• So I’ve done this twice and fully reset and wiped my pc but it is still making me log in with the previous owners account and when i try it says the user can’t be found.

  • there is similar software that downloads the hashes to the local
    I would put a link, but it would get blocked prob “Specops password auditor”
    You can get a 1 year free Lic as well

  • if HA cluster has two ESXi hosts and two VMs running over them by VM Anti-affinity rule, if One host goes down then VM will migrate to second ESXi host in HA cluster, or VM will be shutdown with ESXi host same like as does in Must run rule?

  • In the “Adding data to an append blob > Option 1” section, what is this line used for :
    “$encoding = [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8”

  • If your first item in your table has attributes which have no value, those will not be added to the excel table, even if futures items have that information… meaning the excel table will only have the columns associated to what the first item had values for… any way around this, ie. force include all?

  • Hi, If the link is hidden behind a generic link, then how can get that accurate link?
    example: link resolve by invoke command:
    “https://pmt.physicsandmathstutor.com/wp-content/uploads/../../download/Physics/GCSE/Notes/CIE-IGCSE/1-General-Physics/Summary Notes.pdf”

    and while resolving in Chrome Browser:

  • It makes me wonder, where did they get their list of emails and passwords in the first place. Foreign contractors, Microsoft’s Foreign force, disgruntle employees, or the maybe a federal government? I would not give anyone any clues as to the users in my domain. You might as well be saying: “Hi Conner here is a list of my users. Put them in your database, please. And then sell them to your comrades.”

    It’s foolware at best but let’s just presume they really do mean good, what happens when they are hacked? And they will be.

    Do you know where the site is hosted? What country? Is it on a dedicated colocation server with little security, is it a VM server on a big tech Cloud ready to be copied, or are they simply spammers looking to build an easy spam list? Maybe it’s the MI6 or KGB, the CIA tally whackers, or is it the NWO monkeys. The point is, avoid it like the plague as some @*%$#$^ will eventually hack it one way or the other. Solar winds, and Amazon should be a huge lesson to any IT professional.

    If you want security, get off the public clouds, traditionally known as web hosts, and create a secure private cloud with military grade Authentication using 2FA and smartcards at a minimum. Again avoid all big tech companies as much as possible. Big tech is not, and never was, your friend. Specifically after the federal antitrust shakedown that happened before 9/11. I miss my “paid for” relatively secure Windows 7.

    I am close to finishing a book with Apress on “Building Secure Private Clouds”. Stay tuned.

    Be Smart and Safe,


  • does it will contain the old files and personal things?

  • Yes! Take it away from them , and do not let it be possible for them to find it.

    And, keep a CLOSE watch… on your 13 year old; because it sounds like they have a dark side they don’t want you to know about.
    And hiding the computer may lead them to become pilfersome, and later violent, if they cannot find it.

  • As an additional safety measure I’d recommend not connecting to the service with an which can be tracked back to your institution.

  • You can also download the entire 613 million hashes from the website and check your hashes against the hibp hashes offline

  • Do i need to do anything on the printer, or it will automatically detect the new server IP and settings.

  • This sounds sketchy. Doesn’t this require you to trust HaveIBeenPwned? One may argue that you didn’t give them the entire hash but if they reply with a match that would be a hash try whether it is a valid match or not.

  • Very Nice article, well explained. thanks.
    1 question is the frequency of scheduled task,11:00 p.m. every day. Is it good to have daily or monthly?

  • after following this guide i can’t open the Server manager, the windows internal database cant be opened. any hints

  • Windows server is NOT losing relevance that hyperbole non-sense. While I still find Storage Spaces limited in its implementation especially in cloud environment. The feature is useful in providing cost effective storage for small to medium offices. The cost factor is the driving force. Accelerator products like Riverbed, F5, or Fatpipe are expensive to implement and require dedicated staff to support. If you pair Storage spaces with the proper the backup solution, it is appropriate. Do not rely on the redundancy to save your data though. There is no excuse for not having a robust backup solution.

  • “Are you certain that renaming it in networking will trigger a change of the SSO domain?” I never said that. The utility can be used when you’re running Enhanced Linked Mode (ELM) only.

    To my understanding, It seems, that you only need to change the FQDN as I suggested. You do not run ELM, do you? If you just want to “harmonize” the FQDN name and the SSO domain. (vsphere.local) simply change the FQDN.

  • For clarity though, the hostname doesn’t necessarily correlate to SSO domain though. We have a different VCSA for an unrelated cluster that has a hostname of vcenter.ourlocaldomain.local which is not the same as the SSO domain we gave it, which we left as vsphere.local. So at a glance, it doesn’t look as though the hostname’s domain and the SSO domain are related. Are you certain that renaming it in networking will trigger a change of the SSO domain?

  • It seems that you’re running a single node only. If that’s the case, simply rename the node via VAMI UI > Networking > Hostname > Edit. And change DNS records accordingly.

    However, bear in mind thad:
    – Products which are registered with vCenter Server will first need to be unregistered prior to an FQDN change. Once the FQDN change is complete they can then be reregistered.
    vCenter HA (VCHA) should be destroyed prior to an FQDN change and reconfigured after changes
    – All custom certificates will need to be regenerated
    – Hybrid Linked Mode with Cloud vCenter Server must be recreated
    – vCenter Server that has been renamed will need to be rejoined back to Active Directory
    – Make sure that the new FQDN/Hostname is resolvable to the provided IP address (DNS A records).

    After done, you’ll need to:
    – Products registered with vCenter Server will need to be reregistered
    – All custom certificates will need to be regenerated
    – vCenter HA (VCHA) will need to be reconfigured
    – Hybrid Linked Mode (HLM) with Cloud vCenter Server has to be recreated
    – Active Directory will need to be rejoined
