Branch office setup

By joesoh ·
I have a branch office with just 5 windows 98 PC and no server installed. They are connected through router to HQ which is running Win NT server with no WINS and DNS service installed. I am now facing a problem loging on my branch office client to my HQ domain with the error message "no domain available".
May I know what additional step I need to do in order for the client to logon to HQ domain? adding LMHOSTS file to client will solve the problem?

Branch Office Setup

by hmossessi In reply to Branch office setup

Make sure you have static IP addresses for the workstations at the remote office and the you've configured TCP/IP correctly namely the Subnet Mask and the Gateway address, then make sure your PDC is running if the PDC is off you will get this message, a number of things will give you this error. If I were you and I had the budjet allowed I would buy another server and set it up either as a BDC or another PDC and create a two way trust relationship. Or just set it up as a BDC and your remote workstations could just log into the the BDC and set both PDC and BDC replicate at night or at a time when network traffic is at its slowest time. I hope this helps.
