For those companies considering an upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2008, it is very important to understand how DHCP and DNS work together to power Windows Server 2008. In this post, you will learn how to configure DHCP to dynamically collaborate with DNS and WINS in Windows Server 2008. Under Windows NT, DNS was static and had to be manually altered to make changes. With the advent of Windows 2000, many administrators were elated to hear that it contained a new feature called Dynamic DNS (DDNS).

Basically, DDNS, in conjunction with DHCP and Active Directory, can provide secure dynamic updates for your A and PTR records in DNS. For example, a client machine receives an IP address from DHCP and then DHCP automatically (as long as it is configured to support DDNS) passes along the host information for that machine to the DNS service. This feature alone can save an administrator a lot of valuable time. Configuring DHCP for dynamic updates Figure A Scope Properties window Configuring DDNS. Understanding Dynamic Update. Domain Name System (DNS) client computers can use dynamic update to register and dynamically update their resource records with a DNS server whenever changes occur. This reduces the need for manual administration of zone records, especially for clients that frequently move or change locations and use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to obtain an IP address.

The DNS Client service and the DNS Server service support the use of dynamic updates, as described in Request for Comments (RFC) 2136, "Dynamic Updates in the Domain Name System. " The DNS Server service allows dynamic update to be enabled or disabled on a per-zone basis at each server that is configured to load either a standard primary or directory-integrated zone. By default, the DNS Client service dynamically updates host (A) resource records in DNS when the service is configured for TCP/IP. How client and server computers update their DNS names Additional considerations: Example: How dynamic update works.

Overcome Windows 2008 R2 backup to network share limitation | Sc@-tt3r-ed Thoughts. Restoring Windows Server to Bare Metal. Introduction Successful disaster recovery is all about preparation because bad things happen when you least want them to. There are several different ways you can restore a Windows server when the system drive fails on it. The approach we're going to walk you through here is simple and straightforward: just replace the failed drive, boot the server from Windows installation media, and launch the restore process.

There are a couple of things to watch for however when you do this as we shall shortly see. Test Environment For simplicity, the walkthrough performed below uses a virtual environment running on Microsoft Hyper-V. Backing Up the Server Let's begin. Figure 1: The server before it crashed We'll map a drive letter to a shared folder named Backups on the Hyper-V host machine so we can store our backup "on the network" when we create it: Figure 2: Preparing to back up the server We enter credentials for accessing the shared folder on the host: Figure 3: Preparing to back up the server. Synchronize time with external NTP server on Windows Server 2008 R2. | m d3velopment. Time synchronization is an important aspect for all computers in a Windows domain. By default, the clients computers get their time from a Domain Controller and the Domain Controller gets his time from the domain’s PDC Operation Master.

Therefore the PDC must synchronize his time from an external source. I usually use the servers listed at the NTP Pool Project website. Before you begin, don’t forget to open the default UDP 123 port (in and outbound) on your firewall. Locate your PDC Server. Open the command prompt and type: C:\>netdom /query fsmoLog in to your PDC Server and open the command prompt.Stop the W32Time service: C:\>net stop w32timeConfigure the external time sources, type: C:\> w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.orgMake your PDC a reliable time source for the clients.

Time should now be synchronizing correctly. Untitled. Daniel B's Tech Blog: SBS 2008 Sqlservr.exe High Memory Usage. Daniel B's Tech Blog: SBS 2008 Sqlservr.exe High Memory Usage.

Windows Server 2008: low disk space (SBS 2008 and SBS 2011) The introduction of Windows Server 2008 brought a lot of remarkable changes compared to Windows Server 2000 / 2003; the most apparent one is its grown appetite for hard drive space.

Out of the box Windows Server 2008 consumes a great amount on C-Drive. However it's only the beginning because a 2008 server often accumulates dozens of gigabytes on top of the post-installation size within one year. Low disk space issues and especially running out of spacle can lead to a wide variety of unpleasant consequences including crashing and database corruption. First let's identify which files or folders might cause the low disk space problem: Here we list potential remedies for disk space recovery. Hibernation File It's a bit unclear why a server would have a need to hibernate however this feature is turned ON by default and it's taking gigabytes of space (the actual number depends on the size of the physical memory).

SharePoint Config database logs are one thing to keep an eye on since they do have a tendency to grow. If you don’t perform a full farm backup usually the log doesn’t get emptied and it just keeps bloating. If you’re running SQL Server Express with default installation, you can find the files in C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQL.1MSSQLData As we see in the example above, even though the database is only 6 megs, the log file grew to 11 gigs.

Let’s reduce that: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. If that doesn’t decrease the database size much, do the following: 1. Select New Query type the following: BACKUP LOG [Sharepoint_Config] TO DISK=’D:configLogBackup.bak’ GO where SharePoint_Config is the name of your config database file and D:configlogbackup.bak is the location and file name of where you’ll make the backup. And click Execute This may take a while if your log file is big. 2. BACKUP LOG [Sharepoint_Config] WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY USE [SharePoint_Config] GO anc click Execute again 3.

Using iSCSI for Windows Image Backup and Bare Metal Recovery with BackupAssist | Jaspreet Chahal. Windows Server Backup – Bare metal restore off iSCSI | BackupAssist: The Windows Backup Software. April 6th, 2011 by Linus Hi All, On Tuesday, I think we performed a world’s first operation on our test environments… a bare metal restore from a backup on iSCSI target, from the Windows Recovery Environment.

The problem is that the WinRE (that you get by booting off the Windows installation DVD on Windows Vista and onwards) does not include the iSCSI Initiator. However, we have been experimenting with our own recovery environment that does include the iSCSI Initiator… and we managed to get it to work! Needless to say, we had a small crowd around our test machine when I “clicked the button” to start the restore… we held our breaths (for around 10 minutes) while the restore took place, and there were high fives when the machine booted back up again.

This feature is still in “proof of concept” stage, so it’s many months away from being included in the main BackupAssist release. Woo hoo! Linus More posts. Baremetal recovery from iSCSI target. Add iSCSI initiator to the Windows Server 2008/2008R2/SBS 2008/SBS 2011 installation DVD | Glenn Matthys. These days, in large environments, iSCSI has become the defacto standard to make block storage readily available to other computers. A possible deployment scenario is attaching an iSCSI target to a Windows server to create backups using the built-in Windows backup software. However, the Windows installation DVD (which is required for a BMR, Bare-Metal Restore) doesn’t come with the Microsoft iSCSI initiator. So we’re going to add it ourselves. This works for all installation DVD’s starting with Windows Vista up to Windows 7 including all server versions. 25/01/2012: the registry entries are now a hyperlink to a file you can download.

WordPress was leaving out the “\ 0″ (without the space) which could lead to all sorts of errors including “initiator instance does not exist”.

By default the MSSQL database is set to full backup (which doesn't help if your backup software doesn't "play nice" with sql).

Problem comes in when after some months, Exchange stop working altogether because the drive has been files by SharePoint's database (namely the replay logs, or .LDF files) To rectify this, you need to: Connect to the sharepoint database in SBS 2008 with the following link: \\. \pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\queryRegain control of the database. As you may or may not know, SharePoint is first installed using the local administrator, which kind of goes in limbo once you enable active directory. You end up with a pretty useless login.
