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.)

I have one PC setup with Win2K Professional. It is used as a game server, sharing the cable modem, file server, and web server. I am replacing it with another PC that has Win2K Server. I have saved all the security updates from the old pc (in the Q######_whatever.exe format). Should I apply these updates to the new PC? I have about 30 of these updates. I've went to the Windows update site and got all the critical updates, but I know there are other bugs out there and I'd like to have this PC as secure as possible.

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone may be able to help me with the following. I tried to use VMware's free "converter" software to convert my physical HP machine to a virtual machine. However, when trying to run the virtual machine, it says that the virtual machine has two processors & that it is limited to only using one processor, & therefore, will not start. The physical machine is a dual core processor, but I see no way to configure the virtual machine so that it only has one processor.

It seems to me the software should just configure itself to at least run, and from there a person can try to tweak the settings and be advised if there are limitations at that point, but that would make to much sense. Alternatively, they could provide an easy way to change the settings so you can at least get the thing to run, but again, that would make to much sense.

Anyway, if anyone can help me get the virtual machine clone running, please let me know.

Thanks
John

Guys I am bewildered. Somewhere during installing codecs and getting the FRUCTA virus I believe, my Win2k Pro install has morphed into Win2k SERVER. Complete with Server Family bootup splash screen, shutdown screen, "Server" start menu banner, etc. Some software won't even install due to it reporting itself as Server instead of Pro. I've went through all the updates on this fresh install and I have no idea what has happened.Any thoughts on what caused this and how to get back to Pro without a reinstall? I can reinstall but I'm afraid it'll happen again if I don't know what caused it in the first place.I know this OS is old and I need a new pc, etc but at this time I cannot upgrade either. Thanks.

Answer:Win2k Pro has morphed into Win2k Server

Sounds more like you were hacked instead of a virus.Personally I would wipe the drive and reinstall pro from scratch or there maybe a backdoor for the hacker.Make sure you install a software firewall and antivirus/antispyware BEFORE you connect to the internet if you are not behind a router.

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.

My machine has a non-clean install of win 10, which I have been using for months. I would like to do a clean install of windows 10, but I don't want to be down for days getting everything setup. So I figured I would run it in a VM on the newly installed OS while I set things up on new machine.

I used disk2vhd to create VHDX files from my c and d drive (users folder on d). I created a VM and added the disks. But hypervisor won't recogize the disk as bootable.

I am thinking this is because my host uses UEFI, so the VHDX's were created with a VHDX instead of mbr? I have tried booting the VM using the window install disk to do bootred /rebuildbcd, but the command fails, I am guessing because it doesn't work on UEFI disks?

Any suggestsions?

Answer:Create VM from physical machine

By default Hyper-V creates a new vm as Generation 1 (BIOS / MBR). If your vhd file is UEFI /GPT, you need to set the new vm as Generation 2 (UEFI).

Answer:Is there a way to change the physical address of a machine?

Not change, but spoof it. On windows it would take 3rd party software. I have never used any so I can't recommend any.

I recently added a hot swap sata tray to my workstation at the office to help with virii scanning/disk repair. The tray works fine and I can access drives just fine, but it would be really great if I could also use the tray to mount a physical drive in a virtual machine to give me a layer of protection from infected drives.

I am somewhat familiar with MS Virtual Server 2005, and use it in a few client installations. I can successfully link the physical drive to a virtual drive, but VS does not allow linked drives to be mounted in a vm, so I cannot do what I want unless I clone the physical drive to a virtual drive, which will add lots of time to the process. I can't find any other way to access a physical drive, but maybe I'm missing something.

I've never used VMware's products, but wouldn't mind learning if they could do what I'm trying to accomplish. Do any of their free products do this? If so, which one?

Thanks for any input.

Hi everyone. I am pretty stumped right now. I have a bunch of old laptops that run Windows 95 with software that will only run on them. We want to convert these to virtual machines because the laptops could die any day. Here's what I've tried so far:

Using VMWare Converter:
1. Tried to install it on the laptop running Windows 95 - couldn't install, the OS is not supported.
2. From a WinXP computer, running VMWare Converter and going through the network to back it up. Error - Unable to connect to the remote VMWare Converter Agent. The remote host is not accessible using Microsoft Network Services. Fyi I can get to everywhere on the network with this laptop.

I tried making an image of the laptop drive using Acronis True Image Echo Workstation. This created a .tib file. VMWare Converter is supposed to be able to convert .tib files to a virtual machine. I tried this and got the error message "Unable to load the source virtual machine or image. The file might be corrupt, or of an unsupported format."

Through the Acronis program, there is also an option to Convert Backup to Virtual Disk. So I took the .tib file I had and did just this. It actually finished but only created a .vmdk file and nothing else, just that single .vmdk file. I don't know what to do with just that file. Usually there are configuration files that go along with it, like a .vmx file.

The Samba Sever is for file sharing. You did not state the OS on the new PC, but if it's truley a

I'm always doing the weirdest configurations

The point here is that I need to run a service which uses a very high ammount of traffic (in WAN terms, the LAN wouldn't be affected since it's 2 MBs/sec top).

So instead of having 2 boxes, I want certain services to go out through the physical NIC's default gateway (one ISP) and all the traffic generated by the VM, through the other ISP.

How can that be done? I can use either VM Ware, Microsoft's solution or Virtual Box, since I still don't have anything set-up.

I did some testing.... using VM Ware with the VM configured as directly connected to the network, I used on the virtual NIC the secondary ISP's router address, as the default gateway, but all the traffic ended up going through the primary ISP.

Show me your ideas, please
 

Answer:A virtual machine: how to use a different default gateway than the physical host?

Most virtualization software has a bridge driver separate from the physical NIC drivers. This means that when in bridged mode, the guest machine can be configured with completely independent IP settings. If you have the VM configured to go out a secondary gateway, everything should work as expected. I have done this before for various test set ups.

PIII 800MHz machine with 384mg ram, clean install of Windows 2000 with all updates and service packs. There are 4 pci slots and the brand new modem is not seen in any of them. I thought it might be a bad card so I took it back, got another (same make and model) and got the same result. In device manager there is no modem listed, scanned for new hardware after inserting in each of the pci slots. I thought that maybe it needed drivers to be seen, but the installation disk exited saying that no device was detected. The slots work as there is a nic card loaded and recognized. I tried the nic in all the slots and it was seen and worked fine in each. Took the second card back and the store installed it in an XP machine and I am wiping the egg of my face because it showed the new hardware window and the drivers loaded from the CD with no problem. I am heading back there on Monday because I want their technician to load it in a Win2k machine. Until then, any ideas on why it was not seen?Thanks

It seems like in the past few months, my win2000 laptop has been running poorly. Memory seems to be filling up and lots of swapping (disk activity) every time I switch between active windows.

I have 392Mbytes installed and right now-for example, task manager says I am using 680Mbytes of memory. This seems like a huge amount to me. I do have 6 explorer web pages open but I did that in the past without noticably slowing down the machine and changing active windows.

Is there some software that could have attached itself to my machine and is just eating up memory?

If I reboot the PC, things get better for a little while, but then seem to slow down again.

Any ideas or is this normal?

Thanks
 

Answer:Excessive memory use on Win2k machine

It might be that the memory is not being properly distributed if you know what I mean. There is a tool that can manage your memory. Check www.download.com for some good programs.

Other than that, maybe you can post a HighJackThis log here so we can see if there is any programs running in the backround.

I have an old laptop. Its unique because its 12" and quite small. Its only 266mhz and im currently running DSL linux on it.
I tried copying the setup files win2k into into the drive after formatting the hard drive with a Windows 98 boot disk. Windows 2000 installed fine up until the point where it would restart and finalize the setup. It would give me the error of ntloader not found. I did some googling and I don't think most of that stuff applies to me. I wasn't upgrading, its a fat32 formatted 12gig drive that shouldn't cause any problems so im going to conclude that the BIOS probably doesn't know what the heck NTloader is.

I have obviously searched for a bios update... but I don't htink the company even exists anymore

My father has a Windows 2000 desktop which until recently was working fine. Because no modern on-access antivirus works on Win2k, I didn't have him using any; instead I had just installed a firewall, and Firefox with Noscript, and made sure it had all the updates applied. There was also Hitman Pro installed as an on-demand scanner. I figured this would be enough, given his surfing habits. Apparently it wasn't.Yesterday a routine scan with Hitman Pro resulted in a complete system crash. Reproducing the crash in Safe Mode (with networking) gave me a nice bluescreen with an error indicating a page fault in atapi.sys. Hitman Pro had never done this before.After this I attempted to do a scan from the AVG Antivirus Live CD. However, the command line scanner exited with an error on reaching a certain file (and didn't tell me what the error message was). I'm still not sure why this happened; I suspect a bug in the current version of the live CD, though I do wonder if it's possible for malicious code to execute when scanned by an antivirus...(I would have used the Kaspersky, DrWeb, or Avira live CDs, BTW, but those all have problems with the computer's video card.)Anyway, bit of Googling seemed to indicate that TDSS can cause crashes like what I observed.

Answer:Win2k server , Win2k worstation - can add to domain but not logon to domain

when you're logged on locally, is everything in ipconfig correct? when you run an nslookup on the domain, does it return your dns servers? DNS is the root of many evils in a w2k environment, but it's odd that only the one machine would be affected.

This is going to be long but please hear me out I'm desperate for help.

It began when one of my RAM sticks failed. After some assistance from my friend in figuring out the RAM was the problem I removed the offending stick and everything seemed back to normal except I wasn't getting any internet on my computer, showing a red x over the internet icon. Windows 7. I ran the troubleshooter and it said that the VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter was experiencing problems, vague I know. I also found it weird because why would VirtualBox problems have anything to do with the connection on my physical machine?

Anyway I visited my friend who let me use his computer to download clean drivers and he was kind enough to give me a spare network card to try. Neither solution made any difference even though everything else seems in normal working order.

I'm having to post this off my grandma's flat touch screen thingy, proof our internet is still on. Idk how to backspace without deleting my text.

I've recently finished building a new machine for a friend (first bad idea). The harddrive is a 200gb maxtor, and the machine is running win2k pro, w/ sp4. At first I had trouble getting it to see more than 129gb. I made a new win2k boot disc with sp4, then it recognized all 200gb.

My friend ran the machine for about a week and a half, and as he was copying files to the hd, he started getting write errors saying the drive was corrupt. When he rebooted, after the cmos screen it just went black and said "error loading operating system". I tried to repair the machine using the recovery console, and did fixboot and fixmbr. But didn't have much luck. So I formatted and reinstalled windows. Another aprox week and a half later, while downloading some files he basicly had the same problem.

I'm having trouble reviving the machine, and think I'm giong to be forced to format and reinstall once again!!

Any idea why this keeps happening? I ran the powermax scan on the drive and it reports it to be error free. Could my friend have gotten a boot sector virus twice? Or is it more likely a configuraton problem?

One thing that I never did after installing windows was to edit the registry to enable 48-bit LBA support. I had assumed that since win2k sp4 recongized all 200gb of the drive, I didn't have to add the registry value for lba support. Think that could be the problem?

I'm never building a computer for someone again...

Thanks for your help!... Read more

Answer:New win2k machine w/ 200gb harddrive keeps getting corrupt

SP4 takes card of 48 bit support. The first thing that comes to mind is a memory issue. Have you checked the memory with a mem tester? Here is a link to memtest; it will run from bootable media so there is no need for an os to be installed.

Next post exact specs on the system. Some memory likes to have the default voltage raised to 2.6 / 2.7 to run error free.

Is the system overclocked by chance?

Hi everyone. I seem to be having some more problems with Windows.

This is an AMD 1.2GHz machine with 256MB RAM, a 60GB hard drive, and Windows 2000 Professional.

The machine will sit there running only a couple programs, such as VNC and an IRC client. After several hours, it will just freeze and become completely unresponsive. I've checked for memory errors using memtest86 as well as other memory testing programs, so I'm pretty certain it's not the RAM.

From the last freeze, the following was in the event viewer:

Answer:Another Win2k Machine Freezing After Light Operation

Three of the errors seem to be network related. Check your network properties, drivers, etc.

The other two are interesting. They could just be casualties of the previous errors, but they SHOULD mean something. Is your removeable storage network based? If it's USB, do you have any USB network devices?

I'm lost as to system event notify.

Are any programs open when it freezes? Make sure you have everything closed. It still could be some software you're running. It could also be spyware, run checks on that. If you're still having troubles, you can post a HijackThis log so we can see what's runnin'.

I hope you installed one of them in a separate partition, or they're all tangled up with each other. Tell us more about the installation.

I've attempted to add the laptop to my home network (Linksys router) with no luck. All I managed to do was delete my laptop from the corporate domain.

Any suggestions on connecting the two machines to do some simple file sharing?

My new employer recently gave me a laptop with Win2K on it and I can not get it to access a shared folder on my home machine that has Win XP Pro on it. I am doing this over my 802.11b network at home.

The message I receive when I double click on the icon for my Win XP machine in networking neighborhood on my Win2K machine is "The network place could not be added because the following error has occurred: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request." I have never scene this type of error before and have no idea how to resolve it.

As background, my Win XP Pro machine is part of a simple workgroup I created via the "Set up a Home Network" wizard in Win XP. However, my work network is on a domain - I am not sure what that means but when I log onto my work machine, the Win2K laptop, I have to type [email protected][domain name] which I believe means we use a "domain-based network.

Any advice on how I can resolve this problem would be much
appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Problems File Sharing from Win2K to XP Pro Machine

What it sounds like you need to do is to log on to the work laptop "Locally" instead of trying to log onto the domain. I don't know how it is even letting you log into the domain. Since if you are at home you wouldn't have a domain controller avail to log onto. But anyway, try logging in on that local machine and also make sure that workgroup is set to workgroup. Unless your XP machine has got a workgroup named something other than workgroup. If so, named the laptop workgroup the same.

I have a home network set up, with my primary computer being a WinXP Pro machine. I used to have a Win95 and a Win98 machine hooked up in the network as well. I was previously able to remote desktop into my WinXP machine without an issue. I am using the Windows remote desktop feature, but I'm using a non-standard port, with the port open on my router, and my WinXP machine. Last week, I replaced the Win98 machine with a Win2k machine, and I am now not able to remote desktop into my XP machine. Is there something I need to do on the 2k machine? Could it be blocking remote access to my XP machine somehow?

Hello,

I work for a local high school and have been having a lot of problems sharing a printer attached to a Windows 2000 machine by an parallel cable. I'm trying to share the printer with 2 Windows XP Pro machines. All 3 PCs have the same logon and I have granted access to the printer for that account. File and printer sharing are also checked on all 3 PCs.

Here is a little more information since I had a lot of problems getting this to work. We have a LAN and Novell Server in the school, but the only manages the office PCs. All the PCs are part of workgroups with each room being its own workgroup. The 3 PCs I'm working with are attached to network drops. I could not use the Add Printer Wizard to have the two XP PCs find the printer after it was shared. I had to get the IP address of the 2000 machine and then type in that IP address under run on the two XP PCs. I then double clicked on the shared printer that showed up and installed the drivers. The printer shows up on the two XP PCs as HPDesk 990 on x.x.x.x (the IP address of the 2000 machine). When I first added the printer, it worked fine. After rebooting however, I cannot access it. It just shows Access Denied. The only thing I can think of is that the logon on Windows 2000 requires a password but you don't have to enter as password to login on the two XP machines.

Is there anything else I need to check for? Thanks.

Answer:Access denied when trying to share LPT attached printer on Win2K machine

Make sure those PCs are ALL in the SAME workgroup, otherwise NO share.
And using a password is a good thing for a flawless connection, even if all passwords are the same.

I am useless with computers. I was able to access the internet for a couple of months through my ethernet cable, plugged in to the port at my university in my room. However, recently I haven't been able to get onto the internet, and get the message 'cannot to communicate with your primary DNS server (fe80::1c2a:3943:f118:8dd3%8)' also, i have noticed after doing ipconfig /all that my laptop has no physical address. I have contacted 4 different IT technicians at my university and they say its nothing to do with the port in my wall, however they are still unable to come up with a solution. I would greatly appreciate any help.
 

Answer:no physical address, no communication with primary DNS server

A big help would be some information.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

I am trying to dial in to the server using RAS with a Dial up connection on the XP machine but for some reason I am able to connect and stay connected but I am unable to browse any of the network resources.

This connection worked fine until after I installed SP3, some hot fixes and ISA SP1. Unfortunately I loaded all my updates at one time without testing between them so I am not sure which one caused the problem.

Hey all.

I have a slightly misconfigured Win2k server that's showing error messages in the even log that I'm trying to get rid of.

The problems stem from a botched batch process that I ran to alter some access rights of all the resources on the server (trying to remove the group Everyone from everything), but I digress...

I want to know what DCOM (or COM+) is, but I'm gaving problems finding out more than that it's a distributed process manager, or something like that.

This server in question is a standalone web and application server. What are the advantages/disadvantages of having DCOM running? Is this something I should or can remove from the server?

I'm am running Windows 2K server within a SOHO style network. I getting ready to set up a DSL router/modem attached to a separate NIC on my server. I'm wondering the best way to set this up so that I can both share the internet connection, protect my workstations, and provide VPN to outside connections.

I've read about the setup of Internet Connection Server with NAT or how to setup VPN but have gotten mixed results on the possibility to run both on the same server.

Is this possible? If not, how do I setup both share the internet connection through the server and router and setup a VPN?

Brian
 

Answer:Win2K Server with NAT and VPN?

You'll have to use Routing And Remote Access. Your server will be cofigured as a LAN and Demand-DialUp router and a Remote Access Server.

You'll have two Nic cards in your server, one for the DSL connection, the other for the LAN. The DSL connection will need a static IP address to be an effective VPN solution. One will be configured as a local area connection, the other as the outside connection. In RRAS you configure the Interfaces, Ports and Remote Access Policies.

This is a quick rundown, Microsoft has several papers on it, try searching the Microsoft Technet site for VPN Deployment.

Question: win2k server HELP!

Hi all..
Ok quick question...basically I'm learning win2kserver at the mo and a bit confused about a few issues.
Namely..if the server is NOT running terminal services, am I correct in assuming that each application available to a user must be installed on EACH workstation on the network. So say for instance theres 35 machines, all will need to have Office installed, all will have to have Dreamweaver installed etc. Then depending upon the permissions and policies I set to users and groups dictates who has access to those applications?
Further more. All user files will be saved to the server. Where do I add the file path back to the server's my docs.
And finally, if the server is running Active Directory, and the workstations run XP how do I get the client work stations to talk to active directory so that any user can log on and utilise the given permissions I have set for him or her.

Thanks ALL

Answer:DNS Server for Win2k

I'm assuming that computer's going to be plugged into the World Wide Web through some internet connection from your house. If so, you don' t need any local DNS.

You can do this several ways. First, you can get an account at geocities or something like that, then make a frame with the source being your computer at home. A second way you can do it is by getting a domain name (I got mine from godaddy.com) and then use a free DNS solution (I use zoneedit.com) to make your connection work. At zoneedit, you can either use the redirect or the IP address feature to point to your machine. If you are going to use port 80 for the webserver (meaning a true to blue domain name service), you can use the host header thing to block out everyone BUT the people who accessed your computer through yourWebSite.com. That's how I do mine.

I'm not sure if I answered your question, but I'm sure at least one of these sentences helped.

Dear all,
I have two nb, a 6000 and a 6100. Never had any probs with the 6000, but my 6100 gives me a real hard time:
The battery was fully loaded, when out of nowhere the whole thing froze... had no chance but pressing the silver power button to shutdown, thing switched off, two LEDs still green (which is normal, right?)
Pushed the silver power button again to reboot, nothing happened.
Plugged off the AC power supply (as the battery was fully loaded, see above...): ALL LEDs turned blank, no lights at all.
Pushed the button again, NO REACTION AT ALL, the whole thing completely DEAD!!!

What might have caused this? what can I do? any help appreciated, thanks.

Answer:Satellite Pro 6100: no LEDs at all, machine does not function anymore

Hi,

it seems there is a hardware error which couldn?t be repaired by an biosupdate or something. You will have to bring your machine to an authorized service partner for repair/hardwarecheckup. A friend of mine had a similar problem with his 6100 with exactly the same symptoms and his "motherboard" was defective. But at this time his machine was still in warranty so I don?t know how?s with your mobile.

So yeah, for simplicity's sake let's take a hypothetical situation and say mom and pop are trying to keep a horny teenager off dirty websites. There's two options: a transparent proxy, or a standalone proxy (both powered by Dansguardian, of course). If we go with the transparent, the kid can just yank the box off the network, directly connect, and he's surfin' porn again. If we go standalone it's even easier, all he has to do it turn off the proxy option from Windows.

Assume that there's no talking with this kid; he'll do whatever it takes to get porn. The only solution is to force him to go through the box. So what do we do? My brain is fried here, I can't think of anything. The best I could come up with is to block all HTTP traffic to everything except the proxy from the router, and then the internet will only work if the proxy is used. Of course, the router's username and password would be kept secret. What do you think? Can you think of a better solution?

And just for the record, the situation above is fake, I'm just wonder how best to keep my kids safe (they're pretty responsible, I'm just paranoid). And no, answers like "talk it over with them" and "good parenting" don't count.
 

Answer:Forcing clients to use proxy server, when they have physical access to the box?

If you had a transparent proxy set up, you could physically secure it and your networking gear so that the kid couldn't physically bypass it. It sounds like an extreme way to protect kids from "bad things" on the internet, but it's always an option. And if you actually want to make sure the kid can't access porn, you'll have to deny all sites and then only allow ones you have approved. Otherwise there will always be a ton of sites that aren't blocked and the kid will still get his porn anyway.

Answer:Error on win2k server

Are you running multiple DC's in a parent child fashion? If so check this out -

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;316239

If not check all your servers DNS settings and make sure its pointing to the internal DNS resolver and you have DNS forwarders on that headed out to your ISP.

I installed win 2k server and saved the directory that related to the previous O/s win98 se. What I wanted to know is how I would re install win98se and setup a dual boot between win98 and win2k how would I do that?

I was told it may be possible to re install win98 and it would ask for old or new windows this true?


Thanks
 

Answer:win2k server / win98se

Welcome to TechSpot

The only way to get them to work as you want, is to uninstall W2K Server, then reinstall W98 in partition C, nowhere else.
W2K can be installed later, but it must have its own partition, e.g. D.
Upon installation, W2K will automatically create the boot-menu from which you can choose your OS at startup

Installation sequence is: W95/W98/(NT)/W2K/ME/XP were W95 or W98 MUST be in partition C.

Please help!!! I have a Win2K Member Server with IIS 5.0 set up on my domain. We have recently had a problem where the server will deny access everynight and sometimes once thru the day. No services are stopped everything is running. No permissions have been changed. If I stop and restart the services it fixes the problem, but I have no idea what is causing this to happen.

Okay, I finally got the server set-up. Now I am attempting to change all my workstations, to make them logon the domain instead of the workgroup.

The connection appears to be intermittant at best. When I tell the workstation to use our domain, I receive a welcome message (thats good). But, within minutes, I lose the connection to the server. While transferring data, I received the error message: "the session has expired". I've continuously ping the server from the workstaion (and vice versa), and had no problems. I beleive this may be a problem with my settings, but I don't know what to change.

Hi guys, just wondering if its possible to upgrade the version of RDP (5.0 i think) thats in Windows Server 2000? It only supports 256 colours and it makes some of the programs we run look a bit ugly.

If not, is there a way to remove this 256 colour restriction?


Thanks

Hi guys,
We have about 50 PCs on our network and I want to set up a print server. Does anyone see anything wrong with setting up one of the DC's as a print server as well? Approx 30 of those PCs are in student labs, so not all of them are being used at the same time. So definitely no where near 50 people printing and logging on at the same time.

Whatcha think??

Thanks!
 

Answer:Win2k Print Server on DC??

Hi!
Technically there is nothing wrong with it as long as you take into account that it can use a lot of disk space (depends on where the main spooling occurs, but even queues use HD space) and of course that all this traffic can really slow the DC down.....

I have a new server that I installed Windows 2000 server on. I have been trying to add a user "tech" to the administrator group. This works fine for the most part. Let me start from the beginning. This new server is taking the place of an old one. The old one has a static IP address which the new one will have to use once it is online. The new server will also have the same name as the old one. So, in order to get the new server online, I have to add it to our companies domain. Once the new server is up, I go in and try to add the user "tech" to the administrator group by going to control panel, admin tools, computer management,local users and groups. I add "tech" user to users, then go into groups, administrator, I choose our companies domain and choose the user "tech" from the list. I click ok. The name then shows up as domain name\tech (s-1-5-21-208981-4041-350513269-328166375-133557). Now, when this user is added I am not logged into the domain. I then reboot after the user is added and try to log into the domain as "tech", but receive the error that the system cannot log you on because the user is not found. So, I log back onto the local machine and go back to the admin tools and look at the user and it is now listed as just the numbers I listed above. If I disjoin the computer from the domain and readd it, I can then add the user "tech" and it shows up as domain name\tech and I am then able to log into the doma... Read more

Also what ip numbers do I use in what spots? Currently the router is 192.168.0.1, what do I use for the server machine to force it to do the DNS instead of the router?

I cannot find a guide at the moment, but it is not too tough. Just log on to the server, install DNS and then create forward and reverse lookup zones for your network. Thats about it.

Maybe I can find a guide real quick to help you or plug my win2k server hard drive and boot it up so I can go through the steps a little more in depth.

"Attempt to set time which differs by more than 12 hours aborted"

I've followed the registry adjustments as per Microsoft to the word, and configured the time manually to be in sync. Yet I am still receiving this Event Error....

Answer:Xp pro and win2k server networking.

has the 2k server been set up as a domain controller or as a standalone
if it hosts a domain u will need to specify a ip address for the xp machine that falls within the same subnet of the server
or configure dhcp to aquire an ip address
also if the server is a dns server you may need to specify the ip address of the server
this is all configured on the lan card that is connected to the hub
security on the server may be preventing it
also if server uses active directory the xp machine will need to be set up within it

Hello all...

I have a stupid question that I can't find an answer to on MS website. I have an NT 4 domain, and I want to add a Win2k member server to it. All this server will do is run SQL and IIS so that we can prototype an intranet.

Can I add the Win2k server to my NT domain without screwing up my NT network? Is there anything I need to worry about/be careful when I do this? Or should I make the Win2k box a PDC in its own domain and set up a trust?

Upgrading my whole network to Win2k is not an option right now.

Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:Add Win2k server to NT domain

Yes you can add a Windows 2000 Member server to an NT domain. Don't bother trying to setup Active directory though. It will not work in that situation.

Since a member server does not do authentication, it will not affect the structure of the NT domain.
