Recently a user was trying to use the Edit functionality of a Sharepoint Online List using Classic View with over 5000+ Items. To which they got when trying to change the view to modify the above error Cannot show the value of the filter

To fix this

  1. Create a new View and set the sort of this view to the users Sort

  2.  

    Filter the view to only get a select amount of items ( not the 5000+ all )

Recently I was trying to SysPrep a machine ready for imaging , however I got the below

The app was : cannot remove 46928bounde.EclipseManager_2.1.0.21_neutral__a5h4egax66k6y becuase user does not have it installed

I removed all the user profiles on this PC which fixed the issue.

I then had this issue on another computer specifically Facebook_Facebook. Clearing the profile did not fix it. I had to run the below commands to reset the AppRepository Database on the mac

Stop-Service -Name "StateRepository" -Force
takeown /F C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Deployment.srd
takeown /F C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Machine.srd
Rename-Item C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Deployment.srd C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Deployment_corrupted.srd -Force
Rename-Item C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Machine.srd C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Machine_corrupted.srd -Force
Start-Service -Name "StateRepository"

Recently had an issue where Group Policies were not applying to a machine.

Gpresult /r showed the group policy 

On checking the machine, the Up Time was over 30 days. The user said she had shutdown the computer. Turns out Windows 10 has a default option called “fast startup” which Sleeps the computer on shutdown!

To disable this Disable the GPO

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Shutdown\Require use of fast startup does set the following registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\HiberbootEnabled=0 (REG_DWORD)

Set the Registry key

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\Powerfix\HiberbootEnabled=0

outlook-security-popup

 

You will need to run the below as Administrator , if the use doesn’t have local admin you will need to change them to one then remove after  ;

  • Right-click on the Outlook shortcut holding the SHIFT key and choose Run as administrator
  • Go to File > Options > Trust Center > Programmatic Access
  • Set the programmatic access to Never warn me about suspicious activity (not recommended)

outlook-programmatic-access

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: If these option are greyed out, it usually means that you didn’t run Outlook with administrative rights.

In monitoring we recently saw a Scheduled Task for a Shadow Copy Job failing with 0x2.

After running the Action manually in CMD I go the below error

C:\Windows\system32>C:\Windows\system32\vssadmin.exe Create Shadow /AutoRetry=15 /For=\\?\Volume{411116ac-84e511-11116-80d4-11111111111}\

vssadmin 1.1 – Volume Shadow Copy Service administrative command-line tool
(C) Copyright 2001-2013 Microsoft Corp.

Error: Either the specified volume was not found or it is not a local volume.

Running this in powershell listed all the Volumes with their current GID

GWMI -namespace root\cimv2 -class win32_volume | FL -property Label,DriveLetter,DeviceID,SystemVolume,Capacity,Freespace

Turns out the job was for a GUID that didn’t exist anymore on that system. After checking the other ShadowCopyVolume Tasks to make sure all the Disks were accounted for , I deleted the errored job

Recently a user needed to Search another user’s 100GB Archive and Mailbox. Outlook search was taking far too long.

You can assign a user Permission to use the Content Search in  Security and Compliance Center  and limit access to a single Mailbox.

Assign Roles : 

In the Security and Compliance Center, Under Permissions,  Create a new Role with the following Roles assigned and add the User who needs to access

Assign Filter

This limits the users search scope to only a single Mailbox

Connect to 365 Security and Compliance Center :

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.compliance.protection.outlook.com/powershell-liveid -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection Import-PSSession $Session -AllowClobber -DisableNameChecking

 

Add Filter

New-ComplianceSecurityFilter -FilterName MailboxFilter -Users pa@domain.com -Filters “Mailbox_DisplayName -like ‘John Smith'” -Action All

Wait around 10 minutes for this to apply then try logging in

Recently I tried to stop a VPG in Zerto after some DR testing, however, the Stop failed and the errors showing where : 

Forcibly delete VPG in Error State : Undo Log Isn’t Empty can’t start new transaction

After lodging a call with Zerto Support, we had to forcibly remove the VPG Via Powershell and Re-Add it back

**Before you do this I recommend you log down all the VM’s in the VPG and the Temp Data Drives

You will need to download and install the Zerto Powershell Tools : Zerto.PS.Commands.Installer for your version

After this is run you need to Open the Zerto Powershell and run 

ForceRemove-ProtectionGroup

Enter the VPG Name without Quotes

Enter the IP of the Zerto Server and username and password ( admin / password ) 

Once removed you can use the Zerto Virtual Replication Diagnostic Tool to import the VPG from the old setting file :

Then navigate to : 

C:\Program Files\Zerto\Zerto Virtual Replication\ExportedSettings

Find the latest backup and try and re-import the VPG

If this fails for whatever reason you will need to use the GUI at the customer side to recreate manually hence Note to backup VM names and Temp Data Drivers
