Re: New starter
You need to set up forwarders on your DNS server to point to your router DNS or your ISP DNS addresses to allow access to internet.
1. Open DNS console
2. Open properties of DNS server object
3. Click on Forwarders tab
4. Add IP addresses for ISP DNS servers or your router (which ever suits your network)
Then on the clients, you should then only configure DNS to point to your internal server and it will either resolve your internal DNS addresses or forward them on for internet addresses.
Re: Exchange Server 2003 on Windows Server 2008
I have an early version of Windows 2008 beta and I can install IIS (you need the IIS 6 components as well), SMTP, ASP.NET but NNTP is missing. Maybe you need to wait for a later build of Windows 2008 for NNTP.
So basically, You can only use Exchange 2007 with Windows 2008 as it does not use NNTP in Exchange 2007 any more :-(
Re: user in LCS
You need to install the Admin tools from the LCS 2005 CD. Then use Active Directory Users and Computers console to enable users to use LCS either using the wizard or the Live Communications tab which is added to the properties of the user.February 3, 2008 at 4:41 pm in reply to: MMC Cannot Open the File "%SystemRoot%system32dsa.msc #312659
Re: MMC Cannot Open the File "%SystemRoot%system32dsa.msc
Run Adminpak.msi to install the missing management consoles.
Re: Printer access based on active directory site
Have you considered using GRoup Policy based Printing (which comes with Windows 2003 R2)? Then you can use GPOs to assign printers to computers automatically rather than to users.
Obviously computers can only be used in one location (except laptops), and thus would work for different sites.February 3, 2008 at 4:33 pm in reply to: New Email Account can send emails but can’t receive #312656
Re: New Email Account can send emails but can’t receive
I would check your DNS settings and your Recipient Policy settings. Which email domain are you using? xxxx.com.au or xxx.au?
Re: event ID 3018 on the Exhange
Did you say your DNS is fine, is this an internal DNS server or a DNS server open to the public internet? For public users to see it, it has to be on a publicly available DNS server such as an ISP’s DNS server…
Re: sysprep locking up the hardware install
You should set ComputerName=* and always use Mini-setup to allow Sysprep to prepare the hard disk.
Ideally you should create a Sysprep folder in C: with just sysprep.exe, sysprep.ini and the setupcl.exe command as well in it and optionally an i386 folder with 3rd party drivers if necessary. You should NOT delete the sysprep folder or the files in it as they are required when restarting as sysprep itself will do that.
Re: can’t install ssl vpn on vista home premium
Try disabling UAC (User Account Control) so that the installer can install without being confounded by Vista’s UAC system. See the User Accounts control panel.December 21, 2007 at 12:11 pm in reply to: Windows Server 2003 management tools – active directory issue #312652
Re: Windows Server 2003 management tools – active directory issue
I would wait for the Admin tools that come with Windows 2008 server or downloadable from MS site sometime in 2008 otherwise stick with the 2003 tools for now…
Re: Restoring System state
It depends on how different the hardware is. I have tried restoring System State and sometimes even if the HD controller is the same but the motherboard is substantially different then all you get is BSOD screens or Unrecognised boot device as such and no amount of repair installs or driver fixes seems to fix it. :(
Best doing on the same or very closely matched hardware otherwise it will likely to fail!
Re: WM5.1 incompatible with Vista any alternative
You may have to migrate to Windows Office Live Communications Server 2007 to make use of Windows Live and Windows Vista. Otherwise, I suggest sticking to Windows XP for work.
