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 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.

Hi,

I just setup Ubuntu and it's updated.

I also installed and setup Samba, shared a folder and set permissions.

From my Windows 7 Pro, I can access the shared folder I created in Ubuntu.  I can even change its content.

From Windows Server 2003, I can't.  I get the following error message:
Login unsuccessful.  ... Be sure your username and password are correct.

Can you please help me?

Thanks

We run an oracle 10g database server running on a windows 2003 server for a web application and we are noticing when our reporting application tries to access the database or we try to access the database through sql developer there are connection wait times up to 6 minutes.

We have 3 TNS listeners on ports 1521, 1522 and 1526 whats strange is our web application running on tomcats uses listener 1526 and thankfully queries are run immediately and never encounter a problem but outside of tomcat we getting a lot of "ORA-12518: TNS: listener could not hand off client connection tips" errors

Since the issue started we rebooted the database server to resolve it and until  it occurred again but it's becoming more frequent and we can't keep rebooting everytime as a solution.

I tried restarting TNS listener service in the services panel but it does nothing to resolve the issue.

Would anyone know how we determine what is happening and how we can resolve it.

I'd like to patch an old 2003 server with several Windows updates.  Does anyone know of a relatively easy way of doing this without using WSUS.  Failing that, can anyone tell me how to install WSUS and how to use it?
Thanks.

I have new Windows Server 2012 R2 that I had set some permissions on some folders on the D drive. I backed up files from a Windows Server 2003 SP2 and restored to the D drive on this 2012 Server using Veritas Backup 2012. Now my drive is not accessible, access is denied. I can map shares and get access to them but still have not managed to get the D drive to be accessible. I am logging on as a domain admin. Any idea of what I'm missing? Thanks.
