My server log in details are not functioning well

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I was successful to log in using one of the 2003 Servers with IE6. However when I logged in the 2008 Server with IE8, I encountered a problem; the old page was displayed. Now, I cannot even reboot the servers. I decided to try the “gpupdate” but nothing changed. I found out that there are no problems with the homepage according to RSOP and GPO but then I do not understand why this occurs.

I have checked the inetres.adm file that is on the server but it looks fine to me. I also copied the file to another server, (c:windowsie8), just to be sure it is the right one. However, there is a template that shows the following: 2003 with IE6 works OK; 2003 with IE8 fails; and 2008 with IE8 fails. With these, I assumed that the problem could probably be the IE8. In addition,

I verified the applied GPO and run gpresult but none of this defined such a URL. As I conclude, I use a domain with 2 DCs which are both 2003 and I have many servers which are mixed of 2003 and 2008.

Can anyone assist me on finding out what issue I am having?

Hello Jill,

Sorry to hear your problem regarding server 2008. You can do the methods below to be able to fix your problem and log in successfully on your server:

  • Via SQL server management, install mssql server 2008
  • On the log in windows, type in the CORRECT host name of server management
  • Create a new user for example sql server and so on
  • On your computer, set SQL account
  • Go to manage, and then SQL server
  • Go to  properties and then restart service
  • In administrator group, add SQL server
  • You also need to add MQSSL
  • Restart your computer for changes to take effect
  • Log in again

You can also try to install Service pack 1 as a back up in case the method don't work for you.
