linking external accounts to active directory & software updates?

So im new to this and still learning and I had two questions.

First, how do you deal with multiple systems needing logins configured? Let's say I was using google apps for business, iRedMail, OpenVPN and Active Directory Directory Services. Would I be creating a user for each of those things or is there a way to tie it all into the active directory account?

My other question was about updates and software installation. Let's say I was in a post production enviroment (I am). At the edit suites when one editor needs adobe photoshop he installs it fine. The next editor would also need to install it taking up more space on the system? Same question for let's say our color correction suite, with 10-20 people using that same computer how would you go around installing the program and updates 20 times?

Server 2012 DNS Issues

I have a machine running Server 2012 (not R2). It's primary use is as a terminal server. I'm having an issue where applications on said server cannot resolve hostnames, internal or external. This applies to web browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox), Outlook, and an ERP client that points to another internal server.

I can, however, resolve any and all names through ping, tracert, and nslookup. They all resolve correctly. I can connect to the internal server by IP with no issue and mapped drives (mapped by name) seem to be working correctly. No other machine is having this issue in the environment.

So far I have: *Rebooted the server
*Check the hosts file (it's default)
*Changed the DNS settings on the NIC to 8.8.8.8 (no change)
*Reset TCP/IP and Winsock and rebooted
*Checked the firewall (disabled)
*Ran AV (clean)
*Checked Porxy settings (none set)
*Edited the hosts file and sites still won't resolve in a browser
*Checked Windows Updates but there doesn't seem to be any recent patching

I'm pretty much out of other ideas at this point. Any advice or a point in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Whats your thinking on training co-workers?

I'm a beltway bandit with a team of 5 other "Engineers". I'm the youngest on the team, by at least a decade. A few of these guys have extensive job history, and while they're not experts, they're definitely knowledgeable and experienced enough that we teach each other something new fairly often. I can rely on two of them to design and build components of new systems solo, troubleshoot, and be an engineer.

The other three however, I honestly can't figure out how they're getting through each workday. I'll use examples instead of criticism so I can try to be objective.

  • I watched two of them manually copy a custom font file across UNC to 200 Citrix PVS based VMs. They didn't update the image, so they did this task twice in a week when I originally recommended using a policy preference. I had also emailed them the poweshell cmd to do it to one-offs or in bulk when I saw them refuse to use GPPs.

  • Two of them were given a monitoring agent to deploy, which involved running a poweshell script that installed and configured it automatically. They fought with it a half hour before I overheard and went to help. They were double clicking the ps1. Like an .exe.

  • They cannot setup anything but a Windows server without roles. DHCP, a file cluster, none of it. SQL AO, admittedly a bit tricky, has been fully documented step by step by me, but also a no go. Not to mention a DB backup or maintenance jobs.

  • One guy opened a facilities ticket for phone issues, but his phone was in DND. For 2 months.

  • If anything breaks, outage, server failure, can't install software, they don't look at the eventlog. Ever. One guy actually just emails us a screenshot of a general error/console failure with no subject or text. Then comes and says "what's that?" We don't even have context for what he's doing half the time.

  • The three can't setup a working Citrix site or PVS system. I have each component documented step by step for installation and basic config. None of the components. It literally took 7 entire weeks for two of them to build a condensed 'silo' image that simply combined 8 different one-purpose servers into one, and then it was released without basic things like security software, and had IE8 on it so nothing worked.

  • VMware affinity rules, vmotion, vLans, switching local service accounts to domain service accounts, certs hitting expiration, snapshots that grow infinitely...all things in our clusters that they don't know about or have broken in the last 90 days.

  • 24/7/365 rebooting, patching (and not doing them consistently when they are done) despite me working with the team and mgmt to setup maintenance windows...and us hiring a swing shift dude for said tasks (that don't get done). Servers not rebooted for 45-90 days if I'm not policing them with scripts.

The list goes on. I've discussed these things with our management. They say they understand...and that's it. There's never a change or follow through. We have long meetings, big discussions, and get full team buy in on a new process or project, and then it just falls apart or never happens. We have a half hour tag up 3 days a week on ongoing tasks and a full hour weekly covering projects, but nothing moves forward. These guys don't know how to write a batch or PowerShell script, how to troubleshoot, how to do anything mildly complex with Citrix or VMware.

We had training credits, so the entire team had a 5-day Citrix course (minus me, I've had it already and we only had 5 seats). Our boss was renewing licensing, I discovered the unused credits, and we both agreed the team, who he knows is lacking tech skills, would definitely benefit, and I knew they'd also like the 5-day work from home training. Everyone seemed to like it.

Being Citrix, we have a wide range of Windows things in our stack supporting all the components and I'd categorize them as Jr. Admin level on all of them, at best. Shit breaks, there's no accountability, the experienced guys have to fix it, and we roll on.

TL/DR - I'm working with people the same level as me in title and responsibilities but half are boat anchors.

What's the level of training I should be giving these guys? I've walked them through a full site deployment before but it was casual. I didn't absorb all my knowledge from the air...I learned some from previous jobs/co-workers, some training, the rest trial by fire, but what's the line between information sharing and get your shit together? I'm not some golden expert myself. But with the other guys, we share and teach each other. One explained AD SID history and why that was screwing up user accounts, I showed him how to write a powershell script to diagnose and fix it and then slapped a GUI on it for our operations monkeys. We compliment each other well IMO with old school experience and new tech knowledge. Am I too patient? Should I ignore it? I'm automating anything I can away from these guys so they can focus on doing new stuff and not click-monkey maintenance work, but they're not improving. I have a massive 1000 line PowerShell healthcheck script that emails server status across the stack every hour...They can't even be bothered to read it and restart a service or reset a soon to be expiring password. It's color coded for highlighting issues!

Shed some light. Tell me what happens where you are and what I'm doing wrong or not doing right so I don't someday freak out on these dudes. I'm a 9-5 and leave it alone guy, and I don't touch a computer outside of work, so I'm more patient than most. Its a job not a life. But I'm also there to get it done and go home. I need them to engineer.

MediaWiki alternativ.

Hi.

TL;DR Looking for a wiki system with most of the functionality of MediaWiki that doesn’t have to do lookups in online databases all the time.


I have this wiki that runs on MediaWiki, using mySQL on a Debian Linux machine.

It is working very well, but I am kind of afraid that one day either Debian, MySQL or MediaWiki, in one way or another, will fall out of sync, maybe because of some update, where I must undergo a major updating work, before the site is up and running again, and where I might lose data in the process.

The way it is set up now, all information is saved in the database with mySQL, so without MediaWiki, I think it is almost impossible to see the data.

The data is just articles and pictures that link to each other, just like Wikipedia.

There is also already an intranet set up, with servers that could be used.

A few requirements for the system would be a user interface that is totally browser based, with the possibility for users to change the site information. But also, the ability to track changes and restore old versions, so that one user can’t ruin everything by a mistake. And it should have a search feature.

What it doesn’t need, is the ability to have 1000 users on the site at the same time or file sharing.


Does anyone know an wiki system that for example creates html sites that can be shown in a standard browser without having to make database lookups all the time?

Or maybe a whole other system that would work well for this?

Am I maybe looking at this the wrong way?


Hope you can help. Thank you.

cannot update firmware on perc h800 in r720xd.

Title says it all. I cannot for the life of me figure out how I can update this stupid firmware. I have an r720XD with an h800 card in it so I can connect to an MD1000 DAS. Right now my MD1000 wont detect any of the drives because they are not Dell drives. I know that the current firmware removes that limitation.

The server is ESXi. I tried updating it through the lifecycle controller but the 12.10.7 update is not listed (nor is any update for the h800)

I tried downloading the DUP and putting it on a usb and pointing the lifecycle controller to it but it says that the update is not supported.

If this were a windows server I could probably just run the damn update from inside the OS but I can't (or don't know how I can) do that in side ESX.

Any ideas? Am I going to have to take this out and find a server that was designed to run this card?

SAN recommendations - whats out there?

So I've finally convinced work to replace the current hodge-podge of external disk units and boxes with a decent fiber-channel SAN.

However, I am way behind the curve on what's good in the world of storage, so I'm asking you fine folks.

Requirements aren't too onerous - minimum of 60Tb stroage expandable up to probably 100-150Tb, FC connectivity, no SSD (spinning disk), and I'd prefer to keep the individual disk size to 2Tb or lower if I can.

Budget is negotiable, but somewhere between $AU 70k and $AU 200k was thrown around - but if I need to spend more to get something which will future proof me I will.

Connectivity will be to HP C7000 chassis, and via brocade switches (existing) at 8gb.

Hit me with your recommendations, folks.

Edit : Some of the vendors recommended so far only do flash storage - I'm very concerned about the reliability of flash disk in storage - so feel free to convince me I'm an idiot and that there's nothing to worry about these days.

Dont know where to begin

I recently got a job with company that a beer distributor. I have experience as a senior desktop specialist and some experience with a few direct reports but I wasn't expecting what I've walked into.

I'm now an IT supervisor reporting to the Administration Manager and I'm replacing someone that had been with the company for over a decade and build/installed everything from the ground up. The problem is he was so over worked and pulled into so many directions it seems like he never got to give any one area the attention it needs. He knew the environment so well that he could troubleshoot and resolve issues on the fly but was a packrat of paperwork and saved random information everywhere, some of it useful but most of it is just really out of date.

Some of the issues include core business applications build off an AS/400 environment but moved to a SaaS with a new web interface, CAT5 in wall wiring, a phone system over 25 years old, wireless issues, AD installed on all servers, VMware, a software driven pseudo SANS with about 5% free space, No ticketing systems, AD issues, and mobile iphones and ipads everywhere with a partly configured MDM.

I can slowly work through the technical issues but I don't even know where to begin with the Supervisor tasks. I could use some advice on how / what I need to document first or what I should priorities first. Any advice would be appreciated.

I also want it to report stats on what was pulled from cache and what was pulled from net. We have a Watchguard XTM 25 and Hyper-V. If it can be done in a VM then that works better.

What are the steps you take to vet a software (freeware) before allowing users to use it on your network?

1) I install the program on a test machine, watch wireshark traffic to see if it calls home. 2) Check dev's website

Any other steps ya'll take?

Is 2.6-3.9 seconds of load time terrible? Am I being to harsh on IIS?

Hey guys, running an intranet via Wordpress, using IIS, and I get the above performance, dont get me wrong, I know its not slow, but when I google about IIS hanging etc, its all guys waiting 30s.

Is this as good as it gets? I dream of instantaneous loading.

4 seconds is a long time when your testing and literally waiting for each load, maybe in deployment people are less concerned with this?

Has anyone got a better time?

Cheers

EDIT; Thank you to ANUSBLASTER_MKII, his solution got me down to 1.04 seconds, from here i will try for further improvements, maybe i can get it to load before i even turn the PC on next.

Cheers
