Regarding the OP’s problem, it appears the installer exe requires to use resources held by other processes. For me it was Skype and Logitech wireless mouse software.
To work out what is “blocking” the installer:
- start task manager, you’ll see setup.exe running as a background process but consuming no CPU cycles.
- click on the “Details” tab in task manager
- scroll down to setup.exe, right click on it and select “Analyse wait chain”
- close the program / end the process which setup is waiting on
You may have to repeat steps 3 & 4 if there are multiple contentions. For me once I killed Skype & Logitech processes the installer popped up instantly. Also I ran setup.exe as administrator
Well, first assuming, that the laptop has 2 NIC- one with an ethernet port for wired and the other- of course the Wifi ethernet (without this presume this content won’t exist otherwise 😉 )
Now, the next thing- either you get internet from the wired port or to be in some case, you may connect your android phone as wireless tethering and connect through mobile data service. Whatever the case- you basically got 2 interface for setting up the router- the WAN (either the wired or the mobile tethered connection) and the LAN- the wifi ethernet.
This document works good on Windows 7 and 8 (I didn’t test other editions of windows- hope they support too) Continue reading “Converting laptop into a wifi router” »
On server 2008, go to the Server manager, and Add/Remove Programs.
For my example, i already have file services installed on this server, if it’s not, install it as a role, and add this feature, “services for NFS” Continue reading “Mount NFS Partition from WIndows 2008 Server” »
Allow ICMP Through Firewall
Firstly you need to allow incoming ICMP ping request since this is the way Zenoss checks if the system is online.
Server Manager -> Configuration -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Inbound Rules
Do the following:
Enable rule “File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request – ICMPv4-In)”. Continue reading “Add windows client to zenoss monitoring” »
- Start Registry Editor.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
- On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal.
- Type the new port number, and then click OK.
- Quit Registry Editor.
- Restart the computer.
Note When you try to connect to this computer by using the Remote Desktop connection, you must type the new port. Maybe you have to set the firewall to allow the new port number before you connect to this computer by using the Remote Desktop connection.
Worked for Windows XP, Vista & 7 (didn’t tested on Server Edn. and Windows 8)
This repo can be used additionally to the squeeze-php54 repo of dotdeb.org.
Add the following into /etc/apt/sources.list

Please make sure before this installation, you will need 2 identical hard disk with same space connected to the server. But the truth is, you don’t need to same hard disk with the same space amount, but as long as you partitioned the space equally then it would be good as well. But for beginner, it is better to get a hard disk that got the same space quantity, less percentage that you would get yourself confused.
Below are the steps on how to enable the Software RAID inside Windows Server 2003:
1) You may follow the initial windows setup here:
2) After the installation has finished, click on Start button and right-click on My Computer. Select Manage and click on it:
3) Next is to select Disk Management:
Create a file named CSRParameters.inf on the C:\ drive using the contents below as a template (replace the single quotes with double quotes):
Subject="CN=mailgw.mango.com.bd,OU=IIG,O=Mango Teleservices Limited,S=Not Applicable,L=Dhaka,C=BD"
ProviderName="Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider"
Open a command prompt and type in:
C:\>certreq -new CSRParameters.inf CSROutput.pem
Open Windows Explorer and browse to the C drive to locate the CSROutput.pem file
Using the CSROutput.pem file, go back to the certificate authority and use the file to request your certificate
Many times I wanted to get rid of that annoying certificate warning message when I make a RDP connection to a RD Session Host server or a workstation. If you are using RDP inside an Active Directory network, the warning is gone, because the connection is using kerberos for security, but if you are connecting from outside to the inside, well…you will be prompted to accept the server certificate, and this is because the certificate is self signed and is not trusted. The following method works for clients OS (Win XP, Vista,7) too, not just for RD Session Host servers.
To install a trusted certificate I will use a script that I found on Microsoft technet. For this guide an Enterprise Internal CA will issue the certificates since is cheaper and much easy to work with, but if you have a lot of external clients a commercial certificate is recommended. To start we need to request and install a certificate on the local computer store on the RD Session Host server. For that open the Certificates Store console (Start > Run > mmc), select Certificates and click the Add button. On the wizard that just popped-up choose Computer Account > Local Computer.

I hear you…you want your SQL, DHCP, Hyper-V or other services to be highly available for your clients or your internal users. They can be if you create a Windows Failover Cluster and configure those services in the cluster. By doing that if one of the servers crashes the other(s) one will take over, and users will never even notice. There are two types of Failover Clusters: active/active and active/passive. In the first one (active/active) all the applications or services running on the cluster can access the same resources at the same time, and in the second one the applications or services running on the cluster can access resources only from one node, the other one(s) is/are in stand-by in case the active node is fails.
