W2K DNS and Internet problem
Posted on 2003-03-03
I have a W2K AS server setup, connected to an ADSL Router/ modem, which also acts as DHCP server. It is set up as a PDC, although at present their no other computers on the network. (other software installed is ZoneAlarm 3.7, Oracle8, SQL server2000 and Domino R5).
The problem appears to be DNS: it takes forever to get a web page to show up and when I try localhost or 127.0.0.1 in a browser I give up before the page ever loads. There are 3 recurrent entries in the Event Viewer (app log):
ERROR - SceCli
Security policy cannot be propagated. Cannot access the template. Error code = 3.
ERROR - userEnv
The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (17) and returned a failure status code of (3).
Do i need DNS running on my server? I tried to set DNS to point to the router but it was having none of it. When I select DNS from Admin tools it says specified DNS server cannot be contacted. What should I do?! I've set up Nt servers in the past but W2K is a bit more complex...
p.s. Why when I right click and select properties for a folder does nothing happen?
