Don't mix AD, Hyper-V and File Server in one Windows Server instance. Just install Hyper-V on baremetal and deploy sepearte Windows VMs for AD and FileServer role. Virtual Switches allow you to segregate network interfaces for each role. Here is explanation regarding combining Hyper-V and AD role on the same server: https://www.hyper-v.io/combining-hyper-v-...

Will File Share in Azure (SMB3 under the hood) work? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-files-introduction Azure File Sync will help with the local “cache” on premises. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-deployment-guide?tabs=azure-portal

It's terrible when your vendor doesn't support a modern operating system and you have to run a business critical application on something old and crummy. Ugh. I suspect that your nmap is upsetting an IDS and the traffic is being blocked mid-scan. Back in the day, I used to manually load drivers on the DOS system to test them and watch for errors. That ...

Yes, it is possible : On the folder containing the executables, show the Advanced Permissions and grant the following rights to the user group : Traverse Folder / Execute file List Folder / Read data Read attributes Read extended attributes and select Applies to Files only, that's the important bit. The users will be able to launch the executables either ...

This is not a specific question but there are two important points that mitigate most ransomware attacks: 1 - Always have an off-site, offline backup of your data (probably rotate two or more) 2 - Make sure your data is encrypted so if the server is compromised your data is not. How you do this depends on too many variables to go into here.

Running an executable from a share works just like it would if it were on a local disk. The system will load the executable into memory and run it. This doesn't change whether the executable is remote or not. Windows has a has a memory-based file cache. It pulls the executable into that cache, along with other components it needs while it's running (ie. ...

You can use the below PowerShell script to allow the user to change their password remotely. The user simply executes this script and completes the prompts. For the below script to work, you will need to open PowerShell as an administrator and run the command Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned to allow the execution of unsigned scripts created locally. ...

It was caused by offline synching being enabled... Once disabled the share appears correctly. Method to disable sync here

I just found this answer, and it worked! ... my solution was to adjust the security policies on the Windows client. Run > Secpol.msc then I set Local Policies > Security Options > Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level to 'Send NTLMv2 response only. Refuse LM & NTLM' and the client connects just like before. or adding this in the ...

Replacing the spaces with \040 is actually the right way to do it. The reason why it’s not working for you is probably because there are (forgotten?) quotes after /Restricted: //servername.org.au/ABC/Company\040Services/…/Restricted" /mnt/n-drive cifs id=0,credentials=/etc/samba/login.crt,iocharset=utf8,noperm 0 0 Change that to: //...

The belief among some of the technical staff is that this is too much - it would enable a user to give control of their folder to another user. What is their specific concern about a user doing that with their own files? If you're comfortable with giving the users Full Control of their own files and folders then I don't personally see a problem with it. ...

I am not very familiar with trickle, but it appears to me that in your command, trickle is operating on the "find" command rather then the tar command which would be where the bandwidth is in use. I would look at rejigging the command to use PV to limit the speed of the stream. I've not tried it, but I imagine something like this would work: find /mnt/...

Isn't it possible to simply add a domain-user on the server and access the share-folders with that user through the windows-home computers? Can a computer outside of the domain authenticate with a domain user? You can create user accounts on the server for each of your users. Secure the shared folders on the server appropriately for these users. Then ...

After some more tweaking of the settings what finally solved the problem was, that we found out, that the domain required password authentication. This was very well hidden in a garmada of error messages, so we finally enabled a user on the nas, and set up these two machines to connect as the user. This security setting was most probably flipped by some of ...

I know this is an old question, but I had a similar requirement recently, albeit on Windows Server 2008 R2. Here is one option that came to mind: Block share access via Windows Firewall: In Windows Server 2003 SP1: Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Exceptions tab > Untick File and Printer Sharing > OK button. In my case I ended up putting a Deny on the ...

You could, of course, remove your connection by doing net use \\somemachine\someshare /d But you probably want to re-connect eventually too. Furthermore, if you have cached credentials to the network share, then when you re-establish the connection you may find yourself fighting one of these errors: System error 1272 has occurred. You can't access ...

Windows 10 Pro 1909 here. I could not get a truly anonymous share to work, no matter what. But that might not be really necessary, since Guest shares still work and they accept any username with a blank password: 1) Enable the Guest account. 2) Add Guest or Everyone permissions to both the share AND the files inside. Remember that Guest is a member of ...
