Windows Server 2012 is the server version of Windows 8 and the successor to Windows Server 2008 R2. Windows Server 2012 is the first version of Windows Server to have no support for Itanium-based computers since Windows NT 4.0. Windows Server 2012, now in its second release (Windows Server 2012 Release 2) includes Foundation, Essentials, Standard and Datacenter, and does not support IA-32 or IA-64 processors.

We have multiple Send Connectors with an Address Space of "*" and all of these connectors have the same cost.  

What is different is that these connectors have different Source Servers defined.

Each of these connectors is intended for a specific site.  As an example, one connector contains the source servers for site A, the next connector contains source servers for site B, and the next connector for site C, etc.  

Even though the connectors have the same address space and cost, Exchange is somehow able to use the correct connector that contains the local source servers where the message is being sent from.  My question is...how is this being done when the send connectors have the same address space and cost?

I have a Dell r320 server running Windows 2012 r2 server hosting 2 Hyper-V Virtual Machines.  About once a week, the server and both VMs come to a slow crawl.  My event viewer shows no major events at all.  Suggestions?

Hi
 Anyway l am trying to block the Default Domain Policy from the Server OU so that the a Configure Automatic Updates is GPO is disabled which is part of the Default Domain Policy.  I am not sure which will be the best way to do this out of these 2 options
1.       Block the Default Domain Policy from the Server OU and create a new Server Default Domain Policy with Configure Automatic Updates disabled  and re-apply all the other domain level GPO directly to the server OU
2.      Create a server security group put all the servers in the group and then block the Default Domain Policy

I would greatly appreciate your assistance with this matter

Issue:
Ask for the admin password on MacOs computers when they try to rename a folder that is networked and shared with several users.

Windows Server 2012 R2 server, contains the shared folder and wwo MacOs one with High Sierra and another with Sierra

Tests:

With the computer "High sierra" I create folder 1, inside 2, and inside the two the 3.

With the computer "sierra" I try to rename folder 2 per folder 4 and automatically MacOs asks for the admin password

The permissions on the server windows 2012 r2 are correct.

Tnx All

Hi,
I'm facing an issue with my Hyper-v host 1 . last couple of days when the backup job run to backup hyper-v host including virtual machines . I get below error and virtual machines lose network connectivity and loses the failover cluster communication .

"Failed to allocate VMQ for NIC B038F6F3-B1DB-48CF-9566-A98A0E7340F0--D5DAA699-7131-42C1-B895-3658D6F16959 (Friendly Name: Network Adapter) on switch 91306166-6B98-498C-B029-D552838FCD61 (Friendly Name: External). Reason - Maximum number of VMQs supported on the Protocol NIC is exceeded. Status = Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API. "

usually the virtual machines can be reached on network in 15 minutes . but its been 8 hours a mailbox server virtual machine is not accessible through network and i have tried accessing through hyper-v manager but its unresponsive .even i tried shutting down from hyper-v manager but throws me error. Is there any way to access the unresponsive mailbox virtual machine other than turning it off from hyper-v manager at the moment make the mailbox server up.
I'm desperately waiting for a help .
Thanks in advance.
PS:- hyper-v host in windows server 2012 standard

This is no any incident or problem, but I wanted to know, how to extend the shared disk on Windows server 2012 R2 cluster. Does it needs downtime or is it straight forward like any other disk extension?

Currently getting this error
File Server Resource Manager Service error: Unexpected error.
Error-specific details:
   Error: FlushFileBuffers(\\?\Volume{ccd01966-fb11-11e7-9465-0050568a074e}\System Volume Information\SRM\FciNrt.usn), 0x80070001, Incorrect function.

mountvol output does not have a matching UUID for the volume.  
Device Instance Path for greyed out hidden volumes in device manager does not have a matching UUID.
I found this article: https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/125753-how-to-resolve-srmsvc-errors-server-2012 for a similar error, though without confirmation that this is a permissions error, I do not think this would resolve these errors.

Has anyone experienced this error before, and if so, how did you resolve it?

Hi All,

I currently have 4 DC's listed and only 2 are in production. The other 2 that are not being used were VMs that no longer exist and I no longer have access to them. Is there a way to forcefully remove them and to do a metadata clean-up? Everything I've found has a solution for people that still have access to that server.

We had servers shut down for a couple days over the weekend due to power outages. Since they came up, we've been having a multitude of time-sync errors, and on the server side have been able to resolve the issues so that everything has the correct time...now, out clients have issues remoting in to servers, or connecting to shares with the error being that the server is not synced with the primary domain controller....the strange thing is that they are. They all point to server1 which has the FSMO roles. Computers have been restarted yet the issue remains. Any thoughts?

I am switching to a new Windows domain and have a few remote employees that refuse to drive to the office, therefore I cannot switch them right now

How can I remove a computer from a domain without needing the "Domain Admin" or "Local Admin" login when doing the below step #3 since
 1. I will no longer have the domain by the time the remote employee is onsite and
 2. Employee will not let me do a VPN/etc to their laptop since it is not on and
 3. I do not remember what CACHED "Domain Admin" or "Local Admin" users might be on really OLD machine, therefore I cannot rely on an old CACHED account ?

---------------------------------------------------------------------

STEPS
 1. login to "Domain" controlled laptop that is not on my domain
 2. change to "WorkGroup"
 3. get prompted for "Domain Admin" or "Local Admin" login
 4. enter login
 5. reboot
 6. change works

Hi All,

I recently had to rebuild a Windows Server 2k12R2 Server. Current Set-Up

2 x Windows Server 2k12R2

DC01 has all the FSMO roles
DC02 (before rebuilt) - kicked it off the domain, demoted the server
DC02 (rebuilt) - I gave it the same name and IP address as the one that I demoted.

Issues:
  • I'm unable to replicate, when I do repadmin /syncall, it says that the RPC server is unavailable
  • I am able to ping the rebuilt DC02 by IP
  • I have attached a screen shot of dcdiag
  • It says no host record, but when I check the DNS manager of DC01 and DC02, I do see it

I need some help when trying to print remotely from a 2012 Windows Terminal Services box, when logged the printer shows redirected but once I try to print a test page I receive a message "test page failed to print. Would you like to view the print troubleshooter for assistance?" Any ideas? I have loaded a hp universal driver on the server and still did not work. When I try to test print using the Microsoft XPS redirected driver it works fine.

No problem pinging to 8.8.8.8 from the server.  Once I turned off Enhanced Security I can get to google.com now, but still get:

'Failed Update' Error found:
    Code 8024402C - Windows Update ran into a problem.

I'll turn Enhanced Security back on... but I was trying to troubleshoot the windows update issue.   Looks like nothing has updated on her server since July 2017.

I'm trying to run Windows Update but it keeps failing.   I attempted to bypass the update app and was going to download the specific KB file to do the update, but I can't get to the internet at all from the server.   I can get to the interest from the workstation that connected to this domain, but not the server.  I suppose I could copy it to a USB and install it that way, but there are at least 100 updates that need to be done.

When launching IE on the server....  Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.
