Setting up a DHCP Server

This will serve as a step-by-step guide on how to setup a DHCP server. Installing the DHCP server is made quite easy in Windows 2003. By using the "Manage your server" wizard, you are able to enter the details you require and have the wizard set the basics for you. Open to "Manage your server" wizard, select the DHCP server option for the list of server roles and press Next. You will be asked to enter the name and description of your scope. Scope: A scope is a collection of IP addresses for computers on a subnet that use DHCP.

The next window will ask you to define the range of addresses that the scope will distribute across the network and the subnet mask for the IP address. Enter the appropriate details and click next.

Page 20

N+ Journal

You are shown a window in which you must add any exclusions to the range of IP addresses you specified in the previous window. If for example, the IP address is that of the company router then you won't want the DHCP server to be able to distribute that address as well. In this example I have excluded a range of IP addresses, to, and a single address, In this case, eleven IP's will be reserved and not distributed amongst the network clients.

Page 21

N+ Journal

It is now time to set the lease duration for how long a client can use an IP address assigned to it from this scope. It is recommended to add longer leases for a fixed network (in the office for example) and shorter leases for remote connections or laptop computers. In this example I have set a lease duration of twelve hours since the network clients would be a fixed desktop computer in a local office and the usual working time is eight hours.

Page 22

N+ Journal

You are given a choice of whether or not you wish to configure the DHCP options for the scope now or later. If you choose Yes then the upcoming screenshots will be of use to you. Choosing No will allow you to configure these options at a later stage.

Page 23

N+ Journal

The router, or gateway, IP address may be entered in next. The client computers will then know which router to use.

Page 24

N+ Journal
In the following window, the DNS and domain name settings can be entered. The DNS server IP address will be distributed by the DHCP server and given to the client.

If you have WINS setup then here is where to enter the IP Address of the WINS server. You can just input the server name into the appropriate box and press "Resolve" to allow it to find the IP address itself.

Page 25

N+ Journal

The last step is to activate the scope - just press next when you see the window below. The DHCP server will not work unless you do this.

Page 26

N+ Journal
The DHCP server has now been installed with the basic settings in place. The next stage is to configure it to the needs of your network structure.

Configuring a DHCP server

Hereunder is a simple explanation of how to configure a DHCP server. The address pool displays a list of IP ranges assigned for distribution and IP address exclusions. You are able to add an exclusion by right clicking the address pool text on the left hand side of the mmc window and selecting "new exclusion range". This will bring up a window (as seen below) which will allow you to enter an address range to be added. Entering only the start IP will add a single IP address.

DHCP servers permit you to reserve an IP address for a client. This means that the specific network client will have the same IP for as long as you wanted it to. To do this you will have to know the physical address (MAC) of each network card. Enter the reservation name, desired IP address, MAC address and description - choose whether you want to support DHCP or BOOTP and press add. The new reservation will be added to the list. As an example, I have reserved an IP address ( for a client computer called Andrew.

Installing Active Directory

Here is a quick list of what you must have:

An NTFS partition with enough free space An Administrator's username and password The correct operating system version A NIC Properly configured TCP/IP (IP address, subnet mask and - optional - default gateway) A network connection (to a hub or to another computer via a crossover cable) An operational DNS server (which can be installed on the DC itself) A Domain name that you want to use The Windows Server 2003 CD media (or at least the i386 folder) Brains (recommended, not required...)

Running DCPROMO After completing all the previous steps (remember you didn't have to do them) and after double checking your requirements you should now run Dcpromo.exe from the Run command. 1. Click Start, point to Run and type "dcpromo".


The wizard windows will appear. Click Next.

3. In the Operating System Compatibility windows read the requirements for the domain's clients and if you like what you see - press Next.

Page 29

4. 4. Choose Domain Controller for a new domain and click Next.


Choose Create a new Domain in a new forest and click Next.\

Page 30

N+ Journal


6. Enter the full DNS name of the new domain, for example - - this must be the same as the DNS zone you've created in step 3, and the same as the computer name suffix you've created in step 1. Click Next.

This step might take some time because the computer is searching for the DNS server and checking to see if any naming conflicts exist.

Page 31

N+ Journal
7. Accept the the down-level NetBIOS domain name, in this case it's KUKU. Click Next


Accept the Database and Log file location dialog box (unless you want to change them of course). The location of the files is by default %systemroot%\NTDS, and you should not change it unless you have performance issues in mind. Click Next.

Page 32

N+ Journal
Accept the Sysvol folder location dialog box (unless you want to change it of course). The location of the files is by default %systemroot%\SYSVOL, and you should not change it unless you have performance issues in mind. This folder must be on an NTFS v5.0 partition. This folder will hold all the GPO and scripts you'll create, and will be replicated to all other Domain Controllers. Click Next.

10. If your DNS server, zone and/or computer name suffix were not configured correctly you will get the following warning:

Page 33

N+ Journal
This means the Dcpromo wizard could not contact the DNS server, or it did contact it but could not find a zone with the name of the future domain. You should check your settings. Go back to steps 1, 2 and 3. Click Ok. You have an option to let Dcpromo do the configuration for you. If you want, Dcpromo can install the DNS service, create the appropriate zone, configure it to accept dynamic updates, and configure the TCP/IP settings for the DNS server IP address. To let Dcpromo do the work for you, select "Install and configure the DNS server...". Click Next. Otherwise, you can accept the default choice and then quit Dcpromo and check steps 1-3. 11. If your DNS settings were right, you'll get a confirmation window.

Just click Next. 12. Accept the Permissions compatible only with Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 settings, unless you have legacy apps running on Pre-W2K servers.

5. Click View > Tree. Now type the distinguished name path of the deleted objects container in the domain where the deletion occurred, and then click OK.

Note: The distinguished name path is also known as the DN path. For example, if the deletion occurred in the petri.local domain, the DN path would be the following path:

6. In the left pane of the window, double click the Deleted Object Container. Note: As a search result of LDAP query, only 1000 objects are returned by default. For example, if more than 1000 objects exist in the Deleted Objects container, not all objects appear in this container. If your target object does not appear, use NTDSUTIL, and then set the maximum number by using maxpagesize to get the search results. 7. Double-click the object that you want to undelete or to reanimate. 8. Right-click the object that you want to reanimate, and then click Modify.

10. After you reanimate the objects, click Options > Controls and click the Check Out button to remove (1.2.840.113556.1.4.417) from the Active Controls box list.

11. Open Active Directory Users and Computers, and reset the user account passwords, profiles, home directories and group memberships for the deleted users. You need to do this because when the object was deleted, all the attribute values except SID, ObjectGUID, LastKnownParent and SAMAccountName were stripped. 12. Enable the reanimated account in Active Directory Users and Computers.

Note: The restored object has the same primary SID as it had before the deletion, but the object must be added again to the same security groups to have the same level of access to resources. The RTM release of Windows Server 2003 does not preserve the sIDHistory attribute on reanimated user accounts, computer accounts, and security groups, however, Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 does preserve the sIDHistory attribute on deleted objects.

Configure TFTP.
The TFTP Server runs in a background mode, it does not have any user interface. There are number of ways to monitor and configure your server:

TFTP Server Configuration Manager Service Manager Log Files Windows NT/2000 EventLog

TFTP Server Configuration Manager TFTP Server Configuration Manager is a special utility intended for TFTP Server configuration. You can run the TFTP Server Configuration Manager from the WinAgents TFTP Server group in Start menu. The main window of the application contains four property sheets allowing you to manage different aspects of the service configuration.

Figure 1. TFTP Software Configuration (page 1).

The first page allows to configure basic parameters of the TFTP software. You can specify TFTP root directory, port which the TFTP Server will listen, timeout and number of retries here. On the first page you can specify if the server will overwrite existing files during write requests. In addition you can increase base priority of the server process usgin the 'High priority level'

checkbox. It will make the server more efficient under heavy load. Finaly, you can specify TFTP options supported by the server. Currently, the following options are available:

timeout - allows the server to accept tftp timeout setting from tftp clients. blocksize - allows the server to accept size of transfer blocks setting from tftp clients. TFTP protocol uses 512-byte blocks to transfer data by default. However, tftp clients can request to use large blocks in order to increase performance. tsize - if this option supported, tftp clients can request size of fiel before the transfer will start.

Figure 2. TFTP Server Configuration (page 2).

The second page allows you to configure access rights based on the clients IP addresses. There are two sorts of access rights available: default rights and per-client rights. The server applies default rights until the client has per-client rights. The following rights are available:

No access - client does not have access to TFTP server Read - client can only read files from TFTP server Write - client can only write files to TFTP server. Read/Write - client have both Read and Write access to TFTP server

We recommend to specify No Access by default and grant neccessary access rights only to restricted set of TFTP clients.

Page 61

N+ Journal
Also, you can add exceptions to the default rule. After you click 'Add' button at the bottom of the exceptions list, you will get the rule editing dialog. It allows you to configure custom access right for specified network or single IP address. The Figure 3 illustrates the rule editing dialog.

Figure 3. Editing IP-based access rule.

The fourth page allows network administrators to specify UDP port range used by TFTP Server to transfer data. TFTP protocol uses fortuitous UDP ports for client sessions. It makes hard to specify firewall rules permitting traffic to TFTP Server. This page helps to restrict port range and makes possible to describe incoming TFTP traffic on firewall.

Figure 4. TFTP Server Configuration (page 3).

Page 62

N+ Journal
The fifth page allows you to define logging options. You can turn logging on by clicking 'Write Log' checkbox on the first page. In case you want to log server messages, you should specify directory where the logfiles would be stored. Also, you can specify the number of logfiles in the directory, logging level and timestamp type. The service rotates logfiles if the number of logfiles you specified are exceeded.

Figure 5. TFTP Server Configuration (page 4).

Service Manager Service Manager allows you to manage the state of your TFTP Server. Please see special page for more information related to Service Manager. Log Files During the operation time, the TFTP Server writes information messages into the logfiles. You can view these logfiles using any text viewer. The logfiles contain timestamped text messages. The server uses UNC timestamps, so you should apply timezone offset in order to get local time related to appropriate message. For example, the text log can contain the following strings: 2002/10/15 12:03:41 2002/10/15 12:04:44 2002/10/15 12:04:44 2002/10/15 12:18:27 2002/10/15 12:18:27 UTC UTC UTC UTC UTC [1896/1776]: [2248/1896]: [2248/1896]: [2248/1896]: [2248/1896]: Listener stopped.

Windows NT/2000 EventLog The TFTP Server uses Windows NT/2000 EventLog to write most critical messages. You can view EventLog using EventLog Viewer utility. TFTP Server messages have source named 'TFTPd'. Please refer to EventLog if you do not have any messages in TFTP Server logfiles - it will help you to solve the problem.

Install And Configure FTP Server

IIS is not installed by default during a standard installation of Windows Server 2003, and if you installed IIS using Manage Your Server as described in the previous article this installs the WWW service but not the FTP service. So before we can create FTP sites we first have to install the FTP service on our IIS machine. To do this, we need to add an additional component to the Application Server role we assigned our machine when we used Manage Your Server to install IIS. Begin by opening Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and selecting Add/Remove Windows Components. Then select the checkbox for Application Server:

Click Details and select the checkbox for Internet Information Services (IIS):

Page 65

N+ Journal

Click Details and select the checkbox for File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Services.

Click OK twice and then Next to install the FTP service. During installation you''ll need to insert your Windows Server 2003 product CD or browse to a network distribution point where the Windows Server 2003 setup files are located. Click Finish when the wizard is done. Page 66

Creating an FTP Site

As with web sites, the simplest approach to identifying each FTP site on your machine is to assign each of them a separate IP address, so let''s say that our server has three IP addresses (, and assigned to it. Our first task will be to create a new FTP site for the Human Resources department, but before we do that let''s first examine the Default FTP Site that was created when we installed the FTP service on our machine. Open IIS Manager in Administrative Tools, select FTP Sites in the console tree, and right-click on Default FTP Site and select Properties:

Just like the Default Web Site, the IP address for the Default FTP Site is set to All Unassigned. This means any IP address not specifically assigned to another FTP site on the machine opens the Default FTP Site instead, so right now opening either, or in Internet Explorer will display the contents of the Default FTP Site. Let''s assign the IP address for the Human Resources FTP site and make D:\HR the folder where its content is located. To create the new FTP site, right-click on the FTP Sites node and select New --> FTP Site. This starts the FTP Site Creation Wizard. Click Next and type a description for the site:

Page 67

N+ Journal

Click Next and specify as the IP address for the new site:

Click Next and select Do not isolate users, since this will be a site that anyone (including guest users) will be free to access: Page 68

Click Next and specify C:\HR as the location of the root directory for the site:

Click Next and leave the access permissions set at Read only as this site will only be used for downloading forms for present and prospective employees: Page 69

Setting up Windows 2003 as a Terminal Server

Open the configure your server wizard from Administrative Tools and in the select a role section, choose Terminal Server and click Next twice to confirm your actions. The wizard will then start to install the required files and warn you that the machine will have to be restarted during the installation process. Close any open programs and click OK.

The installation will continue for a few minutes before the machine is restarted. After the machine has booted and you logon, you are presented with a confirmation screen that states the computer is now a terminal server.

Page 72

N+ Journal

It is important to take note that a 120-day evaluation period has been allocated for unlicensed clients. If you do not obtain a license within that period then terminal services clients will no longer be able to initiate a session.

This is probably where the most changes have been made. Microsoft have introduced a per user license to add to the already familiar per device method. To make your machine a terminal server license server you will have to install it separately. This can be done from the windows components wizard section in the add/remove window from the control panel.

Page 73

N+ Journal

Once you have installed this option your server will be listed in the terminal server licensing console. You will have to activate the server before it can start distributing licenses. Activation of the licensing server can be done via a direct connection to the internet, a web browser or over the telephone. The following is a screenshot of the terminal server licensing console demonstrating what you would have to do to start the activation process.

This will bring up a wizard asking you to enter details and select options to suite your needs. Follow the on screen instructions and press Finish when you are done. Terminal Services Manager When you select the server name you can choose to view and manage the Users, Sessions or Processes tab. The green icons indicate that the server is online. If you had to disconnect it, the icons would be gray. The Users tab allows you to see who is connected, how long they have been connected and the state of their connection. If you select a user and right click you can disconnect or reset the users session, send a message (which will be displayed as a pop-up message box on the client side), view the status or log the person out of the terminal server session. The Sessions tab permits the viewing and control of the terminal server sessions. You can right click a session and select the status to see the incoming and outgoing data or reset to reset the session. The processes tab shows all the processes that are running and which user they belong to (this is a simplified version of the processes tab found on the windows task manager). Select a user, click the right mouse button and choose end process to kill the process. The image below shows the Terminal Services Manager with an active connection initiated by a user (andrew).

If you select the RDP-Tcp#12 (username) option you can view the processes and session information specific to that user. Note: The #12 number will be different for each session. Favorite servers will list all the servers that you have added as a favourite - you can do this by right clicking a server and selecting add to favorites. Page 75
