Windows Server 2003 was based on Windows XP and was released in four editions: Web, Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter. It also had derivative versions for clusters, storage and Microsoft’s Small Business Server. Important upgrades included integrating Internet Information Services (IIS), improvements to Active Directory (AD) and Group Policy (GP), and the migration to Automated System Recovery (ASR).

Hi, finally got the green light to do away with a 2003 server.
incumbent IT provider set this up for them.

their desktops are influenced by folder redirection GP for:
application data
desktop
My Doc
My Pic
Start menu

I ran the rsop.msc and it identified the default domain policy\user configuration\win settings\folder redirection, associated to group everyone and the unc path it refers to for each category, which is great. however i cannot find any entries for anything in the default domain policy.

went to aduc, right clicked on the domain, properties, group policy tab. i see default domain policy, choose edit  there are no entries under user configuration\win settings\folder redirection for the influenced folders of folder redirection

the goal is to move these source folders to a new server but can't until i figure out how to redirect it to the new place through the group policy its using..

appreciate the assistance

I am developing a printserver app and on the oldest Print Server is a windows 2003 server. When you query the Print Server for desiredn values instead of a straight IP Address you get for example IP_168.112.75.11 i NEED TO LOSE THE IP_ so I can access the network printer's web interface. I Know there's a replace command but I'm just looking for a quick answer that works I know this is easy for you Experts Please in VB.NET CONTEXT.

Dear experts,

I'm newbie to scripting so as always your help and time is very appreciated.

on source infrastructure : I have server1 on domain A with lots of local groups. all these local groups on server1 has domain groups and user members. it is a standalone windnows 2003 server.

on target infrastructure: I have domain B with windows 2012 server.

findings: I found below script on TechNet but slightly confused about copying nested members or group members to target DC. I could not understand on which line it is copying  group members to domain B domain Controller after creating Universal or Domain Groups on Domain controller. Surely, created groups must have their members.  

https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Migrate-local-file-server-7732203a#content

task completed: I used basic bat file on source server to get local groups and their members. For an example:  net localgroup "Administrators" >> GroupMembers.txt   this gave me the outcome I need but it I need to sort it correctly so that when I use it to import the outcome sorting should be easy to collect for the PowerShell mentioned in the link. I did NOT use POWERSHELL on Source Server.

question: I need to move all the local groups and their members from server1 domain A to Domain B Doman controllers so all groups are domain based groups instead of local groups as it is now in domain1 on Server1. Is this possible to achieve this with the script found in the below link? Is there any …

I was about to demote one of our DC's and in the middle of running dcpromo I got a message that says "This domain controller holds the last replica of the following application directory partitions: DC=LimitLogin,DC=mydomain,DC=com.  What do I need to do in order to properly demote this DC?

HI Experts,
Could you advise what is the most popular or leader in deployment script.

Currently, I'm using Jenkins, Shell, ANT, Maven along with product APIs (weblogic, etc). I'm thinking to considering the right tool (open source or licensed) which has the capability and meant for deployment. Since there are so many new products in the market now.

More interested in application deployment and to start exploring on Infrastructure side of it as well

Requesting you all to put me in the right direction please


Below it the landscape I found interesting.

Hi Experts,

I have this script tested and works as expected.  script checks the disks attached to server and checks the  drive label  of the disks and create a .txt file with the drive letter name ( such as "D drive.txt")  scripts is copied to  each server already and locally run.

For an example, if four disk found as D, E,Y,S on a local server, after running the script,  when I  go into each disk, I should have a .txt file saved in there as D drive.txt, E drive.txt , Y drive.txt and S drive.txt

batch script will be used on  mixture Windows OS versions. ( 2003 to 2012)

Issue: it works fine when script is run locally but when needed to run using PSexec, it produces different issues  even though script is on the local server and all PSexec should do is executing the script with remotely instead of logging into the each server. I have read on forums that vmic is not very friendly with PSExec, is there way to eliminate wmic from the script? here is forum talks about the issues it causes:  https://forum.sysinternals.com/psexec-hangs-when-running-wmicexe_topic14752.html

thanks in Advance

I have a 2003 server std that is a domain controller and exchange server.  There are 7 domains on this server.  I have been asked to upgrade exchange from 2007 to 2010.  Can someone guide me to a step by step process for doing this? I have never built an exchange server before, and need this to be successful.

Hi,

I plan moving 2 VMs, one 2003 and one XP (Virtual Machine) to a newer ESXi Host.

Because the HAL will change, I will need to reactive the XP / 2003. I assume we can activate the OS ? Anyone have tried an activation recently ?

I'm aware of all the issues running old OS in the network, but it's for an really old apps, internet is blocked and it's backup properly.

Thanks,

I'll be doing this tomorrow but wanted to get a head start as far as information goes today..

Situation:
Added a Windows essentials Server 2012 into an environment and set up so they both sync to each other.  Everything worked fine for a couple of weeks.  With intentions of getting rid of the 2003 server shortly. They were replicating to my knowledge because all of the users etc transferred over to the new server.

Fast forward to now the 2003 server is shutting down every hour saying that there is a license issue. This is causing clients to lose internet access and other resources.

What do I need to do to completely get rid of the 2003 server?
I was there this morning and the 2003 server is getting a journal wrap error?

I recently joined a company that has a Windows 2003 Std 32 bit server.  It's poorly documented and runs several programs including SQL server.

Currently it's running rather slow.  I'd like to increase the CPU and RAM.  Unfortunately 32bit WIndows 2003 Std seems to be limited to 4 cores and 4GB ram.

Is there an easy way to switch to 64bit version (any of them as we have a datacentre license on the ESXi)

Hi,
I will be building a new 2012 R2 domain controller and joining it to the current domain which has a 2003 domain controller. The new server will have a new subnet of say 10.10.10.0/24 with VLAN 10. The existing subnet is 192.168.10.0/24 no VLANs.

- What is the best method to join this DC to the domain and ensure they are able to replicate correctly
- I will need to make the 2012 R2 server the primary DC and demote the 2003 DC once replicated
- I will need to update how DHCP will work with multiple subnets and ensure that the existing and new can run side-by-side until i stop the existing subnet and allow the new subnet to be pushed out to workstations

Someone mentioned that i need to do some configuration on sites and services to get it to work correctly?

Thanks.

Hi,
So currently a site has no VLANs configured and is on 192.168.1.0/24 subnet. We are changing this so they have several subnets for servers, workstations, wifi, printers, so for instance 10.10.1.0/24, 10.10.2.0/24 etc etc.
Also moving the DHCP server 2003 R2 to a new server 2012 R2 server before upgrading to server 2016.

What is the best practice you would say at setting the new subnet up on the new DHCP server?
Do i just create a superscope with the different subnets and leave the old subnet off it completely? OR import the current DHCP config into the new server, then create a new scope with the new vlans, disable the old scope and test internet access?

Thanks
Craig

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server running virtually on XenServer. The server is a Citrix application server running WolfePak, which uses ADS (Advantage Database). We were previously on a Windows 2003 server. Since moving to Windows Server 2008 R2, we have been experiencing extreme slowness. At least twice as slow as the 2003 Server. I have read many articles saying there is a problem with ADS and Server 2008 R2. I have tried many things recommended with NO success. Can you help me find out what is going on? The new server has 1TB of space and 32GB of RAM. We are not close to running out of either. Help!

hi
I have a windows 2003 server as my domain controller with roaming profiles and folder redirection configured. I have had this server for a while now and I have migrated users from windows XP all the way to windows 10. M problem is now am almost out of space on this server but when I check how much data is on the users profile it doesn't correspond to what is on my quota statement, seems to be less than what is on the server. am also constantly seeing cases of "Your roaming profile was not completely synchronized" from a couple of them. how do I solve this?

thanks

Hi Experts,

I have this script tested and works as expected to report back local drives presented to windows OS. However I need your help to improve this or have completely new script to achieve this;

get drive letter of the disks on the  server;
create a .txt file with the drive letter name ( such as "D drive.txt")  
AND save it into the each disk  with its drive letter name

For an example, if four disk found as D, E,Y,S on a local server, after running the script,  when I  go into each disk, I should have a .txt file saved in there as D drive.txt, E drive.txt , Y drive.txt and S drive.txt

batch script will be used on  mixture Windows OS versions. ( 2003 to 2012)
is possible to achieve this?
