Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

Q: Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000


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.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

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.)

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

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?

I have a Windows 2000 Server in my home office. Two people need to access this server remotely.
What can I do so these two people can gain access to files that reside on the 2000 Server?

Thank you for looking.

The simplest way is to configure an FTP server on the server. That doesn't require any special handling. If you don't have a static IP address, you can use DynDNS or a similar service to map your dynamic IP address to a static URL.

I have a client who uses this very very bad (in my opinion) industry-specific software. It runs on a Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Services. The problem is that whenever a user opens this program, there is a session file created by it (unrelated to the operating system's login). This isn't a problem, as it's deleted when they log off... except for when this nasty program stops responding or closes without warning! Then there's a user file left over. If you try to delete it, it says that the file is locked or in use... access denied. If we restart the server (after painfully having everyone log off), I can delete the file fine... So, my quesion is: (1) is there a way of un-locking a file without restarting when this happens? And (2) is there a way to disable file locking in Windows 2000 Server?

I've found a bit of information about "opportunistic file locking", but it doesn't seem to have helped this specific problem. I figure if we can find some way to disable file locking, at least I could run a batch program every so often to delete out-dated log-ins before they run out of licenses and need to reboot.

Any help / info / etc is appreciated!

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.

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'm not sure if this should go in the software forum or here... but I think NetShield is included with Windows 2000 Server so I'll post it here.

About 3 weeks ago netshield stopped working on my server. The icon just sits in the system tray with a red circle w/ a line going through it. When I load a TS connection I am prompted with the following when the desktop loads:

"The NetShield Task Manager or On-Access Scanning service is not running on the local server. Would you like to start services now?"

I click "Yes" the red circle/line goes away for about 3 seconds and then returns.

If I right click on the icon and choose "Enable" I get the following prompt:

"The NetShield Task Manager or On-Access Scanning service is not running on the server 'MYSERVERNAME'. Would you like to start services now?"

Of course I would! So I click "Yes" and nothing happens.

If I view the services there are 3 services for this application. All of them are set to "Auto" but only two of them are running. The service not running is "Network Associates McShield." If I try to start the service I get an error stating:

"Could not start the Network Associate McShield service on local Computer.

I need to activate a network wall outlet in another room to add the blueprint printer so we can print from our desktop, instead of putting drawings on disk and going to other computers to print job. Is there any info on how to activate the outlet? I have seen the server and how the guy has the wires going from one area to another in a numbered peg-like board. I dont think this is too difficult to do, but just need some direction. The server is windows 2000 and the computer accessing the network to print uses win xp pro. Hope I gave enough info. Thanks for any help and guidance you guys can offer! Tony.

I am handling a few servers and workstation all interconnected together through routers. All the workstations and servers can map a drive to one another. Recently I have noticed that one such server of mine running windows server 2000 with Service pack 4 has encounter a major problem. The problem is that from this particular server I cant map a drive to another server or workstation at all. Worse is that other servers and workstation also cannot map a drive to that particular problem server.

As i constantly require my workstations to refer to the problem server for files, this has cause problems for work. I went to check the event viewer of that server and noticed that there is this error noted.

I called up Microsoft Support to ask them about this LsaSrv, Event 5000 problem. They provided me with this hot fix KB 829755 but it doesnt fix anything. The operator told me that this is post service pack 4 bug and hot fix should fix it. But it didnt fix anything.

I checked out some forums and some people are having the same problem and their questions are never answered too. If I contact Microsoft about this problem again I am going to be charged for a Higher level support.

I hope the gurus here will be able to help solve this network problem of mine. So far it has spread to another 2 more servers. I scan for virus and it turned up Negative. Thanks for listening...

PS : in case u guys cannot see the pic attached, the error reads, The security package Negotiate generated a... Read more

A DOS prompt keeps popping up on my 2000 Server showing Tracing activities. [RASADHLP (Tracing Active)] The only tracing that was done on this computer was Network Monitor. We uninstalled all network monitor tools and can not find where this is running from to stop it. We have also deleted any registry keys pertaining to the HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Traci. Could you help us figure out what is running so we may stop it?

I'd run a trojan/antivirus scan. I know that the SubSeven uses that dll as well as a few others.

Hackfix has a nice site that'll help you find out if you've been infected with sub7 or not. Even if not, I'd still run a full scan.

I've run into a problem setting up a Windows 2000 web server. Basically, the problem I have is permissions related, in that I am unable to update security settings to include the account used to access the web site.

Everything seems to be working on the web server except that I'm prompted for user name, password and domain to access the site. User account details are correct, the problem appears to be that Group/domain policy is not being updated with the new account. If I try to manually enter the account details, I receive this error:
"The following account could not be validated - IWAM_servername"

When I check local security settings on the web server, I see that local settings are selected, but the corresponding Effective setting is blank.

I tried disabling Group Policy (so that local policy on web server is default) but this did not work. Refresh and enforce of Group Policy did nothing either.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be most welcome.

A:Windows 2000 web server

Do you allow Anonymous logins? The IWAM_servername account is used to validate anonymous users. The site we run is secure and the IWAM account is disabled to stop anonymous logins. Other than that, I can't think of what might cause the effective setting not to accept the selected settings after a reboot.

Hi people,

yesterday i wiped my NT4 server and replaced with win2k server. Everything was great until we noticed that the three XP pro workstations we have in the office disconnect from the server...the win98 and win2k workstations are fine during this time, its just the XP pro machines that seem to experience these technicalities.
to get them back i have to disconnect them from the domain back to a workgroup, reeboot, then reconnect to the domain, where they will work fine for a few hours...then just 'drop' off again!!!

can someone help?

thanks in advance

Futher findings show that giving the three win XP machines static IP's result in no problems connecting to the domain server. I have used the 2000 server as the DHCP but i still get the same problem using that too.

I tested the connection using web browser as well as cute ftp and I have no problem in connecting by entering static IP Address from web browser and cute ftp.

I have a Compaq Proliant ML370 running Windows 2000 server.It allows me to login but then gives me a blank desktop. When I use Task manager in an attempt to browse to my system drive I am unable to run explorer.exe. The infection has diabled system related executables on the server. I can not access the internet to run an online scan either.So far I have tried the following:Cant get to a command prompt, control panel or any administrative function on the computerRemoved the infected drives & installed another in order to install fresh copy of Windows 2000After the new Windows 2000 install I then applied sp4 and 79 Microsoft critical updates.I installed a trial version of Kaspersky Enterprise AV Software on the serverI have unplugged the server from the networkEverything seemed to run fine after installing the new copy of Win 2000, until I added the infected drives, which I did scan with the Kaspersky software, however soon after the scan I started seeing signs of infection on my new drive. My NIC does not appear to be working and now Kaspersky Administration shows that I have an IP address of infection appears to have originated from a TAX program update.At this point, I can login to the server with the new drive I created, and I can see the other drives. I am afraid I will lose my ability to perform administrative tasks over time (just like the original system drive did).Just a note, almost all of the client computers on this network have been infected a...

Hey guys and gals!

I need a crash course (ie. book or online resource) on Windows 2000 Server. Where I work, we have dozens of Win2K machines and dozens of problems. My boss approached me yesterday with the possibility of hiring me to do part-time work to get everything up and running again. I told him I could do everything except server-side stuff, but I would LIKE to be able to handle things on the server end as well, I just don't have the knowledge. Anybody know where I can get it fast and cheap?


A:Windows 2000 Server help

Try the Microsoft Administrator's Pocket Consultant series of books from the Microsoft Press. There are books for Win2K server, Win2K3 server, Exchange, IIS X.0 etc. They have proven a good source of reference for me being an experienced systems admin, and use enough examples and basic understanding for anyone to understand.
