  1. I am running Windows server 2003 32bit standard edition w/SP3. This server is running as a domain controller with Active directory installed . I would like to move this domain controller to a new server that is running Windows server 2008 enterprise edition R2 64bit. But I need to know if there is any major issues for making this kind of move to the new server. Also I was hoping someone could give me a basic step by step for me to read up on before I make this happen. I have been doing some reading online and I really can't find a cut and dry answer for configuring the new server to be the new domain controller. The old domain controller is not hosting DHCP. I want to shut the other one down because its old and has seen its time as a Domain controller. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very greatful with any help I couuld get. Thanks,
  2. Thanks Allen2 for all your help. I will let you know how the trial version of TerminalWorks TSPrint works for me and if it is easy to use or not.
  3. Thanks again for getting back to me and explaining the way it works. I was looking at a program called TSPrint have you ever used it.. TerminalWorks TSPrint http://www.terminalworks.com/tsprint.php I was going to give it try and see if that program would be easier to use. Let me know what you think.....
  4. I guess the way it works is when the person connects to the Terminal Server the Terminal Server must have the Printer loaded on the Terminal server that matches the persons Local Printer that is connected. That way if the person wants to print from an application on the Terminal Server to his local machine they can do so. So person Prints and the Terminal Server knows that Printer driver is loaded on the server and knows how to handle that remote Printer for the Remote user. Is that correct???? Thanks,
  5. Thanks So much for the help , I will take a look at all options, But I think it would best for me to load the 64 bit drivers because I only have about 5 different printers to get working I think. Question can I load the 64 bit driver and the add 86bit drivers later for users that connect with 32bit printers.
  6. I have a Windows 2003 R2 server 64bit that hosts Terminal Services. When a user connects using Remote desktop connection I make sure that they go to the options area and make sure they turn on Printers in local devices and resources. But everytime they connect and open the application such as Peachtree accounting software and try to print to thier local printer they are unable to print. I was hoping someone could give me the steps to have a person print to thier local printer when connected to the Terminal server and printing from that application. The one person that I would like to get printing is a person that has a HP Laserjet 1320n.But would like to get everyones printers working as well. Thanks,
  7. For some time now I have been noticing that some computers on the network are slow viewing web sites and some are very fast reguardless of the CPU speed. I can hardwire the computers to the network and still same as being on the wireless. But some comupters with the same specs are a 100 times more faster on the exact same network line that I had the slow computer on. I have noticed that some of the older Mac computers are really the ones that are having the trouble viewing websites fast and some are not. I do use the same network line for testing that is a Gig line to make sure its not the network line. I have even connected the computers direct to the cable modem to bypass local network and still the same results. I have even formatted the hard drives and reloaded some of them to see if it would make a difference and I get the same results. I know that these computers that are slow have been very fast viewing websites before. Also when I go to local network share locations and transfer files they go FAST all the time. I was wondering if anyone could help with this problem. I was thinking maybe its the MTU settings. the MTU settings on the Mac computers is set to 1500. If anyone could help me please respond to this post ASAP. THANKS!!!!
  8. Thanks for the help, I will look and see if this can help....
  9. Hello Everyone, I was hoping that someone could help me out with finding a few good word doc templates for Computer Maintenance Plans and Repair.I have been looking on the web but really didn't find anything that is good and solid.So if anyone has any that they would like to share please let me know ASAP. Thanks, Deploysrs
  10. Everything seemed to work Perfect so Thanks for the great Reply...
  11. Can anyone tell me if this sounds correct using two Network Cards. I have a computer that is still running Windows 2000 and is connected to the local Network with network Card1. I want to keep Card1 as it is and then add a Second network Card2.Card1 is not configured with settings to get to the ISP but is configured to connect to the local lan. But I would like to configure network Card2 with the proper settings so the computer can get to the web using internet explorer. So if I add the info from the ISP that they gave me to Card2 then I should be able to get to the WEB fine. And then also at the same time I should be able to get to the local network still because I still have Card1 still configured for the local Lan Network.
  12. I finally had to rebuild the server. After I posted for help the Server would not even allow the Domain admin to logon not even the local admin.But I would like to thank you for your post. It sounds like you were correct with losing the trust relationship with the Domain.I will start to look at why this happened in the first place so it won't happen again. Thanks!!!!!!!!
  13. I have a Windows Server 2008 standard R2 running that is joined to my Domain. On that same server I have a few folders being shared. I just noticed today that I get this error when trying to connect ( \\ is not accessiable.You must not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain Failed.) I heard that if I join the server to a WORKGROUP and then join it back to the domain that should fix the problem. But I was hoping if there is a better way so I don't have to re-create all my shares and permissions again. If anyone could help please right back ASAP, Thanks everyone..
  14. Thanks FAT64 I will give it a try and I will let you know how it works out......
  15. I have one Domain Controller on the network and that is it. I also have no servers connected to that Domain. Plus I have only 8 users connected to that Domain. I would like to change the Static IP of the Domain Controller from to after I make the change on the router to match new address range, My question, What are the steps that I would have to know to make the change to a different IP address range? The reason why I want to change the network IP range is because when people connect with Routing and Remote access VPN. The Ip address is the same as all default IP that routers have at home. So people can connect to the VPN but are unable to view share on the network at the office because when they look for a share it looks local on thier network instead of the office network. So when I change the default IP address range to something else it will work. Any help would be great !!!!!
  16. First thing you can do is go to each workstation and staticly set the DNS to point to That way each workstation knows where to look for the Domain controller to logon. Also in DNS you should have the IP address pointing to itself for starters and thats it ( Then do you have DHCP running on the router or do you have it running on the Domain controller. If you have it on the router then put in the IP address of the Domain controller in the Primary DNS and the IP address of the ISP in the Secondary DNS. That way the workstations look at the Primary first and then the secondary to get out to the internet.
  17. Thanks I will try that And I will let you know how I make out. Thanks, Deploysrs
  18. I got an e-mail the other day in outlook 2007 from a person I know that had a PDF file attached. I can open it fine but everytime I try to print it freezes up my printer spooler. Then I can not delete the file out from the spooler on an XP machine. And when I try it on a Vista machine it does the same thing but completely removes all my printer. The only way that I can add printers back in is to boot into safe mode and then delete the spooler and driver files. Then I can boot back normal and add files back in. This problem only happens when I try to printing a pdf file only from this person and just a few other people. If I get a pdf file from any other person it seems to work fine. So I was wondering would anyone know why this happens and why when printing a PDF would it crash out the spooler so bad.
  19. I have Routing and remote access running on the Office Domain controller. DHCP is only running on the router and not the DC with an IP address range of thru I reserved a range of Ip addresses for routing and remote access to always use thru But I notice when someone from home connects they can not connect to any of the shared locations on our network. I noticed that its because they are using the same network ips and subnet as our office is. So when they look for a share that is on the network it looks locally on their network and not on our office network. So I wanted to change our network IP address to be like maybe thur . So when people connect to our network it won't be the same as their home default router IP addresses. Is there anyone that can tell me how to resolve this issue differently and if so give steps on how to change it. And if I was going to change the Ip Address range on our network at the office how would it effect the domain controller and 4 other windows 2003 servers on the same network as well. I just want to find out a very direct correct way to resolve this problem if someone can give me a step-by-step to follow. Thanks
  20. I have one domain controller running DNS and Routing and remote access, Plus 4 servers each running Win 2003. I also have 45 workstations connected to the same domain. DCHP running on Router only.... My question is this, I just added a new Router and cable internet but I had to add a Primary Static DNS # in the router for my ISP. Also I added in my Domain controllers DNS # also as the secondary. But now I notice that if everyone doesn't add the DNS # of the Domain controller in thier Network settings then the internet will go slow. But this becomes a problem because we have a lot of people that have laptops that can't have a Static DNS # because when they are on the road they can't get internet connection unless they remove the static DNS#. I thought that the router should automaticlly give out the proper info Via DHCP running on the router. So what can I do to make sure the internet runs fast even when people don't have a static DNS #??????
  21. I have a few Web sites at my office that connect to SQL2000 and have a Database. I also have a basic website timesheet system that a web developer made that we use at the office. The time sheet system is also connected to the SQL2000 server. I would like to backup and then move to a different server. But the only problem is I am not very good at SQL. I can make small changes to tables and run very basic backups but thats it. The one problem I have is if I move the timesheet system to a different server that everyone could still login to it. I do know that the timesheet system does not look at Active Directory to login. I know that you have to go into a table called employees and and and remove user if needed. So my big question is there a application I can get that can make this task easy for me to move or backup everything in SQL2000 standard server? If not could someone tell me the steps to backup and move everything to a different server in very basic Step by step instructions? Thanks....
  22. Thanks, fizban2 I called of course Comcast and they said that there was nothing they could do to help cut down on the hops to get to that location. So it looks like I am stuck with the amount of hops it takes from comcast over to pointroll.com. I tought maybe I could add someting to my DNS on my domain controller to help give me a better direct hop. But I guess after it goes to comcast it really gets out of my hands to controll. Thanks for your help and if you have any other idea please let me know. Thx, Deploysrs
  23. I have a Windows 2003 domain controller at the Office. I have Business end Cable for internet With very good Badwidth 25000kbps for download and 2kbps on the upload. My Web developer and other employees are having a problem at this site called pointroll where we create our banners for web sites. When they do a rollover on a banner its should trigger that banner to display instantly. But when they try to display that banner in house at the office it doesn't trigger that banner but if we go home and try it it works fine. I did do a tracert on www.pointroll.com and it looks like it takes a little more time then nornal to get to pointroll. Here is the tracert that I get, take a look. Is there anyway that I can add point roll or rackspace to my DNS or something like that to have my Domain controller resolve them directly to help limit the hop time????? And if so what are the steps to getting that done. C:\>tracert www.pointroll.com Tracing route to www.pointroll.com [] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 50 ms 14 ms 16 ms 2 64 ms 57 ms 68 ms ge-2-2-ur02.hillsboro.nj.panjde.comcast.net [68. 86.219.169] 3 78 ms 84 ms 119 ms 4 16 ms 16 ms 9 ms po-10-ur02.longhill.nj.panjde.comcast.net [68.85 .192.234] 5 17 ms 15 ms 22 ms pos-0-4-0-0-crs01.plainfield.nj.panjde.comcast.n et [] 6 34 ms 27 ms 26 ms pos-0-3-0-0-cr01.newyork.ny.ibone.comcast.net [6] 7 49 ms 59 ms 61 ms xe-10-2-0.edge1.newyork2.level3.net [ ] 8 13 ms 16 ms 12 ms ae-33-89.car3.newyork1.level3.net [] 9 24 ms 15 ms 12 ms att-level3-oc192.newyork1.level3.net [ 50] 10 65 ms 99 ms 74 ms tbr1.n54ny.ip.att.net [] 11 111 ms 128 ms 148 ms cr2.n54ny.ip.att.net [] 12 75 ms 58 ms 55 ms cr2.wswdc.ip.att.net [] 13 94 ms 91 ms 80 ms cr1.attga.ip.att.net [] 14 62 ms 58 ms 61 ms cr2.dlstx.ip.att.net [] 15 68 ms 65 ms 63 ms tbr2.dlstx.ip.att.net [] 16 85 ms 116 ms 99 ms 17 75 ms 79 ms 104 ms 18 95 ms 202 ms 214 ms vlan901.core1.dfw1.rackspace.com [] 19 128 ms 157 ms 141 ms aggr123a.dfw1.rackspace.net [] 20 159 ms 134 ms 147 ms Trace complete.
