Intel Xeon 5500 series Blue Screen with Hyper-V (Win2K8 R2)

יום שבת, יוני 26, 2010

From the KB: A computer is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and has the Hyper-V role installed. This computer has one or more Intel CPUs code-named Nehalem installed. For example, the Nehalem CPU for a server is from Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and for a client is from Intel Core-i processor series. In this scenario, you receive the following Stop error message: 0x00000101 (parameter1, 0000000000000000, parameter3, 000000000000000c) CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975530

Hyper-V or VHD Backup

יום שבת, דצמבר 27, 2008

One of the main advantages in virtualization is having the ability to quickly recover failed systems. By turning a system into a virtual system you are actually turning it into a file that can be used on any system that has Hyper-V installed on it thus enabling quick recovery of a failed system. The main problem is that to be able to backup a VHD file you need to stop the virtual machine. Now obviously, on mission critical systems you can’t stop a system every time you want to back it up.

Access Based Enumeration (ABE)

יום שבת, יוני 28, 2008

Neither the concept, nor the implementation are new-so why blog about it? Well,it seems that ABE received a lot less attention then it should have. Most networked operating systems will allow you to share information, and based on your permissions you will only be able to “see” the resources that you can actually access.
