I recently ran into a problem where I needed to uninstall WSUS and start over again. While attempting to uninstall WSUS I received a notice that the uninstall did not complete successfully, and a check of the event logs revealed the rather cryptic error 1603.

Our Oracle Developer just came up to me and asked that a loopback adapter be installed on one of our development servers. Now in the Linux world, it seems to me that the loopback adapter is installed automatically, although I could be wrong. Never the less, I was a bit surprised by the request. Here's what I did to install the loopback adapter in Windows Server 2008 R2.

I've decided to go ahead and make my server status PowerShell script available to the general public, so I'm releasing it here. Currently the script is at version 0.2.1, and is pretty stable (I haven't had any issues with it). Hopefully you'll find it useful as well.
I've been playing around a lot with PowerShell recently, as I've been doing mostly System Administration work in a Windows environment. I have a script that I use to check the servers I'm responsible for, and generate a HTML report from the results.

So I've been banging my head against a wall for the last week, trying to get USMT to work in a PC refresh scenario, using hardlinking as explained here, but I kept running into the same error, over and over and over again. When ever the task sequence got to the Release State Store step, it would error out with a 0x00004005 error.

If OSD fails with error code 0X80070032, the most likely cause is trying to deploy a 32-bit OS image using a 64-bit boot image. Edit the associated Task Sequence and change the boot image to a 32-bit boot image.
