  • Server 08 AD DC, DNS and DHCP setup

    Hi,

    I have a setup that I'm trying to accomplish at home.

    2 Cisco-Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Routers running DD-WRT.

    1st router connects 2 PCs via LAN ports and one laptop via wireless, and its directly connecting to the broadband cable modem. (I am trying to run Server 08 Standard off this router via LAN port)

    2nd router is downstairs setup as a wireless repeater bridge. Directly connected to it via LAN port is one desktop running Win 7, and more than likely PS3 via wireless bridged signal.

    I want to setup my first domain controller with AD, DNS, and DHCP on the server, then join my other 3 PCs to the domain. (do i have to AD user and PC accounts and configurations 1st?).

    However I receive a message that says the AD DC service cannot be reached when I attempt to join my Win 7 PC to the domain. I can ping the sever though by its IP address and computer name from my Win 7 PC.

    Someone suggested that I need to disable DHCP on both routers to allow the the sever to handle DHCP and DNS? Will what I'm trying to accomplish work?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Normally the server should handle DHCP and must handle DNS -- can you ping the server by name and IP from the client? If not, no hope of joining the domain

      Yes I can ping the server by its IP address as well its name.

      I'm thinking that it has something to do with IP addressing on the server and possibly the router.

      Any other suggestions?


      Thanks,
      Bob

        Can you post an IPCONFIG/ALL from both the DC and the client?
