RSAT for Windows 10 is available for download at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45520 ( or search for RSAT for Windows 10).

Unfortunately, even though RSAT successfully installed (it only takes few seconds), Remote Server Administration Tool is just not available for use on Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Thanks to the post from Sysadmin Tips, the problem is due to Language Pack. The link to download Windows 10  Anniversary Update Language Pack is available on this post, thank to Winaero.  Steps to install Language Pack, follow Sysadmin Tips post.

Had this little fella Samsung Bluetooth Headset mic not working for sometime and was about to dump it off, then I decided to reset it to factory settings. Miraculously it works.

Factory reset steps:

1. Turn off the device.
2. Hold down both volume keys and hold talk button for 5 seconds
3. Turn on the device
4. If pairing is needed, press talk button for 3 seconds. Start pairing process.

Configure DLink DSL-2750U for Port Forwarding using port 80 is a real pain and time consuming process. Was stucked at error “Since port 80 is used as http remote access port. External Port range 80-80 is invalid” for hours looking at all the options available. There’s no clear indication on the menu which shows how to disable or change the http remote access port.

 

Here’s how :

·         Click on MAINTENANCE – ACCESS CONTROLS – SERVICES – REMOTE ACCESS CONTROL – SERVICES.

·         Select HTTP = Enabled. Change the port from 80 to 8080 or different port.

·         Click APPLY.

Keep getting error  “java.lang.Exception: java.sql.SQLException: null userid not supported DSRA0010E: SQL State = null, Error Code = -99,999. View JVM logs for further details”  testing Data Source connection to DB2. Verified credential use to connect to DB2 database is correct, but still getting same error.

 

Managed to resolved this by restarting all JAVA process -> deployment manager, application server, node agent.
