how to convert a shared mailbox back to normal - Microsoft Exchange

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 1:19:00 AM

At some point in time you may be required to convert an exchange mailbox from a shared mailbox back to a normal mailbox.

It should be as simple as set-Mailbox -Identity [mailboxname] -type regular

However,I got the following error (See above)

Error on proxy command 
Active Directory operation failed on [DC name] The value provided for the new password does not meet the length and complexity requirements

As we know a shared mailbox is usually disabled and no password set.


Simply set a password for the mailbox in Active Directory and run the command again.

It has a level of anonymity, if you so choose, its decentralised and its very nice to know that no government or federal reserve can own it. However ,the currency is not mainstream….yet and hence there isn't many things you can buy with it unless you sell it for another currency, but why do we have to?  Well here is at least one simple way of buying mobile date and airtime with your bitcoin using Luno.

  1. From within the Luno mobile app click on Prepaid

Recover GUI in Windows Server 2012

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 1:13:00 AM

Today, while trying to fix another issue on my SCCM server I created another.

I was trying to uninstall and reinstall .NET 3.5 and 4.5. After a successful removal I rebooted the server and after logging in I was confronted with a Server 2012 alternative shell command prompt. I rebooted and still server 2012 r2 only boots to command prompt.I could CTRL+ALT+DEL and open the task manager and open things like firefox but not able to reinstall it. Obviously, I learned the hard way the effects of removing .NET as a windows server feature.

The Fix

On the command prompt window, run the following and wait till it asks you to restart. See Image below.

Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:Server-Gui-Mgmt /featurename:Server-Gui-Shell /featurename:ServerCore-FullServer /all

This solution worked perfectly for me.

Be sure to let me know in the comments below if this quick post has been helpful or not.

UBER HACKED! Massive Data Leak

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 1:18:00 AM

Yesterday another large global company became the victim of a data security breach and had 57 million customers and drivers personal data records stolen.
The sad part of it was that the Chief Security Officer (Joe Sullivan) and also one of Ubers executives tried to sweep this breach under the carpet by paying the attackers $100 000. They managed for a whole year and you must question their motives. Stolen data included email addresses , telephone numbers as well as names.Uber said no credit card information or trip location details was taken but considering the fact that they were trying to conceal it I definitely wouldn't take their word for it.
In light of this breach you have to notice that these breaches are becoming more common and attacks occurring more frequently.  No company is too large or too secure to be breached and its happening to “reputable” companies.
There is a database by an Australian security expert where you can check if any of your data has been compromised. You can visit
Below is some of the more well known companies that has been compromised and what is available for you to search.

There is a list of hundreds more so be sure to check if you have been compromised.

The surface web is one big play area for hackers and cyber criminals looking to exploit and monetise the information you are already freely providing on the internet. Exercise some caution when using the internet and don’t get caught with your pants down and say you didn't know. Start protecting yourself by using the tor internet browser and take it from there.

If you have any questions or comments I'd love to hear from you.

The easiest way to watch MKV files on your iphone,ipad or imac

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 5:31:00 AM

I really enjoy my iPhone, it's simple and easy to use.Well for most things at least but my biggest issue by far has to be how crap iTunes is at managing files. Then just look at how easy it is to copy your movies, books, and music to your Android.
So here is a quick, easy and free way on how copy any video files, most notably .mkv files, to your ios devices. This is also my preferred way to get an episode onto my iphone to watch in the bus on my way home.

  1. On your Iphone , navigate to the app store and install vlc player


  2. Plug your phone into your PC and open iTunes (it usually opens up automatically when plugged in)

  3. Click your phone

  4. Select Apps


  5. On the right hand side scroll to the bottem where you will see File Sharing

  6. Click on VLC then Add File…

  7. Select your file and click Open or you can also hold Ctrl+Click to select multiple files


  8. Wait a few seconds for your files to copy


  9. That's it, Open VLC and your movies or episodes will already be on your device. Just open and enjoy Winking smile



I hope you found this helpful and comment and let me know if I'm the only one that likes iOS but hates iTunes.
