Domain Application distribution?

Q: Domain Application distribution?

I just setup an Active Directory, and I was wandering if I could let my server host all the network applications (such as MSN), and the PC's just use a "\\SERVER-1\%application_name%" link to run it. Is this possible? The server is a Windows Server 2008 and the Client PC's are running different OS's ranging from XP to 7. Would I need to install a Windows Role and/or Feature to make this work?

Preferred Solution: Domain Application distribution?

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 am responsible for about 225 Windows XP PCs on a Novell network. If anyone has experience pushing updates or new applications to several hundred PCs, I am looking for the best (easiest) way to do this. I just finished an upgrade that I did using sneaker-net, and it was too much.
 

A:application distribution

LOL, Sneakernet, haven't heard that term in a while....

here's a couple places to start digging,
mostly the type of thing like running them from a network share on some server via batch file or script, plus Microsoft has quite a few options in the remote deployment arena

It may or may not be exactly what you're looking for, but at least it's a start.
edit: I dunno what's up with the domain on that last link, I didn't even notice it until after I posted it, I'm looking into it, that's just weird.

Hello everyone,

We are running into a somewhat peculiar issue that I have been unable to find any information about and I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.



Several of our Windows 7 laptops (We're working on moving to W10) have become unable to change the password for a domain account from the Change a Password screen after hitting CTRL ALT DEL. Usually when someone would select to change their password,
it would take them to the text boxes with the domain\username pre-populated, I'm sure you are familiar.

Recently, when following the same steps, an account selection screen comes up with the option to use a smart card or simply type in the username. While we are working on implementing smart cards, they are not yet in use and in fact should not even
show any options for them yet. After opting to type in a user account, rather than populating the username field with domain\username, the field remains blank with grey text saying "provider\user name" instead. If the user types in their domain\username
and attempts to change the password, they get a generic error stating it is unable to change the password.



Users are still able to use a co-workers machine to change their password from the same screen by substituting the username. Most of the affected machines are from users that work in the same team, even though those same users can change their passwords
elsewhere just fine. It appears to be isolated to specific ... Read more

Hello,
Currently we are in the middle of a migration project. We are migrating users from child domains to the root domain of one organization.
The user accounts are migrated with powershell using Move-ADObject cmdlet. This works as expected. The SIDHistory attribute is updated correctly.
Recently we received complaints from some *migrated* users - they lost their default/custom file associations. This happens only on Windows 8/Windows 8.1.
What happens:

the user is migrated and logs onher profile loads and everything's preserved (as expected)the user clicks on a .jpeg file (previously associated with program XYZ)OS asks the user to choose a program to open the file withthe user chooses a default program XYZ and the file openswhen the user clicks on a .jpeg file again - OS asks to choose a program again
i.e. the settings are not preserved.

Our investigation shows that it is connected with the UserChoice registry key and the HASH value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.SomeExt

According to this blog 
the HASH is calculated based on user's SID. But after the migration the user has new SID and the HASH becomes invalid and we hit this:

User X has working credentials for both domains.

I'm running into a problem with connecting to network drives over a VPN. The common difference is whether or not the computer is part of the domain by default.

1) Computers connecting to VPN using local account on computer: Prompted for a domain login when attempting to use the network drives. Can get in.

2) Computers connecting to VPN using a domain account (but on another network): Unable to connect. Specific error changed based on below info.
A) Computer logged on and connected to an outside network. Never connected to domain network: Can't find folder error.
B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

Hi,

I hit major problems yesterday when a power surge killed my server (despite ups/surge protection!). We have a small set up of 15 win2k machines and one Windows server 2003 all connected under a domain.

Basically all user machines were unaffected but my only method of getting us up and running was installing a fresh version of 2003 server on a new machine. i followed this guide and configured it to use the same domain as last time (hoping that all the client machines would carry on as they were before the server out). i've managed to set up access to shared drives hosted on the network. That is working.

However i am now having these problems on all client machines

Client machines cannot connect to shared printers from another client machine. - Logging on as an administrator to their machine locally (not domain) you can add and print. Simply changing their policies to admin does not allow them access.
Each machines is still connected to the domain (so it says) but if you take them off and try to put them back on the domain i get this error:the following error occurred attempting to join the domain " ". network path was not found

We have been getting sporadic reports from our users of the error, "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  The workaround has been to dejoin and rejoin the domain, but it keeps happening and we need a permanent
fix.  We are primarily a laptop shop.
It has been suggested we disable the automatic machine accouint password change on our domain members in GPO.  While this may be a viable option with relatively low security risks, I'd really like to figure out why it's happening and try to
fix it. 
The machines can lose the trust relationship at random.  It can happen overnight, or after going into hibernation.  I've had it happen to me a few times.  The DCs (we have 2) both show error 5722, but one is spitting out a specific Kerberos
error that the other one is not:

While processing an AS request for target service krbtgt, the account kriegesh did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 2).
The requested etypes : 18. The accounts available etypes : 23  -133  -128  3  1. Changing or resetting the password of kriegesh will generate a proper key.
My main issue is trying to determine why this continues happening and if we can resolve it without disabling the account password.  If that IS our best option, then so be it.  Any
thoughts are welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!  ~Sarah

We're currently in the process of mediation around here, too.

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

Hello everyone.

A while back before I knew better I gave a client of mine an active directory domain that ended in .org and did not exist on the internet at the time. Now, I'm discovering in the DNS event log at regular intervals errors about how the computers in the internal domain are unable to register in the DNS server of the web domain of the same name. So, my question is whether there is something I can do to change the Active Directory domain so that I don't get those errors anymore.
They're running Windows 2003 server standard with Active Directory, roaming profiles, routing and remote access for VPN, DHCP server, standard fileserver, and print server. I may have missed one or two things but likely I haven't. The server has itself as the primary DNS server though it's not the 127 address it's the actual IP. The secondary server is the router but I have the DHCP giving out the servers for opendns.com as options 3 and 4 after the Domain Controller and the router but I had the problem before adding the opendns.com entries.
Anyone know why the local DNS server is trying to register entries in the DNS server of the web domain? Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about fixing it?
Thanks

Did you mean to place those machines into different subnets?

To be in the same subnet the third octet would need to be the same on both machines plus matching workgroup names although the Domain's Group Policy may prevent sharing outside the Domain while connected to the Domain can only guess on that.

Hello everyone. I really hope that you can help me. You are my last hope.

I maintain about 30 domain computers. Recently when users try to log in on most of them the following error appears frequently:

"Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. if the message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance."

I have seen that this error appears only in the computers with Windows XP and not in the computers with Windows Vista or 7. We have 2 domain controllers.

Please let me tell you about the ways I tried to resolve this problem and their results:

- on some computers, after several restarts the users are able to log in, but if they restart or shutdown after that the error appears again; this worked for some computers, but I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- on some computers, when i disabled the windows firewall or allowed all kind of ICMPs it was resolved, but this did not work for all the computers and I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- I unjoined and then rejoined some computers from the domain and it was resolved but after restarting the error appears again.
- If I unplug the network cable the users can log in but after restart the error appears again.
- I have tried to reset the user password and computer on the Active Directory for some users and... Read more

I am set up on a domain from an old work server that no longer exists and I want to switch back to a non-domain setup (XP Pro). I am worried that I might lose all of my data/settings/etc. Is there a certain procedure I should follow to make the change?

My Desired Outcome:

1) Change the name of my computer.
2) Remain the administrator
3) Keep all the data and settings as they are in my existing user account
4) Ditch the domain (and cached login profile) I am currently using
5) Get rid of useless drive mappings
5) Still use a user/pass to login (for security purposes)

This is my personal laptop and I am the local admin on my pc. I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.

A:How Do I Switch From Domain To Non-domain?, without losing my data

I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.stravs,Ok let's get started on this. You said you are the local administrator on your laptop, good you need to be! Now even though the laptop is not accessing the server anymore you can still login to the domain administrator account, if someone has logged into that account before. Basically if the domain administrator has signed onto that laptop when it was on the server at one point, the system will remember the cached password for that account. You won't really need it as long as you have the local administrator login.Just a thought, do you have access to another computer and the internet, or are you using this laptop to sign on here and get instructions? If this laptop is your only means for getting on the net, I would print these instructions out.1) You will want to rem... Read more

I have a Machine with windows 7 x64 pro which was connected to a domain controller that is dead and not available anymore.
I want to continue to use this computer standalone and keep all the software and configurations already installed, however i need to change my pass and i am not able to do it getting this msg : configuration
information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or because access is denied.
How can i solve this (change the pass or copy all the user settings to local) without the domain controller server?

My older (third computer) needs a new operating system, and I don't want to pay . I will be giving this computer to someone who doesn't know much about computers, and the specs are as follows:

Intel Pentium III @ 866MHz
40GB Hard Drive (Not sure of brand nor speed)
128MB SD-Ram
(Model Sony VAIO #PCV-RX360DS)

I want to try to get a distribution of Linux on the computer, and since the computer is not currently running an operating system, and I'm not skilled with Linux (usually in the CPU or Vid Card section of this site so...) I need help. Thank you for any help.
 

A:Which Linux Distribution?

I've always found that the Ubuntu distribution is a good choice for this sort of computer. It's based on Debian . . . very stable and proven.
Try a "Live" copy first if you like.
Nothing is installed to the hard drive . . it runs completely from the DVD ROM.
To date I haven't had a problem getting it to find any hardware on laptops nor set-top boxes.
Good Luck

Can someone tell me of a way a person can distribute a file to other people other than e-mail and are not connected to a network. I appreciate any help.
 

A:File distribution

You could try a free filesharing programme
http://www.wfshome.com/

Or a paid for web hosting service - there's lots out there, some with trial periods
http://www.mydocsonline.com/

Instant messaging - they allow you to send a file

Via a website if you have one

If they are photos - there's free pic hosting sites
http://www.photobucket.com/

Or you could mail them a floppy

I have inherited a list of 57 email addresses that I will use frequently over the next months. Is there a way to create a distribution list in Outlook without having to enter each address as a new contact? Can I cut and past the whole list into a distribution list? Currently, I have savied as a word document and just cut and past into bcc field when I have to send, but I'd love to have this in an Outlook list if possible.

Does anyone know the maximum number of email addresses that one can include on a single message in Outlook? I have another list that has 194 names on it. What's the best way to send as a mass email? This is a neighborhood security patrol alert announcement email, not advertising.
 

A:Distribution list

Hi needhelp1950

Your ISP determines how many e-mail addresses you can send at one time. You might try a maximum of 25 addresses to see if that message is allowed through or not.
Otherwise, call your ISP to see what their limitations are.

Copy the e-mail addresses to a spreadsheet and Import them into Outlook.
First, Export your existing Contacts from Outlook as a .csv file to see the template that Outlook uses. Then copy the names into the .csv file and Import it back into Outlook.
Which version of Outlook are you using?

This is my first post on this site so I hope this is the correct forum for this topic. I'm finally upgrading to a new PC which of course will have Windows 8. I'm coming off of an XP machine and will need to transfer my files and folders. Simple enough, however I've read both here and MS site about the libraries and file system that W8 uses and how they're different than older versions so I'm now a bit confused as to the proper way to distribute my files when I put them on the new machine. For example, in XP I simply had a single folder for each piece of machinery (CNC machine that is) which contained all the documents (.pdf, xls, etc.), pictures, and videos directly pertaining to that individual machine. If I understand the W8 library system correctly, for best results I should now start an individual folder for each machine in each of the Windows libraries. That is, a folder in Documents for machine X, a folder in Pictures for machine X, a folder in Videos for machine X, etc. and then continue the same way for machine Y and so on. Am I correct? I have no problem doing this I'm just looking for best procedures to follow whenever possible and use the OS as designed.
Sorry for the rookie question, but most of my experience using computers, besides the typical "home" use has been with PPCL programming and process control. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Help with file distribution

You can set it up any way you want. There is no requirement to make the changes you mention. If you're comfortable with the structure you have now, stay with it. No need to even use Libraries unless you want to.

My recommendation would be to stay as you are initially, then as you get used to Windows 8, and it will take considerable getting used to, especially coming from XP, start making changes that add to the usability. Just my $.02 worth.

I work at a small private school that occassionally sends school information home to parents. The school has tasked me with researching a way that we, the school, can send emails containing the school information to parents.

Our list of parents who want to receive these emails is about 300 - 350 parent email addresses. Our desire is to develop emails containing important school related info. and email everybody on the list as a BCC. Our desire is to transmit these emails but not allow anybody to "Reply" to the emails.

Does anybody know of an easy way we can email messages in mass?

We are hoping for a simple and economical way to simply send one-way emails to parents.

We do not want to use the current email engine that presently exists within our school system. (The reasons we don't want to use our current email system is a whole other story and is not for this forum.)

I am new to forums and hope I haven't over stated my self. I will appreciate any feedback from anybody.

Create a distribution list. I don't understand what you mean when you say you can't use "the current e-mail engine". Are you referring to the client or the server?

I am interested in creating a website where people can go and sign up to receive a green newsletter. The only information I need for them to provide is there name, email address and age range. Is there a program that I can purchase and put on Windows XP Professional or Windows 2003 server. I prefer not to use an outside service like constant contacts. I would like the program to automatically save the information after the person enters it so that it does not have to be imputed manually. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
