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.)

One of my client's Active Directory server (Windows 2003 Server) went down when we installed Service Pack 2. We were able to remove the service pack and get it running again, but until then the client was without any Internet connectivity, due to their DHCP running on the Windows AD. It was a six hour nightmare.

Can a Windows Active Directory do its job without running its own DHCP service? We would like to unload the DHCP from the Windows box to a Linux box or even to the WatchGuard router, but I am not sure how well the Windows server would take this hit to its functionality (or ego ).

Thanks for any insights into this issue.

I finally managed the upgrade, but not without a few bumps that I'll show you how to avoid.There are enough good things about SP2 to make the upgrade hoops worth jumping through. SP2's strength is behind the scenes: more protection against Internet thugs.

But the browser's new pop-up blocker is too little and way too late.

If you setup the additional Domain Controller as a Replication Partner it will take control if the primary Domain Controller fails, so the clients don't have to do any thing.

I have a Win2000 server, main DC for 80 users with Active Directory. We don't use Exchange and I wanted to remove it. Tried uninstalling but that messed up our IIS webpage, so I restored system state and all was fine.
Then I followed Microsoft directions for manually removing Exchange. Still messed up IIS webpage (said it's under construction) even though IIS was reinstalled. At the same time it messed up Active Directory even though system state was restored to earlier good state, and all I can figure is it happened because the Exchange object was deleted from AD.
Now my 2nd Win 2000 DC won't recognize or see anything on the entire network but itself, although it can be accessed across the network and does replicate AD from the other server. It doesn't show the other 2 domains on NT servers except when I was rebooting the main 2000 DC.
My users can't access some of their folders on the main server (this server is a key file server for active work) so I have given some of them logons on one of the other domains, but it's an old domain I am phasing out and so still they can't access everything they need from one logon.
Trust relationships are OK. DNS is OK. AD replicates to the other server. Creating new logons on AD doesn't help - they are as messed up as the old ones. No DHCP. No Internet connection, no connection to anything outside, no wireless access to the network - it is totally self-contained and internal.

Seemingly huge problem seeking a possibly easy solution.

Ok. Background is our network runs on MS Small Business Server 2000. Users and computers were set up on Active Directory running a domain. A few weeks ago our server got hit with a virus that caused us to do a full reinstall. Active Directory was rebuilt from the ground up. Easy part was adding all the users again. Problem now is that none of the computers are registering on Active Directory.

Easy fix was to unjoin the domain and rejoin it. Solution works, but problem is that it creates a new user profile instead of using the one that was in there already. Tried to switch names (rename the new user profile to something else, rename the old user profile to the new one) but every time I logged in afterwards it created another new profile. Also tried to add the computer name to Active Directory, but that did no good either.

Anybody else have a better idea? I'd rather not unjoin and rejoin every single workstation and also migrate every single user profile on every single workstation to the new profile.
 

A:Active Directory

Sorry dude. You have to to rejoin all computers to the domain. There's no way around that. In the future, you can copy everyone's profiles to the server and when you recreate their user account, just set their profile to Roaming so their old profiles propagate down to their computers. Then you can set it back to local if you like. The reason why their old profiles won't work is because the security identifyers are different. Every user has one. Even if you reinstall Active Directory with the same configuration as before, it won't matter.

If you go into your profiles tab on one of the computers, it will most like say "Account Unknown."

You should be able to, W2k looks for AD by default, if you cannot see it, run dcpromo from a command prompt and follow the clicks, when you installed W2k server, did you enable AD or install as a 'standard' (i.e. NT4) server ??.
If you're running AD, you need to enable GPO and enforce policies to get the most from it.

A:MMC and Active Directory

When trying to access a server, you can only use the default domain admin account. You cannot use any other account to log onto the server itself. If you would like to administer active directory through your workstation, simply install the administrative tools from the Windows 2000 Server CD on your workstation. The admin tools are located in the Support Folder, Tools Folder. Once you install those, you will have to right click the task bar and click properties. Click on the advance tab and put a check box next to Display Administrative Tools. Remember also, in order to administer Active Directory through your workstation, you need add your domain user account to the Domain Admins group on the server itself. To access the active directory tools, you can then just simply click start, programs and then administrative tools. YOU CANT USE LOCAL ADMIN ACCOUNTS TO ACCESS ACTIVE DIRECTORY.

I am looking to make an active directory server on my windows XP Pro machine. I gather this wouldn't be included in XP but does anyone have any ideas on this?

I know this may sound stupid but I want to put it on there for educational purposes.

We will be upgrading our Server to Win2k and implementing Active Directory and was wondering what effect Active Directory will have on Data Recovery - Are there any issues with this, any differences we should know about.

Also when we upgrade the PDC to Win2k DC, it is a must that we install or configure Active Directory at the same time?

Thanks for all your help

You do not have to install AD when upgrading, it can be installed later. One thing to keep in mind is to install DNS on the DC during the upgrade or prior to installing AD as dynamic DNS is required for AD to work. It does not have to support anything but AD. As for Data recovery, my understanding is that there is a AD plugin for Backup Exec (if that is what you are using, probably one for each backup system) that you need to backup AD. It is structurally similar to SQL server and needs the plugin to deal with the AD db being open during backups.

If I am wrong, please correct me!
