Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Server 2003 & client configuration

Some days before I have done a job on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise edition & Client XP. It is departmental food court. In the office room of the restaurant have a system which will be Server system and main domain. There was another 8 system in every department of food with printer for billing.I

Windows Server 2003 includes a mission critical Windows Server operating system, such as security, reliability, availability, and scalability.

You have to install DNS server for DC without DNS the client computers wouldn't know which one is DC.You can host DNS on a different server than DC.

Before Starting the DC installation process you need to make sure the following points


1)You have installed Basic windows server 2003 installation

2)Make sure you have assigned a static ip address to your server

Now start DC and DNS Setup process
Domain Controller Active Directory is a huge topic in itself. While DCPROMO is easy to run, planning of both the physical and the logical structure is the key to a trouble free active directory.

Domain controllers do not have to be your most powerful machines, however they must be reliable and always available to answer logon requests.
DNS (Domain Name System) Role

Once DNS is setup, it runs itself thanks to the new dynamic component hence DDNS. TCP/IP knowledge plus understanding of how DNS works is essential when troubleshooting connectivity problems.

DNS enables client machines to resolve servers IP addresses. Once the client finds the server, Active Directory uses LDAP to locate services like Kerberos, Global Catalog that clients request.
Print Server Role

In my experience there is a contrast between the software settings which are easy to configure and the hardware which constantly need for attention e.g. paper jam, 'out of toner'. Check list for print server:


Printer Priority

Network Printers


Client Configuration :- After Installation of Windows Xp give the IP Add on TCP/IP of IPV4.If you want to manually configure DNS server addresses, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then type the preferred DNS server and alternate DNS server IP addresses in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes. After all job try to ping each other. I'm trying this and it also pinging. Files and data also can be shared through it.

Try to use the Driver for Windows 2003.
It has a Matrox VGA as I know. If you know which Matrox series you have, then Browse here for the Drives: Matrox Graphics Support. Make sure that you choose the Exact Driver software which suites the System.
Note: Not every product has the Driver Software for Windows XP.
