I have a number of test platforms which I use, and last week I started one which had been offline for a number of months. It consists of two Hyper-V Virtual Machines, each running Windows Server 2012 R2. These servers are configured as ADDC in the same domain and the last time I used them all was working as expected. However, upon firing them up I noticed a few errors with Active Directory Replication, the problem? My Active Directory Domain Controllers were tombstoned.

If you’re anything like me, you have a considerable amount of downloaded content (music, tv shows, movies) stored away on a desktop PC.

However, in 2017 this ‘stuff’ needs to be accessible on all your devices.
This was an annoying little issue I came up against when trying to install .NET Framework 3.5 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machine.

2016 was the second full year for TechSupportPro | UK, and a very productive one it was. With a trip to Leeds, UK, I attended a Microsoft tech day, and got my first look at Windows Server 2016. I tested my first wearable device, a Microsoft Band 2 and I also got a first look at Windows 10 Mobile. 2016 was one to remember.
