    New DC in Unidentified Network

    I have just added a new 2008 R2 DC into my 2003 domain. The DCpromo went fine but since the reboot I cannot connect to it or ping it. Logging onto the server I see that the network is "unidentifed" and has been put into a "public" firewall profile instead of "Domain". I cant connect to anything or ping anything from the server either.

    What has gone wrong?

    Ive tried different NICS, disabling, enabling etc but nothing doing!

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: here you go The network location profile changes from "Domain" to "Public" in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2
    No joy I'm afraid. Its still showing as Unidentified.

    Ok - looks like the issue was with the switch I was connecting into. I moved the connection to a different switch and the domain was picked up instantly.
