Thank you for the help. By posting the screenshots, I realized I had a typo in the file extension. .png vs .jpg
Once I double checked them all it now works.

RAID recommendation for Hyper-V host
We are looking to purchase a Hyper-V host to consolidate a few of our physical servers. The two main servers would be our file server and an ERP system. The ERP system is supported on Hyper-V, however their recommended RAID is as follows:
Two drive Raid 1 for the OS
min. 4 drive Raid 1+0 for the data array (15k SAS)
Our ERP data size is around 400GB and our file server data size is around 700GB.
My thoughts were to put the virtual machines OS' on the two drive raid 1 array and the data drives for both our ERP and file server on the second array. At are current data usage, (4) 600GB 15k SAS drives would not be leaving us much more room for growth.
Should I add more drives to the second array or create a third array with less expensive drives since our file server doesn't require 15k drives.
RE: Printer Issue
I had a similar issue with a Cannon before. Check these two things.
- Make sure the printer doesn't require the UFR II driver rather than the PCL or PS.
- Also, I know it sounds dumb but verify the ip settings. I had an issue where the IP was getting dhcp but the default gateway was static and set to itself.
You could also try installing it on your pc (bypassing the printer server) as a test and see if you can get it to print successfully.
Hope that helps.
RE: Dell Perc H710 predicted failure
Update: I had to clear the foreign config on the new drives, however, Open Manage would not display the "are you sure you want to clear the foreign config" message. It just went to a blank page. I had to uninstall OM and upgrade to the current version, then I was prompted about firmware and driver versions. To be safe I upgraded those as well, with reboots in between, took another system image failed the "bad drive" popped in a new one and the rebuild began. Completed in about 5 hours. All is working well.
Thank again all.
RE: Sound System
If you are looking to do it yourself, I would contact Crutchfield Pro Advisor. A free service that will spec out the equipment for you. I have used them a handful of times in the past and the system they designed is still in use and works flawlessly. All we had to do was run the wires and mount the speakers. We have these systems in car dealerships and manufacturing plants. They recommended a 70V system using Atlas Sound speakers and Atlas Sound amp with a Sonos device as the audio source. We also had the volume control for each room. Our advisor was Tony.
RE: CloudFlare Launches Privacy First DNS Service
Anyone using AT&T having issues using 188.8.131.52? It resolves to CloudFlare, however, ping latency is 1ms and a tracert only has one hop which is the 184.108.40.206. Seems like that IP is assigned to the onsite AT&T modem. Is it even worth trying to explain to an AT&T support rep? Seems like it may be a long phone call with no resolution.
RE: Hyper-V Manager Unable to connect to Hyper-V Host from Remote Workstation
Are both machines in the same domain? Has this worked in the past? Does the user you are logged in as have permissions on the Hyper-V host? What is the client os you are using Hyper-V Manager from?
Dell Open Manage Server
I had an older version of Dell OpenManage Server installed under Storage > Physical disks there was a column for Predicted Failure. All drives showed yes. Server is working fine and dual backups are successful each day. I contacted Dell and they first said to update the Open Manage Server software which I did. Now the new version does not have the Predicted Failure column at all. The tech is telling me that the new version will show you if you have a Predicted Failure but if you don't it will hide the column. Anyone run into anthing like this? Dell R210 Perc H200.
RE: Installing Hyper-V 2016
at HQ all on the same domain etc so I reinstall on KVM (XenServer at least)
It has been a while since I was testing this in a workgroup environment, but I had this link in my notes.

Looking for recommendations on software that would allow me to distribute pdf and other electronic documents to external users via a web portal by either providing them a password or secure one-time download link. Requirements would be to track if they have viewed the document and downloaded it and also possibly limiting the number of views or downloads to a certain number. A plus but not a requirement would be to tie some sort of payment capture mechanism that would automate the release of the document once payment has been received. Open source would be great, but also considering hosted services.
Windows 10 Home > Pro upgrade via MS Store
Had a user purchase Windows 10 Pro upgrade through the MS Store so no key was given. We recently did a fresh install and the computer shows Home, I logged the user in with the same account that was used to purchase the upgrade but still will not upgrade to Pro. Anyone else run into this issue and how to resolve?
RE: What are you using for Documentation?
Confluence is a pretty good solution. You can have it hosted or self-host. Cost is minimal for up to 10 users. Has a rich feature set including individual permissions, exporting to PDF and Word, creating templates, easy attachment, and image handling, etc.
Journaling in Office 365
Does anyone have any experience with using journal rules in Office 365? My specific question is can I have two different journal rules (destinations) based on the email address of a user or is it tied to the mailbox.
For example, I have 4 users each with [email protected] and an alias of [email protected]. Could I have two separate journal rules for domain.com going to one destination and domain2.com going to another destination? In other words, having two separate journal rules based on the email domain.
Looking for recommendations on getting the best disk performance out of a SUPERMICRO SYS-5018D-MF. The server case can only hold two 3.5" or four 2.5" drives. Mobo has x2 Sata3 ports and x4 Sata2 ports. I need about 1TB of usable storage total. The use case is a general fileserver for about 10 users but it also will be running the Ubnt NVR as a separate vm so I wanted to optimize for disk writes.
I was thinking about going with (4) 2.5" drives in a RAID 10. Any thoughts on a better configuration?
RE: Desktop photo for all PC's in the domain
@kelly I noticed that once I exported the gpresult. I had since removed it but it didn't change anything. I made sure to run gpupdate and even rebooted a few times. Still shows a black background, however, the correct file is selected in the "personalize" menu to manually set the background.
