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

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

You cannot!

You need to rename the user from one to another ( this moves all the documents for that user ) 

If the Rename process does not work , you will need to run this on the SQL Server to find out any unlocked documents 

SELECT * FROM MHGROUP.DOCMASTER (NOLOCK) WHERE OPERATOR = N’JSMITH’ OR AUTHOR = N’JSMITH’ OR LASTUSER = N’JSMITH’

Recently I had a customer needing to take custom amounts decided by the customer through a Stripe Payment on his wordpress Site, however he needed to take multi currencies

The WordPress Stripe Plugin backend only allows you to set one currency to the below will bring up your site currency

<p style=”text-align: left;”><a href=”https://domain.com/stripe-payment-terminal/”>
</a>[accept_stripe_payment name=”Payment” button_text=”PayNow” billing_address=”1″ ]</p>

To get a new currency to show, add Currency=’New Currency Code’

<p style=”text-align: left;”><a href=”https://domain.com/stripe-payment-terminal/”>
</a>[accept_stripe_payment name=”Payment” button_text=”PayNow” billing_address=”1″ currency=”EUR” ]</p>

If one of your drives have failed in a dell server probably with a E1810 Error , you will need to replace the drive.To skip the error and allow the server to boot and Bypass :

There are offline or missing virtual drives with preserved cache. Please check the cables and ensure that all drives are present.

Press Ctrl R to go to the PERC Bios, clear the cache in the PERC BIOS. To clear the cache, you navigate to the screen that has the tree structure of disk groups and virtual disks. Then navigate by up-arrow until you are on the root of the tree structure, which will be the PERC H710 Mini and not a specific disk group. Press F2 which gets you to a screen that allows you to manage the cache. That will allow you to clear the cache.

Exit by hitting ESC and then control-alt-del to reboot.

Install Skype for Business Online, Windows PowerShell Module:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39366

After installing this I had trouble including the modules via : Import-Module SkypeOnlineConnector with the error

Import-Module : The specified module ‘SkypeOnlineConnector’ was not loaded because no valid

Skype for Business management shell installs in this location : C:\Program Files\Common Files\Skype for Business Online\Modules\

I used the below in Powershell to insert the .psd1 manually into my powershell

 

Import-Module -Name “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Skype for Business Online\Modules\SkypeOnlineConnector” -Verbose

Import-Module -Name “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Skype for Business Online\Modules\LyncOnlineConnector” -Verbose

This will still give the error Get-CsOAuthConfiguration : The term ‘Get-CsOAuthConfiguration’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

Sign into 365 with your creds

$cred = Get-Credential

$session = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $cred -Verbose

Import-PSSession -Session $session

I was then able to run

Set-CsOAuthConfiguration -ClientAdalAuthOverride Allowed

So you have configured your IP Office System with IP’s on your LAN 1 and LAN 2 ports however you want it to access the internet, how do you set the default gateway?

You will need to go to IP Route and set the default route for Traffic

IP Address ( 0.0.0.0 ) ( All Addresses )

IP Mask ( 0.0.0.0. )  ( All Addresses )

Gateway IP Address : IP of your gateway 

Destination: the Lan port that is on the same network as the Gateway

Now how do you test using a ping?

You will need to go to the computer with the Avaya IPO Client and open Avaya System Status

go to the IP Networking section at the bottom and expand it, then click on IP Routes. At the bottom of this page you will see a button labelled Ping. Clicking on it allows you to choose the interface to ping from and then also a box to enter the address to ping.
