comment Server Backup reports incomplete backup [0x80070020] due to item in System Volume Information Folder
Welp, I'd say start running it... ;) You are saying you have unexpected file access problems, so a CHKDSK is the first (or one of the first) steps that should be done to confirm/deny file-system corruption. Once you've done that, come back and update your question with the results...

What were the results of a disk/file-system check (chkdsk)?

comment How to find out who deleted event viewer logs
Then they may have destroyed them at the file level. If the user can delete logs and system files, you can't possibly log him using that system... so unfortunately I'd say your out of luck, unless you have some form of external auditing in place, which if you did, I'm guessing you wouldn't be asking us about this. ;)

This isn't accurate for Windows 2003.

comment Named on AIX (5.3) - DIG won't find hosts without FQDN?
Nice info! 5 years too late for me since that server is long dead and replaced, but hey, thanks anyway for taking the time - I wish I could test it to confirm it was my problem! :)

comment User loads temp profile every login
If the user logs into a different computer and it works, then it's just the local profile on that single machine. Delete it and it will be created anew the next time they try to log in.

comment GPMC missing Hide/Show links
Interesting. It was already disabled. I enabled and then disabled it again and that fixed it. Weird. Thanks though! :)

If you access it by its LAN name/IP from within the LAN does it work?

Yes it's possible and pretty easy via Group Policy -- if you're the admin of the AD. Are you?

comment Can see files on server but cannot open them- intermittent
Question about company networks are off-topic for SU. There's just too many variables that you (as an end user) can't test or control to determine if solutions are helping or not, and if you can't provide basic information like the Server OS, then our hands are pretty much tied (IMO anyway).

comment Where, in Exchange, can rules from other sources be removed?
The rules are either server-side, or client-side. So exist either on the Exchange server, or on the phone. Are the messages getting moved BEFORE he checks in (as soon as they hit the server)? Have you checked the Exchange server for server-side rules being applied to his account? Which Mail application is he using on the phone? Have you checked it for rules that may be applied?

comment Change DHCP on server 2k3
If you're also using the server as your clients' DNS (which you should be), you should next look into having DHCP auto-update DNS. It's handy. :)

comment Change DHCP on server 2k3
It's up to you. Personally I apply them at each scope, since often each scope will have different options. Helps prevent surprise settings from the server-level being distributed to a scope you add later on.

comment Need help to understand why server has suddenly crashed
well if you were having trouble accessing the shares, and this error is related to networking and share connections then you either have a faulty network adapter driver, a faulty network adapter, or a faulty network. :) With the details you've provided, it's impossible for us to say.

comment Need help to understand why server has suddenly crashed
srv2.sys is there to deal with SMB - start with updating your network adapter(s) drivers. How many times has it done this? Is it doing it repeatedly?
