Blants (noun) the rants of a blogger

  1. WTF Microsoft what were you thinking ?

    So you want to remove a role from a Windows 2012 server, easy right. Not so easy.

    You cannot remove the VPN access role until you have been into the VPN console and removed the configuration. Really !!!!

    Why not just delete the configuration when you uninstall the role. Thinks are supposed to be made easier not harder.

  2. Install VMWare tools on Windows 2012 with no GUI

    Turns out to be quite easy

    1. Load the tools cd in the usual way.

    2. Change to the d: drive

    3. Run setup64.exe


    Setup will run just fine, a quick reboot and we are good to go.
