When few users were trying to connect to a Citrix netscaler internally they were getting an error

socket error 10060

If you use the ICA file to check what server the machine is trying to connect to ( Go in %TEMP% and open up the latest .ica file in Notepad ) 

Turns out the machine had been cloned and was using the same ID as another one ( putting it in Maintenance mode fixed the problem )

Recently we have a Virtual Machine that was stuck on booting on Please Wait

We had to boot the server into Safemode by holding down the f8 key on startup and choosing safemode which got the machine to the login prompt and reboot

Recently had a user who was sending emails with the following displayed in Outlook

I thought this issue and error was displaying when a user emailed back his email , however later I found out this was actually the error that showed when he created a new message using the signature

The issue was the email signature was referencing a server share and the PC was not on the domain

To fix this if you manually copy the images to the local machine you can edit the .htm file in the signature folder then find the HTML which references the incorrect image location and reference the new location where you saved the images to

Download and Run the “Digicert Certificate Utility: and go to Tools , then Check Install

Enter the URL link and make sure the URL is coming back with 2 Certs , the top one should be your cert and there should be a Root Cert underneath

If one one cert if coming back , go into your Netscaler , Go to Configuration , Traffic Management , SSL , Certificates, Server Certificates and Link your SSL Cert there to a root one by right clicking and choosing Link

A manual way

Export the .cer files for the certificate using Internet Explorer ( Run as Administrator to Copy to file otherwise it will be greyed out ) and also the Root CA for that cert

Put these somewhere the Mac can access like a dropbox folder

Install the Certs to the Mac’s keychain

Troubleshooting steps:

2. Reset the administrator@vsphere.local passwords for both the VCs.
3. Performed Modify/install on both the SRM servers.
4. Reconfigured array pairing by typing the pureuser ID and password.

Recently a user of 365 Sharepoint could not open a file via Excel from Internet Explorer Sharepoint Site. The error below came up

Microsoft Excel cannot access the file “…”. There are several possible reasons:

-The file name or path does not exist.

-The file is being used by another program.

-The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook.

The file could be downloaded and opened , just not streamed from Sharepoint

Removing the spaces in the filenames to – fixed this

Updates to an Windows RDS farm with the latest updates to catch ‘Meltdown’ (KB4056890). It looks as if it’s broken the RDS session shadowing functionality.

Searching around and forums are being lit-up with this issue. No official statement from Microsoft at this stage, though responses from people submitting support tickets suggest they are working on a patch.

Recently we had to renew the Root CA Certificate on a domain controller ( SBS ) due to it expiring. We then renewed our Webserver Certificates around this so they would have a longer renewal date.

Some users in the morning on login when trying to open webpages where getting the error

This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certification authority

The certificate should be downloaded every 8 hours to clients on the domains, but you can force this sync using

certutil -pulse
