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.

Hello, I whant to know if it is poosible allow users save on a shared folder (windows server 2012 R2) only certain file types, determinated by the file extension.
In other words, I want to allow users to write/delete/modify files on a shared folder, only if the files are (*.doc*, *.xls*, etc etc)
I am aware the opposite option, to block file types, but I want to allow only some file extensions...

Thanks in advance

Hi

It's because this option is missing from the gpmc console.
Default location is: Computer > Windows Settings > security settings > Advance Audit Policy Configuration > Audit Policies > Detail tracking

Kind regards

Hello -

I have a system that is outside our network and is not part of our domain. Client is running Office 2010 and I have setup the system with Microsoft Exchange Proxy settings and client is able to send/receive email. The issue is that I created a Public Folder within Exchange 2013, however client is not able to see public folder. The public folder is accessible within client's OWA. Are Public Folders accessible if client is not part of domain and client is using Microsoft Exchange Proxy settings?

Thanks,

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?

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

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.

Transaction Monitoring Vs. Real User Monitoring

Transaction Monitoring Vs. Real User Monitoring

Synthetic Transaction Monitoring Vs. Real User Monitoring: When To Use Each Approach? In this article, we will discuss two major monitoring approaches: Synthetic Transaction and Real User Monitoring.

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?

Hello Experts,

I'm in the process of disabing SMB1 server on all our environments and have only our Prod left.

I would like to be able to identify without installing Message Analyser/Wireshark if there's any SMB1 use and there's two powershell  commands which get close to what I need:

get-smbsession - shows all user sessions to the server, but not SMB version used
get-smbconnections - shows smb version/info for current user logged onto the server

Is there a way to show the SMB version for all the user sessions on the server? Possibly piping one of the above commands into the other?

many thanks,
Gareth

I'm trying to add Net framework 3.5.  It asks me for an alternate location for the source.  I put the DVD in the drive and selected the drive letter but it still fails.

Do I need to put the path in to a specific location on the DVD or could I run setup and add features?

I'm trying to add a server (Server B) as a child domain to an existing forest.  The server was originally setup as a domain controller to replace the on prem domain controller, but was later decided to make is a child of the forest since the NAS on site can communicate with multiple domains of the same forest. I have removed the ADDS role and demoted the server. The old domain controller has a functional level of Windows Server 2012 R2 and the domain is called XYZ.com. This server was originally setup on a 192.168.60.0/24 network. IT Management has setup the new server (Server B) on a 10.10.16.0/22 network and want to make it a child so that it's domain would be abc.xyz.com. Management has also added a 10.10.16.x IP address on XYZ. On XYZ, I have setup a new site in AD Sites and Services with the 10 subnet and have renamed the original Site for clarity and have set it up with it's 192 subnet. Both servers are manually configured with IP/Subnet Mask/Default Gateway/DNS. Both servers have 2 IPs, one on the 10 network and one on the 192 network. From Server B, I can ping xyz.com by IP but not by name. When I try by name, the replys come from the hosted website. Each network has it's own default gateway. I then go to server B and add the AD DS role and then proceed to Promote the server. I choose the option to "Add a new domain to an existing forest". The "Select domain type" is set to Child Domain. I click on the Select button next to parent domain name where it asks me for …

We have a domain controller running Windows 2012 Server and it's also our DNS/DHCP server.  Non Windows devices acquire a DHCP lease, but fail to register in DNS.  Yesterday I added a non Windows device to the network, which immediately showed up in DHCP, but not in DNS.  This morning it finally did show up in DNS.  I added another device today and change the scavenge setting to 1 hour, but it still does not register with DNS.  I do have it checked to dynamically update DNS.

Maybe it tomorrow it will magically show up in DNS, but shouldn't it immediately be added to DNS when a DHCP lease is created?  How can I get this to happen without manually add it?

I have a Hyper - V host that hosts 3 VM Servers.  Two of the servers have multiple checkpoints and a "Now" Checkpoint.  Everything is running well, but disk space is starting to concern me.  I would like to merge the current configuration (Now) into the .VHDX file and remove all of the .AVHDX files.  My understanding is that deleting the checkpoints will do this automatically, and that this can be done without shutting down the VM, but I am not sure in what order that should be done.  Oldest to newest?  Newest to oldest? or by some other method.

I have not been able to find documentation on how to accomplish this.

Im looking to convert one of my physical servers (server 2003 SPK2) to a VM to host on my hyper-V server (Server 2012 R2)

Is there a server backup software that can image the entire disk (1 physical disk 2 partitions) then restore the image to the Hyper-v server?

Hello,

I'm trying to extend the volume on Server 2012 R2, but for some reason the Extend Volume is grayed out. I tried to do this under Disk Management and under the Server Manager but it says it only has 1MB of Unallocated space even though it has 371.50GB of Unallocated space. Any clues as to why it won't let me extend?

Please see screenshots attached.

We need to merge a 2008 and 2012R2 Windows domain into one 2012R2 domain.  The issue is they both have the exact same now.  Please let me know how these can be merged or at least joined so users can be consolidated.

Hi experts
I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 - 64 bit, 32 GB RAM.
On this runs a SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition 64 bit

The issue is that the sqlservr.exe service consumes almost 95% of memory (approx 28 GB).
I was checking and the configurations of min and max memory are not configured, I see the values like this:

Min server memory = 0
Max server memory = 2147483647
These are the default values.

My question is: what is the correct way or what should I take into account to give the appropriate values to my BD in relation to memory. Or how to tell if these 32GB of RAM I have is what I really need or are already running short.

Over the weekend I migrated a physical Windows 2008 to a virtual Windows 2012r2 server.   Due to the large size of the SAN volumes instead of copying the files to a new volume I connected them directly to the new VM  using RDM Disks in VMWare 5.5.

Afterwards I did some random access checks to make sure permissions looked ok.   I was able to access everything I tried which I should have had access to and I was not able to access folders to which I do not have access.  

I then exported the ACL's for each network share and compared them to a export I made before the migration.   I realized there were some missing folders on the new export.   When I connected to the share with my admin account I saw the folder and when I selected it I was notified that I did not have permission to view the folder and it allowed me to grant my self access.   When I look at the permissions they all look correct.   The local administrators group has full access to the folder and when I check the Administrators group our network Admin security group is included as a member.

I removed my explicit permissions to the folder and I was unable to access the folder again.  I added myself again and removed the administrators group from the folder then added it back with full permissions.    I then removed the explicit permissions for my account and tried to access it again without success.  

This is only effecting a few folders so far but I am not sure how to resolve the issue.   I would …

Hello,

I have a Windows image that I want to P2V to do some testing.

I created a VM and the controller defaulted to LSI Logic SAS.

After restoring the image to the VM using Macrium Reflect, I am being prompted for a driver for LSI Adapter, SAS 3000. For which I cannot locate a driver.

I have tried changing the controller type in the VM, but when I do that after a restart none of the volumes are accessible (even to the Macrium Recovery Environment).

So I'm not sure what the resolution is, appreciate some advice.

Thanks
