    Thanks Wullieb. I subscribed to 365, and it looks great, and I have been granted 1 TB of space in OneDrive, which is amazing! , for just 9 euro per month.

    Well, in previous versions you paid 200 euros and you had it for three years, maybe it was cheaper.

    None whatsoever Ossian.

    I did not say “I believe”. Here is what I wrote:

    “… There is something I don’t understand:
    In the future, 90% of the companies will have their IT infrastructure in either AWS, Azure, Google , or a very other few providers ?, just as you join a phone provider over the other ? …”

    365 is not AD.

    So, if my company joins 365, with Exchange online, and a bunch of users (my workers) …is that not AD, in the cloud ?

    I don’t mean to sound disrespectful here but there are no statements. There is a question mark in each sentence, I believe. :)

    in reply to: Backups in the Cloud #380022

    I see, thanks.

    That might be the well-known shadow copies ?

    But, for instance (I asked this two days ago) , if something gets wrong with AD or Exchange and I want to rely on my yesterday’s backup , can I do that ?

    I think it is now “SkyDrive”, but I get your point about “whatever they are calling it this WEEK”, hehe

    I guess OneDrive, SkyDrive, is now the File Server.

    All is changing! :/

    Thanks again.

    in reply to: Whales: Cloud providers #380021

    As I see it:

    Long ago, many companies had their own electricity system, and maybe two electric technicians onboard, on a daily basis, because the system was not reliable at all, at these days, so failures would occur every other day.

    Then, three or four huge companies offered a very reliable electricity system, and companies pay them monthly, not needing an electrician on premises anymore. The Big company would bring an electrician when a (rare) failure would occur.

    I think there is a parallelism with the “Whales IT cloud providers”

    Thanks joeqwerty.

    1. I said 90% meaning = almost all

    2. So, they only gave me the servers? a bunch of redundant servers? , if AD gets corrupted, they won’t come to help ?. So, all the companies will still need a System Administrator: Exchange, AD, Backups ? , because again, as little as I know, onedrive will be the new file server on the cloud, redundant servers, so you don’t have to worry about clustering, failover… Correct me if I am wrong, I am really new to the Cloud ( but eager to learn)

    3. You lose internet access….

    Now that I come to think about this, a pc or any other device is nothing without the internet. I think.

    Nowadays, ISP Providers guarantee 99.99% uptime, and they are more and more reliable.

    I haven’t had any internet related issued for years, and when I have them, it takes minutes.

    Probably that will be the trend: ISP will guarantee 99.999% uptime, or 99,99%, that is some minutes in a whole year. :)

    in reply to: Exchange 2010 with NLB, in VMs #380018

    I saw that article Ossian (before posting the question) and it is about changing the MAC address but in the blog it is said the issue is solved by spoofing the MAC of the VM.

    If you lose internet connectivity, there is not such thing as “work off-line” ? … Outlook has always had that feature. :)

    Who else can access your data? …Yes, I have a friend who always insists on that too.

    I thought the data was encrypted in the cloud, …too naive?

    I like the Cloud, maybe the “offline” work should be improved , a cache in the machine with all your office 365 documents, and only the changes are synchronized ?

    I personally like the Cloud, to have my documents in the cloud rather than in my physical disk.

    There is something that I like about that:

    1- No need to back up
    2- You go to Tokyo tomorrow, and you have those documents for you and not tied to a machine

    in reply to: Requesting a certificate for a RDS Gateway #380014

    Answering myself:

    Yes, if you add a dns suffix to the RDS Gateway (which is not domain-joined) , the certificate request goes just fine.

    I have another question:

    If I had some internal RDS Servers (LAN, behind the internal firewall) , then the Certificate should be a SAN ?

    in reply to: Requesting a certificate for a RDS Gateway #380013

    I am pointing the RDS Gateway machine’s DNS to the internal DNS server (DC1) , through a rule in the isa firewall, and it works fine.

    Yet, following that article, the certificate’s common name is a FQDN, whereas the RDS Gateway server does not have a FQDN, just a netbios machine.

    But, would not I need netbios (137, 138, 139) traffic going and coming through the firewall?. The machine I want to shutdown is in the DMZ, and mine is in the LAN.

    “shutdown computer_name…..” (not FQDN computer name), that is, the netbios name I believe.

    If you want to bounce the machine instead of shutting it down, use ‘restart_computer < name> -force’.

    Since there is a firewall in between, should I not point to the IP rather than to the computer name ?

    If you have remote management enabled on the machine in the DMZ, and your firewall allows RPC traffic thru, you shouldn’t have a problem.

    Yes, this is what I did, but a nuance: I allowed 3389 through the firewall, not RPC.

    I don’t know what a PS cmd is, I will look into it, thank you so much!

    The thing is that this machine is in the DMZ, hence, ISA Server is in the middle ( in my labs I used ISA or TMG firewalls ). :)

    Wow, 8 GB. That is impossible for my humble budget. :(

    Thanks both.

    ​Ossian, the specs: 50 GB of Hard disk. 2 GB RAM.

    Exchange related services did not start. I rebooted the machine three times. I was guessing it was a low RAM, but then I read that and, unlike joeqwerty, I thought that “not supported” actually meant “it won’t work.”

    The firewalls in both the DC and the Exchange machine were ON.

    So now I am installing it on a 50 GB fixed Virtual Hard Drive.

    Ohh, I am so sorry,

    I forgot to post the solution, it was something very obvious, but it was some days ago…. I really apologize !

    Maybe is what Wullied pointed: “modifyvm” , and I wrote “modify”

    Again: My apologies. It won’t happen again.
