Preferred Solution: Remotely Clearing logs on workstations

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.)

I need some help. At my company we use Symantec Ghost 10.0 to image our laptop/desktops. Here is my question, does anyone know if ghost has the ability image machines remotely. For example, we are located in Dayton, we would like to be able to reimage a machine in California through the network. If not, does anyone know of any other software that might have this capability.
 

A:Remotely Image Client Workstations

I can't say that we even attempted that when I worked in a single school district. Each school had its own imaging server. I can't imagine pushing an Image over a WAN or VPN link to another machine. In theory it should work though. Shouldn't be any different then pushing down an image to one of your PC on your local network. If you have a WAN or VPN connection to this facility you should be able to do it.

I've googled this problem many times and haven't been able to find anything, I'm hoping someone here has heard of this before. It's happening to multiple PC's on my domain.

PC models vary, usually HP dx 5150, dc5750, or dc5850's. They all run Vista w/ service pack 2. 2-4 GB of RAM. Very standard specs.

The problem comes when the security logs of the PC get filled. Once they fill we are no longer able to connect to the PC remotely. Can't even ping the PC. One of us administrators has to go up to the PC and manually clear it out. The problem is, even after we clear the log, we still can't ping it. We can't do any remote management.

This gets to be a problem when it comes time to push patches onto the PC. it doesn't seem to connect to the domain properly, however users can log in (even ones who haven't logged in before) and from the PC, I can ping any other device on the domain.

Any ideas? I'm really scratching my head on this one.

Hi everyone, I'm hoping that this wonderful community got some help for me.

I've previously done image deployment with Windows 7 and know how to prepare an image for deployment.

I'm now trying to make an image with Windows 8.1 enterprise.

I'm making an image with with PersistAllDeviceInstalls to keep the hardware configuration.
I use the gui to run sysprep oobe with generalize option checked.

After its completed, I make an image of it and deploy to test laptop 2 with the exact same specs.

After its done, and I boot it up and finish all the preparation (like computer name etc), the system boots up to the desktop.

However, here is where I realized I'm most likely doing something wrong.

The event logs are filled with data from pre-sysprep, Symantec Endpoint Protection logs are still there.

Can someone help me out here? Isn't generalize suppose to remove logs and stuff?

It's been almost 2 years since I touched sysprep and all. Hopefully someone here can shed some light about the issue I'm facing.

All help is sincerely appreciated.

If you have a lot of entries in the event logs, depending on your system, it can take a bit to open the logs.  Here is a way to clear all the 4 main event logs quickly.
Open a text editor (e.g. notepad), and copy the following into it.
 

@cls
@echo on
wevtutil.exe cl Application
wevtutil.exe cl Security
wevtutil.exe cl Setup
wevtutil.exe cl System
@echo off
pause
Save it as "clear_logs.bat" (no quotes).  Now, just double click on the file, and all 4 main logs will be cleared.  It will not work on Windows XP.
 
This will work on Windows 8.1 for sure.  It should work on Windows 8, 7, maybe Vista.
Have a great day!

Good day,

I am working a while on this and i am currently bit out of options.

Situation :

We have 26 workstations on 1 vlan with a configuration that has proven already 3 years . This vlan is new.

This vlan is connected with fiber optic cables and well some switches . The problem is that if we put workstations on there the computers start to stall after a while. A while is completely random and never all of them but 2 or 3. What i mean by stalling is sometimes you see the ntloader starting and sometimes during working on the pc it takes 5 minutes to start cmd prompt. But after a while ( 10 minutes later) it works normally again for a while and starts over again.
I looked at the eventviewer there are no noticable problems that i see dns /firewall works correct. Also proc mon and proc explorer and bootvis dont show anything weird. If i place a workstation from another vlan in this segment it slows down also after a day , en when i put a machine from the new vlan somewhere else it works.

The computer doesnt just slow down internet speed it stalls it looks everything with i/o hdd goes slower. And when i restart the machine it can go away or not. Normally we can have 68/mbit speed to download something but then it goes down under 1 mb.

ANyone has a idea i am using wireshark now for inbound traffic.

Hello,I am actually looking on changing the standard workstation we use for our business and was looking exactly to this one (HP 280 G2 MT).My questions are, when will the product go end of life? What is his predecessor ? (I need the model to compare the hardware changes so i know in case of upgrade what will change, i know it won't be the same when it will change for a new model but i want just to have an idea)Kind Regards, Mario.

A:End of Life on workstations

Mario, The Predecessor is the HP 280 G1.  The highest rated HP 280 G1 on Passmark (14 tested): Passmark Rating = 2214  CPU= 4931 (i3-4160 / 2D= 791  (Intel HD 4400) / 3D= 514 / Mem= 1518 (4GB) / Disk= 3403 (SanDisk SDSSDHII120G)  Theh best CPu is the i5=4590S: 7104.  The highest 3D is the HD 4400 Unfortuately, there is no test of the HP 280 G2 on Passmark for comparison. So as to comment about the HP 280 G2 MT,  it would be useful to know the current systems and more about the use .  In general, the HP 280 G2 appears to be a very modern LGA1151 design and for general business use, capable, compact, and knowing HP, probably very quiet.  The Intel 530 Integrated Graphics is far  better than one might assume.  On Passmark baselines, an i7-6700 / Intel 530 system scored 988 in 2D and 3305 in 3D.  That does use system RAM, so buy a system with at least 16GB. For comparison the $450 Quadro K2000(4GB)  in an HP z420 scored 250 in 2D and 3535 in 3D. The 280 GT MT does have a PCIe x16 slot to add a dedicated graphics card and it can use up to 32GB of RAM- that will run 4 or 5 big programs at once with good sized files.   However,  I don't see this as a intensive visualization system as the number of cores and the peripherals will be restricted by the number of PCIe lanes and slots due to the compact format. However, a good GPU could work wonders as the i7-6700 is in the top tier fo... Read more

Hi Folks:

I was wondering if anyone here has had experience on installing the 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 on either of these two HP Workstations: the xw8600 or the z600. I have a chance to obtain either model and while they are both non-UEFI machines, I understand that Windows 8.1 can indeed work on BIOS-only PCs. From what I understand, certain processor/hardware security features will be turned off but Windows will function. Is that correct?

Does anyone have any insight here? Any gotchas I need to watch out for? I love my xw8200, but I am unable to upgrade it to Windows 8.1 x64.

I've been wanting to post this info for some time, and am building up a Z600 so took some pictures. Here's the How-To: In the Z workstations the PCIe slots are at least Generation II, but for the xw workstations in the xw6400 none are, and in the xw6600 only the two PCIe x16 video slots are.  So, in the xw6600 put the USB 3 card in the second (lower) PCIe x16 video slot so you get the bandwidth that at least matches what USB 3 can do.  Same idea for the xw8400 versus the xw8600.  You can run this card in a xw6400 or xw8400 but will only get about 1/2 USB 3 speeds. The +5V DC that USB 2 and 3 lives on does not come up from the PCIe slots..... the card will need a supplemental power source, and this HP card's SATA power connector has tolerances that precludes many SATA power adapters from fitting perfectly.  You can carve on the rubber some, or buy a perfect fitting adapter which I have located, via Mouser.com, made by Molex itself.  The Molex brand part number is 88751-1311.  In a Z600 I put the card in the very top PCIe slot, just above the top video card.  If you buy the whole kit from HP it will have a proper SATA power adapter to use, and that whole kit has Options part number QT587AA, costing about 70.00 with shipping. There are two HP USB 3.0 PCIe cards, only one of which you should buy.  It is the HP "2x2" card (2 ports at rear, potential for 2 ports out front via an on-card USB3 header).  The older original ca...

 We currently have a number of HP Z800 workstations that perform very well for the purpose they were selected to perform.  When we first purchased them, we were impressed by the quietness of these machines but over time, however, we feel the fan noise from these machines has been increasing to the point that it is now intolerable. We have done all the basics: cleaning them thoroughly with vacuum cleaners and blowers, checking the cases are correctly sealed,operating them with most PCI devices removed and checking the fan speeds.  They are loud even at the lowest speed, the BIOS shows them running at 1400 - 1800 rpm when idle.  We did some tests removing individual fans temporarily and found that pretty much 95% of the noise comes from the case fan at the rear (534878-001) and the memory fans (534879-001) We tried replacing these parts with "new" fan kits ordered from a HP authorized distributor.  When the new fan kits arrived, the sound levels didn't change.  We looked closely at the new fans and found they were actually manufactured earlier than the fans we took out of the system (2009!).  The vendor, Delta Electronics, puts a date code on them.  I'm guessing the lubricant quality deteriorates if they spend 8 - 9 years on the shelf. What are the next steps?  Is there any way to get freshly manufactured fans for Z800? Are any of the newer Z series workstations significantly more quiet?  Will a modern Z440 b...

Presently those files are on one of the computers, and we are using a Wireless router to form the LAN. We want to avoid having the central files on one of the computers if possible.

Hi,I take it this is a business computer?If so, I strongly recommend you to ask your IT suppport/network Administrator to fix this. After all they are paid to do so.I ask this for several reasons: There may be restrictions and modifications installed on such machines that could be damaged or altered by the actions we take to remove Malware. Any infection could jump terminals in a computer network. There may also be legal issues regarding any loss of business data that I do not wish to deal with. Some people who come here use their computers for work, and the computers may contain the patient records of a physician or the financial records of an accountant's clients or credit card and bank account information of their employer's customers. There may be tremendous risks and legal liability for such users for not fully securing the computer. We will not know this unless we ask. We do not want to be accidentally putting those we help in vulnerable positions for law suits. Business factors outweigh technical factors in making the reformat and reinstall decision. Sometimes friends give missing CDs or lack of expertise as a reason for not doing a reformat and reinstall. The cost of replacing missing Windows XP and MS Office CDs and getting an Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer to come in for 3 hours to do the reinstall and apply all the critical updates, is trivial compared with the potential cost of a multi-million dollar lawsuit for breach of trust if confident...

It will launch, show the progress bar but the blue screen never pops up. Th first time I launched combofix on one pc it said the exe had been tampered. I've downloaded new copies and verified it will run on another pc, I've also tried the /killall but no luck. I ran security task manager and found and quarantined vbahewow.dll in system32, regabwiz.dll in system32, pv.exe in c:32788r22fwjfw, and modumtmp.exe in system32. Not sure where to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have 2 IBM Intellistation workstations that are cross-over cable connected. Running XP Pro. I am admin on both machines.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why I cannot access either machine from each. I have run the network setup wizard at least a dozen times, checked the protocols, etc.

I have Norton Firewall disabled on both machines since they are dial-up only. I enable before dialing the outside world.

I can see both machines under the same workgroup name, but when I select the 2nd machine, I get a popup login window, with the USERNAME set to guest (which is greyed out) and a blinking password option. If I go to the other machine and attempt the same process, the same result occurs. GUEST login is already disabled under User Profiles so I assume that is why the userid (as guest) is already greyed.

There are only three login options, Admin, Myself (with admin priv) and my co-worker (power user).

Where do I go to check network access settings? I need to share both computers in order to transfer data back and forth.
Thanks. I hope this makes sense.

Hello, I have a problem with a couple Z230 Tower Workstations (no other model that we have has this issue). The issue is that after certain updates are installed and the computer starts to reboot, the computer does not completely shut down. The power light remains on, solid, with nothing displayed on the monitor. The monitor light changes from green to amber as is to be expected when the computer is commanded to shut down. The computer just doesn't finish shutting down, it doesn't click the power off. All I am able to do at that point is hold in the power button for 5 seconds, let go, and the power to the workstation is off. Then I press the power button again to turn it back on. When I do this, Windows doesn't ask if I would like to start Windows normally or anything, it boots up normally as if nothing went wrong. Before someone asks which updates cause this issue, it is not the updates that are the problem. This is because all (or most) other Z230 workstations on our network install he same updates. Also, this problem happens just about every Microsoft patch Tuesday, as well as any other program updates (not just Microsoft). For example, BIOS and driver updates sometimes cause this to happen. Also, when it starts to reboot, normal events in the event log appear (all the services enter the stop state). No related errors appear. The workstations have the latest driver and BIOS updates. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. Let me kno... Read more

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I don't know why this Thread is marked as Solved, but I will still give it a shot anyway.

When trying to connect to your SBS 2003's network drive, have you tried accessing the server thru it's IP Address and Server Name? For example: \\10.10.0.15\shareddrive or \\ServerName\shareddrive.

Hi, I'm still new to this so please try to bear w/ me.

I recently stood up a small domain consisting of only 2 servers. One server is the active directory and the second server is the file/print server. So far so good, I pretty much took all the default values when finishing up the installation. Nothing fancy here.

This small domain is connected to a larger domain. All the DNS and WINS info from the small domain is pointed to the larger domain. All workstations are joined to the larger domain via DHCP (WinXP Pro).

My problem is I have two workstations that cant see my small domain anymore. They use to see it no problem. As far as I know nothing has changed. The network settings for these workstations are identical to the rest of the workstations yet they can't see my smaller domain. I've tried using LMHOST, HOST, purging the DNS, praying to god, throwing salt over my left shoulder, EVERYTHING yet nothing works.

Please, anybody, I'm in dire straits here. I have no idea whats wrong. Here is what I do know:

Workstations can't see small domin via Network Neighborhood
Workstations can ping and NSLOOKUP both servers on small domain
Workstations are on DHCP WinXP Pro
Small servers are on static IP
Workstations can only map to small servers via IP only

So the problem I have is that almost all the workstations on our network are connected and working on the network.

The problem comes that when trying to ping other machines on the network it pops up as 'request timed out' even though I know they are on the network and authenticated. I have checked the firewall settings and ICMP echo request are allowed.

Also when trying to map to one of these machines it comes up as if it was not on the network.

I am at a lose and connot find anything useful on google, does anyone have any thoughts?

We have 10 NT 4 workstations attached to a domain. Suddenly we can only logon to 2 of them. When we have a look in network neighborhood on the NT 4 server the 8 we can't logon to don't show up anymore. They are all turned on. When I have a look in server manager these 8 are there but their monitor-like icons are grey, not blue like they should be. When I try to access the properties of any one of these 8, the server takes quite a few minutes then comes back with the error "path not found".
Any help would be appreciated.

A:{Solved} - Lost NT 4.0 workstations?

Greetings

OK, first make sure that the PCs are able to see the network. From the workstations, can you ping the server's IP address?

If not, then you have to fix either the network settings, the cable or which ever router might be broken.

If you can, ping the Server's name. If that is unsuccessful, you need to fix the PC's name resolution (probably by changing the WINS entry, if the WINS server has a new IP address).

If you can ping the server's name, then it might be that the PC's Computer Account on the domain is corrupted. You can replace them in two ways:
1) In server manager, you can delete the entry and recreate it
2) On the workstation, you can go into network properties and move the PC out of the domain and into a network, and then straight away (ie no reboot needed), add the PC back into the domain (using a domain admin's username and password).

I have an NT 4.0 server/95&98 workstation ethernet network. I want to have the forced (system policy)logon banner go to screen saver after a few minutes. Additionally, I have locked down user functionality with policies to restrict access to display, find, hard drive, etc. Also using .man instead of .dat for user profiles. Screen saver works after user logs on; I want it to function before the user logs on (logon banner). How can I do this?
 

A:Screen Saver for workstations

Greetings

Well, I am not too sure if you can do it with a Computer Policy, but you can run a logon script to edit the registry to edit the following key:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
"ScreenSaveTimeOut"="900"
"ScreenSaveActive"="1"
"SCRNSAVE.EXE"="logon.scr"
"ScreenSaverIsSecure"="0"
The problem lies, is that it is likely that your users will not have access to their registries. So, you might need to send this update to them via your method for remote installation of Program updates (SMS, etc).

Cheers

having problems with a new network installation, new 2003 DC but existing workstations.

They had xp home, so they had a fellow come in before me to upgrade to pro. Anyhow, new server is in place and i'm holding the bag. This server is one of hundreds installed and everything is working great on the server.

Yes, dns is functional, nslookup returns the server name yadda, yadda, yaddah.

The problem is this mrxsmb message (warning). Everytime I touch a mapped drive to the server from an xp workstation it's throwing this message and actually losing (instantaneous) connections to the server. I have never run across this problem before.

I've changed computer names, reset tcp, reinstalled tcp, updated drivers, upgraded bios etc etc. This is driving me nuts. Windows firewall is disabled, so is computer browser, AU, NLA, SSDP etc, just to see if they are causing problems.

Anyone else come across this?

Thanks.

I have some difficulty when trying to access some computers on the network ( I have administrator privileges).

For example I can connect to the C drive on computer LRC-Q11 by clicking start -----> Run - typing \\LRC-Q11\c$ and pressing OK.

However when tring to access another computer even with a similar name eg LRC-Q012 I receive the message :

"LRC-Q012 is unavailable . You may not have sufficient rights to access this resource. LRC-Q012 path cannot be found"

Identical results are obtained using network neighbourhood.

I cannot understand this.

Suggestions please ?
