|Yes i know i am behind the times, BUT i just replaced my NT4 server with a new machine with SBS 2003 R2. Have 3 issues (that i know of :) )|
I have a Windows Sm Bs Svr 2003, running AD, Dlink Router running DHCP and an HP laptop running Vista Business w/SP2, and several XP Pro machines.
Problem 1: The Vista machine will not join the domain. I know how to go through the System Icon and add the domain name, but i get the following error:
"an attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain."
This client can access the network printer.
However, all of my XP Pro machines can join the domain, and access the network resources (shared drives, printers, etc).
Problem 2: The XP Pro machines now take 2 to 3 minutes to finish logging in to the new server, where they use to take 15 seconds to log on to the old NT4 server.
Problem 3: Each XP Pro machine will lose access to the server resources (Shared drives, but not printers) within 24 hours, causing them to have to log off and log back in in to reestablish connectivity.
Would really appreciate any thoughts on these!
