This is an old method, yeh I know. But not everyone moved on to the PowerShell yet.
Anyway, if you’re trying to import a CSV file to Active Directory, and got the error message says:
Invalid file format. DN Attribute not defined
Just try to remove the Unicode switch “-u” from your command. If that works, then re-save (save as) the CSV file using Notepad, and make sure to select the unicode option, NOT the UTF-8
USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK
You may come to a situation where the client is unable to use an Exchange aware backup solution, and for temporary situation, they cannot use the Windows backup. So basically you need to reset the Exchange LOGs without performing any actual backup.
This is applicable to Exch 2010 & 2013 on Windows 2008, 2008R2, 2012, and 2012R2
It works with single server, as well as DAG setups
Open elevated CMD
Type “add volume E:”
(considering E: is the drive where LOG files exists)
Type “begin backup”
(This action will take some time, depending on the number of LOG files exist, and connection speed)
Type “end backup”
You should notice now the LOGs are being deleted
Make a full backup after this to protect the data
I can understand Cisco have a problem with Microsoft, but I don’t understand they have a problem with people.
The express switch is not express at all. The interface is extremely limited and annoying with the stupid restrictions they put on it.
I have no idea what happened, but the following scenario was working just fine for couple of weeks, then suddenly decided not to work anymore!!!!
Cyberoam firewall (FW) connected to the switch on trunk interface G1 defined as router type connection
FW is configured with subinterface for voice VLAN
FW running DHCP service for both default and voice VLANs to allow clients connects over VPN to our main office
Now, and for no obvious reason, the switch decided to not allow anyone on VLAN 2 (the voice VLAN) to communicate with IP Phones. Even when I’m configuring the port as “Server” role and set it on VLAN 2
You may get slow start up with message displayed on the message center says “INTKEY COULD NOT PROGRAM” for few seconds.
Well, it’s as simple as the car telling you to replace the battery 🙂
First thing to check is the logs
Get into CLI of the callmanager (ssh) and check the files list:
file list activelog cm/trace/dirsync/log4j
then view the latest (by date) log file:
file view activelog cm/trace/dirsync/log4j/
Should the error be clear for verification and guide you in the right direction
Remote Desktop connections fails to host after configuring RemoteDesktopCertificate template in your internal CA
You’ll have an error in the event log of the target machine like this:
The TLS protocol defined fatal error code is 40. The Windows SChannel error state is 1205
Most likely this is a Windows 8, 8.1, 2012, or 2012R2
If that is the case, you’ll have to delete the certificate from the system (the one issued for RDP template) and make sure it will NOT generate new one using the same template.
Then restart the machine (or you may try to restart Remote Desktop services only) and you should be able to login again.
If you’re looking for the reason behind it, then you’ll need to read more about the SHA algorithm and the updates pushed into Windows OS in latest versions.
I’d suggest you check this blog which has a nice topic about this subject: http://www.dotnetnoob.com/2013/10/hardening-windows-server-20082012-and.html
Doesn’t really matter what feature you’re trying to enable, or which Windows OS you’re working on.
This error is common for those who have no Internet access, or slow connection and the offline (/source) key needed.
If you try to use the PowerShell to perform the same operation you’ll get a line in the log similar to this:
FIOReadFileIntoBuffer:(1415): The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect
If you got such a thing, then most likely you have a file corruption on the disk. So try the following steps:
- chkdsk /r
- SFC /scannow
These commands will scan the disk and the system protected files. Then run the following for Dism cleaning:
- Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
- Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
After that you should be able to re-run the enablefeature command again without issues.

You may get into situation where you’re unable to access (or even see) the files you want to access. Although you have administrative permissions, and you can see the files from within the application Window (in my case this happened with PuTTY). When you click browse from inside the application you can actually see the files are there and there is a lock at the corner of the file icon.
When you right-click the file, select properties and go to security tab, you’ll only be able to see the ACL. But no mater what you do, you will not be able to see the owner or modify the ACL entries, although your account has been granted the full control in the ACL.
The Windows (at least version 7 I’m using) have a nice feature that causes this confusion. The original root of the issue is the UAC feature, which prevent the account from writing inside the program folder even of the user has admin level. In the above case and in order for Windows to not prevent the working process or give an error, it simply create all files in a shadow location. Something like the file pointers in Linux OS.
Browse to (%systemdrive%\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\%programfiles%\%applicationfolder%) and you’ll find the file located there.
Just realized, I was working so hard for to make the working environment as much friendly as possible. However, I became doing the job of my team. Make things easier for them doesn’t really help anyone there, and (obviously) turned back on me with overload and lower quality outputs. Even worse, it switched my attitude to a very bad one at both home and work places.
رأيت فيما يرى النائم أن الجيش وضع خارطة الطريق في مصر الحبيبة
رأيت أن الخارطة تشمل انتخابات جديدة لا تسبتعد أحداً
رأيت أن أحد الفرقاء فاز بالإنتخابات كما فاز سابفاً
رأيت أن الجيش بارك اختيار الصندوق وانسحب إلى مكانه الطبيعي
رأيت أن جزءً من الشعب لم يعجبه ذلك وأعلن احتجاجه
ثم استقيظت لأرى انقلاباً عسكرياً
