  1. I am wondering if anyone knows how to go about: 1) Enumerating a list of all unlinked Group Policy Objects in Active Directory. 2) Obtaining their names/SIDs from AD and SYSVOL to cleanup these unused policies. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
  2. I am looking for help writing a vbScript or batch file that will use something like ADO, ADSystemInfo or dsquery and dsget to bind to my domain and enumerate a list of all groups in the domain with two or less members in the group. Once the list of groups is obtained I would like to write the results to a text file showing: 1) Group Name and FQDN 2) Group Members 3) Date Created We are in the process of cleaning up our Active Directory with old, unused or obsolete objects and this is part of that effort. Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. I would assume you are running a version of Windows server for your software registration process so if that's the case, depending on the version of Windows Server you are running; I would look into using the following: net time /setsntp:pool.ntp.org or W32TM as was mentioned in an earlier thread here. Either will work just make sure your firewall is set to allow UDP traffic port 123. Good luck.
  4. I too had the same problem. My research indicated that there is a bug in the functionality of sysprep.exe in Vista, 2008, 7, 2008R2 that does not allow it to join domains. A third party developed a tool, mysysprep.exe that provides an alternative solution that allows the customization of the .xml file and will join a computer to a specified domain. See: http://tsaysoft.com/mysysprep2/
  5. I thought I saw somewhere in this forum where there was an Office 2010 UL. I can't find it. Does anyone know if it is still on the board and if it's been updated?
  6. @Grope - you were right about the one .UL file. I accidentally saved over the 64 bit version with the x86. That has been corrected. If anyone is interested, here is the latest set of updates files up to and including December 2009. It is only for 2008 SP2 and later. windows_2008_server_sp2_x64_enu.ulz windows_2008_server_sp2_x86_enu_.ulz
  7. You may want to check out this knowledge base article: kb238852 It might help.
  8. I put together these Server 2008 update lists for SP2 and subsequent updates and hotfixes. No claims as to completeness but they are based on KB article numbers, dates released and the Microsoft spreadsheet listing of hotfixes/updates included in SP2. windows_2008_server_sp2_x64_enu.ulz windows_2008_server_sp2_x86_enu_.ulz
  9. Some older motherboards don't support booting from USB. Check with the mobo manufacturer on their website. A BIOS update may help resolve the problem as well.
  10. I assume you are attempting to recover lost data?? If so, take a look at: http://www.runtime.org and check out Get Data Back for FAT and/or NTFS. I have used these programs with their respective plugins for BartPE and they work well. Good luck.
  11. I ran across a rootkit infected computer today as well. I downloaded unhackme.zip, installed and cleaned it up. May want to try that too.
  12. In case the issue is still unresolved, you may want to run the bootsect /nt52 c: /force command after you lay down the XP image to change the boot sector to be XP/2003 compatible. The bootsector for Vista/PE2 is /nt60 and is slightly different.
  13. After you format the drive and before you run winnt32.exe run this command: bootsect /nt52 c: /force
  14. Rapidshare link to guide document no longer works. Could you post again with a new link?
  15. HP Rapid Deploy would be another option as would Symantec's Backup Exec System Recovery, the next iteration of Livestate Recovery. See manufacturer's websites for details and pricing information.
