Tools to Test Server is Configured Correctly

    Întrebare

  • Hi

    I was wondering if there are any tools that can be run to test that a server / client is set up correctly.

    We recently migrated from windows 2003 to windows 2008 R2 (On New Hardware), we ran the addprep options, migrated the Active Domain, Moved the FSMO Roles Over and retired the old server but we are having some strange problems.

    1) We have a vista machine that can't re-connect to a printer share that it has been using for 2 years (keeps asking for user name and password) it also won't re-connect to all the network drives it had (but if you log onto another machine as the same user name it can get all the drives).

    2) We have 3 windows 7 machines that run A CAD/CAM package that can save drawings to a network drive but can't save the same drawing as a PDF to the Network Drive (supplier insists its a permissions problem),

    3) Two win 7 laptops that refuse to see a new network printer although they can see two that where added last year and everyone else can see the new one.

     

    I have checked permissions and shares and dns setting etc etc etc but can't see anything that I have done wrong. Can anyone suggest a test program that I can run or does anyone have any other ideas as to where to look.

     

    Thank You.

    Did you move the time server role to when you move the DC holding the PDC role, if not you have to do it manually. Also, make sure preferred and alternate DNS server IP is updated in all the domain joined machine.

    The problem is filtered here, so its not a problem with user of profile but with machine.

    You can use Shareenum tool to verify the permission

    3) Two win 7 laptops that refuse to see a new network printer although they can see two that where added last year and everyone else can see the new one.

    Just disjoin the system and rejoin and also verify if same user logins from the different machine getting the same issue, if not then its surely problem with individual machine not with the profile or setting on the printer.

    See my inline comments.

    To test the AD/domain environment, you can use below tool. I think, you na
