System 5 error. Access is denied

Hi there

Background :-
1.ADSL Router (DHCP Server) - 192.168.0.1
2.Win 2k Server (DHCP Client) - 192.168.0.2(reserved)
3.Win 2k Pro (DHCP Client) - next IP Address

A.LAN IP SetUp
192.168.0.1
255.255.255.0

B.Router on DHCP Server
Start IP - 192.168.0.2
End IP - 192.168.0.254

C.Firewall Rules
Outbound Services - allow any service
Inbound Service - Any (TCP)  ,allow always, 192.168.0.2, Any users

What works
1.Internet on both pcs.
2.SQL Server 2000 on server

What does not
1.Network - cannot join network domain from client - above error message
2.SQL Client (assuming I get 1. fixed, rest ok)

Tried
1.Pings - fine on both sides (i.e. server to client)
2.Pings - fine on both  sides to Router
3.Net view - both sides - above error message

Very frustrating.

Any ideas most welcomed.

How Windows XP located Domain Controllers
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314861

For starters I would statically assign the server address of what you have. For it DNS enteries it should point to itself first. Then you can either setup the second DNS entry to be your ISP, or you can setup forwards on the DNS services on the server to forward all request to your ISP.

Secondly you will need to reconfigure you DHCP server. If you will not/or cant statically assign an address to the server. I suggest that you add the following configs to the DHCP server. Set the first DNS entry to  be your server and the second DNS to be your ISP DNS entry.

Sorry I should also ask what is running on the server w2k, w2k3 or NT4?
Has the server been configured as a domain controller? If so, is the DNS server service installed?

Hi Steven_alilovic

N.B.Developer, not network person !!!

1."For starters I would statically assign the server address of what you have. For it DNS enteries it should point to itself first." - do you mean goto Server TCP\IP setting (i.e. win 2000 server pc), DNS tab, add DNS Server address of 192.168.0.2 (server itself) ? is that correct

2."Then you can either setup the second DNS entry to be your ISP" - explain this please, is that fixed IP Address given to me from ISP, is that to be added to same place?

3." or you can setup forwards on the DNS services on the server to forward all request to your ISP." - where would that be e.g. on router or win 2000 server pc ?

4."Secondly you will need to reconfigure you DHCP server. If you will not/or cant statically assign an address to the server. " - already done that, by reserving IP Address for server pc 192.168.0.2 via Router DHCP Server.

5."I suggest that you add the following configs to the DHCP server. Set the first DNS entry to  be your server and the second DNS to be your ISP DNS entry." - explain this please.

6."Sorry I should also ask what is running on the server w2k, w2k3 or NT4?" - w2k server

7."Has the server been configured as a domain controller? If so, is the DNS server service installed? " - yes, someone else did that for me.

1) a)Right click My Network Place - Properties
    b) Right click Lan interface select properties
    c)click tcp/ip properties. Add the server ip address to the first dns entry

2) Yes

3) Look at this link about configuring DNS Forwarders
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/q300/2/02.ASP&NoWebContent=1

4 and 5) By reconfigure I mean that you will have to setup the DHCP server on your router to dynamically allocate the DNS server entries to the clients ie 192.168.0.2 or you can manually at add the dns entries on the client. Allocating them via DHCP will mean as you get more clients it wont involve manual configuration. Most DHCP server should be able to allocated DNS and WINS entries dynamically


Also i should ask is the client computer a member of the Active Directories domain configured on the server? If not is there a reason for this?
