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).

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.

Cloud Class® Course: MCSA MCSE Windows Server 2012

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Hi

Busy with a project upgrading server for 5 AD site network.
All sites were on Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003 except for 1 site which I upgraded to Server 2012 R2 DCs and Exchange 2007 on a Windows server 2008 R2 machine.

Then over the weekend I upgraded 2 sites with Server 2012 r2 DCs and 2 x Exchange 2007 on a Windows Server 2008R2 machine.
Most of the mailboxes are migrated to the Exchange 2007 server, but emails are queuing on the 2 Exchange 2007 servers.
I also think during the installation of Exchange 2007, I missed the step to specify the Bridgehead Exchange 2003 server, and not 100% sure if this is the route cause.

I also ran the PS command to create the routing groups for Exchange 2003 to route emails to Exchange 2007, but emails are still not leaving the queues.

Attached is the Errror in Queue Viever.

Please please can you assist.

Hi All,

I wanted to know how to audit Active Directory's setup in determining where a security group has been configured? Preferably using a Windows tool or a Microsoft product. This is on a Server 2003/2008-R2.

Thanks In advance

We have a Server 2003 file server running in on VMware ESXi.  The C:\ drive got corrupt but, all the data sits on a separate partition that didn't get affected and is still intact.  I removed the good partition/drive from the virtual and rebuilt the C:\, joined it to the domain and added the file share partition/drive back.  Now, people can access the file share without no problems but, can't manipulate any data.  The partition/drive and set to Read Only and the check box to uncheck it is greyed out.  No matter what I do, all files and folders on the share is set to Read Only.  Now, if I go directly on to the server via VMware console, I have not issues.  The problem only occurs via the network share.  Everyone's Rights and Permissions are how they're supposed to be but, something is superseding those explicit permissions.  So far, I've done the following:

Changed the owner to my domain admin account
Removed the Everyone group and added the Domain Users group
Removed all inheritable rights
Did the attrib -r command (various ones)
Disjoined the server from the domain and rejoined it

Hi,


An error occurred while consolidating disks: 12 (Cannot allocate memory). See attached error.

Power-up the VM and check event log

event id: 7028

The Fekern Registry Key denied access to System account programs so the service control manager took ownership of the registry key.

How to troubleshoot to identity the real root cause.

Tks.

Windows 2003 Server stopped pinging and Remote desktop accessibility after reboot because of Event ID: 4292
 " The IPSec driver has entered Block mode. IPSec will discard all inbound and outbound TCP/IP network traffic that is not permitted by boot-time IPSec Policy exemptions. User Action: To restore full unsecured TCP/IP connectivity, disable the IPSec services, and then restart the computer. For detailed troubleshooting information, review the events in the Security event log."

We fixed it by run the command ""regsvr32 polstore.dll", command but need help to find root cause

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.

Is it possible to do an In-place upgrade on a windows server 2003 R2 Standard x86 to Windows server 2008 Standard via mounted virtual CD drive?  The driver is a ELBY CLONEDRIVE SCSI CdRom Device.

I currently have the .iso mounted and am going through the install.  I am at the part where i am about to start the upgrade.  Should i proceed?  i am just concerned that once it starts to install, is it going to have to boot to the CD for the in place upgrade? or will it just install over the 2003 r2 OS staight from the .iso?

We have created a new function in Excel using Power Query as follows:-

(page as number) as table =>
let
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://myurl/?format=json&page=" & Number.ToText(page), [Headers=[Authorization="Basic mysecretapikey"]])),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(Source, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error)
in
    #"Converted to Table"

Open in new window


We then have a separate query as follows:-

let
    NoPages = {1..15},
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(NoPages, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    RenameColumnToPage = Table.RenameColumns(#"Converted to Table",{{"Column1", "Page"}}),
    fGetTicketColumn = Table.AddColumn(RenameColumnToPage, "Custom", each fGetTickets([Page])),
    ExpandColumn = Table.ExpandTableColumn(fGetTicketColumn, "Custom", {"Column1"}, {"Column1"}),
in
    ExpandColumn

Open in new window


The problem we are having is that the expanded column only shows data for page 1, all other pages come back with no data (Which we know to not be correct).

Authentication for https://myurl is set to anonymous as it is using the Headers property (Which we wanted to use to avoid our staff needing credentials).
When we remove the header, and update the authentication to basic and add in the details there, everything works as expected.

Any help troubleshooting this issue would be really helpful.

Hi all,
Working on a domain that has a few 2003 DC's on and i'm 99% certain i've got everything ticked off, with this i mean;

>Moved FSMO roles
>NTP synchronization updated
>DNS reference across all DCs and servers
>DHCP updated

I've noticed that it's a Terminal Licensing server, or at least it used to be. If i open Terminal Server Licensing it say's there's no terminal license server available.

However if i go into control panel and licensing i can see the domain and clients

If i go into Control Panel and click on licensing it says product 'Windows Server' and the license is Per Device or Per User. (See image)

Also in the licensing snap in i can see the domain and clients dating back 10 years up until today connecting to the DC, is this just them authenticating?

The DC has been switched off for two weeks and i haven't noticed any issues, i've ran DCDIAG and NETDIAG and everything looks good.

I'd love to know what this does and if it's needed? Ideally once the server has been DCPROMO i'd like to decommission it so it's not on the network anymore, i don't want to keep it running with these defunct roles. If anyone has any advice around this it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

All my Windows 10 computers on my Windows domain have "some new" functions that by default blocks any connection attempt TO THEM.
It is not the default Windows Firewall.

I know that moreover the firewall, they added another blocking mecanism : when I go in control panel, network ... , Advanced Settings: there is a "profile " système there. I do see it as "Current Profile DOMAIN" and there are 2 settings: "Activate network discovery" and "Activate files and printer Sharing" and both of them are Active. I have to manually make them active on each Windows 10 because I didn't find in my domain GPO the settings for that. Do you know if that can be controlled by GPO and Windows 2003 GPO also...?

I've read through many posts discussing similar issues, but have been unable to successfully apply any accepted solutions when they seemed to apply to my situation.  

This issue is on a 2003 Domain controller, the last of it's kind among 9 other 2012R2 DCs.  The only reason this hasn't been removed before now is the same reason I can't just kill it and do metadata cleanup now to remove it - it still has some applications and services which were built some 10 years ago by others no longer with us that we are still reverse engineering in an attempt to make compatible with our more modern operating systems and environment.  That being said, this physical machine has now been a domain controller for 11 years (I'll call it DC1) and was at one time the PDC.  It's also possible that it was the only DC at one time, though I don't know for sure.  It hosted a Certificate Authority, Microsoft Exchange server, Microsoft SQL server, Web services, and the other a fore noted proprietary items.  The Exchange, and SQL items were removed prior to now, but not necessarily as gracefully as would have been desired.  The environment is a Single Forest, Single Domain environment, with a handful of sites each with their own DC with AD DNS.  DNS is split-brain.

I've have cloned the important items from environment in an attempt to do find solutions for this and other issues ahead of the live demotion.  The test environment consists of an offline virtual copy of DC1 together with a restored …
