Windows 2003 Logon script

We have 10 PC's in our organization that are connected to a new Windows 2003 Server. What we want to be able to do is have all the seperate username logins but we want the ''My Documents'' folder for each computer to always go to their own ''My Documents'' location

Example: Jane logs in on PC0001. It always has \\servername\sharedfolder\PC0001\My Documents as the location.

Example: Jane logs in on PC0002. It always has \\servername\sharedfolder\PC0002\My Documents as the location.

So, as you can see it doesn't matter who logs in .. but where that user logs in is the key

Create a user folder on the server.
create each login folder "PC0001","pc0002", etc............
set the user rights by right click on the folder and select properties. (you need all users name. otherwise, one of more people will not have their file on the server.
now, you need all fo the users that will be using that particular PC login, in order to create the user profile. unless you have one generic login.
right click on "my document" on each of the local machine.
redirect the path under the general tab. to where you wan the files to go to.
that will place the file where you want them to be. like you say it is machine direct, not user direct. i you want user direct, in another words, you want the user files to go to the server regardless where the user is, then you need a Domain Controller and Active Directory setup.

How to write script in 2003 domaincontroller


lease follow steps to resolve your issue

First, open "Active Directory Users and Computers" on the domain controller

Now right click on the user you want to have the logon script and select the properties menu.
A properties dialog like the one shown below will appear. Select the ‘Profile’ Tab

Here is the confusing part. If I just put any old batch file name in the logon script field, where does windows try to find it from?
Lets find out. First, type in this field ‘logon.bat’
Click OK.
Now, we need to find the folder where the server loads logon scripts. It follows this format:
\\(SERVERNAME)\sysvol\(DOMAIN NAME)\scripts
So, if my server was named DCServer1, and my domain was intelliadmin.com, we would browse to this path:
\\DCServer1\sysvol\intelliadmin.com\scripts

Now that we know where to put it, creating the script is easy. Just open up notepad, and write your batch file. For our test batch file we will put in a line that loads our profile generator for Microsoft Outlook XP

We are done with the script, so we save the text file as:
\\DCServer1\sysvol\intelliadmin.com\scripts\logon.bat
Now, the next time this user logs in, they will load the login script.
hope it can resolved your issue
thanks

Windows Data base server


Hi
I did not understand fully why you set the service to manul?
If you must have it manual then you have to find some workaaround solution .
there are two slutions i can think of :
1. create script that run as scheduale task every x minutes the script will check if oracle instance is down and if is down and no backup running at the moment will restart it .
2. whenever instance is down the schedule task that check if instance is up or not will send you some kind of alert (email, SMS) and you will decide if you want to bring the db back up .

hope it helps
Good Luck

Cannot find License Server


1. TS and TS licensing server are installed in the same 2003 server. The lsview doesn’t list any TS licensing server.
2. If you open the Terminal Server Licensing, it shows “Finding servers… Connecting to \\apps\chicagotech.net. It never finds the apps server. There is not apps server in the network (They might remove this server from the network). After finishing the finding, there are two activated licensing servers listed, one is Windows 2000 server as 2000 TS licensing server and another one is Windows 2003 (also TS) as 2003 TS Licensing server.
3. The 2003 TS Licensing shows they are using Temporary License.
4. We modified the 2003 TS registry to point Licenseserver to itself (TS and TS license are the same server). That fixes the logon screen slow showing issue but not TS licensing issue.
