How to clear Powershell history (done right!)

You might find youserlf in a situation where you need to clear Powershell command history. For example, for us it was needed because we needed to prepare templates for virtual machines deployment and we needed to activate a specific software before finalizing the template.

Unfortunately you need to type a command to enter the code and activate the software and those templates could be used by our customers that might be able to retrieve the correct code by simply striking arrow-up. If you look for a solution you will find that Powershell has a specific command to do that:

Clear-History

However, you might find that this won’t solve your problem. Some [...]

Windows Server 2022 and Azure Stack HCI: Microsoft is slowly attempting to murder Windows Server – part 1

Microsoft released Windows Server 2022 a few weeks ago. It did so earlier than expected, which is pretty odd, but it seems that the development of new features was already complete and mature so there was no point to wait a few months more. The last sentence pretty much explains the current status of Windows Server: so few changes, albeit interesting ones, that the product can be released months earlier than planned and without much fanfare.

While generally speaking the development of new features and functionalities for server applications mostly moved out of the base operating system and while we can also concede that Windows Server has many features at the OS level so [...]

Acronis agent not registered, Windows Server core and SSL issues

We had previously identified what happened to those two boxes but that explanation is out of scope. This post is about how you can quickly recover form that situation.

A few days ago we had a weird issue on a couple of servers after upgrading Acronis agent. Console was unable to start any backup plan, either automatically or manually, complaining that the agent was not registered anymore. That looked weird since we had updated our agents many times in the past but this time, somehow, agents unregistered or were unable to re-register.

Actually, this round of updates had caused issues on a couple of Linux servers too but those had been quickly fixed by rebooting those [...]

The little virtual machine that is crashing Hyper-V on AMD

At VaiSulWeb virtualization is so pervasive that basically there aren’t physical machines other than virtualization hosts or storage since about 2008 or 2009. That means about 10 years now. And counting. Microsoft Hyper-V served us very well and over time our reliance on that technology increased with happy results. It has been solid and consistent and allowed us to scale up more and more, adding new technologies and solutions and enabling us to virtualize roles and workloads that seemed a bit difficult to virtualize.

As many other providers, we recently started integrating AMD CPUs into our infrastructure, given the terrific advantages that those could bring to the [...]

Microsoft releases unusual patches for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP

With an unusual move, Microsoft released on May critical patches for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP. Such operating systems are long been discontinued and they don’t usually receive patches and updates besides eventual special agreements that could have been signed by customers. However, even in the past when WannaCry ransomware had been spreading in the wild and it was compromising several thousands of machines Microsoft released special patches for such old software. This time the new patches address vulnerabilities that would allow remote execution code and thus they have been deemed as critical. The flaws affect Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and could be mitigated by [...]
