How to create an SRV record in DNS | Windows autodiscover

_service._proto.name. TTL class SRV priority weight port target.service: the symbolic name of the desired service.
proto: the transport protocol of the desired service; this is usually either TCP or UDP.
name: the domain name for which this record is valid, ending in a dot.
TTL: standard DNS time to live field.
class: standard DNS class field (this is always IN).
priority: the priority of the target host, lower value means more preferred.
weight: A relative weight for records with the same priority, higher value means more preferred.
port: the TCP or UDP port on which the service is to be found.
target: the canonical hostname of the machine providing the service, ending in a dot.
An example SRV record in textual form that might be found in a zone file might be the following:_sip._tcp.example.com. 86400 IN SRV 0 5 5060 sipserver.example.com.

book review: Web Programming for Business - David Paper

Doesn't work as an audio book (Moon+ text to speech convert). Sometimes I can get away with programming books being read out aloud but this one included line numbers at the start of each new line when displaying code that just made it a little too difficult, plus there is a lot of code examples. If the author does happen to come across this post, at the start of the book there is a lot of duplication when introducing what tools will be used, it may need a review.

Update to Windows 10 keeps failing

  1. Press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. On the open Command Prompt window copy and paste the commands (all at once)

  3. net stop wuauserv
    net stop cryptSvc
    net stop bits
    net stop msiserver
    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
    net start wuauserv
    net start cryptSvc
    net start bits
    net start msiserver
  4. Wait for the process to complete.
  5. Close the Command Prompt.

Now, try to install Windows Updates again and check if it helps.
