    Note that roaming profiles won’t save space on the local HD. When you log on it copies the profile to the local computer from the server. Changes are copied back to the server at log off. Any subsequent log ons are updated with the latest version from the server.

    %systemroot%System32ConfigNetlogon.dns contains all the DNS entries that are required for AD to function. This file is created during dcpromo setup

    Did you let dcpromo install DNS for you?

    Run dcdiag from both the DC and the client.

    Re: cant ping

    You need to add an entry for “company.com”.

    e.g.
    company.com IN A 202.138.184.115

    …and to do the catch all it’s usually
    *.comany.com IN A 202.138.184.115
    but you’ll need to check with your provider.

    in reply to: Disaster Recovery #267275

    Re: Disaster Recovery

    DNS – AD Integrated DNS zone has the fault tolerance (every copy of the DNS info can be modified)

    DHCP – you should employ the “80/20” (or whatever split you’re comfortable with) and have two DHCP servers running at the same time

    WINS – wait for someone else to post. Not my strong side since I’ve never had to use it

    FSMO – again, someone more knowledgeable can speak to this but my initial thoughts are that you can’t have FSMO fault tolerance without some sort of clustering solution.

    Re: cant ping

    You might need to setup the A record for “domain.com”. If you have your DNS info “parked” with your registrar’s name servers then I’m sure you can log on to their web site and configure you DNS. You’ll want to check to see if “domain.com” is pointing to your public IP in addition to “www.domain.com”. You can also usually configure a catch all so that “anything you type*.domain.com” all goes to the same place.

    Re: Clients wont apply GPO

    Yes, sorry I wasn’t clear. Check to see if you configured the Default Domain Controller policy by mistake.
    You do want to configure the Default Domain policy.

    Some things to check for if you’ve correctly configured the Default Domain policy:
    Download and install the GPMC if you haven’t already. Then:
    -See if “Block Inheritance is enabled on any of the OUs (a blue “!” on the OU folder)
    -Check the scope of the policy. Make sure it can be applied by the computers.
    -Use RSoP in planning mode to see if “in theory” it should work. If it does, use RSoP in logging mode (user must have logged on at least once to run a query on it)

    If the names of the cookies are static you could pretty easily do it with a scrip. But if you’re looking to get rid of malicious cookies you can use SpyBot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware. If this is a commercial environment you’ll have to pay for the software, otherwise it’s free.

    in reply to: Folder Redirect – GPO #267267

    Re: Folder Redirect – GPO

    Does it sync new files or just the ones that were previously cached?

    Have you tried clearing the Offline Files cache? (Folder Options -> Offline Files -> Delete Files) Try this on one computer.

    If it works, in your GPO you can set the “At logoff, delete local copy of user’s of offline files” (found in Comp Config./Admin Temp/Network/Offline Files)
    This should clear the cache of the rest of your computers.

    Yes. Open the Event Viewer, right click the “Event Viewer” folder and “Open Log File”. After you’ve opened your saved .evt file, right click it and select “save as”. Select csv as the “Save as type”.

    My network consist of 1 server that will have the following roles: Domain Controller, DHCP and DNS, and 3 workstaion. I’m using broadband connection and as you already know is dynamic and they are behind a liknsys router. I have registered two domain names thru “DNSEXIT.COM” with free dynamic “DNS” service. I have already setup the dns from “dnsexit.com” dns server, but I can’t make it work from my server computer(see attachment pic DC.jpg). As of the Even, it didn’t log anything. So I have decided to create the ‘DC’ with the error on the ‘dns’.

    Are you using NAT?
    If so I think what you need to do is see if you can configure your Linksys router to dynamically update your DNS record with your external NS.
    Also, to get AD to function properly you’ll need to install DNS on the DC.

    Hi boricua.
    Is that DNS server one that you or someone in your organization controls?

    If not you should probably just select “Install and configure the DNS server on this computer…”

    You may want to read this to get a better grasp of why you even need DNS

    You can disable Offline files for the specific share by going to the properties sharing tab and click “Caching” or “Offline Settings” depending on the OS version you’re running.

    in reply to: Child Domains / Accounts #267261

    Re: Child Domains / Accounts

    Hi nolan.
    The way we did it in our AD was to define groups for the various users (in this case you could put all the user from a site into a respective group) and then used the GP setting “Allow log on locally” (in “Computer ConfigurationWindows SettingsSecurtiy SettingsLocal PoliciesUser Rights Assignment”) and specified the groups we wanted to log on. When you do this, only the groups you specify will be able to log on and no others so be sure to include the admins’ group. You can make one for each site and then apply them to their respective sites.

    Re: win 98 cannot able to access win xp ???

    Hi winxandlinx.
    Did you read the link posted?

    IF you have the user setup correctly, meaning they’re identical on both 98 and xp, then you should check the permissions on the share you’re trying to connect to.

    Check out this link… it uses lots of graphics http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/wxpwin9x.html

    in reply to: Folder redirect (of course) filter question #267259

    Re: Folder redirect (of course) filter question

    Hi anomaly

    GPOs only affect users and computers so yes, your user needs to be in the OU that you linked the GPO to. Once the GPO is applied to the user (at logon) it then redirects the folder based on group membership… provided you’ve set it up as you described.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: win 98 cannot able to access win xp ???

    NTFS shouldn’t be an issues, the XP OS is what is accessing the hard drive.
    To access the XP from 98, make sure you have a user configured on the XP system with the exact same username and password as on the 98 system.

    Here’s a link that details what needs to be done: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-108

    in reply to: Restore Boot.ini from System State Backup #267257

    Re: Restore Boot.ini from System State Backup

    Right, what I meant was the MS might think that it’s not worth backing up because if your boot.ini file gets messed up you won’t be able to boot into Windows to do a restore anyways. But having said that, if you’re able to access your backup set with another computer (on cd, dvd, tape, or put the HD in this other system), if the boot.ini file was backed up you could at least put it on a floppy or open it up to match it up manually.

    in reply to: Change Domain IP #267256

    Re: Change Domain IP

    You’re trying to get the printer into the same subnet as the rest of your domain?

    How is everything connected? Switches and/or hubs?

    What is the network address of the “other network”? 172.16.1.0?

    What is your network address? i.e. what is the first IP address in your network minus 1 (e.g. 172.16.1.1 -1 =172.16.1.0)

    As far as DNS goes, you shouldn’t need to change anything there as long as your IP addresses stay the same and you just change the subnet mask.

    OK, so I’m not going crazy. It may be because if you’re boot.ini file’s messed up you won’t be able to restore it from a backup anyway.

    On Win2k3 I did a test restore to an alternate location and I couldn’t find the boot.ini file. Is there something I’m missing? Does it get named something different during the restore process or does it only restore that file when you have it set to “Original Location”?

    I could be wrong but I don’t think the System state backs up the boot.ini file.
