When creating a list from a pre-existing spreadsheet I have encountered the following issue:
After formatting the original sheet as a table, and ensuring the column selection and type is correct I am unable to move beyond the final naming step. Regardless of the name/value placed in the Title line (I've tried several different ones). I receive the
error notification "Title: You must specify a value for this required field".
How can I avoid this issue and complete the set up the list?
When you start your computer with an external USB drive connected, both parts of the drive are accessible.

I want to get email notifications of security bulletins, updates, patches, etc.


When you click to sign up, you have to log in. You are UNABLE to use a work (O365 account I assume) account. How silly is this? This is for work purposes, and I want to use my work email address. Of course, if I create a Microsoft account that I'll never
use, I can sign up and get notifications going to essentially a black hole, but there has to be a way to do this, or an alternative

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I need help on my migration project.
I have a physical server running Win2008r2 that hosts multiple roles (EndUser Filer role, Legacy StandAlone Entreprise PKI and so on..)
This server is a single domain member (by chance not a Domain Controler), in a legacy Forest/Domain
We want to split the roles hosted by the machine without changing the filer name (to much impact for VIP end-users)
So I need to transfert Certification Authority on a new Win2012r2 server with another name.
I found this articles to prepare / migrate and verify migration :

1) Active Directory Certificate Services Migration Guide :

2) AD CS Migration: Preparing to Migrate

3) AD CS Migration: Migrating the Certification Authority

4) AD CS Migration: Verifying the Migration

This last post below doesn't satisfy my needs because I don't want to create a tier party hierarchy.

I don't need an intermediate CA authority.
The PKI hosted, is a legacy PKI, I must keep for old DC's certificate or Radius servers...

Hello everyibe,
We have a hydride infrastructure, with E2016 onpremise and O365 (Exchange, teams...). On both sites we have the same users and separate created mailboxes.
We are migrating mailboxes from Ex2016 to O365 in phases to remove E2016.
Users on both sites have the same mailbox name. Example: E2016 [email protected] and O365 mailbox [email protected]
When we migrate a user's mailbox to O365 and from ExchangeOnline we send an email to a non-migrated user, the email reaches the existing mailbox in O365, not the onpremise mailbox.
An alias has been created for non-migrated users in O365, marking themselves as main and we have tried to delete the default email address given by the username. But even if the latter is deleted, the deleted email address always appears, so the email always
reaches O365 and not E2016.

Is there any way that when a user with a migrated O365 mailbox sends an email to a user with a mailbox in E2016 onpremise, the email does not go to the O365 mailbox and to the onpremise mailbox?
What would be the solution to keep the default username (for teams solutions, etc) and to be able to modify the email in O365?
Thank you
Hi all,

I am working on creatign a standalone CA and a subordinate - both servers are Windows Core. I have *.req file generated from the subordinate, copied over to the standalone CA and now and wanted to get the certificate for subordinate.

When running:

certreq -Submit file.req
I only get the *.rsp file. 
However - when running:
certreq -Submit file.req file.cer file.p7b file.ful
I got the *.rsp AND the *.ful file only, not *.cer, no *.pb7 - nuffin.
Question is - what am I doing wrong here?

I have Outlook 365 on my desktop for emails , calendars and contacts
I use Icloud for Windows to sync my Calendar and Contacts from iphone to desktop or from desktop to iphone.
Was seamless until a few days ago when trying to edit a contact on Outlook it would not allow me to save it
Error message was "Your changes cannot be saved because you don't have permission to modify some or all of the items in this folder. Do you want to save a copy of the item in the default
folder for the item?
I can edit the contact on iphone and it updates though to Outlook on desktop.
Calendar appointments (new and amended/edited) are seamlessly working both ways.
A new contact inputted onto Outlook icloud contact will save but if you then try to add a new number or note then get the above error message.
Please advise

I first ran into this issue while a Buffalo Wild Wings and trying to connect to their wireless when the error 406 popped up and I could not get to the internet.  Not even through Google.
I later tried to connect to my work website which I know redirectes me to an https but just sits there.  When I type in the https, it works just fine.
I've ran combofix. Malware, aVG and did not find a thing.
Any suggestion on what could be the issue?

As far as i'm aware all drivers are up to date.

 Hi experts,
    I have a following problem - I am using the Site to Zone Assignment List GPO to assign the local site to trusted sites in order to enable automatic logon. Now when I open the URL in IE11 it works just fine - when I click on Sign In on
the portal it reloads and the user is signed in. When I verify the zone via File -> Properties menu I see, that the site is assigned to the "Trusted Sites" zone. doing the same on the same computer with the same user on Microsoft Edge doesn't
work - it asks for credentials. Now:
 - What is the potential reason for this? I also configured the "Do not sync browser settings" GPO to Disabled and I see it is applied properly
 - Where can I verify in Edge which zone has been assigned to the particular URL (that's a must for troubleshooting this problem)
Thank you in advance for any hints

For a particular usecase, I need to swallow the event resulting from the 'x' (clear icon) rendered for input = text fields;
The click on clear icon should not clear the field and the event should be swallowed.
In my code, event anywhere on the page is swallowed except the 'x' icon click which causes the field to be emptied.

Please indicate how to identify and swallow the event.

We are appending an iframe via JS(angular) in a html page to display some contents but the contents in the iframe is not 
showing in the browser meanwhile it is perfectly working on other browsers. We have tried several solutions availalbe in the forums but none of them working. We suspect that this iframe appended is dynamically to the browser using js, because of that are
we need a special tech solution to fix this.

Please share your thoughts.
When opened notepad or Internet explorer and i tried to zoom-in and zoom-out it is zooming-in but as per my requirement i need to disable this feature. I have tried the following things but didn't work:

Now navigate to: Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Edge

On the right hand pane double click on Allow

Set the policy to Disabled.

Restart the PC

3. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet

4. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom] "ZoomDisabled"=dword:00000001

Is there anyone has an idea how to disable this feature in windows 10?

Firstly, my home page is set up to open in Duckduckgo but it opens in Bing nevertheless. Microsoft Edge sets automatically its default search engine to Microsoft edge and does not allow to reset it to DUckduckgo. Secondly, even if I use Duckduckgo, Microsoft
Edge tracks my loggings. I keep deleting the logging but is there a way to remedy it? Is there enough users to file class action suit for violating users rights ( select engine and privacy issues). Some engines allow to clear all search history upon closing
the browser. Microsoft Edge does not provide this option. Although, Microsoft implies we are using Ducduckgo, they blatantly track us. Where the data go? To NSA?
