1. Restart the Netlogon service on one of the Domain Controllers OR 2. Run DCDiag /fix OR 3. Manually create the records from the netlogon.dns file from one of the Domain Controllers

Oddly enough you're not the first person to do this. Dell even has a guide on how to register your DC back into DNS. You really should review everything though, a domain controller is the key part of your infrastructure that needs to be consistent and reliable. Renaming a DC is something I've avoided at all costs in the past, and reluctantly executed with a ...

You will need to add a DHCP helper to each of the 3 VLANS in your switch. Configure three IP Scopes on the server one for each subnet associated with each VLAN.

Why are you remoting (invoke-command) to use a cmdlet which has a -computername parameter? Have you tried running the command directly?

Deduplication does work. With deduplication, Size on disk field becomes meaningless. The files are no longer usual "files" but reparse points and don't contain actual data but metadata for dedup engine to reconstruct file. It is my understanding that you cannot get per-file savings as dedup chunk store is per volume so you only get per-volume savings. ...

Well, hating to state the obvious, but here goes. There is a benefit to installing graphics drivers if you're using the graphics card at all, such as because you're running a GUI on the server. The benefit would be improved graphics performance, better stability and usually more options that allow the OS to make full use of the graphics card's capabilities ...

It's unusual for DNS records to be deleted (unless a person deleted them). Usually they are dnsTombstoned, so the records may still appear if using another tool like ADSIEdit even if not visible in DNS Manager or nslookup. There are edge cases where scavenging can cause this (and a lot of other problems if scavenging is not configured properly). ...

If I rename my local windows domain on my domain controller will all of the user accounts associated with the "old" domain name need to be recreated? No. Will the user SIDs still be valid ... Yes. ... and would my users login like normal with newdomain\username instead of olddomain\username and everything will be the way it was as if it ...

I don't think there is any built-in way to do this with RemoteApp yet. There are 3rd party tools that can likely do this (AppSense, etC). You could also look at launching the application via a script that checks if the process is running within the user context and, if not, launches the application (or kills the other process first before launching). A ...

The downsides to installing the driver is that it could cause instability on the server if it's not solid, and like other drivers, will have to be updated/patched as necessary. Other than that it won't hurt.

I found the reason for the problem I also got: The attribute "packageFlags" in ldap (from eg: CN=28fc4a18-4476-48ce-81af-a35890ca8c0e,CN=Packages,CN=Class Store,CN=Machine,CN={FCDD4C11-FBCC-45B4-9655-7A327138A512},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=local) holds as example -1610593168. When I delete the value in adsiedit, it works. So there are two options: ...

I can confirm enabling: 'Allow delegating saved credentials' and 'Allow delegating saved credentials with NTLM-only server authentication' within Group Policy Management Editor for the domain solved the issue.

I had the same problem but a different solution. In group policy – configure FQDN for the RD Connection Broker. (you will also need to enable ‘join rd connection broker) my working config as below. Local Computer Policy/Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Remote Desktop Services/Remote Desktop Session Host/RD Connection ...

Does the system have an iLO meta computer? Look in all iLO event logs, there should be a message indicating that iLO thought the Operating System had "locked up" and so the hardware needed to be reset. In the BIOS settings turn off all WatchDog timer features, otherwise known as Automatic Server Recovery or ASR. A WatchDog timer in the baseboard ...

I'm having the same problem. I can actually disable the 445 in rules. I can also set them to block as well as the explicit block rule. I'm suspecting there is something working differently in 2012 than 2008, I gave my host a different name, disabled the Alfresco SMB server and I can still enumerate default file shares on the host (admin$, C$, Z$). It ...

The MSS Security Settings can be restored with the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager 3. This will actually install on Server 2012, but you need MS SQL Express and the Visual C++ 2010 runtime libs installed. It will also complain about program compatibility, and you may have to re-run the setup routine a second time. Once installed, you will find a ...

Officially, you cannot. (On Server 2012 R2 as of the time of this writing.) Unofficially? Maybe... The "MSS" Group Policy settings are not and never have been included with a default, out-of-the-box installation of Active Directory. They were an add-on developed by a consulting group out in the field, and the settings were deemed so useful that they were ...

1-1 was NEVER relevant. I would say 99% of the installs have a lot more virtual cores in various machines than physical cores - as long as the machines do not NEED the cores (most of the time) that works markedly well. 1-1 assignments only makes sense in VERY special cases (like a VM using up all CPU doing calculations) and is not a standard case at all.

Which version of SCOM are you using? In my 2007 install, its a view not a table. Use adtServer.dvAll5 which contains only the first 5 event params, or adtServer.dvAll which has ALL params, but it slower.

Your problem is not Windows Server 2012, it's the VPS itself. You will need a dedicated server as the VPS can't use the host's GPU, which is required by OpenGL.

check there: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/virtual_active_directory_domain_controller_virtualization_hyperv(v=ws.10).aspx The bug I seen in the past was if the DC die, my hyper-v console refused to open. So, like they told try to not create a single point of failure.

I would use DFS and setup replication between the servers, you can set it for one way or full mesh replication. DFS Blog from MS.

The WDS clients should be getting their DNS server assignments from DHCP. Check that the DNS servers that are being assigned by DHCP from the router are correct.

Try that location too: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar And try with the %AllUsersProfile% variable for the location you named: %AllUsersProfile%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell.lnk %AllUsersProfile%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative ...

It looks like I may have jumped the gun saying that this sort of deduplication is not possible. Apparently, it is totally possible, because in addition to these uncompressed SQL Server backups, I also have VMWare snapshot-level backups of the host VM's. As yagmoth555 suggested, I ran an Expand-DedupeFile on some of these 0-byte files and I got a totally ...

I've put it in the user's (user that runs Puppet) home (%HOMEPATH%). This should be one of the paths RubyGems looks for the gemrc file.

Hyper-V on 2012 and 2012 R2 has built-in replication of virtual machines. Just enable it and replicate the VM's.
