We have a huge cloud migration coming up and have been syncing data for weeks now. It finally finished syncing, however the sync tool that we use broke the NTFS permissions… so I was looking for a way to export and import the NTFS permissions only.

ICACLS seem to work pretty good for that.

Just a word of warning, the more files and folders you have, the longer it takes. The import took several hours for me.

I run today into an odd issue, a user was not able to to RDP into their new Terminal Server.

RDC1

 

When you check on the RDP connection tab it says NLA is not supported.

RDC2

The cause seems to be an issue with a DLL file in the Registry.

And here is fix:

Configure Network Level Authentication
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
2. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
3. In the details pane, right-click Security Packages, and then click Modify.
4. In the Value data box, type tspkg. Leave any data that is specific to other SSPs, and then click OK.
5. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders
6. In the details pane, right-click SecurityProviders, and then click Modify.
7. In the Value data box, type credssp.dll. Leave any data that is specific to other SSPs, and then click OK.
8. Exit Registry Editor.
9. Restart the computer.

I hope you all have at least heard of Spiceworks, a free, simple yet powerful multi-user web application that allows you to inventory, monitor, report on and troubleshoot your network, run a help desk, and access a community of IT pros – all from one easy-to-use interface.

However to me, Spiceworks is more than that. Along with the Spiceworks ‘products’ you also get access to the community, a home, a safe haven, a trading post for knowledge, skills and experience, a sometimes a lot of silliness… :o)

At over 6 million IT pros strong, The Spiceworks Community’s a place where IT pros trade tech tips, show off their awesome projects, share real-world advice from the IT trenches… and have a laugh.

Being around in the Spiceworks community for years, I only recently decided to actively participate in discussions, helping answering questions and testing applications.

I helped to Beta test the Spiceworks Network Monitoring Software and the new (and at this time still work in progress?!) iOS Spiceworks App for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch, found bugs and helped to improve things.

If you work in IT, check out my profile and or join us, I promise, you wont regret it! RAWWWR!
