Passive FTP requires that the FTP server have ports opened to it from the external network. Azure VM's use NAT, and thus needs extra configuration in order to support passive FTP. The (rough) checklist: Set the external VIP in the IIS FTP manager Set the port range to use (you might wanna show some moderation here - configuring thousands of ports are not ...

If the servers are on the domain. Local Administrator Password Solution Microsoft is offering the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) that provides a solution to the issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain. LAPS resolves this issue by setting a different, random password for the common ...

As a best practice, you should be running AD DS and AD-Integrated DNS zones (ADI zones) on the same server. This is because the DNS records in ADI zones are replicated using AD DS replication and are stored in the directory, rather than using things like a zone transfer to get records across multiple DNS servers. If you want to use ADI zones for your ...

This is how I currently do installs of Windows with virtio drivers at install: Create the new VM with a genuine Windows installation ISO image. I cannot guarantee that anything will work if you use a pirated copy of Windows. Choose to customize the machine configuration before install. Select the IDE hard drive, and change its type to VirtIO. Click ...

The clearest most succinct answer I could find is: How To See PC Startup And Shutdown History In Windows which lists these event ids to monitor (quoted but edited and reformatted from article): Event ID 6005: “The event log service was started.” This is synonymous to system startup. Event ID 6006: “The event log service was stopped.” This is synonymous ...

Don't specify a filesystem type; mount will figure it out (correctly). And if you're trying to install Windows in a virtual machine, you do not need to (and should not) mount the image at all. Simply provide the path to the ISO when setting up the VM in virt-manager.

Q: Is there anyway I can move the active directory? A: No there isn't.

Do you have backups? (It sounds like the answer is no, but...) If so, restore the 2008 server (to a VM if necessary), add the 2012 machine as a second DC in the old domain, then demote and remove the 2008 server. Then raise the functional level of the domain on the 2012 DC. For more details on this process, see MSDN. This article might also help. I ...

Microsoft has a scenario of transfering FSMO roles from a "dead" server. It means you dont need approval from old fsmo holder or negotiation. New server simply states that now he holds fsmo roles. According to this scenario, you can simply turn off vswbcdc1 and seize roles by svrwbc To seize an operations master role Open a Command Prompt as an ...

Yes, it's no problem to import a VM on Server 2012 R2 which was created in Server 2012. You should also be able to do the reverse, hosting a 2012 R2 created VM on Server 2012. Even VMs created on Server 2008 R2 can be imported into 2012 R2

Looks like when you added the static route you added it on the wrong interface on machine 1. If you don't specify an interface, Windows picks one by itself and I'm not sure what it uses to choose but I've never seen it choose the right one. route delete 192.168.1.1 should do it. Secondly, you have an invalid static route on machine 2. Deleting both of these ...

you need to capture your vm as an image template and use it to deploy all the machines you want from it. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-capture-image-windows-server/

See this bug: https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=7897 It looks like the cifs module needs to be patched in order to properly distinguish different reparse points. Since the bug is still open though, it doesn't look like the CentOS team has done anything to fix it. If you're feeling adventurous, the bug does have a link to a mailing list thread with a ...

With some assistance from jscott I compared the Registry Keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup to the ones in his infrastructure and found them to be inconsistent. Values like IISTargetWebSiteIndex was set as 'WSUS Administration' IIS site's id but the the PortNumber value was set to 80 which was bound via *:80 to the ...

Once a server is promoted to a DC (i.e the DC role is installed), the "default" administrator account you mention no longer exists. The Administrator account now exists in the domain. Any account created on the DC from now on will exist only on the domain. The DC no longer has the concept of "Local Users". The fundamental reason that a DC should have other ...

This is a bit old, but for future reference you should have run: DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula Using /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter instead of /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenterEval because you need to convert from an Eval version to a "regular" version. Reference: Windows Server 2012 ...

The best way for you to get around this is to use smart links for automatic realm detection. Chances are you're directing users to O365 portal which does realm detection via username box (you likely dont need to type anything in the password box do just bla@yourdomain.com in username and it'll forward you to your sso/adfs login page [wap] on focus change to ...

As you have discovered on your own, the service is a core component of the Windows networking stack, and thus several other services depend on it; it's really best to leave it running. If all your NICs are configured with static IP addresses, there really is no problem at all with this setup; the DHCP client service is only actually used when a NIC requires ...

To be able to simply connect with Remote Desktop to manage the server, go in through the Hyper-V console, right-click on the Start button on the desktop, choose System, then click Remote Settings on the left side and change as needed. You will be allowed (and licensed) to have up to two simultaneous connections for server management. If you are trying to ...

You have to have connectivity and the best way to do that is with a VPN. Assuming you have the VPN up and running then PHOENIX has to be configured to use a DNS server that is part of your domain and is Active Directory integrated so the zone for the domain has all the necessary information. PHOENIX should be configured to use AD DNS servers exclusively. ...

Since you are in effect moving the storage pool and its storage spaces to a new server a TechNet article titled "Windows Server 2012: How to Import a Storage Pool on Another Server" should apply. A summary of the steps: Make the disks available to the server, Make the storage pool read-write. Attach the virtual disk. Online the resulting logical disk(s).

Nothing to do with WSUS. You're probably seeing this due to you have View > Advanced selected. InfrastructureUpdate object holds the infrastructure master for the domain. Infrastructure-Update class https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms682283%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

You could also use PsPasswd from the SysInternals suite. PsTools tend to have a few dependencies (like maybe a default share or something) but they're usually pretty stable. It's worth noting it does send passwords in the clear. I don't know if the other solution does too.

IMO (and I don't have any empirical data) running a SQL based application over a WAN connection rarely works well from a performance perspective. There are multiple layers that may be causing the problem for WAN users that aren't going to be readily apparent to LAN users; application latency, SQL encryption latency, operating system latency, network latency, ...

Yes, the licenses are assigned as they log in. There is no way to affix a license to a specific device, and definitely not beforehand.

I suspect that the problem is due to Enhanced Session Mode being enabled. When so, I'm pretty sure that the Virtual Machine Connection console uses RDP to connect to the VM, which requires the connecting user to be a member of the local Remote Desktop Users group, the local Administrators group or to have the appropriate user rights and RDP protocol ...

Adding a forwarder at runtime does not automatically invalidate any queries that are currently sitting in cache for that domain. This includes negatively cached records that returned NXDOMAIN when queried. The more frequently the record is being requested, the higher the probability that the record has been cached recently. If it's critical that the ...

I don't see why it wouldn't support them or any documentation to prove otherwise. You may have to do some configuration to get it working, a la http://serverfault.com/a/646177/240516.

If that is a Hyper-V server as you indicate, I would not use any of the keys for the host but install Hyper-V server there (which is free anyway). But if you do want to do it like that - yes. With a limited number of standard licenses you basically must install keys in every guest and make sure you follow the rules as said in the licenses. In case of 2012 ...
