There are times with older applications when you need to give users local administrator rights, or you feel like the user is competent enough to install his own applications in a small work environment. In a elevated command line run
net Localgroup administrators"DOMAIN\USERNAME"/add
let’s say you need to add everyone, I wouldnt recomend adding everyone so you could use the authenticated users group
net Localgroup administrators"authenticated users"/add
again, security gurus will probably yell at me for this; but I live in a real world where security is a two edge sword. When it comes to aging equipment; I had to use the above command on a system to allow a wide format printer dating back to the 80s to connected via a special ISA card so it could run its proprietary dlls files each time a user would connect remotely. A twisted situation.
The execution of scripts is disabled on this system
PowerShell Script cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system. Please see “get- help about_signing” for more details.
If you launch the command Get-ExecutionPolicy you will see that the default policy is set to Restricted and this is by design. There are 5 values to choose from: 1. Restricted: no scripts will be executed 2. Unrestricted: all scripts will be executed 3. RemoteSigned: all scripts you created yourself will be run, all scripts downloaded from the internet will need to be signed by a trusted publisher 4. AllSigned: all scripts, including your own, will need to be signed by a trusted publisher 5. Default: = Restricted (unless you change the default value to something else)
Simply type in this command in a Administrator enabled PowerShell window.
And that’s it! Your scripts can be run. I’ll be posting soon about how to set up your own “trusted publisher” so that we can secure our PowerShell environment as much as possible.

Introduction Welcome to the installation Wizard of Adobe ColdFusion 9, Adobe recommends that you exit from all running applications before proceeding. This is more then a recommendation, some applications may cause the installation to fail.

Install Type If you do not have a serial number, select either 30-day trial or Developer Edition. NOTE: Developer Edition only allows 2 CPU’s connected at a time. Your SQL server and if your a black hat, the Reverse Proxy HTML Wrapper. If your a White Hat, then it will be your workstation computer.
Installer Configuration Your choice; Server Configuration, Enterprise Multi-Server configuration & J2EE Configuration. In my step-by-step example I am using the Server Configuration. If you expect server growth I would recommend Enterprise Multi-Werver configuration.
Select Installation Directory Select the directory where you want to install Adobe ColdFusion 9. The default directory is C:\ColdFusion9
Configure Web Servers / Websites If IIS is NOT installed on your system the “All IIS websites” will not be an option. You will however have the option for Apache and SUN’s version of a web server. Or if you are installing the Developer Edition you have the option for a built in web server. I recommend Apache/Linux install. However, In my installation I will be using IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008 Standard.
Choose Adobe ColdFusion 9 Administrator Location Select the location of the web root for Adobe ColdFusion 9. This is where the installer places the Adobe ColdFusion 9 Administrator. This directory must be the web root for one of the websites to be configured for use with Adobe ColdFusion 9. If configuring an IIS website, you must set scripts to be executable. Default directory: C:\inetpub\wwwroot
Administrator Password Enter the password that you will use to restrict access to the ColdFusion Administrator. *This field is required.
Enable RDS The ColdFusion Remote Development Servers (RDS) lets developers using Adobe tools remotely connect to this server for development purposes. RDS is required for Line Debugging, Report Builder, and Dreamweaver Extensions. YOU WILL WANT THIS. Unless this is a production server and you have already debugged and tested your applications.
