We are investigating a problem where a user's AD account goes into Account Locked status.

We need to extract Account Lockout events from the Security Log of a Windows 2003 server.  We are not permitted to run additional software on the server.  We have looked at Eventcomb, which does do the job, but testing has shown that it can't complete a filter of the log before the log wraps and this causes the tool to fail.

We know the event IDs we need.  How can we extract or export these events?

Thanks and regards...Paul

Hi all.
Could really use some help here.
We're using an old Server 2003 VM to run Exchange 2007.
We've run into plenty of issues here and there but nothing TERRIBLE up until recently.
It looks like the:
- Offline Address Book (OAB) has an issue (Task 'email@domain.com' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object cannot be found')
- Autodiscover might have an issue.
- Out of Office Assistant is no longer working (Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable.)
- Free/Busy scheduling info no longer works (No free/busy information could be retrieved)

I'm hoping someone with a similar setup can go over the permissions with me so I can see where I messed up.
Thanks in advance!

Hello,

We have a old windows 2003 server with 4gb of ram with hardware raid 5. We are going to retire this server, but before we do so we need to transfer/clone/mirror about 900gb of data.  The problem is that it has almost 6 million files and any type of data transfer I have tried runs really slow.  I am thinking if there is a way to do with clonezilla or any other software that you guys can suggest.

Thanks

Hi,
is there any way to get access to a new 2016 file server from an old windows 2003 Server using net use?

When I try to access the 2016 server via \\computer name I get
"Windows cannot find \\fileserver.domain.com. Check spelling  and try again, or try searching for the item by clicking the Start button and then clicking Search"

ping servername - works
ping ip address - works
net view \\servername - doesn't work (error 64)

thanks in advance.

Hello all,

I've been stumped on this issue for the past week and figured I'd ask around for possible solutions.

Issue:
Company's internal website (http://companyweb) redirects to an external website (colfaxcorp.com), BUT only on two local workstations. The redirect isn't profile specific, and only these two workstations are affected regardless of the web browser used.

What I've tried:
Clearing caches and cookies
Various malware scanners. malwarebytes, hitman pro, tddskiller, and more.    No threats found.
DNS flush on workstations
Modifying the host file. (which actually solved the immediate problem, but removing my changes reverts back to the same issue)

Anyone have any insight on this issue?

All of a sudden, we start seeing random number Services on every computer joined to our domain.   See attached picture.

random number Services
We are able to use "sc delete service_name" to delete these Services but they come back within a few hours.

We scan every computer with AVG, MalwareByte, MSE etc..  Nothing stops these Services from being created.

So far there appears to be harmless.  But we know there are bugs inside our network.

Has anyone seen this before ?

We have an old domain controller and one of its drives failed in the RAID. We were able to fix the drive issue. Luckily we had another domain controller to rely on. Unfortunately, this Server also stores our Sharepoint intranet site. When we boot it up normally, it gives a lsass.exe-system error: Security Accounts Manager initialization failed and when you click on ok, it reboots the Server. We are able to boot into directory recovery mode with no errors. We no longer are interested in this machine being a domain controller. How can I get passed this error and possibly demote the Server? I sthere anything i can do in directory recovery mode to resolve the issue or replace or repair lsass.exe just to get the server back on the network?

In December 2015 after an Internal Audit finding’s for using master domain admin account we decided to rename and to change the password of these accounts of our 3 AD domains After that we put the password in an envelope placed in a safe for each AD domain. No body know the new password after that.

But we observed in May 2016 that the lastlogon timestamp attribute continue to change for 1 domain account . I’m sure that not interactive logon was done because the value of lastlogon on each DC doesn’t exist.

In May 2017 we do some search on internet and we found some articles in forum about this strange phenomenal.
We doing lot of action to fix that but no change.

In august 2017 I decided to activate Audit logon events Success on DC and to check couple by day the lastlogon timestamp value. One day the value change and I found 3 events in security events with the same date and time with the name of a member server.

On the member server security event log we observed a multiple logon event by day for this account. But I didn’t find schedule task or Windows service that they used this account.

With onecolleague we observed that when you start any windows service you obtain in security log 4 events one for SYSTEM user and 3 for this account.  In the event with event ID 552 we don’t understand how and why the account is using.

Type de l'événement : Audit des succès
Source de l'événement : Security
Catégorie de l'événement : Ouverture/Fermeture de session…

Hi,

As part of a project, we have created a File Path in the Machine and tried to connect from Mainframe to that destination(Path), it is giving Network path not found.

However we have thought to restart the FTPSITE will resolve this issue but there is an outage if we did a restart to other clients who are connecting to the destination.

Please suggest is there way to complete this issue without FTPSITE restart.  

Thanks for your help in advance.
Venkatesh.

We had a XXX ransomeware attack on a cloud server running Windows 2003 R2. I would like to reinstall an old application, Accpac 5.0, from the installation files on the server but each time I run the setup.exe program I get the NTVDM error. The installation files look intact. I suspect this is related to a problem Microsoft had with WOW32.dll on the server and the16 bit programs talking to each other. We have run these setup programs before without this error years ago or we were able to ignore it. Does anyone know a fix for this?
