SysUpTime Network Monitor

Current Version: 6.1 (build 6204)

SysUpTime network/server monitor is a powerful agentless network management software. It provides users out-of-box capabilities to efficiently and proactively manage any network of any size.

SysUpTime network monitor is easy to set up and use. It can monitor the availability and performance of your Windows and Linux/UNIX servers, workstations, software applications (SQL, Exchange, Web Servers, etc), and network devices (routers, switches, etc). When a failure is detected, SysUpTime network monitor can alert the administrators by email, sound, running a script or other methods, as well as taking corrective actions such as executing remote Windows/Linux command, rebooting the machine, restarting the Windows/Linux service or running a script.

SysUpTime network monitor’s server runs on both Windows and Linux.

Key Features:

Automatic Network Discovery and Accurate Topology Map

Automatically discovers layer 1, 2 and 3 networks, gathering topology data to deliver complete and accurate maps of devices and connectivity across networks. Powerful map editing function allows user to add or change discovered map easily.

The combination of unique extensible mediation layer technology and CIM (Common Information Model) based object model enables SysUpTime network monitor to support new devices and applications on an ongoing basis with minimum efforts.

Major features of network discovery and topology maps:

  • Support for a wide range of network devices and new devices can be easily added.
  • Configurable filters to narrow down the scope of discovery.
  • SNMP v1/v2c/v3 discovery.
  • Scheduled discovery.
  • Support for VLAN, HSRP, VRRP.
  • Custom views, which are user-defined maps based on IP address, location or other selection criteria.
  • Automatically discovered topology maps contain properties of network devices such as servers, routers, etc. Device list can be exported to a CSV file.
  • Devices can be manually added to topology map.
  • New properties or notes, such as license info, installed software, purchase price, can be manually added to devices. You can do search to find device with certain property.

  • TCP/UDP port monitor
  • URL (HTTP/HTTPS) monitor
  • Telnet/SSH-2 monitor
  • FTP/File/Directory monitor
  • DNS/LDAP/RADIUS server monitor
  • Windows Event Log monitor
  • SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 server monitor
  • Database SQL monitor for all major database servers

More network/server monitoring capabilities are scheduled to be added soon.

  • Self-learning Dynamic Statistical Baseline (based on historical data)
  • Multi-level Fixed Thresholds

Real-time, End-to-End Event Management

SysUpTime network monitor collects and consolidates events and alarms. Event de-duplication, event auto-clearing, robust alerting, automated actions, and alarm escalation help organizations identify potential problems faster, shorten mean-time-to-repair and reduce IT and operations costs.

Core capabilities of event management include:

  • Supports SNMP v1/v2c/v3 traps and informs
  • Event reduction
  • Event clearing
  • Alarm escalation
  • Event forwarding
  • Event categorization

SysUpTime network monitor offers a wide range of alerting actions. Major actions include:

  • Send to different email accounts at different time.
  • Forward to another trap receiver.
  • Post to a web site using GET or POST methods.
  • Run remote command via SSH, Telnet or Windows RPC.
  • Run command.
  • Play sound.
  • Built-in Reporting and Graphing

    SysUpTime network monitor offers real-time and historical reporting and graphing capabilities for performance monitors, and top-N reports for users to identify problem elements. Scheduled reports in PDF format can be generated by month, week or day.

    Application monitoring helps you diagnose application problems, and prevent downtime or network performance degradation. SysUpTime network monitor provides out-of-box support for MS Exchange Server and SQL server. It can be configured to monitor critical parameters of both servers and their services.

    High Availability and Scalability

    SysUpTime’s server clustering technology allows two or more servers that are interconnected to form a unified virtual computing resource.

    Clustering servers increases the availability of a system by ensuring that if a server becomes unavailable because of failure or planned downtime, another server in the cluster can assume the workload, ensuring that the monitoring service is uninterrupted. Clustering also enhances scalability by automatically distributing workloads across all the available servers.

  • Key Benefits

    • Intuitive graphical user interface minimizes training requirements and increases productivity
    • Advanced fault management minimizes equipment downtime
    • Measure and report real time performance against designated SLA
    • Preempt performance problems by identifying potential trouble spots before they affect service quality
    • Increased operational efficiency
    • Use trending data to make the most of network resources and forecast CapEx needs
    • Protect existing investments — can be integrated with existing management systems
    • Implement high-quality management capabilities priced to suit enterprise IT budgets

    Professional and free personal editions

    The free personal edition is intended exclusively for private use on a single workstation. You may copy the complete program package and pass it on to others for private use only. The free personal edition may not be used for commercial or professional purposes.

    Data backup types explained: Full, incremental, differential and incremental-forever backup

    What you will learn in this tip:Learn about full backups, incremental and differential backups, and newer types of backups like synthetic and incremental-forever backups. You will also learn how to choose the best data backup type for your organization’s data.

    Download this free guide

    FAQs: Data backup and archiving

    What’s the difference between data backups and archives? Can tapes be used for archives? Should I use disk for archives? In this free guide, the experts from SearchDataBackup.com answer these common, but nevertheless important questions to help you construct the right data protection strategy for your organization.

    By submitting your personal information, you agree that TechTarget and its partners may contact you regarding relevant content, products and special offers.

    You also agree that your personal information may be transferred and processed in the United States, and that you have read and agree to the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy .

    For quite some time, there have been three basic types of backups: full, incremental and differential. More recently though, data backup software vendors have introduced some newer types of backups that you might not be familiar with. Before I do though, I am going to give you a quick crash course in full, incremental and differential backups.

    A full backup is exactly what the name implies. It is a full copy of your entire data set. Although full backups arguably provide the best protection, most organizations only use them on a periodic basis because they are time consuming, and often require a large number of tapes or disk.

    Because full backups are so time consuming, incremental backups were introduced as a way of decreasing the amount of time that it takes to do a backup. Incremental backups only backup the data that has changed since the previous backup.

    For example, suppose that you created a full backup on Monday, and used incremental backups for the rest of the week. Tuesday’s backup would only contain the data that has changed since Monday. Wednesday’s backup would only contain the data that has changed since Tuesday.

    The primary disadvantage to incremental backups is that they can be time-consuming to restore. Going back to my previous example, suppose that you wanted to restore the backup from Wednesday. To do so, you would have to first restore Monday’s full backup. After that, you would have to restore Tuesday’s tape, followed by Wednesday’s. If any of the tapes happen to be missing or damaged, then you will not be able to perform the full restoration.

    A differential backup is similar to an incremental backup in that it starts with a full backup, and subsequent backups only contain data that has changed. The difference is that while an incremental backup only includes the data that has changed since the previous backup, a differential backup contains all of the data that has changed since the last full backup.

    Suppose for example that you wanted to create a full backup on Monday and differential backups for the rest of the week. Tuesday’s backup would contain all of the data that has changed since Monday. It would therefore be identical to an incremental backup at this point. On Wednesday, however, the differential backup would backup any data that had changed since Monday.

    The advantage that differential backups have over incremental is shorter restore times. Restoring a differential backup never requires more than two tape sets. Incremental backups on the other hand, may require a great number of tape sets. Of course the tradeoff is that as time progresses, a differential backup tape can grow to contain much more data than an incremental backup tape.

    Synthetic full backup

    A synthetic full backup is a variation of an incremental backup. Like any other incremental backup, the actual backup process involves taking a full backup, followed by a series of incremental backups. But synthetic backups take things one step further.

    What makes a synthetic backup different from an incremental backup is that the backup server actually produces full backups. It does this by combining the existing full backup with the data from the incremental backups. The end result is a full backup that is indistinguishable from a full backup that has been created in the traditional way.

    As you can imagine, the primary advantage to synthetic full backups is greatly reduced restore times. Restoring a synthetic full backup doesn’t require the backup operator to restore multiple tape sets as an incremental backup does. Synthetic full backups provide all of the advantages of a true full backup, but offer the decreased backup times and decrease bandwidth usage of an incremental backup.

    Incremental-forever backups are often used by disk-to-disk-to-tape backup systems. The basic idea is that like an incremental backup, and incremental-forever backup begins by taking a full backup of the data set. After that point, only incremental backups are taken.

    What makes an incremental-forever backup different from a normal incremental backup is the availability of data. As you will recall, restoring an incremental backup requires the tape containing the full backup, and every subsequent backup up to the backup that you want to restore. While this is also true for an incremental-forever backup, the backup server typically stores all of the backup sets on either a large disk array or in a tape library. It automates the restoration process so that you don’t have to figure out which tape sets need to be restored. In essence, the process of restoring the incremental data becomes completely transparent and mimics the process of restoring a full backup.

    What backup type is best for you?

    As with any backup, it is important to consider which backup type is best suited to your own organization’s needs. Ask yourself the following questions:

    1. What does your service-level agreement dictate in regard to recovery time?
    2. What are the policies regarding storing backup tapes offsite? If backups are shipped offsite, incremental backups are a bad idea because you have to get all the tapes back before you can begin a restoration.
    3. What types of backups does your backup application support?

    As you can see, synthetic full backups and incremental-forever backups go a long way toward modernizing the backup process, but it’s important to make sure you choose the best backup type for your organization’s data.

    Corporate e-mail in the cloud: Google vs. Microsoft

    E-mail is the third rail of enterprise IT operations. You can mess up elsewhere, but bring down people’s e-mail and you’ll start getting irate calls literally in seconds.

    Manesh Patel knows those risks well, but that didn’t stop the senior vice president and CIO at Sanmina-SCI Corp. from stepping off the Microsoft Outlook/Exchange platform and moving the company’s 16,000 users into Google ‘s cloud — thereby running the risk of interrupting users’ e-mail, even if just temporarily, in the process. The cost savings were simply too good to pass up.

    Two years ago, the San Jose-based contract manufacturer relied on stable, up-to-date versions of Microsoft Corp.’s Outlook and Exchange Server to handle its e-mail needs. Then, after a lengthy analysis and pilot, Sanmina-SCI shut down its 100 Exchange servers, traded Outlook for a browser as the primary e-mail client and migrated all of its e-mail users worldwide onto Google Apps for Business suite. This cloud-based service now delivers Google Inc.’s Gmail e-mail offering, plus calendaring and contact management services to Sanmina-SCI’s workers.

    Side-by-side comparison

    Exchange Online Standard vs.

    Google Apps for Business

    Microsoft Exchange Online Standard

    Pricing: $5 per seat per month ($60 per year); $2 per user per month for Exchange Online Deskless Workers .

    Components: E-mail, contacts, calendar and instant messaging. SharePoint, Office Live and Office Online are available as extra costs as part of Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Standard Suite.

    Maximum users supported: 30,000; larger deployments must be approved by Microsoft engineers.

    Product update cycle: Every 45 days.

    Mailbox size: 25GB (maximum without having to pay more)

    Compatibility with Outlook client: Full

    Google Apps for Business Premier Edition

    Pricing: $4.17 per seat per month ($50 per year).

    Components: Gmail for Business, Google Docs, Calendar, Groups, Sites and Video, and chat and instant messaging tools.

    Maximum seats supported: No limit

    Product update cycle: Continuous

    Mailbox size: 25GB (maximum without having to pay more)

    Compatibility with Outlook Client: Limited

    Guaranteed uptime: 99.9% ; Google claims it averages less than 15 minutes of downtime per month.

    The company completed the project last December.

    Why fix something that wasn’t broken? “A lot of people thought I was crazy,” Patel admits, but the operational cost savings were just too big to ignore. By moving from an on-premises Exchange architecture to Google Apps for Business Premier Edition, Patel cut costs by more than $1.9 million a year.

    Now that its suite of tools has established a foothold among consumers, educational institutions and small businesses, Google is focusing on large businesses — and it’s targeting Exchange users in particular. Google claims to have 2 million business user accounts. There’s no data available on how many of those customers, if any, switched to Google Apps from Exchange, but the general belief is that most probably are small and midsize business users who may not have come from an Exchange environment.

    To attract even larger business accounts, Google has received SAS 70 Type II certification and now offers — either directly or through partners — a range of enterprise-friendly options, including tools for automating Exchange migration. integration with LDAP and Active Directory, and add-ons such as support for BlackBerry users and Postini services for content filtering and message archiving.

    Continuing coverage

    Another feature, one recently incorporated from the company’s testing lab, allows for delegation, where an executive can give an administrator control over his messages, much like Exchange already offers.

    Monitoring Exchange 2013 with SCOM 2012 (Part 2) #exchange #server #monitoring

    #

    Monitoring Exchange 2013 with SCOM 2012 (Part 2)

    Table 1: List of servers

    Exchange 2013 Management Pack Pre-requisites and Considerations

    Before importing the Exchange 2013 MP into System Center Operations Manager, there are some pre-requisites that have to be met:

    You have one of the following versions of System Center Operations Manager deployed in your organization:

    • System Center Operations Manager 2012 RTM or later
    • System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 or later
  • You have already deployed SCOM agents to your Exchange Servers.

    The SCOM agents on your Exchange Servers are running under the local system account.

    The SCOM agents on your Exchange Servers are configured to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computers.

    If you are monitoring Exchange Server 2013 Database Availability Groups (DAGs), ensure that all DAG members are monitored by Operations Manager.

    Before downloading and installing the Exchange Server 2013 MP, you might want to import some recommended additional management packs, such as (these are the ones I used):

    Add the Exchange servers as agent managed computers

    Adding the Exchange servers to monitor as agent managed computers is the first required step.

    1. Click the Administration tab and then click Configure computers and devices to manage on the Actions pane. This will start the Computer and Device Management Wizard (Figure 2). Click Next. choose Advanced Discovery (Figure 3) and select Servers Only from the Computers and Device Classes drop-down box.
    1. On the next window, browse for the computers you are adding (Figure 4) and click Next. Select Use selected Management Server Action Account (Figure 5), click Discover and wait for the discovery results (Figure 6). Figure 7 shows a brief summary that is displayed at the end of the wizard. It is mandatory that all systems running Exchange Server 2013 that are managed by Operations Manager use Local System as the Agent Action Account. Click Finish .
    1. If the agent installation was successful, on each Exchange server you ll be able to see the System Center 2012 Operations Manager Agent listed on the Programs and Features on Windows 2012 (Figure 8). A new service is also created, the System Center Management Service. as depicted in Figure 9.
    1. To enable Agent Proxy configuration on all managed Exchange servers, in the Administration pane, under Administration. Device Management. Agent Managed. right-click on each Exchange server (Figure 10), select Properties. then the Security tab (Figure 11), and check the box Allow this agent to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computers. This step will also make exchange cluster instances to appear in the Agentless Managed section (ensure that all physical nodes of the cluster are monitored). Repeat the process for every managed Exchange 2013 server in the list

    Create a new management pack for customizations

    The customizations and overrides of sealed management packs, such as the Exchange 2013 MP, are usually saved in the default management pack. As a best practice you should create and use an unsealed management pack for each sealed management pack that you want to override, as shown in Figure 12.

    Figure 12: Unsealed management packs

    Creating a new management pack for storing overrides has the following advantages:

    • It simplifies the process of exporting customizations that were created in your test and pre-production environments to your production environment.
    • It allows you to delete the original management pack without first needing to delete the default management pack.
    • It is easier to track and update customizations to individual management packs.
    1. In the Operations Console, click the Administration button. In the Administration pane, right-click Management Packs and then click Create Management Pack. The Create a Management Pack wizard displays.
    2. In the General Properties page (Figure 13), type a name for the management pack in Name. the correct version number in Version. and a short description in Description. Click Next and then Create .

    Install the Exchange Server 2013 MP

    With the recommended additional management packs already imported, download and install the latest Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Management Pack (at the time of the writing of this article it was version 15.00.0620.018). You can find the latest Management Packs at the Microsoft System Center Marketplace .

    Let s look at the installation steps of the Exchange 2013 Management Pack:

    1. Download the management pack file and launch the Microsoft Installer (MSI) package on the selected SCOM server. Accept the license agreement, and click Next (Figure 14).
    1. Accept the default installation folder or select a new one. Click Next (Figure 15). The extraction process begins.
    1. When the extraction ends, click Close (Figure 16). When the installation is complete, the management pack files are copied to the System Center Management Packs folder.
    1. To import the Exchange 2013 MP, open the SCOM 2012 Operations Console. Click the Administration tab, right-click the Management Packs node and then click Import Management Packs (Figure 17).
    2. Click Add. Add from disk and then click No on the Online Catalog Connection window. Select all the files from the Exchange MP directory, by default C:\Program Files\System Center Management Packs (Figure 18), click Open and then click the Install button (Figure 19).
    1. The Import Management Packs page appears and shows the progress for each management pack. After the import process is complete and the dialog box displays an icon next to each Management Pack that indicates success of the importation (Figure 20), click the Close button. Click View and then Refresh. or press F5, to see the Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 management pack in the list of Management Packs.

    After importing the Exchange 2013 MP, it will start immediately discovering Exchange machines. So, if you browse to the Discovered Inventory pane on the Operations Console (Figure 21), all the Exchange 2013 servers should be listed. Notice that the Database Availability Group (DAG) is also listed, although its state is Not monitored. This is a normal behavior, since the physical nodes of the DAG are already being monitored.

    The Exchange 2013 MP adds 3 views to the Monitoring pane (Figure 22):

    • Active Alerts
    • Organization Health
    • Server Health

    Treasury Reporting Rates of Exchange

    Please Note. The Bureau of the Fiscal Service provides current and historical exchange rate information. We cannot provide advice on, or assistance with, investing in foreign currencies.

    Report Description:

    This report provides exchange rate information under Section 613 of Public Law 87-195 dated September 4, 1961 (22 USC 2363 (b)) which gives the Secretary of the Treasury sole authority to establish the exchange rates for all foreign currencies or credits reported by all agencies of the government.

    The primary purpose is to ensure that foreign currency reports prepared by agencies are consistent with regularly published Treasury foreign currency reports regarding amounts stated in foreign currency units and U.S. dollar equivalents.

    This covers all foreign currencies in which the U.S. government has an interest, including:

    • receipts and disbursements,
    • accrued revenues and expenditures,
    • authorizations,
    • obligations,
    • receivables and payables,
    • refunds, and
    • similar reverse transaction items.

    Exceptions to using the reporting rates as shown in the report are:

    • collections and refunds to be valued at specified rates set by international agreements,
    • conversions of one foreign currency into another,
    • foreign currencies sold for dollars, and
    • other types of transactions affecting dollar appropriations. (See Volume I Treasury Financial Manual 2-3200 for further details.)

    This quarterly report reflects exchange rates at which the U.S. government can acquire foreign currencies for official expenditures as reported by disbursing officers for each post on the last business day of the month prior to the date of the published report.

    Example: The quarterly report as of December 31 will reflect exchange rates reported by disbursing officers as of November 30. If current rates deviate from the rates in this report by 10 percent or more, Treasury will issue amendments to this quarterly report. Amendments will also be issued to reflect the establishment of new foreign currencies.

    To ensure all reports are translated at uniform exchange rates, all U.S. government agencies should use these rates, except as noted above, to convert foreign currency balances and reported transactions to U.S. dollar equivalents as of the date of this report and for the ensuing three months.

    Since the exchange rates in this report are not current rates of exchange, they should not be used to value transactions affecting dollar appropriations.

    The rates of exchange for June 30, 2017 are now posted

    Our Mission.

    The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

    • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
    • Professional development and training for faculty
    • Expertise and experience
    • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

    As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

    What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

    Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

    Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

    Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

    In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

    Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

    Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

    Where Do I Start?

    Backup Exec Exceptions failed to snap Exchange Server (GRT)

    Most of the task you have already performed, give a try to more.

    Make sure that Backup Exec Server has been fully patched by running liveupdate

    Make sure that the Remote Agent on the Virtual Machine is at the latest version by push installing ir from Backup Exec Server then try to reboot that VM.

    You may also try bu disabling GPT and check if that works ?

    Finally you can try by RAWS backup of the machine through Windows selection to see if it succeeds or it fails on exchange data.

    you should also have a close eye on any backup error either in application or system logs, you should get any clue over there.

    Also just try to edit network option, in that you can check option Allow use of any interface and give a try.

    Also may be you can try to change Logon Account.

    Lastly i would suggest you can check this Symanted hotfix

    Many thanks for the suggestions.

    I have fully updated the Backup Exec Server, and pushed the agents out/rebooted.

    If I disable GRT on these backups, will I still be able to restore individual emails?

    How do I go about a RAWS backup of the machine without using Backup Exec?

    I checked the network interface and allow use of any is selected, if the above fail I will try change the logon account – can this be done for a specific server/VM or do you have to change it for the whole selection list?

    Many Thanks,
    Kevin

    Overall: Level 9

    Storage Software 1

    You should be able to Use Backup Exec Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) to enable the restore of individual files and folders from virtual machines, unless you are using GPT or Dynamic Disks within the VM. This is not supported.

    Backup Exec does not support GRT Backups/Restores of Virtual Machines configured to use virtual disk with GPT.

    you may go through below Article

    To do application GRT backups you will also need the correct licenses for the application backup.

    Finally you can also try with that hotfix what i have provide in previous comment.

    please make sure the backup account has the following rights on all machines to be backed up

    Act as part of the operating system
    Create a token object.
    Back up files and directories.
    Restore files and directories.
    Managed auditing and security log.
    Logon as a batch job (only for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 2008).

    Move the mailbox database path for a mailbox database copy #move

    #

    Move the mailbox database path for a mailbox database copy

    Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

    Summary: When moving a mailbox database that has been copied to at least one other location, follow the procedures in this topic to move the path for the copy.

    If the mailbox database being moved is replicated to one or more mailbox database copies, you must follow the procedure in this topic to move the mailbox database path. All copies of a mailbox database must be located in the same path on each server that hosts a copy. For example, if database DB1 is located at C:\mountpoints\DB1 on server EX1, copies of DB1 on servers EX2, EX3, and so on, must also be located at C:\mountpoints\DB1.

    After you create a new mailbox database, you can move it to another volume, folder, location, or path by using either the EAC or the Shell. For step-by-step instructions about how to move the database path for a non-replicated mailbox database, see Manage mailbox databases in Exchange 2016.

    Looking for other management tasks related to mailbox database copies? Check out Managing mailbox database copies .

    Estimated time to complete this task: 2 minutes, plus the time to move the data, which depends on a variety of factors, such as the size of the database, the speed, available bandwidth and latency of the network, and storage speeds.

    You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the “Mailbox database copies” entry in the High availability and site resilience permissions topic.

    To perform the move operation, the database must be temporarily dismounted, making it inaccessible to all users. If the database is currently dismounted, it isn’t remounted upon completion.

    To perform the move operation, replication for the database must be disabled for all copies. It’s not enough to suspend replication; you must disable it by using the Remove-MailboxDatabaseCopy cmdlet to remove the database copies.

    For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard shortcuts in the Exchange admin center .

    Remove all mailbox database copies for the database being moved. For detailed steps, see Remove a mailbox database copy. After all copies are removed, preserve the database and transaction log files from each server from which the database copy is being removed by moving them to another location. These files are being preserved so the database copies don’t require re-seeding after they have been re-added.

    Move the mailbox database path to the new location. For detailed steps, see Move a mailbox database path .

    During the move operation, the database being moved must be dismounted. Until the move is complete, this process will cause an interruption in service and an outage for all users with mailboxes on the database being moved. After the move operation completes, the database is automatically mounted.

    Create the necessary folder structure on each Mailbox server that previously contained a passive copy of the moved mailbox database. For example, if you moved the database to C:\mountpoints\DB1, you must create this same path on each Mailbox server that will host a mailbox database copy.

    After creating the folder structure, move the passive copy of the mailbox database and its log stream to the new location. These are the files that were left from and preserved after Step 3. Repeat this process for each database copy that was removed in Step 3.

    Add all of the database copies that were removed in Step 3. For detailed steps, see Add a mailbox database copy .

    On each server that contains a copy of the mailbox database being moved, run the following commands to stop and restart the content index services.

    The big Exchange 2013 public folders question: migrate or remove? #migrate

    #

    The big Exchange 2013 public folders question: migrate or remove?

    Microsoft introduced public folder technology in its early versions of Exchange to provide users with an easy and effective way to collect, organize, and share information with other people. Legacy Exchange public folders use a multi-master model with folder hierarchy and referral techniques that are not terribly efficient but produce a great, simple user experience that couldn’t be better integrated. Exchange 2013 retains the usability and improves the back-end by moving public folders to mailbox databases that can reside in highly available Database Availability Groups (DAGs).

    Beginning with Exchange 2007, Microsoft started trying with mixed success to move customers from Exchange public folders to SharePoint for collaborative group workspaces. Some companies that started using public folders loved them and invested a lot of business processes in that technology; other organizations just never created any public folders and simply don’t use the feature. Most Exchange organizations have some public folders with varying rates of usage. Figure A shows a typical public folder view from an Outlook client.

    Public folders in Exchange 2013

    If your organization is upgrading to Exchange 2013 from earlier versions or migrating from on-premise Exchange to Exchange Online (Office 365), you must make a decision about public folders: migrate or remove. Public folder functionality exists in Exchange 2013 for Outlook integration, simple sharing scenarios, and allowing large audiences to access the same data. However, architecture changes in how public folders work means that previous versions of public folders can’t be directly upgraded in Exchange 2013. In fact, you can’t upgrade an Exchange 2007 or 2010 organization to Exchange 2013 unless you remove the public folders first.

    Since Exchange 2013 public folders and legacy public folders can’t exist in the same Exchange organization simultaneously, there’s no coexistence between versions. Migrating public folders to Exchange Server 2013 or Exchange Online is currently a one-time cutover process.

    Migrate public folders to Exchange 2013 or Exchange Online from previous versions

    If you must retain public folder functionality in your Exchange 2013 organization, you have to export your Exchange Server 2010 SP3 or Exchange Server 2007 SP3 RU10 public folders first. (Any Exchange 2003 public folders must be upgraded to later versions first and then exported.) You can find detailed instructions and scripts on TechNet. The same scripts are used to migrate public folder content to Exchange Online public folders in Office 365.

    High-level steps in the folder migration process are:

    1. Download the migration scripts.
    2. Prepare for the migration.
    3. Generate the .csv files.
    4. Create the public folder mailboxes on the Exchange 2013 server.
    5. Start the migration request.
    6. Lock down the public folders on the legacy Exchange server for final migration (downtime required).
    7. Finalize the public folder migration (downtime required).
    8. Test and unlock the public folder migration.

    Remove public folders from Exchange

    Most organizations running any version of Exchange that wants to upgrade to Exchange 2013 will need to safely remove legacy public folders, either to install Exchange 2013 or to migrate public folders to Exchange 2013. Note the warning that Outlook versions prior to Outlook 2007 won’t be able to connect to Exchange after public folders are removed. Tip: If you’re running BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), configure BES to run without public folders .

    TechNet has detailed steps on how to remove Exchange 2010 public folders. High-level steps in the public folder removal process are:

    1. Delete unnecessary public folders.
    2. Move the public folder replicas to another server.
    3. Associate mailbox databases with another default public folder database.
    4. Remove the public folder database.
    5. Delete the public folder database files manually.

    Figure B shows the desired dialog box when you are ready to successfully remove the last public folder from the organization. You get to this dialog box when all public folder replicas are confirmed to be removed from the organization.

    As a last resort, if the Exchange UI and PowerShell can’t purge all the traces of the public folder hierarchy, you can manually delete public folder database data from the Active Directory configuration container using the ADSIEdit utility at the following location.

    Managing Distribution Lists #distribution #lists, #exchange #server, #exchange #online, #office #365,

    Managing Distribution Lists in Hybrid Exchange Online/Office 365 Environments

    How to give Exchange Online users the ability to manage their distribution lists

    Microsoft has done a great job of ensuring that hybrid Exchange Online/ Office 365 tenants have almost all of the features and functionality of on-premises Exchange Server deployments, without the need for running and maintaining their own servers. However, there is still one major gap companies consistently run into as they move to a hybrid Exchange Online/Office 365 environment: distribution list (DL) management.

    In hybrid Exchange Online/Office 365 environments, DLs are created on premises and synchronized with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) through DirSync so that users with mailboxes in Exchange Online can use those DLs. However, Exchange Online users can t manage their own DLs because DirSync doesn t support the write back of DLs from Office 365 to the on-premises Active Directory (AD) forest. Exchange has supported the delegation of DL management to users for several versions now, so it comes as a bit of a shock to IT departments when they find out that they have to manage DLs again.

    There are several solutions for this problem, which fall into two categories:

    • Move DLs to Azure AD so that Exchange Online users can manage them through Outlook. This can be accomplished through DL migration.
    • Find a way for Exchange Online users to manage on-premises DLs. By using Forefront Identity Manager, DSQuery, or a Windows PowerShell script, you can provide a way for users to do so.

    Although none of these solutions will get DL management to work the way it used to, I hope one of the solutions will fit your needs.

    DL Migration

    To move DLs to Azure AD, you can migrate your DLs from your on-premises AD forest to Azure AD. As I mentioned previously, users with mailboxes in Office 365 can t modify DLs that are synchronized with DirSync because DirSync doesn t support the write back of DLs from Office 365 to the on-premises AD forest. This solution solves that problem by creating new DLs in Azure AD that users with mailboxes in Office 365 will be able to modify.

    If your organization is going to stay in a hybrid configuration, with some mailboxes in Office 365 and some mailboxes in the on-premises AD forest, there s a downside to this solution: The on-premises users won t be able to use and modify the migrated DLs. In addition, if you ever decide to move back to an on-premises Exchange environment from Office 365, there s no easy way to migrate those DLs back to your on-premises AD forest.

    If you re moving all user mailboxes into Office 365 and you have a limited number of DLs to move, this might be a workable solution. If the plan is to maintain mailboxes on premises or if you have a large number of DLs, this solution turns into more trouble than it s worth.

    Forefront Identity Manager

    You can use Forefront Identity Manager to provide Exchange Online users the ability to manage their on-premises DLs. On the upside, Forefront Identity Manager gives users a nice graphical interface for managing DLs that s similar to the interface users have become accustomed to in Outlook. On the downside, Forefront Identity Manager is expensive to purchase. Depending on how you buy it, the licensing is going to be thousands of dollars. You also need to consider the cost of the server hardware and IT staff to configure and maintain the solution. As a result, few (if any) organizations are going to find user DL management important enough to justify a new deployment of Forefront Identity Manager. If your organization already has Forefront Identity Manager deployed, this is a nice added use for the solution.

    DSQuery

    DSQuery, a command-line tool that has been around for some time, can provide Exchange Online users the ability to manage on-premises DLs. However, most users won t find it easy to manage DLs with this tool. Here are a couple of commands that illustrate this point:

    The first command shows the members of a DL named Sales – East. The second command shows all the mail-enabled DLs in an AD forest. Most Exchange Online users are going to be very unhappy if you tell them they need to run commands like this to manage their DLs.

    PowerShell Script

    The final option is to use a PowerShell script to allow Exchange Online users to manage their on-premises DLs. You can find a script I have written, Manage-DistributionLists. in the TechNet Gallery.

    The Manage-DistributionLists script gives Exchange Online users an interface to manage on-premises DLs, without them having to deal with the complexities of DSQuery. In my opinion, this is the best option for DL management. It keeps all your organization s DLs homed in your on-premises AD forest, but still allows your Exchange Online users to manage those DLs themselves. This script requires an on-premises Exchange server, but if you re using DirSync with your Exchange Office 365 tenant, it s highly recommended that you maintain a hybrid Exchange server on premises.

    Here s a quick walkthrough of how this script works. When you launch the script, it will ask for an Exchange server name, as Figure 1 shows.

    If you want to make life a little easier for your Exchange Online users, you can modify the script. First, find the following lines at the top of the script:

    Next, remove the first two lines. Finally, replace $ExchangeServer with the name of your hybrid server in the last line. With this modification, your users won t be prompted to enter an Exchange server name. Instead, they ll be automatically connected to it.

    After the connection is completed, users will be presented with the menu shown in Figure 2.

    As you can see, I tried to make the script as self-explanatory as possible. All the users need to do is select the option they want. For example, if they select the first option, they ll receive results that look like those in Figure 3.

    If you have any suggestions on how to improve the script, please let me know.

    Don t Overlook DL Management

    There are many things to consider when planning a migration to Office 365, and DL management is one facet that s fairly easy to overlook. I hope that I ve been able to clarify your options for DL management and make your migration a little bit easier.

    Europe Travel Deals: With Euro Weakening, Americans Can Travel For Cheap

    Europe Travel Deals: With Euro Weakening, Americans Can Travel For Cheap As Dollar Exchange Rate Drops

    The dropping euro and a more valuable dollar mean that Americans can get more euros to spend on what’s most important: European beer. Reuters/Ints Kalnins

    Seeing the Mona Lisa is a better deal now than it has been years. Americans and other foreigners can expect to land cheap trips to continental Europe over the next few months after the euro hit its lowest since March 2006 on Monday. That means Americans could get hundreds of more euros for their dollars than they did just a year ago, according to travel professionals.

    “The euro is down about 10 percent to 15 percent from where it was most of 2014, so it’s an instant discount for those of us with U.S. dollars,” said Roger Wade, founder of Price of Travel. “Many analysts are expecting the euro to continue going lower, at least in the short term, and if Greece effectively votes itself out of the euro soon, it could drop even further.”

    The euro-to-dollar exchange rate dipped 1.2 percent just on Monday. At its lowest, one euro was worth about $1.1864, but recovered slightly to $1.1944. The euro’s drop is a product of — among other factors — political instability in Greece, an increasingly strong American economy and the likelihood that the European Central Bank will take quantitative easing measures to boost the European economy, according to NPR .

    The drop in the euro over the last year has already translated into real discounts for Americans converting their dollars, according to James Feess at the Savvy Backpacker, a site dedicated to budget travel in Europe. “An average hostel in Paris will cost about $38 night at the moment, but a few years ago it would cost about $48. That extra $10 can now be used for museum entry or a walking tour. Since most young people travel for a few weeks, that extra $10 per night really adds up,” Feess said.

    The euro has generally been valued a good deal higher than the dollar  since it was introduced in 1999. For much of its existence, the euro was valued between $1.30 and a high just over $1.47. When the euro was worth around $1.37 at the beginning of 2014, $1,000 would convert over to €730, whereas now it would convert to €840. BNP Paribas, a big French bank, predicts  the euro will drop to $1.15 by the end of 2015.

    A high exchange rate likely turned many young would-be-backpackers away from studying abroad or going on a cross-European trip in recent years, Feess said. But with more money in their pockets, travelers could now see more of Europe, including typically more pricey cities like Rome. Currencies outside of the euro zone have suffered, too, so travelers could get good deals across Europe, including in non-euro Britain, Norway and Sweden.

    “Transportation adds up. A one-way Eurostar journey currently costs about $82-$105 but a few years ago that same ticket was around $105-$133. When you add up all these little costs it ends up being a large chunk of money for a multi-week trip,” he said, referring to the London-to-Paris train route under the English Channel.

    Airfares aren’t expected to drop significantly, however, even though the price of oil fell by more than half over the last six months to just over $50 per barrel. Plane tickets are more dependent on supply and demand than on exchange rates. Many airlines are taking the opportunity to reinvest the billions of dollars saved on fuel to upgrade their services, according to the New York Times .

    Dejan Bajic with Danny Travel, an agency that specializes in setting up trips for Europeans living in the U.S. who travel back to their home countries, said his business hasn’t been affected much by the currency rates, but he predicted an increase in interest in Europe among Americans seeking to travel cheaper.

    “Anything you spend there, anything connected to euros like hotels, cars, trains, they will all be cheaper,” he said.

    Yes! International internships are encouraged!

    • In this case, the student should consider doing two separate JGE courses.

    When to book tickets from travel sites rather than airline sites?

    #book airline tickets online
    #

    For domestic flights in the US, the cheapest price is almost always on the airline’s website. Additionally, airlines sometimes include other benefits like additional frequent flyer miles, reduced baggage fees etc. for booking directly through their site.

    Online travel agents such as Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz etc. can sometimes find flight combinations that you cannot book directly through a single airline. This can be useful when there is no single airline (or airline alliance) that serves your route. This is not common for domestic trips, but can happen sometimes for international flights between more minor destinations.

    There is also the convenience of using a single site with all your information already stored instead of having to navigate a different a airline site every time you make a reservation. This can be especially useful for foreign airline websites which are sometimes more difficult to use and can be troublesome with foreign credit cards.

    Finally, if you book through an online travel site, they become your “agent” and can take care of things such as cancellations, schedule changes etc. You might find it more convenient to speak to an English speaking customer service agent on a 1-800 number than calling a foreign airline which may not have a toll-free number or even a number at all in the USA.

    Europe Travel Deals: With Euro Weakening, Americans Can Travel For Cheap As Dollar Exchange Rate Drops

    The dropping euro and a more valuable dollar mean that Americans can get more euros to spend on what’s most important: European beer. Reuters/Ints Kalnins

    Seeing the Mona Lisa is a better deal now than it has been years. Americans and other foreigners can expect to land cheap trips to continental Europe over the next few months after the euro hit its lowest since March 2006 on Monday. That means Americans could get hundreds of more euros for their dollars than they did just a year ago, according to travel professionals.

    “The euro is down about 10 percent to 15 percent from where it was most of 2014, so it’s an instant discount for those of us with U.S. dollars,” said Roger Wade, founder of Price of Travel. “Many analysts are expecting the euro to continue going lower, at least in the short term, and if Greece effectively votes itself out of the euro soon, it could drop even further.”

    The euro-to-dollar exchange rate dipped 1.2 percent just on Monday. At its lowest, one euro was worth about $1.1864, but recovered slightly to $1.1944. The euro’s drop is a product of — among other factors — political instability in Greece, an increasingly strong American economy and the likelihood that the European Central Bank will take quantitative easing measures to boost the European economy, according to NPR .

    The drop in the euro over the last year has already translated into real discounts for Americans converting their dollars, according to James Feess at the Savvy Backpacker, a site dedicated to budget travel in Europe. “An average hostel in Paris will cost about $38 night at the moment, but a few years ago it would cost about $48. That extra $10 can now be used for museum entry or a walking tour. Since most young people travel for a few weeks, that extra $10 per night really adds up,” Feess said.

    The euro has generally been valued a good deal higher than the dollar  since it was introduced in 1999. For much of its existence, the euro was valued between $1.30 and a high just over $1.47. When the euro was worth around $1.37 at the beginning of 2014, $1,000 would convert over to €730, whereas now it would convert to €840. BNP Paribas, a big French bank, predicts  the euro will drop to $1.15 by the end of 2015.

    A high exchange rate likely turned many young would-be-backpackers away from studying abroad or going on a cross-European trip in recent years, Feess said. But with more money in their pockets, travelers could now see more of Europe, including typically more pricey cities like Rome. Currencies outside of the euro zone have suffered, too, so travelers could get good deals across Europe, including in non-euro Britain, Norway and Sweden.

    “Transportation adds up. A one-way Eurostar journey currently costs about $82-$105 but a few years ago that same ticket was around $105-$133. When you add up all these little costs it ends up being a large chunk of money for a multi-week trip,” he said, referring to the London-to-Paris train route under the English Channel.
