Open a CMD prompt in LocalSystem context

There is another method to access a CMD prompt in LocalSystem context.

“In the Windows login screen, you are allowed to turn on sticky keys or high contrast using the hotkeys (Shift x 5 OR Alt+Shift+PrintScreen). Attempting to turn on either one with launch the sethc.exe file. Adding the provided registry will tell Windows that you want to run cmd.exe as a debugger for sethc.exe but the problem is Windows does not check if it is a valid debugger. So whenever you try to launch sticky keys or high contrast in the Windows 7 login screen, you will run the command prompt instead.”

How to create a two NIC Linux VM in Azure?

This post briefly explains the way to create a two NIC Linux VM in Microsoft Azure.

The setup can not be created through the Azure web UI. Also, after creating the two NIC VM,
you are unable to see the second interface’s settings through the Azure web UI.

Create a virtual network e.g. my-net-0 and add a new address space (10.0.0.0/20).
Then add a new subnet e.g. my-net-0-0 (10.0.0.0/24).

Click add address space and Azure allocates a new address space for you (10.0.16.0/20).
Add a subnet and Azure will give you the subnet 10.0.16.0/24. Rename the subnet to my-net-0-1.
