Microsoft: Connection problems by opening iLO/iLO2 using Internet Explorer 8

November 17th, 2009 1 comment

Description:

When a remote connection is established with Integrated Lights-Out/Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO/iLO2) using Internet Explorer 8, the browser may stop responding due to Internet Explorer 8 security features. The issue occurs while connecting to the iLO webpage and starting IRC or another iLO/iLO2 remote console client.

Scope:

Any ProLiant server using Integrated Lights-Out/Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO/iLO2) and connecting to a Remote Client using Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.

Resolution:

As a workaround, the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name can be added to the Intranet Explorer 8 "Local Intranet" zone that lists Intranet websites.

Perform the following steps to add the DNS website name or IP address:

  1. In Internet Explorer 8 click on "Tools->Internet Options" and the Internet Options pop-up will be displayed.
  2. Click on the "Security" Tab.
  3. Select the "Local Intranet" icon and click on the "Sites" button to the right and the "Local Intranet" pop-up will be displayed.
  4. Click on "Advanced" and add the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name into the blank text box and add the website to the local Intranet zone.
  5. After adding the website, click on "Close" to save the website in the zone.

After adding the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name in the Internet Explorer 8 local Intranet zone, all iLO/iLO2 clients will connect as expected.

VM configuration:

I deployed two Windows 2003 SP2 Enterprise 32-Bit VM’s with both 12 GB of OS disks and two NIC’s. I called these: VMPROS-CL01 and VMPROS-CL02.

VMPROS-CL01 with ip: 172.16.254.78 and for MSCS nic ip: 1.0.0.1

VMPROS-CL01 with ip: 172.16.254.89 and for MSCS nic ip: 1.0.0.3

Microsoft: How to Migrate Printers from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008

November 2nd, 2009 1 comment

There are a lot of way’s to migrate printer from one server to another.

Within Windows 2008/vista/7 gives microsoft a standard tool for this option.

When you want to use this option you need to install the print server role.

After you done this you will be able to import and export printer’s.

An example:

Go to start -> administrative tools -> printer management.

Add the 2 servers (in my example vdc2 and vps1, vdc2 is a windows 2003 server and vps1 is a windows 2008 server)
Right click on “Print server” and choose “Add/Remove Servers”

Citrix: Citrix Print Management Service is missing

September 23rd, 2009 No comments

I was called yesterday that local printers and some network printers arn’t mapped in a user Citrix session. Normally you can choose and test with restarting from the Windows Print Spooler en Citrix Print Management Service but… there was no Citrix Print Management Service.

With CtxCpsvc10.exe you can Uninstall, Install the Citrix Print Management service and you can recreate the ctx_cpsvcuser user with the correct startup credentials in the service.

 

In my case I used: cpsvc.exe –install to install the Citrix Printer Service

Result: Citrix Printer Service installed.
