The EATON Intelligent Power Manager is a software package that help monitor and manager UPS connected to your server infrustracture and can be installed in different ways. For virtual environments, the easiest way is to deploy the pre-configured Virtual Appliance for VMware ESXi.
However what I discovered is there is no easy way to reconfigure the IP addresses just from the management console. As the appliance is based on Centos Linux, you can use basic Linux commands to change the IP address.
For this, you will need either direct console access or SSH.
As you will be changing the IP address and a disconnection will be required, I advise connecting via the direct console.
Log on to the Virtual Appliance as root (Default username is 'root'; default password is eaton)
Use vi to modify the ifcfg-eth0 file
Update with the following lines: DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static ONBOOT=yes TYPE=Ethernet IPV6INIT=no IPADDR=x.x.x.x NETMASK=255.255.255.0
Then, save and close (:wq)
Use vi to modify the sysconfig/network file #vi /etc/sysconfig/network
Update with the following lines: NETWORKING=yes NETWORKING_IPV6=yes HOSTNAME=localhost DOMAINNAME=localdom GATEWAY=x.x.x.x
Then, save and close (:wq)
Restart the network service to have settings take affect
During the setup of some PCs recently I found the error that Office 2013 would not activate. While I did some Google searches and a lot of forums often said the solution was to reinstall the software, which is a lot of effort, especially if you have the error on multiple computers.
This is the error I received:
For this particular instance, I found that I had to open an Office app (whether it was Word or Excel etc.) as Administrator. Meaning, right-clicking the icon and selecting Run as Administrator.
Once it was running as Administrator, I was able to get it activiated.
Not sure what was different able that installation but that's what I had to do to get it activated.
using Outlook 2003 via Citrix session, time zones in Outlook would not match the user session time via
Citrix. Email would show the wrong received timestamps.
However if you log on to the same server via Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) instead of via Citrix (ICA) the timestamps would be correct.
When going to Options > Calendar Options > Time Zones... Outlook
would default to (GMT) Coordinated Universal Time.
that registry for AppInit_DLLs registry entries for Citrix was missing. Specifically, the DLL references that provided the necessary hooks for Citrix to provide the time zone redirection of the client session. Since the office application was 32-bit, this meant that the reference for 32-bit applications for these required hooks weren't being applied despite what the Windows Server GPO was instructing or redirecting.
MYOB PowerPay is old. Like... really old. The database engine behind this software was built in 1990 and is by a company called ACI which no longer exists. So expecting to run it on a modern operating system like Windows 8 is a high expectation.
Originally I tried what everyone else would do and go straight for the Windows Compatibility settings. I tried everything and every version with no luck.
However this is how I got it going on Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop Server, so this should also apply to Windows 8.
So normally after the install of PowerPay 8.x you will see this error:
"4D Engine has stopped working"
Go to the Start Screen and search for "Environment Variables"
On the System Properties screen, click on Settings under the Performance heading
Go to the Data Execution Prevention tab. Make sure DEP is set to On. Then click Add.
Browse to where MYOB PowerPay is installed and select PowerPay.exe and click Open.
MYOB PowerPay will now open.
