Windows 10 with Hyper-V Role and Vagrant Setup

I have been working on a  Udacity project which uses vagrant box for project implementation. I was trying to resolve an issue with vagrant sync folder.

When using the "vagrant up" on a network based on Microsoft Active Directory with MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com, one can use the rsync default type of "smb" but when using a regular network, one has to use the rsync folder type of "rsync" as the "MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com" does not allow the folders to be synced, even if the folders are in public documents folder on the host machine. The “smb” type will always reject the mapping even though it ask you for the “Windows account” username and password when mounting to guest linux machine.

The reverse was the case when using the non-fully qualified domain Active Directory based network. The active directory has moved away from non-fully qualified domains long ago but I just happen to use one which still has the same old implementation.

#wired network with active directory network but system login with microsoft account#config.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", rsync__exclude: ".git/"

#wired network with no active directory network but system login with microsoft accountconfig.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", type: "rsync", rsync__exclude: ".git/"

Hope it helps those who are trying to make this work with Hyper-V.

Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…
