Preferred Solution: installing software on my server for LAN use

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm fairly computer literate with most things but when it comes to ports, and routers, and firewalls i'm pretty much a noob.

My friends and I have been using Ventrilo for a few weeks with me running the server from my computer. A few days ago i had to put norton antivirus on my computer to get ride of a virus. Ever since then i can't connect to my Ventrilo server and neither can anyone else. I uninstalled it and everything but it must have changed one of my windows network settings. The windows firewall isn't up but something is blocking stuff. Anyone have any idea how to make stuff like that work again? Thanks.

I have an HP 5500 series printer and ever since I installed Adobe Professional 7.0 the software keeps installing itself over and over and I can't get it to stop. I have tried uninstalling Adobe and reinstalling and it does the same thing. Anyone ever heard of this? Any advice is greatly appreciated, and I'm a newbie here so I hope I have posted correctly. Thanks!!!

A:HP Printer software keeps re-installing by itself after installing Adobe Prof. 7.0

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab).

Look for entries that start with hpz, similar to what you see here.

Uncheck those entries, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

See if that helps.

A:Software needs for NT 4 Server

I suspect you're going to have serious problems finding new software that is fully supported for Windows NT 4.0.

I don't know of any application that can scan any operating system to determine any type of problem and fix it regardless of corrupt files or registries. It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing. Even harder to find utilities that work with an operating system even the maker of which doesn't support it.

I am having a dedicated server and need to know what firewall should I use for securing the server. I mean to say that shall i use a software firewall or a hardware firewall? Which is more effective?

A:What software is better for a web server?

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

A:Web Server Software

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite? It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

There is a specific software that i would like to install to the Server ans to let it run on all the computers on the network. So,instead of installing it on each computer (time consuming) i need a way to install it on the server and let it run on each other computer.

A:Installing program to server

Copy software to a folder on the server
Share the folder over the network
Map the folder as a drive on the workstations
Run the software on the workstations.

This is pretty basic networking.

The software has to be set up so that it can be shared in that way. In most cases you will probably have to install the software on the hard drive and share just the data files over the network. The application has to have that capability.

My OS is Windows 98 SE.
Personal Web Server can be installed from the CD on this path
Here is where the problem starts because a menu with several installation options is opened.
You must install Microsoft Transaction Server in order to have several other components dependent on it, including ASP.
Now, this installation keeps prompting me for the path to a server which of course is not installed on my system yet.
If it doesn't find the path it will give all sorts of installation errors.
I am aggravated because now I get error messages at start up and the whole system is unstable.

A:installing xp/linux via server..


Sitting at a single machine?? Not likely. The concept is to have a server with the base build you wish to deploy. A PXE Server (pronounced 'pixie') is what you ideally wish to use.

Each machine you wish to build will be pointed to the server. On boot, the machine connects to the server and installs the image.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... that PS at the end tells the whole story. If this is the case, then it is entirely possible that this is what is causing the problem. If you asked, I think you may have a suspicion that it is true.

You need to check each of your NT servers, to see what their status is.

Also, check your WINS database (might be a good idea to rebuild it), and check to see that you do not have any phantom servers in your DNS table (if you are running a DNS server).

Hi all...
Hope anyone of you can really help.

I have installed SQL SERVER 2000 personal edition on windows server 2000 (the domain). Have then installed SQL SERVER 2000 personal edition on the clients systems all a part of the domain.

I am working on .net 2003 in the client, i can access all the .net files but when it comes to the database during execution it gives the error "SQL server cannot be found or access denied".

What i think is that the group polices that have been applied knowingly or unknowinlgy is not allowing the client systems to acces the server.

Please let me know what i should do to help solve the problem.

I am embarking on a project that will allow me to install the OS and other various updates to roughly 80 systems. When I worked with Solaris, I set up a Jumpstart server ....and I'm wondering what the best way would be to go about doing this for the Windows boxes...any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Experts, I want to install HP NNMi 10.x and HP NA 10.x on same server (windows). so i have installed NNMi succesfully with default ports, post NNMI have installed NA on the same server.  As HP NA doesn't ask to modify the ports while installation, The NNMi by default ports gets conflict with HP NA and hence jboss  service of NNMi is not starting . Need your help / suggestion in modifying the HP NA ports (exact path /steps). Thanks in advance Regards,Chetan Keni

I'm installing a second exchange server and just wanted to get something clear. When I add second exchange server to the same site it is suppose to replicate with the first exchange server correct? And how extensive is the replication? Can I bring down the old server for upgrades and still not lose exchange functions? I guess what I asking is the replication good enough to remove the exchange services from the old box and just to run the exchange on the newer box. Trying to stay away from backups if possible because the old box runs other services and needs to remain on the network. Thanks in advance for any help.

A:{Advice Given} - Installing second Exchange 5.5 server


Well, if you want to REMOVE the first Exchange server, then you will have to first move all the mailboxes from the one server to the other, which is not part of the normal replication. What Replication does, is replicate the Directory information, and the public folders (if it has been set to replicate public folders).

There is a way of moving the mailboxes in Exchange, but I am not sure that you can automate the moving of ALL the mailboxes.

I have been running Windows 2000 Server for some time and have hand no difficulties with QT or iTunes. I recently had to (because of a motherboard failure) replace my system and chose a dual Opteron server using an ASUS server board, and decided to install the 64-bit version on Windows 2003 Server.

So far, most programs haven't had any serious installation problems and have run fine. But QuickTime and iTunes takes note of the 64-bit OS and refuses to install.

Does anyone know any way to fool the installer into doing the installation? I have a feeling it will run just fine, IF I could get it to install. Is it possible to modify the package so that it doesn't check for OS compatibility? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. This isn't a critical piece of software, but it is a convenient one.

my server has 4 SCSI harddrives itself and each of is labeled(partitioned) as C,D,E,F.. (OS is running on C)I wanted to add 5th SCSI harddrive, apparently win2000 did not recognize it,however when I hit F6 on the booting, I am able to see it.It seems OS is not seeing, but bios is there anyway to do install new harddrive?

A:installing new harddrive in win2000 server

Someone didn't know about drive fault tolerance when building this server. Oh well.Did you configure the new drive to NOT do termination? This is assuming you are using an active terminator on the end of the scsi cable. If you are using the 4th drive for termination you need to set it to none and this 5th drive to do termination.Much better to use an active terminator at the end of the cable.You have to initialize the drive in the scsi bios once you get termination solved.Then you go into disk management to see the drive, partition, format it and assign it a drive letter.

A:Software Raid5 in Server 2003

If the OS is not part of the array and you have installed applications on the array you will have to restore those applications as well. I am not even sure you can make the OS part of an RAID 5 array. Your best bet would be to restore the OS volume from a full backup...the OS won't know the difference since the array looks like one big drive to it.

I know MS makes a free one but I can't get it to install and I frankly have a bias against MS when it comes to mission critical programs. I've just been let down too many times by programs with too many entanglements into the OS. MS seems to feel that because they know the OS backwards and forwards that they should then entangle any app into the OS's deep settings.

Anyway, I'm looking for pretty much anything. It can cost money as I'm happy to play with a demo for awhile.

As far as the "server" specs go, since you are apparently going to buy a Pre-Manufactured unit, eg, Dell, and obviously you don't want to limit your pleasure by anything as trivial as MONEY....Just buy the biggest most badass unit they offer.

And if it is specified as Multi-media, it "should" lean in the direction you want. As for the HD capacity...since you are talking about ARCHIVING all of you CD's and DVD's to Hard Disk, 250GB should be sufficient...for your FIRST hard drive !!! Go on from there.

I am trying to do a full install of Windows Standard Server 2003 on a Intel-based server.
The server has a Promise Fast Track 100 Raid controller. This system previously had Windows 2000 Advanced Server on it with no issues. When i try to install Server 2003, I press F6 and load the proper drivers for the controller but then Setup comes up and says that it cannot find a hard disk. Yet, when I restart the system, it boots into Windows 2000 with no problem. I can delete and rebuild the RAID array so I know the hard disks are being recognized. I used WipeDisk to completely erase the drives.

I then tried to reinstall Windows 2000 again and am having the same issue that setup cannot find the hard disk. Any ideas why this may be occurring?

I have a question about Mysql server 2008 R2

What is my server name if I select to install with "Named Instance" not "Default Instance"

with Mixed mode password

I don't know this because I used to install with Named Instance : neneka and mixed mode password 12345

but I can't login because I don't know what my server name is

user id should be : neneka right ? and maybe password is 12345

A:Question about installing Mysql server 2008 R2

When using named instances, the server name is of the form [ComputerName]\[InstanceName]
When using the default instance, it's only [ComputerName]

You can alternatively replace the computer name with the IP or "localhost" if it's on the very same box. And on the login dialog, if you open the server name combobox, the option "browse for more" can be used to help you locate the servers in the network too.
Also verify if the server service is running. For named instances to connect over a network, you also need the SQL Browser service running (not needed for the default instance).

BTW, you should rename the post to SQL Server, as it has nothing to do with MySql.

"The SQL Server System Configuration Checker cannot be executed due to WMI configuration on the machine JUPITER Error:2147942405 (0x80070005)."

To try to fix this I went to the WMI Control under computer management and checked the properties. The following error message came back:

"Failed to initialize all required WMI classes.

Win32_Processor: Win32: Access is denied.
Win32_WMISetting: Successful
Security Information: Successful
Win32_OperatingSystem: Win32: Access is denied."

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium, I upgraded from Windows XP.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
