  1. We have a requirement to have a standard local account across all of our clients which we will have administrator access. We will want to change this password on a frequent basis. I created this script to accomplish this task. I would love to figure out a way to have this pull the password set for an "MSPAdmin" account at the company level so it can be fully automated without having to enter the password when the script is ran but way beyond my knowledge Details below This scripts checks for the existing account "MSPAdmin" if the account exists the password is reset to the parameter set when running the script. The script then configures the account to be part of the local admins, password to not expire and hides the account from the logon screen. If the account does NOT exist it creates the account "MSPAdmin" and then goes through the steps of setting this account to be part of the local admins, password to not expire and hides the account from the logon screen.

  2. Does anyone use these anymore? We have had non-stop issues with these over the past few months, the two major being: 1. Tickets are ending up on the incorrect board, so we aren't being alerted to them 2. Tickets aren't coming in the Manage at all I have talked to support numerous times on these issues and each time my ticket is shipped off to the black hole called development. Some of these sitting as long as 2 months now! I am thinking of shutting them off and relying on email or phone calls...... thoughts?
  3. I was wondering if someone out there could lend a hand. I am really having a difficult time with something that should be so simple!! I am trying to script the install of the VMware PowerCLI. I have spent like 20hrs on this with no luck!! The install requires VMware VIX to be installed which is part of the exe installer. I have tried: shell, shell as admin, console execute. I even tried grabbing the two MSI's from the exe and installing that way but no luck at all. Everytime the msiexec just seems to sit there and run forever. I tried creating a batch file and having LT call that and still no luck. What is frustrating if I take any of the methods of install, MSI, exe, etc... and paste it in the Command Prompt when logged in, it installs with no issues. C:\windows\LTsvc\VMware-PowerCLI-5.1.0-793510.exe /s /q/vn msiexec /i "C:\windows\LTsvc\VMware VIX.msi" /qn /quiet msiexec /i "C:\Windows\LTsvc\VMware-PowerCLI-5.1.0-793510.msi" /qn /quiet none of these work please help!!

    Patch Manager issues

    You mentioned support issues, Arnie needs to hear how bad it is more often. Like I said he responded to me and got some to call me within 10mins.

    Send an email to this guy ABellini@ConnectWise.com, I did so last week because I was fed up with support or the lack their of. He responded fairly quickly and I had a phone call within 10mins

    View emails send queue from labtech dashboard.

    Yea its super frustrating that the sender side, Labtech in this case has no logging. I don't know about restarting your DB agent every so often, I was told this resets your monitors but I would confirm with someone else to be sure.

    View emails send queue from labtech dashboard.

    I have messed with this some, I would enable logging on whatever receive connector you are sending the email too, this has always helped in my troubleshooting. As to logging in Labtech you are looking at it, support couldn't give me anything else. Here are some notes I have from troubleshooting in the past... -The failedemails table does have a timestamp in the FailDate column -After 10 failures on a unique email address, that address will be added to the list of bad emails. LabTech will continue to send emails to other address not in the list of bad emails. LabTech will attempt to send emails to a bad address 6 hours after the last failure of that email address. If this email is successful, the email address will be removed from the list of bad emails, and it will be allowed to fail 10 more times before it is added back to the list. If the new email fails, that address will have to wait another 6 hours to be tried again. -Restarting the database agent will also clear the list of bad emails. -In Dashboard > properties added the SMTPSSL - True value Hope some of that helps troubleshoot the issue you are having!
  10. If you want something to compare to see my ini file below. I am running 235 agents w/ 2 light users Windows 2012R2 vSphere 6 VM LT 11 v11.0.342 Patch 7 4 vCPUs (Xeon E5-2690 v3 @ 2.60GHz) 24GBs of RAM DB sits on DAS (PERC H730P RAID Controller) 2 x Enterprise class SSDs in RAID1 configuration Performance is slow when opening the computer screen (I have the updated computer screen disabled globally). The dashboard is slow to load, but once in it all seems to be fine. Everything else seems to work well but the computer screen taking so long to load is annoying. Here is the output from the LabTech Product Support Toolkit: https://hastebin.com/raw/popukosita
  11. Anyone have a way to remove this monitor from being triggered when dcdiag shows a failure System Log, it's triggered on all my DC's and really annoying, the errors in the System Log are meaningless or ones that Microsoft says you can ignore (but for some stupid reason can't suppress). I like this monitor so I don't really want to fully disable it, would just like to tweak it Looks like the source of this monitor is the dctest.bat file in the Transfer/Monitors dir, the batch file contains this @echo off if exist %windir%\system32\dcdiag.exe %windir%\system32\dcdiag.exe /c | findstr /I /C:"failed test" | findstr /I /V /C:"systemlog" if exist %windir%\system32\dcdiag.exe goto :end if exist %windir%\ltsvc\dcdiag.exe %windir%\ltsvc\dcdiag.exe /c | findstr /I /C:"failed test" | findstr /I /V /C:"systemlog" if exist %windir%\ltsvc\dcdiag.exe goto :end echo failed test Unable to find dcdiag.exe :end The monitor itself has these settings

    LabTech Stuck Commands Fixes

    So I had to clarify further, here is the official word from WR.... My question: "Do we need to put in exclusions for LabTech? LabTech support says YES we do, multiple people have told WR support has said NO they are already on the back end and adding them will cause performance issues" Webroot response: "The exclusions for Labtech are not necessary when using Webroot." My question: "Does it cause a performance issue having them there? Does it hurt anything having them there? Why is LabTech support saying they need to be there." Webroot response: "They have at times been known to be related to other issues in regards to performance/log file growing rapidly. I am not entirely sure why Labtech suggests these other than it generally being industry standard to apply AV exclusions which setting up something such as Labtech or other RMM tools."

    Maybe this needs to be communicated to LabTech support because they added the exclusions for LabTech as a must

    LabTech Stuck Commands Fixes

    But so far for me if you perform the settings as described in my earlier post the issue seems to have gone away. I know the site has updated the server default profile but if you apply that same thing to the workstations it seems to have fixed the issue. Only change the workstation to Self Protection to minimum. Leave all other settings alone. Also remove the Labtech Exclusions as Labtech documents. I want to clarify some things here: 1. Do you put the LT exclusions in Webroot GSM policy or not? Where are you finding this documentation that says to not add LabTech files/folders to your Webroot GSM policy? 2. Setting the "Self Protection" to minimum was supposed to fix the RDS black screen issues mentioned below, this also has affect on the LabTech stuck cmd issue? Many people have said they have stuck cmds and they don't use Webroot. https://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-for-Business/Update-on-Winlogin-4005-amp-Terminal-Servers/m-p/275354

    Funny because LT support says you have to have those in there. Wish we could get an official word on this.

    From LT WCC2 to ScreenConnect

    Haven't you heard of Service + ? Same BS concept, if you want real support you have to pay more for it. Go LabTech!

  21. I am noticing a few weird things with the new reporting center, as normal support is useless for a response. Issue #1 is in the Performance Review report, under each individual to the left the hardware information is listed. What I am finding is the Product Model always reflects the service tag & the Asset Tag shows nothing. I contacted support and they told me this is by design. The fields used per support are the Chassis MBProduct & Chassis AssetTag Here is the report with the highlighted incorrect fields If I look on the computer screen, the Asset Tag is always blank Why would the report not pull the info from here? Obviously I can change it, but why wouldn't this be OOB?? Issue #2 - If you look at this report, it shows the Date Added & the Date OS Installed as the same (this OS is 3+ yrs old) & it shows the last patch date as 4 mins after the agent was installed. http://imgur.com/5OB4TDe Command History (No patching done) http://imgur.com/MibVXAh The Effective Policy http://imgur.com/unvnauv

    Sweet! We use PRTG to pickup the gaping hole LT missed. I am going to try this out, thanks!
  23. We continue to run into issues where a technician will take a snapshot in VMware and forget to remove it once complete with whatever work was being performed. The result is after some time the datastore fills up and crashes the VM typically causing data corruption. I am looking for someway to determine that the hosts datastore is under a certain percentage threshold or a way to detect snapshots currently on a VM. Any ideas? Or anyone have a solution for this? I definitely know other people have to be facing this issue My solution is find better techs but thats a tough sell haha!
