Robocopy skips files with multithreading switch set to /MT:32

Some time ago I reported an error Robocopy logged when it tried to copy a directory where the primary group was not set. In the same project we encountered another problem: If we use Robocopy with the /MT:32 switch (use multithreading with a maximum of 32 threads), the problem occurs that some files and directories are not copied. These were often zero byte files, but also standard image files such as JPEGs and entire directories. The skipped files and directories had no special features, we checked them in Explorer and also with PowerShell and Get-ACL. Unfortunately, the skipped files and...

Server 2019 Preview – ADPREP fails with “Failed to verify file signature: error 0x800b0109”

Today I have some time and wanted to upgrade my HP Proliant G8 Microserver running Server 2016 to the new Server 2019 Preview (build 17623). During setup I received the following message: "Active Directory on this domain controller does not contain Windows Server ADPREP /FORESTPREP updates. See https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=113955." Okay, no problem, I thought I'd update the schema.

Excuting PowerShell scripts on Windows clients monitored by Icinga (Nagios etc)

For one of my customers I have set up a monitoring system based on Icinga2. Icinga2 runs on a Ubuntu Linux host and monitors clients, servers and devices on the network from there. In order to monitor the Windows computers, the Icinga2 client has been installed on them, which can be downloaded here. The clients were then connected to the Icinga2 server and the usual parameters such as CPU, RAM, hard disk usage etc. were recorded. My customer was very satisfied, but had another special task for me:"I would like to monitor an application running on one of our Windows...

Robocopy error 1338 (0x0000053A) during file migration from NetApp to Windows Server 2016

I am working on a project to migrate CIFS shares on a NetApp to Windows Server 2016 file servers. To migrate the folder and file structure I use Robocopy with the following command line: [cc lang="batch"]robocopy \\netapp\vol_home$ D:\vol_home /MIR /SEC /SECFIX /R:1 /W:1 /MT:32 /LOG:D:\Migration\Robocopy\vol_home_output.log /NFL /NDL /NP[/cc] The migration of the data has so far worked without problems. Today, however, Robocopy displays an error while trying to copy a directory: [cc lang="batch"]2018/02/25 13:47:46 FEHLER 1338 (0x0000053A) NTFS-Sicherheit wird in Zielverzeichnis kopiert D:\vol_home\test\ Die Struktur der Sicherheitsbeschreibung ist unzulässig.[/cc]Or in english: [cc lang="batch"]ERROR 1338 (0x0000053A) Copying NTFS Security to Destination...
