Log into Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center portal – VLSC, and open the Relationship Summary page.
Select ‘Add Open License’ and enter the License & Authorization numbers that you would have received from your Microsoft licensing reseller. You’ll need to wait for the licensing request to be processed before proceeding.
After processing you should receive a product key for the purchased Azure credits. Go to the following url to add the credits – https://account.azure.com/Subscriptions
Click on ‘Click here to add credits’ and enter the product key.
If the product key is accepted confirmation will be displayed.
Our Remote Desktop connection settings are applied with Group Policies, and have previously worked with Vista, Windows 7 & 8 clients. On the rollout of Windows 10 we were unable to access these clients.
On checking Inboard Rules of a Windows 10 client ‘Remote Desktop (TCP-In)’ had been renamed to ‘Remote Desktop – User Mode (TCP-In)’
Changes were also noticed to the ‘Programs and Services’ tab.
I created a new group policy for testing where a changed ‘Programs and Services’ tab > Programs > ‘This program’ from ‘System’ to ‘%SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe’. I also added termservice to ‘Programs and Services’ tab > Services > ‘Apply to service with this short name’
I needed to create a High Sierra ISO for use with VirtualBox – which worked successfully.
The following method worked successfully on both Sierra and High Sierra systems.
The High Sierra installation files can be downloaded from the App Store when using a Mac or Hackintosh. I usually download a fresh copy of High Sierra after each update release from Apple.
Open Terminal with Spotlight, or by navigating to the Utilities | Applications folder and click the Terminal.app
Enter the following lines into Terminal to create the ISO for High Sierra.
hdiutil create -o /tmp/HighSierra.cdr -size 5300m -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J
hdiutil attach /tmp/HighSierra.cdr.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_build
mv /tmp/HighSierra.cdr.dmg ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg
hdiutil detach /Volumes/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra
hdiutil convert ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso
mv ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso
A usable ISO should be created if no errors are encountered.
To use these commands in a script file, I would suggest using the && operator to chain the commands together. When the && operator is used the next command is run if and only if the preceding command exited without errors.
hdiutil create -o /tmp/HighSierra.cdr -size 5300m -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J && hdiutil attach /tmp/HighSierra.cdr.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build && sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_build && mv /tmp/HighSierra.cdr.dmg ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg && hdiutil detach /Volumes/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra && hdiutil convert ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso && mv ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso
Open Terminal with Spotlight, or by navigating to the Utilities | Applications folder and clicking Terminal.app
Once Terminal is open, navigate to the location where the file is to be created. If you want to know your present location type the pwd command.
Create file with the touch command.
If you try to run the created script it will fail due inappropriate access privilages.
Use the chmod command to apply the appropriate access privilages.
chmod +x script.command
Use TextEdit to add the required commands to the file.
NOTE: If you need to run a command that requires root access, add the sudo prefix your command. When the script runs you’ll be requested to enter your admin password.
As part of our GDPR implementation we have decided to deny staff from logging onto student clients, and vice versa.
The required policies can be found in – Computer Configuration > Policies > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment.
The “Deny log on locally” specifies the users or groups that are not allowed to log into the local computer.
The Group Policy has been tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10 clients successfully.
Microsoft Word does not have a Shrink to Fit print option. Therefore, Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 does not have the Shrink to Fit functionality that is available in earlier Outlook versions.
As a work around open the email message in Outlook, click the Actions button, and then click Edit Message. Resize the large image before you print it.
Via the Office 365 Admin portal -> Exchange -> click on your picture in the top right corner -> select Another user -> select the mailbox -> under Options on the left hand side, go to Organize email -> Automatic replies.
Or if you prefer PowerShell, via the Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration cmdlet.
