IIS UR: Re write Rule issue.

2 Windows 2012 R2 Data Center NLB IIs URL rewrite DFS/R
2 Windows 2012 R2 Web Farm IIS ASP

My internal network works fine pointing all my web sites to the virtual ip address of the NLB server.

My problem is on the external clients trying to access my sites.

I changed my port forwarding rule in my Meraki Router to point to the virtual Ip Address

After some minor adjustments I got my first domain working to a point.
 when I go http://www.tgcsnet.com   that gives me my landing page.  Then I click on a link to the next page which has several hyper links on it. I get to that page
But I have a sub directory under TGCSNET.com which I can not get displayed.
http://www.tgcsnet.com/wrestling   does not work
the other link are to external sites they work fine.

The other issue I have is with my second domain  both using ort 80

I can not access that site either.

See attached files of my rewrite config.




URL rewrite settingsURL rewrite Music site



What am I missing here?

Thank you

OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

Learn the top ten threats that are present in modern web-application development and how to protect your business from them.

http request to receive a login token from BusinessObjects worked a week ago, but no longer works, but https works.

The custom application to call BusinessObjects cannot process https call to BusinessObjects, so it's just using http.  The Windows Server 2012 had some recent updates and that seems to be the point the http call stopped working. However, the https call also doesn't work on the test server, also a recent occurance, previously http call worked, but that server hasn't changed.

We are calling BusinessObjects to get the login token, using custom.jsp, The call is this: http://businessintel.xxx.edu/BOE/OpenDocument/opendoc/custom.jsp, returning a token such as [my.server].xxx.edu:6400@1035920Jat23ZRZurWSuUdChkH7potPPeh4WnA4L1035918JhHah7YSxtrZnVHLEphyINv3xF2BcOI2O

The http call results in http error 404.

An http call to an outside link works - http://www.daggerpress.com/

So Windows Server 2012 now cannot (all of a sudden) call SAP BusinessObjects with http

I realize this is an environment issue that you won't be able to troubleshoot. Also it's Business Objects so we are pursuing assistance in other places.

But just thought I would see what anyone might say as far as how to further troubleshoot this.

I have a developer that has asked me to create two DNS  entries,

ministry.undev.domain.org
schooladmin.undev.domain.org

I created them, but  they are not coming up when I ping them. Here's what my DNS manager looks like.

DNS
So the entry is created, as it's evident in the picture.
When I do a ping ministry.undev.domain.com I get the error "ping request could not find the host ministry.undev.domain.com. please check the name and try again"

When I do a ping undev.domain.com it works fine, I get replies

Is it because with DNS, it can only have one 2 periods, like xxxx.domain.com   or did I do something wrong?

Our environment consist of Windows 2012 R2 DC's and 2012 R2 ADFS servers and have an Office 365 tenant  setup in a federated mode.  We are taking on another company who we have a AD trust with and their email domain is going to be brought into our tenant . So one tenant to separate domains. Here is my question. We have am ADFS server and AD Connect server. They also have a Windows 2012 R2 ADFS server. Can Windows 2012 R2 ADFS handle two separate forest? From what I have read is sounds like it can. Also will authentication for Office 365 go through our ADFS server or theirs?

Can we update to Window 2019 Server from windows 2008 R2? I found information about going to 2019 from 2012 or 2016, but I would like to confirm that it is not possible from 2018 R2.

I have a server which is running very low on c:\ drive disk space.

When I look a diskmgmt I see that the disk has a small c:\ partition. Next to that is the d:\ drive which has enough free space. Then on the right there is 150gb of unallocated space.

How can I use this unallocated space on the c:\ drive.

I was going to add the unallocated space to the end of the d:\ drive. Then shrink the d:\ drive so there would then be unallocated space adjacent to the c:\ drive. I could then expand the c:\ drive into that space.

Is this possible with diskmgmt or do I need to use a better partitioning tool?

Ive got a Windows 2012 R2 with terminal services installed on it. For some reason when my clients connect to the box it takes up to two minutes. On the odd occassion, its connects immediately but for the most part it takes two minutes. Not sure if its the local clients settings or the settings on the remote server. I have followed some articles which indicates turning of NLM on the server but this doesnt seem to work.

For example, I had one of the users log in today at 9am and it took 2 minutes. They called me and advised so I logged in and my session just connected immediately. The sessions were fresh ones since we power down the server each evening at 8pm.

Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Thanks

I have 8 Group Policy Objects that I apply to an OU.

When I look at the GroupPolicy event logs, specifically Event ID 5312 that shows applicable Group Policy Objects, it continuously changes.

One minute I will see all 8 applied like this:

List of applicable Group Policy objects: 
GPO-1
GPO-2
GPO-3
GPO-4
GPO-5
GPO-6
GPO-7
GPO-8

Open in new window


The next minute I look I only see 3 applied like this:

List of applicable Group Policy objects: 
GPO-1
GPO-2
GPO-3

Open in new window


When I view this specific eventID, sort, I can see the change sometimes happening within 2 minutes. Almost like it's "flapping" so to speak.

Can anyone provide insight on this? I have 4 domain controllers in 1 forrest.

Thank you in advance.

Windows 7 machines not listening to Folder Redirection group policy after a DC migration to Windows 2016.

At present, the old Windows 2012 Essentials server is still in place but a new Windows Server 2016 Standard server has been added. The domain has been migrated across along with the FSMO roles. After having issues with getting machines to pick up the new Group policy settings due to DNS issues, all does appear to be ok - at least, it is for Windows 10 clients. However, although Windows 7 clients can be coaxed into seeing the correct group policy, they are all ignoring the change in Folder Redirection location.

Things I've tried:
1. gpupdate /force
2. ipconfig /flushDNS
3  Several reboots

4. gpresult /v
This is interesting. After clearing the DNS cache, Windows 7 PCs do now pick up their group policy from the new server. However, they are still ignoring the folder redirection and the result of the above command shows:
FOLDER REDIRECTION
--------------------------------
N/A

5. I've tried removing the WMI filter from the redirection policy - no effect.
6. I've tried creating the new GPO and putting the redirection in there. GPRESULT lists the policy, so it's seeing the right stuff, but it still ignores the redirection.

Remember - Windows 10 PCs are working fine. This appears to be just Windows 7 machines.

Any ideas? I'm getting short of them!

WE have moved WSUS from 2008 to 2012 R2 server, I gave same name and IP address to new server, have installed the roles of WSUS and IIS, migrated the DB, for which it keeps showing its restoring (Screenshot attached) because DB size is 15 GB and free version of WSUS is 10 GB.
On the console of WSUS it doesn't show any updates (Screenshot attached).
So moving forward, should I install a full version of SQL Standard?
anything else I have to do to start see computers under WSUS Console?
thanks.

We have a Microsoft SQL Server database server that has 5 instances running on it. They all work just fine for our needs but one database on one instance is a little performance sensitive. The virtual machine has 4 CPU cores and 64 GB of RAM allocated to it. I'm wondering if there's a way to optimize performance on one instance so it hogs maybe half of all the available resources and let the other 4 share the rest.

I should point out that this is a development and not a production environment. I wouldn't consider loading a server up with 5 instances in a production setting.

Hi there,

I have a scheduled task with these properties:

User account to run the task: A Service account that has logon as batch file privileges
Run whether user is logged on or not is enabled
Run with highest privileges is enabled
Configured for Windows Server 2012 R2
Trigger: Runs hourly
Actions values:
  • Action: Start a program
  • Program/script: Powershell.exe
  • Arguments: -command "Start-Process  C:\Build.bat -Verb runas"
  • Start in: C:\SDS_IT\

Now the problem I am having is that even though I have set the task to run whether user is logged on or not, it never completes unless the user is actually logged on.  If it I log out, the task starts and it gets to about 95% done and then it just gets stuck.  I've tested this theory several times and this is always the case.  I'm confused as to why it's not working.  The service account has local administrative permissions on this VM too.  I'm using PoweShell because I want the script to run a command prompt as administrator.

Any thoughts????
Thank you in advance!

DB2 10.5 on Windows Server 2012 R2

I have two tables that have LOB columns.  One stores a photo and one stores a receipt in HTML format.  The two tables have 200+ million rows each and make up about 1/4 of the total database size.  These tables are written to about 90% and read from about 10% of the time.

I have read that in 10.5 you can compress LOB data but I am having issues figuring out exactly how to do it.

Documents say that I can evoke compression with ALTER DATABASE statement but does not say if that will actually compress the data or if it will only compress new data going forward.  

Also, has anyone actually done this with LOB data and if so  how sucessful was it?  Didi id cause any unforseen (or forseen) issues?

Thanks!

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Is it possible when user create a file or folder in network drive in Windows Server 2012, automatically the security setting becomes only he can modify the file or folder while the reset can only read?

Dear Wizards, we intent to setup the second Exchange mail server 2016, to form a HA diagram. Then configure the public IP addresses from different ISPs to these 2 Mail servers; so that when 1 ISP fails, we got the other ISP to backup mail service.

Example:  MX1 and MX2 to form HA DAG to synchronize emails.
MX1 has public IP from ISP1
MX2 has public IP from ISP2

dafault MX record of domain company.com is IP of ISP1; when ISP1 fails, we will map MX record to IP of ISP2


Is this possible? can you suggest pros and cons? Many thanks!

Hi,

I have a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V server with 3 VMs.  One of the VMs is setup for Remote Desktop Services and we have about 13 users connect into this server to work.  Most of them connect to it from within the office.  Some of the users connect from outside of the office.  The managers asked me if there's a way that I can restrict remote access for some of the users.  They would be able to work at their computer within the office but if they go home and feel like they want to remote into their session, they would be restricted from logging into their session when they're out of the office.  What's the best and most simple way to accomplish this?  Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a failover cluster- it is a 2-node Hyper-V Windows Server 2012, and one of the nodes had failed. I rebuilt the node, and have had weird issues seemingly related to the CNO ever since. One current problem is that failover doesn't work- I have to slow-migrate between nodes, which defeats most of the purpose of the cluster. The cluster consists of two nodes using a 10TB SAN for CSV. What risks to I run by deleting the cluster object and rebuilding it? I would do this off-hours of course, but I'm just curious what issues are likely to surface- I'll be doing this late at night, so I'd like to make sure I am as poised as possible with solutions in hand.
Thanks!
