I've just installed a new DC and started using DHCP from static addresses (finaly), I am having a problem though, when people try to log on they have to wait about 15 minutes to get in. If they reboot the computer and retry it logs them on in 10 - 15 secs.
I did a search for dhcp problems earlier and found that censornet may have a dhcp server started by default, so I followed the instructions on how to turn it off but I don't know if tht has cured the problem or not.
When I log on as admin and run ipconfig this is what I get:
domain prefix: local
ip address: 192.168.x.x
subnet mask: 255.255.x.x
the ip, subnet and gateway are fine, but the domain prefix should say "norden2000.local"
When i run ipconfig /all the dns servers are wrong, they list the dns servers that I use for the admin domain that point to the county servers.
to get it to logon quickly i have to run ipconfig /flushdns, then ipconfig /renew and it the gets all the correct settings that I have set.
I have set ip address, subnet, gateway, dns server, domain prefix.
does anyone have any ideas why this is happening, it's driving me mad.
