Mac Pro :: Server 2003 On 2008 Via Bootcamp

Mar 11, 2008

I've searched high and low and can't find any reports of running Server 2003 on a 2008 Mac Pro via Bootcamp, 32-bit or 64-bit. Has anyone done it? I found a few instances of people having trouble getting it running on MacBook Pros and other systems. I also found an article on a workaround to do it on a MacBook: [URL] Even the 32-bit version of Server 2003 can handle 32GB of RAM via PAE and I have several licenses for it.

Feb 3, 2009

I would like to be able to boot to a ghost 2003 (dos environment basically) to be able to clone NTFS disks without having to go to a pc, but for some reason on the mac pro I can only boot into Windows PE environments or Linux environments boot disks. The ghost 2003 bootable cd just hangs and never loads.

OS X :: Can't Connect To Work Server Sbs 2003

Sep 2, 2010

I've recently bought a macbook and I love it, but am trying to connect to my outlook server and having a few problems. Firstly I can't access OWA through Safari at all, every time I type it in it says 'Safari can't find the server' - it is sbs2003, and this works fine in IE Ideally I wanted to set up access through Mail or Entourage (2008) however I've read that it is not possible to connect to exchange through this. Frustrating as I have just bought this and have a free upgrade to 2011 but only home and student so apparently this won't have outlook on here either. I have been trying to connect for days and I just can't figure out the best way to get to my emails? if you could point me in the direction of a good walkthrough that would be great.

Mac Pro :: Leopard DVD Won't Run In Server 2003 Without Next Tweak

Feb 26, 2009

I'm just posting for the archives my success with installing Windows Server 2003 R2 with SP2 Standard Edition on a Jan 2008 Mac Pro (8x2.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM). I've installed Server 2003 a Mac Mini (1.83 Ghz), MacBook (Late 2006) and an iMac (early 2008) and didn't find the information available online to be greatly helpful, so hopefully this post will help somebody like me sometime in the future. To set up Windows Windows Server 2003 R2 on a Jan 2008 Mac Pro:

Boot OS X and run Boot Camp Assistant as usual. Install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 as usual (comes as 2 discs, but only requires the second disk upon your first successful log in so this isn't a problem with bootcamp). Eject the Windows installation CD in the windows explorer by right clicking the D: drive and selecting Eject.........................

OS X :: OSX Windows Server 2003 Workstation

Sep 6, 2009

I've tried typing some search terms for what I think I want to be able to do, but I'm getting nothing relevant- I figured I'd just spell out my problem on the forums and see if there are any solutions. I work for an EMS organization that has several windows workstations (running xp) that connect to a larger server, which hosts our shared drive ("U") as well as windows specific programs for generating reports. Specifically, one of our call logs is a microsoft access database that is linked via our network to generate a specific reference number for our calls.

Now, I'm moving up in the world and going to be directing human resources and pr for the agency, and while the windows workstations are nice, I am a damn fine mac user and would love to use my unibody 17" pro for the job. Here is where my questions come in. I'd like to use my mac running virtualbox, parallels, or whatever with an xp install to connect to the server and have a typical workstation desktop (the U drive, network attached programs) next to my osx desktop. I know macs can access shared drives on server 2003, but can I set up a virtual machine to emulate one of our workstations?

OS X :: Exchange Server 2003 With MS Entourage (without LDAP)

OS X :: SMB/File Transfer Slow With Windows Server 2003?

Feb 3, 2008

After some searching, I've seen three tricks: disabling IPV6 on the Mac, doing the same on the PC (my Windows Server 2003 installation didn't have it installed), and adding a line to my /etc/smb.conf file. None seem to really give me full transfer speeds.

Are there any tricks specific to Windows Server 2003 or anything new to make this work like normal? It's simple file transfer over SMB, seems like at the 5th iteration of Mac OS X we'd have better speeds.

OS X :: Exchange Server 2003 Supposed To Work With SL (CNet)

Aug 28, 2009

I read this article which explains that Exchange Server 2003 is actually supposed to work: [URL]

Exchange Support
Apple has built in support for Microsoft's Exchange Server 2007. This is what, on a PC, pushes and synchronises all your email, contact info and calendar entries to Outlook and your phone. By doing this, OS X's Mail, iCal and Address Book apps sync up just like Outlook. Note that if your company is still running Exchange Server 2003 (ours is), you will still be able to sync Snow Leopard with your office server. We confirmed this with Microsoft, a spokesperson from which said, "Correct -- it will work with Exchange Server 2003 as well." Our IT boffins here at CBSi confirmed this too. I know it's still early, but has anyone had any luck getting this to work? I'm about 30 minutes away from installing the $29 SL on my laptop. And I'm really hoping to have the ability to eliminate having a PC desktop on at work strictly for the connection to our exchange server 2003.

Software :: Mac OS X Synchronize Time With Windows Server 2003?

Nov 11, 2008

One day the users started to complain that the mac we have can't login to the domain so I sat down for 30-45minutes trying to figure out what had caused it - only to figure out that it was simply because the time was off by 5 minutes so the domain controller refused the connection. Is there a way to syncronize the time?

OS X Server :: OD On OSX Server Vs AD On MS SBS 2003?

Apr 23, 2007

I manage a small network of 15 users, and they all currently have PC's running windows XP Pro SP2. There is 1 accounting server running server 2003 SBS, and a File Server for the Lab running SBS 2003 SP2. There is 1 user who uses RRAS setup via VPN to connect to the files and work from home on weekends etc.. the laptop he has is brand new, setup and managed all his settings so that the environment will be easily manageable. Now, the problem is, intermittenly he cannot connect to the shares, the network goes down, the server hickups, it needs rebooting, its setup properly, everything is ok, it runs good, I upgraded the ram, to 4GB.

this happens waaay to much, and I spend way to much time fixing these issues over and over, from possible firewall issues on his laptop, that have been corrected, to just no connection getting through from him, when clearly most of the time the thing works. The server has not been tampered with at all, neither has his laptop, both systems are 100% virus/spyware/bot free............

OS X :: Mac OS X Server Vs Windows 2008 Server?

May 11, 2008

I'm considering adding another Windows Server to our network (Windows 2008 Server); however, I like the fact that OS-X Server has Spotlight Server and a Wiki, but I heard that OS-X Server may have some serious problems and glitches especially with SMB or file-sharing for Windows. I'll be using this server for our graphics production department which is a mix of OS-X and Windows XP workstations, and I'll be adding to it a multi Terabyte rackmount Raid-drive.Can anyone who is in the advanced Server know-how share some advice to weather I should continue with Windows Server or switch to OS-X Server and why so?

Mac Mini :: Loading Windows 2008 R2 On Server

Nov 13, 2010

I am trying to load Windows 2008 R2 on a brand new mac mini server. I have a USB DVD burner hooked up with the 2008 DVD inserted. I hold down option(alt) and then choose the CD to boot off of. It then said hit any key to boot from CD, I do, then I get a black bar across the bottom that says loading windows files. That bar take a minute or so to completely go to the right, and then the process does not continue any further. I don't really feel like I should need to use BootCamp to complete this as I only want to use this as a 2008 server, and I want 100% of the hard drive capacity dedicated as so. Secondly, does anyone know if I will have the opportunity to set things up to use the two internal drives in a striped RAID 0, and still boot from them?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: MBP 2008 Running Slow?

Jul 5, 2012

I have a 2008 MBP with 4gb of RAM. I upgraded via fresh install to Lion and ever since I've had this computer running literally 1/2 the speed it did on Snow Leopard.  I've tried Googling and done everything everyone was saying to do but no changes. I also noticed that no matter what I do, when I run disk utility and check permissions it comes back with files that have  problems but nothing I do will actually repair them.  I'd also like to know if there is any way to turn off the absolutely dumb full screen apps and mission control and launch pad stuff as i'm sure that all the extra graphics requirements has to be hurting my performance a bit.  I'm not sure what all the desktop developers have been smoking lately but last I checked a computer was not a phone and trying to mimic the interface is just dumb.  There is nothing useful about anything they've done in Lion that I can see.  It all looks cool but trying to use it on a daily basis it just stinks. Even the full-screen apps that I though would be cool stinks because it takes longer to swith from one to the other and you loose the top menu while in it which requires extra effort just to see what time it is.

Also I would like to access my documents and root folders from my profile on the XP work network, without running Parrealells or bootcamp (as I dont want to install XP on this machine). Basically I would like my mac to do everything my profile does at work, but on the OSX platform...

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Join MS Windows Server 2008 Domain

Mar 17, 2012

I recently purchased a new MacBook pro with Mac OS X, I updated the OS to the latest release which is 10.7.3. I need to join (bind) a MS Windows server 2008 Domain, but when I try to bind I get below error:

Unable to add server.

The daemon encountered an error processing request (10002)

I searched the internet for a solution; most suggestions refer to sync the clock with the domain clock as Kerberos protocol is unable to authenticate. I cannot find a option to sync the clock with the domain clock, how I do that?

MacBook :: Visual Studio And SQL Server - How Is Windows In Bootcamp?

Mar 4, 2009

I run a small Web Development business. I use Microsoft tools: Visual Studio and SQL Server (mostly), so the logical choice is to stay on Windows. But I'm not a logical guy. I actually was on the Mac bus not long ago... went through an iMac and then the 13" Macbook. I loved them to pieces, really.After a while, I grew a bit tired of the really small form factor and having to launch a noticeably slower virtual machine to use Windows (I used VMware at the time). I went back to Windows pretty much for business reasons. Now I'm getting the itch to go back to Apple. Why? Their design, look, and feel is a big reason. I also did more exploring when I was on Mac; researching stuff in my field away from the MS world that did open my eyes to new ways of handling development with my business. In a perfect world I would get the 24" iMac but since I run my own business I should stay mobile. Therefore I'm looking at the low-end Macbook Pro. Here are a couple of questions I have:1.) How is Windows in Bootcamp? If I were to go back, I think I would go that route to have as much speed as possible. Especially since the low-end starts with 2 gig ram (grrr)

Software :: Using 10.5.7 VPN To Connect To Windows 2003 SBS?

Jun 15, 2009

I can successfully connect to my work server (Windows 2003 Small Business Server) using the built in VPN utility. That isn't an issue.

However, once connected I have no way to navigate the file system to be able to copy and paste files between our server and my MacBook Pro. I'm not sure why.

When I'm in the office and am connected to our network via ethernet cable and connect to the server via VPN, the different drives show up in the Shared section in Finder.

However, when I connect remotely from home those drives don't show up in Finder.
