There seems to be a difference for OEM vs SPLA with regards to the number of VMs you can run on Windows Server 2016 Standard when using SPLA licensing and I want to see if anyone else has noticed that. dan_j jessec: thanks for your help the other day. I reinstalled that VM and it's all working fine. dan_j jessec: fyi, it seems that SPLA licensing only allows one VM with the standard edition license, not two. I think it's OEM that allows two vms.

We need to host our Contacts which we are NOW having in a Shared Folder inside our Exchange and editing them with Outlook, in LDAP. The reason for that is our PBX need to access them, and the PBX is only to able to read LDAP Objects. HyP3r So my quetsion is: "Whats a good way to solve that?". In the best case all useers should be able to edit this catalog of contacts (with outlook) AND it should be stored inside a LDAP (Active Directory).

I'm trying to migrate an exchange server to a new server and I happen to notice that the previous exchange server had no limit on mailbox sizes but now I want to set a 4GB limit. However the first step is to get everyone's mailbox under 4GB. I have some users who are upwards to 10GB in mailbox size. I thought about doing the autoarchive function for emails older than 3 years but for some reason it seems maddawg2 odd that it only archived 124MB worth of emails maddawg2 that would mean this user i tested with 6GB mailbox increased the vast majority since 3 years ago maddawg2 is there a tool that I might be able to use that might give me a way to archive mailboxes based on mailbox size... like set a target size and have it archive messages until the mailbox is below the target size kuahara meh. minitool free partition wizard app kicked Windows' butt something diskmgmt.msc used to be able to do just fine.

TheRabbit and mailbox sizes are laughable CptLuxx lol 4gb CptLuxx naphtali has 99gb grrrrr 99 problems but... CptLuxx germans.. im going to install exchange next week for 5 users maddawg2 TheRabbit, sorry.. I used the command: Get-MailboxDatabase | Get-MailboxStatistics | Select-Object displayname,totalitemsize |Sort-Object totalitemsize -Descending | Format-Table -AutoSize | Out-File -PSPath C:\path\to_file.txt maddawg2 that lists the mailbox sizes of each mailbox maddawg2 but if i go and look at the mailbox size in the outlook client it shows a completely different size TheRabbit that's because Outlook reports OST size which doesn't match mailbox size maddawg2 so what is in the OST that's not in the mailbox? maddawg2 errr excuse me what's in the mailbox on exchange that isnt in the ost file rather CptLuxx white space? :x maddawg2 huh? TheRabbit Exchange and OST don't match size, I assume the file storage is different maddawg2 but some are like 5GB difference maddawg2 that seems very odd maddawg2 i think that'd make sense if the differences were much smaller but the differences are all over the map.. for example exchange reports a mailbox size of 7.5GB but in outlook the same mailbox shows as 3.2GB maddawg2 another was shown as 11GB but the actual size of the mailbox was 4GB maddawg2 (or in outlook it reported 4GB) CptLuxx you can configure how mutch months you want in outlook.. maddawg2 that's for cached exchange maddawg2 we're not using cached mode CptLuxx oh maddawg2 and that's also kept locally maddawg2 not on server CptLuxx but why? maddawg2 the issue is that the server is what's too large enabling cached exchange mode doesnt change the mailbox on the server side maddawg2 it only stores a local copy basically CptLuxx i mean more.. why cached mode? CptLuxx is there any good reason in 2017 for it? TheRabbit ? maddawg2 for cached exchange mode? maddawg2 like why would you use it? CptLuxx for non cached... TheRabbit any good reason for what? CptLuxx any reson not to use cached mode maddawg2 the main flaw i have with cached exchange mode is the fact that if i mark something as read on a mailbox that is shared on multiple user's outlooks (like our customer service mailbox) it doesnt always reflect read on the other clients maddawg2 but also address book changes or dist groups dont show with cached exchange mode if you make a change in the middle of the day maddawg2 you have to wait for the clients to resync maddawg2 but even then cached exchange isnt the reason why the mailboxes are smaller on the local client but much larger on the server maddawg2 the only thing i can think of is the retention time for recovered files and deleted items maddawg2 i think the server keeps them for some days after they are removed from the client side maddawg2 so i'd expect mailboxes to be larger, but not as large as they are reporting maddawg2 not with that much of a difference unless the retention time is insanely long naphtali Luxxi CptLuxx was up duded TheRabbit ACTION backs away TheRabbit I can't handle this naphtali Same ol same ol TheRabbit I'm afraid of whatever this is is contagious naphtali Don't give it to your MSP coworkers c0mrade If I want to upgrade my VM size let's say from A4 to D-Series of F-Series, what's the process of doing so? TheRabbit I think just cahnge it out and reboot? c0mrade That won't work since changing from one series to another doesn't support a simple resize operation like resizing from lets say A1 to A4. c0mrade The hardware cluster the VMs reside support only A-Series VMs. c0mrade You can resize from A0 to A4 lets say but not to D or F or other types. c0mrade The physical hardware hosting my VM should support other VM sizes and because the VM size is A4, there's no option to resize from the portal. CptLuxx open a ticket? TheRabbit Microsoft is going to say "What you see in the portal is what you get" TheRabbit so probably just new server, port applications, move on CptLuxx what you see is what you get?

CptLuxx i stay away from aconis shadowRAM any particular reason? CptLuxx lots of features.. none of them works right CptLuxx speaking of theire backup product c0mrade Now what's the process of doing so, I have a reserved IP attached to the VM instance and it has a persistence disk attached to it as well. I've done VM cloning once, but that was when I had to change the reserved IP and not the VM size, if I clone the VM would I be able to restore the cloned imaged to another larger VM size/type, I think no since the specs are different shadowRAM interesting, I've been testing out their patch management software, it seems to work pretty straight forward. shadowRAM Does 3rd party app patching, which is why we are looking into it.

Anyone have any hints? TheRabbit HyperV shared storage? khelpw Is that the same thing as the Virual SAN manager? TLoFP khelpw: network storage? khelpw this is strictly a test environment consisting of ONLY a single host. khelpw it's just an old hyper-V host that we decommed a while ago. khelpw but my initial thought was to use the 'storage' VM and a normal windows SMB file share as storage which didn't really seem possible. TLoFP khelpw: why not? khelpw I can't seem to find a way to add it under failover cluster management. khelpw does the storage need to be outside the cluster? khelpw I was trying to set up the storage VM as an iscsi target, but that seems impossible if it is part of a cluster khelpw I suppose I'll come back to it in the morning, it's quitting time.
