Share your knowledge / WSUS Version 3.2.7600.274 Cleanup solution after 08/2015
« Last post by amko_sa on 03. August 2015., 21:02:10 »
If someone have problem with huge Wsus Content folder now is the time to take some free storage space on your WSUS server with wsus cleanup option.

Microsoft was stoped support for Windows XP and Windows server 2003. Because of that we can delete old Windows XP and Windows server 2003 updates.

You must search for updates in wsus console:

Windows server 2003
Windows XP

After serach old updates select one or more updates in search result(select all updates or just some specific updates that you found in search result) and right click on selected updates and choose decline.

When you finish selection for decine updates that you want to delete(XP, Windows server 2003, or some office version update...) you must go to option cleanup wsus server. Wsus clenaup will delete all updates that you decline earlier.
You can get about 20 Gb or more free space on wsus server after this steps.

In my case I realy don't need this updates but you must think carefully do you have a computers that still need these updates.

Files neaded for this solution: winfix.exe, GVCInstall32 or 64.msi (from sonic32 or, vpnclient-win-msi- or version for 64bit system.
After this few step try to configure your client and connect to site.

I had problem with low disk space on comuters on domain After a while, when I finished an upgrade to Windows 8.1.
If someone have same problem like me this is one solution but only if you don't need security log archives:

In my case security log is rapidly growing and and when it reaches a size of 300 Mb it is localy archived. The first step that you need to do is to manually backup or delete already created security archives on computer location C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs

After this step you must go on event viewer in control panel and find security logs tab. Right click on security logs tab and click properties and you will see option like on picture below.

Select "Overwrite events as needed (oldets events first)"  and press Ok.
After this steps security archive logs will no longer be created locally and occupy disk space.

This is one great script to find bad sectors if exist on remote computers list.

Code: [Select]
#Format Excel sheet

[System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New-Object "System.Globalization.CultureInfo" "en-US"
$objExcel = New-Object -comobject Excel.Application
 $objExcel.visible = $True
 $objWorkbook = $objExcel.Workbooks.Add()
 $objSheet = $objWorkbook.Worksheets.Item(1)
 $objSheet.Cells.Item(1,1) = "Server"
 $objSheet.Cells.Item(1,2) = "LogName"
 $objSheet.Cells.Item(1,3) = "EventID"
 $objSheet.Cells.Item(1,4) = "Date"
 $objSheet.Cells.Item(1,5) = "Message"
 $objSheetFormat = $objSheet.UsedRange
 $objSheetFormat.Interior.ColorIndex = 19
 $objSheetFormat.Font.ColorIndex = 11
 $objSheetFormat.Font.Bold = $True

$row = 1

$servers = gc C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\Desktop\machines.txt

foreach ($server in $servers)
 $row = $row + 1
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,1).Font.Bold = $True
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,1) = $server
$AppLog = Get-EventLog -LogName System -EntryType Error -computer $server -Newest 30 | Where-Object {$_.EventId -eq ’7’}
$row = $row + 1
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,1).Font.Bold = $True
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,2) = 'System'
 foreach ($AppEvent in $AppLog)
 $row = $row + 1
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,3) = $AppEvent.EventID
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,4) = $AppEvent.TimeGenerated
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,5) = $AppEvent.Source
 $objSheet.Cells.Item($row,6) = $AppEvent.Message

$objSheetFormat = $objSheet.UsedRange
 $objSheetFormat.RowHeight = 15

User can change values in this place in script:

{$_.EventId -eq ’7’}  - number 7 is event number for bad sectors and user can replace this number with any event number from event viewer which means that the script can be used to retrieve any problems - only for errors (red event logs).

User must be local administrator on all remote computers in computer list.
If user with this script don't find anything that is great news but if result in excel contains event 7 logs that is problem for single computer.

Software / Ultimate Boot CD 5.3.3
« Last post by amko_sa on 13. March 2015., 21:12:38 »

Run floppy-based diagnostic tools from CDROM drives. More and more PCs are shipped without floppy drives these days, and it is such a royal pain when you need to run diagnostic tools on them.
Free yourself from the slow loading speed of the floppy drive. Even if you do have a floppy drive, it is still much much faster to run your diagnostic tools from the CDROM drive, rather than wait for the tool to load from the floppy drive.
Consolidate as many diagnostic tools as possible into one bootable CD. Wouldn't you like to avoid digging into the dusty box to look for the right floppy disk, but simply run them all from a single CD? Then the Ultimate Boot CD is for you!
This will create an ISO image which you can use to create a bootable CD with your favorite CD burning software.
The "Full" version of UBCD includes INSERT. Hence it is much larger than the "Basic" version of UBCD. Please review the UBCD INSERT documentation before burning this ISO since it contains information on modules and customization you may find useful. License: Open-Source.
