    in reply to: powershell not able run on remote #617272

    Hi Vignesh.

    I’m assuming the CSV is local on your computer but you want the remote computer to use it. You could import the CSV locally and then use it on the remote computer.

    e.g.:

    Note the use of “using:” in the variable. That indicates that the variable to use is from the local computer and not the remote computer. More info: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/about_remote_variables?view=powershell-6

    in reply to: File Copy & Paste Using GPO – 2016 Server #615154

    Group Policy Preferences would be the way to go most likely.

    Check out these links for some clever ways of creating and updating a file if need be.

    https://www.adamfowlerit.com/2016/07/group-policy-preferences-replace-existing-file/

    https://thommck.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/use-group-policy-preferences-with-wmi-targeting-to-copy-files/

    Note: when choosing the destination path, you can pull up the group policy variables by pressing F3. (they are different than the a computer’s environment variables)

    For your situation, the path would be %AppDataDir%\SAP\SAP GUI\<name of config file>

    in reply to: DFSR Conflict Issue #615150

    That error is specific to DFSR. So multiple users accessing a file on Site1 server wouldn’t generate that issue. The error is there because something modified the file on Site2 server and something else modified it on the site1 server.

    These modifications don’t have to be users accessing the data and changing things. It could be something as simple as the archive bit being cleared by the backups running on the site2 server.

    Here’s a blog post on troubleshooting a change storm but it should give you details to dig into the logs to see what is being changed. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askds/2012/06/01/whats-causing-that-dfsr-change-storm/

    What ever processes you have running on the Site2 server, make sure they are not modifying any of the data or metadata of the DFSR files.

    in reply to: Unable to protect shared folder #614775

    Did you remove Full Control permissions from the root folder? Everyone needs read on the root, then set permissions as you desire on the subfolders as you indicated.

    • Share permissions: Everyone Full Control
    • NTFS permission on shared folder: Everyone Read, admins full control
    • NTFS permissions on subfolders: grant as you specified.

    That’s a good point. That will probably come in handy if I’m deep in some nested folders and need to run some commands there.

    I agree with Blood. Run those checks. Also check the local administrator group membership on the file server.

    And…. remove full control from the root. Users only need read access. With full control they can take ownership and change permissions on the subfolders.

    in reply to: How stable is Office 365? Can I trust the cloud? #614628

    For a lot of the clients I manage power and internet are the weakest links and they’re small enough where it’s not cost effective for them to get redundant connections or generators. For those clients, even with the outages, O365 is still a win. Also, what my clients currently see as most critical is Exchange Online closely followed by Sharepoint Online. And a much smaller category is the Dynamics 365 clients where that is critical as well. The other services could be down without too much impact.

    My questions would be:

    1. Is there a common thread among all the outages?
    2. Are we looking at all O365 services as a whole for uptime and should we be? Or should each major service be evaluated separately?

    I never knew that. :) I’ve always just did WinKey+R then typed the command… until windows 7. From then on I just hit the WinKey and start typing for whatever I want.

    in reply to: Data segregation within a tenant #614573

    In O365 you have no control over where the data resides. It is all controlled by permissions. If you require the data to be isolated from other users and tenants on its own servers then you will have to setup your own infrastructure for Sharepoint and Exchange.

    in reply to: Win10 security patch testing #614533

    I’m not in this realm very much. There’s probably some methodologies and software to automate this but I’m not familiar. But I imagine the basics would be:

    1. Make a test plan that would verify any functionality of the OS and applications in use
    2. Setup a testing environment
    3. Go through the process of updating and running through the test plan to identify issues.

    How large is the environment you’re managing?

    Hi ghissoun.

    What type of data and where is it stored? You can use security groups and permissions most likely.

    “But without that stuff, are they any better than a network security group when deployed in Azure?”

    I would say probably no. ;-) The built-in proxies that don’t need a subscription can verify compliance to the protocol. It’s good to have but has limited use. The subscription services are where it’s at, IMO.

    Domain naming master has nothing to do with logons.

    Do the clients have any other DNS servers also configured?

    If primary is “down” is it turned off and not responding to pings?

    If primary is down, can a workstation logon after rebooting?

    in reply to: Domain Credentials #614423

    You can add the domain user or group to the computer’s local Administrators group. (domain computer, domain joined computer, and computer on the domain are all common ways of referring to the same thing)

    You can use group policy and restricted groups to control the membership too if you like to apply it to many computers and not just one at a time like the above method. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/279301/description-of-group-policy-restricted-groups

    You may want to use LAPS to control the local administrator account: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/mt227395.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    Also note that by default all users can join up to 10 computers to the domain. Here’s info on how to configure that: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/5446.active-directory-how-to-prevent-authenticated-users-from-joining-workstations-to-a-domain.aspx

    in reply to: Windows Powershell ISE (As Administrator with two ps1-files) #614421

    There’s several ways to accomplish this with the noprofile option. From powershell:

    Start-Process -FilePath powershell_ise.exe -ArgumentList “-File”,”C:\test\test1.ps1,C:\test\test2.ps1″,”-NoProfile” -Verb RunAs

    From command prompt:

    RunAs /User:domain\username “powershell_ise.exe \”C:\test\test1.ps1,C:\test\test2.ps1\” -NoProfile”

    Note the backslash to escape the double quotes used in the arguments.

    Of course there’s more ways to do it too. :)

    I messed around with the Watchguard a tiny bit. My clients use a lot of Watchguard on-prem. So far the single node and throughput wouldn’t be an issue for the deployments I manage. But I have yet had the need to use anything yet as users are looping through their offices to connect to resources. We’ll most likely be moving to a more direct connection in the future. I’m hoping Watchguard will improve on their capabilities and documentation. :-)

    Aidan, do you think Windows 2019 will make it easier to spec out and deploy S2D? Windows 2016 made the process difficult if one doesn’t go with the vendor prebuilt options, IMO.

    Hey Russell, nice article.

    I personally think certs are a good thing. I never pursued a cert for getting a job or more money. It’s always been to learn the product and I’ve found that going after the cert helped me learn all areas better and explore areas that I wouldn’t use normally.

    in reply to: Boot from LUN #613540

    Hi mytamhuyet,

    I have to ask, if you’re moving the LUN off the storage because it EOL, why are you still running Windows 2003? It’s been EOL for many years.

    Can I also ask if there’s some reason you’re not migrating the services to another server instead of continuing with Windows 2003?

    Hi Richatct

    Going through and testing it out might not be worth it. Windows 7 will be out of support in less than a year so I strongly suggest upgrading to Windows 10:

    What is the message you get? Is it a screen you normally don’t see or is it the regular Windows Logon screen and your password isn’t working?

    I agree with Blood, if you have a backup, reformat and reinstall. If you get the normal Windows logon screen then you can use the Offline NT Password and Registry Editor and see if that works for you. https://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

    If it’s not the normal logon screen then you’ll need to determining what malware was used to “encrypt” your computer so you can see if it is reversible or not.
