The mysterious case of a crashing server (LanmanServer) service

July 27th, 2013 No comments

A few days ago, we had mysterious issues with one of our Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 machines. The problem was noticed, because an information popped up in the system tray, of other terminal servers, that the Remote Desktop Licensing Service is not available on the network.

The source server of the problem was found pretty easy. After a troubeshooting for a while, i found out, that the problem-machine is not available via UNC-Path’s and Named Pipes.

If i tried: net use \\<troublemachine> from a remote system i received the error message, that the system is not available. So i searched for the service, that is responsible for providing this services, and this is the server service also known as LanmanServer. Read more…

Automate Logins with Keepass and Firefox

March 10th, 2010 No comments

KeeFoxA long time ago, but now it’s here!

everyone knows it’s very annoing if you have to login to multiple websites during work days. It would be much easier to have a tool tool, what helps us to automate the login process to websites like Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Onlinebanking, etc.., where i am registered to. That would safe time and increases workflow and you don’t need to consider about passowrds anymore. Before this article i used a very simple tool to manage my passwords. I also heard and tested Keepass in the past, but it brought no advantage on my workflow.

Now I found this tool Read more…

Debug Chooser – A tool to choose between multiple Debugger in the Taskmanager

November 27th, 2008 1 comment

The “Debug Chooser” is a tool primary developed to have multiple debugger applications/options in the taskmanager available.

What else can i told you about this tool. All options are configured trough an INI file, you can configure an application timeout, wich ends the debug chooser after a time period and launches the selected application. Its a tiny little application, what saves a lot of work if you have to work with multiple debugger. But it also runs stand alone as well and you mustn’t register it to AeDebug

Here is an sample how the debug chooser is called over the taskmanager.


Please feel free to download it, test it and post me some comments, or feature request for this tool.

File Version:
Supported OS: WIN2000|XP|2003|VISTA
Programming language: AutoIT
Language version:

Debugchooser Setup (V0.0.1.50)

Tool for setting default printers (on Users, local & remote computernames)

March 30th, 2008 No comments

I know there are a lot of tools on the web for setting a default printer depending on different cases. But for me they were all to complex a little bit. I want it more easier and wrote my own SetDefaultPrinter tool wich tries to set a default printer, depending on a username or a local computername or a remote computername (if your users working in terminal server sessions and you have to set the default printer wich ich connected to a special local client).

My tool works as follows…. Read more…

Backup Tool for Cisco Devices

June 5th, 2007 6 comments

Because i have a lot to do with cisco network environments, i searched for a tool, wich i can use, to backup a amount of cisco network devices quick and easy through TFTP. But i didn’t find any good tool, wich provides this feature. After a lot of research work, i deceided to write my own “Cisco Device Backup Tool”.

The basics on my tool based on a simple theory. One unique username must be configured on all cisco devices, and an easy configurable .ini file wehre i can do the main configuration and backup settings.

For my tool i used the scripting language AutoIT Script. A powerful development kit where you easily can create GUI’s, fuctions and much more things. Since version 3.2.x AutoIt even supports commands to control the Windows TCP stack.

The function of my tool is very simple. Read more…

Windows XP based Remote Desktop Clients could not logon the Terminal Server

May 25th, 2007 No comments

Wer schon mal das Problem gehabt hat sich mit einem Terminal Server Client zum Server verbinden zu wollen und sich dann gefragt hat warum die Session abgewiesen wird, der sucht meistens den Ursprung des Fehlers auf dem Terminal Server selbst, da es nach der Art der Fehlermeldung die MSTSC.EXE zurueckgibt so aussieht.

Auch nach einem feineren Tuning der GroupPolicies Read more…
