  1. I am wanting to set a custom Lync 2010 presence targeted at the logged in user. For instance Supervisors would get one set of custom presence's, and non-managers would get another set. I know the custom presences are limited to four, but the idea is there would still be two custom presence files, but the one actually used would depend on who logged in to the machine. I guess the idea would be to target a user groups vs actual users but in any case to not target the machine group(s) as is being done now (certain machine's now get certain custom presences, regardless of who is logged in but s
  2. Didn't see a Server 2012 topic area (other then unattended), so posting here. Server 2012 performing multiple roles, like DC, DHCP, DNS, IIS, WSUS (I know, not best practice but I expect to break this down three of four times before I get it all the way I want). This is running on Windows 8 Hyper-V. So essentially I cant get the Windows 7 client (another VM in Hyper-V) to see the internet via the Server 2012 machine that can see the internet (connected to a standard router at 192.x). The Windows 7 machine IS getting its IP (10.x) from the Server 2012 machine and both machine can ping each ot
  3. Both can ping the host successfully (get a reply). They can also ping their same default gateway (kinda goes without saying, but I said it anyway). You said my DNS setup is interesting, is there some other configuration I should try? The VM's themselves are set to "NAT" from the Virtual Box controls. If I choose "Bridged" I get a real public IP, if I set to "host only" I get a 192.x, if I set it to "Internal Network" I get a 169.x. The "Internal Network" is useless obviously, I set CL1 to bridged (giving it a public IP), but neither DC2 or the host could ping CL1. I am wondering
  4. I have two machines set up in Virtual Box. One is a W2K8R2 domain controller (DC2) one is a Windows 7 32 bit client (CL1). Both have internet access, but cannot ping each other. Settings below: DC1 Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : testdc2 Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : muppet.local Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : muppet.local Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description
  5. I'm using WSIM to created a unattended.xml and I have most of the settings I want. The problem is finding the GUID for a program or two that I want set in the PromotedIcon1 and PromotedIcon2 values. Microsoft's suggestion (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb773352.aspx) I think is useless. Short of taking a registry snapshot, installing the program, and then taking an after-shot and comparing does anyone know of anyway to find a programs GUID (and even with the regshot...I'm not sure). Anyway, any thoughts...need more info? StrayToasters
  6. The topic pretty much say it all. This is geared toward Win7, but would equally correspond to Vista I suppose. So far I cannot find any switches for wuapp. I have tried some of the previous switches like "wuapp /detectnow" and even ran a few suggested rundll32 cmds, but so far the only thing I can get Windows Update to do via command line is to bring up the GUI, then I still have to click "check for updates" for it to actually do anything. I guess what I am wanting to know is what process run that makes Windows Update run automatic updates (which can download and install critical updates),
  7. --Confession-- I did not see a Virtual PC forum (maybe I am just blind), so I posted here. I have tried various configuration regarding this type of setup, but so far I have not gotten it to work. I have Server 2003R2 and Vista SP1 and XP SP3 installed in VPC 2007. Vista and XP can ping the server, but the server cannot ping them, nor can they ping each other. I am really just wanting the VM's to see each other, internet access is not a required component for what I am wanting. I have tried various setups (too long to list here), so if someone has the magic config please post if for me. Th
  8. So I have a fresh build of Vista/w/SP1 and a bunch of programs installed. I have generic local profile that I copy over to the default profile. The machine is now joined to a domain. When some one logs in, they are validated by the domain, and a "local" profile is created for them, it has some settings from the local default account (Sidebar turned off, my computer on the desktop), but it seems that file associations are not copying over. For instance, Firefox is set as the default for HTM and HTML, on the default profile, but any domain user that logs in and clicks on a weblink gets promp
  9. Im getting errors when running WPI in Vista pre and post SP1. The WPI operates normally, but have to click through 2 or 3 "could not save config/useroptions/whatever.js". Right now I have a batch file on a remote server that copies the WPI program files to the local desktop before they are run. Because they will always reside in the same location, do you think I could avoid these errors by setting an Absolute path and if so, where would I set it (ex, C:\WPI\WPIScripts\config.js). If anyone can help / has a better idea, please let me know.
  10. I currently have a batch file on a server that transfers the WPI files to the local desktop before running (had some problems running from server). Once the files are copied to the desktop wpi.hta runs. All the install files for programs are located on a remote server, but the paths are correct and function normally. I only get this error message when running the WPI in Vista. The same error message is generated pre and post SP1. On a slightly odd note, if you click through the errors and close WPI then reopen it .. there are no error messages. I tried killing the UAC to see if that affec
  11. When running WPI in Vista SP1, I am getting a runtime error and 2 .js files throw errors. Once you close out of these errors WPI loads and is able to run somewhat normally. I have attached a pic of the error messages I am getting. Anyone have thoughts / suggestions? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v313/luc...ista_errors.jpg
  12. I can add text to a text file via batch with: echo this is a new line>>filename.txt What I want to do is put the new line at the beginning or somewhere in between. The "somewhere in between" is a static blank line so it would appear at the same place in every file I want to change. Any thoughts? Straytoasters
  13. Can anyone tell me what nLite does that is radically different then HFSLIP when adding in drivers (SATA specifically). If I add the SATA drivers via the HFEXPERT\DRIVERCAB or $OEM$ method I get the error 0x00000007b (0xf78d2524, 0xc0000034, 0000000, 0000000), just as the machine is starting the actual install (just after all the files are copied over from CD/DVD). The same drivers DO work if I add them in via nLite (using the same HFSLIP-ed sourcess as my source). I am going to go back and try the experiments again, but if anyone has encountered this and can tell me what I am doing wrong ple
  14. Ok, this started in nLite 1.4.x. I probably did choose a prior source the first time this happened, but I have since... Changed the name of the source (but not the source)--no luck Used a new source--no luck Changed nLite (1.4.x to 1.4.5 Final)--still no change Deleted several nLite .ini files (figure nLite would recreate them but they would be "virgin"...and it did)--still no change Did a remove of nLite (did not remove 1.4.x to install 1.4.5 final the first time), and did reboot (sure somebody would ask) then installed 1.4.5 final--still no change I did not go through the registry and rem
  15. Sorry. If they have nothing in that row, then they are skipped altoghther. If they have something in the row then at the column where they have their first "marker" what I want to display is the time at the top of that column. In a nutshell I want Excel to spit out a list of all the start times for each person. Straytoasters
