  3. Repair the bug in Microsoft Access Database engine 2010

    The KB4484126 and KB4484238 introduce a critical bug in Microsoft Access Database engine 2010.
    On Windows Server 2012, IIS App Pools running Access MDB databases are constantly crashing with these KB installed.
    Experiences on many production-level websites, running under 32-bit App Pools.
    Once these KB's are removed, IIS App Pools stop crashing, and are back to a normal state.
    The cure is worse than the CVE cause.

  4. nslookup - allow setting the source ip address

    When connecting to different networks with different dns servers, you often need to specify the correct source IP address but currently nslookup has no option for this.

  6. Windows Updates shouldn't fail constantly or take hours to complete

    I have a number of 2016 servers. It seems like 99% of them fail when doing automatic updates. I am able to install them manually by going through sconfig and selecting option 6 but it takes FOREVER. During installation, the CPU or Memory isn't maxed out at 100% so I have no idea what is causing it to take forever. All other previous versions of Windows run and install updates just fine in the same VMware environment.

  7. Repair Task Scheduler on Server 2019

    I have been fighting task scheduler for a while and have determined that there is most definitely an issue with task scheduler

    we have a batch file that calls an executable.
    We can run that batch file from the file explorer and we can watch with a ui and see all the different actions being taken, typically about 120 lines of actions. and this typically takes about a minute and a half to run.

    When we put that same batch file in task scheduler and run it on maybe a reocurrance of every 10 minutes, task scheduler starts the task,…

  8. AOVPN

    Hi Team,

    AOVPN documentation is not clear and leaves lot of open questions.


    1. Documentation doesn't clearly call out the Infra requirement for Device Tunnel...do we need NPS Server in device tunnel or not? What is the authentication flow?
      2.Where does the logs stored in RRAS Server and how to redirect to SQL for repository? etc

    2. Is it possible to configure device tunnel and user tunnel using same RRAS/VPN Server?

    4.In below document, looks like information regarding device tunnel is incorrect and its contradicting

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-access/vpn/vpn-map-da
    Functional Area:
    Use of a dedicated Infrastructure Tunnel to provide connectivity for users not signed into…

  9. ADFS 2019 DirectoryProperties disable autodiscover

    Hello,
    for ADFS 2019, there is a new cmdlet added, that autodiscovers the UPN's in the domain. This also discovers domains to which it doesn't have permission and thus gives errors in the eventlog.

    An option should exist to disable autodiscovery and only configure UPN's manually.

  10. ADFS Export/Import Relying Party Trusts

    Get-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust should export a completed powershell script for Add-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust, this will solve your import issue, and make it easy for people to migrate servers, or even automate relying party migrations.

  16. Free Comunity Edition of Windows Server 2016

    It is possible, create a free limited cominity edition of MS Windows Server 2016, some thing like Windows Nano? Developers for .NET Core can deploy on this version web application and only. There is no need of most available WS2016 services and utilities, like active directory.

  18. Make openSSH work without it being a science project

    Installed old copSSH, worked, installed Windows openSSH, didn't work. All sorts of people on internet saying "try this" or "try that". I need to do, not try. Windows should make it seamless, that's the power of Windows over Linux. You shouldn't need a masters degree in command line options to set.

  19. [bug] RDS clipboard not working if disk mapping disabled

    I just found out that in Windows Server 2016 and 2019 if you disable disable option to allow mapping local Disk then clipboard is not working.

    As for now i never needed to restrict RDS to only support clipboard so i didn't catch this but i think this is a big issue.

    SO if you have configuration like in attachment then rdclipt won't start and you cannot user clipboard between client and server :/

  20. Add service trigger info to WMI's Win32_Service object

    The trigger info for scheduled tasks exists in WMI, but why not for services? The Win32_Service object needs to be updated to contain all info about a service, including trigger info!
