By jhayesit ·
HI,
i have network and with active directory setup at home. And when i take my work laptop which is hooked up to the work domain i can't browse the server at home, if i go start run \\serverhome it gives me the error no logon servers available. however if i log in on the laptop as local admin it lets me browse it fine. is there anything i have to do at my server to let my work domain laptop browse it? thanks

What IP Address settings are both environments using? Do you have an account on your home domain and are you using it to logon? Did you try creating a separate profile for each domain? Setup a profile logon for work and one for home. If your loggingonto Laptop locally and have correct IP settings you can see the network. Try using the wizard to add your computer to the domain and add your user account if you haven't already done so.

both are on dhcp, i have a dhcp at home and also at work. i can't logon to the domain at home because its not part of the domain, if i join my home domain it will kick me out of the one from work. if i log on to the laptop as local administrator of the laptop, i can go to start run \\serverhome and type in my home username and password and it lets me browse it. but if the laptop is logged in with an account from work domain, it gives me an error no logon servers available. I wan't to be able to login with my work account and be able to browse my server. it used to work fine before, but i had to redo my home server, and i can't figure out what i am missing.

thanks

If your Home Domain shows up as an option on the Logon dialog box you should be able to login to your domain with a user account in your home active directory.

no it doesn't because its not a trusted domain, i can't make it a trusted domain since they are at different locations.

Most likely this is a locator service issue (DNS or WINS).

Check to see if DHCP at home serves up the DNS address of your home server. If not, go to DHCP Manager and add the DNS server address.

It is also possible that your home DNS server is not operating properly. From your home server, go to the command shell (cmd.exe) and run the following commands:

ipconfig /registerdns
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon

If you are still having problems, enable WINS on your home server and modify DHCP to serve up the WINS address also.

Run the following command as a test:
net use * \\serverhome\netlogon

If you are still unable to connect, I'd look at how SMB signing is set up on the home server, and on your work laptop. Most commonly, both computers are set to send LM and NTLM, negotiate NTLM v2 when possible.
