I am setting up a Xseries 345 server using ServerGuide 7.14 everything runs fine untill it start to copy files it than gives me a blank screen and nothing happens after that


Hi,
This is probably a Server Guide issue. You may check with one step lower verion and one step higher version of server guide. It may solve issue.
If that doesn't work, you may have to manually install OS without server guide. You can use a either use a floppy drive or pen drive to load controller driver. Once installed, rest of the drivers can be downloaded from IBM site or install from server guide cd

Thanks

How to Setup Microsoft Exchange Server


<p>Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 released on September 28, 2003. One of the new features in Exchange Server 2003 is enhanced disaster recovery which allows administrators to bring the server online more quickly. This is done by allowing the server to send and receive mail while the message stores are being recovered from backup. Now newly released version of Exchange server is Exchange 2010 after 2007 version. Exchange server 2010 officially released on 9th November 2009. But here I will discuss about Microsoft Exchange server 2003. In a workstation most of users are use Microsoft Exchange server as mail server.<br /> <p><span><span><b>Requirement of Exchange Server 2003:</b></span></span> <span> </span>Required OS for Exchange Server2003 is Microsoft Server 2oo3. There this Server should be a domain controller. For Exchange 2003 need some protocol like <br /> <p> <br /> <p><span><span><b><span> </span><span> </span></b></span></span>1&gt; asp.net<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>2&gt; SMTP<br /> <p><span> </span>3&gt;NMTP<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>4&gt;W.W.W<br /> <p> <br> <p>IIS should be install in server . In hardware system should have minimum 256MB of memory<br> <p><span><span><b>Installation of Exchange Server 2003: </b></SPAN></SPAN>There have three steps to install Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.<br> <p><span><span>1&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation of forest<br> <p><span><span>2&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation<span> </SPAN>of domain<br> <p><span><span>3&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Installation<span> </SPAN>of Exchange Server<br> <p>To install Exchange Server you have to install the required protocol first. I have install the windows component such as IIS, ASP.NET, NNTP, W.W.W. from control panel with OS CD. Then I insert the Exchange Server Disk in CD rom drive and start the preparation of forest. I open the disk and run the forest prep from Exchange 2003 deployment tools. It will take several times to complete. After completing the forest prep I have run the Domain prep with the same procedure. The Domain prep will take also lots of time to complete. Then I have installed the exchange server by creating a new exchange organization. The total process also possible to complete from Run with command. The total job takes a huge time almost one hour or more. After installing Exchange Server I have configured it as per direction of the company. I have add users, groups, I create new administrative group. Following this process there I have done the whole job successfully. <br> <p><span></SPAN>

"Harddisk not found" error during


If the computer is telling you that the hard disk is not found, then either it is not hooked up correctly, is set to "disabled" in the BIOS setup, or the hard drive is bad.
Check those things in that order.

I WANT TO INSTALL 2003 SERVER ON IBM X236 BUT IT IS SHOWING NO DRIVE PRESENT


Use the IBM configuration disk and it should be able to prepare the server for what ever OS you need to install. If you don't have it then, try redoing RAID and reformat the hard drives and try again..You can probably hit F6 during the initial portion of the install and supply the necessary SATA drivers on a floppy and get it to install. You will probably need a USB floppy though unless your server has a floppy drive.

Insert your Microsoft Server 2003 Installation disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive and boot the server from the installation disc. Microsoft Setup will load the files it needs to perform an installation. Press "Enter" to setup and install Windows.

  • 2 Press "F8" to accept the Microsoft License Agreement.
  • 3 Create a new partition to install the operating system onto by selecting the "Unpartitioned Space" and pressing "C." If there is no unpartitioned space, highlight and delete all of the other partitions on the hard drive by pressing "D." Set the partition size to the "Maximum Size" and press "Enter."
  • 4 Format your new partition with the "NTFS" or the "NTFS (Quick)" option. Windows setup will format your hard drive and load the installation files. Your IBM Netfinity will restart and installation will continue.
  • 5 Select language and regional setup information, then press "Next." Enter your name and company name, then press "Next." Enter your Windows 2003 Server Product Key and press "Next."
  • 6 Select the licensing mode you would prefer to use and press "Next." Create an administrative account and password and press "Next." Enter the current time and time zone and press "Next."
  • 7 Setup your Network information by naming the server and defining how it will connect through the net. Press "Next" to navigate through the network setup screens. Windows Setup will finish the installation process and provide you with a log-in screen to use your computer.
  • If you delete old partitions from the hard drive to install Windows Server 2003, you will lose all information on those partitions.

    What is the mean auto exe c bat in dos files??


    An AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains MS-DOS commands which are executed automatically when a Personal Computer boots. This file is usually located in the root directory of the hard drive or floppy from which the computer boots (or starts) up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is used to set various default settings and to run programs that should be executed upon startup. Below you will find a list of executable statements (commands) that typically go into an AUTOEXEC.BAT file, along with explanations their.


    The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one form of a batch file, and it is used to automate functions in MS-DOS. In their simplest form, batch files contain MS-DOS commands (batch file language) which includes commands for such things as loops and execution branches and the like.
    ECHO
    Example: @ECHO OFF
    This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed

    To recover your motherboard bios and bring it back to life, you will need this following things:

    1. Floppy Drive: It is needed to load the Boot Disk and the new BIOS update.
    2. Boot Floppy: It is needed to load the basic operating system, preferably MS DOS.
    3. ISA Video Card: Optional, but can simply the recovery process.

    Notes:
    A startup disk can be automatically built from the Add/Remove Programs applet within the control panel. The boot disk is a vital part of this guide, though users with WinNT/2K will need to build this boot disk from a system running MS-DOS or Win9x/ME.

    You can obtain it also from this website: www.Bootdisk.com

    Be sure to copy all needed BIOS utilities and update/backup files used during the original flash process to this disk as well.

    After making the boot disk, delete the config.sys and autoexec.bat in the boot disk. It can be found in the disk primary directory path.

    Create your own autoexec,bat. Using a notepad, build the autoexec.bat file by putting all the command lines in flashing a BIOS.

    The approach for using flash utility from AMI or Phoenix is similar, but be sure to read the provided help information about each command line option before building the autoexec.bat entry. Create the text command entry, and then save to the file "autoexec.bat" in drive A: . This will load the command at floppy boot time, regardless of whether an ISA video card is available.

    Name of Command Interpreter


    Do you have a autoexec.bat on the root directory on you server that has a path to C:\windows in it?

    If it is there then reinstall the operating system. It has crashed. It's an old error message that was used when DOS was needed to be installed before loading windows.
