If your client is running Windows 7 then you have to run the open vpn clients with admin rights otherwise the routing tables would not get populated and you may not be able to ping the hosts on the server network.

This does not answer OPs question entirely, feel free to post a better answer! This is already answered on Stack Overflow.

I found the answer. The problem are the spaces in the directory name, it messes up with mysqldump. In order to have a directory with spaces in the name simply wrap the path in double quotes like this: C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.6.17\bin\mysqldump -umyuser -pmypassword mydbname > "C:\Web Design\backup.sql" Now it works, hope this helps someone with the ...

As described in this Technet article this is a side effect of UAC. It can be avoided by adding an entry to the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System with name EnableLinkedConnections, type DWORD and value 1. This will make network connections created under regular user credentials available to processes run ...

Using MAAS 1.7.6 you have to click on Clusers, then on the cluster name, then edit the interface. Then in Management you can add DHCP and DNS and the DHCP particulars. Save the interface. Check that the process dhcpd shows up in your list of processes.

Windows Resource Monitor appears capable of capturing local traffic. Under Network -> Processes with Network Activity Send and Receive local traffic between local processes shows up fine. I'm still wondering how this is possible. I think it's probably tracking read and write calls (like truss/strace on Unix/Linux).

Not a tested solution but: for the time your machine is not in the domain, you could set a dns alias like "internal-ntp" for your pdc, and set /manualpeerlist:internal-ntp.yourdomain.local, so in case the NTP-server role will move to a different machine, you would just have to change the dns entry. as far as i know, as soon as the machine will enter the ...

EDIT: I just reread and realized that you were not the one writing the .Net application, which invalidates most of what I just suggested. I'll leave it up there in case some of it is useful. But will come back if I come up with other thoughts. The administrative privileges are what really throws things off. It is pretty hard to make something that an admin ...

I don't think you would run into the LMHOSTS file these days. It is (was) used for name to ip and name to service resolution in the days of NetBIOS. LMHOSTS is in function similar to the hosts file but also, as said, can map services unlike the hosts file. The syntax differs and is exemplified in the default LMHOSTS file. Just as the hosts file was ...

How about this : set JAVA=path\to\the\desired\jdk set PATH=%JAVA%;%PATH% But remember that everytime you change/create an env variable, you'll see these changes only in the current cmd.exe opened. If you want to change your jdk system wide thanks to a script, I'm not sure this is so easy on Windows.

I'm not sure if this will cover all you need but... At the place I am recently employed, company-issued laptops (which are running Windows) are required to be able to access the company VPN. Namely, VPN access is only allowed using company-issued laptops. Users are not admins on their local machine. Therefore, company IT personnel do all the ...

Depending on your budget (which you haven't stated) I think a good solution for you could be that of a HP Microserver with some extra RAM as a domain controller? That way you have an extremely portable server with the ability to push out updates and lock down the laptops with group policy? For that amount of laptops the Microserver will easily be able ...

if I understand you correctly, you have a Linux-PXEServer and a Win-Controller with DHCP/DNS? If it is so, its mostly simple. You have to say the DHCP, where your bootimage is and how it is named. We are running at school such a solution with FOG in a Windows domain and it works without any problems. You have only one thing to mention. There is an obsolete ...

If you are using VMware, a much better way is to use the tools built into VMware to reclaim any unused space on the virtual drive. I used this to reduce the size of the virtual disk from 28 gigabytes down to 13 gigabytes. Your mileage may vary. When I tried using sdelete -z c:, it actually increased the size of the virtual drives to 30 gigabytes, which was ...

You won't be able to see hardware details from your VM instance. This is a discussion you should have with your provider. If stability is an issue, complain or leave. Look at your contract. If the SLA isn't being met, complain or leave. These businesses thrive on the bet that people don't want to own/maintain hardware. But at hosting-scale, you're ...

There are a few windows tools that can help a lot here.

It would be possible to automatically connect each laptop to a VPN network. All you would need is an VPN server / router. And some configuration for the laptop to connect to vpn on logon. After that you could simply RDP to it.

This is the perfect use case for Microsoft Intune. While it is primarily known as an MDM solution, it also has PC management capabilities as well, such as app deployment and patch management. It's also completely cloud-based and is licensed on a per-device per-month basis, so it can scale as you grow. If you're already managing internal devices with System ...

Using memdisk of course you cannot pass parameters to your winpe.iso if you decide to boot your Win PE "WDS style" (pxeboot.n12/bootmgr.exe/BCD etc) you also cannot pass unattended parameters to your winpe.wim therefore you have only one choice: a custom application taking control right after winpe.wim is booted providing the freedom of retrieving (menu) ...

I know this doesn't solve your whole problem but for versions of Windows Server since 2008, and in cases where you only need the server to reboot once, you don't need to bother with scheduled tasks. The built in shutdown command lets you specify a delay in seconds using the the -t parameter. Eg, to restart in 12 hrs (or 43200 seconds): shutdown -r -t ...

It is a bug in WDS. When you approve a UEFI device it gives the wrong permissions. If you look under the security permissions on the computer object you will see it has set deny for Domain Admins against the 'Change password' and 'Reset password'. Remove the deny for both of these and you are good to go. You will need to do this for each UEFI computer you ...

The Hyper-V machine that I've configured uses an External Virtual Switch that has a dynamic IP, but only when the box is initially brought up by "vagrant up" - if I destroy the box and remake, I get a new IP, but until then, it stays the same. Setting it up like this gives my host machine, and the VM internet access, and I can hit my vm from my host to ...

I went throught this article to get a better understanding of what your configuration is. Your local computer (or the server from which the tunnel will be initiated) should be listed in "Endpoint 1" as well "local Tunnel Computer". The "remote tunnel computer" box should have the IP address of your router where the tunnel is terminated. The servers that you ...

In server 2012, IE management is done via IEAK (Internet Explorer Administration Kits) You need to download and install the kit onto every domain controller for each version of IE that you want to manage.

Some bad advice is given in the Superuser answer linked in the comments. There is absolutely no reason to setup a domain to only get time sync working. It would be pointless to setup a virtual environment to run a NTP server. Windows Time Service is automatically working in domain mode and in those cases you should be very carefully when playing around as ...

You can safely disable anything that you do not need. For example, does your server get its IP address and gateway settings from DHCP? If Yes -> You can not disable DHCP. If No -> You can disable DHCP. Do you need your server to response to pings? If no, feel free to disable ICMP rules. Do you use IPv4 and not IPv6 at all? Feel free to disable all IPv6 ...

Try http://www.mltek.co.uk/archivemanager.aspx. I was searching the web for the same kind of solution and I found them. Looks like they do a really cheap 'lite' version that can move the files somewhere else (using a UNC path), then even leave seamless stubs behind so it looks like the files are still there. Could be worth a shot.

As of Server 2012 and onwards windows prevents you installing both services on the same server successfully. We tried with 2012 and ended up with a partially installed set of services, as it lets you start the install but it crashes part way through. That is particularly annoying for what it does to the rest of the domain, with a partially installed DC ...

This is not possible with server versions after OS X Server Snow Leopard. Since the first release of the 'simple' server in OS X Lion, binding Windows clients to OS X Server is not possible anymore. For authentication a client such as pGina can be used though, however it is not officially supported.

This MySQL forum post looks like a success story, although a bit old. I remember a similar story of mine, on Linux. Windows platform doesn't matter here, MySQL data files structure is similar. No command line work is really needed. I assume your Ibdata file is not damaged in any way. AFAIK you don't need ib_logfile? files at all, the forum post confirms ...

Nope. The "Hide extensions for known file types" is a preference that you can set via Group Policy. And if it's only a preference, then the user can undo it. Basically, as long as the user has write/modify access to the file, they can rename it to whatever they wish. It's not a Group Policy thing, but an NTFS thing. The only way to really prevent a user from ...

So this is a bit of a stretch, but have you looked at something like AutoIt (https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/) for this?

Have no idea if this will actually work, but that's the only way I ...

Why do you think you are doing it wrong? AD GPO is perfect for maintaining machine configuration even when you have machines exempted from specific policies. SCCM is the right way to distribute software and can be used to maintain config as well. Using the login script for one-time fixes might work, but you do need to clean up (out of sight is out of ...

It is my understanding that neither 2012 R2 nor Server 2016 support dual certificates. You can only assign a single certificate to a binding. Set up a second binding and point your legacy devices to it.
