  • 2. Win 2003 Mainboard Upgrade
    Hi everyone, I will be upgrading my main Win2k3 server shortly and this will require a new motherboard being installed. Could anyone recommend some steps to show how this could be done? Obviously right now if I move the main system drives, on boot up it will simply blue screen. Is it possible to setup windows so that when it reboots it reasses its state? Drives, disks etc. Alternatively, if I do a fresh install on the new machine, can I simply take the system state (backed up using ntbackup) to the new system and restore? I am happy about reinstalling applications, however AD must be preserved. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. All of my users have roaming profiles, thus "screwing" up the system isn't an option! :) ... as is always the care im sure haha. Thanks to everyone, Taz

3.Find out what a security group does

Hi all,

Imagine the scenario, you are browsing your AD and you find a group with a 
strange name, with a few members in it...

You then decide to attempt to either delete it or rename it to what it 
actually does, but because of the strange name, you have absolutely no idea 
what it is for?

Is there a tool which can scan folders and list all the ACL's so I can find 
out what exactly it gives permission to?
