network map drive browsing error

March 8, 2010 at 02:25:14
Specs: Windows XP
We have two Office. One office use 192.168.1.1 and another office use 192.168.2.1. We connect both office with wireless bridge connection.
Each office have one server ( svr1 and svr2 ). Now I can’t browse the network map drive at svr1 with name. But I can browse with server IP address.
So would you mind to tell me, how should I solve this problem?

Add the name & the IP address to the hosts file.

Thanks for your reply. If I connect with IP, it is OK. But, if I connect with server name, it doesn't OK?
That two server is not replicate each other. Now I can't create new user at my AD server. So, what will be the problem?

You have a number of issues.

1. when you can access by ip but not name you have no dns name resolution

2. depending on wireless link there may be not enough bandwidth or some communications may be blocked

3. Your two servers are not in the same forest. You may have the same name but unless you added server2 to the EXISTING forest you have two different forests and they will not communicate if same name.

You are not doing wireless bridging if the two segments are in different subnets. Wireless bridging or any bridging for that matter means the two segments being joined are phyically connected but in the same subnet.

Question: Can you ping between servers?

Question: How were these servers setup?
Question: what is the bandwidth between the wireless links?

1. I can ping between servers.

2. At offiec one, we use the SVR1 (Windows Server 2003) with the 192.168.1.1 IP address and it is Domain Controller, DNS Server, Mail Server, SUN Database Server and File Server. We use the wireless connection between two office with D-link DWL-2700AP as a Bridge connection ( 192.168.0.51 IP address for office-1 ).
At office two, we use the SVR2 (Windows Server 2003) wtih the 192.168.2.1 IP address and it is Domain Controller, DNS Server and File Server.We also use the wireless connection between two office with D-link DWL-2700AP as a Bridge connection ( 192.168.0.51 IP address for office-1 ).

3. we use 11Mbps bandwidth between the wireless link

Question: DNS; ad intergrated or set as primary/secondary?

Question: How were these servers setup?
In other words was the second server JOINED to the existing forest?

No replication indicates they are not in the same forest.

Easy test: add a host entry to server1 in dns. Does the entry show up in server2 dns?

Although I add a host entry to server1 in dns, it doesn't the entry show up in server2 dns?

Review the dns event viewer logs for errors. Review the system event viewer for replication errors.

I suspect the 2nd server is not installed correctly. This is why you can't replicate and why a dns entry in one is not seen in the other.

Solution would be to dcpromo down one of the dcs then dcpromo it back JOINING the existing forest [not a new forest]

But review the event viewer logs first for errors that will either confirm or deny my theory. If you see no replication errors on either dc than I am correct.
