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

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

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...

Preferred Solution: Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

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.)

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.

Hiya

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 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).

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,

I have an old ACER EasyStore H340, which figured out it should crash on me the other day.
In the unit I have 4 HD's, 1 for OS and 3 for DATA.

I have done restore (not factory reset) on the unit earlier, and that has been successfull. However I never had the amount of data on it as I do now.
So in a mildly panicked state, I need to restore again.

I started with that yesterday, and restore seems to be OK, but when the WHS v1 connector software shows after restore, it's just hanging and do not continue the installation so I can set a password on the unit.

So my questions are:
1) Would the connector software struggle due to my Windows 10 Technical Preview version?
2) Does it make sense to remove data disks, restore and put in data disk when done? If possible for WHS to reckongnize the data drives afterwards
3) Am I screwed?
tl;dr - Server recovery WHSv1 doesnt complete, and hangs when Connector software is about to be installed on Client computer.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have just removed a bogus antivirus prog from a pc.
The prob is not caused by remnants of this program.
since doing so the pc takes ages to boot up. (about 20 mins.)
The problem is with the 'server' service.
If i disable this service the pc starts correctly, but other computers on the network cannot access this machine.
This computer is used for the storage of any files used on the network.
The computer boots fine in safe mode, even with this service running.
I have deleted all 'blind' network shares.
I have run sfc, checkdisk, installed sp3, windows is up to date.

Has anyone any ideas how to rectify this problem so that the server service can be started automatically again??

To resolve this issue, edit the registry to make the Spooler service dependent on the Server service. If you do so, the Spooler service does not start until the Server service is running.

To create this dependency: 1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
3. Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler
4. Click Add Value on the Edit menu.
5. Type DependOnService in the Value Name box.
6. Click REG_MULTI_SZ in the Data Type box, and then click OK.
7. Type LanmanServer in the Data box, and then click OK.
8. Click Exit on the Registry menu to quit Registry Editor.
9. Restart your computer.

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 sport404 and welcome to TSF,

I'm not seeing anything in your log, but HijackThis is only one of many tools we can use to detect the presence of any malware.

Please download the following programs to a removable media device and install on the problem PC:

Adaware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Go to this Site to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. Also make sure to Customize the settings in Adaware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Spybot Search & Destroy Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available.Now click Mode menu and choose 'Advanced Mode'. Next click on Immunize to your left. Click the Immunize button on top to Immunize your computer - you should do this each time there is an update. Click ?Check for Problems? and fix all the entries, which are indicated in RED. Do NOT enable Spybot TeaTimer Resident protection at this time. What this will do is monitor any system/registry changes and will ask you for permission to change any of these settings. It may also hinder our fix at this point. You may enable it after the fix is complete.

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

Every time I try to PXE boot to the server it Downloads the WDSNBP file and then starts using DHCP referral.

I have a second WDS that works fine. The client sits on the same DHCP server so the DHCP setting are identical, apart from the boot server host name.
 
The only difference that I can see is that one has AD delegation rights and the other one doesn't, does that make any difference?

A:No response from Windows Deployment Services server

This might have been addressed already but here's what I did to fix this issue.
1.  Stop the Windows Deployment Services Server service.
2.  Navigate to the Mgmt directory under RemoteInstall.  In my case D:\RemoteInstall\Mgmt
3.  Create a directory called backup and move the contents of the Mgmt directory into the backups folder.
4.  Restart the Windows Deployment Services Server service.  This will regenerate the files that were in the Mgmt directory.
5.  Once the service is back up and running test and make sure you do not receive the error any more.
Hope this helps.

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.

Hello my name is Adam. I am a desktop/lan admin for a warehouse supply company in New York. We run a strictly Windows 2000 domain with about 70 computers and maybe 3 or 4 Windows XP machines. I recently enabled a Terminal Services Server to allow 3 or 4 of my users to run database intensive Apps on the server.

The app freezes up to do its job and the user is left with nothing to do because they cant touch the app until its done.

You can also use the deployment guidelines in this book to extend your core network infrastructure by deploying a network access infrastructure supporting a variety of network access methods, including dial-up, virtual private network (VPN), wireless, and switch access. You can provide centralized authentication, authorization, auditing, and accounting for all of these network access types by using Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS).

I have windows server 2003 running terminal services, and when I remote desktop to it - this is what happens

1st connect - everything's fine, runs smoothly
2nd conect - message "could not connect to remote computer, check connections..."
3rd connect - "the remote computer ended the connection"

Help me. I am going out of my mind. I have to restart the server everytime this happens.

I regularly need to connect to the server, and its very annoying.
Cheers

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.
 

A:Office 2010 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 machine with Terminal Services

Not sure about 2003, but with 2008 the Volume License Enterprise version of office is required.
Investigate that aspect. we tried installing office pro 2007 on our TS with Windows 2008 and it balked so i did some research and there are several posts that said it had to be VL Ent.

I have a Dell 8300 with 1.2G Ram and 30G HD. I want to change the OS from Windows XP Home to Windows Server 2003. I have started the installation and the screen is on the one showing the existing partition and unpartitoned space on the computer:

29322 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi [MBR]

-: Partition1 [FAT] 31 MB < 24 MB free >
C: Partition2 [NTFS] 29298 MB < 24985 MB free >

Should I delete both partitions? I want the hard drive as clean as possible. I plan to try many of the services such as IIS. I will install SQL Server 2000, Visual Studio 2003 .NET. I probably will buy another hard drive (80G or more) as a second drive later on. For now, how should I partition the 30G HD?
Thank you for any suggestion.

Hi Guys,

I have Win7 Home Premium 32bit on my Laptop. I heard about installing Win 2008 Server(Not Windows Server 2008 R2 bcoz its 64bit and my Win7 is 32bit)on vhd in Win7.
My first question is, can I install Win server 2008 on vhd in Win7 HP 32bit. or I need other versions of Win7 like Professional or Ultimate. I tried installing Win Svr 2008 on vhd in Win7 Hp 32bit but did not work, this is what i did:

Created a new fixed size/extnedable vhd in win 7, initialized and attached the vhd. Then put win server 2008 dvd and ran setup inside win7, it asked me where to istall. I selected the newly created and formatted vhd drive(F). But it says load vhd HBA driver, i tired to find the driver online, in win7 and win svr 2008 cd but no joy. I dont know wether, win svr 2008 can be installed on a vhd in win7 Hp. I read online how to isntall win svr 2008 r2 on win7 ulitimate, by pressing SHIFT+F10 at install time and then doing something in diskpart and then doing dual boot with win7.

Do i need to updgrae my win 7 to professional or ultimate to accomplish this job or there is way to do with win7 HP. as vhd is just virtual, can any windows version be istalled on vhd.

My main thing i need is having Windows 7 as main OS and dual boot with win svr 2008 which is on vhd.

Please help me with this. I will highly appreciate your kind help.

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

Ok so my original computer was a Windows 7 Home Premium and that's the PC I used to work. I had REMOTE DESKTOP on it, it worked fine and yes it was a Windows 7 Home Premium..but yesterday my original pc got fried and smoke came out of it so I am afraid to turn it on.

I am now using my back pc, it is also a windows 7 home premium build 7600, and I remember I use to have remote desktop on it but I right clicked disabled one day a long time ago and after that I was never ever able to get it back. Ive been reading online that Windows 7 home premium does not have the remote desktop option, odd because my other pc had it. Point is.. I need to connect to my job's server asaaap, but I am unable to find a way to connect to their server, I have their ip address and a special login/pass the same way you do in windows remote desktop.

I have tried downloading those rdp patches and stuff and it just does not work! I cannot find the remote desktop anywhere even have the install said "listening" and "remote desktop successfully" etc etc.

Is there a program I can use to connect to my work's server..my boss uses windows 7 remote desktop,,,

I tried using teamviewer and added the ip address but it doesnt work idk if you have to both be using the same program..please in need of help here :/

I apologize now if this is the wrong are to post this. Did not see anywhere better for it. I'm attempting to install Windows Home Server. I downloaded the demo from Microsoft to try it out before spending the money on it if I didn't like it. However after the initial windows is loading files screen, it comes up with the loading screen with the green bouncing bars. after that goes away it just sits there with a blank screen.

If anyone has any ideas on why this might be, please let me know.

I just read about this new OS on Digg. Apparently Windows Home Server is available on Newegg for sale. My first thought on this is WOW, just wow. $180 for ANOTHER windows OS. I will agree that it appears VERY user friendly, as it should with such a price tag. Now, I posted this for two reasons. One, I'm wondering what everyone else thinks about this. And two, my first thoughts upon seeing this were; what are all the capabilities of Ubuntu Server and FreeNAS? Since I've been tinkering with open source for a long time but have always remained a noob (I've never really had an extensive experience) I'm not completely aware of all the possibilities of the open source servers and if they have the ability to automate windows backups. So what does everyone think about this new WinHoSo (Windows Home Server)? (doesn't Windows 2003 Server, etc have these abilities as well?) Could FreeNAS or Ubuntu Server be setup to handle these tasks easily (without expert open source installation experience)?

I'm eager to hear everyone's opinions..

With the release of Home server RC the other day I though it was time I loaded it up and put it through its paces.

Although still unsure if I actualy need a home server I thought I would install it on the right kit from the start.

Server:-
IBM xSeries206
P4 3gig
1gig Memory
300gig SATA Western Digital Drive

So with a very lighter wallet, I start the installation.

The setup took around 40mins and used the same type of installer as Vista, so far so good. After the installation was completed it promts me for a supidly strong password, reboots and its ready to go

I spend the next half hour adding drivers and setting up my nework shares though the very simple "Windows Home server console"

Now it is finaly time to run the Home server connector software on my PC, I connect in to the servers network shares and go to the software folder then run the setup.......



Oh dear, none of the PC's in my house have a 32bit OS and havent for the past few years

Just WTF are microsoft thinking, their new flagship product stuck in the 32bit past. Very disapointing Microsoft very disapointing.

A:Windows Home Server

In many post in the official Windows Home Server forum, Microsoft employees have announced that Windows Vista 64 bit support could be something in v1, but don't expect this to be actually released until v2.

Very disappointing indeed

Anyone else install the beta version of this yet?

I installed this under my Virtual PC 2007 Beta, and had a few problems with the installation.

Besides being a toned down version of Small Business Server 2003 (as shown during the setup!), it also attempts to activate the software (why it does this on a BETA I don't know) during the installation, and makes several attempts to make me realize that it will be formatting my drive and I will lose all data.

Uh, I would not have chosen "new installation" if I wanted to keep my data... plus this is a VPC, so it never really got rid of all my data.

Your thoughts?

Hi. Not sure if this is the right place to post ths topic. Acer Easy store home server is on order - delivery imminent. It uses Windows Home Server which has a useful feature for back up and HD failure called Drive Extender. Microsoft has announded that it is cancelling this feature in the next version of WHS, due out in 2011. Does this have implications for me, considering I have bought the current version of WHS; in other words, I won't upgade. The reason I ask is that people seem to suggest a dark future since Microsoft "won't support" the current version in the future. Thanks! Daniel
