Note: If the network controller card is not functioning, which can happen with this blade server, you are not prompted for network information. You can set up the network from Windows after Windows Server 2003 is installed.
After Windows 2003 has been installed, you need to install a driver for the Ethernet devices. The drivers must be downloaded from the IBM Device Driver Web site. The Ethernet device on the blade is Broadcom 5708S.
The Web Installer is the easiest way to install Nextcloud on a web space. It checks the dependencies, downloads Nextcloud from the official server, unpacks it with the right permissions and the right user account. Finally, you will be redirected to the Nextcloud installer.
If this server is a member of an AD then a lot of the settings applied in this guide could be automated with Group Policy. Some of these settings include file security, event log locations, firewall policy, windows update policy and more.
The release of Windows Server 2003 brought a significant rewrite to the server software. The main goal of the change was to reduce the need to reboot the system, specifically by providing the ability to install updates and patches without needing to restart.
Another major addition with the 2003 release was the ability to define server roles. This allowed the operating system to be customized for specific tasks, like a DNS server. Microsoft also provided multiple versions of the release, including the Standard, Advanced, and Datacenter versions, and a new Windows Server 2003 Web Edition meant for internet servers. Another update came out not long after the initial release to convert the Windows Server system to a 64-bit environment.
Note: Post releases of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 are Integration Services-aware, but for other operating systems, the guest iso file is located in the C:\windows\system32\ path of the Hyper-V server. Hyper-V Integration Services are similar to the VMware Tools package used to improve the interaction of guest operating systems within the VMware virtualization infrastructure.
BitTorrent is an open source peer-to-peer file sharing protocol , designed for sharing large software and media files. Its advantage over plain HTTP is that the clients protect against data corruption, and when multiple downloads of the same file happen concurrently, the downloaders upload to each other, making it possible for the file source to support very large numbers of downloaders with only a modest increase in its load. If enough people participate it will also be faster than the centralized servers - for everybody.
I know this has been asked before, but I want to make sure I get the correct ISO here.I have a volume license key for 5 Small Business Server 2003, and I have a server that has it installed, SP2. I want to reinstall Small Business Server 2003 SP2, but instead of 32-bit mode, I want to install in 64-bit.I believe the keys for this version of Small Business Server are interchangeable.Does anyone know where I could find the correct ISO? The Product ID is:
That's correct, I said I have a volume license key. So does that make it illegal for me to have this server with Windows Server 2003 installed, even if it's just to play around with for a few days?
How could I determine if it's OEM, Retail, Open License, etc? There's no COA sticker. I went to Licensing and see that there's five licenses installed, under Administrative Tools.I'm thinking about maybe purchasing 2016 for my real server. A friend gave me this to play around with, said wipe it and reinstall first though.I'm having trouble calculating the price for 2016.I thought Datacenter would be the way to go, but it seems datacenter might only be the way to go if I'm running 13 or more VMs.Right now, I'm planning on running maybe 5-7 VMs. 4 would have Windows 7 Pro (retail or VL edition). the rest would have CentOS 7. I would be using 4 computers to connect to it, but I'll also be using a cell phone to communicate sometimes with the physical server (ie, receive messages from the server when something breaks, etc). Maybe two cell phones.For user accounts, there'd be maybe Admin, plus three others.One of the VMs would be a web server. Would I need a user CAL for every user connecting to the webserver? Most of the work we'd be doing remotely (same physical network, same physical location, but from workstations, not at the actual server), but we would do work occasionally at the physical server.The CPU would have 22-cores and just one CPU right now, but eventually, maybe two, depending on where we go and what we do.So I think maybe Standard Edition would work, but a bunch of core-licenses. How much would something like that run? It's hard finding a price calculator, and I've always been a Linux guy. So I don't know much about server editions of Windows and this 2003 SBS is the first server edition I've played with.Also, when it comes time to update to a newer version of Windows Server, are users normally offered a discount? Or do you have to pay full price all over again?The biggest thing is we DO NOT want to have to pay a monthly fee for it, if we can help it, even if it'd be more benefical to pay a monthly fee.Thanks and sorry for all the questions!
datacenter would be overkill since you are not really running any server instances of windows. if you do a webserver on windows, you would want the web edition as you wouldn't need CALS for each user. you can host as many non-microsoft OSes as you have resources on standard edition.
unfortunately, you can't host a desktop OS on server legally. the desktop OS license are tied to hardware and can only be tied to one machine. you can't have more than 1 tied to the same hardware. if you want to host desktop type environment, look at windows multipoint server role in windows server 2016. you'll need RDS CALs for each user. one install, multiple users.
so I think you can buy server standard, then run up to 2 licensed VMs, one running the server 2016 with multipoint role. you'll have an extra server license if you need it. host other non-windows OS as much as you want. get your windows and RDS CALs to stay legal.
Thank you for that information!Just to be clear, I cannot run Windows 7 Pro Retail or Volume License on Windows Server 2016 standard?The web server will be running on CentOS, NOT Microsoft, so I don't think there's any worries there. I believe I need a copy of Office Pro that is legit and can be ran on the Windows VMs.Kevin, you said: " if you want to host desktop type environment, look at windows multipoint server role in windows server 2016. you'll need RDS CALs for each user."I'm reading about the multipoint server role, but it's a bit confusing for me, maybe because I mostly use Linux. You're saying install Windows Server 2016 standard on the server, then in a virtual machine, install Windows Server 2016 multipoint server role in a virtual machine? Then we can connect to that VM and install Windows desktop inside a VM running in the multipoint server VM?The RDS CALs allow me to connect remotely to...the Windows Server or to the Windows VMs or both? I could probably get away with installing the actual SolidWorks stuff on Windows Server 2016, but then I'd need Office Pro installed on the Windows Server.Overall, could you give me just an idea how much something like this would cost, with the setup you recommended? So I'm fully legal and doing everything correctly?
That's correct, I said I have a volume license key. So does that make it illegal for me to have this server with Windows Server 2003 installed, even if it's just to play around with for a few days? The business gave my friend the server after they decomishend (but kept the license active) and then he gave it to me. Last thing I want to be doing is breaking the law. I wanted it to check out a server edition and see how it ran. All my workstations and servers are busy, so I can't really install a trial version of 2016 on them. And this server is way to old to run a newer OS. It's having a hard time just running 2003 SBS.
It's not for a single user, we'll be connecting mostly remotely, but sometimes locally.The 2003 isn't for production use, it's to play around with a server edition and see what it's like. It's going to get wiped and I'll install Linux on it in a bit. It was to test out a server edition for the first time without having to wipe any of my servers or workstations that took a long time to setup, configure, secure, etc. Something I'd rather not do again, unless I absolutely had too, especially to test just an OS for a few days.So running Windows in a VM for a couple users who are connecting remotely is fine? Or it's illegal without a VDA? What constitutes a user? Say we install a program that needs a dedicated user account, but no physical user ever logs in. Does that count as an additional user, seeing how there is no user, just a user account that a program uses to login and interact with the desktop / certain services / etc?Thanks! 2b1af7f3a8
