Windows 2008

Monday, March 31st, 2008

I added a Windows 2008 domain controller to my network today:
1) I don’t need hyper-v so I installed “Windows 2008 Enterprise without Hyper-V” which ran pretty quickly, I did the “Server Core Installation” ofcourse.
2) I had to change my computer name (duh!): netdom renamecomputer %computername% /newname:blahdc08
3) I set the ip: netsh interface ipv4 set address “local area connection” static
4) I set the dns: netsh interface ipv4 set dnsserver “local area connection”
5) I ran dcpromo: dcpromo /replicadomaindnsname:””
/username:”kobi” /password:* /userdomain:””
/safemodeadminpassword:CHANGEME /installdns:yes
/rebootoncompletion:yes /confirmgc:yes /creatednsdelegation:yes

(I’m sure some people would prefer to write an unattend file but not me, I like to do things in my own way)

Everything is working just fine and I’m happy with it. I like the general concept of no GUI on servers, it’s not what I want yet but it’s getting there…

I also like the new “Protect object from accidental deletion” feature (I used to do it manually with denying “Delete subtree” until now).


Nero via remote desktop connection

Friday, March 28th, 2008

I was connecting with remote desktop to my vista machine and wanted to burn a DVD and got this: “If you are running Nero burning software via Windows Remote Login, you might not be able to access your drives for burning. This is a security restriction from Windows“.

I went to: Start –> Run –> gpedit.msc –> Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System –> Removable Storage Access –> All Removable Storage: Allow direct access in remote sessions and fixed it by changing it to Enabled.
