(Probably, would not help the original poster, but may help someone who is directed here by Google). I just ran into a similar issue with Win 7: updates would not arrive, and KB947821 would be "Searching for updates on this computer" forever. Turned out that BITS service for some reason was not running and was set to Manual start. After starting it (and ...

Is this a once off? If so you can probably get away with just the shutdown command; no scheduled task needed. Eg, to restart in 12 hrs (or 43200 seconds): shutdown -r -t 43200 Unfortunately, this doesn't work on all versions; Server 2003 and Vista restrict you to 600 seconds (10 minutes). For all versions since then and, strangely, also XP, the maximum ...

I know this doesn't solve your whole problem but for versions of Windows Server since 2008, and in cases where you only need the server to reboot once, you don't need to bother with scheduled tasks. The built in shutdown command lets you specify a delay in seconds using the the -t parameter. Eg, to restart in 12 hrs (or 43200 seconds): shutdown -r -t ...

It was hard but I finally figured it out. Run "mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd". Go to the file and open it in notepad++ (c:\cygwin\etc...). There, you will notice that the account listings is similar to (for a local account) machine-name+username. (eg- xyz+joe:*:...) To be sure, open PuTTY and try to connect with this entire username. i.e. +. You should be ...

The Server Fault Site has an answer for this. http://serverfault.com/questions/669810/windows-2008-r2-standard-server-how-to-disable-rc4 The real key seems to be to use the IIS Crypto app from Nartac, which was an app I was apprehensive to install and try on a publicly facing server.

I guess the double-appended primary suffix is due to IPV4 Ethernet settings located under "DNS" tab, please check "Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes". Note: Un-check "Append these DNS Suffixes" under DNS Tab

Looks like a local or domain group policy. Run gpedit.msc on the machine in question and expand the following policy tree: Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name Set that to "Disabled" and see if that does it. You can run gpupdate ...

When the DC boots up it goes across the WAN to pull down the DNS zone from the DNS server in the central office - That isn't technically correct. When booting up, a DC will inbound replicate all AD partitions, including AD integrated DNS zones (which are AD partitions when the zone is AD integrated), so the booting DC isn't technically pulling a copy of the ...

You can get the size by mapping the drive to a letter and querying it with the Get-PSDrive cmdlet. Works without admin access on the server or even write access to the share. net use T: \\server\share $freebytes=(Get-PSDrive T).Free net use T: /delete

You can use WMI to get the free disk space as a non-administrative user, but you first of all need to change the WMI permissions on the remote server.

From here give the user you want to be ...

I used to work in an environment with 5,000 workgroup computers--no domain. I can assure you that it's not Active Directory (or your lack of same). My personal opinion is that yes, there are a lot of benefits to installing a domain controller, including software installs, authentication, etc., but one of these benefits will most likely not be an end to ...

What DNS servers are assigned to each client via DHCP? If it's anything other than your AD DNS server then that is the root of your problem and you need to stop doing that. AD domain joined computers should only use the AD DNS servers for DNS. If you're having a problem with internet connectivity/DNS name resolution with that configuration then you need to ...

I ran into this same issue when running the salt-minion as "Local System" account on Windows. It has something to do with git itself when running as that user.

Network discovery isn't the function or responsibility of a single component. While NetBIOS is one of those components, it isn't the only one. If you want to disable Network Discovery then you should do it from the advanced sharing settings in Network and Sharing center.

VB has nothing to do with the cause of the error.

Are you sure that the computer is on? I am not sure what the exact threshold is but if a client does not check in for a predetermined period of time it will move into an inactive state. If you know the machine is on, your best bet initially in my experience is to simply reinstall the client. If that does not work, you will need to dig into the logs and ...

If you're selecting a disk as the backup location for Windows Server Backup then WSB effectively takes over that disk and doesn't allow user access to that disk. It removes it from Disk Management (AFAIK) so it won't show up there nor in Windows/File Explorer. You're going to have to select a network share (other than your Samba share) as your backup target ...

Didn't have time to follow what magicandre1981 suggested, but was able to confirm that the patch solved the issue. Maybe this will be helpful to others that have a similar memory leak issue.

I have been back through all the settings on a recreated base image. I set the policy keys using the local group policy editor, and this time the reboot behaviour is working as expected.

Since you asked for PowerShell, you can use WMI and set it via the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration provider: Get-WMIObject win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration This will list the adapters you have, then you can select a specific one: $adapter = Get-WMIObject win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -Filter "Index=X" # or use PowerShell filtering $adapter = ...

No there isn't, but you shouldn't be assigning individual users to shared folders anyway. Use groups and then add users to those groups. Then you won't need to keep propagating permission changes and also keeps you from having a disaster of ACEs in your ACLs.

Domain based Account Policies are applied from the Default Domain GPO.

You can setup Performance Monitor to log memory used per process. Under available counters, scroll down to the Process object, expand it. Add Private Bytes, Working Set and Working Set-Private.

AFAIK there is no other EventLog modules for nxlog. It could be possible that Enterprise version is more capable in this field than Community version I assume your are using. Maybe not directly answering your question but you can try other log shipper ... I recommend https://github.com/Cimpress-MCP/TimberWinR, it uses MS's LogParser to access EventLog.

Built-in GPO for proxy settings is messed up. Not only you need to set up settings for each version of IE (and download admx files for ie11), they are really sometimes just dont work.

So after a lot more googling (I hoped somebody here will do it for me ;) I figured it out! The field "task" is not a path to a program, but name of a task which needs to be defined in Task Scheduler!

I found a solution. Since our server, which receives the fax, is a DomainController I added DOMAIN\DomainController as an authorized user at the FileStation. Now the server has write access, regardless the executing account. This can be a bit of a security issue, but I restricted the access to certain folders only.
