Symantec EndPoint Protection Manager

I find it very annoying that the Symantec EndPoint protection manager application makes you select a new password from time to time. And.. you cannot use the same password as previously used. I will never understand why it was not configured to use the logged in user authentication. But in any case, it can lead to a person forgetting the pass they set. The solution to this is very easy, and makes the whole point of being required to change passwords an absolute joke. To use Resetpass.bat: 1. Open Windows Explorer on the computer where you run Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. 2. Change directory to the <Drive>:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Tools folder. 3. Double-click the Resetpass.bat executable file. The password is reset to the default password. (admin / admin) 4. Be sure to change the password immediately.

DotNetNuke Upgrade Error on Snowcovered

Noticed this today: DotNetNuke Upgrade Error The Assembly Version ( [ASSEMBLYVERSION] ) does not match the Database Version ( [DATABASEVERSION] ) ERROR: Could not connect to database. Cannot open database "Snowcovered2" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user ‘snowcovered’. It appears that the professionals have troubles too! Strange from an admin point of view that their Database Connector name would be something as obvious as “snowcovered”.  I wonder if their pass is “dotnetnuke”?

Still Waiting on Telerik to reply to support.

We have posted some questions about the Silverlight control here: It is very frustrating that we have not got the sample work they promised. It is stopping us making our DNN Modules.

DotNetNuke DNN An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File Forum Mdoule

When trying to add a file attachment to the DotNetNuke forum module, we received an error that looked like this. An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File C:\webroot\site\\wwwroot\Portals\0\Forums\Attachments\imge.jpg. Please Contact Your Hosting Provider To Ensure The Appropriate Security Settings Have Been Enabled On The Server. We stuffed around for a longer than normal time looking to fix this. We played with permissions on the website host server and folders, as in most of the forum posts about this error we found, they were all blindly looking at that as the problem. Solution Check the folder exists – Look in the folder structure to see if the /Forums/Attachments/ folder is actually there. Create it if is is not – In the website File Manager (ie under the Admin / File Manager DNN menu, create the Attachments folder. ensuring that you set permissions in that file manager to allow… Read More »DotNetNuke DNN An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File Forum Mdoule
