Shutdown Event Tracking (XP, Not Server 2003)

Question: Shutdown Event Tracking (XP, Not Server 2003)

Server 2003 has a Shutdown Event Tracker that requires that you "best describe why you want to shutdown the computer". It is on by default, but can be turned off using Group Policy.

Wonderful!

Somewhere along the way, one (and only one) of my XP machines (SP2 + all updates) acquired that same "feature". The Group Policy trick mentioned above has no relevance in XP, so I can't stop this event tracker that way.

Among other things, it makes a remote shutdown impossible (unless I use an RPC terminal). Besides, it's a pain to have to type in a reason (usually "Windows F%#*ed up again") when all I want to do is to shutdown or reboot.

If it runs as a service, I can't find it in either "Services and Applications" or in "Sysinternals Process Explorer"

And another thing!!! I can't find the logged events in the Event Viewer for Application, Security, or System.

If I could find it, I'd drive a stake through its heart. How do I kill the beast?

To prove that I've taken my meds today, here's a screen dump:

Askme nicely and I might explain how I got a screen dump of an XP computer part way into shutdown.

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Shutdown Event Tracking (XP, Not Server 2003)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,I've been looking into trackng the users on the a network - specifically i need to track when users log on and off and if possible when a user locks their computer ? I have been reading up on the process and it looks like it is done through domain security settings - in Audit Policy. At first i thought this could be done through Event Viewer but i soon noticed that only reported on the local machine (the server). So far i've only found my way to "Domain Secuirty Policy" under the Administrator Tools but i can not see how to set or view the logs created ...any help out there ?? or anybody know of better ways to view log on details for domain accounts >? Thanks

Answer:Server 2003 + log on/off tracking

Not sure about Server2003 but 2000 has a security log (as does XP) and is accessed through Event Viewer. You might have to use a Microsoft Management Console snap in or enable logging first though.

Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (An unexpected network error occurred. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

I have done the MS Support site "recommendations", but the Server is pointing to itself for the DNS and the IP address and all that are fine. Not sure why or what is going on here. I can't seem to stop it.

Hi, I have no idea why I am receiving such an error. I just installed Server 2003 Eval for some testing, and whenever I transfer large files (4gigs+), the server keeps on freezing. I don't think there is anything wrong with the hardware because I had windows 2000 server previously installed on this machine and it ran perfectly for 1+ years.

I updated my linksys NIC drivers and Promise IDE controller, so i am not sure what the problem is.

OO yeah, I downloaded all windows updates.

any ideas?

thanks in advance

We are running 7 servers, 5 Windows Server 2000 (one of which is the DC) and 2 Windows Server 2003 (the one generating these errors is a file server). I have no complaints of users not being able to log in and this does not seem to be causing any network problems, but I am curious how I can resolve this issue so that this does not fill up my event logs. If anyone can help, this would be great appreciated.

I recently posted this : http://forums.techguy.org/networking/606462-ads-monitoring.html

It was very understandable, and since then I am now logging any changes made in Active Directory by the "Domain Admins" group.

The only problem I have is that I see all the logs are logged and reside in the Admin Tools>Event Viewer>Secuirty Log.

This log contains ALOT of logs from user access to the domain controller and other network variables.

Is there ANY WAY to make the logging of the "Domain Admins" group for ADS appear in its own "area" or "log" so to speak. This way I dont have to filter through all this stuff in order just to see who and what is going on in ADS?
Thanks
 

Answer:Event Viewer on Server 2003, Question.

Off the top of my head I do not know how. But you can use the filter in view as you already know. Might be a little clunky but it works.

During the boot sequence, member servers (Windows 2003 Server 32 bit edition) fails to properly authenticate to the domain controller - the error text indicates that no domain controller is available to process the login or the network is down. System is a Dell PowerEdge 2650 with Broadcom NetXtreme GE NICs. Found a Technet article about GE NICs indicating some known problem and tried those fixes, also updated the NIC drivers to latest version but neither solution worked. Anyone seen this issue and have any idea how to resolve?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Windows Server 2003 Event ID 5719

Can the member servers ping the domain controller?

Have you tried replacing the NIC? Has this issue just started happening?

Not sure all the steps you have taken.

Have you tried:



Symptoms: when attempting to logon a domain, you keep getting an error that "The system cannot log you on now because the domain "name" is not available." Also, Event viewer shows Event ID: 5719. No Windows NT or Windows 2000 Domain Controller is available for domain <domain name>. The following error occurred: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

Resolutions: One possible cause of this error is that you have run out of buffer space in the NetBT datagram buffer. To resolve this problem, increase the MaxDgramBuffering value from 128 KB to 256 KB. Run Regedt32.exe, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following information:

In the absence of anyone who knows what they are doing, yours truely is trying to overcome a problem with seemingly random restarts on my server PC. Sometimes the server restarts at 12.00 midday but also at other times.
The problem started on 22 Sept, a few hours after the installation of an upgrade to the "Symantec Client Security" small business pack ver 3.0 (this contains 10 license of Symantec Antivisus 9.0.0.338 plus 1 copy of Semantic Service Center v 6.0). This made me very suspicious of the upgrade and I have had since had exhaustive support from them up to the point of them exhausting all the possible problems and pointing me back to Microsoft.
So far I have been in contact with Symantec and Dell (the server PC) and done everything they have advised - all to no effect. Breifly, the list of tasks performed is as follows:-
1) Remove and Reinstall all Symantec software.
2) Update virus definition files & run anti virus scan on the whole PC from safe mode (no viruses found).
3) Change the timing of the AV automatic updates from daily to weekly (Now happens on Sunday).
4) Download and run the Dell 32-bit Diagnostic utility V5061 - all tests pass OK (this includes the memory test, which I see in several other threads, by the way).

Answer:windows 2003 server shutdown

Check your event logs to find out what is failing. Also, windows server 2k3 doesn't like to be restarted directly, and will almost always ask you to give a reason.

Other than that, I'm not too sure. Certainly check those event logs though, they help out a whole lot.

This is a rare and fairly obscure error condition. Memory management issues can be one cause, and adding additional RAM commonly will resolve this version of the problem.

Hi,

I have a set of 5 machines - 2 desktops (one being a thin client and the other to function as a 'server' ) and 3 notebooks. I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

- A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
- Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.
The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites. The standard edition is ideal for customers who do not require the higher-level functionality included in the premium edition

The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPageョ 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.

Hi,

I have a set of 5 machines - 2 desktops (one being a thin client and the other to function as a 'server' ) and 3 notebooks. I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

Answer:BSOD - Event ID 6008 Previous Shutdown was Unexpected - need total shutdown

Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

I have suddenly started getting a slew of SharpShell "0" Application errors in my Event Viewer. These aren't a major problem, but I would like to know exactly what the source application that's causing them is.

There is nothing specific that I can see in the error messages, and whilst I could probably spend time toggling between running applications and the Event Viewer, in hopes of snapshotting the cause and effect, I haven't got the time.

If anyone has information on how to identify the application easily, I'd welcome it. I've spent a lot of time searching for suggestions and relevant stuff, but there don't seem to be any.

I have been mired in trying to hunt down the source of a strange and sudden shutdown, and need more tools. When running my laptop for a bit, it would literally shut off without warning. At first I wrote it off as some loose trace or connection on my motherboard, as the computer would tend to shut off repeatedly after 20 min. or so (and it's old). But there would be times I could run it all day, so I contemplated a software problem. It seemed to be flakier when doing heavy work over wireless (my usual at-home connection), particularly when streaming video or downloading lengthy podcasts on iTunes. Just for grins, I uninstalled and reinstalled Java and flushed all my applets, to no avail. Core temps are well within parameters, and memory checks have turned up OK.

My question is, where do I go from here? I'd love to do a core dump, but I'm not sure if it would tell me definitively. Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Okay what are the steps needed to make the new Windows 2003 server take over all roles that the old 2003 server had? Here is the scenario. I have 1 2003 server this was really only a glorified desktop but it served its purpose. It was the only Server on the domain in a single domain/single site scenario. I now have had a second 2003 server built And I have it added into the domain. I setup all the same functions DNS Server, Domain Controller - Active Directory, File server and print server.

With Server 1 turned off and Server 2's IP changed to the IP of Server 1 the clients are pulling DNS from the PC's in the domain do work fine I.E. log in fine authenticate have full control over the shares they should, have internet browing.

The problem is that Server 2 (only when Server 1 is turned off) is not able to populate all the active directory objects (I mean it shows the item but it is greyed out and gives some errors about a Global Catalog Server not being available). Why am I geting this if both PC's are setup as Active Directory domain controllers?

Please explain this and let me know what else I have to ensure to do before pulling off this original Windows 2003 server so far I have the following done -

Shares from Server 1 recreated on Server 2 - Check
Server 2 is now configured as the DNS Server and functioning just fine - Check
Server 2 has print ques recreated and everyone is printed to it just fine -check

Answer:Added ones Windows 2003 Server want to remove old 2003 server.

This sounds tricky alright. I did the MCSE exams on AD and Windows 2000 server etc, from what I can remember there is only one Global Catalog server in the network. So I assume that when you set up the first server it assumed this role for the network. BUT when you add the second server this finds that there is already a Global Catalog server and does not assume this role itself.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...03/all/techref/en-us/W2K3TR_Ad_dctrl_over.asp
"The first domain controller in a forest is automatically created as a global catalog server. Thereafter, you can designate other domain controllers to be global catalog servers if they are needed."

I would try to promote your 2nd server to a Global Catlog server and see if this resolves the issues.

I am going be moving all the shared folders on my Server 2003 file server to my new Server 2008 VM and want to do it in a way that will allow my clients to be able to access them as if nothing happened. I have been reading about the Windows FSMT (File Server Migration Toolkit) http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=10268 and it will copy over all the permissions and everything but I am not sure how to go about making sure the client will still be able to access the shares especially if they have mapped any of them. If i change the IP and host name of the new machine to the old one after the migration is complete and then shutdown the old server will everything run smoothly? What is the best way to go about doing this?
 

Answer:Migrate Server 2003 file server shares to new machine (Server 2008)

you can do this or you can change DNS so that the old server name points to the new server IP. You need to turn off StrictNameChecking

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters]
"DisableStrictNameChecking"=dword:00000001

this means that you can name the server what ever you want but if you go to the old host name it will also take you to the new server.

Don't forget this needs to be completed and rolled out after the users log off but before they log back in

As old user move on and new users join make sure that you link them to the share via the new host name so eventually the old host name is fased out and you can remove the above reg key.

Hello,

I'm running Outlook 2003 at work, and when I create a meeting in the calendar, the responses are not showing up on the tracking tab. I receive the meeting response messages from recipients, so I know some are acccepting or declining, but when I go to the tracking tab of the meeting details, only a few of the people that have accepted show as accepted. I thought this was supposed to update automatically when people reply?

Anybody seen this before, or have any ideas? Thanks!

I was already told that we need to be getting static IP addresses with Comcast. My question is, will the new static IP addresses have to be configured within SBS server/Exchange server in order to recognize the new one, or will it automatically adjust itself for this?

Any help and suggestions you can provide would be much appreciated.

Well i'm no networking pro but i wouldn't think so, unless your SBS machine is directly connected to the web and does the routing job(s)?
Surely the WAN IP change will only need adjustment on your router and as long as that keeps forwarding mail and such to your server(s) then no adjustment would be needed on the latter?

Googled a bit and didn't find exactly the answer I was looking for so thought I would ask here. I'm not really a "server guy" so to speak although I do have experience, I'm more into the desktop support and networking equipment so Exchange is new to me. We just implemented this server at work and the question has came up from management as to whether or not if we wanted to see the emails employees are sending/receiving. I was able to find the "message tracking center" which allows me to see the sender / recipient and even the subject when I turned that option on, but I don't see where you can see the entire body of the message.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Exchange server email tracking question.

What you can do is journal all incoming and outgoing messages to a box. Create a user called "Archive", and then right-click on the Mailbox Store you want to archive all the users for. Select "Archive all incoming and outgoing messages into this box" and select the "Archive" user.

This will essentially journal, or "Blind Carbon Copy" all the messages to this box. You can then point Outlook to it (but it might get a bit messy because of all the messages, especially if you have a lot of messages).

Where I used to work, we would then point our device at it, it would then get all the e-mail's and we could then search it, put it to tape, etc. It's also how some e-mail archiving solutions get messages, but depends more on the particular appplication and what it's meant to do (archival, review, compliance, etc).

Here's the situation...Every week I ghost copies of our servers. Two Windows 2000 servers and two Windows 2003 servers. Each server has one Western Digital 80GB ide hard drive in a hard drive rack and there is one open rack for inserting the backup hard drives.

I use ghost 2003 on floppies, each is configured to run the ghost backup automatically. When I am ready to ghost, I insert the backup drive, insert the floppy disk and start the server. Ghost loads, backups the drive, and says ghosting is complete. I take the main drive out and replace it with the ghosted copy. The ghost copies for 2000 and 2003 boot up fine, no problems.

(FINALLY TO THE PROBLEM)

When I remove the Ghost copies and reinsert the main drives, the 2003 servers will not boot, but the 2000 servers do. This doesn't happen every week, and sometimes one 2003 server will work and the other won't. When they don't work, the servers post but for some reason don't see the hard drive (this is not the ghost copy). On one of the 2003 servers, I have figured out the problem. When the server won't read the hard drive, I would pull out the drive and reinsert it, fixing the problem.

Recenctly, the other 2003 server wouldn't boot the main drive after it was ghosted. I thought maybe the hard drive bay was bad, so I switched the hard drive out with a spare bay. Reinserted it in the rack and the server still couldn't find the hard drive during boot. If I stick the ghost copy back in... Read more

Well since this is a web/email server I put it here if you think it should go elsewhere let it be moved.

Last night our server IIS service started jumping up and down on our server in all of the hubbub that ensued this service shutting down started turning off other Exchange services on the server as well.

We got it all back up and running by making note of all the services (some which would not restart due to a bunch of errors about executible not being linked to a working service), stopping all the exchange and IIS services, backing up the information store, ripping out IIS in the Add/Remove programs windows components, reboot, reinstall IIS ad components, Reinstall Exchange over the top, Reapplying the service pack and lastly resetting the information store. All was good as far as email use ending and recieving internally and externally works like a champ.

The problem is while OWA was working for us before this tragedy It no longer is working at all. I can go to http:/server and get to the default website so I know parts of IIS is working but when I add in the /Exchange I get a unspecified Error in the top right of the page and when I check the log of the C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 I get a 401 error thats not displaying on my broswer.

Reasons for this range from dust on the heatsink or a fan not spinning to heatsink not being seated correctly.

Hello, I have an x61s running Windows Vista business (32 bit).  I'd like to be able to close the lid while the system is shutting down. That is I initiate a shutdown by selecting "shut down" from the Windows Start menu, and then I close the lid of the notebook, without waiting for the sutdown to complete. Problem is that closing the lid makes the notebook go into sleep mode, even if a shutdown has already been initiated. Does anyone know how I can avoid this, so that the system will continue to shut down even though the lid is closed in the process? That would be most useful, because when I decide to shut down my computer, I want to close the lid immediately.  However, if I close the lid during regular operation (not in a shut down scenario), then I don't want the system to shut down; In this case the system going to sleep following the lid close event is fine. I tried setting a "Lid closed action delay" of 2 minutes (in power manager, global power settings, advanced settings for the "lid closed" event), but this does not seem to work, the system still goes to sleep immediately after I close the lid.Message Edited by astra4 on 12-17-2008 08:22 PM

My 3 week old HP laptop is booting up and shutting down very slowly.Have tried all the usual cleanups and start up program disable stuff but it's as slow as ever. It's got AMD Turion x2 cpu and 2gb Ram surely it shouldn't be this slow?Anybody any idea? Event log keeps coming up with event log 100 on start up and event log 200 on shutdown stating both these processes are taking too long, but how do i fix it???

Hi -

No BSOD dumps are present in the zip file.

When does the system shutdown, e.g., gaming, video, etc...?

I have a front end server that keeps giving me the BSOD. The stop error states " IRQ_Less_than_ and other stop errors but that's the main one. Our front end runs webmail. I am able to login, but EVERY time I try to open a doc, or go into admin utilities or even install SP1 it gives me the BSOD. (Blue Screen) . I really need some help here, I have ran NOD and Norton both with no traces of viri.. Thanks in advance.

Ok, IRQ_LESS_THAN is one part of the BSOD error messages but what matters is the code such as 0x000000AE or something similar. Write down and post the full error code message (should be 4 sets of 0x00000000 with varying numbers and letters)

Hi,

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

Answer:Offline Folder sync issue, Win 7 Client Server 2003 Flie Server.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

Offline created files disappear after re-connect

By adding an additional server to your Microsoftョ Windowsョ Small Business Server 2003 network, you can enable Terminal Server. Using Terminal Server, you can host your users' desktops. This can save your organization money by allowing you to extend the life of your desktop hardware.
After you have installed Windows Small Business Server 2003 and have completed the To Do List, you can join an additional server to your network and configure it as a terminal server.

I want to upgrade a client's peer-to-peer network to an actual 2003 domain. I am comparing Server 2003 Standard Edition with Small Business Server. I thought that Small Business Server was Standard Edition with a few extras like Exchange Server, which I don't need. However, SBS is quite a bit less expensive than Standard, which surprises me. I haven't yet found a side-by-side comparison on Microsoft's website and was hoping some of you could help.

Why is SBS cheaper? What's missing that is included in Standard Edition? Which version should I recommend to my client? It's a small network that's unlikely to ever grow beyond 5 clients, if that's any help.

One important point is that we need full Terminal Services functionality. Are there any limitations on Terminal Services with SBS? I plan to set this client up with some remote access via Terminal Services Advanced Client.

Thank you for your help.

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

I have an existing Windows 2000 server and am going to replace it with a server running Windows 2003 Server R2.

I would like to know the best way of doing that. Most of the docs I have seem talk about it as though you're keeping the same server hardware in place. That's not what I'm trying to do.

So, you don't have to go through all the steps I need to do. If you could just point me to the correct doc and give some helpful hints I would appreciate it.

Ok, Hers the story; I purchased for Dell a PowerEdge 420SC with the windows 2003 SBE server, now as you may know if you use the OS Install CD thay provided with the server on any other dell computer it would install, with no serial nessesery.

Now I have a second Domain Controller (DC) that I want to add to my current network and the 2003SBE is the only one curently functionig as the DC.

So I went and i made the second server another DC in the existing network, now the 2003 SBE is complaing about licensing violations, and it shuts itself down and on top of all that is wont sync the domain.

So as i see it i need to "upgrade" this SBE server, and i dont see how i can do that with out haveing to re-do the entire domain (20 users/20 computers) and i dont need to go computer computer and transfer setting for 20 user and computers.

so what i want to know is there any way for me to change the SBE server into a STANDERD server?
 

Answer:Windows Server 2003 Small Business Server (DELL) - Changing the licensing to standert

Wait maybe I知 reading things wrong here but did you install the 2nd server with the same disk as the first server? There can only be one server running the sbs version of 2003 on a network everything else must be installed with a regular windows 2003 disk. If you installed the 2nd server with SBS as well then you need to promote the first server back to primary controller and then you will have to bring down that server and reformat with a regular 2003 disk

Windows Small Business Server is a single-domain solution that is not intended to be integrated with other Windows-based domains. You are not permitted to establish explicit trusts to other Microsoft Windows NT-based domains or to Active Directory service domains. Also, Windows Small Business Server does not let you create child domains. The computer that is running Windows Small Business Server must have all operations master roles and must be at the root of the Active Directory forest.



What I think happened is that when you brought up the 2nd server it grabbed the master roles and since they both NEED to be master because they're both sbs editions there's a problem. SBS is a good deal for a small business but you have to be aware of its restrictions.

Anyway before i go any further I値l wait on more details on how everything is setup maybe I知 looking into stuff that doesn't apply

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I don't know if this is the correct forum to ask this, but I will take a shot. When I started my new job last year as a teacher, I also took over the IT department. The former guy who ran it was an Idiot (He is no longer employed for that reason) For whatever reason, he thought it would be a good idea to put Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2000 box running as a GC/DC. We also have another box that is running Windows 2000 (GC/DC). About 6 months ago, I upgraded Exchange2000 to Exchange 2003., this upgrade went pretty seemlessly. Now however, I face a dilemma. I have no idea how to go abotu doing this.

Microsoft has been no help, I have searched far and wide for a solution, but to no aval....

So now I am asking here: What is the correct process for upgrading a windows 2K domain to a 2K3 domain?

Our Layout:

Machine #1: HP/Compaq Server, Windows 2000 SP4 AD(DC/GC), Duel 2.4GHz Xeon, 2GB of Ram, blah blah

Machine #2: HP/Compaq Server, Windows 2000 SP4 AD (GC/DC), Exchange 2003 w/ SP2

Other machines are running Windows 2003 (Member Servers) and OS X Server (10.4)

Is there a specific method to this? Or can I just do a str8 upgrade to both boxes?

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Anthony
 

Answer:Windows 2000 Server to 2003 Server Upgrade w/ Exchange

Actually, I always find it a good thing to have two GC servers, so that if one goes down, people can still login. The only time it causes load problems is when there are scads of directory objects. As for an upgrade, I hate them, but they do occasionally work. 2003 is actually quite good at upgrading, Microsoft wanted to make this product accessible for everyone who was still running NT4, so the migration tools are much better than in 2k.

Worse comes to worse, make sure you have triple backups, a full weekend, pop the cd in and go.

Hi Guys
can anybody tell me how I would connect xp to windows 2003 server as a network printer so I can send fax from xp to windows server 2003 and I want windows server 2003 be able to send and receive fax then I want xp view faxes from windows server 2003. Can anybody tell me how I would be able to set this up?
 

Answer:xp to windows server 2003 fax server (network printer setup)

You need to add Fax Services to the server.

start -> control panel -> add/remove programs -> windows components.
Make sure Fax Services is checked. If not, check it and install the service.
Then follow the wizard to share the Fax printer on the network.
Once that is done, on your XP clients, go to \\servername or surf to the server via My Network Places and install the fax printer.

That should be all you need to do.

I have been encountering slow shutdown times on my desktop recently. I looked in the event logs to try and find some clue but they were not that helpful to the less than technically minded

1: EVENT_TCPIP_TCP_CONNECT_LIMIT_REACHED
I had a lot of the above that were listed both as information and warning

2: also W32time came up several time as both info and warning

3: NetBT came up several times - with
"the name MSHOME could not be registered on the interface with IP address xxx, the machine with the ip address yyy did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.

The only hardware I have installed recently is a Belkin wireless card (whose problems I have posted elsewhere ) This may have something to do with it but I am not sure. Briefly my setup is a wireless laptop (no problems) and a wired desktop (which has been re-configured to run on wireless)

I am running Windows XP pro with SP2 on an AMD system with 2 gigs ram

I have run several virus checks and I run spybot regularly, I have a belkin router to connect through to my blueyonder broadband.

Any advice?

I moved this post from general discussions where it got completely buried.

I'm sure every one of us is getting these errors in windows 10

This appears to be a general issue with windows 10, I always get the following errors on shutdown:

The VMware Workstation Server service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

The User Data Access_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

The User Data Storage_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

The Contact Data_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

The Sync Host_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

I suspect the Event ID 7031 Service Control Manager errors occurred initially in windows 8.1 upgrade and was resolved by Microsoft. It looks like the problem is back especially with the new windows 10 services (with the exception of the VMWare Workstation server)

I suspect this error also affects shutdown/reboot times.

Ideas anyone how to resolve this
