Problem bringing up Group Policy on Domain Controller

I loaded the Group Policy snap in on my xp machine and got the following 
error on my Server 2000 domain controller:

"The following entry in the [strings] section is too long and has been 
truncated"  error message when you try to modify or to view GPOs in Windows 
server 2003, Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000.

This is a well-documented and there is a hot fix.  After I applied the hot 
fix the error was gone, but I still cannot access some group policies.  Why 
and what can I do.  My boss likes to work ar the server console and he cannot 
do that and is furious.

Having problem of Outlook not receiving new e-mails
I have been using Outlook for over 1 year with Comcast Broadband. Suddenly last week, I received a message that Outlook 2000 was experiencing a problem when receiving new e-mails and was going to shut down. I re-opened Outlook and it looked different and then it asked for me set up a profile and I canceled it. But after that window coming up a couple of times after it shut down, I decided to put in a new name and then I could not get to my old e-mails and it acted like a new set up. Then I really got frustrated. I was eventaully able to get back to my old e-mails and have been able t...

How to export policies to excel
Hello All, Our organization has an in-house security tool that generates a text file with lists of policies and violations. A VB script reads that text file and populates certain cells on an excel file. There is one column for each db and one row for each policy. All are SQL 2000 and 2005 version. New policies are not covered by the tool. So it needs to be tool+manual scrips, or PBM, maybe? I wonder if it can be done through Policy Based Management. I am not sure how easy to generate a similar excel file out of SQL Server policies. Has anyone used Powershell and/or Report...

Controlling multiple TCP connections from Outlook 2003 clients
I've noticed that Outlook 2003 clients can have multiple TCP connections to the mailbox store on Exchange. As the following web link claims: "This behavior is by design. Outlook can open multiple connections to parallelize its data communications with the Exchange server. The actual number of connections will vary according to the version of Outlook that you're using and the mode in which you're using it. For Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 in Cached Exchange Mode, you'll see four connections for the mailbox, ...

Help! Problem Referencing Excel 2003 in VB.NET
I am using Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition to develop some VB.NET code that manipulates Excel files. I am developing on a Vista/Excel 2007 machine, but I need the code to work on an XP/2003 machine as well.

Interesting Solver problem (Solver encounters an error)
Here's an interesting problem, I wonder if anyone has any thoughts o this. Recognize that my real problem is very complex (severa intermediate calculation including some iterative steps), but th problem I'm having seems similar (conceptually anyway) to this simpl problem.

Limiting CRM application ability to aasigning user to approprite CRM security group
IT administrator that I have for client does not like the idea of CRM application assigning user group automatically. They prefer to do the security group assignment manually. Is this possible? What do I need to do to achieve that? Thanks Kyaw Hi Kyaw, I did it the following way for a customer: 1) You will need to precreate the five groups within your AD. There is no need of having a own OU (Container, Organizational Unit) for them. Follow the naming convention of your company or use the default namings from Microsoft for the five groups. There is no need for your AD Admin to assig...
