Microsoft Surface 3’s for some reason don’t support mounting USB Flash drives mounted as NTFS from its UEFI/BIOS and have to be FAT32.
Either reformat the USB flash drive as Fat32 and copy back the image (Windows Command Line currently only supports FAT32 to NTFS conversion, not the other way around), third party software needs to be used to keep data in place such as Rufus. This was also recommended by the IT shared service centre where I work and worked perfectly for every Surface 3 device we had.
Georgia Telnet can restrict the number of users that connect to Telnet or SSH.
I am lazy so I tend to generate a list based off our user logon scripts folders, however I do of course take a backup and test it afterwards.
echo Change to the drive where your Georgia logon scripts are located
echo Change to the folder to where your Georgia logon scripts are located
echo Get the dir command to write out a simple list of directories into a file called dir.txt
dir /B /A:D >dir.txt
echo add a 1 to end of each row and copy the list into the file GS_L_User.txt located normally a directory above the user script folders.
echo It takes place straight away
Georgia Telnet Manual and Logon Features
We encountered an issue during a migration to Windows 10 where I had missed a program which had hard coded links, these no longer worked due to Microsoft Access being a newer version.
I generated a simple script so we could change the hard coded links to allow it to select the correct version, all we do is call the script and add the access filename. It only handles Windows 7 and 10, but you can easily add you own section before goto sub_wrongos by using version numbers from MSDN. It can also be amended to launch something else.
I used start instead of call or simply the command line as this would leave the Windows Command Prompt window in the background until the application it launched was closed.
This isn’t ideal and meant to be temporary, so when fully migrated we will hard code them back to our Office 2016 versions of Access Front ends.
REM This script will need to be passed an Access Front End Name, it will then based on the Windows version launch the correct Access Front End
REM Call with <scriptname.bat> <AccessFrontEndName> without an extension (Assume compiled as an accdr)
REM Check Windows Version is 10
ver | findstr /i "10\.0\." > nul
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 goto sub_windows10
REM Check Windows Version is 7
ver | findstr /i "6\.1\." > nul
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 goto sub_windows7
ECHO Windows 10 version launching
ECHO Windows 7 version launching
ECHO THIS SHOULD NOT SHOW!
