Ik was aan het zoeken naar een USB programma of apparaat wat ondersteund wordt door VMWare binnen ESX 3.x en ESXi.
Een bedrijf genaamd Xtravirt heeft een mooi document gemaakt waarin het een en ander wordt uitgelegd over UBS support binnen ESX en ESXi.

Bekijk het document HIER.

Momenteel zijn er de volgende types producten die werken werken met VMware.

Belkin, USB Anywhere & USB Hub http://www.belkin.com/networkusbhub
Digi, AnywhereUSB http://www.digi.com/prducts/usb/anywhereusb.jsp
Fabulatech, USB over Network http://www.fabulatech.com/usb-over-network.html

Windows 2008 Core Read Only Domain Controller Script

1. Enter the productkey:
slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

2. Activate:
slmgr.vbs -ato

3. Show activation:
slmgr.vbs -dli

4. Rename the computer:
Netdom renamecomputer WIN-???????? /newname:W2K8RDC01 /reboot:15
(use the command set to view all the variables used by Microsoft Windows)

5. Show all network interfaces:
Netsh interface ipv4 show interface

6. Set a static IP address:
Netsh interface ipv4 set address name=2 source=static address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(make sure that you’re choosing the right network interface. In this example it’s 2, so name=2 it means interface 2)

7. Set a static DNS server:
Netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=2 address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx index=1

8. Turn Remote Desktop (RDP) on:
Cscript %windir%system32SCRegEdit.wsf /ar 0

9. Enable Remote Desktop (RDP) in the Windows Firewall:
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=”remote desktop” new enable=yes

10. Enable Remote Management (RemoteCMD) in the Windows Firewall:
netsh firewall set service type=remoteadmin mode=enable 

11. Join the domain:
Netdom join W2K8RDC01 /domain:adtest.local /usero:administrator /passwordo:*
(This step is only for joining a member server to the domain. For a Domain Controller go to step 12)

12. Preparing the promotion to a Read Only Domain Controller:
We need to create a unattend.txt that we are going to use by the DCPROMO. So let’s create a new textfile, type notepad

13. Making the unattended.txt:
Copy and past the following test into the new textfile and save this file on the C: drive of the Core Server.

==================================================
[DCInstall]
InstallDNS=Yes
ConfirmGc=Yes
CriticalReplicationOnly=No
DisableCancelForDnsInstall=No
RebootOnCompletion=Yes
ReplicaDomainDNSName=adtest.local
ReplicaOrNewDomain=ReadOnlyReplica
ReplicationSourceDC=win2k8dc01.adtest.local
SafeModeAdminPassword=******************
SiteName=Default-First-Site-Name
UserDomain=adtest.local
UserName=administrator
Password=******************
RebootOnCompletion=Yes
==================================================
14) Run the DCPROMO
dcpromo /unattend:c:unattend.txt

Exchange 2007 event id 9327 & event id 9235

Ik was met een testje bezig aan gezien een klant een probleem had met het Offline Adres boek
Na het opnieuw aanmaken en updaten kreeg ik de volgende melding:

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: OAL Generator
Event ID: 9327
Date:  15/11/2007
Time:  02:16:26 p.m.
User:  N/A
Computer: WARD-EX01
Description:
OALGen skipped some entries in the offline address list ‘Global Address List’.  To see which entries are affected, event logging for the OAL Generator must be set to at least medium.
– Default Offline Address List

Oplossing:
Wat je moet doen is het volgende commando in powershell uitvoeren:
set-eventLogLevel "MSExchangeSAOLA Generator" -level high
Nu laat hij eventuele foutmeldingen van gebruikers die een foute OAB hebben in de eventviewer zien.

Voorbeeldje:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: OAL Generator
Event ID: 9325
Date:  19/11/2007
Time:  04:15:53 p.m.
User:  N/A
Computer: WARD-EX01
Description:
OALGen will skip user entry ‘pannekoek’ in address list ‘Global Address List’ because the SMTP address ” is invalid.
– Default Offline Address List
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
