comment Change different domain account without being admin Windows
I think you're answering someone else's question. I have 2 domain accounts. One I can log into. The other I have a password for but have to change the password before I can log in via RDP, thus, I have a need to change it without logging in with it.

comment Trouble Connecting with Cisco VPN client reason 412
You gave me a clue that fixed it...the Internet Connection Sharing...I was running HyperV on this box. To get the networking to work with the virtual switch you have to bridge the virtual switches network adapter with the one that will be using the connection. I broke the bridge and viola! everything worked.

comment VMware Host Copy File from catalog to VM/ISO mounting not working
Yeah, we tried that a number of times. In the end it turned out that you have to name the file *.iso. You can't upload it and tell the system that it's an iso, you have to force the issue.

comment Can I completely disable ASP.NET in IIS, together with all side effects?
If you want to host websites without having .net at all, I'd suggest looking at Apache, Apache Tomcat, zope, bottle.py, node.js or any number of other non .net free webservers

comment Can I completely disable ASP.NET in IIS, together with all side effects?
@romkyns For the server, go to "Request Filtering" click Deny File Extension and add aspx, cs, vb, asax, etc. It'll effectively disable asp.net. You can't remove asp.net without removing iis.

@AdamThompson caching was set to manual. Changed it to none, I'll see if I run into it again.

@AdamThompson Not a DFS, I'll check the caching though.

comment Windows 2008 R2 File Server Slow Changes
Mapped drive using SMB usually. Sometimes I'll do a two-step, copy it to a directory that's not in use, then I'll log into the server and copy it over. That's usually a second to last resort.

comment Sharepoint High Disk I/O - WSS_Search_SBS2011.mdf
@HaydnWVN If you stop it in SharePoint it shouldn't start up again. In the services mmc you can look at the dependencies in the properties, there shouldn't be anything depending on search that you can't do without, especially if you're not using search. If you actually DISABLE it in services also, it won't start up even if has dependencies.

comment How to deal with mass out of office / company closure
There are cases where setting an out of office for a group of people is acceptable. For instance, we had an environment that hosted a subdomain with mailboxes. We got rid of the subdomain and pulled the mailboxes into the root domain. We wanted to keep the old mailboxes out there for a time with an auto-reply so that people sending mail incorrectly would get the message, much like a page is moved site that redirects after 3 seconds that you eventually get rid of.

comment Grant NON-administrator privileges to IIS 7
That walkthrough only lets you set up delegation on a site level, nothing about the entire host. Further it is only for remote administration, that is, I wouldn't be able to open IIS manager on the server itself.

comment unable to access a NAT'ed IP via a VPN on Windows 7
The NAT is a bit of a red herring, since you are connecting to a VPN it should make your computer a part of their local network. Did you run the ipconfig while you were connected to VPN? Can you also do a route print while you're connected to the VPN? A "host unreachable" means that based on the device's routing table it's not possible to reach that host. If I had a guess, I'd think you're not fully connected to the VPN or the VPN has changed somehow and you should contact the provider. 192.168.0.8 is your local nic, it's saying that your computer doesn't know where to send traffic for 172

comment Windows Server 2008 R2 hangs when Editing folder permissions
I'm thinking there may be some communications issue between the server and the global catalog. A few things, how many DCs are there? If more than 1, can you check to see if there are any errors on those (in the event log)? When was the server attached to the domain (wondering if maybe the computer password expired but there were still cached credentials)? Can you resolve the domain name from the server (nslookup yourdomain.local)?

comment How does VPN software 'hijack' packets for tunneling?
It doesn't necessarily set the default interface to the virtual interface. The main thing is the Routing table. In some implementations, yes, the 0.0.0.0 route will be set to the virtual interface, this is in use to keep most of the traffic going through the tunnel. Otherwise it will just add routes to the internal network with the virtual interface set for those routes.

Have you contacted vendor support to see if this is even supported?
