Difference between Share and NTFS Permission ?


Guys,
If you're logged on locally and accessing the files directly through the local filesystem, the share permissions don't matter.  If you're accessing the files through a share, then the share permissions apply first, then the NTFS permissions apply, so it's cumulative.
  If you're denied access to a file via a share permission, but allowed in the NTFS permissions, you'll be denied when you try and access the file from the network via the share, but you will be able to access the file if you're logged on to the machine locally, and accessing the file though the drive \ path.  
  If you're denied in the NTFS permissions, you won't be able to access it via either method.

Active Directory Requirements for Exchange 2013

Hi Guys,

With Exchange Server 2013 Preview, it seems that Microsoft is “pushing” customers towards using Server 2008 or later. Not that I think that that is a bad thing, in the contrary! However, I still see customers that have Windows Server 2003 deployed and are using them as main Domain Controllers/Global Catalogs.
As per documentation, it seems no longer supported for Exchange Server 2013 Preview. You need at least one DC/GC running Windows Server 2008 or higher.
Although the Schema Master can still be Windows Server 2003, it seems logical to me that you’d rather standardize entirely on Server 2008, perhaps shortly even on Server 2012.
Below is an overview of the requirements for Active Directory:
Active Directory Forest Level: at least Windows Server 2003 or higher.
Schema Master: required for updating the AD schema for Exchange Server 2013 Preview
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard or Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2008 Standard or Enterprise (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition with SP2 or later (32-bit or 64-bit)
Global Catalog: each AD site that has a Exchange Server 2013 Preview installed, requires at least one server running:
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard or Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter RTM or later
  • Windows Server 2008 Standard or Enterprise (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 Datacenter RTM or later
Domain Controller: each AD site that has an Exchange Server 2013 Preview installed, requires at least one server running:
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard or Enterprise SP1 or later
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter RTM or later
  • Windows Server 2008 Standard or Enterprise SP1 or later (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 Datacenter RTM or later

Outlook Anywhere with Exchange 2010

Hi Guys,

Advantage of Using Outlook Anywhere:-
  • Users have remote access to Exchange servers from the Internet without VPN and getting into LAN.
  • You can use the same URL and namespace that you use for Outlook Web App(OWA).
  • You can use the same Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server certificate that you use for Outlook Web App.
  • Unauthenticated requests from Outlook can't access Exchange servers.

 Testing Outlook Anywhere Connectivity:-
  • Running the Test-OutlookConnectivity cmdlet. The cmdlet tests for Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP) and TCP/IP connections. If the cmdlet test fails, the output notes the step that failed.
  • Running the Outlook Anywhere connectivity test using the Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer (ExRCA). When you run this test, you get a detailed summary showing where the test failed and what steps you can take to fix issues. 
  • You can test this through this site  https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/.
