    Problems with PDC

    Locked

    by djnoy ·

    Here’s an odd problem. I installed NTServer4 as a PDC on a test network. After getting everything on it, WINS, DNS, DHCP, SP6, IE5, MDAC, etc. I try to ping another machine on the network. It won’t ping. The Hub is working, the cat5 cables are good. The NIC is working and the drivers are correct. It is set to be a master browser by default and set to domain master in the registry. The machines are on the same subnet. The machine is working properly. There are no errors reported by event viewer. However, when I update it to Windows2000 server, it works fine, but I’m not trying to run 2000. Also in network neighborhood, It doesn’t show up (usually points to a browser problem). It can ping itself without a problem also. Any help would be appreciated.

      you didn’t say if you are pinging by name or IP? but if you can ping by IP and not by name look for a WINS/DNS problem, if you can’t ping either way look for a gateway problem.
      hope this helps if not send me more info.

        Yorkster, you can’t ping by either. The WINS server is set up correctly. The DNS server is also functioning properly. The clue here is that it doesn’t even see itself in Network Neighborhood. The browser settings in the register are set to Truefor domain master and Yes to maintain browse list.

      Have you check?d the correct Speed ? 10 or 100 for Ethernet. This is usualy a Problem when the Hub is a 10/100 autosense, and the driver is configured for autosense the speed.

        I’ve checked. It’s a 100. It’s not a problem with the hub. I can say this because I took it and tested out on another network and it works fine. The clue here is that it doesn’t see itself in network neighborhood. The browser settings are correct.

      If you made any changes to the network adapter (or NT services) since you last got the SP6 on it, you have to install it again.

      Make sure that it has a STATIC IP address and not that it takes it from the DHCP pool.
      And also make sure that the wins address points to itself.

        It has a static address and the wins address is pointed to itself.
