The SID's and GUID attributes will be retained You will see question marks regarding the NTFS permissions within the directory structure after you force remove the host from the domain. After you rejoin the system it will remap all of the SID's and GUID's and you will see the username associated to the GUID's and SID's again.

If you are using dnsmasq as your DHCP server, you can push the DNS domain, DNS search list, and router to the clients. This should resolve your issue. dhcp-option=3,192.0.2.1 # Router dhcp-option=6,192.0.2. # DNS servers dhcp-option=15,example.com # Domain dhcp-option=119,example.com,com,org # Domain search list (clients ...

You can also load Putty Agent (pageant) and add the private key you generated with Putty for the server. Git recognizes this and uses that for push/pull.

Yes, this is possible. The RDS Easy Print driver won't be installed on the server if the RDS Role isn't installed, so you'll need to install the appropriate printer driver(s) on the server in order for the printer(s) to be redirected.

How are you assigning a public IP to the server? Do you have 2 NIC's on the server? Is it a physical/virtual machine? I need more information to determine what might be happening. It could be possible that there's another machine on your network with the same static private IP address that's causing a conflict. You can ask someone in the NOC or network ...

Windows update may fix your issue. I am assuming that you are trying to connect using the IP address not the DNS name you may have assigned to your public and private IP address. This could avoid any DNS issue. Time or date difference using remote desktop

Possibly a firewall problem? Have you tried: sudo ufw disable Interesting information here and here about Samba LAN performance

Actually, if you're not a domain admin (or account admin), it's relevant: for an account with expired password, you must do an interactive logon to change the password. Otherwise, if you know the other user's password, you may launch a Powershell session with those credentials and use the code that @Ryan Bolger just posted. Or even easier: ...

If you know the LDAP distinguished name (DN) value for the user you can do it with Powershell like this: $oldpass = 'XXXXXXX' $newpass = 'XXXXXXX' $user = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=myuser,OU=MyOU,DC=example,DC=com" $user.ChangePassword($oldpass,$newpass) I should note that this method works even if the password has already expired which is a nice bonus. If you ...

Not sure what Samba version you have, but if it is falling back to SMBv1, then performance will drop drastically as it needs to do several round trips for every file operation. Use wireshark or similar to ensure you are utilizing SMBv2 or later, which is much more efficient. Adjust config or upgrade Samba.

Michael Brown already answered it, just wanted to add: CSV is currently the best practice storage configuration for both Hyper-V, SQL FCI, and SoFS. 99% of the clustered systems I configure for the customers are built on CSV and remaining 1% uses DAG and AlwaysOn AG like BaronSamedi1958 mentioned above. Also,CSV now has a benefit of ODX (Offloaded Data ...

Have you tried it? :) I'm asking because if you click Deny in the GUI it erases the corresponding Allow permission, and vice versa. So what is the default permission with both are empty? Allow. What is the permission when both are checked? This isn't possible. (At this point you're probably wondering why deny even exists. In inherited ...

This link lists the benefits of CSVs https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759255(v=ws.11).aspx q1) can multiple VMs on Node1 run in the same clusterdisk?

CSV is layered on top of some physical shared storage so you can have CSV without shared storage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_Shared_Volumes You can still have a cluster without shared storage / CSV say Exchange DAG and SQL Server AAG. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd979799(v=exchg.150).aspx ...

Quoting from here: A host allocates the memory specified by the Limit parameter to each virtual machine, **unless memory is overcommitted** (emphasis mine).

The way my Big 4 client does it is by creating rules in each client NSG that lets them talk to a specific management server (or servers) for monitoring, alerting, antivirus, updates, etc. Each NSG only allows communication for specific ip addresses for the specific ports required for each VM to talk to the "management" server. So there's no centralized ...

Microsoft haven't really accommodated this and I don't think they are upto date with the current bios changes. This should be seem-less.

I guess you're missing a subfolder there, like in: robocopy C:\dir1 C:\dir2 /E /B /MIR /xf C:\dir1\subdir\*.ext Otherwise, this should work: robocopy C:\dir1 C:\dir2 /E /B /MIR /xf *.ext From my experience, /xf can use the wildcard just for names, and not for paths. I don't think it's possible that mix. As a workaround, you may launch robocopy twice: ...

You must think about that : If you host multiple backup or backup program on the same machine, how it will repond in attack, failure, problems? Google drive and local backup are not the same backup, you will lose "only" the difference between them in case of big problem. You have to choose : a safer backup or a lower cost.

The repeated code can be avoided by using an array and a foreach loop: $logfolder=("D:\Folder\One","D:\Folder\Two") $age=(get-date).AddDays(-3) foreach ($logfolder in $logfolders) { Get-ChildItem $logfolder | where-object {$_.LastWriteTime -le $age -AND $_.Attributes -notlike "*Compressed*"} | ForEach-Object { compact /C $_.FullName } }

Well it looks like Brian's answer was the correct one in suggesting this hostfix. Installing this patch fixed the issue. We can't completely rule out that some other random update fixed the issue as some updates were run while ram was reduced. Although this does look like the likely candidate. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2566205

My goal is that when a user logs on, their desktop, documents everything goes with them. Yes, this functionality is contained in folder redirection and roaming profiles, and using the two is the standard solution to this problem on a Windows domain.

this is fairly trivial in word by simply controlling the regions. with a text file you need either an app or script that opens the file with FILE_APPEND_DATA access, and set permissions on the file with append only. for more details in word, ask on superuser.

I just checked and both of their MX servers respond just fine, which means that they blocked your SMTP server from connecting for some reason. Apparently your server is not on any common blacklist, so they must have elected to block it for other reasons which could be anything, but possibly because your SMTP server's IP doesn't have a PTR record, which ...

Not an advertisement - check out a trial of Acronis Access Connect (used to be called Acronis ExtremeZ-IP). From my research, Microsoft frequently changes it's SMB implementation and even if you get it to work at a sane speed it could 'break' at a later release. Acronis stays on top of this for you, for a hefty cost. ...

For Windows XP, Vista and 7, you only can locked the workstation with the User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization feature.

Turns out, configuring my svn client with any proxy solves the problem. This can be done either on the command line (as in @bahrep's answer) or in the servers configuration file. The proxy can be a free public proxy like 50.97.88.2. P.S. I did also contact visualsvn support as suggested in the below answers. They were prompt and helpful just like here, and ...

The most secure method would be to not connect them directly to the internet at all. You can use a firewall (either external or the system's), only allowing the ports strictly needed to be accessed by the public internet access through the firewall. Set the default to Deny on the public-facing ports.

This was frustrating for me as well until I studied up on why UAC interrupts my traversal of folders that I have inherent access to as an administrator. There is a solution: Leave UAC on In your folder ACLs, add an ACE that gives the security principle "INTERACTIVE" the permissions to traverse folders and list folder contents. If you add that to the ...

It still looks like that the problem is related to your firewall or proxy. Most likely, the problem is caused by some transparent proxy that could be setup by your ISP.

Don't ever manually delete anything in those folders. The first one contains multiple versions of system files and DLLs, so that any program can find the exact version it requires, thus solving the long-dreaded "DLL hell" problem. Unfortunately, this has the side effect of the folder contents growing in size each time any update is installed. But manually ...

You mention you are running VisualSVN v3.3.1. Is there a reason you are using such an old version of VisualSVN? That version is now over a year old and could be missing the bug fix associated with the problem you are having. I'd suggest upgrading to v3.5.3 and then seeing if you still have the issue. VisualSVN is a product you need to be very diligent in ...
