unable to logon to server 2000 or server 2008 from windows 7 home

Q: unable to logon to server 2000 or server 2008 from windows 7 home

I have 2 servers; windows 2000 & windows 2008, I can always access them via XP but my system 7 home can't authenticate. It appears to add the domain name as a preamble my user name in the authentication....does this make sense?


thank

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.)

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

A:Server 2008 for home server... Opinions please.

Not sure what opinions you want. All I can say is that you don't need server 2008 R2 to complete your desired tasks. Any basic Windows client OS should work.

EDIT: It should be noted that Windows Server OS's are enterprise standards therefore a lot of home license applications will not install unless it is open source. You will need to purchase enterprise licenses of software for them to be installed on the server. This is particularly important with Anti-Virus solutions.

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

Cheers

Hi everyone. I've just put in charge of a small LAN at the school at which I work. There is a server computer running Win 2000 server, and the rest of the computers run Win 98... I've been having rather significant difficulties logging onto the server itself.... in some cases, I can, in others, I get messages ranging anywhere from "No server was able to verify your pasword," to just telling me that the password's wrong... if I had this problem with every computer, it wouldn't be as confusing, but in this case, since it works on some, some of the time, it's got me pretty stumped.

Hi. I've got a problem that has got me completely baffled. I've got 3 Windows XP Pro machines connecting to a Windows 2000 domain server. They all logon, but it takes probably 2 full minutes to get to the desktop after the logon screen. It sits at "Applying your personal settings" screen for what seems like forever and then finally gets to the desktop. I've checked the firewall settings for the network connection and it is disabled. I've reconfigured the server back to all default settings on group policy and the like. Nothing seems to help. Anyone else seen this or experienced this? Thanks for any info.

BTW, I've got SP2 installed on the server and the xp machines are brand new and updated.

How to set security on home drives for domain users.

Created a folder in my C drive

First did security and gave full control to domain admin minimum to users

then permission gave full control to domain admin and less to users

but when a user logs in they can access other users accounts and delete folders

and the users can even disconnect the home drive

any help on this?

A:Unable to install after windows 2008 R2 server

When an operating system is already installed and you want to replace it with a different one, you have to go into the BIOS Setup and change the first boot device to CD-ROM.

When you turn on your PC, look at the splash-screen which appears during the initial boot process. It will say "Press X to for Setup" (where X is the actual key you need to press and hold until the BIOS Setup screen appears).

Hello,

I have 2 computers (one with Windows 7, one with Windows Server 2008), but only ONE monitor. Ultimately, my goal is to network the two computers so that I can use TeamViewer (or a similar remote access application), so that I can control my Windows Server 2008 machine from my Windows 7 machine. I want this connection to go through LAN so there is minimal lag. I plan to use my crossover Cat-5 network cable to connect the two computers. How would I go about setting this network up so that they are connected to each other and I can use TeamViewer (etc) over LAN?

TL;DR: How do I setup a wired crossover network between a Windows Server 2008 PC and a Windows 7 PC? So that I can remotely access the Windows Server 2008 from the Windows 7 machine using TeamViewer.
Thanks

New guy here,

We have a server 2008 R2 (32) which is a domain controller, we recently switched from open storage (6 raid-5 drives in the server) to closed storage (removing the drive) every night. I do not want staff pulling the power on a domain controller every night to remove the drives, so I looked in the GPO "log on locally' and 'allow shut down'.

This works, however, the temptation is there to 'look around', see what we can see, etc.

Is there a way, either a security setting or a batch file that staff without admin right can log onto a server, down the server correctly, but not open windows explore.

I am thinking some way to write a script "IF logon server = \\DCSERVER then noaccess browsing" something like that, that is your are not an admin, and log onto a server, your Windows Explorer rights are limited.

Thanks.

When you install a later Windows version its boot environment will replace that of the existing OS.
It very well possible to install Windows 2008 R2 to VHD.

The message you receive can be ignored as Windows 2008 R2 boot manager can boot VHD's.
Moreover a dual boot will be created automatically.
The new boot environment (files) will be placed in System Reserved (and replace/amend the existing).

If you prefer shrinking d: and installing R2 on the newly created space you will have a slightly better disk performance everything else is the same for VHD or native partition install.

2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

Hi guys What free Antivirus software for servers What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea Info My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet He uses laptops at the most to access files on the server However at some points he will update Windows Server Server ? Free Antivirus e.g. for Server Windows 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet and obviously leave himself open Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 to malware etc for a short time The cost Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for workstations upwards and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down Questions I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution Also if he got Malware on it e g Rootkit or Delta would current Bleeping Computer tools e g Rkill RogueKiller etc still work on the server - or does it require another approach I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
 
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

At home a friend has a server w/Server 2000 and an xp pro sp2 computer that work fine together. She has a laptop w/XP Home sp2 that wont connect.

Is it a limitation of XP Home to not work with Microsoft Server 2000 ?

What effect and/or use is VNC Server software. Its on the server, does the laptop need THAT to get connected to the server? (If thats the case, could anyone point me to a crash course web site on it ?..)

Thank you all very much in advance...

A:VNC Server ? // XP Home w/Server 2000 ?

Yep, XP-Home will not connect to a domain server. You can connect directly to shared folders/drives in that server, you just can't do a domain login.

VNC is a remote control package, it has nothing to do with standard Microsoft networking.

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

Homegroup allows for sharing, server allows for sharing and having more than one user open the same file.

We are running Server 2008 R2 SP1. We incorrectly let an updating service upgrade IE9 to IE11 and we have tried taking steps to roll back to IE9. We successfully uninstalled IE11, but uninstalling IE10 is proving to be a problem.

In Program and Features -> Installed Updates, we see IE9 listed, not IE10. However when we open IE, it opens IE10.
We also ran and rebooted the following command from an elevated prompt:
FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*10.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

?? Those two statements seem to conflict with one another. Or are you talking about connecting manually? Like \\server\share ?

Are you running the RTM versions of those operating systems or the RC versions?

Your problem is such a random occurring one that I'm not sure what you can do to solve it. Possibly some network services are getting stopped.

Does it have anything to do with your bridged connections? You might try configuring the 2008 server into a DNS server or even Active Directory services. It might help to keep it in the network list. I have a similar setup and I haven't run into this problem yet.

A:Dual booting Win 7 Home Premium x64 & Server 2008 R2 in 2 partitions.

Why do you want Server 2008, you`ll never use it, do you have a way to activate it ?

Just split the drive in half, a 1 TB drive is too small for 4 partitions, but you could make 3, a pair of 300 GB and the rest for storage.

Your specs are fine.

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

Hi there. At work we have windows 2000 server and some xp pro stations. I'm trying to setup this new station with Xp home edition to use a printer that is connected to other xp pro station on the network. this new station has no problem accessing shared folder on the server and printers that are installed on server, but having problem accessing the printer installed on other station.

Tried to browse network printers but it couldn't find that printer, so I also tried the following path but it didn't work either.

THis path worked from other XP Pro stations that are logged on to the server.

Please help.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

A:FTP and VPN into Windows Server 2008

the Virtual server is run under a specific user-id; I think you need that id and password

<ctl><alt>del will get the task manager and the column name User Name is what you need.

scroll to the process controlling the VM

you may need to alter the settings for the VM to force it to run under another
specific user which you can set the pwd
create new account
set new password for it
login to that account to create the %profile% area​then assign the VM to run under that login

The server offers various basic network services such as DHCP, DNS, WINS, VPN, Active Directory, Certificate Services, IIS Web Server, FTP Server, etc. Server 2008 is far more expensive to buy licenses for.

Windows switches from the bios usb drivers to it's

I would suggest you consider using some virtual machine

I am currently installing a Win 7 box. When I first set things up I was able to get onto my Linux server in Network -> [server name], by logging in to Win 7 using the same user name and password set up on the Linux box.

A short while later I am unable to connect - I get a dialog prompting me to enter a user name and password and a message "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password". If I re-enter my user name and password the dialog comes back again.

I had a similar problem with a win 7 box about a year, but I've never had problems with XP.

Any clues out there?

A:Win 7 Home - unable to connect to samba server

I've fixed this by putting the following in \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts:

192.168.2.40 myserver
.. where myserver is the name of my samba server.

I've had to do this on all my win7 and one vista machine.

Why should this be necessary?

A:Do i have Windows server 2008 SP1 or regular 64 bit SP1 ?

Click Start, right-click Computer [or My Computer], click Properties, should tell what you have and will include whether it's a 32-bit or 64-bit version. A 64-bit computer can run either 32-bit or 64-bit OS [not at the same time] and either 32-bit or 64-bit programs but a 32-bit machine is limited to 32-bit software.

Boot from your Windows 7 DVD and do a Startup Repair.

You might also try EasyBCD (it helps manage dual boots). Download and install on your working OS. Use Advanced settings to add Windows 7 and configure it as a dual boot

I have installed Windows Server 2008 on one of my hard drives. It works and feels awesome. However there is one issue that I cannot resolve.

I have two PC's in my home that share the same internet connection. When running XP Pro both computers are able to access the internet with no problems however when I switch to the Windows Server 2008 on the host computer the PC that is running XP Pro can not access the internet.

The problem is when I look at the NICs the one for the other PC says "Network Cable is Unplugged" but it's not. Like I stated before it works fine if I reboot and use Windows XP.

Is there some setting within server 2008 that I need to change to correct this? The NIC card in question is using NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller and the drivers that Windows server has assigned.

Someone with some knowledge please help

Thanks

Hello all,

I am the new IT guy for a small business, and their server doesn't have an AV program. I'm wondering if there are any worthwhile free AV programs (which I would much prefer) for Windows Server 2008 , or if I should ask the owner to invest in one. Currently the company has AVG (some free and some licensed, I guess) on most client machines. Their system as a whole is a mess, but it's a new server domain that hosts some shared files and I'd like to keep it protected. Advice?

Thanks!

A:Multiple Windows Server 2008 R2

Make sure Routing is enabled on Server B - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...(v=ws.10).aspx

Then if still not working (I believe it should), try adding the static route on Server B (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...(v=ws.10).aspx):

Command is:

Code:
route add destination mask subnetmask gateway metric costmetric if interface
route add -p ServerA-IP-towards-Internal-A-Network mask Internal-A-subnetmask ServerB-IP-towards-Internal-A-Network

Just an example would be, assuming IPs are set like this for your network
route add -p 172.20.0.1 mask 255.255.0.0 172.20.0.254

Hello,

I have a dedicated windows server 2008 r2 enterprise.

I am running an SSTP VPN but only have 2 IP address to connect to the internet on.

My issue is that one of the IPs is for the IIS7 etc and the other is for VPN use.

How can I apply the same IP to more than one user allowing them to connect all at one.

There are in total about 5 users who want to use the VPN service and I dont really want to pay

For extra IPs due to the price.

Question?

How do I apply the same IP to all accounts and allow them to connect and all use the same IP at once.

A:Windows Server 2008 Installation

My preference with multi-booting any OSs is to only install one OS per harddrive, with all other harddrives disconnected during the installation. This permits using the F8 boot menu as a means of selecting the OS to boot to. I have tried a number of boot loader programs, and every one of them caused problems, and when a boot loader goes wrong, it can effect all OSs, not just one.

I have heard alot of people that were happy with VMWare, and it may be just fine...I don't know, because I have never used it. The only way that I might, is if I had insufficient harddrives to handle the load.

It is an 0xD1 error citing tcpip.sys (which is windows network stack driver system file); It would be prudent if you attach at least five of latest minidumps for analysis with your next post. In the interim, please check whether your network (NIC) drivers are upto date.
