Wordpress Web Design Boulder Profile and Folder Redirection In Windows Server 2003 I’ve always considered dealing with end users to be about as much fun as a trip to the dentist or a tax audit. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to help keep the users happy (a happy user is a quiet user). The techniques that I am going to be showing you in this article center around the use of roaming profiles and folder redirection. Right now you might be wondering how something like roaming profiles can make your life easier. Well, there are several situations in which roaming profiles and folder redirections pay off big time. For example, any decent administrator will instruct their users to save their data on a network drive so that the data gets backed up each night. Another example of how roaming profiles and folder redirections can make your life easier involves a situation in which the user gets a new PC. Another situation in which roaming profiles and folder redirections come in handy is when a user’s workstation crashes. The Anatomy of A Profile Conclusion

HYPER-V,SYSTEM CENTER AND AZURE: Monitoring: Integration Between SCVMM 2012 R2 and SCOM 2012 R2 In our previous post, we have talked about integration between SCVMM 2012 R2 and SCCM 2012 R2 to enable for fabric update. This round we are going to integrate with SCOM 2012 R2. By integration Virtual Machine Manager with Operation Manager, you enable Operation Manager to monitor the virtual environment. This includes all components of Virtual Machine Manager such as VMM Server, SQL database that it uses and any virtual machines, services and clouds that it manages. Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) In addition, by integrating VMM and Operations you can take advantages of Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) features. Through PRO tip, SCOM notifies the operator and recommend an action such as migrating host to a different Hyper-V host. Check on the result of your test PRO Tip either in the Jobs workspace in the VMM console or in the Operations console in Operations Manager Virtual Machine Manager Views There are several views and task become available in Operation Consoles

AZENCE- App Development Boulder Automatic creation of user folders for home, roaming profile and redirected folders. - Ask the Directory Services Team Hi Rob here again. Periodically we’re asked "what is the best way to auto-create home, roaming profile, and folder redirection folders instead of Administrators creating and configuring the NTFS permissions manually?" The techniques in this post requires you to use the environment variable %USERNAME% in the user’s home folder attribute when you create the users account. We will also make use of the “$” symbol in the share name; which makes the share hidden from anyone who attempts to list the shares on the file server via computer browsing. Alright let’s get started. Home directory: Home folders are created automatically when the user’s account is created and an administrator has enabled the use of home folders. Create the folder and enable sharing As you can see we create the share name and added a dollar sign ($) to the end. Next, we’ll configure the share permissions. Administrators: Full Control System: Full Control Authenticated Users: Full Control 1. Configuring NTFS Permissions 1. a.

Failover Cluster Step-by-Step Guide: Configuring Accounts in Active Directory Updated: July 1, 2010 Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 In Windows Server 2008, when you create a failover cluster and configure clustered services or applications, the failover cluster wizards create the necessary Active Directory computer accounts (also called computer objects) and give them specific permissions. The wizards create a computer account for the cluster itself (this account is also called the cluster name object or CNO) and a computer account for most types of clustered services and applications, the exception being a Hyper-V virtual machine. In this guide For additional topics about Active Directory accounts and failover clusters, see the appendixes in this guide: This section describes the Active Directory computer accounts (also called Active Directory computer objects) that are important for a failover cluster. The user account used to create the cluster. The following table describes the permissions required for these accounts.

GPO: Come capire dove sono i problemi Da PierGiorgio Malusardi (MCSE – MCSA – MCT) - IT Pro Evangelist Microsoft Italia Le Group Policy (termine usualmente tradotto in italiano come Criteri di Gruppo) sono uno strumento molto potente per la configurazione e gestione di un sistema informativo basato su tecnologia Microsoft ed in particolare su Active Directory. Attraverso le Group Policy (che indicherò da ora semplicemente con la sigla GP) è possibile configurare ogni aspetto del funzionamento dei computer connessi alla nostra rete aziendale.La loro estrema potenza può in alcuni casi, se usate con scarsa attenzione/progettazione e senza seguire delle “buone pratiche”, generare problemi agli utenti finali nell’accesso alle risorse locali o remote, nell’usabilità del sistema o nell’accesso ai dati. Risalire alla GP che causa di questi problemi può non essere un’operazione banale. In questo breve articolo cercherò di mostrare alcune tecniche e strumenti disponibili per fare l’analisi dei problemi legati alle GP. In questa pagina

Virtualization and some coffee: Live cloning in SCVMM 2012 R2 Live cloning in SCVMM 2012 R2 One of the new nice features in Windows Server 2012 R2 – Hyper-V, is that the hypervisor supports live cloning (live export/import) of virtual machines running on this platform. The VM can either be online, stopped or in saved state. Please note: although this is supported, you should be careful with this feature, as it is seldom smart to power on two machines with the exact same identity on the same network. When is this useful? Imagine you have a virtual machine accessed by a bunch of users. By having the ability to live clone this VM, you can do this without affecting the running virtual machine, and get an identical copy containing the issue, resolve it, and apply these changes to the live VM. To summarize: this little – but important feature very important in a service provider cloud, as well as for the ISV’s and the enterprises where there is development and testing. 1) Find a VM in the VMM console that is running on a Hyper-V 2012 R2 host. Happy testing!
