Trunk Cisco switch to Netgear GS108T

0

First of all the meaning of tagged / untagged on the Netgear switch.
Untagged = in Cisco terms access port
Tagged = in Cisco terms 802.1q trunk
PVID= in Cisco terms native vlan
At the cisco switch you make a 802.1Q encapsulation trunk

switchport trunk native vlan 10
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,2,3,4,5
switchport mode trunk

 

At the netgear switch you give the trunk port that is attached to the cisco switch the PVID of the configured native vlan (in this case the PVID will be 10).

At the Netgear’s webinterface you can find this setting at the Switching tab > VLAN > Advanced > Port PVID configration.

After this you create a LAG, choose the switchport that  needs this LAG config (LAG membership).

Now go to VLAN > Advanced > VLAN Membership and Tag (T) the VLANS to the LAG.  Do this for all VLANS that are allowed to the switch.

If you want to use an ACCESS port on the Netgear you have to UNTAG this port with the correct VLAN and give it in the PVID config the correct VLAN id.

Really Move applications to ext SD card – android : Not use Moveapp2sd

0

There is no possibility with android to put apps, games or data standard to your external sd-card.

The data of the apps and games go directly into the system memory or the internal sd or usb memory. If you have a removable sd card that is 32 gb  you want to be able to use this card to put large apps, large data etc.

With a tool called directory bind it is possible to do.
Directory bind is the ONLY way to do it.

The phone still thinks the app is on the phone memory but it is tricked by directory bind solving the anoying storage problem.

link for DB is here

Apps on android are default installed to data/app

Default cluster size (allocation unit size) for NTFS, FAT, and exFAT

0
original article link : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/140365

A hard disk partition (also known as a volume) can be formatted to NTFS, FAT, or exFAT. The default values are used by Windows when one of the following methods is used to format the partition:

  • Using the FORMAT command from the command line without specifying a cluster size.
  • Formatting a volume from Windows Explorer when the Allocation Unit box in the Format dialog box lists Default Allocation Size.

By default, the maximum cluster size for NTFS under Windows NT 4.0 and later versions of Windows is 4 kilobytes (KB). This is because NTFS file compression is not possible on drives that have a larger cluster size. The format command won’t use clusters larger than 4 KB unless the user specifically overrides the default settings. You can do this by using the /A: switch together with the Format command or by specifying a larger cluster size in the Format dialog box in Windows Explorer.

When you use the Convert.exe utility to convert a FAT partition to NTFS, Windows always uses the original FAT cluster size as the NTFS cluster size for cluster sizes up to 4 KB. If the FAT cluster size is greater than 4 KB, then the clusters are converted down to 4 KB in NTFS. This is because the FAT structures are aligned on cluster boundaries. Therefore, any larger cluster size would not allow for the conversion to function. Note also when formatting a partition under Windows NT 3.5, 3.51, and 4.0 Setup, the partition is first formatted to FAT and then converted to NTFS, so the cluster size will also always be as described earlier when a partition is formatted in Setup.

Default cluster sizes for NTFS

The following table describes the default cluster sizes for NTFS.

Volume size Windows NT 3.51 Windows NT 4.0 Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows 2000

82567LM Gigabit Network Connection Link has been disconnected – Intel link disconnects when going to sleep

0

System Ethernet card disconnects after LCD screen turns off.

To solve this issue you need to disable SIPS (System Idle Power Saver).
Normally this can be done at the advanced tab in the properties  screen of the network card.

Sometimes this setting is not visible at the tab so then you need to set it via the registry.

 

Run Regedit.exe.

Click on computer.

From menu select edit/find  (or CTRL + F).

Search for SipsEnabled and check if the name after the REG key “DriverDesc” if this is the name of the network with the issue

Change then the SipsEnabled setting from 1 to 0.

Restart the system.

 

How to use the EventCombMT utility to search event logs for account lockouts

0

To download the EventCombMT utility, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Note The EventCombMT utility is included in the Account Lockout and Management Tools download (ALTools.exe).

To search the event logs for account lockouts, follow these steps:

  1. Start EventCombMT.
  2. On the Options menu, click Set Output Directory, select an existing folder, or click New Folder to create a new folder to save the output to, and then click OK.

    Note If you do not specify an output directory, the default location is C:\Temp.

  3. On the Searches menu, point to Built In Searches, and then click Account Lockouts.

    All domain controllers for the domain appear in the Select To Search/Right Click To Add box. Also, in the Event IDsbox, you see that event IDs 529, 644, 675, 676, and 681 are added.

  4. In the Event IDs box, type a space, and then type 12294 after the last event number.
  5. In the Options menu, select Set Date Range.
  6. In the From box, choose your start date and time.
  7. In the To box, choose your end date and time, and then click OK.
  8. Click Search.
  9. To search other computers (non-domain controllers) for account lockout events, right-click the Select To Search/Right Click To Add box, and then click Remove Selected Servers From List. To add computers to search, right-click theSelect To Search/Right Click To Add box, and then click one of the options. For example, to add computers one at a time, click Add Single Server. Click the server or servers that you want to search, and then click Search.

When the query completes, you can view the search results in the output directory that you specified in step 2. You can also import the files into Microsoft Excel. Or, if there is a very large output file, you can import the information into a Microsoft SQL Server database and use queries to evaluate the information.
