  1. check capacitors on the MB around the CPU, the symptoms you've described sounds like it...
  2. Be aware that MS does not support multihomed DCs... and it's not recommended to have multihomed servers as AD can not select what NIC it should operate on...
  3. you have to digg a bit deeper for solution, it can be many things. BTW, the fee of 25 US$ to access eventid.net will be the best 25 bucks ever spent, trust me...
  4. Better connect it and demote it properly, as when just DELETE it from AD, there is many referenes left in AD towards that DC...
  5. I see no reason for capturing LPT1 unless you have specific program that can print ONLY on LPT1. When you use net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection you add netowk printer connection, and net.SetDefaultPrinter sets default printer. As far as I can remember, there are very few programs (DOS based) that require LTP port to print. As per your last question, I think you should remove /persistent:yes from your statement
  6. Here is an example of a simple VBS logon script. Copy & paste the content, modify it ater your needs, save it as vbs file (filename.vbs), place it under the same folder where your current script is. Don't forget to change the logon script name on the user properties. This script maps user home folder under drive P, should you map user home folder under user properties within AD Users and Computers, remove it either from there or from the script as it will try to overlap the action. ' VBScript. ' Mapping user home folder on the server Dim oNet, sUser Set oNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network") sUser =oNet.UserName oNet.MapNetworkDrive "P:", "\\SUN\" & sUser 'Mapping Network Attached Drives Dim WshNetwork Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "M:", "\\sun\CMT" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Q:", "\\sun\Public Folder" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "R:", "\\venus\IT" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "S:", "\\sun\Share" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "W:", "\\sun\Course" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "X:", "\\EARTH\XALWIN" WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Z:", "\\sun\CopyScan" 'Mapping Network Attached Printers Dim net Set net = CreateObject("WScript.Network") net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\HPLJ2100", "HPLJ2100" net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\DELLM5200", "DELLM5200" net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\DELLM5300", "DELLM5300" net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\ScienceCopy", "ScienceCopy" net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\EducationCopy", "EducationCopy" net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\HouseCopy", "HouseCopy" 'Selecting default printer Set net = CreateObject("WScript.Network") net.SetDefaultPrinter "\\sun\DELLM5300"
  7. there is NO need for UNC path for logon scripts, just write the script name like logon.vbs on the user profile tab and it should work ... scripts MUST reside inside NETLOGON folder within your SYSVOL share
  8. I'm trying to slipstream mass storage and lan drivers into Windows Server 203 CD, but every time I get this error... Any idea what the problem might be? Thanks
  9. Don't bother installing Vista on 256 MB RAM ... it will take you ages to install and boot into Vista, not to mention working in Vista will be like running up the Mt. Everest ...
  10. Thanks man I really apreciate this
  11. I'm trying to remove anoying cloud messages in system tray like "MSN Messenger is still running" or "Disk space ..." I've seen that hack somwhere long time ago, but cannot find it anymore.
  12. Create a new GPO and navigate to Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment there you will find settings "Change the system time" ... configure it by adding Domain Users user group .... close GPO and make sure to set No Override for this GPO ... You might also need to set some permissions on the registry key on the workstation (only if users still can not change their system time after applying new GPO using command gpupdate /force from CMD) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation the following permissions should be applied: Query Value Set Value Create Subkey Enumerate Subkey Notify Read Control More info can be found in the Microsoft KB article 300022
  13. Then a solution for you is eiather a thin client or regular PC with GPO restrictions and Temrinal Services ...
  14. You can not restore something that was on secondary partition, onto primary active partition and expecti it to work. Lest say that you have a disk as follows: | Diagnostic | Primary, Active | Secondary +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+ | EISA part. 48 MB | Windows Server 2003 | Windows XP | +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+ Now you can NOT restore Windows XP back to primary partition and boot it ... same happens if you've made backup using Symantec Ghost, Acronis TI, Snapshot ... you can restore original backups only to their respective target partitions ... even if you remove EISA partition from the above example, and restore Windows Server 2003 instead, it will not work, the partitions MUST be same as at the time of backup ... same apply for difference between IDE and SATA disks ...
  15. If your users are always loging to the same computers, then yes you can bind particular user to particular computer using Log on to on Account tab within user properties (Active Directory Users and Computers) ... other way is limit login, already mentioned by cluberti
  16. if you'll reinstall your domain and not restore from backup, no they can not, you have to re-join them to the domain ...
  17. Before you had a chance to backup an activation file (wba.dbl) so you could place it back to Windows\System32 if you reinstall your system, so no activation is required again ...
  18. my mistake, it was suppsed to be OEM not VLK. At the moment of the post I was installing VLK, it was bad typo ...
  19. you're right, I was supposed to write GC instead of Schema master ... lol thanks
  20. Very simple, install new server (Server2) and run dcpromo (make it additional domain controller for the existing domain), once done, and confirmed with no errors in Event Viewer, transfer FSMO roles including Global Catalog role to Server2 from Server1. Demote Server1 using dcpromo, remove it from the domain (after you demote DC, the server is automatically set as member server), reinstall OS on Server1, promote it to DC using dcpromo, transfer FSMO roles back (including Global Catalog role) to Server1 from Server2, demote Server2 using dcpromo, remove it then from the domian and you're good as new ... [HOW-TO] How to view and transfer FSMO roles in Windows Server 2003 EDIT: Corrected server role that doesn't belong to the FSMO roles - Global Catalog
  21. How come I can still backup activation on Windows XP SP2 VLK?
  22. How can I backup Windows XP x64 activation in case I need to reinstall Windows? I can not find wba.dbl in my Windows\System32 folder nor I can find wba.bak ... Thanks in advance. Title edited -- Please, use [TAGS] in your topic's title. Please follow XP Forum Rules from now on. --Sonic
  23. I have no ftp servers on my LAN, and my ISP says that all my ports are open, so I'm targeting my gateway server as potentional problem ...
