Recently I needed to install a bundle of server 2008 Remote Desktop cals which had been purchased under a Select Plus agreement
My problem was I could not get the automatic activation working within the “TS Licensing Manager” tool as Select Plus is not listed as one of the available license program and tring to use Select or Open got me no where
I found a method of manually activating the licenses;
First you will need some details about you Select Plus license;

Recently I needed to install Citrix Web Interface 5.4 into a Network load balanced cluster on top of VMware vSphere. The installation are configuration went fine however I could not ping the cluster IP from a client machine but I could ping it from the NLB nodes.
The problem and solution seem to be common on the web however but I found most of the pages I looked at were a little confusing or missing some information, so I thought I would create my own.
This post will focus on setting up NLB within VMware and will not cover how to install and configure web interface.

The below script is an example of how you can migrate users from one printer server to another based on the printer model or name.
Sometimes doing a big bang migratiion from an old print server to a new one is not the best idea so this script allows you to provide a list of printer models to migrate rather than doing them all at once. When I use this script I call it from a logn script and add a model or two a day until the migration is complete.

Background on Host Headers
IIS supports multiple web sites on a single server via three different methods, assigning each site a unique IP address, assigning each site a different TCP port number or the preferred way is using the host header name.
When a users connects to a web server the name of the host they are trying to get to is included in the packet, IIS (and other web servers) can use this field to direct the user to a certain web site hosted on the server.

After resizing the partition of a Windows Server 2008 64 Bit server (using gparted) I was surprised when I found the server would not boot and instead gave the message Winload.exe is Missing or Corrupt.
In my case Winload was not missing or currupt but instead something had got messed up with the boot loader, below is the steps I used to get the server running.
Please note these steps are for Windows Server 2008 64 Bit, the steps may be different for other versions please let me know if you get it working on other version.
