You attempt to copy a file via FTP to your Cisco ASA and receive the error "(No more processes)"

You attempt to copy a file via FTP to your Cisco ASA and receive the error "(No more processes)".  This cryptic error COULD just mean 'file not found', when the file name isn't present this error is returned.  Not sure why Cisco couldn't tell you this, but this is the message you would receive.

Allow users to change their expired passwords via OWA.

One common scenario is that user's passwords expire when they are out of town or remote, and they are unable to change their password.  Starting with Exchange 2007 Service Pack 3 (and 2010/2013), users have the ability to change their expired password via OWA if you set a registry key to turn this functionality on.

 - On your Exchange CAS server, open regedit and navigate
to HLKM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange OWA

 - Create a DWORD value called ChangeExpiredPasswordEnabled, and set the value data to 1.  If it already exists, simply change the value data to 1.

 - Close regedit, open the command prompt and type 'iisreset /noforce' to restart IIS.

Exchange 2013- Blank ECP / OWA screen, event ID 15021 HttpEvent in system event log.

You have an exchange 2013, after some unknown event nobody can get to OWA or ECP (or any other IIS based resource including outlook.)  Instead, users get a login screen then a blank page.  In the system event log, you see hundreds of id 15021 on the source HttpEvent that say “An error occurred while using SSL configuration for endpoint  The error status code is contained within the returned data.” 

-          Open the Command Prompt
-          Run-
netsh http show sslcert
-          This will show the certs, copy and paste this information into notepad.  Under     IP:port   :, note the certificate hash and application ID.
-          Run this command-  (Yes, I know there is no :444 listed in the output from the earlier command.)
netsh http delete sslcert ipport=
-          Run this command.  Replace certhas with the certificate hash and appid with the application ID you saved in notepad.
netsh http add sslcert ipport= certhash=123123123123123 appid="{123123123123-1231231235}"

-          Reboot the server.
