  • 2. Server 2003 Group Policies - Affecting Administrative Profile
    Hello, I'm setting up a dedicated Terminal Server and I have a question regarding local group policies in Windows Server 2003. Is there a way to apply group policies to all user profiles aside from Administrator? Obviously I want certain restrictions for user profiles that need not apply to the administrative profile (Example: disabling access to the control panel). Is there a way to specify which users GP's apply to? Thanks,
  • 3. Resuming failed backup
    I am using Windows Backup (NTbackup.exe) to backup 1TB of files to a network drive. Because it takes 36 hours for this to complete, the chance of it failing is high. Can I resume a failed backup (without resorting to a subsequent differential backup)? Is robocopy a better solution for what I'm doing? My concern is with with "in use" files, (ie. a PST files was causing Robocopy to stop, retry, stop retry endlessly). What is your recommendation, besides using a third party tool. Your help is greatly appreciated. -Ben

cannot access print shares on w2k srver but can access directory s

I've got a server running windows 2000 server sp4.  It has a number directory 
and print shares.  I might add I got roped into a system that I've never 
worked on before. I can access the directory shares from any windows xp 
machine but when I go to access the printers I get the error 

"\\server\hplj4300 not accessible, you may not have permission to access 
this network resource"

I've tried removing the print shares and adding them back with no result.  
I've also tried removing the permissons for the printers and adding back.   
I've upgraded the serice pack from sp1 to sp4 with no result.  

Another thing I noticed is a cannot browse the shared resources on the 
server by typing in the unc path \\servername at the start/run prompt.  The 
only thing that comes up is blank window.   I able to shared access a 
directory resource by typing the unc path \\servername\sharename.  

Any ideas?  thanks in advance.

Do you have Internet Protocol TCP/IP setup under Local 
Area Connections on both computers? And, IMHosts under its 

Did you go to Computer Management and do the folder 
sharing there?

Did you create duplicate accounts with duplicate passwords 
on each computer? Did you give all of those same 
permissions in Computer Management, there?

3.Cannot access administrative shares on XP from a W2K computer

Hi everybody,

I've recently installed Windows XP Professional (SP3) on my main 
development machine, all the other computers in my home network are running 
Windows 2000.

Since then, I'm unable to access any administrative share of the XP machine 
from any other W2000 machine.

Normally, I just create a new network connection, point it to \\192.168.1.x
\c$ (or any other drive I might need), and enter the name and password (if 
needed). Most of the times, the last step is not needed because the more 
recent machines have the same user/password as my main machine. Only the 
DMZs and the older machines have other user/password combinations.

Of course, the default Windows firewall has been disabled, so that should 
not be an issue.

I've even tried changing the username to \\machine\username and other 
variations, but I'm still unable to connect.

What am I doing wrong? Can anybody please tell me how I can access the 
administrative shares on my computer?

Thanks very much,

5.xp cannot access shared folders, vista can, xp can access printer

        My Vista Business system is sharing its internet  connection with 2 
XP computers ( 1 Pro, the other home edition).   I did not have a problem 
until recently.  The XP computers have no problem accessing the internet, 
and I have installed and used a printer shared from the Vista system on the 
XP home edition computer.  I cannot access or even see the shared folders on 
the Vista system. When either xp system expands My Network Places->Entire 
Network->Microsoft Windows Network->workgroup  all of the connected pcs are 
displayed, clicking on the +next to the Vista's systemname makes the + 
disappear, and clicking on the name gets the following error message " \\ 
Martins-new-pc is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this 
network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if 
you have permissions.       Access denied."

        Vista Network & Sharing Center has network listed as private with 
Network discovery, file sharing, public folder sharing and printer sharing 
all on. Password protected sharing and Media sharing are off.  I have read 
all of the troubleshooting help files and am at a loss. All shares give 
'Everyone' permission to access.The xp computers were able to access Vista 
shares about two weeks ago andbefore that with no problem.  In the interim I 
have installed Visual Studio .Net 2008 plus recent automatic windows 
updates.  I feel that there is probably a simple solution since ICS and 
printer sharing are working fine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
