Client not connect to the network.

By estinct ·
1). I am using MS Outlook 97 for my email. Is there a way I can backup all my emails onto the floppy or zip drive? If so, how so?

2).I am installing NT WS 4.0 on my client's machine. I am connecting to the network domain and not to the workgroup. Also I am not creating the new user from the User Manager from his machine. But I do create User Profile in NT Server. I thought I did everything but he is still not connecting to my server.

3). How do I get my Techpoints increase? Whatif my techpoints ran out to 0?

Question 1:
You can export your Outlook folders in outlook to a *.pst file. There probably won't be enough room on a floppy, but a zip drive may do fine.
Question 2:
Check inside your network environment if you've got the same protocols installedon your Workstation as on the server. If ist's tcp/ip without dhcp you will have to assign a valid ip address, if you use tcp/ip with dhcp, you will have to set your WS to obtain an address automatically.
Question 3:
try to answer questions in thedifferent forums. If thay get accepted by the person who asked them, your points will increase.
What happens when you run out off points, you'll have to ask techrepublic, but I guess, what will happen is, when you have a question, you won't have any points to give away and that will make the question low priority among the others.

A comment to the answer regarding question 1:
The user don't have to export to a pst-file.

If it's stored in a personal folder either on the network or the users local HD,
then it's stored in the pst-file.

If the mail resides on the mailserver, create a personal-folder, mark the mailitems you want to move and just drag them to the folder , which is located in the outlook foldertree.

Hello!

1) Outlook stores all your e-mails in a *.PST file. From within Outlook choose the menu TOOLS -> SERVICES and in the dialog window that appears view the properties of your e-mail profile 'Personal Folder' entry. Like this you may see where your *.PST file is located and may copy it by using Windows Explorer... You may want to create a new *.PST by using the 'AutoArchive' feature that is included with Outlook, that moves your older messages to this new file... Take a look in the Help of Outlook for more information about this feature!

2) Have you created an account for your Workstation in your Windows Domain by using the 'Server Manager' tool? Open 'Server Manager' from one of your domain servers and choose the menu COMPUTER->ADD TO DOMAIN... Choose Windows NT Workstation, insert the computername and choose OK. I assume your network configuration is correct...

3) Go to the section 'how do I get more points?' in the following page 'http://www.techrepublic.com/techpoints.jhtml'!

1) Just open outlook and then click on
File-> import/export->
then choose the options to export to a file and select a pst file. Make sure you highlight 'personal folder' /'mailbox' when it asks you what you want to export. Specify a file name for the pst file and specify where you want to store it (zip/floppy etc).
This will back up all your information to a pst file which you can later use to import the data from back into outlook when needed.

2) Using the network icon in control panel :
If you have a workgroup first make sure the workstation is part of that workgroup. Then restart the workstation.
Then if you want to add it to the domain select domain and specify the domain name. then at the bottom select 'add computer to the domain' and give the administrator username and password. It should immediately add the workstation and welcome the workstation to the domain.
sometimes it takes a little while to be able to log onto the domain after you make this change - I have had this problem.
