Windows server 2003 DC - wont sync time from PDC. I  always have 10 min difference.
One DC is OK and sync from another DC - which sync from PDC.
Second DC with 10 min difference sync from the same DC as the first one..
When I try to resync - I get "Sending resync command to local computer, The command completed successfully" - but the time wont update...
Even when trying to sync from "time.google.com" or other on the web - I always get "The command completed successfully" but time wont update..

What should I check ?

I'm going to be converting a set of interconnected Workgroups/Subnets into a Domain/Site/Subnet arrangement.
As this evolves (for a number of good reasons), there will be a Domain sites/subnets and there will be Workgroup sites/subnets.

While in this interim state, in at least one case, there will be Workgroup file folder shares that need to be accessed by a set of Domain Users.

What's the best way to do this?
For example, I can set up a Local Group on the workstation and give share access to the group.  But how does this help the Domain Users?  That's what I'm missing here.....

Hi,

I have an old Windows Server 2003 (don't ask) and I cannot sync the clipboard for some reason.

I cannot copy and paste, although clipboard is ticked as an option in the settings for RDP before I connect.

Is there any other setting I could be missing to get the clipboard working again from my pc to the server and back again?

Hi,
I created Linked server from Windows Server 2008 R2 to  windows server 2003 Standard Edition SP2
Which tests successfully.
I run a  SELECT statement against a table in a SQL Server 2000 (yes, you heard right, 2000) database on the linked server and get the following error
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink" returned message "Unspecified error".
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink" returned message "The stored procedure required to complete this operation could not be found on the server. Please contact your system administrator.".
Msg 7311, Level 16, State 2, Line 40
Cannot obtain the schema rowset "DBSCHEMA_TABLES_INFO" for OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink". The provider supports the interface, but returns a failure code when it is used.

Any guidance appreciated.
Thanks

We have a small domain network in one of our sites, using Windows server 2003 as domain controller and the router  is the DHCP ..
I want to add the DHCP rule to DC.

1- Can I set DHCP rule on DC by MAC address?
2- If I add the rule - and activate it ? Is it starting to work immediately ?
3- I need to stop DHCP on router and then activate on DC ? what will happen if both are active at the same time ?

I had this question after viewing Exchange Server 2010 - Error to recreate Powershell Virtual Directory.

I got the same problem, I followed the guidance in that topic but I cannot see the web.config created in the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\PowerShell. Then I checked by run the Get-PowerShellVirtualDirectory to make sure this folder can be recognized by system but it seemed that it wasn't. Please see the pic attached.

it fails everyday. saying the error below

The backup operation attempted at '‎2019‎-‎05‎-‎14T04:00:10.764159700Z' has failed to start, error code '2155348040' (There is not enough free space on the backup storage location to back up the data.). Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.
