dnsetw.mof not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi. pls i need help here.

    am trying to install dns service on a 2003 server enterprise edition with sp1 but it tells me to put the cdrom with the file dnsetw.mof.

    i have explored the cd and can't find the file. also, i discovered that when the dns service is installed on a server, this file shows up.

    so, how can i do my installaytion now?

  • Hi...


    1. Download Windows server 2003 service pack 1 from Microsoft download to your desktop

    2. Crate a folder on your computer e.g. C:\win2k3_sp1

    3. Open Run form the start menu

    4. Drag and drop the file to the text field in Run

    5. At the end add /X and press enter

    6. You will be asked for a parth for the files

    7. Run your installation of DNS and point to your folder....


    It worked for me...

    I also have the same issue now, first after finding various missing files in Service Pack 2 for the DNS service I'm now stuck on this one which doesn't seem to be findable. I thought it might be inside a file called dnsetw.mo_, but I can't find that either!
