Shuffling data round server drives is one of those tasks that really scares the hell out of me. The thought of trashing gigs and gigs of incredibly important information does not sit well with me. The guide below will hopefully help you to not fall for some of the pitfalls I have succumb to in my experience.
Sending a user to a 'splash' page the first time they visit your site seems like a pretty simple task, but its not. At first glance I thought it would easily work a bit like this:
From time to time it becomes necessary to regenerate temporary terminal server licenses. Whether it be a genuine error which is preventing you from using temporary licenses or the fact that someone "forgot" to purchase TSCALS within the grace period allowed by Microsoft.
Situation: I have to remote support a lot of different users at different companies, not a problem when they're in their offices, I VPN in then use VNC in a pretty standard way. The difficulty arises when they are out on the road, at home or somewhere with an internet connection but no vpn setup
Recursion. It can be a bit to get your head around at first but it can often create a lightweight, robust and elegant solution.
I recently came across this problem for a network we provide support for at work, there were not that many solutions for it out there on the world wide web as far as I could see so I thought I would write up what I found:
Password prompt keeps popping up even though the password is saved on the system. Real pig of a problem, Outlook 2002 had same issue but Microsoft fixed, however, when 2003 came out the same issue arose again (possibly only in xp I don't know). A few solutions online including this one and this one recommend messing around with registry keys but personally I am loathe to messing around with registry keys especially on remote desktops for clients when I am connecting on a slow vnc connection.
