  1. Hi CoffeeFiend, Thanks for the suggestions.... Yeah, I thought of writing a small VB app to do the same... I wondering if there's some way Windows 2003 has some function for doing so, if there any ready-made apps....
  2. Hi, I manage a Windows 2003 Domain with around 550 users. I would like some ideas, suggestions on how I can broadcast a random Tip Of The Day Diaglogue-Box each time a user logs on. Tip Of The Day dialogue-box could be something like what appears when you start WinZip. The tips could possibly reside in a central repository (database, txt file), where tips can be added, modified, deleted.... Is there any software availble that'll do this for me ? Please let me know your suggestions, ideas etc.. Thanks....
  3. I dont have IIS installed..... Why cant this be done via the local DNS server ?
  4. Does no one at all have a solution to this ?? or am I not framing the issue correctly...
  5. awww come on.... I'm someone else must have some suggestion/solution....
  6. Hi Cluberti, Thank once again for helping... Now, heres the strange bit. After I posted the question, I called on of our branch offices, and they mentioned that all they do is type http://mail.vasundharatechnologies.com and they're taken directly to the login page...
  7. Hi, We're running a Windows 2003 Domain Controller (Also act as the DNS server). Our emails are hosted by a third-party email service provider. All the users access their mailboxes via Webmail (browser). However, to do so, they have to enter a really long URL : - http://mail.spherelinksmail.com/c/vasundharatechnologies.com. It's very difficult to remember... Yes.. yes... I know.. we can always bookmark it... However, what I want to know is if I can make some changes on the DNS server, to make the URL shorter... Something like an alias... so all the user have to type in the browser is something like mail.vasundharatechnologies.com. Is that possible, if yes how? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks !!!
  8. Hi, We have one server running Server 2003 and all clients running XP. I need to know if I can configure a single mandatory profile for all users, so that each time a user logs on they can access their own individual Outlook Express mail account. Currently, when the users log off they loose they Outlook Express mails and settings. Outlook Express thinks that it's running for the first time. Same things happens with Internet Explorer and some other software. How do I work around this, and have Mandatory profiles.
  9. yeah, thats awesome n all .... question is, what do I write in the script ?
  10. Hi, Hi,We have a network of around 75 workstations & 1 Windows 2003 Std. server as a DC. The user and workstations are managed via GPOs. Currently we have Open Office deployed on all the workstations. I would like to know how to un-install Open Office on all the machines, and then re-install the latest version. I know it'll have to be done via GPOs. Would like to know how. Thanks....
  11. Hi Idontwantspam/Cluberti, Thanks for the help guyz... I tried the script by Idontwant...., and it seems to be working on the test Windows XP machine...
  12. Hi Idontwantspam, Thanks for the response/suggestion. Is calcs a default Windows XP command ? If not, where can I get it from ? Once I download it, it'll have to be distributed to all the local XP clients, right ?
  13. Does anyone have any further suggestions ?
  14. Hi Mara, thanks for the response. I tried that. It prevents changes to the stuff like the desktop wallpaper, active content etc. However, it does not prevent the user from save files onto the desktop (either from the Save/Save as option of an applications, or from the desktop context menu : Right-Click - New)
  15. Hi, We have a network of around 75 workstations & 1 Windows 2003 Ent. server as a DC. We have not setup roaming profiles for the users. We would like to prevent users from saving any kind of file/data onto the desktop. The user should be able to save files only on the shares on the server. I have already restricted access to the local drives using GPOs. Now, I would like to know how to prevent users from saving data on their desktops. I know that one method is by using FOLDER RE-DIRECTION. However, I'm not to keen on using this method, since I feel it would increase the load on the server, as all the users will accessing their respective desktops from the sever. Is there any other effective way to preventing users from saving files on the desktop (from any application, or even the desktop context menu) ??
