Hi Friends,

My company has 50 users in total with domain infrastructure (Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition). I wanted to install server health monitoring tool which can generate server health report and email to the designated email on everyday basis.

Any cheapest solution? Any Idea, which software is worth to buy?

Thank you in advance.

Dear guys, we have an Exchange 2016 on-premise server and would like to increase the attachment's size of users' emails to 100 MB. We did some research and followed but still got the error "The following files weren't attached because adding them would cause the message to exceed the maximum size limit of 25 MB: smex_12.0_ag.pdf. " when attached a file that is bigger than 25 MB into an email. Could you please suggest?


Attached pictures are our settings, we restarted IIS, Transport services, even server itself but did not help!

Hello. Started working at a company. They have folder redirection implemented on a Group Policy. They had an old file server that I just replaced with a new one. I did a robocopy of all the shares to the new server and switched them over at the start of the week. I did not change the folder redirection yet and had planned to do this week. However this morning the old server went down. And by old I mean 12 years old, old. Anyways, I had already did a robocopy of all the users docs and desktops over to the new server, and I just went and did a backup of all of them manually as well just in case. We also have an off-site backup so I know we have the data however I want to change the folder redirection to the new file server/share that I have created. All the data is already there, other than maybe a few files they created in the last few days which I can pull from our backups. Do I just need to change the group policy to point it to the new server/share, then take the check mark off the "move contents to new server" option, and then do the gupdate /force and have everyone log in tomorrow?

Am I missing anything? I am eventually moving to DFS because the new server is 2012 r2, but I need to get everyone logged in tomorrow with their files. There are about 20 or so users. Any help would be appreciated. I have never had to deal with folder redirection before and I don't want to have long logins tomorrow morning.

Thanks in advance!

Hi.. I'm a newbie and I need some help..
- I created a storage pool called images, the capacity of this HDD is 500 GB
- Then I create a Virtual Disk (Simple / Thin ) with a capacity of 2.00 TB
-  THE PHYSICAL IS 500GB

my issue is that that even though the capacity is 2 TB, I can only use up to 500,  I read somewhere that it doesn't matter, that I can add another physical to the pool and somehow with this new disk add that capacity to virtual disk and problem solved..

Well I have no IDEA how to do that, any help will be appreciated..

We have an older server that we are using to evaluate some software we are looking to purchase.  I set it up with a Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 180 day trial for this evaluation.  that trial has since expired and I am trying to determine what me best course of action would be going forward.  My thought is that once we decide to move forward with this software that i will likely end up purchasing a new server for better performance so i am not sure what i should do? or even what i can do....

Obviously I could just buy a license for the 2012 R2 Standard, but what i am wondering is if its possible to purchase a 2016 license and activate it on a 2012 system?  and if so, could i then in the future potentially move this license to a new server with 2016 installed at some point down the road?

Thanks

Hi

We have a windows 2012 application server in our network and have a shared drive called "G" and normally we install applications on this drive and this drive gets mapped for our users.

Now I have been given an application and when installing this application on this Windows 2012 server and it defaults to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Pearson\AdministratorDashboard
I wanted to change the default path to “G” drive and it doesn’t allow to change the path and says cannot change the path.

So installed this application on the default path.Now the shortcut for this program has be installed on the servers desktop. When I execute the shortcut the program opens successfully.
Only the exam officer needs access to this application .Is there a way to create this shortcut on windows 7 PC for  point to this server.

Any help will be great.
Thanks

I have a very big production server in a VM with lots of web pages and SQL database code.

I want to set up VisualSVN so developers can work on the web and database code.

I have 2 options:
1) copy the production VM with all code, name this DEV-VM, and set up SVN on DEV VM
2) setup SVN on production VM so I don't have duplicate VMs that take up A LOT of space

Which option would you choose and why?

Hello,

I'm trying to troubleshoot some performance issues that we've been having and one thing I've noticed is that it appears that vmotioning from one host to another has been taking a few minutes.  I know there are more granular methods of finding this out, but is the attached event a fair representation of a that particular vmotion taking ~2.5 minutes, or am I misreading it?

EDITED Update:
It appears I am looking for the drivers for the Raid controller for the HP server for Server 2012 Stadard R2.
HP dl360p Gen8
p420i is the controller.


-Original post-
Need to find where these drivers are located.
New Seagate 12G, 10k, 900gig, SAS drives.
Almost new server and RAID was set up on these drives from the server array utility just fine.
Installing Server2012 Standard R2 requires the drivers.

Anyone know where they can be obtained?

We are migrating from Exchange 2010 to 2016 and are in a state of coexistence. I'm unable to launch any Exchange 2016 mailboxes from Outlook 2010 and 2016. I am able to open up the Exchange 2016 mailbox from Outlook Web Access. When I try to launch the mailbox from Outlook I get the error "Cannot open your default email folders. Microsoft Exchange is not available. Either there are network problems or the Exchange server is down for maintenance". Any suggestions? I have not cut over autodiscover to Exchange 2016 yet. Is there something I need to configure with Outlook Anywhere for Exchange 2016?

I have a physical HDD of 1 tb, I add (somehow) a VHD of 2tb, (sorry newbie here), now I remember somewhere saying that I could do that (add a HDD bigger than the actual size of the physical).
Now my VHD apparently has reached the point to max out the 1 TB, and of course I cheated the VHD to 2 tb, so my problem is now that I had to add another HDD and somehow let Hyper V that it can use this other physical to compensate for the missing space and I have no idea what to do...
So to recap since I know is confusing:
1 physical HDD of 1 TB, I create a Virtual HDD of 2.0 tB (bad idea and I don't even know how I did it)
The VHD has now reached the 1TB and can't save anything else but thinks has 2 TB.
I added a 1 tb physical and need somehow to tell Hyper V, "Hey this space is for the missing 1TB your missing"

I'm so screwed, can somene help me please.

If deploying a small RDS environment, can all roles exist on one server?

If not, which role(s) must exist on another server?

I have heard Licensing Services Role should exist on another server, perhaps a DC.  Also I have heard Broker Server Role too (on the same DC)?

What would you recommend?
Thank you.

I have a major time sensitive issue. I need to get this server online so they can work until later today I can provide a more permanent fix. The Main server 2012 has 25 GB free. When I start the vmachine it goes down to like 30MB. I moved files from the virtual machine to free 25 GB of space but that didn't effect the numbers on the main server.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

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.

After logging onto the Office 365 module within PowerShell on a Server 2012 R2 server and typing in the Install-Module -Name AzureAD command within PowerShell I receive an error message that says

"Install-Module : The term 'Install-Module' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or
operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try

+ Install-Module -Name AzureAD
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Install-Module:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException"

What do I need to do so I can successfully install the Azure AD module within PowerShell?

Hello,
We have a site https://www.external.com (digitally signed at this moment and is external facing or out to the world) but the server that hosts that site internally is https://internal_server.test.local which is not digitally signed.

So, how to request a single SSL for www.external.com and internal_server.test.local ?

Thanks for your help

We have a couple of Windows 2012 R2 domain controllers and two 2016 domain controllers.  the two 2012 boxes are running DHCP in HA mode.  I'd like to add the DHCP role to the two 2016 boxes and bring them into the HA cluster.  

Can you have more than two domain controllers in a DHCP HA cluster?

Thanks

This should be easy it has just been several years since I have tried it. We have a Windows 2012 r2 files server that has several quota templates created. Most users are assigned 1GB for their Home Directory. We do have several other options for power users though. I have a user that is currently set up with a 1GB quota and I need to move him to our 10GB template. I am in the File Server Resource Manager and see all the templates. How can I get a specific user out of 1 and in to 10? I have attached a copy of the screen I am looking at. I am sure there is an easy way to do this..thanks
