Dave's Technophorical Times

A blog about Microsoft's Technologies!
SharePoint :: MVC :: ASP.NET :: IIS :: SQL Server :: Visual Studio :: MS Access

Symptoms


You may experience one of the following issues:
  • You can see the shared files but cannot open them.
  • When you open a shared file, the loading progress bar is displayed as zero percent.
  • When you open a shared file or a folder, Windows explorer freezes.
  • If you try to restart the Server service, the service freezes in the stopping state.
  • Microsoft Office Access databases (.mdb files) that are hosted on Windows Server 2012 shares may be corrupted.
  • A "file is locked by another user" or "is locked for editing" error occurs in Microsoft Excel.
  • SMB2 dialect negotiation receives only a TCP ACK response.

To work around these issues, follow these steps:

  1. Disable the leasing on the file server. To do this, run the following command:
    REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters /v DisableLeasing /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f 
    Note After you set this registry key, SMB2 leases are no longer granted, but oplocks are still available. This setting is primarily used for troubleshooting.
  2. Restart the file server, or restart the server service. To restart the service, run the following commands:
    NET STOP SERVER
    NET START SERVER

  



Some people recommend using ….control + alt + end on a RDP session to bring up that Windows Security screen, but it does NOT work on nested RDP sessions.

This procedure is the only one which worked for me on a Windows 2012 R2 RDP session:

  1. Click Start
  2. Type osk (to bring up the on screen keyboard)
  3. Hit enter
  4. Once the on screen keyboard is open, hold ctrl+Alt on your physical keyboard, then click on the del key in the on screen keyboard.
  5. Minimize the on screen Keyboard
  6. Click Change a password.

  



From here: http://devonenote.com/2013/09/how-to-find-startup-folder-in-windows-server-2012/

In Windows Server 2008 R2, to define an application to be startup automatically for current user, one common way is to create an application shortcut and add it to startup folder. In Windows Server 2012, you might find you can’t find this startup folder any more. 

Here is the steps to find startup folder in Windows Server 2012.

  1. WinKey + C to open the charms bar
  2. Click “Search”
  3. Enter shell:startup and click on the first result returned.
