Name resolution in multihomed system.

By bmf1972 ·
Hi all,

I am using Win2K Adv Srv SP2 configured as a PDC.
It has one Ethernet card (static IP) and one dial-up modem used to connect a remote network (dynamically assigned IP by remote DHCP).

When working disconnected from the remote network, everything works fine: pinging the PDC hostname returns the local IP address.

The problem is when connected to the remote network: pinging the PDC hostname now returns the remote assigned IP for that WAN/PPP connection.

...and the following error events are logged:

1) Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. Return value (1722).

2) The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (17) and returned a failure status code of (3).

3) Security policy cannot be propagated. Cannot access the template. Error code = 3.
\\development.local\sysvol\development.local\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Machine\Microsoft\Windows NT\SecEdit\GptTmpl.inf.

4) Windows cannot access the registry information at \\development.local\sysvol\development.local\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Machine\registry.pol with (1351).

Thanks in advance,

Right click my network places, click properties. In the Network Connections window, click on Advanced and goto Advanced Settings and make sure your nic 1 is at the top. If that doesn't work, Disable dns updates by doing a registry hack. Goto:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\"deviceID" (the device ID of the netword adaptor for the interface) On the EDIT menu, point to NEW and click DWORD Value. Type "DisableDynamicUpdate and then press ENTER twice. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, type 1 in the Value data box and click OK.
