Recently I had a project at a customer who had an Private cloud environment based on VMWare. This environment was running in a datacenter and we had no access to the Hypervisor. After installing a fresh Netscaler 12.0 VPX from the OVF template we encountered a strange phenomenon: the Netscaler was running fine but after a while all connections to the Netscaler where dropped and the Netscaler would not be reachable over the network We had to log on to the console to reboot the Netscaler. After the reboot it would work for a while but then it would stop functioning…

Most of you might already know of a little undocumented feature Microsoft implemented in Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1) called Godmode. with this feature you can unlock (and centralize) around 260 settings to change! Most fun part is that is centralizes al the features that are scattered around in the control panel, screen settings, task manager etc.! How to obtain Godmode you must create a new folder on the desktop and name it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} Godmode has arrived if you double click the folder you will find all the settings you can possibly imagine. have fun 🙂

I frequently get questions from people about problems with installing .NET 3.5 features on Windows Server 2012 and 2012R2. Most problems are solved when adding the sources directory from the Windows installation media (so mount the ISO) during the GUI installation. Another way to do it, is by using the following command: Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess This all works fine, but sometimes the .NET framework installation still fails. you keep getting the following error: 0x800f081f. The source files could not be found. Install Error! The cause for this error can be that you can’t install .NET Framework 3.5…

We recently had a customer where we implemented a Windows 2012R2, Citrix XenApp 7.5 environment to replace a Windows Vista/2008 client server environment. After implementing the new Citrix XenApp environment the customer found a strange phenomenon where several applications where performing slower on the new XenApp servers then on the Vista workstations. When we ran several tests on the environment and found that on a server with only the OS installed the applications worked fine. But after installing the terminal server environment and the applications the applications that where using FoxPro databases (e.g. Accountview, Caseware etc.) where running significantly slower andcrashing more often  than on the old Vista…
