Doing this isn't worth the potential headache. I've been through this operation when it didn't work correctly and in the end wished I hadn't undertaken it. Is the name really so important? This seems a bit like tilting at windmills to me. You should have at least two domain controllers, whether that's one old one and one new one or two new ones. I wouldn't ...

Stack trace ends with megasas that means command to your MegaRAID (you probably have some RAID array) may have unexpectedly failed or it's a driver bug. I'd recommend updating MegaRAID firmware together with ESXi driver (and probably ESXi itself while you're at it). ESXi 5.1 is ancient but you can still get updates and async drivers from VMware site. My gut ...

Building on @JohnC s answer and extending it You could use an XML filter like: <QueryList> <Query Id="0" Path="System"> <Select Path="Security">*[System[Provider[@Name='eventlog' or @Name='Microsoft-Windows-Eventlog'] and (EventID=1074 or EventID=1076 or EventID=6005 or EventID=6006 or EventID=6008) and TimeCreated[timediff(@SystemTime) &...

They mean a machine that is set to boot from a VHD via the boot menu, not a VM that boot from a harddisk, that is in fact a VHD on disk on the Hypervisor. There is a subtility there. For more information, Boot to a virtual hard disk: Add a VHDX or VHD to the boot menu

You need a backup solution, which can use Linux server as backup repository. Or you can configure CIFS(SMB) on Linux and most of backup solutions can utilise SMB. For example VEEAM B&R can use Linux repositories - https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/hyperv/linux_server.html?ver=95u4

During the conversion have you chosen the LSI Logic SAS controller for the Windows Server 2012R2 to boot up. Check the following KB article for additional information: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1006296 As an alternative you can use StarWind V2V converter, which can do P2V as well. https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-help/PhysicalDisksandP2VScenario....

You can save 53.45GB reducing space usage by 77% in case if you use both deduplication and compression. You can save 26.93MB if only the deduplication is used. Usually, deduplication gains are calculated using the deduplication ratio. I would recommend you using an alternative free tool called Deduplication Analyzer: https://www.starwindsoftware.com/...

You need multiple TCP connections over your LACP link to get aggregated performance. With only one TCP session you’ll get best NIC in the team performance and that’s it!

Figured I'd add another solution that I encountered. We have time servers that will not accept an NTP peering connection. They only accept NTP client requests. The Windows 2019 Domain Controller will not automatically try client mode and seems to insist on peering mode. Adding 0x8 to the flags in the manualpeers list fixes this. I.e. change 0x1 to 0x9....

Before you worry about page file size.... To be honest, you never want your SQL Server to start paging. SQL Server has a tendency to go pear-shaped when it's memory is paged to disk. Best practice for SQL Server is to set the Max Server Memory configuration to a number sufficiently large for SQL Server to have enough memory, but sufficiently small that ...

You can't do it. The newest IIS (v10 - on Server 2019) lets you choose "Disable Legacy TLS" on a per-binding level, but the version you have cannot do it. Realistically, there are only two ways to do what you want: Upgrade to Windows Server 2019 Set up an edge reverse proxy to handle SSL termination for your website and send it back to your main server. ...

I assume, it happens bacause of "computer credentials" change. Computer account password refresh is automatic process that happens between computer and domain controller without notification to or interaction with the user. Check 2-nd reason here Just login with local Admin and rejoin domain.

The Reserve Bank of Australia has chosen to only support TLS 1.2 connections with strong cipher suites: TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 (0xc030) TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0xc02f) Despite Windows 2012 R2 with IE11 supports TLS 1.2, it doesn't support these cipher suites. If you want to avoid upgrading to Windows Server 2016/2019, you ...

You can't join a Domain Controller to a different Active Directory domain. The whole Raison d'être of a DC is managing a domain, it's simply not possible to remove it from the domain it manages and/or join it to a different one. This is so critical for a DC that if AD services can't start properly, the server will simply blue screen. In order to be able to ...

My first guess would be "storage". How are disks and volumes configured? Which kind of RAID is in use? I'm pretty sure you have a rebuilding or degraded disk array; that would explain the slowness.

When doing shadowing (from what I understand) the communication is done over RPC instead, or at least setup is, and then a "random" port is used for the actual session. In practice this means that the port specified is ignored. http://woshub.com/rdp-session-shadow-to-windows-10-user/ mentions HKLM\SYSTЕM\CurrеntControlSеt\Control\Tеrminal Sеrvеr “...

I had the same question as you did. Here is a link that I found. It worked perfectly. I tested it against several of our Domain Controllers, and also against a vanity name i.e. ldaps.domain.com. It worked as expected. Testing LDAP and LDAPS connectivity with PowerShell

The history is stored in the following event-log: Microsoft-Windows-TaskScheduler/Operational You can see this log by opening the Windows Event Viewer -> Applications and Services Log -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Task Scheduler -> Operational You'll see all the logs of all your tasks (the "History" tab in the task scheduler is only a filtered view of this ...

Turning @user10082 comment into an answer. The proposed solution is a one-liner Powershell script: Get-EventLog -LogName System |? {$_.EventID -in (6005,6006,6008,6009,1074,1076)} | ft TimeGenerated,EventId,Message -AutoSize –wrap

I've never heard, nor have I ever done that. In most cases, you should be installing the latest version driver and firmware updates. Make sure to read the release notes and installation instructions for each to make sure that there are no prerequisites. There may be cases where your driver or firmware version is so old that you need to install some ...

It wasn't available in PS 6.* either, so I'm not sure why its being raised as a problem now. For that matter, neither were any of the cmdlets from the Microsoft.PowerShell.Diagnostics module (or the module itself). If you need this cmdlet to work on a Windows machine, you can leverage the WindowsCompatibility module to get it working: Import-WinModule -...

The user will also need to be able to log on to the machine from which the RDP connection is initiated. The account must authenticate at the connecting computer first before the RDP session will be initiated. If you prevent the account from logging on to the source, the RDP will never be initiated.

Virtualization always adds at least one more layer of complexity - and thus potential vulnerability - to any deployment. You have to make sure that the host system itself is up to date, the hypervisor, the deployed VM and the used software inside your VM. Networking may or may not be more complex, depending on the infrastructures setup and if e.g. bridging ...

Do not put the Windows Page File (Pagefile.sys) on the same disk where database or log files are located. You can leave it on the system drive or assign a new drive for it. If the system drive storage is SSD you can leave the page file residing there, and set the starting size of the page file base on the amount RAM x 1.5.

Create a DNS zone on your internal DNS server named hostname.mycompany.com. Create an "empty" A record in the zone with the ip address of the internal server you want this name to resolve to.

This can be caused if the Windows Modules Installer service is disabled.

This is your misunderstanding: \root disk \shared disk folder \problem subfolder Actually it looks like this: \root of volume#1 \junction to root of volume#2 \root of volume#2 \problem subfolder The root directory of a volume doesn't inherit permissions from a parent folder, because it doesn't have a parent folder.

It is possible to write your own code for password criteria.
