Server 2012 domain client constant logging out.

Question: Server 2012 domain client constant logging out.

I migrated my home server from whs 2011 to Server 2012 r2 a couple weeks ago and have been dealing with what I assume is a side effect of being on a domain now.

If I'm on my computer working, and leave it idle long enough that the monitor goes to sleep, as soon as I wake the monitor again the computer is on the lock screen and I need to log in. I can disable this by changing my power options so that I don't require a password on wakeup, but I would prefer to still require a password when I wake the actual computer from sleep.

Anyone know if I can change or disable this feature?

Preferred Solution: Server 2012 domain client constant logging out.

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.)

Answer: Server 2012 domain client constant logging out.

Change the power settings so the computer does not idle to sleep after 30 minutes. You can still manually put it in sleep mode when you are done using it.

Server OS Windows Server 2012 Essentials
Client OS: Windows 7 Professional

I recently upgraded from Home Server 2011 to Essentials 2012. This required me to create a Domain which I did, and the other PC's connect with no problem. Using the same procedure to connect my main machine, and it does not see any other computers that are in the domain when I go to network places, not even the server. I have checked that the primary DNS is pointing to 2012 Essentials server. I can connect to the other PCs by manually typing in the other PC names.

Another problem is that I cannot access the shared folders in the Dashboard. I log in as an administrator and have checked permissions. When I try to access these shared folders it gives me the access denied message.

Does anyone know what is going on with these two problems?

Thanks for your help in advance.
 

Answer:One client not seeing other computers in the Domain. Client OS Win7, Server OS 2012

I didn't use 2012 Essentials yet - only regular 2012 and domain is working without any problem.
Main thing is that client pc must have dns connected to server - on server you can set forwarding for external internet access.
If you have problems with domain you could try rejoin to domain on client PC - you'll verify then that everything is configured properly - I can recommend tool called Profile Wizard http://www.forensit.com/Profwiz/ It's great for rejoining to domain or when you want to switch to other domain without lose your profile.
Maybe Dasboard require for local administrator privileges to work properly ?

I recently purchased a new computer and I've tried everything to get it to sign onto the domain. How do you go in and edit what I put in originally as I think I must have something wrong. I have looked at the networking setups and they seem to be correct.
 

Answer:Logging onto Domain with NT Server

Can you ping the domain controller that you are trying to connect to? If so, then check the WINS settings and DNS settings. You might create an LMHOSTS file with the DC info in it. If all that is OK, then you should be able to join the domain with an admin account and password. If you are on the same subnet, you could install NETBEUI protocol to perform the connection. Just remove it after the domain connection is made.

People come in to the office with their laptops. They connect them to the network but the laptops are not on the domain. (I don't know if that is the right way to do things) Anyway the boss used to find that when he first logged into windows and tried to access one of his mapped network drives (on the server) that he had to enter a username and password that had permission to access the drives in question. Once he had done it for one, it wasn't necessary for the rest of the mapped drives. Anyway, I managed to solve this problem by making sure that his windows username and password matched a username and password of one of the users entered on the server. Then, when he logged into windows and tried to access the network drives on the server it validated his username and password behind the scenes. In other words, he wasn't asked to enter his server username and password because he had already entered these when he logged in to Windows XP.

He has just bought himself a new PC and installed all his software. Once again the laptop was set up with a non-matching username and password. Once again I altered it so that the Windows username and password matched those on the server (SBS2003). Unfortunately, it is still asking us to enter qualifying username and password when we try to access the network drives.

Either I have forgotten what I did last time or there is something that I just don't know. Can anyone help me?

Thank you

Ok, so after a long time working fine, my desktops stopped backing up.

So, as recommended by the TN Article for Client Backup issues, I started the Database Repair Utility in the Dashboard.

It starts, and after a while it fails and says it fails due to an unknown problem. I click the link it provides to find help, and it dumps me in the generic Server2012E page. I've not been able to find any help on this issue.

Any idea's ?

I also ran a SFT /Scannow on the server. The last time I had a client backup issue this fixed it.

Exact Error Wording:

Backup repair did not complete.
An unknown error prevented the backup repair process from starting. Make sure that all services are running then try again.

The services I know to check are indeed running.

Hi, I have a remoteapp published (via RDP file) from a 2012r2 server. All is well testing with Win7 client computers. Now I need to select thin clients to run this app, but am struggling with what will or won't work. t410, t510, t610?Which OS? Thinpro, and FreeRDP, or WES 7 or 8? A pointer to a "product selector" would be awesome ;-). But failing that, any recommendation or discussion is appreciated.

Answer:Thin Client selection for server 2012 r2 remoteapp

Personally, I suggest WES8, as it provides the support of latest version of RDP client.

Hey folks, I have a project for my network class we just got assigned that I am trying to beat so I can enjoy the weekend. The project is simply to set some permissions on files on a virtual server, then login with some client accounts to test that they are set. I have set the permissions and such, and am now trying to login to the clients and that is where I am stuck.

I am attempting to login as the User's, in this case Moria Cowan, and I get the error message "The System cannot log you on now because the domain ACMETOOLS is not available". However, I find this quite odd, because I am able to log in with the Administrator account onto the domain. I am confused because the error message to me signifys that the computer cannot find the domain, meaning the Computer is not on the domain, yet the Administrator can find it just fine. I triple checked the credentials of the login and even tried different usernames, but I still get the same error message.

One thing I noticed was the virtual network connection on the client isn't working as it says "Limited or no connectivity". I'm not sure if this is the cause of the problem since the Administrator is able to log on, but I would guess it's possible since it needs a connection to the server to authenticate properly. I attempted to use the Network Identification Wizard on the XP Client, and it says "Windows cannot find an account for your computer on the ACMETOOLS domain, even though ... Read more

Answer:Network / Server Project Help - Logging in As Client Problem.

if you logged in with the domain admin acct while everything was working, the comptuer cached the credentials.
So, once the credentials are cached, you can continue to log in with that account, regardless of network connectivity to the domain.

The reason you cannot login with this "new" user, is because their credentials are not cached on the local box, and the DC cannot be contacted to verify authentication.

Log in with the admin account (which admin acct? you never specifically stated... local box Administrator account? some domain admin account called Administrator?), and clear up the limited or no connectivity issues first.

Limited or no connectivity error messages relates to the PC not being able to contact a DHCP server to get an IP.

I just got a Dell Optiplex 755 Core 2 Duo 2.33ghz with 8gb ram, 120gb hard drive, 1gbit ethernet, and running Server 2012 R2 Standard as the OS for the domain controller. Will this system be sufficient as a full time domain controller for a home network on this OS? I hope it's fast enough to do what's needed. I also plan to remotely manage it. The computer was $150 as configured, including the ram I had to order for it.

It's not ECC ram, would this be a problem?
 

Answer:Server 2012 R2 domain controller computer minimum?

Way more than good enough. The DC VMs I use for home as 1 vCPU and 1.5GB of RAM each. You can run a DC off an intel NUC for home use.

Non-ECC is not really an issue in this case.

Answer:Redhat 9 logging into a windows 2000 server domain?

You must use Samba to do this. There are some great howto's online for Samba.

Change the name of the Samba group(My Group) to your domain name. Change the authentication from "user" to domain add your domain controller's IP address and add the Linux box's name into DNS.

If you have Samba installed already you can accomplish all this by using the Samba server configuration utility. You WON'T need to manually edit any config files to get this to work. I have it setup right now on my network and it works fine.

I know that is a simplified version. Post again if you haven't gotten it to work yet.

Yeh you have to setup samba and tell it to use a password server (2K domain controller). I haven't done this myself but it shouldn't be too difficult.

I have a Win2K single controller domain where user logons at any Win98SE client machine fail where a password is required with the message “Microsoft Networking: The Domain password you supplied is not correct or access to your login server has been denied”. This includes the “Administrator” user.

However, a same usernames set with no password can log on without problems, is recognised by the domain as a logged on user & has full functionality.

I suspect that it is a relatively simple “settings” problem but after a fair amount of experimentation and searching through “Help” and on the Internet, I still can’t work out what’s wrong.

Additional information:

i) I can log the user names onto the Domain Controller (the only Win2k machine currently on the network) using the designated password, so the problem isn’t a simple password error.

About 3 weeks ago we migrated all of our users from one AD domain server to another pre-existing server. 2 Weeks ago we migrated our file/print server to that same domain.

Ever since we migrated the file & printer server, users randomly lose their connection to the print queues. The only way to get them working again is by connecting to the server via IP address rather than host name. The computers can't even see the server with the current FQDN - only by the IP address.

Has anyone had an issue like this after a migration?

All client machines are running Win 7 x64, and the server in question is running Server 2k8 R2.
 

Answer:Server migrated to new domain. Client's connections keep dropping

Sooo...

What happens when they reboot? It starts working again? You said "users randomly lose their connection to the print queues." does that mean they randomly gain connections also? Do they randomly loose it when it's IP based or only domain based?

Did you verify the DNS server? Does /flushdns resolve anything?

Did you check for GPOs or scripts?

Hello, I'm having trouble with trying to join my client computer to the server domain. My client is Windows 7 Professional and the server domain OS is Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. I tried the usual method of going to System-Change Settings-Change-and entering the domain name to join. However, I get the message saying:

An active directory domain controller (ad dc) for the domain sean.local could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly.

I know for a fact that the domain name (sean.local) is correct. On my DC, I have Active Directory, DHCP and DNS installed. Its weird because I could ping the server IP just fine and get a response, but when I ping the domain name (sean.local) I do not get a response. I get a message saying "Ping request could not find host sean.local. Please check the name and try again."

I think the issue I'm having with not being able to join the domain has something to deal with the DNS server. I will post the network configurations for both the client and the server domain and hopefully we could get this client to finally join the domain once and for all. Thank you everyone for your help, I appreciate it.

I've joined the Windows 7 Pro workstations to the Domain using the SERVER2012/Connect app and that seemed to work fine.  I made the Users all Standard, not Admin, and access to the Shared folders is working fine too.  Users appear to be in the
Administrators group on the local machine, which is what I need.
However, a number of our applications aren't working correctly ... one writes changes to HKey Current User and those changes will not stick.  Some IE sites that require changes have to be made each time; those changes don't save.  Some
of the ODBC connections to SQL databases are behaving strangly as well.  I tried checking permissions on the Windows Registry keys, and they looked OK.  Turning off User Access Control did not help either.
If I log on to the workstation not using the Domain Account I don't have this problem.  And, one of the workstations which had performed the Windows 10 Upgrade while connected to the previous Domain Controllder works fine.
Any direction would be greatly appreciated!   Thx DMiller

Hi
I have a strange problem I cant workout. It started with a new customer RDP 2012 server which we could not connect to an app once logged in.
If on an external PC it works OK.
If I create a fresh PC on our LAN it works.
If I this PC to the domain, it works.
If I move the PC to a UK Specific OU it stops working
If I move back out of the OU it still does not work
If I remove from the domain and do "GPUPDATE /FORCE /BOOT" and reboot and log backon as local admin account it still does not work!!
So there seems to be something in particular on the GPO in the UK OU in AD which causes the problem but even after moving the computer out it seems to store this mysterious setting and fails to work unless reimaged.
Any suggestions besides adding each option one by one in test GPO/OU????

Ive seen that some businesses set up their workstations to log into a server domain. Now what exactly does this do or benefit? For instance, this is how my school does it and I presume they use it to limit what users can install on the machines, what options they can tweak on the computer, etc. because I cant do any of those

Anyways, I was just wondering what it might take to do something like this? Do I need a physical domain name on the Internet (ie: www.myname.com) and a DNS server or what?

Also, could you maybe point me in the direction for how to set one up with Windows Server 2003? Thanks

its easy all you have todo is a the server version of windows running on a box and rung the wizzard to set it up. A domain can be tottaly local.

There are others but that in itself (when you have large numbers of boxes) is enough to choke on

Why did my deployment of Windows 2012 fails with the error message, "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot
proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." OR I have components that didn't install drivers that are in my driver package?
example error in setuperr.log (from %windir%\Panther) shows the following failure information:

I've got a machine running Windows 7 logged on the network domain but when I try to map a share to a machine on the network, but not registered on the domain I cannot connect (even though I have a local account on the networked machine).When attempting to connect Windows 7 prompts me for my connection credentials and it automatically fills in the domain name.  How can I connect to this network share using credentials that are local to that network share?

Answer:Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box. Then you should be able to just type in TestServer\LocalAccount and the password (the domain you see should automatically switch to "TestServer")Also; have you tried mapping the drive using the IP address (i.e. \\xx.xx.xx.xx\TestShare)?

Hi
I am working with windows 8 and I have installed SQL server 2007 and visual studio 2010. Now I want to upgrade these setups to SQL server 2012 and visual studio 2012. what is the advantages of what i want to do and how can i do it easily without corrupting the operating system? Please help.

Answer:Installation of sql server 2012 and visual studio 2012

SQL Server has an upgrade option that is pretty painless. Just run the setup file from your 2012 installation media and click the upgrade option. It will ask you what instance to upgrade, run some checks, and then upgrade it for you.

Visual Studio is a little different. If you install 2012 without uninstalling 2010 first, you will simply just have both versions to choose from. You can completely uninstall 2010 before installing 2012 by finding your 2010 installation file and adding the uninstall and force switches when running it(ex. "C:\vs_ultimate.exe /uninstall /force").

If you keep 2010, 2012 will ask you if you wish to import your settings and whatnot from 2010. If you uninstall 2010, 2012 will just have it all when you open it for the first time.

My school gives us server 2012 standard for free. I am wondering if it's possible to install it as 2012 essentials with the same features as essentials kind of like how win pro had every thing home had. Or are the features of server essentials not included in standard? (Features like full pc back up and the dashboard like whs 2011)
 

Answer:can you setup server 2012 standard as 2012 essentials?

Different media for the install, Server Standard and Datacenter use the same media. Essentials has it's own install disk and Foundation and Storage Server share the same media.

Hello, all!

I am preparing to get a Windows Server set up in the near future here at a mission school I just started working at.

Here's what I am planning on running:
Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, under which I will run 3x virtual machines (Server 2012 Standard, pfSense, and Untangle).

Since I am needing to get this implemented as soon as possible, I am trying to decide what to do, considering Windows Server 2012 R2's release is just around the corner.

I'm wondering... Is 2012 R2 going to be a completely different OS, in that you need to purchase a separate license key to run it if you already have 2012? Or will it be more like a service pack?

Also, can the preview version be upgraded to release once it is released?

The reason I am asking is that I am needing to get this set up as soon as possible, and need to know how to proceed. Should I use Hyper-V preview and Standard preview (if there is one... Only seen datacenter so far) then upgrade to release and purchase licenses, or is there something else that would be preferable?

Thanks!

Answer:Windows Server 2012 to 2012 R2 Questions

2008 R2 and 2012 R2 are new operating systems that require you to purchase them. I believe 2012R2 has gone RTM recently, which means in a few months you should be able to get it.

There are a lot of VM improvements in 2012, and even more in 2012R2. If you're just running a basic setup it's not needed to hold out for, unless you're not under any time constraints, then why not. Here is a list of the major R2 features.

I'm not sure how well pfSense and Untange will run in a Hyper-V VM. The Gen 2 VM and improved Linux support of R2 may be needed for better operation.

Hi, I have recently upgraded two machines on a computer network from windows 98SE to windows XP Pro.

I am having a few problems with the Windows XP that I seem unable to resolve, they main problem is to do with the networking of these computers.

I have about 20 machines on my network of which most are windows 98SE, except for the two I have now upgraded to Windows XP Pro for evaluation. Also on the network is a Windows 2000 Server.

The network is a conventional LAN configuration with each PC using a Ethernet card to connect to a Switch.

The windows 2000 server is setup as a domain controller etc...

When using windows 98 everything is fine in the network setup; I select logon on to windows NT domain, type in the name, ensure all the other network settings are correct, such as get IP automatically then when restarting you are presented with a logon box that requests user name, domain and password. type them in hit enter and off you go! Easy!

When I upgraded to Windows XP, if I select connect to domain, and name it correctly it sits there for ages and then eventually says there is no domain available. However if I select connect to workgroup it will connect to the workgroup but not the server. So I know there is nothing wrong with the network connection. Why will it not log onto to my domain.

Hello everybody.
Due to my lack of knowledge about Windows 7 Security, I used to think  I could not log in with a Domain User Profile when my pc was not physically on the domain's intranet itself , that is when the domaiin server was unreachable.  Instead, a colleague
showed me I was wrong and made me log in with my domain user even on a different intranet.

The problem now is that, this way, internet Explorer 11 cannot surf anymore to whatever site , it always complains it cannot reach the page. Google Chrome instead, works perfectly. 
I realized that, by disconnecting the domain user,  and using a local user , Internet Explorer works correctly.
What' s the explaination ?
Thank you in advance for helping...

I've got a perplexing problem that there must be some way to deal with that I'm missing. I'm trying to set up my Win98 computer to dial into a RAS server. If I don't check the box 'Log Into WinNT Domain' in Client for MS networks, I can't access any files on the network once I log in. When I try to open any file I get a box requesting a password which is always rejected. If I do check the box, I get an error every time I boot my computer that it can't find any domain to validate my password even though I set the primary logon to Windows Logon. How can I set it up so don't get bugged at startup but still access the network when I dial in?

So I recently added a new system running x86 windows 7 to the network, and when I log out or shut down using a local account, everything works as it should. If I log on to one of the user domain accounts, however, these actions don't work. Instead, the start menu and icons disappear and I'm left with the desktop background indefinitely.

Unplugging the network cable and plugging it back in then makes the system proceed to regular log out / shut down procedures, but I'm not sure why... Any ideas on some setting that is mis-set?

Also, this only seems to happen the first time I attempt to log out or shut down since the last reboot. So, if I log in to a domain account and try to log out, it will do this "freeze". Then, I unplug the network cable and plug it back in, and then the system logs out of the account. If I then log back in and try to log out again, it will work fine. But if I reboot the machine, the problem returns.

Hi, I'm a DBA and hope to help people with there database questions. However networking has always been my weakest area and I'm trying to change that. However, I've gotten in way over my head with this one. My kids and I built a server and I've installed Windows Server 2012 Data Center Edition on it with the intention of making it our DC and DNS server as well as to host some hyper-v instances. However, I can't seem to get this thing to work. Everything I've read tell me I have to give it a static IP but every time I try it loose connection to my router. I finally relized that I had to make the IP on the same subnet as the router. My router is 10.0.0.1 and the DHCP ip my server was receiving was 10.0.0.18 so I figured I'd make it 10.0.0.50 and set the scope in my router from .2 -.49 but that didn't work. I really don't know what I'm doing and the network guys are work are trying to help me but it's not working and I live almost 50 miles from my office. Please help.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

.. hoping I can get some help on this. Driving me nuts!

Since upgrading to Windows Server 2016, WOL doesn't work for me. I've ruled out network or router issues, since it works perfectly fine on my Windows 7 machine.

I have 3 NICs in a team, but that's irrelevant, since the WOL doesn't work even if I disabled the teaming. One thing I did notice is that when I shutdown my Windows 7 machine, the NICs remain lit. However, the NICs on my Windows Server 2016 completely turn off. I don't recall if that was the case when I was using 2012 on the same hardware, but it seems strange to me. If the NICs are completely off, I can't imagine there is a way for them to receive magic packets.

I checked the UEFI and all the necessary options are enabled for WOL. I also tried upgrading the NIC drivers on the server but that didn't help. I read that Windows 10 has a "fast startup" option that messes with WOL, so I disabled it in the Group Policy settings on the server, but that didn't work either.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful for the help.

Hey there,

As often said...long time lurker. Recently installed a copy of WS2012 Datacenter I received to play with and learn more about. I have pretty much zero Windows Server background knowledge (I don't count WHS...which I have running as well).

So, my question...I created a Storage Pool, and then a couple Volumes, and then Shares.

My embarrassing noob question...how do I access these Shares?

I can locate the server on my network, and know the IP address of it.

I created a User account so that I don't need to use the Admin account for general use.

My goal:
Access the Share I created from my MacBook Air so that I can read/write files from it.

Thanks in advance for tolerating my WS "noobness."
 

Answer:Accessing Windows Server 2012 Server Pool Shares

Not sure how to access it from a mac, but on a windows box you can just run \\%servername%\%sharename% and it'll launch it in an explorer window. Should be some sort of network browser on the mac to allow you to type in the unc.

HI FF and welcome

Do us a favor in the future give us the actial DMP file. We can do a lot more with it. That being said your crash was probaly caused by Driver : fltmgr.sys. That file if the OS file manager.

I would run a system file check to verify and reair your system files
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

let u know if you need help

What is the difference between logging into the local computer / logging into the domain if both ways say they are connected to the domain (via the "Computer Name" info screen).

Im not using roaming profiles, the main reason these workstations are on the domain is so they have trusted access to the share drives / servers.


The reason this issue came up is because I have a few windows 7 workstations that dont "remember" that they were last logged into the domain so when you boot up some users are just logging into the local computer instead.
 

Answer:Logging into domain vs local computer??

This all depends largely on your domain setup and permissions, etc.

But logging into the local computer itself may restrict access from those network drives you were talking about. If there are login scripts that run on login those won't run when logging in locally either. This is something you'll have to ask your network admin about though.

I am busy looking in to having our remote users connect to our domain via a 1 or 2mb broadband connection.

The connection is secured by a good VPN, but I am now wondering about their profile info and application settings.

I would ideally like it so they can log in at any machine at any site and have all their files etc.

I can do this easily for their My documents, but I wondered what the best way was for them to keep all their application settings and setup.

Obviously giving them a profile path in their Active Directory profile would give them roaming profiles, but this is very slow over a broadband link, so I want to kind of have roaming profiles, but without all the slowness.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
 

Answer:Logging in to domain on a slow link

If their credentials are verified by the VPN that you are using then they should be able to browse through and connect to any machine on the domain as long as they have sufficient privileges !!
It should be like any other user on the domain !

Hello All,
I've been rather unsuccessful in finding (or at least searching for) a solution to a rather tricky problem I have encountered with another user. 
The user in question has a domain account that they log into a domain joined computer. When they start up the computer after turning it off the previous day, restart the computer, or even lock the computer (through CTRL+ALT+DEL or Windows+L)
it will send them to the login screen where the default and only profile is on the screen. After putting in their password, it simply sends them back to the same "Press CTRL+ALT+DEL" screen. This happens with each attempt and is reproducible,
no other errors show such as "Incorrect Password". For the user to login, they must go to the lower left of the screen, click on "Switch User", and then click on their same profile for it to accept the password and log them in. The user
must do this for every instance that they power cycle, restart, or lock their computer. 
Any advice on this issue is much appreciated as I had said above, I have not had much success with figuring out a solution for this.

Not sure if this is in the best forum, but I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this for me. When certain users log in to our domain, they are being routed to a different user profile. For example, a user called Astir logs in to the domain CFCHFIN as usual, but all of the settings that are used once he logs in are actually in the Astir.CServe profile. I can move all of the necessary files to the correct profile, but even after deleting Astir.CServe from the users list, I cannot delete the Astir.CServe profile. It says ~ Astir.CServe is a Windows system file and is required for Windows to work properly. It cannot be deleted.

What's going on here and how do I fix it?

Is CFCHFIN a new domain? It is possible Astir.CServe is a cached profile that is being loaded because it cannot find the CServe domain. Are you sure the user is being authenticated by an active domain controller?

Were you logged on as Astir when you tried to delete the profile. How are you deleting the profiles? I would recommend using the User Profiles window. System Properties > (user profiles) Settings. You did not specify which OS the server and clients were running so the User Profiles option may be different.

I support 51 people @ one of the places that I work.
One individual can no longer get internet access from THAT computer. If he logs on another machine he gets access, and if I log on that machine I get access.
also if I add him to domain admin he can access the internet
I've tried everything. reconfiguring DHCP, DNS is absolutely correct, release and renew IP address, make sure he is not in any doubtful groups who may not have access.
He logs on to the domain fine and the Exchange server.
with my limited experience like most of us,maybe a new brain ,or different perspective will help.

Hi All,

I've got an NT4 domain with 2 servers, W98SE workstations and an ME laptop. All working fine. However, for various reasons I had to upgrade one of the W98SE boxes to W2K. The upgrade itself went fine, but I cannot connect to the NT4 domain. Every time I use the Network Identification wizard it says that "mydomain" is not a valid domain or cannot connect to it. I'm not an expert on W2K (to say the least...) but in my humble opinion this should be possible without too much fuss. Do I need to use another way of specifying the domain? What is the computer domain the wizard keeps asking for? I've searched the forum for this, but couldn't find anything hopeful...

I tried to incorporate the machine in the domain through server manager on the NT4 PDC: no luck.

Btw: at the moment it's not an option to migrate the servers to W2K.

Hello all,
 
I work at a computer store as a technician. We're always looking for tools, and ComboFix was highly recommended to me a while ago, and I've been using it for a few weeks now. It's great!
 
It is, of course, also extremely powerful, which I appreciate!
 
This time though, we used it on a machine that was HEAVILY infected. I saw it removing tons of files and folders, including several WINDOWS folders in weird places - like Document and Settings/Username/WINDOWS
 
Anyways. We can try and do a repair install on the machine, but it's XP Media Center edition, and we're not confident that the repair will go smoothly.
 
So, can anyone point us in the right direction? I know ComboFix backs up the registry - do you guys think that's why it's shutting down?
 
I installed the Recovery Console - how can we restore the registry through there, if that will fix it?
 
Thanks for your help guys, sorry for running the tool without your direction. I wish there was more information available on how it works, so I could make more informed choices on my own, but what are you gonna do.
 
Thanks again!

Answer:Ran ComboFix on a client's machine, now it shuts off after logging in

I have searched the forums for two weeks and I still cannot log into a Samba domain controller. I have tried everything suggested including upgrading my version of Samba to 3.3.4 and it only made matters worse. After two weeks, I am able to have my laptop join the domain, but after I reboot and try to log into the domain as a user, it keeps giving me the lost trust error, meaning that the creds were rejected. I have tried every combo of enabling and disabling of the RequiredSignOrSeal and RequireStrongKey registry entries and still nothing. If anyone has a patch or another workaround to get this working, I am all ears. The funny thing about all of this is when I log into the local host account, I can see the other machines on the domain. Could this mean I am actually logging into the domain and I don't even know it or is that a whole other issue seeing as how the login screen is telling me I am logging into the local machine? Again, any help would be appreciated!

Answer:Windows 7 Pro logging into Samba domain controller

What's the "local host account"?

How do you "see" the other machines "on the domain" when logged on as that account?

To troubleshoot this without guessing:

- www.wireshark.org
- install
- start a packet trace log
- quickly repro the symptom
- stop and save the trace
- zip and upload here.

Analysis of a packet trace is the best way to troubleshoot networking issues. Once the activity "on the wire" is understood, it's possible to be more focused in searching for a resolution.

I know that to log onto a local account when on the domain in windows 7 you would use .\ before the username. ex ( .\larry ).

I also understand that typing the user name "administrator" automatically sets it from domain to local. My question is, is there something I can change, such as the registry or user profile so that a different account ( such as larry) does the same as administrator, which is automatically change from domain to local upon typing the name in the user field?

Thanks in advance.

[*] Make sure your network settings are set to use Client for Microsoft Networks as it's logon, and that the Domain name is correct in the Properties.

[*] Look to see if TweakUI is installed, and set to auto logon (check in the control Panel for the TweakUI applet)

[*] Do a search for all *.PWL files and delete them.

Hi,

I am hoping to setup a laptop to log onto a domain using a dialup connecting (actually a 3g card) but im not sure how to go about it, will the domain controller itself need a public ip to make this possible? Or can I setup some sort of port forwarding arrangement to make it work?
 

Answer:logging onto a server2003 domain using dialup connection

You will need VPN access through their firewall (username/password) or if they are port forwarding 1723 straight to the DC you will need only a local username/password on the Network.

You need to have this sorted before creating a PPTP connection. Dial-up shouldn't be a problem, just a little slower than usual.

1. Obtain username/password for VPN connection
2. Obtain Public Ip address or host name (mail.whatever.com) for where you are trying to connect to
3. Create a PPTP connection or install 3rd party application to connect once you are on the internet.

Good luck! :grinthumb

I know someone who runs an NT 4 domain in an interesting setup. He has one NT 4 PDC that is only used for file/print sharing and login validation. He only has two user's setup on the PDC. This setup is used in a college environment (very small school). He has all of the students use the same login ID, either userA or userB. Both user accounts are only in the Domain Users group on the PDC. Neither user account is in any group on the local 2K Pro PC's. When a student logs into one of these PC's as userA or userB they should only have the permissions assigned from the PDC, which should be whatever the Domain Users can do.

Well, this guy bought some new PC's with 2K Pro already loaded on them, set them up out of the box as-is, connected them to the domain, logged in as userA and userB and found that both user's can browse the other user's folders on the local PC. So userA can browse userB's profile folder and subfolders and userB can browse userA's profile folder and subfolders. He has double checked and made sure that userA and userB are not in the local admin groups and that they only group to which they belong in the domain is Domain Users.

Any ideas on what might be causing this?

On Windows 8 machines and up, when I enable DNS Client Event logging through the event viewer (The log named Microsoft-Windows-DNS Client Events/Operational), the log quickly fills up with many events.

However, when I turn on that logging service on Windows 7 machines - it only logs a small percentage of event IDs that Windows 8 and 10 log.

For example - Event ID 3008 - which means that a DNS request for a particular domain has finished processing - does not seem to appear at all in windows 7, but is frequently seen in the DNS Client event logs for windows 8.

My windows 7 machines are all up to date on Windows updates, if that makes a difference.

My question is this - is there a way to turn on Windows 8+ style logging for DNS Client events on Windows 7 machines? Could it be as simple as modifying a registry value? Is there another way to get DNS Client resolution information on Windows 7 machines?



Thank you very much in advance
