Access denied when capturing an ISO in shared mode i SCVMM 2008

by Thomas Forsmark Sørensen 26. August 2010 16:11

When capturing (mounting) and ISO in shared mode to a VM in System Center Virtual Machine Manager I received an access denied error.

The error was the following:

Error (12700)

VMM cannot complete the Hyper-V operation on the server.domain.local server because of the error: 'SERVER' failed to add device 'Microsoft Virtual CD/DVD Disk'. (Virtual machine ID 04AA0CF7-E715-41F0-AC9B-2496CE31FE20)

'SERVER': User Account does not have sufficient privilege to open attachment '\\LibraryServer.domain.local\VmmLibrary\ISO\ISOFile.iso'. Error: 'General access denied error' (0x80070005). (Virtual machine ID 04AA0CF7-E715-41F0-AC9B-2496CE31FE20)

(Unknown error (0x8001))

Capturing in non shared mode works without any problems.

Microsoft have described the problem and the solution in the following KB article

The solution is to add the HyperV host to the Active Directory group called "Windows Authorization Access group" placed in the built-in container.

I had to reboot the HyperV server before it worked even though it is not mentioned in the KB article. Undecided

Finally Microsoft released a long waited hotfix

A long time ago i ran into a problem where Windows Server 2008 R2 loses the ability to connect to a network share on a Windows Server 2003.

Microsoft has now finally released a hotfix to the problem (KB2194664).

When the Windows Server 2008 R2 is restarted everything is working as it should. But after a while it can no longer connect to a network drive on a Windows Server 2003 server.

Sometimes I cannot map on the UNC name and sometimes I cannot map on the IP address. 

When I cannot map the home drive on the UNC name I will get the following error:
System error 53 has occurred. "The network path was not found"

When I cannot map the home drive using the IP address I will get the following error:
System error 59 has occurred. "An unexpected network error occurred."

Back in January 2010 I started a tread on the MS forum describing the problem. It has now grown to be a large tread with 159 posts and over 16.000 views. More...

OWA is showing blank page after upgrading Exchange 2007 to SP3

by Thomas Forsmark Sørensen 23. August 2010 23:12

I just updated a customers Exchange 2007 from SP1 to SP3.

After the upgrade the OWA did not work anymore. When going to the a blank page was displayed.

It turned out to be the HTTPS bindings on the IIS default web site that was gone. I added the HTTPS again and the OWA was working again.

Nice and simple, AFTER I had figured out what was wrong. Cool
