NT 4 Member Server in WIN2K Domain.

By maj0709 ·
I have a problem that I need to get resolved. I want to know if anyone out there has experienced this problem.
I currently have 3 Windows Servers. 1 is a WIN2K Server, another is a WIN2K Advanced Server, and 1 is a Win NT 4 SP6a Member Server.I have created a Windows 2000 Domain that IS NOT IN NATIVE mode. I have been able to join the WIN2K domain on the WIN NT 4 server, but I cannot find it in the Network Neighborhood. If I search for it on the WIN2K servers, they do not see it, but Ican ping the IP address. If I search for it on the NT 4 server, I do find it, but still not listed in the network neighborhood. The NT 4 server can log into the domain with a valid administrator username with no problem at all.

Any ideas?

How about WINS or DNS? Are they configured correctly? Did you allow the NT4 server to register with the W2K DNS?

The server was registered in DNS with the FQDN A record. But, I found out the problem. I had Raptor Firewall installed and that disabled NetBIOS over IP. Once I removed Raptor Firewall, I was able to "see" the server in Network Neighborhood.

My guess is its a pure WINS problem. Make sure that WINS is installed on the W2K servers, and that the Member server knows how to find these WINS server, either by using the Network ICON, Protocols, TCP/IP tab WINS, or via DHCP, Scope Options Type 44 and type 46.

This would be a good answer, if my problem was not related to Raptor Firewall. I did forget to mention that it was installed. What was happening was the Raptor was diabling NetBIOS over IP. That is why I could not "see" the server name in NetworkNeighborhood.

Thanks.

possibly your active directory. you cannot deply active directory until your whole domain is WIN2K family. if this it not the case, check your naming such as wins, dns, etc. also make sure your gatewats are opinting to intelligent devices such as a router's static ip or something.

Actually, you can have a Windows 2000 domain and not have all Windows 2000 based systems. I found out the problem. I had Raptor Firewall installed and that disabled NetBIOS over IP. Once I removed Raptor Firewall, I was able to "see" the server in Network Neighborhood.
