  • Domain wouldn't die

    We have recently built a new domain but when we built it, the old one was still running and even with working with different ip ranges, somehow the old domain name seems to appear even after we got rid of the servers and rejoined all of the clients to the new domain.

    when I search with network places it comes up 2 domains and when you go into either it has the same PC's listed.
    what on earth has happened?, Ive tried scavenging and looking for any old dns records with the old domain but nothing, it seems to be there still a good 2 months after we got rid of the old domain.

    this is a new topic, so I have split your reply and made it a new topic.
    If you have a question, please create new topic instead of replying to existing one.

    As for your question: do you have WINS servers deployed ? If so, make sure there are no stale records of the old domain in the WINS.

      still puzzled

      I don't have a wins server as were all 2000 and xp clients, the old domain did have a wins server, could this be an indication of what it could be? seems DNS to me but don't know where to look or fix.

      is there an issue with 2000 clients joining a 2003 domain? anything I have to do on the client or server other than just join the domain, could this be something to do with it?

        "Network Places" uses Netbios name lookups and does not use DNS, hence you should be chasing either WINS server, clients are pointing to or computers advertizing old domain's Netbios name.

        W2K clients will join W2K3 domain without any problems. There are no issues with that setup.
