prometric_logo_print[1]I’ve recently taken part in the Microsoft Virtualisation exam 3 weeks ago , however my Prometric Exam is still not on my MCP transcript. After contacting Microsoft here is the problem :

We have just received an update from the Escalations team.

“Normally, it takes up to 7 days for customers to receive their exam data, however, due to data feed issues that occurred between Prometric and MS Cert over a 2 week period, there may be as many as 12000 exam records that were not uploaded, resulting in missing exam data for many customers across all regions. The Prometric and MS Cert team is aware of these issues and they are working on getting the data feed issues corrected.

We hope the feed issues will be resolved over the next couple of days.”

As per the update, there is still no specific time yet of the time of completion. Furthermore, we have already raised your concern to our back end engineering team. Rest assured that the team is working to have your concern resolved.

SearchUpon searching a shared mailbox in Outlook 2003 is displays the error

There are too many Find Public Folders dialogs open. You must close them
in order to use the Advance Find. Do you want to close them now?”
YES/NO

When you click Yes to close them , it comes up with an error message

“Outlook cannot perform your search. Outlook can’t display this view. A folder by this name already exists.”

Solution :

Instead of opening the mailbox as a secondary mailbox , open the Mailbox as your primary account in an Outlook profile. You can either log in with the secondary mailbox username , or give another user full access permissions to the mailbox.

You should then be able to click Yes to fix this error now , or do the below

  1. Quit and log off of Outlook.
  2. Click Start, click Run, and in the Open box type:
    outlook /cleanfinders

Revolutionary-Voice-Systems[1]Randomly sometimes the Licensing server “tracking” files seems to have corrupt itself. Location of tracking file below.

C:\ProgramData\Olympus\LicenseManager\WGAccount.xml

You can delete this file ( leave the other XML ) and reboot the server. This will refresh the database and enable you to open the license manager again and the server should start to give out licenses again

We have a terminal server that has mixed modes of Office ( 2003 and 2010 ). We are using Visio 2010 and when you open documents from iManage Worksite the Visio taskbar does not show. When you open Visio documents using Expolorer it shows fine. When uninstalling Office 2003 from the terminal server it starts to work.

The workaround is to right click on the taskbar , and change the Taskbar Buttons drop down to “Never Combine”

documentprofiletypeUpon trying to save to iManage from a Link2DMS plugin via Internet Explorer , the following error message was displayed.

Document Profile is Invalid .Document type not available. Select the document type or Add the document type for the extentsion in the server and try again.

However when saving documents through Outlook, it picked up the document profiles fine showing the main iManage Program was working and the database options where correct.

This issue is because the tick box “Hide Extenstions for Known File Types” is ticked , so it’s not relaying the document extension to the software to relay back to iManage

Unticking this option fixes the issue for Filetypes such as PDF’s and ZIP

onbehalfofUser A and B are secretaries of Manager C and have permissions to send “on Behalf of” their Manager

User A works under User B and User B have access to specfic folders ( not full ) of User A

User A drafts an email and puts it in her Draft Folder

User B checks this email , modifies where required , and sends on Behalf of Manager C from User A’s Drafts

When the email is sent ( with Manager C in from field ) , instead of sending on Behalf of Manager C , it actually comes dierect from User B

When User B composes a new message ( with Manager C in from field ) it works.

For this to work , User B actually needs Full Access Permissions to User A’s mailbox ( not just to specific folders )

Per the trackback , the DVR software on DVRview.com crashes IE8 , however the expert exchange article is marked as resolves their is not answer! The Event Viewer displays the following :

The error code being generated in the system log for the crash is as follows:
Faulting application name: iexplore.exe, version: 8.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc69e
Faulting module name: ilhtrsvc.dll, version: 3.1.0.7, time stamp: 0x4ad36b21
Exception code: 0xc0000005

Report Id: 452c02b3-2188-11df-8737-001d092cea62

First users need to be local administrator to run this software!

The issue was due to streming through an IE Window via RDP , through the console it works!

As per the Citrix Article , install the ADM files , however per the article you need to deploy the reg file’s to specific 32bit/64bit machinescitrixreadandwritesettings

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX133565

Microsoft is slowly moving against login scripts , so the reg file with 100+ Keys needs to be deployed using the registry deployment in group policy. Rather than create these manually , you can convert the reg files to XML using this great tool : http://www.runecasters.com.au/reg2gpp

Once converted , just right click on the xml file and copy , then right click into a collection in the group policy editor and click paste

32bit XML : https://mega.co.nz/#!fFYCXJJS!BFq3Kyos8X6eVag1PvCxnlwigA4RxNV4hi2ANy75dtY

64bit XML : https://mega.co.nz/#!7QRQwRDB!ffUh5UG8vCFPd91qsGgc9QFj5g4hQVNsfPdhL5Ry4gY

untitledWe recently had a problem where Citrix Servers 2008 R2 in a farm would randomly hang when random users logged off. The users would get “Waiting for User Profile Service” when trying to RDP in. When you went onto the console of the server and tried a Ctrl , Alt and Delete it would display the plain windows wallpaper but nothing else ( no username or password prompt ). The only way to get the server back would be to reset the machine. However users logged into the server would be fine until they tried to log off!

When the machine restarted you could see WinLogon.exe event log issues which proved the problem above was related

I wrote the following powershell script to query the servers everyday so we could restart them in the evening until we found the fix

UPDATE*****

The below script used application names instead of manually entering in server names

$PSEmailServer = "email server"
 
Add-PSSnapin Citrix*
 
function QuerySessions($computer, $timeout)
{	
 
#Ping the server to make sure online
If (Test-Connection $computer -quiet) {
 
#Check RDP is Alive
  $job = Start-Job -ScriptBlock {param($computer) query session /server:$computer } -ArgumentList $computer
  Wait-Job $job -Timeout $timeout
  Stop-Job $job 
  $result = Receive-Job $job
  $processresult = query process /server:$computer
  if($result -eq $null -or $processjob -eq "Error enumerating processes" )
{Send-MailMessage -From "emailfrom@domain.com.au" -to "emailto@domain.com.au" -Subject "Citrix Server Hung" -Body $computer}
  Remove-Job $job
 
}
#Else {Write 'Tango Down'}
}
 
$servers = Get-XAServer -BrowserName 'CitrixAppName'| select ServerName
 
foreach ($server in $servers) {
 
QuerySessions -computer $server -timeout "5"
 
}

 

Old Script to manually check specific servers

$PSEmailServer = "emailserver"
 
function QuerySessions($computer, $timeout)
{	
 
#Ping the server to make sure online
If (Test-Connection $computer -quiet) {
 
  $job = Start-Job -ScriptBlock {param($computer) query session /server:$computer } -ArgumentList $computer
  Wait-Job $job -Timeout $timeout
  Stop-Job $job 
  $result = Receive-Job $job
  if($result -eq $null)
{Send-MailMessage -From address@from.com -to address@to.com -Subject "Citrix Server Hung" -Body $computer}
  Remove-Job $job
 
}
#Else {Write 'Tango Down'}
}
 
QuerySessions -computer "citrixserver1" -timeout "5"
QuerySessions -computer "citrixserver2" -timeout "5"

Looking through some Citrix forum posts , users had suggested the following hot fixes

KB2525332 – Do not automatically make redirected folders available offline

Citrix Forum Said none of these fix the issue of Logging off

  • KB2581608
  • KB2561285

Other Policy/Profile related hotfixes I found useful

  • KB2590550
  • KB2065362
  • KB2510636
  • KB2383928 – Logging Off Probs +++ ( Not Applyable Already Applied to SP1 )
  • KB2575077
  • KB2265716 + ( Not Applyable )
  • KB2617858
  • KB2775511
  • KB2661001 +
  • KB2465772 + ( Not Applyable )
  • KB2379016
  • KB2004121
  • CTX133595

Other Reasons

  • User Laptop Going to Sleep?
  • System\%registry quota in use maxing out?
  • Stop NLASVC
  • Run Logon Scripts Syncronosly
  • WMI filtering
  • Check Shortcut’s Group Policys uses Asyncrhonous Logins
  • Mutliple NICS on DC?
  • OFF print driver isolation via group policy on the Citrix servers
  • HP Universal Printer Driver version 5.2.6 was the problem. We updated it to the newest available version (5.3.1)
  • Better: Enable GPSVC debug logging and check the log file with Sysprosoft Policy Reporter for time lags… http://sysprosoft.com/policyreporter.shtml (Policy Reporter allows you to enable debug logging, too ;-))

The Fix

We enabled print driver isolation which seems to make things better but still happened randomly

After disabling the Citrix Print Manager Service the problems stopped straight away , Great! However we needed this for users with local printers mapping to Citrix. After sending Citrix and Microsoft dumps of the crashed servers , they confirmed this and Citrix got me to delete and readded the Citrix Universal Print Driver via http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX125780
