ProCurve Mananger 4 client won’t start after new patch

After patchning HP PCM + 4 I got the following message: “Core Components of the PCM Client have been updated by the server. You will need to relaunch the PCM Client for these changes to take effect.”

Solved this by login on the server with the local administrator account and launched the PCM client. Got the message again and relaunched the client. After that all users could start the PCM client.

The PCM version after the patch is 04.00.02.457. Unfortunately I didn’t take notice of the patch name ect.

Server OS was Windows 2008 R2.

DNS Manager freezes when trying to delete/remove name server

When you try to remove a name server in the name server tab in DNS Manager you get the question “Do you want to delete the glue record” and then DNS Manager stops responding/freezes. I got this problem on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1.

Solution
Microsoft has a hotfix that solved my problem. Check out this link: DNS Management snap-in console stops responding when you edit the Name Servers tab in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Clear or edit Auto-Complete Cache In Outlook 2010

Users started getting a replay message containing “550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.ExRecipNotFound; not found” when sending internal e-mail to a specific user. After som research I found out that this user first was created in the Active Directory & Exchange and then delete a while ago. Recently the same user has been created. When I understood that I came to think about if the problem was in the clients auto-complete cache in Outlook. You can easily empty the cache in Outlook 2010 (options/mail/send messages/empty auto-complete list). But I wanted to edit the list to remove the specific users e-mail adress.

I found this great application called NK2Edit.

The file that contains the auto-complete cache is:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Stream_Autocomplete*.dat.

Just download and run NK2Edit and it will automatically open C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Stream_Autocomplete*.dat. Edit and save the auto-complete list.

Remember to exit Outlook 2010 before you save Stream_Autocomplete*.dat.

User being logged in to Windows 7 with a temporary profile

User gets a message saying: You are logged in with a temporary profile. You do not have access to your files and create files in this profile will be deleted when you log off. You can solve this by logging in and try your login later.

Before you proceed, make sure you have backed up the users local profile. In my case  the users profile couldn’t be created so there was no local profile.

1. Log on with a admin account. In th registry, go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\
2. Delete the subkey that is named sid.bak
3. Log off and log on with the user account.

I got this message when i tried to install SP3 on a Windows XP SP2 running on a Mac (boot camp): “There is not enough disk space on C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$ to install Service Pack 3”

Solved the problem by adding a new string value named BootDir with the value C:\ under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\. Restarted and installed SP3.
