Help with DNS setup

By mmbc_voltron ·
I have tried several times and I think I am doing something wrong.
Previous post: http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6239-0.html?forumID=46&threadID=162976

I have re-installed again and this is what I have done so far.
Installed w2k server. During setup I specified an IP of 192.168.1.5 and the server name is SERVER.
Added DHCP and configured it. With options 03, 06

Now I don't know if I should setup DNS first before doing the dcpromo. I have always ran the configure your server wizard to add AD and in the wizard it adds DNS for me.
Should I do the DNS and configure it?

Yes I am loging in as a domain account. and yes the domain is in the third box.
I can view the server shares using the UNC path
I did a net view and it lists the shares on the server.
Yes the WS joined ok because the computer was add to the AD. The permissions are set to everyone has full control.

any other clues?

If you view the server shares using Net View, and can
open them using UNC then you are fine. If you cannot
see them in Network Place then the Master Browse List
is not up to date which is normal and can take aprox an
hour to sync up. To see them in AD they must be
shared and then published in AD.

humm on to seeing shares on a workstation. Ok, administrative shares are appended with a $ to hide em. Unless you create network shares and publish them in active directory, you wont see any in my network places or if you browse AD no shares will show up [sans the sysvol folder]. Just create a shared folder and publish it to AD [during the creation process the wizard will ask you if you want to publish the share to AD, choose yes].

Thanks for following me through. I still don't know whats the deal can't see the shares in network places. Put yes I just published in AD and that will work for now.
SO thanks for being patient.
