PSA: RAM Disks are amazing.
So, I've just discovered something which I haven't really thought of before-- RAM disks.
Pretty self explanatory, a disk which uses RAM.
Obviously SSDs are fast but HOLY FUCK THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!
IT IS INSTANT-FUCKING-TANIOUS.
Imagine an SSD stuffed with caffeine and then given steroids. It is wonderful.
If you spare RAM I must recommend you at least try it:
I'm a fool.
Trying to delete local version of domain account:
Supposed to use command:
net user [username] /delete
net user "domain\user" /delete
Didn't work, came up with help which said an option was net user [/delete] [/domain]
So I decided to try:
net user "user" /delete /domain
... "The request will be processed at a domain controller for domain domain.local.
The command completed successfully."
So now the user's account has been deleted on AD, trying to restore it but AD management tools aren't picking up AD's object so I can't find the tombstone.
TL;DR: I've fucked a user's account and can't find what I need to fix it.
Moral: Don't be a fool like me.6
I've just realised the dual monitor computer option (for Dev Avatar) has no computer, it's just two monitors.8
Given the interest in @MrMarlin's post yesterday I decided it would be fun to make a binary clock.
Here you go:
So.. I'm migrating a physical server to a virtual (Hyper-V) one.
The physical server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS6 and Windows SQL Server 2012.
I've set up a VM with Windows Server 2016, IIS10 and Windows SQL Server 2017.
I'm testing with just moving 1 db at a time (we have about 20, 1 per client running this software and a few others) and I've already imported all of the IIS sites.
So the database import and IIS import went smoothly and was surprisingly without hassle but now I'm trying to run the website that I imported the database for and it is throwing 503 Errors at me.
I've been trying to find out the cause but for some reason IIS isn't making any logs.
It's not any 64/32bit system problems (they're both x64) and I can't seem to find anything wrong with the imported config.
Anyone got any ideas?18
