Hi,

We have an internal windows active directory domain called Catfood.com. We also have an external website called the same Catfood.com but it is hosted on an external cloud provider.

We have created a website on the cloud called gifts.catfood.com. This uses dynamic DNS.

I want to forward all DNS queries for gifts.catfood.com to an external DNS server.

How do I do this?

We are using windows server 2008 (but the domain functional level is windows 2003)

Thanks,

I have an SCCM 2007 environment with over 100 DPs running Windows 2008R2. I have a disk space problem whereby my C drive is getting full and now need to send more packages to the DPs. I want to add an additional TB drive to the DPs and mount it. The next step would be to move the SMSPKG and SMSPKGC$ folders(as in the attached file) to the 1TB drive (mount drive called Tier2Data)  to create more space on C.

1. How can I achieve this so that the move is "global", ie the folders are moved to the mounted drive across all the DPs in the environment?
2. What impact if any could arise if I do this?
3. Can I make this the default setup for the folders going forward for the new DP s to be added in the environment?

Thanks

We are currently upgrading a network to a 2016 Terminal services environment. There are some legacy applications that is not compatible with 2012 or 2016 and needing to keep some applications on a 2008 R2 machine.

We've attempted to add the session host from the 2016 wizard as the server does appear to be discovered. There is a compatibility message mentioning that it must be running at least Windows Server 2016.

Wondering if anyone has been able to get a 2008 server added and running in a 2016 farm so the apps can be published? Or have some alternative solutions?

Thanks,

When I try to setup permissions on one clients server and add a user to a security group that is for a certain  share or folder
the user still cannot access the share. Even giving the user modify or full rights not recommended just for testing.
What could cause this? Could there be a policy stopping this? I get no popups or errors.

If I purchase a VL of Server 2016 Standard will it include downgrade rights for Server 2008 R2?
I think the answer is yes.
More importantly, once I register it with VLSC, will VLSC give me a 2008 R2 download link and an actual 2008 R2 key?

I know downgrade rights usually go back forever but using the new key rather than reusing an old key in important to me...for some reason.

I was thinking the VLSC gave you keys up to 2 versions back, but wasn't sure if the  2012 and 2012R2 counted as the two versions back, or if I could get a key going all the way back to Server 2008.

Ransomware-A Revenue Bonanza for Service Providers

Ransomware – malware that gets on your customers’ computers, encrypts their data, and extorts a hefty ransom for the decryption keys – is a surging new threat.  The purpose of this eBook is to educate the reader about ransomware attacks.

Some, but not all images. No idea why that is. Anyway, I need to have Outlook download images from a certain domain, and it's not. Ive tracked it down to IE ESC. I turn it off, images appear. I turn it back on, no images.

I need IE ESC because all users are logged in via TS and I dont want them clicking links in their email (also on TS) or surfing the web. They do that from their thin client. If they need to go to an email link, they copy the link and paste it into their thin client browser.

Hi,
This problem is regarding Terminal Server connectivity (Remote Desktop Connectivity as per window server 2008). We have
following working scenario :

Architecture : Client-Server
Server : Dell T430 PowerEdge
Server OS : Windows Server 2008 R2(Standard Edition)
Terminals : Wyse S10 thin clients firmware version 6.1.0_08, 6.5.0_22 and 6.5.0_40

Recently we've shifted to a new server DELL PowerEdge T430 from DELL PowerEdge 2900. The thin clients used to connect

successfully to the old one. After the shifting process, the thin clients worked fine for about 1.5 months but suddenly today

afternoon they stopped connecting to the server all of a sudden.

Not able to figure out as to what exactly stopped the working terminals.

Thanks.

A couple of months ago I corrected a  time error of about 6 minutes on a domain controller and caused all of the workstation clients to flag the server as dodgy and they show as Unathenticated.  I have to set everything to use "Private" network.  It's still usable, but things like domain policies and so on no longer work.

I have variously tried kludging the registry, deleting and redetecting the network cards in the workstations, deleting the DHCP entries, deleting and then reccreating the workstation object on the domain and anything else I could think of.  Aside from the fact that I find lots of other users on the internet with similar problems I haven't found a solution.  Is there one?

Hi,
We're rolling out Windows 10 Pro for our users and I'm having an issue with printer(s) re-installing after deleting the roaming profile. Profiles are stored on a windows server 2012 R2 file server and our laptop has windows 10 pro OS.

It's been our practice that when a user gets a corrupt profile we delete/renamed (old_profile.v6) the profile on the server and on the local client so when a user login to a client it will create a fresh profile on the server and locally in the client.

With Windows 7 Pro when I delete the profile (server and client) nothing is retain everything is fresh and with windows 10 Pro after I delete the profile (server and client) the printer installed on the user profile come back.

Is there a setting or something that I need to change in windows 10 pro so when I delete the user profile on the server and client nothing is retained and the profile created is a fresh copy?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi,

we have a VM running Exchange 2010 on Server 2008. The July updates went on this morning and over the day the VM keeps freezing - no blue screen or reboot.
We can connect to it via ESX console and its just frozen (at logon screen or with whatever we had open).
Only solution is to reboot and then it's fine again for a few hours (no set time but 4 or 5 hours at most).
Can't find anything in the event log. Server working fine and then just freezes.

VM been in place with no issues for 4 years or so.

We're pulling the updates back off it now but hoping someone else maybe seeing similar? Feels like it has to be the updates.

Command line to Force  NTFS permissions inheritance

I have a folder named Test.
Domain Admins Group own the folder and gave user User1 Modify Permissions then unchecked "Delete" permissions, so that user1 cannot delete the Test folder.

Well, user 1 is able to create folders and subfolders and files under Test folder, however he is also able to take ownership of the folders/subfolders and files and remove the inherited permissions.

This caused a problem for Domain Admins group unable to browse through subfolders under Test, also when Domain Admins group try to  copy the whole Test folder with its subfolders they get access denied.

I have been trying using Icacls to force inheritance from Test Folder to all subfolders and files under Test folder, but could not be successful, either I get access denied or the command is wrong.....

Any Expert to help on this ?

Thank you

Hi All,

We got a problem with Windows Installer Service.

Windows Server 2008 r2 ver 7601
Msiexec 5.0.7601.18896
Fully updated.

Service is not starting “Error 1053 The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion” – tried to change registry.

We find out about that issue when client requested help with updating their dental software.
Software failed with the error that it can’t progress with the installation as it found some issues with windows installer service.
We tried to install other software and it did not even start.

Other things we tried was:
-fixing the registry with msirepair file from one the the KB’s.
-unregistered and registered the service
-point registry to run msiexec from syswow64/msiexec.exe
-sfc – that did not finish successfully and I can post the results in here if required
-even transferred other msiexec files from other same os version server and it was same.

We probably tried some other things which I can’t remember at the moment.

Any ideas?
