Written by r2d2. Posted in Errors, Server, Tips

The error means that Veeam cannot identify what blocks have changed. This could have numerous causes, for example, your storage was powered down without to shut down the VMs via guest OS first.

The fix is fairly simple but it does require powercycling the VM, see KB:1113 – How to reset CBT. From the KB article:

  1. Power off the VM
  2. Right click the VM, click “Edit settings”, find the “Options” tab and click “Configuration Parameters”
  3. Set the “ctkEnabled” value to false
  4. Set the “scsi0:x.ctkEnabled” value to false for each disk of the VM in question5. Open the source folder and remove any -CTK.VMDK files.
  5. Power on the VM
  6. Power off the VM again. This step is needed to update the CTK table.
  7. Power on the VM
  8. Rerun Backup or Replication job to re-enable CBT

Autologin – windows 7

Written by leif. Posted in Diverse, Tips

Autologon enables you to easily configure Windows’ built-in autologon mechanism. Instead of waiting for a user to enter their name and password, Windows uses the credentials you enter with Autologon, which are encrypted in the Registry, to log on the specified user automatically.

Autologon is easy enough to use. Just run autologon.exe, fill in the dialog, and hit Enable. To turn off auto-logon, hit Disable. Also, if the shift key is held down before the system performs an autologon, the autologon will be disabled for that logon. You can also pass the username, domain and password as command-line arguments:

autologon user domain password

Note: When Exchange Activesync password restrictions are in place, Windows will not process the autologon configuration.

Reset 10.5 Leopard & 10.6 Snow Leopard password

  1. Power on or restart your Mac.
  2. At the chime (or grey screen if your chime is turned off), hold down Command+S on your keyboard to enter single-user mode.
  3. This step is optional, but it’s a good idea because it checks the consistency of the hard disk before moving on. At the prompt, type fsck -fy and press Enter/Return. Wait for the checks to complete before going to the next step.
