How can I stop Server Manager from loading up at start-up on Windows Server 2012

If you would rather open the server manager manually, then follow these steps to prevent it auto starting:

Go into Server Manager, click on the Manage menu item, then go to Server Manager Properties. Once there, simply tick on Do not start Server Manager automatically at logon. That will prevent it from starting up every time.

How can I clear all the remote desktop session remotely

There are 2 methods to do this:

Method 1:

Open CMD with admin right, then —

A. Type “qwinsta /server:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” into the window, replacing “xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” with the IP address of your server. When you hit “Enter,” a list of active remote-desktop connections will appear. Each session will have an ID number assigned to it.

B. Use the “rwinsta /server:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx id” command, replacing “xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” with the IP address of your server and “id” with the ID number of the session you want to end. When you hit “Enter,” Windows will end the selected session.

Method 2:

A. Go to CMD prompt and run ”quser /server:YOUR_SERVER_NAME”, it will list all the remote connection.

B. Still in CMD prompt, run “logoff rdp-tcp#123 /server:YOUR_SERVER_NAME”(where 123 is the sessionname)

How can I remove hidden network adapters from my Hyper-V / VMware Windows Virtual Machine

When using Windows based virtual machines, especially those deployed from templates, you may occasionally receive the notification “The IP address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX you have entered for this network adapter is already assigned to another adapter”

This issue occurs if a network adapter with the same IP address is in the Windows registry but is hidden in the Device Manager (My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager). This hidden adapter is called a ghosted network adapte

This can easily be removed by opening the command prompt with administrative access and typing the following command:

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
start devmgmt.msc

This will start the Device Manager. It is important to start the Device Manager from the same command prompt, since it will lose the setting to show the non present devices. If you open the Device Manager from the Control panel, the hidden devices will not show.

When the Device Manager loads, from the File menu, expand the View and select the Show Hidden Devices option. This will enable and show any old un-used devices in the window. From here, expand the Network Adapters node and you can right click on the devices which are extra and delete them accordingly.

I have seen this issue on both VMware created machines and Hyper-V

 

Why does my Windows 2008 server keep loosing its gateway IP?

I have come across this issue and it seems most common in virtual machines. The fix I found is:

  1. Logon to the server (using ILO or virtual console)
  2. NIC settings (and write down all settings)
  3. Open a CMD prompt with elevated permissions (“Run as Administrator”)
  4. Run the command:
    netsh int ip reset
  5. Reboot the server
  6. Logon again
  7. Set the correct NIC settings
  8. Reboot the server

Are there any registry keys or files that the account specified for a performance alert requires?

When you create a performance alert, by default it runs as the Network Service account. However, you can specify a different account for its execution. If you specify another account, ensure that the named account has the following rights:

* Read access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPerflib
* Full Access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesSysmonLog and its subkeys
* Read access to the files %windir%system32PERFC*.dat and %windir%system32PERFH*.dat

What’s a rootkit, and how can I check for rootkits installed on my machine?

A rootkit is a term used to describe mechanisms that allow malware such as viruses and spyware to hide their existence from tools that are designed to eradicate them. Rootkits commonly open back doors to systems so that malicious intruders can access the system with administrative credentials or intruders use them on the machine to maintain their access. See here for more information about rootkits.

Why do 10 million people play World Of Warcraft ?

An excellent article on lesessais.com about the issues dealt with people trying to quit this game:

Here. Bear with me. Let me describe an emotional state, and you come up with the cause. First, emptiness. Emptiness like hunger, ravenous hunger; emptiness like the blackness that descends behind closed eyelids at the crepuscule before sleep; emptiness as need; emptiness as blind desire; emptiness visualized as a gaping hole where the heart once held court. Then, regret. Regret for loss, regret that the emptiness exists, regret that the memory of what once filled the hole—the heart, now, the heart, remember—lies dead and dies more each and every passing day; regret that the knowledge of what other people do to fill up their life has been lost along countless missteps and misspent hours trying to find the path on which you once, as a child, so deftly picked your way; regret that something is gone and has left an emptiness as deep as the blackest reaches of outer space. Anger, next. Anger that emptiness is remembered with regret; anger at the witless world that allowed such a gain that could become a loss that could be defined as emptiness with vast regret; anger that you, who once were so strong, so supple, so springboard-ready to bounce back to a mean emotional state, a psychical purpose, can see yourself suffering and maundering over the black heart, its regretful state, and your pointless rage. Despair, finally, that you will ever be another way.

Love, you say? If you did, and I hope you did, then you got it right, at least in purpose and point of origin, for though it smacks of the lovelorn puppy dog ministrations of a mooney-eyed lover, the emotional state I described was of an addict’s absence of soul, of spirit, of the will to experience. Which is to say, they are not all that different.

Unhealthy obsessions, selfish solipsism…the fables and myths that give us succor and teach us morals warn against anything so monomaniacal: it is hardly necessary to think of Narcissus to extend any story’s teleology to death by personal infirmity, moral laxity, or, quite simply, gazing too long at a mirrored self. Love, the quaint excuse for the angst-ridden teen’s outrageous outcries—the union of two souls! Death by dissolution! Not life, no, but bliss!—is seldom more than a mirror made to trick the viewer into seeing a better self. What of other mirrors? Other tricks? What of those that mask the truth but lightly, and in the dancing points of light you can see the fiction, the misdirection, life not lived but carefully avoided, painted in unearthly colors and brighter, happier, than even the most stunted man-child could ever want life to be? We could say that the infirmity is weaker, the morals ignored with more purpose and pain, the waters of immurement approached with more knowledge, dire knowledge, that it is death the soul seeks.

All this is pretty heavy-handed for someone talking of love. Still more for someone speaking of a video game. But there it is. Here. Where love once filled the hours of thousands of men and women who had nothing else to divert their attention away from the painful, plodding progress of life as we know it, we have a game. To be sure, there are other diversions, some do drugs, others take to drink, but for general amusement, for avoiding thinking, there have always been games and activities meant to satisfy other base yearnings—accomplishment, pride, mental facility, physical prowess, social adaptability—but no game quite like this…
