  • Cannot add new XP clients anymore

    I have a sbs2003 system that has been running fine for a long time. I have had to move the drives into a new case and did not do a reinstall(about a year ago). I have recently noticed I can no longer get to the connectcomputer web page from an xp system that is not part of the domain.
    I can manually join systems that have vista or 7. I have manually joined a xp system, but after reboot it will not logon because it cannot comincate with the domain controller.
    So I ping the server from a pc on the domain and it resolves the server correctly using the fqdn. I ping the server fqdn from an xp machine not in the domain and shows 2 public ip adresses. I have changed the network setup and created a new scope and forward lookup zone.
    I have set the main dns server on the xp machines to point to the sbs2003 box.

    I have seen several postings similar to this and they all talk about fixing the forward lookup zone. I have a (A) record in the zone for the sbs box and it shows me the correct domain.

    Any ideas on finding the cause would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd recommend running the Wizards and ensuring your network is all setup correctly.
    Moving the disks to a new physical case shouldn't have caused behaviour like this - something else went wrong somewhere I think.

      Can you please explain, "I ping the server fqdn from an xp machine not in the domain and shows 2 public ip adresses. I have changed the network setup and created a new scope and forward lookup zone. "
      Does the server respond on the "internal IP address"? ( I am assuming here that you have an internal NIC and an external one - maybe incorrectly)
      Does the XP machine have only one NIC active when you try to //connect it?
      Does the XP machine have SP3 installed?
      TIA

        I have rerun the wizards and nothing has changed.

        I meant nslookup run on an xp machine not part of the domain...
        domain.local = correct ip address of server
        server.domain.local = 2 external ip addresses(as in 66.95.xxx.xxx - not part of my internal network)

        In dnsmgmnt, changed name servers in _msdcs.domain.local and domain.local ot reflect new ip address of DC. Also added reverse lookup zone for new subnet.

        I apologize, my original post did not have the correct info. Could this all be fixed by routing all traffic THROUGH the server? XP machines that are part of the domain have no issues. New clients with w7 can be joined, but must be done so manually. Cannot use the connectcomputer web page.

        Oh! I have worked with other domains that were not routed through the sbs box and was able to add xp clients. That's why I have not changed the setup in that way.

        Thanks,
        Tony

          Can you post the results of an IPCONFIG/ALL from
          a) the SBS server
          b) a working client
          c) a problem client
