Windows 2008Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Simple Steps To Gets Microsoft Certified

clock February 6, 2017 19:05 by author Dan

According to windowsnetworking website. Learn the certification options and the best certification resources to get certified on Microsoft's flagship enterprise management product line - MCTS certification options.
Introduction

In a recent article, Overview of Microsoft System Center product line and how it can help you, I covered the critical facts of System Center. As a follow up to that article, let's talk about certification! Microsoft System Center is Microsoft's flagship enterprise management product line, made up of 6+ major products. As this is both a critical product for Microsoft and a critical product for enterprises that adopt pieces of the System Center suite, Microsoft offers MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist) certification options for System Center. While I don't see a way to use these exams toward a MCITP, you will still have a MCTS in a System Center specialty. Specifically, there are 3 different certification tracks available for System Center which covers just 3 of the 6+ System Center products (but 3 of the major SC products).

MCTS: Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, Configuration

Formerly known as SMS (Systems Management Server) in previous versions, SCCM is used to manage the PC, laptop, and server hardware and software (including applications and operating systems) of a mid to large size enterprise. Microsoft Exam 70-401 covers a number of important SCCM 2007 skills. Specifically, the exam covers things like:

  •     Deploying SCCM
  •     Configuring SCCM Infrastructure
  •     Managing Resources
  •     Distributing Applications
  •     Deploying Operating Systems
  •     Securing a Network Infrastructure
  •     Managing and Maintaining SCCM Infrastructure

As for training material, here are some recommendations:

  1.     Video Training: Train Signal System Center Configuration Manager
  2.     Classroom Training: 6451B and 6451A- Planning, Deploying, and Managing Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007
  3.     Book: Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Administrator's Companion

MCTS: Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007, Configuration

Formerly known as "MOM" (Microsoft Operations Manager) in previous versions, SCOM is used to monitor performance capacity resources (and alert) across all devices in the enterprise. Microsoft Exam 70-400 covers skills like:

    Configuring SCOM
    Deploying and Configuring Management Packs
    Building and Deploying Custom Management Packs
    Maintaining SCOM
    Configuring Client Monitoring

(For the full list of SCOM Exam 70-400 test topics, click here)

Some of the best resources available to prepare for your SCOM certification test are:

    Train Signal System Center Operations Manager video training
    Microsoft classroom  training: 50028D- Installing and Configuring System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2
    Microsoft E-Learning: 3386AE Implementing Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007

MCTS: Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Configuration

The last of the three MCTS certifications covering System Center products is the MCTS covering Virtual Machine Manager. SCVMM or VMM is a centralized management product for the Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization platform (it can also manage VMware ESX Server). With VMM, the ability to perform many new advanced features of Hyper-V is possible.

To prepare for Microsoft Exam 70-403, I recommend the following resources:

    Installing SCVMM - server components, administrative console, self-service portal, pro tips
    Administering SCVMM - configuring user roles, setup self-service, maintain VMM library, configure hosts, monitor jobs
    Maintaining and Monitoring hosts - configure VM hardware, manage virtual instance checkpoints and patches, monitoring and reporting on VMs
    Deploying and Migrating VMs - convert P2V, move VMs between hosts, deploy VMs, deploy HA in VMs

(For the full list of SCVMM Exam 70-403 test topics, click here)

One of the best certification resources I have read on this lately is the Train Signal Certification Guide for  Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM Exam 70-403). In fact, that certification guide recommends the following resources to prepare for the SCVMM 70-403 exam:

    Classroom training : 6331A- Deploying and Managing MS SCVMM
    E-Learning: 6896AE- Configuring MS SCVMM 2008
    MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-652): Configuring Windows Server Virtualization by Ruest
    Mastering Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 by Michael and Linares

Of course, the best preparation for any certification exam is actually using the product (and especially in the "real-world" on a production network, if possible).

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Remote Web Access login page Redirect

clock January 30, 2017 07:06 by author Dan

According to windowsserveressentials website, The issue about Remote Web Access login page Redirect is relatively simple one, in previous versions of Essentials, visiting http://server or http://server.remotewebaccess.com it would automatically redirect you to the RWA Login page at /remote. In 2016 this is not occurring.

In 2012 R2 this behaviour is controlled via default.aspx in particular, this line.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.Web.RootSite._Default" %>


Looking at the Content of the Default Web Site in 2016, we can see the standard IIS InetPub wwwroot folder. This is odd because usually in Essentials that path has been updated to C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\WebApps\Site.


I had previously posted that we should update the PhysicalPath of the Remote Web App web site to match previous versions of Essentials. Doing so corrected the Redirect, however resulted in the below message.

I opened a support case with Microsoft regarding this behaviour and after some time was informed this behaviour was by design. Without any explanation or documentation of changing this feature.

The ‘correct’ way to solve this, is using an HTTP Redirect as shared originally by TechSpeeder, or by educating the user to enter the correct address.

We are still (some months later) yet to hear back from anyone at Microsoft about this or any other issue we have raised with Essentials 2016.

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Tips To Solve Windows Networking Issues

clock January 23, 2017 08:38 by author Dan

Almost every home today has more than one device that connects with the WiFi network in the house. Some desktops and laptops you want to connect to your WiFi network may be running different versions of Windows. Many other devices are running a completely different operating system, typically Android or iOS. Getting disparate devices and operating systems to work together on the same network can be a challenging task.

Let’s troubleshoot some of the most common networking problems in Windows.

Connecting to the network

You will most probably have issues with network connections when you try connecting a new computer or upgrade your OS. There could be multiple reasons for this. Here is a look at a few of the common ones:

Upgrading OS: When you install a new version of an OS, it can wreak havoc on the network connections. You might face various issues based on whether you upgraded or installed from scratch. If you have upgraded, you may have to reinstall the network drivers to get the WiFi working properly. The simplest way of doing this is by downloading the latest drivers from the manufacturer’s website.

IPv6 or IPv4: This is a bizarre problem. IPv4 is the most commonly used IP addressing system around today. But there is a shortage of IPv4 addresses. That is where the new IPv6 system comes into the picture. It is not quite common yet. So while it would be nice to have the option of IPv6 addresses, you should stick to IPv4 if you are still running any OS other than Windows 10.

File sharing


File sharing is something that can end up being a major problem with Windows at some point in time. Even for something as simple as copying files between systems and devices, you may face some issues. Here are a few methodologies you could consider. This is a common network problem when you upgrade your version of Windows in general.

The easiest way around this is to enable Simple File Sharing. The only problem with this is that the network will be less secure.

Be sure to enable file and printer sharing. Go to the Network & Sharing Center. Go to change advanced settings and make sure network discovery, file, and printer sharing are turned on. No, you do not turn on the microwave to cook some popcorn. That you do later when your network is working.

Now, if you are using Windows Home Server, it is not as easy for you to take advantage of file sharing. You will need to have an account and the login info, of course. There will also be the added annoyance of needing to log in each time you connect. This is especially irritating if you have to log in frequently. It may not be as annoying as your loud neighbor who listens to unnerving music all the time, but it is bothersome.

To get around this problem, what you can do is go to your user account, and uncheck the option that says users need to enter a username and password for using this computer. This is not a wise thing to do, though. It is better for you to maintain separate accounts with separate passwords while using a regular Windows 10 computer to create the HomeGroup. Also, if you choose to do this, remember that you will not be able to create more than 10 connections.

Networking

Sharing files on Windows 10 with computers running an older Windows OS can be confusing. Windows 10 comes with a couple of features that may frustrate those who are attempting to connect to Windows 10 systems from older libraries and HomeGroups.

On Windows 10, you get the opportunity of creating a HomeGroup. A password will be generated, which you will also enter on any other Windows 10 computer that you put on the same HomeGroup. This makes it very easy to connect Windows 10 computers with each other.

But old operating systems Vista or XP don’t have a HomeGroup. There are two options for connecting with older computers:

  • First, you could consider creating a special account for sharing. After doing this, give the sharing account info to anyone who you would want to join your HomeGroup. Remember to make it a standard account and not an admin account so that you don’t give full control of your computer to someone else.
  • Another option is available from the control panel, under the advanced networking setting. Here, select “use user accounts & passwords to connect to other computers.”

Other tips and tricks

  • If you are having problems with sharing, consider changing your network from “Home” to “Public.” This may help.

  • When you start Windows 10, you will have to choose between Home, Work, or Public networks. If you are using a laptop, you might want to go with Public because you will be using it in coffee shops or other areas and would want to keep it safe. You should not do this when connected to your home network since it will make it hard for you to share files.

  • Mapping network drives will help prevent any networking problems when using applications that need drive letters. You should always use mapped drives instead of network locations. Creating network locations is rather simple, but you will not be able to use it with applications that ask for drive letters instead of network locations.

  • It may be tempting to skip the whole HomeGroup creation step, but you should not. This is critical, especially if you are running multiple Windows 10 PCs. Once a HomeGroup is created, it becomes easy to connect with other machines. Also, there is no limit to the number of systems that can be a part of your HomeGroup.

  • The networking troubleshooter can prove to be useful if you are having trouble. Yes, you could search online but the networking troubleshooter will also give you some answers and suggestions. It is nothing like the earlier versions of Windows. It will find a solution in most cases.

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to create new local user account in Windows Server 2016

clock December 19, 2016 08:55 by author Dan

According to ittutorials website, When you install Windows Server 2016, the administrator account gets created by default, and it’s the account that is supposed to have the highest privilege on the server, but on Windows server 2016 you cannot even open the calculator with the administrator account ( I assume it is for security reasons, calculators are too dangerous you know Smile ) so  you need to create a new local account in order to open all the applications.

I think the reason behind this is that you shouldn’t use the administrator account to open non-administrative applications or download apps from the market, etc.

Anyway, creating a new user account in Windows Server 2016 is not much different than in previous windows serve and its very quick and simple, here is how, just right-click the start menu and then click on Computer Management

Then expand the Local Users & Groups tree and right-click on Users and choose New User:

Fill out the New User form that comes up. remember to check Password never expires at the bottom:

Then click on Create.

If you want to add this account to the Administrators group, then click on on the Groups folder under local Users and Groups and double-click on the Administrators group:

Then click on Add on the screen that popup, type the name of the account you just created,  then hit Apply then OK

sign out from your administrator account:

And login back with the account you just created.. the calculator opens fine now!!

Finish!!!

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Easy Steps to Add Docker containers on Windows Server 2016

clock December 5, 2016 08:47 by author Dan

According to Techgenix website. Docker containers, which were already taking the market by storm, received a big boost in September when the company announced a commercial partnership with Microsoft. The deal, which extends the Docker engine to Windows Server, is expected to double the size of the already fast-growing container market.

Understanding containers

If you’re reading this, chances are you already understand what Docker containers are. If so, feel free to skip ahead to see what this means for you and how to run the containers in Windows. But for Docker newbies, here’s some background information.

Docker launched just three years ago in 2013, but it has already become immensely popular. One of the reasons containers got such widespread support so immediately was because a company is able to put many more applications into a physical server with containers rather than with virtual machines (VMs).

Essentially, this is because VMs use much more system resources, such as RAM and CPU cycles. While a container essentially only needs a compatible operating system and supporting programs, libraries, and resources, a VM needs much more.

Virtual machines must virtually replicate the system hardware to run. But because containers use shared operating systems instead of virtualizing hardware, you can put many more applications on one server using containers.

Not only this, but containers also create an operating system that is consistent among machines and can be used for development, testing, and deployment.

Of course, this isn’t to say that they are better than virtual machines. They are simply for different purposes. When using Docker, every container has to use the same operating system and kernel. Simplified, containers are for you if you need multiple copies of the same application.

There are a few reasons why Docker skyrocketed quickly and has steadily remained one of the top container companies. Docker changed the way containers were deployed, making it safer and easier.

With Docker, it’s possible to create different environments like that of a live server for development purposes and allow those on different computers to work on the same project, without needing to change the settings or spend hours setting up the environment yourself.

Docker notes that “On average, Docker users ship 7X more software after deploying Docker in their environment.” Also, with Docker, it’s easy to “identify issues, isolate the problem container, quickly roll back to make the necessary changes, and then push the updated container into production. Isolation between containers makes these changes less disruptive than in traditional software models.”

Docker containers in Windows Server 2016

Now that you’ve got a good grasp of what Docker containers are (or you already knew), let’s see what that means for Windows users.

Before this, Docker containers were exclusive only to Linux. With this new partnership, though, they will be functional on the upcoming Windows servers. And what could be better than being able to run Docker containers on your Windows computer? Running it for free!

After two years of joint engineering, this commercial partnership entails a few specific things. First, the Commercially Supported Docker Engine, or “CS Docker Engine,” will be available to Windows Server 2016 customers for no additional cost.

Resolving some users’ issues with Docker support, Microsoft will provide Windows Server 2016 customers enterprise support for CS Docker Engine, backed by Docker Inc.

Additionally, Docker and Microsoft will jointly assist in providing more security by promoting Docker Datacenter. This will help “IT Pros to secure the Windows Server software supply chain and manage containerized Windows Server workloads, whether on-prem, in the cloud, or hybrid,” Docker says.

The partnership also includes the integration of Visual Studio Tools for Docker and Docker for Windows. This gives developers complete desktop development environments for building Dockerized Windows apps.

Microsoft has also contributed Windows Server container-base images and apps to Docker Hub to jumpstart app development, according to Docker’s site. And, for IT pros, Docker Datacenter has made it possible to manage Windows Server environments in addition to the Linux environments it already manages.

The Docker platform “represents a single set of tools, APIs and image formats for managing both Linux and Windows apps.” As Docker’s Michael Friis puts it, “As Linux and Windows apps and servers are dockerized, developers and IT-pros can bridge the operating system divide with shared Docker terminology and interfaces for managing and evolving complex microservices deployments both on-prem and in the cloud.”
How to use the new Docker containers on Windows

There are a few things to understand about how to run the containers on Windows. The command “docker run” is available natively on Docker for Windows, and the terminology hasn’t changed much between the operating systems. Also, like different security profiles can be run on Linux, this is also true of Windows.

There are two isolation modes available, according to Docker’s website:

  • “Windows Server Containers use the same shared-kernel process-isolation paradigm known from Linux. Since containers run as normal (but isolated) processes, startup is fast and resource overhead is minimal.”
  • “With Hyper-V isolation, container processes run inside a very minimal hypervisor created during container start. This yields potentially better isolation at the cost of slower startup and some resource overhead.”

So, a Windows container image can be run using either of these isolation modes, as long as the underlying host supports the requested isolation mode. Additionally, both of these hosts are able to be run at the same time, and the Docker control API is the same for both modes.

Generally, developers won’t have to worry about this and can simply use the typical “docker run” command, not needing the extra “docker run –isolation=hyperv microsoft/nanoserver”. Isolation mode is useful for IT pros, though, to decide how to deploy containerized apps in production.

Docker clarifies that “while Hyper-V is the runtime technology powering hyper-v isolation, hyper-v isolated containers are not Hyper-V VMs and cannot be managed with classic Hyper-V tools.”

Windows Server 2016 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Installing SFTP/SSH Server on Windows using OpenSSH

clock November 21, 2016 10:35 by author Dan

According to winscpdotnet website, Recently, Microsoft has released an early version of OpenSSH for Windows. You can use the package to set up an SFTP/SSH server on Windows.

Installing SFTP/SSH Server

  • Download the latest OpenSSH for Windows binaries (package OpenSSH-Win32.zip)
  • Extract the package to a convenient location (we will use C:\openssh in this guide)
  • As the Administrator, install SSHD and ssh-agent services:
  • powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File install-sshd.ps1
  • Generate server keys by running the following commands from the C:\openssh:

    .\ssh-keygen.exe -A

  • Open a port for the SSH server in Windows Firewall:
    • Either run the following PowerShell command (Windows 8 and 2012 or newer only), as the Administrator:
      New-NetFirewallRule -Protocol TCP -LocalPort 22 -Direction Inbound -Action Allow -DisplayName SSH
  •  
    • or go to Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings > Inbound Rules and add a new rule for port 22.
  • To allow a public key authentication, as an Administrator, from C:\openssh, run:

powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File install-sshlsa.ps1
and restart the machine

  • In C:\openssh\sshd_config locate a Subsystem sftp directive and change the path to sftp-server to its Windows location:
  • Subsystem sftp C:\openssh\sftp-server.exe
  • Start the service and/or configure automatic start:
    • Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools and open Services. Locate SSHD service.
    • If you want the server to start automatically when your machine is started: Go to Action > Properties. In the Properties dialog, change Startup type to Automatic and confirm.
    • Start the SSHD service by clicking the Start the service.

These instructions are partially based on the official deployment instructions.

Setting up SSH public key authentication

Follow a generic guide for Setting up SSH public key authentication in *nix OpenSSH server, with following differences:

  • Create the .ssh folder (for the authorized_keys file) in your Windows account profile folder (typically in C:\Users\username\.ssh).
  • Do not change permissions for the .ssh and the authorized_keys.

Connecting to the server

Before the first connection, find out fingerprint of the server’s RSA key by running ssh-keygen.exe -l -f ssh_host_rsa_key -E md5 from the C:\openssh:

C:\openssh>ssh-keygen.exe -l -f ssh_host_rsa_key -E md5
2048 MD5:94:93:fe:cc:c5:7d:d8:2a:33:21:0e:f3:91:11:8a:d9 [email protected] (RSA)


Start WinSCP. Login dialog will appear. On the dialog:

  • Make sure New site node is selected.
  • On New site node, make sure the SFTP protocol is selected.
  • Enter your machine/server IP address (or a hostname) into the Host name box.
  • Enter your Windows account name to the User name box. It might have to be entered in the format [email protected], if running on a domain.
  • For a public key authentication:
    • Press the Advanced button to open Advanced site settings dialog and go to SSH > Authentication page.
    • In Private key file box select your private key file.
    • Submit Advanced site settings dialog with the OK button.
  • For a password authentication:
    • Enter your Windows account password to the Password box.
    • If you Windows account does not have a password, you cannot authenticate with the password authentication (i.e. with an empty password), you need to use the public key authentication.
  • Save your site settings using the Save button.
  • Login using Login button.
  • Verify the host key by comparing fingerprint with the one collected before (see above).

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Hidden Features In Windows RDP Allows Its Widespread Usability And Popularity

clock November 7, 2016 10:58 by author Dan

According to Sanjay Joshi (internet marketer) article, Remote desktop protocol in simple terms is a proprietary tool, which belongs to Microsoft and is also distributed by authorized partners. This protocol allows the user of Microsoft windows server to interact with another computer using the same graphics or operating system. It provides remote display and input capabilities across widespread network connections where the windows based applications are running on a server.

Multiple LAN protocols can be supported by the RDP instruments. Usually all the RDP works on and are based on ITU T.120 family of protocols. This protocol allows for separate virtual channels for carrying device communication and presentation data from the server. Also, these protocols are spread across encrypted servers and data.

The windows RDP is specialist of an extensible base and supports up to 64,000 separate channels for transmission of data. The rdp has the potential to use its own video driver to construct its own information pockets along the network and lets them pass to the client computers. It is because of the RDP that the commands from the mouse and keyboards reach the server which is read through the Microsoft windows graphics device interface.

The simplest formats of the windows RDP applicability are the enabling and disabling the color combinations and the wallpaper, through the TCP connection. It is the wide range of RDP features that has brought so many of enthusiasts to take advantage of remote desktop protocol.

Encryption is the most important and the top of the list feature. Due to the encryption over a secure communications across networks, many administrators are choosing the windows desktop protocol. The data can be reduced by the help of the RDP by data compression, persistent caching of bitmaps and fragments in RAM.

The lower cache provides a substantial lowering of the bandwidth at which the windows system can work. The ability to connect or disconnect from a remote device is a functionality that is possible and is perhaps the most attractive feature of the RDP. This is particularly advantageous when the sudden logging off occurs. Users have the advantage of deleting, copying and pasting text and graphics between applications running on the local or remote computers.

Applications running within a remote desktop can be printed on a printer that is fixed to the client computer. The remote desktop protocol has allowed the client device to develop new and augmented applications and new features can be added. With the help of remote desktop protocol, remote management of different computers is possible.

According to Donald M Clark (web developer) article, When a file gets deleted it goes to the trash, right? If you don't want anyone to restore these files, emptying the recycle bin seems to be the best way to make it unrecoverable. This is not the end of your file yet. Because what actually happens when you empty your trash, is it just removes the index of the file. In Windows Server 2003, Disk Management can not directly change partition size. But you can use other utility to realize it. One is the "disk part.exe" utility built-in Windows server 2003. It can manage disks both Basic and Dynamic, partitions, and volumes. This utility has a command-line interface, so users need to know the correct command.

Registries are Windows's internal database. All sort of information are stored there, from hardware and drivers info to applications' settings. After each removal of any device, like a printer or video card, pieces of information remain there. The biggest problem is when you uninstall a program. Unfortunately, many applications fail to erase all their data on removal. A solution for this is to run "regedit" and manually search for all references to the program and erase them. size is specified in megabytes (MB). If the user does not specify, the system will add all continuously space to extend the partition. For dynamic disk, if no disk number is defined, the volume will extend on the current disk. If the user type "no error", when an error occur, disk part will continue to process commands as if the error did not occur.

By hardware management I mean memory and hard-disk management. As you know, each program uses some of your computer's memory. Memory allocation is determined by how much the program needs and, of course, if the resource is available. When the application stops, the used blocks of memory should be freed. But this is not happening all the time. So, when a new programs requests memory to run, your computer will slow down because it will compete with other applications for the remaining resources.

The same situation appears when you remove files from your computer. They are not really erased. They remain on your hard-disk and affect other files that you want to read or write. It's the same principle as described above regarding memory usage. To avoid problems you should use at least once a month a hard-disk defragmenter, in order to clean remaining pieces of information.

Upgrading your computer - even after implementing all the methods suggested your computer does not speed Vista boot up, you might have to consider replacing some of your hard ware - may be the hard disk, video card etc. Just spending a few minutes to use the above methods can speed up my computer at ultra fast speeds!

The index is like the computer's table of contents. Every file has its own index, so the computer can locate whatever file you wish to show faster. If the index is gone, the computer won't be able to view the file, but the actual file itself resides somewhere in the computer's free space, waiting to be overwritten. The computer's ove.
