Remote Desktop is one of the favourite tool for every IT Pro and lot of times can give solutions for the simple users. But what about Security? Last years hacking , data breaches and infections with virus has increase dangerous. 

Security is challenge for every IT Pro today. This is a reason why today i decide to write this article which hasn't do with any of the topics that ususally write.

So Let's Start.

HYPER-V - How to Access Virtual Disk Properties

As IT Pro very often  create new Virtual Machines for Production Enviroment or for Testing. Create new Virtual Hard Disks for Virtual Machines. In Physical Servers Hard Disks are hardware equipment. But in HYPER-V Host the Virtual Hard disks are files with an extension vhd or vhdx.

Sometimes we need to know specific details for Virtual Hard Disk of a Server. How can find these details ? For Physical Hard Disks already we know all the details when we buy the Disk or we know where can find it after add in the Server.

Another one version of our Tool. The new Version include and Reports for Users. 

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 will see a new Tab Users. Click on it and select one of the 3 options to Export Reports. If you don't select any OU then the Report will be include all the Forest.

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.

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
