Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hi

Our staff have subscribed to a test website , where the students will be doing the test. When they log in to the website
they get a popup which says " A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer.

Below the windows it says : This program will open up outside of Protected Mode. Internet Explorer's Protected Mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website do not open the program."
Name: .... Plugin Name
Publisher : Company name

At the bottom gives the option of Allow and Don't allow.

I would like to allow this popup , so that it doesn't popup when user logs in. Please let me know if there is a way to sort this.

Thanks

Hi guys

I'm running the following command line in Exchange 2010 shell:

Get-Mailbox -database "Mailbox Database 0154525136" | Get-MailboxStatistics | Sort totalitemsize -desc | ft displayname, totalitemsize, itemcount | Export-CSV C:\mailboxessize.csv

However, the yellow paragraph returned is strange and stops anything being outputted. I have attached the screenshot.

Any ideas? Your help is much appreciated

Thanks

We have a number of customers that have an Underscore "_" in the server name ie vmserver_host. Microsoft now don't allow this character and some Applications are now failing Ie Arcserve UDP 6.5 Update 1.  I have resisted changing the host name for fear of breaking these production systems and have found workarounds. However since Arcserve have updated to latest Tomcat, the backups are now not working.
Are there any problems changing the host name on a server, They are running the Hyper-v role, file and storage services role  and Web server IIS role.
Most servers are running Server 2012 R2 but one is server 2008 R2.
Most of these servers have not been added to the domain and use a host file however a couple are in the domain.
I would appreciate some advise before I make the changes.

Our new server is having security issues.  I got a message that it couldn't be refreshed because event viewer service wasn't started.  I tried to start it manually and got the attached error.  I tried to change the log on permissions, but they are grayed out.

How do I fix this

I'm logged on to a new 2012 R2 server that my assistant built.  (his first)  I was trying to run a Powershell script and it failed with "access denied' to files I was trying to delete in the system32 folder.  
When I checked the security permissions there was no domain administrator in there.
I looked in users and the only user was Administrator for the computer, not the domain.

I've never seen this before.  What is wrong and how do I fix it?

Dear Experts,

Our one computer (server 2012 r2) has been having some weird issue that I have not been able to figure out. Over the last few weeks it constantly gets into a state where it'll say "online data retreival error occurred" or something like that, and we have to reboot because otherwise the xp_cmdshell in sql server always returns null instead of 0 or 1 and shadowing isn't possible. Rebooting will normally fix it. Lately, since yesterday, anytime we reboot it starts with the server explorer showing the name of our computer and the error:  "Online - Access denied."
This is the server explorer that isn't working.. I've also tried the main administrator account and mine is the domain administrator account. Neither one works. I also installed all windows updates.

I have no idea how to fix it or even how to debug it or to begin, but rebooting it is no longer doing it.
Does anyone have any ideas on what might have gone wrong?
I did run all the virus scanners we have and I disabled avg and malwarebytes to see if that would fix it and it didn't. I also saw a post that said to run some sfc /scannow thing and it said all the files were verified as good and it replaced none of them.

Thanks a bunch!
Jeffrey

Hi,

Below mentioned patches are getting failed on the server.

Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB3063109)
Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB3179574)

I have taken the below mentioned troubleshooting steps on the server but no success.

1. Visited the site and tried to install the patches but they all failed with the same error code 80073712

2. Tried to manually install the patches but failed

3. Ran sfc scan, but was not able to do so, it gave error saying Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations (scan does not start)

4. I  ran the dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth command and didn't find any corruption on the server. Please check the result mentioned below:

Hello

I have an AD (2012 R2) with an Exchange 2013.
Few days back I got a corruption on the Exchange box. It took me some time to fix it.
My problem now is that I feel that somehow the AD has been "corrupted" at some places.
Example I delete a mailbox and try to re-create I get an error, OWA gives me some errors for certain users..

My question is the following
Are there tools, set of procedures I could run to detect those problems and fix them eventually ?
Are there some diagnostics tools that can help me detect the problems and how to fix them ?

Thank you

Server 2012 R2 with Essentials role installed, had been running fine for 2 years. A couple of days ago the dashboard started crashing, basically tries to open then closes. The last updates were done on 6/14 and server was restarted, I've accessed the dashboard many times since then.

Errors in the attachment.
A tech that works with our application vendor came out to check things, he had been here for a day and a half when this happened. I've asked him to document everything he did, still waiting to hear. I do know he disabled IPV6, the firewall, removed WINS and installed Wireshark and ccCleaner. He says of course it was nothing he did that it was one of the above updates, and that even though it's been a week since those updates were installed it must've been that.
In any case I'm not going to wait around for him. I can't seem to find any documented issues with the updates. server has been rebooted a couple of times since then. I'm thinking the .Net 4.7 could be the issue, if it is related to the updates but I have not uninstalled it or any of them.
Any help is appreciated.

I'm having problems running the Best Practice Analyzer on Windows 2012 R2 server with Exchange 2016 CU4 installed. This previously used to work with no issues. I get the following errors. I've tried changing the powershell execution policy to unrestricted but it had no effect.

Errors occurred while running BPA scan on message queuing, Web server, file and storage services.

Thread failed to start

There has been a Best Practice Analyzer error for Model Id 'Microsoft/Windows/WebServer'. The Result file has not yet been generated. Please perform the scan first and try again.

Any ideas on this?

For PCI compliance and self-certification, we'd like to know if our Windows Server 2012 (not R2) Hyper-V hosts would include any memory data from hosted VMs in a memory dump file?

While we store zero cardholder data to disk, it's certainly held in volatile physical memory on the host while our storefront VMs are running.  So, in the event the host crashes and writes a dump file, would it contain any memory data from the VMs that were running at the time of the crash?

Thanks.

What Is Transaction Monitoring and who needs it?

Synthetic Transaction Monitoring that you need for the day to day, which ensures your business website keeps running optimally, and that there is no downtime to impact your customer experience.

When I open the file explorer my mapped drives and USB drives keeps disappearing and reappearing this happens constantly.  I have looked on the web for a solution but I am unable to find a solution.  If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi all,

We have a file server Windows Server 2012 and we would like a tool or script that sends weekly reports of the disk size of each folder on the File server.

Basically the file server is consuming a lot of storage and we would like to have like a dashboard.

We have a group of 2012r2 hyper-v servers, some of them in a failover cluster, some of them standalone.

I have a couple developers I want to give permission to open the hyper-v manager to restart their servers.  I have given them permissions through GPO that allows them to RDP and open hyper-v manager to manage the non-clustered hyper-v servers, but the same permissions won't work on the clustered hyper-v servers, they get an error saying they don't have permission to connect to the servers.

I have a security group called 'dev_admin', and on the OU for the hyper-v servers I have a GPO that is giving dev_admin rights for Log in Locally, log in through terminal services, and under restricted groups have put dev_admin into the remote desktop users, and Hyper-v administrators, and to test I even put them into the builtin\administrator group for local admin rights (I don't want to use this except to test, but still no joy)

BTW the iscsi SAN machine is also in the same OU, so all the servers are getting the same GPO settings.

What am I missing?

Over the past month we have built 2 Tier 2 PKI environments for our domains. One of them appears to be working correctly and the certificates from the templates are being pushed (Workstation Authentication, RDP Auth) as normal. However on our second domain this is not the case. I have setup both PKI environments for the domains exactly the same (minus the domain names) as i read through the same article for both installs. I did notice that some of my servers in the partially functioning PKI have gotten the Workstation Authentication cert, however i can only get the RDP Auth template to work if i am on a server and i put in a Certificate request. The Active Directory call comes up and when i request the RDP Auth certificate it pulls from my new PKI Environment. I'm doing a controlled decommission of the old CA (no templates present and slowly revoking certificates) but as i am not seeing the new environment push out new certificates correctly i am stalled.

On the new PKI Templates i made sure that Domain computers has Read Enroll and Auto Enroll. I also made sure that Cert Publishers on the domain has the computer that is my Subordinate Ca as a member. I also verified that in our Default Domain Policy the settings for Auto enrollment under the Security Policy is configured per Microsoft articles i have found. I did a tab by tab comparison of the working PKI to the "Non working PKI" for RDP Auth and the settings are the same.

I am not sure what else to look at now and am…

We have a Kyocera mfp with their PInpoint scan app (scan to folder). PinPoint scan cannot scan directly to a server only to a workstation. Their IT has mapped drives to the server on the workstations and they have directed the Kyocera to scan to the mapped drive on a all workstations. Each user scans to their mapped drive...ie acoounting folder... which all ends up on the Server folder..."accounting".
They are getting random memory full errors on the Kyocera but we have replaced the memory and HDD and effectively eliminated the Kyocera as the issue. As a side note, they can scan these files to email and never have an issue...which eliminates mfp memory and hdd possibilities.
Their Server is MS Server 2012.
