I have a old system 2003 SP2 32 bit that  I P2V.  When I boot the system I cannot connect via RDP cause its not getting a network connection and not installing integrated services.
I tried moving the VM to a 2008 Host and still get the same problem.  I also tried legacy adapters and tried adding network card and still same problems.  I have no way to connect and logon to install integrated services.

I have Domain Server 2016 Environment and all workstations are win-10 and some Macs. We have legacy file server 2003 that is quite BIG, we use it for backups and old file-storage. For now we have no option to transfer all files, to big and no budget. But now, some colleagues would like once in a while to access those old files, on the fly.

All Mac users can access those files, no problem.
All Win-10 workstations/laptops, they cannot access them.

Any options? Please.

I have tried this bellow, do not work.

First i'm sorry for my english.
My problem is with my SharePoint Website running on MOSS 2007 on a Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0 ans ASP Net 2.0.
My website was working very well but after some configuration on ISS console i got this issue.
When i try to access to my website with this URL: http://myserver i got an error Message : Content view is not allowed for this virtual directory.
But when i try with this URL http://mywebsite/default.aspx it's working but my CSS and JS file are not loaded. So i get an aspx page without my customisation.
I tried to give all right to my directory wwwroot to different user like thé ASP user, to ISS user ... Without any result.
The strange thing it's :
- when i try to go to my default site which use ASP Net 1.0 it's working well...
- When i try to read my SharePoint list from ACCESS 2007 or directly from the web by the direct URL it's Works
- but when i try to open my website from SharePoint designer it's impossible.

Thanks on avance for any help.

Why Exchange 2003 Emails keep stacking in Local Delivery Queue

Dear expert,

I need to stop or disable or start or start-delayed services using powershell or bat or anything that works.
I know there is several ways using: get-service and sc.
Here is what things go very difficult:
The command source machine is a domain joined server and the target machine is a not domain joined server. I got this error:
Get-Service : Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer 'Server'. This operation might require other privileges.
Im out of idea... any tips and solutions?

After 6 years, we replaced the battery on an APC SmartUPS SMT1500 that is 6 years old, running a SBS server that is also 6 years old.  The system says there was no battery connected.  The battery was pretty warm and bulging.

I guess it died completely, but 6 years is pretty good? Yes, should have replaced it sooner.  It wasn't set up so we installed APC PowerChute business app and set up email notificiations.

We are getting loads of AVR Trim on / off messages.  Is that normal? Just ignore them? Is the software set too stringent? (there's an upper and lower voltage and a sensitivity.  Seems that's the only settings.

This is in central NJ / Metro NY area so not in the sticks.  Power doesn't go out in the office.  And the battery lasted a long time?  So the power can't be too bad?

Is there a setting I should change? Stop getting these messages emailed to me.  Here's a sample of the email messages over a bunch of days.  Too many?

Hi, I have inherited a network running around 80 Win7+ PC's, SQL2000 on WS2003, Filesharing on WS2008R2 + WS2012, and ASP.net/MySQL appn on WS2008R2.  AD is on WS2003 at that functional level.

I need to upgrade to WS2016 platform, keeping ASP.net/MySQL appn on WS2008R2 and SQL2000 on WS2003 as is for a few months until they can be retired (some users will require access to all servers).

I am unsure as to whether and how to simply replace (2008) or upgrade (2012) the other servers to WS2016 (leaving ADFL at 2003 for now) moving DC/DNS to new DC's, hoping the WS2003 boxes will continue to function in the new environment, and if so whether to leave the legacy boxes on the existing domain and create a new domain for the other servers etc.

Any related experience or advice gratefully received.

Hi,

The server we have is a Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 which contains Microsoft Exchange Mail Server.

On this, we wished to create a distribution group called HR.

The distribution group would allow for someone to send an email to our HR email address and the email then forwarded to the HR group where both email addresses in this group would receive the email.

When I tested sending emails to this HR email address, emails would send internally from PCs connected to the same network but did not send from an external email address.

Here are some configurations with the distribution group:

Group name: HR
Group scope: Universal
Group Type: Distribution

What can I do to configure the distribution group correctly?

Thanks,
Robbie

I have a number of robots which are actually computers running xp sp3 which are connected to a windows 2003 server domain.,

I would like these computers to auto-log in when the power is first applied, using a domain account, instead of stopping at the log in screen.

I've gone to the users section of the control panel and the message You can not change this users password appears.  I suspect that's because the user is a domain account.

Can anyone help?

I need proper syntax to robocopy from \\server\w:\bulk (but .wav files only and maintain folder structure) to \\Server\G:\

This is on an old Win 2003 server. I know the /MT option is not available...what is the best syntax to get all the .wav files, exclude everything else but maintain the folder structure?

Hi Guys,

Got an issue in a small network.
all the websites working, except anz banking site login.
the anz website works, i can browse through the site. its just the anz internet banking login page. when users enter their credentials,
it keeps loading and comes as page not available. after spending some time, i found out its dns issues. but could not fix it properly.

if i do ipconfig/flushdns - its working good. again if i restart computer. it does not work.
so my temporary fix is - after restarting/turnon computer i need to run ipconfig/flushdns to make anz site works.  
and it happens in all computers.

and i tried changing dns settings in router and also giving static ip in computers. nothing works. only flushdns command make it work.  
how do i fix it ? any solution.

thank you guys

Hi All,

I need to do an in-place upgrade on a Windows 2003 32bit server.

I have the 2008 32bit dvd and it appears to install without issue.  But it hangs when the operating system gets to the green loading bar (looks like a caterpillar).

In safe mode it gets upto;

Loaded:  \Windows\system32\drivers\crcdsk.sys

Reading a couple of posts I thought swapping the BusLogic controller to a LSI Logic SAS would help, but it hasnt.

Some extra info:  I suspect the original server was P2V'd and the ESX version is 5.5


Any suggestions

I got a PS1 script that's inside a batch job, that PS1 script runs a sql script, I've scheduled a batch job to run that PS1 using Windows server schedule, the scheduler runs and gives the timestamp as having run, when in actuality the the batch (whether it ran or not) doesn't execute the PS1 script, thus not executing the SQL script.

Now, if I was to double click the batch job manually, it runs the PS1 script with no problem, so the problem is something to do with running this particular batch job via the scheduler.

Please advise.
Thx

I am running WSS 3.0 SP2 and SQL 2005 Workgroup edition along with IIS 6.0 on my domain controller running Windows Server 2003 SP2. Recently, I demoted the domain controller because I moved that role to a server running Windows Server 2016. The moment I demoted the windows server 2003, my share point site and the central admin console for share point both stopped working, throwing  an Application error message. I then disconnected Share point from the SQL using Share point config wizard and tried to reconnect it.  Every time I try to reconnect it, the config wizard keeps saying the username/password combo was incorrect though I know for a fact they are correct. What could be the reason for this and what would you suggest I do at this point? I really appreciate your help on this and if you need more info, feel free to request!

Thanks,

The main objective is free space on a C: Drive on windows 2003 server.

The winsxs folder is the only folder I could empty to save space. I used cleanmgr.exe to clean but it always fail.

Is there any other way to clean the winsxs folder?

manually deleting folders inside winsxs that are dated 2009 will cause any issues?

Any help is appreciate it.

Thank you,

I am planning to upgrade a 70 user network from AD on WS2003 32bit to 2008 then 2016 64bit.

There have been some concerns raised that SQL7 may not interact reliably with the upgraded ADbut I wonder if anyone has any specific experiences they could share.

thanks in advance.
