Are you getting the below error when installing Windows Management Framework 3 on your Windows 2008 SP2 Server?
Well, all you need to verify is the current version of your .NET Framework. To verify the current version; proceed to the registry
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP
The branch is most likely only upto V3 or V3.5
Download and Install .NET Framework 4 and your system will be ready to Install the Windows Management Framework 3

Please note that in future versions of Windows, Microsoft might remove the Netsh Functionality for DHCP Server. The recommended usage is with Windows Powershell. We will explore that in a later post.
In this example I have considered DHCP Server as \\mydhcpservername and scope as 192.168.0.0
Run Command Prompt
c:\>netsh netsh>dhcp netsh dhcp>server netsh dhcp server>\\mydhcpservername netsh dhcp server>show scope 192.168.0.0
Changed the Current Scope Context to 192.168.0.0 Scope
netsh dhcp server scope>show client 1
The above command will list the following in the below order
- IP Address
- Subnet Mask
- MAC Address
- Lease Expiry
- Type of Lease
- Name of Connected Device
You cannot use the Get-ADComputer Powershell cmdlets on a Windows 2003 Server; you can instead run it from a member Server running Windows 2008 R2 or above / client machines running Windows 7 or above
There are a series of steps to follow before you can achieve this
- Your Domain Controller running Active Directory on Windows 2003 should be minimum on SP2
- You will need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 on your windows 2003 Server
- Download and Install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service
- When installing if you locate below error in log file you will need to download and install a hotfix

- Link to Hotfix for correcting above mentioned error
- Restart the Windows 2003 Server

Access Based Enumeration or ABE as it is known sometimes, is a very handy tool to Administrators. Many a times, at workplaces, an IT person is always faced with users who have prying eyes on accesses that he/she does not have. Like me, many of you may have had experiences where the users come over and request for accesses to Shared folders that they really do not need access to. This led me to think of a way where we can avoid such situations. This is when I got to know about ABE. The feature just hides the folders that users do not have access to. This way users are only going to see folders that they have access to. The other folders are hidden and out of their attention too!
To enable ABE on Windows Server 2008 / Windows Server 2008 R2
1. Open Server Manager.
2. Scroll Down to Share and Storage Management.
3. This should list down all the Shared folders that are currently running on the right window pane.
4. Right click on the required share folder and click Properties.
6. Click on “Enable access-based enumeration”.
