Folder C:\InetPub\LogFiles are filling up the C drive

The C drive of your Small Business Server 2008 or 2011 is filling rapidly and when you look with a disk analyzer tool like treesize or windirstat you see that the folder C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC and a 9 or 10 digit number is several or even dozens of GB. When you open one of the logfiles you see only lines with “POST /ApiRemoting30/WebService.asmx – 8530” in it. The log file directory belongs to the WSUS Administration IIS website, this is using port 8530. But it is not WSUS that is filling these logfiles rapidly but they are filled if you let the SBS console open. Beside closing the SBS console when not needed, there are 2 option to keep the log files under control. Option 1:
Open Administrative Tools – Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, browse through Sites and select the WSUS Administration site and open Logging. You have 2 options, first you can set the “maximum file size (in bytes):” option under Log file rollover to limit the maximum log file size.
Second option is to…

Finding users who have Send-As or Full Access permissions to mailboxes

The following one-liner lists all mailboxes where another user has Send-As permissions, and who that user is:
Get-Mailbox -Resultsize Unlimited | Get-ADPermission | ? {($_.ExtendedRights -like "*send-as*") -and -not ($_.User -like "nt authority\self")} | ft Identity, User -auto
And this one-liner displays all mailboxes where another user has Full Access permissions, and who that user is:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Get-MailboxPermission | ? {($_.AccessRights -match "FullAccess") -and -not ($_.User -like "NT AUTHORITY\SELF")} | ft Identity, User
Both of these one-liners are very useful to determine who has access to other people's mailboxes.

Error 2927 creating VM in VMM

Error (2927)
A Hardware Management error has occurred trying to contact server tools-hun-wsd.wsd.edu.
(Unknown error (0x8033811e))

Recommended Action
Check that WinRM is installed and running on server tools-hun-wsd.wsd.edu. For more information use the command "winrm helpmsg hresult".

I also ran the following
winrm helpmsg 0x8033811e
The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The WMI provider returned
an 'invalid parameter' error.

I've checked that winrm is installed and running on host servers as well as the VMM server.

For Hyper-V, you need to set up constrained delegation so the vm-host can access the necessary iso remotely. constrained delegation authorizes the proper impersonation required between the library server and the HYper-v host.

Constrained Delegation Checklist:
1. Verify that the VMM Server service (vmmservice.exe) is running under a domain account and not the LocalSystem account.
2. Open dsa.msc and connect to a Domain Controller
3. Loc…

Mac OS X Lion: create a bootable USB or DVD support with one click

A new open-source application called Lion DiskMaker will let you create that with just one click. Lion DiskMaker is a very simple to use and fast application. After launching the app, it will locate your Mac OS X Lion installer in the ~/Applications folder, or tries to find it usingSpotlight. Once located you can create your own bootable OS X Lion Installer on a DVD or on a USB key or SD-Card. Great tool, highly recommended. This is the developer’s site where you can find more info and the download link.

Konfiguration SCVMM 2008 R2's PRO Feature mit SCOM 2007 R2

Heute habe ich Unterstützung von einem Consultant von Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS). Sein Name ist Jörg Ostermann und er ist Spezialist im Bereich Virtualisierung und  Management u.a. mit den Produkten System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) und System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).
Nachdem ich den Aufbau einer Demoumgebung (http://blogs.technet.com/germanvirtualizationblog/archive/tags/Demoumgebung/default.aspx) mit Windows Server, Hyper-V, Clustering und dem SCVMM beschrieben habe geht es jetzt daran das Monitoring mit SCOM zu integrieren. Die eigentliche Installation des SCOM beschreibe ich an dieser Stelle noch nicht. Sollte ich entsprechendes Feedback bekommen, werde ich dies natürlich in der Demoumgebung nachholen.
Jetzt aber zum Artikel mit einer Step-by-Step Anleitung zur Konfiguration der Integration von SCVMM und SCOM und das Einschalten der PRO Funktionalität. Ein kurzer Satz zu PRO. PRO steht für Performance and Ressource Optimization (die deutsche Übersetz…

Step-by-step: Using the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target with Hyper-V (Standalone, Full, VHD)

In this post, I will show all the steps required to run Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V with the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target. We will cover the specific scenario of a standalone Windows Server 2008 server (as opposed to a clustered one) on a full install (as opposed to a core install) and using a VHD file (as opposed a pass-through disk).
In order to follow these instructions you will need at least two computers. One computer will run a full install of Windows Server 2008 with the Hyper-V role enabled. The other computer needs to be a Windows Storage Server (WSS) with the iSCSI pack or Windows Unified Data Storage Server (WUDSS). Optionally, you could add a Client for your Virtual Machine and a computer for remote Hyper-V Management.Configuring the Networks
For your server running Hyper-V, you should consider having at least three Network Interface Cards (NICs). One will be dedicated to iSCSI traffic. The second will be connected to the Virtual Switch and used for traffic going…
