Someone looking at this thread had a hard time figuring out how to open the registry editor after booting to CLI mode from the 2008 R2 media. from the command line, type regedit and hit enter, it will load.
When we work strictly from Windows Server Core installations we need to be able to do everything from the command line, even user management. Let's add a user that already exists into a group that already exists in Active Directory using only PowerShell.
To do this we have the handy Add-ADGroupMember PowerShell commandlet. This is very easy to use in its basic form, all we need is the name of the group and of the user that we want to add. In this case, I want to add user jane to the group "Domain Admins".
Add-ADGroupMember "Domain Admins" jane
That's it, jane is added automatically. This process, like most, is silent on success. To verify that all is as we want it to be, we can use the Get-ADGroupMember command to look up the members of a group.
Get-ADGroupMember "Domain Admins"
Can also do
Add-ADGroupMember -identity "Domain Admins" -members "jane" -WhatIf
to see if it gets added before actually running the command.
Good article. There is ZERO reason to have a GUI on a Domain Controller. Everything can be done through Server Manager on Windows 10/8
You mean RSAT
Both? You can do a lot of directory management through Server Manager as well.
Ok, agree. Just don't like the Server Manager this much, ugly interface. I want to be sure WHICH drive on WHICH host I'm going to format for example. But that is just my personal opinion and I'm more or less a console fetishist
But when it comes to ADSIedit or AD sites, you really want to have RSAT.
Those options are generally only there is RSAT is installed.
DDoS depends on public addresses acting as a clients pounding your DNS server with thousands of recursive queries at once. If your DNS server isn't public, then it isn't a open resolver, and a client on the internet can't query it directly.
In our case, we have a local DNS server, available to the internet, as a backup to our ISP-hosted DNS. This server is typically vulnerable. But it's set with a higher cost so it won't be used unless ISP goes down.
I'm unfamiliar with the Server Core setup... but can't you install these drivers as part of the Windows installation process?
Storage yes, but I'm unaware of a simple way during a stock install to include other drivers. The storage ones are requested, and necessary, during the install. Otherwise the installation location does not show up (unless you don't use VirtIO block devices.) You can definitely add the tools into an image, and there is probably a way to include Ethernet devices ahead of time, but I'm not used to the installation process to know where it happens.
I just select all 3 of the INF files and go... It's always installed everything for me, lol... Just point it at the folder for the right OS and 32 or 64 bit... (Note: This is the way I did it in Scale v4.3... I've not had a chance to use their newer stuff yet.
At what stage are you selecting them?
During the install process... the same place where you go when you're picking the storage drivers.
I rarely do modifications at that stage. Still, handy to have a simple option because a lot of people will get the install done and find that there is no networking and need to know what to do at that point.
No, it doesn't support this. RAID 1, you are correct, but Parity RAID 5 or 6 it does not. The OS needs to be up and running to be able to manage the parity RAID so you can't use it for the system install, only for extra data volumes.
That's why NO ONE complains about the minimum wage being too high, they complain that the minimum wage is "too close to their wage."
Definitely seen that a lot, it's weird.
I've completely missed this on Facebook somehow.
Oh it is huge. I've seen it from a lot of different people... mostly those that earn only a little more than $15/hr and/or military. I've also seen military people mocking those people for not understanding how pay works in the private world.
I've seen the low wage workers arguing this. I have also seen high wage and business owners making the same argument. Everyone I know in the military, except for that one RWNJ who joined just to shoot people, is for a wage increase.
Apparently, when have they NOT? Where does this "first release" myth come from? Other than the unique case of Vista, which was a true first release of NT 6.
This is NOT a first release, this is the latest version of NT 6. If you have concern about lower releases, then that would make you install this as this is the latest update to NT 6.
On the desktop side, I typically have always felt the first releases (like the now defunct Windows to be shaky. I do not think that is a myth.
There was not a single functionality issue with Windows 8.
Honestly, there was not a single problem with Vista either as long as your hardware worked with it. Vista had a driver compatibility problem.
Well this is not entirely true. Vista also included a brand new network stack that they wrote that had TONS of holes in it. They dumped that stack with 8.1 though.
Three hosts, each running two Windows Server VMs, each with two sockets. Say Dell Power Edge R610 or HP Proliant DL360 nodes. Windows Standard Licensing.
Cost per license: ~$700
To license each node to run its normal load is $700 for a total of $2,100.
If we want to address the ability of any node to be a failover for the others or for non-disruptive maintenance, we need an additional license per machine. So we suddenly jump from $700 per node to $1,400 per node and the whole cluster jumps to $4,200 while gaining nothing during normal production times.
Now that only addresses single node failover. If we want to maintain the ability to do failover during times of maintenance we need yet another license for each machine! That means $2,100 per machine and $6,300 for the cluster.
Suddenly $350 per virtual machine in licensing has exploded to $1,050. A non-trivial increase.
Now we can choose which level and which features we want, but typically the value of an inverted pyramid is sold based on this top level of flexibility. If we are dealing with Data Center licensing this is more obvious and far less complex, but SMBs would rarely pay for that level of workload and may not think through the additional costs that this style of architecture potentially bring to the table.
