Q: Has Microsoft included Server 2008 questions in MCTS 70-680 Cert?

Few of my Classmates have written the 70-680 exam recently, and they failed,, they said there were couple of questions from Server 2008.

Preferred Solution: Has Microsoft included Server 2008 questions in MCTS 70-680 Cert?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Anyone planning on taking the MCTS 70-680 exam for Windows 7?
Any advice would be appreciated as I want to get through it asap lol

Yes, I'm gonna take it! Trying to get my employer to pay for cost of exam/voucher!

I just started going through my recently received 70-680 Training Kit. If the lab setup instructions are any indication of the organization of this book, we're all in touble! The instructions merely tell you to see the instructions in Chapters 1 and 6, but no page number etc.

MS wasnt thinking of an instructor/classroom setup here... I need a single page of instructions to hand off to a tech and get it setup! Why didnt they just give you the setups?

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to build a server box for my house. I installed windows server 2008 R2. I've got everything up and running but I'm having an issue with the NLB.

I've never used NLB before, and thus far I can't seem to get both onboard NICs to work properly. I currently can configure one cluster, by telling the NLB manager to look at localhost, then choosing one of the NICs. I set the cluster ip to and the NIC ip to

At this point, I can access my server via that new cluster ip. I can ping it fine as well. Now I try to add another host, I type in the ip address of the second NIC. It connect and I can select that NIC to add. I then set the address of this NIC to

The NLB manager refreshes, shows my my cluster and the two NICs. The first NIC works fine, but the second NIC always is misconfigured.

I just can't figure out how to get both NICs to become configured and balanced. I can see the server and move files with one configure NIC and one misconfigured NIC. Also the server cannot access the internet.

Is NLB designed to do this? Everything I read setups up the NLB for 1 NIC public access and 1 NIC private access. I want both NICs to be able to share over my private network and be able to download.

Can anyone help?

Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 8 Pro 64bit on my HP laptop (i7-3632QM, 8GB RAM).
I have configured Windows Server 2008 64bit VM on hyper-v with External Virtual Switch.

Wondering what should I do if I want to create two other VMs (W7 & XP) which only be able to communicate with the Server VM? By that I mean, for accessing Internet, they should go through windows 2008 server VM. Should I create another Switch (Private or Internal) for those two VMs? How these two VMs (W7 & XP) can be configured so that they will use DNS & DHCP server configured on Windows Server 2008 VM?

Any suggestions and/or tutorial links would be greatly appreciated.

One other point I would like to mention here. After configuring that external virtual switch with Hyper-V, HP Support assistant has failed to connect to Internet though I can access Internet successfully. I will create a different post for that.

Thank you.

I have an ADSL router with 20 computers on a LAN network, I just purchased a server with Windows Server 2008 installed on it.

I have Forefront TMG installed and I want to use it for web caching, bandwidth allocating .. etc.

After excruciating nights, I managed to get it to work through the steps mentioned here:

The problem is, when I have to use a proxy server in the client's browser ( some services start acting up (like Windows live messenger and others) plus I will have to do a lot of modifications on the client.

I was wondering are there some steps I can follow to setup Forefront TMG so that the clients can use the internet through it without the need of a proxy server?
I googled the hell out of it with no result.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: It's an (x64) server so I can't use ISA server.

Ran a full scan on my comp and it says it detected 5 dangerous events. The option to disinfect was grayed out (I use Kapersky Lab) - I only have quarantine as an option and when I picked that, it asked me to choose what file to open. Eh? Does the fact that my antivirus already detected the events mean it's been handled or I need to do something? Because earlier a security certificate window kept popping up, asking me if I want to install it. I didn't, of course, and worked up the courage to delete all the files the antivirus detected as threats.

....That may have been a stupid move, y/y? The window is still popping up but not as frequently. Is it even a related problem?

Hey all,

We've just set up a Cisco 3000 series VPN on our network, and are using an internal server here as the certificate server for the VPN clients.

Just one problem. I'm still fairly new to doing new things on Windows 2000.

So I've been going through Microslop's site trying to figure out exactly how to set up the certificate server here. But I haven't found anything which explains everything, or if I need to install something, (besdies Cisco's VPN client) on the client computers.

I've created a couple keys through Certificate Server, but have no idea how to go about using them, or how to view the keys like in NT, like;
You know, that big encrypted key.
So if anyone knows a quick explanation of this, or where to find a description of what I need to do, I will be forever indebted to you.

Greetings fellow Windows enthusiasts,

I was asked to update our Windows 2008 R2 server from IE 10 to IE11, and it will not install properly.  I have looked up several solutions to this issue, so far nothing has worked.

I disabled McAfee HBSS in safe mode, restarted the PC and tried to run Windows Update managed by a WSUS server.  The update gets approved and pushed out to the 2008 R2 server.  It downloads IE11, tries to install, then fails/errors-out at the last
second.   I have tried this a few times, rebooted and either get error code 9C47 or 9C49.  

Some of the fixes I have tried:

I turned of internet connectivity and the anti-virus, that did not workI tried the Windows Update repair tool, that did not work  I tried the Windows System Readiness tool, that did not work   I tried to scan the system files for errors with sfc /scannow
and that did not work  I tried installing the other updates first, restarting and it still fails I removed the server from WSUS and re-added it and it will not update   I tried the stand-alone IE11 installer, and it fails at the very last step and then gives me an error with a link to troubleshoot IE installations   I have uninstalled IE10, and now am totally stuck with the absolutely horrible experience of IE9 SURT returns no errorsSFC returns no errors

In the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) there is a test for event tracing (#V31026). 
The STIG indicates that if you are running Win 2008 the absence of etwenable = false is not a 'finding' because event tracing is enabled by default (on 2008 servers) and it should be enabled and running.
Is this the same for windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server?
I cannot find the element etwenable in my 2008 R2 Enterprise server test system, it does not exist.
Does that mean the requirement for the STIG is met, and event tracing IS enabled by default on Win 2008 R2 Enterprise Servers?  No further action is required to enable? 

Is there an easy way to verify it actually is enabled?  Check registry value, run script?

Excerpt from the STIG:
Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 STIG
Rule Title:  Event tracing for Windows (ETW) for Common Language Runtime events must be enabled.
STIG ID: APPNET0067  Rule ID: SV-41075r1_rule 
Vuln ID: V-31026
Severity: CAT II Class: Unclass
Beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, ETW Tracing is enabled by default and the "etwEnable" setting is not required in order for Event Tracing to be enabled. 
An etwEnable setting of "true" IS required in earlier versions of Windows as ETW is disabled by default.

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

Hi guys,
What free Antivirus software for servers?
What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea?
My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet..  He uses 2 laptops at the most  to access files on the server.
However at some points he will update Windows Server 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet., and obviously leave himself open to malware etc. for a short time.
The cost of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for 10 workstations upwards, and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down.
I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution.
Also, if he got Malware on it (e.g. Rootkit or Delta) would current Bleeping Computer tools (e.g. Rkill, RogueKiller etc) still work on the server - or does it require another approach? 
I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open.
Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

Hi all
Have been a LONG LONG user of Linux as a server (hosting VM's XP / W7 mix) and file / print sharing.

I used to avoid MS like the plague as far as SERVER environments are concerned - probably because my first experince was Windows NT (Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks) which was SO HORRIBLE that it put me off Windows servers for ages.

(Note I'm using a server in a HOME environment where we have around 8 machines (most of which are actually mine for testing -- not a corporate environment which has other considerations).

The problem now with the latest Linux distros that they are trying to be "A Better Windows than Windows". You can of course customize them but I haven't got the time or patience to do this any more. To select what packages to install / leave out now is a 100% pain and if you do it wrong the chances are the system will give errors.

I've looked at the new SUSE 11.2 -- slick and polished - bit I don't NEED "an alternative Windows".

I've just been looking at Windows Server 2008 R2 (got it from Technet) and I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with it so far. I've installed the STANDARD version - you don't need datacenter or Enterprise version for a home server.

It runs vmware server on it just fine (although I might go the whole hog and use the Hyper-V virtualisation -- need to do a bit more research).

I'm quite happy letting MS do the updates than having to mess around with Kernel compiles etc.

Not sure what opinions you want. All I can say is that you don't need server 2008 R2 to complete your desired tasks. Any basic Windows client OS should work.

EDIT: It should be noted that Windows Server OS's are enterprise standards therefore a lot of home license applications will not install unless it is open source. You will need to purchase enterprise licenses of software for them to be installed on the server. This is particularly important with Anti-Virus solutions.

Not this time. My computer has been hijacked by something that I cannot destroy. It's popping up a faked page called PornTube in IE, Antivirus 2008 in Firefox, and tries to download a setup.exe from mspublik.com. I'm also getting Media Player popping up randomly with various clips queued. This all happens every few minutes, with the usual scripts that when you try and close the window or download, it pops up some other way. Eventually it gets to the point that my system is lagged out and I have to keep killing processes just to try and keep ahead of it.

I was running Spybot S&D and AdAware 6. When TrendMicro's HouseCall didn't work, I broke down and bought and installed Norton 2008. It's found several things and is blocking a lot of incoming problems, but whatever is causing the above effects, it's not helping there.

I am at the end of my rope here. Please help. Thank you for any assistance you can render.

Please help! While surfing on the net a window popped up saying, scan your computer now. I hit the cancel button of course but, it started to scan anyway. I tried to cancel over and over and it kept going. Everytime I tried to stop this thing, it just installed it anyway. Now, I can't get it off my computer. It claims to be an XP Antivirus 2008 program and the only option it gives you is to buy the program. Not too sure if this is a "real" program or not. I tried to remove it from add/remove programs. It takes you to the uninstall part but, it bumps you to the finish part in about 3 seconds without uninstalling it. It says it will uninstall from: C:\Program Files\rhc3ckj0enbe\ I can't find that file anywhere myself. So, I tried to go to a restore point and try that route. All my restore points where gone except for 1. The one right after this program was installed. This program wiped out all my other restore points. Now I feel, I'm in trouble. It changed all the accounts desk top. It's bright blue background with a big yellow warning box saying, your computer is infected, clean your computer of malware and viruses. The warning box links you to thier site to buy the program. I can't get rid of this consent warning box and the pop-up window from the toolbar. I even tried to disable the start-up from boot options with no success. I'm not sure if this will help but, I've attached the hijackthis log to this thread. Please help, I'm... Read more

1. I've defragmented, scanned, and followed all Norton's steps given to resolve problems with Norton 2008. I have noticed that it still takes three to five minutes from the time I turn on my computer, to the time windows has loaded completely and Norton has run its intitial scan telling me everything is OK. Is this normal?

2. I noticed that under "Transaction protection: General settings" Norton said it had blocked a keylogger attempt yesterday, but all it said was Trojan.downloader. I did not conduct any online transactions. I could not figure out how to get more information about what had been blocked. Should I try to find out more, or ignore it?

3. I keep hearing that Norton is not good. I am sticking with it for 2008, though, at least I think so. I still keep feeling that there is something wrong with my computer, though I have not been able to find it. I have followed the steps you suggest to do prior to posting, and I have used both Spybot and Malwarebytes. Is there a particular supplemental freeware utility that is best to use with Norton to detect tricky viruses and keyloggers? I don't think I am expert enough to use hijack this.

A:Three Questions About Norton 2008

I use Norton 2007 which I get through my ISP. Norton is notorious for taking forever to start up and slowing down computers so that's normal. Norton blocked an intruder last Friday but I'm not concerned about it as long as it does block it. But I do use a couple of stand alone spyware scanners. I haven't used Spybot for a while because it isn't as good as it used to be and Malware Bytes is shareware. I like Super Anti Spyware which has caught spyware in the past. I currently use AVG Anti Spyware but am looking for a replacement as they plan to discontinue it as a stand alone app at the end of this year. Also, you might want to try an online virus scanner. That might give you some reassurance.http://www.superantispyware.com/

I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task. 

Both Jobs are using the same criteria, but a... Read more

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

I know this is a Win & forum but I am thinking about setting up a Win Server 2008 R2 server to learn how to administer a server. As you might guess I really know nothing about how to even get started and am not an IT person, just someone that likes to tinker with computers.

Can someone recommend a path ie books, classes, online classes etc to get me started?


A:Server 2008 R2

Ok you might think Im nuts, but look into the "For Dummies" Books I own a few myself and they are great for giving you ideas and hints on setting things up and remembering things with the way they are worded.
Also since 2008r2 is still so new it might be hard to find info on it. I would look into Server 2003 first then you can grab a book on 2008 since 90% of server stuff is just updated from one to another with added items here and there. Also grabbing the older copy will be a bit cheaper on the wallet then you can go from there about spending the extra cash.

Hi all, I've recently promoted a Windows Server 2008 DC to primary and assumed all the AD and DNS rolls to it. It's working well and DNS is working on it. I have also forwarded the service providers dns to it.
The setup is that it's the only server handing out internal dns to 4 separate locations with 3 locations on Comcast and one on Windstream T1.
If the location that the server is at goes offline I loose internet access at the other three locations (and always did even with the original server). Work station's are setup with dynamic ip/dns.
We use Linksys RV042 VPN's and my thought is to setup the second dns on them to be Comcasts and in the one location WindStreams. However when I add the entry on the VPN routers I break internal name resolution of the PC's on the network and users have to use IP addresses of our Terminal servers.
What I'd like to do is have the other locations still have internet access even if the internal DNS server is down. Is there a way to do this? The RV042's have dual wan so maybe I could use the Failover with different dns numbers and have it go to the same modem or any other ideas?

Thanks as always in advance for any ideas,

Is it possible to have these both on disk?
has anyone had any issues?

Which should I install first for that matter?

A:Win 7 and Server 2008 R2

Do you mean the same HDD or the same DVD (aka a backup disk)?

If it is the latter then I don't believe you can, but if it is the former then yes as long as you create a separate partition for etch OS (Partition or Volume - Create New)

Set up a server for my home network, server + laptop + desktop, using Windows Server 2008 R2. I am experimenting with an FTP site, my 1st try at any of this.

Set up the FTP site OK. When entering the site address into a browser address bar, am promted for a User Name and Password for logon.

Does anyone know where, or how, I set up the User Name and Password?

A:Server 2008 R2 and FTP

You set them up as local users on the box. Or, if you are running a domain, you set up their accounts in active directory users and computers.

Technically, you need a CAL (client access license) for each user account that you set up...or you need the Internet connector license if you are going to let the public get to it. Hence the reason that I never use Windows boxes as FTP servers.
