authenticating in Mixed Mode

By FatUncleAL ·
I upgraded my NT PDC to win2000 DC. Setup DNS and running in Mixed Mode with 3 NT BDCs. The network has most 98 machines and about 100 w2k machines. Everything running fine. Just found out one day when NT BDC#1 was down, no w98 machines can authenticate and logon to network. But w2k machines had no problem. I had to reboot the NT BDC #1, then w98 machines can logon again. Why didn't NT BDC #2 and #3 authenticate when #1 was down? Why didn't the w2k DC authenticate the w98 machines ? What shouldI look for and correct ? Thanks for any help.

Install WINS on DC - this will resolve problem with Win98/95.

Good luck

install ADclients on your win 98 machine so they can enjoy everything AD can offer like, ability to log on on any win2k machine and password can be change thru AD, also check if you have any WINS configured on your BDC, or make your DHCP to assign some IP to DNS server so you can authenticate on the win2k

Ensure NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on the 2k boxes. That along with a WINS server should do the trick.

Make sure that DHCP is set to register leases with the DNS and that the DNS server specified on the Clients is that of your internal server.
