SQL Server Critical Update Wizard for SQL Server 2000: Feb 20

Q: SQL Server Critical Update Wizard for SQL Server 2000: Feb 20


The SQL Server Critical Update Wizard will update editions of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 that are vulnerable to the Slammer worm. All versions of the SQL Server 2000 Evaluation Edition can also be updated with the SQL Critical Update Wizard. However, Evaluation Edition can not be updated using SP3. MSDE 2000 ships with several Microsoft products, including Office XP. For a complete list of products that ship MSDE 2000, view the web page at Microsoft Products that include MSDE 2000.

The SQL Critical Update Wizard was developed specifically for the home and small business user, though enterprise customers may also download and deploy the wizard to their internal customers. The SQL Critical Update Wizard will walk you through the steps of detecting a vulnerability to Slammer and updating the affected files. SQL Critical Update Wizard runs on Windows® 98, Windows ME, Windows NT® 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Please see Knowledge Base Article: 814372 for further information about this wizard. If you want to install SQL Critical Update on a cluster, use the SQL Critical Update tool instead of the wizard. For more information about updating clusters with SQL Critical Update or if you need more flexibility in detecting and removing security vulnerabilities, visit

SQL Server 2000 Security Tools.

System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows XP

• Windows Installer 1.1 is required to run the SQL Critical Update Wizard on Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows NT 4.0. For Windows NT 4.0 see Windows Installer 2.0 Redistributable for Windows NT 4.0 and 2000.
For Windows 98 and ME see Windows Installer 2.0 Redistributable for Windows 9X.

Preferred Solution: SQL Server Critical Update Wizard for SQL Server 2000: Feb 20

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.)


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

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

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

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


Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

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

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

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

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

Is that what you wanted?

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?

This is a spoofing vulnerability that exists in the affected products and that could enable an attacker to spoof trusted Internet content. Users could believe they are accessing trusted Internet content when in reality they are accessing malicious Internet content, for example a malicious Web site. However, an attacker would first have to persuade a user to visit the attacker’s site to attempt to exploit this vulnerability.
Affected Software:

• Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0 Service Pack 1
• Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 1 and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 2

Note The following software programs include Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 (ISA Server 2000). Customers using these software programs should install the provided ISA Server 2000 security update.

• Microsoft Small Business Server 2000

I have a client who has an existing Server 2000 domain. He is running two Windows 2000 servers in his domain. What he's looking to do is to replace the master domain controller,(the server which was first brought up and hence contains the master copy of the domain database).

I believe that since this is going to be a completely new server and running Server 2003 standard edtiion I believe, that I'll need to first take everyone out of the domain, demote the second domain controller to a stand-alone and then demote the master domain controller which effectively dissolves the domain. Then after bringing the brand new server up, recreate the domain and then the secondary domain controller and join everyone back into domain (new SID but same domain name).

Does this sound correct-could anyone confirm whether this is correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Sticking this one in here, for a week

This is two fold:

A vulnerability exists in ISA Server 2000 because of the way that it handles malformed HTTP requests. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious HTTP request that could potentially allow an attacker to poison the cache of the affected ISA server. As a result, the attacker could either bypass content restrictions and access content that they would normally not have access to or they could cause users to be directed to unexpected content. Additionally, an attacker could use this in combination with a separate Cross Site Scripting vulnerability to obtain sensitive information such as logon credentials.

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in ISA Server 2000 that could allow an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability to create a NetBIOS connection with an ISA Server by utilizing the NetBIOS (all) predefined packet filter. The attacker would be limited to services that use the NetBIOS protocol running on the affected ISA Server.

Affected Software:

• Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000 Service Pack 2
Note The following software programs include ISA Server 2000. Customers who use these software programs should install the provided ISA Server 2000 security update.
• Microsoft Small Business Server 2000

I was running FTP Serv-U on Windows 2000 without a problem. I upgraded to advanced server and now have issues. I am not familiar with all the options on 2000 b/c I'm still learning.
The problem I'm having is that the server is running but its not allowing any access. When using ftp to the shared folder, I'm just getting a blank white screen, havent even been prompted to login. When I start ftp serv-u, I originally get an error unable to connect to server port 10666. Then I get another critical error sound and server starts running. I am behind a router which has a built in firewall but that has been configured to allow connections through on port 21. My server configurations are the exact same as I had before on 2000, the only change was the operating system.

2 Questions

1. Is there a ftp server option installed with windows that I can use so I dont have to use ftp serv-u? I'd much rather just run a server that is pre-installed with the OS

2. If no pre-installed ftp server is available, is there something extra that needs to be configured in the windows settings(something that may need to be turned on or off to get server working)?

At home a friend has a server w/Server 2000 and an xp pro sp2 computer that work fine together. She has a laptop w/XP Home sp2 that wont connect.

Is it a limitation of XP Home to not work with Microsoft Server 2000 ?

What effect and/or use is VNC Server software. Its on the server, does the laptop need THAT to get connected to the server? (If thats the case, could anyone point me to a crash course web site on it ?..)

Thank you all very much in advance...


A:VNC Server ? // XP Home w/Server 2000 ?

Yep, XP-Home will not connect to a domain server. You can connect directly to shared folders/drives in that server, you just can't do a domain login.

VNC is a remote control package, it has nothing to do with standard Microsoft networking.

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

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

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

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

thanks in advance.

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:


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

Hi there. My first post.

I installed MySQL 5 on Vista 32-bit just now - it installed fine. The problem is that when I go to open the Server Instance Config Wizard the box is tiny and shows nothing that I can use to discern what is inside.

I tried positioning the cursor onto the side in a vain attempt to resize it - no success. Is there a way I can modify the settings so that I can actually see it?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I'm not sure if I posted in the wrong forum.

A:MySQL 5.0 Server Instance Config Wizard - cannot see anything

Hey there, welcome to TSG

I don't know if this is exactly the right forum or not; we don't get a slew of MySQL questions in Business Apps. If you feel like it isn't getting the attention it deserves, you can click on the yield icon in the first post's title bar and request it be moved somewhere more appropriate. The mods don't like it so much when we double-post, so they'll be happy to move it for you (and even pick the best forum).

Anyway. This seems similar to another MySQL/Vista thread I saw within the last month. Or maybe it only seems similar because there was another MySQL/Vista thread within the last month.

How have you verified the installation was successful? Can you get a version through command line? Can you start and stop the service? I don't know if Vista supports the same windowing hotkeys as XP, but have you tried typing Alt + Space to bring up the window's system menu in case it can be maximized, or typing F11 to enter Full Screen mode (not sure if that even exists on Vista)?

I know these are lame answers. I can't offer much help because I almost always configure MySQL through the command line.

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

It is currently sat with 10000 queues, they are now on pretty much every blacklist and we cannot get them removed until we fix this spam issue. The company only trades via email so it is very important I get this fixed ASAP but I'm at the end of my tether and need some assistance. Here's what I have done so far.
Scanned all client machines and shut them off to elimate any of them having the bot. Results were clear and the queue continues to grow while there are no machies turned on
Ran a scan using their antivirus (Vipre business) updated to latest version - no results found
Installed and scanned RUBotted - no results found
Installed and scanned using Spybot S&D - no results found
Installed and scanned using Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool - no results found
Installed and scanned using Malware Bytes - no results found
Ran DDS - Incompatible with Server 2003

A:Urgent & Business Critical - Server 2003 infected with undetectable botnet

Nevermind folks - it turned out to be from something spoofing a company address. Thousands of spam emails were sent out from a spoof address and they all bounced back to an address that didn't exist on our servers, our Exchange server then sent an NDR out again to those addresses and we were stuck in a loop. All sorted now though.

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00






<-------End of REG file------->
After applying these changes, I ran the following 'w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags: NO 

I get a message that the command is successful.

These changes are based on the following post:

Does anyone out there have experience on ACT? I'm the new tech guy for this little mortgage company, and everyone seems shocked that I don't know this software backwards abd forwards.

Anyway, what they want to do is set up ACT on the server. The goal is to be able to open in up in any workstation and see the same data. I know this can be done because the manual mentions it as a configuration option. I just need particulars...
Does the ACT program have to be installed on the server itself, or does the server simply contain the database file(s)?

Does everyone have to be running the same version of ACT?

How does ACT handle simultaneous data requests (having the database file open on two systems at once)?

Any input on this would be great....

A:using ACT 2000 on a server

ACT itself does not need to be installed on the server. Put the database file on a shared directory on the server and point the application installed on the workstations to that database. If you look in the program options there is a setting for where the database is located. It is a .dbf file if I am not mistaken. You will also need to set up accounts for users so some lame brain doesn't steal the client list or inadvertently delete everything.

Everyone should be using the same version of ACT otherwise custom forms and reports might not work properly.

The database itself has no problem with multiple users although there might be problems with multiple users accessing the same record at once. I think it has a waring to tell users another user is editing a record.

Ask those people if they are familiar with the application and act surprised when they don't have a clue as to what they are doing.

Hi Folks

I'm looking for an Anti virus for W2K Server.

It's for a charity so nothing expensive!

Anything I've tried outside of Norton /trend is either not server compliant or way expensive...

We qualify for free support, but none of the free stuff works with server it seems!!!
