Accessing thro NETBIOS

  • 2. Restoring Servers - to dissimilar hardware
    Hi, I really have become bored of rebuilding servers from scratch. By rebuild, I mean formatting & partitioning drives, installing MS 2003 OS (and Oh those patches!), things like server roles, Programs, etc. and all the setting that go with them. In thinking about solutions, I came to the conclusion that I'm not fully sure that a restore can be performed to dissimilar hardware. I'd like to be able to take disk images and just drop them into either like or new server hardware without having to rebuild anything. (I need to spend my time elsewhere) Hence I would have a picture of the server (less user files that may be backed up by other means) and just drop this image on new hardware. If there a complete solution for this without the need to format and partition drives, intall OS, Programs, etc? Thanks much, Mark

In other words, it's a different key for every printer model. To find out what it is, export the key for a particular printer (including all subkeys), then disable birectional printing and export the key again, this time to a different file. Now use fc.exe to compare the two files.
  • 4. Windows 64-bit in a Windows 32-bit environment
    Hi, All my server OS are 32-bit. I am going to upgrade my exchange server to exchange server 2007 which requires a 64-bit OS. Are there any special requirements that I need to be aware of before upgrading to windows 2003 64-bit in an environment where everything else (all other servers... domain controllers, active directory, sql databases, proxy servers, etc) is running Windows 32-bit OS? Thanks, CC
  • 5. Windows 200 Server & Logman.exe?
    I have a batch file to start a specific set of performance counters that I'm using on some client's Windows 2003 Server systems. Just tried deploying this to a Windows 2000 Server enironment, and it can't find Logman.exe. Searching around, I found an article that says "Logman is a superset of the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit's Tracelog facilities", but I can't find it there either. Is this correct? Does Win2k even have logman?

Accessing thro NETBIOS

Postby VGFq » Sat, 02 Jun 2007 03:32:00 GMT

I was having a file server with name HOFILE1 and also can be access by 
OPRSRV & HOLAN. We decide to change HW of this server so build new server 
with win2k3 and change name as HOLAN. Everything running fine except that 
users can not access this server using another DNS entyr OPRSRV. It gives 
below error

pleas help me to resolve this issue as in my orgnaization most of the users 
access their share folders using OPRSRV.

thanks in advance

Perhaps let the readers know what OPRSRV & HOLAN are? Are thses existing 
servers? Two seperate machines?

Sorry for confusion.
With old file server HOLAN & OPRSRV are dns entry pointing to IP of the 
server. With new server I name the server as HOLAN and OPRSRV is again DNS 
entry pointing to IP.

I'm still confused as to whether you're talking about 2 or 3 machines. HOLAN 
& OPRSRV <<< 1 or 2 machines? What is the IP and netbois name? HOFILE1 you 
rebuilt and rename to HOLAN?

1.Problem accessing RAS thro VPN!!

Hello all,

Here's the configuration.
We have a windows2003 small business server installed on a HP server as a 
domain controller. This server has been configured as a Remote Access Server 
to allow users to connect to the server thro the internet. A router has been 
installed for external connectivity. what we noticed is, if we configure NAT 
in the Router VPN doesn't work, that means users are not able to connect to 
the server thro VPN or VPN dialer.  If the router is configured as a bridge, 
VPN works fine, we can login thro terminal services and take control of the 
server without any problems. But, this disables internet connectivity for the 
desktop pc's in the intranet. Is it possible to have both NAT working in the 
router and internet working for the pc's in the intranet? And, the server has 
only one network card, do i have to install a second one to accomplish this? 
can't we do it one nic.

Any help is appreciated.

2.Accessing Applications thro Terminal Services

I have a win 2k3 server- when i try accessing a particular application (an 
accounting software) through remote connection, it shows an error message 
saying a particular dll file is not available. This problem does not occur 
when i log on as 'administrator' but any other user with administrative 
rights faces this problem! Can anyone help?!

3.Disabling NetBIOS and NetBIOS style domain name


Can somebody explain me how AD where client and servers 
are having NetBIOS disabled able to logon clients using 
NetBIOS domain name?
For example I have domain called with NetBIOS 
name TEST. So when I logon to workstation I don't specify 
UPN ( but rather leave DOMAIN field populated 
with TEST domain.
Question is how AD client resolves this TEST name using 


4.Cant ping fqn or netbios, but can map netbios but not fqn

I have a weird issue going on.  I have a windows 2003 host that is
part of a domain.  It has two nics in the box: - LAN ADAPTER - Subnet Mask - Gatway - NLB ADAPTER - Subnet Mask
no gatway defined

For some strange reason I cant ping the box called lets say: -

Cant ping by name, cant by direct to the ip, but I can ping other
hosts on the network 10.201.8.x just fine.  I can actually map a drive
to a share on duane-haas via the command line using the netbios name,
and it connects, but when you try to map using the fqn it doesnt
connect.  Also, if I disable the NLB adapter everything works, when I
enable the NLB adapter things work as described above.  Its really
starting to drive me nuts?????  I have another box on the same network
that is configured the same way, and although the host was having the
same problem on wednesday, it seemed to go away after rebooting the
box wednesday night, also rebooted this box wednesday night but it
continues to have the problem.

5.Need TCP NetBIOS Helper to Access Active Directory Server

On Windows 2000 machines on our network, if you look up the Active Directory
name with:


this resolves to the IP address of the Active Directory server.    If
however you simply try to access it directly with:

    dir \\\sysvol

this fails with a message that the location cannot be resolved.

As soon as you turn on the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service, now you are able
to access the AD server using its fully-qualified DNS name.   Why in the
world would you need a NetBIOS Helper service to locate an AD server using
its direct DNS name?    At very least that creates a security problem
doesn't it?   Even with NTLM disabled, does the file service still use some
form of NETBEUI protocol?   What specific components within TCP/IP NetBIOS
Helper service do we need here?
