comment What ports do I need to open for offshore to access our SQL Server db?
@Chris, Thanks. Offshore uses CITRIX. Does this require that a port be opened for every resource that they need to access? I'm not knowledgable at all on this topic. In my ignorant mind, I would think of CITRIX as sort of RDPing to a server within the firewall, and that a single port, the one that CITRIX uses, would need to be opened. Since I would expect the remote server to be within the firewall, I would expect no further ports to have to be opened.

comment User vs. System Environment Variables: Do System Variables Override User Variables?
I rebooted and still when I run "echo %path%" from a cmd.exe window, it displays my system env variable, not the value of the user variable. So, I deleted the User variable, o Admin access, changed my System path variable and the did teh same echo cmd. The updated env value was displayed w/o rebooting. This tells me that USER vars do not override system vars and that a reboot isn't necessary. Neitehr is what I expected.

comment 32 vs. 64-bit ODBC Administor Utilities
@Ramhound: What's not confusing about naming both the 32 and 64 bit utilities Odbcad32.exe (note the key word: 32)? What's not confusing about placing the 32 bit utility in the SysWoW64 folder and the 64 bit utility in the system32 folder? Do you work for Microsoft?

comment 32 vs. 64-bit ODBC Administor Utilities
Judging by the fact that I don't see the 32 bit DB2 driver available when I go thru the Control Panel to create a new DSN, I would say that inb teh Control Panel, Windows provides only a link to the 64 bit version of the utility on my 64 bit OS, which - if it had to pick only one- would probably be a sane choice.

comment Internet Explorer 11 dying when access Favorites (star) button on Windows 7
@Sunk818: My mistake, I previously ran the fully qualified path "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\sfc.exe" when I got that error. Without qualifying it, it founf it somewhere else in my path and is now running.

comment Insufficient rights to copy via Windows Explorer but can copy via DOS
I downloaded a Windows Explorer like program, Xyplorer, and was able to copy files into folders that Windows Explorer required Admin credentials to be entered before it would allow it. So, if this is some sort of corporate policy in place, it isn't a very secure one.

comment Insufficient rights to copy via Windows Explorer but can copy via DOS
Policy certainly is preventing me from performing the copy but I am puzzled why it's only smart enough to stop me from using Windows Explorer. I am trying to figure out if I should try installing other Windows Explorer alternatives to see if they are also exempt but I am trying to avoid unnecessary installs.Strange again, I only have rights to install, not to uninstall. I cannot tell you what "Elevated Rights" comprises of because I dont know where it is defined and I seriously doubt that I have visibility to this sort of configuration/

I cannot provide the Admin password because I am not intentionally provided such info.

Thanks to all!!

comment User specific folder rights vs group membership rights
That could also mean that the lower of the two rights are applied. For example, if the group was given read access but the individual write access, what happens?

That is my also admittedly limited and not rigorously tested experience. Thanks!

comment Read Only flag. A property of the folder, too? (not just file objects?)
@Harry: I agree with your last comment. Even the ATTRIB cmd, not just the GUI, fails to display the value of the folder RO flag. No issues with the Hidden flag.

comment How to determine if a Service account has login as batch rights to a server
I want to check to see if Service Acct "A" has Logon As Batch rights on Server "B". Do I have to run this SysInternals command on the server "B" to determine this? I presume so.
