Windows Backup it's a feature of Windows Server that can use it for basic requirements. Windows Backup take a System Image of your Server and you can't Restore individual files but the full Server. 

I decide to write this Article because i would like to share with you how can use Windows Backup and Restore it in different Server when you don't have any other option.

DFS Replication it's a great future to use it in your File Servers and Replicate them in LAN or WAN. Why not  include this technology in your Disaster Recovery Plan ?

Today I will describe how can monitoring Health Status of DFS Replication , files that are replicated or not and what are supported limits of DFS Replication.

 

DFS Replication is a Role of Windows Server that can use it to replicate File Servers across LAN or Internet.

DFS (Distributed File System) Replication use a compression algorithm as remote differential compression (RDC) to replicate only the changes in file block instead of the entire file. If you need more details you can find in Technet https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj127250(v=ws.11).aspx.

Today i would like to publish some useful powershell commands that can use it at daily tasks and get quick your info that need.

Some of these commands already have publish in previous articles but it's better to have it central in one place instead to search articles to find what you want.

The specific Article i will keep it up to date and add commands as often it's possible. 

I want to create a central base that everyone can find quick and easy commands that need the specific time. 

After feedbacks from users for the specific tool i decide to update with new version that include new featires.So I would like to announce the new version of Powershell Tool - Export Reports from Active Directory. This version include the option to select from specific Organization Unit to export Reports. 

It's very easy and you don't need to be expert to use the Tool.

Below i will explain how can use the new feature.

When you will open the Tool you can see the option which say Select Organization Unit.

In medium/large organization with IT Department and not alone IT every IT has specific responsibilities and specific access in different areas.

Since Windows Server 2012 has create a new Group in Active Directory as HYPER-V Administrators sometimes maybe requested different level access in HYPER-V Management Console from different Administrators. 

Today i will explain how can give specific access in HYPER-V Management Console for specific Administrators.

So let's start

 

Today i will continue with the Second and Last Part in HYPER-V Failover Clustering. Use these 2 technologies together to make High Available your Virtual Machines and keep downtime out of the game. In Firs Part i have describe how can enable Failover Clustering , use Validation Wizard and add the nodes that will be act as Clusters.

Today i will describe the following

Altaro VM Backup Review

Are the most important tasks Backup and Restore for every IT?If Backups aren't design with the right way can be catastrophic for the company. Every IT must give more attention to  design Backup Strategy and check it periodically if are healthy.

Today you can find lot of Backup Softwares in the market for small,midsize and enterprise companies. One of the Backup Softwares that choose to test is the Altaro VM Backup. I have hear good reviews from other IT Pro so i decide it to test and find how it's working.

One of the biggest challenge of IT today is to keep production environment healthy without downtimes. In IT world this means Replications, High Availability, Failover Clustering, Load Balancing. Today most of the Servers are Virtual Servers with Hypervisors to keep the Virtual Servers.

Today i will explain how can keep the HYPER-V Hosts without downtimes in any scenario except from Disaster Recovery. The solution is the Failover Clustering . What is Failover Clustering?
