As I am constantly dealing with log file management on my servers, I have always relied on batch files to use PowerShell commandlets to move log files. And then I had to run other processes to manage the log files in a destination area.
I found this handy PowerShell commandlet called Compress-Archive. You will need PowerShell version 5.0.
The link to the official documentation.
Anyway, this little routine has saved me some steps and with my log file management issues.
I simply zip files with and have the destination path in the same line.
I used example #3. (This is not my exact script that I wrote, just showing the example.)
Compress-Archive -Path C:\Reference\* -Update -DestinationPath C:\Archives\Draft.Zip
I hope this tid-bit helps all of my fellow techies out there.
I was in need of getting detailed network information in a development/DMZ environment with heightened security. In particular, Domain Controller information. I did a lot of NSLOOKUP’s and PING’s to the gateway and dns servers to see what name(s) returned. I got zero results. (Very tight security. 🙂 )
[box type=”info”]My buddy pointed me to the command GPRESULT.exe. It’s a built-in executable for Windows operating systems.
I was able to get a detailed report of the NIC card and the network settings. A great tool to use![/box]

Anyway, when I went to list view; the button to “Open with Access” was greyed out. I went into my settings and tried to create a new view with Access. It wasn’t there either.
- So I opened up Access 2010.
- Then chose the OPEN feature.
- What is cool is in the drop down area; there was a item called, “SharePoint Foundation Services.”
- I copied and pasted the URL to the SharePoint calendar that I needed to update…….
And then *POOF!* *MAGIC!* I can then update data via Access.
