Can I upgrade win2k advance server to windows server 2003 std?

Q: Can I upgrade win2k advance server to windows server 2003 std?

hi guys!
I just installed Windows 2000 Advance Server recently to a Compaq Proliant ML530 server and found out that the license for this server is more expensive than Windows Server 2003 Standard. The SmartStart CD of the compaq does not support windows server 2003 and I don't want to manually re-configure everything and start all over again. Does Win2K A.S. support Windows Server 2003 upgrade?

Preferred Solution: Can I upgrade win2k advance server to windows server 2003 std?

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.)

We upgraded our File Server Domain Controller from Windows 2000 Server to Server 2003.
Share access used to be really quick.
Now there are a couple of seconds between access to shares.
If you are moving a few levels throughout shares, this becomes problematic.
Does anyone know of any documents that explain the exact process the OS goes through to access a share?
Could it be the new security settings that Windows 2003 employs add a few seconds of overhead to accessing that share?

Hi everyone, I have spent the entire day troubleshooting this issue and think I have narrowed it down to there possibly being an issue with Win2k, Samba, and passwords.

I upgraded our windows NT DCs to Win2k today and everything seems to be working okay so far, except that no user's home directories are getting mapped. The home directories sit on a Linux box running Samba. We never had any issues with NT or even Win2k professional clients, but as soon as we went with Win2k DCs, problems!!

When you try to map to the Samba server, you get an error stating that it is an invalid username or password and then the "connect as" box pops up for you to enter a user name and password to connect to the share.

What do we need to do to get this resolved, all of your help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!

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.

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.

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.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...03/all/techref/en-us/W2K3TR_Ad_dctrl_over.asp
"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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello,
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.

We had:

We now want to have:

2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

From what I've read on this thread, you'll need to set computer-wide DCOM security permissions. You'll want to peruse that thread.

On another note, this isn't really the best spot for this question. An error message isn't a crash, hang or bsod, and the situation is more relevant to specifically the Windows Server section (even though OPC servers can and often do exist in many client versions of Windows). You'll be able to receive more help there, as it's pertinent to your needs.

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.

The Samba Sever is for file sharing. You did not state the OS on the new PC, but if it's truley a

You can google for Linix domain controller and find a flock of articles like this

I tried an IDE hard drive, which i had to plug into an IDE extension port through a PCI slot, and the motherboard is detecting it. Been trying to do it for weeks?!! has anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

i am just messing about experimenting on a few things at home and wondered if someone could give me some pointers on the folowing:
I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.
can anyone point me in the right direction or better tell me how to do it?
cheers

Hello all, I'm not sure if this is an operating system question or more of a software development question.

Anyway, I have a legacy COM service, a COM server that runs as a windows service, that was written for Windows NT 4.0. I have managed to use the service on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP unchanged. However, I now wish to run the service on a Windows Server 2003 machine and I can't seem to get it to work.

This is what happens:-
1. Install the service and set it to log on using a domain account.
2. Start the service from the services.msc applet.
3. Start the client application and connect to the service.
4. At this stagte the client applicaiton freezes for approximately 60 seconds and then returns with the error message "Server execution failed".

I've also tried using the client whilst the service is stopped. In this case when I connect the service is started but I get the same error.

The development team also provided a standalone application that hosts the exact same COM objects, mainly for debugging purposes. If I use the standalone application everything works fine.

Its all very strange.

Does anyone have any idea what the cause might be? And preferably a solution.

Thanks,
Kep.
 

A:DCOM service on Windows Server 2003 - "Server execution failed" when connecting

I found the answer.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/newsgroup...-DC48AB0DA5C9&dglist=&ptlist=&exp=&sloc=en-us

The above discussion says that a service must enter a running state before a COM server calls CoRergisterClassObject. So I guess its a development problem.

Not sure why it only manifests on Windows Server 2003 though.

I am trying to setup my own VPN, I have installed Server 2003 on my server machine. The server machine is connected to my Netgear router which connects to the internet.

I have setup the VPN service and can connect localy using an advanced connection setup in windows XP on my client machine.

Also on my network is a fileserver running windows vista(soon xp or server) the server has over 500gb of storage mostly full t hat i want to share over my VPN. This is also onnected to the netgear router.

My problem is with sharing these files. How do i set the drives on my file server as standard shares for all VPN connected users? I can access them local over the lan but not sure how to share for users dialing into the VPN?

any step by step tutorials links would be welcomed or if anyone can help me it would be brilliant or if somone can get on msn with me and walk me through what im doing wrong that would be awsome too. Thanks alot

Information for how to configure a Windows2003 VPN server can be found at:
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/w3k_vpn_server.htm

You don't need to make any changes or additions to shares in regards to VPN client's being able to access previous shares on the server. Whatever you have assigned for the LAN access can work for VPN.

Hello,

I have a strange problem.

I configured a new VPN Server on Windows 2003 (Usual configuration).

There are 3 clients. Win 2000 Prof, Win 2003, Win XP. While Win 2000 Prof can make a VPN connection to the server, others cannot. They all give error 800.

All the clients can ping the public IP of the problem-VPN server.

All these clients can connect to another VPN server on Win 2003 without any problems!! Hence, I feel some thing is not good with the VPN server.

Please advise

Thanks.

Hi,
I'm facing problem getting Wingate 4.4.2 work on Windows 2000 Advance Server.
After installing the Wingate Server, with it's default settings, it simply doesn't work. When I try to access a website (from Wingate PC), I could see under <Activity> tab of gatekeeper my Server name and an unknown guest trying to do DNS lookup. It simply doesn't seems to go further than that. Even if a client try to access a website, <Activity> window displays name of client computer and URL it is trying to do DNS lookup, but no more progress. I am not using NAT on Wingate, ENS is installed. Do I need to configure anything else to make WinGate Server work under Windows 2000 Advance Server?

By-the-way my Server congiguration is as follows:
(1) Windows 2000 Advance Server ver. 5.0.2195 build 2195
(2) 256 MB SDRAM
(3) 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium 4 on Intel 845 Motherboard
(4) No DNS server, No DHCP server, No NAT configuration.
(5) Dialup connection to Internet.
(6) Windows 2000 Advance Server is hosting a Domain.
(7) All clients are Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2.0
(8) Clients do not use domain, there is only a peer-to-peer network established.
(9) Clients are configured to obtain IP automatically. Earlier I used Windows ICS to share dialup Internet connection. Network is working fine, I can ping server from all clients.

Your kind help will highly be appreciated.

regards,
Basanta Prakash Tandukar
 

A:Wingate 4.4.2 doesn't work in Windows 2000 Advance Server

Is Wingate just a proxy server or is it acting as a firewall as well? I would suspect that the server itself needs to have a DNS server listed for name resolution. Can the clients get to a web site with just it's IP address?

Hi,

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.

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 : 65.77.78.47 255.255.255.0
Pix inside IP Address : 172.17.0.1 255.255.0.0
DMZ IP Addresss : 172.18.0.3 255.255.0.0
ISA Server outside IP : 172.18.0.2 255.255.0.0
ISA Server inside IP : 172.18.0.1 255.255.0.0

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

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0

nat (dmz) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0

conduit permit icmp any any

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 65.77.78.1 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) 172.18.0.2 65.77.78.47 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

and then open all traffic to ISA with

access-list acl_out permit ip any host 65.77.78.47 255.255.255.255 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 172.18.0.1 255.255.0.0 172.17.0.2 255.255.0.0 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.
