    in reply to: Converting 2008R2 Boot Drive To Raid 1 #390617

    Thanks for the input, system board is a uefi board so that is a plus. What sucks is I specifically ordered a 2tb drive for this way back when but will work with what I have and get a second 3tb drive along with the partition manager. Thanks again for the recommendation.

    Re: DNS Suffix Snafu

    I was able to correct this issue finally. Since every time I made modifications to my registry and the old domain name came back I thought it was a group policy setting but it wasn’t. Turns out it was in the DHCP scope and I found it in the Server Options….DNS Domain Name setting. Changed that and all is as it should be now. Thanks for the help :)

    Re: DNS Suffix Snafu

    i did check the dhcp scope and there wasn’t anything that was out of place. i did review the posted link and yes, i found two entries in the tcpip parameters that had the old domain listed and made changes but even though the changes were made, upon reboot the settings of the old domain were written back. i didn’t do the gpo fix as we don’t have that many clients in the network.

    Re: Rendom Error

    Hi Jeremy, Sorry for it being so long for a reply back to this subject but was prevented by the higher ups from proceeding with the rename due to end year tax stuff. Anyway, yes, the forest functional level is set at 2008R2. I did go through with the rename about a week ago and everything went very well until the gpfixup. All the group policy settings were trashed and had to recreate them. All of that is working as planned now and all client machines are functioning with the new domain name.

    New issue: When our mail server sends out email, in the header of the email message, the sending server reflects the new FQDN of the mail server but in parenthesis right after it, the old domain FQDN with IP address is listed. I do not know yet if it is due to our ISP still having an MX record with the old domain name active, am waiting for the end of today to see that. I also started sniffing around and found a couple entries in the registry of the mail server that still contains the old domain name. Do you know if this issue is being caused by something in the schema not being correct or the MX record with our ISP?

    Re: Joining Domain Problem

    Problem solved… DNS was the issue but it wasn’t anything with the server settings.. The client IPV4 network adapter settings in windows 10 doesn’t have the ability to select the radio button for “obtain DNS server address automatically” as it is grayed out.. I input the servers DNS IP address and all took off…

    Re: Joining Domain Problem

    hi, thanks for the reply. i hadn’t tried yet to access the VM from the internet yet. i do have DNS installed on the server VM, i can see that SRV records are installed and pointing to the IP address assigned to the VM and the preferred DNS server set in the IPV4 settings of the network adapter are pointing to the servers IP address. I have the VM network connection set as Bridged mode, which with my experimenting before installation was the only way I could get network access to the internet.
