hi,

Could anyone explain the difference between domain (controller)switches and full fabric switches? (or direct me to a page/site which would do the job)

Preferred Solution: domain switches vs full fabric switches

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Depends on what context you're talking about. Your statement is a bit "Apples and Gorillas" The two really aren't related to each other.

I have joined a computer (PC1) to a domain control server (2008), and user able to login using their domain user account - although recently I have found out that even though the computer (PC1) do not connect to a server, user still able to access using their domain account.
Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

Thank in advance
 

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.




restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

Hello there, this is my first post here and I do appreciate if someone can help me in this scenario.

I have a DC running Windows server 2008 Standard in the HQ, I have a remote location connected to it through a VPN, some times the connection drops, and this prevent the remote location computers to log in, stops sharing, because there is no authentication from the DC anymore, so users must wait until the connection come alive again, I have a server in the remote location running windows server 2003, with some applications installed on.

what I want to do is to promote this 2003 server to be additional domain to help when the connection to the DC down.

my question is:
is it possible to promote windows server 2003 to be additional domain in server 2008 environment ? and if it is possible - how to do so?

thanks ...

Gents, built my own machine last year and installed a 60GB SSD strictly for Win 7 only (have two other HD's installed for storage and programmes)

Lately im getting alerts to say my SSD is now full and after doing what I could through the tools on Win 7 I was only able to free up 5 GB's What the hell is on here? Win updates? Everything I do is directed to my HD on the E: drive

Alternative is to buy another - can you transfer the root HD to another HD? really didnt plan for this, I know 60GB isnt that large but it was only ever to use as a boot drive.

Suggestions anyone?

A:Monitor switches off mid-game??

Hmmm, the first thing I think of in these situations is an overheating problem (BTW I assume that you mean your computer stops displaying picture, rather than your actual monitor turning off). Have you checked your temps whilst at full load? If not, get FurMark to test your GPU and Prime95 to test your CPU. If your computer crashes during these tests then that is also a problem.

The fact that this is getting progressively worse leads me to think that your GPU may be dying.

I have a HP Laserjet 4000n PCL6 that is connected to a windows XP in a virtual setting on the domain network. I believe it has a static IP address (because it doesn't have the typical 192.168.100...) number. When I try to add the printer to the local environment in windows 7, I go to the control panel, add a printer, I choose network the printer or a printer attached to another computer, it shows the printer name, and then I choose connect to this printer, but it says I'm missing the .inf file. Anyone know how I can get this working on the windows 7 side?
 

A:Networking a printer on a domain

.inf file contains the driver information. In the settings on the XP, you can go into printer sharing settings. Maybe you can enable 'hold additional driver files for download' or something. I don't know, I do this via Server 2008 R2 (no idea why you aren't either).

So we have a server at one of the places I work that is a domain controller and DNS server website domain server controller pointing DNS to of instead address as well as an smtp server The domain is named companyname com The website is you guessed it companyname com Now why they set this up like this I don t know but because they have every now DNS server pointing to domain controller instead of website address and then the DNS server decides to point companyname com to the domain controller and ignore the fact that I have a www Host A record pointing to the web server s external IP address and a record saying DNS server pointing to domain controller instead of website address that DNS server pointing to domain controller instead of website address companyname com should also point to the web server s address The problem seems to stem from that when the server reboots for updates it of course forces the DNS server records to update and it puts an entry in there that contradicts my static records with the domain controller s local address in for companyname com Can I force it NOT to put a certain entry in there or rather not update a certain entry that it has in there Or can I force it to treat my static records as primary I m fairly new to this as I ve not dealt with this issue before and I m out of ideas nbsp

A:DNS server pointing to domain controller instead of website address

Hmm; for the External DNS accessible to the web

create a CNAME for www.company.name
create another for dns.company.name.
each pointing to unique IP addresses
this dns ONLY supports publicly available services; NOTHING internal

the Domain Controller should have a SEPARATE DNS, internal to the LAN, not accessible to the Web.
Internal users configured to -> internal DNS which performs recursive lookup to your ISP's DNS.

Hey everyone, recently I purchased another 8Gb of Kingston HyperX RAM and installed it into my computer which already had 4Gb. However, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit says 12Gb installed (6Gb usable). I think it is an issue with my motherboard but I'm not too proficient with this so I'd like to seek some advice and whether this can be overcome. My system specs are as follows:

Intel i7 870 @ 2.93 GHz
Asus P7P55D-E
Asus ATI 6870
Kingston HyperX CL7 4Gb Kit (Originally purchased)
Kingston HyperX CL9 8Gb Kit (Purchased today, the shop assistant told me that they no longer bring in the CL7 due to it being too costly. They told me my CL7 would function as a CL9 once I put my new kit in)

As mentioned before, I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit version.

Thank you very much for your help!

A:Computer does not have full power

What are the components and power supply? Over time PSU's lose some ability to output what they did new. They can also just die. Unplugging DVD drives isn't going to give you very much additional power because they only use a couple watts on startup.

A possibly relevant pair of messages I get from pinging via dnsstuff.com are
- The destination appears to block unwanted UDP packets.
- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

Hello guys this is my first post in this forum.

I work in IT support, and I came across a problem with someone I work with.

Guy called Tony, had a USB stick in one of his front USB ports on his computer, he accidently kicked it and broke some of the USB off in the port.

He has 2 ports on the front, and now when he plugs something into the one that isnt broken, a cooling fan at the top of the computer goes crazy, and it cant be stopped until the computer is shut down, and the USB doesnt register on the computer.

Is this a problem with wires? Or is it just a problem where the ports at the front need replaing all together?

Thanks!

Hard to say at this state.

By "a piece broken off", do you mean Mr. Tony broke the flashstick so that the USB-male is still plugged in, but the drive itself has been detached? Have you removed the piece which is still inside? (It helps ) - also, which OS is the computer running? This is sort of important, as different OS's works (a little) differently regarding the USB-ports.

Currently, it looks like you simply need to remove that piece stuck inside. Although if that doesn't fix the problem (or if there is no piece stuck inside), then probably a connection or two inside the port broke when the flashstick was kicked - resulting in a need for changing the entire port .

The Acer C: drive is now full and the Data D: drive is empty, but it is not recognizing it automatically. This computer is my brother's, he bought it new and has it at my house. It came formatted with no disc's and I'm not sure where his books for it are. Can anyone tell me how to activate the second hard drive so I can use itunes and download video, etc.

It would be very much appreciated. My brother uses the computer here but it has been here for at least 3 years maybe and the book is misplaced. He mostly uses it for youtube, facebook, and stuff like that and is less computer educated than I am at tech stuff, which isn't saying much.

Thanks in advance for any help.
 

A:Aspire AST690-UP925A 250GB SATA hard disk first drive full and won't go to 2nd

Boot into Bios, usually by hitting F8 as soon as the POST screen appears and see if the hard drives are both recognised. If the spare drive does not show in the Bios it either has a fault or it is not correctly connected.

What OS is on the PC.

A:Can external hard drive be used for full internal hard drive?

If you want to take out the drive from external hard drive case and install it in your desktop/laptop, then usually you can. Usually external hard drives are just ordinary hard drives accompanied by some extra controller to make it able to "talk" via general ports (e.g. USB). However I am not familiar with digital elements 2TB , so I can not confirm it. But I do have WD external drive, which I had positively confirm that its real drive is just ordinary hard drive.

Note that if you decide to do this, I suggest to find experience people to work on extracting the drive. If you do it yourself you will risk to damage it, and you don't want that since usually opening the closure means voiding the warranty.

A:Power switches for my custom wood case?

Switches are made to fit the tower facia panel and when you buy a new case the switches come with it. I did a bit of searching but other than buying in bulk there does not seem to be any available. You may have to visit a good computer store and ask if they can supply you with just a switch. A more intensive search on the internet may well find something.

Hi, I'm experiencing a problem with watching videos (YouTube and the like) in full screen mode. My system is three years old with all specs in my profile. Specifically the problem is that when I start a video from YouTube or wherever for that matter, and I click on the box giving me the option to watch the video in full screen mode, the video box will attempt to go to full screen then will revert back to the initial box size. What can be tried to correct this?

I'm sure the question in the title is very noob, but I just assumed that full HD monitors would connect to the graphics card via a HDMI cable?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Why do monitors that are full HD not have an HDMI port on them?

Not really necessary, DVI carries the same video signal as HDMI ... just no audio. You can use a DVI to HDMI cable for your connection.

What is the difference between the words network, work group and domain?
 

A:What is a "domain"?

From Microsoft:

Workgroups compared with domains

A domain is a group of accounts and network resources that share a common directory database and set of security policies, and might have security relationships with other domains. A workgroup is a more basic grouping, intended only to help users find objects such as printers and shared folders within that group. Domains are the recommended choice for all networks except very small ones with few users.

In a workgroup, users might have to remember multiple passwords, one for each network resource. (In addition, different users can use different passwords for each resource.) In a domain, passwords and permissions are simpler to keep track of, because a domain has a single, centralized database of user accounts, permissions, and other network details. The information in this database is replicated automatically among domain controllers. You determine which servers are domain controllers and which are simply members of the domain. You can determine these roles not only during Setup but afterward.

Domains, and the Active Directory directory system of which they are a part, provide many options for making resources easily available to users while maintaining good monitoring and security. For more information, see Active Directory.

We just setup a wireless network using a home wireless router. However no one can login to there domain account, probably because you need to login to Windows and enter the password to connect to the wireless network. What's the best way to resolve this problem?
 

A:How to login to a domain through wireless Internet?

That question has multiple issues.

1) at home, we seldomly use a DOMAIN; we use workgroups. An XP/Home system can only use the workgroup. Unless you have a Windows Server 2000,2003, or 2008 - -
you can only use workgroups.

2) the computer WiFi connects to your WiFi router, not a domain NOR a workgroup.
Connecting to the router should be possible using the Wireless Network Setup tool in the Controls. (it needs the service Wireless Zero Configuration to be running).

A:Home domain

Home systems normally use WORKGROUPS, and not a Domain - - a real Domain Controller(DC) requires a Windows Server {2000, 2003, 2008}, another system to run it and lots of $$$$

Most of us never need a DC - - why do you think you need a Domain?

When I first got the drive I connected it to my PC and put some files on it. Since then I have also connected it to my Mac and and takes some files from my PC and transferred them to the Mac using the Story Station.

Can anyone tell me why I am getting the error message saying it is full when there is only around 30gb being taken up?

A little help here? Thanks... I have 30+ pc's. Just installed a new Netgear WNDR3300 router. After finally getting it configured correctly, the wireless works great. I put a jumper to one of the 2 Cisco 2950-24 switches and no connection for hard wired systems. I inherited this setup. The WAN is setup to work with the modem from the ISP and is good to go. As I said, I have a cat5 jumper to one switch and it has a jumper to the other switch. Is there a way to reset the swiches? Or should they be? I checked Cisco online and found nothing definitive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

And i don't think its a virus because i do have a scanner/firewall.

I use win xp pro, and I just installed Windows Media Player, but why the player stop playing in full-screen mode? It's ok minutes ago. I know this question is kind of stupid, any one knows how to fix it.
 

A:Why does the Player stop playing in full-screen mode?

It is a feature of Windows Media Player, not a fault
It will automatically pause when manually selecting "Full Screen" (I suspect just to allow you to get ready)
You then need to press "Play" to play it again

Can I also suggest that you try another Media Player > Free VLC Media Player
It does an excellent job at playing most movies (anyway, much more than WMP) And is very easy to use, and I use it

Exactly what do we mean when we hear/use the term "Domain Controller"? What sort of services run Exactly what do we mean when we hear/use the term "Domain Controller"? What sort of services run on the server that is designated as the Domain Controller? Is this the server on which DHCP and DNS and maybe some other services also run? What are the minimum specs for a Domain Controller server for say 30 - 50 users and would the standard version of Windows 2003 be sufficient for this?

Can we have more than 1 servers in an organization but only 1 of those designated as the domain controller? And last question: Can we have MS-Exchange running on the domain controller?

I know I have asked many questions in 1 post but will be grateful for a reply.

Thanks.

The computer I'm working on says it has 13.6 GB of used disk and 309 MG of free. The Vaio case says it has a 120 GB hard disk. I deleted some programs but I haven't been able to delete enough to run defrag or check disk. Is there a program I can run from a flash drive that will help? Or perhaps one to transfer files to the other internal hd or an external one? Also system tools doesn't have backup listed.
 

A:Full disk at 13.6 GB

Here are two programs to remove temp files:
CCleaner (Note this is the "portable" version)
TFC

Also Jdiskreport
Provides a graphical and "drill-down" view of your disk usage. It also supports multiple ways to view your usage (e.g. by folder, by file type, ascending or descending order, top 50 file sizes, etc)

A:Dell Latitude D600 not running a full processor speed

What are you using to test the speeds? It was never a high speed laptop in the first place, but it has always been a darn good and reliable one.

Large hard drive can make a difference if it is 100 GB or larger... using the Dell version of Windows... the system wastes too much time checking empty space.

Be sure you have WXP SP2 installed, but hold back on WXP SP3, as SP3 protects Microsoft, but slows down an already slow laptop.

A user has been using her laptop for several years and uses Outlook for her POP3 email.
When we installed a server and joined her laptop to the domain she was unable to see her email without logging out of the server and logging back into her local account.
How do I let her domain profile be the same as her local profile?

You can't, it's considered as a different user. Just take the settings from Outlook and import them into the other account name.

I have an older but very useful 8-port KVM switch. It only handles PS/2 mouse and keyboard inputs. Many of the newer MB's out there have that "combo" port. My KVM does not seem to like the USB to dual Mouse/KB PS/2 adapters.

Anyone have any luck with a specific adapter strategy for MB's that must have at least the keyboard OR the mouse be USB, and getting some of the older KVM's to like them? I am thinking an individual, rather than dual, PS/2 to USB adapter for the KB or Mouse and then the other one in the single PS/2 port.

I know it's not the adapter, because if I hook a seperate KB and Mouse to it, it's fine. It's just the KVM switch that does not like the arrangement at all.

Thanks for any help.

hey all,
I have a k7s5a mothboard and need to know where the switches are for the front usb ports so if anyone can send me a sheet showing the location of the switches that would be great.
 

A:Front usb switches on k7s5a motherboard

Most do not have any. They work from the chipset drivers when plugged in. Are you having trouble. Are you talking about audio or video?
You can see if they are set up by going to Device Manager in System, and see if there are any yellow or red flags by the exisiting USB ports that are listed as detected.
If not fully setup, wait until everything is setup.

A:Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed

What games are you trying to play on that computer? Hopefully they are not that demanding because the Vostro isn't great for newer games. Also make sure that you are not using it on a soft surface (bed, rug, blanket, etc).

The drivers for your video card should not interfere with your fans since it is all integrated into the same motherboard.

Hi-Newbie here,

Recent history: I downloaded Internet Explorer 8 and immediately had some problems with it. So I had a Microsoft tech help me remove IE8 by using the System Restore. I now am using IE6.

Now, when attempting to use my flash drive the PC thinks it is full even though I have deleted all the files. I looked at the flash drive Properties and indeed it was shown as full.

I then formatted the flash drive and after that the Properties showed it as empty. I once again tried moving one or two small files on to the flash drive and the PC tells me the drive is full again.

The flash drive capacity is 256 mb while the files I attempted to move total only a few kb?s.

Anybody have ideas on what is happening and how to fix it?

Thanks!
 

A:PC thinks the flash drive is full when it isn't

Hi Nossamr, are you by chance using vista or windows 7?, the reason i ask is i wonder if when you plug in your flash drive if it is defaulting to dedicating your flash drive to being used for ready boost.

Hello; I was hoping someone could help me clear things out for me. I would like to add a domain to act as a backup domain controller in case PDC fails. I have read that I would have to add another domain since there is no BDC in win2003. So after I add a domain to an existing forest how does the fail over works? The second domain controller will be at a remote site. Is there a change I have to make in the router to broadcast or simply point to this new DC from DNS?

A:How do I get the display full screen?

You probably need to install your video card or intergrated video drivers. Doing that should correct the issue.

Look in the device manager and see if you have any yellow ?'s or !'s..To access the device manager do the following:

1:From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel.

2: Double-click the System icon, and then click the Device Manager tab.

Alternatively, you can do the following:

1: On the desktop, right-click the My Computer icon, and select Properties.

2: Click the Device Manager tab.

*Edit*

System specs can be quite handy to have:
Model/Make of your computer
Motherboard model and make
CPU make/model
RAM ammount and brand
Graphics card make and model (if you have a card and not an intergrated video controller)
Hard drive(s) make/model/size

I've got about 15 users who need to be migrated from an old domain to a new domain (company acquisition) on their existing laptops. They want to keep all the normal stuff, My Documents, Desktop, Favorites... but they will be changing email servers.

I've been told to use the Windows File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but I can't get it to work effectively, if at all. Is this the correct tool to accomplish the migration, or is there something else I should be doing?

Thanks all,
Dave
 

A:Migrating to new domain (Profile migration)

I don't think so. The Profile Migration tool moves a users documents/settings from
one client system to another client system.

The Email settings are there too, but you're moving too much; you only need to edit the settings.

In a Domain Controller / Exchange Srvr environment, you may need to move the
server-side user data, but I'm not sure that the Migration tool addresses that at all.

A:XP logs on ok to domain but then hangs

Hi

They hang while logging on to the domain or do they hang when logged on and at desktop,

if you log on as a local machine does it still hang.

Are the disks in good condition, do they use the same type of NIC.

I did a google on XP hangs joining domain and got a lot of hits on the query maybe one of them relates to your issue.

Regards

Hi I m trying to network my home with tons of ports However since some of these ports are really hard to wire up and we re not so interested in having double or triple ports all over my question is this If I added a port in a room now which is then connected to a switch which is connected to a router which is then connected to a modem which is finally connected to the internet is it possible to later on connect yet another switch there Will there be any problems connecting to the internet or sharing files or printers etc from this switches home Adding network to new switch with other computers connected with the earlier switch configuration then would be switch-switch-router-modem No before suggesting it wireless networking is out since the port in question is going to be used for a media player and file transfer speed is top priority We re thinking that we might place another computer or two in the future These cables do not exceed m total length shouldn t be anything more than m All Adding switches to home network cables are CAT some Cat e not Cat or Cat e Right now with the switch-router-modem setup computers connected to both the switch can connect with computers connected to the router which has wireless and computers connected via wireless File printer sharing and internet is all without problem As I don t have a second switch yet and may not get one for awhile I would not be able to just connect it up and see if it works which is why I m posting for some help Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Adding switches to home network

Right now, with the switch-router-modem setupClick to expand...

I usually draw it the other way round, but you're on the right track.

You can cable switch-switch-switch until you go dizzy OR you reach the connection
limit of your router (most home routers support a MAX of 10 concurrent connections).
You can also place a switch on EVERY port of the router and then switch-switch-switch again.

The control of your network is the ROUTER; a switch is a non-configurable device
and transparent to everything.

Heck; for a roommate, I even have
modem--routerA--switch--routerB​HOWEVER, systems attached to A can not see/share with those on B which is
what we want.

i just restored my computer with the disks it came with because of many problems, and when i finally got it back up the sound isn't working. the sound control in the taskbar isn't even there, and when i try to locate it it says that there are no active mixers available... and i am very confused as to what to do...

help please?
 

A:Just did a full restore on my comp and sound is not working

You require the Sound/Audio drivers for your model of computer and Windows version. You can search for this yourself at your manufactures support web site.

Or

Please put your System Specs in your Profile

If you have a proprietory computer like Dell; HP; Acer etc, please manually write this in the mobo field (ie Dell Dimension 3100 - as an example)

A:Keyboard usb switches not working

You need to plug the storage USB device directly into a USB port on the computer, or buy an external powered USB hub, and plug the storage device into the powered hub

A:New Windows XP install not performing at full potential

I'd suggest taking out 2 Gig of Ram, and test again.

You may also want to run CCleaner (it does help sometimes)
And also confirm you have all the latest Xp drivers loaded including MS Security Updates

A:RAM not being fully recognized, and not running full speed

You might not have anything wrong. 32 bit operating systems, whether XP or Vista, will not recognize the full 4GB of RAM, a 64 bit OS will. The 3.25GB is about right.

Keep in mind your RAM is DDR2. DDR is double data rate so it will be reported in the BIOS and CPU-Z at about half of its rated speed.

Hello,
I am having problems remotley administering my domain. I am using a vista computer to administer my domain remotely. When I try to open the domain users and computers appalet I get the message that says " naming information can not be located ...". I know that DNS is running (maybe not correctly) and that my computer logged on to the domain. DNS is the only thing that I can think as the problem. I can log onto OWA by typing in the ip address but I can not use the admin tools. Please help

Thank You
 

A:Can not connect to the server 2003 domain from the vista client

Well, how about fixing the DNS? Without working DNS, you can pretty much forget about doing anything with AD.

So my laptop has this weird issue with the numpad. Sometimes this computer works totally normal like a standard keyboard. But other times, like now... It changes the keys for a 15.4" laptop's numpad:

u = 4
i = 5
o = 6
p = *
j = 1
k = 2
l = 3
; = -
m - 0
/ = +

Now, this is a 17" computer, so it has the numpad and everything. It's an HP with Windows Vista Ultimate on it. Any help or suggestions would be great.

A:"recovery drive full." error message Hewlett Packard Pavillion Hp dv2500

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.
