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.

    The Backup Wizard should close and you should be back in the Backup Utility. You can now verify that the backup is scheduled by clicking on the Schedule Jobs tab.



    If you want to edit the backup, you can do it from here.

    Just click the backup symbol on the day you want to edit.



    Click the Welcome tab and start the Backup Wizard again.

    Click Next.

    Select Backup selected files, drives or network data and click Next.



    Expand My Computer in the left pane and select all drives (in my case C: and D:) and click Next.

    Name it Monday and click Next

    Click Advanced

    Select Incremental as type of backup and click Next

    Check the box Verify data after backup and click Next

    Click Replace the existing backups and click Next

    Click Later and in the Job Name box type Monday Nights, click Set Schedule

    In Scheduled Task select Weekly and as Start time 11:00 PM (or whenever you want the backup to be scheduled). Make sure it’s set to run every 1 week and on Mondays.

    Click Advanced and set the Start Date the same day as when the full backup will run. In my case that is January 03, 2003, so that is the start date I choose. Click OK, 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.



    Use the steps above to create incremental backups for the other five days of week.

    Of course all this can be done by writing a script, but I’m not very good at that.

    Remember that if you followed the steps above, you will only save the backup files for a week.

    This is probably not what you want, and you have to schedule a script to move the files every week.



    You should read the log files so that you are sure the backup was successful.

    You do this be looking in Event Viewer for error messages, and you can also read a complete report by clicking Report on the Tools menu.

    If you want to log more or less, take a look in the Options on the Tools menu, and click on the Backup Log tab.



    ---------------------------------------



    Now, I suppose you want to restore a file or document one day; then this is what you do:





    Open the Backup Utility and click the Advanced Mode link.

    Click Restore Wizard.

    Click Next.

    Expand Tuesday.bkf, find the file you want to restore and check the box in front of the file. In my case it is 0005.txt in F:\sql.





    Click Next

    Click Advanced

    Select Single Folder.

    This is because I am only restoring one file, and I don’t want to restore it to the original location.

    If I choose Alternate Location it will keep the folder structure (in my case it will create the folder sql).

    Usually you will use Alternate Location when restoring files.



    In Folder Name type where you want to restore the file (in my case c:\restore) and click Next.

    Select Leave existing files and click Next.

    Make sure Restore security settings and Preserve existing volume mount points are selected and click Next.

    Click Finish.

    You use the same process to restore System State data.

    Just remember that if you are restoring the System State data on a Domain Controller you must start the computer in Directory Services Restore Mode, which you access be pressing F8 when the computer is starting.

    And if you want to perform an Authoritative restore, remember to run ntdsutil before restarting the computer. You find more info about the ntdsutil by typing ntdsutil /? in a command prompt.



    Take care

Server script era


Basically the server thinks you are cheating. Stop laying down claymores and try not using them every round. Or using a bunch of ballistic knives and not picking them up! I'm guessing you're doing the claymore stock up trick. Don't do it!!! I use to do that too, just in case I ran out of ammo, I've got an enormous amount of claymores to use later on. But every time I'd hit round 25-27, me and my teammates would get kicked. The servers think that you're glitching or cheating and boots everyone from the game. Don't do it, and you should be fine. I'm guessing there was a patch to stop players from exploiting the loop hole.

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

Windows Server2003


Hej again,
Start the Server by using Last Known Good Configuration like this:
Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
Click Restart, and then click OK.
When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press the F8 key.
Use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER


You have now bypassed the last installed driver, therefore you need not do anything more.
If – you need to installed this printer on the Server (in order to share it on the network) use an older driver (PCL5), - ore install the driver on a computer on line at all time and share it here, ex. your own admin computer.
 
The driver I´d recommend is to be found here:
Plz, let me know if I´m right.

WinNT PDC


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.

We have a Windows 2003 Server enterprise edition SP2 & this is our inblr200 (file server of India) located at (IDC) reliance data center. The server hangs up frequently and it doesn?t give access to anyone...


Hi m8,

This sound like a memory problem, if you have dual memory blocks, then try to swoop them around, this might "move" the problem.
IF, this works, you know what to do - new memory block :-)

Delete folder


Hi muraripcs,
 
Logon as Administrator and delete the protected folder.
 
You logon as Administrator like this:
Open the command prompt with Administrative privileges by opening the Start Menu, and typing cmd in the search box, and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter
Type the following in the command prompt:
net user administrator /active:yes
Press Enter
Restart your computer and logon as Administrator.
Note: You might want to set a password for the administrator’s account for at least a little protection.
Warning: Running as Administrator in Windows Vista bypasses all security and is NOT recommended. 
If you decide to use the Administrator account don’t complain when you start having problems :-).

Teis

Hi...........


Well there is more than one or two answers 4 that.
you should first check if you are at simple recovery mode. If not (now this will sound strange) right click the database, click tasks/backup and make a LOG backup.
Now right click databases and click Restore Database.
You should choose a new database name (for restore practice) .
You will probably have your last backups at the bottom of the screen...if not click add and choose you latest data backup.
click the log backup and the data backup should be checked , too. on options tab make sure the database is left ready to use.
