WAS - cloud storage system that provides customers with the ability to store virtually unlimited amounts of data over any period of time. WAS was introduced in production-version in November 2008. Previously, it was used for internal purposes only Microsoft applications such as, for example, storing videos, music and games storage of medical records, etc. The article is based on work with the service repository and dedicated to the principles of operation of these services.
I have been recently requested to build a server for one of our clients who’s running a little web hosting company providing a cPanel shared and VPS hosting solutions. Client was looking to virtualize 3 virtual servers on a single physical machine (host). His budget was estimated to be around $1600 per server.
After migrating your Exchange server (I’ve seen this in transition to exchange 2007 and 2010) the PublicFolderDatabase for your OfflineAddressBook is still pointing to the old servers public folder store.
When you run the get-OfflineAddressBook | fl command in a exchange management shell on your new server, you get a result like this:
After someone (accidentally) deleted a exchange public folder in a exchange 2010 organization, you can easy recover the deleted folder using ExFolders. ExFolders is the exchange 2010 replacement of the PFDAVAdmin tool. ExFolders must be run on a exchange 2010 server and it can connect to Exchange 2007 or 2010.
Download the Exchange 2010 RTM ExFolders tool here and the Exchange 2010 SP1 version here.
Since Windows Small Business Server 2011 is becoming a popular choice for small and mid-size businesses. I would like to take a look at the installation process and after that the typical SBS configuration wizards. Because all of this will be a very long post I will cut it in several parts.
Before you even start with the installation make sure your hardware meets the system requirements.
It has been pointed out that SBS 2011 Essentials does not have the familiar wizards to create VPN access to the server. Though a better and MUCH more secure option is to make use of Remote Web Access, or add a VPN capable router that supports an IPSec client, on occasion there are reasons to still make use of the native Windows VPN feature. Where SBS has traditionally supported the PPTP protocol for its VPN, this article will address creating similar service.
Remote Web Access file sharing is the new feature added to the Small Business Server 2011 family. It allows users access shares and the files they contain on SBS server remotely. With file sharing in RWA you can:
* Upload and download files
* Create and delete folders underneath the shared folder
* Cut, copy and paste files
* Rename files and folder
* Drag and drop the files (requires browser add-on)
If you’re trying to get some understanding of how Symform works this post will be very helpful.
I’ve been interested in Symform’s concept of cooperative storage since I first saw it scribbled on a napkin and a couple of powerpoint slides. When I saw it I knew immediately that it was the Eureka! moment that business continuity had been waiting for. I got in on a very early beta, experienced some early beta type snafu’s and then the product released and I started some of my clients on it. It worked and cooperative storage was born.
