I really need help with an OCS Inventory install on a Server 2003 machine
Like the subject says, I have no idea what I am doing. The OCS Website cannot write to the cache and template_c folder. I have them shared for everyone. Also, I have installed the client on two machines but I can see niether of them on the server interface. Please help!

Go the website of HP, chose for the support and drivers - lookout for drivers and software - enter your product name i.e HP Proliant ML350 5G Server and click on search. You will get the list, select your product. Select the operating system you are using on your server - then choose the driver type - click suitable, from the list of drivers and download it.
I just checked the specs and it supports Windows Server 2003 so it must be possible. They probably did not make a setup wizard for it so you will have to do it the "old fashioned" way. Load the Windows Server 2003 disk in the CD/DVD drive and boot to it as you would any Windows install. If it reaches the screen where it displays the hard disk(s) you are good to go. While the installation is running go to Acer's website on another computer and download the 2003 drivers to a USB drive. When the installation completes, install the 2003 drivers and you are ready to customize it to your needs. If it doesn't find the hard disks, you probably purchased the optional PCIe 4-port SAS RAID card and Windows 2003 doesn't have a built-in driver for it. You will need to press F6 after Windows install starts so it will prompt you later for a driver for your disk controller. This will allow you to manually install the driver which you should be able to find on Acer's website. (F6 Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F6_disk) I hope this helps!
Before installing a Windoze server (no matter what flavour) you always need to verify the compatibility (drivers) with the machine's hardware... A Windoze XP driver will rarely work for a server environment... Micro$oft built all servers version to run in server machine type... further more you also need to verify softwar compatibility as well... as not all workstation software is compatible with server environments... and your machine advertises that it is a WORKSTATION NOT A SERVER...
I am not very sure, why you are assuming to install windows 2003 because windows 2003 is server and i really dont recomment to install it in Laptop.
and you have not mentioned what driver you want to install on it. usually, sound driver does not come along with this OS becasue it's for server purpose not for clint so.
and if you any want to install this driver you can download from your manufacturer website.
and if you have recovery disk you can install from there manually too.
i could only locate Vista and XP drivers but the dell website has a comprehensive list of all the drivers available , i'm thinking that the XP drivers should work
heres the link , so look there and download and install them one by one until it works, thats how i would go about it , pretty standard but unfortunately they don't make Server 2003 Specific Drivers , also try updating using Windows Update and see if that works.
First things First!
1) you always going to have problems with exchange servers, or migrations. ** systems are not perfects**
2) You can migrate the emails to the new server, but, if only are in the correct version of Exchange 2003.
3) if backup is damage or fail, you lost everything.
4) try to reinstall the Server, and all utilites, is better, I know takes more time, but is better because you created yourself.
I suggest you to install from scratch!
I think you mean email *facilities* although your version may be more accurate :-)))
You can't just download it - you have to buy it. If you want it for a relatively small organisation it is much cheaper to buy SBS 2003 which includes both Server 2003 and Exchange as well as other useful things. It's also relatively straightforward to install & get working although I highly recommend reading one of the many guide books that are available first.
If you really need to install them separately and have not set Exchange up before (or been on a course on how to do it) you are likely to have serious problems getting it working. It's complex, requires quite a bit of specialist knowledge and there are many pitfalls.
