Q: Solved: Can't install Server 2003, can't copy a file

I am installing Server 2003 on a freshly formatted partition of my server. At 71% of the "copying files" portion, setup hangs, and eventually says it cannot copy a file called "rsopsnps.chm". The CD I am using is the OS recovery disk provided by Gateway. I'd like to just skip the file and go on, but I can't figure out what it is. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

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.)

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).

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.

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 was tasked to create an answer file for an unattended install using SIM. In a virtual lab, i had the install.wim file on a server and put it on a share to push it through to the client machine. Just for the purpose of making it easy, we could apply full
control permissions in ntfs to the file to everyone and gave read write permissions to everyone in the share. By giving the path in SIM i could pull the file from the client station, but then was asked for credentials. Any idea why it is asking for credentials?

Hello,
I'm have an issuing when copying a file from a Windows 10 workstation to a FQDN Windows server 2003 resource.
The environment is as follows;

SERVER
Windows 2003 SP2 Server (x86) (Domain Controller)
FQDN = server1.company.local
IP Address = 192.168.10.10
NETBIOS NAME = server1
CLIENT
Windows 10 Pro workstation (x64)
The issue manifests in both a command line and windows file explorer environment.
Here is a command line example using robocopy (the issue also happens with copy/xcopy)
TEST1 (NETBIOS) robocopy c:\test \\server1\data\temp file.dat = file copies OK
TEST2 (IP ADRESS) robocopy c:\test \\192.168.10.10\data\temp file.dat = file copies OK
TEST3 (FQDN) robocopy c:\test \\server1.company.local\data\temp file.dat = file copy is very slow / unsuccessful
server1.company.local resolves to the correct ip of 192.168.10.10
This issue only manifests on the two Windows 10 systems we have in the business. We have 70+ WIndows 7 systems that do not present the issue.
The issue temporarily resolves when the effect Windows10 system is rebooted but the issue re-manifests hours/days later.

So one of my instructors directed me to that Microsoft Dreamspark thing they've got going where students get free tools to play around with, one of them Server 2003 (starting a journey towards a Comp Sci degree in the fall).

I download the thing like it says, I burn it to a CD like it says....but it won't run off the CD to install it. According to their FAQ's, I shouldn't *have* to use a separate program like ISO Buster or Alcohol in order to get it to start up (though it says mounting is an option)--and I don't want to. I'm going to be messing with it a lot and I don't want to load up a 3rd party app every time I want to do a reinstall.

I've tried renaming the file into an executable from an iso, but still no luck. How do I get this thing onto a disc so that it will extract and run automatically?
 

A:Can't get Server 2003 to install

You have to burn the ISO file as an Image, just copying the file onto a CD won't work.

The easiest way I know to do this is to download the free ISO Recorder utility from here :-
http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

Get the correct one for your OS (XP SP2 etc.) and install it then use it as shown in the tutorial :-
http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/HowTo.htm

The CD should boot now provided you have the CD before the hard drive in the Bios boot order.

Okay I was cursed with installing server 2003 on a custon built server running a Intel entry level server board SE7221BA1-E. I have the disks and have located the sata raid drivers and copied them to a floppy. When I run server 2003 install I press f6 then slect the floppy I copied the driver files too and i get this error message:

FILE\WINDOWS\MEGAIDE.SYS CAUSED AN UNEXPECTED ERROR (18) AT LINE 2187 IN D:\SRV03RTM\BASE\BOOT\SETUP\OEMDISK.C.

After doing some research I found that the bios software on this board is outdated so this may have something to do with the embedded raid controllers software. So I downloaded the new bios update. But the problem is that I have to extract the bios update files to bootable media run the bios setup utility. The bios update is too big to fit on a floppy and I tried making a bootable CD and putting the files on that but it did not work. So then I tried putting the files on a usb drive and booting to that but it says ntldr is missing. So do you think it's the bios or do you think something else is wrong.

Greetings! This may be really dumb and I feel foolish asking for help with this problem. I'm installing a printer on a Windows 2003 enterprise server. Using ADD PRINTER I get to the HAVE DISK point. I have a disk with the driver on it and the root directory contains the file AUTORUN.INF. When I use it windows ignores it. I can't figure out a workaround for this and have no idea why windows can't see the new driver. Any help is much appreciated.
 

A:can't install new printer on Server 2003

autorun.inf files do not contain any driver information. You either have to look for the proper .inf file somewhere deeper or run the setup program from the driver disk.

Also, it is always a good idea to download the latest driver from the internet instead of using the hopelessly dated drivers provided on CDs.

I have server 2003 running and I want to share some folders. When I try to access the shared folders from another computer I get an Access is denied message. I want it to ask me for a username and password instead of just telling me I do not have permission to use this network resource. Is this something I set up on the server machine or on another machine that is simply trying to access it? Or do I need to be on a domain to do this somehow? I'm hoping its just some checkbox that says "prompt user for password" but thats unlikely.

Anyways, a little more info may or may not be relevant. Server 2003 is acting like a router. have 2 nics, one to cable modem, one to a hub with my other computers on it. Using the internet connection sharing. I have 3 folders, public, private and incoming. I have 2 users, Troy and Users. Troy has read write and full control on all 3 folders. Users has read on public. Has read, write, full control on incoming. And no access to private. If i add 'everyone' to a folder and set permissions to read, i can access the files.

I just installed thismorning and I dont know a whole lot about 2003. I'm trying 2003 so I can allow more than 10 connections.

Thats probably more than you needed, but anyways, any help is appreciated.
 

A:Server 2003 File sharing

On the Windows2003 server, you need to create the same user accounts and passwords that are being used on the Workstations. Then make sure those users have acess to whatever directories are being shared.

As far as the number of concurrent computer connections, that would be determined by the licenses when you first installed it.

Hi, From what I found, looks like this error is caused by either a bad CD disk, a smudge or mark on the CD, or bad RAM chips.

Advice: Rinse the CD with warm plain water and pat dry, try again.

Try a different CD drive.

Copy the i386 folder to hard drive and install that way.

Change RAM.

Your XP CD might work in other computers---I read that at many of the results searching in Google. Seems to be a problem with the hard drive, too. Did you delete all partitions? You might have to wipe the drive with a utility> I use KillDisk, here:

I have a Windows XP user who can open PDF files on our secondary file server (e.g. \\serverB\shares\marketing\file.pdf) but not from the main server (\\serverA\shares\marketing\file.pdf). Same with copying PDF files. He can
copy them to his desktop. from server B but not from server A. Server A is the one assigned to him because server B is being pre-seeded for DFS and is in a different office anyway.

The problem is only with PDF files. He can open and copy any other files. And it's only on his Windows XP machine. His Windows 7 machine works just fine (he can copy and open PDF files from server A).

The two servers (Windows 2016) are set up identically as far as NTFS permissions. The only difference is that server A is set up in DFS while server B is being pre-seeded before being added to DFS.

DFS namespace type is: domain (Windows Server 2008 mode).

The XP machine had no problem under server A when the DFS namespace type was Server 2000 mode, but I'm not sure that would cause the problem.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this particular question, but it's technically an installation problem. If it's in the wrong forum, I apologize.

I've just recently started a Computer Information Technology program at a university, and I'm in my first class, which is an intro class which is online as a summer class. My teacher does not have a text book for us, and he says it's a "research class" where we have to figure out everything on our own. All in all, he's not offered me anything at all that would help me figure out how to install Server 2003 on a virtual PC, and I'm not the only student having problems with trying to do this with zero instructions (for what it's worth, I'm in another class in the program which is nothing like this complete lack of instruction).

I ultimately have to make a video showing that I have the programs loaded (Virtual PC-done, MySQL-done, Server 2003-problems all week long), running, and then explain them, but I just can't get Server 2003 to work at all on my Windows 7 machine. I think I could probably get Server 2008 to work, but the university only uses 2003, hence my problem.

Basically, I downloaded the Virtual PC and Windows XP bundle off of Microsoft's site and installed those. I have created a virtual PC, and it's running XP SP3. Now, if I try to install Server 2003 on the virtual PC, it gives me various errors according to which installer I try to use:

WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-... Read more

A:Cannot install Server 2003 SP2 on a virtual PC running XP SP3.

You need to install Server 2003 in its own VM, not in a VM that already has XP in it. There are many ways to install an OS into Virtual PC - I suggest googling for instructions. We can't exactly tell you how, since it's a research project you have to complete.

Think of it this way - if you have a brand new computer with a brand new hard drive, would you install Windows 7 on it and then try to install Server 2003 inside of Windows 7? No, you would install Server 2003 on the brand new hard drive.

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.

A:Install Windows 2003 Server over Vista

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.

Strange problem, involving a DOS (command) prompt: We run a legacy clipper database on our 2003 web server, with no problems. I just added a new user, setting her up as an administor (using the wizard). If I log on as that user and open a command prompt, I can see the directory and file I want on the server... "dir xxx.dbf" shows the correct file. But, I cannot open that file! The clipper database can't open it, and I can't open it using dbase and a "use" command. If I log back on the same computer as another user, it all works just fine.

Any ideas as to why I can see a file, but can't open it??!!
 

A:DOS file access on 2003 Server network?

Sounds like the new user doesn't have access rights to the file. Perhaps she only has read access?

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?

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?

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

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.

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.

This must be kind of common as I see a lot on this issue, but unfortunately not much on a fix.
Anyways I'm on a path to MCSA so I need to do labs on Server 2003 from time to time. I use virtual PC 2007 to make virtual machines of XP Clients and an Enterprise Server 2003. Anyways I can't attach clients to the domain, it gives a message that the server can't perform the requested operation for whatever reason. When setting up the domain controller I get this:

Diagnostic Failed
The registration diagnostic has been run 2 times.

Warning: Domain Controller functions like joining a domain, logging onto a domain, and Active Directory replication will not be available until the DNS infrastructure for Active Directory is correctly configured.

The DNS zone authoritative for the domain Nirom.local cannot be updated because it is the DNS root zone. Domain controllers will not send dynamic updates to the DNS root zone. If you want to use this domain name, select 'Install and configure the DNS server on this computer' below and create a delegation for the new DNS zone Nirom.local from the root zone to this DNS server.

For more information, including steps to correct this problem, see Help.

Details
The primary DNS server tested was: a.root-servers.net (198.41.0.4)

The zone was: . (root)

Domain controllers will not send dynamic updates to the DNS root zone.

Okay well since I haven't studied the DNS part that much yet how do I do that?... Read more

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.

Hello all,

I have a LAN with four Windows XP Pro clients connected to one Windows Server 2003 machine.

I want to access the files in the server when I go abroad. How can I do that ? I've already given all the clients and the server a static IP.

Another question, are there any security threats that I must be aware of when I connect to the server remotely? I don't want to lose all my data!

Please help. Thank you.

We've found (on some customers) a new wave of attacks over non-protected or up to date Microsoft Server 2003 (even there is no kind of support nowadays for it)
 
We think this attack and encryption has some similar actions as in 2014 appeared to be spreading but ...
 
Ok, the information:
 
Two Servers, both with Microsoft Server 2003 and remote access not secured (weak password)
 
First Server lost all data and after the attack only appears a big file named BACKUP (> 10GB) and the text (russian pirate) asking for 3000€ to recover the data sending an email to a 'mail.ru' address with the IP as reference (curious)
 
Second Server that performs the data backup over a NAS lost all data from it and also the NAS (which was linked to), appearing TWO big files named BACKUP-1 and BACKUP-2 also, theorically, encrypted
 
Seems they made somekind of encrypted wallet (as old time before) and put all the data inside, just moving it (so, no way to look for deleted data)
 
We can not send more info at the moment, we only have the big files and nothing more, a plain text with short instructions to do.
 
Any idea? We think this new wave of attacks respond to an old vulnerability not covered or repaired, so now the dammage is done and we would like to know if there is some kind of hope for these customers or the new ones that soon will appear.
 
Thanks for reading.

Our church has a file server (Dell 2900) running Server 2003 + SP2. It's job is to share files with the staff at the church on approx. 20 PCs & Macs. All was working OK till last week when suddenly no one could get on the shared files. when they tried to check the shares on there MY Computer, they were told that they didn't have permission or that the share did not exist. I could see the shares locally, but could not see or connect over the network.

I ran our symantec 10 and our malware bytes with reports that all was well.

I backed up the data to an ext HDD and reformated the C partiotion of the drive. The data resides on the D partition which I did not touch. It worked for a short while and then had the same failure.

Just some notes: When I turned off the share on the server, it informed that there was one user connected even though I knew no one was connected.

I installed the paid portion of malware bytes and saw several blocked malicious attempts to unknown IP addresses.

I further suspect a hidden spyware program because I looked in the log file of the router and saw connections and attempted connection between the servers IP and some unknown external IP addresses on a port around 24000.

What should I do next ?

Currently, I have XP Home installed on my Dimension 8400 with 160gb SATA hard drive.  I wanted to upgrade to Windows 2003 Server.  I was going to do a fresh install.  The setup for 2003 said it cannot see any hard disks.  I assume this has something to do with the SATA hard drive...  I need to know how to get the setup to see my hard drive.  Server 2003 didn't work, so I put the XP Pro cd I have in to see if it could see the hard drive, and same result. 
 
What can I do to get the setup to see my hard drive?  Is it a configuration in the Bios?  It is set to auto recognize the drive... 
 
Thanks in advance!

A:Windows Server 2003 install cannot see my SATA hard drive

You need the SATA drivers on a floppy.  Look in the downloads section for the drivers.  Windows setup asks if you need to add a SCSI driver.  When it asks, press F6 with the driver floppy in.

My crysis Game installation is interrupted after inserting 2nd DVD.I'm not able to continue installation or copy file from 2nd dvd.It is isnt write or read protected but unable to copy content
When i'm trying to do so,windows explorer is freezing,till dvd is ejected manually.
2nd DVD consists of an autorun ,setup,and a data(cab) file.
I Have nero essentials but it copies entire data from disc in form of single file,which can only be burned into another DVD.
Can any one help me finding software in force extracting these files to PC folder,so that i can i continue installation from PC,I had already copied all content from DVD 1.Any help would be greatly appreciated....

A:Unable to install or copy file from second DVD.

Open a Elevated Command Prompt.
Put the DVD in.
As soon as Windows Explorer starts to open, close it immediately.
If that works, use xcopy to copy the content of the DVD to a folder on your harddrive.

If the DVD drive is D: for instance:

xcopy d:\* %userprofile%\Desktop\DVDFolder\ /s/h/r/i/k/e/y

This will copy everything from the DVD to a DVDFolder on your Desktop.
Once that completes, type

%userprofile%\Desktop\DVDFolder\setup

That should start the installation.

Hi,

In Excel 2003, I am coping a tab with it's data into another tab.

I have attached an xls file, Main Tab (contains a form, I removed unnecessary data) and Copy Tab has a button that would copy the main tab (using vba code) into another tab.

I noticed the checkboxes id gets reassigned to a different checkboxes ids.
ie. main tab - checkbox id 1199, and after coping it changes to a diff id.

How do I make the checkboxes ids stay the same?. In my vba code I use the default (main tab) checkboxes ids to checkmark right checkbox.

I hope it makes sense what I am trying to accomplish.

Please advice,

Thank you
 

A:Solved: Excel 2003 copy tab Question

A workaround for this would be to rename the checkboxes in your code. In each of the copied sheets, they have been renamed to their defaults 'check box 3'
Code:
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Check Box 3").Name = "Check Box 1199"
HTH
