Cannot connect to Windows 2003 Server after updating the Windows 8.1pro client

Question: Cannot connect to Windows 2003 Server after updating the Windows 8.1pro client

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

Preferred Solution: Cannot connect to Windows 2003 Server after updating the Windows 8.1pro client

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.)

Has anyone tried using Windows 2003 Server (or x64 edition) as there Desktop OS?

I'm wondering if it would be any better then XP (or x64 edition)
 

Answer:Windows 2003 Server as Client OS

Depends on what you are going to be doing with it. Server OS's have a bit more ovverhead...some programs don't like installing on a "server" OS. that being said, you can tweak it a bit and it runs quite well, even for gaming. But unless the user knows what is going on and how to work around the OS, forget it....

Hello,
I am having problems remotley administering my domain. I am using a vista computer to administer my domain remotely. When I try to open the domain users and computers appalet I get the message that says " naming information can not be located ...". I know that DNS is running (maybe not correctly) and that my computer logged on to the domain. DNS is the only thing that I can think as the problem. I can log onto OWA by typing in the ip address but I can not use the admin tools. Please help

Thank You
 

Answer:Can not connect to the server 2003 domain from the vista client

Well, how about fixing the DNS? Without working DNS, you can pretty much forget about doing anything with AD.

Okay let me give you all the facts up until about 6 months we ran hardcoded PC's across the board. We then got more and more laptops and are finding it easier to now run DHCP. One issue I have is we are running DHCP off a Cicso router and not off the Windows 2003 server. Also remember we have a bunch of subnets as each location is on its own vlan (while this does not matter the same problem is happening with the local LAN with the hosting servers).

I just now went into DNS and noticed that our records are not being updated within DNS. We had some records that are in our forward lookup zones that were 3 months old + that have no computername any longer even on the network. In the reverse lookup zones there is more of the same where we have multiple records with the same IP.

This is happening in both forward and reverse lookup zones and is on 2 different DNS servers. Now scavenging was set for the forward lokup zones for 7 days abut the reverse lookup zone was NOT enabled. We went ahead and enabled it and then I did a forced Scavenge Stale resource records on both servers at the same time.

This did part of what I wanted but did not fix the entire problem. In the forward lookup zones the A records that were stale are now gone (at least the main ones that caused me to notice the problem to begin with). In the reverse lookup zones there are still a TON of duplicates - PTR records for 2 different PC's on the same IP and PTR records for 1 PC on 2 different IP's

Answer:Windows 2003 DNS Server - Client Records not being deleted.

Hello Stumped!

I am having the same problem in my environment with my reverse lookup zones. I have duplicate PTR records and scavenging does not seem to be working for the reverse lookup zones. I am at the point now where I am considering deleting my reverse lookup zone and recreating. I just have to answer a few questions about how I am going to recreate the reverse lookup entries that were created from manual forward entries. I would hate to have to do that part manually.

At any rate, I believe I can at least speak to your question regarding a Cisco device being used for dynamic DNS.

You're Windows 2000/XP clients should register their forward lookup name themselves. The DHCP server registers the PTR records on the client’s behalf. The client has the option of requesting to update both records; however, it is only responsible for actually updating the forward lookup zone. The reverse lookup zone in a Microsoft scenario is always updated by the DHCP server.

I have not been able to determine that Cisco routers actually support dynamic DNS. I have seen some documentation for security appliances that make it possible (but I don't think they work with MS DNS)

As far as what I've found from Cisco, they sell a DNS/DHCP solution called Cisco Network Registrar which supports dynamic DNS. My suggestion would be to pick one solution or the other. (I have no experience with CNR and I have no idea what it costs)

Hi,

We have bound several Macs to the Microsoft AD domain. One of the reasons for doing this was to achieve a single sign-on environment. ie no need to reautenticate when connecting to one of the file servers etc.
The problem we have is that when we attempt to connect to the Win2003 fileserver using AFP we are still being prompted to reauthenticate wheras if we use SMB instead it connects staright away. We have noticed that the SMB connection works straight off as the Kerberos Domain Controller (KDC) issues the OSX user with a kerberos ticket which is viewable in the Kerberos.app on the Mac.
Does anybody have any ideas that may help with this ?
Thanks in advance

Hi Guys, I have read a number of posts here about networking issues but none seemed specific to my issue... I had a Windows 7 environment and just recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop.. .well win 8.1 Pro to be exact. On all of my windows 7 machines I can ping 192.168.1.199 and get solid response and go to that address in the browser and no issue. On the new Window 8.1 laptop I ping that address and sometimes get 1 timeout with 3 responses... other times it just times out and sometimes I get all 4 replies... The print server has a web interface but I am unable to connect to it at all - is there something I need to set in Win 8?

I am running a Windows 2003 server with 2 NICS in my office. The internal LAN in the office is on 192.168.1.xxx, subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

The Second NIC installed for VPN has IP address: 192.168.1.95. I have configure RAS to work on the Second NIC. It uses DHCP to give out IP addresses to VPN clients in the 192.168.0.xxx range.

My home network and Vista client machine are on 192.168.15.xxx.

I can connect and register my Vista client machine on the network, but I cannot ping any of the computers, including the server, in the office network. I believe I have to set up some sort of a static route or a classless route, or something like that, so that the VPN client machine (192.168.0.xxx) can hop over to the office network (192.168.1.xxx).

Can anyone help?

By the way, I know that the router is passing the traffic correctly because if I set up RAS to distribute an address to the VPN client in the 192.168.1.xxx range using the existing NIC (not the second NIC in the server), everything works fine.

I have an office of three computers and new file server running Windows Home Server 2011.
Two of the three computers are running windows 7 64bit Home Premium, and connected to the server dashboard hassle-free.
However, the last computer, running Windows 7 64bit Professional, displays an error message after I enter the server password.
"cannot connect this computer to the network"

I can clearly see the server on the network map, and I can successfully ping it.
I cannot however access its website at http://servername/connect

I have tried all of the troubleshooting steps listed here
http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/windowshomeserver2011/computer-connection-support-2.aspx

I have also disable the antivirus, and opened ports 55000, 56000, 1138 and 8192 for inbound and outbound traffic.

Whatever it is, its definitely isolated to the client, because I have two other machines running windows 7, on the same network, that have connected fine.
All clients and server are also a part of a home-group, in which i can clearly see other computers and server folders from the troublesome client.

Answer:Non Admin not able to connect OPC server in Windows Server 2003

From what I've read on this thread, you'll need to set computer-wide DCOM security permissions. You'll want to peruse that thread.

On another note, this isn't really the best spot for this question. An error message isn't a crash, hang or bsod, and the situation is more relevant to specifically the Windows Server section (even though OPC servers can and often do exist in many client versions of Windows). You'll be able to receive more help there, as it's pertinent to your needs.

Hi,

I have never used Novel before but I need to figure this problem out.

I need figure out how to connect Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 to Novell Netware 6.5. The shares will come from Windows but how do I manage the security and login scripts for this from Novell Directory Services? I was thinking DIR XML possibly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
 

Answer:how to connect Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 to Novell Netware 6.5

The question is pretty lite on details and I have never tried to integrate a windows server into a Novell envrionment, but I'll reply anyway.

The two things that come to mind I would look at would be installing eDirectory on the Windows box or using DirXML to sync accounts between NDS and AD. Of course I'm making all sorts of assumptions, but my thinking is that the first option may allow the management of the servers resources directly through eDir (I've never installed eDir on Windows, so I really dont know how it behaves). The DirXML idea would let you sync accounts and then manage the windows shares as you normally would.

Are you trying to get interoperability between two existing systems or is this windows box a new addition to an existing Novell environment?

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.

I'm quite bamboozled and not sure how to ask this question.
I've been placed in control of a windows server 2003 network running approx 60 machines.
I realised today that windows atomatic updates had been turned off on the server, and that it probably hadn't run on the desktop machines for sometime. (months/years)
I'm quite happy to run update on the server.
However that won't update the workstations.
Is there a way to do this that involves an explanation thats relatively simple to follow?
 

Answer:Solved: Updating winxp client from winsever 2003

If the workstations are at Service Pack 1, I would recommend updating to service pack 2 first. The fastest way would be to have that ready on either the file server or CD. Downloading for each computer would take way too long.

After that, you can manually start the rest of the updates for each computer at the user's and your convenience.

The configure the workstations to get the updates automatically after that. Since you know how to update the server, the workstations aren't that much different except for the service pack.

Hi,

I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

Hi,

I have a set of 5 machines - 2 desktops (one being a thin client and the other to function as a 'server' ) and 3 notebooks. I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

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

Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has the following restrictions:
- Only one computer in a domain can be running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active Directory® forest.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
- A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
- Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.
The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites. The standard edition is ideal for customers who do not require the higher-level functionality included in the premium edition

The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPage® 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.

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. 




Both Jobs are using the same criteria, but a... Read more

Okay what are the steps needed to make the new Windows 2003 server take over all roles that the old 2003 server had? Here is the scenario. I have 1 2003 server this was really only a glorified desktop but it served its purpose. It was the only Server on the domain in a single domain/single site scenario. I now have had a second 2003 server built And I have it added into the domain. I setup all the same functions DNS Server, Domain Controller - Active Directory, File server and print server.

With Server 1 turned off and Server 2's IP changed to the IP of Server 1 the clients are pulling DNS from the PC's in the domain do work fine I.E. log in fine authenticate have full control over the shares they should, have internet browing.

The problem is that Server 2 (only when Server 1 is turned off) is not able to populate all the active directory objects (I mean it shows the item but it is greyed out and gives some errors about a Global Catalog Server not being available). Why am I geting this if both PC's are setup as Active Directory domain controllers?

Please explain this and let me know what else I have to ensure to do before pulling off this original Windows 2003 server so far I have the following done -

Shares from Server 1 recreated on Server 2 - Check
Server 2 is now configured as the DNS Server and functioning just fine - Check

Answer:Added ones Windows 2003 Server want to remove old 2003 server.

This sounds tricky alright. I did the MCSE exams on AD and Windows 2000 server etc, from what I can remember there is only one Global Catalog server in the network. So I assume that when you set up the first server it assumed this role for the network. BUT when you add the second server this finds that there is already a Global Catalog server and does not assume this role itself.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...03/all/techref/en-us/W2K3TR_Ad_dctrl_over.asp
"The first domain controller in a forest is automatically created as a global catalog server. Thereafter, you can designate other domain controllers to be global catalog servers if they are needed."

I would try to promote your 2nd server to a Global Catlog server and see if this resolves the issues.

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:

The server was not found or was not accessible.

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).

Hello everyone, I've looked around at other threads related to my issue, and I can't seem to find a correct answer.
I have a computer lab that I've recently installed a Windows 7 Enterprise image onto 35 Dell Optiplex computers (most are 380's, a few older 360's).
I created the image using MDT2010 and used one of the 380's as a reference.
All has been well for about a month or two but recently 6 computers are giving me Windows Update errors with the error code of 80080005.
I have a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server running, and all of my other computers seem to be getting their updates just fine.  WSUS has the problematic computers in it's database, but it shows that they haven't checked in for "x" days.

I currently have a Win Server 2003 of which I was running XP's on for 5 years with no latency issues while logging in. I just upgraded the CLIENT PC's to Windows 7. I MAPPED the drives to each CLIENT but after the login name and password are entered the time it takes to MAP the drives is at a minimum of 1 minute. Before they mapped in seconds and these CLIENT computers are much faster then what I had in the XP's. Any suggestions? I have already tried to "relax" the security settings on the CLIENT computer but to no avail. Should I try SHARED FOLDERS instead, but if that's the case I have a NETWORK software that all the CLIENTS use off the server. Plus we save ALL work to the server which gets backed up nightly, so all the EXCEL 2013 files need to be accessed from each CLIENT to the SERVER. Again, my problem is lying with the LATENCY on logon....after I open the programs and the drives are mapped the computers run very fast. Ideas?

Hi all,

I am the 'administrator' of a small Windows Small Business Server 2003 network which comprises 1 Server (1 NIC) and 8 Clients. One of the client computers failed and I had to run a diagnostic on the components which meant testing each i.e. M/b, Video, CPU Hd etc. It transpired that on this Client the PSU was the problem so I installed a new PSU, rebuilt the Client and connected it to the network and restarted it.

Everything started OK except I could not connect to the network. I tried to 'Join a domain' via My Computer, Properties, Computer Name and Change and putting in the Domain name of the server.

I receiver the 'Error' message:-

An error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain ABCD.CO.UK.

The error was: "The requested address is not valid in its context." (error code 0x00002741 WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL)

The query was for the SRV record for_ldap_tcp.dc_msdcs.ABCD.CO.UK

So there you are, the full 'Error' message. I have so far been unable to get the Client computer to connect to the Win SBS 2003 Server but there is one thing that may be relevant, I did attach the HD to another Client pc to confirm it was OK so could this have reset something on the HD which has stopped it connecting to the Server?

Any help on this would be gratefully accepted?

Hi All,
We have a 2003 exchange server on the network and PC running XP Pro with 2003 Office Professional installed. There are about 50 PC's on the network.

The exchange server can be pinged from the PC

One PC/username in particular is not connecting to the exchange server. When I arrived at the PC Outlook was showing Offline and when I went to put it online it asked for a username and password to connect to the exchange server. Even after entering this info it wasn't connecting.

I checked on the PC to see if I could connect to the server and view the mailbox via Oulook Web Access using his username and password. This worked OK.

I deleted the outlook account and tried to create a new one for the same user. After I type in the server name and username and click on "check Name" I get the following pop-up: "The name could not be resolved. The operation failed".

Then I logged onto the same PC with my username and password and created an outlook account for my email ID. This worked no problem and I was able to connect to the server and download the emails into Outlook.

Thinking that the PC and Outlook are OK and there is an issue with this particular persons profile I went to a different PC on the network and using this persons username logged into a PC. I was able to create an Outlook profile for them on a different PC and it worked without an issue.

So I am a bit confused......

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.

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

Hi,
My friend and i at Univsersity have to create a Windows 2000 server and then make a computer using Windows 98 able to connect to it and access files in shared folders.
This is all done using software called VMWare, this prevents us using real computers do to the work, in the probably event we would break them.

The problem is we get stuck near the end of the documentation we are given.
When the user on the 98 machine tries to log in it just says invalid or unknown domain or it might even be password, im not sure at the minute, more likely to be domain as we set up the user accounts ourselfs.

The teacher asked us to try the ping command, to try to connect to each other.
My friend on the 98 machine could ping himself and my machine,
i could pinghost (my machine) but when i tried to ping the 98 machine it said request timed out.
This seemed odd as he could ping my machine but i could not ping his, the only thing i can think of about that is outbound connections have been blocked, but we have been told security is disabled as default on Win2000 servers.

Here's the situation...Every week I ghost copies of our servers. Two Windows 2000 servers and two Windows 2003 servers. Each server has one Western Digital 80GB ide hard drive in a hard drive rack and there is one open rack for inserting the backup hard drives.

I use ghost 2003 on floppies, each is configured to run the ghost backup automatically. When I am ready to ghost, I insert the backup drive, insert the floppy disk and start the server. Ghost loads, backups the drive, and says ghosting is complete. I take the main drive out and replace it with the ghosted copy. The ghost copies for 2000 and 2003 boot up fine, no problems.

(FINALLY TO THE PROBLEM)

When I remove the Ghost copies and reinsert the main drives, the 2003 servers will not boot, but the 2000 servers do. This doesn't happen every week, and sometimes one 2003 server will work and the other won't. When they don't work, the servers post but for some reason don't see the hard drive (this is not the ghost copy). On one of the 2003 servers, I have figured out the problem.

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

I set up the vista vpn client using this guide: http://www.aeonity.com/frost/howto-windows-xp-vpn-into-remote-location
*(Note: I haven't done step 2 of this guide 'Automating the connection' as I have yet to get it to connect)

There is a least one thing I have discovered that may be messing things up, I also may not have set up the routers and modems properly.

The first problem I see is that when I set up the user account on the xp vpn server machine is that in Network Connections>Incoming Connections>Properties>Users>UserName>Properties - It shows a 14 digit password. This doesn't match as I entered an 8 digit password. I then deleted the account, set up a new account with no password and lo and behold, when you go back into Network Connections>Incoming Connections>Properties>Users>User... Read more

Well since this is a web/email server I put it here if you think it should go elsewhere let it be moved.

Last night our server IIS service started jumping up and down on our server in all of the hubbub that ensued this service shutting down started turning off other Exchange services on the server as well.

We got it all back up and running by making note of all the services (some which would not restart due to a bunch of errors about executible not being linked to a working service), stopping all the exchange and IIS services, backing up the information store, ripping out IIS in the Add/Remove programs windows components, reboot, reinstall IIS ad components, Reinstall Exchange over the top, Reapplying the service pack and lastly resetting the information store. All was good as far as email use ending and recieving internally and externally works like a champ.

The problem is while OWA was working for us before this tragedy It no longer is working at all. I can go to http:/server and get to the default website so I know parts of IIS is working but when I add in the /Exchange I get a unspecified Error in the top right of the page and when I check the log of the C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 I get a 401 error thats not displaying on my broswer. The one big thing I noticed is that there is no Exchange application pool in the Virtual directory under application pool in the properties of the Exchange site.

Emergency Management Services is a new feature in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that supports remote management and system recovery for servers that are not accessible through a conventional connection. By using Emergency Management Services with other software and hardware components, you can remotely perform tasks such as recovering unresponsive servers and powering servers off and on, even when they are not accessible through a standard network connection. Emergency management services also supports headless servers—those without a local keyboard, monitor, or mouse. This document provides an overview of Emergency Management Services and its components. It explains how to choose and configure hardware and software that supports Emergency Management Services. It provides guidance for enabling Emergency Management Services, and information about using this technology to troubleshoot problems with remote servers.

Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003

Only servers running a Windows Server 2003 operating system can be monitored using Emergency Management Services. For additional hardware and software requirements, please consult the chapter.

I want to upgrade a client's peer-to-peer network to an actual 2003 domain. I am comparing Server 2003 Standard Edition with Small Business Server. I thought that Small Business Server was Standard Edition with a few extras like Exchange Server, which I don't need. However, SBS is quite a bit less expensive than Standard, which surprises me. I haven't yet found a side-by-side comparison on Microsoft's website and was hoping some of you could help.

Why is SBS cheaper? What's missing that is included in Standard Edition? Which version should I recommend to my client? It's a small network that's unlikely to ever grow beyond 5 clients, if that's any help.

One important point is that we need full Terminal Services functionality. Are there any limitations on Terminal Services with SBS? I plan to set this client up with some remote access via Terminal Services Advanced Client.

Thank you for your help.

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

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

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

Now I have a second Domain Controller (DC) that I want to add to my current network and the 2003SBE is the only one curently functionig as the DC.

So I went and i made the second server another DC in the existing network, now the 2003 SBE is complaing about licensing violations, and it shuts itself down and on top of all that is wont sync the domain.

So as i see it i need to "upgrade" this SBE server, and i dont see how i can do that with out haveing to re-do the entire domain (20 users/20 computers) and i dont need to go computer computer and transfer setting for 20 user and computers.

so what i want to know is there any way for me to change the SBE server into a STANDERD server?
 

Answer:Windows Server 2003 Small Business Server (DELL) - Changing the licensing to standert

Wait maybe I’m reading things wrong here but did you install the 2nd server with the same disk as the first server? There can only be one server running the sbs version of 2003 on a network everything else must be installed with a regular windows 2003 disk. If you installed the 2nd server with SBS as well then you need to promote the first server back to primary controller and then you will have to bring down that server and reformat with a regular 2003 disk

From
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;842690#XSLTH3135121122120121120120
Windows Small Business Server is a single-domain solution that is not intended to be integrated with other Windows-based domains. You are not permitted to establish explicit trusts to other Microsoft Windows NT-based domains or to Active Directory service domains. Also, Windows Small Business Server does not let you create child domains. The computer that is running Windows Small Business Server must have all operations master roles and must be at the root of the Active Directory forest.



What I think happened is that when you brought up the 2nd server it grabbed the master roles and since they both NEED to be master because they're both sbs editions there's a problem. SBS is a good deal for a small business but you have to be aware of its restrictions.

Anyway before i go any further I’ll wait on more details on how everything is setup maybe I’m looking into stuff that doesn't apply

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Can anybody tell me how I would be able to set this up?
 

Answer:xp to windows server 2003 fax server (network printer setup)

You need to add Fax Services to the server.

start -> control panel -> add/remove programs -> windows components.
Make sure Fax Services is checked. If not, check it and install the service.
Then follow the wizard to share the Fax printer on the network.
Once that is done, on your XP clients, go to \\servername or surf to the server via My Network Places and install the fax printer.

That should be all you need to do.

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.

Microsoft has been no help, I have searched far and wide for a solution, but to no aval....

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

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.

I will connect 2 different domains together.

The both domains should set up under Windows 2003.
Also should set up an Exchange 2003 server (with Outlook web access).

Members from both domains should have complete access to data on the other domain.
The members should login on the other domain with his local account.

Email exchange should be setup under Exchange 2003 sever (at best without POP3/SMTP).

The biggest problem is that I have no idea how to make it!!

Can someone give me some tips or info how to connect that both domains together?!?
