Auto-Shutdown Hyper-V free with UPS

<h1>Auto-Shutdown Hyper-V free with USB UPS</h1> <p>Recently i installed a Hyper-V 2012 R2 server (the free version) but my UPS doesn’t support Windows Core. No problem, we have PowerShell!! after some search on various sites – blogs – etc i end up creating the following script. It checks the battery status every 3 minutes, using WMI and when the battery drops below 50% is sends the shutdown signal. As long as you set the VMs to save on shutdown you are OK!</p> <p>I

Calculate Azure VHD actual/billing size

<p>Azure blob storage is billed based to how much data you use. So you can have an 1023 GB disk but if you use only 20 GB you will be billed for 20 GB. But, <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72x72/1f642.png"alt="?" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /> , if you write more data, lets say 50 GB and then you erase them, the free space will not automatically be released.</p> <p>sandrinodimattia, https://github.com/sandrinodimattia, released an

Match OnPrem Active Directory users to existing Office365 Users

<p>Lets say you have an Office 365 account and cloud only users with mailboxes and now you decide that you want to sync it and match the Office 365 users with your Active Directory users.</p> <p>I prepared a lab with one DC and I created a trial Office 365 E3 account with custom domain. I created users with the same username to both. At Active Directory I set the UPN to match the Office 365 user name and also added the email address.</p> <p>Next I enabled directory

File Server in-place Domain Migration

File Server in-place Domain Migration When migrating to a new domain a major part is the file server, especially if there are a lot of data and different permissions. Thankfully Microsoft has a very helpful tool called SubInACL. This tool can be used to read and update security permissions and is much helpful for file server in-place domain migration. The tool can be downloaded here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23510 But after searching a lot there is not a specific

AzureRm | Create External Load Balancer with two VMs

After my previous post, the internal load balancer with two VMs, this is a scenario using the External Load Balancer. The configuration includes a Load Balancer with a Static Public IP at the frond end and two VMs at the back end. The load balancer has two static routes for RDP, one for each VM and one load balance rule, the TCP port 80, common for web sites and applications. It uses a probe that checks a web page on both hosts to verify if they are active.   Lets start. First we need to insta

Windows package manager

Χαιρετώ τον κόσμο του autoexec.gr   Πριν 2-3 μήνες ανακάλυψα ένα πολύ χρήσιμο εργαλείο, κατά την γνώμη μου και θέλω να το μοιραστώ μαζί σας. Είναι ένας package manager για windows. Όπως υπάρχει το apt-get στα Debian linux και άλλα αντίστοιχα, τώρα έχουμε στα windows το Chocolatey. Δουλεύει χρησιμοποιώντας το Powershell. Η εγκατάσταση του γίνεται απλά τρέχοντας από ένα admin elevated command prompt την εντολή:   @powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((new-object net.web

Storing DDL Statements History

Ένας οργανισμός έχει πολλά SQL Server Instances, πολλές databases και σίγουρα πάνω από έναν DBA, DB developer που έχουν πρόσβαση σε αυτά τα instances και αυτές τις databases. Ζητούμενο από όλους είναι να γνωρίζουμε τις αλλαγές που έχουν γίνει σε αυτές τις databases σε επίπεδο schema αλλά και πότε μπήκε ένας χρήστης σε ποιο ρόλο και πολλά ακόμα στοιχεία όπως δημιουργία indexes, αλλαγή στο μέγεθος μιας βάσης κλπ. Όλα αυτά ακόμα και μέσα από το SSMS να γίνουν είναι Data Definition Language (DDL) st

The server principal already exists – Error 15025 troubleshooting

Πάντα υπάρχει κάτι που μπορεί να σε κάνει να χαμογελάσεις ευχάριστα ακόμα και αν είναι ένα μήνυμα λάθους!. Κάνοντας ένα τυπικό έλεγχο σε ένα παλιό Always On Availability Group διαπίστωσα ότι ένα domain group που είχε πρόσβαση στο ένα node δεν είχε πρόσβαση στο άλλο. Φυσικά αυτό θα έπρεπε να διορθωθεί καθώς σε περίπτωση που γίνονταν failover οι χρήστες του συγκεκριμένου domain group δεν θα είχαν πρόσβαση στο άλλο. Τι ποιο απλό από το να κάνει κάνεις αυτή την διαδικασία είτε μέσω SSMS είτε με τη
