Q: Deploying Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server to Host User Desktops: Sep 19

Hiya

By adding an additional server to your Microsoft® Windows® Small Business Server 2003 network, you can enable Terminal Server. Using Terminal Server, you can host your users' desktops. This can save your organization money by allowing you to extend the life of your desktop hardware.
After you have installed Windows Small Business Server 2003 and have completed the To Do List, you can join an additional server to your network and configure it as a terminal server.

Preferred Solution: Deploying Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server to Host User Desktops: Sep 19

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.)

The situation is this...

I have a client who wants to install a server PC where they can use remote desktop connection, needs to be Win2003 as they need to have simultanious logins - in itself this is no problem, they are behind a router but setting up NAPT is no problem also.

My problem is that they already have a leased server also running Win2003 that has GPS tracking facility and is only used for this purpose - they can't also use it as a file server, and they are currently running it as a Terminal Server with RDC.

My problem is that I want to have both servers behind the same router/firewall but also be able to use remote desktop through the web and have users able to log into either of the servers?
 

A:Windows 2003 Terminal Server RDC

I believe you can change the port that Terminal Services runs on. But this would require them to always enter that port in when they use the client.

Hello - I've currently got a problem at work that is giving me a few sleepless nights. Basically I support a specialised tax application that has been around for a number of years and is solid and of good quality. However we have one user who has developed a problem recently. This is our only User who is running Windows Server 2003 and Terminal Services. Basically the system had been working fine for a number of years but recently developed a problem. The User has not made any changes to the configuration other than the addition of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

I can replicate the problem by denying Write access to the key system folder but I've got the User to check and he can write to files within the folder in question outside of the application. I know that Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 did introduce a number of improvements to Security but have not found anything to explain the problem. The application does make use of the Registry which may be relevant.

Any ideas/pointers would be very gratefully received.

Many thanks

Steve W.

Update - I've made some progress on this. The problem is being caused by the implementation of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. I know this update made a number of changes to Security and I suspect the answer lies in this area.

Hello,

I am dealing with what looks to be the directrdr issue. The difference here is that it is on a Windows 2003 Terminal Server. As all the other postings, I have run numerous scans of SuperAntispyware, MalwareBytes, and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise in both normal and safe modes. I can not get to the root of what is kicking it off after I think I've beat the thing. The difference from reading a lot of the postings is that some of the tools you need me to run do not work with Server 2003 such as DDS. Please advise as to what you would like to see from me. We have been working this problem at the clients location for a week including deep into the night(s) to no avail. Any help you can provide quickly will be much appreciated...

Thank you!

Will this be moved back to the original forum once I am told which specific logs (which run on server 2003) to post?

We have to setup terminal services for about 20 people. Only 10 people will be connected at any time.

Does this mean I only need 10 User CAL's or do I need 20 User CAL's 1 for each connection even though only 10 will be in use at any given time.

I don't want to use Per device because these users jump around.
 

A:Windows 2003 Terminal server CALs

I believe that "per user" is just how many people are connected... Not how many people do connect. That is the way that I always assumed. I know that 2000 didn't care... The licenses were just a piece of paper.

Device-based versus User-based Terminal Server CALs
Two types of Terminal Server Client Access Licenses are available: TS Device CAL or TS User CAL.

• A TS Device CAL permits one device (used by any user) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your servers.

• A TS User CAL permits one user (using any device) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your servers.
You may choose to use a combination of TS Device CALs and TS User CALs simultaneously with the server software.

Is there a way to limit what starts up when a person logs into terminal server on my server? I have services that startup when I initially log in, but everyone that logs in after me says that they are getting messages that these servises can't start because they are already running. Now keep in mind that these are not windows services, they are programs that I have installed for the software that we use.

Any suggestions would be great.

Hello all, I'm a long time lurker but first time poster. I used to consider myself fairly competent in exorcising malware demons from people's PCs (I certainly have enough people bringing them to me for that purpose) but my old tricks don't seem to be keeping pace with the new threats. Recently we had a Zbot outbreak on our network that pointed out glaring security holes in our defenses that existed due to lack of administrative manpower and an ill-advised managerial directive to favor data accessibility and application communication over proper security practices. After three of us losing an entire weekend to isolation, cleanup, and reimaging of servers where necessary we are changing our ways and have all servers running the latest McAfee Virusscan Enterprise with maximum protection, have closed down shares of system volumes, and have a renewed focus on proper security practices.That being said, we are still not completely rid of the Zbot infection. The terminal server upon which we conduct our day to day activities (not online banking for now for obvious reasons) is still attempting to infect the executables of other servers on the network (one in particular seems to be its primary target). The McAfee on-access scanner on that server seems to be detecting and cleaning the infections, but some evil is definitely still at work - in TCPview I can see connections being established with unknown IPs (one of them in Russia) which are definitely not legitimate tra...

Trying to put Office 2010 on a machine running Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2) with Terminal Services.

The machine will be set up so that anyone requiring the usage of Office 2010 can use RDP to log onto the server and use the programs there.

1) Do I need a specific version of Office 2010 to make this work?
2) Is this a violation of the license agreement for Office 2010? (Obviously I care about this less than the first part, but I'd like to know.)

The only reason I ask is because apparently my friend tried to install a version of Office 2010 we had lying around and it apparently gave him some weird error about Terminal Services... haven't seen the error myself but I thought I'd ask before I try this again.

Hi guys,

We have recently upgraded all of our clients machines from XP to Win7 pro. and left all our servers on Win2003 st. edition. While on XP, users were able to connect and print on our terminal server which is running Win2003 but we have been having problems after the clients were upgraded to win7. User's printers are not being redirected now. Im not too sure if this is windows7 with win2003 issue or just HP drivers issue because all the printers are HP. I did try and find most of the HP win7 drivers to isolate the problem and I even downloaded HP univ. drivers but still the printer were not being redirected. What could be the issue here, I'm really confused.

Morning All,

We have a 2003 Terminal Server which keeps blue screening and throwing up Office applications as the cause (usually Word or Outlook)

We have repaired Office, removed and reinstalled, and even formatted the OS to start from scratch, the problem just keeps reappearing at random intervals

We have another Terminal Server set up in exactly the same way (but on different hardware) which is working without problem. The server has been in for years and has only started giving us problems for the past few months

Apologies I couldn't find posting instructions for 2003 so have just copied my windbg output, can anyone see anything other than Office in this?

Outlook is named as the process calling for the stop, but that does not mean it was the cause. A rouge driver that overwrites it's address space into another drive/process's assigned space is usually the cause. Outlook would then call for the stop because it see's the data in that address as corrupt. Or in other words the Office apps are left holding the bag.
Driver verifier would be the next step unless you can isolate a recent driver/program/update install to around the time the stop orders started.

One other thing to mention is that we at TSF like most forums provide free support to home users not to business users.

Hi All,

I have been reading these forums for a long time gleaming help and useful information, but now im in need.... unfortunately I have an issue with a terminal server, this server has approx 35 users using it and it is normally locked down and secure, a week or so ago I had my support guys in making some updates to the server, while making these updates we had Mcafee Enterprise disabled so it would not interfere, during this brief time i had a user ignore my request not to use the server, they logged in and opened an email telling them they had a fedex delivery coming and the label was in the exe provided......

yep you guessed it perfect timing and now the server is infected....

so the problem is that internet explorer on the server is redirecting to weird sites about book cases and porn..

I have used the normal arsenal but have not been able to stop it, (have run malwarebytes and full scans with mcafee they have found a couple bits but have not cured the problem...)

So what is my next course of action? any ideas welcomed :D (including appropriate action to the user....)

Ok, I can normally always clean out our servers that get spy/malware. This is the first time I've not been able to track it down. We got some REAL nasty spyware that disabled netlogon, I actually had to goto the server room and reboot into safemode and uncheck everything in msconfig just to get signed on as an administrator. I used superantispyware and malwarebytes to clean all that mess up. But I'm still stuck in a rut. The terminal server is actually running really well with the exception of a search page redirect. If you goto google.com / bing.com / yahoo.com and search for something like "news", cnn.com will show in the results page, you click the cnn.com link and you are redirected to some other search page like www.clik-me.com/search444.php.hijackthis.log--------------------------------------Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 8:47:45 AM, on 1/18/2010Platform: Windows 2003 SP2 (WinNT 5.02.3790)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16876)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:E:\Documents and Settings\administrator\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\Program Files\IBM\ServeRAID Manager\aqagent.exeC:\Program Files\Common...

We have a Windows 2003 server that is a Terminal Server for branch office and home/remote use. A month or so ago I got a warning from our ISP that somebody had detected remote desktop attempts from our IP address. I ran our virus scanner (Vipre Enterprise) and found nothing, didn't see anything unusual. That weekend, the "deep scan" found something it called "HackTool.Win32.BruteForce" in notepad.exe, "Packed.Win32.Upack(v)" in ippipi.exe, and "Trojan.Win32.Meredrop" in csrss.exe, all in the C:\Windows\system32\ras folder. It also found vnc.exe in that folder.

I looked at the folder and found this: bad.txt, config.ini, FAQ.txt, good.txt, 1321s.txt, 1321s.zip, IP.rar, IP.txt, ipippipi.txt, IPs.zip, libeay32.dll, lo.txt, msvcr71.dll, NEN.txt, p.txt, QTCore3.dll, QTGui4.dll, ras.zip, source.txt, ssleay32.dll, start.bat, vnc.exe, VNC_bypauth.txt, and Winlogo.zip. There was also a Winlogo folder containing: 2Winlogo.zip, Hookmsgina.dll, install.bat, jks.dat, On.reg, pass.txt, ReadLog.bat, readme.txt, Un.reg, Uninstall.bat, and wminotify.dll.

The ".txt" files are mostly either lists of IP addresses, or lists of logon names (admin and variants) and password guesses. Start.bat is hundreds of lines like: vnc.exe -i 62.40.96.0-62.40.127.255 -p 3389 -cT -T 500" I could delete (I copied first) the entire thing except wminotify.dll.

Hi guys,

I'm at my wits end with this problem with a client of mine.

Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 running Terminal Services was infected with a few spyware and the consrv.dll virus.

The server was running on an ESXi 4.1 Host, I made a copy and it's running in a sandbox environment to try to help and troubleshoot.

It has 4 processors, 250gb Intel X25-m G2 SSD as the hdd and 8gigs of ram allocated to it. It's extremely fast logging in, booting up and running apps.

Removed what I think is everything using a combination of spybot s&d, superantispyware, Kaspersky and finally Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Security (Microsoft Security Essentials for enterprise).

Monitored outgoing network connections on our firewall to make sure that there was no rogue rootkit still connecting to the internet. The new problem we have now is the Server will not gravefully log off sessions all the time. RDP sessions will log off sometimes, other times will hang on nearly every process (explorer.exe, rdpclip.exe, etc). If logging onto the console session, initiating a logoff will sometimes hang and every rdp session will hang till the console session times out and logs off.

I've done everything including turning off every non-microsoft service, disabling printer spooler (terminal server troubleshooting), creating new user profiles to test it out and I've been working with Microsoft support for the last week with no real progress.

I would like to fix this problem instead of ... Read more

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 just upgraded to Windows 2003 server for my domain controller, and am in the process of adding users. But I am having a problem.

Whenever I try to complete the 'add a user' routine, I am told that their password doesn't meet the security policy settings. I've checked and double checked all the security policy settings for passwords (both locally and domain wide), and everything should be working. Do I have to reboot or something? That would be odd for a server....

Help please!
 

A:Adding a user in Windows 2003 Server

Windows 2003 Server employs the complex password policy, this means the password must be of a certain length (think its 6) and not based on the user’s account name. It must contain three of the following:
Uppercase characters
Lowercase characters
Arabic numerals
Nonalphanumeric characters
Try this and see if this allows you to create a user, by default the strong password policy is disabled, so it may have been enabled somewhere along the line. If not post back!

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?
 

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

Okay what are the steps needed to make the new Windows 2003 server take over all roles that the old 2003 server had? Here is the scenario. I have 1 2003 server this was really only a glorified desktop but it served its purpose. It was the only Server on the domain in a single domain/single site scenario. I now have had a second 2003 server built And I have it added into the domain. I setup all the same functions DNS Server, Domain Controller - Active Directory, File server and print server.

With Server 1 turned off and Server 2's IP changed to the IP of Server 1 the clients are pulling DNS from the PC's in the domain do work fine I.E. log in fine authenticate have full control over the shares they should, have internet browing.

The problem is that Server 2 (only when Server 1 is turned off) is not able to populate all the active directory objects (I mean it shows the item but it is greyed out and gives some errors about a Global Catalog Server not being available). Why am I geting this if both PC's are setup as Active Directory domain controllers?

Please explain this and let me know what else I have to ensure to do before pulling off this original Windows 2003 server so far I have the following done -

Shares from Server 1 recreated on Server 2 - Check
Server 2 is now configured as the DNS Server and functioning just fine - Check

A:Added ones Windows 2003 Server want to remove old 2003 server.

This sounds tricky alright. I did the MCSE exams on AD and Windows 2000 server etc, from what I can remember there is only one Global Catalog server in the network. So I assume that when you set up the first server it assumed this role for the network. BUT when you add the second server this finds that there is already a Global Catalog server and does not assume this role itself.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...03/all/techref/en-us/W2K3TR_Ad_dctrl_over.asp
"The first domain controller in a forest is automatically created as a global catalog server. Thereafter, you can designate other domain controllers to be global catalog servers if they are needed."

I would try to promote your 2nd server to a Global Catlog server and see if this resolves the issues.

J

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.
System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003

Only servers running a Windows Server 2003 operating system can be monitored using Emergency Management Services. For additional hardware and software requirements, please consult the chapter.

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

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.
