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.

I need a non complicated tutoial on write and permissions and file sharing.

I have created some test groups and users. I have made a few file shares and given writes to those files for one user only to test the access.

However I can get into the files that I have set to a different user only.

So anyway I am confused and need help.

Ok, I posted earlier that I needed a solution to my problem, well I found one. I got the eval version of windows server 2003 (180 days to use it), my school is looking into purchasing a license as I type this.

Anyway, onto my problem. I have everything set up and running, DHCP server, DNS server, Active Directory, etc. Plus I have all the users created. Everyone can login (I have mandatory profiles set) and do their work and that's fine. However, here's my problem, I created a share directory called "Users", this directory contains all the user folders (by their full name, so "John Smith" for example). I have set the correct permissions and everything (I believe) but people get an error everytime they try and save, something along the lines of permissions not being set or the disk being read only.

Just to be clear, if person X is logged in, and they try and get into person Z's folder they get access denied (and vice versa )

I have each folder set (under the security tab of the properties box) so that "Administrators" and that particular user have FULL access to that folder, it's subfolder, and it's contents (on the advanced tab I have deselected the inherit permissions thing).

So any ideas on why they can't save in their designated folder?

share permissions take the most resterictive between ntfs permissions and sharing permissions no? make sure you have them configure correctly to allow the onwers to write to their dir.

Hi all,

The server 'seems' to be operating fine but when I check the stats for the server (net stats server) I noticed there are over 300 permission violations. How can I find out what these permission violations are? There is nothing in the Event Viewer.

I have just set up a computer with Windows 7, and I'm apparently missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything works great. I then joined the computer to a 2003 Server domain. Everything still appeared to work fine. However, when I log into the domain on the Windows 7 computer, I don't have the correct permissions on the local machine.

I can access the domain. The login works fine. There are no errors. However, when I try and access anything on the local drive, like explorer.exe, it tells me that I don't have the permissions to access it. I can run some programs, in some directories (like Program Files), but if I try and run anything in the Windows directory, I don't have permission. I can access things on the domain, and I can even use Firefox to view the contents of domain machines, mapped network drives, and even the local C drive. I just cannot run anything that's in the local Windows directory.

I can access the local drive using either the domain administrator account, or the local machine administrator account. However, using either of those accounts, I'm not allowed to change permissions on that folder! I can see that the folder is set as read only, but when I attempt to remove the read-only flag (using either account), it tells me that I don't have permission to do that.

I've also tried to give the domain user administrator permission on the local machine, but that has no effect either. That part really con... Read more

Answer:Windows 7, 2003 Server Domain, Local Permission

This thread at TechNet seems to relate to your problem. It mentioned something about you need to set the password the same as the Administrator's password of the Windows 2000 system. And also you need to change the NTLM authentication level in Windows 7. Even though you are on server 03 this may still apply.

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 am running a smallish network/domain - with workstations running win 7 pro and Office 2003. The server is running SBS 2011. All PCS have AVG installed.
The problem occurs intermittently (as far as I can tell, but it might be happening more often than I think - but we just aren't doing work that highlights the issue everyday), but if it starts happening one day - it seems to continue that day and is reproducible. And seems to happen on all/most workstations - regardless of whether the workstations are standard users or network administrators on SBS 2011.

Especially word 2003 comes up with the error:
"Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error \\drp001\company\temp\test.doc" (and the document will change its name to a .tmp file - there is no problem saving to the workstation directly).
This occurs if a new document is saved to the server (on several different directories that I try), or if I try to edit and resave an existing document.

If I save a new document with excel 2003, I get the error:
"The document was saved successfully, but Excel cannot re-open it because of a sharing violation. Please close the document and try to open it again." There seems to be no error when saving an existing excel file.

Hello, I'm looking for some suggestions. I have a Windows Server 2003 File Server which employees use to store data, as of right now everything is being backed up on tape (Every night). I would like to eliminate the tape and backup on to another Windows 2003 machine(everynight), i would also like the restore process (if a file goes missing ..etc) to be somewhat easy if possible. As well the fileserver holds around 500 GB, would that be too much to transfer each night? would i have to compress it?

Thanks
Matt
 

Answer:Windows Server 2003 File Server - Backup

If you have another server, you can do weekly full backups of the 500gb (maybe on a Sunday?) and then each night back up anything thats changed during the day.
Do you have Shadow Copies enabled? that lets users restore files without having you look through the backups
I had a setup like you want, setup at one customer that didnt want to spring for a tape drive, it worked fine for him and he didnt have any problems. I did make sure to have him put the server being backed up to in the safest location in the building in case of a fire or something. We used KReplicator from karenware, it keeps 2 locations in sync and is easy to setup.

I have server 2003 running and I want to share some folders. When I try to access the shared folders from another computer I get an Access is denied message. I want it to ask me for a username and password instead of just telling me I do not have permission to use this network resource. Is this something I set up on the server machine or on another machine that is simply trying to access it? Or do I need to be on a domain to do this somehow? I'm hoping its just some checkbox that says "prompt user for password" but thats unlikely.

Anyways, a little more info may or may not be relevant. Server 2003 is acting like a router. have 2 nics, one to cable modem, one to a hub with my other computers on it. Using the internet connection sharing. I have 3 folders, public, private and incoming. I have 2 users, Troy and Users. Troy has read write and full control on all 3 folders. Users has read on public. Has read, write, full control on incoming. And no access to private. If i add 'everyone' to a folder and set permissions to read, i can access the files.

I just installed thismorning and I dont know a whole lot about 2003. I'm trying 2003 so I can allow more than 10 connections.

Thats probably more than you needed, but anyways, any help is appreciated.
 

Answer:Server 2003 File sharing

On the Windows2003 server, you need to create the same user accounts and passwords that are being used on the Workstations. Then make sure those users have acess to whatever directories are being shared.

As far as the number of concurrent computer connections, that would be determined by the licenses when you first installed it.

First of all, I have a computer running server 2003 and a workstation running XP Pro SP2. I have the firewalls off on the workstations, and it is on the same workgroup as the server...all network connections are fine. I can browse each computer but I cannot get the some folders to grant permission to certain users.

On the server, under Computer Management and Local User and Groups, I have added a user with the same login and password as that of the workstation. When the workstation browses the network and the folder on the server, it can only read...No write, delete, etc. Under the shares tab of the shared folder on the server, I added the user, even the users group that it belongs to and gave full access. Unfortuntately, that did not do much....I still get no access to the shared folder. Now the wierd thing is, if I delete the user account on the server, and then try to connect with the workstation...I will get a login and password box. Now I enter in the user and pass for the administrator account on the server, and bam....I get full complete access. The administrator is given full rights on the shared folder under the same tab that I gave the newly created user. In fact, I made the new user I created a part of the Administrators group and added that group to the folder, however I still cant get access with the workstation login.

Hi. We are using MS Exchange Server 2003 running on POP3 Clients. Our current DB size is 33GB (31GB .STM file and 2GB .EDB file).

Question: How do we reduce our database size especially the .STM file?

We did delete unnecessary emails on every users mailboxes, delete unnecessary users mailbox on the store, and do also offline defragmentation.

But after offline defragmentation, database size seems untouched and result to the same size as before.

Is there anything I missed to perform to fully reduce our exchange database size?

any help would be highly appreciated.

Strange problem, involving a DOS (command) prompt: We run a legacy clipper database on our 2003 web server, with no problems. I just added a new user, setting her up as an administor (using the wizard). If I log on as that user and open a command prompt, I can see the directory and file I want on the server... "dir xxx.dbf" shows the correct file. But, I cannot open that file! The clipper database can't open it, and I can't open it using dbase and a "use" command. If I log back on the same computer as another user, it all works just fine.

Any ideas as to why I can see a file, but can't open it??!!
 

Answer:DOS file access on 2003 Server network?

Sounds like the new user doesn't have access rights to the file. Perhaps she only has read access?

Hi guys.

We used to have a quite old Active Directory server with windows 2000.

So we bought a new PC, installed 2003, did the upgrading of the domain in the 2000 server, then we promoted the 2003 server to AD controller and made it a global catalog.

But for some reason (obviously we missed a step) this new server cannot take full control of the domain; I can't, for instance, edit the Domain Controller Security Policy. It just throws the following error: "Failed to open the group policy object. You may no have appropiate rights. Details: the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted".

I didn't remove the other server from any of the options in active directory management in administrative tools just in case I need some more features of AD to finish the migration to 2003.

We actually DON'T need at all the 2000 server, so I need the 2003 server to handle everything AD related by itself.



Another problem we have here is that the server looses connectivity.
It's weird, it just cannot connect to any IP, can't even ping a LAN IP.
It's using a fixed IP since it's a DNS server.

So basically the second problem is that the server cannot connect anywhere, either Internet or LAN, by IP or host name.
It happened once a day till now and we solve it resetting the server or by de-activating and re activating the network card in network connections.

At first I thought "maybe a duplicated IP&... Read more

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to fix a slight problem I have, but I'm afraid I'm out of ideas and Google isn't helping much.

I have a Windows 2003 server machine with a GB ethernet adapter in it, and I use the server to hold files and act as a gateway. However, when I try to copy (large) files to the server, network utilization is about 50% for 3-4 seconds, then bottoms out to .5%-5% and keeps fluctuating in that range until it finishes or I stop it. I am able to copy files from the server at an acceptable speed without any trouble, though (30-50% utilization).

I know the problem can't be my own machine because I'm able to transfer large files to and from other Windows XP Pro machines without any problem. Anyone have an idea of what might be causing this and how to fix it?

Thanks,
Tom

P.S. I tried to search for something related to this, but I couldn't find anything.

Answer:Solved: Difference b/w Windows Server 2003 and Small Business Server 2003

Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has the following restrictions:
- Only one computer in a domain can be running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active Directoryョ forest.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
- 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.

Second Server that performs the data backup over a NAS lost all data from it and also the NAS (which was linked to), appearing TWO big files named BACKUP-1 and BACKUP-2 also, theorically, encrypted
 
Seems they made somekind of encrypted wallet (as old time before) and put all the data inside, just moving it (so, no way to look for deleted data)
 
We can not send more info at the moment, we only have the big files and nothing more, a plain text with short instructions to do.

I just got a new systems manager job with a school district which happens to be using a single Exchange 2003 server for email, which is roughly 6 years old and has had very little maintenance done to it, if at all. Personally, in my 12 years as an I.T. tech / administrator, by some freak occurance I've never once had to manage an Exchange server. Needless to say the server is far from performing at an optimal level. Slow, unable to communicate, delayed mail, etc.

I've been looking into the usual maintenance procedures and cannot find a clear answer on file level defragging of the drives, specifically the OS drive of the server.

We have the OS and Exchange installed on the C: drive. Logs on D: and the Database on E: drive.

When I run the Microsoft defrag analysis on the C: drive...it's SOLID red. I mean there isn't even a sliver of blue. One big chunk of red. The log drive and the database drive are nearly the same, with but a few hints of blue.

My current network administrator swears there's not one single iota of evidence that suggests the server should be defragged at the file level to help it perform better.

I cannot believe this is true. I understand the skittishness with the database drive and the log files. The need to dismount the store, backup the database, Esutil, etc. I get that.

But what about the OS drive?? Where exchange itself is installed? I mean it's SOLID RED and using Defraggler for a more detailed analysis it's readi... Read more

Our church has a file server (Dell 2900) running Server 2003 + SP2. It's job is to share files with the staff at the church on approx. 20 PCs & Macs. All was working OK till last week when suddenly no one could get on the shared files. when they tried to check the shares on there MY Computer, they were told that they didn't have permission or that the share did not exist. I could see the shares locally, but could not see or connect over the network.

I ran our symantec 10 and our malware bytes with reports that all was well.

I backed up the data to an ext HDD and reformated the C partiotion of the drive. The data resides on the D partition which I did not touch. It worked for a short while and then had the same failure.

Just some notes: When I turned off the share on the server, it informed that there was one user connected even though I knew no one was connected.

I installed the paid portion of malware bytes and saw several blocked malicious attempts to unknown IP addresses.

I further suspect a hidden spyware program because I looked in the log file of the router and saw connections and attempted connection between the servers IP and some unknown external IP addresses on a port around 24000.

What should I do next ?

One of the files on one of our shares disappeared, the thing is this file was tnsnames.ora meaning none of our users could initiate a new connection to any of our databases.

the permissions on this area are:

'uk admins' = full
system = full

there are 4 of us in the uk admins group (including myself) and none of us moved / deleted this file, i had it back in minutes but thats not the problem, its how the file disappeared!

has anyone see any strange issues like this before? its got to be one of the heaviest accessed files on our network as when ever a pc wants to access an oracle database it looks it up from the file (its a bit like DNS for databases).

is there any logs or anyway to see if someone deleted it or if anything happened to it in order for it to vanish?

Answer:Server 2003 - Identify user that deleted a file from share?

You know, I've deleted files on accident before... it happens. Someone in your admins group had to do it, as even with full share permissions, read would restrict your users to only being able to read the file.

Of course, someone could have executed the delete command as system... but it's really more likely that someone deleted it on accident.

Without auditing enabled, there really isn't a way to find out who deleted the files. It's times like this when I miss the old Novell servers where you could fire up a utility and undelete a file and identify the user that deleted it.

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.

J

My job is getting ready to change from Verizon to Comcast. We are hosting mail on Exchange Server 2003 as well as hosting files etc. on SBS server 2003.

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.

Thank you.
 

Answer:SBS Win Server 2003/Exchange Server 2003 change ISP???

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?

Someone correct me

OK, so I'm going to start implementing a Windows Server 2003 system in a couple of weeks, replacing the Win Server 2000 we use now.

We have 17 machines here, will want to use the server as both a file server and an Internet Connection Sharing server + firewall.
It would also be a domain server.

Which one of the versions should I get and why?
Thanks.
 

Answer:Windows 2003 Standard Server vs Windows 2003 Small Business Server.

Go with SBS and get the premium version. If you only have one server, this is the route to take. SBS includes Exchange and the premium version has ISA 2004 to add a firewall. Neither of these comes withe Standard.

Hi my problem is that none of the users in my access database have any permissions to do anything in my database, shortly after setting up the permissions they were erased so now it looks like this: none of the users (be them admin or just the single user) have any permissions to do anything to the database, the admin group says that admins have full permissions except on the database which it doesn't let me see; this isn't true though as i have tried opening forms and tables in design view and it stops me due to limited access.
It always signs me in as the default admin that you can't delete aswell.

I don't want to bog anyone down with a lot of information so MY QUESTION IS THIS: is there anyway i can get rid of the permission settings without going to too much hassle?

When I came back one of the computers could not connect to the network. Everytime I try to go to the network I get the message "\\servername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions." I have not changed anything with the server. I have tried disabling the firewall on the computer that cannot connect. I reformatted the computer and the message still appears. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey everyone,

Thanks for this great website. This will actually be my first post here. I am having issues with my DNS configurations, under the IPV4 properties. I originally had it set to receive the dns server automatically, and now it is constantly changing to receive dns server through a static IP. The static Ip address that keeps getting assigned is 216.146.36.240. I do have internet access, but I my outlook which is setup with a exchange email address is not connecting because of this issue. I noticed that my homepage did change once, but I dont know if it was because of a software that I downloaded or virus related. Honestly, I am not sure what is causing this.

Things that I have already tried:
Booted into safemode and ran rkill followed by malwarebytes and superantispyware.
I didnt know I wasn't supposed to run it on my own, but I ran Combofix (sorry)
I ran Microsoft Security Essentials
I ran from a command line ipconfig /flushdns, and rebooted.

Thanks guys

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.

Dear all:
This question is about giving right permission for users to access a folder, which contains a MS Access file database. In this case, without using MS Access to grant Read/Write rights, I can use Server OS to control user permissions of Read/Write.

However, it has happened a few times that suddenly some of us who have Administrator rights were only able to read the data but not able to alter; in other words, our permission rights have changed from Administrator to limited users. (Admin has both read and write, limited users only have read only).

I checked on the Server end, the permissions (for accessing that folder) are given correctly (assigned within Active Directory).

I was trying to figure out how it happened, and suddenly, I was able to view the database as Admin again.

There seems to be a glitch with my network across MS platform or something... sometimes either I cannot view the computers/shared folders on network, or sometimes I cannot access certain directories with right permissions.

Gladly this does not happen often (like once a month). But still, I would like to fix it. If anyone knows anything about it, please feel free to share your knowledge -)


Thank you~~

Answer:Windows 2000 server permission issue

permissions on a share is a separate set of information than login information. If you share something with everyone, it does not mean that everyone can log into a workstation. They will have to log in as a valid user, then connect to the share from there.

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

Hiya

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'm having issues finding the location of en expired certificate that one of my LDAP servers responds with during an LDAPS bind attempt.

I'm using Linux's ldapsearch to perform specific tasks during user creation but recently discovered the certificate expired. I have renewed said certificate and placed it in the personal store on that ldapserver but after debugging the SSL connection it still responds with the previously expired certificate.

Can anyone tell me where this certificate would be stored on Windows Server 2003. I've found multiple post regarding the store in 2008 but that does not exist in 2003. I've searched the whole store using certutil trying to match the serial on this certificate but can't find it anywhere.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I have started searching around for the correct docs on how to do this but haven't had much luck finding one that addresses what I'm trying to do.

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.

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 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.

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.

Thanks

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

From
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;842690#XSLTH3135121122120121120120
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

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.
