  1. Can someone confirm if using the GPMC tool to create backups would mean the back up can ONLY be used for the same domain name or can it be used to restore the backup to another domain or not? Thanks
  2. When i try to connect to my server via RDP i for some strange reason get the following error "because of a protocol error, detected at the client (code 0x1104) this session will be disconnected. Please try connecting to the remote computer again" Ive tried several things by connecting to the servers registry and adding values as indicated at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q154596/ (which was advised by a friend) but still no luck anyone know what to do?
  3. I THINK this maybe achieved by double clicking the user and setting your time restrictions - not sure if you can do this over a group as im not by a Windows Server

    Iis Windows Xp

    When you reinstalled Windows did you use NTFS
  5. looking at your setup and from what you said if you can connect to your router's home page that would mean your routers configuration is incorrect - you need to change this to your servers address but leave the default gateway the same on your PC(s) Hope ths helps
  6. Is this a Dell machine if yes try http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;310794 (remember to backup your registry and use it at your own risk) If not try this and see if it resolves Boot into Safe Mode Start > Run, Type regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll Press OK (wait for message the registration was successful) Start > Run, Type regsvr32.exe licdll.dll Press OK If that doesnt work either - THEN REINSTALL (joke) 1. Start > Run, Type Regedit > Press OK 2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents Highlight it and click File - Export (to back it up) 3. On the right pane double click OOBETimer. Carefully change just the first byte (to say 00) 4. Copy Windows\System32\wpa.dbl and wpa.bak to a different folder, then delete them from System32 Then try activating - if it doesnt work then restore the reg file you saved earlier before trying any other steps.
  7. My guess would be to remove the redirection on the Start Menu to see if this does anything different - may not but just a guess
  8. I usually use Remote Desktop and set the option to use printers when setting up the RD connection - if thats of any help
  9. If you stop Automatic Updates you can delete ALL the folders contained in the SoftwareDistribution folder (then restart Automatic Updates)......Ive not come across any problems doing this and believe it should be safe to delete.
  10. First ensure you have succesfully removed SP2: boot into RC (use your XP disk). Change your command line to c:\windows\ (if its not already) type: cd $NtServicePackUninstall$\Spuninst {Enter} batch spuninst.txt {Enter} exit {Enter} dont type {Enter}. If that recovers your system them go to add/ remove programs and remove (if it exists) Windows Xp hotfix 824141 - reboot If that fails then...... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
  11. Did you install the drivers for SATA by pressing F6 at startup of installation? - just a guess but thought to mention it
  12. I have been already using GPMC from MS and after reading the help file few months back i remember it saying "right click the GPO and select BackUp" - but i didnt have the option BackUp - is this what your referring to? if not could you please explain as the BackUp option is not available to me for some stupid reason. Thanks
  13. I would agree with Klasika - let Active Directory install DNS for you its straight forward once youve assigned your static IP add for your server
  14. I want to be able to see ALL the changes that i make in my GPO and see the effects it has on users etc - is there a quicker way to do this rather than logging on to the client itself to check what changes its made? Thanks
  15. I'd check your redirection again to make sure - i had this problem and it was the folder path that was causing the problem
  16. Anyone know how to back up all the GPOs i have created? Also is there a way for me to "copy" a GPO and use it under another OU or would this be part of the backing up process? Thanks in advance
  17. Did you try and reset your router? Have you ran spyware cleaner tools? have you run the following commands at the command prompt: (Start > Run type in cmd press ok): Ipconfig /release -E Ipconfig /flushdns -E netsh int ip reset logfile.txt -E netsh winsock reset -E restart pc where -E is you pressing enter
  18. 1st disable automatic updates via Services 2nd Delete all the files in SoftwareDistribution (found in Windows folder) 3rd Go to Internet options > Settings > View Objects and delete WUWebControl Class 4th if you still have problems type the following into the run command: (Start > Run) REGSVR32 /u atl.dll REGSVR32 /u wuapi.dll REGSVR32 /u wuaueng.dll REGSVR32 /u wucltui.dll REGSVR32 /u wups.dll REGSVR32 atl.dll REGSVR32 wuapi.dll REGSVR32 wuaueng.dll REGSVR32 wucltui.dll REGSVR32 wups.dll Restart PC
  19. Did you have the same problem before installing SP2? Do you get slow speeds in Safemode with networking? Are you behind a router? if so try restarting the router
  20. Why is it everytime i shutdown my PC i get the notification that is telling me that it is syncronising with my server - why and where are these files stored and how can i stop this oh also are there any benefits for this sync? Thank you
  21. I use copy and paste (from a floppy with the previous installations wpa.dbl etc files that i saved) to the system32 folder it asks me to overrite - i select yes. Theres no hardware changed or anything same partition/ hardware etc
  22. I have activated my version of Windows Server and it works fine. All i want to know is how i could save my activation file to avoid having to call MS. To tell you the truth i dont like calling MS at all i feel like im being controlled for software I purchased almost right........ i log in asks for activation copy my previous activation files (wpa.dbl, wpa.bak and even wpabaln.exe) log off/ log on Error message received "You need to activate your product with MS......) logs me out i log in again - it allows me
  23. I have!!!!! but i would like to know why this method doesnt work when it works with XP - so im more curious to know why that happens
  24. Whenever i reinstall Windows Server 2003 it prompts me for activation as expected. I saved the activation files (wpa.dbl etc etc) from the last installation and try to copy them over to the system32 directory so i dont need to activate my copy. This for some reason doesnt work. When i log in it says i need to activate it with microsoft logs me out and i attempt to sign back in and allows me to. Anyone know whats going on here and why? do i need to save some registry key too? Thanks
  25. Were having a huge debate at work about whether we should upgrade to Win XP 64 bit. I know theres not a lot of applications avaiable at the moment but wanted to know what you guys will be doing when its released in June/ July Thanks
