Download Windows 2000 Server DVD

Hi,

We have a windows 2000 server at one of our branch offices.  I want to enable Terminal Server, so i can remote onto the server.

During the install it has prompted for the i386 folder, looking for tsc.001

Does anyone know where I cna get this file from.  MSDE has Windows 3.1, but no 2000...!!!


Any idea where i can get hold of it?

Upgrading the server seems rather extreme.  I just want to enable terminal server.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

SP2 Includes the Files i think.

Go to www.microsoft.com/downloads, search for Service Pack 2.  Start the install, it will decompress all of the files to a temporary directory.  When it comes up with the "Welcome to Windows 2000 SP2, please click Next to install" (or whatever that screen says), STOP!  Leave the screen running.  Do not close it, or the files you just decompressed will be deleted.  Now go and install TS.  When it asks for the SP2 CD, point it to the directory where you just decompressed all of those files.  Once TS is installed, you can cancel the SP2 install.

Upgrading the server seems extreme?  You do realize that 2000 Server is now 12 year old technology and is not supported by Microsoft?  You do realize that there are no new security patches being issued?  You do realize that the hardware it's installed on is more likely to fail than to remain functional (if it's running 2000 it must be old).

If you're only defense to the comment that you should upgrade the server is that it seems extreme, I'd say it's terribly unwise (and if you're an IT professional, unprofessional) to be proposing remaining on such a product.  If you argued that you had an application that didn't support 2003 or 2008, that's fine... that I can justify and point out it that while that software needs an upgrade to one that works on a newer system, it WOULD be a reason you can't do this right away.

Still, you really should be looking at EVERY way to get off 2000 and what it will take to do so.

but keeping a server up to date with windows updates stops a lot or security problems

now m$ doesn't support 2000 then it will be a security risk and open to hacking

That would be a concern if it was on a public network.
