The issue is not related to VMs at all! I discovered the cause of the issue on the host system's TCP/IP configuration after more trial & error. The issue was located here: System Preferences > Network > Advanced > TCP/IP tab > DHCP Client ID field I had input the host name of the computer in this field. I removed it, and the erroneous MAC addresses ...

If you want to overwrite the task if it's already there, use the /F switch. The switch is also explained in the schtasks /Create /? help and here.

You've got (b) wrong. You don't put in routes between the two NICs in the Win 7 box. Windows already knows to route from one network to the other when you put it in routing mode. What you might have to do on the Win 7 box is add routes to any other networks that are behind other routers. The other thing you'll have to do is configure all the controllers to ...

The bit about having remote users contact Windows Update might require a bit of effort, depending on how your VPN is set up, but the rest is very possible. It's pretty easy to use GPOs to assign different WSUS servers to client at different AD sites, and AD sites are defined by subnet. So assuming that's all configured properly, this is a fairly simple ...

I'm assuming you're Windows 7 systems are at least Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise as they are the versions that can join a domain. I ran across a hotfix for Windows 7 clients that can't locate the Active Directory Management Gateway service. It might be worth exploring. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/969429

How exactly does ping -a resolve the host name? This is called reverse DNS. Forward DNS resolves names into IP addresses. Reverse DNS resolves IP addresses into names. When you type ping -a 1.2.3.4 into your computer, it issues the DNS query PTR 4.3.2.1.in-addr.arpa. PTR stands for pointer record. Why is everything except 'ping -a 192.168.99.3' work ...

You can easily create a GPO that creates a scheduled task on these computers. In these task (which you'd probably want to run daily), simply run delprof2 with "/r" for roaming profiles and "/d" for the days you want it to stay. You can do a test with "/l" and see what profiles you get back.

You should be able to do this directly via Group Policy: Computer Configuration Preferences Control Panel Settings Local Users and Groups Add Group Action: Update Group name: Remote Desktop Users (built-in) Members: Add... DOMAIN\Support This way you can even have separated support groups for different OUs.

Group Policy Preferences - group membership. --- Edit --- Please feel free to fill in the gaps. Group Policy is a core function of Active Directory domains. Group Policy Preferences are an extension introduced with Win2k8/Vista that can be used to control things such as files, groups, [temporary] registry keys/values on your clients. Try Googling "Group ...

I'm not sure if I'd call it a 'native' functionality, but its not an uncommon thing to do. The basic mechanism by which you would accomplish this type of authentication is to use machine certificates. By leveraging your active directory as a PKI environment, you can deploy machine certificates to every Windows machine. Once you have deployed machine ...

It turns out I had setup the central store previously, but I didn't have all of the administrative templates for Windows 2008 R2/Windows 7 there.

From TechNet: A certificate is needed to authenticate an RD Session Host server when SSL (TLS 1.0) is used to secure communication between a client and an RD Session Host server during RDP connections. You can select a certificate that you have already installed on the RD Session Host server, or you can use the default self-signed certificate. You can ...

I'm fairly certain that the HP Designjet T3500ps HPGL2 driver is intended for printers with the optional accessory C0C66A Designjet PostScript/PDF Upgrade Kit installed. As I recall, it just adds functionality, so it will work just fine for a Designjet T3500 without that accessory as well.

Answering to include info from the comments on the accepted answer. In IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008r2, the IIS_IUSRS group is already included, but the separate IUSR group must still be added to permissions to allow for file access/download. For more information on the differences in the accounts see Understanding Built-in User and Group Accounts in IIS. ...

I wouldn't install a desktop OS on a server-class system precisely because you'll lose the monitoring and driver support that's needed. Those things are critical when working with HP ProLiant equipment. You may have an option to virtualize if the application in question is not interactive or can live in an RDP session. Otherwise, try to get a more ...

Might I suggest installing a Server OS and using Virtualbox to install a Win7 client? This can use the screen/keyboard/mouse directly connected to the server and it can be used as if Win7 were the main OS by maximizing the window and such. That seems like the easiest solution from my end.

I had the same problem and was able to resolve this without rebuilding the pc. Opened network adapter properties Selected "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" Properties Clicked the Advanced button on the General tab Selected the WINS tab In the NetBIOS setting, the Default selection has the following description, "Use NetBIOS setting from the DHCP ...

This is really a matter of learning what the security tokens are on Windows these days, but I'll copy/paste an answer from SO found here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8986971/what-precisely-does-run-as-administrator-do since it isn't possible to close as dupe cross-site. When you log on Windows creates an access token. This identifies you, the groups ...

If the Enable 32-bit flag won't work for you, try to check your ISAPI filters in IIS. I had some mysterious additional .net ISAPI filter on my dev machine that I couldn't account for in there (probably from some .net RC build I installed), and after removing/disabling it, all was working again.

Check your windows hosts file to make sure you do not have an entry hard coded there. This will force name resolution even if it is not resolvable there.

Consider setting the machines up as a kiosk, see http://blogs.technet.com/b/keithmayer/archive/2012/08/03/building-public-kiosk-stations-with-windows-7-and-windows8-itpro.aspx Is there some reason each user needs their own login?

Your Windows machine must have some sort of mDNS resolver (Bonjour), let it be from iTunes, Skype, or other software that installs a mDNS resolver. ping will resolve correctly if a resolver is installed because LLMNR is now used in Windows Vista and above. LLMNR utilizes the mDNS resolver to return the record. Synology uses a daemon called avahi, this is ...

(This answer is probably wrong. @xeon seems to be on the right track and I've learned something here.) The reason a DNS lookup fails is because ping isn't using DNS to resolve that name. nslookup is a command for DNS lookups. ping on the other hand will also attempt to use NetBIOS/WINS and the hosts file for name resolution. The most likely scenario is ...

Add client = yes to each service to fix that error message. You also want to set options to set up proper SSL security; see below. # Enable proper SSL security. Without this, you are completely insecure! verify = 2 CAfile = /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt options = NO_SSLv2 [FIX] client = yes accept = 127.0.0.1:5679 connect = 216.52.236.112:5680 ...
