Windows Application 2003 Crashes On RAID 5 Server, Can I Recover Data
Jun 12, 2007
Windows Application 2003 crashed on RAID 5 server, we tried to take the NTFS files from the hardrive and mount them on a knobix which was booted from a cdrom drive. Knopix could read the files but it was unable to mount them I guess for compatiblity reasons.
Is there anyway we can get a backup of that ntfs file and restore our data?
What should be the best option to do I have a couple of hard drives (5 x 750GB) I want to use RAID on them and I have this RAID ware controller
Which one would be the best option RAID 6 right? Since I am going to have more than 5 hard drives soon ( I will be adding 3-4 in the next month *750GBS*)
Also If I add the hard drives later on it won't affect the data at all ? Like I would not have to erase anything before adding the new hard drive space , I will just have the data still + the new space?
I have 100+ sites on this hard drive, and one site in particular that meant the world to me.
My host sent the drive to Gillware first, but they failed saying that the file system was so severely damaged that they could not recover anything.
Then shortly after, my host sent it to DriveSavers, a very well-known company, but they also FAILED.
I'm extremely depressed because of this. Please don't post if you're going to say "make sure you do backups next time" because I've heard it 504329504395 times now, and while I do realize my mistake, saying that does NOT help me.
I am willing to spend ALOT to get my sites back. I still have hope. Are there any other companies out there BETTER than DriveSavers? Assuming that you'd still have hope even after two companies failed, where you would you go or what would you do?
i developed a socket application to recive data from port.this application recvng data from a unit through port no 4444(Vehicle Tracking unit). this application recvng data and evrything is ok....but some times no anydata is coming in to this application.for eg:if application recves data 2 days after that 2 days it will recve one or two data only....again after 2 days it will recve all data correcly....that means lot of missing data we have....my question is whether this missing data is bse of my socket application or unit?
The manufacturing company telling us unit is sending the data continuiously..but some times this socket application is not recvng data in 2 days interval....i dont know how to solve this issue....is any other setting is required in server to recve data continuously....
i think socket application 100% is ok...unit maufactures telling unit also sending data continuously...then where the problem is???can anybdy share ur idea about this?
I am putting this thread to take other people advise and to advise them about my bad experience with rsync. Lucky, I was able to get my data back through the old drive
Three times a day, I take mysqldump and then rsync that mysql dump to a drive located in a different state.
Everything was working fine..The rsync was transferring data daily and updating the backup on other server. Few days ago, there was a hard drive failure on my server and then i checked in my backup drive for mysql dump...It was 764 bytes instead of 5 Gb...
Then i went to my other server where I rsync, to my surprise that was also 764 bytes from 5 Gb as it synced the both database..
My backup strategy failed and would be in tears if I couldn't grap data from failed drive
I would like to hear everyone views on this and learn from it
The host is going to mount this HD on the same machine after adding a new hard drive and fresh install... Does anyone have any recommendations for how I can go about recovering data? Specifically mysql databases?
With Windows 2003 server, there are comprehensive lists of what you need to do to secure the server before use. For Windows 2008, I wonder is there such a list? Or is it true as what I heard from Microsoft that it is already secured out of the box?
Anyone has any resources on the hardening or preparation of 2008 for server hosting uses?
This is my first dedicated and I am plugging away at it.I am running windows server 2003 web edition and I have my database, website, and ftp setup and everything is working so far. Now if you go to 18.104.22.168 my site that I'm working on will show up. My question is my domain and site that I am in the process of moving is hosted on a shared server on 1and1. Now I need that domain to point to that ip. Do I need to set up name servers on the server? If so can someone point me in th right direction.
We have two Windows Server 2003 machines as active directory controllers and DNS servers for our in-house operations. For our purposes, let's say the domain name is example.com.
Both servers have DNS, and example.com is stored in Active Directory to allow us to use the benefits this provides. Our issue is probably simple, but I'm not sure how to fix it.
Let's call server one EX1, and server two EX2. These have local IPs of 192.168.1.111 and 192.168.1.112, respectively.
We want example.com to be resolved to an external IP address (for web hosting), let's say 22.214.171.124. The problem is, the two domain controllers keep registering example.com with their internal IP addresses .111 and .112, so the DNS round-robins between 126.96.36.199 and the two internal servers, which aren't web servers.
Is there a way we can get those DNS controllers to stop registering their internal IPs as example.com?
i am starting up a buisness running my own web servers and the licensing system for windows Server 2003 standard is really confusing and i was wondering if someone could give a simple explaination if possible.
I will be using these servers for Plesk web hosting.
and with CALs if i am renting out Dedicated servers and they use win server 2003 would i pre install CALs on it or would customer do that.
I have a server running Win 2003 server at a data centre.Microsoft has released SP2 but mine is SP1.I have no access to the server physically and I wonder can I install SP2 using remote desktop?Will I get logout halfway?
