    in reply to: "Run these programs at user logon" GP #292255

    Re: "Run these programs at user logon" GP

    For that you could use something like

    start “title” “%yourcommand or app%” && logoff

    What this does is run the logoff command after the initial start value has been processed. This also means that your batch file remains active as long as your application is.

    Maybe I’ll come up with something else(better) later.

    in reply to: DNS & MX record trouble #292254

    Re: DNS & MX record trouble

    Maybe it is just me but after the first alinea I stopped reading.

    Try to clarify your question, I cant make heads or Tails from this, you sound like our local helpdesk(they try but they never give me the info I need either).

    Things like “where” did the blacklisting occur are important, we are not your nework administrators so we do not know your current configuration. Also my ball crystal ball has seemed to stop working due to some abuse from my side.. :smile:

    in reply to: One way replication occuring between domain controllers #292253

    Re: One way replication occuring between domain controllers

    Wild guess here, but how is your dns set up ?

    Can both machines resolve each other ? If they can, is there anything other than a network switch connected between these servers ?

    in addition how are your FSMO-roles divided ?

    in reply to: open relay exchange 2003 #292252

    Re: open relay exchange 2003

    Hmm yes, stating the obvious you have configured an open relay mail server.

    There are truly countless articles on how to configure your mail server correctly. Use :google: for your answers. (likely this forum has a lot of those too)

    Also since exchange on default is NOT an open-relay you have made configuration changes which you have not told us about, and most likely made a slight config error. Perhaps you should also run the SBS internet and mail (?or something?) wizard so your mailserver is configured for you.

    This is also very much recommended on a SBS-server.

    Re: Session Broker with double logins

    Anyone got some helpful thoughts?

    I’ve checked my configuration again, maybe I’m doing something wrong?

    All my dns entries point to the session broker, All TS-servers are in the correct local group. And they are members of the Farm.

    Re: Session Broker with double logins

    Alright the problem with having to login twice has returned. I deinstalled NLB and am using dns to point to the session broker right now. I’ve still got this lame problem… .

    I dont know what I’m doing wrong here…

    Hope someone could help figure it out.

    Re: Exchange stops every 7th day

    Like I said it’s a hunch, but since I’m not familiar with your configuration this is the best I can do

    Does your antivirus check the mailstores as well ?(If you have no idea, go to the server and check the configuration options. It should say vsapi or something a little mre clear.)

    Dont mind me saying, but isn’t that really old antivirus. I believe the latest version is 10 or so..

    there is a “new” sysprep for xp sp3.
    I believe that’s the newest, it was recommended to use the updated sysprep for XP sp3 even though it should be OS independent.

    in reply to: Session Broker with double logins #292242

    Re: Session Broker with double logins

    Looks like I got it working yesterday.

    It was actually pretty simple. Then again anything is quite simple once you’ve figured it out.

    It seems I had put the domain name in the connection properties(on the terminal-server properties). Somehow this made it forget all my login data and made me login a second time.

    The project hasnt been finished yet.

    Also it is now working with NLB. So this is a configuration that can work correctly.

    Tx for all the help!

    in reply to: Public Folder Hierarchy missing from management tools #292240

    Re: Public Folder Hierarchy missing from management tools

    It’s just missing from the management tool correct ?
    Maybe reinstalling those wold help, this should not disrupt mailservices.

    Also as a temporary workaround you could start using powershell. With Exchange snapins it’s actually not that hard to use.. takes a bit of practice though.

    Re: Exchange stops every 7th day

    I understand you’re new to exchange. However Is there anything you have found out. Could you also tell us what has been tried ?

    There should at the very least be some warning event or erro in the event log about a service stopping. If there isnt, just a hunch are you using an Antivirus which also does VSAPI or rather scanning on the system store ?

    in reply to: Session Broker with double logins #292237

    Re: Session Broker with double logins

    I’m not mixing anything up. I know NLB is load balancing and so is Session Broker.

    Are you suggesting this cannot work?, since MS put their own manual online describing my exact solution. I was thinking this would be a great way of load balancing especially since there will be more TS servers on the way. Wont be more than 16 or so I know the limit is around there somewhere..

    The NLB is supposed to make sure not all primary logins come at one server. It’s supposed to be LOAD balancing where the first login takes place. Now I could have used DNS Round Robin for this, however if one server happens to be down. Some of my users will be redirected to a non existing server.

    Could someone plz offer some insight on this ?

    Sidenote:

    CAPITALS ACTUALLY SOUND LIKE SCREAMING… So please dont use them !! :-D

    Re: Session Broker with double logins

    Thank you for responding,

    What I think is the process of load balance: NLB does pick up and it directs me to either terminal server. That server(doesnt matter which) makes me login, and then it talks to Session Broker to see whether I’ve already got a session on a server or which server has the least load.

    NLB does not interfere here. I excluded NLB being the culprit by disabling one server in the NLB console and thus forcing me to go to one server for login. while having a session on the other server. It still redirects me to the right server so that works, except my credentials seem to get lost here, cause I just get a new login screen. When I login the second time I get my previous session.

    Having googled this, the problem seems to occur with DNS round robin implementations as well..

    in reply to: Global catalogs #292235

    Re: Global catalogs

    Yes, maybe I should elaborate

    net view |find /i “\” > c:workstations.txt
    use the above command to create a workstations.txt file containing only computernames on your local network. (and that are online)

    Next:
    For %%i in (c:workstations.txt) do (psexec %%i %logonserver% etc)

    What this does is for every line in your workstations.txt file it runs a command, the command is right after “do”.
    You can get the psexec.exe from the microsoft website.(should be listed as sysinternal tool)

    Next is a complete script actually. didnt test it but you should be alright with this.

    For %%i in (c:workstations.txt) do (
    echo. >> textfile.txt
    psexec %%i hostname >> textfile.txt
    psexec %%i %logonserver% >> textfile.txt
    echo. >> textfile.txt
    echo. >> textfile.txt
    )

    in reply to: script to collect PC info (SWs,Drivers,OS..) #292234

    Re: script to collect PC info (SWs,Drivers,OS..)

    vonPryz has a good point.
    I really suck at WMI, so I’d have to look up everything on Technet.

    But you dont need VBscript to do that.
    I was kind of trying to keep it simple.

    Use wmic /? for a full commandline,

    If you like vbscript better use that.
    you can also user powershell

    example for a wmi command, this queries a logical disk:
    WMIC logicaldisk WHERE drivetype=3 GET name,freespace,SystemName,FileSystem,Size,VolumeSerialNumber

    add (/Node: “computername”) to do this on a different computer.

    so looking at my previous post; wmi command would be replaced by
    wmic /node:%%i

    Look here for some commands to get you started
    http://support.microsoft.com/servicedesks/webcasts/wc072402/listofsampleusage.asp

    technet also as a full database with explanations of WMI commands.

    in reply to: script to collect PC info (SWs,Drivers,OS..) #292233

    Re: script to collect PC info (SWs,Drivers,OS..)

    I would try using WMI script.
    The commands are really not that hard, just time consuming to implement.

    Put it in a batch script and to do these things remotely you could use psexec.

    net view | find /i “\” >hosts.txt
    for /i %%i in (hosts.txt) do (
    psexec %%i hostname
    wmi command
    wmi command
    )

    something like the above would work, could take a few hours to create.

    in reply to: Windows 2008 BSOD and reboot #292232

    Re: Windows 2008 BSOD and reboot

    Sounds a lot like NX (no execute).

    Pehaps a recently installed drive ?

    You could try setting the NX bios option to off so you might be able to boot.
    This option however can have variable names.

    Just a hunch though. I would appreciate it if you could state what you have tried yourself already.

    Re: Outlook 2003 crashing

    BEX and the dll file that is being referenced seem interesting.

    Possible cause could be BEX (something like nx i believe)
    the dll could have to do with IPV6/DHCP

    Other than that I would recommend some troubleshooting on your side..

    Re: Global catalogs

    I think in the middle of the day see how many people are authenticated to which server would suffice.

    I would use something along the lines as:
    (this is just an example)

    net view |find /i “\” > c:workstations.txt
    next use a script that asks all of the workstations to wich server they logged on(use PSexec for example)

    For %%i in (c:workstations.txt) do (psexec %%i %logonserver% etc)

    If you need more help with this please let me know.
