Preferred Solution: What are the prerequistes to install ie11 on windows server 2008 r2 SP1

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.)

So I have a client who just got 10 new windows 10 machines and added them to the windows 2008R2 domain. By default, Edge is the set browser and I know I can manually go into the profile and set the preferred browser but the problem is multiple users connect to each machine (this is in a DR office) the nurses move around and log into their profiles on each machine. So they would have to do this on each machine for each user which they don't want to do.

Is there a way to enforce the browser for all windows 10 machines via GPA to use IE11 that comes with windows 10?

My idea was to either domain wide on windows 10 machines use IE11 or if not possible created a GPA based on OS and set the default browser.

Or worst case figures out a way to remove Edge from the machines.

Does anyone happen to know a way or ran into this issue previously?

A:Any way to force IE11 as default browser via domain GP? Server 2008

Check with Microsoft before attempting to remove Edge, you might end up with in-valid/un-authentic Windows. If memory serves me, I think the IT people had to develop a PUSH technology, a forced net-station download and a forced Top/Down maintenance, in order to enforce certain defaults.

I have a server that had IE10(?) on it, which wasn't working with an app, so somebody uninstalled it. Instead of reverting back to an earlier version of IE, it has completely removed it from the server. This occurred before my involvement.
I have downloaded the x64 IE8 install from MS, but it won't allow me to install, I get the error "Internet Explorer 8 is not supported on this operating system". If I download x64 IE10 it will install fine, but this version is not compatible with
the other app that caused the original problem. Bottom line: it HAS to be IE8.

None of the below have worked for me:
Booting into clean mode then running the install - no difference
Running this command to restore the default security settings: secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose - no difference
Running the command to enable the IE feature: dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 - return error is "Feature name Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 is unknown"

I may have tried some other stuff but the repeated banging of my head against the wall has affected my memory.
Does anyone have a clue on how I can get IE8 installed onto this server?

Thanks in advance!

A:Unable to install after windows 2008 R2 server

When an operating system is already installed and you want to replace it with a different one, you have to go into the BIOS Setup and change the first boot device to CD-ROM.

When you turn on your PC, look at the splash-screen which appears during the initial boot process. It will say "Press X to for Setup" (where X is the actual key you need to press and hold until the BIOS Setup screen appears).

A:Windows Server 2008 R2 - SP1 wont install - 0x800f0818

The affected update here is one which isn't publicly (officially) available - it's the Windows Update Agent update.

This looks to me rather as if you've already attempted a fix, and it's failed because you simply renamed an existing file?

Let's see if the standard fix works - but we may have to get creative.


I've uploaded a file - rvxaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive

Please download and save it.

Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…

Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder rvxaa in the same place.

Open this folder - there should be one folder inside it ( Packages)

Copy the content of the Packages folder to the folder

C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages


Now run the CheckSUR tool again (it may take a while)

Post the new CheckSUR.log file, and the CheckSUR.persist.log file.

Then,
SFC -System File Checker - Instructions

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

Upload the CBS.log file (compressed, please!) to your reply - if it's bigger than 8MB compressed, then upload it to a fileshare site, and post a link (preferably DropBox or OneDrive).

Hi !

However, the automatic update tells me there's no update available for my computer, and if I try the Windows download center, it just doesn't work, and there's a choice of 4 or 5 different SP1's which all look the same to me... I've downloaded several, but get absolutely nowhere.

Would I automatically get SP1 if I bought a newer version of Windows 7 or if I upgraded ? The one I use is family premium and is about 2.5 years old.

I have a problem.

I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that amongst other things, acts as a media store/server. I recently got a Windows Phone 7 handset that can only synchronise content via Zune (ridiculous, I know), but Zune refuses to install on Server 2008 R2, saying it can only be installed on XP and Windows 7.

I have installed most of the Win 7 components missing from Server 2008 R2 so I'm not worried about compatibility, I just want to know, how can I force install an application to an OS that it is not 'allowed' to be installed on.

If I can't get Zune onto the Server, I'm effectively barred from transfering music and video to my phone. Please help.

A:How do I install Windows Server 2008 R2 on Windows 8?

It's probably considered a downgrade since 8 came out after 2k8. 2008 is the companion of Vista and 2008r2 is the companion of Windows 7.

Are you wanting to install it in a VM or directly on the hardware ?? If you're doing a "hardware" install, you'll have to wipe it first.

Hello,
I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task.

Server 2008, failed VPN setup made me lose all internal wired LAN connections to server.

I tried to set up VPN using online instructions for Server2008. As soon as it enabled all our company PCs internally lost access to server.

Can anyone help me remove my VPN setup and restore local LAN connections, its as if the VPN overides the LAN connections internally.

As such all hard wired PCs lost internet too as its through server, however wireless PCs do have internet but no server access.

Note that all was working previously

Thanks all

A:Restrict Administrator account to install only (Server 2008)

Can you install administrator applications that require administrative power to be installed....No...unless you get the developer of those applications to change them. Even if you could, that would be a security risk. A non-administrator user could use the administrative-powered application to conduct administrative tasks. Not good.

Hello all,

Your help is desired here.

I just built a fresh windows server 2008 64 bit OS. I need to install sql 2008 on it. When I try it immediately prompts an error saying microsoft .net 3.5 is not installed.

Problem is, is I did install .net 3.5 sp1.

Some things I have researched indicate that 3.5 needs to be enabled in 2008 server OS. When I go to do that, all that is listed under features is .net 3.0. So I enabled that, hoping that on a refresh it would see 3.5 but it does not.

Has anyone installed sql 2008 on a windows 2008 server and if so could you shed any light please?

Hi guys,
 
What free Antivirus software for servers?
What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea?
 
Info:
My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet..  He uses 2 laptops at the most  to access files on the server.
 
However at some points he will update Windows Server 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet., and obviously leave himself open to malware etc. for a short time.
 
The cost of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for 10 workstations upwards, and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down.
 
 
Questions:
I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution.
 
Also, if he got Malware on it (e.g. Rootkit or Delta) would current Bleeping Computer tools (e.g. Rkill, RogueKiller etc) still work on the server - or does it require another approach? 
 
I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open.
 
 
Thanks in advance guys
 
 
 
 
 

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
 
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

AMD FX 3.1 8core
Asus Sabertooth 990fx

2 WD Caviar Black 1tb
2 OCZ Vertex 2 60gb - Raid 0
EVGA GTX 580
Thermaltake 1200w modular PSU
Antek 300 Black

I put all this together and plugged my 2 SSDs into SATA 1 and 2 and left the 2 tb drives unconnected for the moment. I loaded up windows 7 ultimate X64 on a flashdrive and went into the bios. Set drives to RAID and driver to legacy, (I dont really understand how to set up the other UEFI raid controller). On boot I pressed ctrl-f and set up raid 0, 64 bit stream and fast. Set my 2 drives to yes and named it SSD120 then cleaned the MBR with ctrl-y, and let it use the max size.
I booted into windows 7 install and set up the drivers, selected my 120gb drive and away it went. 5 minutes later everything was copied over and 6 minutes after that I was booting into Windows 7.
I decided too late I wanted to run server 2008 and use hyper V to set up a few other machines and a domain in my home. So not really caring I just nuked my computer right away. I swapped the windows 7 flash drive for my server 2008 flash drive. Formatted the SSDs and recreated the raid. Again it states they are functional and the bios recognizes them. When I boot into the server 2008 install and load the windows 7 raid drivers I cannot see any drives whatsoever. Even if I go back to the windows 7 install. Do I need to pull the drives out and reformat them with a sata-usb cord or what? I am at the end of where I can t... Read more

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

Hi all
Have been a LONG LONG user of Linux as a server (hosting VM's XP / W7 mix) and file / print sharing.

I used to avoid MS like the plague as far as SERVER environments are concerned - probably because my first experince was Windows NT (Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks) which was SO HORRIBLE that it put me off Windows servers for ages.

(Note I'm using a server in a HOME environment where we have around 8 machines (most of which are actually mine for testing -- not a corporate environment which has other considerations).

The problem now with the latest Linux distros that they are trying to be "A Better Windows than Windows". You can of course customize them but I haven't got the time or patience to do this any more. To select what packages to install / leave out now is a 100% pain and if you do it wrong the chances are the system will give errors.

I've looked at the new SUSE 11.2 -- slick and polished - bit I don't NEED "an alternative Windows".

I've just been looking at Windows Server 2008 R2 (got it from Technet) and I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with it so far. I've installed the STANDARD version - you don't need datacenter or Enterprise version for a home server.

It runs vmware server on it just fine (although I might go the whole hog and use the Hyper-V virtualisation -- need to do a bit more research).

I'm quite happy letting MS do the updates than having to mess around with Kernel compiles etc.
