Mark Russonovich demonstration of Stuxnet, Flame, & more.

In between troubleshooting Windows Server 2008 SysVol Replication errors this week, I remember wanting to mention Mark Russonovich’s videos on Technet from when he demonstrated Stuxnet and Flame in Virtual Machines last year. I think I forgot to post the link so here it is, it was pretty entertaining. You can watch the video from June 11,2012 at TechEd here: http://video.ch9.ms/teched/2012/na/SIA302.wmv

I solved a pretty annoying problem today when I finally found the solution to my SYSVOL replication error on a 2008 Server Domain Controller that was being improperly labeled with a \?C:WindowsSysVolSysvolDomainname.
The solution was simple but took me awhile to find it. All you have to do is go into ADSIEdit on the 2008 Domain Controller and maneuver to the msDFSR root path then edit the path that has the question mark and delete the first three characters. For the exact steps just check out the link at the end… Here is one of the technet articles that helped me get to the bottom of this.

Here is a link to the workaround which enables you to remove the bloody questionmark that was causing me grief.
