...if we have any here. I have a couple servers that refuse to allow my admin account control over the services. I do mean ANY services. I can't even start Windows Installer. HELP!
-Domain controllerSportyChick said:Can you answer these?
- is it a member server or domain controller
- are you using a local admin account to login or a domain admin account
- is it on the domain
- what error are you getting
- are you logged into the domain or the computer
I get that error on any service (that was in my first post) that I try to start/stop/restart. This includes *gulp* backup services. I've been using a remote backup, but it's gotten finicky as well. FYI when trying to install something that uses Windows Installer, it doesn't actually give me an error, it just sits and sits and sits and sits... Some services start on boot-up like they're supposed to, which is even more baffling to me. As a DC, they're working just fine, but I have absolutely no control over anything they do service-wise. kinda frustratingSportyChick said:What service did you get the error on?
Is this your only domain controller?
Whoh, if you dcpromo that thing out of the domain... and it's on a company network, you're going to screw everyone up.SportyChick said:What I would do is run through dcpromo and take it out of the domain and then run it again and put it back in the domain
Bock919 said:It started after loading the AV program, but I don't know if that is necessarily related. I put SP1 on at the same time as the AV program, then I rebooted the server. Now, of course, neither can be uninstalled since both require Installer to uninstall or install.
I might actually be okay taking it off the domain temporarily since everyone will just go to the other server for backup. All the same, I'd rather avoid this if possible.
Bock919 isn't the "dork", it's the crap-ass Windows Server 2003, all Microsoft products are CRAP! Well at least server stuff, that's why we don't use it here at work.ragdoll said:Speaking from past experience, don't do a Service Pack for Windows and install a program at the SAME TIME YA DORK! Ha, that HAS to be the problem.
If you don't even use it, why are you give him advice?? haha....don't hurt me.SportyChick said:Bock919 isn't the "dork", it's the crap-ass Windows Server 2003, all Microsoft products are CRAP! Well at least server stuff, that's why we don't use it here at work.
