How to secure log into the windows 2003 server
Part-1: How can you ensure a secured log in to the server of an organization with roaming users?
Solution: Windows 2003 server has a very good encryption technique called “Encrypting File System (EFS)”. The EFS ensure service is a transparent file encryption service which ensures user its profile security. So having EFS we don’t need to worry about the security. Please let me know if more details are required or I can help you.
Part-2: Where all the user settings stored on a server?
Solution: In a server the user setting stored in registry hive and in the file system there are set of profile folders stored. These both (registry hive and set of profile folders) save user all configurable settings. We can uses these settings on other computers as well.
The following are some locations where user profiles are available.
For system with fresh Windows 2003 server installation or upgraded from 2000 server, the user profile can be located at %SYSTEMDRIVE%Documents and Settings
For system with Windows 2003 upgraded from NT 4.0, the user profile can be located at %SYSTEMROOT%Profiles
Part-3: What are the new DNS Management features that are added to Windows Server 2003?
The 2003 server provided the couple of new features of DNS.
These features include “Native Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 MP”, “DNS Global Zone Support”, “Windows 2008 DNS Server Support”, “Updated Knowledge Base Information”, and “Coexists with the included DNS 2000 MP”.
The details of these features can be obtained from Microsoft Technet website.
