Recently had a problem with a Powershell script that was configured via Group to deploy at start up.
The problem I had was that no matter what the script would never run. Doing a GPResult /z it would show me the script is being applied but with the following message:
Last Executed: This script has not yet been executed.
After much searching and testing I found that the script would run if I removed the spaces in the script name.
I know its a simple mistake but the server did not tell me that it could not find the file.
I found the interesting post on how to configure your computer to serve as a wireless access point.
1. Open command prompt as administrator
2. netsh wlan show drivers Look for Wifi driver – find ‘Hosted network supported’ – if Yes, then OK
3. netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=your_chosen_ssidkey=8_or_more_character_key
4. netsh wlan start hostednetwork
5. Go to network and sharing center –> Change adapter settings. Right click your internet connected adapter and go to properties. Click the sharing tab. Check the ‘allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection.
Create a shortcut to the command in step 4 preceeded by ‘cmd.exe /c ‘ and stick on the desktop or wherever to make it easier to start the hotspot after rebooting. Remember to change the shortcut properties (advanced) to run as administrator. To stop the hotspot, replace start in step 4 with stop.
Exchange 2007/2010 to 2010 migration = Don’t need to create new SMTP connector in Exchange 2010 – Just add Exchange 2010 as source server and after migration remove old server as source.
Exchange 2003 to 2010 migration = Need to create new SMTP connector on Exchange 2010 server.
You will receive the below error when you try to the add the new Exchange 2010 server to the SMTP connector that already exists in Exchange 2003 (In Exchange 2010 EMC). Exchange 2010 doesn’t recognize the 2003 SMTP connector so a new connector has to be created.
I’ve had to search around a bit to find all the commands to enable remotely connecting to Server 2012 using powershell.
#To enable remote connections on the server:
#To connect remotely from your workstation
Enter-PSSession -computername Server_Name -Credential administrator
Remember you have to use the server name and not the IP address otherwise it will deny you access.
I had an issue with very slow copy performance when trying to copy from a server to a virtual machine when the virtual machine is running on Server 2012 Hyper-V.
It seems there is an issue with Broadcom NICs to resolve the issue edit the physical nic in question and disable the option called “VirtualMachineQueue”
This resolved it for me.
So you’ve installed the Hyper-V module in Server 2012 and are ready to start setting up your virtual environment but for some reason you cannot access the Hyper-V manager.
The reason is you need to add the Hyper-V management tools as a feature.
Go to add features in Server manager and the tick the box below:
You have moved all the mailboxes to the new server but can’t send any outgoing mails.
To resolve this make sure that the new server has been added to the ‘source’ server tab on the new servers send connector.
When you take a look at the logs you find the following error:
Log: [REQUIRED] The nominated Exchange server for offline address book ‘New Offline Address List’ has been deleted. Nominate a valid server and restart setup.
To resolve this you need to point offline address book to a valid server on the SBS2003 server.
Below describes how to install programs on a Terminal Server and prevent users from logging in during the installation progress.
change logon /disable
change user /install
change user /execute
change logon /enable
