Client(s) can't connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 server

Question: Client(s) can't connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 server

I'm in the process of installing an application server that requires SQL Server 2008 R2 (x64) on a separate device. However, I'm noticing this error message whenever I try to install the application through its proprietary configuration tool:


Code:

ERRO: CheckDBCreation failed to create database. Error: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections (provider: TCP Provider, error: - = No such host is known).
ERRO: CheckDBCreation failed to drop database
ERRO: The provided SQL user may not have permissions to create and drop databases.
ERRO: ConfigureServer: The Configuration did not validate
ERRO: Task 'ValidateConfiguration' Failed (Exit Code=1)

This is what I have done so far:

On Server:
- Installed Client Tools
- Set it as Mixed-Mode Authentication (Windows + SQL)
- Created inbound rule on Windows Firewall to allow TCP 1433 (SQL Connection) and UDP 1434 (SQL Browser Service) from a small IP scope (only have four "test" servers in my network) under Domain, Public, and Private
- Created SQL accounts in Server Management Studio and verified that they are able to connect to SQL
- Checked DB instance in Server Management Studio to allow remote connections to the server
- Checked in Server Configuration Manager > Native Client 10.0 Configuration (32-bit) > Client Protocols, and verified that TCP/IP was enabled (default port of TCP 1433)
- Checked in Server Configuration Manager > Server Network Configuration > Protocols of instance, and verified that TCP/IP was enabled (not using Named Pipes...not even sure what that is...)
- Restarted the SQL services (SQL Browser Service in particular)
- Used "telnet localhost 1433" on telnet client and failed to connect
- Used "telnet 127.0.0.1 1434" on telnet client and failed to connect

On client:
- Used "telnet sql-computer-name 1433" on telnet client and failed to connect
- Used "telnet ip-address 1433" on telnet client and failed to connect
- Used "telnet ip-address 445" on telnet client and that worked
- Used "telnet sql-computer-name 80" on telnet client and that worked

So, I think it is the way I'm setting up my SQL connections. I've never set up SQL Server 2008 R2 before, so I'm rather clueless. Perhaps someone shed some light on this since I feel frustrated now.

Preferred Solution: Client(s) can't connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 server

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: Client(s) can't connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 server

You were on the right track, but having the server listen on localhost/127.0.0.1 may or may not be what you want. Regardless, you need to tell SQL to bind to the ethernet interface since you're trying to connect to it over the network.

Do a netstat -a on the server and see if you have 0.0.0.0:1433 or the ethernet interface:1433. You could also do telnet serverip 1433.

If it's not listening on the desired interface, you need to look up how tell SQL to bind to that interface (I don't know, I'm not familiar with it either).

this seem more difficult than it should be?

Answer:Can't connect to Server 2008 via Windows 7 Administration tools/Server Manager

Check Technet for the WinRM reference and or make sure that WinRM is enabled on the servers you are trying to access.

Use group policy to enable it if you need to do a bunch of machines at once. I'm using this with no problems.

I have received a new windows 7 pro computer to replace my old windows xp computer. I have used the Windows easy transfer tool to move the files from my old computer to the new one. The old computer is still connected for the time being. I named the computer the same name and have the same password. I did an update from xp to windows 7 on another computer and it seemed to work fine using the same process. It connected to the server automatically. I would really like to have it where the computer is just a workstation on the network and anyone can sign in with any name and password. How do I do it?

Answer:Can't connect to Server 2008 via Server Manager on Windows 7?

edit, I was wrong. https requires a non self signed cert
do the following in powershell, this is for powershell remoteing but it does the winrm stuff as well:

on the server:

Code:
Enable-PSRemoting –force
on the client:

Code:

Start-Service WinRM
Set-ItemProperty –Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System –Name LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy –Value 1 –Type DWord
Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts &#8211;Value <ServerName> -Force -Concatenate

Be warned that this is very insecure.

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.

I have just replaced an old XP box with our first Windows 8.1 Pro client. Joined the domain (Server 2008 R2, using active directory), seamed quite normal. When I rebooted, I received the normal windows logon screen, user name & password, entered those and logged in. The problem being, all resources on the network required me to enter network credentials. For example, try and double click on file server get following 'Windows Security' window:
Enter network credentials. Enter your credentials to connect to: SERVER.
The system cannot contact a domain controller to service the authentication request. Please try again later

I have: unjoined and rejoined client to domain; Checked active directory and the computer is correctly registered. Nothing is helping. Please help.

Answer:Network Credentials issue, win 8.1 client & Server 2008 AD

According to Paul Thurrott you need to add the credentials by going into the Windows vault per method #2 in the link below. If you don't add the credentials to the vault then Windows won't remember them despite checking the box to remember credentials.

He is using Windows server 08 and Homegroups with Windows 8 and he shows both methods to access network shares on the server.

DOS Client cannot connect to XP (Professional) SMB Server

Please forgive the length of this message, I am trying to be comprehensive.

Let me first describe all of the contenders involved in this little affair. I have one MS-DOS 6.22 client that I will call “DOSM”, one Windows XP (Professional) system that I will call “XPM”, and a laptop (also running XP Professional) that I will call “XPLT”. The three above computers are connected via a network hub (not a switch). The goal is to successfully connect DOSM to XPM via NetBIOS over NetBEUI.
The problem, obviously, is that they cannot currently connect. As I just mentioned DOSM is running DOS 6.22, and using NetBIOS over NetBEUI. I have the other two systems: XPM, and XPLT configured to support the NetBEUI protocol. I have created shares on XPM and XPLT, configured file system permissions, and configured share permissions for the DOSM user to connect. I am not using the XP’s “simple file sharing” scheme, but am requiring real user (and password) authentication.
Interestingly enough, DOSM CAN connect to XPLT without issue, but can not connect to XPM. First, I tried to eliminate all of the “standard” mishaps associated with such a problem. I started by checking the XP firewall settings, and I believe they are acceptable. I have tested this connection with the firewall disabled. I have checked both group policy system settings and the security template for both machines (XPM, XPLT) attempting to remove differences betw... Read more

I have two windows laptops one running Win 7 one running Server 2008. The Sever laptop isn't using the sever function just being used as a free alternative to Win 7. The Win 7 computer connects to Diskstation just fine but the Server one will not. When I went into Windows explorer and typed in \\DiskStation the Win 7 computer lead me to login. The Server computer however says that it cannot access disk station. Once I clicked on diagnose it said this:

file and print sharing resource (DISKSTATION) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts.

The remote computer isn’t responding to connections on port 445, possibly due to firewall or security policy settings, or because it might be temporarily unavailable. Windows couldn’t find any problems with the firewall on your computer.

I have tried turning off the firewall and other security measures but with no success.

Hi,

I am using an xp sp2 machine as the VPN server. It connects to the internet via a Netopia wireless router, although the machine is connected to the Netopia router via ethernet cable, not through a wireless card. I have windows firewall turned off.

I am using a vista sp1 machine as the client. It connects to the internet via a Belkin wirless g plus router which is connected to a Speedstream4200 modem. This machine also connects to the Belkin router via ethernet cable. Windows firewall is on.

I set up the xp vpn server on the remote machine via logmein.

I followed this guide: http://www.aeonity.com/frost/howto-windows-xp-vpn-server-setup

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask for a help in hand here, but i'm having trouble tracking down the source of a problem. My dedicated server provider has informed me that 1 of my servers has been sending syn flood attacks to another one of my servers connected to the same router and has unplugged the network cable on it for now as a precaution.

I can still remote desktop to the machine to work on it though.

Here is what they sent me:
This was a flood of traffic between the following two IPs 174.*.*.218,
174.*.*.219 Mainly traffic from 174.*.*.218 to the 174.*.*.219. All
4096 packets, that are the limit for a capture on the router, were strictly
traffic to and from these two IPs, and mainly traffic from 174.*.*.218 to the
.219 IP. This traffic was causing the CPU on the router to spike, thus causing
packetloss on the device.

It would appear that the 174.*.*.218 server was
performing a syn attack to the server 174.*.*.219. As this traffic was
originating from a host on this router to another host on this router. Cisco
Guard would not have mitigated this issue.

Now I have done some tests with netstat -o to try and find any rouge applications but everything seems normal to me, I have done a scan with Avast server edition and also MalwareBytes to see if anything could be picked up but both came back clean.

Has anyone got any advice?

Users who attend a launch event will get a promotional kit of the three Microsoft products Windows Server? 2008 operating system, Microsoft? SQL Server? 2008, and Microsoft Visual Studio? 2008.
Not everyone can just walk in though and grab the copies, you need to register to be able to attend an event and even then kits will only be given out as long as supplies last. Events will also take place in other countries. A quick check revealed one event in Germany where attendees have to pay a fee to be able to attend the event. They still get the software kit with the newest versions of the applications though.
News Source: http://www.ghacks.net/2008/01/22/free-copies-of-windows-server-sql-server-and-visual-studio-2008/
You have to give a company name and job title during registration. It is unclear if Microsoft will reject applications if they do not meet certain criteria. The first event is on February 27th in Los Angeles, the last on May 22nd in Reston.

I have a Access 2000 database residing on one sever and an installation of SQL Server 2008 residing on another. Both servers are running Windows Server 2003. I created a linked server using the code below. When I run EXEC sp_tables_ex 'PropCont' I get the following,

I'm experimenting with implimenting this and am having a few issues.

When I install a print device and deploy with GPO, it works great.

When I update the driver on the server to a newer version using the 'new driver' button, I have issues. It prompts the user saying they need to install the driver. If you choose to install, it prompts for administrator credentials, which obviously negates the whole point of centralized management.

If I remove the printer from deployment, delete it and the driver, then add it again with an older version driver, and redeploy, the clients are still using the newer driver (sometimes I have reasons to roll back print drivers).

One thing I did notice is the driver is not listed as a package, where the default stuff by Microsoft is. I don't know if that makes a difference. If it is, how can I create the package? Do I have to use WDS or something similar?

So, what am I doing wrong when I'm changing the drivers that it won't automatically deploy the new driver without user intervention? Also, if there is no way to force the change, is there a way to force client stations to delete the old driver without getting into a bunch of scripting (I don't care for it).

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.

Hey guys,

I'm trying to boot from a USB Memory Stick to install 2008 SP2 (Non-R2) on a Quad-Xeon ECC-Ram Supermicro Server from around 2002 that has with it only a CD-ROM Drive.

Fortunately,
The USB Memory Stick shows up as a Hard Drive boot device in the CMOS, but after following some instructions to format thumb drive to fat32, and run the following command: xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ --- The drive will not boot to the installation, it simply boots to a black screen which says "Operating System Not Found"

The thread I originally came across that discussed how to do this (through diskpart)
But, diskpart doesn't list the USB Removable Memory Stick as a Device, so I can't follow the instructions which were:

1) diskpart
2) list disk
3) select disk 1
4) clean
5) create partition primary
6) select partition 1
7) active
8) format fs=fat32
9) assign
10) exit

Anyway,
I think I'm missing a step.
I'm also sure theres a utility out there that would handle this,
Can someone point me in the right direction?
 

Answer:Booting from USB to install Server 2008 on an old Supermicro Server.

The diskpart instructions can be completed through Explorer. Right click the drive and select format.

Next, you are missing to the bootsect.exe step. On the original Server 2008 installation media there should be a folder named boot. Inside you will find bootsect.exe.

You will need to run the following command against the USB drive and make sure you are running the command prompt in elevated mode(admin rights).

As an example, if your USB drive is E: then type:
Code:

My migration from Server 2003 to Server 2008 was going great until i just shutdown the last Server 2003 box that still had DNS running. Apparently DNS on my new Server 2008 DC was not really working and was forwarding requests to the old 2003 server. Once i shut it down outside requests and the entire internet stopped working until i turned that server back on again. Do i need to setup DNS forwarders with the IP of my ISP's DNS server for this to work or simply remove all forwarder IP's? i noticed on the old 2003 box it had no forwarders setup so that means it was using the root hints all along? internal host lookups work fine.
 

Answer:Server 2003 to Server 2008 migration DNS trouble

Yes remove the forwarders, and let the server use the Root Hints to get what it needs. You might make sure your Root Hints are up to date, just in case.

Ok so here's the deal:

2008 domain
GPP extension on all clients

Old server:
2003 32bit
has ~150 network printers
old name

New server:
2008 x64
cannot have same name as old server

My questions:

Since I can't use Print Migrator 3.1 (from 2003 to 2008 x64) can I install the new printers on the new server without conflicting with the old printers/server? If so I should just be able to roll the new printers out via GPP to each respective OU, right? Any advice on removing the old printers from the clients? It's 4-500 clients so I can't touch each one physically. I'm aware I will need x64 drivers when installing on the server then will need to manually add the 32bit drivers during each install (on the server).

Any advice would be appreciated. I've migrated 20-30 printers but never 150 off one server before.
 

Answer:Advice for print server cutover? (Server 2008 x64)

From my experience you can add the printers on any server without conflict. They are basically just "there" and people can connect to them if they want to. So you should be able to set up the printers on the new server without issue.

I don't know much about removing the existing printers from the client machines, especially with GPP. I have to brush up on my GPP skills as well as upgrade my functional domain level.

I was researching a script to delete all printers when the clients logged in and got it working, but never used it other than testing.

Im running into issues with a Terminal Server I setup. We migrated from a Terminal Server running on Server 2003, to a new server running Server 2008. All of our applications are running just fine in the new 64 bit OS, however my users want to use Firefox on it, but we are having a lot of issues with it. Firefox installs fine, and you can browse web sites with it, but anytime you try to browse the filesystem on the server it freezes. If I try to just do a file open, once it brings up the filesystem the browser freezes. This is important, as we need to import SSL certificates into it for our users to be able to access certain resources. Has anyone seen this, or have any suggestions on how to fix it. I have tried to uninstall, reinstall different versions, they all seem to be doing it.

Hi guys,
 
What free Antivirus software for servers?
What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea?
 
Info:
My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet..  He uses 2 laptops at the most  to access files on the server.
 
However at some points he will update Windows Server 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet., and obviously leave himself open to malware etc. for a short time.
 
The cost of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for 10 workstations upwards, and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down.
 
 
Questions:
I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution.
 
Also, if he got Malware on it (e.g. Rootkit or Delta) would current Bleeping Computer tools (e.g. Rkill, RogueKiller etc) still work on the server - or does it require another approach? 
 
I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open.
 
 
Thanks in advance guys
 
 
 
 
 

Answer:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
 
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

We had:

2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?
 

Answer:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

A friend is moving his business, and the new business park that he's setting up shop in does not have anyway to get any wired internet to his building, excluding a T1 line, which he can't justify the cost of.

One windows 7 machine acts as the server, primarily for Quickbooks database, and there are two other windows 7 machines that are clients, reading off said database.

He's getting one of those usb dongles for wireless internet service, for the server only (the other two computers will be tethered to a smartphone for internet for QB and windows updates periodically).

They do NOT want to share the servers wireless connection to the other machines.

My only concern was if the server will continue to try to check the LAN for internet connectivity, or will it check both network connections when one fails, or is there a setting I can tell them to change to ensure it knows to go to the wireless dongle for internet all the time, without interfering with the workstations talking to the server over the LAN to get to the database?

The setup at the old office was business class DSL, they are using a relatively new Linksys router, which had the DSL authentication information.

Thank you!

Answer:LAN network for server/client only, USB hotspot for server internet.

I managed to find a solution this morning, for anyone that's interested, the whole article is here: Multiple Network Connections at the Same Time on Windows | Ivan Zlatev

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

Ok.. here is the dilemma. I have a Windows Server 2003 Running Active Directory and 1 Domain. I am looking at upgrading to a 1u Rack mount server and was wondering if anyone has any tips for me before starting. The biggest hurdle that I know of is going to be exporting all the settings and users from the 2003 box to the 2008 system. If anyone can give me any tips or share some resources of things I need to do to prepare please let me know. I am kind of new to the whole migrating to a new system. Especially in Windows Server.

Thanks in advance.

from my MSDN subscription i can get a copy of server 2008. (x86 or x64)

but i was toying with the idea of windows home server.

it will be going onto a 3600X2 on a k9agm2 with 2 gig of ram in my sig (which you cant see!) as i retire the old fileserver and upgrade the development box.

It will need to run SQL server 2008 (low load) and a couple of asp.net websites. as well as the families Media sharing, Document sharing and backups

i like the simplicity of WHS buti'm not bothered about the configuration of server 2008 either,

i really like the idea as hard drives appearing as one pool.

question is is the simplicity wortth the £100 for WHS and can i do everything i need to on WHS

It is insane how much system requirements for Windows servers are now. I setup a 266mzh overclocked Nslug for a client office. They only have five users. It runs Debian like a champ. Another Nslug is handling OpenVPN at 266mhz. They only eat 5 watts each.

So I have a client that has a dying server and we are replacing it with a new server running Server 2008 R2. They are currently running server 2003 R2 and it is their domain controller. I've googled around quite a bit, but I'm having trouble understanding exactly the right steps that I need to do and in what order. Here's what I understand so far:

1: Set a static IP on the new server with it's DNS pointing to the IP of the main DC server.
2: forestprep and domainprep the old server with ADPREP located on the Server 2008 R2 DVD.
3: Run DCPROMO on the new server and make it an aditional domain controller.
4: Follow the rest of the steps from the site below.
5: Once it's all working, run DCPROMO on the old server to demote it.

What I'm also wondering, how long does it take for these things to replicate over? Is there a way to force it?

Basically this page seems to tell me what steps I need to do. (It doing it from 2000 - 2003 but I'm assuming the principles are the same.)

Looks like it is time to get out the ESXi server again. I may borrow another server from work just so I can have multiple clients joined to the virtual 2003 domain to practice with.

Answer:Server 2003 to Server 2008 R2 DC Upgrade

Your steps sound accurate to me from what I've read.

As far as replication time, I think that depends on the size
of what you're working with.

Answer:Server 2008 for home server... Opinions please.

Not sure what opinions you want. All I can say is that you don't need server 2008 R2 to complete your desired tasks. Any basic Windows client OS should work.

EDIT: It should be noted that Windows Server OS's are enterprise standards therefore a lot of home license applications will not install unless it is open source. You will need to purchase enterprise licenses of software for them to be installed on the server. This is particularly important with Anti-Virus solutions.

Hey guys,

Here at my customer we are tinkering around with a few things. My boss would like me to try and implement our Server 2008 x64 machine as a print server. He would like me to remove the printers from the 3 other servers (All are 2003 Standard) so that we have one centralized source for printers. I've been messing around with it for a little while, and it seems very nice.

I'm having an issue with one of the printers, which I expect to have on a few others. I am trying to use 1 printer / user as a test, which is an HP Color Laserjet 1600. About 95% of all of the printers we are using are HP. He also would like to make sure we use the HP Universal Print Driver, which makes sense. I am attempting to set all of this up on the Server 2008. I've installed the printer on the server using the TCP/IP address, and listed it on the directory. On the user's computer, which is Windows XP x32 w/ SP2, I attempt to add the printer.

I then get an error message from the Universal driver in Windows Xp stating that it is the wrong driver for the printer, and wants me to install a different driver. I've also tried downloading the x64 1600 Driver and installing that onto the server, however I get the following error message:

Hi all
Have been a LONG LONG user of Linux as a server (hosting VM's XP / W7 mix) and file / print sharing.

I used to avoid MS like the plague as far as SERVER environments are concerned - probably because my first experince was Windows NT (Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks) which was SO HORRIBLE that it put me off Windows servers for ages.

(Note I'm using a server in a HOME environment where we have around 8 machines (most of which are actually mine for testing -- not a corporate environment which has other considerations).

The problem now with the latest Linux distros that they are trying to be "A Better Windows than Windows". You can of course customize them but I haven't got the time or patience to do this any more. To select what packages to install / leave out now is a 100% pain and if you do it wrong the chances are the system will give errors.

I've looked at the new SUSE 11.2 -- slick and polished - bit I don't NEED "an alternative Windows".

I've just been looking at Windows Server 2008 R2 (got it from Technet) and I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with it so far. I've installed the STANDARD version - you don't need datacenter or Enterprise version for a home server.

It runs vmware server on it just fine (although I might go the whole hog and use the Hyper-V virtualisation -- need to do a bit more research).

So, I really like Windows Home Server a lot, but I want to use a domain with Windows Server 2008. What kind of software could I use (third party, Microsoft) to get the functionality of WHS? I'm looking at the media streaming and easy backups for all client users. I can do remote access using VNC, so that's not a problem. And I know of software that can make the library online (as a web server).

Would my best option to make the Server 2008 a web server and just put a page on there to stream the music that way (as well as shared folders for the XBox)? And what software can do effecient backups similar to WHS?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Server 2008 -> Windows Home Server

Why not just use 2008 server as a file server
- shares for the Xbox
- web page for the music (although you can use shares as well)

theres all sorts of backups you can do.
Acronis backing up to the server autmatically
NTBackup backing up files/folders to the server
- all those should work fine on server 2008

Are the computers going to be part of the domain too?
XBox would probably need some sort of user/pass to access a domain server

Hey guys, I have two domain controllers running Server 2008 x64, and I want to move them both to R2. What do I need to do to make this migration happen? Is there any type of in place upgrade solution? Do I need to do anything with the FSMO roles for this? The servers also take care of DNS and DHCP for my users. And one of them is also a print server. Any kind of basic checklist for this sort of thing would be great. Thanks!
 

Answer:Server 2008 x64 to Server 2008 R2 migration for DC's.

You can do an in-place upgrade, as long as the current DCs are x64 (which you've already stated).

Here's my list:

Very important: Take a system state backup of one of the DCs.
Verify replication topology
Verify that replication is healthy between both DCs
Check event logs for anything weird
Run adprep /forestprep and domainprep on the schema master to prep the domain for R2 DCs
Move the FSMO roles off of the server that you're going to upgrade first
Verify that the roles have actually moved and that the change replicated
Check the location of primary/secondary DNS for each DC
Upgrade

If you had three DCs, what you could also do is completely take down one of the DCs until the upgrade was successful on the other two. That leaves you with a completely intact, untouched DC that you could use to perform an authoritative restore on the other two should things get really FUBAR.

DNS shouldn't be a concern since users willl hopefully hit the other DC. DHCP will be a problem as users won't be able to get an IP while the DHCP box is down. I can't say for sure about printers as I avoid print servers like the plague

I think that's everything. I'll post more if I remember something else.

Hello,
I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task.

Hello all!

I wanted to double check with you guys on whether or not I should do this or not. I am currently using Windows Vista Ultimate as my home server. The home server currently is nothing more than a file server for all my media. I experience constant "hangs" when trying to access media from my laptop and main PC (also both Windows Vista Ultimate). All are on gigabit lan (DLINK DIR-655) and move things back and forth fast...but at times if I try to open a song or something from another machine...it hangs and generally takes 20-30 seconds before it plays the song. Something is screwy with Vista for sure!

The current setup I have is as follows:

* CoolerMaster Elite 330 Case
* Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H 780G motherboard
* AMD X2 AM2 BE 2400 2.3GHZ
* 3GB Kingston ValueRam
* 1 Samsung 80gb SATA (Operating System)
* 2X Western Digital 500gb SATA (media is stored on these)

Now, I would like to move to either Windows Server 2003 (which we all use at work....right) or Windows Server 2008 (something I am just getting into). I would prefer to install Server 2008 so I can familiarize myself with the OS, but is it a bit overkill for a "File Server"?

I work in a mixed environment OSX 10.6 and Windows 7. I want to consolidate the print servers into one Server 2008 R2 server for both types of clients. The Windows are fine, simple print sharing scenario.

For OSX users, from what I understand I need to setup the printer as an LPR port. When I do that, I am able to go to the OSX client, go to add printer, click IP, I can enter the print server name and the queue name (manually) and it prints ok.

I have a few problems though, first of all, is there a way to have the printer show up in anyway so that I can just double click on it from the OSX client and have it connect like a bonjour share. Second, I can enter any queue name on the OSX client and it shows as connected even if it isn't a printer at all.

Hey.

So I'm no DB master, I'm just trying to figure out why this server is running like it is.

We have a WhatsUp Gold server, it's a T300, E6405 (2.13 Ghz), 4 Gig ram.
The original setup was dual WD2502ABYS drives in RAID 1 (software raid...blegh)
I've moved the dbase on to a WD3000HLFS to give it the IO speed it needs.

I've tested the drive and it peaks at 125 Meg/sec read and/or Write. So the hardware is performing as it should. So now I need to look deeper at this database and I don't know what I'm looking at. I don't know if the WhatsUp Gold Database designers made this thing to run stupid slow or what. Here are my %Disk Time and Current Disk Queue stats:

(All on a scale of 100.0)
%Disk Time
Last - 160.00
Average - 351.943
Max - 3,595.800

Current Disk Queue
Last - 60
Average 10
Max 129

Avg Disk Queue Length
Last - 77
Average - 64
Max - 287.453

To my understanding that's really high. However HDTune Pro shows
Read
Speed - 6.6 MB/sec
Max - 12.4 MB/sec
I/O - 164/sec

Write
Speed - 2.8 MB/sec
Mac - 43.8 MB/sec
I/O - 120/sec

That seems somewhat low to me for the amount length of the disk queue and disk time?
The whole reason for this, WhatsUp Gold is timing out while trying to either read or write to the database so I'm trying to resolve that issue. The dbase size is about 24 gig right now.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi All,
After patching the updates of an existing Windows 8.1pro Client, I'm unable to connect to shared folder of Windows 2003 Server...But, you can connect by typing the IP of the Server....Eg: \\192.168.1.2 but not by the Server name...eg: \\Tac-Server...
Please note that the Windows update went smoothly without any error and now it's showing no more windows update but directly upgrade to Windows 10.
Can you please help me to sort out this issue.
Thanks
Prabhath
