Preferred Solution: Migrating Windows sharepoint services 3.0 to another server different domain

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 guys, I have a problem here which I'm having difficulty solving.

We have a domain hosted on another company's exchange server. We've got about 40 e-mail addresses for that domain. My boss wants to move some of those e-mail addresses over to Gmail using google apps, and leave the rest. He doesn't care if it's smart or practical to do so, it's what he wants.

Is it possible?

I have windows xp professional 2007 installed,
Sorry, not sure if I'm in the right forum for this.
I have had a working install of front page downloaded since Oct. Yesterday when I opened it to work in my website the password login box did not appear nor could I open my website.
An error box appeared saying my website was unaccessable & that it appears that windows sharepoint services are not installed.
I phoned addr.com who is my server for my website & they said all is working on their end & they donot support windows sharepoint services.
Alas we tried everything, even removing the program & reinstalling it.
Then when I tried going to the link previously provided with the key I bought for support about front page, they are gone, every link I clicked on in the email are dead links.
I'm at a loss for words, is there anyone that may be able to help?
Thank you so much ahead of time!!!

I'm currently using WinXP Home, and trying to install Vista Ultimate, but when I've started the installation it says:

You need to do this before proceeding with your installation:

*Close the installation, go to Program and uninstall the following program:

---- Windows SharePoint Services

The problem is I can't find it anywhere on my computer, I've tried both searching it and the net for information. I've even tried to download it from Microsoft.com just to be able to uninstall it. What I've realized is that it's a program used mainly by companies in the OS Windows Server 2003, and that it works closely with Office. I can't even download it because it needs Server 2003 to work.

But now I'm stuck, how can I uninstall something that I can't find? Can someone please shed some light over my problem?

So I've looked everywhere for an answer to this and it all comes up crickets.

I'm trying to uninstall the WSS Support from my installation of Office 2007 Pro, but no matter what I do it doesn't uninstall. Apparently only one other person in all of Google-land has experienced this, but I imagine it's a relatively uncommon use case. Anyway, I'm running XP SP3 in case it matters. The only thing I haven't tried is a complete uninstall/reinstall; it's too time-consuming to justify viz. my need to remove the component (it's for testing).

Please tell me someone at TSG knows what I'm talking about and has run into this before; I feel like a total novice at the moment.

Server: WSS 3.0

Clients: Win 7 Pro, IE9 & Office 2010

We are trying to edit excel documents containing macros thatare stored within a SharePoint document library.

We have 1 user who is required to update these documents. She clicks on the link on the document library,once the document is opened even though she has edit rights she is not promptedto edit the document and unable to save it.

She only gets the option to “save as” which then doesn’t saveover the existing document.

Are there any known issues with using Macro enableddocuments in Sharepoint 3.0 which prevent the clients running office 2010 toupdate these documents?

Is our requirement feasible on current software?

Is there different process required to update these types ofmacro enabled documents?

Saving to sharepoint is a rights issue and as far as I know that a file is downloaded to a temp folder when opened.

I know that since during a windows installation, certain libraries are installed specifically for certain types of chipsets/cpu's and that an abrupt hardware change can cause failures. I read on an article somewhere that you can migrate windows without hardware errors if you manage to get windows to operate on a politically correct mode similar safe mode to boot up with minimal functionality before installing the appropriate drivers for the new board.

I want to install my G41 intel mobo from an old am2 socket mobo, both cpu's are 64 bit capable and I was wondering if there would be any difficulties or questions during the migration. Overall I want to avoid a complete OS re-install.

Any clue anybody? Getting documentation on Sharepoint Services is next to impossible of how it works IIS (Internet Information Services, on Server 2003) and SQL to store your files. Sometimes I like it but I got some update that now makes my Sharepoint not directly link to my office files in Internet Explorer 7. EG: I click in Sharepoint, click a link for a word file, it freezes then crashes IE7. Anyone know any sites on tutorials or have a particular site to recommend. I use it at work so I really don't feel like getting a book to implement it from a top down level but just want some clue in's on what to do to get it more functional or what not. My background is in OS's and I'm just getting into to knowing MS Server 03 but from a casual level all I keep finding is posts on how amazing sharepoint services 3.0 is and how sharepoint server 07 is great but nothing on watching it work, how it really functions, or documentation on it. Any one have any ideas or should I just keep digging and maybe just buy a book and learn some more that way?

Simple question really I'm not wanting to get into understanding all of the .NET environment and coding alternate forms at the moment into Share Point Services. But... I was curious if there was a simple way to merely make the home page show a picture I want. When I try to drag in a jpg, or save the jpg to a simple HTML document that only has the picture, it doesn't give an option to save. When I go to help MS in typical fashion goes into VOLUMES of information on how much Sharepoint services can do but not a simple, do this, do that, bam, there you go. It mentions using an HTML editor like Frontpage, but I don't have it.

Can I simply just create a web part another way? Also do I have to add it from the server or can I use a client to upload to it? I'm a total noob at Share Point services. I can do the change themes, change permissions, and add and destroy content, but once it get's to web parts I'm clueless and the site is not that intuitive on helping someone new to it either on that part. If anyone has any ideas and I'm just doing something wrong and it's really easy let me know. Thanks!

Also too and not as necesarry is Share Point Services 3 a lot better than 2? Does it auto upload with updates to MS 2003 server or do I have to request it?

A:Anyone know Sharepoint Services?

Web parts are all programmed and can be created in FrontPage. You cannot simply insert an image as a background.

Hiya All !

Hope someone can help out here.
I have been tasked with implementing W2k3 Active Directory at our company.

Current layout:
Approx 500 users - 350+ here in the US and approx 100+ overseas.
The two buildings in the US are connected via a T3 Wireless connection
Overseas is connected to us via T1

It is now set as a NT4 Domain and all users are Win2K or XP
DNS Servers are external (for now...changing that with the AD Setup)
DHCP is a Win2K Server box.

Website is hosted internally. Email is Exchange 5.5 and is currently reaching capacity (hence the migration).
Now with the migration:
1) Would it be best to go with the idea of having basically two domains?
External being the company.com and the internal being something like company.local

2) Does anyone know of a good book that would cover how to go about all of this, or where to get some good documentation? (that would be so awesome if someone did)

I'm sure many of you have already been through this and any pointers would ohhhh soooo appreciated.

Thanks Ahead of Time

Hi All,
I have a question pertaining to migrating End User machines from an existing domain to a new domain. My company and I have decided to upgrade our Domain infrastructure as well as rename our domain so we are standing up a domain next to our current one and
then migrating over Server, workstations, end users, etc. My question is if the Username convention/structure stays in place and we dis-join a workstation from the old domain and join it to the new one, when a user logs on since the Username is the same will
it pull the previous profile information located in C:\Users\<Username>? If it will create a new profile then would Easy Transfer Wizard be the answer to getting that information transferred over to the new Profile location or will other tools/actions
be necessary. Thanks Technet community.

This is an advanced question. I'm just seeing what anybody might have to chip in. So I'm working with a SBS 2003 R2. We have the local intranet (companyweb) that uses SharePoint for the document sharing and what not. SharePoint has a feature that enables users to search on the companyweb page. However, this feature does not come standard. It has to be implemented. I've been finding a couple of different options available. The strongest one seems to be just installing SQL Server 2000 or higher to supplement the back end database for the SharePoint Search. Has anyone had to work with this before and have any suggestions?

P.S.- SBS does install SQL desktop engine "stock" onto the server. But it doesn't have anything actually running in the background. Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I'm in a predicament. Our small company uses a domain controller which every user logs into for access to the network and their local profiles. The profiles are NOT coming/stored on the server side however, they are simply local, but users are given rights to certain file server areas. The machine used as the DC is VERY old and we're not confident it will stay running much longer.
What's the best way to migrate users to a new server?
We have a new machine, with a proper Windows 2003 server installed. We set up another domain (OfficeNet2). I was under the impression we simply needed to "promote" the new server to become the new Domain Controller - however, we're not sure how to do this, and do we need to "copy" the old user login information from the old server to the new (If that's even required?)
Any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!
All users are XP PRO SP3 (with a few MACs) and both servers are Win2003.

A:Migrating from one Domain Controller to Another

Actually it would have been easier if you kept the new server on the same domain -


If you have the ability to do it you may want to just do that. I have some links in this thread that wshow you how to have 2 DCs in one domain and to promote the new one.

When you have 2 different domains it becomes a bit more convoluted and you have to do some trusting and domain migrations.

we had a windows server 2008 Domain network.
now we have deployed a brand new windows server 2012 R2 forest.
so we must disjoin client computers from previous domain and join them to this new domain.
when users of this new domain login to their computers, new profile folder is created for them (e.g. c:\users\u1.newdomain.lab, but this folder definitely doesn't contain their previous profile folder contents (desktop, documents, App data....)
what is the best solution to migrate user profiles from each previous user to related new user without any problem ?

I've got about 15 users who need to be migrated from an old domain to a new domain (company acquisition) on their existing laptops. They want to keep all the normal stuff, My Documents, Desktop, Favorites... but they will be changing email servers.

I've been told to use the Windows File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but I can't get it to work effectively, if at all. Is this the correct tool to accomplish the migration, or is there something else I should be doing?

Thanks all,

A:Migrating to new domain (Profile migration)

I don't think so. The Profile Migration tool moves a users documents/settings from
one client system to another client system.

The Email settings are there too, but you're moving too much; you only need to edit the settings.

In a Domain Controller / Exchange Srvr environment, you may need to move the
server-side user data, but I'm not sure that the Migration tool addresses that at all.

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.

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

The company I work for has recently decided to migrate to a domain.
Since we have moved to the domain printers and file shares have

departments fixing printer and file shares that have stopped working

Another problem I am having is that when changes are made to a
spreadsheet in a shared folder on one computer they are not updating
to the original spreadsheet. It is almost like it is making two seperate
copies. The computers are running XP sp2. The printers are installed

We have an NT server with 20 users and have just bought a new server with Windows 2003 server specifically to run Terminal Services. This will host a management software package that is currently used on the main site, and will allow users in two other offices to run it, accessing the one database.

I was assuming that the new server would simply be a member server, belonging to the existing domain and it would all be straightforward. But it occurs to me that there may be some considerations with regard to licenses, the fact that one is NT and the other 2003, where the database is located etc. that I should be aware of before charging in.

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Windows 2003 Server domain

MS licensing is very hard to decipher, but my best guess is that the NT licenses are sufficient for the server except for the Terminal Services licenses. You will need specific Terminal Server Client licenses in either per seat or per server configuration. If you have a good handle on who will run the client software, you may want to get per seat, but usually, per server is easier to manage. You may want to contact your MS contract agent if you have one to clarify. When I have had complex licensing issues, it took their experts up to 3 months to figure it out! And they expect everyone to comply with rules they can't figure out. Good luck!

This may be due to the new dynamic DNS type messages that 2k uses that NT doesn't understand. The only problem I have had with this type of setup is when the 2k server is the print server. Some print drivers don't want to print from NT4 machines to a 2k print server.

Does anyone know if Terminal Services CAL's migrate from Server 2000 to 2003? We are going to get a new Terminal Server and I need to find out if I need to repurchase the CAL's or not.


A:Migrating 2k Server CAL's to 2k3

Looks like you can use your 2000 CAL's on the 2003 server, you have to re-register them.

"You must call Microsoft Clearinghouse to install and move the existing Windows 2000 Licenses to a Windows Server 2003 license server. A license server that runs on Windows Server 2003 supports both Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Terminal Server licenses. However, if you upgrade or migrate your Windows 2000 license server, you need to reinstall the Windows 2000 Terminal Server CALs on the Windows Server 2003 license server. For reinstallation, you need to call the Microsoft Clearinghouse to get the license keypacks that go with the new server ID."

I am wondering if it is possible to use Sharepoint in connection with Access 2007 for the purposes of building a database to manage information that myself and employees out of the office can access... if I don't know the first thing about servers.

Does Microsoft make this possible, or does it require a high level of server knowledge?

I have no experience using or maintaining this or any other version of SharePoint.

I would like to know if anyone out there has any good info to pass on that would help me to understand the concept of SharePoint as well as common practices of maintaining it.
I have gone thru the training tutorial from MS, but it only shows the 'Good' about SharePoint. I would like to know what to expect from the install all the way to the daily maintenance.

Thanks for any advice or help.
