Assuming that this DC is also the DNS server for the AD domain, the DNS server will register every ip address that the DNS server is configured to listen on. If you don't want it to register those ip addresses then uncheck those ip addresses in the properties pages of the DNS server.

It is possible, but it's not like you describe it. You can add a CNAME DNS record, known as an alias. This just points a second name to the original server's DNS name. So the server does not think about itself as being ServerB and ServerA, but DNS clients will find the server's IP address using either name. You are better off using the name of the file ...

Disabling anything in the registry only affects what uses the Windows components for RC4 (IIS/IE). IIS Crypto is not related either - as you are not using IIS. But you are using the node.js built in https.createServer. All settings related to RC4 will then happen within node.js (as node.js does not care about the registry). Newer better ciphers has been ...

You may use the msg command on Windows Server 2012 R2 to trigger a popup message dialog box on a remote computer. The syntax is as follows: msg {<UserName> | <SessionName> | <SessionID>| @<FileName> | *} [/server:<ServerName>] [/time:<Seconds>] [/v] [/w] [<Message>] For example, to send "Hello" to all logged on ...

Active Directory has been historically compliant to RFC 2253 for naming conventions; I don't think that has changed for Windows 2012 (info about Windows 2003: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc776019%28v=ws.10%29.aspx ) The RFC lists the following characters: o one of the characters ",", "+", """, "\", "<", ">" or ";" That list ...

Ask your server administrator directly... Depending on your server and your applications there are several logs that could possibly contain bits of information as to what a person was doing. If you have a SQL server, he might have ran indexing jobs. If you have a Vsphere environment he might have updated some of the templates or looked at the resource and ...

In order to get dskprobe.exe AKA Disk Probe by Microsoft, you need to get an old OS package and do a few manual things to make it available to you. (1) Download the Windows XP SP2 Support Tools from here. (2) Extract the contents of the EXE (WindowsXPKB838079SupportToolsENU. exe) to a location on "C:\" such as "C:\tools" or any place you might like. (3) ...

This right here will do ya: Event ID 2013 (Disk Is At Or Near Capacity) not getting logged To summarize, make sure you're logging disk space alerts in your event log: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Parameters] "DiskSpaceThreshold"=dword:0000000a "LowDiskSpaceMinimum"=dword:00000000 (You must add both of those, not ...

HP uses special firmware on their drives. Controllers may or may not recognize an non-HP drive. I have had some work but in many cases the drive is not recognized. An HP drive may clearly be a Western Digital or other brand but the controller will fail to "see" the drive as a valid HD In some cases we were able to use the array config utility to get the ...

The trick here is to not have Windows Update do the install via the Automatic Updates mechanism. You can set it to automatically download, but for automatic installs, there's no way to stop the reboot timer from triggering unless there's a user logged into the system, such as with the No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates ...

After joining a client to the domain you can still login with a local account. And yes you can also share folders with non-domain computers. This is all a matter of how access rights are set on the share.

You can do an "install from media" promotion on server01. To quote from TechNet's description (I edited out references to 2008 because you're using 2012): IFM has the following requirements: You cannot use IFM to create the first domain controller in a domain. The media that you use to create additional domain controllers must be taken from a ...

RC4 is not disabled by default in Server 2012 R2. It only has "the functionality to restrict the use of RC4" build in. You will have to set the required registry keys by your own: The RC4 cipher can be completely disabled on Windows platforms by setting the "Enabled" (REG_DWORD) entry to value 00000000 in the following registry locations: • ...

There are several points in the question. First, NTAuth store is used to store *issuing* CA certificates that are eligible to issue logon certificates (when client certificate is mapped to a user account in Active Directory during authentication). If CA certificate is presented in this store, it will be able to issue certificates that can impersonate any ...

So, I have resolved this after coming to so many blanks. It turns out that there was an external change that I was not aware of - the house move coincided with a new internet connection and thus a new router. The new router seems to be providing IPv6 details via DHCP even though IPv6 is disabled in its DHCP settings. Even though each and every server was ...

You need to add the PublishAddresses registry value: Key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters Registry Value: PublishAddresses Registry Value Type: REG_MULTI_SZ Registry Value Data:<IP addresses> http://blogs.technet.com/b/ad/archive/2009/04/22/dcs-and-network-address-translation.aspx

The name of an Active Directory domain is only for internal usage, thus you could name it anything you want; however, in an Active Directory environment, the domain name also acts as the DNS suffix for all computers in the domain, and the domain controllers act as internal DNS servers which are (or at least behave as they were) authoritative for that DNS ...

I managed to resolve this. It turns out someone else had a similar question: IPv6 with IPv4 over RRAS SSTP VPN from Client that only has IPv4 access Turns out its because the client doesn't have a properly configured route back to the VPN with IPv6, so the traffic has no where to go. I needed to add a static route at the router level. I changed my RRAS ...

You certainly will lose and need to re-create your shares, but the data on your CSV should not be affected. CSVFS is (mostly) a regular (NTFS) file system with a different filesystem driver stack (see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2013/12/02/10473247.aspx for further info), removing it from the list of cluster shared volumes and adding to ...

I assume IIS is already installed on your server. Part of IIS is the kernel mode driver http.sys which does the actual listening on the ports 80 and 443. Because it is a kernel mode drive, it runs within the system process. http.sys forwards http requests to the user-mode part of IIS. So you should be good to go.

I thought I'd provide a more generic Linux router scenario for users not using pfSense but a Linux based router (in my case DD-WRT). ip -6 route add xxxx:xxx:xxxx:xxxx::/64 via xxxx:xxx:xxxx:xx::x dev br0 The configured IPv6 prefix in RRAS IPv6 tab needs to be added after the add The IPv6 LAN IP address of the RRAS box is the via (essentially the ...

I was never able to find a solution to this problem. I decided to just let the sync run its course. It took 3 weeks and the backlog grew by a few hundred thousand files during the syncing time, but I didn't see any other choice.

I think the registry configuration only affects browsers, so you would need to set your ciphers in node.js. This is what worked for me: var agent = new https.Agent({ "key": key, "cert": cert, "ciphers": 'EECDH+AES128:EECDH+3DES:EDH+3DES:!SSLv2:!MD5:!DSS:!aNULL', "honorCipherOrder": true });

Using Powershell. Here is an example of changing the network profile of a network interface called Ethernet to "Private." This is a one line command. Set-NetConnectionProfile -InterfaceAlias Ethernet -NetworkCategory Private This will work on any local computer with Powershell installed.

I did exactly what you did - I was adding a new node to an SQL 2014 AlwaysOn cluster and I forgot to uncheck the "Add Storage" button at the end of the wizard. To get the storage back, and your cluster online: Remove all the disks "Cluster Shared Volumes" (Right-click, Remove from Cluster Shared Volumes) Remove all the disks from the cluster completent ...

70% is simply the default warning. A 3-column parity space requires free space on at least 3 drives in order that you can write data to it. You are being asked to add 2 new disks because pretty soon only one disk will have free space, not the required 3. You can manually rebalance by moving data off the parity space, and then moving it back on. When it ...

Just go through the normal promotion steps and add the machine to an existing domain. Once it has been promoted go into your AD users and computes, Right click the domain and select Operations Masters. Change these to your DC01 and you are done

If the domain controllers were not able to communicate when you demoted DC01, then you need to take the followings steps. You can google the specifics of each step. 1) Use DC02 to seize the FSMO roles (assuming they belonged to DC01 before the demotion). 2) Clean the orphaned DC from active directory 3) Promote DC01 to a domain controller 4) Move the 5 ...
