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.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

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 copied a sharepoint 2010 database from SQL 2008 to a new SQL 2012 server and created a new WFE. After sorting out all of the issues resulting from the migration, and there were many, I am left with one and it has to be permissions linked. If anyone without admin permissions views a list or library they are missing the tools. See attached pictures of No Tools compared with the Have Tools pictures.

All permissions re lists and libraries came across fine, so all access restrictions/permissions were still the same and I changed nothing to do with any permissions.

So I am thinking this is something to do with initial set up and I am  missing something simple. E.g. is there a sharepoint group that these people need to be in etc etc

Also, this is across ALL lists and libraries, across all sub sites.

Regards

Barry

Hello,

i need some help/assistance by some configuration i made.

recently we have setup a management server by one of our customers. the only problem we have is that this costumer has 2 domains and 2 separated exchange servers.
for each domain 1.

the Domains are 2 way domain forest trusted.


the servicedesk is not allowed to use the domain admin of each domain.

i wan't to setup a servicedesk role on both exchange servers and will let them connect with 1 user account on one of the 2 domains.
the servicedesk engineers have a user account in domain 1
they could change or add users in domain 2. like they can in domain 1.
they can change folder permissions on both domains.
they can add or manage mailboxen on the exchange server from domain 1 (where they have domain user account)

they are not allowed to sign in with there domain trusted accounts on the exchange server on domain 2.

i have trying almost every solution using secgroups.

DL cannot be added as member on a universal group only member of..
the admin role sec group automaticly created by exchange is a universal group and cannot be changed to domain local of global, if you do it is not visable in exchange anymore.

the only group that can add users from a trusted domain to the member tab is a domain local (strange enough)
but Domain Local group cannot be add on the member tab of a universal group.

do one of you have another solution other than creating the SD accounts on both domains?

I am getting this event id 9320 Source MsexchangeSA. This is on my exchange server 2010 with server 2012. How can i solve this?


"OABGen could not generate full details for some entries in the offline address list for address list '\All Contacts'.  To see which entries are affected, set event logging for the offline address list generator to at least medium."

"OABGen could not generate full details for some entries in the offline address list for address list '\Global Address List'.  To see which entries are affected, set event logging for the offline address list generator to at least medium."

I have followed https://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000480 but i am unable to find out what. There were some contacts that had errors which have been deleted. The administrator had expired certificates and i followed https://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000581

Before i had the below with event 9327

OALGen skipped some entries in the offline address list '\Global Address List'.  To see which entries are affected, event logging for the OAL Generator must be set to at least medium.

I work as a systems analyst for a divested corporate division. I've been tasked with migrating 47 Windows 2k8 and 2k12 file-and-print, application and database servers to the new company's domain. Due to strict security restrictions, a trust between the two forests is not possible, not even on a temporary basis.

Would anyone know of migration tools which can work without trusts, besides QMM and Binary Tree's AD Pro?
Alternatively, we would need to map permissions between accounts based on SID, since account name resolution would also be unavailable between forests. I've looked at "subinacl /offlinesam", "icacls /substitute" and Powershell as possible solutions.

Please let me know your suggestions on how to best accomplish this server migration task.

Thank you,

Sergey

Hello,

For some reason, I am not see any new updates in my c:\windows\windowsupdate.log file since a few months ago.

Is there a way to make logging happening again?

The Windows Updates on the server has been happening successfully on the server and the Windows Update services is up and running.  

It is just that the windowsupdate.log is not logging.  

Please advise if anyone knows what might be happening or how to fix.

Thanks a lot.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

We are using ADFS 3.0. Under Claim Descriptions, is it necessary to Publish one of the default rules to the metadata before using it? I believe the answer is no but want to confirm

I am having the hardest time understanding the security for folder permissions. On our AD  I created security groups and added members inside those groups. I add members inside the group that I want full control of the folder to.

I then right click the target folder under the security tab I add the newly created Group. I notice in the security tab I see the following groups:
Everyone
System
DomainUsers
Users

I would like to set the rest of the user group to list the folder and read, nothing else.

When I try and apply the changes to the newly created group security group I get the following error message attachedError Message when adding access to the newly created security group
So two things I need to know why is that error causes? and how to set the rest of the users to read only.

I am trying my luck at Powershell scripting. I found this code below and modified for my drives. I would like to automate a function so that every user I add to the AD and once they log in it will launch a script that will automatically map to teh SQL01\SQL folder. How can I do this, will the below powershell script work?


$mapped = Get-WmiObject Win32_MappedLogicalDisk | Select DeviceId, ProviderName
foreach ($item in $mapped) {
    if ($item.ProviderName -eq '\\SQL01\SQL' -and $item.DeviceId -e 'M:') {net use $item.DeviceId /del}
}

I have an old Windows 7 Workstation that belongs to a workgroup. It is responsible for 2 major functions that both require a separate drive mapping to 2 different servers on our Windows 2012 domain. The mappings are unstable and even though I check to reconnect box one or both manages to have a RED X every couple days. Security will not allow me to give the end user the password to the AD service account I use to map the drives. So everyone couple of days one of the major functions comes to a halt until I am contacted and if I am not available phones start ringing, emails start getting sent to my boss and you get the jest. I need a solution what I can give the end user that allows her a one click fix to remap. I know I can write a .bat file but am concerned I may need to hard code the password in the script which will be another security issue. Or is it possible to use local GPOs to unmap or remapped the drives each time the user logs in? I just need a quick and simple solution. Something very easy to fix gets escalated to a major issue real fast and I need a way to prevent this. All suggestions welcome even if it is different than a script of local GPO. BTW, I know I could put the workstation on the domain but that creates other issues with internet access one of the processes the device is used for....thanks

Is there any way to prevent users copying files from a mapped drive, when they're not domain joined?

Local devices - connect to shared folders from the server, using their AD accounts for authentication only. Local devices are NOT domain joined.

Any one can let me know this issue ?

Thank you for your help.

We are setting up and testing out Citrix XenApp 7.17 and we have

- 3 Microsoft terminal servers
- 1 master server

It appears how this version of Citrix XenApp updates the terminal servers is that you make the change on the master and test it.  The when you are ready the Citrix Studio software clones the master server and replaces the 3 terminal servers.  As we are testing this out I tried to push some updates (new clones virtual servers) I have run into this errors message from the vsphere client:  "Snapshot hierarchy is too deep".

error1
I originally thought it was a Citrix error; but, I now think that this is a VMware error.  Please see the screen shots and how many snapshots we have associated with that master virtual server.

error2
I wonder if I should "delete all" snapshots or what I should do.  Ideas?

SERVER2015 = Windows 2012 R2, DC, AD, DNS, DHCP


User1 belongs to "domain admin group". I can open an MSTSC session with User1 credentials

User2 belongs to "remote desktop user group". I cannot open an MSTSC session with User2 credentials

Question:
How do I open a MSTSC session with User2 ? (User2 should not belong to "domain admin" group)

Server running essential 2012 r2

I'd like to redirect the Client Computer backups to a external USB drive, but don't see anywhere that allows me to direct the backup to a particular drive or folder.

Is it possible to backup Client Computer backups to a external USB drive?
If so how?

Setting up a remote desktop connection to windows server 2012 for a few company owners to access one on-site application.

The issue is that all the current desktop icons are saved in the public desktop folder. So I can't delete these icons for the new accounts unless I delete them from the public desktop folder.

What would be the best way to maintain these icons for the current accounts but allow the new accounts to have a custom desktop and delete the icons from it they won't need (without affecting everyone else's desktop)?

Hi, I am using Exchange2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
I would like to get confirmation of a specific message.
I can't find a powershell / exchange console command useful to get this.
I mean, if I use:

C:\Windows\system32>Get-MessageTrackingLog -sender some_sender@domain.com  -recipients some_recipient@recipientdomain.com

I only get this:

RECEIVE  STORE... some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
SUBMIT   STORE... some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
HARED... SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
RECEIVE  SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
AGENT... AGENT    some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
TRANSFER ROUTING  some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
SEND     SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 

Open in new window

but I have no evidence that remote SMTP got my mail, remote message ID, and so on.
How can I find this?

thank you!
