  1. Yes, there is a little work that needs to be done before I can use the solution(s) mentioned above for them to work, but I'm going to try them out asap. Many thanks for your help.
  2. No. They are not a part of any domains. The policies are applied using a local script. I can't access even the admin shares of those computers from a central servers and psexec will not connect to those servers. But I can access shared folders in a central server from those computers. I use psexec on a daily basis so I know what that is, but cmdkey was something new because I never had to utilize it before. Since psexec cannot connect to those computers, I canNOT have a copy of cmdkey in a network share to run it. These computers are quite complicated and I have just started supporting these, so I dont know what works and what doesnt. Truth. Edit: About the links you have mentioned to my previous post: The first one about ASP, I was fighting with the same application team asking them to create a proper 'Logoff' option instead of just a javascript to close the browser window when they click on 'Close' link. I wasnt sure where the passwords would get saved for a page that uses AD authentication. If it was an external website, it would store a cookie, so deleting them would be easier, but this one isnt. So that post was for me to understand where the passwords would get saved. Ideally, THAT application team are the ones who are supposed to fix it.
  3. I don't have a deadline. I am trying to make my own work easier. I don't have to explain which team deals with what and why I am in this situation. I asked you a technical question and you are talking about my work place and what they are supposed to do. Was that necessary? Who wasted time?
  4. Yup, exactly why I am here to ask questions and learn. Why the heck would I come here if I knew everything? If there was an issue answering, you need not have even answered. You had to Google to know where I work to reply? LOL.
  5. Dayum. Ok. And nope... I unfortunately will not be able to make any changes to the computers like adding/removing registry keys or files as we have over 14,000 computers across our estate. Making even a small change will need a "Change" raised and run I have to around for approvals etc (which I am sure I will not get). Pain in the a**. Shit situation, right?
  6. LOL, sorry. We have loads of computers that run on Windows XP Embedded. They are used by 'customers' to access several applications. A few applications are just web pages over the intranet which uses AD authentication. These people, when they access the webpage, are prompted to enter their domain credentials. They also end up checking the box to remember the passwords though they aren't supposed to since there are other people who login to the same page with their own credentials. The group policy denies them access to almost everything. So they cant even see the desktop. Just an interface with a list of applications they can click to access. Hence, we log on to those computers and delete the passwords manually using the method I mentioned in the original post. cmdkey is the exactly what I need, but unfortunately doesn't work on Windows XP machines. I cant use psexec either since the command doesn't exist. I wanted to know if there is a cmdkey equivalent for XP.
  7. There are quite a few people who end up 'remembering' the passwords when they sign on to a web application that uses AD authentication, though they are not supposed to. So my team ends up getting tickets for the passwords to be cleared. What we need to do is go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage Network Passwords and then remove the password that is saved. I would like to know if there is any way of getting this done via command line since it would be easier for us to login via telnet and run those commands. Any help would be awesome. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi all, Question: Where are the cookies saved for a website made with ASP that uses AD authentication and if the website will have any control over deleting the cookies to close the session? Reason for the question and the actual issue: I support Windows servers and there is an application team who have made a website with ASP that uses AD authentication for users. Problem now is that the users select "Remember Password" when they are not supposed to. The website does not have a 'Sign Out' option but just a javascript to close the browser instead when clicked on 'Close'. I have been suggested to remove the option for users to 'Remember Password' from the registry instead of they adding an option to sign out that deletes the cookies. They say that Windows Authentication does not give the website builder any control over the cookies and is taken care of by IIS. Is this true? I thought what they said was wrong and they should have all the control over the cookies and delete them to close a session. Need some help here please
  9. Thanks for your help. There were bad blocks in the hard drive and chkdsk had deleted several files. I had to re-install the operating system unfortunately.
  10. Hi people. I need some help here please. One of our servers, an HP ML310 G5 started rebooting on a loop for no reason after the Windows Server 2003 splash screen. It was the same when I tried booting in safe mode. It rebooted after it loaded acpitabl.dat. We then replaced the motherboard assuming it was the mobo fault as this had happened a few times before. Now, even after the mobo was replaced, it was rebooting at the exact same place. I then booted the server from a Win 2k3 CD and ran 'chkdsk /r' on C drive from the Recovery Console. This found and fixed 1 error and sorted the boot loop issue and the server now boots back into the OS, to the desktop. This is when the bigger problem started. 1) Not all services are starting though they are set to automatic. Another weird part is 'Extended' part of services wont load. I have to select 'Standard'. I can see which services are started/not started etc, but when I double click on any service, it doesnt not bring up the dialog box where I can disable the service etc. 2) Similar issue when I enter eventvwr. I cant open any of the logs though I can see them. Tried Enter button, double click AND right-click > Properties and it still wont work. 3) Again a similar issue with Device Manager. I can see the devices, but I can see the properties. Nothing comes up again. 4) There are 2 NICs in the server and NIC 2 is disabled. But ncpa.cpl wont show up anything tough Device Manager shows up the NICs. I honestly dont know where to start the troubleshooting from. Any help would be great.
  11. Hi.. I seem to have a problem with one of my servers where the system freezes and restarts when I check for Users or Groups under Computer Management or nothhing shows up in either users or groups. However, net user and net localgroup shows up all the groups. Not sure what exactly has gone wrong after one of the hard drives was replaced from the array. One more thing is, I was wondering WHERE is the users and groups information is stored. If it is somewhere in the registry or somewhere else as a file (just in case if I can get them replaced).
  12. @gelome I have tried it on both the Windows I have installed on my hard disks and tried installing it. It does come up wtih "Installing Bluetooth Modem" and all that cr@p, but after it installs and reboots the PC, in the device manager, it shows "BC2035" and has a yellow "?" next to it. Basically the drivers are not installed for it. @Ctrl-X No idea what they are upto dude. And the F*** up is that the internet connection at home is screwed as well.I can only access net @ work. I cant even look out for instructions and do it right then. Maybe I can format and reinstall Windows and check what happens. I think that the last resort. I'll try that tonight. EDIT: Sorry... the model of the dongle what I have is a BCM2035.
  13. I did checkout in their website and lots more poeple have the same issue. And the worst part is that the admin knows nothing about it. People say that they have to get the dongle replaced But I'm certain that its just the drivers I need because the drivers are not included in the supplied CD.
  14. I tried installing the software with and without the dongle plugged in. As I said, it only install the "BlueSoleil" software and not the drivers.
