Script to List File Space by Date

Mark Berry February 10, 2017

After setting up a Network Video Recorder recently (using Milestone XProtect Essentials software), I needed a way to add up and compare how much disk space is being used for each day of recordings. Without this information, there is no easy way to see what effect various settings have on disk space (e.g. frames per second, motion sensing, etc.). And because there are often tens of thousands of files per day, Windows Explorer balks at filtering the files by date and summing their space.


Script to Check Current Firewall Profile

As mentioned in this post, I recently had a server unexpectedly show up with a Public firewall profile, which caused database connection issues. I decided to write a little script to confirm that the server has a Domain Profile.


Unlock an Account from the MaxRM Remote Command Line

Mark Berry May 22, 2016

The MaxRM Remote Command Line presumably operates in the context of the MaxRM agent service’s logon, which by default is SYSTEM. It’s unlikely (or perhaps not possible) to lock out the SYSTEM account.

If you can open the MaxRM Remote Command Line on a domain controller (or maybe another domain-joined machine), you can check the status of an account and, if necessary, unlock it as follows:

net user <UserName>

net user <UserName> /active:yes

Account unlock 1

Account unlock 2

Account unlock 3

Here is a Net User command reference.
