Exchange Server 2016 services not started

The Exchange Server 2016 services were not started in my proof of concept server.

I put the follow commands in a batch file to start them at one go. Of course, this is not the option for real production server. For piloting, this maybe the fastest way.

net start MSExchangeADTopology

net start MSExchangeAntispamUpdate

net start MSComplianceAudit

net start MSExchangeCompliance

net start MSExchangeDagMgmt

net start MSExchangeEdgeSync

net start MSExchangeFrontEndTransport

net start MSExchangeHM

net start MSExchangeIS

net start MSExchangeMailboxAssistants

net start MSExchangeMailboxReplication

net start MSExchangeDelivery

net start MSExchangeSubmission

net start MSExchangeNotificationsBroker

net start MSExchangeRepl

net start MSExchangeRPC

Where to find a Group Policy Management

In Windows Server 2016 I can no longer find the Group Policy Management as mentioned in

In Windows Server 2016 I open the Server Manager. In the Server Manager, go to Tools then choose Group Policy Management. That is how I get it. Probably there is another easier way.

70-764 Administering a SQL Database Infrastructure passing

I just passed this exam today. There is a lot of questions regarding failover, AlwaysOn, Database Audit.

There is not much help but you can try the It will probably help you with 20-25% of the questions.

There were 12 Yes/No questions in my exam I most of the answers I put No except the one I was very sure the answer was Yes.

Do more long case studies from that was the area with more of the questions for my exam.

The class room training is pretty useless because it does not cover failover setup, AlwaysOn setup and so.

Hope prepaway,com will not go off very soon.

Power BI find Percentage on 2 columns in 2 different table

This post is showing how to find an average if you have sum of 2 columns in 2 different tables.

For example, I have Sales 1 in Sheet 1.

I have Sales 3 in Sheet 2.

You will think to create a Measure to SUM the 2 columns as some of the posts show you. DON’T, it does not give you error but the figure will never be correct.

You need to create New column not measure but using the same SUM function.

CSales = SuM(Sheet1[Sale1]) + SUM(Sheet2[Sale3])

Then I create a measure like the one below.

Measure = (SUM(Sheet1[Sale1]) + SUM(Sheet2[Sale3])) / SUM(Sheet1[CSales])

This may not be a perfect way but it works for me after trying a lot of methods the Internet suggested.
