Help! I lost my config menu in Hyper-V!!??

If you are like me and recently trying out the new version of Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V everything was working great. I like the command line interface and the ability to log in and configure things about the server from a very low level without having to install all other kinds of “features” in the operating system.

That is until one day I came in and logged in and all I found was a black command line and a blinking cursor. Before I panicked i did some research (ie. googling) and found out that if you do lose this screen it can be easily brought back up from the command line by typing:

sconfig.cmd and then pressing enter…

After that, you are back and are able to configure your Hyper-V machine locally!!! 🙂


Hope this helps clear the confusion. After I originally read the first technet article at

I missed this originally and was lost. Enjoy!


October CU SharePoint 2010 – Danger Will Robinson!

Lately I have not had a chance to stay on top of the updates that are getting released in SharePoint, but I definitely wanted to let everyone know about the following issue related to the October Cumulative Update.

You can read more about on the SharePoint Team Blog here:

Several users have reported that it causes issues with the User Profile Synchronization in 2010. So take heed! If you have applied this, beware!!

For those of you currently on 2007, there does not seem to be any issues with the CU at this time.

Ready, Set, Go!!

Indeed. Today is a great day! I plan on writing technical articles and trying to share my knowledge that I run across in work and through others in my daily life. The focus of this blog will be professional in nature, but we may steer into the strange and unusual every now and then.

Next I plan on making a sort of vision statement as my next post. So stay tuned for all the techy goodness. The FDA requires at least 8 servings of technology a day, so let’s get to stocking up!!
