Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC

3 Answers

Conversions of Windows 2000 to 2003 messed up my office network

I'm currently using Windows 2000 OS in my office network with around 13 computers networked by a switcher. I decided to upgrade my OS to Window 2003 but when I checked my network, the other computers can see the upgraded computer but the upgraded computer couldn't see the other computer. What should I do? Do I need to upgrade the other computers 1st before they can see each other or do I need to re-configure the network again? Kindly advise.

    your server upgraded to windows server 2003 from 2000. Do you have the 2003 set in mixed mode to see servers that are not windows 2003?

    It depends on how your network was configured with Windows 2000 and how you ran the upgrade to Windows 2003. Chances are there's an issue with DNS/Active Directory.

    A good tool to consider in the future for migrations is the swing migration or if you're just doing upgrades for hardware, you can consider using a software package from Acronis.

    One cannot just install Windows Server 2003 and expect it to work automatically, one needs to take the time to learn about it and how to configure it. Try these tutorials:

    What edition are you using?

    Are you using a workgroup or a domain in the office? You may just need to add all of the computers into the active directory.

You should probably reconfig your network. If that fails then you might need expert help from Microsoft. Good Luck!

Hmm, I don't think you will be able to re-configure the network for it but i suggest you install the program each by each as they are different "Windows" Products.

    Microsoft powerpoint

    Hi there,

    Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Office system, and runs on Microsoft Windows and the Mac OS computer operating systems. The Windows version can run on the Linux operating system, under the Wine compatibility layer.

    PowerPoint is widely used by business people, educators, students, and trainers and is among the most prevalent forms of persuasive technology. Beginning with Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft revised the branding to emphasize PowerPoint's place within the office suite, calling it Microsoft Office PowerPoint instead of just Microsoft PowerPoint. The current versions are Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 for Windows and 2008 for Mac.
