The SRV record is a Domain Name System (DNS) resource record that is used to identify computers that host specific services. SRV resource records are used to locate domain controllers for Active Directory. To verify SRV locator resource records for a domain controller, use one of the following methods.

Reset Password Windows Server 2008, 2008R2

As the popular use of Windows Server 2008, large amount of trivial things come up with us each minute, the occasion that we reset password Windows Server 2008 becomes also common. Therefore, Windows Server 2008 password reset is the necessary technique for us now!

Windows Server 2008 is one of Microsoft Windows Server serials of operating systems. Besides Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 is the latest and more secured versions from Microsoft. Windows Server 2008 has newly added many new functional features included that system administrators of small and large companies will enjoy.

Most of us use Windows 2008 Server as a workstation. That means a group of computers and devices on a network that are controlled as a unit with common rules and procedures. And the host manages these computers through its admin account and password.

If you forgot windows server 2008 password of local admin, I think it is easy for you to recover the password. But what if you forgot windows domain password? Things will get trickier and all of the computers in the domain paralyze. These passwords also called AD password. Before solving your password problem, you need to know what Active Directory Domain Controller is.

What is Active Directory Domain Controller?
A domain controller is a server that is running a version of the Windows Server operating system and has Active Directory Domain Services installed.

When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new forest, a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing Active Directory Domain Controller(AD DC).

There are differences between Domain and local. A Windows Server domain is a logical group of computers running versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system that share a central directory database. A user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.

A Domain Controller allows password authentication throughout a network. What this means is that your password is checked on the central server no matter which machine you log in from. A Domain Controller can also control access to files and directories which can be setup so users have access to all their files no matter which machine they log in from. This also makes adding and removing users among other things much easier as all that is required is a change on the Domain Controller itself rather than every machine on a network.

If you need reset domain administrator password (also called AD password), it will be a tricky thing. However, Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery can allow you to reset password Windows Server 2008 domain.

Steps for Windows Server 2008 password reset domain:
Step1. Google Windows Password Recovery Corporation, download and install in any available computer.
Step2. Create a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. (A blank CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive is needed)
Step3. BIOS set. Boot computer from the created CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and set BIOS setup.
Step4. Reset Windows server 2008 or 2008R2 password to Re123456.

How to Reset AD Password for Windows Server 2000, 2003 and 2008?

Have you ever forgotten Active Directory (AD) password? Do you know how to reset AD password? Is there any Windows password reset software to do AD password reset? If not, what to do to reset AD password? Before answering these questions and do AD password reset, you need to what is active directory, Windows domain and domain controller.
What is Active Directory?Active Directory is used by system administrators to store information about users, assign security policies, and deploy software. It was released first with Windows 2000 Server edition and refined further in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and was renamed Active Directory Domain Services. AD components include such domains, domain controllers, trust relationships, forests, organizational units, etc. What is a domain controller?
According to Wiki, a domain controller is a server that responds to security authentication requests (logging in, checking permissions, etc.) within the Windows Server domain. The domain controllers in your network are the centerpiece of your Active Directory service. It stores user account information, authenticates users and enforces security policy for a Windows domain. When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing AD DS.
What is a Domain?A domain is a concept introduced in Windows NT whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.
The domain concept not only allows a user to have access to resources that may be on different servers, but it also allows one domain to be given access to another domain in a trust relationship. In this arrangement, the user need only log in to the first domain to also have access to the second domain's resources as well.
So it is hard to say if there any windows password recovery software can reset AD password. Windows password recovery software like Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise can allow you to reset domain administrator password on Active directory for Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
Steps to reset domain administrator password
  • Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise in any available computer.
  • Step 2: Run the software and insert a USB flash drive to computer.
  • Step 3: Select Domain Administrator and target USB drive, and then click the Burn button to start burning an ISO image file to the USB flash drive.
  • Step 4: Click ok when burning process is completed.
  • Step 5: Insert the burned USB flash drive to your locked computer and set the computer to boot from USB.
  • Step 6: Choose the way to reset AD password.
  • 2 options for you to reset domain password
  • 0b60bd0.jpg
  • Option 1: Reset the default domain administrator password to Pa123456
  • Option 2: Reset AD password by creating a specified domain administrator account.
  • Step 7: Click YES to continue and click Ok when the domain password has been successfully reset.
Now you can log on your domain with the user name of administrator and password of 'Pa123456' if you select option 1. If you select option 2, you can log on domain with the username of 'passkiller' and password of 'Pa123456'.

What is the acitiv dirctry

Dear , friend

Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system

Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.

How to configure samba server

Hi satveergaur

Follow these instruction to configure samba server

To configure Samba using a graphical interface, use the Samba Server Configuration Tool.

The Samba Server Configuration Tool is a graphical interface for managing Samba shares, users, and basic server settings. It modifies the configuration files in the /etc/samba/ directory. Any changes to these files not made using the application are preserved.

To use this application, you must be running the X Window System, have root privileges, and have the redhat-config-samba RPM package installed. To start the Samba Server Configuration Tool from the desktop, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings => Server Settings => Samba or type the command redhat-config-samba at a shell prompt (for example, in an XTerm or a GNOME terminal).

 Samba Server Configuration Tool

The Samba Server Configuration Tool does not display shared printers or the default stanza that allows users to view their own home directories on the Samba server.

 Configuring Server Settings

The first step in configuring a Samba server is to configure the basic settings for the server and a few security options. After starting the application, select Preferences => Server Settings from the pulldown menu. The Basic tab is displayed as shown in Figure 24-2.

 Configuring Basic Server Settings

On the Basic tab, specify which workgroup the computer should be in as well as a brief description of the computer. They correspond to the workgroup and server string options in smb.conf.

 Configuring Security Server Settings

The Security tab contains the following options:

Authentication Mode — This corresponds to the security option. Select one of the following types of authentication.

ADS — The Samba server acts as a domain member in an Active Directory Domain (ADS) realm. For this option, Kerberos must be installed and configured on the server, and Samba must become a member of the ADS realm using the net utility, which is part of the samba-client package. Refer to the net man page for details. This option does not configure Samba to be an ADS Controller.

Domain — The Samba server relies on a Windows NT Primary or Backup Domain Controller to verify the user. The server passes the username and password to the Controller and waits for it to return. Specify the NetBIOS name of the Primary or Backup Domain Controller in the Authentication Server field.

The Encrypted Passwords option must be set to Yes if this is selected.

Server — The Samba server tries to verify the username and password combination by passing them to another Samba server. If it can not, the server tries to verify using the user authentication mode. Specify the NetBIOS name of the other Samba server in the Authentication Server field.

Share — Samba users do not have to enter a username and password combination on a per Samba server basis. They are not prompted for a username and password until they try to connect to a specific shared directory from a Samba server.

User — (Default) Samba users must provide a valid username and password on a per Samba server basis. Select this option if you want the Windows Username option to work. Refer to Section Managing Samba Users for details.

Encrypt Passwords — This option must be enabled if the clients are connecting from a Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3, or other more recent versions of Microsoft Windows. The passwords are transfered between the server and the client in an encrypted format instead of in as a plain-text word that can be intercepted. This corresponds to the encrypted passwords option. Refer to Section 24.2.3 Encrypted Passwords for more information about encrypted Samba passwords.

Guest Account — When users or guest users log into a Samba server, they must be mapped to a valid user on the server. Select one of the existing usernames on the system to be the guest Samba account. When guests logs in to the Samba server, they have the same privileges as this user. This corresponds to the guest account option.

After clicking OK, the changes are written to the configuration file and the daemon is restart; thus, the changes take effect immediately.

 Managing Samba Users

The Samba Server Configuration Tool requires that an existing user account be active on the system acting as the Samba server before a Samba user can be added. The Samba user is associated with the existing user account.

To add a Samba user, select Preferences => Samba Users from the pulldown menu, and click the Add User button. On the Create New Samba User window select a Unix Username from the list of existing users on the local system.

If the user has a different username on a Windows machine and will be logging into the Samba server from the Windows machine, specify that Windows username in the Windows Username field. The Authentication Mode on the Security tab of the Server Settings preferences must be set to User for this option to work.

Also configure a Samba Password for the Samba User and confirm the Samba Password by typing it again. Even if you select to use encrypted passwords for Samba, it is recommended that the Samba passwords for all users are different from their system passwords.

To edit an existing user, select the user from the list, and click Edit User. To delete an existing Samba user, select the user, and click the Delete User button. Deleting a Samba user does not delete the associated system user account.

The users are modified immediately after clicking the OK button.

Starting and Stopping the Server

On the server that is sharing directories via Samba, the smb service must be running.

View the status of the Samba daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb status

Start the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb start

Stop the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb stop

To start the smb service at boot time, use the command: /sbin/chkconfig --level 345 smb on

Greetings, I've been using the Intel Entry Storage System SS4000-E as a simple backup network drive for the last few years. It showed up as Drive Z: on all of my Windows machines and I just copied other drives/folders onto it as needed. It's far from the full capability of this device but it's suited my purposes. Recently, I decided to upgrade the drives and increase the total storage space from 2 TB (4 500 GB drives, Raid 0) to 6 TB (4 1.5 TB drives). The software doesn't allow me to make one 6 TB drive, so I made three (X:, Y:, and Z:), with sizes ranging from 1.49 TB to 1.99 TB, accessible as \storage\public3, \storage\public2, and \storage\public1 respectively. I also created the required shared folders using the minimum (200 MB) for both so I could have as much room as possible for large shared partitions. I also took the opportunity to upgrade the firmware to version 1.4, build 709, since I was installing new drives. I backed up some data to the Z: drive (\storage\public1) and filled about 1.5 TB. Then I started copying folders from another system to Y: drive (around 900 GB in all). Everything seemed to be going well until I looked in on the copy after around 800 GB had transferred. Files were being copied *extremely* slowly, like 100 MB in 10 minutes! I aborted the transfer and ran a test to eliminate network issues as the problem. I tried copying a 100 MB file from Y: drive to Y: drive. It took around 10 minutes, as above. I tried the same thing on Z: drive and it was almost instant. Something was somehow causing that part of the network drive to move at a snail's pace. I then accessed the management screen via a browser and got a message saying that one or more drives had either failed or been changed (Disk Change Notification - raid_disks_changedF.cgi). Two tables that show all four disks - serial numbers and capacities - are shown, one table being previous configuration and the second being current configuration. Both tables are completely identical. Clicking on "Scan" or "Continue" resulted in the same message, so I clicked on "shut down" and tried to access the network drive after it rebooted. I had no problem getting into the Z: drive part of it but both X: and Y: weren't being seen at all anymore. I'm aware of the fragility of a Raid 0 and wonder if it could be so easily disrupted during a large transfer such that I face the possibility of initializing all four drives and starting over. I'm at a loss as to what could be going wrong here or how to fix it. I really just want a simple means of copying lots of data over from various networked machines without any additional software. This system worked fine before. What could have happened? Thanks for any help. Bob
