• @LEOS :   “Start by things like AD, DHCP, DNS… ”  yes I mostly have all that now in VM’s, studying it, I am playing with it and improving my knowledge… but I am running a Ryzen 3600x with 32gb ddr4 ram, all the vm’s (20) are on a normal hdd which is too slow my ssd is full so I am buying a 2TB Corsair Mp600 pcie 4.0 M2 (4950 MBps) in the comings weeks to transfer all that into it so I can start to really work… ya ive heard theses courses are expensive and a bit empty

    after that I want to dive a little in Exchange and System Center after Azure and Linux.. study the RHCE since Linux is very popular… the way Azure is priced not many business around here, will run a Office 365/ Intune setup anytime soon but I could be wrong…

    How good you guys are with Linux and Cisco ?


    @PAOLO yeah I know but there is some senior admin on reddit (at least they say) they recommended me to start straight with Azure after I have the basics of Server and forget about all the rest like system center exchange etc because everything is in the cloud now and they think I’ll have legacy knowledge compared to a Azure specialist etc but I think its important to have the broader picture and vast knowledge… Powershell shouldn’t be too hard/long for me to learn since I’ll already programmed in C++/C# a little so max 3 months full time… so my learning path was mostly this, get solid with Server and Linux after learn Cloud etc but what worry me is even if I have all that where will I work with it ? I am a bit afraid of automation and sysadmin becoming obsolete… why pay admin if they can go full cloud and contact MS support ? so I ponder learning Javascript and going for Frontend programming with React/JS sometimes etc



    @PAUL yes, I wonder too sometimes if running a big domain with DC is getting a bit outdated in this cloud world etc… I’ve read market research study and talked with some folks in sysadmin reddit both windows and linux side and they mostly all run a hybrid configure of public and private cloud with some on premise but it’s getting automated a lot with scripts and AWS ansible/puppett config.. the linux admins are telling me its like 70% linux server side and 30% windows for marketshare but I wonder if its still true because Azure is getting very popular so is AWS

    Thank you for the links I’ll read them.

  • @Paul,

    You get the ThisFolderOnly value in a calculated property named “Applies To”.

    It is computed on the flight, and the values are a combination of the PropagationFlags and the InheritanceFlags.

    The complete combination list is here:


    As you can notice, ThisFolderOnly matches to InheritanceFlags set to None and PropagationFlags set to None.

    Now here is how you list permissions that don’t apply to this folder only:

    Get-NTFSAccess c:MyFolder | Where-Object -FilterScript {-not($PSItem.InheritanceFlags -eq 'None' -and $PSItem.PropagationFlags -eq 'None')}
  • @Paul, If you use Storage Reports Management (in the tree above Classification Management in FSRM ) to schedule a report based on the classification property that you have defined it will report on all files, including previously detected ones.

  • @Joseph @Paul @Cavemann:

    You can use an SMB share for your storage pool. We do this.

    As Cavemann said, you have to run DPM in a Hyper-V virtual machine, but there is no requirement for iSCSI or SOFS. You can just put your vhdx on the SMB share and attach it in Hyper-V manager. Job done.

    The SMB share has to be SMB3 for Hyper-V to use it.

    It works brilliantly, and you can even use a dynamically expanding vhdx. This was a huge benefit for us since DPM grossly overestimates the sizes it needs for our recovery point volumes. This does not matter now, since HyperV knows which parts of the volumes inside the vhdx is actually used and only expands the vhdx accordingly.

    Highly recommended…
