deleting a domain

By gmax95 ·
On a separate server, I have setup an experimental domain to test new software, etc. I want this domain to be completely unassociated with the network domain. On both domains, I'm using NT Server 4.0. Neither domain trusts the other and when I logon to the experimental domain, I am given the experimental domain's name as the only domain choice. However, when I am on the PDC of our network domain or at any PC on the network, when I go into NetNeigh>Entire Network>MS Windows Network, I am able to see the experimental domain.

How do I delete/remove this experimental domain from our network domain?? Any suggetions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Your test server is broadcasting a name announcement which your master browser is picking up and advertising. If you want this machine to "hide" in your network, you will have to use a method to defeat discovery. I don't know your situation so one solution or another may not be acceptable. Here are some ideas...

1.Use a dissimiliar protocol for your test server.
2.Subnet your test server outside your internal network. For IPX, use a different network number.
3.Last resort, disable name announcements on test server (edit the registry).

No action on your production network is necessary. Once your master browser can't see the test server it will drop off the list (1hr or less).

You can also hide the server from the network by using this command.
NET CONFIG SERVER /HIDDEN:YES
