  • Windows Std 2003 Server - DHCP/DNS

    I have a Windows Std 2003 Server and trying to connect workstations to domain. I have found two problems:
    1. Server DHCP does not issue IP address automatically. I have check the services and settings and it looks fine. The IP range is thru 192.168.2 250. The server has static ip set to -,, no gateway, and DNS is On the workstation, i have set ip address to, and gateway of The workstation Gateway is With this settings, any workstation does not have internet access, even if i change to obtain IP address. The Router is DLink and the DHCP is off.

    2. DNS does not resolve and could not connect any workstation to Domain Server. I get the ff errors:

    Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\WINDOWS\debug\dcdiag.txt.
    The domain name metropolis might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.
    If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
    The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain metropolis:
    The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
    (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.metropolis
    Common causes of this error include the following:
    - The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.
    - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

    Re: Windows Std 2003 Server - DHCP/DNS

    I want to make sure I get it right:
    subnet is
    router is
    server is (both DHCP & DNS services) - did you exclude this IP from DHCP?

    client is with D\G to the DNS server - did you exclude this IP from DHCP?

    you do not want clients to go to the internet
    you do not want clients to get any D\G

    what type of equipment are you using to connect all the clients and the server on the 192.168.2.x subnet?

      isn't the gateway is supposed to point to the dlink rather than to x.x.x.110 for both server and workstation? can they ping each other as well as the router?
