I have created some test groups and users. I have made a few file shares and given writes to those files for one user only to test the access.

However I can get into the files that I have set to a different user only.

Preferred Solution: Win Server 2003 (file server) file permission help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have server 2003 running and I want to share some folders. When I try to access the shared folders from another computer I get an Access is denied message. I want it to ask me for a username and password instead of just telling me I do not have permission to use this network resource. Is this something I set up on the server machine or on another machine that is simply trying to access it? Or do I need to be on a domain to do this somehow? I'm hoping its just some checkbox that says "prompt user for password" but thats unlikely.

Anyways, a little more info may or may not be relevant. Server 2003 is acting like a router. have 2 nics, one to cable modem, one to a hub with my other computers on it. Using the internet connection sharing. I have 3 folders, public, private and incoming. I have 2 users, Troy and Users. Troy has read write and full control on all 3 folders. Users has read on public. Has read, write, full control on incoming. And no access to private. If i add 'everyone' to a folder and set permissions to read, i can access the files.

I just installed thismorning and I dont know a whole lot about 2003. I'm trying 2003 so I can allow more than 10 connections.

Thats probably more than you needed, but anyways, any help is appreciated.
 

A:Server 2003 File sharing

On the Windows2003 server, you need to create the same user accounts and passwords that are being used on the Workstations. Then make sure those users have acess to whatever directories are being shared.

As far as the number of concurrent computer connections, that would be determined by the licenses when you first installed it.

Strange problem, involving a DOS (command) prompt: We run a legacy clipper database on our 2003 web server, with no problems. I just added a new user, setting her up as an administor (using the wizard). If I log on as that user and open a command prompt, I can see the directory and file I want on the server... "dir xxx.dbf" shows the correct file. But, I cannot open that file! The clipper database can't open it, and I can't open it using dbase and a "use" command. If I log back on the same computer as another user, it all works just fine.

Any ideas as to why I can see a file, but can't open it??!!

Sounds like the new user doesn't have access rights to the file. Perhaps she only has read access?

I am installing Server 2003 on a freshly formatted partition of my server. At 71% of the "copying files" portion, setup hangs, and eventually says it cannot copy a file called "rsopsnps.chm".

We've found (on some customers) a new wave of attacks over non-protected or up to date Microsoft Server 2003 (even there is no kind of support nowadays for it)
 
We think this attack and encryption has some similar actions as in 2014 appeared to be spreading but ...
 
Ok, the information:
 
Two Servers, both with Microsoft Server 2003 and remote access not secured (weak password)
 
First Server lost all data and after the attack only appears a big file named BACKUP (> 10GB) and the text (russian pirate) asking for 3000€ to recover the data sending an email to a 'mail.ru' address with the IP as reference (curious)
 
Second Server that performs the data backup over a NAS lost all data from it and also the NAS (which was linked to), appearing TWO big files named BACKUP-1 and BACKUP-2 also, theorically, encrypted
 
Seems they made somekind of encrypted wallet (as old time before) and put all the data inside, just moving it (so, no way to look for deleted data)
 
We can not send more info at the moment, we only have the big files and nothing more, a plain text with short instructions to do.
 
Any idea? We think this new wave of attacks respond to an old vulnerability not covered or repaired, so now the dammage is done and we would like to know if there is some kind of hope for these customers or the new ones that soon will appear.
 
Thanks for reading.

Our church has a file server (Dell 2900) running Server 2003 + SP2. It's job is to share files with the staff at the church on approx. 20 PCs & Macs. All was working OK till last week when suddenly no one could get on the shared files. when they tried to check the shares on there MY Computer, they were told that they didn't have permission or that the share did not exist. I could see the shares locally, but could not see or connect over the network.

I ran our symantec 10 and our malware bytes with reports that all was well.

I backed up the data to an ext HDD and reformated the C partiotion of the drive. The data resides on the D partition which I did not touch. It worked for a short while and then had the same failure.

Just some notes: When I turned off the share on the server, it informed that there was one user connected even though I knew no one was connected.

I installed the paid portion of malware bytes and saw several blocked malicious attempts to unknown IP addresses.

I further suspect a hidden spyware program because I looked in the log file of the router and saw connections and attempted connection between the servers IP and some unknown external IP addresses on a port around 24000.

What should I do next ?

I have installed FileZilla server 0.9.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time
of the file uploaded is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hours earlier, and truncates the seconds. This makes version control of files difficult. Is there some configuration

I have just set up a computer with Windows 7, and I'm apparently missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything works great. I then joined the computer to a 2003 Server domain. Everything still appeared to work fine. However, when I log into the domain on the Windows 7 computer, I don't have the correct permissions on the local machine.

I can access the domain. The login works fine. There are no errors. However, when I try and access anything on the local drive, like explorer.exe, it tells me that I don't have the permissions to access it. I can run some programs, in some directories (like Program Files), but if I try and run anything in the Windows directory, I don't have permission. I can access things on the domain, and I can even use Firefox to view the contents of domain machines, mapped network drives, and even the local C drive. I just cannot run anything that's in the local Windows directory.

I can access the local drive using either the domain administrator account, or the local machine administrator account. However, using either of those accounts, I'm not allowed to change permissions on that folder! I can see that the folder is set as read only, but when I attempt to remove the read-only flag (using either account), it tells me that I don't have permission to do that.

I've also tried to give the domain user administrator permission on the local machine, but that has no effect either. That part really con... Read more

Okay I want to go over pros and cons of some of the things that my boss wants done.

First off let me explain what we have. Users are on a domain system. Both laptop and desktop users. No users have admin rights.

Now let me explain what we want to do. We want a backup of their My Documents (and possibly other directories in the future) but we want it to be as invisible to them as possible.

I looked into the Folder redirection GPO and has a good pro - Simple to impelment (I did a test on my own PC did it in about 5 minutes) cons - in order to allow laptops to work they would have to have offline folders enabled and synchrnized and worst of all synchrnization won't accept PST's, MDB's and other key files that we would need synchronized as well gives errors in the synching process.

I then thought about a file sync program letting them seemlessly work on their PCs and just sync the files to the file server - Pros Can install a server side client that just polls for connected PC's and copies the files to the repsective places. Cons costs money, usually does not sync in use files making some of the files be missed.

Lastly I considered a batch file to run at login - Pros easier to setup to copy things out. Cons only runs at login so people could leave their PC up for 15 days and have 15 day old software. As well I do not know how to copy only modified files so some people with large files would copy over a ton of data (unless I can find a solution for this).

A: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.

Regarding your question, we wonder whether you encountered the ?Access Denied? message for every document in your computer or just part of these documents?
Here are some options you can try to solve the problem:

Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.Click the Security tab.Under Group or user names, click your name to see the permissions you have.
Click Edit, then click the check boxes for the permissions that you need. Click
OK.(
You may need to be logged on as an administrator to change file and folder permissions)
If method above failed, Please try following:
Since you have recently rebooted your computer, some of your account information may have changed and you may no longer have ownership of your files or folders. To take ownership of a folder:

Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click
Properties.Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the
Owner tab.Click Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.Click the name of the person you want to give ownership to.If you want that person to be the owner of files and subfolders in this folder, select the

A: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 have a situation where I am constantly having to edit the super.ini file to replace text with some other text.

My problem is that I have servers that this ini.file points to and instead of editing the file every time is there a way I can select which server the ini. file points to by use of a batch file etc. I have 5 servers lit-sup, chi-sup, wor-sup, rus-sup, bog-sup. Basically, I would love a way either to enter the sup via the cmd prompt or a batch file for each sup. So for this example I would like a way to enter "chi-sup" and lit-sup would change to this, keeping in mind I also need to be able to do the same for each server.
Hope this makes sense!
I would be most grateful if someone could advise if I can do this?

The contents of super.ini is pasted below

[DataAccessSQL]
OpenConnectionsOnStartup=Y
KeepConnectionOpen=Y
; Super SQL Database
SuperServer=lit-sup
SuperName=InterimSuper
SuperUser=***********
SuperPwd=***********
;fares SQL Database

I have 5 servers, lit-sup, chi-sup, wor-sup, rus-sup, bog-sup so with my limited knowledge to find and replace the text within the file does not work as the text is always changing to one of the other servers.

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?

A: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

Hello,
I am running a smallish network/domain - with workstations running win 7 pro and Office 2003. The server is running SBS 2011. All PCS have AVG installed.
The problem occurs intermittently (as far as I can tell, but it might be happening more often than I think - but we just aren't doing work that highlights the issue everyday), but if it starts happening one day - it seems to continue that day and is reproducible. And seems to happen on all/most workstations - regardless of whether the workstations are standard users or network administrators on SBS 2011.

Especially word 2003 comes up with the error:
"Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error \\drp001\company\temp\test.doc" (and the document will change its name to a .tmp file - there is no problem saving to the workstation directly).

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.
System Requirements
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.

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've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

Can anyone help me with setting up this network layout with my Pix Firewall.
Network Layout : Pix > DMZ > ISA Server 2004 > Exchange Server 2003 + Users.

Pix outside IP Address : 65.77.78.47 255.255.255.0
Pix inside IP Address : 172.17.0.1 255.255.0.0
DMZ IP Addresss : 172.18.0.3 255.255.0.0
ISA Server outside IP : 172.18.0.2 255.255.0.0
ISA Server inside IP : 172.18.0.1 255.255.0.0

I've identified the interfaces IP Address and named all plus the following config:

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0

nat (dmz) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0

conduit permit icmp any any

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 65.77.78.1 1

I can now access the internet from my ISA Server in the DMZ zone.
I am intending to put the ISA Server out on the DMZ to access the outside world with

static (dmz,outside) 172.18.0.2 65.77.78.47 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

and then open all traffic to ISA with

access-list acl_out permit ip any host 65.77.78.47 255.255.255.255 any
access-group acl_out in interface outside

then I’ll give ISA server access to the inside network with

access-list acl_dmz permit tcp 172.18.0.1 255.255.0.0 172.17.0.2 255.255.0.0 eq 25
access-group acl_dmz in interface dmz

With the above commands, the first access-list acl_out was not accepted by pix plus the second access-list acl_dmz so if you could please share some light upon my configurations.

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?

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

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.

Thanks
