Windows 10 and the faulty network adapter

Hi sysadmin !

Today I wanted to share a small bug I encountered, and how to solve it.

After all the update, if you lost all your network connection, and in your device manager they are all yellow in error, please check the status of them;

Network Adaptor error: Windows is still setting up the class configuration for this device. (Code 56)


If that happen to you, any new devices you will try to install will fall into the same state.

The Windows update will try to reinstall the driver, but will fail.

The recovery step is easy, check your VPN software installed, one is not Windows Ready for that build.

In my case it was CheckPoint VPN

Uninstall and the bug disappear live, no reboot necessary !

Windows Machine Unknown state on ESX

Today I will share a small tip if your Windows VM get an Unknown state in your ESX.

The problem can be easily fixed by first removing the machine from the inventory, without deleting the files.

3-23-2017 1-15-26 PM

After that you will have to go back into your datastore to re-add the machine back to the inventory, by right-clicking the .VMX file, and select the Add to Inventory option.

After that the state will be green 🙂

RDS: Published App + Dell / Wyse ThinOS + Juniper DHCP relay’s option

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to share a bug I had with some Juniper SRX-100 model and newer, when with the SSG5 it was ok.

The bug appear on the terminal when they boot on a remote subnet (DHCP relay), the DHCP take time to deliever them an IP from the DHCP relay. The problem does not appear in the local subnet where the DHCP server is. The problem appear only on newer tunnel with the Juniper.

After a *lot* of research I found out that the newest JunosOS does not handle correctly custom DHCP’s option when the relay happen…

For reference all the possible option. The important’s one in my case is the 161


The terminal were getting the IP of the server where the root configuration is, where the root configuration to pre-configure the terminal with all my RDS’s option.

The problem found was the Juniper don’t handle correctly an IP into that field, like if the ftp server is named CENTRAL_FTP with the IP, then you must use the short DNS’s name, not the full FQDN.

In my case I changed the DHCP option from to CENTRAL_FTP and maked sure the DNS option was set correctly, and voila, the DHCP’s option started to work flawlessly via my VPN tunnel with the Juniper !

Strange bug it’s, but kinda why I share it, took time to find that culprit !

Saving PerfMon Counter selection

Hi today, my first post of 2019 😀

I will give a small tip today, if for debugging you need to select custom perfmon counter, and you always have to redo the same selection over and over again, the tip is for you.

It’s a way to simply save the perfmon selection, as such you will need to make launch manually mmc.

  1. Launch the Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe)
  2. File -> Add/Remove Snap-ins
  3. Performance Monitor, Select Add, Select OK.
  4. Add your Counters
  5. File -> Save As

After that if you launch that saved applet, you will always have by default the wanted counter.


A small tip, but handy 😀
