What is a typical twist lock plug type for server stuff?

Question: What is a typical twist lock plug type for server stuff?

I ran two 20a plugs to my rack and used wire rated for 30a. I was thinking, I should swap those out for twist lock and just buy more wire and run two more 20a circuits. What type of plug is typical for server stuff, and is it 120v or 240v? I want to run whatever I am more likely to need in the future for say, a big UPS, rectifier, etc so that it's there and ready to go.

I'm guessing L6-30? Also do these plugs typically fit in a standard wiring box? Never installed one before.

Ok, I have been building a emulation game system for a while now. I'm using a old pc (pIII 600 MHz) installed with Windows XP. Recently I decided as my first version was pretty successful, I would clear the hard drive and reinstall windows xp. I used Derik's Boot and Nuke to wipe the hard drive. I then set the boot order to boot from the cd first, and inserted the windows xp home cd. I get a error saying DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. I have heard of this being due to a bad hard drive, but I don't see how that would apply here? No other bootable cds work now either (Knoppix, DBAN, etc). Any ideas?

Question: twist caps lock

There are no activity or caps lock lights on the Twist.  On some other models, I think something shows up on the monitor.  Is there any way to get an inicator to show up on the monitor for caps lock?

Answer:twist caps lock

Hey there skiclou,
 
Unfortunately, I was unable to find a way to display a visual notification that the caps lock key had been pressed with our twist. However, I was able to have the machine play a tone/sound any time the caps lock key is pressed. I have listed the instructions below if you would like to try them:
 
 

Go to Desktop Mode,
Pull out the Charm Bar,
Click on Control Panel.
Click on Ease of Access Center.
Click on Make the Keyboard easier to use.
Check Turn on Toggle Keys
Click Apply, and OK

In 7 this used to also be able to make a visual display; but I have not been able to find such so far. I hope this helps. There are a variety of 3rd party utilities that are out that may provide this solution to you, but highly recommend doing your research before selecting one.

Not sure where else to put this - I'm putting together the server rack for our new office space and I'm wondering if there is a standard or most common depth for a server rack. It is adjustable from 24"-36". I know most components have rails that are adjustable to accommodate different depths, so I'm just wondering if there is an average depth that I should set the rack at before I bolt it down to the floor.
 

Answer:Typical/Standard server rack depth?

I don't have a good answer for this but I'd try asking the people in the Networking forum. They can probobly give you a proper answer.

Hey you guys

Everytime i need to setup a Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 server i always get stuck at the DNS part.


I know this happens with a lot of people so i was thinking, wouldnt it be beautiful if we could have some kind of guide on the typical tasks?

Most small businesses need one simple server machine that to do the following:

- user authentification (domain controller)
- file server
- internet sharing
- dhcp server
- local mail


Can we start discussing/working on this?

How do you know if the auto rotate lock is on or off?

Answer:Twist Auto Rotate Lock does not display

Hi, rfpriddy
 
The display for the status of the Auto Rotate function should appear in the top left of the screen. Also, this message will only display if the machine is in an orientation other than the standard laptop mode. When put into tablet or tent mode, the message should display when the button is pressed, which then lets you know whether the lock is enabled or not. If your Twist does not perform these actions, I would make sure all drivers and BIOS have been updated to see if that helps the issue.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

This button when in tablet mode locks and unlocks the auto-rotate.in 'laptop', 'tent', and 'kiosk' mode it is supposed to flip the screen around. This does not work on mine, anyone know what driver needs to be updated?

Answer:Thinkpad Twist screen lock button

I had to experiment with this a little myself, and I completely understand the frustration you have? however there are no driver updates for the auto-rotate at this time.
 
Currently, the twist is designed to auto-rotate by placing the Twist into full tablet mode first, then set the auto-rotate to off, once in the desired orientation move to ?tent? mode.
For ?laptop? or ?Kiosk? mode, start back in full tablet mode and enable auto-rotate to the desired orientation.
 
This solution has worked for me and I hope it helps you as well.

OK, this is the most annoying thing i've ever experienced on a laptop/PC. Basically when I plug something into any of the USB's on my laptop my screen will go black, but if I run my finger across the trackpad it will light back up again for a second and then go black again, this continues no matter how many times i run my finger on the trackpad. If I take the USB out it still doesnt fix, it seems the only way to fix it is to unplug the power source.

If anyone can offer any help with this I will love you long time.

I have an Athlon 650, 512 MB PC running Windows 2000 server edition running Internet Connection Sharing (for cable modem), and IIS 5.0 for several web sites. I also use it as a file server. I usually leave it just sitting there and just update things every once in a while. I don't even have a monitor hooked to it. Should I hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and click the "lock computer" or log out? Would this make it more secure somehow to hacks? I haven't had any problems yet, but I just want it secure as possible.

Any help would be appreciated!

I own a HP G60 series laptop which is about 6 months old. The connector which plugs into the DC power jack on the side of the unit developed an intermittent connection. By this I mean that if you twist the wire at the proper angle you can get it to work.

HP was quick in sending me a replacement power supply at no cost since the unit is still under warranty. However, I would like to repair the old power supply and keep it as a backup by stripping back the cable and soldering on a new jack.

Does anyone know what type of jack that HP uses and where I can get one?

I'll try to keep this series of events in order.. the situation has changed a bit from when the problem first started.

My coworkers computer first displayed the problem yesterday afternoon - pretty obvious malware infection displaying itself proudly as "Windows XP Restore" and claiming infections, bad sectors, etc.. In addition, the desktop was completely blanked out, taskbar icons, display properties & task manager had been locked out and all the programs on the start menu disappeared. In safe mode, the Admin account was unaffected but the normal user account still showed all the same problems.

I managed to restore access to Task Manager, Desktop Props and bring back all the programs & shortcuts that had gone missing. I also was able to stop the "advertisement" from displaying. I've done system cleanings before so I ran HijackThis then MBAM to see if that would clean things out . When I came in the next morning, the system had restarted itself (I expected MBAM's log to be waiting for me). I tried to re-run the scan but now the program wouldn't run - in fact nothing at all would run (unless I dragged a shortcut of the program onto the program file itself.. which didn't always work).

I have the log from DDS, but GMER keeps locking up the machine before it can allow me to save a logfile. I've run it about four times now with the same result.

I'm thinking seriously of just doing a clean install, since she's only up to 15063, has no personal files on the Lappy, and uses it mostly for entertainment. Which is why I'm considering a clean install . . .

The case as you described, Wynona, with little on the lappy, a clean install to blow all that away is certainly a whole lot safer and quicker than trying to find all the pieces, if you could. My vote, clean install!

This is an unusual application for a Twist, but would be curious to know if it's possible and, if so, what BIOS settings are required to permit it.
 
I'd like to take the Twist on the road configured with Server 2012 so I can practice with it for the 70-410/411/412 series MSCE exams.  However, it looks like the only allowable OSes are either Win7 or Win8 (I currently have Win8 installed).  Whenever I attempt to install Server 2012 from (USB) DVD, the installation begins up to the point where I get an error that says "The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation  Enter a different product key."  I'm guessing that one or more of the settings in the BIOS manage this restriction. 
 
The settings I turned off, one by one, in an attempt to correct this are:
- UEFI Secure Boot: OFF
- Secure Boot: Disabled
- UEFI/Legacy boot: Legacy
- OS Optimized Defaults: Disabled
 
None of these either individually or collectively seem to make a difference.
 
Are there other settings I should apply, or is this simply not an option?

I wanted to start up my own business. I am not looking for anything big, I just want to make a bit of extra spending money on the side. I figured if I set up my own business, then I could be flexible with the hours I work to fit around my full time job and school, etc.

Mainly I figured getting a business license and name. Then getting some business cards made and having people pass them around. I figured that would be the best way to start off.

I was looking at doing the small in home installations; like software firewall, anti-virus, anti-malware, etc.

Maybe do some home network installations.

Any suggestions that would make something like this a bit easier? Maybe companies that create above software that give business discounts on bulk items; like Symantec, McAfee, etc?

I don't really have any wholesale/distributor/retailer suggestions for you, but what I can tell you is that side projects like this have a way of snowballing into very time consuming endeavors, especially with the burden of all of the BS that goes into having your own business.

My only advice is this: know exactly what you're getting yourself in to.

Another question, probably a lot easier: is it possible to avoid Windows automatic Optimize this folder for?

Answer:Lock icon size (even if moving a folder or if I plug unplug a storage)

Welcome to Seven Forums Joljo. For the Optimize issue, this seems to be a windows thing, where even though you set everything the way you like, Windows has it's own ideas that said, have a look at the registry edit in this thread

Disable "optimize this folder for..."

It's always advised to make a system image before doing any regostry editing, or at least make a backup of the registry

Why in the Hell is installing SQL server 2000 so complicated? We just got a deal with Webroot to beta test for them on the new SME security suite. I have install SQL server to be able to install the SME server and I keep getting "Please check your values before continuing. (#ER00008IN)" on the SME install. I know it's a problem with the SQL side of it, but what could it be?

Why me?
Why today?

WELIVESECURITY.COM - Aggressive android ransomware in USA: Tricks users with adult videos

ESET researchers have discovered the first known Android lock-screen-type ransomware spreading in the wild that sets the phone?s PIN lock.

Malware writers have stepped up their game, and with the new Android ransom-lockers, detected by ESET as Android/Lockerpin.A, users have no effective way of regaining access to their device without root privileges or without some other form of security management solution installed, apart from a factory reset that would also delete all their data.

Moreover, this ransomware also uses a nasty trick to obtain and preserve Device Administrator privileges so as to prevent uninstallation. This is the first case in which we have observed this aggressive method in Android malware.

CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING

Unlocking the device

The only way to remove the PIN lock screen without a factory reset is when device is rooted or has a MDM solution capable of resetting the PIN installed. If the device is rooted then the user can connect to the device by ADB and remove the file where the PIN is stored. For this to work, the device needs to have debugging enabled otherwise it?s not possible (Settings -> Developer options -> USB Debugging). User can use the following set of commands to unlock the device:


Code:
> adb shell
> su
> rm /data/system/password.key
After running the above commands, the PIN or password lock screen will be remov... Read more

Okay so I was looking around at server motherboards. (I want a server, and I'll hopefully eventually get the money to buy one.)

I noticed that apparently this board doesn't state what type of power connectors it uses.

Now, they may be assuming that everyone of course would know what type it uses, but this seems presumptuous to me.

Well here is your board's complete technical specifications along with recommended power supply; I hope this will help, and good luck for your build.

Hi,

(First of all: I ain't good at English because I come from Holland.)

I own a Satellite A100 PSAA8, it used to be working very well :)
But since a few weeks I have a strange keyboard problem.
I can only type capital letters when caps-lock is off, and I can't type any numbers at all, and a full stop is a: > and a comma is: <
I thought it was a software problem so I formatted the hard disk, then I tried the Toshiba recovery disk.

But it did not work I get a couple of errors with symbol files missing (or something like that) then in the window appears: 0:000 and whatever I am typing it doesn't work. So I grabbed the Windows XP Pro. CD, but when I get to the chapter when I must fill in my serial number, I still can't type any numbers and only capital letters with caps-lock off.

Then I (tried) to install Windows 2000 and still I can't type any numbers, etc.(but the hard disk is empty :S) then I insert a Ubuntu live CD and the keys under ubuntu are working perfect(?). I just doesn't get it. PLEASE HELP!!

Answer:Satellite A100 PSAA8: I can type capital letters when caps-lock is off

Hello Ikke

Believe me it is not easy to say for sure what the problem can be?
Please check if the keyboard is recognized properly in device manager. Be also sure the language settings are the right. So much about possible software reasons for not working keyboard.

It is also possible that there is hardware problem. Maybe is keyboard cable defective or the keyboard controller. It is also possible that keyboard itself is faulty.

In my opinion you should contact authorized service in your country. They can test it with brand new keyboard and see if the keyboard is defective.

I have a server running Windows 2003 Server R2 that was making unauthorized connection attempts to various addresses on the internet.

Three days ago I experienced a huge maleware attack while visiting a bootleg movie site. I was able to clean off two pieces of malware using Malewarebytes Anti-Maleware, Trojan Killer, and Spyware Doctor. However, I still have a few problems that none of the scanners mentioned above have been able to pick up or fix. The first is that I randomley hear bits of audio coming from my computer which sound like commercials and web videos. This happens when I have no web browsers or media players open or active. My second problem is that I reguarly have error messages pop up wich say that Windows Plug and Play or DCOM Server Process Launcher Service have malfunctioned and my computer must shut down. I was able to run the first two scans requested, but am unable to complete the GMER scan without this occuring and my computer shutting down. Finally, during my last GMER scan attempt, my computer went to a blue screen which read the computer must shut down in order to prevent harm occuring to my computer.

The requested logs (except for GMER) are pasted and attached below. Thank you in advance for your time and help!

Hi,

I have an assignment for my E-Business class in which I need to pretty much design and describe what is needed for the backend of an online shop. Basically I need to describe the physical hardware required as well as the software required for an online business. As a absolute noob I have no idea on what is required to build an online business and was hoping you guys here at [H]Forums might help me out.

The only idea of what I think is needed is:

Web Server - ??? (I know I need one but idk what for really)
Email Server to handle weekly advertisement emails
Storage Server Something like Backblaze Pod
PBX Software 3CX, to handle customer support?
Shopping Cart Software
Anti-Spam Firewall Barracuda maybe?

I was thinking maybe I would get some monster Dell Server and then using a hypervisor like VMware ESXi to virtualize some of these servers for scalability. Can anyone help me in describing what software and hardware is needed for an online business and basically what those software and hardware does. And may anyone teach me some of the best practices to implement and deploy these servers.

Thank you,
Jinx
 

Answer:What Type of Server do I Need?

If they want it to be realistic, you should start looking into PCI compliance. Depending on what kind of transactions you handle and the type of information you will store you might find you have some pretty stiff requirements.

Hi everyone, 
 
I am having some extremely annoying issues. I'm new to forum posting about computer problems so bare with me if I do anything wrong. 
 
First off, this error occurs very frequently, about once every 1.5 hours. It happens when I'm either playing games or browsing the web. Sometimes I come back and it restarted on it's own. I've ran Adware to see if there were any problems and it came up saying everything was clean. 
 
I have tried defragging my hard drive and even did a error-checking overnight hoping that it would fix it. 
 
Checking my even manager, it is constantly getting "critical errors" for ID41 - Kernal Power. I have looked online for a fix to this and it seems people that get helped, don't really find a solution (from my searching). If anyone can help, that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there!
Im a first-timer on these forums, so I apologize if I'm sort of naïve to the workings around here. But to get to my problem, I've recently came across a two-fer of problems on this computer. It started with what I believe is adware, and I'm still having issues removing it despite trying MalwareBytes, and many other antiviruses as well as rootkit killers(?). I'm not too worried about that right now, as I have another problem that has wreaked havoc and barely lets me use my computer for more than 20 minutes at a time.
It doesn't seem to have any correlation with certain programs, but I keep getting an error message that says "Plug and Play/DCOM service has terminated unsuspectedly and must now restart." or something along those lines. It can happen immediately when I log onto my computer up to an hour or so after I've logged in and I've been going about my business, but there's no doubt it will happen multiple times in a day no matter what I do or when it happens.
Is there any way to fix this? I use my computer for work so I can't let this keep happening, and I'm not about to reformat it just yet.  Thanks in advance for any advice or fixes!

So here is my story.
 
I was gaming on my PC, as usual, then I randomly opened up a harmless image that I've opened before (and that my friend tested, and said it opened fine for him without issues), and it showed a weird error that I forget. So I dragged it onto my desktop, and tried opening it again. Didn't work. My taskbar icons then disappeared, and Windows just kinda broke. I closed my programs, and restarted my PC. Everything seemed fine for a few hours, until my PC just crashed, and shutoff instantly, as if it bluescreened, but instead of bluescreening, it just went straight to the restart part. After that, time and time again, I tried logging into my computer, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and where the welcome screen should've been, was replaced by a black screen with a cursor in the middle. The windows key did not work, CTRL+ALT+DELETE did not work, Windows Key + R did not work, nothing. However, you could move the cursor. I restarted several times, and it did not fix itself. I had to reinstall Windows, and I was able to get my files back with Windows.Old. Now, instead of crashing, I have a new issue. My Windows Plug and Play or DCOM Server Process Launcher services will terminate unexpectedly, and will try to force shutdown my PC within a minute or so. When this happens, I generally just go in the command prompt and type shutdown /a to abort the shutdown. As far as PC gaming and general file transfer, program opening, downloading stuff, etc. goes, it works fi... Read more

Hi, i work on a game center,
And online games require update periodically..

so i need to create a server where i can store all the latest update.
And the users can sync the up-to-date game folders them through a shared folder.

There's a catch,
The server must be running XP.
Because each game has its own updater, and i can't run those updater in ubuntu or other linux distros.
(I'm aware manual update exists, but it requires user to modify the game folders, it's too risky, so it's not an option)

So far i've been using XP combined with Virtual Box running ubuntu,
why? well for unknown reason XP limits sharing option to 10 PCs, anything above that and it will disconnect the server.

Ubuntu does not have this limit, so the ubuntu v-box is used to create linux-based sharing mechanism so that the clients don't encounter limitation problem..

At first i thought it would solve the problem..
But occasionally XP still get disconnected for unknown reason..
Re-starting the lan doesn't solve the problem,
it always requires a restart to fix it...

So i'm looking for another alternative, maybe another sharing method...
Any idea?

I have WinSSHD from Bitvise running on a computer at home that I SSH into for SFTP. But I noticed that I had some activity from what I guess are bots trying to login with randomly guessed accounts like "orcale", "ftpuser", "root", and random things like that, which kind of makes me chuckle.

Anyway, my first question is, aside from changing settings for lockouts in WinSSHD what else can I do to lock that computer down from attacks like these?

Secondly, I want to hide data exchanges for me and my friends that use this server when they use the SFTP service. I read the Bitvise short guide to tunneling but I couldn't make much sense of it since I am operating over a WAN and not 2 private networks bridged with wireless access points.

So basically I have:
House 1 - 1 external IP with my server behind it @ 192.168.1.107, default gateway is 192.168.1.1

House 2 - 1 external IP with my client behind it @ 192.168.1.85, default gateway is 192.168.1.1

Can anyone provide some guidance on how I should setup the listening and destination ports and IPs and stuff for secure tunneling for S2C and C2S?

Facts:
7 user LAN
Windows XP Home Edition
1 computer acts as a server for common files (using dBase and OpenOffice)

Problem:
I want to add more computers but restrict their access to specific directories on the server and no access to other shared resources.

I am looking for a program that will do that. I looked at UNG, but was unable to see 'users' on the network and thus restrict their access. Other than that, it looked like a good program - did I miss something??

Limitations:
Unable/unwilling to upgrade operating system.

My thanks in advance for you thoughts and guidance.
 

Answer:Network security - need to lock server

You can add access to the Security Tab in XP Home: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/tips/xp_home_sectab.htm and then set folder permissions.

I have tried this and it works. Make sure you are familiar with "Allow" and "Deny" settings or you can lock yourself out.

Hi, my office has a terminal server and every time I launch it with dual monitors the terminal server windows do not lock at the maximum size. I can move the entire terminal server window up and down and side to side just by moving the mouse...it is irritating and not allowing me to use the computer efficiently.

I am hoping someone knows how to resolve this problem. If I use 1 monitor, the screen locks. The other guys in the office with Windows XP do not have this problem either.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Hello,

I've been searching the web for an hour trying to find a solution to this, and I'm sure there must be someone and some way to do this.

In Windows Server 2003, when you run the Terminal Server to allow remote client logins, there is a "feature" the locks down the sesison if the person is idle for mroe than about 5 minutes. When the person comes back to their computer, they have to log in again to get at whatever they were using.

How / where do you find the security option to edit that active session idle timeout value? We want to increase it to about 10 or 15 minutes because its a damn pain in the *** to have to log in to your own session again every 5 minutes. Thanks in advance for any help!

I've been thinking about this lately and it doesn't seem logical for a email server to run on FAT32 or even NTFS. Text based emails are noramllly aroud 1 to 2kb so if they were using NTFS and each email was stored as a separate file, then each email would waste around 2kb of the server's HD. This seems like a massive waste of space. Does anyone know what kind of file system they use?
 

Answer:What type of file system does a Email server use?

the 'email server' will use whatever filesystem the host operating system is using....will it not? I would say if you are THAT worried about disk space usage, AND you have that high of a volume of email coming into your server, you ought to look into buying some 160gb IDE drives off of newegg for your mail server

Sounds to me that what you're looking for is a NAS solution. If you want, go with the do-it-yourself method: get hold of an old machine, install large hard drives, throw WHS/Linux/FreeBSD/whatever, and start serving.

So my buddies got quite the setup. I went to his house a couple days ago and noticed his pc. Asked him if I could show him something on the web and right away I noticed it was incredibly slow. Did a few checked and yup, for sure he had some viruses. So I removed quite a bit of them, defragmented which would speed up the drive he never defragmented since he got it. And basically did as quick of a tune up as I could while I was there. Next thing you know the pc was much better but still seemingly had it's issues (slowdowns, weird stand stills). I looked under the table and realized he had a massive tower. About twice or three times the size of an ATX case. Asked him where he got it, and he said his cousin worked for a computer company. That was some tower they used in a com room I assume or server room or something and they sold it to him cheap when they upgraded at the business place. Right away I checked "My computer" for specs and could see it had two separate 1.50 or 2.50Ghz processors, 4gb of ram, and was running a 32 bit version of Vista.

I fixed as much as we could in a couple hours or so. He was quite happy it was faster. I remember during the process I tried to remove some viruses that wouldn't come off in normal mode so I tried booting in safe mode and it wouldn't actually let me select safe mode at all. I could highlight it but not choose it! Anyways to make a long story shorter I left and he was quite happy. But I did suggest he reinstall W... Read more

Answer:Friend has a Server Type pc, what OS is good to Install on it?

See you been techin'. Nice. :cool

If you could get an installation disk for Vista, could you get the key off the machine and install it? I have used ProduKey, and it seems to work great for this. Also, I can point you to an .iso for Vista if you require one.

Not sure about your drivers issue. I think a fresh installation XP or Vista would get you to the desktop with native drivers even with 2 processors in the PC and all of that, but I'm just not sure about networking. You might need to be prepared with a laptop you can use to fetch drivers and a flash drive to move them.

Good luck with this project. I'll just post here the link for the .iso in case you decide to go with Vista. Click the link then enter the username and password on the password dialog:

http://dreamsupport.us/downloads/windows-pc/-WindowsVista/

Just make sure the version of Vista you use is the same (and 32 bit) as what is on the PC, so any key you are able to retrieve will work.

Hopefully, you will have the key on the box somewhere. That would be nice validation if it matches the key.

If you need an installation disk for XP, just substitute XP in place of Vista in the URL above...

I need to have a windows 2000 box be used as a test platform with access to multiple users (10+) at a time. The connected users must be able to use the box as if only they were the one logged on to it. Currently, there is TVNC running on it but access is only limited to 1 user. Installing windows server is out of the question, is there any other tools available?
 

Answer:terminal server type box for multiple users

Windows Terminal Services/Server and Citrix would both do what you want. Note that when I say Windows Terminal Services/Server I am talking not about the Administrative version but the full version. In other words you need to buy a license, setup the license server, and then install software so that the users can access it.

Hello,

I am experiencing an error in relation to my lock screen. I have my lock screen set up to display a slideshow instead of turning off the monitor. Intermittently, upon returning to my computer and clicking the mouse I receive an error that states the lock screen content server has stopped working and needs to close. Upon acknowledging the error by clicking ok or whatever the button says the error goes away and all appears to be well. This issue doesn't appear to actually effect the slideshow. For me this is mostly just an annoyance but it is something I would like to solve. Upon reviewing my event log I can identify two potentially related errors. One is with LockScreenContentServer.exe and the other is with LogonUI.exe. Both appear to have a common denominator with nvwgf2umx.dll. I have a GTX 670 installed, running the Nvidia 340.52 drivers, which are the current WHQL drivers. I have windows 8.1 64 installed as well as all current windows updates. I also have Classic Shell installed. Currently my lock screen is set to not require a password to log back in. This error has occurred with a password required as well.

This is a copy of an email i sent to Creative, the maker of my modem. It may sound weird because it is directed at them.

I own a Creative Modem Blaster External. I
bought it at CompUSA in America. Your site
doesn't even aknowledge its existence, as it is
not listed on your site as being sold in America,
and the one for sale in Europe is a different
type. Mine installs as a DE5625, while the
european one is DE5720 and its drivers do not
work with the one I have. When I originally
installed it, it would install two copies of
itself, only one of which would work. Even
uninstalling one or both of them and reinstalling
did not fix the problem. This is running windows
98SE. Every time I restarted my system, neither
of the modems listed (even though i only have 1)
would work and I had to reinstall both drivers
every time. One time, it finally only installed
one driver, but when I tried to connect to my
ISP, it would get to the "verifying user name and
password" stage, it would disconnect and give me
a message stating that it was using the wrong
server type setting. PPP is the only type that
will connect to the internet, which it was using,
and I have never run into this error with the old
modem on my PC, or with the Modem Blaster
56kFlashII on another PC I have. I just upgraded
my PC to Windows Me, and the same problem
exists. All modems/PCs connected to the same
ISP, so I know this is not the fault of my PC or
ISP.

We've got our second T570 in and neither of them have worked with WDS.  They're running 256GB NVME drives and I'm sure thats where the problem is coming from.  The guy doing this has done this for a little while so he knows the process, but whenever he boots in to capture the image, he's supposed to select a volume.  When he tries to select a volume he does not see anything, the drop down bar is blank.  She's used shift + F10 to open up CMD and do a diskpart and list disk but it does not see the disk there.  So we thought it was the drivers, so we got the Intel RST drivers from the T570 product page.  Doesn't work.  We tried the SCCM driver package (400+MB) from Lenovo for that specific type and WinPE3.1.  Doesn't work.  We tried a similar package that only included the RST and ethernet drivers.  Still didn't work.  It's WDS running on Server 2012 so it doesn't need the Server 2008 hotfix for NVME support and WinPE 3.1.  Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue before. *EDIT* He has sysprepped it, installed the drivers, and this is our first experience working with NVME / M.2 drives.  Everything else was SATA before this.

Hi everyone,

I am facing an issue when trying to look for the chassis type of computers in my company.
Using the WMI request allowing to get the chassis type number (see here : https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee156537.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396), some computers are returning a wrong chassis type number. For instance, somme desktop are
returning code 16. 16 means that the computer is a lunchbox (assimilated to a server) and it is very confusing to do some deployment using this criteria. Because, when I choose to deploy a software package on all computers with chassis type 3 or 9, some of
them are absent because of their wrong chassis type.
It is very confusing.

If anyone has an idea...

Hey everyone,

I have a customer that we just installed a simple 2012 Remote Desktop Server (Session Based Desktops - NOT VDI) for application and data access. The server is a member server of a 2003 domain connected to a 2003 AD Controller.

Users at the company logon to both traditional desktops and a portion of their users will also now be logging into remote desktop sessions on this new box.

For the most part we have everything working how we want it. I am just having a tough time figuring out how best to lock down the RDS environment to close off administrative items I don't want them playing with. Things like control panel, getting into C drive, etc.

I tried to control a lot of these items from the local group policy editor of the server as I didnt want to mess with their domain group policies hitting traditional desktops, but no matter what I do on GPEDIT.MSC, none of the policies are enforced when domain users log in.

Am I missing something? Are the domain level policies overriding all of my local policies on the server? What is the best/easiest way to do some simple lockdowns for such an environment?

I have read online that some people setup a special OU to move the RDS server into and out of when they are doing maintenance, but this sounds like more of a roundabout then anything. I was hoping to just use local policies to control the gaps I want closed off on that single box.

The number of users hitting this box will number no more than 8 so ... Read more

Answer:Easiest way to lock down a single Windows 2012 Remote Desktop server?

Special OU is the easiest. Also, as long as the users are not local admins, a lot of the items are read-only and really not an issue if they get into them.

Firezilla is just an FTP client, right?  So, it's just a tool to upload and download to/from the server, it's not a tool to edit your HTML files.  To edit your files, you need to either do that on your PC and then upload them to the server or use a web-based editor provided by your web hosting service, where you would log in to your account with them and use a tool such as the cPanel provided by many hosting services.
