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

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

I noticed the C drive on my server was down to 10 GB of free space when earlier this week it was at 20 GB.  

I ran Disk Cleanup, checked every item (which totaled about 20 GB to delete).  I clicked Ok.

A window appears:  "The Disk Cleanup utility is cleaning up unnecessary files on your machine."

The window went away and I rebooted the Server.

After reboot, the amount of free space is still 1 GB, when it should be at least 30 GB.

Even my c:\Windows\Winsxs folder is 12 GB in size with the oldest file dating back to 7/13/2009.

Does it take time (after the Disk Cleanup) window disappears, to actually delete all the files discovered by Disk Cleanup?

Does Disk Cleanup really delete the files, or just moves them to the recycle bin?

Note:  The version of "cleanmgr.exe" and "cleanmgr.dll" running on the Server is 6.1.7600.16385 dated 7/13/2009.

Am I overlooking something?

I have 300 users whom intermittently use one of our rdp servers.  We recently had a couple of profiles show as corrupt, and i'd like to check the rest of the profiles for any issues.  Is there a program out there for that?  Should i just use chkdsk for that, or is there a tool which will only check on the user profiles?

Hi guys,

I got roaming profiles deployed using AD profile path. not using folder redirection.

Profile all saving in a server- network shared folder. inside the folder, for each user, it has many versions. what does it mean ? why it is creating many versions ? is it ok to delete old versions ?

For eg. for userA, there are folders like.   userA.v1 , userA.v2, userA.v3

right now drive in the server is running out of space, i need to clear some space straightaway, so is it ok to delete userA.V1 ? i mean ok to delete all versions except latest version number.

Could anyone plz help me with this.

Thank you

Hi,
I just got a general question about folder redirection.
It’s a windows 2008R2 server. Folder redirection deployed through group policy. There is no roaming profiles.

Does folder redirection means, if a user logs to different computer, he will get same files ??   Is this called folder redirection or is it roaming profiles ?

Hi,
We have are having an issue with SYSVOL replication, we believe that it is related to a couple of things:

- domain/forest functional levels were set to 2003 even though there are NO 2003 servers/DC's in the environment
- using FRS versus DFS replication as it should be

I have raised the domain/forest functional levels from "Windows Server 2003" to "Windows Server 2008"

I am now looking at migrating from FRS to DFS Replication.

It should be mentioned that both DC's are running Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2 Standard editions

Thoughts on this as I have never attempted this before...

There are two sites - both are in the same domain.
There are two domain controllers in site A - only one in site B.
The one DC in Site B has a corrupt AD database and is no longer syncing with Site A.

I will replace it with a new DC and plan to demote the old DC and then promote the new one.
I am worried about what could happen if there are any problems promoting the new DC.
With the old DC demoted at that point, would users in B still be able to log in using the DC's at Site A?
Is there something I can check first to confirm if user logins will work even with no DC on that site?

for all users roaming profiles working fine, except 3 users.  For 2 users, whenever they delete files , those files re appear again when they restart the computer.
For another user, logging to windows (welcome page ) takes around 15 mins to login and logoff takes same 15mins.
we just got roaming profiles deployed. profiles are going to network share in a 2008R2 server. we do not have folder redirection .
how do i troubleshoot this problem ? could any one help me with this plz

thanks

Hi,
A client of ours is still sitting at "Windows Server 2003" for both the "domain and forest" functional levels. They only have 1 x 2008 member server with the rest of the member servers being Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2 editions.

We are having SYSVOL replication issues (I believe that it is still trying to use FRS versus using DFS Replication as it should be. We are also having DNS issues that we believe may be related to this as well.

I want to raise both the domain and forest functional levels, is there a specific order that these need to be done in? Is there a reboot of any kind required? Services that need to be restarted?

I haven't done this in several years so any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

I am running windows 7, 10, 2K8R2, 2K12R2, 2k16 OS's, and I found a few of the KB's that address and update the new CPU flaws, but is there a website that lists all of the KB articles for the OS's I mentioned?
I did some searching, but didn't come up with anything good.

if the everyone group has full control at both the share and directory level on a windows server file share, but subdirectories on the share are more restrictive. without access to rdp onto the server itself, is there anyway a member of everyone could get access to the more restricted sub directories on which they are not on the ACL through standard tools such as powershell or windows explorer

I have a domain server running Windows Server 2008 R2, Service Pack 1.  From a client running Windows 10, I try to log in to The Client itself as Administrator using DomainName\Administrator and then typing in the password.

I get we cant sign you in with your credentials because your domain isn't available.  I just logged into the Domain Server with these credentials so I know they are correct.

Please help,

I am trying to delete a folder that has about 1 million files in it.  It is a Windows Server 2008.  It is a temporary folder containing small XML files that were I guess downloaded when a SQL Server Job was being executed that imported data from an XML Feed.

The problem is that I try deleting the files via command prompt and it just doesn't work.  I think it ends up hanging due to enumerating the files.  I am not sure how to delete all of the files without enumerating.

Any help would be appreciated!

We are currently running RDP on a Windows 2008 server.  Some of our users are utilizing generic accounts to access the systems then using a RemoteApp to access our primary software.

The issue we are running into is that our software has some issues and frequently we have to reset the sessions for users.  Now i have used the below script for users who are accessing from their own desk / login and it has worked wonderfully.  The problem I have is if I cannot query the session by UserName I am unable to return the right Session Name or Session ID.  This does not work for users in areas that use generic logins into the computer.

Now I will be the first to state that the shared/generic login is poor practice and needs to go, that is something I am working on but it taking time to get these changes in place.  

What I am trying to do is identify the Session Name or Session ID for the current connection from the computer the file is being ran from.  I have found a couple of things that look at registry but that has not been working.  In layman terms I want to be able to run a bat file that look at my current outbound connection to ServerName and reset it or reset all if there are multiple.  Is this possible in any way?  

Bat file I am using currently:
SET RDP_SESSION=''
echo Current RDP Session ID: %RDP_SESSION%
for /f "tokens=1 delims= " %%G in ('query session %username% /server:ServerName') do SET RDP_SESSION=%%G
reset session %RDP_SESSION% /server:ServerName /v

If I remember in Windows 2000, we used to grant Write permissions to end users on a Folder, example Fold1. This will give them the capability to create new folders and files under Fold1. This will prevent them to delete files and folders that have been created by other users. it will also prevent them from copying or moving a folder create by other users to different location.

I am not sure why in the newer files systems version, when I gave user write permissions to a folder, they could not create anything inside the folder.

Any help ?

Thank you

Hello everyone,
I am having a strange issue.  I have created a test document to verify DFS replication between two servers and to my shock it did not replicate and I also see that the files are not matching up.  I have tried the following:

I looked in Event Viewer and could not find any recent errors
I successfully verify the topology
I created a diagnostic report and no errors were found

It seems that all of the tools that I have at my disposal are saying that everything is working fine, but the files are not replicating.  Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions or if more information is needed.

Thank you!!!

I had this question after viewing how to replace a domain controller and keep the computer name and IP the same.

From that question's accepted solution:

Here is a step by step.
http://blog.zwiegnet.com/windows-server/migrate-server-2003-to-2008r2-active-directory-and-fsmo-roles/

I would create the DC as another name then once you have removed the old DC from the Forest or demoted to a member server you can then do the rename and re-ip.


Since you indicate this is a software requirement, you should indicate there will be a minimal amount on downtime with the rehome and rename but that should be pretty straightforward since it is a single DC environment.

Rename DC

Is there a step by step guide since that initial link is not working now?
