  1. Hello, I'm going to be posting this on several different message boards because I'm not really sure who will be able to help. If anyone has any suggestions as to other websites I can post this question on, please feel free to suggest. The other couple that I'm going to post to first is tech-forums (dot) net and xda developers forums I am having problems connecting Sharepoint workspace mobile to my Sharepoint 2010 server. I have winmo 6.5 pro and the sharepoint app is running. I have an unlimited data plan, and I have tested this where my data works fine. I have tested this inside my network and outside also using wifi. I have one standalone Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise server installed. The server is working. I can get to the website using a web browser and it is running off of port 80. I can browse to the site from outside my firewall as well as inside with no problems. So I know that Sharepoint, in and of itself, is working. I have tried two other phones running winmo 6.5 with data plans, and office 2010 mobile and am getting the same error. Basically, I open sharepoint mobile 2010, go to the address sharepoint.domain.com (just an example) and I get the error: "Cannot connect. Sharepoint mobile doesn't support the authentication scheme that this server requires. Do you want to open this in your web browser?" If I click yes, it does open the sharepoint site in IE. All I really want is to be able to sync docs between a doc library and my phone, and my PC using workspace. Any help will be greatly appreciated. TIA
  2. I'm not sure what you're talking about as it's not very clear, but here are a few ideas. Maybe you're talking about a user class in a DHCP scope that allows a specific device to grab DHCP lease, but with different options than your standard scope (such as DNS servers, and a diferent gateway) This would be in Windows Server, not in NETSH You can use standard DHCP Reservations, also for Windows server, not in netsh. You can set a DNS Suffix to your computer, or your network connection, not sure if you can control this with NETSH, but I believe you can through the registry. You could also just set a static IP through NETSH Are any of these what you're talking about? Thanks, Luke.
  3. We're using Zenworks 7 on NDS right now, and about to migrate to ZEN10 and we've been pxe booting for years. That said, I've noticed that after imaging, especially on our old systems, I work in a school district and 60+% of all our computers are single core P4s with 256 megs of RAM running XP Pro SP3. It takes about 3 - 5 minutes for me to be able to use a USB mouse or keyboard because the computers are so old and slow. It sounds like because you're in device manager watching the driver get installed, that you're past my problem, just thought I would share my input; and also that my issue is not directly related to using ZENworks or PXE booting the images. We also are not using sysprep
  4. thanks for the replies... i ordered with an i7 and plan to buy 8 gb of ram as soon as i have the $500. thanks for the input
  5. Hey guys, Looking at the newest Lenovo Thinkpad line... I just sold my 14" ThinkPad T61 which consisted of: Intel C2D T8300 2.4 GHz 4GB RAM 500 GB HDD Integrated GFX the usual... I also have a ThinkPad W700 with the 2.0 GHz Q9000 Quad core, 8 GB RAM, a 250 and a 500 GB hard drive, hi res display..etc The w700 is absolutely incredible, I love the machine, it's just not mobile enough (I'm carrying that back and forth with me to work daily, and it definitely does it's part of the job) I need something to replace my T61 for the high performance mobility side, the T61 was incredible. A fellow colleague burst my bubble this morning when he told me the newest i7 mobile processors were not ALL HT quad cores, so I searched on intel's website, and sure enough, hyper threaded dual cores. I have all my options picked out now except for the processor. my two options now are the newest Intel i5 540m at 2.53 GHz (3MB L3), or the i7 620M at 2.66 GHz (4MB L3) with a 70$ price point for the i7. I was all set to order the i7 until I found out that both this i7 and that i5 are only hyper threaded dual cores. I understand I have bragging rights with the i7 just because it's the i7, but is the 130 MHz and the 1 MB of L3 really worth 70 dollars? I don't do any graphics, photoshop, blender, video, etc...My power is all for my virtual machines (I'm a network admin/engineer so I use a lot of them), media players, a few web browsers, IM clients and the other usual stuff. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, who would've thought I could beat myself up this much over a stupid processor Thanks
  6. hmm, strange, have you tried rebooting the server? Existing RDP sessions really shouldn't effect your ability to connect to a file share. Have you double checked permissions? Is that user able to connect to the share from a domain joined PC?
  7. When attempting to contact the share, and you receive the question about credentials, have you tried domain\user or user@domain instead of just the username? Often times I still run into this.
  8. Hello all, I'm trying to grasp this whole NAP thing for Server 2008, and I'm starting to kinda get the hang of it and I can get clients denied, and computers with static IPs are fine. My question is, if my network has a DC, a file server, a web server, an RODC, and say a Novell Zenworks ZCM server for OS deployment, and WSUS. I put the RODC and WSUS in the remediation network group, I'm using DHCP NAP. well if my clients aren't already in AD, they can't get the NAP policy. If they can't get the nap policy, they're denied network access. how then do I join the machines to the domain without setting a static IP on each one. Especially, if, say I sysprepped an image, and want to push it out to 30 workstations using ZENworks, even if I temporarily set a static IP on the image..those 30 workstations being deployed are going to attempt to join to the domain at the same time using the same IP? Just looking for a bit of insight, and maybe I'm just too much of a n00b and am completely missing something?
  9. I also installed server core, and the DCPromo button is greyed out and unavailable.
  10. Sorry for the delay in getting back. I removed the server core DNS ip from all server's DNS settings, found a couple old dns records from older DCs that hadn't been cleaned up. Still getting this error. The wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest. The error is: The network path was not found. Any other suggestions? Thanks
  11. Hey no problem, thanks for the suggestions, haven't had a chance to give them a try yet.
  12. Thanks, I'll give it a try, and assuming I also remove it from the other DC's DNS list? Also, you cannot do a manual dcpromo in server core. What I did was put up another server, do a dc promo, export the answer file and cancel before the install started. This is what's typically done afaik. Thanks
  13. Thanks for looking. DNS resolution is fine. I have mapped drives to the sysvol of the domain just fine. (that's where I have the dcpromo answer file stored). The machine is also joined to the domain with no problems and as said before DNS is installed. Thanks
  14. bump. Really want to get this going, my eval licenses are going to run out soon! Cluberti?
  15. c'mon buddy, first hit on google http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754831.aspx
  16. Alright, My domain is at all 2008 functional level, all my replications are fine. DNS settings are fine. I've promoted, demoted, migrated several domain controllers on this domain before all with no problems. All of a sudden when I try to promote this Server core server to be a domain controller I'm getting the network path cannot be found. Here's what I've done. my current main DC is my current temporary DC is and is holding all FSMO roles as I will be migrating both of these to x64 servers. Install server core rename set IP settings DNS are as follows Index1 = Index2 = Index3 = (it's own IP Address) the other two domain controllers are holding the same DNS config in the TCP/IPv4 properties. Join Server Core to domain, holding in a temporary OU where it can contact WSUS for updates. Install DNS Server using: start /w ocsetup DNS-Server (not 100% sure on that syntax, but I got it out of my MCITP 70-642 book) ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /registerdns check that an A record has been created in the domain (it's there) I have the following answer file copied to the root of C: so I can promote it using: dcpromo.exe /answer:c:\answer.txt [DCInstall] ; Replica DC promotion ReplicaOrNewDomain=Replica ReplicaDomainDNSName=domain.com SiteName=Default-First-Site-Name InstallDNS=Yes ConfirmGc=Yes CreateDNSDelegation=No UserDomain=domain.com UserName=domadmin Password=P@$$w0rd ReplicationSourceDC=LM-DC3.domain.com DatabasePath="C:\Windows\NTDS" LogPath="C:\Windows\NTDS" SYSVOLPath="C:\Windows\SYSVOL" ; Set SafeModeAdminPassword to the correct value prior to using the unattend file SafeModeAdminPassword=P@$$w0rd ; Run-time flags (optional) ; CriticalReplicationOnly=Yes ; RebootOnCompletion=Yes as I said I'm getting the network path cannot be found error. This occurs after the binaries have been installed, and the environment is being checked. Don't know what I'm missing, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! TIA
  17. Here's my network, I wasn't about to type this description out. I should edit though that the Quad Core server is running ESXi off a USB Flash Drive, and is also connected to a machine on gigabit running OpenFiler with 4x 500 GB Hard drives as an iSCSI SAN.
  18. You could get a mac address by pinging it, then doing an arp -a. do a lookup on the vendor ID of the mac. This will give you an idea of what brand the product is, and probably narrow your search a bit more.
  19. Hopefully you're in an active directory environment, but either way, you should be able to use group policies to accomplish the task.
  20. typical configuration is internal clients get your internal DNS for primary, and either use forwarders on that server to point to external, or with no active directory you point the secondary to external DNS or still use forwarders from the primary DNS.
  21. Scenario: I use Outlook 2007 to IMAP two gmail accounts (for myself) and another user in AD will be IMAPPING a third gmail account. Active Dir is setup with a shared private directory for the home folder share, roaming profiles WILL NOT be used. I am distributing Outlook 2007 using an admins MSP file through System Center Config Mgr 2007 to several different clients, XP, and Vista. My main point of AD is so that any user in the domain can logon to any computer in the domain, gain access to their files with no problems. I made the MSP file with the CIW for office 2007, I told it to put the default location for MSPs to the user's home directory (H:\outlook\outlook.pst) I am not using exchange. When I launch outlook the pst is created, however, when I add the IMAP accounts it puts those PSTs in c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\app data\microsoft\outlook (not sure of the exact path, but the default default path.) does anyone have any hints for me, so that I don't have to reconfig outlook every time I reimage a computer, or logon to a new computer? Thanks in advance.
  22. Does the disk keep increasing in usage, or does it just vary slightly?
  23. Have you only selected the languages and programs you're going to be using?
  24. Hi, I work in a 2 site (2 subnet) LAN/WAN/LAN client/server network running enterprise scale directory service and network services. We have a large number of network laser printers, but also a couple handfuls of special staff who have local USB Printers, there are a total of about 4 models. It is a pain during our yearly reimaging to spend a few days sitting in front of local machines installing the printers that take 25 minutes per install. Is there any way that anyone knows of that we can push out the printer drivers and the entire printing software package easily? I'm not sure how HP does the deployment but there are several components. It feels very ridiculous to be doing it the way we do it and if we could automate it at all it would be very helpful. Comments or questions?
