Sometimes when a new user is added to a team he or she needs all, or a selection of the Active Directory groups his colleagues are member of. Unfortunately, this can’t be done with the native Active Directory tools. To overcome this, I made a Powershell script to (selectively) copy Active Directory user group membership from one user to another.
When a (file) cluster resource failover occurred it is not always desirable to do an automatic failback (you probably would investigate the reason for the failover before performing a failback of the resources). Because of this I have created a Powershell script for use with file clusters to monitor file cluster resources, it works pretty much like the Powershell script I made for monitoring Exchange Database failovers (https://netflex.nl/exchange-database-activation-preference ).
The Powershell script monitors the preferred owner of a resource. In the event the Powershell script detects a resource is not running on the preferred owner, the Powershell script will send an email alert to a predefined recipient.
The following script archives files into zip files from a particular directory that are older than x days. Convenient to zip eg IIS logs. Of course, the script may also be used for other purposes.
Sometimes it’s difficult to troubleshoot Group Policies, particular on a terminal server based environment where a lot of GPO warnings and errors can occur. How do you separate those warning and errors to reflect the issue you are working on? If a GPO error raises an event how will you know which event is triggered by that specific error? With this blog I hope to show you an easy way of filtering events to get a clear list of events related to the error you are troubleshooting.
It could happen you should change the Client Access Server for Outlook, for instance if a CAS server is unavailable due to a hardware issue. In this blog I will discuss how to change the RPCClientAccessServer in such case. Continue Reading
