I'm a network admin at a university and one of the departments is hosting their site on their own personal server running Server 2003 and Windows Web services. They've been asking me how would they go about mirroring their site in the event of a power loss intentional or otherwise. There are times during holiday periods where building maintenance will shut off power but they still want students to be able to get to their site. So they want to set up a mirror on another server in an office offsite.
I've done some research on the subject but I haven't been able to find anything dealing with mirroring Microsoft hosted sites.
Most people probably run Linux on their media servers, but since I don't know much about Linux and the media server we have is unmanaged, I was wondering how you guys feel about running Windows Server 2003 Std on a media server instead of Linux. We'll only be using the server to host Flash video files (.flv) and we'll be serving those vids on websites hosted on other servers, resulting in approx. 50,000-100,000 media views per day (filesizes range from approx. 5MB to 10MB). We don't want to run Windows Media Services, just a Web server (IIS6) and have the Flash video players on the external websites take care of the streaming/downloading part.
I have three machines in network. One is server with Windows 2003. And rest two are having Win XP Professional and MS Office with Publisher. I want to create website using Publisher on one machine and put to Web server created on Win 2003 server. So that other machines on the network can browse my thsi local website.
We currently have a dedicated development server with our company's host (not hostgator) in which we are charged a decent amount to have on a yearly basis. I was looking to cut down costs and wanted to see if it would be feasible to have a windows box we have in the office setup as our development server. We would install windows 2003 on it along with anything else we need. The current development server is hosted under a IIS 6 / Windows 2003 / CF 7 Environment. If it is doable, what kind of problems would we run into vs having it on a real server? It would only have at the most 3-4 connections possibly once or twice a week so speed is not a huge deal.
Also, how tedious is installing, setting up and migrating everything over for the MSSQL database going to be?
"Create a zend id for your machine." This is apparently for them to create a product key for their software and have to bind to it?!
I have never heard of this and have been unable to locate any information on it.
This is a Centos box with php 5.2.5 installed: Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2007 Zend Technologies with Zend Extension Manager v1.2.2, Copyright (c) 2003-2007, by Zend Technologies with Zend Optimizer v3.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2007, by Zend Technologies
I have home network of 5 computers and 1 server running server 2003. I'm trying to use the IIS on the server to run multiple sites (for design purposes). i've installed DNS and setup my primary zone "shane.com" in "forward zone" i've added Host(a) and called it "test6"
in IIS i've set up a new site and in host header value i've put test6.shane.com. everything works great on the server. when i type in [url]in the browser the page comes up without any problems. however when i do the same thing on the other workstations it pulls up the page some some other page from the internet and not my LAN as if it wasn't connecting to the primary DNS (which i changed to my server's ip 192.168.1.2).
what am i doing wrong? why does it work on the server but not on any other workstation on my LAN?
I have just recieved a new machine from leaseweb. I have no other machines in any of their datacenters so this may be something specific to there firewall rules.
The machine came with leaseweb dns server entries, they wouldnt resolve any addresses so i changed them to openDNS addresses for the time being (188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206)
These DNS servers I know to work, however they still fail to resolve addresses either by nslookup or through a browser. (DNS Request Timed Out)
the server can ping the opendns addresses.
I have verified that the DNS Client service is started.
I dont know of any dependancies of the DNS client service - although I have noticed that leaseweb disable a lot of services on their default install. - Could it be a service that isnt started thats stopping DNS from resolving?
I dont want to configure the Microsoft DNS server on this machine although I will if neccesary.
I want to install the application (if it is an application) on my Win 2003 dedicated so I can run PHP scripts.
If I go to this page:
there are a number of files, not sure which one I should download. Once downloaded, where do I put it, in Program Files? Is there an .exe file or something I should double click on to install it? Or id this supposed to be install on IIS?
I have a server running windows server 2003, IIS. I have a password protected folder where i have a coldfusion script. I'm trying to write a Batch Script that will run the coldfusion script but the Password Protected folder is giving me problems. I'm using Integrated Authentication on that folder.
anyone know how to write a .BAT script that will load the script and also pass the u/p to that folder so the script can be run?
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 220.127.116.11 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 18.104.22.168. 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 22.214.171.124 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?
if there are any major differences between administrating a standard networked Win 2003 server, like SBS for example, compared to a 2003 server to be used for webhosting?
I'm fairly nifty on 2003 and have a colleague is is well clued up on it and Windows may be an option as an additional server for us other than linux so wanted to look into the support aspect of using it.
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?
I yesterday installed VMware Server under Windows Server 2003 x64, Enterprise Edition, and have this morning noticed the message 'Service unavailable' when browsing to a website hosted on the server under IIS. I have briefly looked into the problem and found the DefaultAppPool stopped, but after restarting it, it resets back to the stopped state when I once again browse to a hosted website.
Does anyone have any experience of this problem and a workaround?
I have a windows server 2003 server with IIS 6 installed on it. My site runs fine, then all of a sudden becomes VERY slow.
I asked server hosts to take a look at it, and they noticed an IP that is has attempted to connect on port 80 432 times in a few seconds, causing the site to slow down.
Is there any software i can use to try and combat this spam/abuse? I have a trend micro anti-virus and firewall installed on the server. I have blocked that IP, but there is nothing stopping that from changing.
Also, are there any free/cheap server monitoring tools for the server that i can monitor the server remotely with?
The server has SNMP installed and configured according to my server hosts... watever that is.
