Hi
I am setting up windows 2003 server onto an existing network.
 the trouble I am having is getting computers to join the domain that are on a diffrent ip address.
We are running a wireless network to the other sites.
what happens is the server is on 192.168.1.0 network
and every PC on the 192.168.1.0 network can logon and join the domain just fine.
but the PCs on the 192.168.2.0 192.168.3.0 etc cant join the network
I can ping the server from the from the other networks fine. so the other networks can see it.

Hello,

You will need to change your subnet masks to be 255.255.0.0
You probably are currently using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

Good luck

do you have the option enable netbios over tcp/ip enabled? if no then you may try that, the problem seems a netbios name resolution

Hello,
I have never posted a follow up comment (objection) like this before so
I am not sure of the procedure...but...

This was clearly a subnet mask issue as I pointed out in my recommendation.
Textbook problem:
server on a 192.168.1.0 network (default subnet mask 255.255.255.0)
clients on 192.168.2.0 and 192.168.3.0 cannot join domain
but clients on 192.168.1.0 can.

Textbook Resolution:
Change subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 and everyone will be happy.
Wins is neither here nor there and wasn't mentioned until afterwards

Thank you for your time.

Ehhh......I tried.

He did say that the subnet mask corrected the problem in his response.

Thats cool...I've received plenty of points when it wasn't deserved
so it all comes out in the end
