Hi,

  I have a situation where my customer can not log in to W2008 server with existing password. He said it was working fine until this morning.  I know, in case of Windows 7 OS, I can boot the PC from CD and erase administrator password. But I was not sure if you can do the same in Windows Server 2008.

Thanks.

How Blockchain Is Impacting Every Industry

Blockchain expert Alex Tapscott talks to Acronis VP Frank Jablonski about this revolutionary technology and how it's making inroads into other industries and facets of everyday life.

Hi,

We are migrating our fileserver which has over 3 TB of data to a new server but would like to keep the folders and files structure with the shared and NTFS permissions and date created and modified dates. We do not want to use Robo copy because of it's limitations.

Which tool have you used migrating such a large data and keeping the folders and file structures with it's shared and ntfs permissions?

Thanks,

When the DOMAIN/ADMINISTRATOR and any other administrative accounts are used, bluetooth functions properly, but when DOMAIN/USER accounts are used, the DOMAIN/ADMINISTRATOR account has to be used to connect but the computer still doesn't stay connected on bluetooth on a continuing basis.  Is their a registry setting, gpedit.msc, secpol.msc setting on the local machine or gpmc.msc setting that can be applied to correct this problem?  Machines are Windows 10 Enterprise operating system.  AD server is Windows Server 2008.  HP laptops with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265

Guys

I've been asked to install a single SAN certificate to 22 Domain Controllers for LDAPS usage.
I've found this Microsoft link (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/931351/how-to-add-a-subject-alternative-name-to-a-secure-ldap-certificate) that gives me some information. Is this procedure correct ? Because it says I need to input the name of the DC, but I need to use an alias. The reason being, they must not reference the single DC (in case this is down, offline, etc.).

PS: I'm using an internal PKI (not third party).

Thanks for shedding some light...

Any ideas what I need to do?

Hi

I can not not ping server from workstation but from server to workstation no problem!!

Firewall on server is off and no antivirus.

When the Server starts, I can ping it after the Microsoft Corporation logo until the screen with "Aplying Computer Setings" appears. Then I get time out!

Hello,

I just saw my wsus showing windows vista for windows 10 machines. I found hotfix for WIndows server 2012R2, but our wsus is 2008 R2.

Is there any work around?

I need to retire SBS 2008, and move the data from it to new server.

Current situation:
I have SBS2008 and several other servers (2008R2, 2012) running off two HYPERV hosts.
Users use Local Workstations, Terminal Server and remote users with Notebooks.

At the moment I want to move Folder redirection (and some SHARED DATA FOLDERS) to new server.

Since this is HYPERV environment I can easily move VHDs to new server without the need to copy massive amount of data.

My plan is as follows:

1. Create two VHDs one for "FolderRedirection" and one for "SharedData". Attach them to existing SBS2008 and using some utility like ROBOCOPY or similar copy files from C drive of the SBS2008 to the two attached VHDs.

2. When above is completed - I will move/attach the VHDs to newly created server (adjust sharing and security - disable sharing on SBS2008 etc) and modify the GPO to redirect the users folders to new location.

My Question:

How do I deal with following GPO settings:

- Move the contents of the "folder" to the new location
- Redirect the folder back to the local userprofile when policy removed.

I have users which use Offline folders for the "redirected folders" and I have users that do not use offline folders (terminal server users)

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

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

I created an incoming connection on a Windows Server 2008. I can connect to the network just fine, but I can't access network resources because the network that I am on has the same ip scheme. I changed it to test my theory. If im on the road there are likely wifi networks that will have to same problem. Are there any other options other than changing the ip scheme of the target network?

I'm having a weird issue and I can't figure this out.  My client had to shut down his office due to a storm.  When we brought the servers and desktops back on line, nothing is communicating.  My first thought was the switch, however, I just replaced it and I'm still having the same issue.  I can not ping from one server to another it times out.  However, if I plug in the internet modem I can talk to the internet.  As soon as I put everything back on the switch, nothing.  This is an un-managed switch.  I'm out of ideas.

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..  I just realized I didn't have a RAS/IAS cert type issued to NPS' PEAP profile.  After doing that I now see cert's being issued to iPhone's has both server / client authentication type cert...  But.. I still get the trust warning when with the CA trusted.  Also.. My CA shows the requester to be drexel_3$ versus my username. Maybe that's normal for the NPS server (which is also the CA) is doing the requesting in behalf of the wireless client?

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 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.
