How do I fix this networking problem?

By jrubex ·
Below is the scenario:

The company has:
2 servers (one acting as a DC and the other an ISA
1 NEXXT 8 port switch (non-managed)
A Greendot connection
3 desktop computers
1 2-Port KVM Switch
Both Servers have Windows 2003 Small Business Server installed

Services to be run on both servers:

Server 1: Domain Controller
Active Directory
Server 2: ISA Server
ISA 2006
Mc Afee Security Shield

What I have done so far on the DC:
Install the OS
Install Active Directory, DNS and DHCP and configured them
Configure TCP/IP:
i.p :


What i have done on the ISA:
Install the OS
Configure TCP/IP:


purchased an Ethernet to usb adapter to connect the greendot to the ISA server. It has a dynamic ip of:


now since the switch is not managed i have no idea how to add the isa server to the domain . also I am not getting any addresses on any of the client systems so I cant even try to add them to the domain. All systems including the ISA server are currently attached to the switch and none would add to the domain.

Your DNS is all over the place.

They all should point to the same DNS server address. The switch is largely irrelevant, as far as I can tell.

The DHCP server should probably be taking care of that, so maybe it isn't configured?

Default gateway should be whatever node lies between a particular device and the servers.

Out of curiosity, the "Greendot connection" would be for the money card services company of the same name?
