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).

I want to make a 2012 member server a domain controller.  

Current set up is two Server 2003 domain controllers.  One of them is having issues so I want to demote it and promote a 2012 member server to a domain controller.  Can this be done if the FSMO domain controller is running Server 2003?  

Thanks,
cja

Dear Friends!
 
I have a Windows Server 2003 acting as a Domain Controller within my LAN. There is no other assigned role to that machine. Two days ago I saw it running out of space (HDD=67GB) because of WSUS folder and specifically SUSDB.mdf whichc is almost 57GB! What should I do in order to save my space! Is there any simple way to do it?

We have an old ERP solution that only runs on a 32-bit server. Currently it is running on an old local Windows Server 2003 R2 with Service Pack 2.

I believe Windows Server 2008 was the last "server" product that Microsoft released that was available as 32-bit. As a test, I built a new server VM running 2008 but my ERP solution didn't like it at all. So I deleted the VM. (It was still 32-bit so other than the fact that 2003 is EOL, there was really no benefit anyway)

I'm not really interested in upgrading the server that the ERP solution is running on because (1) 32-bit is limited to 4 gb ram and (2) as I mentioned, the 2008 instance was a bust.

What I AM interested in doing, is moving this VM from my local server to a VPS or a cloud hosted solution.

Web hosting companies like A2 Hosting or Rackspace, etc ... they DO offer VPS hosting but they come pre-loaded with Server 2012, which means it's 64-bit, which means my ERP solution won't run on it. And since these are not the types of hosting plans where I can BYOOS (bring your own OS), it's not a solution for me.

Is there a way for me to take my VM (prebuilt, running Windows Server 2003 and my ERP already installed) and just "upload" it somewhere?

I don't know much about Azure but from my limited research, it appears you CAN spin up your own Azure server instance and during the deployment, choose your own OS.  The problem is, since Win Server 2003 is EOL, it's not one of the OS options that you get in the …

I am new to kerberos and setting up kerberos servers.



What is the difference between realms and domain_realm?   Also, what is realm ?

[realms]
    MYSERVER.COM = {
        kdc = kdc.myserver.com:88
        admin_server = kdc.myserver.com:749
        default_domain = myserver.com
    }

[domain_realm]
    .myserver.com = MYSERVER.COM
     myserver.com = MYSERVER.COM


From the client,  how do I check which is one is the kerberos server?

We have two customers where we've had to upgrade a Windows Server 2003 R2 domain controller to Windows Server 2016, along with all of the associated Active Directory schema updates.  The upgrades/migrations went beautifully and everything has been fully functional ever since.  However, on both networks, we had a Windows 7 workstation or two which had adapters which displayed "unauthenticated" and they could not access resources on the server.  When we removed the computers from the domain and tried to rejoin them, the server credentials would no longer work, even though the password had not changed to the Administrator account.  In addition, we could no longer login to the Windows 2016 server directly from the console - incorrect userid or password.

I remembered that when upgrading from Windows Server 2003 R2 to Windows Server 2012 R2, you would encounter the same problem when the machine password expired (Kerberos) - something concerning the difference in encryption standards between the two versions of Windows Server.  In both cases, we were able to reboot the server or workstation, effectively resetting the AES key and allowing login with the Administrator (and all other) credentials.  This bug was reportedly eliminated by a Microsoft Hotfix for Windows Server 2012 R2  (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2989971/can-t-log-on-after-changing-machine-account-password-in-mixed-windows), but I figured that this would have been included with Windows Server 2016.  Am I …

We have a AS400 server which is running v5r4 of the OS. It has an integrated windows 2003 server. To get antivirus installed in the windows 2003 server we had to make some registry modifications. The original registry settings were backed up. When the windows 2003 starts it blue screens and says the windows session manager cant start. We have already tried "Last know good configuration" and "Safe mode". Both of these yield the same blue screen. If we could only boot from a CD and run windows restore or some utility to re import the registry settings. But there seems to be no way to tell the AS400 to boot the integrated server from the CD instead of the hard drive.  Please HELP.

We have a AS400 server which is running v5r4 of the OS. It has an integrated windows 2003 server. The windows server install got corrupted and is down.  We would like to pull the data of of the windows install without the windows 2003 server running.  Is it possible? Since the disks are integrated between the AS400 and windows I thought it might be possible since the Windows drive are showing up as AS400 virtual disks with the integrated server being off.

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,
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?

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…
