Comment on KB3058168: Update that enables Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 KMS hosts to activate Windows 10 by spidermitch https://blog.workinghardinit.work/2015/06/18/kb3058168-update-that-enables-windows-8-1-and-windows-8-kms-hosts-to-activate-windows-10/#comment-1962 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:25:11 +0000 https://blog.workinghardinit.work/?p=8009#comment-1962 This is really helpful. I was trying to get KMS to activate W10 after installing KB3058168 & it was making a proper connection, but saying it couldn’t find an activation server, even though the KMS server showed it made a connection in event viewer. Then after reading this, it dawned on me that we haven’t actually updated our MAK. Still waiting on our software guy to get the info from the Volume License Portal, but I think we’re good after I plug it in. Question though: does the newest KMS server key allow for activations of Server 2016 & Office 2016, or will MS release those after the software’s release?

Comment on Microsoft & Bromium Make Windows 10 Most Secure Endpoint Available by Samir Farhat https://blog.workinghardinit.work/2015/07/20/microsoft-bromium-make-windows-10-most-secure-endpoint-available/#comment-1958 Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:08:18 +0000 https://blog.workinghardinit.work/?p=8258#comment-1958 They will interact like in a manner like app-v packages interact for example. But my concern is perf. I wish performances will not break out 5 or 10 %

(I was also using 2096 from day one, so not a memory issue for me). Thanks!

Comment on FREE WHITE PAPER: Configuring a VEEAM Off Host Backup Proxy Server for backing up a Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V cluster with a DELL Compellent SAN (Fiber Channel) by workinghardinit https://blog.workinghardinit.work/2014/05/04/free-white-paper-configuring-a-veeam-off-host-backup-proxy-server-for-backing-up-a-windows-server-2012-r2-hyper-v-cluster-with-a-dell-compellent-san-fiber-channel/#comment-1910 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 09:46:12 +0000 https://blog.workinghardinit.work/?p=6278#comment-1910 The best thing to do is reach out via the VEEAM forum http://forums.veeam.com/ & tech support. Their support is very good. Even for customers evaluating the product they provide great assistance and they have a lot more eyes & helping hands than a simple blog can provide.

We have two hyper-v clustered sharing a CSV on starwind. However, we managed to setup veeam for testing.

Tried to backup an online and offline virtual machine with no luck…

Error receiving:

unable to create snapshot (Microsoft Software Shadow copy provider 1.0; Microsoft CSV shadow copy provider) (mode: crash consistent) . details:
unknown status of async operation.
the shadow copy provider timed out while flushing data to the volume being shadow copied. this is probably due to excessive activity on the volume.
try again later when the volume is not being used so heavily. failed to create vss snapshot / failed to perform pre-backup tasks

Any hint or advice?

Since the new version of Windows server wont be out anytime soon, I was wondering how it would work.

Anyway, just yesterday, we saw (in VLSC) that we were already given Windows 10 KMS keys. One was called “Windows Srv 2012R2 DataCtr/Std KMS for Windows 10″. We installed it and were successful in activating both Win10 and 2012R2.
