Active Directory Domain Services could not transfer the remaining data in directory partition DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=[domain],DC=local to
Active Directory Domain Controller \\red.[domain].local.

“The directory service is missing mandatory configuration information, and is unable to determine the ownership of floating single-master operation roles.”

This is becuase a legacy server is still the “fSMORoleOwner” for DomainDnsZones and ForestDnsZones

Download fixfsmo.vbs from below

  1. Upgrade your existing controller to the latest version ( Download from here https://www.ui.com/download/unifi/ ) run through setup and install over the top which will upgrade it
  2. Backup your existing Database
  3. Install New Version of Controller on new server

I’ve seen documentation online about password resets for AD Self Service but nothing for ADAudit Plus

The process is similiar : 

a) Browse “<installation dir.>\bin” location (e.g. C:\Program Files\ManageEngine\ADSelfService Plus\bin).
b) Execute “resetADSSPPassword.bat” file from command prompt to reset admin password.
 
But you need a login which 
 
Username : apap
Password : apap
 
Then run through the prompts it gives you on the screen for the reset
 
1. Login to ADAP CmdUtil using credentials username : adap , password : adap
2. Type “account reset-password -u admin” and press Enter

Install 2019-11 Cumulative Update (either for 1903 or for 1909), this will uninstall the problem KB4517389

The update breaks something on the user profile  , you will need to backup and delete faulty profile from workstation and rebuild

Solution for Auskey Firefox \ Chrome

Auskey installation puts the program for the Extension to user in this location for whoever installed the program

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\AUSkey

This folder and file need copying to the correct user profile and then you need the extension for Chrome and Firefox Installing

Recently during a DR Test we wanted to change the Address on the RDP file that was being downloaded for the Remote Desktop Gateway.

Someone has put together a nicescript that can do it here : 

https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Change-published-FQDN-for-2a029b80

However the file still has the old address in this line : gatewayhostname:s:

You can change this using powershell per below

Import-Module RemoteDesktop

Set-RDSessionCollectionConfiguration -CollectionName “Finance Staff RDP” -CustomRdpProperty “gatewayhostname:s:rdssb.office.domain.com
