to log into my web server or Sharepoint? Has anyone seen this before and is it possible it's actually some internal MS thing that is generating it or whether it really is hackers trying to log into my servers? Graham SivillHi Siv, You are not the only one. If you check the smtp logs, you will find those are attempts to relay via your email server that of course are failing.Marina, Thanks for the advice, makes me feel a bit better. Is there anything we can do to stop these relaying attempts? SivSeveral of the sites I monitor are getting numerous attempts with this as well as other User IDs such pos, cahier, accounting etc. One server recorded a IP address for the inna attempt that is registered in Dusseldorf. Aside from secure passwords are there any other suggestions for
And admin should be trusted enough to have access to those machines, and the local machines SHOULD NOT have patient records on them - those records belong on a Server in a Database of some type, with NO LOCAL FILE's on the workstations. If you don't trust your Admin's, fire them and get ones you do trust. While you can block and admin, you can't keep them out, that's why they are admins.though I agree with the argument here (see my other contribution to the thread), and particularly that 'sensitive information' should be on the server rather than the workstation, I must point out that if it is on the server, and you wish it to be backed up, then 'god' (note, no caps) will have access to it anyway.

My backups just recently started failing! I have checked disk space and I have plenty of space! Can someone tell me whats going on? Here is a copy of the backup log file: ------------------------------- Date: 3/8/2006 User: administrator ------------------------------- Backup Runner started.

of the system over, although the file counts aren't identical. Also, after the problems detailed below, I used the backup program to dump the system state and SYSVOL into a file on the new drive. Next, I swapped the failing disk for the new disk, which came up as C:, and restarted the server. It booted, but I then got a message telling me that the Directory Service can't be started and that I should reboot, press F8 and issue. Microsoft engineers can only focus on one issue per thread.

recovery where you can step back just one hour without files getting too big: Use the Enterprise Manager and create 2 backup devices on a share (FullDB and TransDB or whatever you want to name them). Then configure your backups to do a full backup early in the morning before business starts (clears transaction log). Then configure one backups of the transaction log to overwrite the device at start of business (starts a fresh session) and configure hourly transaction log backups to append during business hours (keeps track of your day). If you want to keep full backups of several days you can create the 2 devices for each weekday (i.e. MondayFull, MondayTrans .)

it since I've resolved it by registry modification. We have a SBS 2003 Prem server that has run for 2 years, backup is to external LTO-2 SCSI Tape drive. last week the backups started failing. The server is about 460GB Total Drive space, 300GB free drive space, tape is cleaned as indicated by the drive, etc Never had a failed backup before last week. In the event value of 300 is equal to 300 MB, and a value of 3,000 is equal to 3 GB. """ I added the registry entery and set it to a value of 3000, rebooted the server and the backups have worked two nights in a row now. The registry key mentioned was not already in the registry. I find it interesting that on a well maintained server, no additional software, other than MS updates, that this could "Happen
Hello, I have an SBS2K3 standard edition,with a SeagateSTT20000A IDE tape drive. I downloaded the hotfix for this drive when I originally installed the OS.

I am covered. And we only have a single server so I do not have a test environment to practice/test a backup. I also found this: In Windows Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 you cannot perform a backup of the System State AND the Exchange IS in one job, due to limitations in the Volume Shadow Copy service (VSS). Which means that it seems I am not covered. So should I schedule two backups and keep exchange on one set of tapes and System State+Files on the other?Please excuse me as this is my first run with SBS. Where is the SBS backup utility? The only thing I see is NTBackup (or what i assume is NTBackup because it is where NTBackup has been ) in Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Backup. And when I look at the Exchange information store it says: Last

First off let me apologise for the long post, but I need to discribe the situation as well as all the trouble shooting steps I've taken to resolve the issue. Situation -> Both in the office and at a client the automated SBS Backups keep failing, with an event 5634 by SBSBackup. This has been going on for about 10 days now. So I applied the patch as discussed in KB 831664, as that seemed to be the problem, and hopefully the fix. It didn't fix the problem. I then configured SBS2003 Backup not to run, and configured NTBackup to run as a scheduled task with the Small Business Backup Script.bks script as the selection as a temp fix
For the last week, the Shadow Volume Service has been stopping. As a result, my backups are failing. If I manually start the service and then do a backup, everything works fine. But before the next scheduled backup the service will shut down and refuse to start automatically. Any ideas what could be going on? There is nothing in the event logs that seems to apply.Let us know what the error backup returns when it can't run.

Hi, I've installed the Windows Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition. I'd like to keep a copy of all emails that are sent through this server. Probably by forwarding them to a mailbox. Only the outgoing emails and not the incoming emails. I know there's an option for you to keep a copy of all emails including the incoming. But I only want to keep a copy of the outgoing emails. Any way to do that?You might want to take a look at SelectiveJournaling for MS Exchange 2000/2003 http://www.ivasoft.biz/sj.shtml

Hi, Everynight at 11pm the sbs (2003) server backs-up to a remote Terrastation ( 4 x 250GB HDs). When the server was first installed a few months ago, all backups worked fine. Then one or two started failing, now almost all are failing to complete. I have pasted below copies of text from sbs backup logs and event viewer application errors. Failures do seem to be occuring for 2 different reasons either 'cant write to media' did not successfully complete. ---------------------- ============================================ NTBackup finished the backup with errors.

Hello, I have been wondering why this server is shutting down. Also wondering why backups jobs setup in the to do list and or the one built into windows keep failing. Maybe the two shutting down and no backups are related? Anyways here is some of the event logs IDs and explaination of those below. I',m pretty has been truncated. Chkdsk can truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.  File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long time.

turned off the SMTP service at least to get a bit of head room. Their
ISP provides email via POP.blahdeblah.com & SMTP.blahdeblah.com. At the
moment its using an SMTP connector which is doing DNS look up.
What I want to do is either a) change the exchange server to use the
POP. & SMTP. accounts on the ISP, then use exchange as a store for the
emails to keep them safe for backups or failing that lock down the SMTP
service tighter than a cammel's bottom in a sand storm :-)
Although I'm not a total newbie to server admin, I'm not *that* far from
that when it comes to server email type things :-)
What I really need to know is, can I just shove in a firewall and block
external connections. Presumably I would have to leave port 25 open
so would appreciate some help . Ran the backup wizard to configure the SBS backups. SBS apparently backs up the Exchange database online as well as doing file level backups of the MDBDATA folder. This virtually doubles my backup data and it seems that my HP dat72 72Gb (compressed) tapes are not being compressed and so are failing at 36Gb. Can anyone help with forcing the drive to use HW ;quot; the problem by reducing the backup data to less than the uncompressed tape limit, ie 36Gb. now it works fine. however, HW compression should take this up to 72Gb this is whats not happening with SBS backups and results in "failure to mount media" errors in the backup log for any backup sets over 36Gb. thing is, if i run a full manual backup of 45Gb, it all works fine so

Greetings, Symptom: My backups are failing on a patched SBS2K3 SP1 system. Overview: VSS records two application events, 6013 & 6006.

The server config has not changed and nothing has been installed or removed. Troubleshooting: KB919023. The only part of the article that seems relevant is the part regarding the writers. I'
