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).

I am running WSUS version 3.2.7600.226 on a Windows 2003 SP2 server. Recently, I have been getting an error everytime I try to generate a status report for any computer. The error is "an error occurred while generating the report. Try running the report again or contact your network admin for help" Also, Windows 10 machines are having a hard time getting updates from the same server. This server is pretty old and it only has 1GB RAM, running Pentium 4 2,6GHz processor. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Tharaka

I have a virtual Windows 2003 server. If you look at in in VMware the drives are 400GB and 409GB respectively, but my C drive was configured with only 12GB. I see a D drive with 124.54GB and 263.37GB of Unallocated space. The C drive continues to hit 95% and I have to do a disk clean up regularly. It would be so nice if I could just grab 10 or 20 of the unallocated GBs and expand the C drive. I have not extended a drive on Windows 2003 in years though and want to be very careful. Is it even possible if it is the same drive as the OS? I recall using a DISKPART command years ago in a situation similar to this. Is that one of my options. I attached a screenshot of the current drive configuration

Hello,

I'm planning to demote windows 2003 DC this weekend and after researching the process I believe following needs to be done and want to make sure my understanding is correct.
Current Environment:
DC2003 running Windows 2003 (AD, DNS, DHCP, File Server)
DC1 running Windows 2008
DC2 running Windows 2008

Ran DCDIAG report attached.
DC1 has all FSMO roles.
All three domain controllers are global catalog servers.
Domain Functional level: 2003 (screenshot attached)

Steps to demote:
Remove DC2003 as a global catalog server. (maybe reboot afterward)
Change DC2003 DNS to point to DC1.
Run DCPROMO and keep this as DC2003 as the member server.
After successful removal change domain functional level to 2008

Should this change affect DHCP? Can I move DHCP role at the later time?
Am I missing anything?

Can someone please review this and let me if steps are correct?

Thank you,

Disclaimer:  Completely new to IIS and asp.net.  I was assigned the task of copying a website that resides in an Windows server 2003 running on IIS 6.0 and making run on a Windows 2012 R2 server with IIS 8.5.  I have read you can deploy websites using IEMT or Web deploy.  My fear using these tools is that if I use them the website on the source server will stop working.  What we want is to test if the site can run in IIS 8.5.  Can anyone help me and tell me more less how to do this?  A couple of thing more.  The website was created using ASP 1.1.4xxxx and the SQL server is sitting in another computer.  Can I make this happen or do I need to recreate the website.

We have a Oarcle 9i Database in a legacy system and want to convert tables to CSV with data.  For some reason they have Oracle 9i and on Windows 2003 Server.  This is a legacy application that was setup by an old administrator and I need to access to recover the data to move.

This is a blackbox system - cannot connect to network and vendor lock the DB and changed all Oracle system passwords.  

So with help from EE guys we figured out that the below will allow as sysdba.

1.  the sqlnet.ora parameter SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NTS)
2.   sqlplus "/ as sysdba"


Well once in that I can only export a backup and other commands on the command line.  I have a developer who is going to take this small DB and convert to MySQL.  What command would allow to convert/export on the Oracle 9I command line as sysdba to a CSV with tables names and rows?  

He wants a CSV so he can import into MySQL.  If there is another way to accomplish this on the server and I don't know I'm willing to try anything.  Maybe a third party tools?  

Thank you in advance!  Will be online and able to respond and test commands.

Okay, so here we go;
I just finished building a new computer. I installed Server 2016 Datacenter on it. Installed HyperV with Windows 10 Educational edition on that. Eventaully want to have all files on server, have VM and two laptops running as roaming log-in, with all file storage aimed at server. Need to be able to access over internet while in school or on road.
1. First time doing this
2. MoBo is BIOS instead of UEFI
3. HyperV won't let me build as Generation 2, which is needed to have more than 2TB of storage
4. Directing VM build and laptops to see and use files on server

I know about all these things, but school is more of a vocabulary test, rather than an actual building block of what to DO. I know what I want to do, and I know the items needed, but how to put it all together is proving a chore. Every time I have a question, I have hours of Googling to find the right answer out of many.

Anyone up for a challenge of helping a noob start from the beginning of the project?

I have two WS2003 servers virtualised with VMWare running as redundant AD masters for 2 other W2003 servers and 2 WS2008 servers and one WS2012 server.  Aside from file and print, accounting and web apps also serviced plus backup partitions distributed across RAID5 arrays on each machine.

There are regular AD errors but the network is operational although servers now need to be upgraded so new hardware and moreso new Windows Server software available. I suspect local resellers will not go below 2012.

My question is how to go about the process of evaluating the current system, whether rebuilding the AD is necessary (some older PC's might not reconnect well but this is not the deciding factor), and if so under which version to standardise, noting that 2016 has more virtualisation features but may be more problematic for older version sof windows clients to connect to ?

Any pointers, things to watch out for, greatly appreciated...

I want to make a 2012 member server a domain controller.  

Current set up is two Server 2003 domain controllers.  One of them is having issues so I want to demote it and promote a 2012 member server to a domain controller.  Can this be done if the FSMO domain controller is running Server 2003?  

Thanks,

Dear Friends!
 
I have a Windows Server 2003 acting as a Domain Controller within my LAN. There is no other assigned role to that machine. Two days ago I saw it running out of space (HDD=67GB) because of WSUS folder and specifically SUSDB.mdf whichc is almost 57GB! What should I do in order to save my space! Is there any simple way to do it?

We have an old ERP solution that only runs on a 32-bit server. Currently it is running on an old local Windows Server 2003 R2 with Service Pack 2.

I believe Windows Server 2008 was the last "server" product that Microsoft released that was available as 32-bit. As a test, I built a new server VM running 2008 but my ERP solution didn't like it at all. So I deleted the VM. (It was still 32-bit so other than the fact that 2003 is EOL, there was really no benefit anyway)

I'm not really interested in upgrading the server that the ERP solution is running on because (1) 32-bit is limited to 4 gb ram and (2) as I mentioned, the 2008 instance was a bust.

What I AM interested in doing, is moving this VM from my local server to a VPS or a cloud hosted solution.

Web hosting companies like A2 Hosting or Rackspace, etc ... they DO offer VPS hosting but they come pre-loaded with Server 2012, which means it's 64-bit, which means my ERP solution won't run on it. And since these are not the types of hosting plans where I can BYOOS (bring your own OS), it's not a solution for me.

Is there a way for me to take my VM (prebuilt, running Windows Server 2003 and my ERP already installed) and just "upload" it somewhere?

I don't know much about Azure but from my limited research, it appears you CAN spin up your own Azure server instance and during the deployment, choose your own OS.  The problem is, since Win Server 2003 is EOL, it's not one of the OS options that you get in the …

What is the best way to approach it, i am thinking

BACKUP old server 2k3 machine
Build new 2012 machine
Demote 2k3 machine as PDC
Promote 2012 as PDC
restore data from 2k3 machine to 2012

How do i restore all the active directory settings?

working on on win2k8r2 server and having trouble with NTFS permissions.  User1 has the following permissions to a folder called 'Statements'.  I want this user to only have Editing and Create access/No Delete capabilities.

Capture.PNG
when User1 creates a .txt file or a .bmp file everything works as it should.  the user can edit, save but can't delete.

However, when they create a Office file like in Word or Excel they cannot edit it.  When they try to save they get the error message: 'Access denied. Contact your administrator.'   Why does this work in a .txt file but not in our Office programs?
