result 1722 (0x6ba): The RPC server is unavailable ( DCDIAG )

Posted by paris on Jul 22, 2017 in Research

We saw a domain controller was not replicating to another one.

dcdiag came up with a 

    • result 1722 (0x6ba): The RPC server is unavailable.

Someone had added an extra IP address to the domain controller on a seperate subnet not being used which caused this. Removing the secondary IP fixed this

Windows 10 Previous Versions to the same drive

Posted by paris on Jul 22, 2017 in Research

It seems Windows 10 has turned off an Awesome Windows 7 feature of restoring Previous versions of files and storing the backup files on the same disk. 

Windows 10 now calls this file history , and you need an external drive to store these. Not good for users who move around. 

There are a few workarounds

1) You can use this hack to replicate it to a share : https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-8-1/1055/ask-paul-configure-file-history-use-single-drive

2) You can Partition your drive into two or create a VHD to store these files to

3) You can use System Restore

i> Turn on System Protection for the Dirve and set the capacity you would like these backups to use

ii> Go to the Scheduled Task in Windows and create a schedule for this task

iii> Use Shadow Explorer to find old files from these backups when needed

$recycle.bin Redirected Folder Cannot Delete / Clear

Posted by paris on Jul 22, 2017 in Research

User’s in an environment had their Recycle Bin redirected , however whenever you tried to delete large items for the users remotely it would not let you and the size of the folder / file would show as 0KB

This is obiously a change in Windows 10 / Server 2012 how it stores these files as in Windows 7 / 2008 R2 you could delete selectged items

The work around is to delete the whole $recycle.bin Redirected Folder and this will get recreated next time the user deletes something.

“ErrorQuerying” 123reg Domain Transfer

Posted by paris on Jul 20, 2017 in Random

If you move a domain to 123reg, the status might go to ErrorQuerying

This is due to the fact the IPS Tag is incorrect or you did not set when you do the transfer. It needs to be set before you start the transfer

The resolution is to re-transfer the domain again through the 123reg.co.uk checkout ( you do not need to remove )
