Have got a clients Server 2003 hard drive returned after drive failed and all files are within to folders called NTFS.
I need to get this booting up again and I've tried creating two new partitions on a new drive and copying all the contents of both NTFS folders to both partitions but I'm not struggling to get the drive to boot from the C: partition.

Any ideas would be most grateful..

Hi,

We have Ahsay Offsite Backup Server v6 installed on our Windows 2003 server and use this to backup data for our users.

We are no longer backing up data for some of our users and wish to remove their licenses from our Ahsay backup.

What is the best way to disconnect a user and remove their user license from our Ahsay backup?

Thanks,
Robbie

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

Why Exchange 2003 Emails keep stacking in Local Delivery Queue
0
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,

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.

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.
