Start diagnosting from CAPI2 (Eventlog -> Applications and Services -> Microsoft -> CAPI2 -> Operational -> Enable). There are tons of things you can miss. First diagnose on client side, second on server side. There also was an issue with SChannel when you have too many trusted Root CAs installed on your system.

If both servers are in domain, you should set up the Remote Desktop Conection Broker and make a Remote Desktop Server Farm The Broker's work is to forward users to mostly free servers. It is not a 'weak link'. The connection process goes like this: User discovers IP address from DNS name. This DNS name is associated with all servers in your farm, so, you ...

If you have ordinary FTP (not FTPS), and you have guarantee that in some period (almost) all users will logon this FTP, you should use some network sniffer to sniff out FTP passwords (because they are transmitted in plaintext) I've googled for popular toolmaker Nir Sofer's SniffPass tool. Maybe this will work. Or you can use WireShark with some filters and ...

When starting nslookup, typically it will immediately display the default DNS server. I would confirm the output is what you expect it to be. If it is and you aren't able to do lookups (DNS timeout, etc), I would attempt a telnet connection to port 53 of your DNS server. If the connection isn't established, you know you have a network problem. If it is ...

see this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244331/en-us# Gratuitous ARP requests must be forwarded across networks so that all devices receive the updated MAC-to-IP address mappings. Contact your hardware manufacturer for information about how to change your switch or router's configuration so that gratuitous ARP requests are passed to all networks.

Doing what you're asking would create a HU (high-unavailabilty) environment. You basically can't mount the same drive on two different servers at the same time, because each server expects that it has complete control over the physical volumes it has mounted. As soon as both servers start accessing the disk at the same time, serious problems are going to ...

You can audit the Local GPO set on a system using a tool provided by someone from Microsoft called "LGPO_Utilities" Read more here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/fdcc/archive/2008/05/07/lgpo-utilities.aspx This tool can be used to set Local GPO, but it can also be used to export all current Local GPOs to a text file. I use this tool to set Local GPO for ...

From a technical standpoint, NTFS can store about 4 billion files per filesystem. Then again, with the amount of files you plan to store you need to think through your architecture more carefully; things like taking backups can take a needlessly long time with that many files, if done wrong.

Just make sure you install PHP through the web platform installer, I had the same issue and this resolved what I needed.

It does, yes. It even installs and runs on Server 2008 R2. Having said that, the service itself has been deprecated, so you're going to run into out-of-support issues with DSML even if you move it to a newer OS platform. The current Microsoft solution for communication with AD over web protocols is ADWS (Active Directory Web Services), which you will ...

As joeqwerty pointed out, Sysprep does not remove data per se. It will reset the Administrator user account, including data stored in the Administrator user’s folders, etc. however. If this is what happened, the environment should be largely intact, including Windows Server Backup functionality, so yes, you will be able to restore from backup. You will not ...

I couldn't find a way to make the server itself tell the Windows installer how to see the disk, but by talking to @joeqwerty in the comments I ended up following this course, which worked: Download the latest drivers from Dell: I did that from my product's support page, going on "Drivers & Downloads", category "Driver for OS Deployment". There was one ...

Ok so turns out that Microsoft's definition of a site-to-site VPN involves 2 RRAS servers chatting to each other and ignoring their respective LAN clients. My solution was partially obtained using this concept of a hub-spoke model: http://aleyshon.blogspot.com/2013/04/site-to-site-vpn-with-windows-server.html The secret sauce is in setting static IPv4 ...

You should enable Access Based Enumeration on your shares. From Microsoft: Access-based enumeration displays only the files and folders that a user has permissions to access. If a user does not have Read (or equivalent) permissions for a folder, Windows hides the folder from the user’s view. This feature is active only when viewing files and folders in a ...

Get a CNAME record for newtest.mycompany.com as "newtest.mycompany2.com" on your internal DNS. Get a DNS hosting for mycompany2.com, add an A record for newtest.mycompany2.com to what ever IP address you want returned.

You have 2 options add test.mycompany.com NS Records for the public name servers. or add test.mycompany.com as a Stub zone. You also need to duplicate the A records for your NS servers locally if they are in the same zone. Stub Zones Zone Delegation

The issue it sounds like you are facing is that your VHDs are not ready to be used with Hyper-V. There is no boot loader in the VHDs taken by Windows Backup. You're correct that you need to to a physical to virtual (P2V) conversion on them before you work through the article you've linked to. System Center Virtual Machine Manager achieves this but unless ...

Just disable the second NIC, join the domain, and restart. Then you can re-enable the other NIC.

I'm honestly uncertain this will help, but I'm going to suggest manually installing Windows Update Client version 7.6. The only times I've seen updates fail silently like this were either the update client or a failed prerequisite, so if that doesn't help, maybe update the dot net framework manually? My instinct says update client, though.

You might try adding the website as a trusted site. By white listing certain sites, security settings are reduced when visiting them. Depending on how many "sites" a webpage tries to access, you may need to do this several times. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of ...

If all drives but 1 for a VD are foreign, you should import. This should NOT affect the config on the remaining drives of the 2nd VD. Still, don't trust the RAID card 100% - make a note of exactly which drives are participating in the 2nd VD in case a "retag" does become necessary. Recreating the config on the problem drives is possible too if the import ...

Your best best would be to call Dell, I personally don't have enough experience with the Dell perc to confidently tell you "yeah just do that". If the systems out of warranty, they still may help you since its a question and not a HW replacement. Other than that, me, yes I would import the foriegn config, but I'm probably a little braver than you :)

As Zoredache has said, your problem is UAC while logged on to the server. You can run Notepad as Administrator (find the Notepad icon in the Start menu, Right-click it and select Run as administrator), then open the file in question via File -> Open. This will allow you to save the file to it's current location. An alternative would be to create a ...

With split DNS (internal and external DNS providers both serving the same domain) there's no automatic way to have your internal DNS answer for what it knows and forward the rest. You can either keep them in sync manually by creating all the public records in your internal DNS as well as external, or by delegating them (one name at a time) from your ...

1st, this is not forwarding, forwarding means these records are hosted on another server and you would setup a conditional forwarder to that server. You are creating a local zone that the 2008 Server is the authority. IN 2008 Server, create a zone for the exact name of the hostname you want to resolve internally. newtest.mycompany.com then create an A ...

I would avoid using multiple sites/virtual directories pointing to the same physical folder. Especially if you're planning on adding more clients/sites, deployment/config changes will take down all of the sites depending on when/how you update. Having separate sites gives you an advantage of being able to deploy one at a time, for example to test a new ...

Honestly, 100 computers (five locations with 20+ each) really aren't very many. You could write a script in batch or powershell to add them to the new domain remotely. (PowerShell 3's version of add-computer allows you to add a remote computer to the domain.) No, the part that makes me nervous is the five identically named DCs in identically named ...

Problem solved! Both Zabbix Agent and Server have a "Timeout" parameter which specify how long Zabbix will wait for a check to finish (external, SNMP). The default value is 3s and it takes the Zapache Shell Script a little over 4s to execute, so one needs to adjust both timeouts to accomodate that. If you just adjust at the agent (as I have done at ...

Mounting shared drives is a user-level issue, so your best chance is to write a user login script that checks the current hostname, computer account, or other identifying feature of the host to see whether to mount //server/user$ or https://server.example.com/user.

In conf.d/ssl.conf, conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf, or wherever else you have your mod_ssl settings configured: SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3 SSLv1 isn't a thing in mod_ssl. The All directive is a shortcut for +SSLv2 +SSLv3 +TLSv1 +TLSv1.1 +TLSv1.2, hence the manual removal of v2 and v3.

It sounds like you're not provisioning your virtual disks with enough capacity to begin with. Windows in particular tends to grow the base OS footprint quite a bit due to hotfixes over the course of several years. The newest versions of Windows (8.1/2012 R2) mitigate this to a certain extent with some default scheduled tasks that cleanup superseded update ...

If you want your Windows server to act as a router, you'll need to install and configure the Routing and Remote Access Server role; otherwise, the server will be able to talk to both networks, but will not forward traffic between them. Once the role is installed, you only need to enable "LAN and WAN routing"; there is no need for other features like VPN or ...

So, as suggested, I will post the link that I used as inspiration to solve my problem. http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/WindowsGuide/troubleshooting-windows-instances.html#rdp-issues The steps that I took, however were a bit different, but the context is the same, mount the disk in a machine, open the registry hive, edit, pray, boot the old ...

You need to add an A record for newtest.mycompany.com to your internal DNS server. Your internal DNS server is authoritative for the mycompany.com DNS zone (from it's perspective). It's not going to forward requests for records it doesn't have or can't find in the mycompany.com DNS zone to your external DNS server.

VMware Workstation host-only networking provides a network connection between the virtual machine and the host computer using a virtual Ethernet adapter that is visible to the host operating system.

remove the gateways from the NIC's on both servers - As they are host only adapters I'm presuming you don't need the internet and ensure all firewalls are disabled then it should work.

Any luck trying this?
