Determine User Active Directory Groups from Local Machine off Network
From the top: My current project requires that I validate a user against Active Directory groups. The catch is, the computer may not always be connected to the domain but users may still need to run the tool. At this point, you must therefore accept that any enforced security is able to be bypassed by an attacker since it is entirely enforced on the client. Not exactly part of the solution, but keep it in mind. I understand that I can't query Active Directory while I'm not connected, instead I'm trying to query the Machine SAM (MSAM). The Security Accounts Manager only stores the local accounts (MACHINENAMEAdministrator and others). It will not have domain user credentials. You are thinking of the LSA cache, which remembers the last N domain logins's credentials (where

Does windows azure virtual machine logs out when disconnecting
No, your Virtual Machines don't shut down when you disconnect from rdp/ssh. However: There's always the possibility that your machine will restart, even if infrequently (e.g. failed hardware, Host OS maintenance, etc.). So... your essential programs should be set up to auto-start at boot time, without requiring you to rdp/ssh in to start them up again.

Open directory from server using Java on local machine
If you access the Java application like this: 10.0.0.1JavaApp.jar you are still running the application from the local machine. In order for it to be run on the server you would have a Java process running on that server and then on the local machine you would have another Java application that is the client for the server application.

Connect internally to a Virtual Machine with SQL Server from Web Sites using Windows Azure
Nope! The only way to internally connect that different resources is via Azure Virtual Network. And as of today, Web Sites does not support Virtual Network. Cloud Services however do support Virtual Network, as do Virtual Machines. So if you move your deployment to Cloud Service (Web Role) you will be able to connect it to the VM via internal IP Address and never have to go "out". My believe (and my speculation) that we might eventually see in the future Web Sites being able to connect to Azure Virtual Network, at least for the Reserved Instances.

Access windows server information( like System.IO) from a local machine
You probably want to use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). In .NET, you access it through classes in the System.Management namespace. You can also connect to remote machine event logs using the System.Diagnostics.EventLog class. There are some good examples in the documentation. You might also get some relevant information using performance counters. See PerformanceCounter and related classes.

Printer works from VS 2010 on virtual machine, but does not work correct from VS 2012, why?
I found the solution to my problem. I am slightly embarassed by the solution. The solution was to adjust the size of the label template, which was done in "Advanced" under printer settings. After having done that I could enjoy my labels printed out in full size :) I never found out why there was a difference in the printer settings from the host machine to the virtual machine. I thought the settings would be the same. But never mind, now it works.

Cannot access ubuntu server from other machines other than the machine which is hosting the virtual machine which is my ubuntu server
First of all make sure in the setting of the virtual machine that it is in Bridged Adaptor type connectivity. Give a static ip to the virtual machine using sudo ifconfig eth0 10.0.0.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 the above is an example. You got what I mean. 3.Third, Try pinging the virtual machine with the base machine running the vbox to make sure they are connected. ping ipaddress-basemachine 4 . Now if everything is working fine from there then connect with this virtual machine with other base machine using Remote Desktop Viewer or any other similar application. Specify, the ip-address of the vbox and username, password. It will be able to connect with it now. 5 . If it still is not able to then try to check the firewall rules on both the virtual box machine and the base machine

Window Server 2012 & SQL Server 2012 within single VM on Windows Azure
Arun Rana, That should be possible and AFAIK there isn't any restriction for SQL Server licence to be used in Azure, however take a look at License Mobility through Software Assurance on Windows Azure. If your licence is from MSDN, then it now absolutely legal use it on Azure. If you are unsure about the licence problem and other litigation, you may spin up a VM with SQL Server 2012 pre-installed and this will solve your licence trouble (but right now only available with the combo of SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2008 R2). PS / Personal Experience : SQL Server + some server component isn't performing well for a Medium instance. Either split the server roles or consider choosing a bigger instance size like xLarge or A6.

Windows Azure: renew Virtual machine from trial
If your trial goes off and you want to continue in using the Windows Azure, you have to start pay for it. This means, buy on of them subscriptions. After purchasing a subscription, in my case it was pay-as-you-go subscription, you have to (!!!) contact support by creating Support ticket and ask for migrating your servers from Trial subscription to your new subscription. Fortunately, the support works pretty fast and this whole transition had taken only about two hours. But still, this is silly solution from MS.

Windows 7 on Virtualbox virtual machine: is it OpenGL 1.x compatible?
Yes, your guest VM will be able to run OpenGL 1.x and newer. Install the VirtualBox Guest Additions via the "Devices" menu in the virtual machine's menu bar VirtualBox has a handy menu item named "Install guest additions", which mounts the Guest Additions ISO file inside your virtual machine This will enable 3D hardware acceleration in your guest machine (OpenGL and Direct3D 8/9). VirtualBox states that because 3D support is still experimental at this time, it is disabled by default and must be manually enabled in the VM settings http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#guestadd-3d

Java OutOfMemoryError in Windows Azure Virtual Machine
The GC throws this exception when too much time is spent in garbage collection without collecting anything. I believe the default settings are 98% of CPU time being spent on GC with only 2% of heap being recovered. This is to prevent applications from running for an extended period of time while making no progress because the heap is too small. You can turn this off with the command line option -XX:-UseGCOverheadLimit

windows azure rest api - creating a virtual machine
What you are seeing is a little magic behind the scenes of the portal. When you deploy a Virtual Machine it does indeed end up in a Cloud Service container. This was recently changed to be more obvious in the portal as well, previously they were hiding this from you. When people would delete the VM or add other VMs to the same group (previously called something like "attach to") the cloud service would show up in the portal. People got confused on what this was and it just caused more questions than it was worth. In the portal now you are prompted for a cloud service. If you do the quick create when it asks for the DNS name (and shows the .cloudapp.net next to it) that's the Cloud Service name you are providing. When you do the create via the Gallery it is even more obvious on ste

Azure windows virtual machine load balance
You need both the virtual machines to be under the same cloud service. Only then you get the option to load balance them. There is no way add existing VMs to the same network. there are operations in the Service management API (usable through powershell) to create a new VM. You can use that to create a fresh VM from your existing image and connect it to the same service as your first VM. Then you'llhave the necessary options enabled for load balancing.

VC++2012 Remote Debugging on a x86 Windows Xp Machine
Well, you can do it with Debugging Tools for Windows, for which support has been added in Visual Studio 2012. You should also have Windows DDK 8.0 installed, after VS2012 is. Then, you should install "X86 Debuggers And Tools-x86_en-us.msi" package on the target (XP) machine, configure firewalls properly (better disable completely) and attach using new "Windows User-Mode Transport" (WinDDK adds it). Now you can do usual F10/F11/Shift-F11 stepping. However, there's one rotten apple in a bunch - Windows Debugger works W-A-A-Y slow, stepping from line to line with 5 to 10 seconds delays... For me, it's unacceptable, so I'm still debugging in VS2010 with all its bugs (ha-ha).

SQL Server 2012 32-bit or 64-bit on 64-bit machine?
There is no general advice which version to install. Visual Studio runs in a 32bit process, but your project can target 64bit because it will be debugged within another process. The main question is: How much RAM do you think your database will need? There aren't any drawbacks on installing 64bit software on 64bit machines, but 32bit software will be executed on a compatibility layer (WoW64 - windows on windows 64). Using 32 or 64 bit software on old hardware makes no difference, either. As long as the processor supports it!

windows azure virtual machine hard disk backups
Azure attached disks, just like the OS disk, is stored as a vhd, inside a blob in Azure Storage. This is durable storage: triple-replicated within the data center, and optionally geo-replicated to a neighboring data center. That said: If you delete something, it's instantly deleted. No going back. So... then the question is, how to deal with backups from an app-level perspective. To that end: You can make snapshots of the blob storing the vhd. A snapshot is basically a linked list of all the pages in use. In the event you make changes, then you start incurring additional storage, as additional page blobs are allocated. The neat thing is: you can take a snapshot, then in the future, copy the snapshot to its own vhd. Basically it's like rolling backups with little space used, in the event

Windows Azure virtual machine is slow to access network when scaling
The VM sizes each have their own bandwidth limitations. | VM Size | Bandwidth | | ------------- |:-------------:| | Extra Small | 5 (Mbps) | | Small | 100 (Mbps) | | Medium | 200 (Mbps) | | Large | 400 (Mbps) | | Extra Large | 800 (Mbps) | I suspect you always have one copy of your mounted VHD and have ~150 instances hitting it. Increasing the VM size of the VM hosting the VHD would be a good test but an expensive solution. Longer term put the files in blob storage. That means modifying your scripts to access RESTful endpoints. It might be easiest to create 2-3 drives on 2-3 different VMs and write a script that ensures they have the same files. Your scripts could randomly hit one of the 2-3 mounted VHDs to spread out the load. H

Azure DNS server keep connecting to virtual machine endpoints
Late answer, but for the benefit of anyone arriving here from a search engine, see answer from Craig Landis at this link: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/silverlight/en-US/04589d2d-4acb-4f86-a2d0-957dc2a73a4f/endpoints-not-working-dns-scans-them In summary, there was a change recently so that when you create an endpoint in the portal, it is automatically load balanced and regularly "probed" to check if the endpoint is alive. At the time of writing, the portal will still display the endpoint status as 'not load balanced'. You have to use the Azure CLI tool or PowerShell to recreate the endpoint without load balancing - it cannot be done from the portal. It is the load balancer that tries to probe the endpoint every 15 seconds, and can take the endpoint out of service if it doesn't
