Question: Win Server 2008 R2 BSOD's -- bad hardware?

Preferred Solution: Win Server 2008 R2 BSOD's -- bad hardware?

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'm looking for any hardware recommendation for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. Can be pre-build (Dell/HP) or something DYI. It will be development system with three databases (1st - 20 tables and 2nd - 50 tables and 3rd - 2 tables) and around 3000 new records each day overall.

Thanks for any suggestion.
 

Answer:Hardware recommendation for MS SQL Server 2008 R2

First of all, I would not go with a custom-built machine. If you're doing any production work, having a top-tier vendor with an on-site SLA and direct access to the exact identical parts throughout the warranty period is very important.

Few thoughts come to mind:
1. Will users be remoting into machine to use it, or interfacing with the data through a web/client application?
2. Is the database part of a vendor product? If so, what product? If this is part of a custom/homemade solution, what can you tell us about it?
3. What kinds of data will this be returning? Any embedded types, such as blobs? Any idea on column and row counts, both for the pool of data and some potential resultsets?
4. What is the network and infrastructure like going from user to database and back again?

Edit:
5. What is your budget? Do you have any existing business discounts with top-tier vendors?
6. What is your uptime and availability requirement?
7. Anyone familiar at your site with backup/rollback procedures of databases and transactions in SQL Server? If so, have you decided how to roll this in with existing backup procedures of your other data?

I have a Dell Poweredge 1750 with Intel Xeon 2.4 GHZ CPU's.

Does anyone know if the 2008 x64 OS can be installed on a system with Xeon 2.4 GHZ CPU's?

All the other stuff looks right like RAM, storage ect.

According to the MS web site it seems like it just lumps them all together. I guess the main thing is does the CPU have to be a specific 64 bit CPU or will it install on a 32 bit CPU.

Answer:Windows server 2008 x64 hardware requirements?

A Xeon is not a Itanium based CPU. So it falls under the catagory of the rest. It is above the 1.4GHz required for x64 you should be just fine.

I have random BSOD with SERVER 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition with SP1.
This usually occurs when I try to make network changes or install an application that needs access the TCP stack, or so it appears.
Last time machine crashed when i was installing peer blocker.

This is server is a clean install and it runs HYPER-V.

I ran the utility as per instructions but I cannot see echo.zip file within
C:\Users\username\Documents folder - but I do see Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 folder that contains lots of files within.

I can either zip up the whole Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 folder or mini dump file and upload it, if that is acceptable.

please advise

I had this issue back in April, and I updated my Intel NIC drivers and I haven't had this issue since. Today, it happened again and I updated the drivers again with Windows Updates. When it rebooted to the desktop, it BSOD again a few minutes later. Not sure what is causing this. I looked at the minidump and couldn't find anything.

I have a server that has repeatedly gotten BSOD errors. I don't recall any recent software updates. Can someone please assist by looking at minidumps. I would apprecicate any assistance.

Answer:Repeated BSOD on Windows 2008 Server

They are all involving VMware and networking driver tcpip.sys, and the CA CA iTechnology / iGateway program. I'm not sure what that is exactly other then it involves web service interfaces.

Check with CA to see if they have done any recent updates or need to update.

Hello.
I've encountered a problem with my little home server. Sometimes (Mostly when i'm not even using the server) it just crashes to BSOD.
Some weeks ago i borrowed a server Network Controller. It didn't fit properly in PCI slot. It was longer than the slot. But i was told that it would work just fine.. It did, until this happened. I thought 'Okay - i doesn't work', so i took out the card again, i jumped CMOS, but the problem persisted. I've tried to format, but it didn't make anything different.
It would be awesome if can put the Server Network Controller back into the machine.

I run Windows Server 2008 r2 x64 on this machine.

Here's a .dmb report: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2anelfk3v6l2k5e/bsod1.txt

Hi,

I know it's not quite win7, but I'm hoping someone can help.

The OS is Server 2008 SP 2 running as a Terminal Services server.

About a week ago it started crashing with BSODs. The only recent change was installing a new Xerox workcentre network printer 3 days earlier. It crashed 5 times over a day and a half, and by this time I was trying to work out what was going wrong.

Ran Windows Memory diagnostic after reboot - found no problems.

Chkdsk found no problems with discs either.

Updated the video drivers to current ATI drivers (were previously MS). And uninstalled all the Xerox software and reinstalled printer with driver only.

It then ran fine for nearly a week, but blue screened again last night.

I've posted the analysis of the latest memory dump and attached some older dump files.

Help would be much, much appreciated.

Thanks.

I am having a problem whereby once a day the server freezes and crashes and a force reboot must be performed before the users can continue.

I have one dump file, the crashes normally just freeze with no dump file.
I have done some research and it seems ntoskrnl.exe bsod is the problem.

description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that the system attempted to access invalid memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

Hello and thanks for reading, I was doing some OC on both the motherboard (fsb, cpu and ram) and vga, and about after a week I got a BSOD, it had been a while since the system was running fine, and I had never found this stop code before. For now I've gone back to the normal non-OC configuration of the hardware as a precaution, but I would really appreciate if anyone could clear my doubts.

Facts:
- SO: Windows Server Enterprise 2008 R2 SP1 (x64); Installed about a yer ago
- Hardware has been working for about 4 years (K9N2 SLI Platinum, XFX GeForce 9500GT)
- System has thrown other BSODs in the past, no cause found (althought the oldest ones may have been related to a keyboard driver (that has been ridden of long ago)
- System was in a OC state when BSOD occured (normal and oc state CPU-Z links in the file)
- OC'd state had been thoroughly tested (prime95, memtest, furmkark) and used for about a week without any problems before BSOD occured.
- BSOD's code was 0x00000101

Answer:BSOD on Server 2008, possibly OC related

Three different stop codes all related to hardware. (BCC 101, BCC124, BCC24) Two of three (101, 124) to cpu.

Distinctly possible it is the over clock.

Answer:BSOD Windows 2008 Server - minidumps

The two most important dumps out of the recent 5 you provided are 0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and 0x1: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.

The former is probably the strongest error code that points to corrupted memory and that is exactly what it stated as your system crashes.

The second error cited hardware_RAM as the cause. So between the two you need to test your memory with Memtest 86+. Do you have an IT department that can do this? It's not difficult to use at all if you don't.

Answer:Random BSOD tcpip.sys Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi. . .

tcpip.sys is a Microsoft networking related driver and is not the cause. It is merely listed as a default.

The latest dump in your zip file is February 2016. The cause of the older dumps may have been your wifi &/or Ethernet drivers; not sure.

The next step back then would have been to run Driver Verifier - Driver Verifier - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista (BSOD-related)

Have you had BSODs recently?

Hi guys,

I am having a lot of trouble with constant BSOD's on my hp dv6500 laptop. This started 1 month ago and has been bugging me since then. I thought the BSOD's were because of windows vista (home premium) and then installed windows server 2008 on my laptop. The BSOD's continue.

I am attaching 2 different files which contain minidumps of all the BSOD's on vista SP1 and Server 2008.

One of the reason of switch was that i though HP's drivers for vista were buggy. I am using most drivers on Server 2008 from microsoft apart from the NVIDIA drivers from HP, realtek sound drivers and wifi drivers from HP.

The config of machine is :

Core 2 duo T7300 2 GHZ
2 GB hynix RAM
TOSHIBA MK1637GSX ATA Device 160 GB
NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 128MB
Microsoft USB Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 (IntelliPoint)
Motorola SM56 Data Fax Modem
Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
Realtek High Definition Audio
Symantec Endpoint Protection Antivirus

I am posting in vista section because i think the issue is related to vista since the problem began there. I think problem persists in server 2008 because of common code with vista.

Please let me know if you need any more information

Please help.

Thanks

Ok.

Here is what I am dealing with, going to see if anyone has any thoughts.

Mainboard on the server failed, ( Damn on Board Raid plus there is a leaking cap).

Swapped Mainboard for an exact replacement ( Same Model and Same Rev).

Bench Test outside the case, unit gets the same issue, it comes up and loads the start up recovery console. > Select Keyboard Type> Propt for Local Administrator Password. Doesnt matter what you type it says the user name and password is not correct..

I pulled the mainboard, put in the old board with the failing Raid and a leaking cap. Goes straight to the login screen, and I can login with the admin password.

Any thoughts here? I am about at my wits end!

Hi, I can't attach the DDS file as I'm running server 2008 and it wouldn't install.
 
I am a 2 person business with a dell Poweredge T300 running server 2008. Its really just a file server, I had a friend of my son help change the hard drive as we were running out of space... long story short he installed a partition software he "got on the internet" to help set the drive up, and before he could actually do anything with the new drives, it looks like he installed a virus as we are getting the BSOD and the stop code mentioned above. 
 
Before we re-started the machine and got the BSOD when using the the browser\search, it was sending us to a false web page. I have run and removed files with mailwarebytes and ccleaner but still have the problem. I was digging around as there is a funny Desktop folder in C:\Users\Administrator Local\App Data\Local\Google and another Desktop folder in C:\Program files\google that were both created exactly the same time as the bogus software. I'm sure this has something to do with the issue but it may be too late to fix. However I was reading another post on this forum and Gringo seemed to solve something similar. 
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated as it's been down for a couple of days and its a nightmare!

Hello,
In the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) there is a test for event tracing (#V31026). 
The STIG indicates that if you are running Win 2008 the absence of etwenable = false is not a 'finding' because event tracing is enabled by default (on 2008 servers) and it should be enabled and running.
Is this the same for windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server?
I cannot find the element etwenable in my 2008 R2 Enterprise server test system, it does not exist.
Does that mean the requirement for the STIG is met, and event tracing IS enabled by default on Win 2008 R2 Enterprise Servers?  No further action is required to enable? 

Is there an easy way to verify it actually is enabled?  Check registry value, run script?

Excerpt from the STIG:
Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 STIG
Rule Title:  Event tracing for Windows (ETW) for Common Language Runtime events must be enabled.
STIG ID: APPNET0067  Rule ID: SV-41075r1_rule 
Vuln ID: V-31026
Severity: CAT II Class: Unclass
NOTE:
Beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, ETW Tracing is enabled by default and the "etwEnable" setting is not required in order for Event Tracing to be enabled. 
An etwEnable setting of "true" IS required in earlier versions of Windows as ETW is disabled by default.
Thank you,

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.

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

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

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

Here's my list:

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

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

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

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

So right now I'm running a Windows 2003 server at the house. It was one of my first forays into real server technologies - the AD is a disaster, and my DNS is less than optimal. Additionally, the system needs some new hardware. So, over the summer, I want to upgrade the CPU, and I want to replace my aging RAID5 array of 6x400GB array with a larger and more reliable 3x1TB. (Yes, this is a true hard RAID5 board that runs like a bat out of hell and cost a minor fortune.)

Anyway, I get all sorts of free MS software through school, so I can put pretty much anything I want on here. I want to run my own Exchange server as well. I installed and run SBS2008 at work, and very much like the tight integration and nice management tools. So the question is, do I just run SBS 2008, or do I set up Server 2008 R2, and manually set up Exchange 2007, SQL 2008, etc.? I want the integration of SBS, but I kind of like the idea of using a server OS based on Win7 instead of Vista.
 

Answer:Home: Server 2008 R2 or SBS 2008?

Server 2008 is Vista-based.

Personally, if I had both, I'd just use Server 2008, especially if you're used to 2003.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

Has anyone got any advice?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ok so here's the deal:

2008 domain
GPP extension on all clients

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

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

My questions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Server 2003 to Server 2008 migration DNS trouble

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

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

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

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

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

We had:

We now want to have:

2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

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

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

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

Hey guys,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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).

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

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

Thanks!
 

Answer:Server 2008 -> Windows Home Server

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

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

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

Hey guys,

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

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

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

I'm not sure if I'm doing anything wrong, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I be installing a Windows x32 driver, since that's what will be installed on the clients as well? Or woul... Read more

Answer:Server 2008 x64 - Print Server, Issues

You would install both. You need the x64 driver so the server can access it, and x32 drivers for the client machines.

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

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

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

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

Hello all!

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

The current setup I have is as follows:

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

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

I would like to setup an FTP server on this server so all my family can share all that they want and possibly access all of my media too. What do you guys suggest I do?

I have a Server 2003 server running SQL Server 2008 and need to transfer it to a new server running Server 2008. What is the easiest way to do this? Can you just export the whole database and copy it to the new machine running another instance of SQL Server 2008?
 

Answer:Transfer SQL Server 2008 to new server

Detatch then move. Or use the copy database function if you can to copy it to the new server. But detatch works also

I have got a new tech specs for EMR system upgrade and now I have two options to pick:

option 1: workstations + SQL server + AD server
option 2: workstations + SQL server + AD server + Terminal server

Which option will be more optimal for 20-30 workstations in the network? Now I have a system based on the option 1 (there is no option 2 for current EMR software version). What is an advantage of the terminal server when workstations connect to the SQL server anyway?

on my server 2008 r2 (that is a VM)
it is the DNS server
preferred dns server: itself
alternate dns server: ISP dns server

it is also the DHCP server. so the dhcp server is giving out the same above settings to the workstations.

is this a bad idea ? will it cause problems ?

I'm looking to build/buy a media server by the end of the summer to help centralize a few things. I'm looking for a recommendation of course

My needs are..

A) I want a centralized backup of all home my computers (1-2 desktops, 2 laptops)
B) I want a centralized area where I can share my files on the network.
C) Ability to rip DVDs to a central location where my Popcorn Hour can view them.
D) Ability remote into any computer via this server is a wonder feature as I often have to for business / practical needs.

The ability to auto backup all my computers on a regular basis has a big plus for me in regards to WHS. Does Server 2003 or 2008 have that feature?

Same question for D)
 

Answer:WHS or Server 2003 or Server 2008

I've got a Windows 2008 server in my house. For automated backup I use synctoy scheduled with task scheduler. All free. Backups are run every night @ 12:00. In fact, I can hear my server's HDs crunching now.

It all depends on the cost of the server software. I only use Windows Server 2008 because it was free from my college. The cost of Server 08 might be way too much retail to be practical. Even for my needs, Server 2008 is over kill because I'm only using it for file serving. I'm only using it because it's the only extra free license I have.

And the keys are right there on the page.

It is *only* available in 64-bit flavor.

For the 'server faster than workstation' crowd. I've been messing with it most of the day, it's pretty slick. Still had to add the Aero cursors manually.
 

Answer:You know Server 2008 R2 (aka Windows 7 Server) is available too, right?

I converted Server 2008 into the 'workstation' mode. It matched Vista frame for frame in benchmarks and had a lot of desktop features missing. Forget it.

Hey.

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

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

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

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

Current Disk Queue
Last - 60
Average 10
Max 129

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

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

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

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

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks.
 

Answer:High %Disk Time, Current Disk Queue with SQL Server 2005 + Server 2008

Yeah those numbers are way out of whack. I would make sure you have DMA enabled, maybe try swapping out the drivers for the disk controller, or the chipset. There is definitely something up there...
