ServerAtSchool Frequently Asked Questions

Are Windows XP client computers supported by ServerAtSchool?
Yes. When you belong to a primary school, contact us

Are SATA-disks supported in the server?
Yes

Which gigabit network cards are supported?
We have had trouble with the 3Com 3C2000. The bundled driver software comes in source code (which is good) but it does not compile out of the box (which is not good). We did have good results with Intel Pro/1000 MT and GT cards as well as on-board Intel gigabit interfaces.

When doing the Windows Update I get an error message. Why?
You probably did not open the firewall to accept secure http connections on port 443. Check /etc/giptables.conf and adjust as shown below.

When I try Windows Update I get an error message from the site. Why?
We also discovered some trickery on the Windows Update site. It helped us to first upgrade Internet Explorer by downloading SP1 manually and then returning to the update site. HTH

There should be some 'goodies' in \\server\install\goodies but I can not see them.
Oops. It seems that the directories under the goodies directory have no search permissions. A way to correct this is to issue the following commands, at the root prompt on the server. Your input shown emphasised below, using the server praeceptor as an example.

[root@praeceptor root] # cd /home/share/install
[root@praeceptor install] # find . -type d -exec chmod 0755 '{}' ';'
[root@praeceptor install] # _

This changes the permissions on all subdirectories under the directory /home/share/install from 0644 to 0755. Note that there is a single dot between find and -type.
