Backoffice 2K new Install

By jodyc ·
I'm having troubles implementing BO2K. I have a new sever with two NICS. 1 NIC for Internal and one for a DSL Internet connection. I've installed a bare bones install of 2K Server in workgroup mode and setup my hardware accordingly. Next I applied an IP address scheme to NIC 1 (internal ) of 10.0.0.2 NIC 2 SDSL is my static internet IP. I also configured a default gateway and DNS servers on NIC 2(my ISP's DNS) I am able to get on the net ok. My ISP has also setup DNS entries to point to my domain. I can ping my IP from the Internet using my web address. www.domain.com

After this point is where I'm running the BO2K install. After its installed, I have DNS errors, about AD replicating partners, W32time, a whole bunch of IIS errors in the app log. I answered all the questions correctly. Why would this configuration be so odd that it would come up with errors like this?

Comments or Suggestions would be appreciated.

Don't know if this will resolve all of your issues, but I would suggest the following. It sounds like Active Directory has been installed on this system. I'd recommend that you remove the DNS entries from the NIC card and allow it to reference itself (when you remove them it should do that automatically). Leave the gateway in place. Then, go into the DNS service configuration in Computer Manager and add your DNS addresses in as Forwarders. This should eliminate the majority of the DNS errors. Don't know if it will help with AD replicating partners, but I suspect it may. The W32time errors can be ignored and won't cause any problems, but I would suggest following the setup described in the event log (it's pretty easy and keeps the time current). Perhaps these changes will also resolve some of the IIS errors.

Let me know if this helps. Good luck.

Regards,
Kerry

I think my DNS is ok now. I let backoffice do the DC update rather than trying to pre do it before installing backoffice. I'm still getting wtime errors. I did the command line fix but was unsure where to point it to so I pointined it to myself.Is this the suggested way to configure this or is there a time server on the Internet that you should point it to ?

P.S. How do you install the user apps? Simply go to the shares and run the install? There must be some sort of automatedway like on SBS ?

Regarding your time server question, you can point to public servers on this list:

http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/servers.html

I usually point to tick.uh.edu or tick.usno.navy.mil

As for installing apps, I haven't had any experience with SBS 2000, but I have had lots of fun with AD setup on standard W2K servers.
