To come back around to the initial question, I'll throw GLPI + FusionInventory into the mix as a decent replacement for SpiceWorks. You keep the ability to have your whole IT environment managed and documented in a single system (Equipment, users, ticketing, contracts, contacts etc etc....)

RE: HelpDesk Options
RE: What does your desk look like?
So the laptop is my main driver and runs the 3 displays + it's own.
The lower display to the right is for a workstation that's used for building / maintaining our windows 10 deployment images as well as a GNS3 install that I need to find the time to use to mock-up our WAN / VPN topology.
The fireplace on the arm is a drastically underpowered 20" inspiron all in one touchscreen that had been doing nothing for years so I've taken it, put linux on it and it's just a toy / conversation piece.
EDIT: fireplace has now become an ASCII aquarium
How-To / Community Documentation & Resources
I searched really quickly and didn't find a section or category where folks have been posting useful how-to guides or articles for the community. There are a couple of things that I've worked through lately that could probably be useful to others, just don't know exactly where to stash it on here. As an example, how to make a uefi bootable USB to automatically apply BIOS settings for Dell. In all honesty, my motivation here is as much to share with the community as have stuff like this publicly documented so I can find it if I need to re-do or update it for my own needs.

Good afternoon from Eastern Canada! I'm part of the IT team for a manufacturing company with offices throughout Canada and the Eastern US. Cheers!
RE: Best Backup Solution for 2019
It feels like the OP thinks that this is a seller's forum as opposed to a group of IT professionals looking to help each other out. Or just trolling to waste time. Or a college kid who was given an assignment and is looking for us to provide the answer.
RE: Bad one: SonicWALL Remote Management Vulnerability

RE: Best Linux Live CD for Imaging Windows Drive
@voip_n00b Is it absolutely necessary to take the image from outside of the installed environment? Veeam's free windows agent / application runs within the installed OS so all you really need is remote access to the machine with admin rights and you're good to go. To answer your initial question, if they can't boot and follow clonezilla, I doubt that anything else is going to work out.
TacticalRMM - Security
So I've been testing TacticalRMM in our environment and after reviewing with some colleagues, we need to tighten control to the admin interface. I've followed the instructions here https://wh1te909.github.io/tacticalrmm/securing_nginx/ and it works to block the public IP addresses, but as soon as there's ..... *** googling and a few more grey hairs*****
So the syntax in the documentation might work with escaped chars and other foolishness, but I found that using
SecRule REMOTE_ADDR "[email protected] xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
SecRule REMOTE_ADDR "[email protected] IP1"
allows for use of simple formatting as well as CIDR Ranges
Now we all know!
RE: zabbix5.4 https redirect
Need some help (simple help for you experts)
Installed Zabbix5.4 on Ubuntu 20.04.
But i can't get the http to redirect to https?
If you're using apache one of the options in the following link should work:
RE: WSUS Location
Should WSUS be a separate server / VM or added as a role on one of the 2 domain controllers?
What's best practice, experience?
Best practice is that your DC is never anything other than a DC :) Realistically this is rarely possible, but I personally would never combine WSUS with a DC. Regardless of where you put it, make sure to automate the maintenance scripts from Microsoft's own care and feeding instructions.
RE: I can't even
Taking from a previous post I made about a certain piece of equipment, I've just learned that the equipment must run Windows 7... because of course it does for legacy hardware.
(Nuclear Eye Roll)
So know that pain. State Unemployment app was like that for scanning... Pain ITA.
I see your state unemployment app and raise you old-ass manufacturing equipment.... XP + serial ports... luckily it didn't fall to me to try to convince it to work on something newer, but still. one of the other guys was trying to get virtualized XP to talk nice to the gear with serial pass-through from vbox and couldn't convince things to play ball
RE: I can't even
Users who can't do a proper shut down or restart of their computer. And then complaining that it's dog in winter slow.
Uptime was 22days (not the worst I've seen). Disk and Memory were at 100% usage before restart.....
With the W10 fast-boot / hybrid shutdown I've seen last boot times upwards of 9 months and a year on some machines.
