  • Computer on Domain

    Hi All:

    We have a AD infrastucture with multiple sites. I have a computer on one Site that wont take the policy from the DC/GC server thats on that site.

    Policy is applied from a random server on other sites. I have made sure that the computer is in the correct OU and the computer uses the correct DNS information.

    I have tried to remove the computer from the domain & rejoined it. But with no use.

    Is there any other thing I can check ?

    Thanks for help.

    Are other computers from the site affected also or only this one?

      No. This is the only computer that is having problem. All others are working fine.

        After disjoining from the domain and add it to workgroup, delete the entries from DNS server on that site. As well as reload the DNS server data files.

        Make sure that the PC is added in the domain on that site.

        Install the resource kit of the OS (XP/2000). From the resource kit directory there are certen commands from which you can check the GC server which is authenticating. It will give you all the details happening between authentication server and GC server.

        Tell me whether it works or not.

          is your desktop authenticated by a local server?
          Run systeminfo from your windows xp command prompt.
          Is this computer member of the same ip subnet like the rest of the computers, if not is this subnet assigned to your local site?

          Please provide as much as details if possible. It will help us to help you.

            Dear All

            Thanks for the reply. I did run the systeminfo on that XP machine.

            The Logon server is different from the one that its supposed to be.

            Here is the IP configuration info from the XP machine:


            Windows IP Configuration



            Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : cns-e1-ils-034

            The IP Configuration info from Server:

            IP Address: 10.17.91.5
            subnet: 255.255.255.0
            Def Gateway: 10.17.91.1



            Is there a way to make this computer Authenticate to the correct server ...

            THanks for your inputs ..

              Please fined out if this computer is member of the same ip subnet like the rest of the computers in your location, if not is this subnet assigned to your local site?
              It is very important.
              Go to AD site and services, Subnets and try to identify subnet 10.17.91.0/24.
              It should be assigned to you local site.
