How to enable Microsoft Updates for Windows Server 2008 R2
July 8, 2016 – 8:50 pm | No Comment

I was trying to enable Microsoft Update so that I could get Exchange updates but whenever I clicked on the “Find out more” link it would take me to the below screen shot and just stay there with no option to install Microsoft Update.

mupdate

You have to add Microsoft.com to the compatibility view settings of IE11 in order to get the prompt to install Microsoft Updates.

Exchange 2003 not receiving external e-mails
July 2, 2016 – 6:08 pm | No Comment

If you run into this problem where you have an SBS 2003 or Exchange 2003 server not receiving external e-mails or even sporadic, intermittent e-mails, check the self signed SSL cert that the CIECW creates.  More than like it’s expired.  If you re-create it by re-running the wizard and telling it to create a new certificate, you should be golden.  I racked my brain and hours trying to get this to work.

“This copy of the Install OS X El Capitan application can’t be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading.”
May 13, 2016 – 9:48 am | One Comment

On two different occassions I’ve had this problem where I attempted to install OS X El Capitan via USB flash drive onto an older MacBookPro and encountered this error: “This copy of the Install OS X El Capitan application can’t be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading.”

Normally it is due to your date and time being off, usually if your battery died and your date got reset back to 1970.  However, even with the date set via terminal to the current date and time I still have the same problem.  Eventually I found that if you set the date back to 2013 via terminal, so using the command “date 0301120013” has allowed El Capitan to continue installing.  Good luck!
