Just installing a 2008 R2 server into a 2003 domain (although not yet at the stage of adding to domain) and can't get internet access. Access to network shares works fine. Any ideas?
lol.. cheers dan,
look at me with my one word answers.
not very helpful.. soz.
No problem Adam, try to give as much info as you can in a response to a question , make's it alot easier for eveybody then :-)
Although, sometimes all it needs is a one word answer, even in these cases I try to provide a related article as you never know what level the user is.
Thanks. I had forgotten that one but it hasn't made a difference. Yellow exclamation mark on the tray icon, windows update fails to connect, etc
Bum! It has just started working! I hate computer! Thanks anyway!
What is your network currently set as? Home, Work or Public?
Good at least its working now.
My Server 2008 R2 often "loses" it's internet. Give it some time and it magically appears. May have something to do with connectivity but I'm not overly concerned as I know it comes back.
I have also had the default gateway disappear the odd time from the IP address setting when i give it a manual address. This will cause no internet connection.
this sounds like the nic or switch port struggled to auto negotiate.
Hard setting the speed and duplex on servers is good practice, considering they are always on and connected, just don't forget to set this on the switch port as well.
I am getting an occasional incorrect 'No Internet' status in taskbar and network sharing screen on our domain controller. Turned on box this morning and task bar indicated 'no internet'. Looking at 'Network and Sharing Center', the two domain NIC's (static IP) indicated no network - one is a virtual NIC, yet WSUS updates and IE and probably everything else have internet access. After about 15 minutes, I just start writing this post, popped back to look at some terminology, and its got internet access OK. But two days ago, it had a false No Internet Access for the whole day.
What determines this status? Internet access is via a virtual server running Forefront TMG. All other machines, virtual servers or otherwise are showing a correct status. It just seems to be the DC.
