  • Network problems after installing SP1

    Hi,
    I'm having some weird problems with my entire network, that i can't seem to isolate. They started after SP1 was loaded on one of our DC's. Here is a brief overview of our network

    forest
    _____________|____________
    | |
    domain 1 domain 2
    | |
    7 x DC's 1 x dc (exchange 2003 sp2) w2k3 sp1
    1 x GC 1 x gc
    NO SP1

    (see attached jpg)

    Exchange (domain 2) points to domain 1 for GC access, user authentication.
    all users are in domain 1

    The problems started after DC1 (gc holder, dc1 does not hold any fsmo roles) in domain1 was upgraded to SP1.
    SP1 was then removed but the problems remained.
    shutting down dc1 cured the problems.
    bring dc1 back online re-introduced the problems.

    the gc was then moved to DC2 in domain 1 (dc 2 has never had sp1 applied) to keep exchange running.
    shutting down dc1 did not cure the problems.
    shutting down dc2 did not cure the problems.
    shutting down both dc1 and dc2 does not cure the problem

    GC moved back to dc1
    shutting down dc1 did not cure the problems
    shutting down dc2 did not cure the problems
    shutting down both dc1 and dc2 does not cure the problem


    The problems i am having are with users logging in. login scripts are set at the user object, NOT applied by GPO. The script will run for a few lines and then quit before mapping any drives.
    Another problem is running software on workstations. For example :

    PC1 with package 1 and package 2.
    User 1 logs on, cannot run package 1 but can run package 2
    User 2 logs on, can run both package1 and 2
    User 3 logs on, connot run either package 1 or 2

    All 3 users are members of the same groups, in the same ou, and were created at the same time.

    These problems only occured after SP1 was deployed to DC1.

    I have tried calling microsoft, but all they can suggest is change the scripts, and they run - problem solved! wrong answer microsoft.

    Does anybody have any ideas, or has anybody seen this before?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you review:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898060

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899148

    Also, move all the DC's to SP1 in the same time.. This will help you
    to resolve version conflict.

    ?

      Hi,
      Yes i have reviewed both kb's. The first update will not install as SP1 has been removed. Second kb, we do not have any internal firewalls. I've held off upgrading all dc's to sp1 as the first dc to be upgraded caused problems. At least to start with i could down the upgraded dc to remedy the problem....

      Cheers
      Paul
