Dear all,

I am trying to install advance server 2000 on a compaq proliant ML330 server, but the setup cannot detect my SCSI hard drive, which i am sure is working. I tried pressing F6 at the beginning of the setup to install a driver but then it says " an unexpected error occured at line 962........" I tried an IDE hard drive, which i had to plug into an IDE extension port through a PCI slot, and the motherboard is detecting it. Been trying to do it for weeks?!! has anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello all,

How are you today?

I've just finished building my Dream Machine today, and now seeking for advice from you masters out there.

I wonder if it is OK to have Windows 2000 Advance Server as the main OS for PC? Is it also designed to use per normal as other OS such as: Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2K Pro, Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Pro?

"Normal" in term of using it for day-to-day applications, such as playing games, Images & Movies editing, MS Office applications and so on beside its main function to work as a SERVER

Thank you for spending your valuable time to help me

Hi,
I'm facing problem getting Wingate 4.4.2 work on Windows 2000 Advance Server.
After installing the Wingate Server, with it's default settings, it simply doesn't work. When I try to access a website (from Wingate PC), I could see under <Activity> tab of gatekeeper my Server name and an unknown guest trying to do DNS lookup. It simply doesn't seems to go further than that. Even if a client try to access a website, <Activity> window displays name of client computer and URL it is trying to do DNS lookup, but no more progress. I am not using NAT on Wingate, ENS is installed. Do I need to configure anything else to make WinGate Server work under Windows 2000 Advance Server?

By-the-way my Server congiguration is as follows:
(1) Windows 2000 Advance Server ver. 5.0.2195 build 2195
(2) 256 MB SDRAM
(3) 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium 4 on Intel 845 Motherboard
(4) No DNS server, No DHCP server, No NAT configuration.
(5) Dialup connection to Internet.
(6) Windows 2000 Advance Server is hosting a Domain.
(7) All clients are Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2.0
(8) Clients do not use domain, there is only a peer-to-peer network established.
(9) Clients are configured to obtain IP automatically. Earlier I used Windows ICS to share dialup Internet connection. Network is working fine, I can ping server from all clients.

Your kind help will highly be appreciated.

regards,
Basanta Prakash Tandukar
 

Answer:Wingate 4.4.2 doesn't work in Windows 2000 Advance Server

Is Wingate just a proxy server or is it acting as a firewall as well? I would suspect that the server itself needs to have a DNS server listed for name resolution. Can the clients get to a web site with just it's IP address?

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

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

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

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

Thanks.

Hello to all, been setting up a new dell8450 server with 8gigs of ram to be our new sql server. So far I only installed AS2000 on the box. The bloody box won't let me connect to the network. It has static ip address and there are no conflicts. I'm abble to ping my self, but cannot see the rest of the network. I tried to get it to join a domain, but it refused, so it's part of its own workgroup. I'm trying to get it up on the network, the card works fine so does the cat5 cable. Any suggestions?

I am pulling my hair out on this one I set this server up 7 years ago with Advanced Server 2000. One of the only versions of windows that had a native drive mirror option since NT4. Anyways, There is no domain controller just a simple workgroup. I created local accounts on the file server that matched the accounts on the workstations (username/password) and added the users in the permissions on the shared folde and then mapped the drives on the corresponding workstations. Pretty straight forward and basic. Has been working fine for 7 years. Now I upgrade a workstation to a new PC running win 7 ultimate, ran the easy migration and everything seemed fine. EXCEPT it wont connect to the mapped drive. I have tried everything. Tried changing the credentials to the server account, local account,server administrator. I even tried dos "net use". Is there something with win7 I am missing with how the credentials work with older versions on windows?

Answer:HELP! Win 7 map drive on advance server 2000

You can fix this a couple ways using the registry or the local security policy. This is because of NTLMv2 policy's being different on Windows 7. This Technet thread should enable you to fix the problem fairly easily.
Good luck and let me know if it works.

on your win 7 machine, run regedit and go to
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
set the value to 1

If the key doesn't exist you need to create it. Needs to be a DWORD named LmCompatibilityLevel set to value of 1(one) at
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

And here's the background on that.

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

Answer:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

Cheers

I just installed Windows 2000 Advance Server recently to a Compaq Proliant ML530 server and found out that the license for this server is more expensive than Windows Server 2003 Standard. The SmartStart CD of the compaq does not support windows server 2003 and I don't want to manually re-configure everything and start all over again. Does Win2K A.S. support Windows Server 2003 upgrade?

Hiya

This document provides a list of the common upgrade requirement messages that you might receive when running Windows® Small Business Server 2003 Setup to upgrade a computer running Microsoft® Small Business Server 2000, Windows® 2000 Server, or Windows Server™ 2003. Only common blocking and warning requirements are covered in this paper. A blocking requirement prevents Setup from continuing, and a warning requirement notifies you of a condition that may cause problems with your installation.
When you first start Windows Small Business Server Setup, it automatically checks to ensure that operating system and upgrade requirements are met. If requirements are not met, you receive a blocking or warning message. There are also informational messages that may appear as part of the Setup requirements. You can use this information to prepare for your upgrade to Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Does anyone know what the calculations are for how much CPU/RAM you need for something like snort or any IDS to accurately keep track of X amount of hosts from your network using a SPAN or mirror port? Would these be based on each different IDS software or is there a general rule of thumb for something like this?

I was experimenting today with my VMware lab and setup port mirroring on my switch going into my vSwitch with promiscuous mode and Wireshark on the VM was going at the speed of light lol.

It depends on # of users and which IDS / UTM you are using. There's a few charts I've seen.

XP will run on your system, but unless you increase the memory to 512Mb minimum, it will crawl. In order to run a USB2 printer you will need to install a USB2 PCI card and associated drivers.

Hi,

could you please tell me the what should be the specifications of a machine on which i can host
a Java Struts Web application? we will be using Apache Tomcat Server and MYSQL(database).

It will be accessed by maximum 5 users,
has 2 dynamic pages accessing 3 to 4 MySql tables(having less than 10 columns each), and
interfaces with an email server.

i need the following information(we will be using windows):

1) Processor and speed
2) RAM
3) Hard disk space required
4) How many partitions of hard disk is needed and space to be allocated for each partition
5) should it be 32 bit or 64 bit(if i go in for 64 bit OS, will it support 32 bit applications -tomcat,mysql,web application developed on 32 bit machine)?

thanks,
 

Answer:Hardware requirement for hosting web application

Definitely 64bit, or you won't be able to utilize more than 4GB of RAM, moreover I think last Windows x86 server OS was Server 2008, pretty old in computer years.
You should probably get separate SSD for OS and store data on separate drive (not partition), if possible.
RAM is cheap today, so few extra Gigs shouldn't hurt your wallet.
Most of recent server CPUs should handle your loads fine.

Just a reminder for those using Win2000 and XP.

With the advent of Windows 7, the market shares of both Windows XP and Windows Vista have started bleeding, with users transitioning to the latest iteration of the Windows client. Still, although Windows 7 grabbed over 5% of the OS market, according to Net Applications, Windows XP is still the most used platform worldwide with a share of over 69%, with Vista at 18.55%. With the end near for the XP release that made Vista?s successor the ubiquitous OS worldwide, Microsoft is urging customers to upgrade to Windows 7. Microsoft plans to kill Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) on July 13, 2010. The Redmond company even has resources available to help customers make the jump from XP to Windows 7.

You may also receive one of the following error messages when you try to start or configure any other virtual machine in Windows Virtual PC.
To overcome this error Microsoft has expanded the Virtualization technology with this patch to run XP Mode on non compatible hardware infrastructure.

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

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

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

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

Our Layout:

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks, Anthony
 

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

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

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

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Now finally where I can't figure this out. There is supposed to be a part under Windows Components called Windows Update. I have no such listing for that in 2000 server. After going to a server with .net server on it, there is such a listing. Where can I find the Windows Update listing in the Active directory so that SUS will work???

I always used Windows XP on my machines because of INTEL's Hyperthreading. I'm upgrading to a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ on a NForce4 mobo. Can I use Windows 2000 now and take advantage of all the features, etc? I love 2K because it's less bloated.
 

Answer:Windows 2000 & New Hardware

You can easily make XP run as quick and snappy as Windows 2000. In my opinion, I would think XP would run faster on that hardware, simply because the drivers have all been optimized for XP for the hardware in question. In addition to this, on the hardware you are referring to for your old computer, if you think XP is running sluggish compared to Windows 2000...you probably have bigger issues, like forgotten chipset drivers, etc. On new or somewhat recent hardware, XP is your best choice.

Hi All

Am I right in thinking that they are both pretty similar except that server has support for multiple processors and extra network related tools and facilities. The reason I ask is that if a piece of software works on Windows 2000 server, is it extremely likely that it will work on Windows 2000 professional too? As a bit of background information: I work for a small company which supplies temperature monitoring equipment which needs to be networked. I've been told that it has been tested on Windows 2000 server but not on Window 2000 professional.

Thanks
 

Answer:Windows 2000 professional and Windows 2000 server: same?

Yes, the OS are pretty much the same. The server edition supports more than 10 simultaneous connections (for file and print sharing) and supports network stuff as you said. But those differences could potentially break an application depending on what it does and how it interacts with the OS.

I have just tried to install a usb2 card in my pc running windows 2000.The problem is when the hardware wizard has run it saya that 'an error occurred during the installation of the device.the data is invalid'.When i then enter the hardware manager the message reads'The device is not configured correctly[code1] to reinstall the drivers click reinstall drivers' which I do but then it goes back to the origional 'an error occurred' message.Is anyone able to help?

Answer:hardware conflicts in windows 2000

'This any good?click herehope this saves some time for someoneWhy do I get a "data is invalid" error when installing a driver in WindowsXP or 2000?This error appears to be due to a protection problem in the Windows registry and can occur with a variety of drivers (sound cards and SCSI drivers have been reported). To fix this problem, go to Start, Run... and type "regedt32" without the quotes to run the Registry Editor. Navigate toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ENUM\PCIand you will see a number of keys of the form "VEN_xxxx", where xxxx are strings like "1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_00011103&REV_04". Under each of these folders will be another folder with a long numerical name. Open each folder and look for the "DeviceDesc" which matches the hardware you are trying to install. Right Click on the "VEN_xxxx" for that device and select 'Permissions' and then tick "Allow" for "Full Control". Close Regedit and then continue with the installation of your device.

I plan to build a system with an Intel Core 2 E6600 with a NVidia 8800 GTX and was wondering if there is any big problem with running my copy of Windows 2000 Professional I already have. I still use it with my 3Ghz Pentium 4 and it's been perfect for me.

2K had it's time in the sun, now it's past. Get XP SP2 on there and you'll be fine. As most others will tell you, with any 64 bit OS you're going to encounter issues with gaming and drivers. I personally don't have any issues at all on this Core 2 Duo running at 1.66 GHz and using Intel GMA950 onboard graphics, so that monster you're going to build would absolutely scream with XP or Vista for most intents and purposes.

But sticking with 2K at this stage in the "game" of Windows and computer hardware would be like putting racing stripes and a Recaro seat on a Segway...

This is my last hope before I return everything back to the store,I recently brought a Belkin HIGH -SPEED MODE WIRELESS DESKTOP NETWORK CARD. 802.11g MODEL NUMBER F5D7001. VERSION 1000
I was running window 98 then upgraded to SE didn't work, so then I upgrade my BIOS so i am now running Phoenix award vg.00pg.(not sure if that is configured right yet) still nothing, so i upgraded to windows 2000.and still nothing. my processor is intel celeron 460mzh. 440 chipset family.

windows is not finding the new network card. I am not currently up to date on my updates on 2000 cuz somehow i keep download the online updates, My motherboard is an Asus p2-99(way out of date but since i just upgraded the Bios really hate to go and get a new one, can i update that more so i can down load the card.)

one more thing tried to install my cable modem on that computer and still nothing I got the card installed but cant get the modem installed. so download everything directly to the other computer is out.

What am I missing ,where can I download it.

Hi,

I'm in need of some suggestions on what type of PC (hardware requirements) would be good to run versions of Windows Server. The PC would not be used for business purposes, purely for learning. All I need is for the PC to run Windows Server and run it without being too slow ie, I want an old PC to run Windows Server not a new one but I dont know what would be sufficient.

So if anyone can provide some suggestions, such as a PIII 700mhz, 256MB RAM etc it would be great.

Thank you.

Answer:windows 2000 server

Have you set the GPO to an OU? The reason why I ask is because the GPO is totally useless until you set it on an OU.

You could also try opening a command prompt and typing gpupdate

That will sometimes fix problems like the one you are having.

I have recently aquired a server (dual athlon 2000xp+ on msi mobo with adaptec scsi card and seagate cheetah 18gb HD, radeon 7000 agp vid, onboard NIC) that had been in use at a family member's office. The machine is running Windows 2000 server sp4.

I have a DLink DI-524 wireless router right now for my home network (6 computers) but want more control, specifically over bandwidth usage/priority (QoS?) and even more specifically I want to still be able to play fps games and surf the net when my roommates are downloading porn/music. Rather than get a new router I would like to set this machine up to act as a firewall/web router.

Is this a practical solution? I'm wondering first of all if I can even do this under win2k server, and secondly if it is as fast or reliable as a hardware solution (This is what I have been looking at, although I don't really need the gigabit speeds, and it is a little pricey.)
 

Answer:Windows 2000 Server ?

You could use a Linux firewall distro. A couple of them support QoS. If you want to stay in a Windows world, you could use Windows 2003 and ISA 2004. But, that won't be cheap for a home. IPCop has some throttling features, but it's not full blown QoS. I think m0n0wall will do QoS, but I can't remember off the top of my head.

We have a windows 2000 server DC. Everything was working fine. It was acting as a DHCP server. We got new internet service and the new router was configured as a dhcp server, which i didn't know this. So it started shooting out wierd IP's, to the client pc's. Now i turned off dhcp on the server. There are about 15 computers getting IP's from the router. Everyone is having problems now connecting at different times. They are all getting IP's 10.168.1.xxx. Some people will be connected to the internet, others will not be able to connect, then all of a sudden they will be able to connect, but not print to the network printer, then the internet will freeze up, then they will be fine for a while. The error log on the 2000 server is saying. The DHCP service in not servicing any Clients because none of the active netwrok interfaces have statically configured IP addresses, or there are no active interfaces.
DHCP is not active on the server. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Windows 2000 Server

Using Backup Wizard from Start/Accessories you should select all files folder that you require to backup to your media. Make sure you back up the System State.When restoring the media to your SBS, select 'A new Location' when prompted to Restore, and not 'Original Location'All this is assuming that you can restore your data to a SBS?Maybe mgmcc will be around later to help you further?

I'm not sure if this should go in the software forum or here... but I think NetShield is included with Windows 2000 Server so I'll post it here.

About 3 weeks ago netshield stopped working on my server. The icon just sits in the system tray with a red circle w/ a line going through it. When I load a TS connection I am prompted with the following when the desktop loads:

"The NetShield Task Manager or On-Access Scanning service is not running on the local server. Would you like to start services now?"

I click "Yes" the red circle/line goes away for about 3 seconds and then returns.

If I right click on the icon and choose "Enable" I get the following prompt:

"The NetShield Task Manager or On-Access Scanning service is not running on the server 'MYSERVERNAME'. Would you like to start services now?"

Of course I would! So I click "Yes" and nothing happens.

If I view the services there are 3 services for this application. All of them are set to "Auto" but only two of them are running. The service not running is "Network Associates McShield." If I try to start the service I get an error stating:

"Could not start the Network Associate McShield service on local Computer.

Running a Compaq Proliant 800
dual p3 600
512 MB RAM

Attempting a Clean install of Server 2000
After 2000 Setup Process completes and I finally get to the "Push Ctl, Alt, Delete to login" screen. THe Keyboard and Mouse both drop their connectivity. Both Keyboard and Mouse are PS2, not trying to confuse the server by throwing it a USB Curveball here.

If anyone can helpo me with this it would be great, and since this problem may be Hardware related, I am going to post this in that forum as well. I just don't think that it is hardware related, because of the fact it will recognize the Kb/mouse throughout the entire setup process.

Thanks

Answer:Windows Server 2000

If you have any com ports and parallel ports not being used, you could try disable via the bios, in the event there is a conflict. If that doesn't work, then see if there are any settings in the bios to reset plug-n-pray settings. You could try toggle off then on PnP OS, if available via bios.
Another alternative, if you installed terminal services on setup, then you could access the server via term services. At least then you could get in and see what's up.
Also, what happens if you boot into safe mode? Or if you only boot up with just the keyboard (no mouse).
Some how, you need to check those event logs. You could check them by using the "Computer Management" MMC console from another Win2k or XP machine.

A DOS prompt keeps popping up on my 2000 Server showing Tracing activities. [RASADHLP (Tracing Active)] The only tracing that was done on this computer was Network Monitor. We uninstalled all network monitor tools and can not find where this is running from to stop it. We have also deleted any registry keys pertaining to the HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Traci. Could you help us figure out what is running so we may stop it?

Thanks

I'd run a trojan/antivirus scan. I know that the SubSeven uses that dll as well as a few others.

Hackfix has a nice site that'll help you find out if you've been infected with sub7 or not. Even if not, I'd still run a full scan.

Hi people,

yesterday i wiped my NT4 server and replaced with win2k server. Everything was great until we noticed that the three XP pro workstations we have in the office disconnect from the server...the win98 and win2k workstations are fine during this time, its just the XP pro machines that seem to experience these technicalities.
to get them back i have to disconnect them from the domain back to a workgroup, reeboot, then reconnect to the domain, where they will work fine for a few hours...then just 'drop' off again!!!

can someone help?

thanks in advance

Answer:Windows 2000 Server

Futher findings show that giving the three win XP machines static IP's result in no problems connecting to the domain server. I have used the 2000 server as the DHCP but i still get the same problem using that too.

I need to back up a lot of files on my Mac system to a server running windows server 2000. I can't connect to the windows server from the mac, but I can connect to the Mac from the windows server and I can connect to other windows machines (running just 2000 pro). I am not sure of all the info one would need to help me out, but any help would be great. Thanks.

I am running a server on Windows 2000 Server and recently set it up to receive faxes. It received one and saved it successfully, subsequent faxes result in an error in the event viewer. (EventI 8218, category inbound)In addition, when receiving faxes, Windows 2000 suspends the network connections so workstations that are using it for file sharing lose their connection.

Hello, this is my first post in this forum, so hello!

I was wondering if anybody knew some good reference books for Windows 2000 Server. I'm currently an intern in a IT department in a accounting firm, and I really want to get to know Windows 2000 Server better. I did have a Windows 2000 Server book back when I was in school, but sold it after the semester was over.

Anyways, I appreciate your help and thanks!

Answer:Windows 2000 Server

Welcome to TF!!

There are plenty of books out there to choose from, I find that the books printed by New Riders Publishing titled: MCSE Windows 2000 Server (Microsoft Dertified Professional Approved) is very helpfel because it does not entirely focus on "theoretical" situations.



It has step by step instructions on performing specific tasks along with tips and stuff. ( www.newriders.com )

Answer:Windows Server 2000

Welcome to TSG....

When a Dell can not display a hard drive in BIOS then there is a chance that the hard drive might have taken a good dump and not be working especially when trying to do an install procedure. I would make sure that BIOS has the CD-ROM drive as the first drive set so the cd boots. Did this OS come on this computer?

I am handling a few servers and workstation all interconnected together through routers. All the workstations and servers can map a drive to one another. Recently I have noticed that one such server of mine running windows server 2000 with Service pack 4 has encounter a major problem. The problem is that from this particular server I cant map a drive to another server or workstation at all. Worse is that other servers and workstation also cannot map a drive to that particular problem server.

As i constantly require my workstations to refer to the problem server for files, this has cause problems for work. I went to check the event viewer of that server and noticed that there is this error noted.



I called up Microsoft Support to ask them about this LsaSrv, Event 5000 problem. They provided me with this hot fix KB 829755 but it doesnt fix anything. The operator told me that this is post service pack 4 bug and hot fix should fix it. But it didnt fix anything.

I checked out some forums and some people are having the same problem and their questions are never answered too. If I contact Microsoft about this problem again I am going to be charged for a Higher level support.

I hope the gurus here will be able to help solve this network problem of mine. So far it has spread to another 2 more servers. I scan for virus and it turned up Negative. Thanks for listening...

It depends...
How large are the drives?
How many drives are assigned to parity?

The second question sounds like a familiar policy...dont know off hand though.

Ok here is my situation.

I work for the Canadian Government, I am trying to set up a basic web server so that people from across the country can log onto a message board (probably something simple like phpBB)

I have a dedicated machine here running windows 2000 Advanced Server. Here is my problem, I know 2000 Server, but I have never had to set one up before so this is going to be a bit of a challenge.

I have 3 options on how to go about this:

1) Break open some texts and see if I can dig up some info and get it done

2) Wing it and hope for the best, this worries me since I am at Department of National Defence, security issues might come up, and it might take forever with trial and error, (which I have been trying so far)

3) Find an online tutorial I can wing through that shows step by step on how to go about this, and different options, but so far I havent seen something of that nature out there just yet.

Am I better off scrapping the Server 2000 idea all together and just going to something like Apache? Would that be a better option for me?

My background is more consulting and programming then it is networking, so I am sort of drifting into uncharted waters, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 2000 as a Web server.
