hi,
just a general question
few days before I got ec council storm device (rasbian Pi) to do my ech course
does anyone own this device ?  
1- I can’t find any power button to turn it on.
2- the device came with a USB cable. but if I plug to my laptop it turns on- but doesn’t charge at all. cannot use my iPhone charging adapter as well.   does it have a separate charging adapter ??
and if it’s charged, how do I turn it on without power button ?

I need to copy files from a local Windows 2003 fileserver to a Windows 2019 in Azure. However SMB 1.0 is not installed on the 2019 server and cannot be installed. I've tried robocopy and richcopy but it's not possible to connect or map drives between the servers because of the SMB issue. I'd like the backup to run as a scheduled task daily, but how can I copy the files?

Thanks,
Ronnie

Hi, I have a very old server HP Proliant ML330 G3 with an Adaptec SCSI Ultra3 and two disks.
This is not a RAID1 system: there is OS (Windows 2003 SBS) in disk1 and data folders on disk2.
disk1 is dead.
There are no backups (file system level or systemstate).
Since this server was also a domain controller, I need to reinstall from scratch
If I install from scratch Windows Server 2003 and re-create  a domain with exactly same name of previous one, same users (possilby with same password) could be works fine with workstation ?

Can I use such controller to create a true RAID 1 volume, instead of two separate disks?
Thank you

I have only one DC. That DC is running 2008 R2. The domain and forest functional levels are both set at Windows 2003.

I am building a new DC to retire the old. That new DC will be running Server 2019.

Do I have to first raise the domain and forest functional levels to 2008 R2 on the current DC before I add the 2019 server to the domain? Do I then promote the 2019 server to a DC after first raising the levels to 2008 R2?


Thank you

Hi,
we have a very old domain controller (bare metal) with Windows 2003 server, and we want to add a new ADD (with a more recent OS of course) and remove the old one.
Which Windows OS are eligible to do this? Can I add directly a Windows 2012 server domain controller?
At this moment I don't remember domain level (I mean: Windows 2000 or 2003).
Thank you

Hi there:

I'm in the middle of P2V migration of a Windows 2003 Standard Edition Server using VMware Converter 6.1 (after having tried several versions from 4.3 onwards with no aveil) and the conversion proccess always fails at 1% presenting the following error.



and when a I dig as little bit into the source of the problem I found this.



I have done all the checks suggested on the internet, but none of them are working.

Here a summary of what I've checked:

On CMD, by launching
- vssadmin list providers I have verified there is only one provider: Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider 1.0
- With vssadmin list writers I have verified that none of the writers are faulted with errors. So we are cool here too.
- vss add shadowstorage fails like not recognizing the command, but it's triple checked and addressed with MB, GB, % and several different amounts.
- All 3 hdds are NTFS
- System unit (c:\) is quite small: 10gb hard disc, but I have made some room...now it has like 3gb of free space. Not sure if this is enough or perhaps it is the root of the problem.

I have tried to make the conversion both locally and remotely, but the error is always the same at same point.

I'm seriously considering creating a VM from scratch and dumping a backup from the original one into it, but if you guys could spare me that, I would thank you for this like forever...

Thanks and Regards.

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Hi Experts,
I have a HP ML370 G4 (Yes I know she's old) that is (was) running SBS 2003 R2 Server that has a 'no-operating system' error on start up. I would dump the server but unfortunately, it is running a custom database that is very important to us and that I need urgently to get back up and running. The system was running reliably and Barr a couple of hard drive swaps over the years she has always rebuilt herself and been faithful. I do have it connected to a WAN as we have XAMP Apache running on it in conjunction with a customised mysql database that acts as a web server for informational access to our organisation internally. All was well until one morning I walked into our server room and on the console of this server read 'no-operating system' and the obvious loop of rebooting itself. I have boot into the HP smart start 7.7ver CD and all is well with the hardware, disk array controller, batteries, drives and the actual raid array and logical drives all intact but it does report that there is no operating system! I don't know what has happened but I do have a suspicion that because the server was on the WAN that I may have been hacked or the obvious that windows server 2003 has crapped itself. I do have a backup although it's not up to date and as a last resort will use that to get it back up. But I'm hoping to get the system up again as there was some critical data that I needed that was inputed into the mysql database just after the last backup.
Please help as I …

Hello,

I have an external trust relationship between Domain A and  Domain B and I have an foret trust relationship between Domain A and  Domain C:

- Domain A, functional level domain / forest 2003
- Domain B, functional level domain / forest 2003
- Domain C, functional level domain / forest 2003

These areas are unique in their respective forests.

Domain A will not evolve.
Domain B should be upgraded to AD 2008 [R2].
Domain C should be upgraded to AD 2016.

 Will the trust relationship always be compatible???

Thank you in advance!

Windows server 2003 DC - wont sync time from PDC. I  always have 10 min difference.
One DC is OK and sync from another DC - which sync from PDC.
Second DC with 10 min difference sync from the same DC as the first one..
When I try to resync - I get "Sending resync command to local computer, The command completed successfully" - but the time wont update...
Even when trying to sync from "time.google.com" or other on the web - I always get "The command completed successfully" but time wont update..

What should I check ?

I'm going to be converting a set of interconnected Workgroups/Subnets into a Domain/Site/Subnet arrangement.
As this evolves (for a number of good reasons), there will be a Domain sites/subnets and there will be Workgroup sites/subnets.

While in this interim state, in at least one case, there will be Workgroup file folder shares that need to be accessed by a set of Domain Users.

What's the best way to do this?
For example, I can set up a Local Group on the workstation and give share access to the group.  But how does this help the Domain Users?  That's what I'm missing here.....

We have recently migrated a AD running on Server 2003 to Server 2016- I have confirmed multiple times that FSMO roles are all running on newly created 2016 server however prior to running DCPROMO on old server to uninstall I stopped as the error stated it could not see any other domain controllers  on the network?  Also in troubleshooting I am seeing that my NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares are not on the newly created 2016 server?  

Any help is greatly appreciated! We really want to demote the 2003 server to get off network- But cannot until this is resolved.

Thank you!

Hi,

I have an old Windows Server 2003 (don't ask) and I cannot sync the clipboard for some reason.

I cannot copy and paste, although clipboard is ticked as an option in the settings for RDP before I connect.

Is there any other setting I could be missing to get the clipboard working again from my pc to the server and back again?

Hi,
I created Linked server from Windows Server 2008 R2 to  windows server 2003 Standard Edition SP2
Which tests successfully.
I run a  SELECT statement against a table in a SQL Server 2000 (yes, you heard right, 2000) database on the linked server and get the following error
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink" returned message "Unspecified error".
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink" returned message "The stored procedure required to complete this operation could not be found on the server. Please contact your system administrator.".
Msg 7311, Level 16, State 2, Line 40
Cannot obtain the schema rowset "DBSCHEMA_TABLES_INFO" for OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "testlink". The provider supports the interface, but returns a failure code when it is used.

Any guidance appreciated.
Thanks

3- I need to stop DHCP on router and then activate on DC ? what will happen if both are active at the same time ?
