Easiest way is to remove the network drives, and then remap them to a different letter. I favor the command line, so, I'd use the net use command. From a command prompt or PowerShell: net use f: /delete net use g: /delete net use n: \\ComputerName\ShareName /persistent:yes net use o: \\OtherComputerName\OtherShareName /persistent:yes (I'd use persistent ...

Did you try running spacesniffer as administrator like HopelessN00b suggests in the comments to your question? Usually, the big unknowns clear up and probably, you will find that the C:\Windows\WinSxS is the culprit. This is where Windows keeps different versions of .DLL files in an attempt to avoid the DLL hell of olden times. You can clean it up somewhat ...

will it know what graphics driver to use based off the hardware? Yes, Windows Setup will detect hardware and install the correct driver. But this only works if the drivers is included in the image or otherwise added during Windows Setup. Is there a better option using imagex to create image other then using an answer file? I don't know what your ...

I don't know if you use Linux much, but for this scenario I use a Linux live DVD, boot to it, then gzip the entire raw hard drive image (such as /dev/sda) onto external storage. If you want to restore the server later, you do the reverse, overlay the system image over the hard drive. We could go into the specifics if this approach is interesting to you.

I'm assuming this is a local machine (not domain joined), as you are not using GPO. Open the Local Policy Editor (Start>Run>gpedit.msc) and browse to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update and look for the Configure Automatic Updates. Enable that policy, and set the option for "Auto download and install" and set ...

I would write a small VBScript or PowerShell script that is set in task scheduler to execute at 5:30am every day that grabs a collection of all of the events from the event logs for that day and checks for that specific event id and log entry. If that event exists, execute the reboot. Here are some links that may help you: ...

Hopefully, presumably, your Linux server is running BIND, and in that case, it's possible, easy, and even documented by Microsoft. Though, even if it running something weird, the same basic process applies - move the information over by making the Windows server a secondary DNS server, then kill off the Linux server (or its DNS server, at least). Microsoft ...

It's a client-side setting, but as with most things, there's a group of GPOs you can configure to control client offline files as well. To simply check its status on a client, probably the easiest way is to open up the Sync Center in the Control Panel and go to the 'Manage offline files` link (which you can also get to by typing "offline files") into the ...

I have fixed the problem. The Windows Server 2003 was English and the Windows Server 2008 was German. The Adprep.exe needs to be the same language like both servers. Now it works fine.

Most are ignoring a lot of Microsoft Technologies used for "Infrastructure as Code" PowerShell, Desired State Configuration, CIM, WMI, Group Policy, SMA, Orchestrator, OneGet, etc. Puppet and Chef are absolutely not ready to replace SCCM in Microsoft Enterprises, I will rather use PowerShell and Group Policy instead of SCCM then use Puppet instead of SCCM. ...

No - the admin permissions are due to a group membership. A group membership is stored in a user's kerberos ticket, which will persist until they log out or the ticket expires and is renewed (its lifetime is 10 hours by default but may be customized in your domain). Logging them off or waiting for the expiration are the only ways to take away the group ...

I had a client with the same issue, after looking through their DNS settings for their adapter which lists the host file, I discovered that they had migrated from an external IP config to an internal IP config and forgot to update the DNS address'. Once I made the changes to both the PDC and the secondary DC\DNS server all was well. Did have to reboot the ...

Somewhat convoluted, but you might be able to create a 5GB partition on the local machine(s), then locally map it as the user's "my documents" directory. That way the user could never write more than 5GB. I don't know of another way to locally set a size limit at the folder level. Sort of alluded to here: ...

You can deploy batch script over GPO to DHCP servers that will change DNS settings in DHCP scope using netsh utility. A command to set DNS servers in scope with netsh is: netsh dhcp server DHCP_server_IP_or_Hostname scope Scope_Network set optionvalue 006 IPADDRESS DNS1_IP DNS2_IP If 10.10.10.1 is primary DNS, and 10.10.10.2 is secondary DNS, and ...

While possibly a [partial] duplicate of Restrict file server (CIFS) access by time of day, there is a possible workaround for what you are asking. IF you are running the share(s) from a Linux machine, you could add crontab entries that enable and disable the CIFS and NFS services during certain times of the day. (It may be possible to disable CIFS on ...

It cant be done the way I wanted it, see comment of Steve365: This blog post suggests it can't be done; "appcmd add backup" only backs up local configuration. You need to setup a manual backup for the shared config outside of IIS. mvolo.com/backing-up-and-restoring-iis-70-shared-configuration

You can use software like Acronis Disk Director or Easeus Partition Master Server to move and resize partitions however you like. Only thing is, some operations may require the server to be offline for the duration of the operation. Programs like those are not limited to grow and shrink like the windows's disk management tool, they can also move partitions. ...

You do not state which version of Exchange you are running and how Exchange is "installed" on E:, but if you have the Mailbox databases or the transport / transaction logs on E: you should do fine by just stopping all Exchange services, moving the data to another volumes, re-assigning drive letters and re-starting the services. You might have to take a look ...

I had a similar problem in the past, it was due to the storage controller doing a self test and failing, causing a reboot. Disabling tests on the storage controller fixed the problem until we replaced the controller entirely. If this is not the issue, I would still double check the rest of the hardware. I would also isolate it from the network a couple of ...

you can use 2 ssl certs on the same server with one IP but they must use another port. Multi-name certs are quite costly. URL rewrite can be used to hide the port from the client.

You can't export the zone via GUI, but you can do it via command line: dnscmd /zoneexport MYDOMAIN.com MYDOMAIN.com.txt By default the file MYDOMAIN.com.txt will be created in C:\Windows\System32\dns. Source: dnscmd.

You may find cmdkey.exe useful for this purpose. Start with a cmdkey /list and proceed from there with the appropriate item for cmdkey /delete.

If you add a static entry in the RRAS's ARP table, you won't be able to communicate with any devices with that IP and a different MAC address. Example from a cmd window: arp -s 157.55.85.212 00-aa-00-62-c6-09 Any communication with 157.55.85.212 will only work when its MAC address is 00-aa-00-62-c6-09

Given that you're copying stuff from a case sensitive to case insensitive filesystem a possible cause is files with names that differ only in case (Fred and Fred for example). If it's not that try using the -v option with pscp to get more information on what is being copied. Try to find the minimum set of files which demonstrates the problem. If you ...

Right now we can only guess as to what the problem is, you will need to do more work to help us help you. My current guess though is cosmic rays. Please determine which files have not been copied and examine them for reasons why they have not been copied. Once you know which files haven't copied, you can check things like the permissions or ownerships on ...

Look for EventID: 11724 In case the program was uninstalled using Microsoft Installer you will find events from source "MsiInstaller". I think that no other installer write events to Event Log. Maybe there will be some custom .log files from 3rd party un/installer.

You don't need long pathnames if you chdir into the directory and just use relative paths to rmdir. Or, if you have a POSIX shell installed, or port this to the DOS equivalent: # untested code, didn't bother actually testing since the OP already solved the problem. while [ -d Folder1 ]; do mv Folder1/Folder1/Folder1/Folder1 tmp # repeat more times to ...

Java can also deal with long file paths. And it can do it a lot faster too. This code (which I copied from the Java API documentation) will delete a 1600 level deep directory structure in about 1 second (under Windows 7, Java 8.0) and with no risk of stack overflow since it doesn't actually use recursion. import java.nio.file.*; import ...

Not an answer, but I don't have enough rep for a comment. I once fixed this problem on a then-huge 500MB FAT16 disc on an MS-DOS system. I used DOS debug to manually dump and parse through the directory table. I then flipped one bit to mark the recursive directory as deleted. My copy of Dettman and Wyatt 'DOS Programmers' Reference' showed me the way. I ...

I found a solution... I used an application called IIS Crypto, which changes the registry settings for SSL protocols, ciphers, hashes, key exchangers and the order of SSL ciphers, to set these all to the optimal configuration for PCI compliance.

Thanks to everyone for the useful advice. Straying well into StackOverflow territory, I've solved the problem by knocking up this snippet of C# code. It uses the Delimon.Win32.IO library that specifically addresses issues accessing long file paths. Just in case this can help someone else out, here's the code - it got through the ~1600 levels of recursion ...

Could be a recursive junction point. Such a thing can be created with junction a file and disk utility from Sysinternals. mkdir c:\Hello junction c:\Hello\Hello c:\Hello And you can now go endlessly down c:\Hello\Hello\Hello....

I am not quite certain about what you want to get resolved here, but I'll try to the best of my ability to understand and provide you an overview of what it is you are doing wrong and what you have to do to get this to work properly. Firstly, you mention each bus docks back to the network after a period of X min/hours away and during that time, I assume ...

As it turns out Microsoft has deprecated the IMU Server role on Server 2012! I Ended up going with Pass-Through Authentication on a Linux based OpenLDAP server to pass the user credentials back to AD. The Posix attributes are then maintained in OpenLDAP, negating any dependency on AD.

Edited: Yes you can install your old CAL on your new license server (2012R2) If you want to upgrade the CAL to 2012R2's CAL to serve on login on a new 2012R2 RDS server Buy new's one, you can't upgrade them. If a user try to connect to a 2008 TS, the system try to save on cal, so it try to get a 2008 rdscal, but if he can't, he issue a 2012rdscal. So ...

.NET 4.5 is a drop in binary compatible replacement for .NET 4.0. Higher sub-versions (4.5.1., 4.5.1) are not backward compatible because they add methods, but old programs continue to run.

When you remove the domain controller role, DNS is also likely removed or at least disabled. Make sure that whatever domain controllers you have left are also configured to be DNS servers and that your clients and other servers are configured to use that DNS server.

You need to move GC roles from a server before demoting it from a domain controller to a member server. I suspect that this is the step you missed. Also, the decommissioning process moves any FSMO roles to random other servers, but if this step fails the decommission may continue, so it might be best to move them manually beforehand. This TechNet article ...

You may be able to simplify your life by using a tool like Powerbroker Identity Services or PBIS. They have an open source version available at their website http://www.powerbrokeropen.org/ This is what I am currently using at work to join our linux hosts to AD and it has worked out for me across multiple versions of centos and ubuntu.

I've been troubleshooting this same problem for a few days now and found a solution I haven't seen in any other forums. Hopefully it helps someone.

I have a very similar setup. I found the answer here (Extremely slow file transfers to Hyper-V VM on local machine) With the Broadcom chipset I disabled the virtual queues and all latency disappeared. Make this change on the physical NIC, not the virtual NIC.
