Windows Parity Spaces are dog slow and (according to Microsoft) aren’t designed for anything except archive workloads. Microsoft keeps trying to improve write performance say implemented log missing from the hardware RAIDs, but lack of the battery-powered write back cache takes away all the fun. You can however try to improve writes by telling Spaces you ...

You can do that NP. Here’s one of the millions of these step-by-step guides on how to do that. http://woshub.com/how-to-upgrade-windows-server-2016-evaluation-to-full-version/

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 ...

"Windows Storage Spaces - a useful replacement for RAID6?" If by "RAID6" you mean "I hate my data and want to get to it in as slow a way as possible" then yeah, sure - we lost 62TB of data to it at one point, luckly had a backup of it all but never again. EDIT: Don’t trust to Windows software RAID, don’t trust to double parity ...

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.

Seems like know issue. But I'm wondering if this simply is be related to some network settings or connection settings (persistent?) on your MSSQL server. Means when you're restarting your DC the SQL server doesn't know about and the SQL is trying to auth and it cuts the connection or corrupt the response from DC in the middle of auth. It's one of the ...

I want to absolutely confirm the same scenario. Running pfSense on VMware where the upload bandwidth would be painfully slow while download was just fine. For us, it was ONLY if the pfSense VM and the guest VMs were on the same host. When the pfSense VM and host VM were on a different host the problem went away. When disabling the offloads on the pfsense VMs ...

The only buffer is the RAM of the client computers: the previous instance may still be running if it has never been closed. However, if they are using shortcuts, you should know that Windows Explorer can find the original (old) file and update the shortcut accordingly: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20121008-00/?p=6383 What could I do to force ...

The answer is yes and no. I am very sorry. Technically: Yes, you can. Practically all versions (not editions!) are useable with the same key. Licensewise: Most probably not. To use the Semi-Annual Channel in the volume licensing programs, you need a valid Software Assurance for Windows Server. Source: I have been coocoobananas trained. Over many years. I am ...

For reasons I don't quite understand, Fedora named the systemd units that start smbd and nmbd smb and nmb respectively. To manage these services, use systemctl <command> smb (or nmb). I was able to find the systemd units by inspecting the RPM contents, to wit: [root@localhost ~]# rpm -ql samba | grep systemd/system /usr/lib/systemd/system/nmb.service /...

Best way to start is open all traffic from your IP in the Security Group. That way you can test if it works without AWS network firewall (ie Security Group) stepping in.

Is there a way for Network Sign-In to update the cached password No. This is an education issue. Users should change their password when they are connected, then CTRL-ATL-DELETE and lock/unlock the computer. Done.

Offline file syncronisation could cause you such problem if by error you enabled it on the folder, as it’s not a good practice to enable such feature on a shared folder. Make sure the sync center does not sync that folder. As if a sunc error happen, the computer would use the local cached file.

There is a very simple solution, use Powershell instead of the antiquated command prompt: Copy-Item D:\000Back\list.txt ("D:\111Back\" + (get-date -format "yyyyMMdd_HHmm") + ".txt") It's a oneliner.

I have many 4648 events on my main machine, for me this happens every time I am logged-in as a standard user and then run a new process as a different user, usually an administrator. You can do this with runas.exe or Start-Process -verb runas, or in the GUI content menu Run as a different user or Run as administrator. It may also happen when a scheduled ...

Ah! I found the issue. It turns out that some of the attributes are read-only so I would be able to put the entire instance back again and that is where it was failing. I have changed it so it is now just updating the attribute SSLCertificateSHA1Hash. Set-CimInstance -CimInstance $RDPInstance -Property @{SSLCertificateSHA1Hash=$Thumbprint} -PassThru

The User-Principal-Name login username will be the same for both. This attribute contains the UPN that is an Internet-style login name for a user based on the Internet standard RFC 822. The UPN is shorter than the distinguished name and easier to remember. By convention, this should map to the user email name. Although it's the convention, this doesn't ...

Microsoft removed SMBv1 protocol support by default on Windows 10/2016 and higher. The samba clients seems to try to connect using SMBv1, which therefore fails. You may be successful with this changes to your /etc/samba/smb.conf: client min protocol = SMB2 client max protocol = SMB3 in the [GLOBAL] Section. In my case I also had to put a password on my ...

You can use a line like this: FOR /F "usebackq tokens=5 delims= " %i IN (`netstat -ano ^|find "ESTABLISHED"`) DO @tasklist /fi "pid eq %i" | find "%i" or, a bit shorter, this does the same: netstat -a -b -n -o | findstr ESTABLISHED || tasklist | findstr PID

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 ...

Windows doesn't have functionality to limit the SMB protocol version to specific shares. It seems promising, at first, to restrict access to TCP port 139 to the SMBv1 clients' IP addresses. Only SMBv1 over NBT (NetBIOS over TCP) can run on port 139. That's not workable, though, because SMBv1 will also be exposed over TCP port 445 if it's enabled, and ...

You have SMBv1 turned off (as it should be, it is very insecure) and SMBv1 is required for Network Browsing. Try installing this: https://github.com/christgau/wsdd It will allow your Windows clients to see your Samba machine using Network Discovery. You might want to read 'man smb.conf', you have quite a few lines you don't need and don't have a line you do ...
