Domain user


Hello Mr. Ali. I've been recently admitted to this Win Server 2008 R2 course. I had a class related to your problem, so I believe that I may help you solve this problem.

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and then click Active Directory Users and Computers. Goto the properties of your created Domain Controller and scroll down to find this function "DSMmachineAccount", click to to change the value to Zero.

Hope this will work.
Sincerely Khurram Karim.

Thank you for the last one. know i want to set up mu 3laptops on the windows server 2008 r2 standered and use the server as a domain and the laptops as well like a domain.


first you need to setup the roles in the server, go to the manage server console, ( can be found as a shortcut in the taskbar or under start menu ) then open the console and go to add roles.

1 - add active directory

2 - in the process it will ask you to install the DNS server role ( do it )

3 - after installing the role in the CMD command prompt type DCPROMO

4 - the DC controller installation and setup will beging ( do not do anything during this proccess )

5 - when asked by DC setup to choose what type of domain functionality level do the following

1 - windows 2003 ( this is for compatibility for windows server running 2003 and XP machines )

2 - Windows Server 2008 ( at this point nothing lower than XP can be added to the DC of course domain functionalities will increase - Only other 2008 server domain controller can be added and cluster migration from server 2003 to 2008 is not supported. )

3 - Windows Server 2008 R2 ( at this point only machines running Vista and 7 can be added to domain - windows xp is no longer supported. All the functionalities of the domain controller are available)

keep in mind once you promote the domain controller to a higher level it can't be brouht to a lower level.

once active directory is installed restart you server and the you should be able to add the clients pc or laptos to the DC example

- right click over my computer icon
- click on properties
- computer name
- change the computer from workgroup to domain
- type your FQDN ( fully qualified domain name) example: mynetwork.local or mysite.com
- apply changes and restart
- your computer will be part of the domain next time system boots up.

Hi

To reply your query in short. If you have any of the following versions of server it would support the maximum RAM upto 4 GB.

Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition
Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition SP1
Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition SP2
Windows Storage Server 2003
Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition
Windows Small Business Server 2003

If you are using : Windows Server 2003, Web Edition
It will support only 2 GB of RAM

BDC for Windows Server 2003


Windows 2003 does not use the PDC/BDC format like the old NT did. They are all just considered DC's now.

Just run dcpromo on the new domain controler and select the option "additional dc to an existing domain". Once that is done, if you are using Active Directory, it will sync up with the other DC.

IBM server dc can't boot due to system32\drivers\pci.sys missing


You mention on boot that the server shows a logical drive of 158GB, which obviously means the server is detecting the drives ok.

Quite often Windows doesn't have the correct drivers to support systems using RAID controllers such as IBM ServerRaid, so this is probably why the setup CD states "No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot". When the Windows Setup CD Boots, it should at some point (on the blue screen) at the bottom of the screen state something like "Press F6 to load additional drivers". If you can get the correct drivers from IBM website, and load them by pressing F6, Windows should be able to see the drives ok. Hopefully it will then be able to successfully repair the error.
