Installing Legacy Network driver in WS 2003 VM over Hyper-V


When you want install a Win 2003 Server over Hyper-V (win 10) and you see that network card doesn’t works, you need to remove the network card, add a Legacy network card and after use the Windows 7 drivers.

To do that go to Windows 7 machine, find C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and copy the folder dc21x4vm.inf_amd64_neutral_8887242a56ee027e or the same but with differents hexadecimal numbers.

Configure Outlook Anywhere with GPO for Outlook 2003


In Outlook 2003 adm you can´t unfortunately configure Outlook Anywhere settings and I done it with old school procedure:

Open GPMC and make a new GPO, go to GPP and execute wizard, go to fins a a desktop computer with Outlook well configured, and import from  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook\13dbb0c8aa05101a9bb000aa002fc45a the following entries:

“00036623”= Enable Exchange Proxy settings and control various check boxes.
“001f6622″=  For specifying Exchange proxy server name
“001f6625″=  For specifying Exchange proxy server name according to principal cert name.
“00036627”= For Authentication – Basic or NTLM

Take care that is posible that users has various Outlook profiles. Then you need to add the same but changing the registry path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook\13dbb0c8aa05101a9bb000aa002fc45a in subfolder Outlook by other name profile.

Also, you can configure targeting in every configuration path for only apply to users that has an existent profile.

Ah, this gpo is only for user!

Regards and best practices!
