  • Administering Vista on Server 2003



    As the title says, can this be done or will we have to upgrade to server 2008? We are starting to see more and more Vista machines / Windows 7 on the market and I recon were going to have to update pretty soon if we need to.

    Has anyone any experience in upgrading to server 2008 as a result of Vista / Win 7 systems

    We only have one Vista system on our Win 2003 AD domain. It functions fine apart from one little thing - pre-authentication fails on user/machine logins:

    Log Type: Security
    Source: Security
    Type Of Event: Failure Audit
    Category: Account Logon
    EventID: 675
    Account: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
    Computer: TITAN
    Description: Pre-authentication failed:
    User Name: perfect-user
    User ID: %{S-1-5-21-434221507-3794906203-392007587-2737}
    Service Name: krbtgt/BRILLDOMAIN
    Pre-Authentication Type: 0x0
    Failure Code: 0x19
    Client Address: 192.168.0.129

    However, this is invisible to the user and does not affect their ability to log on.

    We plan to install some Win7 machines in the next month, but have no plans to upgrade the server to Win 2008

      The reason I ask this question is I use Vista / Win 7 & XP at home and the Vista & Win 7 machines can always see things on the XP machine but XP cant get to everything on the more advanced systems. We obviously need full control of all PC's from a domain controller for security reasons.

        This is simply a matter of configuration. My home network also comprises WinXP Pro and one other machine that was running Vista Ultimate, and which I recently upgraded to Win7 Ultimate. Two-way networking is not a problem.

        Are there specific problems you have encountered that you are unable to resolve?

            Nothing specific, it just didnt fill me with confidence when my vista machine could see teh XP box but it wasnt a 2 way thing.

            I suppose I need to get a Win 7 / Vista box set up & start testing it out

              On the security and share dialogs you can use the general controls to set up a share. However, once the share is set up, access its properties and you will see more specific controls marked with a UAC icon that allow you to specify granular permissions for members of the domain, exactly as you can for XP, 2003.
