Upgraded NT 4 Server to Win 2003 Server - Lost Rights to Files
Posted on 2006-06-06
Help Please! Previously had a NT 4 Web Server and a Win 2000 data server, no domain, just workgroups access. We are a public library and our software is oracle based and our support people say we cannot install active directory stating it does not get along with oracle. The website card catalog links to the oracle database on the data server. Anyway, after Upgrading the web server (NT 4) to a Win 2003 server I can no longer access my website for modifications with FrontPage from my workstation. I presume the problem to be some sort of rights issue, but am a bit nervous about making change without good direction. The websites that were on the NT 4 server were moved to new 2003 server and seem to run okay with minor problems for example, asp pages won't run. Have successfully converted some to htm with an asp conversion website and most are working okay. The big issue is that I cannot reach my site for modifications and need to do so urgently. Can you experts help me with this? Please be specific as I'm very new to windows side of networking. Would like to create a domain, but am afraid to do so for fear of messing up something. Just can't risk the downtime.
Thanks in advance for help.
