Can it be that it does copy the drives twice? The VM folders should not be backed up as part of C: (i.e. file backup) but ONLY as part of the VM backups. If you backup C as DRIVE - well, the path where it faily is there.

You can simulate a /dev/zero with Busybox-w32, although I'm not sure whether it can or not zero-fill storages: while printf '\0'; do printf '\0'; done | dd of=<file> bs=4M conv=sync status=progress Or: yes "" | tr '\n' '\0' | dd of=<file> bs=4M conv=sync status=progress If you don't mind installing a full GNU/POSIX environment, Cygwin ...

the lease time is set to 15 mins, after which all devices keep dropping off for a few seconds and reconnecting. That's not normal behavior. A standard DHCP client tries to renew a lease after half the lease time. If that fails it'll keep retrying until the lease runs out and then fall back to some default (link-local/APIPA mostly). You might want to check ...

The TiWorker system process is related to Windows Update. This is one of the critical process included on in Microsoft Services and must not be mistaken for any malware issues. If there are any updates happening or if the computer is scanning for any update release, this system process may use resources on your computer, the reason why you see it has high ...

It appears you are not following this specific detail from the documentation listed. The //./ corresponds to the Windows syntax of \.\ for accessing physical drives. Windows has different syntax than Linux OS.

The real reason behind the request is lack of knowledge and professionalism. There is no excuse to do it like that, but it is often an easier way for IT support than doing things correctly. They honestly don't understand that they are compromising their own security by asking users for passwords. If users should be taught one thing about security, it is: IT ...

This is a common error some IT do by lacking to explain why. If the request is authentic, an actual laptop change. Technically speaking he could just change your password and give it to you when the job is done. In COVID Time if working from home it might break your VPN ressource if the IT change it. The best way of action is to change it yourself and give a ...

I have solved this and have a few observations: 1st: Naming the file Autoattend.xml leads to it being applied automatically, no need to use the /unattend option. 2nd: For some reason, InputLocale and UserLocale have no effect when UILanguage and SystemLocale are not set. Setting them to their respective default values fixes this. 3rd: If all options from 2nd ...

There are 2 ways in which you can disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 You can either use IISCrypto which is a program that makes disabling and enabling TLS (and other things) very easy, or you can do this via the registry keys (which if they don't exist you can create) Try disabling the 1.0 and 1.1 on the server itself as well :) Here's a link with the explanations: ...

From my understanding, the client negotiates which version the server and client will use. This is just an assumption but it seems that the client may not support tls.1.2 as other are able to connect and only this one user cannot, by default windows should support TLS 1.2 though. Are all the clients windows 10 20h2 ?

TL;DR: No. Anything that you want to cluster, or share state like that must be designed and coded to be clustered. The challenge with things like minecraft and other highly responsive interactive games, the state of server and every player is updated many times a second (games like battlefield 3,4 can have servers updating state ~60 times per second or more)....

While incorrect file permissions can be an issue and they indeed often are, they are not the only cause of login failures. Rather than trying solutions, please investigate the cause for your problem.

There are a number of ways you could accomplish this goal, but the most common would likely be a PowerShell script utilizing the ActiveDirectory module to: Query the attribute from the object(s) that contain it Parse the data Set new values for the separate attributes associated with the parsed data This also assumes the new attributes you're trying to set ...

I am a CCIE, the answer to your question depends on the topology and your business parameters. In fact, where most people leverage HSRP or VRRP you can probably get away with just distributing multiple default gateways via DHCP. Failure can be a little more seamless via HSRP or VRRP and if any stateful devices in the path also happen to record or track the ...

If a DNSSec-signed sone suddenly replace both ZSK (and all records related to the old ZSK), and at the same time keep the KSKs (which are referenced to by upstream server). Will it cause any trouble? Yes. You seem to forget that DNS records have TTL. So recursive resolvers will/may have the old key data in their cache (the DNSKEY records listing the old ...

Possibly, it's a performance problem. Whenever I had that problem, too much data needed to be replicated to succeed in the time interval until the next replication took place. That was because I did not exclude the pagefile from replication and it was used heavily. Look at the replication statistics to get an idea about the amount of data. You could do as I ...

It was an IP address conflict, as indicated by the system event log on the Windows Server 2019 instance.

Sorry to say, you're going to have to shorten your naming convention. The maximum length of a computer name in Windows is 15 characters, and there is no way around that. This is because the maximum length of a netBIOS account name is 16 characters - you can see this on page 10 of the RFC for NetBIOS. Windows adds a dollar sign $ to the end of a computer ...

You are generating the certificates yourself, of course nobody else is going to trust them; that's the whole point of certificates. You should get a certificate from a public Certification Authority (or use a free solution like Let's Encrypt).

That's because uninstalling Virtual Box does not delete the virtual machine images you created while using it. By default, VirtualBox stores its VM files in the folder VirtualBox VMs in the user's home directory (so, typically under C:\Users\<username>\VirtualBox VMs on MS Windows). To get rid of the VMs you created, you can delete these files (if you ...

The short answer: yes, you can use Azure AD with O365 and remove your local Active directory.

I had exactely the same behavior, being the only one with this issue. It was cause by a to high MTU value for the WiFi connetion. I changed the automatic setting of the MTU of the network card to the manual setting, using 1400 as new value. Immediately the issue disappeared.

400 status means “Bad Request”. So this is not a server-side issue. There is something wrong with the request. Is not well-formed before reaching to IIS If the substatus code was something other than 0, it would be easier to troubleshoot. For example, If it was 1, it would mean “Invalid Destination Header”. If it was 2, that would mean “Invalid Depth Header”....

No. Those are just two representations of the same thing. The shorter form will (sooner or later) be converted to the longer form. Then the processing will occur. I can't be more specific without first understanding what you mean by "saving the view" and "writes out".
