Terminal server memory solutions

Many terminalservers have an memory problem. You easily can write a fix for it with a simple but powerful Windows 2003 server resource kit tool.

  • Then copy empty.exe from the resource kit to c:\scripts\freemem or something
  • Write a batch file c:\scripts\freemem\freemem.bat

Example batch file:

@echo off

c:\scripts\freemem\empty.exe iexplore.exe
c:\scripts\freemem\empty.exe outlook.exe
c:\scripts\freemem\empty.exe winword.exe

Run this script every 30 minutes en you have al lot of extra memory to spent ­čÖé

Also add the /PAE to your boot.ini to get 700mb extra (if you have 4 gig of ram). See this support article

Good luck!

Input Director


About Input Director

Input Director is a Windows application that lets you control multiple Windows systems using the keyboard/mouse attached to one computer. It is designed for folks who have two (or more) computers set up at home and find themselves regularly sliding from one system to the other (and wearing out the carpet in the process!). With Input Director, you can share a single keyboard/mouse across a set of systems. You switch which system receives the input either by hotkey or by moving the cursor so that it transitions from one screen to the other (in a very similar fashion to a multi-monitor setup). The idea being that you can position the monitors from two or more systems in a row and use a shared keyboard/mouse to control all of them.Input Director also supports a “shared” clipboard, in which you can copy data onto the clipboard on one system, transition across to another and paste.

Input Director requires Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4), Windows XP (Service Pack 2), Windows 2003 or Windows Vista. The systems must be networked.

Configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization

Some computers that are joined to a domain are configured to synchronize from a manual time source. Use the following procedure to configure a client computer that is currently synchronizing with a manually specified computer, to automatically synchronize time with the domain hierarchy.

noteNote
For more information about the w32tm command, type w32tm /? at a command prompt or see Windows Time Service Tools and Settings on the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=42984).

Administrative Credentials

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer. To perform this procedure from a remote computer, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group.

To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization

  1. Open a Command Prompt.
  2. Type the following command and then press ENTER:w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
  3. Type the following command and then press ENTER:net stop w32time
  4. Type the following command and then press ENTER:net start w32time

Administrative Credentials

To perform this procedure locally on the PDC emulator, you must be a member of the Administrators group. To perform this procedure from a remote computer, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group.

To configure the Windows Time service on the PDC emulator

  1. Open a Command Prompt.
  2. Type the following command to display the time difference between the local computer and a target computer, and then press ENTER:

    w32tm /stripchart /computer:target /samples:n/dataonly

    Value Definition
    target Specifies the DNS name or IP address of the NTP server that you are comparing the local computer’s time against, such as time.windows.com.
    n Specifies the number of time samples that will be returned from the target computer to test basic NTP communication.
  3. Open UDP port 123 for outgoing traffic if needed.
  4. Open UDP port 123 (or a different port you have selected) for incoming NTP traffic.
  5. Type the following command to configure the PDC emulator and then press ENTER:

    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:peers /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

    where peers specifies the list of DNS names and/or IP addresses of the NTP time source that the PDC emulator synchronizes from. For example, you can specify time.windows.com. When specifying multiple peers, use a space as the delimiter and enclose them in quotation marks.

  6. w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:time.windows.com /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
