    Specific sounds not working on Server 2019

    That's fine. I need to know when an error occurs or the server wants my attention as the server is within earshot of me. I can then get up and go and attend to the error or whatever . This works fine for Win 2012 R2, without any "tweaks". I don't need to run additional programs on my PC or have...

    Specific sounds not working on Server 2019

    I can get recycle bin and device connect, disconnect and fail working. I can also get the System start up sound working via vbscript and a login task. But no other sounds like error, exclamation, asterisk, notify etc. Is this normal for Server? My WIn 2012 R2 the sounds work ok. I compared the...

    Windows Server 2019 Server Manager has bugus 169.254 address

    Ok, I guess I'm going to have to live with this. This address shows ONLY in Server manager as 169.254.x.x,192.168.1.x. I'm having a problem with IIS not showing one website, but that might be a configuration error. And WSUS seems to synchronize fine, but doesn't find any updates for PCs, or...

    Windows Server 2019 Server Manager has bugus 169.254 address

    Apologies for my poor English skills. This address only shows in Server Manager. IPCONFIG does not list this address. I'm not near the PC right now, but I'll send through the output soon.

    Windows Server 2019 Server Manager has bugus 169.254 address

    I don't use VMs. Too many limitations. Instead I have a dedicated PC for testing. As I said in the OP, the motherboard has two onboard NICs, and I have a PCIe 10G adapter installed. I use the 10G as the primary adapter. The onboard NICs are disabled. I have not only disabled the NIC, I also...

    Windows Server 2019 Server Manager has bugus 169.254 address

    Thanks for your response. Actually, I was aware of that. The question is how to get rid of it. When I add roles or features I'm asked to select a server, and I'm presented with two IP addresses. One being this address. At this point, the server is connected to the network. It gets it's IP...

    Windows Server 2019 Server Manager has bugus 169.254 address

    Server manager shows 2 addresses; 192.16.1.x and 169.254.x.x. The first is the valid address, the second I assume is because I always clean install all Windows with the network disconnected. The motherboard, and X299 XPower Gaming AC motherboard has 2 onboard NICS. But I have a 10G PCIe adapter...
