Upgrade our Operating System from 2008 R2 to 2012 R2 for sharepoint 2010 and 2013, can it cause issues

We have 2 sharepoint on-premises farms 2010 & 2013,which have the following architecture:-

  • 2 SharePoint application servers (2010 & 2013) which are installed on Windows server 2008 R2
  • 2 SQl servers 2008 R2 installed on Windows server 2008 R2.

now since windows 2008 R2 will have its end of life on January 2020. so we are planning to upgrade the OS for the sharepoint application servers (2010 & 2013) and thier database server from windows 2008 R2 to windows 2012 or 2016 R2. but i am not sure if this will be a straight formawrdward task? or we need to reconfigure or re-install the sharepoint? our on-premises farms have site collections (mainly enterprise wiki + team site), sub-sites and some farm solutions for server-side event recievers.

so i am not sure if upgrading the OS will affect the 2 sharepoint on-premises farms (2010 & 2013) ? or things on paper should work well out of the box?

Question about adding SSD to my 2012 MBP (non-Retina)

I’m planning to add a 120 GB Kingston Hyper X Fury to my Non-Retina 2012 MacBook Pro. Currently I have Bootcamp and the HDD is split in two partitions for maxOS and Windows 10.

I’m planning to put the SSD in the ODD bay. From what I googled around, mac cannot boot from ODD.

I have two questions:

  1. Is this SSD compatible with my Mac?
  2. Is it possible to add the SSD to the ODD and install bootcamp from macOS and install Windows to SSD and then be able to boot Windows from it? (To clarify, macOS will remain on HDD intact and the installed Windows I already have on the other partition on the HDD)

Thanks.

WSUS 2012 – Update files not available

We have an WSUS server with a WSUS Downstream server.

The downstream server is triggering alerts related to some updates:

Content file download failed. Reason: HTTP status 404: The requested URL does not exist on the server. Source File: /Content/5F/2B7E085288178DA4905481C0C252754EB466195F.cab Destination File: e:\wsus\WsusContentFB7E085288178DA4905481C0C252754EB466195F.cab 
  1. When we check that specific KB (KB4503267) at the main WSUS server, and check for the file details, some of the related files do not, indeed, exist on the Wsuscontent folder (see screenshot):

enter image description here

  1. The Downstream server is pointing to a file location unrelated to the previous locations AND that does not exist:

/Content/5F/2B7E085288178DA4905481C0C252754EB466195F.cab

enter image description here

Any idea of what is happening?.

Thanks!

Mid 2012 MacBook pro, firmware lock

I was wondering if there was any way to remove a firmware password from a mid 2012 MacBook pro with USB or something. I just bought it off of Craigslist (sketchy i know but….) When it comes up all i get is a screen with blinking file with a “?” On it. And if i try and do recovery mode it goes to firmware lock, im wanting to get this unlocked and usable again but preferably without taking it halfway apart. Btw i have checked with Apple, unless i have the original proof of purchase (i don’t), then they can’t fix the issue for me. Any help is appreciated

Can’t ping the name of the server on Server 2012 R2

Since we do the updates, we found 1 server after reboot we are not be able to ping the NETBIOS (name) of the server from other devices BUT we could ping the IP Address of the server though ?!?!

We also found that when we go to Network (under Network and Sharing Center) and we could NOT find that server name. We could find any servers/desktops.

This network is pretty simple. It a Workgroup (not a DOMAIN) and the DNS on the device pointing to the router/firewall type device.

WINS are also turned on the server and any other devices.

It seem related on the network discovery issue. Any ideas?

Server 2012 R2 Essentials Activation

I’m trying to reinstall and activate Server Essentials 2012 R2 using an OEM key. Everything keeps saying to install the trial and then activate with my key using slmgr.vbs. Everything points back to this article: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/blainbar/2013/03/06/article-converting-evaluation-versions-of-windows-server-2012-to-full-licensed-versions-with-valid-product-keys/

And specifically the line that reads: For Windows Server 2012 Essentials: You can convert to the full retail version by entering a retail, volume license, or OEM key in the command slmgr.vbs.

If I run: slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

It errors out with this: 0xC004E016 The software licensing service reported that the product key is invalid.

I’ve found this over and over in forums but never a solution. Can anyone help with this?
