Thank you very much! These hints worked perfectly for upgrading my Gen1 Win10 pro VM (which itself was derived via Disk2VHD from an elderly HP-PC HW) to a Gen2 VM ready for an upgrade to Win11. Ok - the upgrade assistant to Win11 complains on my Hyper-V Server processor (Xeon E3-1225 v5 @3.3 GHz) although a parallel native ly installed Win11 VM runs fine - but that's another story.
You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you for the detailed write-up. Microsoft sucks in so many ways and this saved me a ton of time. One of the few articles that details exactly why things went wrong and what to do to fix it. I'd buy you a beer if I could.
I remember Norton Commander--wasn't my cup of tea. We used this little known program call 'The File Commander' that never made it past v1.0. It was a superior program for file transfers though, very much like Midnight Commander is versus raw command line.
Hi, i made some progress, the script can be used from Computer Client like Win10, and he dont need to import Active Directory modules, also dont need to enter config.ini DC information, it will be get automatically
In my case it was all new VMs created on a single host so none of the typical cert/encryption issues apply. I solved my problem by enabling secure boot on the host. I wish Microsoft came up with a clearer error message for such a trivial config issue.
Hi Krishnamoorthi, as I explained above, there is the possibility of packaging the AD module, to launch the script from a client, it will be more secure than doing it on the DC itself, adjust it too to remove the static variables will be interesting, as well as a GUI, if you agree you can tell me how to contact you to optimize it
IMHO having been aboard the Securden wagon since about 02/2021. I would liken this to a real power-tool in the IT workshop. This has surprised me in many ways and the first one was that it "passed" rigorous requirements of our Enterprise Security team. One of the automation tasks it does for us is password rotation, this is saving us literally hundreds of labor hours per year. We use the RDP feature and provide our Securden portal as a "Launch pad" to let our internal customers RDP direct from the portal to a "Clean-room" or "Jump-server" where some production servers are. We do not pass around passwords any longer - Securden does this for us. Impressively locked down. I wish them all the best!
