CMD (or batch) script that helps you quickly reset the SharePoint timer service, the SharePoint administration service, and Internet Information Services (IIS). Works without modification for On-Premise versions of SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016, and SharePoint 2019.
AWS, Azure, Cloud
I love cloud stuff. This section of my website chronicles my work that is directly (or not so directly) related to cloud computing. These are some of the fun cloud stuff I have had time to write about (or that I consider sufficiently relevant to post). Here you will find AWS, Azure, and non-vendor specific cloud computing articles as well as some more traditional server work that I dabble into.
I remember having to terminate an entire Amazon EC2 instance because I somehow lost access to it via SSH. Well, looking back, termination really wasn’t necessary. Using the simple process described here, you can easily regain access to the AWS EC2 instance that you locked yourself out of.
My previous article on the subject of adding a swap file to an Amazon EC2 instance focused on adding the swap file to the instance storage (also known as ephemeral storage) that comes with certain Amazon EC2 instances. This article discusses how you can still leverage the concept of swap files even on “EBS only” Amazon EC2 instances.
Connecting to databases via SSH Tunneling is something developers and IT professionals often need to do. And HeidiSQL is one of the more popular open-source database tools. While HeidiSQL fully supports SSH tunneling, there doesn’t seem to be any documentation about how to accomplish this. So, after struggling with this for a few hours and figuring it out, I put these instructions together to help others.
These days, cloud solution providers everywhere are marketing “serverless” solutions. While serverless computing is not at all new, it is getting a lot more attention due to the increasing popularity of DevOps and cloud in general. The promise is that serverless will eventually replace how developers currently create software and how this software is managed in production by operations. This article provides an introductory look at serverless. What exactly is it? And what additional advantages does it offer to the DevOps process?
Part 4 of my series on setting up a SharePoint 2016 development farm in Azure. In this article, we will perform the actual SharePoint 2016 installation. This will be a virtual machine (spVM) in the virtual network we created in Part 2 of this series. We will make spVM a member of the Windows Server AD domain, and then create a new SharePoint farm.
