Re: Server2003 AD problem
Go to active directory - users and computers, set a home folder in the profile tab of the users options,
also if you go into the gpo manager (group policy object) and i think the option of folder redirection is under windows - administrative templates
to open the gpo go start -> run -> mmc
file -> add/remove snap-in and select the gpo editor you can set this to enforce, if you want to do specific users you will have to create a new security group and add the users into it, then select the options that you want them to have, you can even restrict specific operations when they are logged on from there.

Cause The issue occurs when you configure UPM to exclude the Desktop folder. To access the Exclusion list - directories in your Active Directory (AD) policy, follow the given path:
Go to Active Directory group policies.
Select Citrix from Administrative Templates available in Computer Configuration.
Select Profile Management.
Select File System to access Exclusion list - Directories.
the user logs on to the server, the profile is created with the
information stored on the UPM share. Because the Desktop folder is
excluded, the user profile is built without it. Word 2007 or 2010
requires this folder to work properly. The issue can
be reproduced using local profiles with no UPM, if you manually delete
the desktop folder from the user profile and then start the published
Word. Resolution Remove the exclusion of the desktop folder.
Have you ever forgotten Active Directory (AD) password? Do you know how toreset AD password? Is there any Windows password reset software to doAD 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 Directoryis 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, adomain controlleris 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 domainis 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 canreset AD password. Windows password recovery software likeWindows Password Unlocker Enterprisecan allow you to reset domain administrator password on Active directory for Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
Steps to reset domain administrator password
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 theBurnbutton to start burning an ISO image file to the USB flash drive.
Step 4:Clickokwhen 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 toreset AD password.
2 options for you to reset domain password
Option 1:Reset the default domain administrator password to Pa123456
Option 2:Reset AD passwordby creating a specified domain administrator account.
Step 7:ClickYESto continue and clickOkwhen 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'.
You can do it fairly easily but your brother will know his account has been broken into.
Not that this will only work if your account is admin Else you're wasting your time. Now go to control panel and put it in classic view where all the settings can be accessed via individual icons. Click on the User Accounts and it is pretty straight forward from there.
It can also be accessed by clicking on your profile photo you can see when you press Win logo key.
Just click on the Manage another account from the sidebar, pick your brother's account and remove his password.
Next log out and you can log in to your brother's account. Again, he may not find it amusing so proceed at your own risk!
This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.
There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.
1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.
2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders
3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.
It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.
This sounds a lot like something has taken over administrative rights to your computer, and limiting your access to your own folders. Try running Malwarebytes anti-malware to see if you have a trojan, rootkit or malware on your PC then try this program called unlocker1.8.7 to see if it will unlock the folder and give you permission to open it.
My Dear Dolly, Do you know how time consuming this task is? Well, as it is, I haven’t got anything exiting to right now, so what the heck. Log in to your Domain Controller as administrator. Click Start -> Run and type ntbackup Click the Advanced Mode link Click Backup Wizard Click Next Make sure Back up everything on this computer is selected and click Next You can backup to a file, you place it wherever you want, just make sure you name it Friday and click Next. Click Advanced. Make sure Normal is selected as type of backup and click Next. Check the box Verify data after backup and click Next (You will most likely have errors when the backup is completed and verified. This is because System State data is changed all the time. If there are too many errors, there might be problems with the file you are using to back up data.) Click Replace the existing backups and click Next. Click Later and in the Job Name box type Friday Nights, click Set Schedule. In Schedule Task select Weekly and as Start time 08:00 PM (or whenever you want the backup to be scheduled). Make sure it’s set to run every 1 week and on Fridays. Click OK. You will be prompted to run the task as a user. Use a user with privileges to backup data. Click Next Click Finish.
Hi Dolly You are always welcome :-) The add/create user process is as follows; - first you log on to the PDC as Administrator and add a user. Then log off the PDC and log on to the File/Print server and from Home directory add a new folder for the user making sure the folder is shared and the new user has authority granted. It’s pretty late here in Denmark, so I´ll bee of to bed, and won´t be online again within the next 8 - 10 hours. Regards Teis Don´t forget to vote before you leave :-)
Hello Dolly, and welcome to FixYa. As I´m not sure if you want to make a folder for a Domain user or a Local user, so I´ll give you both. Domain user: Start -> Programs ->Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computers. In the console tree, click Users. In the Details pane, right-click the user account, and then click Properties. In the Properties dialog box, click Profile. Under the Home folder, type the folder information. To do this, follow these steps: To assign a home folder on a network server, click Connect, and then specify a drive letter. In the To box, type a path. This path can be any one of the following types: Network path, for example: \\server\users\test You can substitute username for the last subfolder in the path, for example: \\server\users\username NOTE: server is the name of the file server housing the home folders, and users are the shared folder. Click OK.
- next in the next comment:
if you are using AD.
do the following:
open AD, select the user, right click on the user and select porperties.
click on the Profile tab, put in the location where you want the file to g to.
you can alway created a roaming porfile and direct the home folder to the server.
this is only effective if the user login to the network. if not, then the document will be on the local machine.
