discovering a server configuration

By odiedog ·
Okay, I have a question for the experts here. I have a windows 2000 server and several windows 98 and windows xp machines. I am not sure how the windows 2000 server was configured. I have no documentation. What I need to know is how do I identify the different parts of the windows 2000 server (DHCP, DNS, IIS server, the users that log in, etc.). I am not sure where to start or what to look for, other than a few basics such as the admin console.

All the items you are looking for should be available from Star>Programs>Administrative Tasks. Administrative Tasks contains DNS, DHCP, Routing and Remote Access, IIS, IAS, AD Users and Computers etc etc

Good luck

And as far as users logging on (logon and logoff history) you'll have to set this up in the auditing/event viewer

Actually I have tried most of these steps. What I am really looking for is for some utilities that will help identify the exact settings of the system. I have a handle on the users through active directory, but I am lost on the settings of DHCP, DNS SERVER, ETC. As I may have said before, the documentation for this system is completely missing.

An application called Aida32 may give you most of what you need. You can download it here:

Hope this helps.
