  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?
  16. I am also experiencing this problem. Windows XP PRO SP 2 did not use nlite when logging in, all i get is wallpaper. no icons, no taskbar. and it seems to be intermittent. if i bring up task manager and end the explorer process, then rerun it, then the taskbar and icons appear. I'd like to avoid reinstalling/repairing windows. If anyone has anymore suggestions, please post them!
  17. I agree it is bad of Vista to do this. however, microsoft probably won't be reading these boards. why don't you submit this to microsoft and they can perhaps make a change to the OS?
  18. I was browsing my c:\windows directory and there is a ton of .log files. a majority of them are from hotfixes. is it safe for me to delete all log files from the drive? thanks in advance.
  19. i rented this from blockbuster and beat it in 4 days. maybe 10 hours overall of gameplay on normal difficulty. it's a cool game to go along with the matrix mythology, but definitely don't buy unless you are a huge fan of the matrix. anybody else play this?
  20. i'm not sure if you can even set this option in apache. i am pretty sure this is an issue with dns. where are you hosting this website?
  21. i don't think you understood. chmod 777 on a *nix system means that that particular file is set for everyone to have full access. so you have to translate chmod 777 to the windows equivalent and set those permissions on the file/folder. for instance, if you were instructed to chmod 777 index.html, then in windows, you would right click on index.html and go to the permissions section. then you would give the everyone group full access to the file. here is a link to a site that will help you understand chmod and then using the examples you can figure out the windows equivalent permissions for the different chmods. http://catcode.com/teachmod/index.html
  22. i'm glad you got it working. have fun with apache, it's a great web server.
  23. chmod is just the permissions of the file/directory. chmod 777 would be writable by anyone. i forget the meanings of the different chmods, but you can find those on the web somewhere. you can still use iis, but just know when it says chmod 777 or something, set the equal permissions in windows on that file/directory. it will work the same.
  24. i am password protecting a directory with an .htaccess file. here is the code in the .htaccess : AuthType Basic AuthName Proxy AuthUserFile /var/www/passwd/password AuthGroupFile /var/www/passwd/group Require group Group i have the password and group files setup correctly, and the password protection works great. But, i'd like to have the password prompt everytime. Right now, if i access this particular directory, put in the login info, and surf around in the directory it works great. if i close my browser and open it back up, go to this directory, it doesn't ask for password again. the only way i can get it to ask is if i clear my temp files and cookies. is my apache server automatically spitting out cookies or something?
  25. In the section that says remove Indexes so that you see this: then save the httpd.conf and restart the services. i tested on my apache server and it worked. when you have indexes turned off, apache auto generates an error page saying you don't have access. when turned on, it shows the index of the files in the directory.
