Dell R710 - PERC H700 Integrated Driver.

We formatted this server for the purpose of converting it into a Domain Controller for one of our other locations, (replacing a server that died) running Windows 2008 Server R2.

Once we installed Dell OpenManage it kept indicating that the current version (4.05.01.64) is older that the required version (4.31.1.64) of the controller, see image.

PERCH700
I already have the version 4.31.1.64 installed as you can see from the image but OpenManage isn't seeing.

C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

We live in a Windows Server 2008 environment and have a quick need for a Windows Server 2012.  Can we run one instance of 2012 on a 2008 hyper-V server?

The goal:  Copy client files/folders (and their security settings) from Server1 to Server2.  Note:  Server1 and Server2 are on the same network.

The problem:  Due to the collective size (1 TB) of data to be copied, it would take days to complete over a network connection.

Possible steps:
Part A - Goal:  Copy Server1 data to external disk drive  (Drive Letter H)
Step 1:  Attach a USB 3.0 external disk drive to Server1.  
Step 2:  Robocopy Server1 (shared folder "Clients") to external disk drive.  
Step 3:  When complete, disconnect external disk drive.

Part B - Goal:  Copy External disk drive data (Drive Letter H) to Server2
Step 4:  Attach external disk drive to Server2.  
Step 5:  Robocopy external disk drive data to Server2  (shared folder "Clients")
Step 6:  When complete, disconnect external disk drive.

I have reviewed the robocopy command here:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/robocopy

To ensure I do this correctly, I have two questions for you regarding Robocopy:
 
Question 1:  What would comprise the robocopy command line, to accomplish Step 2 (Server1 to USB drive)?  
Question 2:  What would comprise the robocopy command line, to accomplish Step 5 (USB drive to Server2)?

Thanks for your help!

Our network consists of six Windows 2008 R2 servers.  We have implemented redirected profiles using a group policy.  This works on four of the six servers - when I logon to the four on which it works, my full profile is available and works.  On the other two, however, I'm able to logon using my network credentials, but they fail to load the correct profile.  Does someone know what might be going on and what we may have done incorrectly?

Dell PowerEdge 2970 Windows 2008 R2 running three 300GB 20K SAS drives 3Gbps RAID5

I have a much newer server that is a file server for a dozen users, I want to rebuild this newer server  so I'd like to move around 4TB to this 2970 server temporarily but I'll have to add some storage. Would anyone know if these hard drives will work on this 2970 server?

We are running 2 DCs which are 2008 R2. I know we will be replacing them in the next month or so.. lol
But for now we are seeing an issue with DHCP in that there are different computers that are getting the same IP address handed to them for some reason. Nothing has really changed in the DHCP setup that has been in place for sometime now.
We are seeing this more and more frequent for some reason.
Is there something that I need to check with dhcp to stop this from occurring?

Thank you!

Our client, running MS SBS 2008 SP2 reports:

"Having a bit of trouble here. It seems the time in office PC’s is off by about 5 minutes (screenshot attached). This affects some of the development work I do. It seems this is managed on the server and I can only change it temporarily on my PC."

We have full access to his server, just want to be sure we make the correct changes.

Having a major issue trying to update Creative Accounting Suite. Update keeps failing when attempting to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 redistributable (x86). Following their troubleshooting guides I have uninstalled it, then ran update again and get the same failed notice.
I've downloaded the latest package from Microsoft and put it in the setup folder of the program as suggested, but still no joy.

This is using Veritas NetBackup 8.1.1. There are 2 master servers in veritas cluster, 4 media servers, and 2 IBM 3580 lto4 6-drivers tape library. All these 4 media controllers have the control of these tape library drives. All these 2 masters, and 4 media are setup in SuSE 11 SP4. There are 2 more media servers setup in MS Windows 2008 server, and used as the proxy to conduct VMware snapshot backup.

We don't have access to those SuSE-based servers, and only have full access to the ms windows-based servers. In daily administration, we access to the NBU admin console on these 2 MS windows media server. Recently, from the activity monitor, we found that the media4 won't conduct any backups. Instead, all these backup jobs were found either "queue up" and eventually the backup jobs fails. The message being "Media server is currently not connected to master server".

On Activity Monitor > Daemons, we ever restarted the "spoold" and "ltid", but still problem resists. What would be the root cause? How to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I've got a Remote Desktop Services Deployment, based on session hosting.

It all seems to be working, I can remote in from the gateway and everything. My RemoteApps work.

however, If I use Server Manager on the Connection Broker to review Remote Desktop Services, Overview, I get the following message:

Text
A Remote Desktop Services deployment does not exist in the server pool.
To create a deployment, run the Add Roles and Features Wizard and select the Remote Desktop Services installation option.

I'm connecting from home by Dell Netextender client software to a Win 10 laptop at my work.  When I RDP in from home it creates another windows profile ie. jsmith.CONTOSO, when I really want to log into the jsmith windows profile.  How can this be achieved?  I don't think it ever used to do this.  I did notice that there was a windows update last night and my laptop had to do a reboot.
