What is being backed up? Files, system state, SQL, Exchange? Has there been any changes in the quantity of data? Have there been any permissions changes that might cause the application to hang? Are there any issues with the storage that is being backed up? How about the storage you're backing up to? RAID issues can cause slow reads, for example. ...

Windows TCP implementation is fairly opaque and you will frequently find that not all registry options are supported in all versions of Windows or are overwritten by some other setting. For reference, when Acknowledgement packets are sent for more than 2 full sized data packets, this is referred to as a Stretch ACK which you can read about here: RFC 2525.

Create a custom fact that tests the presence of the file on the host and use that to conditionally include the class. generate only runs on the master, it's not invoked on each agent.

In the FOR command you need escape not only the parenthesis, but the mod (percent) as well. The parens are escaped with ^, the percent by %. Note that this will only work within a batch file, not the command line. FOR /F %%i IN ('powershell ^(new-timespan -start 01/01/2000 -end ^(get-date^)^).days %% 14') DO ( SET doc=%%i ) ECHO %doc%

Apparently there is difference in level of User Account Control sensitivity. Also, I think I've seen a Group Policy that would ask full credentials instead of prompting for yes or no when it comes to elevation. As per comments.

Sounds like your domain windows are trying to contact your DC but unable to get information what they need from DC. It could be either you have corrupted profile roaming or computers are trying to map a network drive but failed. I would do the following: Make sure SBS 2011 has all windows update installed and up to date. Since I do know have enough ...

SMBClient uses your user account name for the remote server when you don't provide any username for it. When you are running the command via sudo, your username is root and so it is logging into remote server as root. You need to specify the username to use at the remote server with the -U <username> parameter.

For remote desktop scenario, I personally would not (and do not)use cached mode with RDS or Citrix environments. While you can use roaming profiles, they are going to affect your start-up times and potentially impact your RDS servers if they have to constantly move large OST files around. Additionally, if you are using shared activation support, there is ...

When creating your firewall rule in Windows using the Inbound / outbound rule Wizard, check the Custom Rule button. It will open up more options, including Scope in which you can designate which IP range you want to allow traffic into. Simply specify which local IP the rule applies to, and fill out the rest of the options as you navigate the wizard.

Best way to manage printer deployment is with gpo and print management roles. To properly resolved the issue I would do the following: Delete all printers from all profiles (can be done with scripts, if they are deployed through a GPO now, it will remain there even after GPO has been removed since it was an installation) Verify all the printers are ...

I ended up doing this by taking a VMware snapshot of the machine while frozen and then converting the .VMSN file to a .DMP file using the vmss2core tool. I had to use the -W8 option to get it to read my .VMSN file (-W and -W9600 didn't work).

I'm having a little difficulty understanding the exact scenario, but if your setup looks like this: Server1 --Server2 running in Hyper-V on Server1 on internet virtual network ----Workstation running in Hyper-V on Server 2 on external virtual network I believe you'll want to change Server2's virual NIC to connect to the external network (instead of ...

Although you evidently have to remove these registry keys for individual file types, this is the most comprehensive list for it that I've found: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;-------- ;-------- Remove "Print" from context menu for image files ;-------- [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\print] ;-------- ;-------- Remove Print ...

Before you start running network scanners on your network, have you actually asked your coworkers for any documentation, wikis, email chains, etc that might give you a better clue? Assuming no one knows anything and you're on your own. The first thing I'd do is a reverse DNS lookup on the IP that the URL maps to. If the public URL is a friendly name and ...

I fixed this problem by re-checking my Environment variables. You may check %TEMP% to see whether you ever add something inside before. Remove any other folders except for windows temp and then reboot.

On the windows servers there exist a tool schtasks.exe Which is the task manager but in the command line. This may be an alternative to run a gui app on a remote machine. To start a gui app immediately the task should be "created" (schtasks.exe /create) with past time and subsequent issuing of the command schtasks.exe /run with same task name parameter. It ...

Azure AD Directory Services is a new preview feature that functions more as a Domain Controller as a Service offering and does allow you push GPO's. The GPO and OU structure is more limited to classic AD, but it can be done. It is in preview so bear in mind the SLA consequences for that.

Assuming you use roaming profiles, you could just set the "Profile Path" and "Home folder" parameters for a given user with a script. However, only one profile can be active at a time of course.

Azure active directory cannot be used like this. It is not a replacement for Active Directory (well, at least it isn't at the time of writing). What you want to do is use the intune service in combination with AAD to achieve what you want. I do not believe you will be able to do full GPO, but there are a ton of settings you can configure.

When not using a domain, the LocalSystem account can access network resources only with anonymous credential. In other words, it will not present named credential to the remote samba server.

As the name suggests, this utility provides the autoproxy service in a Windows Server installation. It’s really only relevant to you if you’re using automatic proxy configuration. Otherwise, you can safely disable it. If you have additional questions, I'd check out Everything You Need To Know About WinHttpAutoProxySvc.

I have tested this locally and cannot replicate the behavior. Even when I set my linux machine to use only two local ports I am able to initiate multiple (20+) connections to the same domain (internal or external) without issue. I also ensure that the remote server is in TIME-WAIT state by setting the no-http-keep-alive header (and confirmed via netstat). I ...

I found the cause. This is because of EFS. If a user encrypt a file and if he does not have a roaming profile then a local profile is created on the server.

Make sure that authenticated users can access the share with your desktop wallpaper file. If the GPO is configured properly then this will solve the problem.

You could probably use smbclient with credentials to copy the files, redirecting commands into it. It has a lot of similar syntax to ftp. man smbclient to get a manpage (or search on your favorite search engine).

You can restart the HTTP service using net stop http and net start http. It will obvious only affect applications using it (like IIS). You will also need to restart any services depending on HTTP service and close any other process using \Device\Http\* (otherwise the service won't stop). Here's a PowerShell script to do all this.

There could be any number of possible explanations for this. To start ruling them out, try the following: AD/GPO Replication - Ensure that your domain controllers can replicate between eacother (if you have mroe than 1, which hopefully you do).

Functionally there are no restrictions on the system / OS. They do, however, maintain the usual evaluation licensing restrictions -- meaning they are for short-term, test use only. If you're going to do anything long-term or production based, you'll need to get the appropriate licensing.

To learn more about those VM too on my side, I asked your question on a private channel I have with MS and from a well known IE MVP I got this answer; There are no limits and they are not stripped down. nb. Limit for using the VM for testing anything, not for the actual activation limit.

The descriptor file defines how and where the data of the VMDK image is stored. The data is stored in extent data files.

BDillan, What an excellent Find. I personally downloaded the VM and tried it out myself. This is exactly what you had hoped it would be. You should be able to test whatever it is you like.
