    Joining domain issue

    Just finish the server setup and do the client join test but failed. (The server is DISABLED with DHCP for now.)

    I disabled both firewall and they're able to ping each other expect join the domain.

    Am I missing something?

    Here's the ip info for you to see if this need to be adjust:

    the domain controler running dns with AD integration should be the DNS on the client? try changing you DNS on client to the address of the server, 10.210.2.8.

    Yes, it should but the *.7 is the currently host the DHCP but don't want to set the client as static to test it (Do I have to do it anyway?)

    well if the client doesn't point to a DNS linked to the AD (an in a domain controller running DNS) then when the client looks for the domain it wont find it, as the other DNS may not have the domain controler listed in it's DNS database. - give it a go, pointing to the DC and see what happens. in the DHPC config on the DC, you can set the DNS servers it sends out.

    I think that mjs_mjs is on the right track. To at least start your fault finding process.
    You said they can ping - did you ping to IP or did you ping to server name?

    At command prompt you could do an NSLOOKUP for the server name and domain name and see if they resolve.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Actually I just shut down the main server (The one with *.7) due to the password I forgot. (I put it in the workbook and somehow it won't let me log in so I gave up even tried with linux based boot up password reset the local admin but I think it won't reset the domain, right?)

    I enabled the DHCP in the router into different range for now.

    The next step I'm going to change the static ip *.8 to *.7 and do few more things. (Such as testing the one of client with GPO with newer features.)

    Any more inputs I would love to hear from you.

    you can try putting the IP of the server instead of the domain, but the above recomendation is correct DNS should have an entry to the DC.

    Which server? *.7 or *.8? (I shut down the *.7 for transfer the ip address to 2k8 R2.)

    Ok; here's the update.

    I'm still stuck for joining the domain from client to server. Here's the ip addresses from both machine. (They're able to ping each other.)

    you either have to have client dns as the dc , or join the domain using the IP of the DC. the former is prefered. without either there is no way for the client to know what or where the domain is.

    Before joining the domain, I got the error message shown in the attachment. I looked into dhcp table and didn't see any duplicate name. Any idea how to remove this off from the database in the local?

    Netbios is the computer name so you have one or more machines with the same netbios name. I guess because you're imaging them?

    I tend to rename 'em using newsid on each re-image but this doesn't make sense when I don't see the two same names on DHCP list. Is there other way to find out to fix this problem?

    The other option if it's not a netbios name clash is that you are still(!) running a WINS server and there are old bad records in there that need clearing out.
