Did you manage to solve your problems sandy?

I just have 1 thing that bugs me, when I do an nslookup, I'm supposed to get the following reply:

Server:  dns1.videotron.ca
Address:  24.200.241.37

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    http://www.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
Address:  207.46.18.30
Aliases:  http://www.microsoft.com

instead, I get something like this:

Server:  unknown server
Address:  24.200.241.37

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    http://www.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
Address:  207.46.18.30
Aliases:  http://www.microsoft.com

any thoughts?

k, I managed to fix all my problems, and learned a lot about tools in the process. For the dns records, if you install your 2k3 server as its own dns, it will put in the proper records, so if your records are bad, just delete them and it will create the proper ones.

netdiag and dcdiag were really helpfull. Found them on the microsoft site.

I would not recommend host files since they seem to not work properly. I also put forwarding on my dns server to match my isp so I could access the internet.

Its okay if your not connected to the internet or anything at all (although you migth get that "your not connected" error message), even if you have your dns service installed, just dcpromo and point to your own server and it will install the proper records.

Catch me on msn netnewsnow@hotmail.com if you want to  share more info about it.

Thank you sandy. As for the nic connectivity problem, that is a negative, all is good there. The problem lies in the fact that active directory seems to be having problems when dns records are not properly setup. I believe the same as you when you say netbios kicks in, but it does not go all the way.

About the host files. Thats what the last admin did to resolve the issue, but I know that its not the proper solution since we still have a name resolution problem on the server itself and that replication will sufer. Yes, I could probably install host files on every station and server, but that would not help me understand proper a/d functions regarding dns resolution.

Someone did post some good info on it on a microsoft forum and that cleared up a lot of things. Found the netdiag tool that showed me that the dns resolution was not functionning properly.

What I meant about 127.0.0.1 is that if I install a/c, it asks for dns info, if It cant find it, it will configure it and put in the tcp/ip settings 127, but if I try to manually put 127, I get an error message which I find rather odd, so I usually have to put the dns as the ip of the station itself (which is the dns server also) to resolve it properly.

"Adding a static entry is what I think you would do to manually add another dns server (to hopefully help you answer your question)."
Tried that, but the problem is a/d, when installed, adds records like the following image, which I'm not sure what exactly each does, so I cant just start typing these since I dont understand them.

Thanks for your info.

Thats a good idea, online time. I've noticed that even with professionals, time is of the essence and setting up a live session is near impossible. Anyway, for anyone wanting help or study time:

I've been doing tests on this and I come up with strange results every time.

My first question is: How do you properly install active directory.

This is what I've done.
1- run dcpromo
2- cant find dns server, auto setup
3- system puts by itself in the tcp/ip settings dsn 127.0.0.1, which I understand but cant configure myself, I get the error message from windows.

now, when I log on, I get the first logon that is very long, then the others are fine. My station as the 2k server as dns, a different router, and the 2k dns has forwarding for my linksys router.

Now, how would I go about doing this manually, meaning setting up the dns records. Would I have to do new zone and add my server has the host, copy the same types of records win2k installs with active directory?

For instance, lets say I have a corrupted 2kserver where active directory is fine but dns is bad, how can I setup a second 2k server to be the dns?

TY very much.

Hey guys, I'd like to find out if a particular domain name mx record is going to the right server. I dont have a unix system so I cant use the "dig" command, what would you suggest?

The way I see it, know your stuff first, then go prepare for the exam first.

From what've I've read on this thread, I'm going...

sybex (not indept, good for a first approach)
tcat (indept)
exam cram +transcenders (final approach, supposed to know exactly what the exam is about at this time)

But its up to you. I would'nt recommend anyone messing around lightly with security.
15  General discussions / General Discussion / ipconfig on: February 14, 2005, 10:31:31 AM
Your right, I just remember. Win98, 95a b c have winipcfg. Win98se, nt ws sr, me, 2k and xp have ipconfig.

Thanks.
