As ClintonN has indicated, my name is correlated with sites like and, due to legitemate discussions that I participate in. It seems that the discussions here are mirrored to these sites. Couple this with the fact that this topic goes on without the benefit of moderators and this could very well be my last post here. Catch me on certcities. c o m, mcpmag. c o m  or certtutor. n e t. They won't get my name associated with mcsebraindumps and

But if you manually install from your converted MSI file, your installation is successful? Right-click on the converted MSI file and select install. If it installs correctly then it should work through Software Installation. The articles I linked to show how to use advanced logging for software installation and group policy, did you try these? Administrator password is another topic.

I believe the users' EFS certificate is indeed stored in 'Application Data' in their profile. So yes...

Mixing lower case letters into your typing is a good start.

Next, can you manually install the application from your converted MSI file? I bet this is where you will find your resoluition.

After that, your configuration of the software installation, file permissions and network connectivity.

5  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / MS Best books? on: February 28, 2004, 11:57:53 AM
This is one of the most often asked questions. It's somewhat difficult to answer objectively. I have used ExamCram, Sybex and MS Press and others. I seldom buy more than one book for a particular exam however. So I cannot really say which one is the best, I can only say I read this book and it was good.

The biggest piece of advice I have to offer is to study from a variety of sources. Yes, you will choose a book to provide the bulk of information on the subject you are learning. This will also act as an outline for your studies, guiding you through from one topic to another.

Where people encounter difficulty is when they finish the book, they assume they are ready for the test. This is where you should be reviewing the exam description and course descriptions for the exam you are studying for. For topics that are not crystal clear from the book or not covered at all, dig down and do some research. Go to the vendor site for the exam you are taking. They typically have a lot of free resources to help you with their product. Third party sites that support or add-on to that vendors product likely also have white papers and knowledge base articles.

I have seldom hear someone totally bash a particular book. In my experience there has only been 1 that I could say I didn't like. Pretty much try to examine serveral books first hand at the book store. Look at the index for the logical structure. Flip to the middle of the book and read the material. Do you like the way the author communicates? Look for additional materials (trial version of the product you are studying, practice exams, ect.) Good luck!

You can just go to Windows Update.
7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Virtual Server Beta on: February 27, 2004, 08:15:45 PM
I like both products. I bought VPC when it was on special from Connectix right before the Microsoft transition. I got to use the VS Preview version and it is real slick. I plan to build a two-node cluster using the beta, before I take 296. Have fun!!!

10  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Exchange server 2000 / help! on: February 27, 2004, 11:32:07 AM
It seems Exchange 2003 sees the 5.5 server as the outbound path. Are you just shutting the 5.5 server down? You are using ADC, correct? What steps are you following to decomission the 5.5 server? I think you need to fing a way to tell Exchange 2003 that the 5.5 server is not going to be there anymore. Check the Exchange 2003 Deployment Guide for information on decommisioning the 5.5 server and moving to native mode.

Also check the Exchange Discussion groups at, they are pretty active. Good luck!

You have experienced this first hand? What functional mode is the 2003 domain in? Never heard of this before. Without trusts, I don't see how it could happen.
12  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Active Directory installation on: February 27, 2004, 11:26:41 AM
Quote from the Windows Server 2003 Deployment Guide:

To prevent single disk failures, many organizations use a redundant array of independent disks (RAID). For domain controllers that are accessed by fewer than 1,000 users, all four components generally can be located on a single RAID 1 array. For domain controllers that are accessed by more than 1,000 users, place the log files on one RAID array and keep the SYSVOL shared folder and the database together on a separate RAID array, as specified in Table 4.3.

Table 4.3   RAID System Requirements

Component     Operations     RAID
O/S           Read and write RAID 1
log files     mostly write   RAID 1
database      mostly read    RAID 1 or 0+1  
SYSVOL        mostly read    RAID 1 or 0+1


If cost is a factor in planning for disk space, you can place the operating system and Active Directory database on one RAID array (such as RAID 0+1) and the Active Directory log files on another RAID array (such as RAID 1). However, it is recommended that you store the Active Directory database and the SYSVOL shared folder on the same drive.

Adsizer is a great tool. Also check the Windows Server 2003 Deployment Guide for general DC capacity planning guidlines.

The Resource Kit on Technet is pretty up-to-date for Windows 2000 and it's free!

Make sure your review the exam objectives for 292 on the Microsoft Website.
15  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-217 / AD Sites on: February 26, 2004, 03:36:01 PM
Domain controllers and maybe other servers with services that register their SRV records in the _sites folder in DNS will appear in AD Sites and Services under a particular site.

As for workstations, sites become important when the client is trying to use site aware applications or recieve GPO applied to the site. About the only thing I can say is to determine what IP address the client recieves in order to determine its site. There does not seem to be a direct correlation between OUs and Sites, unless you create your OU structure based on geography and have sites that correspond to that same structure.

Help us out on this one George?
