Recently a newly installed Vocus link was running 100mb Down but only 30mb up , multiple back an forths with support showed the link back to vocus was fine , however the speed was still bad.

Finally they told me the answer , the package ordered was not full 100mb up!

Best Effort Internet Access
VBU is delivered to site using Telstra Wholesale Ethernet Access (Fibre) Standard CoS (Class of Service) access tails. Note Standard CoS is 100% EIR (Excess Information Rate) which means, under congestion in the Telstra network, this traffic may be discarded. If the customer requires an Internet Service with continual sustained throughput or other medium to high performance requirements, please use Vocus IP Transit or Enterprise Internet rather than VBU.

 

Fix

Recommended VCT or VIE onnet service
or alternatively Telstra tail can be made premium.

Recently we changed the IP and Subnet of an exchange 2016 server. Trying to Open ECP Showed the Error :

Topology Provider coundn’t find the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service on end point

This is due to the Server Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology not starting

The service was not starting because of the new Subnet was not listed in Active Directory Sites and Services which meant Exchange was not sited aware

Add the domain and restart the server

Recently we started getting errors for our Vcenter address which was a subdomain of our main domain which had a proper certificate for the website. Chrome picked this up and then uses HSTS to make sure all subdomains have a valid cert ( Without an easy option to Bypass ) 

However to bypass just type either word below when presented with the error

thisisunsafe” or “badidea

Recently had a customer use crazydomains for their Emails. Incoming email stopped with the error below

550 Please turn on SMTP Authentication in your mail client. mail-wm1-f50.google.com [209.85.128.50]:38049 is not permitted to relay through this server without authentication.

I check the MX / NS servers to make sure they were pointing a valid records.

Called support and they asked me to remove off Automatically Detect and change to Local Mail Exchanger , it took 15 minutes to apply and starting working again. Guessing their internal DNS had an issue

You can set the author and default document class by setting the following registry key. The variable %USERID% will resolve to the user that is logged in.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Interwoven\WorkSite\8.0\iManExt\DefaultNewProfile]
“382”=”%USERID%”
“384”=”DOC”

Recently at a site we had machines starting using high CPU of the SVCHost process, this process is used by lots of services to access the network , however, as soon as stopping the Windows Update Service CPU came back down to normal

I had seen this before at another site and the issue was due to not enough CPU ( only one was flatlining the CPU )  , however increasing the CPU and memory still did not fix this

Then after some recent updates, the servers would no Windows Update anymore , they would just sit on “Checking for Windows Updates”. I couldn’t install updates Via powershell 

A server running Windows Server 2012 R2 on the same network updated fine!

I tried the normal fix of Wiping these : 

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate

However to no avail.

 

I checked the Windows Update Log : C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log

2019-04-23 14:09:51:839 5080 ab8 CltUI FATAL: CNetworkCostChangeHandler::RegisterForCostChangeNotifications: CoCreateInstance failed with error 80004002
2019-04-23 14:09:51:839 5080 ab8 CltUI WARNING: RegisterNetworkCostChangeNotification: Error 80004002

 

I then found an article to Remove the Desktop Experience Feature ( which had been installed to Disk Cleanup the servers ) 


After this I did this again and could windows update again

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate
