Q: {Advice Offered} - Renaming mac files on nt

i am archiving many old mac files from an nt server. the mac files' names contain a slash that appears as a |(pipe) symbol on NT. DOS sees it as a ? and i can't rename multiple files. i cannot copy these files to a cd unless i rename by getting rid of the | symbol or i replace it with a - (hyphen). right now, i am doing this one file at a time, and we are talking thousands of files. i tried rename wiz, but that understood the symbol like dos (?), and wouldn't work either. i need to be able to rename many files at once. can any one help?
thanks - staatsk

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.)

How do I convert .dat and .idx files that are read only to archive files in 2000?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Archiving files in NT-help!

Greetings

Go to the file in Explorer.

Once you are in the directory with the files, open up your command prompt. It should open up to that directory.

At the command prompt, type in the following command:

attrib *.idx -r +a

Do the same for the .dat files.

We have a server that is crashing and I want to anlyze the crash dump to see if I get some idea of what the problem is.

I doenload the OEM Support tools and the symbol files from Microsoft. Specifically I doenloaded the files oem3sr0.zip and oem3sr0s.zip.

I extracted both of these to a directory called e:\suptools

I am trying to run the kanalyze.exe program. It runs fine until the point where it asks for the location of the symbol files. I have tried pointing to various directories under e:\suptools but I always get the message:

I cannot continue any further.

Can anybody help. Am I extracting the symbol files to the correct location ?. Which directory should I point to? Are there any other file that I need to download?

A:{Advice Offered} - Kanalyze and Symbol Files

Greetings

OK, I know that on MY NT cd, there is a directory called \SUPPORT\DEBUG\I386\SYMBOLS, which is what that program is looking for....

However, if you have added any Service Packs (and I have to assume that you have at least installed SP3, if not then THAT is the reason for the Blue Screens ), then some of these symbol files are out of date.

You may need to download the symbol files for the Service pack that you have loaded. If you installed the SP off a CD, then look on the CD, as the Symbol files should be there... they are .DBG files.
And I must just say, trying to figure out Blue Screens from the Dump file sounds like the intuitive thing to do, but in my experience that has been a waste of time. Normally, it is either a Hardware fault, or some-one installing a WIN9x only program, and messing up an NT dll...

Anyway, good luck.

Our FoxPro application vendor suggested changing files= in config.sys to 250. If I am reading the documentation correctly, this should be changed in config.nt. When I increase it other programs start acting odd. Word will run and open files, but locks when I use the pull down menus.

What is the proper place to modify files=?
What is the optimal size?
Any other ideas would be helpful.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - config.nt files= in Professional

Greetings

Changing entries in Config.nt should not affect any 32-bit programs you are running. The config.nt file is only used for 16 bit programs running in the seperate memory space for 16-bit programs.

Look at the Icon for your Foxpro application. Does it have the "Run in a seperate memory space" box active? If so, then the Foxpro application is a 16-bit program and you should put a tick in that box, to make sure that it does not share the 16-bit memory space with other 16 bit programs.

Also, if you are using a 16-bit version of word (word 95 and lower, I believe), then I highly recommend updtaing. Especially if you are using Nt/2000 workstations.

Hi,

I need to save a list of file names to a file. I have read that this can be done using the Windows NT Explorer but I cannot find the article. What I would like to do is go into NT Explorer and highlight the files I am interested in and then do a command that copies the file names rather than the files into a document.

Does anyone know ho to do this?

Much Thanks!!
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Saving files name to a file

Greetings

There are GUI programs I am sure that will do this, but I prefer to use the command prompt.

All you need to do is echo a DIR command to a text file.

This is how you do it:

1) Open up a command prompt
2) Navigate to the directory that the files are in
3) Type in the following command:

DIR *.*>List.txt

This will give you a full list of all the files in the directory, pluse their sizes and dates and times when they were created.

You can refine the list you get with the command line parameters for the DIR command (type in dir /? for a complete list.

So... if you only want to list just the names of all your MP3 files in the directory, and all the subdirectories, and have the list file placed into the root of C:, then the command would be:

DIR *.mp3 /B /S>C:\MP3_list.txt

Using the command line parameters for the DIR command, you can do a lot of other refinements, but I will leave that to the student as an excercise (as my university lecturers loved to say).

A:{Advice Offered} - problems with .DLL files on start up

This is a standard .DLL that comes with most install files. It is the .DLL that (amongst other things) creates how a program looks. It is possible that an old version has been installed over the newer version by a rogue installation package.

Try re-installing your current Service pack to see if that helps. If not, rename the .DLL to .OLD and re-install the Epson software.

Well, I would put in one NIC per computer, use standard Windows 95 peer to peer networking. I would try to upgrade all machines to at least 32 meg RAM, but 16 would do if I couldn't manage 32.

Hell, I guess 8 would work, but it sure would be slow.

I would go with CAT5 patch cables and a small, inexpensive hub, to physically connect the machines. You could use BNC (coax type) cable and skip the hub, but hubs are so cheap now that I don't think that is a good idea.

As for roles - put all the shared files on the P133 since it has the most space and is the fastest.

A:{Advice offered} - Advice needed

Greetings

My advice: Go in on a weekend and re-install everything

Ok, now onto more practical advice:

Firstly, get a picture of the network. This means getting a floorplan of the buildings, walking around going from room to room, and writing down the number of PCs, the software OS (and service pack level, if applicable) installed, current hardware installed and the router they connect to.

Do the same for your servers. It is vitally important to know what hardware is in each PC, and what the specs of the PC are.

Next, you need to get a Logical map of your network. This is a picture of the IP addresses of the Routers, printers and servers (and workstations, if you are not using DHCP), and where the different subnet's are situated. You need to see what services are installed on your Servers (WINS, DNS, DHCP, IIS, Proxy etc). At this time, it is also a good idea to get a list of the accounts on the Server. You need to see which accounts are being used to run certain services, and make sure that only Service accounts are running those services. Next, you need to take away any user accounts that no longer correspond to people using the system (ie. if Mr Bradshaw last worked at the school 5 years ago, it is time to delete his user account). Ditto with any user home drives assigned to defunct users.

Lastly, you need to compile a list of discepancies. Look at your list created in the forst step, and get an idea of what a standard PC is (ie: Standard PC = at least Pent 200, minimum 32 Megs RAM, 4 Gig HD, CD-ROM, 100 Meg Network Card, DHCP IP address, WINS enabled, Win98 First Edition, Office 97 SP2, IE5.0, McAfee 4 {Scan Engine 4.0.26 Definition file 4038}). Once you have decided on what is the current base, you need to see which PCs are below that spec: if all the workstations in one room have 32 Megs of RAM except for one PC which has 16 Megs, it needs to be noted. If all PCs use DHCP, except for one room, which are all on a different subnet, and have static IP addresses, it needs to be noted. Once you have a list of discrepancies, you should talk to your supervisor: First about bringing those PCs that are woefully under spec to some semblance of usability, and then see where you can upgrade slowly the software (get McAfee or Norton Antivirus up to the latest scan engine and virus definition files, Office to the latest service pack etc).

This might take a while, but use the time to try and clean out all the bumpf (old programs, data, etc - just make sure that it is junk before you get rid of it) that accumulates especially from the server.

I hope that gets you started

I finally got RAS to work (see this post) but now another problem has come up. While I can access the network with Find and mapped drives, I can't browse the network in Network Neighborhood. When I try to see the contents of 'Entire Network' I get an error that the network is not accessible. Net View in DOS doesn't work either.

According to the MS KB, these types of problem are caused by the lack of a working Browse Master but I am logging into a Win2k Server which, as I understand it, should automatically be the browse master. The other computers on the network that are directly connected don't have this problem at all. Even if the server is not acting as browse master, I tried setting the client's browse master setting to both Enabled and Automatic with no better results.

It is possible for your computer to be running at a high percentage CPU rate without necessarily using all of your physical memory.

You can use task manager to determine the memory and CPU usage of the programs that you are running.

To start Task Manager press CTRL-ALT-DEL and select Task Manager. Select the Processes tab to see a list of processes.

You can take a BDC and make it a PDC and vice versa but you can't take a member server and promote it to PDC. You will need to reinstall server however if you partition your hard drive before reinstalling you can keep all that data on the partition and not have to move it again.

3) Do not click on the option to allow them to access the rest of the network. Only do this if:

Did you install DOS or just copy the DOS files to the DOS directory.

If you installed DOS after NT was installed then the installation of DOS has probably overwritten important boot information needed for NT to install.

This could probably be fixed by starting the NT installation procedure and choose the repair option. Get the setup procedure to repait the boot information.

My question is, the next PC I am going to attempt to install it on is a Compaq 7994. It has an Athlon 900mhz, 128 meg ram, and standard Compaq drives and other crap. Do you think it will take the Win 2k intall, or like most Compaq will I get compatability errors?

Worst case scenario - You install Win2K and the PC blows up... hmm

Bad Case scenario - You install Win2K, you get loads of errors, and you need to re-FDISK and re-install Win98 (hmmm... I might prefer my PC to blow up rather then have to put Win98 on it).

Best Case Scenario - You install Win2K, and it works.

All in all, it looks like giving it a bash wont hurt... it just might mean a wasted afternoon.

Good luck, and tell us how it went..

(Normal advice applies however: Go to the Compaq site and check if you need to run a Softpaq update to the BIOS for Win2K, make sure you have all the latest Win2K drivers for your hardware etc)

I took out a hard drive with Windows NT Workstaion 4.0(SP6) on it and used it on another PC that I put together. I didn't run at all. Then I reinstalled NT again. Now it working fine except the NT is NOT recognizing the netcard(SMC Fast Ethernet 10/100 1211 series). I tried installing the drivers and it didn't work. I can't select it from the list of netwark adapters. I am simply stumped at this point. Please tell me what to do. The netcard works just fine on Windows 98.

The other problem I am having is when I installed NT first time, I had partitioned my hard drive in two, 4 GB each. Now I see only the 4 GB partition. I did fdisk and delpart. But I don't seem to get the 8 GB size of my hard drive. Please tell how to get back the full hard drive size.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - WindowsNT

As for moving the harddrive to another PC, it won't work correctly unless the PCs are almost (or exactly) identical. NT loads much hardware specific information during installation. Even at that, the NIC will have to be uninstalled (not physically) and reinstalled to enter the correct MAC address for the NIC. After re-installing NT (upgrade??) it would unfortunately keep most of the hardware settings during install. If you did a new install and the NIC doesn't work, you may need newer drivers from the SMC web site for NT. Partition Magic is what I use to fix all sorts of partition problems. You can extend the 4Gig partition to the rest of the drive or create new partitions and format them in FAT16, FAT32, NTFS or HPFS. It can also convert one format to another without data loss (backup first to be safe).

I have one Win 95 machine in a suite of 29 connected to an NT4 (SP6.0a) server which will not let me log onto the network saying there is an IP conflict. How do I crack in past the logon screen with admin rights and then change the IP to let others log on.

Also how did it happen when the system has been operating fine for ages.

Thanks in advance

Um... there are no admin rights on a Win95 machine. Just hit escape at the logon screen. You do not need to be a domain admin to reset a win95 machine's IP address.

However, you do need to be a LOCAL admin on an NT workstation, to reset it's IP address.

In the properties of Networking Client For Microsoft, you need to tick the box that says something like "Log on to a Microsoft NT domain", and type in the correct name for your domain (that is... if you have a domain).

The workgroup name under the Identification tab should be the same as your domain name (or the workgroup name, if you are running a workgroup not a domain).

If you have NT, then you do NOT need a boot manager. NT's boot menu can easily boot between NT, Win98/5, MS-DOS and Linux, all at once.

In fact, I have set up a system that was able to multiboot NT, Win98, Dos 6.22 and Red Hat Linux all from NT's boot menu.

I have documented how I did this on my website:

Hi, I've set up a multi-homed NT Server with 2 Network cards so that it can act as a Gateway across 2 subnets (also 2 domains). I'm about to move this server off site, and need it to work across a Dial up link. Everything works fine when I have it hard-wired to the network, but when I disable the NIC and give the DUN connection that IP address it doesn't want to forward IP packets anymore. I can still ping to and from the server OK, but not through it. I've tried installing the 'Routing and RAS' Service, but it's still not working and I'm not sure I know how to configure it correctly. Has anyone else done this and know where I'm going wrong ?
Any help greatly appreciated as always.

Thanks, D.

 

A:{Advice Offered} - Routing across DUN

Hello, will there be a machine answering your call? Another NT box? If so you can try this in NT 4.0. Take the second nic out or disable it. For saftey sake you could copy your HW profile and make one called test. And make all the changes in the test profile. Again you'll need something to answer the call on the other side.

1) In your network setting's for the NIC leave the default gateway blank.

2) Edit your registry by going to the following Key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasArp\Parameters

Create a new value entry called: (w/o the quotes)

"DisableOtherSrcPackets of type DWORD" and set the value to 0

What this does is when you forward an IP packet it won't change the from source. *while this is neccessary for creating a Internet router via dial-up it may not be neccssary in your situation. Try it w/o doing this first.

3) In your dial-up networking edit your tcp/ip settings and click the second radio box "specify an ip address" and enter your addy that was on the second NIC. If you use DNS put your DNS servers IP in the DNS fields.

4) Start up dial up networking and add the entry for dialing out to your remote side.
On the server tab under dialup server types choose ppp,windows NT. Under protocols choose TCP/IP and edit the settings as mentioned above. Uncheck the Ip header compression and use default gateway on remote system.

5) Open your control panel and under Network Protocols->TCP/IP->Routing enable IP forwarding.

6) Once you reboot open a command line and add a couple of routes:

route -p add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x metric 2

Where x.x.x.x is the ip that's in your TCP/IP settings for DUN.

7) Make all the pc's on the net point to the IP of the NIC for their gateway.

* you'll have to play around with the authentication settings between the two remote hosts.

Good luck,

A:{Advice Offered} - TCP/IP printers

Greetings

I am not absolutely sure, but the following are problems found in NT4: <ul>
[*]This problem can occur if the comment field for a shared printer contains more than 256 characters, including 2 characters for each new line.

Note that when you initially set up a shared printer with more than 256 characters in the comment field, one of the following messages may be generated:

- Printer settings could not be saved. The RPC server is unavailable.

- Printer settings could not be saved. The data area passed to a system call is too small.

- Printer settings could not be saved. The parameter is incorrect.

RESOLUTION
==========

To allow the system to properly share a logical printer, make sure that the printer Comment field does not have more than 256 characters total. As a test, you may want to copy the entire comment field into notepad and save the text as a file. Check the size (in bytes) of the file to determine whether you have exceeded the 256 character limit.
[*]When you check the properties of a shared printer by using the Printers folder,
you may get the following error message after you click OK, even without making
any changes:

Printer setting could not Be saved. Data area passed to a system call is too small.

122L Error_insufficiant_Buffer

You may also find that this shared printer does not appear in the shared resources list when you click Shares in the Server tool in Control Panel, or when you do a net view command.

Also, Network clients will not be able to see the printer when trying to browse and connect to it.

CAUSE
=====

This error can occur if the specific printer's share on the print server becomes
corrupted.

RESOLUTION
==========

To resolve this problem, perform the following steps:<ol>
[*] Click Start, click Settings, and then click Printers.

[*] Right-click the problem printer, and then click Sharing.

[*] Write down the share name of the printer.

[*] Stop sharing this printer by clicking the Not Shared radio button, and then close the printer folder.

[*] Open Control Panel, double-click Services, select the Spooler Service, click Stop, and then click Start.

[*] After the Spooler Service restarts, open the printer folder and re-create the printer share using the share name found in step 3. Do this by clicking Start, clicking Settings, and then clicking Printers. Right-click the problem printer, and then click Sharing. Click the Shared radio button, and then share the printer with the same name as before.
[/list=a]
MORE INFORMATION
================

The above steps are a workaround that should eliminate the error message received when viewing the printer's properties and also enable the printer to again be seen on the network.

This exact cause of the share corruption is not known at this time.
[/list]

I hope one of these help

I installed Tweak UI on my Dell Optiplex running WinNT 4 SP 6. Now it is not happy constantly messing up the icons and generally not working properly. Unfortunately Tweak UI will not uninstall. It just gives an error message about not being able to uninstall.

So I have two questions:
1) How do I uninstall Tweak UI and correct the problems associated with having installed it?
2) On my Win 95 & 98 computers I use the ERU utility to back up the registry before I install a program. That way I can restore my registry if something goes wrong. How would I do this for WinNT?

Thanks for the help
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Tweak UI

Greetings

There are a few things you can do:

1) Delete your ShellIconCache file (it is a hidden file in the root of your Winnt directory) and then get TweakUI to rebuild the icons.

I have seen when TweakUI messes with the icons when IE4 with the desktop upgrade is installed, and you have set TweakUI to hide the shortcut arrow. Even if you set that setting back, it still messes with the icons. Deleteing that file, and getting TweakUI to recreate it (you may have to do this once or twice).

Or, you could download NT TweakUI 1.33. It seems to be working brilliantly on my Win2K machine...

As for backing up the registry... I normally use standard NT backup programs (NOT the backup program that came with NT4, but programs like Backup Exec). I do not really know of small registry saving programs...

I am guessing that that would seem that some of your programs are seriously, not compatible. Make sure that you have NOTHING running in your system tray (especially virus scanners etc).

Open up a command prompt and navigate to the i386 directory on your CD. Once there, type in this command:

This will run a report checking the hardware and software on your machine, to see of it is compatible with Win2K. You can read it's report at the end of it's run.

You may need to upgrade the system BIOS first, or you may need to uninstall a program first. You may also need to install win2K on a frshly formatted drive (this is always my recomendation).

Good morning peoples,
Just wondering here...My network here is NT4, with a few W2K machines scattered throughout.
I've been thinking of bringing the servers up to W2K, but I'm wondering about the fully qualified domain names W2K requires for DNS.
Say our current network name is BOB. Will I have to change the network name to BOB.com? And my computer to, say, myeyeshurt.BOB.com?
If I do, won't that cross some wires with whatever company or person out there with an internet domain like www.BOB.com?
Why can't we just stick with WINS? Arrrrr!!
Thanks, and have a pleasant end-of-the-month-ish time...
 

A:{Advice Offered} - FQDN's in W2k

Greetings

OK, while you still have NT4 servers and workstations on your network, you will be running in mixed mode, which means that WINS (or a reasonable facsimile of WINS) will still be running.

Also, your FQDN does not necessarily mean they have to conform to internet naming standards as set out by ICANN. So, a FQDN name that you could use is:

station4.chicago.bob.comm

If you read the following Technet article: Setting Up an Active Directory Domain you will read the following:

This means that the Active Directory domain now shares the same naming structure (or namespace), as the DNS domain. For example, in previous versions of Windows NT, a computer might be referred to as "SERVER1" under NetBIOS of the Windows network domain and "server1.microsoft.com" under the DNS domain. In Windows 2000, the computer will be referred to as "server1.microsoft.com" under both the Active Directory domain and the DNS domain.

However, it is important to recognize the differences between Active Directory and DNS. They store different data and manage different objects, even though they work very closely together.

DNS is a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) name resolution service, which stores resource records mainly to translate domain names into their corresponding IP addresses. Although DNS can function independently without Active Directory, its data can be integrated and stored in Active Directory, in which DNS information is automatically replicated to other domain controllers, thus providing enhanced reliability and security for the DNS service.

On the other hand, Active Directory is a directory service, which stores and resolves domain object name requests into object record data (for example, replying to a request for the network configuration of a computer). To locate an Active Directory server, an Active Directory client first queries its assigned DNS server to find out the IP address of the Active Directory server. As part of the design, DNS is required for Active Directory to function. In fact, setting up an Active Directory domain controller will generally result in the setup of a DNS server during the installation process, if no DNS server can be found on the network.

This means that the FQDN name that you give your network can, in fact, be anything. For external links, you DNS server needs to know which DNS server to send your request to (there are different root servers for .COM .NET etc), but internally, your DNS *is* the server that needs to service the request.

Hope that helps

Is it possible to install sixteen bit applications on windows 2000?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - 16-bit applications

Greetings

It totally depends on the program. Some program do not attempt to access the hardware directly, and these programs still work (though not brilliantly). Some programs (like games, system tweakers and defraggers, especially) attempt to access the hardware directly, and these programs will fail.

What program are you trying to install/use, and is there no newer 32-bit version available?
Another solution, is to run a VMware session and install Win95 or DOS 6.22 in it, and run your 16-bit program through VMware.

How can I remove the partition that NT left on my hardrive? I am using 98se but now I only have 1/3 of my hard drive. Fdisk did not help, I could not remove the extended DOS partion, It says I can not remove it because of logical dos drives.Selecting the delete option for logical dos drives on the extended DOS partition said, No Logical dos drives are defined----All logical dos drives have been deleted.
going back to the "delete extended DOS partition" says "cannot delete because logical dos drives exist". Deleting the non-DOS partition said,"Partition is not a non-DOS partition.-".And so on and so on and so on.

Hi everyone,

Hopefully, someone will be able to help me on this one....

I've got an NT Print Server (NT 4.0 SP6) running three Ricoh Aficio printers on TCP/IP. These have been set up as a test for future printers and I have enabled auditing to capture all print jobs. The thing I have noticed is that for each print request, two logs are recorded in Event Viewer:-

One log says that the downlevel document has been deleted. And then one (the only one I need to know about) says that the document has been printed.

Is there any way to prevent logs of downlevel documents being shown or is it just something I have to put up with?

Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Do you then want a Webpage to appear? If so, then you need to install Peer Web Services. I do not know if WinME has that option available (it was available in Win95 and Win98). If you had Win2K, you could install IIS (Internet Information Server) 5.0, which comes with Win2K.

What you can do, is go to www.apache.org and download the Apache web server, which is one of the most well used web servers on the internet. Download the Win32 executable, as the other downloads are for Linux, BSD and other operating systems.

Hey there,

Occasionally he needs to log on to the W2k domain, which goes flawlessly, tankyouverymuch, but the thing is...he would like to carry his profile over to the other domain as well, but that just aint happenin. We've been able to transfer a couple things over manually, but stuff like NTUSER.DAT won't go.
Is there any way to get this to work? And if there is, is there a way to get this done automatically? I'll have to do this to a few more people eventually, and as it goes right now, it's a royal pain in the ol' backside.
Thank ya.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Roaming w2k?

OK, your main problem here, is that each account on the two different domains have their own SID (Security IDentifier). Now, that number is stored inside the NTUSER.DAT (the NTuser.dat file is just the HKey_Current_user tree in the registry).

I you have the same Username on both networks, then when the PC logs onto the other domain, the PC will look inside the Documents and Settings folder (or the network drive, depending on how it is setup) for a directory with the same name as the username. When it finds it, it will try load the NTuser.dat file into the registry.

However, if the SIDs do not match, then the PC will create a USERNAME.000 directory, and create a new profile in there.

What you can do, is edit the registry on both acounts and look in the :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

key, and change the location for each folder to a shared profile area, but the NTuser.dat file will have to be in two different places.

Hope this helps

What is the procedure for adding a W98 client to a NT4 server? After the enter network password screen a window comes on saying incorrect parameter. Thanks for any help.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - W98 client

Greetings

I have no idea what you are actually trying to do here.

Are you trying to get the person who usually logs onto a Win98 machine to physically log onto your server, or are you trying to get a win98 machine to logon onto the domain?

I am going to work on the assumption that it is the second of my two scenarios. Firstly, you need to make sure that the Win98 machine has network conectivity. Pinging a few IPs on the network will see if it has. If the pings are returned, then it is on the physical network.

Then we need to see that address translation is working. In the TCP/IP settings on the Win98 machine, make sure you have the correct IP address for your WINS server (or DNS server, which ever you use, or both if you use both). Reboot, and see if the machine can ping computer names (not just IP addresses, like last time). If it can, then it is getting the correct address translation.

Now, you need to make sure that Client for Microsoft Networks is installed, and that in it's properties, your DOMAIN name is correctly spelled (not the name of your server, but the DOMAIN's name).

Then, all you need to do, is make sure that the username and password used is a valid username, with the correct password.

Timeouts are actually set on the Shell accounts on the system you are connecting to (well, that is what the Unix guru sitting next to me tells me, and who am I to argue with him?).

Otherwise, it might be able to be set on the program you are using to connect to the remote system, but Win9x/WinNT's telnet client is not very configurable, so you might need to download a better one.

Thanks
 

A:{Advice Offered} - New programs

Greetings

Ok... those are two questions: <ol>
<LI> How do I get programs out of the system tray?

There are a few ways. Firstly, find out how they get into the system tray. Normally, these programs get in there during startup. So look under your Start Up section of your Start menu. You can delete shortcuts out of this directory, and at next boot up, the programs will not start up.

You can also look in your registry in the following keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce

(Not all the keys will exist, so do not worry if you do not have a few of them).

If you find a line with the name of the offending program, you can delete this line (don't forget to backup the registry, just in case).

With some programs, if you actually look in the programs options, you will find a setting to stop it loading up in the system tray at startup.

<LI> When I open some programs that are not microsoft certified they prompt me with a message saying this program may not perform properly. Is there a way to turn this off?

What program is doing that? Normally, that message is from your email, and it is one of the protections put in mby Microsoft to get people not to run programs from their mail, because they may be running viruses. If you do not want to see it again, copy the program out of your mail and onto your HD, and then run the program from your Hard Drive.

Hi,

I need your help. How do I configure multiples harddrives as one. And where can I find information, on the net about the different levels of Raid.

Thank You,

TengJ
 

A:{Advice Offered} - RAID

Greetings

To creat a RAID setup, you go to Disk Administrator in NT4, and to Computer Management in W2K. Clicking on the help button should give you all the info you need to create which ever RAID array you want.

Here is a brief explanation of the different types of RAID setups you can configure in NT/W2K:

Volume Set: Connects different size drives together into one logical drive. Problem is, is that it is hellishly slow, and if one of the drives fail, you can toss the entire logical drive... I hope you made daily backups!

Mirror: Lets you copy (in real time - i.e. as it is happening) the information on one drive to another drive. The reason for this, is that if the first drive fails, you just slot in the backup drive and there is access to all the data again. Problem is, is that you waste an entire HD, and the write time is slow, as it is having to write the info twice. Cool thing is, is that if that first drive fails, you are still ok, and can be up and running minutes later.

Stripe Set: This lets you connect 2 or more drives of the exact same size (or at least, the partitions must be of the exact same size) together into one logical drive. The reads and writes are done sequentially accross all the drives. This means that in a three drive Strip Set, the first byte of a file is on drive1, the second byte is drive2 and the third byte is on drive3. The fouth byte will go onto drive1, and the fifth byte onto drive2, etc. The benefits of this, mean that you can read and write X times faster then (where X equals the number of drives you have in the array) if only had one drive. However, you start to lose the speed benefits the more drives you add to the array (this is true of the Software Stripe Set. However, in a Hardware Stipe Set, where a controller card is handling the read and write commands, you can add many more drives before you start to lose speed by adding more drives). The problem is, is that if one drive fails, you loose the entire array.

Stripe Set with Parity: This is similar to the stripe set. The difference is that you need 3 or more drives, and one of the write bytes will not be a data byte, but a parity byte. A parity byte, in essence, is just a check byte. All the other bytes in the single pass are added up, and the result is written into the parity byte. And the partity bytes are spread out equally between each of the hard drives in the array. So, in a 4 drive array, it will look something like this:

<table width="45%" border="0"><font size=-1><tr><td><u>Drive1</u></td><td><u>Drive2</u></td><td><u>Drive3</u></td><td><u>Drive4</u></td></tr><tr><td> Data</td><td> Data</td><td> Data</td><td> Parity</td></tr><tr><td> Data</td><td> Data</td><td> Parity</td><td> Data</td></tr><tr><td> Data</td><td> Parity</td><td> Data</td><td> Data</td></tr><tr><td> Parity</td><td> Data</td><td> Data</td><td> Data</td></tr></table>
Now, the above collection may be just one file. There are benfits to this type of array. Firstly, it is faster then just having one drive (though, not as fast as a plain Stripe set, as it has to calculate the parity byte and write it). Also, if one drive fails, you can pop it out of the array, and pop in a new one, and run a repair. The OS will then look at all the parity bytes and calculate the bytes that are missing, and write them into the correct place. Or, just recreate the parity byte from all the bytes in that row. Unfortunately, if two drives fail at the same time, it is unrecoverable, and you will need to go to your backups.

Of course, you can use combinations of the methods above. In one of my comapnies cl... Read more

HELP!!!! I've got two PC's that for some reason DO NOT access the network. I've checked that the settings are the same as every other one in the network that are working just fine, but for some reason, these two are not found. They are on Win95, with a 3com card. Could it be that the ports that they are on are not active? IF so, how can I check that? I've heard of pinging, but have no idea how to do it, can someone give me some help? I'd really appreciate it!!
 

A:{Advice Offered} - NT access HELP

Greetings

OK, the easy way to check the ports is to take a machine that definately works. Then unplug that machine from it's current port and plug it into the port that you suspect. if the computer can not access the network, it is the port.

You can also test the cable of one of the computers that can NOT get on, by putting it into the port of a computer that CAN get on. If the computer can get on, then the cable is fine. If it can't, then it might be the cable that is at fault.

The PING test to see if TCP/IP networking is working works like this:
<LI> It only works if TCP/IP is installed

Firstly, open up a Command Prompt. Ping is run from the command line.

The first test, is to ping the loopback address of the computer, just to make sure that TCP/IP is installed and is active. You do that by typing in:

ping 127.0.0.1

If that returns a successful four pings, then TCP/IP is installed.

Next, we check the PC's IP address. So Ping the IP address that the PC is supposed to have.

Next, ping the IP address of a computer next to the problem PC. This checks that there is physical network communication working.

Next, ping the default gateway defined in the TCP/IP settings. This is just to check that the computer can see the default gateway. Then ping a computer on the other side of the gateway. If you get a reply, that means that the Subnet mask is correct.

A:{Advice Offered} - Problems with Win NT

Greetings

Well... I had a look at the 3Com site. It sent me directly to where I wanted to go... but when I went looking for further information, it sent me into a circular pattern around the first page it sent me to... I was like in a holding pattern from hell.

Anyway, I think I have gotten one or two answers:

<ol>
<LI> There may be no drivers for the cards under NT. I copy and pasted this straight off the 3Com web site:



Hmmm... no mention of NT there.
<LI> The following driver MIGHT work:
3Com Fast Etherlink PCI 10/100BASE-T Adapter (3C595)

I hope this helps

I'm trying to network two computers with Windows 98 SE with ADSL.
Under ICS heading "General": Setting- it states;"Connect to the internet using; select the connection that you use to access the internet". Nothing is indicated on the bar nor does it allow for an insertion. Under heading "Select the network adapter that you use to access your home network";
Automatically, my ethernet card is indicated "Intel 21041 based Ethernet Controller" After clicking "ok",Windows displays "You must select the adapter that you use to access the internet before saving changes". It will not allow me to accept the aforementioned ethernet card. As a result I cannot get Internet connection sharing to show up on the Network window. What can I do?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - ICS Wizard

ICS is a PAIN, big one. But here is some help, first go get some headach med, then read the following artical. After which you should be able to get it up and going.

Note, I strongly suggest, removing all ICS from your system, and starting over following the directions in this artical. ICS is tricky, and seems to only setup if you do everything just right the first time, otherwise you have to start all over.

and lastly, GOOD LUCK!

Crash dump is disabled! NT failed to initalize the boot partition paging file for crashdump. This may be because the system has more than 3.8GB of physical memory. how do i clear this event i only have 192 meg of ram !!! any ideas thanks rodman know i am full of questions to night
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Event id 43

Are you asking how to clear the event log? You can do that by going into the Event Viewer, choosing the Log menu, then choosing Clear All Events.

That error means that you don't have enough free space on your boot partition for a RAM dump. You can either free up space, or you can move the location of the crashdump file. Control Panel, System, Startup/Shutdown tab - Write Debugging information to. You can also disable the feature, then you will never be bothered by it.

I have a Windows NT Server 4.0. It has dual 700 MHz Pentium III processors. This machine serves as more than a server, and I would like to install a CD-RW. So far I have not been able to find a drive that is comatible with/supported on NT Server. Can anyone give me some ideas? Changing the OS is not really an option. Thank you.

Need help backing up a drive in nt4 using the "AT" command in a dos promt. Need to know what the syntax would be. Thanks
 

A:{Advice Offered} - at command in nt

Greetings

What are you trying to back up?

If it is just your data, then setup a CMD file with all the commands in it (to stop which ever services might be holding the files open, copy the data, and restart the services up again).

Then you just need the AT command to run the CMD file at a specific time:

AT /every:M,T,W,Th,F C:\backup.cmd
However, this is not the best way to backup your server. The best way is to actually get a backup software (like Backup Exec, or ArcServe), which will have it's scheduler, that you can use to backup files that a simple copy cammoand can not backup (like the registry, and any open files).

My boss is installing PCAnywhere on NT 4.0 machines. On one machine, only logging on as administrator to the machine allowed pc anywhere to be installed (instead of logging on as administrator to the domain). In another machine, an error message comes up that indicates either files or missing or the something in the registry has to be changed. I heard that deleting a file on NT 4.0 called "Program" II don't know the extension) can fix a lot of PCAnywhere problems. Does anyone know if that's true?

I'd try installing a service pack first. A lot of times that will fix corrupt or missing files. However before you do that make sure you uninstall PC any.., then run the SP, then try PC any again.

While Definately NOT recommended, it is possible. Here are some Technet articles that will help you through the process:

I installed Windows 2000 Professional on an NTFS partition and it seemed to work okay. I decided I wanted it on FAT32 so I could multi-boot with '98. So, I re-FDISKed the drive and set up a FAT32 Primary partition using half the drive space, about 5 Gigs.

I installed 2000 and on boot, I get this INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE error message. Frankly, I know nothing of NT or 2000 and have no idea how to fix this.

Would someone please refer me to a place where I can troubleshoot such an error?

Hello Everyone,

I just got a new job with a non-profit organization that deals with disadvantaged kids in Columbus, OH.

This job involves a great deal of networking which I am not experienced in. I am knowledgable in a lot of other computer related areas, but not in networking.

We have Win NT 4.0 servers and desktops in our organization and I need to get some basic training in Win NT 4.0, but the organization's funds is very limited at this time.

Does anyone know of any on-line places where I can get some basic Win NT 4.0 training?

I've heard of some interactive CD training, but I am not certain if there are any for Win NT 4.0.

Can anyone help out?

Any help is appreciated!

Regards

A:{Advice Offered} - Win NT Training

Yes there are several sites, most require you to buy their software. By far the cheapest way would be to buy books instead. To get the general overview of NT4 you could try several books, but just for example, ExamCram. The majority of the examcram books are about 30 USD. You can buy them in a bundle (NT server 4.0,TCP/IP,NT workstation,etc..) These will sometimes include testing cds, which give random questions similar to those given when testing for the Microsoft certified professional/Microsoft certified System Engineer certifications.
I have given examcram as an example since it condenses this material quite nicely. Though if you have time you could read other books which go further into detail, but I fear the demands on your time which your work will demand will probably limit you to a condensed overview, verses a book which elborates on each detail and the theory behind them.

I need your expertise. I have a group of developers in our organization that need to do some heavy testing on their web server (they want to emulate a thousand or so users hitting it at once), and we want to put them on another segment outside of our trusted network, but still allow them access to some of our resources. If I install a router and allow them to access our network will the traffic that they generate during their testing come over to our side and affect our bandwidth etc….

It shouldn't. the only traffic that will come over the router is traffic that is addressed to the other side of the router.... if they are connecting to a PC on thier side of the router, the traffic will stay there.

Hi,
Can you Create a Domain with out windows NT Server, eg With Win95/98/Windows NT Workstation.

Or to set up the Network so when a user logson it will run a logon script

@Echo off
Netuse F: //Server/Common
Netuse G: //Server/Resorces
Netuse H: \Home

I want a user to have there own saving space in the G drive i can do it manuley but it means a sertan user has to stay on that computer?

Thanks for any advice
 

A:{Advice offered} - Domains

No, to have a Domain, you MUST have a PDC(primary domain controller) setting up a network with 9x or NT workstation machines gives you a workgroup.

As far as people having their own space on the server, you can set up home directories for each user when creating their accounts in User Manager for Domains. You will need a share on the server and when you create the account go into the profile button and specify the path to their share by using the %username% variable. That way, when the account is created their directory will be created that only they can access!
