The Windows security model doesn't differentiate between "Shutdown" and "Restart". In terms of user rights assignments they're the same thing. I've had some similar scenarios with task-oriented computers where I'd sometimes need the user to be able to restart the computer (but not shutdown). (I can't say I've ever been happy with these situations but we ...

As for why ssh-host-config creates two user accounts is mostly answered by Dan. More on why a separate account is needed to setuid can be found here, it's a complicated process. As for your first sub-question, I believe it's defaults, too, like the password expiry - in /usr/share/csih/cygwin-service-installation-helper, used by ssh-host-config, the user is ...

The solution (see this technet thread) is to manually download and install the superseded prerequisite patch KB291442. Once KB291442 is installed, all subsequent updates should install through the usual SCCM Software Update deployment method. To streamline this workaround a bit more, I packaged the prerequisite patch KB291442 as a SCCM application and ...

If you did not tick the "Remove this item when it is no longer applied" box on the "Common" tab of the Drive Map Group Policy Preferences entry then, by default, the preference will persist even after the GPO no longer applies.

Yes. Process Monitor and Process Explorer from Microsoft Sysinternals will give you a "Life Time" for each process, which tracks when a process was started relative to other processes, so you can see which processes were just started versus ones that have been running for a long time. Without using any external tools, you can also simply enable Process ...

The Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) have always been very sensitive to exact Windows versions. In other words, don't even try to manage a server that is running a different version of Windows than your client. And by different version, I mean Windows 8.1 -> Server 2012 R2 Windows 8 -> Server 2012 Windows 7 -> 2008 R2 Windows Vista -> 2008 ...

Also, you can install the System Center Virtual Machine Manager and add your cluster resources to your Fabric. Then you have only to install the SCVMM console on your Workstation to manager your Cluster and your Cluster Resources, Hyper-V nodes etc. Cheers, ankso

This question is rather old but might come in handy for someone later on. I've succesfully used this 5nine product in the past, though i only needed to manage one single Hyper-V 2008 host, not a cluster. Looking at the feature list it does say cluster management is possible. 5nine Manager 5.2 for Hyper-V ...

You might also notice that the OS is showing Windows Server 2003 on your WSUS server. Have you tried installing KB2734608 on your WSUS server? You'll also want to make sure to run the post commands on each of your Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 servers. Net stop wuauserv rd /s %windir%\softwaredistribution\ Net start wuauserv

This seems to be more a work-around than an answer: on a stand-alone Win8.1 Enterprise workstation, an actual user account needs to be added to the share permissions, as Win8.1 seems to ignore what members are in the local Administrators group. Once the computer is joined to a domain, the user account can be swapped with the local Administrators group in ...

EDIT: It's worth noting that the OP pointed out that administrative shares such as C$ are disabled on standalone/workgroup machines. As such the below in italics is my original answer and my updated answer is shown in regular font. \\StandAlone\CShare is that an actual share? I would expect you to be browsing to \\StandAlone\C$ instead and then putting ...

Which local admin credentials are you using? You will need to use the user account on the Domain computer, not the Standalone. Also, did you explicitly grant it the local administrator access via the permissions setting on the share itself (not NTFS perms, the share perms)? You will need to do that too. If you still cannot access, can you post a screenshot ...

What you're looking for is the Authorization Manager MMC. Basically, this article tells you everything, but I'll paraphrase for posterity purposes. This will allow you to have a local set of authorizations for administrating specific roles. Namely, the "Hyper V Services" administrators group can be delegated to specific users (tested) or -most likely- ...

For Windows Vista and Windows 7 this is a known 'feature' according to the Microsoft KB953945, with the only 'resolution' is to work around the problem by temporarily renaming the file to something else first. From the above article the resolution is To work around this issue, rename the file to another name, and then rename back with the changed letter ...

So, here's the thing. If you're planning to change the file system anyway, you're going to have to backup your data at some point in this process regardless of whether your external drive is accessible after you disconnect it and delete the Storage Space. So, I think the smartest route is probably to back up your files, make the necessary configuration ...
