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 have a windows 2003 server that we just had an issue where the server was not able to be reached remotely. We could ping the server no problem. the settings for the remote were set to allow in all menus. The work around we found was to turn remote permission and reboot the computer and turn the remote permissions on. Wondering how this would fix the remote issue. Is this a known issue?

Hi,
I just did file server migration from 2003 to 2016 using the following guide

https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/75097-replace-an-old-file-server-with-a-new-file-server-using-the-same-ip-same-name-same-shares

All is working well as i am able to access the shares from computer with appropriate permission, however some of the shares had an alias for example \\servername\files\123 was called \\filestore\files\123. I am not able to accesss those shares,whenever i click on it i get a prompt that says you were not connected because duplicate name exist on the network.

I have renamed the old server, re IP'd it and even turned it off. Nothing in DNS records pointing to the old server. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I am looking for a way to pull information on all my shares on my domain/network. I am preparing to plan out a backup strategy for my environment. I understand I can use server manager, net share, etc.., however looking for another tool I can use and allows me to export data to an excel spreadsheet.

Thanks,

Services appear to by running, however when I run this command I get the following

net start "terminal services"
"
The Terminal Services service is starting.
The Terminal Services service could not be started.

A system error has occurred.

System error 1314 has occurred.

A required privilege is not held by the client.

I am logged into the server (2003) as the network administrator

Hi

 I have a shared drive on a windows 2012 server called " Shared"
 Within this drive , there is a folder called SCIENCE and within this folder there are sub folders.
 Initially I copied this folder from another server through Robocopy. Now I would like to delete this SCIENCE folder.

 When I delete I get and error that says Item Not found
 Could not find this item
 This is no longer located in E:\Shared. Verify the items location and try again.

 Please let me know how to delete this SCIENCE Folder. Is there a way of deleting this through Robocopy
 If so please post me the exact syntax and tutorials or if there is any other way.
 Thanks

Hi

Currently the student’s home directories are located on our Windows 2003 server E drive On the Win2003 Server the Local Path to the share is: E:\StuDocu
Remote path from my workstation to the Win2003 share is: \\Win2003\StuDocu
Within the shared folder “StuDocu” there are separate folders for Yr7, Yr8... and within each of these folders there are 100 of student’s home directories.

\\Win2003\StuDocu\Yr7\User1,User2,User3........., User200
\\Win2003\StuDocu\Yr8\User201,User203,User204.........,User400..


I have built Windows 2012 server and would like to migrate all the students’ folders from our old Windows 2003 server to our new Windows 2012 server.

On the Windows 2012 server I have created a separate Drive “E” and have created a shared folder called StuDoc on this drive.

Now I would like to Copy the files from Win2003 to Win2012 server and also would like to copy the permissions and the directory time stamps

\\Win2003\StuDocu\Yr7  to \\Win2012\StuDocu\

I want to copy the complete Yr7 folder first and Yr8 and so on ...

Please let me know as how to achieve this and post me the syntax to do this task from Robocopy.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have created a GPO to enable a service called WIred AutoConfig and after gpupdate /force and a reboot, I do see that the GPO hit two test VMs (windows 7 and 10) however a few systems within my test OU all 10 systems do not get GPO. After running GPResults Scope I do see that the GPO is being applied. Is there any other tool I can use to further troubleshoot this issue? Ideas?

Thanks,

Can get services to start due to dependencies - workstation. Browser works, just no network resources or RPC.  Workstation service is stopped.  Netlogon service is stopped - all throw relative errors when clicking on start.

Workstation error: Could not start the workstation service on Local computer.  ERROR:1075 The dependency services does not exist or has been marked for deletion. Have exhausted reg edits suggestions - no results - about to resort to 'last known good.'

Thanks in advance

I created an access data base on my desktop. I split the data base and saved the backend in a folder on a shared server. Then I saved a copy of the front end from my desktop to another folder on the shared server. I can get into the front end and backend database on the server, but most of my coworkers cannot. Some are getting an error that the path is not valid and some are getting an error file cannot be found. There are a few that have no problem at all.  Any suggestions as to why some can get in and other can't?

Hi Folks

I have an old Windows 2003 SBS server which I'm running for a client. It's been absolutely fine for a good few years but suddenly this morning it shut down. Looking in the event log I see there's an error under "System" which says there are multiple domain controllers running on the network and that the server will shut down automatically unless one or more of them are removed....

Stumped. All other Windows servers running on the network are set to Workgroup not domain. This is the only domain controller. How do I resolve this issue? Any help appreciated.

Cheers
Chris

Hi All, this is for an old Windows 2003 server. I get an error 1075 when trying to start the workstation service. I tried the reg fixes to no avail, I think I'm missing some files in Windows\system32 but I don't know what they are. Is there a way to do a restore or something? I really need some help.

Thanks.

The user has a HP server running Microsoft Server 2003 that they only use for internal file sharing and running FileMaker Server 6.
They occasionally use Firefox to go to a website.  Office 2007 is on it, but Outlook isn't configured as email.
All the Windows updates that can be found have been installed.

MalwareBytes 2 is installed, along with the stand-alone MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit for Business.  MalwareBytes 3 didn't upgrade properly.

This is a 3-computer office (with the server)

Anything else that I can do?

Thanks

Is there a kb4013389 for Windows server 2003 ?

Dear All,

I have a trouble with one of my legacy systems, it can run on Windows 2003 only. My domain is 2003 as well. In the scope of my risk mitigation, I plan to upgrade my domain system. I have a hard time with my domain environment since my 2003 ERP server is a DC as well, as two additional DC. Fortunately, all servers are virtual (VMWare)

My plan:

1. Unpromote 2003 ERP server and make it a member server.
2. Upgrade domain from 2003 to 2016. Here is my major problem. I want to be 100% sure Windows 2003 Standard SP2 can run in a 2016 domain environment as a member server. I'd like to mention that the server runs SQL Server 2005 as well

Detailed answers will be highly appreciated
