It's worth mentioning that page file works without any problems on Windows 10 up to compilation 1703. Update to newer or clean install of newer versions fail by default, though - as described above. @KentonVarda's suggestion to turn off page file is valid, but I went another way than offline registry edit. I have managed to work this problem around by ...

In Windows 10 firewall, find all the enabled (ticked) rules that start with "File and Printer Sharing...", and individually go into each, and under the "scope" tab change from "Local subnet" to "Any IP Address"

Check your Sysmain process if anything else doesn't ring a bell. Try to disable it and check for perfomance improvements.

CPU usage spikes on Windows can often be from updates. Often after an update/reboot, applications that use .NET Framework will run a little slower and use a bit more CPU while the new assemblies are linked to the new framework version. This can often show up as mscorsvw.exe in the process list. Based on the single core configuration of this server, I would ...

I experienced exact same behavior, and in my case it was a low memory issue. I saw a antivirus eat up huge memory and there wasn't any more memory available in computer to open the RDP Connection. I simply restarted to fix it.

My issue (may not be yours) was that there was bad XML in the machine.config file. If you've just edited the machine.config, and WAS (and IIS) won't start, it's because of this.

In the end, we found that machines that had motherboard servicing were not set up with an OEM key in BIOS/UEFI. The cards with keys Dell sent were all bad, most likely MS invalidated them. MS confirmed they were bad. Dell noted that any machines under warranty they would fix, but the rest are not fixable under warranty, and we are reimaging with Linux or a ...

Solved the issues with the below policy. It is a policy that is set on the domain controller, called GPO(Group Policy Object). Anyone with enough authorization has the ability to set the number of cached credentials(0-50), by changing GPO. If that number is set to 0, then it will only allow logins when connected to DC. You cant login to your domain account ...

You are not providing anything to work with so I need to make assumption that VM and Host are on the same broadcast domain and in the same IP subnet. From the host ping IP of the VM In the Host, check arp table for VM's MAC In the VM, check arp table for host's MAC If ARP tables show MACs correctly, L2 works If you are missing MACs in ARP you should capture ...

The ping module works only with Linux and BSD targets. For Windows targets use the win_ping_module.

The proper architecture in such cases is to have one service and then GUI controller application which runs new instance for each logged on user. These GUI apps can communicate with the service via UDP, registry keys, files or something like that, but there must be some developer tutorials for this.

Found the problem... It's not enough to create the virtual switch, I must also shut down the VM, go to settings, and change the network configuration to explicitly use that switch. I assumed each one will be a connection in its own right, but I was wrong. Thanks @Massimo for your thoughts.

A virtual switch acts exactly like a switch; if it's of the "external" type, it will be connected to a physical NIC on the host system, and it will use it as an uplink to the physical network. You don't need to configure anything for DHCP to work; if it's available on the physical network, it will be available to any VM connected to this virtual ...

The best solution to the issue of seeing lots of folders called "My Documents" because of desktop.ini on your file server, is to store them in a subfolder of the username. If you redirect "My Documents" folders to \\svr\users$\%username% this causes the problem. The path may be \\svr\users$\IrishGuy101 but when you browse the users$ share,...

If you would like to fix WSUS instead, make sure that you have selected Windows 10 1903 or later as a product in WSUS which you want to download patches for. For some reason Microsoft split patches for Windows 10 into Pre-1903 (confusingly named just Windows 10) and 1903 or later. This would explain why you're not getting any patches for your machine running ...
