Warning: Before making any registry changes or system change make sure you have backed up you system and registry.

The issue:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Tcpip

TCP/IP failed to establish an outgoing connection because the selected local endpoint was recently used to connect to the same remote endpoint. This error typically occurs when outgoing connections are opened and closed at a high rate, causing all available local ports to be used and forcing TCP/IP to reuse a local port for an outgoing connection. To minimize the risk of data corruption, the TCP/IP standard requires a minimum time period to elapse between successive connections from a given local endpoint to a given remote endpoint.

The fix:

  • First use TCPview or netstat to view how many ports and connections are in use

Fix 1:

You can check the registry and via the command line to see the dynamic port pool size. And change it as need be.

To do it via registry key view HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\MaxUserPort and see what that value is set to. Note this key might not exist you can create it if need be. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938196.aspx. To do this as command line “netsh int ipv4 show dynamicport tcp” you can see more examples at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929851/en-us if you are running out of ports you can use the command to increase the pool or change the reg key to complete this task.

Fix 2:

This might also be caused by the connection wait delay, if you have this problem you will find lots of connections in a time_wait status in TCPview or netstat.

If this is your problem you can adjust the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\TcpTimedWaitDelay http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938217.aspx to resolve this issue. Note again this key might not exist

VERITAS Storage Foundations error V-76-58628-3

When tring to write a disk signiture to a new disk and you get error V-76-58628-3

If you click on the blue link in the error it will take you to symantec’s site and tell you to restart, well that did not work for me.

First look at your new disk and see if it looks like the below screenshot.

If your disk looks like the second one with a “blue i” then your disk is offline you need to online the disk to make it look like the top disk from the screenshot.

Then you should be able to write your disk signature after you online the disk.

This was tested in Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

How to hide a windows account from the login screen list

NOTE: Make sure your system is backed up before making changes to your registry!

  1. From Run launch regedit.exe
  2. Move to key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList” NOTE: that most likely SpecialAccounts and UserList will not be there so just create two new sub-keys.
  3. Under UserList create a new DWORD (32bit) Value, and name it the userID of the account you want hidden (this is not the display name)
  4. Make sure the value is set to 0 (this should be the case by default)
  5. To enable the account again just change the value to 1
  6. Log off or restart for this setting to take effect.
