  1. or you can just register as MS partner and receive welcome kit with bunch of software and licenses for as low as 300 US$ ... just buy extra CALs Action pack is only suppose to be used for demo and test not live production Nope, as it says in the license agreement, it's intended for internal business use, that means that you can use it for your own business use as much as you want, the way you want it as long as it's installed on computers that belongs to your business Source: https://partner.microsoft.com/US/40016455?PS=3 Source: https://partner.microsoft.com/US/program/ma...ck/40013779#not
  2. Check the http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid...tor&phase=1 for clues

  4. You could also use tool replmon from Windows Server 2k/2k3 support tools to pinpoint your replica problem ...
  5. I don't think you can even replace the key. As per difference, there is NO difference between Retail or OEM and VLK except activation requirement. Changing the key (even if it was possible) will not help, as installation CD has it's own signature on how to behave during install. If you open your setupp.ini file within i386 folder you will notice PID signature, what counts there are last 3 digits... ExtraData=707A667567736F696F697911AE7E05 Pid=55034000 335 = Retail 270 = VLK OEM = OEM 000 = Upgrade
  6. Delete your profile C:\Documents and Settings\%username% there should be your profile, and if you haven't had My Documents moved from there, all your letters and God knows what else will be gone for good.
  7. Check if the GPO is applied, using gpresult
  8. Do the following... 1. Log on as a member of the Domain Admins group. 2. Open the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in. 3. Right-click the domain or Organizational Unit where you want to create the GPO and press Properties. 4. Select the Group Policy tab. 5. Press New. 6. Type a name for the new GPO and press Enter. 7. Press the Edit button. 8. Navigate through User Configuration / Windows Settings / Internet Explorer Maintenance / Security. 9. Right-click Security Zones and Content Ratings in the right-hand pane and press Properties. 10. Select Import the current security zones and privacy settings. If prompted, press Continue. 11. Press Modify Settings. 12. Select Trusted Sites and press the Sites button. 13. Type the full URL of the site you wish to add and press Add. 14. Press Close (or OK) and OK. 15. Press Close (or OK) until all dialog boxes are closed, and close any snap-in windows. 16. Allow sufficient time for the policy to propagate throughout the domain. 17. Open CMD (Start - Run - CMD - Enter) and type gpupdate /force Every machine authenticating to the AD afterwards will receive new GP
  9. If the server is in AD try sting up simple logon script and see if that helps. The only thing that comes up right now is either session settings or user account lockup.
  10. How about DNS records for that server? Did you check your DNS?
  11. Any subfolder of your mapped folder will shown so you can browse it the same way like in Novell
  12. AD has a command line utility to export AD objects to csv file, consult the Windows Server 2003 book for details on how to use this utility. However, having the extra server box that will keep your AD infrastructure as well as FSMO roles is the cheapest way (if you care about TCO - total cost of ownership)
  13. No, AD functions after the version number, during the time, your AD version changes, and as soon as server is restored the version number on the server is lower than on workstations, that's why you have to rejoin them. However, I didn't get why do you have to restore server? It's very rare that AD server goes down just like that, and I believe that one extra box aside just to keep your FSMO roles would be benefit for both you and your AD environment
  14. Backup strategy, sisaster recovery strategy, GPO and user administration, OS deployment, Exchange routing groups, mail backup & restore, troubleshoting, spam...
  15. You have to stup your DNS to resolve Internet hosts. If I were you, I would setup my DNS on the Win2k3 box and include that IP address in DHCP pool config (DNS server)
  16. I don't think you can actually delete network printer connection using wildcards, but rather collect all printer names and then make a vbs script and remove them. Here is simple example how to remove network printer connection as well as printer icon. Option Explicit Dim objNetwork, strUNCPrinter strUNCPrinter = "\\Server\Printer" Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network") ' Section which removes the network printer objNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection strUNCPrinter WScript.Echo "Check Printers folder NO: " & strUNCPrinter Wscript.Quit Logon Script ends here Hope this helps
  17. First, you can not use private IP addresses on the providers DNS management, as they will not resolve to anything. If your web server has global (public) ip address then that's the address you should use when seting up the DNS record. Second, you have to setup the same subdomain on your IIS, make a new website, point it to the app dir, and set host header to what ever your subdomain is. If you're using gateway with single global IP address and port forwarding function, then you have to setup your IIS after this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308163/en-us (article is intended for IIS 5.0, but same apply to IIS 6.0)
  18. Try this Right click firewall policy rule for HTTP ->click on configure http -> tab Extensions Block Specific Extension ( Allow All Others ) and then add extenstions you don't want your users to download.
  19. You should post more info about your hosting situation as well as DNS management. BTW DNS record can not bind to folder but to IP address...
  20. I'm not quite sure I understand what do you mean by 1.2 and 1.5, but to bind DHCP to a certain NIC, you have to get into DHCP MMC, right click on the server, clik Properties, clik tab Advanced and then Bindings, where you can select what NIC should DHCP operate on...
  21. That don't sound like bad caps unless Windows started getting majorly unstable before. Windows probably would keep on erroring long before it would shut off. The first symptom of bad caps would be that it crashes when running demanding tasks. Especially games and benchmarks. Then it gets worse until it starts crashing even when idle. not sure where did you get this from, anyway it's not even important, this sounds just like bad caps, when caps are bad, Windows will just shutdown with no prior errors or anything (have had many cases with caps, and not a single error log about any instability...
  22. This is where Acronis True Image Universal Restore comes into spotlight.
