Changes to server configuration option remote access are not supported in SQL Database Managed Instances

Having just set up our new SQL Server Managed Instance, restored a sample database for testing, and run Azure’s vulnerability assessment, it produces this high risk finding:

VA2120 – Features that may affect security should be disabled

The more SQL Server features and services you enable, the larger its
surface attack area becomes, making your system more vulnerable to
potential attacks. These fetures should be disabled unless it is
absolutely needed in this environment.

Remediation Script:

EXECUTE sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1; RECONFIGURE WITH
OVERRIDE; EXECUTE sp_configure 'remote access', 0; RECONFIGURE;
EXECUTE sp_configure 'show advanced options', 0; RECONFIGURE;

Turning to Google before doing anything, I found this Microsoft Docs article stating that (emphasis mine):

This topic is about the “Remote Access” feature. This configuration option is an obscure SQL Server to SQL Server communication feature that is deprecated, and you probably shouldn’t be using it.

Can anyone therefore please provide some clarity on the following?

  1. Why is it enabled given Microsoft’s description?
  2. Does it need to be enabled in Azure SQLMI? Because…
  3. When I run the remediation script I get this error:

Changes to server configuration option remote access are not supported in SQL Database Managed Instances.

8 – Import single view configuration fail – layout_builder__layout will not exists after import

I have Drupal 8.9.13 and I want to export/import single views configuration to other Drupal 8.9.13. I can select single view to export, but when I import it I get the next error:

The configuration core.entity_view_display.node.page.default depends on the configuration of field.field.node.page.layout_builder__layout that will not exists after import.

This is one of the views I want to import. The problem happens with all views:

I don’t use layout builder templates. field_documento is a field in the user profile. How could I solve this issue?.

SQl Server log shipping monitor security configuration and update problems

I’m setting up log shipping between instances A and B with the instance C as a monitor. The shipping itself is working fine but I’m somehow unable to make the monitoring work. The log shipping status on C is not up to date – the reports show that no backups and restores are performed. The respective reports on A and B are perfectly up to date, showing that everything is OK. The problem is pretty much obviously in the monitor connections configuration/permissions.

SQL Agents on A and B run as NT ServiceSQLSERVERAGENT.
The SA accounts on A, B and C are disabled.

  • using impersonation with A and B machine domain accounts added to sysadmins on C – doesn’t help
  • using custom SQL logins which are also sysadmins on A, B and C – doesn’t help and also keeps switching to SA login in the monitor connection window as well as in the linked server configuration on A and B

What can be the root cause? Is using SA account a requirement?
TIA

rooting – Is there a way to backup Samsung’s OneUI configuration?

I recently set up the home screen and app drawer of my Samsung Galaxy A70. The apps in my app drawer are organised into folders, some apps are hidden and some default apps are disabled. My home screen is completely empty.
I would like to switch to a new Samsung phone and automate the process of setting up the home screen and app drawer. Is there a way to backup my OneUI configuration? Can I find the OneUI configuration files (or something similar) somewhere on my phone? I am open to rooting the phone.

networking – Network Configuration Gone – Unable to Reset or Apply Netplan

I’m not sure what’s going on or what happened; I run a machine headless Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, it performed an update sometime overnight and when I logged in it prompted me that it needed a reboot – so I did, however, it didn’t appear to come back up.

After attaching a monitor to it I discovered it was running but the network interface was none functional. Not even appearing actually, like it was just deleted or removed. I’ll try to share as much information here – but I’m just not sure what could be wrong and I honestly don’t know where else to look.

After trying everything below, I still have no internet connection – and what’s worse, after a reboot the only way to get an IP address on my LAN to allow an SSH is by using:

I am only able to get the default via 192.168.1.1 dev enp3s0 portion to appear after running $ sudo ip route add default via 192.168.1.1

$ sudo netplan –debug try

This is about all the information I have. I’m just not sure what went wrong, where, how, when.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

iis 10 – Why can’t I edit IIS XML configuration files with gvim on Windows 10?

When I try to open C:Windowssystem32inetsrvconfigschemaIIS_schema.xml for example on Windows 10 Pro, build 20H2, I can always open it in notepad, but if I open it in gvim (a real editor) it pretends like the file doesn’t exist.

I’ve even run gvim as a domain administrator and it still makes like it doesn’t exist. I’ve never seen this sort of behavior before, it’s really strange.
