008 R2 installation has been infected with a Trojan horse that has encrypted files with the *.rapid extension.  The server had Avast for Business installed.  An AVG rescue CD was made and ran multiple times to eliminate instances of the Trojan horse.  After four times, the server is labeled clean from the AVG rescue CD.  I then uploaded two *.rapid files to nomoreransom.org and it came back saying that there was no fix for this.  Does anybody know of a trusted decryption software that can correct this problem?  I can attach a file if requested.

Hi, guess i been posting multiple questions lately regarding roaming profiles. got one more to it.

 i got roaming profiles deployed using the profile path in AD in server 2008R2

just for one user, the logoff takes 15mins and logoff takes another 15mins.

i did some work, found her profile is about 15GB. issue might be , every time when she tries to login, its taking time to set up profile. and when logoff its trying to sync to server.

how do i solve this time issue? is it something should i ask her to move files to different location or any other way to make  logon/off faster ?

Im trying to remove SHA1 across my domain.  I have a Server 2008 SP2 box but it only has MD5 and SHA hashes, no SHA256.  Is there an update that installs support for SHA2 hashes?  Server 2008 R2 are fine.

Hi,
I setup a MAC user to use VPN for accessing company file shares. She was able to do this fine when she was in London.
She's traveled to Australia and tried VPN there. The VPN connects fine but she cannot access the file shares. Her accounts are all fine.
They try to connect but fail. The file shares are using the UNC path but with the IP address so example - \\ipaddress\sharename
Is it because the connection to the file shares is timing out due to the distance?
Can I increase the timeout settings on a MAC for accessing network shares

Hi,

one of our domain controller is having memory and CPU utilization issue. We tried running Procmon and Data collector set to identify the issue.

Is there a way in Powershell that a script will automatically trigger data collector set on that DC once a threshold limit is reached for CPU or memory?.

I was tasked to install programs on a VM that will be our new RDS (aka Terminal Server). Its a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise VM.

I installed Office 2016 but any time I try to open, remove, do anything with the program I get...

"The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I've tried several things I have found including updating Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable which would only install 2010. Installing 2015 or 2017 fails. Uninstalling the Office via command line also did not work.

Before we recreate this VM I wanted to see if anyone has experienced this issue before and has a resolution as I feel like attempting to install Office again will result in the same issue.

Thank you.

Hi all,

I am trying to install KB4025872 onto a Server 2008 SP2 VM. Nessus has indicated that the version of 'System.Management.Automation.dll' is out of date and that this is the required KB to install.

Frustratingly I get the message "The update does not apply to your system". I have confirmed I am on the latest service pack, downloaded the correct architecture (64 bit O/S), other updates apply without issue, I am an administrator.

KB4025872 does not appear to have been superseded or have a pre-requisite, so I am at a loss.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Is there a patch to enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support for Server 2008 x86?  KB3080079 works fine on Windows 7 x86 and x64 and Server 2008 x64, but not x86.

I want to disable TLS 1.0 on my x86 servers, but it breaks RDP unless you install KB3080079.

Hi Guys,

I am having this issue where i have added a new machine to the domain and setup a share, but none of the users on the domain can access it, even though i have set the permissions to "everyone" however i think its only setup to "everyone" on the local machine.

When i try to browse to set it to the domain it doesnt show anything.

I am trying to get a smtp relay that I set up on a windows 2008 r2 server to work, and not having luck.  Installation went fine, it is the actual configuration of the relay parameters that may be my issue.  This relay is to be used by internal IoT devices for notifications, etc, outbound only. Destination is smtp port on hosted Exchange server offered by mail provider.

I'm attempting to use TLS encryption, with account login for the destination smtp server.  Most of the settings are pretty straightforward, but the section on domain information is not clear to me, as this is an internal server xxx.local.

Anyone out there familiar with this scenario?

There is a possibility that my mail provider is not accepting my mail, but I don't have any way of knowing for sure where I stand. Just know that these mail tests from one of the devices is not going out.

Thanks!

Transaction-level recovery for Oracle database

Transaction-level recovery for Oracle database

Veeam Explore for Oracle delivers low RTOs and RPOs with agentless transaction log backup and transaction-level recovery of Oracle databases. You can restore the database to a precise point in time, even to a specific transaction.

I have inherited a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V cluster.  The hosts are running full GUI Windows.  The hosts are using DAS with SAS interface (To be clear).  On the Hyper-V cluster are 2 Windows 2008 R2 servers in a cluster (Yes an upgrade is on the schedule).  I am having an issue configuring a Quorum disk for the Windows 2008 cluster.  On each of the hosts there is the same LUN connected from the DAS and it is offline.  That disk has been assigned to each of the Windows 2008 R2 servers.  On 1 of the VMs the disk is offline and on the other it is online.  When I go into the cluster manager in Windows 2008 R2 where the disk is online and try to add clustered storage non is found.

Correct me if I am wrong, but if the Quorum LUN from the DAS is not assigned to the hosts then I cannot assign it to the VMs??

What am I doing wrong???

I am trying to get Folder redirection working on my network. I have created the GPO and applied it to my test workstations OU. When I log onto the my Windows 10 test box everything seems to be fine with the exception for my documents folder. When I look at the path for the Documents folder it shows the same path as my home  folder. I'm not sure what I'm missing but was wondering if someone could help me.

FYI
My primary domain controller is Windows 2008 R2 while the other 3 domain controllers are Windows Server 2012.
