Move ServicePack files directory

Posted by sjgasca 14th on August 2012

If you ever you have found that you have little space available on the drive Operating System of a server, there are some maintenance tasks that can be performed to remove unnecessary files (delete folders that begin with C: \ Windows \ system32 \ $ *, run a cleaning utility like CCleaner, etc. ..).

In this case I will give a small tip to get rid of the space occupied by the c: \ windows \ ServicePackFiles \ which by default is saved in the system unit. This little trick only works if we have an additional partition (D :). Megacrack read »

As expand the disk size of a virtual machine with OS W2008

Posted by jl on April 30 2012th

Hello everyone

In a previous post we discussed how to extend a disk from a virtual machine with the tool expart Dell. In this post we will try to how to do the same but in a virtual machine with w2008 operating system, since this tool does not work on this operating system. In this case no tool is needed and Microsoft has incorporated this possibility and can be done easily from the Disk Manager.

The steps are the following:

1.- We extend disk size on the properties of the virtual machine. Since version vmware 4 can increase the size of virtual hard disk in hot (without turning off the virtual machine) as long as that machine has no snapshot. So we go to the properties of the virtual machine and select the hard disk to which we want to increase space.

Windows Server 8 news

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 13th on March 2012

As many of [Email protected] will know we have the beta of Windows Server 8 so of course, we are going to point out some features of this new operating system.

The highly anticipated first guess for most system administrators and above all is the DHCP Administrators high availability in a DHCP environment.

Yes, finally, there HAS to see everything, but and because for DHCP, it is that I have never been without DHCP, but I have not ever been free DNS and I have five copies, which is also true for performance , peroooo, because we did not have DHCP with HA?, well, I finally have Windows Server 8.

Also finally a certification authority directly as role, we need not have an IIS, we will have a role called AD Certificate Services (AD CS) to offer personalized services for issuing and managing public key infrastructure (PKI). This role will include the following functions (You can see more at:

  • Certification Authority (CA)
  • Web Enrollment
  • Online Response
  • Device Enrollment Service Network
  • Certificate Enrollment Policy Web Service
  • Certificate Enrollment Web Services

Has modified the DCPROMO to make it easier to use (although not complicated, but good) with a new efficient promotion assistant that integrates with Server Manager and integrates with PowerShell of course.

This wizard will help for example by integrating adprep in the process of installing AD DS thus reducing the chances of error. Can even be run remotely via powershell, the wizard will perform a test of our infrastructure for errors so that they can afford before the promotion.

It can deploy domain controllers in the cloud (private or public) (Bufff, we are with the cloud, but that mania called a private cloud CPD), Domain Controller can be deployed through cloning.

We will have assistants to help us create a powershell scripts very easily.

The cloning method is perfect if you want to implement AD DS in several delegations at the same time (It's time that we have a domain controller by delegation, however small it may be).

The cloning process is to create a copy of an existing virtual domain controller, authorizing the source domain controller to be cloned in AD DS, and thereby prepare a configuration file that will contain detailed instructions (name, IP address, DNS, ...) With all this will reduce the number of steps to perform a dcpromo on a remote delegation.

The system is very focused on hybrid cloud environments, although suspuesto you do not need to have a CPD in the cloud to enjoy the features of this product (just missing).

AD DS Windows Server 8 be safer to virtualize (Everyone knows that to virtualize a domain controller can have problems in managing the time server and a virtual system to query your NTP on another domain controller and can have synchronization problems and provide a wrong time causing authentication errors our users) But in this case Microsoft is stepping up on the subject and created a system that is able to integrate with the BIOS of the physical machine from the virtual environment through a specific driver for it. In short, the system generates a unique identifier that is exposed by the hypervisor. This is called GenerationID (perhaps talk about it in the future) ..

Integration with Powershell is spectacular and can even display the script that is running when we make such a new GPO in the domain. This script You can use it to automate the tasks you want a simple way.

DEDUPLICATION. Back in Windows Server 2003 R2 had new deduplication capabilities although I never saw the light in companies (do not know why), even from before 2008 have tools like fdupes for linux with the-d asked you to store and wanted to file copying, but this was a good enough job manually and now it's time to leave behind those heavy backups, those increases in the capacity of our virtual machines each 2 months and enjoy a shared space between the duplicate files. (For those who do not know what you deduplication is explained in broad terms: deduplication is a system that creates pointers to the duplicate files and delete these leaving a single copy of duplicate file) this is the high level explanation, but you can find lots of information online, well at least I hope ...)

Well going to the Windows server deduplication 8 say they've gotten from deduplicate compress files and get results from 2: 1 on file servers and up 20: 1 on virtualized servers.

The system does not consume large CPU resources and is also optimized for it. Even deduplication can be scheduled for the files or even select what type of file we want to dedupe and which not.

I think I understand (And if not, I think it would be a good idea) you can dedupe data on remote servers, meaning that you can make a GEODeduplicación? ie if we have the same files on different servers even in different branches, the system will be smart enough to make a single copy of the file and pointers to other files. With the help of BranchCache could have a considerable speed in the opening of remote files, to see how the story ends, it looks great.

Well, I do not extend more than sure that you are tired of so much text.

For those who still want more I leave the link to more information:

I leave also laboratory Guides Beta testing Windows Server "8" so that you can see in a practical way

Greetings and see you soon.

Migrate user profiles to new domain with User Profile Wizard

Posted by Alex Nalda 12th on December 2011

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to explain something really useful and wonderful, especially for system administrators who have to migrate user profiles from either workgroup or another domain.

Well, let's start:

As businesses grow, the information technology must also change. Surely you need to join multiple domains in a single Active Directory or move a Novell network to a Windows domain or it may be that you need to join a Windows domain certain machines for the first time with the consequence that Windows will create a new profile in the domain and all your data no longer belong to that profile. Until now it was a tedious job because you had to copy all the data from the old profile new domain profile to ... and today time is money ... .but thanks to the tool that I will show, this task will be done in Within minutes, something really wonderful and will save many headaches.

The exact function of this tool is that it is a migration tool that will connect your computer to the domain and share original user profile with all its settings for the new domain profile.

The tool in question is called ForensiT User Profile Wizard and here's the tutorial:

First of all we have to include the team in the new domain (dcho My Computer button. - Properties - Computer Name - Change and enter the domain name).

IMPORTANT: Under no circumstances have to login with the new domain user before using the above tool. Simply log in with the administrator account locally and the new domain but never with the user profile of the new domain.

Immediately afterwards click on the ejectuble ProfWiz.exe and we will welcome screen: Megacrack read »

Error Out of Office Assistant

Posted by jl on November 23 2011rd

Hola a todos

Hay veces que cuando el usuario intentar configurar el asistente para fuera de oficina de Outlook se ha encontrado con el siguiente error, “comando no disponible. Consulte la documentación del programa si desea conocer el uso de esta extensión”

To resolve this issue must go to regedit the computer and see if the following registry key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 11.0 \ Outlook \ Resiliency

If this simply rename

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 11.0 \ Outlook \ Resiliency_old

Cerrar el regedit y volver a iniciar Outlook y ya podremos acceder al asistente para fuera de oficina

This example is for the 2003 version of Outlook, if you have other versions change the registry key, and not be 11, and have to look for the corresponding with your version of Outlook

Until next time

a greeting
