Incorrectly ordered NTFS ACEs?

I got a question today about a strange permissions problem one of their users was having. Even more strange when the checked the permissions on the folder they got the following:

The permissions on Sub_Directory are incorrectly ordered, which may cause some entries to be ineffective.

Well what is this? Microsoft has a few articles about things like this.

But since this was a users homedirectory we decided just to reset all the permissions on the users folder. [Read more…]

Remove Linkedin post using Iphone

I needed to remove a status update on LinkedIn. Well since I have the LinkedIn app I thought that would be easy. Boy was I wrong. I might be missing something here, but this is the way I found works.

So lets start by opening the post and see what we can do.

So I see 3 possibilities:

  • Green – If I click there I get my profile
  • Red – Nothing happens, unless the post is a link and then you are off.
  • Blue –  Allows me share but not delete it.

So lets surf into www.linkedin.com and be done:

I couldn’t find a way to delete the post there either.

Setting up alternative names for a computer

So a friend of mine had a problem with them not being able to access a windows server using a CName they had created for the computer.

So what is wrong with this picture. Well using a Cname is as bad as using an IP, the AD does not know about this name. There are so many more things that you need to fix.

There are a few simple and simpler solutions.

Using netdom

Reboot the computer to make it all work.

OptionalNames for Server service [SMB]

By altering OptionalNames (You might need to create it) under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters, you can make the Server service allow other names for the machine. Remember that type of OptionalNames needs to be Multi-String Value.

SPNs (Service Principal Name)

You can also manually edit the SPNs for a server to allow Kerberos to IIS and other services.
