File Copy between Win10 and Win2003 Server

Q: File Copy between Win10 and Win2003 Server

I'm have an issuing when copying a file from a Windows 10 workstation to a FQDN Windows server 2003 resource.
The environment is as follows;

Windows 2003 SP2 Server (x86) (Domain Controller)
FQDN = server1.company.local
IP Address =
NETBIOS NAME = server1
Windows 10 Pro workstation (x64)
The issue manifests in both a command line and windows file explorer environment.
Here is a command line example using robocopy (the issue also happens with copy/xcopy)
TEST1 (NETBIOS) robocopy c:\test \\server1\data\temp file.dat = file copies OK
TEST2 (IP ADRESS) robocopy c:\test \\\data\temp file.dat = file copies OK
TEST3 (FQDN) robocopy c:\test \\server1.company.local\data\temp file.dat = file copy is very slow / unsuccessful
server1.company.local resolves to the correct ip of
This issue only manifests on the two Windows 10 systems we have in the business. We have 70+ WIndows 7 systems that do not present the issue.
The issue temporarily resolves when the effect Windows10 system is rebooted but the issue re-manifests hours/days later.

Thanks in advance . . .

Preferred Solution: File Copy between Win10 and Win2003 Server

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 installed Win2003 SBS. How do I get Exchange to work? I have done the "Internet and E-mail" setup under Server Management, but still do not appear to have user mail boxes, and cannot confirm names when I set up Outlook. Is there a place where MS explains how to set up the Exchange server on Win2003 SBS? I have tried checked their site, but get really lost. Any help will be deeply appreciated. Thanks.

I am trying to put a ASP page onto my website which gives the status of an online game that is running on another server. The directions say to register a dll file that comes with it called GameQuery.dll. It works fine on my WinXP Home machine, but not on my web server. I am running "Windows Server 2003 Web Edition". The command the directions say to type in the Start -> Run box is:

regsvr32.exe GameQuery.dll

That is supposed to be type after it is put into your C:\WINDOWS folder. (Which it was). However I am getting an error message when I try to register the DLL, which is as follows:

DllRegisterServer in GameQuery.dll failed.
Return code was: 0x80040154

Any suggestions? I'd appreciate it.

Hey everyone,

I can connect fine via RDC to a Win2003 server, ftp files etc.
But I can't see any drives from the Vista box under \\tsclient on the Win2003 box.

I've shared the drives out, set the RDC connection local resources to share my drives but no luck.
In the RDC session to Win2003 in explorer I see the \\tsclient but nothing in it, nor can I map anything from that path.

Very fustrated, I'm admin on both boxes.

Thanks for any help.

Mods, feel free to move this if security isn't the place for it to be. I'm a little stumped.

I have an old PC running Win2003 server. It is next to my desk, and is only used in emergencies as a "backup" server. I'm doing a little security check on it today...making sure AV is up to date, running some things. I go to check the registry for any signs of bad stuff, and the run line comes up with this already typed in... oobe/msoobe /a. That's the Windows activation for "legit" installs, right? And, isn't it just for XP? I didn't do this. The only other person who has the admin password on the machine swears she didn't do it...and I believe her...she stays away from techinical issues.

So my big question is how did this get here? I'm looking for any "behind the scenes" possibility, because I don't think anyone from our IT dept has keys to this office. Thanks!!

A:msoobe /a on a Win2003 Server??

Can't tell you how it got there, but oobe/msoobe /a is the same on 2003 as xp, they both have to be activated.

I'd be grateful if someone could please give us some advise. One of my customers restored a sql 2000 db onto a win2003 server. The backup was taken from a win2000 server. Basically they have 3 to 4 XP pro clients which run applications that intially connect to the Sql Databse, by pointing the application to the server and db through Data link proprties. There were no problems when the clients were connecting via win2000. But after restoring the database to win2003, when trying to connect the clients to the instance of sql e.g. INFINEER\SERVER, user name sa, etc. i get msg saying instance does not exist or access denied. I went into cliconfg and setup named pipe alias for the server, but still no joy.
The same application installed on the win2003 server, connects to the database without problems. None of the clients seem to be able to find the sql database. I can ping the server from the xp clients.


A:Win2003 server & XP pro problems please help

If the backup was from another computer the restore probably did not have any regestry entries, this maybe why it will not work. Try importing the database from the 2000 server into the 2003 server.

I have a windows 2003 ent active directory, and in my branches I have win 2000 DC severs all in one Domain structure. my problem is that users I am forced to let users log on the branch server to run certain application on a daily basis. Doing this they can open active directory users and computers and change users settings like unlock user or reset his password. How can I allow them to log on locally but cant access critical tools.
I tried using the GP to deny access to Active directory users MMC, but that was applied on me too (administrator).

I appreciate your help.

thank you

A:Solved: users Log on to server win2003

You need to put your users in an OU, and apply the GP to that OU. I suspect your implemented a GP domain wide. The other suggestion I have to is to create and name each GP seperatly so you know what does what intsead of making a bunch of changes in one GP. Yes it's tedious but in the long run it is better.

Ok so here is the Setup:

Win2k3 AD Domain
Win2k3 Server running IIS w/ FTP Only... Anon Login/ challenged file/folder access
Various other PCs
All PCs w/ XP SP2 have Windows Firewall Turned OFF

Here is the Problem:
I can connect to any FTP server using my XP SP2 PCs w/o issue. I can connect to my FTP (2k3) with any PC running XP SP1 or less (ie. Win2k, NT, 9x...). I CANNOT connect to my 2k3 FTP server with ANY XP SP2 PC.... I can't connect coming from the outside in, I can't connect coming from the inside to the outside and back in, I can only connect if I use the local IP or DNS.

With that said, I know the issue is not my router. I have check and rechecked all the settings on the router thoroughly and nothing was ever change on it since long before I started updating to SP2. I have checked and re-checked all the settings on my 2k3 server including reading the logs(actually the logs are suggesting that I have actually made good connections...I'd like to tell them otherwise tho...).

Is there any known issue with XP SP2 connecting to an FTP site on a 2k3 server? I have scoured the Internet looking for an answer.... everything is about 3rd party FTP clients and nothing is noting XP SP 2 to 2k3 server connection issue.

I run a home server with a Windows Server 2003 operating system, and since my main PC never lasts more than a few weeks before the motherboard's southbridge inexplicably fries (like with smoke and boiling silicon) my server has been doubling up as my primary computer for a while.

I can't say I've treated this thing like a server security-wise, and I've had a couple of infections, but I've had no trouble fixing them on my own.

However, a few days ago, my browser started randomly redirecting to bogus pages (that are usually somewhat "related" to my search) when clicking on Google results. If I use the back button and click on the result again it always takes me to the right page. But almost every time I click on a new result (but not always) it redirects me to another page.

That's what first tipped me off.

So, I did what I always do when my anti-virus program doesn't catch it. I download Spybot S&D.

It installed fine, but when I run the actual program it starts, and shows up in the process list, but hangs, shows 0 CPU usage, and the GUI never appears.

This is the first application that this happened with. So, I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and installed that. I run it and the exact same thing happens.

At this point I'm wondering what it could have possibly been that I had downloaded that gave me the bugger while I download and install HJT!. I go through the HJT! log and find some minorly suspicious things that I remove, but no executables t... Read more

I manage a Win2003 server wich is an Active Directory and Domain Controller, and at the moment it has a PPTP VPN Server, SQL Server 2000, Project Server, IIS, It's kind of a testing server.

I've been maneging this server for sometime with remote desktop, 'til it was attacked, then I began updateing Windows with Windows Update (it seems that nobody before made updates to this server).

Now I can't get remote desktop without it freezen the server to death after sometime connected. I installed VNC as an alternative for Remote Desktop but I don't like it as much. I've tryed to connect from differents sources, Windows 98, 2000, XP SP1 and SP2, Linux, always getting the same result at very random times doing very random things.

Cleaning the server I found Slave.exe wich is reported to be a Remote Manager that is very use as a Trojan, so I get it off but it didn't resolved the problem.

It freezes so bad that I don't get any logs about it

Presently have 2 Windows 2000 Domain Controllers, along with 2 newly added Windows 2003 Domain Controllers in my network. I have a Unix machine running Solaris 2.8 with samba-2.2.6, which is used to store all the users home directories.

So prior to any Win2003 servers being installed, all seemed to be working fine. A user would log on, his home directory would map automatically, no problems. I then built two new Win2003 DC’s and brought them into my network. They are running fine right now for the most part. But when I switch over FSMO roles to the new DC’s (to ultimately retire the Win2k DC’s) and change the “password server” setting in the smb.conf file on the unix machine to point to the 2003 DC with the PDC Emulator Role, the users can no longer gain access to their home directories. It prompts them for a user ID and password if they try to map the drive.

Here are the current settings in our smb.conf file

# Global parameters
workgroup = HUNTERGEO
server string = Samba Server
security = SERVER
encrypt passwords = Yes
password server = newjersey
password level = 8
log file = /scratch/samba/%m.log

Hi Guys,

I was at a site where printers were setup and shared on a Win 2003 Server. The HDD on the server crashed and the HDD was ghosted to another drive.

The only problem is now i cant print to any of the shares on the server from any of the workstations. However, printing from the server to the printers are all ok. I've deleted the printers on the workstations and re-added them and it still will not work.

I do noticed that the jobs are sent from the workstation to the server queue (can see the job pop up in the queue box of both workstation and server) and then disappears like all is okay but i dont get a printout.

I've tried installing a new copy of the driver (replacing the drivers not keeping the existing drivers) and still no good.

I can however print from the server to the same share off a workstation without a problem.

Any help would be great.

A:Win2003 server denies access for record of boot GHOST


I'm sorry but I really did try to understand your post, but the english is terrible,

I guess what your trying to achieve is a mapped drive from a PC and your getting "access denied" when using a 98 bootdisk with ghost.

The error can occur is the permissions for the folder are incorrect, or the folder isnt set to be shared.

When creating the disk and you are asked for a share to connect to it should be in the format \\domainserver\folder.
This same folder should be set to be shared on the domain PC and the permissions set to everyone.

Hope this helps

The problem is only with PDF files. He can open and copy any other files. And it's only on his Windows XP machine. His Windows 7 machine works just fine (he can copy and open PDF files from server A).

The two servers (Windows 2016) are set up identically as far as NTFS permissions. The only difference is that server A is set up in DFS while server B is being pre-seeded before being added to DFS.

DFS namespace type is: domain (Windows Server 2008 mode).

The XP machine had no problem under server A when the DFS namespace type was Server 2000 mode, but I'm not sure that would cause the problem.

I have got two PCs win2003 and XP,,,,,PCA and PCB (both PCs on my LAN through my linksys router WAG54G V2).

I created a folder on PCA (win2003), called "My Stuff",,,I created many users on PCA (employees, jsmith, test1, test2), I enabled sharing for the folder "My Stuff", and I gave permission (read only) to the username "employees" only, I deleted the username "Everyone" which is by default there.

1- From PCB (XP) , I opened run, then I typed in : \\ win2003
2- Screen poped up (first time), I typed in the username:jsmith (not employees), the password:newsletter.
3- I was able to see "My Stuff", since it is shared folder, but I could not access, since jsmith has not been given permission to access it (only username "employees" has been given permission to access it ).
4- After that (second time, third time,,,etc), when I try to type in: \\, I will be forwarded to a window with "My Stuff" folder (PCB still remember the previous session for username "jsmith"), I was not able to type in the username: test1, password: forum (because I have not greeted with a pop up screen!!!!),,,,,,,,,,What should I configure to let the (PCB) provides me with the pop screen for the new username (employees) ?
5- When I tried to type in : \\\My Stuff (when I typed in only \\ no erro message),,,,,,I received this error message :

I have a server running Win 2003 Server. I removed the cover to clean the inside. Now when it restarts I get the hault that the cover has been removed and bypass by F2. I've cleared msgs in past on Win98 & 95 by going into Bios and changing the options. When I tried to do it on this server I could not find it.

A friend emailed me directions telling me to go into setup/system security/chassis intrusion and change detected to Enabled, Enabled-Silent or Disabled. I tried this & there is not a system security or chassis intrusion option.

Can anyone tell me how to clear this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

I'm currently in the process of copying files back from the cloud in the exact same location where I had them before and now it says that the file name is too long and prompts to see whether I want to skip the file or not. The error message given does not
give the full file name or the path so it is impossible to see which files were copied successfully or not. This never happened with XP! Then afterwards I found that some of the files with long names did copy successfully whereas others didn't. I find this
to be a very user unfriendly process and I'm totally confused! These are critical files and I'm sure I haven't exceeded 260 characters or whatever. This is soOoO frustrating!!


A:file copy error message not sufficient + file name too long will not copy

Hi ,

There is a limit of filename length within Windows Explorer. In the Windows API (with some exceptions discussed in the following paragraphs), the maximum length for a path is MAX_PATH, which
is defined as 260 characters.
The shell and the file system have different requirements. It is possible to create a path with the Windows API that the shell user interface is not able to interpret properly.
This means that your long filename can only be handled at the command prompt level and you cannot drag and drop an illegal length filename within Windows Explorer.

Please simplify your folders and titles.

More information, please check the part of Maximum Path Length Limitation in the link below.

I have Win10 and a 2 Terabyte external drive.

I want to hang small old drives off the machine and copy their contents (200G, 100G, stuff like that) to that 2 Tera drive so's I can then wipe them and perhaps use them for other purposes.

Windows copy seems uncertain. I leave it and come back and it has stopped.

Got this Reflect thing but I'm uncertain as to whether that's (disk image) the best way to go and uncertain as to whether it will destroy all existing data on the destination disk - they fail to make that clear.

Seems to me I need a guaranteed dedicated interruptable, restartable copier that will take up where it left off.

Anyone got any ideas on the best way to go?

A:Best Way To Copy Hard Drives on Win10

Macrium Reflect will only overwrite if doing a clone from source HD onto a target HD. Doing full images will not overwrite anything on the target HD. As you add one old small HD after another, you can either do a end-user choice[s] of Data folders/files image or a partition image onto the target HD.

Concerning data folders/files copying from source to target, perhaps you're trying to copy too big a chunk at once, try copying in smaller chunks. TeraCopy will also work with large quantitie of small to medium sized files.

We have some computers with Windows 8 installed in a public library for the public to use. They are locked down tight with local GPO and is not in a domain since they need only Internet access. We have now switched to Windows 10 as OS on new computers and I was wondering if I could some how just copy the local GPO from the old Windows 8 computer so I did not have to run through all options and set the them again in order to lock the new computers down as tight due to security. Has anyone any idea if this is possible?

I'm trying to copy a VHD (22g, dynamic I think...)

I tried richcopy. It says copy started, but then stops....

I saw someone mention xcopy /j, to achieve the unbuffered I/O perf. you get with richcopy...

it's running, but no indication as to how long it takes (EDIT: just finished, > 10 mins),

what's the syntax for single files?

Can't you just paste the path into the source?

(starts, and stops... any logs?)

A:how do I copy a BIG single file (using richcopy?) big file copy

Use this command if the VHD is sitting on C:

robocopy "C:\Users\yourName\VHD Folder" "S:\Storage Folder" *.* /COPY:DAT /E

Change yourname and replace VHD Folder with the name of the folder where the VHD resides. S:\Storage Folder is where you want to store it.

This is driving me bonkers and I have almost no hair left. I really hope someone can help.

When I attempt to copy or move a file or folder from my Win7 box to my WinXP (SP3) media server, the operation nearly always fails. Take, for example, my trying to copy the VLC Media Player folder (704 files, 75.1 MB) from Program Files on Win7 to the C: drive on the media server via a mapped drive (X). In all cases, after hanging up at some point during the copy, I get this message:

Network Error
There is a problem accessing X:\<whatever current sub-folder copying is>
Make sure you are connected to the network and try again

I should note here that you only see the message come up if you wait for it (~1 min) after the copy hangs. If you try to cancel the hung copy before the message comes up, you can crash explorer.exe. I must also stress that there are no other access problems on the network. Files on the media server are accessible as expected from the Win7 box. Performing the same copy in reverse ("pulling" the same folder to the XP box from its console instead of "pushing" from Win7) works perfectly. All machines are in WORKGROUP and the same exact credentials are in use on all machines. All machines run the same version of Symantec Endpoint Protection and have firewall rules configured to allow all LAN traffic. All machines are connected through a Linksys SD2005 5-port GB "dumb" switch. Routing/DHCP is provided by a D-Link DI-604. ... Read more

One of the office computers I have running windows 10 Pro stopped connecting to 1 of our 2012Server using remote desktop connection (RDP). It will connect or other 2012 servers at different locations using different IP Addresses I have disabled the Firewall, Turned off Antivirus, and yes, I have rebooted the PC. Also the User account and password do work if I login to the Remote Server from another PC in the Same office, So it is a Problem with the Win10 PC. I Changed the Network group from Public to Private, still no go. It acts like it just wont connect just that one remote IP server address, all the other remote server I try to connect to work just fine. Is there a file that needed to be Updated, or cache that needs flushed? This happened after the w10 update, but again I dont want to remove all updates, as this connection problem is only giving me trouble on 1 server connection.

Just thought I'd post a note incase others are having issues with the mail App, M$ has quietly changed the Mail App's Server for my old Hotmail Account and the Mail App is no longer connecting to that Hotmail account to sync, has not for 5 days but I hadn't noticed as I am using WLM and accessing it via IMAP instead usually .

The Server has been switched to eas.outlook.com from bayXXX-m.hotmail.com and won't let me change it back , but so far I have not tried to remove the Account and re-add it as I was hoping it was just a problem on the Server end and M$ would sort it out in a day or two but so far that has not happened. I am guessing all the Email is still accessible on Outlook.com too but personally I don't like WebMail and so far WLM and IMAP isn't an issue.

My other Hotmail Account on the Bay.Hotmail Servers is still fine BTW.
