Enabling SSH and running 

esxcli storage nfs list

Listed no NFS Datastores either 

esxcli storage nfs add -H %IP-OF-SAN% -s /NFSNAME -v /NFSNAME 

brought up the Name was already in use. Removing and re-adding brought up an error that the IP of the NFS Share could not be access

Trying to Ping the Storage Server IP from the host did not reply a any pings

Login to the EMC and reboot the primary Storage Processor

A user was complaining because whenever they opened Windows Explorer , the window would hang ( go faded out white! ) 

By Default Windows 10 Explorer opens to Quick Access ( You can change this to My Computer ) 

If I opened Windows Explorer to My Computer it was fine.

I removed all the Quick Access Folders and re-added them , which resolved this issue

Install-Module : The term ‘Install-Module’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file,
or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is corre
ct and try again.

Install Either of these : 

$x86 = ‘https://download.microsoft.com/download/4/1/A/41A369FA-AA36-4EE9-845B-20BCC1691FC5/PackageManagement_x86.msi’
$x64 = ‘https://download.microsoft.com/download/4/1/A/41A369FA-AA36-4EE9-845B-20BCC1691FC5/PackageManagement_x64.msi’

Procedure

UEFI requires USB media to be in FAT32 format, which has a 4GB file size limitation. The install.wim file for Server 2012R2 is about 4.5GB, so needs to be split up as follows:

 

Step 1. Split install.wim image

  • Extract ISO contents, go to the Sources folder and locate the install.wim file
  • Copy the file to a separate folder (e.g. C:\Temp)
  • Open a Powershell window with admin rights and browse to this newly created folder
  • Run the following command:

Dism /Split-Image /ImageFile:install.wim /SWMFile:install.swm /FileSize:4000

This will create two files: install.swm and install2.swm

  • Copy these two files to the Sources folder and delete the install.wim file

 

Step 2. Format USB key

  • Run cmd

> DISKPART

> LIST DISK

> SELECT DISK (pick appropriate disk)

> CLEAN

> CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

> SELECT PARTITION 1

> ACTIVE

> FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK

> ASSIGN

> EXIT

  • Copy all the folders from extracted ISO into the USB stick. Now you should be able to boot and install Windows from it

It seems on some setups Office 2016 limits the search items display to 75

###

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Search]

“SearchResultsCap”=dword:00000000

“DisableServerAssistedSearch”=dword:00000001

###

SearchResultsCap overrides how many items are viewable in your search results. 0 is all.

DisableServerAssistedSearch disables the server-side search engine and uses your local computers search
