Time issues on Windows SBS 2008 Visualized Server

Time issues on Windows SBS 2008 Visualized Server

Check in hyper v on the Host server and click on the Windows SBS server or whatever domain server you have and check the integration features and see if  the time sync is ticked if so untick time sync and press apply.

Then copy and paste the below into a notepad doc and save it as X.bat (time.bat make sure you drop down and save under all file types) :

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\VMICTimeProvider /v Enabled /t reg_dword /d 0 /f

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config /v SpecialInterval /t reg_dword /d 1 /f

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config /v SpecialPollInterval /t reg_dword /d 60 /f

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual “/manualpeerlist:ie.pool.ntp.org,0×1″ /reliable:yes

w32tm /config /update

net stop w32time && net start w32time

w32tm /resync /force

w32tm /query /source

once you save it run the  ON THE DOMAIN CONTROLLER SERVER and wait 2 mins and you will see the time reset,

Then run this on the Host Server in a command prompt :

net stop w32time && net start w32time

Then all should be working if you run the above command on the workstation this will update the time on them as well.

Deleting the DATASERVICECOMPONENTS.LOG in Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2008

Windows SBS 2008 installs everything onto a single drive by default – this can lead to problems with disk space down the line – particularly with log files out growing their boots and taking up more than their fare share of hard drive space.

The DataServiceComponents.Log is located at: C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Logs\MonitoringServiceLogs

The DataServiceComponents.Log in use by the Windows SBS Manager Service so before you can delete it open up services by click ‘Start’ then ‘Run’ and typing in ‘Services.msc’ then hit ‘Enter’ and browse for the Windows SBS Manager service and right click and press on stop.

Then Delete your DataServiceComponents.Log and then go back to Services and start up Windows SBS Manager and it will recreate the DataServiceComponents.Log but it will be a smaller size.

Thats all you need to do to shrink the file.

Marketing Webinar

Thinking about yesterdays webinar, a lot of interesting stuff was discussed.  John Schutte was very insightful about how our own attitudes towards marketing (since we are not marketing experts) can hamper us before we even begin “.. I tried it once and it didn’t work!…” “It’s an expensive waste of time..”  Challenging our own mental blocks has to be the starting point.

Kind of staggering to hear form Paul Haslam of the web bureau all that goes into website creation strategy. It is not just finding a web designer and having a sense of the look and feel you want.  To make you website really work for your business is an art! Of course you are probably not going to become an expert in this area, but really good to have an idea of what an expert should be considering on your behalf.

We first came across Gareth Dunlop of Fathom_ at an Enterprise Ireland seminar in Portlaoise in the summer and we really engaged by his vision and understanding of the medium that is ‘the net’

The logic that if you are not looking after your customers the web just makes it more visible rings very true.

Understanding what your digital voice, footprint and shadow are and what they say about you is fundamental.

OSX Mountain Lion

Greetings Mac users!

Just a quick note to let you all know that Apple last week released the latest version of their Mac Operating System called Mountain Lion. There are literally hundreds of improvements and refinements – far more than I can list here – with perhaps the most relevant for you all being the addition of Messages ( iMessage to iPhones ), Notification Centre, Notes, Reminders and Dictation ( built in Voice Recognition ). One feature that may be useful to those of you with Apple TV’s at home is Airplay Mirroring – the ability to wirelessly mirror your Mac’s screen ( with audio! ) in high definition to any TV via an Apple TV ( my other half loves this one! ).

For a complete list of what’s new see http://www.apple.com/osx/whats-new/features.html. They also have a video at http://www.apple.com/osx/#video outlining many of these new features.

Interestingly it also seems to resolve an issue some of you may have experienced with slow printing of PDF documents.

To upgrade go to the App Store on your Mac, find Mountain Lion ( it’s top of the charts at the moment so it shouldn’t be difficult to find ) and buy it – it’s only €15.99. It is a 4GB download so it is likely to take quite a while to download but you can keep working on other things while it is downloading. The installation itself in very straightforward – you accept an agreement, click on install and it goes off and does its thing. It takes about 25 minutes to a half an hour to complete so you would probably be best to do it during lunch or after hours or some other time when you won’t need to use your machine.

One final thing to note is that if you have multiple Mac machines you only need to buy it once – the App Store licensing model means you are allowed install it on all of your other machines. I’ve installed it on my iMac and two MacBook Air’s at home with no problems and it runs beautifully on all.

Any questions give us a shout.

Regards,

Rob
