This is a common issue with Outlook 2007 and later (I suppose you use one of these versions, because Outlook 2003 doesn't have these problems). It requires a default gateway to be set. Try the registry fix or use the "Fix it" from MS, I'd say.
Since I asked this question we've moved off 2003 and are using User Profile Disks with 2012r2 (they were introduced with 2012): The simpler way is user profile disks. User profile disks store user and application data on a single virtual disk that is dedicated to one user’s profile [...] User profile disks provide an easy way to store the user settings ...
Please re-install the terminal Services, but before that please change ' Restrict each user to one session ' to 'No' and than change it to 'yes' and even if your issue doesn't resolve than only re-install Terminal Services.
I just encountered this problem (Windows updates fail to install or even download on Server 2003 R2) but for different KB numbers. The solution was to stop the Indexing Service via services.msc, then retry the updates. This issue (at least when I saw it) is due to the Indexing Service locking the update.url files. I found that solution at ...
Active Directory runs in-process with the Local Security Authority (lsass.exe) in Windows Server 2003. There's no way to restart it without rebooting. What you're seeing is definitely odd behavior. I'd be checking out the Directory Service and System Event Logs, as well as attempting to run some simple LDAP queries (using the dsquery tool, or the ldp tool ...
No you can't transfer/migrate the CALs to a future version. You have to buy new CALs for 2012 (same as you would have if you were going to 2008). If you bought the CALs with SA (Software Assurance) would be the only exception.
Barring anything else that might prevent bringing the domain up to 2012 functional levels, I would vote to bring the domain up first and then rename the domain. While renaming is supported on 2003 domain/forest functional levels, IMO it would be better to get the domain up to 2012 levels. But it isn't a requirement necessarily...you can do a domain rename ...
See, you were talking about Active Directory migration - suggest you edit your question to include more such details. Have a look at the following articles for some guidance. http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2014/04/02/step-by-step-active-directory-migration-from-windows-server-2003-to-windows-server-2012.aspx ...
I suggest you remove a failed DC, clear it´s attributes from AD with ntdsutil, install new 2003 Server, promove it to DC and seize AD roles to new server.
@amber My fault - you're right - very old versions of w32tm like the one in Server 2003 don't have the /query parameter. I was attempting to verify whether your system really was synchronizing with the navy.mil NTP server or not. You can still go traipsing through the registry to find the Windows Time settings, but I'd rather not. The stripchart verifying ...
