Time server

Source: experts-exchange

On the server:
type… net time /querysntp
This will show you what time server your domain controller is currently syncing with.

NOTE: the default windows time server on the internet is completely unreliable. I suggest a change.

Now type… net time /setsntp:tick.usno.navy.mil,tock.usno.navy.mil

Your DC now has two time servers available for sync, provided by the US Millitary. Very reliable.

Now all of your clients should be syncing with the DC, either by specifying > “net time /setsntp:{servername}”…or….by logon script. > net time \\{servername} /set /y


Set full access on all mailboxes for one account

For whatever reason you may come across, if you want to give a account full access on all the mailboxes on a server, use this command in powershell:

Get-Mailbox -Server “servername″ | Add-MailboxPermission -User “domain\username” -AccessRights FullAccess | Format-List

copy paste above line and edit it before you run it.

About me…

I was born in the other millenium in the year 1981 in the lovely country of Belgium.
Located in Europe and unknow to any great nations until we win the worldcup one day.
That’s right, I’m a soccer fan, I’m a big Liverpool supporter and I hope to go there at least once in my lifetime to experience the true force of the Kop!
Other than that I take care of my 2 dogs and renovate my house.
I’m also happily married to my beautifull wife for almost 2 years now.

I work for an IT company located in Antwerp as a system engineer.
My “expertise” goes to Windows server, exchange and VMware.
Got certified last year and been using VI3 for quite some time now. Certified but no expert yet 🙂

I’m blogging for a couple of reasons:
– so I don’t have to memorize every solution I come across.
– I get a lot of help from other blogs and decided to do something back. I hope I can help others out to.
– and it’s fun to do 🙂
