Quote from: USMC Kato on January 18, 2014, 04:08:26 PM

As long as any male or female meet the standards, it's A-OK
But how do you feel about lowering the standards to allow more females to succeed? Why not lower the standards for the men as well so more men can succeed?
I don't have an issue with women fighting, but it can't be good or safe for them to lower the standards to get the female recruitment numbers up.
Even though everyone is considered a soldier first, why not lower the standards for certain MOS's? Maybe one's that have very low chances of being ion the front lines?

I'm actually in the process of interviewing for a couple of higher end helpdesk spots and needed to refresh my skills. It's been a while since I worked on servers from scratch. (I've done some basic maintenance and such for a while now and have plenty of workstation/stand alone PC repair experience). I've been able to setup the domain with AD, share printers through GPO, configure different security access, etc.. without too much trouble.. Plus, at least I know I was going in the right direction with the mapped drives, so I feel better about that (but still sucks when 1 small tiny error flummoxes you!)
I started this lab to get back in the game and a lot of it started coming back to me. (I do like the fact that Server 2012 seems a LOT easier to manage than Server 200 and 2003 which is where I left off)
I am basically just trying out different things and want to also emulate a full, brand new, deployment, which could mean a bunch of new users..
I would think that if what I want CAN be automated, it would make it easier on the admins, even for 1 or 2 new users at a time and from my basic searches, it seems like it can be done..
Gonna keep working on it.
Thanks for helping... I may come back for more once this current issue is figured out.

sorry my kid has been going crazy and I didn't see that you mentioned Active Directory.

I haven't found a way of what you are talking about.  We do use the \\servershare\%username% mapping in the GPO but that only maps the drive, it doesn't create the folder and apply the security.  I can see if I can find more info tomorrow

I do this for a living smile  I work on SAN storage arrays, and servers.  I manage over 2000 user accounts and many servers.  I mainly deal with GPO's and user accounts/computer policy.  I work for the Air Resources Board in California.
See now, with you dealing with that many users, I would think something like this would be nice! So as you add users, you go in and create the user folders and permissions manually? Even if you have an influx of new users?

Oh, since I have your attention.
Is there a way to have a username folder automatically created and mapped?
EX: new username: susan. logs into workstation for 1st time and in addition the the mapped drives setup already, a new folder is created on the server called susan and automatically mapped to U:

this way I don't have to manually create folders and mapped drives for each user.

I tried using the connect feature in the AD user profile to \\CH-DC-1\Documents\%username% and I also tried creating a mapped drive in the GPO to the same. I also made sure that the test GPO group had read/write permissions to the documents folder.

Do you use Active Directory?

At my work, we have a volume for people's personal folder. (I hate it)

Anyways we use Active Directory and under the profile tab (I think) there's  a spot where you can put in a file path with the folder name (we use their username) at the end of the path.  Then assign a drive letter, and it will create a folder and apply the permission to the location you gave it.

I'm not at work, so I'm not sure if I'm exact on which tab, but I believe it's under the profile tab.  Let me know if you need help and I can assist tomorrow when I have AD in front of me.  You may be able to do it via GPO but I haven't seen that option.
Yeah, I am using AD. I know about the profile tab you are talking about. that's the one I setup first where I mentioned using the connect feature. I know about adding the full username to the path, but what I am looking for is something that adds the path automatically.
So, say I have to add 20 users at once. instead of having to add the path \\servershare\bob, \\servershare\mary, \\servershare\john, etc, I am looking for a way to create the user accounts and the accounts make the path. that's why I was trying, \\servershare\%username%.  I was hoping this would work and from some quick, but dated research, some people have mentioned this should work. They also mentioned that doing so in the mapped drive section of the GPO should work, but neither worked for me.

Out of curiosity.. What do you do for a living?

Another thing I noticed.

On your manual mapped drive, you don't have files in the file path, so it looks like the path is \\CH-DC-1\Documents
whereas the gpo shows you have it as \\CH-DC-1\Files\Documents

Could that be the reason?  Invalid path?

Dammit! Something so simple staring me right in the face! Thanks for the help! This is why you need fresh eyes on things... Fixed the path by removing "files"..  forgot that I changed the share to be straight to Documents since I was going to setup multiple folders in the "files" folders at some point with different username permissions..

Do you have it so that it's item level targeted and then using the security group determining it's access?
(click on Common tab at the Drive Mapping window) Choose item level targeting, then select targeting.  Then choose the security group option under New Item.  Then choose your test group security group.  Apply the changes.



i'm away from home right now, but if I recall correctly, I did set it up with my test gpo (called "Test GPO", BTW)

135  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Server/GPO Question/Help on: January 13, 2014, 07:01:06 PM
So... I am using Oracle VirtualBox to setup a test lab for some refresher work. Currently running 1 Windows Server 2012 and 1 Win 7 Workstation in VirtualBox.
I have been doing IT type stuff for years and years, but have fell behind in the server stuff since my last position didn't really use it, so I setup this test lab last week to get back into the stuff.
I have the server setup as a DC and it has 2 virtual NIC's. (1 out to my regular network/Internet (Also setup for Internet connection sharing), 1 setup for local only to the workstation)
Workstation has 1 NIC to the local only network.
I setup a test user with a test group and a test GPO.
GPO adds a printer, some restrictions on Control panel and 1 mapped drive pointing to a local folder on the server
Workstation connects to the server/domain with no problem. It also accepts the GPO somewhat, in that the printer and restrictions hit the Workstation. It also hits the Internet...usually..
Problem is that the mapped drive won't show up. If I manually map the drive from the workstation it works, so it shouldn't be a permission issue. I have also tried disabling the firewall and using gpudate /force and rebooting.
Workstation is fully updated as well.
Tried Googling it, but solutions I found didn't apply.
Anyone with experience on this have an idea?

I have also noticed Amazon has started using USPS more lately, which certainly is a concern for me.  I hate to bad mouth the USPS, but I have had some absolutely horrible service from them in the past at my current address.  Getting other neighbors' mail regularly, getting my own mail lost, late deliveries, ignored posts to leave packages,
This has happened by me recently. more USPS deliveries than normal. some minor issues/delays, but I have had only one major issue so far though.. Had a package listed as undeliverable for a non-existent address and was being returned to sender. Had to shoot an email off to USPS and was pleasantly surprised when I received a reply the same day! Seems that they loaded the package onto the wrong postman's truck and since he didn't recognize the address, he marked it as wrong. The person who replied had it fixed and delivered the next day. I was really worried at first, thinking that by the time I had a reply, it would have already been sent back, but it worked out!

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,so....er..yeah)

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

Yup. You can't really make a HD conversion from DVDs. Increasing resolution through some kind of magic algorithm is, sadly, something that only happens in movies and TV shows. Missing data is missing data. A computer can't tell what's missing.
