Adding Windows 10 Clients to Windows Server Essentials 2016

Q: Adding Windows 10 Clients to Windows Server Essentials 2016

I am trying to add Windows 10 clients to Windows Server essentials 2016. It seem that in order for the server to see the clients I must the clients join the server server Domain. (Currently they are in a workgroup).

It looks like one has to change the Windows10 clients to access the WSE-2016 DNS. So in windows 10 I go to networks, bring up the adaptor setting. Bring up "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IvP4) and instead of "Obtain the DNS address automatically" change it to always get the DNS address on the WSE-2016 (found with ipconfig).
Then within Windows I use ?System?, ?about?, and Join the server DOMAIN. It now works. The client can now see the Server domain.
I can then see the Server files and the server can see the Windows 10 shared files.
There are still problems however.
When I reboot the Windows 10 client. I have a brand new user screen with only some of my original desktop icons showing. Do I have to essentially rebuild up everything on my desktop again!
Question: Is there not a way to have my original desktop appear when I am joined to the Domain.
Second, since there will be times when the server is off I used the router static DNS IP address as the alternative address in the above dialog box of the Windows10 clients. Seems to work since the client can access the internet even with the WSE 2016 off.
Here is my second question. I have a few home laptops as well. If I force the DNS to the server what happens when I travel. Do I have to manually go into the laptop network adaptor settings and change things back to the ?Obtain DNS automatically? each time?
There has got to be a better way. Anybody have any ideas.

Preferred Solution: Adding Windows 10 Clients to Windows Server Essentials 2016

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 have just succeeded in hooking my Windows 10 client to Windows Server Essentials 2016. To do this I had to switch the W10 from a Workgroup to Domain setup.
All works fine except most of the desktop items originally on the client icons disappeared. Worse when I launce things like Outlook, Word etc. I have to initialize it from scratch.
How does one get all the settings, desktop icons etc. to re-appear on this new account that is now chanced from a Workgroup to a Domain setting.
I am an administrator (and only user) on both the W10 and WSE-2016. I see under users my original name on the W10/Workgroup and a new name. The new name does not have many files in it. I assume that?s the problem. But when I copy stuff from the old name folder across the programs are still not initialized correctly.

We have found recently that our Windows 8.1 clients are unable to connect to Server 2012 R2 shares (SMB 3.02). When trying to browse to them in Explorer we get "Windows can't find <UNC path>". Windows 7 clients can still connect to these
shares, only our 8.1 clients are affected. Attempting to access using the IP address instead of the host name makes no difference.
The 8.1 clients can still connect to shares on 2008 R2 servers. Server 2012 R2 to Server 2012 R2 also works.
No changes have been made to the clients or to the group policies which control them that could readily explain this issue.
Any advice on where to start troubleshooting this would be appreciated.

Company just installed a SBS 2011 Server and all new Windows 7 Pro Client PC's. I have an older Windows Accounting sytem that I must support on the new system. It uses Dos based printing to print to local print ports. I thought all I would need to

What Win7 do you have - is it 64-bit or 32-bit?. If it is 64-bit your
application maybe uses some 16-bit utility to print, which only works
on 32-bit Windows. I till now had no issues with net use to networked
printers for DOS type printing. It works without issues on 32-bit and

Hi Everyone,

I am running a Domain from a Windows 2008 R2 Server. At the moment Windows Updates are not working on the Server, or the corresponding clients.

On the Server I see the following error message -



Notice above that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as never, as is the "Updates were installed".

I don't honestly believe that updates have never worked on the Server despite what is shown above.

From one of my Windows 7 client computers I see the following -



Notice in this instance that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as the 23/04/2013, and "Updates were installed", is listed as 10/04/2013.

I tried the "Answer" shown in this link -

Windows Update Error 80072efd

After resetting the Proxy settings on the Server I saw the following -



Furthermore I have tweaked various Group Policy settings related to updates and there has been no improvement.

There is no 3rd party Firewall on either my Server or the Clients, so there is nothing to configure on this front.

Finally when setting up new clients they are able to install updates on my network whilst they are not Domain members. However as soon as the new client becomes a Domain member it gets the infamous Error 80072efd message.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

I tried researching the issue but it seems this is not a popular question. Search results seem to indicate that it's perfectly doable, but reliable confirmation would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Every time I try to enter the account into a new Outlook 2016, the program hangs and then gives me an error message about an IMAP error, saying "Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following:" with an error number and a link to "answers" from Google. Now, I know Outlook and Google very well. The suggestions they give are the ones I have already done:

enabled less secure apps access to the account
double-checked that the password is correct and logged into the account online
enabled IMAP connection in Gmail settings
logged in through the CAPTCHA site suggested, though no CAPTCHA appeared
checked to be sure that two-step verification is NOT turned on
created a brand new profile through the Mail section of Control Panel
entered suggested Gmail server and port settings manually
My method is to create a profile without an email account so that I'll have a pst file to contain contacts and calendar. Then, I add the email account. This is just crazy, I've never seen anything like it. Ideas would be most welcome!

This may be a very stupid question, but can't think of the logical answer. Let's say I have a Win2k print server and both Windows and Unix clients that need to print to the HP printers.

Now would it be possible to have a unix print server as well? Or no, because the two print queues would not know about each other, so what would happen when a windows client prints to printer1 the same time a unix client does?

Or is there a way to set up the unix clients to print through the Windows print server?

We also have a samba server in our network if that changes things?

Thanks!
 

A:Unix and Windows clients printing to a Win2k Print Server?

If you run samba on the clients, you can send to Windows print queues. I don't have any links on hand, but check out http://www.linuxdocs.org for a how-to.

I support a network consisting of a Windows domain running off a Windows 2003 domain controller/file server/print server where most of the clients are running Windows XP (balance are Mac OS X machines). I've been experimenting lately with Windows 7 Professional, but am finding that any time I add a printer in Windows 7 and connect to one of the shared printers hosted on the Server 2003 machine, all other clients are unable to use the printer. The blocking happens gradulally; when the printer is first installed, the XP users will occasionally get an error when printing (complains that drivers aren't installed for the printer), but will usually be able to print. If after setting up that printer I actually print a page from the Win7 machine, that will ultimately block them completely. They'll get the missing drivers error any time they try to print or try to open the Properties window for that printer.

The printers in question are Kyocera Mita 3035 multi-purpose machines; all drivers are installed on the server, and this has worked well with all other client machines. The network is new within the last four years, with Cat.6 cabling and gigabit ethernet (copper) switches in between. The server is a Dell PowerEdge server running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2, with all updates applied.

I'm hoping this is something that someone has seen before. For now I've built a workaround by setting up another shared printer on the server specifically for the Windows 7 mach... Read more

We have 2 x Server 2008 R2 domain controllers and 120+ Windows 7 x64 clients.
We have a print server which runs Server 2008 R2. We have several other servers which also run Server 2008 R2.
An issue occurs intermittently and apparently at random, whereby a client will be unable to resolve the host/computer name of the print server.
When the issue occurs, we have confirmed the following:
- The client has a valid IP address.
- The client?s DNS server addresses are correct.
- The client can ping the IP address of the print server.
- The client can resolve the IP address of the print server by using nslookup and the server?s FQDN.
- The client cannot resolve the IP address of the print server by using nslookup and the host/computer name of the print server.
- The issue can occur regardless of which domain controller the client used to log on.
- When the output of ?ipconfig /displaydns? is printed to a text file, many of the other servers in our domain are present in the DNS cache but the print server is not.
- After the ?ipconfig /flushdns? command is executed, the client can resolve the host/computer name of the print server immediately.
If anyone has any thoughts on the cause of this issue and how to resolve it, I would be very grateful.

Hi All

There's something I've been thinking about recently that I would like to ask the forum for your opinions.

I run a lab at home with about 30 Windows Server 2016 servers. They all have Windows Defender installed and I have a Group Policy which enables/configures certain features like Cloud Based Protection. I never ever browse the internet from any of these servers (I use my desktop with my SUA account for internet activity) and I don't share my servers with anyone else.

What I was wondering is:

To free up memory on my cluster and to reduce disk IO I was thinking of uninstalling Windows Defender on Windows Server 2016 using Powershell as follows:

Remove-WindowsFeature Windows-Defender, Windows-Defender-GUI

Now obviously this would mean I would have no AV/malware on these test servers but since I don't browse the internet from any of these machines the risk should be minimal (note I said minimal as I do accept having no AV has its risks/downside which I accept).

I may keep Defender installed on some servers that have ports open from the internet like my mail gateway (anti spam etc) but besides this I can't think of any other reason to keep Defender installed. All servers are behind a pfsense firewall in different VLANs and have tight firewall rules controlling traffic between them.

I don't have any kind of third party AV/anti malware installed. Everything I download gets checked on my desktop before copying to any of my test servers.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

does Windows Server 2012 R2 Essential require a DHCP and DNS server or can the SonicWall handle that?

Hi there, I am looking for Network drivers for the ThinkCentre M720s for use in Windows Server 2016. The reason for this is to allow a group of users to RDP into the PC in order to use an application. I have another PC of the same Modle type which shows Intel 219-V Network hardware installed, but cannot find the drivers needed for this. Any pointers most welcome!

Historically I've used the following syntax with NetMon to determine which switch/switchport each of my server interfaces are connected to: 

nmcap.exe /network "<interfacename>" /DisableLocalOnly /capture SNAP.EtherType == 0x2000 /StopWhen /TimeAfter 2 min /file "<filename>.cap"

With MMA, I can just do a filter for LLDP, and get the same information, at least on my Windows 10 laptop that is.  When I run a capture either locally on a Windows 2016 server, or remotely against
a Windows 2016 server there are no LLDP packets captured.

Am I doing something wrong?

Just bought new Spectre x360 convertible computer with Windows 2016. Left computer idle for a few minutes (15) and returned to screen saver.  Clicked on the enter button to get to password screen and entered password.  After entering it, the wheel of death started and kept spinning.  When I tried to turn the computer off, I may have accidentally hit stand by mode.  Then the screen started flashing.  I quickly unplugged everything.  It did come back on and I didn't lose anything.   What should I do so that this doesn't happen again?

I've recently installed KB4467864 on my 2016 Datacenter SQL server and now when I try to login it just goes black. No GUI no errors. I've rebooted, I've tried safe mode, I've cold powered down and booted up and nothing fixes this. This is my 2nd server 2016
SQL server VM I've installed it on and both have the same issues. I have a Server 2016 datacenter SQL box that I hadn't installed this on yet and it works just fine. Last update it has is KB4467691. 

Anyone else seeing this? Or what else can I do to fix it? I've even tried stopping SQL server and agent to see if that would do it, but no difference. Please help I do not want to rebuild this SQL box. Thankfully its not quite in production yet but this
will put us behind if I have to redo the OS. 

Thank you!
