    Logging onto NT via DOS

    Locked

    by loadmaster ·

    Hello!
    Is there a generic way to create a DOS boot diskette that will enable you to logging on to an NT Network Server? I’m in despirate need of this. Our Admins are out for the week.
    The version of DOS can be either 6.22 or Win95 7.0.
    Thanks! Paul

      I would format a floppy on a DOS or Windows 95 machine; its important to use format /s (System boot disk). Then go to an NT server and use the Network Client Administrator to make a Network Installation Disk.
      The point is that you can then examinethe Autoexec.bat and look at the syntax.
      Alternatively you go to the Command Prompt and try: Net user /? and see the commands to log on.

      First create a boot diskette with the system files (format /s) on either a DOS or WIN95 machine. Then, go to your server and run the Network Client Administration program, and create a network boot diskette. If you have NETBEUI running on your servers, this is easy, otherwise you have to use TCP/IP which can be difficult – I always use NETBEUI for this purpose. Also, you have to have access to the proper drivers for the NIC that is in the workstation. If these are third party drivers, you have to add them separately. The following Microsoft KnowledgeBase articles have detailed info on how to do this: Q128800 and Q142857. You can find them on the MS TechNet CDs (if you have them) or on the MS support web site. Good luck!
