Server 2003 IIS Issue

Q: Server 2003 IIS Issue

Im not sure if I started this thread in the correct location so if it needs to be moved please do so.

My server at the house has Windows 2003 server, I have IIS installed and have one of my web pages hosted behind my Linksys wireless router/firewall. My server has a fixed IP address and the router has the IP address open with port 80. I do not have a static IP address. However, Dynsite and Zone Edit take care of that and the web site works fine. Now the issue, I have a total of four web sites to host, IIS gives me an IP address error when I try to start one of the other web sites.
It has to be something silly im missing.

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.)

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.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

I just have a quick question, I have setup a VPN using RRAS and L2TP shared secret, etc. From the client computer it connects no problem, and I can access shared resources on the LAN like it's supposed to work. The only problem is when I connect to the VPN, my browser doesn't work, can't get external internet to work and copying files from outlook 2007 to a shared resource seems to lock outlook up.

I'm not sure if this has something to do with sending all traffic over vpn or not. Is there any steps I can take to quickly resolve this issue? This seems to be the only thing affecting the users at the office.

Thanks,
 

A:Server 2003 VPN Issue

Is the VPN setup as a separate subnet example: if host 192.168.1.100 client 192.168.0.100.

Also depending on ISP and other possible settings you may need to use other DNS servers .

If so on the client try OpenDNS https://www.opendns.com/homenetwork/start/

Do this on the Client not on Server. Reboot let us know!

Hi,

I am experiencing bandwidth issues with Windows Server 2003.
AFAIK, they could be related to some inadequate tcp/ip settings.

So I analysed the packets coming from this server and I noticed that they keep changing size. About 70% are of the advertised MTU and the rest are ~150 bytes less. I also noticed that the client always sends an ACK after receiving one of these smaller packets.

With PMTUDiscovery enabled I get :
- 70% 1420-bytes packets
- 30% 1256-bytes packets

Without PMTUDiscovery, I get :
- 70% 536-bytes packets
- 30% 344-bytes packets

I have analysed many other connections on different servers, with different protocols and on different OSes but my server seems to be the only one with this strange behaviour.

On a side note, this issue shows up after a fresh Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition setup. I was also able to reproduce it on a second box on the same network. Although the hardware was the same and one could think it is hardware-related, I have added a different NIC to the second box and it didn't change the odd behaviour.

Does anyone know if this behaviour is ok or not ? What should I do about it ?

Thanks.

Hi all,

not sure if this is the right place for this threadf, but I couldnt find a server 2003 area anywhere.

I have a server 2003 system displaying the following error:-

"lsass.exe-System Error: Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start. Error Status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, check the event log for more detailed information."
Microsofts answer is :- (ie: call and well charge you)
To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the hotfix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;[LN];CNTACTMS
I can log in under Directory Services Restore Mode (like safe mode) and run sasser checks etc, but no virus indicated.

I can format if need be, but as this is configured with Active Dircetory and a stack of roaming profiles, I'd rather not.

Hope someone can suggest further things for me to try,

Thanks,

We have just installed a new network server running Windows Server 2003 Small Business. We have encountered a strange issue. The system is RAID and we have set-up the storage drives so that part our data goes to two differant sections of the array(i.e. storage 1 and storage 2) inside divisions we have mapped folders to our workstations. When we try to save to folders in the storage 2 section we get a disk full error, but when we save to the storage 1 section there are no problems. We checked all the permissions and share properties. Also there are no errors using other programs, Photoshop CS or other image editing applications.

Any ideas. The problem seems confined to Photoshop 7.

I have just installed a new server 2003 machine, it is working with a linksys wrt54g router that provides internet access, during the setup i disabled the dhcp on the router as requested.

I could access the external internet with no problem on the server, then i ran the internet and exchange setup and gave it all the required setting now all i can access on any of my machines connected to the network is the internal sites, when i try and access any external sites it defaults back to the internal site.

A friend of mine is having an issue with his home network. I told him I would post the problem here to see if anyone might know the answer.
HOW, can my 2003 wins server think there is another server on the network IF that other machine is a Windows XP Pro machine WITHOUT the server service running?????

it keeps forcing an election and WINS is hosed on my network.... because the XP pro machine IS NOT a BDC, a Wins server (or a server period) or a DNS server....
 

A:WINS issue with XP and 2003 server

Is the XP Pro PC set to be a member of the DOMAIN along with an AD account for the computer? If it's not whenever the WINS server looses connection it will force the XP to become the master browser. You don't really need WINS on a Win2X server AD and DNS handles all name resolution and if it is set up correctly it works very well.

Hi all, my first time on this forum, so I'll try and post as much information as I can in the hope that someone can help me out.

I have a Windows 2003 server with 2 nics in.
NIC1 is connected to the office hub

NIC1 IP 192.168.1.100

NIC2 is connected to a Linksys RV042 load balancing Internet Router

NIC2 IP 192.168.1.102

Linksys RV042 router

LAN IP 192.168.1.1
WAN 1 IP (cable modem) 41.205.46.171
WAN2 IP (ADSL modem) currently disconnected

All workstations have static IP addresses in the 192.168.1.* range with 255.255.255.0 s/net and 192.168.1.100 default gateway

My problem is that we appear to have some kind of routing issue in that often the internet doesn't work on the workstations, although it will remain working on the server.
Also certain PCs resolve the name of the server to the 192.168.1.102 IP address when you try and ping the server by name - the pings are not returned.

Within the routing and remote access section of the server there are a couple of routes defined under network interfaces, general, IGMP and NAT.
These routes are either entitled router or hub, the router ones use the .102 address with a gateway of 192.168.1.1 and the hub ones use the .100 address with a 1.1 gateway.

I am Running Windows 2003 SP2 with AVG Business Edition Anti-Virus, and have managed somehow to pick up some malware that is causing all browsers to not connect to the intended sites. (Seems to be a redirect virus?) For example, I cannot connect to windowsupdate.microsoft.com to patch my system, when I sneaker-net'd in SpyBot, it won't update, etc., etc. It's even gone so far as to block me from downloading an update to What's Up Gold! (a NMS product I run)

I have run HiJack This, gmer, mbam, otl, root kit revealer, root repeal, spybot, tdsskiller, and gone through my registry with a fine tooth comb, but cannot seem to fix the redirect issue. I would appreciate some assistance if available as I am stuck in a corner now and my next step is to spend many days re-installing the OS and restoring databases from incremental backups. I would much prefer to clean the system if possible.

I can provide any logs you need from gmer or otl or whatever, but combofix won't run on 2003, neither will dds.scr, so just let me know what format you want them in (as it looks like most people fill up pages and pages of forums with posting their logs, and this seems so inefficient to me.)

Hello,
 
As per the subject, I'm having a problem with EMET 5.2 on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 x86.  Specifically, whilst EMET appears to install successfully, and its processes are running, no applications that I've set up for EMET protection have a green tick
next to their name in the "Running EMET" column in the EMET GUI.

I've tried a wide variety of things - un-installing all other AV and security software, disabling everything except core MS services on boot via MSCONFIG, trying older 4.x versions of EMET, ensuring all possible available Windows Updates are installed, trying
different options for DEP and the other core mitigations, and so on and so forth - but no matter what I do, whilst EMET runs, it doesn't seem to actually be doing anything.  Any changes I make to the rules, and the startup of the EMET service, are all
recorded in the Application Event Log, but no actual process protection seems to be happening as far as I can see.


Has anyone else encountered a problem like this, or have any suggestions on how to proceed ?  I realise of course that Server 2003 is a completely un-supported EOL operating system at this point, but that was the main reason I wanted to get EMET running
on this particular server, to provide it with at least a modicum of protection for however long it has to stay on line.  Any input, suggestions or ideas would be very welcome.


Thank you,
Kevin Drysdale.

I have a Windows 2003 Standard Server working as the new print server in my NT4 domain. It has dual Xeon 2.8 GHz, 1 GB ram, 3 ea Intel Server adapters in a load balancing team. It is running Symantec Corp. Anti-virus ver 8.0, and is current with MS updates.

I have 26 printer ports set up on it, including Canon, HP, Lexmark, and Ricoh. All are using TCP/IP as the printing protocol. All have the latest drivers, and flat shares for other Windows clients are also installed.

Several times a day (no pattern to when), the printers seem to freeze up. Print jobs still come into the server’s spooler, but they stop printing to the printer itself. The services are not stopped, but if I stop and restart the Print Spooler service and dependant services (Canon NetSpot Suite Service and TCP/IP Print Server), printing resumes as normal.

I have tried recreating the ports, reinstalling the drivers on the server, flashing the firmware on the printers, reinstalling the printers on the workstations, cold booting the printers, excluding the C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool folder from any anti-virus scans, etc.

This is confusing. I've set up numerous computers on our domain before so I'm pretty well acquainted with the procedure.

So we upgraded a computer in our domain from XP to 8 so my manager could see if our software would work in 8. That much I got done just fine (put simply, it does).

The problem I'm having is that when I try to attach the computer to the domain, two things go wrong: first of all the network drives don't map. Not a big deal, I heard this was an issue with Windows 8 and logon scripts. I'd like to try to implement a Group Policy-based drive mapping system but Windows Server 2003 seems to be missing that capability (though supposedly that can be added back).

The other, more troubling issue is that when I restart the PC, it seems to lose any connection it had to the Active Directory Domain Controller. The first time you hook it onto the domain it's just fine (you can freely go in and out of the servers without providing new credentials) but if you restart it loses that. After a restart I can't log in except with credentials the PC already knows and trying to access the file shares on the servers prompts me for a password entry. I can rehook it into the domain by redoing the whole process from the start but then restarting it after that will just blank out the AD DC credentials again. Mapping the drives would be impossible if I can't maintain a connection to the Active Directory.

I pinged back the Windows 8 PC from the server side (which I logged into using Rem... Read more

I can't say for certain why it's forgetting the credentials and requires you to sign in each time, although that may be controlled by the Admin through the GPE.

As for the DNS problem, your problem may be different but I've seen similar complaints and apparently it helps to manually add the Domain's DNS servers to the IPv4 properties of the network adaptor you are trying to connect with.

Other connection problems with Server 03 can be solved by clicking on the link. This may help with the drive mapping problem.

This post was intended to be a reply to "Hard drive nearly full for no apparent reason" but has ended up as a separate thread.

I seem to have a similar issue. I've discovered that my Windows\Installer folder is over 29GB. Nearly all of the space is used by about 3000 .msp files that have nine distinct dates beginning 10/8/2008 and ending 12/9/2009. On 8 of the dates all the files are identical in size. One one of the dates there are files of two different sizes. 12/9 is around when I first noticed space problems on the drive and began working on it. Deleting logs, compressing unused files, has kept space available until now. Because the Installer folder is hidden I didn't notice it size until yesterday

There are no recent install failures in Windows update and I can't determine what app these files are associated with. The Summary tab for every one that I've checked shows only the keyword PatchSourceList. The machine is a server so it does not have Office installed. It is running Windows Server Update Services but those files are being stored on a separate drive.

I've run Malwarebytes and it found one item which I allowed it to delete. The log entry is: Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowMyDocs (Hijack.StartMenu) -> Bad: (0) Good: (1) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
I may be wrong but this appears unrelated.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Solved: Similar issue with Windows 2003 Server

Apparently I had acquired a large number of orphan installer files in the Installer folder that were being replicated as part of the installer cache any time a package was installed.

I downloaded Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 3 32-bit Support Tools
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...11-FD83-419D-939B-9A772EA2DF90&displaylang=en (which apparently will also run under XP) and ran the command "msizap g". This apparently compared each installer with the registry's list of installed packages and removed the orphans. The Installer folder is now 554 MB.

I did not figure out where the orphan files came from in the first place.

Hello all,

Workstation:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Pentium Dual Core
3GB RAM

Server:
Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64

It never had issues connecting with the share before now. Now every time I try to connect it to the share, it tells me that the password for the account is invalid. As the account for the workstation had no encrypted or protected files on the server, I just went and reset the password to make sure it hadnt gotten changed some how. This however did not fix the issue. The computer is able to access the internet and see that the server indeed exists on the network, but for what ever reason is not able to access the share any longer.

Any ideas?

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.

Hi

I'm guessing this is a network issue...it may not be.

We have several HP 4345 MFPs. They all have "scan to network folder" enabled. They were easy to set up and have been working fine.

In May we upgraded/migrated to Windows 2003 servers. All these MFPs were moved, settings changed, and again have been working fine.

This week...for some reason...none of them can scan to a network folder anymore. They are all still printing and emailing, but cannot "find" the network folder to send scans to.

I can ping the printer, the WINS server is set right. The printer uses a generic userid and when you sign on to a computer using that id, you can get to the shared folder used for scanned files. So, the access is good, permissions are right.

All these printers are getting the same error, even though the all scan to different folders on the same server. The server they scan to was rebooted on Sunday night...Monday was the first day none of them could access the shared folders any more. I cannot figure out what happened. Nothing else was changed, just a reboot.

Any ideas?
 

A:Possible Windows Server 2003 Issue with MFP Scan to folder function

hmmm... now that sounds familiar. I don't have the solution for you but I have the same problem with a canon imagerunner scanning to a 2003 server. Spent a couple of hours at it, very simple feature but the server wouldn't allow it. Had to scan to a computer based print server and setup scan to email for the time being.

Had there been any microsoft updates that came down from microsoft before the reboot of the server? Is this a 2003 server? sp1 or sp2? Firewall didn't come on did it?

At our office, we have a Windows 2003 File server (one of them), and Windows 7 workstations. The workstations can use Explorer fine to view all the folders on the share. But for whatever reason when you go to a command prompt and do a DIR on that share, it is missing about 60% of the folders.

Now, the iphone app that uses the vpn to view these shares too also does not show them. Does anyone have a idea what this could be and how to fix it?

This is really weird.

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.

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.

(FINALLY TO THE PROBLEM)

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.

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.

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.

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.
