Date:
Dec. 16 2005: (start testing (windows 2000 server (standard))

Slipstreaming and installing, (using nlite v1 rc3) went well.

Dec. 17 2005 (checked windows update)

Found 3 'high risk' security updates:

  • Microsoft - Malicious Software Removal Tool (december 2005)
    This is a normal update, witch microsoft recomends running once a month to check for mallware on your computers, this is NOT to be included in the uSP (it is not a security patch) but you should run this tool, with every new release (once a month).
  • Security update for DirectX-8 and DX-8.1 (2 updates)
    DirectX comes with most vga drivers, (mine came with version 8),
    I do not recoment installing this patch, (you should update to directX 9 instead)

I Found no update for, MS directory service, or IIS (yet); will install those, and check what WUS will tel me after that....

Please dont screw this topic up with repley's like 'Cewl' or 'When will it be released'
you realy should only post in this topic if you have questions or comments on specific things you'd want me to check for, (im testing this on a 'server os', so also please dont asks things like, "wil it work with, my favorite game", (unless its a game server).
I wil NOT, answer any questions other than about, the actual testing,

Thanks for this - I really appreciate your efforts :thumbup

Generally, I included the DX patches for DX7 in USP 5.1 Basic.
Corporate WU doesn't seem to offer (m)any updates for AD that aren't already included btw - just checked :)

Best regards,

update: dec. 17

Installed IIS 5.0, and Windows Media Services,
and also no problems supmerged, the default.asp file caused me no problems,
and my service conected to a domain controler like a charm,

there is 1 minor, flaw in the add/remove software wizzard, but im not sure if it is caused by internet exploeren or by my SIS Driver installer..

it just says
Posted Image
(where x normaly should be the name of the program).
It should be about the size of my 'vga driver install', and it seams to be not a real bigg problem... (but more like a litle anoyance).

Update: - It actualy IS my VGA driver, (just deinstalled it to see what heppens,
(dont ever do this on a production server boys n girls) :P -

Just installed, Active directory service (AD),
with just 1 errormessage about Conection Mangager Component,
wich says it couldn't be modyfied, - (error message 0x80070006)
seams like it was already running at the time it was supposed to be installed,
checking the logs, to see when its installed, (probebly with IIS).

There's a problem with the support tools - don't test those. I believe I know what went wrong.

Does AD require a PDC btw?

yes, AD is required, at least,
> 1 NTFS v5 partion (on the ad-server,
(preferably on a diferend harddisk than the os is on) (!tip:)
> 1 master DNS server,
> 1 primairy domain controler,

and optionaly
> DHCP service
> WinS service

// note that windows 2k on sufficient hardware is realy quit capabel of running all those services on a single machine, - but its usually recomanded to have a 2nd server as a replicator in case your pri- server brakes down...

(!tip:)
personaly i always recommend a disksetup like.
> 7200rpm 10gb harddrive (master: IDE-0) for %winddir%,
> cdrom drive (master IDE-1) for installation
> any kind of tapestreamer (on Slave IDE-0) for backup
> 3x 20gb 7200rpm IDE-raid 5 aray (formated as NTFS v5) -
you nead at least 3disk for raid 5

Hi :)

Fixed the support tools problem yesterday. Also I just added a reg fix for WordPad, a reg fix for the CPU HALT problem, and a hotfix for Japanese IME which I forgot.

Are the servers coughing up blood by now? :rolleyes:

/G B)

PS - Can I dl the VGA driver setup package which shows up as 'x' in ARP somewhere?

90hourst straigh and even managed to sync an AD (of just over 50megg) i know it isn't 20gb like it should have but i dont realy have sucht a large testing machine to build 20gb of shares on a signle volume nor do i have time to create one,

by the way G i didn't even notice support tools hade probs - at least not on my system but i didn't take any time to trash them after you told me about it..

anways. - i havn't realy found any probs that i'd call critical ore dangerous, -

and since i didn't encounter any major probs i dont see why it isn't ready for early adoption -

BUT: i dont recomend it for production yet, (like i said before, the best way to realy test it is to realy run it...in realy would enviroments .
but thats still doesn't mean its enterprice ready...

greatz..

Well first thing I noticed is that Windows Malicious Software Removel Tool - December 2005 (KB890830) is not included in 5.1 . That is, Windows Update reports that it needs to be installed.

have to dis-agrea here,

in short = ms Malware removal tool IS NOT a securty patch
but a 1 time only self-deleting program,

so there is in fact nothing to be slipstreamed - there is 1 possible litle trick you could pull,
you could create a dialog (with a windows critical warning, that they should run MS-MRT from the windows update site

im also thinking of rewriting the welcome to windows stuf,
that appears on startup with new users...

but only if enouth people would like such a thing
(or think it could be usefull).

it probebly would be containing:
> a link to this support forums,
> links to other usefull resources (for windows 2000),
> some notes about the updated files.

and of caurce the - where not liable, and this may brake the MS EULA for your product. etc. etc.

Hey,

i just installed Unofficial SP5.1 but windows still says im using sp4 when i check in system properties

He did not change the system properties text on purpose. Ask him why. ;) I believe mainly to not confuse members. See below as well...

i also tryed to slipstream it in to a cd install of win2k using Nlite everything seems to go alright but when i close nlite and open it again it still says that its win2k sp4 any ideas on how to fix this??

This is an unofficial sp5 not a real sp5 so it still says sp4.

Again he did this on purpose. I believe mainly as to not break compatibility with windows update, as WU would think your running a newer version of win2k and not offer any updates if I understand that correctly. Again ask him for more details. ;)

Well hope that at least gives you an idea. :P

Take Care,

Will

not just 'an' idea but THE idea. - sorry im not going to try and find his orriginal post about this in the 62pages counting USP5 thread of where it al started :D. - but yes it is exactly to prevent it from messing up windows update as wouldn't validate your windows and thus not update it.
