Certificates getting wiped out on Window Server 2003

Q: Certificates getting wiped out on Window Server 2003

My company has a client that's running Windows Server 2003 in his office. For legal reasons, we can't support his server for him, only the application that we installed on his server. Server maintenance has to come from his 3rd party people. I'm just curious though.

This application of ours connects to a secure site that our company maintains. Every couple weeks, the application stops logging in to our website and he calls us to get it fixed. We Webex to his server and always see the same error. We found that if we open up IE and enter the web address in the address bar, we get a prompt for the certificate. Our application doesn't have the ability to answer this "Yes", "No", "View Certificate" prompt. So we go through the process of installing the certificate. After that, the app works flawlessly for a couple weeks before he calls us again. It's stopped logging in. After we browse to the site and install the certificate again, everything's fine. He's nice but he's tired of having to call us everytime this expires.

He's the only client out of about 1900 that has this problem. He's also the only one AFAIK that's running our app on Server 2003. I've seen Server 2003 but only have about a week's training experience with it. What kind of settings can I have this guy's support team look for on the system to keep this certificate from disappearing every couple weeks? No one uses the server to browse the web so manually installing the cert every couple weeks isn't really an option. We like to install our app on systems people hardly ever touch because there's less chance of something "changing."

Preferred Solution: Certificates getting wiped out on Window Server 2003

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.)

Hey everyone,
This looks like the type of place im looking for with a problem I have.
Hopefully posted in the right place if not please feel free to advise me best place to pose this question.

Here at work we had our pc's networked up last summer to a Windows Server 2003 we are only a small company so only have about ten pc's in the network.

The guys that set it up put on Symantec Antivirus 10.1 for us (my boss like it I know its not the best but he will not change).

My question is the year is coming to the end so the license is about to expire I know this from checking the Admin Tools, Then the Symantec System Centre and following the correct tabs. It expires Aug 2nd.

The people who fitted the system have quote us about £345 to renew this.

I was looking for advice on how to do it myself, I remember when we had single user license's for Norton we had a bubble popping up when it was about to expire and was simply a case of clicking on it and updating the details, I take it 10.1 version is not the same as I cant see a easy way of doing it.

Any help on how to do this would be very much appriciated.

Thanks in advance

You could put in trusted sites as a wildcard which would take care of the whole domain i.e. *.techsupportforum.com. I don't think you mean you want to disable enhanced security, but you can.

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.

Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

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.

The previous VeriSign 128-bit International (Global) Server Intermediate certification authority certificate expired on January 7, 2004. This may cause problems for clients that try to establish server-authenticated secure socket layer (SSL) connections with Web servers and other SSL/Transport Layer Security (TLS)-enabled applications that do not have up-to-date certificates.

To prevent these problems, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) operators should contact VeriSign to update the intermediate certification authority certificates for servers that use 128-bit SSL to connect to Web sites with the Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol.

Hi All,
I will be deploying ATA 1.6 in our dev environment in the coming weeka and just needing a bit of help clearing up some detail with the "how-to" aspect of certificate generation. The environment I will be installing into is AD based with it's own
CA, so I won't be looking to use the self signed certs (unless someone can give me a good reason otherwise) and am wanting to get the certs provisioned from our own internal CA.
1. IIS certificate is easy, no problems here as I've done quite a few.
2. The Server Authentication template does not seem to be enabled within our environment, so I cannot use the Advanced Certificate Request form from the web portal as I can for the IIS CSR. I looked at generating a Server Authentication Certificate from
the certificates MMC, however I am getting lost under the Certificate Enrollement Policy page as policies configured by my administrator do not include a Server Authentication type.
I am getting the feeling I am going to need to either (a) get the Server Authentication template enabled or (b) generate a certificate template to facilitate this request. In either case I will need detail on what exactly is needed and why to get anything
like this approved. Can anyone help with more detailed/specific instructions on what needs to be done to generate the certificate here?
I guess the other option would be to use our internal CA for the IIS cert (trusted by all in the domain) and then use self signed for the ATA Center... Read more

I tried to install window Sever r2 on my laptop which originally has a window 7
I mistakenly chose the same drive of window 7 . Finally, Window R2 overwrote the original window.This is the situation .Now I want to ask the following question:

1, How can I retrieve back the original window ?
I see there is a "window.old" folder in the new OS. I have read some web site. They say I can do sth to go back. But the problem is i bought the laptop from dell . I dont have the recovery disk. And I called the customer service . They asked to go through a "restore process". But the process would wipe out all the documents I have

2. are there any ways I can go back to window 7 without deleting my documents ?

Thanks a lot

Why not backup your documents to a blank dvd/cd, usb stick or something like https://skydrive.live.com/ and do the restore, it will be a lot safer that trying to do a restore without dataloss.

Last night I spent 8 hours typing a story that I had my heart set on for quite some time. I was very proud of myself and how everything was going. Well, after I got done with half of it I saved my document. I went to go open it this morning and every single character in the document has been turned into a space. I am not very thrilled with this. I have Google Searched after Google Search trying to find ways to:

1: Recover the document
2: Find the Windows 7 version of the TEMP folder so I can recover my lost time and effort
3: Just get my document back.

Does anyone have any clue that could help me with anything besides type it again?


A:Word 2003 wiped my document!

Never heard of that happening. If it isn't in the autosave directory, then you are kind of screwed. I believe Word2003 uses the the %temp% variable for it's temp folder if you haven't turned on autosave.

By default, the %temp% folder is %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp.

I am trying to replace the auto generated self-signed (Issued to DM, issued by DM) certificates for the HDPM Server and Master Repository.  I am NOT refereeing to FTPS, the HPDM Embedded HTTPS Server, or the Thin Client Agent certs.   I have already setup certs from our own domain internal CA for FTPS in IIS and the Apache Embedded HTTPS server.  These are working fine and Repository tests pass for both protocols.  I have also issues to the Thin Clients from our internal CA just fine. I'm interested in the actual HPDM Server cert and Master repository cert. These are self-generated when the two services start up.  They use a very weak MD5 hash and RSA 1024 key.  I cannot find any documentation around this except for troubleshooting in which you can delete these certs restart the services and they will be regenerated.   Here are the certs\key paths%HPDM Install Path%\MasterRepositoryController\Controller.crt (Repository Cert)%HPDM Install Path%\MasterRepositoryController\Controller.key (Repository Key)%HPDM Install Path%\MasterRepositoryController\Client.crt (HPDM Server Cert)%HPDM Install Path%\Server\Bin\hpdmskey.keystore (Both HPDM Server and Repository Certs and Keys)(Not sure the format it is in.  It's not PEM and ok P12 as far as I can tell) There is also %HPDM Install Path%\Server\bin\hpdmcert.key.  Not sure what this is.  Think it?s the HPDM Server key but deleting it does nothing and it is ne...

Okay what are the steps needed to make the new Windows 2003 server take over all roles that the old 2003 server had? Here is the scenario. I have 1 2003 server this was really only a glorified desktop but it served its purpose. It was the only Server on the domain in a single domain/single site scenario. I now have had a second 2003 server built And I have it added into the domain. I setup all the same functions DNS Server, Domain Controller - Active Directory, File server and print server.

With Server 1 turned off and Server 2's IP changed to the IP of Server 1 the clients are pulling DNS from the PC's in the domain do work fine I.E. log in fine authenticate have full control over the shares they should, have internet browing.

The problem is that Server 2 (only when Server 1 is turned off) is not able to populate all the active directory objects (I mean it shows the item but it is greyed out and gives some errors about a Global Catalog Server not being available). Why am I geting this if both PC's are setup as Active Directory domain controllers?

Please explain this and let me know what else I have to ensure to do before pulling off this original Windows 2003 server so far I have the following done -

Shares from Server 1 recreated on Server 2 - Check
Server 2 is now configured as the DNS Server and functioning just fine - Check
Server 2 has print ques recreated and everyone is printed to it just fine -check

A:Added ones Windows 2003 Server want to remove old 2003 server.

This sounds tricky alright. I did the MCSE exams on AD and Windows 2000 server etc, from what I can remember there is only one Global Catalog server in the network. So I assume that when you set up the first server it assumed this role for the network. BUT when you add the second server this finds that there is already a Global Catalog server and does not assume this role itself.

"The first domain controller in a forest is automatically created as a global catalog server. Thereafter, you can designate other domain controllers to be global catalog servers if they are needed."

I would try to promote your 2nd server to a Global Catlog server and see if this resolves the issues.

My Aspire One 725-0687 with Windows 8.1 was stuck in an infinite "update failed to install...removing updates...do not turn off computer" loop for 48 hours before I turned off the computer in utter disgust with Windows. I tried everything in the blue screen troubleshooting window: refresh, restore, diagnose and repair, etc. I encountered an "error resfreshing," "error restoring," error repairing," and nothing was working to get me back into Windows. I tried rebooting in Safe Mode and even that would not work. Now the computer says "performing automatic repair" when rebooting and that's the current infinite loop. I have no external recovery media to boot from to reinstall the OS on what appears to be a now reformatted, blank drive. I tried to access the hidden recovery partition but that also won't work because there is no D2D option in BIOS. Please do not advise me to try Alt-F10 and all the other hot key configurations because none of those work either. I read on another website that the only thing I can do is to download the Acer eRecovery Management software and use that to restore from the hidden partition; however, that software does not appear available, at least not for free. I refuse to pay for something I did not cause!  That's just plain wrong! Any advice out there?? Thanks in advance.

I was wondering if it's possible configure a Windows 2019 IIS v10 hosted Web Server to perform OCSP checking of client certificates that are used to authenticate?

It is my understanding that typically the Responder URL that the Web Server contacts in order to validate the client cert is extracted from the AIA attribute in the client certificate. But is it possible to override/supplement this with an additional Responder?

For instance, what if I set up an OCSP Responder in the same domain as the Web Server and associated its revocation configuration with the SUB CA binded to the IIS Site. Now if client certs come in for authentication  and have an unrelated OCSP Responder
in their AIA, can I somehow tell the Web Server to check also the aforementioned Responder that has been stood up in the domain?

A:OCSP Based Validation for Client Certificates Using Responder Defined by Web Server

Per a reply from Mark B. Cooper at PKI Solutions this is indeed possible. You must edit the following GPO in order to override the default behaviour of the web server which is to only check the Responder URL specified in the client certificates' AIA extension.
Default Domain Policy > Computer Configuration >  Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > expand Public Key Policies
Once a custom Responder is specified in the CA / SUB CA's revocation properties the above GPO will allow it to check that custom Responder URL first, then ocsp as defined in the AIA extension and then CRLs
Thanks Mark!

Here's the situation...Every week I ghost copies of our servers. Two Windows 2000 servers and two Windows 2003 servers. Each server has one Western Digital 80GB ide hard drive in a hard drive rack and there is one open rack for inserting the backup hard drives.

I use ghost 2003 on floppies, each is configured to run the ghost backup automatically. When I am ready to ghost, I insert the backup drive, insert the floppy disk and start the server. Ghost loads, backups the drive, and says ghosting is complete. I take the main drive out and replace it with the ghosted copy. The ghost copies for 2000 and 2003 boot up fine, no problems.


When I remove the Ghost copies and reinsert the main drives, the 2003 servers will not boot, but the 2000 servers do. This doesn't happen every week, and sometimes one 2003 server will work and the other won't. When they don't work, the servers post but for some reason don't see the hard drive (this is not the ghost copy). On one of the 2003 servers, I have figured out the problem. When the server won't read the hard drive, I would pull out the drive and reinsert it, fixing the problem.

Recenctly, the other 2003 server wouldn't boot the main drive after it was ghosted. I thought maybe the hard drive bay was bad, so I switched the hard drive out with a spare bay. Reinserted it in the rack and the server still couldn't find the hard drive during boot. If I stick the ghost copy back in... Read more

Well since this is a web/email server I put it here if you think it should go elsewhere let it be moved.

Last night our server IIS service started jumping up and down on our server in all of the hubbub that ensued this service shutting down started turning off other Exchange services on the server as well.

We got it all back up and running by making note of all the services (some which would not restart due to a bunch of errors about executible not being linked to a working service), stopping all the exchange and IIS services, backing up the information store, ripping out IIS in the Add/Remove programs windows components, reboot, reinstall IIS ad components, Reinstall Exchange over the top, Reapplying the service pack and lastly resetting the information store. All was good as far as email use ending and recieving internally and externally works like a champ.

The problem is while OWA was working for us before this tragedy It no longer is working at all. I can go to http:/server and get to the default website so I know parts of IIS is working but when I add in the /Exchange I get a unspecified Error in the top right of the page and when I check the log of the C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 I get a 401 error thats not displaying on my broswer.

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

Emergency Management Services is a new feature in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that supports remote management and system recovery for servers that are not accessible through a conventional connection. By using Emergency Management Services with other software and hardware components, you can remotely perform tasks such as recovering unresponsive servers and powering servers off and on, even when they are not accessible through a standard network connection. Emergency management services also supports headless servers—those without a local keyboard, monitor, or mouse. This document provides an overview of Emergency Management Services and its components. It explains how to choose and configure hardware and software that supports Emergency Management Services. It provides guidance for enabling Emergency Management Services, and information about using this technology to troubleshoot problems with remote servers.
System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003

Only servers running a Windows Server 2003 operating system can be monitored using Emergency Management Services. For additional hardware and software requirements, please consult the chapter.

[size="5"]Hey there folks this is what had happened yesterday. I have a user on a Fat Client at our shop he got the 2010 Anti-Virus. I was able to take it out by running the Kill.exe and then Malware bytes. There was no need for the Combo Fix, but here's the thing. After the Virus was gone I ran a full check on our computer and everything came back good. So as soon as I went into Excel or any other exe. file it would not allow me to run anything: It would prompt me to choose from a file on the list like notepad, media player.......so on and so on. I looked up some information on it, and what I kept seeing was that the virus or the program that I ran messed up the registery some how. I guess what I need to know is, is this something that can be set back up manually or is a program need to be ran and if a program neeeds to be ran how can I when it won't allow anything to run? Also when this happens is it that same thing in regedit that gets messed up everytime because I've seen this happen 3 times now? Thanks.

A:Had a 2010 Virus wiped and wiped it out, now I'm unable to use any .exe files.

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?

Can anyone help me with setting up this network layout with my Pix Firewall.
Network Layout : Pix > DMZ > ISA Server 2004 > Exchange Server 2003 + Users.

Pix outside IP Address :
Pix inside IP Address :
DMZ IP Addresss :
ISA Server outside IP :
ISA Server inside IP :

I've identified the interfaces IP Address and named all plus the following config:

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 1 0 0

nat (dmz) 1 0 0

conduit permit icmp any any

route outside 1

I can now access the internet from my ISA Server in the DMZ zone.
I am intending to put the ISA Server out on the DMZ to access the outside world with

static (dmz,outside) netmask 0 0

and then open all traffic to ISA with

access-list acl_out permit ip any host any
access-group acl_out in interface outside

then I’ll give ISA server access to the inside network with

access-list acl_dmz permit tcp eq 25
access-group acl_dmz in interface dmz

With the above commands, the first access-list acl_out was not accepted by pix plus the second access-list acl_dmz so if you could please share some light upon my configurations.

access-list dmz permit ip host any << *Read note 1

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.
