Custom redirection

Tue, 2008-06-17 02:05 by iantheevil · Forum/category:

I was wondering if it were possible to use a GPO to redirect the users' "My Documents" to their home folders but block certain folders such as their "My Music" folder. I don't care too much what they have on their local PC (I'm new to the company and haven't had time to crack down on the users yet :P) but I would like to be able to redirect their personal documents in case of a serious problem. I know I can block their "My Pictures" folder from redirecting but I would like a lilttle more control. I am using a Windows 2003 SBS as the DC and the users are using XP Prof.

Not enough server storage space available to process this command

Mon, 2008-03-31 10:05 by Dan LXIX · Forum/category:

Having had no problems with sharing folders on a USB drive round my small network, I had to re-install XP Pro on one of the PC's, and now I get the "Not enough server storage space available to process this command" error when I try to access the USB shared folders.

I've searched high and low for any info, but the only fix I've found for this - changing the IrpStackSize - hasn't worked.

Can anyone help please?

Vista Remote Desktop slow

Mon, 2008-03-24 14:38 by admin · Forum/category:

In some networks with Windows Vista client computers Remote Desktop can become excruciatingly slow or stop working altogether. If that happens to you, try the following command (as one line) in a command line window or as a Run... command on the Vista client computer:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

If this doesn't solve the problem, undo the change with the following command (as one line), which reinstates the default setting:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

Dear Windows Networking Community,

I very much hope someone can help with this one, as we're starting to go a little mad.

Our networking set up is WinXP SP2 clients to a SLOX (Suze Linux Open Exchange) domain server. SLOX is functioning as a Samba server and NT domain controller. Everything in respect of this set up works fine.

Remote assistance - cannot reach server

Sat, 2008-01-12 12:57 by admin · Forum/category:

This article deals only with remote assistance, not with the normal Remote Desktop.

When you offer remote assistance either through an invitation or directly, you get the error message, "The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable".

First of all, check the target, i.e. the novice's computer, also called the remote desktop server, for the following settings.

  1. Right-click on: My computer
  2. Click on: Properties
  3. Click on the tab: Remote
  4. Make sure the "Allow remote assistance invitations ..." option is selected.

The solution is here:
