List of the updates including in "ShadowProtect version 3.5.2" (19 March 2010)!!

• A workaround has been added to resolve a system-induced blue screen (BSOD) which occurred on Windows Server 2008R2 with Hyper-V at the start of a ShadowProtect backup.

• A fix has been made to eliminate a system-wide hang/deadlock which could occur on Windows Server 2008 at the start of a ShadowProtect backup.

• A fix has been made to eliminate a hung ShadowProtect backup job which could occur on Windows Server 2008 when at the start of a ShadowProtect backup.

• A fix has been made to resolve rare situations where VDiff (the fast incremental tracking) could not be enabled for some volumes.

• A fix has been made to the ShadowProtect NT service (ShadowProtectSvc.exe) so that when it is automatically woken up from sleep mode it will take the next backup if a scheduled backup was missed while the machine was asleep. In versions prior to 3.5.2, the missed backup would only be taken if the machine was manually woken up, but not when it was automatically woken up.

• A fix has been made to …

How can I check the version of my System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 installation?

There are now several different versions of SCCM 2007—RTM, SP1, SP2, R2, and R3. If you launch the SCCM administration console and select Help, About System Center Configuration Manager, you can check the version. The versions and their numbers are:

•RTM - 4.00.5931.0000
•SP1 - 4.00.6221.1000
•SP2 - 4.00.6487.2000
To check if you're using R2 or R3, open the properties of the SCCM site. The General tab once again shows the version, but also shows if R2 or R3 are installed, as shown here:

SFC (System File Checker)

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file. System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker. If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc /scannow, the sfc /scanonce, or the sfc /scanboot commands to repair its contents.

How to determine the page file size in 64bit servers?

The 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows XP can support more RAM than the 32-bit versions of these products. When lots of memory is added to a computer, a paging file may not be required. When you use the Pages/sec counter to measure paging file use, the value that is returned may not be accurate. To obtain an accurate measurement of paging file use, you must also use other performance counters. You can use System Monitor measurements to calculate the size of the paging file that your computer requires.

Windows Domain Controllers and DFS Replication, Certificate and ADAM/LDS Servers are not supported without a configured pagefile. Because the algorithm the LSASS database cache depends on the "transition pages repurposed/second" perfmon counter, a pagefile is required to make sure that the database cache is capable to release memory if memory is requested by other services or applications.
