  • Wrong domain is being looked at for Group Policy processing

    I have interited a domain in trouble. Logins from clients are taking 5 or so minutes to login, I suspect because the clients are attempting to process group policy from domain.co, that is what is say in the event logs. DCDIAG and NetDiag are showing domain.co as well as domain.com, which is the correct domain. I don't see any entries to domain.co but it is in netlogon.dns and in windows\schanel and a sch entry in the registry. Have trouble resolvoing with the pdc which is also running DNS Server. I would be happy to provide additional information anybody might consider important.

    What is the history behind domain.co?
    Was it a rename, or another tree?

      Don't know a lot of history, but I think a domain rename was done.

        Domain renaming is a more complex process, i will recommend to install/deploy domain controllers from scratch to avoid future problems.

          I think the point of the post is that someone else DID rename the domain and the OP is trying to sort out the problems

            I am trying to sort out the problem. I agree that starting out with a domain controllor from scratch would be the way to go in the future but that really won't help me with the problem at hand. c:\Windows\SchCach has the domain.co in there. Three LDAP CN= entries in Hkey_Local_machine\Software\Microsoft\ADS\Provider s\LDAP, one with domain.com, one with domain.co, and a third domainp.com. Any help would be welcomed.

              Search the AD schema using ADSI edit and change all entries referring to the wrong domain?
              (Note, have a good backup first and, if in doubt, dont chaneg anything)

                Looked around, don't see any entries there about domain.co. Any other ideas?
