When deploying Cylance for the first time in a new environment, best practice is to have it run in "audit mode" where Cylance detects but does not act upon it. Of course, this would not be very secure if you don't have another anti-virus in place. Starting from Windows 10 and Server 2016, Windows Defender is automatically installed and active if no other anti-virus product is installed. However, installing Cylance the regular way would result in Windows detecting the presence of Cylance and disabling most of the functionality of Defender. Luckily, you can workaround the issue by having Cylance not register as an anti-virus with Windows Security Center during the installation (or af  ...

Starting from Debian 10 ("Buster"), phpMyAdmin no longer exists as a package in the Debian repository. Instead, it needs to be installed manually. I found this article online which seems to explain the process very well:

Here's a quick and dirty guide to the setup of a read-only Domain Controller (RODC) on a Core-based installation.

Deploy your Core-based server like you normally would.

Using sconfig, perform these tasks in order:

Configure network.

Optionally, configure computer name.

Join the computer to the domain.

After the reboot, install the required role via Powershell:

Install-WindowsFeature AD-Domain-Services

After that's successful, using Powershell, promote the server to an RODC (adjust parameter values accordingly):

Install-ADDSDomainController -Credential (Get-Credential) -DomainName domain.local -SiteName "Default-First-Site-Name" -InstallDNS:$true -ReadOnlyReplica:$true -For  ...

When syncing a OneDrive business account, the root folder name consists of "OneDrive" followed by the company name as registered in M365, e.g. "OneDrive - My Company Ltd.". For certain companies with longer names, this could result in lengthy folder names. There is a way to change (rename) this folder, though.

Completely quit the OneDrive application.

Using either Finder or Terminal, navigate to the folder: ~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.OneDrive-mac/Data/Library/Application Support/OneDrive/settings/Business1/

There are a few INI-files in there. One will be a randomized SID-like number, followed by .ini, e.g. a183b583-a64a-28fd-818a-b4918a569c95.ini. Open this fil  ...

Despite of Cylance being supported on macOS 11 Big Sur since build 1580, you may encounter an issue where Cylance would still show a red dot in its icon in the menu bar, and opening the GUI would still show this error message:

Driver Failed To Connect, Device Not Protected

To resolve this, you need to give the agent and the new Cylance ES Extension full disk access:



On macOS Catalina and earlier, Cylance used kernel extensions, providing full disk access via the macOS kernel. Because of the deprecation of kernel extensions and the subsequent introduction of the new system extensions mechanism introduced in macOS 11 Big Sur, you need to explicitly allow full disk access to the system ext  ...

macOS installers come equipped with a script (called createinstallmedia) to create a macOS bootable USB installer drive. But sometimes it may be necessary to create a bootable ISO. The process is similar as we will use a DMG image instead of a physical drive to create the installer, which can then be converted to ISO.

Follow these steps to get the work done:

First, download the macOS installer of your choice (direct links to most installers can be found in this article). Note that you need to do this on a supported Mac with an Apple ID. The installer app will be placed in your Applications folder.

After downloading, the installer will automatically be launched: ⌘ + Q out of it.

In order to install a fresh copy of Windows Server on a VM with the VMWare Paravirtual SCSI controller, as the driver for the PVSCSI adapter is not included in the default Windows Server ISO, you would use the built-in floppy images to make the PVSCSI driver available during the installation, avoiding the need to install using a different SCSI controller and then swap the controller after the installation of the guest OS and VMWare Tools.

To facilitate this, you would add a virtual floppy drive, connect the correct floppy image containing the PVSCSI driver, and then load the driver during the disk selection portion of the installation wizard. Unfortunately, since the deprecation of the Flas  ...
