If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment What do I need to manage remote laptops in ConfigMgr 2012r2?
@HopelessN00b a VPN will work for the staff laptops, but not for the ones they borrow for training (not on the domain, not always used by people with domain accounts) or the public computers (like library computers) - I don't want them on the staff network, but do need to make sure they have all their updates and get hardware inventories.

comment Exchange TLS Receive Connector Cert
If CheckTLS.com is returning the right certificate, and not showing any other errors, the error is likely on their side. The only other thing I can think to check is that CheckTLS.com shows that all the chained certificates are being sent (the godaddy intermediate and root certificates for your cert).

Use checktls.com to test which certificate your server is presenting.

If you can't remove them from the exchange console, try from mmc.exe -> Certificates.

comment Server won't physically fit in rack: which technical problems will I face in future if I force the mount?
At the very least, remove the doors so nobody can close them accidentally and smash something. Most rack doors come off just by pulling a pin on the hinge.

comment Apache not serving static content concurrently
When you say you tried it in two browsers, do you mean "I opened 2 tabs in firefox. Then I tried 2 tabs in chrome", or do you mean "I opened one tab in firefox and one in chrome at the same time"? To see if its a browser issue you need to try the latter.

Does the website require a username and password? If so its an android bug that has persisted for years.

comment Delete files from Server 2003 network share
@AnthonyFisher its even scarrier that your previous question says you work for a bank. Hope nobody ever learns they can install the AD management tools on their desktop...

comment Delete files from Server 2003 network share
All of the users are domain admins?!?! Local admin is bad enough, but every user as domain admin is practically begging to have issues. I would stop worrying about file permissions and fix that first.

comment Heavy Samba usage affects other users on the same share
RAID 5 across 7 2TB SATA disks is a really really really bad idea. There is an extremely high chance of a second disk failure during rebuilding.

comment Is it possible to setup a KVM switch to support both DVI and VGA video sources?
You can use two kvms and a single monitor that has both dvi and vga inputs...try to get one where switching inputs takes a single button press. Not perfect, but at least only requires one monitor.

comment How do I restrict a removable NTFS drive to domain access only?
@davidthielen even the boot partition is accessible. Once connected as a secondary drive to the thief's own computer, they can access everything on the drive. Encryption ensures that even though they can read the drive, they can't see the real, original data.

comment Why is Wireshark not capturing certain POST requests?
@terokilkanen that or add the ca cert your proxy is signing the fake certs with to your trusted ca list.

comment Why is Wireshark not capturing certain POST requests?
@TeroKilkanen exactly. If you don't have that, you use a MitM proxy - so the connection goes "Your server" -https-> "Proxy" -different_https-> "Their server". The proxy is the one who is really talking to the remote server, so it can see the unencrypted data.
