PCAnywhere 9 has been installed on a server.  During installation phase it
offered to upgrade to version 9.2  thru internet then to restart the
computer.  On the first server it worked.  But, on another server (same as
the first with Windows 2000 server) for some reason internet was disabled
and it let the version 9.0 instead 9.2 then as usual I restardted the
computer immediatly after the installation.  But, this time a strange series
of caracters appeared on the logon windows so it was not possible to enter
in windows.

TO resolve the problem I used other profiles and even ERD but a new problem
occured : the logon screen now appeared but the keyboard is not anymore
available (the mouse still available though and the keyboard is working in
DOS)

Even in any other mode (as safe mode) the keyboard is dead.

any advice ?

thank you

Thomas

I've had quite the same problem with win2000 pro and win2000 avd
server when using PCanywhere 9.0: a logon box with strange
letters and no way to log on. But I didn't succeded in rescueing
the system even with ERD. I had to reinstall it all again.

I will try PCanywhere 9.02 and let you know if it still hangs
up. At the present time I use VNC wich is good enough for my use.

I installed PCanywhere 9 and after rebooting my machine I recieved the same
Logn dialog box problems. I was able to boot in safe mode and uninstall the
software. This software is supposed to be certified for Windows 2000. If
anyone figures out how to get it to work please let me know.

The certified vversion is 9.20. You need to uninstall it. Then re-install
again but don't restart the system, just go to liveupdate.  It will upgrade
it to ver9.20 then restart.

Version 9.2 is will work on W2K not v9, the Symantec site is quite specific
about this.

Ok, we've got the point.  But when it is too late Symantec should be more
specific about such an important thing.  Now, we can't reverse the process,
the server is a total lost.  A small notice on the web site warn us but
that's all...  it is not sufficent.    However, I've red this notice prior
to install the software.  But under a proxy liveupdate wasn't able to reach
the web so I had to reboot.  I know now I didn't choose the right path but
once again, something in the installation process should prevent a so
desastrous event to occur.  It is simply not responsible from a large
corporation to avoid custommers security that much.

It is an opinion, but regardless how good is the software, PCAnywhere is a
usefull tool, they should take care of  how they organize their information.
This warning should have been placed before everything !  Peter Norton will
not come to help me fix up  everything.

The evaluation version is identical than retail version except for the 30
days expiration period.

Why are you using PCAnywhere when you could install Terminal Server in
Remote Administration Mode?  I use PCAnywhere to remotely manage my
NT4 Oracle servers, but I use Terminal Server to manage the Win2k
servers.  Works really well.

Little correction to my former post: You should read version 9.2
instead of 9.02 of PCanywhere.
I tryed to update PCanywhere 9.0 to 9.2 using the update file
UP92.EXE but it didn't work correctly (error messages at startup
and no way to start PCanywhere, exception xxx:xxx in...dll). I
uninstalled it all and made an installation of the PCanywhere
9.2 version and everything semms now to work correctly.

Maybe bacuse you cannot manage remote w2k pro machine with TS :-) But
you can use Netmeeting to do that!

The fact that live update wouldn't work through your proxy maybe due to the
proxy you run, I use LU via proxy it works fine.
I don't think that Symantec should be expected to do more.
Their web site is quite specific sbout which version runs on W2K.
The patch is not just available via LU but can be downloaded via FTP & moved
onto the machine via whatever means at your disposal.

I think that it is unfair of you to blame Symantec for the shortcomings of
whoever installed this software, as despite reading the warning on the web
site, they chose to ignore it & reboot!

You're right, Symantec offers a better service than most and their knowledge
base is not perfect but may help.  I went too far in the matter.  But, I
hold my position : the warning is not as serious as it should be.  We're
talking about destroying an OS.  No matter what you say, for me the only
good warning for such an important event is a dedicated message not a readme
file in which it is mentioned among everything else.  However, people don't
go visit a web site before to install a software everytime they have to.

This software has the Windows 2000 logo.

I will be more carefull next time prior to install anything.

1. Schema Update + pcAnywhere

I get the following error message while trying to create a
new attribute in my AD schema...

Schema update is not allowed on this DC because the DC is
not the schema FSMO Role Owner.

I tried searching through MS Support but it appears to be
down. I am trying to make available ADS authentication to
my pcAnywhere users by following the "Windows 2000 Active
Directory and pcAnywhere" whitepaper found on Symantec's
website.

WIN2K server with SP2 across the board and pcAnywhere 10.5
beta 4. I know I am using a beta but I can't even complete
the AD portion of this document.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
