    in reply to: problem with remote outlook refusing to authenticate #377065

    Re: problem with remote outlook refusing to authenticate

    I have also tried that – I didn’t know you could do it that exact way, but I did go on the server to public downloads, and copied the certificate installer to the client PC, then ran it.

    That still did not resolve the issue.

    Re: Recovering an ESX guest machine

    In the end I just reloaded from scratch – because with this particular guest, we had very little information on it, so it was easier to reload.

    If the VMX file is also present you can right click it and select “Add to Inventory”. If the VMX file isn’t present then you can create a new VM and select the Custom option and then select the option “Use an existing virtual disk” and browse to the VMDK.

    The VMX file was not present.

    I tried as suggested, adding the VMDK file, but when I tried to boot, it said no operating system found.

    Im thinking about just building windows from scratch.

    thats good to know. Im just printing that guide out now and will read through.

    Is my work around a sensible one?

    thanks guys

    I assume Backup assist is working great with server 2008 R2 ?
    And it can do system state backups?

    thanks for the postings

    Yes, it works great with 2008 R2, and 2012 for that matter.

    Im pretty sure it does do system state backups, and it does image backups as well I beleive.

    BUT I dont think you can do those with rsync. In my case, I only use rsync standalone, and I use just for data and mailstore.

    are both running SBS ?

    Ours is sbs, but I don’t know about the other site.
    Anyway, I have now been made aware of a kb that addresses the issue:

    So I’ll give that a go first.

    Have you looked on the php script or plugin to see exactly what address the emails are being sent to? Or how they are being sent?

    The better solution is direct SMTP delivery to your SBS
    The POP connector has always (AFAIK) been considered an interim solution while you are migrating to SBS and shoul be replaced when you can

    I thought you would say that, but the complicating factor is that there are two offices – one running sbs 2011 and managed by us with 10 users, and the other with around the same number of users, but managed by a third party IT company – and this office is over the other side of the country.

    We both are responsible for the same domain (not ideal I know) and we both download mail via POP from a hosted web server.

    What would be the correct way to do this, based on this limited info?

    in reply to: Outlook Anywhere – Exchange 2010 #377054

    Re: Outlook Anywhere – Exchange 2010

    I regularly run sbs 2011 and outlook anywhere with self signed Certs – I just follow the sbs console setup, which I believe installs certificate authority service.

    With a certificate assigned by local CA, outlook anywhere will work, but you have to install the CA cert in the client machine.

    I believe there is an article on it here:

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2008/09/30/how-do-i-distribute-the-sbs-2008-self-signed-ssl-certificate-to-my-users.aspx

    in reply to: Server backup software #377050

    Re: Server backup software

    I second backup assist. It’s reasonable prices – between $99-$300 depending what you need.

    Personally I use rsync standalone and back everything up to remote rsync servers running Ubuntu (rsync works out of the box), but you can also backup straight to amazon aws I believe, or of course with the full version you can backup to disk and so on.

    Also backup assist has great reporting, can back up exchange and even individual mailboxes.

    in reply to: Adding comparability for tapatalk mobile forum app #377049

    Re: Adding comparability for tapatalk mobile forum app

    Hmm obviously that’s not good.

    But it is really good for usability I’m sure – 80% of the day I’m accessing the Internet from my phone or ipad and app based forums are so much easier than trying to navigate a desktop site.

    Obviously that’s just my opinion, but I’m sure more and more people are accessing via mobile devices these days so I’m sure it would be a big benefit to users.

    Occasionally product launches, demo days etc.

    Most recently I was at Microsoft’s Tech Days event in Glasgow which was predominantly about Windows 8 with some Server 2012 content. If one of our suppliers releases a new product and is demoing it we’ll try and send someone along if it’s something we might be interested in selling.

    Sadly, not all companies will do an event in Scotland, Symantec are the most consistent for coming up here.

    What a shame I would definitely have gone to that – I live in South East England, but my partners family live in Scotland so would have been ideal:)

    look at the folder redirection policy, the option for ‘grant user exclusive rights to the my documents folder” is probably ticked

    Untick, run gpupdate /force and then reset your permissions

    should be ok

    That makes sense. I didn’t know about that option. I will check that today.

    Re: How exactly does exchange spam prevention work?

    I suppose its obvious really, but I didnt think ISPs would get blacklisted – or that they would keep on top of it enough that people wouldn’t notice…

    Its a nightmare really – obviously we have no control over it – I suppose that highlights one of the benefits from running exchange:)

    Re: How exactly does exchange spam prevention work?

    scurlaruntings thanks for the input – no exchange isnt pop’ing our email, in this scenario, we are actually on a standard pop/smtp setup – provided by our ISP.

    I prefer running things from exchange (more control).

    Thanks for the response, and sorry – I didnt read the NDR:

    !! that pointed out the problem, it was the ISPs smtp server that was on a blacklist! I take it they will sort that sort of thing out themselves…???
