If you try and run a backup in Veeam and you get the following error

Using regular backup or replication functionality is restricted for Cloud Connect infrastructure servers to avoid impact on your tenants

It means you have used a Veeam Cloud Connect License on a server to backup Local backups instead of Hosting Cloud Connect Backups

Recently after creating a site with Virtual Machines sitting on a Vnet on the application Gateway , I could not add this subnet to be routable from the Virtual Network Gateway

The solution is to use Vnet peering to create a new subnet for the Virtual network gateways and peer this with the Application Gateway subnet 

You then need to enable Remote Gateways per below , so VPN clients can route to the Application Gateway Subnet via a route :

Connect two or more Azure Virtual Networks using one VPN Gateway – Apostolidis Cloud Corner (e-apostolidis.gr)

Recently I was trying to program a new remote for my Steel-Line RD1T system ( a rebranded Boss – BRD1 )

When I set my door to program mode , I wasn’t getting the flashing LED described. Sometimes when powering on the device the LED is faint and needs to be recycled which signals some kind of transistor failure , however an inspection of the circuit board showed no faults.

I tried to email Steel line about the information of circuit diagrams , however was ignored.

I found a Sonoff  RF 3 switch could be purchased for less than 15 $ and take new remotes as well as well as connecting to Wifi so you could use your phone as the remote.

This guy did a great tutorial on the RF2 switch , the RF3 is a bit smaller however the same modification could be used. I use the pinouts on the on and off switch of the garage unit ( as too old to have its own inputs )

Could not log into Citrix , the Controller had the following error

“The Citrix Broker Service is operating in leased connection mode due to database issues and the user does not have a valid lease for this resource.”

Check the database where Citrix is hosted , its probably not running
