{Advice offered} - Copy files to Intranetware server using AT command

Q: {Advice offered} - Copy files to Intranetware server using AT command

I've installed the NT schedule utility from the NT resource kit on a local database web server to automate daily file copying tasks. I can copy files from folder to folder on the local machine using "AT <time> copy d:\foldername\*.* d:\newfoldername\", but I cannot copy to the drive mapped to an Intranetware server. I've configured the Schedule service to start with a username and password that has sufficient rights on both machines, and if I manually copy files either in Explorer or from the command prompt to the Intranetware server everything works fine.

Preferred Solution: {Advice offered} - Copy files to Intranetware server using AT command

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.)

Need help backing up a drive in nt4 using the "AT" command in a dos promt. Need to know what the syntax would be. Thanks
 

A:{Advice Offered} - at command in nt

Greetings

What are you trying to back up?

If it is just your data, then setup a CMD file with all the commands in it (to stop which ever services might be holding the files open, copy the data, and restart the services up again).

Then you just need the AT command to run the CMD file at a specific time:

AT /every:M,T,W,Th,F C:\backup.cmd
However, this is not the best way to backup your server. The best way is to actually get a backup software (like Backup Exec, or ArcServe), which will have it's scheduler, that you can use to backup files that a simple copy cammoand can not backup (like the registry, and any open files).

Could you please help me figure out the command needed to stop and services remotely on NT systems? Thanks
 

A:{Advice Offered} - NT command line

Greetings

As you may have found out, the NET START and NET STOP commands are a bit limited.

The command is a program that is found on the NT4 Server Resource Kit. It is called NETSVC.EXE and can be downloaded from here.

Here is a little about it:

E:\I386\netmgmt>netsvc.exe /?
Controls and displays the status of services.

NETSVC servicename \\computername /command

servicename Name of the service
computername Name of the computer to administer.
/command One of the following:
/query Queries the status of the service.
/start Starts the service.
/stop Stops the service.
/pause Pauses the service.
/continue Starts the paused service.
/list Lists installed services (omit servicename)

Example: NETSVC server \\joes486 /query
Example: NETSVC "Clipbook Server" \\popcorn /stop
Example: NETSVC alerter \\joes486 /pause
Example: NETSVC /list \\joes486

Arguments are allowed in any order.

I am trying to run a .bat file with the AT command. The task is being ran but, it is not executing the .bat file. I can run the .bat file manually from the command prompt with the same path I put in the AT command.

Here are 2 sample of what I tried:

at 09:00 cmd /c p:\jobs\getpoedi.bat

At the specified time the task goes away but doesn't perform what it is suppose to. I no this because, the end of the .bat file send me a message.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Running a .bat file w/ the AT Command

Greetings

Ok... there are a few things that can be going wrong here:

1) Your scheduler service is not running (unlikely, because your bat file sends you a message, I am assuming using net send)

2) You are attempting to access domain resources (perhaps the P: drive), which is not allowed with the default security settings on the Scheduler service

The way to get around this is as follows:

Easy way: Open up the Services applet in Control Panel. Double click on the Scheduler service. Take the dot in Use the Service Account and put it in the Domain Account box, and type in a domain account and password. Remember, if you change the password on the account then all scheduled tasks will fail, so use an account that does not change password often... like an account created specifically for the scheduler service.

Better Solution: Install IE5.01 It comes with an updated Task Scheduler service, which is a GUI interface into the Scheduler service, and allows you to assign a different account to each task (if you want to), as well as allowing for more complex timings (like "every Mon, Wed, Fri at 3:30am for the next three weeks only and run the task every 10 minutes until 6:00am" )

This would be my solution.

I am running windows 2000 pro. I am trying to copy over the existing msvcrt40.dll (64K) because it is giving me erros when I run certain programs. Now here is the problem when I attempt to copy it over, it will, but then in about 5 secs the older 64k version automatically copies over the newer version. Whats going on? How can I keep the newer dll?

Thanks
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Can't copy over existing msvcrt40.dll

Windows 2000 has File Protection. Meaning you can just copy over the dll. Infact you can delete the dll and when you go back to the folder it will be there again. Why exacly would you want to delete the dill? The way 2000 Handles dlls I would guess something else is the problem.

Just a Side note, in order to change that dll you will have to copy it in 2 places and change it in the Driver.Cab. So in general Windows 2000 Keeps 2 Copies of all dlls and 3 copies of Systems Dlls

i would like someone to make me feel better, or worse (that would difficult, however), about what i did today. i realize this may be a hardware issue rather than a winNT issue...
we have a RAID file server running windows NT with Exchange server running on top of that. when i came in to work this morning, the server was beeping loudly and the console would not respond to keyboard or mouse input. i tried the "caps lock" button -- nothing. so i used an old strategy -- cycle the power, and that didn't work. i was later told by one of the it guys that you can't just "cycle the power" because the drives may be at that moment trying to sync and cycling the power would be disastrous. the same folks spent the entire day rebuilding the server and looking at me funny when i walked by. did i really do something wrong by cycling the power?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - raid server - NT server

50/50 chance on that in my experience. Never have had it not recover from cycling the power though. Sounds like some other problem occured. However they have a point. If in fact a volume went down and raid was sync'ing the disks you could have done damage. I've had drives go down in a raid volume and the system still responded to the mouse and keyboard. So I think you didn't cause the problem.

Just my opinion though....

I have high speed internet and am interested in running my computer as a server so that other people can access it. How might I go about doing so?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Server

Greetings

If you are running Windows9x (Win95, 98 or ME), then I suggest you install the Apache web server. It is one of the most used web server software packages used on the internet.

If you are running NT4.0, then I also suggest using Apache as IIS4.0 is not good enough (in my humble opinion) to be used as a decent web/ftp server.

If you are running Win2K, however, then I do suggest using IIS5.0 (it comes free with all versions of Win2K). It is a very robust and feature full web/ftp server.

Obviously, if you are running Linux, then Apache is once again recommended.
Then, once you have your server sorted out, and you have your web sites ready to go, you will then need to register a domain name with InterNic. They will ask you for at least two authoratative DNS servers which will point to your web sites. Talk to your ISP for more information regarding this, as I am sure they will be able to help with not only the DNS but also the registration with Internic.

Once that is setup, all you will then need to do is tell people that your sites are there. I think there are a few programs that you can download that will register your site with a load of search engines.

Hope that helps

Do you then want a Webpage to appear? If so, then you need to install Peer Web Services. I do not know if WinME has that option available (it was available in Win95 and Win98). If you had Win2K, you could install IIS (Internet Information Server) 5.0, which comes with Win2K.

What you can do, is go to www.apache.org and download the Apache web server, which is one of the most well used web servers on the internet. Download the Win32 executable, as the other downloads are for Linux, BSD and other operating systems.

Right here is my queston.

The other is used for all our external clients to dial into Remote Access Server SQL etc. THESE NT SERVERS ARE NOT ON THE SAME NETWORK>

How do I connect this 98 machine to both of the NT Servers so that I can access the net and the mail as well as maintain my ODBC connection to the RAS Server.

I also wish to keep the RAS Server totally of the internal network, it must be only accessed by the single 98 machine. Bear in Mind the 98 Machine currently logs on to the RAS Server. Via its own little 10 port HUB.

A:{Advice Offered} - NT Server Service

Greetings

If you want a program to run as a service, there is a program that comes with the NT Resource kit that will make any .EXE an NT service.

However, it is pretty limited in scope. A better solution is to get ServiceMill which is a commercial package that will allow any EXE, COM, BAT and CMD file to become a native NT service. They also have an OCX available, so that you can add it to any program you are writing, so that it can be installed as a service.

A:{Advice Offered} - Ras Server conection

Greetings

Ok... firstly, can you ping the IP address of your exchange server? Can you then ping it's server name?

If you can ping the IP address, but not the Server name, it is possible that there is no valid form or Name Resolution, and you must then use a LMHOSTS file to make that connection for you.
When you log onto your PC at home, are you using the same username and password that you use when you are at work? Are you using the Client for Microsoft Networks at home?

Does the RAS server, or the network it is connected to, have a WINS or DNS server? If so, make sure that the IP addresses for them are in your Dial-up settings.

I have been doing quite alot of work having 2 operating systems on one machine.
My latest endevor is to place a NT server partition on a disk with win98.

I have for now just created a 2GB partition formattted it with NTFS and FAT16 but both times after the initial setup, the machine restarts and I am confronted with a black screen with a flashing cursor, nothing more.

Does NTserver not like partitions or is it the cheap disk partitioner i am using?

Any ideas?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - NT Server Partition

Greetings

Do you mind doing a "scorched Earth" re-install? Meaning, are you willing to FDISK the drive? If so, then this is how you should do it:

1) Run FDISK from a boot floppy. You can get one at www.bootdisk.com or here. The best is to create a 1 Gig drive for Win98.

2) At this question, follow the graphic's example and select N.


This will make sure the File Format is FAT16.

3) Install Win98.

4) Setup Win98 with audio, screen, etc drivers, so that it is running as you would like it to.

5) Install NT. There should be nothing but empty Space as the rest of your HD. Let the NT install program create it all as an Extended partition, but only create a 2 GIG partition that you will install NT onto.

You can create DATA drives out of the rest of the HD space later, using NT's Disk Manager.
If you are getting the blank screen after the dos-based portion of the NT install, it might be because the boot partition has not been written correctly. On my boot disk is a program called BootPart, which you can run off the boot disk, which can write an NT boot partition to the boot partition on your HD.

A:{Advice Offered} - Setting up an FTP Server

Your best bet, would be to have a look at Apache Web Server.

It is an industry standard (it host more websites then IIS), it is open source, it runs on NT, Unix and Linux servers, it is free, it is small, it is well documented and relatively easy to install. One of it's major plusses over a system like IIS is that you are able to RESUME an FTP download... something that is still lacking proper support in IIS.

Go to the website... there is a lot of documentation there.

A:{Advice Offered} - Web Server IIS Problem

Put the Server's IP address into your browser's address bar, and click on the Go button. Did it get to the web page and view it ok?

If so, then the problem is not on the server, but on how you are trying to access the server.

Open up a command prompt and type in "ping {Web server name}".

Does it try connect on the new static IP address, or on the old Address?

If it is the old IP address you must try fix your name resolution. Perhaps you had a static entry in the WINS server, or perhaps there are now two entries in your WINS server for the same machine. Check your DNS server. Also, make sure that you do not have a HOSTS or LMHOSTS file that is pointing to the wrong IP address. (The HOSTS and LMHOSTS files can be found in \windows\ on Win9x/ME and in \winnt\system32\drivers\etc in WinNT/2K).

Tell us what you find out.

A:{Advice Offered} - DHCP server & Hub info

I see Reuel hasn't gotten to this yet, so I'll give it a shot...
With my DHCP Server (PDC), I've got it with WINS, pulling the info from another site. Put WINS on there so you can resolve the computer names from the IP's...That way the only protocol you need is TCP/IP. If you're not getting your WINS info from somewhere else, you'll need to set up your lmhosts file. Put those settings on your server, add the new computer to your domain, then log on. If you've still got that 169.xxx.xxx.xxx do an ipconfig /release, then /renew from the command prompt, and I suppose that should be that.
As far as the connecting with the hub, I believe you can just run the patch cables from the NICs to it, if there is a switch for "normal" on the hub, go to that, not "uplink". Then again, I could just be talking out of my arse here.
But I honestly think the best thing to do is to try whatever Reuel has to offer...He's the man, in case you didn't know.

It sounds like the drive you have is formatted with FAT32.

Here's what you can do:
1) Get a boot disk, ( I have one available from www.xperts.co.za/multiboot ), and use it to delete the partition, and recreate it as either FAT16 or NTFS (most bootdisks have FDISK and FORMAT, which will only give you the choice of FAT16. My disk has Partition magic, which will give you both options).

2) Recreate the partition as FAT16 or NTFS

3) Try re-installing NT.
Also, make sure that the active partition (the partition that is bootable), is NOT more then 8 gigs away from the start of the drive, and that the size of your system partition does not exceed 8 gigs (this is a flaw in the installation program for NT4, which has been corrected with Win2K).

I have installed Active Directory services from the 2000 server disk and have found that will not connect to my domain controller. I just want to be able to user the user manager for domain feature that active directory offers.
thanks

UM... I am sorry to say that that is not compatible with NT4. Your domain controller needs to be Win2K for that to work. You can still use the old User manager for Domains program from your NT4 server tools on Win2K.

Cheers

I am running NT 4.0 server with MS Proxy Server. I recently lost the hard drive on the server and reinstalled everything including Proxy Server. Before the new hd, the NT 4.0 network clients were able to use aol instant messenger, but now it won't connect. Does any one know what proxy setting is preventing the connection to AIM?
(note: I called aol and they said they don't support Windows NT!!!)

Well, if you use AOL, that is what do you expect? AOL is not a good company, just one of the biggest... remind you of anyone?

OK, I do not know which port AOL uses for communication (you might be able to get this info from AOL, or their support site, but this is the port you will need to open in the Proxy Server Settings.

Hope this helps

I'm trying to get my M$ Proxy Server 2.0 to see Incoming and outgoing e-mail(eudora).

In the Winsock Proxy server Protocols POP3 is on POrt 110 using TCP and Inbound. SMTP(Client)mis on Port 25 TCP and listed as outbound.

In the permissons Protocol on Winproxy POP3 and SMTP(client) are set to grant access to everyone. The mail server is listed in the LAT file. Eudora's web site says to just enable the ports on Proxy and it will work. I thought everything I did enabled the ports.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - E-mail & Proxy Server

Greetings

You need to install the Proxy client on all your user's machines that you want to be able to connect to the internet.

To do that, connect to the proxy server via Network neighbourhood and you will see a MSPCLNT share, and in it are setup files for the proxy server.

Install the proxy client, reboot the users machine, and they will be able to get their mail.

You need to have the proxy client loaded to be able to access any other port besides port 80.

Cheers

A:{Advice Offered} - Proxy Server question....

Domain filtering is used to grant or deny client access to certain domains/IP addresses.

Click the checkbox next to Enable Filtering to allow filtering.

Options:
• Grant - Grants access to all domains except the domains that are specified.
• Deny - Denies access to all domains except the domains that are specified.

You can grant or deny access to:
• Single computer - Must specify the IP address of a specific system. Can click the ellipsis button next to the IP field, and specify a DNS name. It will then return the IP address of that DNS name.
• Group of computers - Must specify the IP address and subnet mask of the systems.
• Domain - Must specify the domain name to grant or deny access to.

First off don't know if this it the right forum. Aplogize if this is not.

Question: My company is currently looking at deployment of a Citrix Server to deploy all commonly used apps(Office,Financal,Legacy Database programs, email etc...) My concern is that if 65 users are hitting this server for its apps won't this cause a major network slow down. The server is a Compaq ML380 with 933Mhz,256k ram,RAID 5 and is connects to a 10Mbps 3com Switch. Most workstations run Windows 95 and 98 with a few NT. My first thought is to change the Router and Switch to 100Mbps. I would like any feed back on this. Thank you very much

Bob
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Citrix Metaframe Server

I don't know how well Citrix will put up with 65 hits on the server, but I can tell you for sure that you should go to a switching 100 hub. I don't like running at 10 with 3 computers.

What are you thinking of the router for?

AT work we have our server running NT, we have 6 workstations running 98se and 3 running 98. we haven't connected to the server yet, we have been using one of the workstations with 98se as the server.
Will this combination of OS work ok with each other?
also our server hard drive has a "C" and "E" the "C" doesn't have enough room, how can I expand it with out losing data? we had put our accounting software and just about everything else on "C" when we first got it, we had a problem with our software so ended up as a temporary solution using the workstation as the server. now we want to try going back to the server but the "C" drive does not have enough room.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - 98se workstations with NT server?

first teh bad news.. as far as I know the only way to make a drive bigger is to repartition and that means loosing data. Is teh e a ahrd drive or something else? If its a HD you can use it instead of the c. there is nothing wrong, with splitting your files around. it's bad form and could result in problems latter, but chances are your hardware will become outdateed first. and as for the NT,W98,w95, no problem. tehy will allwork together. it's the networking protocals that alow them to communicate. You could network,linux,nt,unix,os2,and whatever granpas computer is running so long as each supports uniform protocal.

Sorry about the lenghty scenario but it is the only way that I can explain what I want to ask !!

Scenario :

I have a master domain (MasterDom)

I have a resource domain (ResDom)

The ResDom trusts MasterDom

John has an account in the masterdom and logs in no problem

John is the member of a global group (Globgrp) in the MasterDom

There is a local group named Locgrp created at the ResDom

The Globgrp from the MasterDom is made a member of the Locgrp from the ResDom

A member (MemSrv) is part of the ResDom with a share named Resource.

The Locgrp is given the full control permission to the share and the NTFS permission of change.

When John logs in should he be able to access share Memsrv

Thanks in advance

Ron
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Server in the Enterprise question

Greetings

Well... I feel like a question has been missed out, but here goes an answer.

You need to create a Global group in the Resource Domain. Put the Global group from the Accounts domain in the global group from the Resource domain.

On The Member server, create a Local group. Give the local group the correct permissions for the resource on the member server.

Then add the global group from the Resource domain into the local group on the member server.

Hope that helps

i know nothing about terminal server, but i'm wondering if a person with terminal server on their nt workstation can create a "session" with another nt workstation that doesn't have any of the terminal server "stuff" installed (a basic nt install) and does that mean that they can view your desktop, the things that you're doing, or what? does this make sense?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - terminal server question....

Terminal server runs on a server and allow workstations to run application on its CPU, via their keyboard/mouse/monitor. You use the CPU power of the server, not the CPU power of your machine. Kind of like the old dumb terminal days.

I don't think that has anything to do with what you are talking about...

Are you asking if it is possible for someone with NT Workstation to remotely control somebody elses NT Workstation?

I'm using NT4 SBS 4.5 (+ Option pack for NT, SQL Server 7.0, Proxy server 2.0 ).

My workstations successfully connect to the web via Proxy Server but i cannot send/receive emails using Outlook Express. Outlook is setup to point to a POP3 server (for incoming mail - port 110) and a SMTP server (for outgoing - port 25.) When i try to send/receive mail i get an error message saying "socket error 100061". I also have a problem when i try to connect to any external ftp servers - "server not found".

Does anyone have any advice on setting up these services alongside Proxy server?

thanks.

I might be wrong, but I'm connecting my internet via a proxy server too. I was told that I cannot receive any email via POP3 for firewall reason.
