Can't see the server
(Yes - I know - its in front of me :) )
Day 1 of setup and image 28 desktops/re-image 40 netbooks and switch 16 remaining old w2k3 AD machines into simple non-domain computers a la SimpleSi primary school network model :)
So I remove one of the old machines from the AD, create my pupil administrator logon, reboot and go to run my WPKG install script from my new w2k8 server - computer says what server!!!
It can see the old one, it can go onto T'internet but refuses to even acknowledge the existence of the new server.
Me thinks the little people inside the computer are rebelling over the changes :)
Just off to get a hammer.....
is it able to lookup the server?
You might find the server thinks the machine has an open session using ad credentials and its now trying without AD creds.
Did and ipconfig /all and noticed it (laptop) was picking up ip on hard lan as well as wireless - found lan cable plugged in the back (this was put into a class for a teacher to replace broken desktop - I should have removed cable to stop him plugging it in :) )
Now works fine :)
Interestingly, it wasn't showing a gateway address on the lan ipconfig readout - when I'm bored one day I'll look into what was going on but for now - its back to setting it up :)
