two factor for rdp

Hi all,

What are my options for two factor authentication for rdp sessions?

I specifically need something that doesn't rely on internet access to authorize a token.

Thank you

Beginning sysadmin (student worker) looking for advice on a print server merge.

Hi guys, I'm a student worker at a University for their Device Management department. I began work for them in March and have since done my best to acquire a skill set despite permissions issues.

That said, I am taking lead on a project that involves standing up a server with fresh, up-to-date printer drivers. Many of the printers are managed by Group Policy while others are not. On a university level, with 300 or so printers on our server, I'm wondering what the best course of action is and any tools that can help me accomplish the task.

My first order of business is compiling a list of all of the printers and their departments. I plan to get in touch with their point of contact and inquire about the activity of the printer and whether it is still in use. Meanwhile, I want to test a merge method on two printers. One of which I plan to just change the C name for the printer in group policy and force a gpupdate to see if it picks up on the new server.

Keep in mind that I am not the only one working on the project, however, I would love to come to the table with more ideas on how to address any issues that may arise. Thanks for any advice!

Need some advice on presenting an issue to my boss

First, this is not my real account, I made this to be anon as my coworker in question knows my real account.

I knew my coworker (also in IT) was playing webgames on his lunch. My helpdesk guy told me that he heard him complaining about our AV, which blocks 317 games and auto adds them to be blocked as new ones are presented. He mentioned that he was unblocking things for himself.

I sifted through the logs and found that he had used his admin creds, small team so we left him with creds incase my boss and I are both out, to unblock 3 games as well as allow multiple game websites. Normally this would not be a problem if I had a policy specifc for IT, however, my philosophy is that if the users live in these rules then so do we.

So now I have multiple game sites and games open to everyone, as well as a few other things. He was told before by our boss when he promoted him that this stops. He also caused an issue out of a non-issue with someone in another department. Instead of just saying "never did that before, ill look into it and have our boss schedule it if I can" he said something like "well I'm not doing it. I don't know how. don't ask me about it". mind you this was during about a 20min back and fourth that I am a 3rd party to hearing.

I set a meeting with our boss to go over this stuff but I really don't know how to present it. I have everything documented, logs and all, in PDF in 4 locations just in case. Just don't know how to present this in a way that doesn't make it sound like I am trying to get rid of him.

his work is subpar, I don't know .net that well but I know what I see and the time it takes does not add up, he argues everything. In azure I added App Insight for our apps and asked him to use them, and I would teach him (which I did offer), so he could understand where his problems are more. I was met with a "yeah not using it".

Id rather deal with printers than projectors

I've seen all the hate directed at printers, and I can understand it, but I think most people have never dealt with projectors. I work in an edutainment venue with projectors that run 363 days a year, and I hate projectors far more than printers.

  • Paper jams don't spew broken glass everywhere.
  • You don't have to wait half an hour for a printer to cool down before you can load more paper.
  • People don't expect you to turn every printer on by hand in the morning and off at night. You don't need to custom-build your printer control and monitoring solution.
  • Nobody expects to print onto curved, heavily-convoluted surfaces or the inside of a sphere.
  • If you want to move a printer for easier access or replace it with a new model because it's dead, you don't have to worry about artistic integrity or adjust your print-mapping software so output will work on said curved surface.
  • Printers aren't designed with consumables that require a trip back to a workshop to replace.
  • If 5% of your printers melt or char, it's considered a serious problem.
  • Printers are put in convenient locations. They aren't hung 50 feet above the floor, hidden inside a soffit or mounted atop a wall. Nobody puts a printer on an inaccessible ledge four stories above the ground. You don't need ladders, lifts or fall-protection gear to work on a printer.
  • If you don't get a printer back where it was with sub-millimeter accuracy, it doesn't use paper on another floor.
  • If you don't turn a printer off every night, it doesn't waste two-thirds of your toner and paper.
  • If third-party toner cartridges aren't up to snuff, they don't leave broken glass inside the printer.
  • If you want to replace an old printer, you don't need to move it or install custom optics because nobody makes one with the right throw length to keep printing standard paper sizes.
  • You don't have to call in a mechanical engineer & the metal fabrication shop to redesign a table because you want to move a printer two feet.
  • If people load a printer with colored paper, they understand why the output is that color.
  • Artists don't demand you use printers with output that can only be read in dim light because it's the only model that supports a short-enough throw.
  • You don't have to buy KVMs that support resolutions past 1920x1080 for your print servers, nor do you need to split KVM video signals out before your curved-surface print-mapping PC.
  • Epson inkjets excepted, if your techs neglect ink/toner changes or the people holding the pursestrings demand you run until empty, you don't end up with dead printers and/or broken glass everywhere.
  • I've never seen a toner cartridge get stuck inside a printer so badly that it had to be shipped out for service.

Windows Firewall with VLANs

I've just gotten VLANs setup and working in my home lab (using pfSense as a router, and a Netgear Layer 2 switch), and now the Windows Firewall on my DC/DNS/DHCP server is blocking all traffic from other VLANs.

All the firewall rules on the router are set to allow any, and turning off the Windows Firewall fixes the issue.

My question: How do I properly setup the Windows Firewall to allow connections from other VLANs? I want to use the Windows Firewall to restrict applications/ports coming into it, but I don't want it to care about the origin.

Microsofts Storage Spaces... Question regarding disks and parity

Assuming you have four disks, each 10gb, what's the difference between:

  1. Three disks in parity, with one hot spare.
  2. Four disks in parity, with zero hot spares.

Is one more reliable than the other? My understanding is that both can only suffer a maximum of one disk loss.

Making the move from sysadmin to Director of IT

I've been a sysadmin for 10 years now at my current company and have worked alongside the Director of IT that entire time. We're the only two people in IT, and support around 100 users. The current director is also a very good friend (someone I knew before taking this job) and has let me know that he will most likely be accepting a position with another firm in the next couple of months. I have every reason to believe that his position will be offered to me when he formally declares that he's leaving.

With all of that in mind, for those of you who have made this transition before what recommendations would you make, and what would you have done differently if given the opportunity? I see the fact that I have access to the current director for a couple of months as an opportunity to be ready to hit the ground running when I make the transition so that things are as smooth as possible for the firm.

I am arguing against introducing one Mac in Windows environment. Should I be more flexible?

We are a company with 40 computers and around 50 users. I am the sole sysadmin.

We hired a desiger and my boss told her it would not be a problem to provide her a Mac.

I think different for a number of reasons:

  • Office 365 Groups is not supported on Outlook for Mac.
  • Potentially upcoming LOB software could potentially be unsupported on a Mac.
  • Active Directory computer password expires faster on a Mac.
  • Our automatic signature distribution and update tool does not work on Mac.
  • Our automatic word template distribution and update tool does not work on Mac.
  • Mapped drives via GPO don't work.
  • Mapped printers via GPO don't work (actually printer and printer configuration)
  • Computer configuration via GPO doesn't work (e.g. lockout after 3 minutes of inactivity as per data privacy requirement)
  • I fear that one Mac will spam its stupid Mac folders all over our network drives.

Last but not least, I never worked with Macs before.

So, I am sure that some of the above could somehow be automised. But that would require me to dive into managing Macs, to which I simply don't have the time. And writing scripts and stuff also takes up a lot of time. I already have a long enough queue of tasks as it is. And I don't think it is wise to start managing a parallel environment of one Mac as the single admin in this company. I would have to always do work in those areas twice, once for Windows and once for that one Mac the new employee absolutely wants.

The issue is, that my boss already kind of promised the new person a Mac. And since that employee is the first one to do design stuff in our company (we had that stuff done by a design company before), I believe my boss has a strong intention to make the employee's start easy and keep her motivation up. Or to keep her from quitting, before she even starts. And you all know how bosses are, "all of the above shouldn't be a problem if I would start working on it, instead of arguing" or "I am confident you will tackle all the issues successfully", blabla...

What do you think? Am I being unreasonable? Or unflexible? Or do you think my points are valid?

Looking for an open-source monitoring system for a small network

I have a basic local network composed of a bunch of different ARM boards running Linux (about 10 currently, maybe around 15 in the future) and a few other special devices (a NAS running FreeNAS, a random printer, a power inverter I'm not sure yet how to communicate with).

I'm really not a sysadmin or even a devops, so I like simple (or should I say primitive) and secure setups. Typically, I don't do any virtualization or container based architecture, it's all just dedicated devices. Each device generally have one service running (mail, http, jabber, mpd, ...). One of the main downside is that all these boards run on MicroSD cards (yeah I know - I have a backup system on the NAS though). As a result, I really need a way to monitor closely this micro home lab.

I don't have any experience with the existing solutions and I'm starting from scratch. I'm aware of the bad reputation of Nagios and have heard a shit ton of solutions such as Zabbix, Prometheus, Inciga2, ... but it's hard to tell if they meet my needs.

I'll make a short summary on the actual needs:

  • monitoring 10-15 small local machines (+ 1 or 2 remote)
  • a model where most of the monitored machines push the info (for security reasons I don't want to open accesses in most of the cases, be it a special user over ssh or random service)
  • receiving alerts on any disk failures
  • receiving alerts on up and down of machines and services
  • receiving alerts on random anomalies (full disk, segfaults, ...)

What I do NOT need:

  • handling of virtualization or containers
  • scalability to large network
  • interface with any kind of cloud
  • a decentralized model (I can allocate another dedicated machine on the network for that purpose)

Ideally, the configuration of that thing would be simple & stupid so I can make sense of it, track it and maintain it without much pain on version bumps.

Segregating Websites with PHP/HHVM

Firstly sorry if this is the wrong sub reddit to ask these questions in!

I am in the process of creating a default secure configuration for a bunch of web servers and have a few questions.

The servers are going to be using either Ubuntu or Debian and running mysql / php+hhvm / apache. The sites are a combination of static html sites, drupal and wordpress. I was planning on either running the sites behind a reverse nginx (and maybe a caching server) proxy that handled all SSL on a separate server for speed - what are your thoughts on this?

My concern at the moment is that if one of the sites gets hacked, either through a vulnerability in a plugin or sql injection vulnerability, then all the sites on the server are compromised.

How do you separate websites so they are secure? Do you use different users per site and if so how does this work with apache or nginx? Is there anything else I should consider when I'm designing my setup?

Open Source Hypervisors in 2017

I'm trying to get into the world of virtualization and am having a tough time deciding between the hypervisors on the market. This is currently only for a personal server which runs resources for my (very) small business, but want to use it as an opportunity to learn about enterprise level virtualization as well. My workload would be almost entirely linux VMs.

So far the contenders I have found are: -oVirt/RHEV: From what I've heard, this is the most VMware-like of the lot. After a lot of effort and weird bugs, I was able to get a small installation running with a self hosted engine, and able to get a couple of VMs up and running. While it does have a decent feature set, the software doesn't look all that polished and I ran into a lot of issues, although ones I was able to resolve, while setting it up. Another pro for oVirt is that it has Red Hat's backing.

-Vanilla KVM w/ something like Kimchi for web management: Vanilla KVM worked nicely, but the feature set is very small. Also don't think that this is enterprise level or even for a small business. Kimchi also seemed like a nicely polished interface, but I haven't had a chance to test it. I'm worried that there aren't many developers on it.

-XenServer: Haven't tried it yet, but I have heard some good things about it, but all from posts that are a few years old. I get the impression that it's not really going anywhere. The other downside is that XenCenter is Windows only and while there are options like Xen-Orchestra, they cost money.

-OpenStack w/KVM: I know that OpenStack is way overkill for I'm trying to do, (run some simple VMs on a single server) but it is the only one on here that actually feels like a modern enterprise level piece of software, that is being kept up to date. I used Packstack to put it on Centos and the installation was actually surprisingly easy. The web management interface and CLI both seemed very nice. However, I wasn't able to get a VM up and running from an ISO. I believe that was because of problems with setting up a network, but I also think I could have spent more time on it. OpenStack also seems to have a different paradigm of virtualization. I'm not sure if this would interfere with me trying to use it the way I want to. (my VMs would still be more like pets than like cattle and I'm not sure it's worth the effort for me to transition.)

What do you guys think? Am I missing anything? Stuff like Proxmox was left off because it just doesn't seem to be used in the enterprise world. I'm particularly interested if there is anybody out there using oVirt or OpenStack in a small business environment and what their opinions of the two are.

Issues installing Sophos Central Endpoint over proxy with a logon script

So I have a logon .bat script that looks like this:

cd \ if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\AutoUpdate\license_agreements.txt" ( GOTO end ) Else ( REM pause ping 127.0.0.1 -n 20 > nul echo setting proxy... netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server=proxy.address.here:8084 ping 127.0.0.1 -n 10 > nul REM pause REM echo wait for 5 seconds REM ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > nul REM pause echo beginning sophos install \\DC-SVR2\Software$\Sophos\SophosInstall.exe -q -tps remove REM pause REM echo waiting for 10 minutes REM ping 127.0.0.1 -n 600 > nul REM pause echo resetting proxy netsh winhttp reset proxy ) :end 

Reddit formatting maybe a little wonky...

this is in a school behind a proxy

so as you can see it needs winhttp proxy to install, I found that this actually different to the proxy you set in IE.

I will try to keep this simple so I don't give misinformation

ON SERVER

  • running the script allows it to install on our servers
  • setting winhttp proxy manually and then running the exe allows in to install on servers

ON WORKSTATION

  • setting it as a logon script causes it to fail on workstations (cannot connect to internet)
  • running the script manually on a workstation causes it to fail (cannot connect to internet)
  • setting winhttp proxy manually on workstations and running exe causes it to fail (cannot connect to internet)

So what is different between it connecting to the internet on our server vs a workstation?

any thoughts appreciated...

Oracle Licensing and VMWare

So I've googled a lot and searched on here about the topic of Oracle Licensing and VMWare. Here's my scenario. We currently have a few Sparc T5 boxes that run solaris with oracle databases and apps on them (zones).

We have a current vCenter with 3 hosts in it, 2 different datacenters. In one datacenter there is 1 cluster of 2 hosts, 72 cores total. The other is 36 core host.

Our plan is to migrate from solaris to linux, but it looks like I'd have to license all host cores in vCenter after vsphere 5.1 due to vMotion. This is a lot and we don't have the cash to do it. To get around this, I was going to purchase a seperate vCenter and only put servers in this vCenter that match up to the exact number of oracle CPU/core licensing in a non DRS setup.

Anyone have experience dealing with this sleazy way of driving business to Oracle?

Pivoting from computer engineering to system administration

First of all excecuse me for I'm not a native English speaker so my English writing might be bad. I'm going to graduate with a computer engineering degree in four months but lately I've been more interested in linux system administration since most of the jobs I might end up working with my degree are probably java programming jobs which i don't really like, the problem here is that i don't think I have a decent preparation for this job, i used linux but for basic stuff also my university preparation regarding linux is more about how linux work on a very low level (paging , processes management , scheduling, syscalls , etc..) of course it helps but not so much , so I researched and what i understood is that learning bash scripting is essential also learning how linux work which is a bit broad so pretty much my plan is reading this three books

https://www.amazon.it/How-Linux-Works-Superuser-Should/dp/1593275676/ref=pd_sim_14_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=940KN4VPPC95Z5JG0SAQ

I know this is pretty basic and doesn't cover it all but it's what i could find. Also I'm a pretty knowledgeable in database and networking so this two aspects aren't really a problem, yet my knowledge in network security is pretty basic. So that's all, do you guys have any opinions or advice for me on how should I prepare myself to find an entry level maybe even an internship in system administration?

Never licensed Windows Server before. How do I license a single, 1-core VM instance of Server 2016?

We've been using entirely Linux for our entire infrastructure however we need a single tiny Windows VM to run a job that unfortunately couldn't run on Wine. Right now it's running on a 16-core Xen server. The Windows VM only has a single virtual core assigned to it. How do I even go about licensing this properly? I've been trying to figure this out on my own but this is incredibly convoluted and I'm glad I've only had to deal with Linux.

How far to go in removing windows10s phoning home/advertising/other garbage in a business environment.

We are starting to look into upgrading to windows 10 for several of our workstations, coming from windows 7. Which settings are worth taking a look at? how far do you go? just turning off privacy settings? reg edits? Any suggestions of docs that cover these things from a business perspective?

APC PowerChute without a Network Management card

Just wondering how some of you have configured graceful shutdown using PowerChute without APC's network management card. It seems the popular arrangement is to use the Network Card with the PowerChute Network Shutdown software, for which I have neither in my posession.

I've just racked an APC UPS that came with a copy of PowerChute Business Edition that I'd like to attempt to use via USB connection to one of our ESXi hosts (and then possibly script the process for a couple of other hosts connected to the same UPS).

If anyone has experience with this kind of setup, I'd be interested in hearing how you configured it. I'm a little confused as to where I am to install the Server and Agent components of the Powerchute software. I was expecting to deploy some kind of lightweight PowerChute .ova as a VM and pass through the UPS to it via USB, but that doesn't seem to be the case?

Thanks.

Setting up RADIUS to authenticate for both WPA2 Enterprise and OpenVPN?

Sup guys, so, right now I’m playing around with using our new pfSense firewall setup for a new VPN setup…looking to setup some sort of 2FA with it to replace our old and shitty PPTP VPN on our Server 2008 box. I’d like to use RADIUS to authenticate against AD for the VPN, no big deal, my question lies here: I already have WPA2 Enterprise setup and in production using my two Windows RADIUS servers (2008 R2) for authentication, in my setup anybody with a domain account can login to the wifi with the proper cert, it’s not dependent on group membership. For the VPN, I want to restrict VPN access to one specific security group…is it possible to keep my current NPS setup for the wireless, while restricting VPN access to a specific group? I was thinking I could add all required users for WiFi into a specific security group as well, but how would I allow those authenticating from the VPN to access the VPN, but not allow those from the WiFi group (unless they are in the VPN group) to access the VPN? Thanks guys for any help

Microsoft Server 2016 licensing (head bang)

Ok, still wrapping my head around this craptastic "core" licensing.

Say we have a small customer with need for a DC, terminal server, and a utility server. Planning to run a 2 proc x 4 core (8 cores total) vmware host, with those three servers running on it. I know the base bundle for Server 2016 is 16 cores, but does one copy of Server2016 on that machine allow me to prop up 3, 4, 5? VM's with a couple virtual CPUs on each? Or does that breach the area where Datacenter licensing benefits you? (Even my dang Microsoft vendor is having trouble telling me what's what).

Software for an up and coming sysadmin

Hello, all

So, I recently started my own software company. I already have a pair of SuperMicro 2u servers (X8 mobo) and a pair of Cisco MCS7825 I3 (they're a choice word that starts with S). I'm running ESXi (mostly CentOS 7 on the VMs) with a ton of other things like BitBucket Datacenter, pfSense router, and I'm working on SIP trunking and the like. No, it does not like VMWare. Not in the slightest. If it's any help, I also use AWS for a side project.

So, my question is simple. What software should I learn to use? I'm heavily looking into a career in technology, and want to make my resume as impressive as possible. I'm also in high school (please don't hate on me :P), so I've got plenty of time. Are there any specific pieces of software, or software packages I should use? Especially ones that I'll use in the future with a career.

Thank you in advance. I know this isn't the standard thing for this sub, but I feel like everyone here has the most experience possible. Sorry for the formatting, I'm on mobile.

TL;DR: Up and coming sysadmin wants to know what software to learn.

What is your method for dealing with office politics?

Every office has some level of drama or politics going on. Often times the politics drive the decisions and strangle IT workers who just want to enjoy technology and do things right. The ever changing and volatile world of technology seems to compound the conflict...

So how do you guys and gals deal with it? We all have our own coping mechanisms. I have been in IT over 10 years and have dealt with plenty of bad managers, unstable coworkers, yes men, kiss asses, and poor decisions. I always just try to do my job, worry about myself, be polite, and remind myself I can always find a new job. But that is a lot easier said than done.. It is hard not to be negatively affected by the drama around you. Sometimes we take it home.

Clonezilla alternative

Hello. Any similar good software like clonezilla? I really like the software, but the limitation to restore or clone disks with low capacity than the original is a problem.. Can't restore a 20Gb image from 500Gb disk to 80Gb disk (like Ghost) in a simple way...

"I think the Cisco switches are cheaper"

Words I never though I'd hear.

A few weeks ago my boss, the VP of Finance, calls me into his office. "I have a proposal here, signed off by a VP and the CEO. Looks like they're trying to create a network, right?"

I look at the proposal and indeed. It was a proposal for a temperature monitoring system for the production floor, with a bunch of network switches etc.

I am the Director of IT, but I never had even seen this proposal before it was signed off on. It came out of nowhere.

The switches were very basic switches, unmanaged fast ethernet switches, but ruggedized and meant to be installed on shop floor.

Turns out the plant engineer was creating a whole new data collection system, even with servers, software and everything. Nothing was ever discussed with IT.

It took a lot of politics, meetings, and choice words all round before the IT part of the project was turned over to IT. It wasn't easy by any means, and there was a lot of resistance. "But we're not creating a network." "We were going to run it by IT once it was installed."

Turns out the switches were not necessarily best suited for our fiber core switches. They were all copper. And unmanaged, so they couldn't handle VLANs or routing.

The switches got replaced with a better suited model.

Here come the words that I thought I would never hear. There are some industrial switches, made by Allen Bradley, which are basically rebranded Cisco switches, with some firmware modifications. And then there are the same Cisco switches. Same form factor, just no proprietary functionality.

The Allen Bradley switches are 2.5 times the price of the Cisco switches.
