  1. I'm not sure if this is in the right spot, but we're having a problem with our digital certificate. We recently renewed it. When you used to grab our installer it would say our company name but now it's saying "Unknown Publisher." Now it's still installing (even on machines that are set to refuse unsigned installers) which suggests that it has the cert but that somehow our company name got broken. I don't know much about certs, so I'm not sure what other information I could give to help out. But if anyone has any idea what would be causing this please reply! Thanks much in advance.
  2. Mapped Network Drives

    Sounds like what I am looking for. Question though: If that folder already exists, will the mkdir overwrite the exist folder? Like would it be a bad idea to include that mkdir in the login script itself?
  3. To make a long story short, one of our servers crapped out on us and I am in the process of rebuilding. AD is still in tact, but there are still some missing pieces. I would like to create a login script to map all existing users to a network drive. (ie. - net use u: \\[sERVER]\users\%username% /yes) The trouble being, the \\[sERVER]\users folder isn't populated with all of the folders associated with each individual user. I had thought that it would automatically be created if the folder did not already exist, but that hasn't happened for me. I think I may be missing something and there are simply too many users to make the folders by hand. Is there any type of script that I can use to create the users folders? I know I'm probably not explaining this properly, but hopefully someone gets what I'm trying to say. If not I can try to make it more clear.
  4. Folder Redirection Reverting

    Recently we had a server crash. This server had been hosting all of our users "My Documents" folders. Luckily we had been smart enough to be running back ups and the documents are all in tact. In the rebuilding process we have decided that not all users need to have their documents hosted. I went to one user (Running XP pro) that did need their documents hosted and remapped his "My Documents" folder to the folder on our server and it worked fine for about a week. Then today he called me to say that all of his documents had disappeared. When I logged into his computer the redirection was gone and his "My Documents" folder was once again looking in the C drive. In the short term I have just given him an icon pointing directly to that folder on the server, but does anyone know why the redirection would just get bumped and replaced after a week of working without a hitch?
  5. I'm having a little problem with an iphone and gmail. One of my colleagues uses her iphone religiously and won't use anything else. We use gmail (with our own domain) to schedule appointments. I often receive meeting requests from her and she would get an auto deny from me. I have checked my settings and there is no auto deny set on my account. And she is the only person that I auto deny to. I found other issues with iphones receiving similar problems. Has anyone else experienced this or know how to stop it from happening?
  6. I have two servers, I need to dump the drives from one onto the other. I'm putting together a batch file to do this. It needs to dump to a folder named for each day of the week. If someone with a good understanding of batching could take a quick glance over this and let me know what they think, I'd appreciate it. Be nice because I am relatively new to the batch file game. @echo off REM Delete drives if in use: net use x: /delete /yes net use y: /delete /yes net use z: /delete /yes REM Map drives from the server: net use x: \\s1\c$ /yes net use y: \\s1\d$ /yes net use z: \\s1\e$ /yes REM Insert backup statement @echo off ::variables set drive=e:\backups\s1 set folder=%date:~0,3% set backupcmd=xcopy /s /c /e /h /i /r /k /y %backupcmd% "x:" "%drive%\c\%folder%" %backupcmd% "y:" "%drive%\d\%folder%" %backupcmd% "z:" "%drive%\e\%folder%" REM End backup statement REM Delete drives again.. net use x: /delete /yes net use y: /delete /yes net use z: /delete /yes
  7. Roaming profile weird problem

    If you're getting an access denied message I would check the share and security settings. Make sure the appropriate people / groups have access to the resource.

    Were your client computers running ie8?
  9. SBS 2003 R2 Licensing...Ebay?

    I will keep that in mind. Thank you for the input.
  10. I need to get a chunk of CALs for this company I manage and a 20 pack is like 1400 retail. On ebay a 15 pack is 600 but I'm really worried about buying licenses off ebay. They're WAY cheaper (which is good because the PIC at this company is a real money pincher) but I'm worried that they might not work. Any of you ever bought licenses this way? Is it safe to do so?
  11. I just took over a network and the last admin was just sloppy. After talking to the department head, I have a list of different things that I need to change in the domain policy. Rather than going through and figuring out what the last guy set up (there are 20+ different policies that he created), I would prefer to just make a new policy template and roll that out. Trouble is, I don't have the time to sit at their site and make a new template. I was wondering if there was anything that I could use to set up a new template on my computer (Vista Business) and save it to say, a USB key, and then bring that with me the next time I'm at their facility.
  12. Silicon Image SII 0649

    We ended up scrapping the card altogether because even though I tried the driver you provided, it didn't like it. But thanks for the help. Next time I'll pay more attention to the replies. ;-)
  13. Silicon Image SII 0649

    I'm kinda pulling my hair out about this whole thing. Every link that I find that says they have it is broken!! I know that most of those links were from 2002 but still!! I need that driver! Once again, it's Silicon Image PCI-0649 Ultra 100 IDE if anyone has it lying around or finds a link that isn't broken, I will be so very appreciative.
  14. Silicon Image SII 0649

    Sorry it was the end of the day, I should've posted the os. We're going to be putting Windows Server 2000 on the machine.
  15. Silicon Image SII 0649

    We're trying to salvage an older server for some sort of use. It's using a Silicon Image SII 0649 IDE raid controller, trouble is we can't find the driver anywhere. I've search the internet and all of the download sites that I found (if they don't charge that is) have broken links for this particular driver. Anyone happen to have one lying around or know where I can get one?
