Hello guys.

I have installed a Win2K server in my site. This is the configuration.

The server will hold files, share printers and control the access only
authorized accounts will log into the server.
Actually we have a ADSL connection, which must be shared as well via DHCP.
The equipments connected are:
Speedtouch ADSL modem, connected to a Linksys Wi-Fi router, from the router
is attached a cable to a Switch, the server connects via hub, the server
room is not finished yet. So I have plugged a cable from the wall to a hub
in order to continue the network segment.

The Internal server address / (the one configured via TCP/IP properties is
192.168.70.1) full class C, no subnetting
The Linksys router internal address is: 192.168.70.50, full class C, no
subnetting
The ADSL modem IP address : 200.109.233.200 / 22 (or 255.255.252.0)

I can ping the server and the linksys each other. I can surf the web from
the server and the desktops who are connected to the same hub segment.

The problem is when I try to include a desktop or laptop to the domain, I
have decided to run a NetDiag in order to check what is wrong, as you can
see the Domain Controller list test failed. How I can fix this? Thank you
very much in advance! Pablo

This is a classic problem of not using the internal DNS server. In any AD
installation, the internal server MUST be the only one referenced in ALL
machines. This includes the domain controller, member servers, and clients.
Otherwise, numerous issues WILL result from the misconfiguration. Here is a
repost of a snippet I've posted in the past that may help you in regards to
understanding how AD relies on DNS:

_________________________
AD & DNS:
If you have your ISP's DNS addresses in your IP configuration (DCs and
clients), they need to be REMOVED. This is what is causing the whole
problem.

Just a little background: AD uses DNS. DNS stores AD's resource and service
locations in the form of SRV records, hence how everything that is part of
the domain will find resources in the domain. If the ISP's DNS is configured
in the any of the internal AD member machines' IP properties, (including all
client machines and DCs), the machines will be asking the ISP's DNS 'where
is the domain controller for my domain?", whenever it needs to perform a
function, (such as a logon request, replication request, querying and
applying GPOs, etc). Unfortunately, the ISP's DNS does not have that info.

If this is the current scenario, it is highly suggested and recommended to
only use the internal DNS servers on the network that is hosting the AD zone
name. This applies to all machines, (DCs and clients). Believe me, Internet
resolution will still work with the use of the Root hints (as long as the
root zone doesn't exist).

However, for more effcient Internet resolution, it's HIGHLY recommended to
configure a forwarder. If the forwarding option is grayed out, delete the
Root zone (looks like a period). If not sure how to preform these two tasks,
please follow one of the two articles listed below, depending on your
operating system. They show a step by step on how to perform these tasks:

Hello good afternoon to everyone,

I was wondering if it will be a best practice to delete the AD created that
is not correctly working because my Domain Controller list failed and follow
the instructions and create it again? just using the "dcpromo.exe" from the
Run prompt.

Where i can find more documentation? Thank you very much in advance,

Pablo

There's not much documentation on this. There is one about multihomed DCs
(which I posted below), but it does not have enough information in it to
address the issues you are receiving. Believe me, you'll have to take my
word on it. It's wiser to purchase an inexpensive router to handle NAT
functions. Other responses may chime in stating the same fact.

The thing that still worries me is the " DC list test . . . . . . . . . . .

How I can fix that? please check the ip's and DNS are right, what is the
problem with the DC's?


Thank you very much in advance,.

As I previously said, this is a classic DNS misconfigurtion.

Pablo, you MUST remove any external DNS addresses FROM ALL OF YOUR MACHINES.
This includes the 127.0.0.1 and the 200.44.32.12 addresses. If this is your
only DNS server internally, then ALL machines (including domain controller,
clients, member servers, etc) must **ONLY** use this this internal DNS
server, whicih according to the output above, it must only show
192.168.70.10 on ALL machines.

If you would like efficient Internet access, follow my previous post on how
to configure a forwarder.

Once these changes I suggested have been performed on ALL machines (remove
the external addresses too from your DHCP scope), restart the netlogon
service on the DC, and please post back with an updated netdiag /v /fix.

Please also post an unedited ipconfig /all from this DC and from a client
too. I would like to take a closer look at your systems' configuration.

Thanks,
Ace
