microsoft.public.windows.server.dns - Microsoft Windows
Hello there, Hopefully someone out there will be able to give me some pointers on what we are trying to do. We are a smallish school who have a network consisting of about 200 clients and about 600 users, all of which have their userdrives stored on the central server (total storgae used is about 120 Gig). The 2000 server is very slow at the moment so we are about to purchase a new server with 2003 preinstalled, but we are looking for the best way to get everything off one server and onto the other. We have spoken to quite a few people, all of which have given conflicting views on how to go about this. Some people have advised using tools such as adduser and xcacls for populating AD on the 2003 server and assigning user permissions for homedrives etc (obviously after running adprep and forestprep), but some have mentioned other tools by Hyena that do the same thing (amongst other things) What we really want to know is how to go about this in the most less-complicated way. We are also aware that we have to transfer FSMO roles amongst other things, and we are assuming that we can jsut create a new scope once up and running for DHCP and that DNS and WINS will just work once installed. Are we corect in thinking this? Myself and my colleagues have tried looking through TEchnet and other resources online but all the help seems to be conflicting and there doesnt seem to be anywhere that tells you exactly how to do what we want to do in meaningful steps. Surely thousands of people have had to do this since 2003 server was released, but no-one's seemed to have documented the best practices involved!??! I would really appreciate some help or pointers to any other online resources or texts. many thanks
Can I do this? I have a 2 node SQL cluster running Windows 2003, and another SQL 2000 server running Windows 2003 (all Enterprise). Can I add the stand alone box to my existing cluster, so the passive node can take over for either of the active nodes?
We are running SBS 2003 R2 with exchange server 2003 We are using the POP3 conenctor to retreive our mail from our ISP using a global mailbox. Normal mail is coming and gioing OK We do however have a number of read receipts in the 'Failed Mail Folder' that have 'Undisclosed recipients' in to To address. Is this a problem we can fix on our mail server or is this a problem with the recipients mail server. I have read the relevant articles on exchange and bcc but wondered is there was some other issues that can cause or overcome this problem. We do get some read receipts back in that are addressed properly so I though that it might be the recipiets mail server or client rather than ours. Many thansk for reading this post hope you can help. cheers Dave
