kwd:{Q: How Can Multiple Computers Needs To Restart Automatically After Windows Update Finishes
I created the following batch script on a fresh copy of Windows 7 system for installing Windows updates and rebooting automatically.

At the result of my experimental lab, computers restarted automatically first before installing Windows updates completely. I am looking for a solution that computers need to restart automatically after Windows update finishes. It will save a lot of time and
efforts for IT technician for deploying Windows Image and installing Windows updates. Please, be advised.

gls*android aax mp3
kwd:{ On my iMac, I use Audiobook Builder for assembling audiobooks, and under the build options is an option to use M4B (AAC) format when building audiobooks. It's a nice little app for $9.95 for anyone who is using a Mac and is interested in ripping books from CD and converting them for iTunes, or for combining MP3s into an audiobook.

gls*"system state" "contains" "active directory"
kwd:{"The system state contains a number of items:

System Registry
COM + Database
Certificate Services
Active Directory
IIS Metabase
Some of these items are only included if the specified service is installed (AD, IIS, Certificates). (Details are online. TechNet: Server 2003/2003R2. MSDN: Server 2003/2003R2.TechNet forums: Server 2008. MSDN: Server 2008 and upwards)

If you need to restore a server, you will need this state to recover the registry, or your AD Domain, or IIS sites."

gls*"Cannot open MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID service on computer"
kwd:{"This is caused because there are several accounts that need access to Log on as a service that in previous versions of Windows either did not exist or did not require this access.  Once again, you would think that dcpromo would update these settings automatically.  But sadly, it does not, instead leaving it to us lowly IT peons to perform the task manually.

To edit this setting, open Group Policy Management and edit the Default Domain Policy.  Navigate to Computer Configuration, Policies, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, User Rights Assignments.  Edit Log on as a service and add the following groups:

You may also need to add these groups to the Default Domain Controller Policy.

Run gpupdate /force on the server in question and then reboot.  The installation should now succeed."

gls*"Cannot open MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID service on computer"
kwd:{"Hi all,
Server 2012 installed WSUS all working OK, few days later the error being discussed here. Unable to grant access in secpol as the box to add ID is greyed out and I'm unable to add to the group policy because it can't find the ID specified. So this is what I found and how I solved it.
The error seems to be group policy, the Logon as a Service setting in one or more of your policies - ideally find and remove / update this if possible.
This is how I resolved (workaround):-
1. In Active Directory Computers and Users create a new OU, e.g. Blocked
2. In Group Policy Management, right click the OU and select Block Inheritance
3. Move your server with the problem to the OU
4. On the server with the problem, run a command prompt (admin) and force a group policy update (gpudate /force)
5. Reboot Server with the problem
6. Logon to Server - wait for all services to start (approx. 5 mins)
All working again..:)

gls*"teamviewer" "linux" "not ready"
kwd:{"Thanks very much for this.  I have been following your suggestions the logical way, i.e. making random changes in file and directory permissions and uninstalling and reinstalling TeamViewer 8 and 9, including MultiArch versions.  Something has certainly worked, but because of my methodical approach, I'm not sure what; the PC now boots up with TeamViewer ready to go.  Messing about with the TeamViewer daemon, which is really hard to shut down, seems to be problematic; it's best to install and then reboot and let the daemon do its stuff.  Looking at the log files, there seem to be an issue with the file and directory permissions tracking through a link from /opt/teamviewer9/config into the user's home directory.  I have basically changed ownership and permissions so that owner and root can do anything to config files accessed this way, and that seems to be the key difference."
