Check if WSUS GPO is applied

The easiest way to find out if the group policy is applied and really changed the right settings you can check it in registry.

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

Add Second Network Card in VMWare

Today I had to add a second virtual network in VMWare. Unfortunately I didn’t find any option first. To do this you need to actually power off the VMWare Host. Then go the settings of the VMWare Host. Click on Add Ethernet Card and confirm everything. Startup OS again.
