I am working for a company which is doing infrastructure operations and IT consulting jobs in Germany, Europe.

My sphere of activities includes virtualization topics, IP networking, storage, server operations, monitoring, backups and network security. I was awarded the Microsoft MVP title for Windows Networking for several years in the past, although my public activity on Microsoft-specific topics has declined seriously due to lack of time so it is not likely to happen again that soon.

If you need to get in touch, just mail the company: office@syneticon.net

If you are wondering about the avatar bunny, Ubisoft supplies a lot more to look at and wonder about.

Note that home setting questions are off-topic here. Your question should have a better home either at Super User or at Unix&Linux.

comment PowerShell Get List Of Folders Shared
plus, it would require RPC communications, which are likely to be firewalled in many configurations even where generic SMB is permitted. Admittedly, net view would not return hidden shares.

comment Find out the device for my cd drive in my unix VM
Sorry but this is a really trivial Linux handling question. As such, it likely belongs to another StackExchange site (U&L and SuperUser spring to mind)

Are you aware of ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2136182 ? It looks exactly like your issue and suggests setting GPG="gpg2" in /usr/bin/pass

comment Windows another RAID 5 fails
@starR you can't "Repair" because the state of the array is "Failed". Even if SMART says that the disks are healthy, one of them might have been kicked out of the array at some point due to a transient failure. Or SMART is simply lying (possible, although rather improbable). At any rate, your array has lost two disks out of three which is considered a total loss as far as the RAID5 reassembly algorithm is concerned.

comment adding PATH with SETX or PATHMAN or something else?
FWIW, there is another "pathed" utility published on code.google.com which seems to do pretty much the same with a slightly different syntax.

comment Allow users to remotely modify Windows Scheduled Tasks without granting them log on rights
This surely works, but the OPs requirement included "without granting them the right to log on", which precludes making the users members of the Administrators group - you effectively can't revoke administrative rights from administrators.
