Can you think of a valid reason to setup a singleton server?

Can you think of a valid reason to setup a singleton server?

I define a singleton server as a server that isn't clustered, and may or may not be in centralized authentication or configuration management.

Rest Time 1.09 - Simple and elegant break reminder.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 10:16

Rest Time is a small, simple, elegant and unobtrusive break reminder. Taking regular rest breaks away from your computer is essential for remaining focused, maintaining your energy levels throughout the day and preventing discomfort and repetitive strain injuries. Rest Time lives under an icon in your Mac's menu bar and detects for how long you have been working without requiring privileged access that might put your privacy as well as your internet security at risk.

  • Intelligent Activity Monitoring - Dumb timers are annoying. That's why Rest Time is clever: It will never start a timer when you're not actually at your Mac and it will detect when you have taken a break without needing any prodding. Unlike other tools, Rest Time does so without requiring you to give it the dreaded "Access for Assistive Devices", which would lay you wide open for key logging and risking your privacy, as well as your internet security.
  • Chilltastic Breaks - During a break Rest Time takes over your display and shows you a relaxing animation that gets you straight into a chill-out mood. While it locks the screen to gently force you away from your Mac, the unique time lock button allows to unlock it with only a little of fuss but a lot of guilt.
  • Your Companion, Not Your Boss - Rest Time recognizes that there are times when taking a break is not an option and allows you to disable its countdown for up to 12 hours. This allows you to safely get it out of your way during presentations or other times when its use might be inappropriate without having to quit it and likely forget about it altogether.
  • Simple and Elegant - Rest Time reminds you to take breaks and has everything it needs to do so well; and nothing else. The resulting design is uncomplicated and easy to live with, day in day out.
  • Features
    • Simple, elegant menu item bar user interface
    • Privacy preserving activity monitoring
    • 10, 5, and 3 minute warnings before breaks
    • Soothing break animation
    • Disabled without quitting
    • Clock only starts running when you become active
    • Detects informal breaks
    • Deals gracefully with Mac going to sleep
    • Locks entire screen, but can be unlocked if necessary
    • Supports multiple displays
    • Automatic software updates
    • 14-day free trial
    • From a team with over twenty years of continuous Mac development

    Version 1.09:
    • Allows the digits in the menu bar to be hidden to save space

    • OS X 10.11 or later

IPv6 and Windows domain - register only ULA addresses in DNS

Sysadmin - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 10:05

Hi all

In my network setup hosts get a global IPv6 (with a prefix from our ISP) and an ULA address (with our own prefix). Only the ULA addresses are routed over VPN. On of the problems I'm having is that domain controllers and domain members register both their global and ULA IPv6 address in DNS. Is it possible to make Windows domain servers (and possibly Windows domain members) not register their global IPv6, but only their ULA address?

vCenter - ESXi01 disconnected, Reason: Host IP address conflict detected

Sysadmin - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:46

EDIT: Never mind!! It's a DNS problem!! ( No shit ah? :D )

Hi, I have a cluster of 3 ESXi's and suddenly my first ESXi disconnected with the following error:

Disconnected from host: Reason: Host IP address conflict detected.

I'm 90% sure I don't have an actual conflict in my network, There is no DHCP as well.

When I connect directly to the host, Everything is fine and the VM's are working.

It looks like that only vCenter thinks there is a conflict.

I tried to find a conflict in my network but I didn't find anything.. I restarted vcenter, I restarted the ESXi management network, Didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Previous admin added policy to disable Skydrive under Default Domain Policy, ADMX templates long gone

Sysadmin - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:42

As the title suggests, a previous admin at my org modified the Default Domain Policy at the time with what I assume was Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 ADMX templates and enabled Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Skydrive\DisableFileSync. This setting now appears under "Extra Registry Settings" when I run a gpresult, and it doesn't show up in the group policy editor.

From what I'm finding online, there are two ways to fix this: delete and re-create the GPO without that policy, or re-install the ADMX templates, set that policy to unconfigured, and re-install v1803 templates.

As you can imagine, I am very hesitant to delete and re-create the Default Domain Policy GPO, as well as gut my ADMX store and replace it with 2012R2 policies to fix this. Is there a third method I'm missing?
