I’m always online on skype

I was always online on Skype. I tried to log out from all my devices (Windows 8.1 and iOS devices), change password, disable linked accounts ect. Nothing help.

But when I used the chat command /remotelogout I went offline.

Just open a chat window. Type: /remotelogout and press enter.

A user couldn’t send email using Outlook 2010. Emails was queued in the outbox. User got the following error: “sending reported error 0x80040115”

It worked if the Exchange account hade cached mode disabled.

I had to create a new profile and after that it worked.

Move a Hyper-V VM to XEN Server 6.2

Because XenConvert does not work on version XenServer 6.2, I need to find another way to import virtual machines running in Hyper-V (Windows 2008 R2) to XEN Server 6.2.

Xen Server support recomended this how ever it did not work in my environment:
– Create a NFS share on a Windows server.
– Add a new SR in XEN. NFS VHD and using the NFS share on the Windows server.
– Copy the VHD file from Hyper-V into the NFS share.
– Rename the VHD file to <uuid>.vhd. Use uuidgen to get a valid uuid.
– Rescan the storage  and you will see a new untitled virtual disk in the storage panel in XenCenter.
– Create a new VM but do not start it.
– Delete the disk associated to that VM.
– Attach the virtual disk you copied before from Hyper-V.
– Boot the VM and install XenTools.

This did not work, I didn’t see any new untitled virtual disks after rescaning the storage.

My solution:
Start XenCenter. File/Import.

Import source. Brows to the VHD file you want to import.
VM Definition. Add a name to the VM. In this example: SRV001. Add CPU’s and memory for this VM.

Location. Choose if you want the VM to have a home server.

Storage. Choose where you want to place the virtual disk.

Network. Choose network configuration for the VM.

OS Fixup Settings. Enable ‘Use Operating System Fixup’.

Transfer VM Settings. Here you must use the correct Network and IP (must be on the same IP network as the OS Fixup ISO SR.

If your Hyper-V VM consists of more then one VHD file you need to do this task for each VHD file. When import is done detach the disks from the other VM’s that a created under the imports. Attach those disks to the first created VM containing the VHD file for Windows C: drive for example. When this is done you can delete the VM’s from the import (they have now no assigned disks).

Start the VM. Install XenServer Tools. Remember that the Hyper-V integration is in embedded in Windows 2008 R2 and above and can not there for not be uninstalled from the VM.

Deploy printer via GPO. 0x80070005 Access is denied

When trying to add a printer via GPO I got a warning in the application log on the remote desktop server.

The user ‘Printer1’ preference item in the ‘Printers {GUID}’ Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code ‘0x80070005 Access is denied.’ This error was suppressed.

Activate “Run in logged-on user’s security context (user policy option)” under common tab on the printer properties in the GPO.

Slow response DFS namespace

KB244380 says:
“The DFSDnsConfig registry key must be added to each server that will participate in the DFS namespace for all computers to understand fully qualified names.”

We thought this meant that the registry key has to be set on the DFS namespace servers only, not realising that it was also required on the domain controllers. After we set DfsDnsConfig to 1 on our domain controllers (and restarted the “DFS Namespace” service), the problem vanished.

Accessing the resource ‘\\servername’ has been disallowed

On a remote desktop server I got the message: Accessing the resource ‘\\servername’ has been disallowed when trying to access \\servername from file explorer.

The GPO setting that caused this was:
User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar/Remove Run menu from Start Menu.

When i disabled this setting the users could access servers from file explorer.
