Windows 7 & 2003 Server Standard SP2 Unable to remotely install driver on print server

Q: Windows 7 & 2003 Server Standard SP2 Unable to remotely install driver on print server

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.

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

How do you enter the credentials on the Windows 7 machine? I've noticed that you have to use "domain\username" rather than just the username in some cases.

How do you install 64 bit print drivers on a 32 bit 2003 server

Hi,

We're rolling out Windows 7 64 Bit. We currently run 32 bit 2003 Server. I have been able to install about half of the 7 64 bit drivers, but am running into issues with others. The universal drivers do not work. We are running HP, Xerox and Dell printers. The error I am seeing is. 'The specified driver must be installed remotely from a x64 running Windows XP or Windows server 2003.' I cannot get it to work. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi. I am trying to troubleshoot a Windows 2003 print server as it it is showing heavy traffic and causing the server to slow down. I removed the color printers as I know that can cause somewhat of a problem. No go, I also made sure to reboot the PC, that did not work either. The PC is a Pentium 4 with tons of memory so it is a brand new PC. I also stopped and restarted the print spooler. Any suggestions?

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.

Hello,
I created the following performance counter using logman.exe.

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.

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.

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
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.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

2. Then I tried booting the system from the cd. It runs ok for a while and then throws an error message (blue screen, hope most of you might have seen that atleast once in your lifetime) comes up which has a very long text. Here it goes.

I may not be of much help since I am trying to do the same thing as you. I purchased an HP a64000z, slated to be a computer lab "mule". Came with Vista Basic. I knew better not to attempt to install over Vista directly.

Here are the issues to overcome:
First thing is to obtain the SATA drivers for the motherboard. This is needed for W2003S to be able to recognize the HDD. Vista has the driver, but it's no help when you install a new OS. I am looking for the drivers and will post back when I have some info.

Windows 2003S may have an issue installing SATA drivers if a floppy drive is not present (go figure!). So it might be prudent to install a loose floppy drive just in case before attempting anything.

The best solution might be to create an install CD containing the SATA drivers and update the .INF file to tell W2003S where to find them, but this is kinda involved and I'm trying to stay out of that one.

In any case, good luck and please let me know what you find out, I'll do the same.

I'm working on a friends laptop that currently has the Windows Server 2003 -Enterprise Edition operating system installed. The specs for the are as follows:

IBM Thinkpad
Pentium 3 700 mhz Processor
13 GB Hard Drive
256 MB RAM

I want to remove Windows Server 2003 and perform a clean install of Windows XP. When i try installing XP it doesn't allow me to proceed and the continue install button comes out blank. Moreover, for some reason it does not allow me to boot from the disk eventhough i changed the settings on the BIOS. Can anyone provide me with the steps on how to override Windows Server 2003 so that i may install XP.
 

A:Removing windows server 2003 and install XP

Once you set your BIOS to boot first from cd . . when it restarts you will see a black screen with a prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" . . do that and you will be able to delete partitions and recreate the ones you want and proceed to formating and installing XP

That message can pass quickly, so have a finger on the keyboard when you boot. This will delete all data on the drive so be sure you have your important data backed up.

Somebody please help me. A walkthrough would be great. This is my problem. I have a server at work, I am a computer engineer, however the problem is I have not had much experience with servers. My task is to install some software onto the server (Windows Server 2003) so that the software can then be accessed and run on each client computer (PC that is connected to the server)

Would anyone have any tips, or be able to walk me through doing this ?

Please help, and thanks.

Hi,

Not sure where to post this but seeing I'm using windows 10, Ill post it here.

I'm having a problem installing Windows Server 2003 on VirtualBox. It reports that there is no bootable medium found when I try to start it up.

Ive had experience in creating VM's before, I've currently got a whole virtual network going, and I need this server for my university project.

The iso file is correctly linked so I do not understand what the issue is.

If it helps, this is where I got the iso file from: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...ils.aspx?id=41

Thanks

Hello All,

Sure hope someone here can help. Sorry to all for such a long post

OK, just started this new job so, I cannot give all history and whatnot.
Anyway...

Site is currently running out of dbase space on their Exchange 5.5 servers, so of course in order to upgrade Exchange they need to have Active Directory. That's where I came in.

The hardware they gave me to use is a tad old.
HP NetServer LH3. The server had Citrix XP Presentation server on it and currently worked prior to my getting it (DOH!). It has Integrated HP NetRaid on it, to which WAS configured with a 4.2G SCSI drive at Raid-0 and two 9.1G at Raid-1

Well, of course I can't use the 4G drive, unless .....
So, got a hold of an 18.2G Drive.

Every time I try to install the Server OS, it goes through the text portion of the setup, reboots and then comes up with "Disk Read Error - press ctrl+blablawoofwoof"
Very similar to this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931761

Looking at the MS resolution there...The bios on this server is at the latest; however, there is not an option to disable the automatic disk translation feature as the resolution suggests (I don't have a CD Burner, or Win/BartPE to utilize the other resolutions).

Out of curiosity I attempted to install by formatting to Fat32... Then I get problems like this page http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314477

After editing (bootcfg /rebuild) the boot.ini file - The system boots up to the boot menu and I get... Read more

A:Oracle VirtualBox won't install Windows Server 2003

That is not a download for Server 2003 itself, just SP2 for Server 2003.

You can download a 180 day trial version of Server 2008 R2 here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/down....aspx?id=11093

That is 64 bit only.

Microsoft isn't going to provide a trial version for an OS that is beyond extended support.

Not familiar with that particular brand, but it sounds like you may need extra drivers for your Hard Drive. Have you gone to their website and looked into that?

I have a laptop running Vista ultimate. I want to create a dual boot with win2003 server so that I can install MOSS 2007 on it (studying for certification).

Tried using the disk management utility in Vista to create partition for this and it doesn't let me shrink a partition in order to create a new partition for Win 2003. There are 60gb available for this new partition but when I go to 'shrink' I get a zero for available mb

I know there are some issues regarding the loader. Any advice in how to do this successfully? I dont want to lose any data on the vista O/S part of the box.

Downloaded RC1 to install it on an IBM R40 (1GB RAM), which had previously held Windows Server 2003.

Select booting from optical drive through the Access IBM button and selecting the optical drive; DVD boot fails, and Server 2003 comes up again despite selecting boot from optical.

Erase the hard drive with EASUS, reformating to FAT32 (so I know it's wiped).

Booting again from the DVD with RC1 fails, with the code Sfh> onscreen.

How do I install RC1?
