When attempting to send and receive e-mail in Outlook 2010, you may get the error:

Error
Outlook data file cannot be accessed (0x8004010F)

This occurs when the Outlook profile is somehow corrupted.

You can attempt to resolve the issue by re-setting the delivery location in your Accounts, but sometimes this does not work, and the delivery location remains unset. In this case, you have to create a new Outlook profile, recreate your e-mail accounts in it, set the delivery location and reopen any other Outlook data files.

Since a recent update of OSX, there's an issue with the Java-plugin not being active, even though Java Control Panel says it is. This is because in Safari the plugin is still set to inactive.

To resolve, surf with Safari to www.java.com/nl/download/testjava.jsp. You see the Java website with in the center the notification that the plugin is not active. Click on the text to re-active the plugin.

If you've lost the password to the Trend Micro OfficeScan web console, you can attempt to reset it to something known by editing a certain file using notepad.

Find the file C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Officescan\PCCSRV\Private\ofcserver.ini. Open it with notepad and look for the parameter master_pwd. Change its value so the parameter reads:

master_pwd="!CRYPT!523F7DC2E525044E2800FCDEA7E5D78B70C0A4165387060525E3EE66D5D2D2F460EA361E712B5F871FD473C7A6C"

Using this hash changes the root password to trendmicro. Restart the OfficeScan Master service (via Services) to apply the new password.

With newer versions (10.0), you may also have to edit the file C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\O  ...

If you don't know the password of your Trend Micro OfficeScan client, you can still do the uninstallation by changing a value in the registry.

  1. As an elevated user, start up regedit.
  2. Navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion\Misc.
  3. Find the value Allow Uninstall and set it to 1.

You should be able to uninstall the client without a password prompt.

Almost forgot about these, and as I've never posted their links before, there they are:

  • XPize is a GUI enhancer for XP
  • Vize is a GUI enhancer for Vista

Both run on the same engine. These tools can almost completely change the appearance and visual styles of XP and Vista.

Starting from Windows 7, there's a folder %systemroot%\WinSxS which is part of the Windows Side-by-Side system. Incidentally, this folder can become quite large, usually because installing updates or new applications often installs new versions of components in the WinSxS folder while keeping the old versions. There is a way to clean up these old versions by running the command:

dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded

Additionally you can also use the disk cleanup tool to remove old service pack backup files.

If a host cannot be managed via vCenter or from vSphere client, you can still use the CLI (on the host itself or via network using SSH or vSphere CLI/RCLI) to partially manage the VMs on the host.

For this to work you must have already enabled the local console, Tech Support Mode and/or SSH access:

Enabling root SSH login on an ESX host (8375637)

Tech Support Mode for Emergency Support (1003677) (ESXi 3.5 and 4.0 only)

Using Tech Support Mode in ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 (1017910)

Once logged in, you can use these commands to control the VMs. Note that there are differences between ESX and ESXi.

The Computer Maintenance service in Windows 7 sometimes has a tendency to automatically remove desktop shortcuts to network locations, which can be really annoying. You can turn off this service locally or via GPO to prevent the shortcuts from being removed automatically.

Through Control Panel → Troubleshooting. On the left, select Change Settings, then choose to disable Computer Maintenance.

The policy setting is located at Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\system\Troubleshooting and Diagnostics\Scheduled maintenance. Set the policy setting Configure Scheduled Maintenance Behavior to disabled.

If Windows Server backup occassionally gives you a timeout, and you get the following error:

Error
The shared protection point operation failed with error 0x81000101.

This error is caused when the volume shadow copy is taking more than 10 minutes and is timing out. You can try to increase the timeout value to fix this issue. This is done by adding a registry key:

Fire up regedit.

Navigate to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP.

Create a new DWORD value with name CreateTimeout, set its value to the number of millis.
For 20 minutes this would be decimal 12000000 (20·60·1000).

Try re-running the backup. The timeout should no longer occur.   ...

When you're planning on configuring Fax Services on Server 2008, 2008R2, and their SBS counterparts (SBS 2008 and SBS 2011), it's strongly recommended to install these hotfixes as they resolve intermittent crashes with the Fax Server services.

It's highly recommended to install both hotfixes. On the link above, select the proper hotfix for your version of Windows Server. For SBS-users, select these:

  • SBS 2008 → 2008
  • SBS 2011 → 2008R2

The SBS 2011 Fax printer 32-bit drivers currently shipped with SBS 2011 are not compatible with Windows XP. They only work with Vista and newer. Attempting to send a fax on an XP machine with these settings does nothing and no error messages are displayed.

To solve, you can use the driver from SBS 2003 SP2, as these are compatible with the SBS 2011 Fax system. They can be found inside the Windows 2003 SP2 download (see below for detailed instructions), or directly from an SBS 2003 (located in c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3. The files you need are these:

FXSAPI.DLL

FXSDRV.DLL

FXSRES.DLL

FXSTIFF.DLL

FXSUI.DLL

FXSWZRD.DLL

Most people won't have an SBS 2003 with SP2 anymore.   ...

When you've recently changed your password, you will continuously be prompted to type in your password everytime you want to sync, and you don't see an option to always be signed in.

To resolve, you have to select to sign in as a different user, then re-enter your credentials. Signing in as a different user will show the checkbox to enable always be signed in. This method won't affect your synced data.

You can disable the password expiration for one or more users through Powershell.

$cred = Get-Credential

Connect-MSOLService -credential $cred

Get-MSOLUser | Set-MsolUser -PasswordNeverExpires $true

Note that you need to have the Microsoft Online cmdlets: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj151805.aspx

It's possible for Synology devices running DSM 3 or higher to enable support for NTFS ACL's. This allows Windows-users to set up Security through Windows Explorer itself. Most of the ACL types are supported.

NTFS ACL's have to be enabled for a share through the web-interface:

After upgrading ESXi to 5.1 on an USB device, you may get a warning message stating that the system logs are stored on non-persistent storage.



Since version 5.1, system logs are kept on the default scrap partition. If it's not specified, it defaults to ramdisk, which is non-persistent; upon rebooting, the system logs will be cleared.

To resolve the issue, you can manually specify a location for the logs to be stored. This can be any configured datastore (VMFS or NFS). To configure this, go to the configuration of your ESXi host, Software, Advanced Settings.



In the tree on your left, find the Syslog, global configuration section and enter a datastore name in the field Syslog.global.log  ...

To get this done, you need to install the proper update, downloaded from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917607.

Then, in the application that uses HTML Help, set its compatibility to Windows 98 / Windows Me.

If you're missing one of the required Windows Update services, you can use the attached registry fixes to re-register the services in Windows.

Notice
Be sure to check the proper architecture (32/64 bits) and OS version when downloading the registry fixes. Use only as a last resort.
