How can I migrate shares and their data between servers?

Microsoft provides the Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit (FSMT), which you can download from Here . The tool lets you migrate shares and data from any server running Windows NT 4.0 or later to a Windows Server 2003 (or Windows Storage Server 2003) machine.

The utility also interfaces with DFS, which lets you maintain the original UNC path of the data and avoid complications with accessing data once it has been migrated. However, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition lets you maintain the original UNC path, and if the old UNC path doesn’t need to be maintained, DFS isn’t required.

When you attempt to install Office 2003 on Windows XP, you receive ‘ERROR 1921’?

While installing Office 2003 on Windows XP, you receive a message similar to:

ERROR 1921
Service ‘MDM’ could not be stopped. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to stop system services.

This behavior occurs if the Machine Debug Manager service is not configured to start automatically.
To resolve this problem:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.
2. Type the following command and press Enter:
REG ADD “HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesMDM /V Start /T REG_DWORD /F /D 2
3. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.
4. Install Office 2003.

Are there any registry keys or files that the account specified for a performance alert requires?

When you create a performance alert, by default it runs as the Network Service account. However, you can specify a different account for its execution. If you specify another account, ensure that the named account has the following rights:

* Read access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPerflib
* Full Access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesSysmonLog and its subkeys
* Read access to the files %windir%system32PERFC*.dat and %windir%system32PERFH*.dat
