Upgrade Requirement Messages for Windows Small Business Server 2003 Setup

Q: Upgrade Requirement Messages for Windows Small Business Server 2003 Setup

Hiya

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

Preferred Solution: Upgrade Requirement Messages for Windows Small Business Server 2003 Setup

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 recently received a 64bit server preinstalled with Microsoft Small Business Server Standard 2003. I completed the setup, creating a domain and so on, and during the final reboot after setup the power went out. I was able to restart it but it was behaving strangely as I was adding users and computers and finishing the rest of the to-do list and then I went home and returned the next day and researched the Event Viewer and behold, several services were erroring out after that restart when the power failed. IIS and Exchange were the key ones. I re-ran setup from the CDs, reinstalling all server components, and still, I get the error "#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_Config on <server>\sharepoint. Check the Database connection information and make sure that the database server is running." every 5 seconds. I have googled this error and performed the service dependency "fix" referred to in all the posts I found, to no avail. I looked in services and saw that the MSSQL$SHAREPOINT service would not start, it was showing "started" but was in stopped state, and if I started it, it would run for a second and then quit. I thought I would be smart and repair SharePoint Services 2.0, using the CD, which said it completed successfully but did nothing to help this error. Then I tried to run a repair on Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (SHAREPOINT) in Add/Remove Programs, and it gave a fatal error. So I uninstalled it and tried to reinsta... Read more

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.

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.

Hey guys,

I was wondering if any knows of the incompatibilities/issues when trying to connect to a Windows SBS 2003 using SMB. I have a client that is trying to scan a document via a copier to a network folder but even though the machine has the correct domain user name, password, permissions and hostname/folder details, it will give an authentication error. On this particular copier, you have the option to browse to the folder, but this also fails.

I do know that the scan to folder option works, because we have had the copier scanning to individual PCs before. One of my colleagues who is on vacation had something similar happen to him, but obviously I cannot get in contact with him.

Any advice would be great.
 

A:SMB & Windows Small Business Server 2003

It appears to be a common problem; most of the info I found is that the Digitial Signing would need to be turned to disabled in Domain Controller Default Policy. Though this did not help this machine, it looks like what would cause the issue.

Windows Small Business Server 2003 provides a reliable way to perform regular server backups to a tape drive, external hard drive, or network share. The Backup Configuration Wizard allows you to easily configure your backup. After a system failure or other disaster, you can restore your server from your latest successful backup. You can use the Backup Configuration Wizard to configure storage for individual files and e-mail messages, so that they can be restored in the event they are permanently deleted, without restoring the entire server. You can also configure backup of your company Web site, so that you can easily restore files and list items to the site.

I support a small office with a single server that needs replacing.

I am wondering the best method to use to replace a single production server running SBS 2003 Premium with a new single SBS 2003 R2 Std server without losing AD, Exchange and Data directories.

I am looking at replacing the Windows 2003 Small Business Server Premium Edition system with a new server, all new hardware for upgraded power and capacity, and changing the OS from SBS Premium to SBS Standard R2. The Original Premium installation is corrupted and has been "repaired" with a repair install. I only want to make sure that Active Directory and Exchange and the data directories are moved properly to the new server with no data loss and minimal downtime. Exchange and AD have a lot of information in them (thousands of contacts, hundreds of email addresses, etc).

Ultimately I want the new server to look pretty much exactly the same as the old one, just more reliable and powerful. The IP needs to be the same eventually and the server and domain name has to be the same as well.

Is there a guide to doing this or can anyone give me a roadmap? As I understand SBS I would not be able to install this alongside it in the domain and replicate data between Domain Controllers...is that correct? If so what other ways are there to make sure this is successful?

Thanks for any help,

Hi, my existing network has 3 pc runnin win 2000 with dos client; and a server runnin a dos dispatch/accounting operating system as a workgroup network. I bought a new dispatch/accounting application that requires Windows Server. How do i configure windows Small Business Server 2003 so i can continue to use my old dispatch system and add a xp workstation and a server running SBS 2003 and my new dispatch software. I would like to be able to migrate my customer data base from old to new over a period of time but keep my operation running.I understand my new server will be the domain server which i will setup with 2 nic cards, a DSL router with a static IP. How do i set up my LAN so all 5 pc share data from both servers?
 

A:small business server 2003

A few ideas -

Since the SBS is set to be on a domain. I would say you could leave it on the domain and leave all PC's on the Workgroup you have then you will need to make sure to setup the permissions on the server so you can connect in to the drives and application that resides on it...

Does this new application run directly off the server or does it just require a network drive mapping?

If the application is loaded directly on the server and can be ran on it and it does not have to be housed on a client PC. Then you can Remote Desktop into the SBS server and load the 2000 clients with the Remote Desktop Client found here - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/tools/rdclientdl.mspx and then be connected diretly to the server and do what you need to. Then over time as you go to the new system fully you can add machines to the domain and then phase out the dos app.

This is just to clarify on what I was told in response to my previous thread.

For my small business, I have another company located in a different part of the country that will need to remotely access my server and use it as if that computer was sitting directly in front of them. The problem is I need multiple users to work on this computer at the same time.

In response I was told that I need to have a Terminal Server. I have the box that I would use the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition software on, here are some specs:

CPU: P4 2.8 Ghz
Ram: 1 GB SDRAM (cant confirm speed at current moment); can upgrade ram if need be
HD: 160 GB

If I bought the Windows Server 2003 SE for $999; and then bought a 5 pack of TS Client Access Liscenses for $749....would at LEAST 5 users from this partnering company be able to access the computer at the same time as if the computer were sitting in front of them, and are the specs of this computer enough to manage those 5 users without too much distraction?

Is the box even fast enough? Or do I need to invest in a more powerful server?

I'm better on software with apps than on OS's to be honest and my server experience is pretty basic up til now. See attached. I only have 10 licenses and am thinking of adding another user.

I saw in the OS's that one wasn't included and this is a business question really. Two things:

1. My server is a win 2k3 smallbuz with 2 remote access ports in. I can not get it to display on a direct connect monitor yet the monitor is working fine and the server can be remoted into just fine. The monitor hooks up and just does the ole flashing green indicator. Does the entire server need a reboot to address this?

2. Going on with 1 I know there is a way to view who is actually "logged" in to your server I just can't remember where at the moment. If the server thinks a direct connection is still running that may be the entire problem.

The whole problem is that I do not have a monitor and other peripherals attached to the server permanently and don't wish to. But from time to time I may have to do backups or hardware changes in which case I will have to be directly in. So would a restart help possibly? I don't want to do this anytime soon but it would be useful info for the future. Thanks for any help.

I am no guru at using MS Small Business Server (SBS) 2003 and I have this mailing problem that I just cannot work out.

The Problem:
The server is not sending emails throught the exchange. On each of the Win XP pro workstations on the network we are using Outlook 2003 as the mail client. There are two email accounts on each login. One is the email account associated with the exchange - to use and share the calendar and internal mail. The other is a POP3 account to retrieve external mail.

One of the smaller problems is that each pc when started will always default to the exchange account in Outlook, no matter what I do to get it to remain on the POP3 account that I have defaulted it to. Sending mail through the exchange is just getting bounced back from this SBS. The error message I get is:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: subject

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

Could not deliver the message in the time limit specified. Please retry or contact your administrator.
<mail.isp.net.au #4.4.7>

So it seems that it is not being able to send it through the isp.

Sending it through the POP3 account works fine (it bypasses the server). If only I could set the Outlook to keep the default to the POP3 account! It would be ideal though to get the exchange to mail out correctly.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

I went from using a netgear router/switch on my network combination to using windows small business server as a software router. The internet connection is being shared but I was wondering whether there was a way to forward ports in the same way that one would do so via netgear router for small business server?
I have huntded around the router options but I cannot find a way to forward ports in the same way as I did on the netgear router (via the http interface).

Many thanks

Hi,

Been trying to get a answer to a very simple question but couldn't find anything conlcusive.

Basically i am wondering if you would be able to install .net Framework 1.1 in a Windows Small Business Server 2008.

From what i can tell .net Framework is 32bit and SBS 2008 is a 64 bit native operating system. Cannot run 32bit applications?

I would appreciate if someone can tell for sure if i am right on my assumptions.

Thanks!

I experienced a server crash last night. In lieu of wiping out the whole hard drive I created a new installation of the server on the same hard drive. I set the server up the same, same domain and everything, but now the computers that are pointed to that domain controller do not recognize the domain. I believe most of the files from the first install are still intact, so I pretty much have two installations and am given a dual boot option for the server. Is there a way to move the users over from one installation to the other? The crashed installation is called WINNT and the fresh installation is called WINNT2. I still have the shares set up on the drive, so not everything got lost, but I was wondering if there was a way to move over the information from one management console to the other so that I do not have to recreate the users. The only way that I can get the computers to recognize the domain again is by unjoining and rejoining the domain. Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.

As simple as it sounds, all I had to do was unplug the users CAT-5 from their computers, log them into the Network (to get profiles saved on local machines), then plug in the CAT-5 and let Windows XP ask me for current credentials on users, requiring a lock of the computer (Ctrl, Alt, Del, then Enter to lock) and entrance of the proper credentials.

I recently replaced our Windows Small Business Server 2003 with a Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials server using the same domain name and same computer name. When I tried to join an existing Windows 7 Professional computer to the new domain,
i kept getting trust relationship errors. I logged on to the workstation using a local login and rejoined the domain but now all the items on the desktop have disappeared including the connection to Windows Live Mail. Can I restore this?

Hi,
 
According the issue, I suspect that your machine created a new user profile in this case. The user profile path is stored in registry, here
is the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList(check the picture).  Please check the value of ProfileImagePath.

Hi,

A Small Business Server was demoted from Primary Domain Controller to Secondary Domain Controller.

Since then, it has been unable to contact the network. Pinging the network produces a HARDWARE ERROR in dos.

The network connection is working, and a replacement network card produces the same issue.

Do you know what is causing this?

Thank,

Steve
 

A:Windows Small Business Server PING HARDWARE ERROR

Windows only does primary domain controller emulation. There is no such thing as a primary domain and secondary domain controllers anymore, that was an NT thing. If what you did was demote it and remove active directory, then I would check to make sure the static IP for the now member server is not pointing to itself for DNS.

Hi there, no idea if this is the right forum for this or not. If not, just let me know.

I'm an owner in a small business. We have 30 people. The people live all over the country and could be working in North America or South America. Right now, we all have Windows machines. We use all cloud based tools to support the business. For example, hosted exchange, Pipedrive CRM, Egnyte file sync (similar to Dropbox), LogMeIn, etc. I'm basically the computer guy, even though I don't have any background.

I have a computer image that I load onto new machines, then mail them out. Everyone logs into their respective cloud apps and away they go.

The problem becomes that people don't really like the file sync program. We used to use Dropbox, but with the limited features it had we went away from it. Egnyte is great, but it syncs more slowly.

I guess, what I'm after here is, I only know what I know. Is there some other type of configuration or setup that would be better for our company? We don't have a network, VPN, active directory, etc. and the cost of the email cloud hosting is getting to be pretty pricey ($350 per month for 50 mailboxes). Same with Egnyte sync, $15 per user per month.

I like the cloud stuff because it syncs things locally and gives everyone access to everything in a very quick manner. However, there can be file conflicts. I'm just looking for any advice on what I can do to improve our process. I feel like we're getting big ... Read more

You have to examine what you're future growth will be. I never like cloud based services but that's just me. I like to control the data and not let anyone else have physical access to it. Plus when you want to migrate off of some cloud based services, good luck in getting help from the cloud service to do this.

Depending on your future growth and what the central office (if you have one) has set up, you'll probably be staring at a large initial capital expenditure to do what you're asking which will have a long term pay off. Again this is something you all have to determine if it's acceptable.

My initial stab at this is to have data hosted at a central office either through centralized file sharing or through something like Share Point. I like Share Point as it allows change management control over all files loaded up on it. Doing it this way and depending on the performance with file transfers, you can layer on WAN acceleration devices which you will NEVER have as an option on any cloud based service. WAN acceleration helps a business better utilize existing bandwidth pipes reducing the need for a business to purchase more expensive pipes. WAN acceleration does this in a number of ways with techniques such as compression, data duplication, caching, TCP optimization, and in some cases UDP optimization. A company called Riverbed has WAN acceleration devices which also has mobile clients to extend the benefits to remote/laptop users. Typical WAN accel... Read more

My older brother has (had) a small construction business in Texas. I say had because after hurricane Ike it grew by leaps and bounds. He now has an office with 4 computers and needs to have them setup in a network. Noone their is vey computer literate and he wants me to fly out and solve this problem. I have zero experience in setting up a network, although I have done a bit of research on it. What I would like is some input or suggestions on what you teckies would suggest as being the best or easiest way to get all the system to work together. At the moment when an estimate is created on 1 comp, they are emailing it thru attachments to another or something crazy like that. He's freaking out because he can't get the office organized enough to keep up with all the documents required to get the jobs and keep the customers, insurance companies, engineers and inspectors the paper work they require thus has lost some jobs because of it. Thanks in advance. Fabe (edit) would someone please move this to the disscusion threads? I just realized I put it in the wrong one Thanks
