The following events were constantly repeated through the Operations Manager event log (Applications and Services Log/Operations Manager)   Event ID: 31551 Provider Name: “Health Service Modules” Task Category Data Warehouse Time: 13:03 Failed to store data in the Data Warehouse.

Windows Azure Pack (WAP) Site to Site VPN (S2SVPN) with Cisco ASA

Problem I’ve run into an issue when a customer was using a Cisco ASA 5515 to connect into our WAP deployment. Cisco is a big player in the networking market and one would think that connecting a device such as this to a Windows Server Gateway (WSG) WAP S2SVPN would be straight forward. Reason There are a few key implementation differences with how the WSG and Cisco ASA implement IKEv2. As WSG uses RRAS under the hood, we have to look at how RRAS works. Currently RRAS is configured to send an IKEv2 tunnel with a Traffic Selector of...

Windows 10 – Where is my 3rd Monitor!?

Well like most of us mobility workers, we don’t always make it into the office. Today I showed up at the office and actually had time to sit at my desk. Odd, my 3rd monitor wasn’t working. Worked fine in Windows 8.1. Did the usual checks… Windows 10 is not even showing the monitor in the display settings Unplug and re-plug the cables Check the drivers I unplugged my 2nd monitor which was working and the 3rd monitor kicked in@ System Graphics cards: Intel Core i7 w/ Intel HD Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M The Fix: Upgraded the drivers, Windows 10 still did not show it. But now I’m 100% updated! Looked at settings in NVIDIA Control Pannel. NVIDIA showed that all the monitors were connected to the Intel HD Graphics Next step was to load the Intel Graphics Properties and click the Multiple Displays Fixed! Life is...

Overview of Patch Solution

When I decided to write PatchSolution it was to solve some very specific issues with a customer that I was working with. I am really pleased to now be able to start documenting this and sharing with the community. When looking at PatchSolution below is the Architecture that we used when building it Remember PatchSolution is free and can be downloaded from http://patchsolution.codeplex.com Components Automatic Updates WSUS Patch Solution Scripts Scheduled Task Group Policy Configuring Computer Maintenance Windows Automatic Updates Most organizations will have an installation of WSUS. This minimizes the amount of updates that needs to be downloaded from the internet and distributed to servers or workstations. In turn, these devices have been configured to use WSUS. By default, download and install the patches at 03:00. This is so far away from a optimal solution for any company, regardless of size. There are many ways to configure automatic updates to download and install or notify the users or administrators to install patches. The Patch Solution aims at simplifying and centralizing the process. The Patch Solution is basically a wrapper that calls into the Windows Update API and forces it to do a update scan. Now again, as this uses the general Windows Updates API, if the computer is target to use the Microsoft Updates servers on the internet, then it will do just that. Of course after the...
