I realized that my device recorded a video in H.265/HEVC and this didn’t work on my smart TV for video playback, so I needed to convert down from HEVC to H.264.

I came across this project for Windows and OSX called RockyMountain Movie Converter (RMMC) and it worked well to convert.

I’m testing out ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus MSP and trying to get it to bind to a specific IP address on my Linux server to no avail.

Documentation from 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2014 all indicate to modify server/default/conf/TrayIconInfo.xml and add the following changes:

<SDP-PROPERTIES RequestScheme="http" WebPort="80" ipToBind="ww.xx.yy.zz"/>
 <ADDITIONALPARAMS ParamName="ipToBind" ParamValue="-bww.xx.yy.zz"/>

This doesn’t work and still listens on all interfaces causing my other services a conflict.

Eventually if I figure this out, I’ll put a note here for my future reference.

Windows 7 SP1 x64 attempting to add to a 2012 R2 Essentials domain with Essentials Connector.

I verified date and time already.

Looking at the cert I think that is the problem.

Microsoft says to take a look at:  https://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj635102.aspx

My problem is that I renewed the Server CA cert… and now the connector was using the incorrect.  So I need to install the latest CERT as a trusted cert on the machine giving me this problem:

  1. On the WHS, launch Certification Authority from the Administrative Tools menu
  2. Right-click on the <Server>-CA node and select Properties.
  3. In the Certificates tab of the Properties window, you should see at least two certificates, numbered sequentially.  Double-click the newest certificate.
  4. In the Certificate window, select the Details tab, and click the Copy to File button
  5. Step through the certificate export wizard, choosing any of the first three formats (I used the PKCS #7 format, and selected to include all certificates in the certification path).
  6. Save the file to a location that is accessible to the client you’re trying to connect (or a USB drive).
  7. On the client machine giving trust issues, open the certificate management console for the local computer by performing the following:
  8. From a Run line, enter mmc.exe
  9. In the empty console, go to File -> Add/Remove Snap-in
  10. Double-click Certificates
  11. Select Computer Account and click Next
  12. Choose Local Computer, and click Finish
  13. Find the Trust Root Certificates node, and expand Certificates
  14. From the Action menu, Choose All Tasks -> Import
  15. Ensure that the Store Location is Local Machine, and click Next
  16. Browse to the file you exported earlier, click Next
  17. Finish the wizard, and ensure that the new certificate appears in the certificate store
  18. Re-run the Connector software.  It should now run successfully.

I am adding a Windows 7 x64 computer system to a 2012 R2 Essentials domain via the connector (http://server/connect) and it just sits and spins forever. Some digging around, I found that removing items in HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSessionManagerPendingFileRenameOperations and rebooting then reattempting to add the computer works.

Before installing the Convenience Rollup, install the two prerequisite updates:  KB3102810 and KB3083710

When installing the Windows 7 Convenience Rollup (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3125574), I had to disable Windows Updates because WUSA kept sitting there spinning for an hour Searching for updates.

net stop wuauserv

That did the trick, restarted the Convenience Rollup installer and it ran right on through it.

So after a reboot, it is checking for updates… going on about 30 minutes at this point (12:35am).
