    Re: Remove Mirror

    I’ve previously had a problem with Symantec AV and liveupdates, which for an unknown reason was taking up more and more space. As I could not find, and no one knew the password to access the AV I could not see what was happening.

    I found that it was storing the files in the following location:
    “%Profiles Folder%/All Users” < — Can't remember exactly which sub-folder.

    I tried deleting the old update files but that did not solve the problem as they were redownloaded, in the end I uninstalled the AV and installing an alternative.

    Hopefully this helps you in some way.

    in reply to: Installing Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008 DC #328489

    Re: Installing Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008 DC

    At home I’m testing Exchange 2007 SP1 enterprise on Server 2008 64bit Enterprise.

    So far Exchange installs fine with the exclusion of the connector error, can’t remember exactly the problem but it is document in microsofts KB.

    I’ve not tested functionality of exchange yet but every thing seems fine so far.

    Hope this help,

    Re: Is it possible to access the desktop from the login screen without a password?

    hmmm, (if using windows xp pro) wouldn’t it be easier to use group editor:
    run > gpedit.msc

    and modify auditing?

    navigate to:

    “local computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policy > Audit Policy > audit account logon events”

    any maybe other auditing options here

    That way logon events will show up on the event viewer, however these logs can be cleared.

    Becareful with auditing as if you logs are incorrectly set up and do not overrite you may have problems logging in on a none admin account (EG. logs are set to replace logs older that 30days and the file allocation is not large enough to support the number of events for 30days)

    Are you using windows Pro or home? as in home you can only get into the admin account using safe mode and by default it doesn’t have a password associated with it.

    Hope this helps

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    Every thing still seems to be working well with mobile admin tool now.

    However I’m still working on the content problem in ESM.

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    After uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of AVG remote admin, and a reboot it seems I can once again search/wipe/delete devices from user accounts.

    I will check later on today and tomorrow morning to see if this is still the case.

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    Hi Simon,

    In addition to the server being a DC and having Exchange installed.

    • IBM Tivoli – backs up exchange database & files on the server over TCP on the internet to a remote location
    • APC UPS monitor
    • AVG 8 Datacenter – Seems to be acting up, going to re-install
    • AVG 8 AV
    • AVG for Exchange 2000/2003/2007
    • .net framework 1.1/2/3
    • MS SQL Server Desktop Engine

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    Last night I reinstalled .net using the following command:
    “C:WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv1.1.4322aspnet_regiis.exe” -i
    rebooted the machine.

    1st search unsuccessful – same error
    2nd search successful
    more tries successful

    However I checked it today and it came up with the following error:
    “HttpException (0x80004005): Request timed out”

    Using the following site: http://www.ironspeed.com/

    I resolved the timeout error by inserting the following code:
    [/CODE]
    into web.config file

    However, it seems that the original problem still exists.
    The ESM error still exists too.

    —-

    My thoughts on this is that there might be be a program interfering with it.
    Any thoughts?

    The ESM error still exists too.

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    Thanks for the advice, I’ll give it a go tonight and see how things go.

    Re: ActiveSync MobileAdmin Tool: Device search causes error

    As an update I’ve done/tried the following:

    -Unistalled MobileAdmin Tool, rebooted followed by a re-install
    same problem still exists

    -Restarted IIS
    same problem still exists

    note: IE7 is installed on the system
    psapi.dll has been renamed psapi.dll.old
    in accordance with MS KB932513

    The following error has also been encountered within ESM:
    -When viewing contents of a public folder the attached images show an error
    followed by a logon screen for usual webmail access.

    Any one have any light on this?

    Is it a possibility that all these problems are related?

    in reply to: Profile issue #328481

    Re: Profile issue

    It sounds to me that it’s a file permissions issue.

    Are you on a domain? What OS are you running? Win XP Pro?

    I’m not sure exactly if you are not on a domain but there will probably be something similar.

    If you select the properties of the file/folder and select the security tab you should see all the read/write permissions.
    (You might need Administrator rights)

    in reply to: XP Pro (or Vista) and Outlook #328480

    Re: XP Pro (or Vista) and Outlook

    Are you using an exchange server?

    (the following may or maynot be useful for trouble shooting)
    If you suspect it is when outlook is sending/receiving check to see it’s connections

    hold [ctrl] and open the context menu of Outlook Icon in the notification area of the taskbar (right side, near the clock). Select “Connection Status” this will show you Outlooks current connections.

    TCPView http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx is also good for showing current connections.

    In regards to your system freezing I have had a few systems here freeze up on me while outlook was running. I found the problem to be the NIC or other hardware fault.

    If possible you could try using a different NIC, maybe as a temporary solution use a USB to Ethernet adaptor.

    Hope this helps in some way

    in reply to: Determinig Max. possible Broadband speed #328479

    Re: Determinig Max. possible Broadband speed

    The site that I quite like is http://www.speedtest.net, it does make a difference what node you check your speed with, I generally go with London.
    (Note: If you have more than a 1:1 contension ratio (usually 50:1 for home broadband) then what time you do the test will affect the results as at peak times more people will be sharing the same line, in a 50:1 contension up to a maximum 49 other people)

    BT have a speed checker also that can be found at http://www.speedtester.bt.com/ (note that this is for BT lines only). I’ve not used this for a while so I’m not sure how good it is now.

    http://www.samknows.com is a good place for finding information about your local exchange aswell as estimation of distance you are from it.

    http://www.dslzoneuk.net/maxspeed2.php seems to be a good tool for finding an estimation for ADSL2+ max speed. it is based on Downstream Attenuation.

    You can install the Exchange Admin Tools (customised version of Active Directory Users and Computers) on any client (XP) or server in the domain. Just run the exchange setup and select “admin tools only” (or something similar) as the install type.

    Alternatively, you can manage users in general from your exchange server without it being a DC

    Be careful when installing the Exchange Admin Tools, though it has only happened to me once I had a problem with sending emails (example: from word to Outlook) I traced it to “mapi32.dll”. Aparently the Exchange Admin Tools installed older version of the file.

    Note that this has only happened to me once.
