Hello

 I am trying to delete a file on my   " Windows 7 home premium Version 6.1 Build 7601 : Service Pack 1 " laptop. This file is an Windows ISO file that was being used as 2012 R2 OS DVD for VM I had build months ago on VMware workstation.

I have removed the VMs that is using the file . After that I have used  rmdir, deltree rmdir /S etc commands. I reboot the system and stops all VMware related processes and i rebooted again. Yet, I am still getting the following error message in the attachment. I Have also tried both from cdm and powershell with elevated privilege where the command available.

I think I need to delete a registry entry or better how can I forced to delete the file from system regardless the process that using it or anything in general related to the file preventing it from deletion  !

any ideas  ?

Please look at the attachment !

I'm writing a batch file that needs to read In a text file with multiple lines (2-3 or more) and assign them to variables (i.e. Line1, Line2, Line3).  which will then act on those to run jobs based on the variables read in.  What is the easiest way to do this preferably without for loops or delims. etc.

Thx,
Brian

In the domain, we have two locations which have folder redirection to a 2003 server (I know...)  and in the other, the redirection is to a 2008R2 server.  I want to change the folder redirection to 2012R2 servers in both locations and I am thinking of suspending folder redirection in both locations and returning the data to the local workstations.  Once all workstations are hosting their own documents,  I would redo folder redirection to the appropriate servers.  Does this sound like a viable plan?  ( about 45 total workstations. 15 in one location, 30 in the other)

(The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. ). Group Policy processing aborted. " we have checked ip address, flushed dns and re-registered dns and the error is still happening. event log error is Event id 1054 . any suggestions would be appreciated

Hi all,

I am having many problems with the path limit of Microsoft OS's up till now. I have read this article:

https://www.ghacks.net/2016/05/27/microsoft-260-long-path-limit/

Often I need to do data migrations and so on, running into long path problems. Also regular users meet this problem from time till time, more than ever.

Anyone any idea when this feature is actually going to be released?

I just rebuilt this clients main server this weekend and they've got an old legacy server that hosts some accounting software. A Few users RDP into it to work so after I rebuilt the DC and got everything configured I rebooted the 2003 Server Machine and now am unable to RDP into it. I'm getting RPC Server Unavailable message at the RDP login window. I've checked and the RPC service is running on that server.

Has anyone ever seen this before? thoughts?

Hi

I've created a task that runs a batch file to copy 3 files from a folder on the local c:\

1 file is copied to another folder on the C:\.
1 file is copied to a folder on a mapped drive.
1 file is copied to another folder on the same mapped drive.

If I run the batch file manually it runs fine, and copies all the files, to all the required locations.

However, if I then run the Scheduled Task, only the local file copy works and I get a 0x1 error in the scheduled task.  This happens whether the task is run "on demand" or is set to run at a certain time.

The user that has mapped the drive, created the batch file and scheduled task and is set to run the job is a member of the local admin group.

The user is able to create new files in each of the locations on the mapped drive so I don't think there is a permissions issue, but I could be wrong.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.  If I need to provide any more information then please let me know.

Thanks
Matthew

I am trying to add Windows 2008 R2 server to windows 2003 Domain server. It says " the following error occurred attempting to join the domain the specified server cannot perform the requested operation." I did almost all the steps i found online to troubleshoot but none of them worked. When i try to join other machines to the same domain, it gets joined so no issue with Domain Controller. I have disabled IPV6 in the machine having trouble joining to the domain. I can ping domain with server name and FQDN. DNS is set to DC server IP. Below is the NetSetup log:

I have inherited an old Windows 2003 server that still believes it is a DC. There is an application running on this Server that I want to preserve. Active Directory has been corrupted so the normal demotion commands wont work. How can I force this demotion, can I edit the registry?

I am trying to get a straight forward answer on this one, we have a ESXi 6.5 and it only has one guest: Windows Server 2003 with a c: drive and d: drive (they are separate drives).

We want to expand the d: drive, there is plenty of space on the host (over 3TB free space).  While the server was running we went into edit settings and changed the size from 250gb to 350gb)When we applied the settings all it said in the main windows was warning and the drive size did not change.  

Do we need to shut the server down and the perform the same above steps?  Or is there a way this can be done live?  Or is there a complete different way this should be done?

Thanks in advance...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,
I need to access file system on this very old server (Windows 2003 server R2).
There is embedded Sata RAID controller.
It seems both disks are reported as "smart failed"..
What chances I have to access data?
Thank you

After I've migrated all the roles from my 2003 R2 STD to a 2012 R2 STD it did not bring the sysvol and netlong folder, I have not yet demoted the old 2003 domain and was able to bring the sysvol to the 2012 domain using the link below, however still not able to bring the netlogon folder. Any ideas?

I have 10TB of client data, spread across hundred of millions of files, avg size 200KB, stored in millions of folders, served from an EC2 instance acting like a traditional NAS, using Windows File System on a Windows Server 2003 R2 EC2 server.

These data are uploaded and downloaded through our Classic ASP site, served from IIS websites, reading/writing data through UNC (network path) to the NAS.

Storage on AWS are expensive (storage+snapshot+ec2), so I would like to move to S3, but still maintain proper security, so files are not available to everyone on the Internet if they know URL.

Any recommendations to this approach? How to maintain support through Classic ASP? Anyone did this storage migration in the past in same Windows environment? How to maintain client security?

Hi experts
We have right now in our environment
Active directory Schema functional level 2003 and we still need it it is a long story why but right now we have to keep it like this
So we have some domain control servers running windows server 2003 and some 2098 r2

We have exchange server 2010 sp 3

My question
In such environment can we upgrade our exchange to 2013

And if the answer yes

I heard if we have exchange 2013 we can upgrade to 2016 on the fly I mean no need to install new servers and make mailbox migration and stuff like that

Please correct me and give some detailed information

Thanks in advance

Hi,

If there's anyone out there that can think back far enough, I have a friend that's still using SBS 2003.  At some point last week it disappeared off the network.  We did manage to get it back on the network by using an alternative onboard NIC, but since then multiple services refuse to fire up.  There are multiple error codes, all seem to point at dependancy issues.  Among many, the Workstation Service does not start, along with many of the Exchange Services.  Has anyone experienced something like this historically and resolved it?
