Dear all, this is giri.
We have got NT server in our office.
1 since I found some bad sectors in one of my client system which was having windows98 operating system.
I replaced with new 80gb seagate harddisk (7200rpm).
I tried installing 98. in the bios my harddisk detected as 80gb, but when i'm doing fdisk it detects as 40gb.
2.Then i tried booting with xp pro media & did 3 partion.(xp pro detects my actual capacity of my hdd (80gb) ).
3. Partition which i made was fat32 , from xp media.
4. Then again i quick formatted my 1'st partion using my windows 98 media and started windows98 Setup.
98 setup failed. giving some error messages during installation & stopped the installation process.
5.Atlast i decide to install xppro in the system & it installed successfully.(installed the os with fat32 filesystem).
6.Everything went fine. when i tried to install the share printer , i was not able to see the shared printer which is connected to my nt server.
i'm able to see the server pc in the my network places .
but the printer which is connected in the server is not showing , when i'm trying to install the printer.(printer is connected to nt server pc and proper sharing is given.with windows 98 it was ok.no problem was there with printing).
network settings including IP Address is same as win98.
7. I thought that it could b a filesystem issue,so i converted the filesystem from fat32 to ntfs for all the partitions.
8.Now when i tried installing the printer from add printer wizard.Still I the shared printer is not shown.the I typed the path of my shaed printer (serverprintername).
Then it asked for NT Server Username & Password.
i gave nt server username as administrator & the password.
Atlast i installed the shared printer.it worked fine.
But after this printer installation, my other clients receiving a pop up everytime, when a printjob is sent to the shared printer.
even a popup is showing in nt server where the printer is connected phisically.
the pop message says the 50th printjob is sent to................. ........ ..
this message is coming whenever a print job is given from any client pc's.we need to pree ok or close the window everytime.
My question is:
how to avoid this popup message ?.
why it happened.( i didn't made any changes in my winNt Server Where the printer is Connected Phisically).
One more issue after changed my os from 98 to winxp pro.
the pc had winfaxpro10.0 installed , & configured as a host for my winfax clients.it configured to print automatically as soon as a new fax comes, and it worked fine with win98.
after the xp installation, after the printer configuration, i installed winfaxpro10.0 and configure a s host for my winfax pro clients.
the pc wher i installed xp pro had win faxpro10.0 server.
i configured for auto print for all new fax messages.
it automatically taken the default printer which i configured.
But auto print is failed.giving error message as unable to connect to the printer or printer not found.....
but i can able to print the fax messages manually.from same pc, from same winfax preview window.
My overall problem which i'm facing is with the shared printer which is connected to my nt server with proper sharing.
Note:No changes made in the Nt server pc.
The shared printer didn't gave any kind of problem when it was with windows 98.
Hope i'll receive a solution for my Big story.
Thank u very much in Advance.
