Windows 2000 is an operating system for use on both client and server computers. It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the last version of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation. Four editions of Windows 2000 were released (Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server) that shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console. All versions of the operating system support NTFS 3.0, Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage. The Windows 2000 Server family includes support for Active Directory services, Distributed File System and fault-redundant storage volumes.

I have two 2012 domain controllers (Prometheus and Chronos), and both the Domain and Functional Level are at Windows Server 2003.  We've migrated from Windows 2000 to 2003 domain many years ago.  Everything has been working fine, and have not seen any errors with AD or replication, and we have not experiences any issues DNS or communications issues with our on-prem Exchange 2010 server.

All of our computers are Windows 10 Pro Computers.

So, I decided to view Active Directory Sites and Services, and discovered an DC (Nemesis) is still listed under server, but should not be there.  I believe it was a former DC and was properly demoted many years back.

Nemesis - Sites and Services
So, I am not sure whether I should simply delete it.  I do not want to start having AD issues.  

So, I also decided to check DNS.  As you can see below within the forward lookup zones (.msdcs.ch13.local and ch13.local) Nemesis appears a name server.  The ch13.local\_msdcs only showing this server (Nemesis), and not the other servers (Prometheus or Chronos) does not appear to be correct.

DNS View
So, I don't know whether I need to delete "Nemesis" Server within Sites and Services and also the entries within DNS.  Not sure doing so will actually cause damage and not help.  Remember, AD and DNS have been working fine with no issues/errors for many years.

Below I added the output for Repadmin /Showrepl and DCDiag with details including DNs.

I'm new to VirtualBox and getting a critical error starting a Windows 2000 Server VM.   I would like to know what options I have to debug it as I really don't know where to start.

The VIM was created from a Windows 2000 Server system clone using Clonezilla followed by Sysinternals Disk2Vhd from the clone.  

The original server was The Clone and VHD occurred without error, so I assume it's something with how I set it up in Virtualbox. I've attached the logs by the last run.

The server was a RAID 5  with 3 GB of memory.    3 GB of memory was provided to the VM.

If I know where to start...

Thanks lots for your insights.

I am hosting a website (popswine.com) on a W2K server. There is a valid SSL but our customers are getting "site not secure" errors with the implementation of the new browser rules.

Is there a fix and/or a SSL that will run on a W2K server.

We are planning an update but I'm looking for a "band-aid" if one exists.

I just installed Windows 2000 as Hyper-V VM on Windows 10 pro 64 bit successfully. But I am not able to access Host drives and internet despite my success in Win10ProVM. I would appreciate any suggestions and guidance how to configure Host drives and internet.  Here is the VM settings for W2KVM.

Small business, VM running W2K Server also acting as DC, I have one other DC replicating, planning to upgrading to 2003 enterprise. Boss steps in "go to cloud", "Network attached Storage" etc...  Does Azure allow me to install 2003 from my local, or is cloud pre-determined from a pull down menu, 20012 R2, 2016, CentOS etc. or is my thinking wrong.

I'm arguing for simple upgrade path to 2003, then to 2008 here at the office, any thoughts or amunition to defend my plan?

I have another computer guy in town who is asking me to go crack the password on a 2000 server!  (not real keen on the idea).
I know that posting password crackers is probably outside the scope of what should be posted here, but if anyone can privately provide some advice, or if there is a known utility that can do that without harming the OS, I'd rather not take my chances with the one I have.

Customer has a Windows 2000 Advanced Server running some sort of legacy software.  I am working on setting up a more modern replacement but they have a pressing concern that the machine is exactly an hour behind.  I have tried setting it to the correct time manually but it persists in changing back.

I unchecked the option to automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time, and then changed the time.  It stubbornly switches back in a few seconds.

I tried setting it to SNTP from Apple or pool.ntp.org, but it continues to change back.  When i try to set it to RTSDOMAIN it says the CURRENT TIME and the LOCAL TIME on the controlling server are an hour apart.  I say yes to change to the other server time.... I believe it setting to CURRENT TIME and not LOCAL TIME.

This is apparently causing a serious issue. And i have no idea how to force this server forward an hour.

UPDATE:  I should say that the machine in question is a virtual machine on a Windows Host.  The host is set correctly and working fine.

Hi, I have an application running in windows 2000. I do not have the source code for that..Moreover, it is mandatory for me to run this .exe in windows 2000. I have attached the jpeg file of the gui. This gui consists of different slots where I can manually type voltages.

Coming to my problem,
However, I want this to be automated..I want to type these voltages hundreds of times and very fast. Thus, lets suppose I got these voltages from another program in to a text file.
 After assuming that I have a set of voltages in a text file.. Now i want to access this program, then copy a number from the text file, then paste in the program slot, then a double tab and copy and paste the next voltage. This process needs to be automated.. I have no clue what to do.. I was searching and found bat file or JAVA or .net can be used (just a superficial surfing the internet)... What platform should i choose for this program. Any help is greatly appreciated and acknowledged...Thanking u in advance

I had this question after viewing STOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure) - Windows 2000 Server.

Hello everyone...after consulting with a few other forums on this topic, with limited success, I am hoping to find a definitive solution here on the Experts Exchange.

Having posted a number of topics on this issue elsewhere, I'll keep it brief: I have an HP Vectra desktop computer that runs Windows 2000 Professional, but the device was stricken with the c0000218 "Blue Screen Of Death" back in 2010. With the help of some online computer-repair forum users elsewhere, I've managed to make some progress in trying to troubleshoot the error In the past year-plus, but have unfortunately hit a bit of a standstill in the process, and no other forum users have been able to help me move forward. Which finally brings me here to the Experts Exchange page. To save some trouble, I will provide links to the other forum topics I've started, some of which have screen captures to illustrate my progress, at the bottom of this post.

Fortunately, much of the hard work has already been done by myself with the help of the other forums' users, so hopefully, that one helpful tip to get through my logjam can come from any one of you here on this site.

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies :-)

I was asked by a potential customer about their HP Designjet 110 Plus printer - it is hooked to an very old Windows 2000 system.  The printer started printing lighter and lighter so the person went out to buy a black ink cartridge as it appears this is all they print in - the color cartridges have been in there since 2007/8 - at least that is what the dates say on them.  Any thoughts on what could be causing the lighter black - I cleaned the printer thoroughly  - there is no software on the system to clean the printheads as I have read in other posts.  Yes the obvious answer is to buy something else but looking for any answers for them on this now.

hi guys,

I've downloaded Vmware Converter 4.0.1 that can support Windows 2000 machines (don't ask, this thing needs to disappear fast from our servers!!). I've installed it on the local machine itself. However, our Vmware environment is Esxi 5.5. So whatever I do, it won't connect from the application to the Vmware infrastructure when I enter the credentials.

Can I export this as a Vmware Server 2.x (the only option for servers given to me) and then load it up on the Vmware Esx 5.5 environment?

Thanks for helping

Hi All,

I am trying to automate a script that I have to run on Windows 2000, XP and 7 (64bit). Currently I am asking for user input by using the case method. I was wondering if it is possible to automate this? I need the script to check what OS version it is and to run that part of the script.

The file structure of what I am installing is the same for Windows 2000 and XP. It is different for Windows 7. Please advice?

Hi

I have a client with a windows 2000 server they can't upgrade.  I need to scan it for malware and haven't been able to find a product to do so.

Can anyone recommend one that'll do the job?  It doesn't necessarily need to be free.

Thanks

I don't have xcopy for Windows 2000.

I want to write a super simple DOS bat file to do this daily:
1) Copy all files in C:/SourceDirectory and in C:/SourceDirectory2 to D:/DestinationDirectory that are created or modified after and including June 1, 2017.
2) Create a copy of  D:/DestinationDirectory and rename it as DestinationDirectory_MMDDYY where MMDDYY is the current month, day and year.

How do I do this?

I would like to create a VM from a Windows 2000 Server that houses an antiquainted application engine that uses Sql Server 2000 as a repository.  The application is necessary to access the first several years of structured information from their business.

What I'm looking for is a way to create a VM of this system and run it in the same Hyper-V environment housing a VM of the client side of this application.  I used DISK2VHD to make the VM of the client side, but needed to upgrade the client from XP to Windows 7 before DISK2VHD would run.  I understand DISK2VHD requires VSS which didn't come into play until xp and Server 2003.

What would recommend as a procedure to follow to accomplish this?

Thanks!

I have a Dell PowerEdge 1750 server, and I replaced the motherboard and one of the three hard drives.  It was working fine for 3 days and then I get a "STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" error.

I used the Windows 2000 Advanced Server CD to repair Windows and it automatically ran CHKDSK.  I can boot into Windows now, but it's very slow to open files or folders, and it doesn't open a tiny text file sometimes.

Would there be a record of this in the dmp files?  

Please help!

I have a Dell PowerEdge 1750 and it had an amber light last week.  I am guessing this error is caused by a low CMOS battery, but I'm not sure.  I didn't add any new hardware or software.

"A device driver has corrupted the executive memory pool.  If this is the first time you've this Stop error screen, restart your computer.  If this screen appears again, follow these steps ..."

Please see attached message.

After restarting the computer, Windows boots up again, but it keeps freezing.  Is this a low CMOS battery issue, or something else?

hi,

right now we have a task to relocate SQL 2000 (long time ago, I can't remember how to do it...) from a Windows 2000 server to Windows 2003 server so that we can apply security patch on Windows 2003 for any new virus attack.

anyone still remember how to move system DBs and user DBs from one SQL 2000 to another SQL 2000 ?

We have an old ERP system that has to run on W2K 2000, and clients use terminal services to access it.  I had to reinstall everything, and can't figure out how we got TS Licensing to work before, since we are running Small Business Server 2011 and the terminal server can't be a domain controller.  Also, the W2K terminal server is running on a virtual machine in Hyper-V on a Win 2008 Server.  So the two servers in our domain are SBS2011 and Win 2008, aside from virtual machine.  I was playing around with the TS licensing on Win2K, trying to figure out how we got this to work before, and was able to connect to SBS2011 (it felt like this was what we did before, even though it doesn't make sense).  As you can see in the attached screenshot, it picked up Existing W2K Server TS per device.  When I right-click and select Install Licenses, it tells me the licensing wizard cannot connect to the license server.  But then the activation status changes from unknown to activated.  When I close the TS Licensing window and reopen it, I have to go through the whole process again.  

Has anyone done this before?  Any thoughts?

TIA,
Christina
