Preferred Solution: Updates to SQL Server Books Online for SQL Server 2000(& some others): July 16

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.)

Hiya

SQL Server 2000 introduces the ability to host multiple instances of
SQL Server on a single physical machine. Each instance operates for
all intents and purposes as though it was a separate server. However,
the multiple instances cannot all use the standard SQL Server session
port (TCP 1433). While the default instance listens on TCP port 1433,
named instances listen on any port assigned to them. The SQL Server
Resolution Service, which operates on UDP port 1434, provides a way
for clients to query for the appropriate network endpoints to use for
a particular SQL Server instance.

There are three security vulnerabilities here. The first two are
buffer overruns. By sending a carefully crafted packet to the
Resolution Service, an attacker could cause portions of system memory
(the heap in one case, the stack in the other) to be overwritten.
Overwriting it with random data would likely result in the failure of
the SQL Server service; overwriting it with carefully selected data
could allow the attacker to run code in the security context of the
SQL Server service.

The third vulnerability is a denial of service vulnerability. SQL
uses a keep-alive mechanism to distinguish between active and passive
instances. It is possible to create a keep-alive packet that, when
sent to the Resolution Service, will cause SQL Server 2000 to respond
with the same information. An attacker who created such a packet,
spoofed the source address so that it appeared to come from a one SQL

This patch eliminates two newly discovered vulnerabilities affecting
SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000:

- A buffer overrun vulnerability that occurs in several Database
Consistency Checkers (DBCCs) that ship as part of SQL Server 2000.
DBCCs are command console utilities that allow maintenance and
other operations to be performed on a SQL Server. While many of
these are executable only by sysadmin, some are executable by
members of the db_owner and db_ddladmin roles as well. In the most
serious case, exploiting this vulnerability would enable an
attacker to run code in the context of the SQL Server service,
thereby giving the attacker complete control over all databases
on the server.

- A SQL injection vulnerability that occurs in two stored
procedures used in database replication. One of these can only be
run by users who have been assigned the db_owner role; the other,
due to a permissions error, could be run by any user who could log
onto the server interactively. Exploiting the vulnerability could
enable an attacker to run operating system commands on the server,
but is subject to significant mitigating factors as discussed
below.

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

I have a client who has an existing Server 2000 domain. He is running two Windows 2000 servers in his domain. What he's looking to do is to replace the master domain controller,(the server which was first brought up and hence contains the master copy of the domain database).

I believe that since this is going to be a completely new server and running Server 2003 standard edtiion I believe, that I'll need to first take everyone out of the domain, demote the second domain controller to a stand-alone and then demote the master domain controller which effectively dissolves the domain. Then after bringing the brand new server up, recreate the domain and then the secondary domain controller and join everyone back into domain (new SID but same domain name).

Does this sound correct-could anyone confirm whether this is correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 2000. In addition, it
eliminates three newly discovered vulnerabilities affecting SQL
Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 (but not any previous versions of SQL
Server or MSDE):

- - A buffer overrun vulnerability in a procedure used to encrypt SQL
Server credential information. An attacker who was able to
successfully exploit this vulnerability could gain significant
control over the database and possibly the server itself depending
on the account SQL server runs as.
- - A buffer overrun vulnerability in a procedure that relates to the
bulk inserting of data in SQL Server tables. An attacker who was
able to successfully exploit this vulnerability could gain
significant control over the database and possibly the server
itself.
- - A privilege elevation vulnerability that results because of in-
correct permissions on the Registry key that stores the SQL Server
service account information. An attacker who was able to success-
fully exploit this vulnerability could gain greater privileges on
the system than had been granted by the system administrator --
potentially even the same rights as the operating system.

When installing SQL Server 7.0 (including MSDE 1.0), SQL Server 2000,
or a service pack for SQL Server 7.0 or SQL Server 2000, the
information provided for the install process is collected and stored
in a setup file called setup.iss. The setup.iss file can then be
used to automate the installation of additional SQL Server systems.
SQL Server 2000 also includes the ability to record an unattended
install to the setup.iss file without having to actually perform an
installation. The administrator setting up the SQL Server can supply
a password to the installation routine under the following
circumstances:

- If the SQL Server is being set up in "Mixed Mode", a password
for the SQL Server administrator (the "sa" account) must be
supplied.
- Whether in Mixed Mode or Windows Authentication Mode, a User ID
and password can optionally be supplied for the purpose of
starting up SQL Server service accounts.

In either case, the password would be stored in the setup.iss file.
Prior to SQL Server 7.0 Service Pack 4, the passwords were stored in
clear text. For SQL Server 7.0 Service Pack 4 and SQL Server 2000
Service Packs 1 and 2, the passwords are encrypted and then stored.
Additionally, a log file is created during the installation process
that shows the results of the installation. The log file would also

The Internet Mail Connector (IMC) enables Microsoft Exchange Server
to communicate with other mail servers via SMTP. When the IMC
receives an SMTP extended Hello (EHLO) protocol command from a
connecting SMTP server, it responds by sending a status reply that
starts with the following:
250-<Exchange server ID>Hello<Connecting server ID>

Where:
<Exchange server ID> is the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of
the Exchange server <Connecting server ID> is either the FQDN or
the IP address of the server that initiated the connection.

The FQDN would be used if the Exchange5.5 IMC is able to resolve
this information through a reverse DNS lookup; the IP address
would be used if a reverse DNS lookup was not possible or failed
to resolve the connecting servers IP address.

A security vulnerability results because of an unchecked buffer
In the IMC code that generates the response to the EHLO protocol
command. If the total length of the message exceeds a particular

This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, MSDE
1.0, and MSDE 2000. In addition, it eliminates three newly discovered
vulnerabilities.

- Named Pipe Hijacking -
Upon system startup, SQL Server creates and listens on a specific
named pipe for incoming connections to the server. A named pipe is a
specifically named one-way or two-way channel for communication
between a pipe server and one or more pipe clients. The named pipe is
checked for verification of which connection attempts can log on to
the system running SQL Server to execute queries against data that is
stored on the server.

A flaw exists in the checking method for the named pipe that could
allow an attacker local to the system running SQL Server to hijack
(gain control of) the named pipe during another client's
authenticated logon password. This would allow the attacker to gain
control of the named pipe at the same permission level as the user
who is attempting to connect. If the user who is attempting to
connect remotely has a higher level of permissions than the attacker,
the attacker will assume those rights when the named pipe is
compromised.

- Named Pipe Denial of Service -
In the same named pipes scenario that is mentioned in the "Named Pipe
Hijacking" section of this bulletin, it is possible for an
unauthenticated user who is local to the intranet to send a very
large packet to a specific named pip... Read more

I was running FTP Serv-U on Windows 2000 without a problem. I upgraded to advanced server and now have issues. I am not familiar with all the options on 2000 b/c I'm still learning.
The problem I'm having is that the server is running but its not allowing any access. When using ftp to the shared folder, I'm just getting a blank white screen, havent even been prompted to login. When I start ftp serv-u, I originally get an error unable to connect to server 127.0.0.1 port 10666. Then I get another critical error sound and server starts running. I am behind a router which has a built in firewall but that has been configured to allow connections through on port 21. My server configurations are the exact same as I had before on 2000, the only change was the operating system.

2 Questions

1. Is there a ftp server option installed with windows that I can use so I dont have to use ftp serv-u? I'd much rather just run a server that is pre-installed with the OS

2. If no pre-installed ftp server is available, is there something extra that needs to be configured in the windows settings(something that may need to be turned on or off to get server working)?

The Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) provide a number of
supporting technologies for
accessing and using databases. Included among these functions is the
underlying support for
the T-SQL OpenRowSet command. A security vulnerability results
because the MDAC functions
underlying OpenRowSet contain an unchecked buffer.

An attacker who submitted a database query containing a specially
malformed parameter within
a call to OpenRowSet could overrun the buffer, either for the purpose
of causing the SQL
Server to fail or causing the SQL Server service to take actions
dictated by the attacker.

Maximum Severity Rating: Moderate

Affected Software:

Microsoft Data Access Components 2.5
Microsoft Data Access Components 2.6
Microsoft Data Access Components 2.7

Hiya

ISA Server contains a number of HTML-based error pages that allow
the server to respond to a client requesting a Web resource with
a customized error. A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists
in many of these error pages that are returned by ISA Server
under specific error conditions.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would have to first be aware of
a specific ISA server and its access policies or host an ISA
server of their own and create specific access policies designed
to exploit this vulnerability. The attacker could then craft a
request to trigger a page refusal. Once the attack was crafted,
the attacker would have to host a Web site containing the link,
or send the link to the user in the form of an HTML e-mail. After
the user previewed or opened the e-mail, the malicious site could
be visited automatically without further user interaction. In the
Web-based attack scenario, an attacker would have no way to force
a user to visit the Web site.
Maximum Severity Rating: Important

Affected Software:

Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Cust. has an existing Win 2000 advanced Svr. There are about 25 PCs w/ 2000 & XP. Currently they do not log on to the Svr, but boss would now like them to. Tried, and they could not get onto existing domain. I kept getting a DNS lookup error? To add I could ping the Svr and see the shared drive on the network but it had a red x on it?
 

A:2000 pro PC cannot logon to 2000 advanced server domain.

Does the server has a static IP address? try setting the server's IP address as the clints DNS server (you just input the IP address of the server in the clients DNS server address in the network properties).
