  1. I use EasyBCD. Allows you to add any ISO and it modifies the BCD store for you. Works quite well.
  2. My company is still going to be using XP for a while and when a Windows profile becomes corrupted, I have been recovering one of two ways. 1. restart computer to unlock the profile. log in as an administrator on the machine. rename the corrupted profile. log out. have user log in to create new profile, then move over contents of desktop, favorites, my documents and pst files in local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook. 2. restart computer to unlock the profile. log in as an administrator on the machine. rename the ntuser.dat to ntuser.bak. copy ntuser.dat from default user profile to corrupted user profile. log out, have client log back in. files are still there, but settings are all lost. For a while I've been trying to find a utility that will do this for me, or do it better. Or if Microsoft had some official way that is better/faster. All I have found is a procedure that seems to apply to non domain computers, which doesn't help me. Does anyone have any ideas?
  3. we are currently using exchange 2003 and outlook clients versions 2002 and 2003. I looked up some Microsoft articles about using a prf file, but if i push that out every time, then it will keep making new profiles every time someone signs on to the same computer.
  4. I don't know about removal, but I use the following script to install network printers. Dim net Set net = CreateObject("WScript.Network") net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\printer" Dim net1 Set net1 = CreateObject("WScript.Network") net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\printer2" save this as a vbs file. also, if you want to have multiple printers in the same file, dim net2 for the next printer, dim net3, and so on. these are just variables that need different names and values. i hope i explained this well....
  5. I just setup login scripts for my company so that drives are mapped upon logon as well as printers are install via vbs files. I'd like to automate Outlook profile creation, but I can't seem to find a lot of information on this. What is the best way to go about this? I'd like to avoid purchasing third party software if possible, my company can't spend a lot of money on this. Thanks!
  6. I need to import an ACT database to Exchange. The ACT database is in comma separated value format. I have changed the column headers to reflect what csvde.exe can understand and have imported a few sample contacts. Problem is that these contacts don't show up in the GAL unless I right click each one, left click Exchange tasks, then establish a mailbox using the wizard. I have a total of seven thousand contacts I need to import. So I'd rather not have to set up each mailbox individually as it would take a long time. Can somebody help me here? edit: got wrong forum. can a mod move this for me?
  7. The switch was successful. Thanks for all the help!
  8. Ok thanks guys. I'll notate all of this and give it a go tomorrow. Sounds like I'll need to take a 12 pack of Jolt with me.
  9. I am not upgrading. I wish it was that easy. This is going to be a completely new machine. That is why I'm not completely sure what steps I will need to take.
  10. Can you explain this more? It sounds to me like you have 15 cellular phones connected to a server. Is this correct? Or are you using a modem bank with 15 analog lines connected to the server?
  11. I believe it holds all the FSMO roles. It has DHCP, DNS but no WINS. I think the only part I don't understand is the FSMO roles. I am currently studying to attain my MCSE, but I haven't gotten that far yet. I am familiar with DHCP, DNS, but not the Active Directory part.
  12. Hello. I have to replace a Windows 2000 Server domain controller with Windows Server 2003. Can somebody help me with what steps I will need to take? There are 2 other domain controllers on the domain.
  13. I have an Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard. Windows XP Pro. I have configured wake on lan in the bios and in XP. On the properties page of the network adapter in the device manager, I go to the power management tab and check Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby. and Only allow management stations to bring the computer out of standby. Then I put the computer in standby. everything shuts off including the fans, so I know the computer is in S3. When trying to use RDC to remotely wake, then access the computer, it does not wake. I have to send a WOL packet to wake it up, then use RDC. If I remove the check from Only allow management stations to bring the computer out of standby. then I can wake the computer using only RDC, but if I don't use RDC immediately, something else is waking the computer and I don't know what it is. Sometimes it immediately wakes back up. Sometimes it takes a few minutes. I thought the problem was coming from one of my usb devices, so I found a registry hack to suppress any usb devices from waking the computer. [HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\usb] "USBBIOSx"=dword:00000000 After this was enabled, when I put the computer into standby, nothing would wake it, even pressing the power button. Then I downloaded dumppo.exe from the ftp.microsoft.com site and ran dumppo.exe ac It provided a lot of output and the minimum and maximum power state to be S3. Can RDC even wake the computer from S3, or will I need to use a WOL packet every time?
  14. I had this same problem, but I got the admin folder from an enterprise version of office and put it in the same directory as my retail office files. now the office customization tool runs fine. if there are no objections to me doing this, i could host the admin folder for those of you who want it.
  15. i don't believe this is possible. RDC is setup like this by design. why don't you use remote assistance instead?
