This answer is high-level because I don't know which version of SBS or Essentials you're running, and because if I explained each step the answer would become huge. You can find documentation online for each of these steps.
First of all: If the user limit you're running up against is the 2012 Essentials 25 users, you can upgrade in place and the ...
In the exchange management shell run Get-ExchangeCertificate to get the thumbprint on the cert you're trying to renew then run the following:
Get-ExchangeCertificate <thumbprint> | New-ExchangeCertificate | Enable-ExchangeCertificate -services pop,imap,smtp,iis
If using SBS2011 then
Start the Windows SBS2011 Standard Console
Click on the Network icon in the top bar, then click the Connectivity tab
Wait for the panel in the right to become active and then click on 'Fix My Network'
Let the wizard search for problems.
One of the problems it should find is the expired certificate.
Clear all the checkboxes except the ...
You cannot have more than one SBS on a domain. If you need an additional server you should purchase a full Windows Server SKU.
How should you decide if SBS is the right choice? You can have only one SBS server and only one domain
Autodiscover is a means to help simplify the configuration of remote Outlook installations and mobile devices to use Exchange. Microsoft's verbose documentation about this feature is here.
The easiest approach to get over the autodiscover hurdle is to create a public DNS A Record for autodiscover.mydomain.com that points to your SBS server's IP address. ...
I've always understood SBS to be the "Windows Server for small businesses when you don't have an IT department but want an all in one server". SBS makes sense in some shops, not so much in others. If you want to be 100% Microsoft, have no desire to go to the cloud yet, and have fewer than 25 employees, then it could make sense for your company. While "...
Welcome to the wonderful world of SBS. Recommended requirements for RAM = 10GB... and it REQUIRES a minimum of 8gb. (according to Microsoft.) for a good reason. It's not a fine-tuned well-oiled machine... it's very sloppy, bloated, and has everything under the sun bundled together. The more RAM you can throw at that box... the better. Unfortunately, you'...
This is what I ended up doing:
setting the server application cache for the .NET AppPools to a low value (5 MB) by setting the privateBytesLimit parameter in the web.config at %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<version>\Config as suggested in this answer:
The only way I could stop this service without rebooting the server was to run a command prompt using the service account. Do this I used PsExec from Sysinternals
psexec -i -s cmd
In the new window I was able to issue the service stop command with no problem
sc stop schedule
If you suspect that the resulting memory consumption is a problem due to a software defect, you can use the Microsoft DebugDiag 1.2 to create a full memory dump and analyze the dump for common issues. If you think there may be a memory issue, you need to enable leak tracking by selecting the "Monitor for Leaks" option and let it run for a while before ...
Today is just not my day. If I had read my dcdiag closely:
NETLOGON Service is paused on [EPPINGSBS2011]
Un-paused the service, and hey presto, everybody is happy. Now - to find out why it was paused in the first place.
The issue was that I was unable to access the Delta CRL file through IIS 7. This was due to '+' sign in the file name MYSERVER-CA+.crl. By default IIS 7 sets the property allowDoubleEscaping to False, and this must be enabled so that IIS can serve up this file.
In IIS7, I went into the Default Website, navigated to the CertEnroll virtual directory and ...
Do I really need WSUS?
No. You can configure computers to pull updates directly from Microsoft, in which case you will not need WSUS.
Any easy instruction to disable WSUS?
Remove the WSUS Server role (in Server Manager)
Check C:\WSUS\ for leftover content/packages, and delete if needed. Leave the database folders intact to avoid SQL issues.
This may ...
I assume you are looking for a server solution and not a SAAS product, otherwise this question would be offtopic.
Sparkleshare is an open source software that could satisfy your needs.
But I would recommend just using rsync to mirror to a remote server that has the bandwidth you require.
You can set up this system in minutes and it does everything you ...
Thanks to the pointers provided by Mark Henderson, I finally nailed this one. I had to change two objects in EMS:
Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity "ourserver\ews (Default Web Site)" `
-InternalUrl https://support.ourdomain.au/EWS/Exchange.asmx `
Set-ClientAccessServer -identity ...
Outlook system folders names assigned according to language of Outlook client used for first connection (profile creation). This folders cant be renamed.
To reset system folders names in English if it created with other language run Outlook with this user profile with /resetfoldernames commandline switch after changing the user interface language to English ...
First off, for a mail environment that small, I'd suggest that you probably don't want to do a co-existence migration, but more likely a cutover. It'll avoid a lot of PITA and extra work to just get the new environment stood up, transfer your data and cutover your MX records, DNS, gateway settings, etc.
Secondly, a smarthost is used in mail migrations to ...
If they truly were domain-joined and were simply renamed, that's been updated in AD. You're probably just looking at a stale view. Try refreshing your view or opening/closing whatever app you're using to view AD. (There may also be a replication delay if you have multiple Domain Controllers.)
Incidentally, the best idea you're going to hear is to not let ...
HopelessN00b is correct, AD should automatically update. It is possible that the computer object is now in a different OU than where you expect it to be, and thus, you're unable to find it. Try this:
In Active Directory Users and Computers, select View | Advanced Features. Make sure this is checked.
Select Action | Find. Change the Find: drop down to "...
Depending on how you created your directory structure, you might have broken inheritance for some of your subdirectories. In this case, you should use the "reset permissions on all child objects and enable propagation" check box in the Advanced Access Control Settings dialog:
After doing this, you should see inheritance working again.
If you are not able ...
Have you tried using the following registry value? This usually works with integrated authentication (not basic/forms authentication).
Refer to the following document for more information:

You're fine to use the functionality you've always used in "Active Directory Users and Computers" to make the changes you want. The "friendly" administration tool should always be used, wherever possible, but in this case you'd have no choice but to break out the "real" tools. The product isn't tremendously different from Windows Server 2008 R2 underneath, ...
I wouldn't remove it, personally. I never have, simply from a philosophical perspective.
I'm fine disabling things but I don't hasten to remove them. In the same way that I never make changes to the "Default Domain Policy" and "Default Domain Controllers" policy I try to avoid making changes that are difficult to reverse and that would make a machine ...
Exchange 2007 and newer versions stop you from performing a domain rename. Since you say that you're ditching on-premise Exchange that's not a factor. That opens up the door for what I think would be a much easier process than any kind of creation of a new forest or domain:
Complete your migration to Office 365 and remove Exchange from your SBS 2011 ...
This Event is usually caused by a stale hidden credential. Try this from the system giving the error:
From a command prompt run: psexec -i -s -d cmd.exe
From the new cmd window run: rundll32 keymgr.dll,KRShowKeyMgr
Remove any items that appear in the list of Stored User Names and Passwords. Restart the computer.
Check if the database cache is taking up the memory (and not releasing it for some reason) using the perfmon Exchange "Database cache size" counter. If so, try limiting the cache sizes by setting msExchESEParamCacheSizeMin/msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax values in the InformationStore Active Directory object's properties as described in this blog.
If it is not ...
You'll have to enable IMAPS on port 993 and add your certificate to the IMAP service for SSL in the Exchange System Manager. Even beyond that, you have may to make some changes to the Thunderbird side to alleviate some problems with IMAP downloads. Out of the box, Thunderbird mated with Exchange can result in corrupted attachment/large email downloads. See ...
If you don't need Exchange and/or SQL Server, SBS is the wrong choice. With SBS you essentially get all the main Microsoft products at a much lower price than the full retail price of all of them together, but still at a higher price than a simple Standard license of Windows Server; and it comes with big limits on the number of users and servers you can have ...
HP have the drivers you're looking for. I googled: "hp ml350 g6 ipmi driver windows"
Top Link, then head down to "Driver - Lights-Out Management" and download the drivers from there.
You should probably install all the relevant drivers for the hardware you've got. You should know which hardware you've got, you must have ordered it at some point ;)
