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).

CoCreateInstance returns E_NOINTERFACE from COM service (service restart fixes it)

Once in a while, my COM ATL server service will get into a state whereby my C++ client application (also a windows COM ATL service) will start failing to create a COM object due to a E_NOINTERFACE error. But when I connect to this same COM server via a C++ client application (console) it is able to connect to it. Also, when I restart my COM ATL server service, my COM ATL service (client) is able to connect to the server.

I've have attached a file (sensitive information), explaining the problem more in depth.COMATLServiceIssue.docx

Hello,

I have some files which I want to compress to a single file and send it to some users.

When users clicked on the compressed file, I want the extract files to be delivered into their DOWNLOAD\APP1 folder - if APP1 does not existed, create one.

Would someone suggest how this can be done?

The user workstations are either WIN7 or WIN10.  

Many thanks...

We have a network which runs on Windows Server 2003.

Staff here login to their own accounts on their Windows 10 PCs and their accounts are on our network.

They want to login to their accounts on the new Windows 10 PCs in our meeting room.

I know how to do things on Windows 10 PCs like seeing the network and other PCs on the network through this PC.

How would I setup staff to be able to login to their accounts through our network on these PCs?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

We have a HP Workstation xw4200 with Windows 2003 server installed on it.

This unit is usually left on all day every day.

This unit has worked fine for years with no problems.

Yesterday, I noticed that the server had turned off.

When I pressed the power button this this unit, the following occurred in sequence:

1. Green power LED appeared for 6 seconds
2. 1 second with power LED not lit
3. Power LED blinked RED 6 times, once per second, then 2 second pause (Beeping sound heard for every time power LED blinked RED)
4. The 3rd step repeated 4 times after each 2 second pause (total 5 times)
5. The 3rd step repeated but with no sound heard

I pressed on the power button on this unit and the power LED was no longer lit.

Any time I try to turn on this unit, the same 5 steps as above occurs.

1. What could be the reason for these beeps?

2. How can we solve our problem and get this server to boot?

Thanks,
Robbie

MVMC Connection Option Screeb Warning on Summary ScreenConvertion Process Screen
Hi,
 
 I am trying to convert Windows 2003 Server running virtual machine "FS1_W2003-recovered"  in VMWare ESXi server into Hyper-v virtual machine using Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter and have some questions:
 (1) In Connection option screen, I am not sure if the message means or applies to my situation?
 (2) In Connection option screen, why I can't select "On" for "Final state of source virtual machine"?
 (3) In Summary Screen, should I be concerned about the warnings (1. OS not supported  2. having one USB device) ?
(4) In Completion screen, I see "Uninstall tools" on the 3rd line. I assume it will uninstall VMWare tools? If so, why does it do that? Will it alter or harm existing VMWare VM in any shape or form?  This is where I CANCELLED the conversion because I was not sure what would happen to source VM.

Hello. I am looking for advice on setting up a secondary domain administrator account. We are a small business and I have been doing the IT alone up to this point. We are bringing in someone else to help and I'm not sure how to configure their access so that they aren't a top tier administrator but can still get things done. The might be joining machines to the domain or setting up new users in active directory. We would not want them to edit our NTFS file share permissions.

Is there any way to give someone enough ability to do what they need to do without being able to take over the entire domain?

Thank you.

We Just took on a new client that is running SBS2003 as the DC and they also have a VMware Server Running 4 guests one of them Is the secondary domain controller.
There are around 9 users on the domain, and we would like to know if it will be easier to just create a new Domain or go through the whole process of backing up their profiles and adding them to the new domain. then restoring their profiles.

If we do go with a new Domain what would be the easiest way to setup the Workstations without having to recreate a profile on the workstations. Is there any freeware out there that will help with this issue.

I have a Windows Server 2003 (due to legacy software; not connected to the internet) machine that is getting a BSOD upon normal boot.  It can boot into Safe Mode, but there is nothing significant showing in Event Viewer or boot logging as far as I can tell.  Here is what the BSOD says:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
STOP: 0x00000050 (0x800000D6, 0x00000000, 0x808945CF, 0x00000000)

No recent hardware or software changes.  I have switched motherboards, CPU, power supply, and memory with identical spares and the same symptom continues.  Have found several references to the BSOD, but no solid leads yet.  One suggestion was to run SFC /scannow, but that doesn't work in safe mode.  Not sure if there's another way to run it.  Another suggestion was to do a hotfix to update win32k.sys, but it appears I already have a newer version.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank You

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

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 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,
