How would this be setup connection wise without forcing all traffic through the domain controller? With site to site VPNs. You'd set up your cloud assets as a site, and then establish a site-to-site VPN between your cloud site and each of your physical sites. An alternate option, that Microsoft uses, but is generally ill-advised (unless you really, ...

It is possible, as outlined in this technet article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn495425.aspx This guide describes the steps for migrating existing DHCP server settings to a server that is running Windows Server 2012 R2. Migration documentation and tools ease the migration of server role settings and data from an existing server to ...

As far as you do not have to change anything for the printer to get the old device's IP address (e.g. change a DHCP reservation) and you want to keep the drivers as they were, the generic answer is: No, you do not need to reconfigure the print server queue or port parameters If you have fancy drivers, they theoretically might somehow be bound to a ...

The Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 .admx files are one and the same, so you should be able to fully manage Windows 8.1 clients from your Server 2012 R2 domain controller's GPO/ADMX store.

I've had that happen on Windows servers when copying monstrously large files, too. I suspect your issue is disk I/O and/or Windows Dynamic Cache. Basically, if your disk isn't fast enough to keep up, Windows caches the writes in memory and may use up to 100% of the memory for this. You can, as of February 2014, manage the size of the cache yourself with ...

In the vast majority of cases it should be fine. That said, you may run into issues if the software/driver for the device relies on any sort of identification state (serial number, page count, et cetera). Basically, you're right; there is no generic conclusive answer because each product is different.

For non-PXE capable devices, the CD/DVD approach is actually something that's built into WDS. It's called a Discover Image. For the "official" Microsoft instructions, see this TechNet article. Their own instructions only tell you how to create an ISO image, but I found this article that explains how to build it by hand for a USB device, or you can use ...

This is actually really easy most UPS's support USB and the Battery appears as a standard HID Compliant battery so say Windows sees it (and I assume Linux) as big laptop battery in effect and the standard OS tools will manage it.

I know this is an old post, but I've come across the same issue and think I may have found a solution I've installed the Hotfix KB2963211 and I do not have this error anymore. It is a Hotfix for AppV 5.0 SP2.

@MDMarra: Thanks for the hints, so I did: The users from O365 can be exported by powershell using Get-MsolUser | Select-Object City, Country, Department, DisplayName, Fax, FirstName, LastName, MobilePhone, Office, PasswordNeverExpires, PhoneNumber, PostalCode, SignInName, State, StreetAddress, Title, UserPrincipalName | Export-Csv ...

From what you're describing, DNS lookups appear to be working ( because you can ping any website, apparently, and that would require a DNS lookup first ) and ICMP traffic also is getting through ( or the ping would fail ). Therefore, it seems likely that the problem is with the HTTP traffic in particular. Port 80, the default HTTP port, may be ...

The binaries should be possible to move. This is according to Microsoft Use your preferred method to copy WSUS update binaries in the WSUS folder from the source server to the destination server (for example, Windows Server Migration Tools, Windows Explorer, Xcopy, or Robocopy). http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh852349.aspx#BKMK_3_1

Try running extend filesystem for the volume in question in diskpart.

You can't recover CA key from offline machine. There are two reasons: Reference to a key is somewhat complicated, therefore it is hard to find the actual private key file name. In your case, private key file is located in: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\Keys even if you success on file name identification, you won't be able to just ...

In the end, this issue was caused by incorrect certificate installation in the Remote Desktop Gateway. When I opened the RD Gateway Manager it gave me options to select a certificate to import and use. It has nothing to do with Network Access Protection, although through this process I ended up adjusting some of my policies anyway to lock it down further.

On the host, you have to create a second virtual network that contains your iSCSI NIC's. Then you can add a NIC to the guest attached to that network. That gives you access to the iSCSI network inside the guest. However, Hyper-V does not support booting guests directly from iSCSI. You have to chainload in to iPXE or something similar. Hopefully you already ...

Like Dan Farrell said, it's probably a problem with HTTP traffic. DNS appears to be working fine (I double-checked myself based on your screenshot): Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com Address: 8.8.8.8 Name: google.com Addresses: 2607:f8b0:4009:80b::2000 216.58.216.96 Because your server is located in a colo center, they might be ...

Starting after 2008 R2 Microsoft changed "Services and Applications" to "Roles". Also in the referenced example, "Under Actions (on the right), click Move this service or application to another node" is now "Under Actions, click move, then either best possible node or select node".

The thumbnail photo is not really related to the users profile as such. It is a property that was added with Exchange2010 to allow for a central, manageable repository for user pictures within outlook. As it was quickly determined that you don't want your IT department to be responsible for hundreds of user photos (you're bringing back bad memories of my ...

You'll need both the Domain Functional Level and the Forest Functional Level to be 2008 R2. To understand the differences, consult this page from Microsoft: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/understanding-active-directory-functional-levels%28v=ws.10%29.aspx You'll note that there's no difference between 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 FFL - so that should be ...

I'm responsibly certain that I've figured this out. 4) Very early in the implementation (early October) site-wide client push was enabled. This was before most of the configuration was complete, including SSL. It wasn't enabled for more than a few hours before I backtracked. Apparently in that short span of time, the .\ccmsetup directory & files were ...

Yeah, I just did it not too long ago actually. You have to change a few settings in RDS and delete a few registry keys and reboot the server in order to rebuild the certificates with a lower encryption level. See here for a full walkthrough: http://www.hjgode.de/wp/2014/03/12/windows-server-2012-rds-and-windows-mobile-connection-error/ I'll include the ...

Have you added the boot images?? (boot.wim) Your DHCP server is providing IP but not the PXE information (TFTP server IP and NBP name) then you "need" the options: [x] 66 Boot Server host name 192.168.1.1 where 192.168.1.1 is the IP address of the NIC that connects to the deployment network [x] 67 BootFile Name boot\x64\wdsnbp.com of-course the ...

This is a workaround for anyone experiencing the same issue, it's not solving the original problem rather just stepping around it. I used MDT 2013 and eventually got it to work. In fairness to MDT it's quite intuitive and I just consulted the documentation once to see where it puts the boot images. In summary, after installation I: Created a deployment ...

Have you made sure that you are not leaking database connection objects? You have to close every database connection that is opened, either explicitly (with try-finally) or with a using { } block. This is a common problem that ASP won't directly tell you about.

The split between Validation and List is intended to direct what result to expect. Validation tests are boolean and return pass/fail, yes/no, up/failed, etc. The List tests return statistical and operational data for review. Microsoft built the tests with Zero Downtime in mind. And for the most part that's true. There are tests which will trigger a ...

After you add the DC role, which also adds the DNS role you should verify that your DNS entries on the server are correct under Adapter Settings > YOUR NIC CARD > Properties > Select IPV4 > Properties button > Your DNS server should be set to 127.0.0.1. Also check under the Advanced button > DNS tab > Make sure 127.0.0.1 is listed. If you are using IPV6 ...
