Vmware conversion from physical to virtual on windows 2003

Normally this process works without any issue. The problem I get was that the windows 2003 server has lost additional ip configuration in the network card. This was cause windows finding out that the ip are in use by other card and were having a problem with setting them up on the vmware network card. I had to use the process below to find out old physical network card and remove them from the system. Once this has been completed old Windows Server 2003 did not complain any longer.

The other issue I have also noticed was that the server lost some SSL configuration and I need to redo them again.

Open command line the follow the below

·         Run command prompt with administrator privilege.

·         perform “set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1”.

·         perform “start devmgmt.msc” to start device manager MMC snap-in.

·         Click “Show hidden devices” on the View menu in Device Managers ,so that you should see the old devices that are not connected to the computer.

·         remove the old NIC form network adapters category.

Why cron does not run cron.hourly/daily/weekly/monthly scripts?

Simple but great fix. Thanks for sharing.
It’s also might be worth enabling cron logs which might be disabled by default in /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf and then the logs in /var/log/cron.log

Your scripts in /etc/cron.hourly/, /etc/cron.daily/, /etc/cron.weekly/, or /etc/cron.monthly/ do not run?

Fedora Gnome-shell abnormal high CPU usage in combination with Intel GM 4000 videocard

Works like a charm on my Fedora 21 and HP Latitude E6400.

Joris Visscher

I’ve been using my trustworthy thinkpad for a couple of years now, but as soon as I installed Fedora on it, it became quite slow due to gnome-shell using a huge amount of CPU power.

My thinkpad isn’t the quickest out there, it’s a dual core machine from around 2006, but 50% CPU on two cores for just Gnome was a bit excessive.

I’ve been searching a lot, and didn’t found any solution, until I started fiddling with Gnome-tweak-tool and saw the “Background logo” entry.

If you haven’t yet; Install gnome-tweak-tool with the following command:

sudo yum install gnome-tweak-tool

The background logo is an PNG overlay on your desktop, and that overlay doesn’t work well with Intel GM cards.

Start gnome-tweak-tool, disable that extention and see your CPU usage drop to 2%, which is what it should be.
