How to increase allocation unit size in XP

By specifying an override value during the format process (which will destroy all data already on the partition you're formatting) or by using a third-party tool to non-destructively resize your hard drive allocation units (also called clusters, blocks, or inodes). If you're hard drive is formatted NTFS then you can't use NTFS compression if you raise the cluster size above 4,096 bytes (4KB). Also keep in mind that increasing cluster size can potentially waste more hard drive space, especially when you've got many files that are significantly smaller than a single cluster. For example, in Windows XP a 1 kilobyte file still uses one entire 4KB cluster, and only one file can use a given cluster at a time. 1,000 of these 1 kilobyte files would use 1,000 clusters but only fill about 25% of the space; the remaining 75% would be wasted.

Conversely, smaller cluster sizes can start impacting performance since they require more time to locate and read than larger clusters. Thus you need to get the right balance of the least amount of wasted space for smallest performance hit. Windows XP is optimized for 4KB clusters (it's default for 2GB+ hard drives), so you're best leaving it alone if that's what you have.

Cant configre printer sharing via web on win server 2003

Yes is possible. Use Routing and Remote Access facility from Windows 2003 server to create a VPN Server. Create a VPN connection to Windows server, and thus you get an IP address from windows 2003 server and you can use printer.

The SQL disks are slow responces in windows cluster

This issue seems a bit dated: basically in short, in the group cluster that has the disks failing to come fully online, it seems one of the resources which has dependencies. This dependency is failing and causing the rest of the resources to fail and disks do not go online. fix the dependency or remove it as a dependency and the disks will come on line.
use cluster manager to locate the resources and select properties and then .. interrogate it and remove the dependency for now. Once removed ... then bring the other resources online.

Windows server


my suggestion is: without ADS, we cannot create a domain server(till 2003 server). because, ADS is only known as Server and also it is the primary record for a domain creation.

we can go for installing ADS, by two methods.

1. using "dcpromo" command

2. Go to Administrative tools on the control panel. we can see the manage your server wizard. work with this.

we can install some services later, like dns,dhcp,ris. but ADS is the primary part.

Active directory

An application directory partition is represented by a domainDNS object with an instanceType attribute value of DS_INSTANCETYPE_IS_NC_HEAD combined with DS_INSTANCETYPE_NC_IS_WRITEABLE. This domainDNS object represents the application directory partition root (NC head), and is named similar to a regular domain partition, for example, "DC=dynamicdata,DC=fabrikam,DC=com", which corresponds to a DNS name of "". An application directory partition can, therefore, be instantiated anywhere a domain partition can be instantiated. There is no NetBIOS name associated with an application directory partition.

It is possible to nest application directory partitions, that is, an application directory partition can have child application directory partitions. Searches with subtree scope rooted at an application directory partition head will generate continuation references to the child application directory partitions.

An application directory partition replica can only be created on a domain controller that is running on Windows Server 2003 and later and only while the Domain-Naming FSMO role is held by a Windows Server 2003 and later domain controller. In a mixed forest that has both Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and down-level domain controllers (Windows 2000 domain controllers or Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers), an attempt to create an application directory partition replica on a down-level domain controller will fail.

An application directory partition also has a corresponding crossRef object in the Partitions container of the configuration partition. The crossRef can be pre-created manually before creating the domainDNS object. The pre-created crossRef object must have the attribute values shown in the following table or the partition creation will fail. If the crossRef object does not exist, the Active Directory server will create one when the application directory partition is created.

Some bus resets are required before you see devices available as quorum elements.

Those IP addresses can be different. Using IPv6 I hope....

SQL server can do clustering its own way or use the Enterprise Server base (or third party stuff.)

Hey, you can't ask MSDN forums everything or cite the machines and architectures you hope to achieve, right?

System State not successfully

This is common in the following OS.

• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Web Edition • Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86) • Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86) • Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition • Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition

This problem occurs when the following conditions are true: • You back up data from a volume that contains a Microsoft SQL Server database. • The recovery model of the SQL Server database is configured to use an option that is different from Simple.
