Just can't type '@'
spotted a typo
in line 10 it should read "format fs=NTFS"
Ahh lucky you I didn't manage to get out to Darwin, I really wanted to go but ended up stuck in a Cyclone on Carins instead.
I had an excellent time in New Zealand expecialy the south island, if you go you've got to get down to Queenstown and Milford. Soooo jealous
Here on just a 1 year working holiday visa, going to extend it another year, and hopefully in the meantime find a company that will sponsor me to enable me to stay here permanently.
I spent a year here between school and Uni, so have travelled pretty much all over already.. Just Perth and Darwin I need to get to.
Wouldnt mind getting accross to New Zealand at some point too.
Are you living in Oz or traveling?
I wish a software system was developed that would monitor an applications installed, and usage there after, I mean there are installation monitors to create packages, but nothing to follow it on from there, to monitor calls to folders, files and the likes and than create an export of the complete software package onto a new system.
Would make life such a breeze, if changing a PC, you don't need to reinstall, you just backup the program and move it onto a new machines.
Good guide and very useful. Same method I used today.
Quick warning though, BOOTSECT requires Administrator priviledges and will fail if you open the Command Prompt normally in Windows Vista (or Windows XP as a limited user). Users need to do the BOOTSECT portion of the guide using a Command Prompt opened by right clicking it in the Start Menu and choosing Run As Administrator. Otherwise it just says "Cannot trace a path to disk. Access Denied."
This bit confused the hell out of me until I tried a command prompt with Administrator permissions and my problems were fixed.
You can also jsut copy the files to a USB stick and run Setup while logged into Windows Vista if you want to cheat a bit. It copies enough files to C:\ to boot to Windows Setup to finish the job.
Ah so that explains why you were not answering my phones calls and text messages ;-) you can have a break you know matey! i have some news for you lol!! yes it is to do with SharePoint hehe! its all good fun mate!
@cookie_monster... think you are right, but even with the specify the username/password route - the same thing happens.
Real pain, and took a while to find out what caused it.
Hahaha i've just spent ages trying to fix this and found the same KB to sort it, I thought i'd post my findings here but had a quick search and bang someone has already come accross the issue.
It's odd as we don't have any clients or servers running less than XP SP2/2003 SP2 can anyone tell me why we need to allow a policy that puts back the encryption to NT4 levels.
I think it must be something to do with the "DoOldStyleDomainJoin = yes" setting.
Thanks for this, very useful to know.
Thanks for pointing me here mate. Feedback has been pro OCS rather than a branded ISP like MSN Messenger or an open source version so far.
Terry, how're you getting on with the SoftXpand mate? Even if it's bad, lemmeknow and we'll try and help out. Filled in the lunch poll and realised I don't take lunch because I'm EduGeeking now!
Thanks. As it happened it turned out really well. That nervous energy of not knowing what's going on seemed to help.
ha, thats why open mic nights exist....
good luck, i'm sure it'll all come together in the end
I've found the discs for this sent by Microsoft.
I can't see 64-bit on the VLS site though.
Nope, you pay for a license for a version of windows not different bit levels of it.
So, you buy a license for 'Windows Server 2003 Standard' you have a license for 32 and 64 bit versions.
Am I right in saying that a different schools agreement license is needed for 64-bit server installs?
Ok, thanks for the information.Than it would be nice if you and your partners would write on their websites that if the customers pushes the start button on their new Softxpand computer for x users, they are all in order regarding the Ms Windows xp licenses.
I have my doubts : Review: MiniFrame SoftXpand Business - vnunet.com
I will test this myself within a few weeks.
