Windows 2003 synchronize with a NTP Server

This info is based on

Stop the Windows Time Service using the CLI.
net stop w32time

You must configure your NTP Servers:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:",",0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
The peer list must be enclosed
Use the 0×8 flag to force W32time to send normal client requests instead of symmetric active mode packets.

Restart the Windows Time Service and then force a sync.
net start w32time
w32tm /resync

Save Netscreen config file from CLI

I've found this deimark's post in experts-exchange that explains how to save the Netscreen's firewall configuration from CLI.

From the webui you can save a copy of the config hen you view it. I would suggest using tftp to do this.

ie set up a tftp server and enter the following commands:

get config > tftp <ip address of tftp server> config-file.txt

Similar to what you would do for backing up and upgrading the screenos image.

Namely to back up:
save config from flash to tftp <ip address of tftp server> <filename>

To upgrade your system:
save config from tftp to flash <ip address of tftp server> <filename> to flash

Modifying the All Users profile in Vista or Windows Server 2008

Después de volverme loco buscando la carpeta Menú de inicio para todos los usuarios en un w2008 he encontrado la solución aquí:

En resumen, ahora la carpeta está aquí: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Para acceder a la carpeta que contiene el menú de inicio para el usuario administrador tienes que ir a C:\Users\Administrador\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

Para acceder a la barra Quick Lunch hay que ir a: C:\Users\Administrador\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
