Troubleshooting with Remote Desktop Connection – Solving the issues

Problems like: Cannot connect to the machine Not able to sign in on the machine / user / server Security is blocking my connection Quote: "To sign in remotely, you need the right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services. By default members of the Administrators group have this right.

Personal notes no 8. Kill a running process

Sometimes you want to shutdown a running process before running an installation of a piece of software. In that case the native XP/win7/server08, utility TASKKILL comes in handy. In a case where I had to upgrade MS Office Communicator to Lync! this would fail if OC was active on the users machine. So I just ran this command to close it before uninstalling. cmd.exe /c TASKKILL /IM communicator.exe /T /F No need to call any 3rd party tools like PSkill or any thing else..

Personal notes nr.1 – USMT 4.0 with multiple partitions

So to remember all the small stuff/solutions I encounter during my work day, I decided to create a series of short post, as kind of reminder to myself on small tips and tricks , as swell as solutions to basic problems.  I figure that instead of writing this stuff down in a word doc, I might as well share it ( so don’t be surprised if some of the things seams almost to simple )   Today I ran into problems doing hardlink USMT 4.0 on some machines having tree partitions, (one of them being the BDE 300 MB Partition).

On my way to MMS 2010

It’s nothing less than a miracle. The airspace in Norway is now open. Right now I am waiting for a bus that will take me from Copenhagen to Oslo tonight 02:00 AM. The bus will take us thru Denmark, Sweden and finally to Oslo (Captital of Norway). Here (hopefully) I will board my flight to Washington. This will take me around 30 hours; but hey – there is gold waiting for me at the end of the Rainbow. Great sessions with the number 1 System Management speakers of the world :-)
