Can't connect to SQL server via ODBC since W10 1803 update

Sysadmin - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:27

As title says, when our PCs update to W10 build 1803 (from 1709) they are no longer able to connect to one of our SQL server via ODBC connections. Error: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

ODBC connections are very standard but the server they connect to is Server 2003 (I cannot wait to get rid of it...)

I've done some reading on this, seems Microsoft have upped their security in the latest build an that I'm not the only one with this problem. What I can't find is concrete info on what exactly MS have changed. Some people are saying its an SMB thing, but my understanding is that they disabled SMB1 in 1709, and this worked perfectly in 1709 with no reconfiguration. Some people are saying one thing, others another.

I'm sure someone else here has already gone through this so I'm hoping to save myself an hour or two of reading. Not looking for a fix, sure I can get there myself, just need to know what they've done.

Many thanks guys

Running batch file as Administrator via scheduled task

Sysadmin - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:16

Does anyone know how to run a batch file as an Administrator via scheduled task using group policy? I know its possible to specify a user account for the task to run under if configured manually but I do not see that option when configured through group policy.

The batch file simply deletes any .log files from a directory.

Any advice is appreciated!
