Windows 2000 Server issues

By suem ·
I recently had to rebuild my windows 2000 server. Since that time, my windows 2000 & wXP machines are having trouble staying connected to internet sites, they can go there once or twice and then not again until the ipconfig is release and renewed. Some sites you can only get to if you don't put in the www, if you are being redirected from a search it will error off? I have been searching everywhere for a solution. Also, the machines are coming up with Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event I 1000
Date: 6/3/2005
Time: 1:49:40 PM
Computer: WS-ITDIR
Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. Return value (1722).

When I follow the instructions to fix this issue with no success.

Can you please help. My users are very frustrated. The users still using W98 are not having any trouble at all. I know there must be something not set up right in the DNS settings but I can't figure out what it is. Anything help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Check the DNS settings
Check TCP/IP settings

Is this a domain with AD?

In your DNS settings, do you have forwarders enabled?

Is this the only DNS server you have on your network?

What type of internet connection do you have?

Firt check whether your computer are on domain. Then try setting TCP/IP properties.
You should enable forwardes on the DNS server.

Are all the clients Win 2000 professional?

Grey Hat - Yes this is a domain running active directory

Scott - Yes my forwarders are set but it appears that not all of the correct information is there. Yes, it is the only DNS server I have on my network. I have a partial t-1 connections share with my voice data using a vina box.

Intelligent - Yes, all the computers are on the domain and everyone can see each other. There is a mixture of clients (w98, w2000 & wxp.

Blackcurrant - No, I have not seen this article but it had a lot of great information. It is pointing me in the right direction of trying to resolve the issues.

I will let you know if it works. Thank you all for your time.

off the top of my head, it sounds like a network connectivity issue....did you diddle with the time to live on the tcpip leases or anything? you are using your ad controller as the dns server? presumabaly if you gave everyone static address, this would go away? how many clients we talking about here...?
and, in case this helps us somehow, why did you have to rebuild the 2k server?
my 2 cents questions:
you got a firewall(s) somewhere
you got time synchronised on all clients to ad server?

maybe the problem lies not in dns but in dhcp...

I have solved the internet issue. The Active Directory wasn't set up correctly.
