And another good day!
Lately I have been dabbling around with ESET Antivirus on workstations and servers while managing it through ESMC.
ESET Antivirus has a ESET Firewall function, however due to a lot of customers having very specific rules and exceptions within their Windows Firewalls i turned that off for workstations. The fact also is that a lot of times, Antivirus firewalls either overtake or conflict with the Windows Firewall (Previous experiences with Kaspersky's Firewall).
This luckily is very easy as it is simply turning 1 option off in the workstation policy.
Good day again!
Network drives are commonly used in many companies. Whether they have a H: drive linking to their home drives or some other drive letters linking to specific shares on file servers .. these are commonly used ways of allowing people to access files that are saved on servers, storage devices or other remote places.
These drive letters are usually spread around by different methods ranging from group policy, workstation management software or manually added by customers.
However, some times something changes that requires the old shares to be removed due to being invalid or outdated.
When you have customers with clusters of network drives of which some are new/correct and others are invalid, it can become annoying to manage.
The script is quite simple and only has a niche usage, but can nonetheless be quite useful.
Good day and welcome to the first of hopefully many blog posts whereby I mention some of the issues I run into while trying to gather experience regarding the world of IT and share solutions or workarounds I find as I go.
One of the earlier things I ran against (Mostly while performing remote background tasks) is changing current user registry's. The problem is that either the specific user/customer accounts on the servers/workstations don't have enough rights to change a registry or that remote software uses an administrator or SYSTEM account on which it has no use to change the current user registry.
Therefor this Powershell script ended up saving me a few times. This can be used from either an Administrator account on the device itself or remotely using any RMM/MSP software.
