Take a look at WANem - The Wide Area Network emulator. You can set it up as a VM with a bootable CD-rom drive. Once booted, the web interface will let you use it as a proxy to slow down connections, drop packets, induce jitter, latency, and a number of other cool tricks.

You don't give out too many useful information about what Operating System you are using, but these procedures will be similar for Vista/7/8/8.1: To find out what groups you are a member of: Log on to your virtual machine (assuming it is joined to the domain) with your AD user account Open up a Command Prompt Type in whoami /groups and hit enter The ...

There is no .NET 4.5 requirement for SQL Server 2008. SQL Server 2008 pre-dates .NET 4.5 by quite a few years. Additionally, I have many SQL Server 2008 R2 installations that do not have this requirement. I suspect you are not actually installing SQL Server 2008. Where did you get the installers from? What was their download links? The correct download link ...

Please go to the httpd.conf and change Listen 80 to Listen 8080 or any port. Remember to allow that port through firewall and you have restart the Apache service not the system.

This is likely down to ATA / AHCI support. On the baremetal computer you're attempting to install, open the bios settings dialog and check to see if you can reconfigure SATA to be ATA instead of AHCI. XP did not ship with AHCI support, nearly every modern computer comes with this feature and the option is generally enabled.

I'm fairly certain that an NTBACKUP from Windows XP isn't compatible with Windows 7. You probably need the Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2. The utility restores backups that are made on Windows XP and on Windows Server 2003 to computers that are running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 are the first Windows versions to come with PowerShell installed, by default. Windows PowerShell 2.0 needs to be installed on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista only. It is already installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. Ignoring the horribleness of installing XP SP2 in this day and age, if not having PowerShell ...

You only need to use Vmware Converter (http://www.vmware.com/products/converter/) to create an image so you can use it on other Vmware Platforms (vSphere, Workstation,...). There are a lot of guides on the net about how to use the software. This one may help you: ...

The easiest approach to this is to include a RunOnce task or script to simply delete those favorites from their location in the filesystem under Documents and Settings (after syspreping, of course). The next easiest approach is to use a Group Policy to strip them (what we do, for the record). If neither of those is appropriate or workable, the easiest ...

Make sure the file is not being previewed by Windows Explorer. A file in the Preview Pane of Windows will lock a file and mark it as in use.

The clock on the Windows XP computer was out of sync with the domain controller clock, after running NET TIME \\MyDomainControllerComputerName /SET /Y from the command prompt on the Windows XP computer, I was able to locate the computer by name in Windows Explorer.

I think that you could try downloading an offline installer from the links provided here: http://appsonpc.com/download-ie8-offline-installer-windows-xp Since they link to microsoft.com, I presume that they are safe to install. As safe as IE8 is, anyway ;-) Good luck!

As both Michael Hampton and Journeyman Geek mentioned in comments (I would have been happy to upvote and accept either as a answer), Windows Update still works on XP, and automatically updates IE to version 8. I tried this and it worked. However, Windows Update is not necessarily in the Start menu. You can reliably get to the Windows Update page by going ...

PowerShell is not installed with Windows XP. You have to manually install it afterwards.

If you are using the windows7 PC by default the anonymous samba user is disabled. So to mount the local windows shared folder onto the QNX(any linux based systems) system you need to change the two registry key values from the below path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM->CurrentControlSet->Control->Lsa Highlight the Lsa. On the right side you can see the ...

This is a bit late but We had a similar issue where it was taking about 10 minutes to log in. if the network cable was unplugged and the PC rebooted then it logged in right away. In the end we found it was a printer driver trying to be installed and needed user input that wasn't possible because they were not logged in yet. try turning on Verbose ...

Recovery is easy - just use a disk imaging tool with a live medium and recover the backup file to the system. Running the system of the backup disk will be more difficult, but you really don't want to do this anyway - this is a backup medium, not meant for running live. Also: Windows XP as in the product out of support?

netsh interface ipv4 add neighbors "Local Area Connection" 10.1.1.1 12-34-56-78-9a-bc this will create a static arp entry that survives reboots. be careful adding the routes though, as you may not be able to remove them without a hotfix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2718830

The Interface number in decimal is displayed with route print. Look at the top of the output under Interface List. Another way is to use arp -a and make note of the hexadecimal number, eg: C:\>arp -a Interface: 192.168.1.28 --- 0xc Internet Address Physical Address Type <snip> Both are accepted after the if argument in route.exe, ...

I'm going to add to Mac's answer that yes, this definitely works to set up the ODBC connection and it does work for a while. Probably for as long as the Kerberos authentication stays active. Unfortunately, this isn't the permanent authentication I would prefer for a System DSN. Here is the batch file that I use to launch odbcad32.exe: net use ...

Rather than trying to mess with the domain GPO for local users (which will never work), setup a local security policy with the items you want, then duplicate it to the other computers.

You should employ Group Policy to be able to control and secure your schools computers. As for them logging into RDP on the Server 2012, can you not just publish the software as a RemoteApp? If they don't need a full desktop and they can open their files from the software, I think this would be a better solution. ...

Check the vmware syslog, an easy way is move the /scratch/log in advanced configuration to a datastore then download the syslog using the file manager in vsphere. Can also use the syslog collector http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2011/07/setting-up-the-esxi-syslog-collector.html If you have guest specific problems and the hosts are fine, then it points ...

Try executing the following command mount 192.168.0.1://home/files Z: This should work for you. If you want to mount the root folder, then execute the command mount 192.168.0.1:/! Z: PS: As for why this works, have no idea, I am a total NFS noob... If anyone knows please share it in the comments.
