Loading personal settings taks forever after DNS change

I have a 8 user Windows 2000 AD domain.  My Win2000 DC was using IP 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3.  Seems DCHP and DNS were using IP 192.168.1.3, I know this when I ping the server name.  I changed DNS to use 192.168.1.2 and changed all DHCP options.  Now when users login the get loading personal setting for about 45 minutes, I eventually get them to login.  No DNS errors.

Check the dhcp server is handing out the right dns details. Stop and start the DNS and DHCP services

On the workstation:
Open a cmd prompt type in ipconfig /all

Check DNS details are okay

If they are fine try ipconfig /flushdns then ipconfig /registerdns

Then reboot the pc and log in.

Post back.

OK, this morning all the machines I logged into last night are up.  I did an IPCONFIG /all and the information is all correct.  I did a ping by name to the DNS,DHCP,DC server, it was really slow coming back but it did resolve the name.  I have to go back today and try more tests.

Are you teaming the NICs?
Do you have round-robin enabled on your DNS server?  This allows for the clients to find the DNS server at either address alternating between the two...

Hmm, good point, I did have 2 NICS, removed one, but still have round robin enabled.  Thas bad huh.


192.168.1.3 was primary - defined in DNS and DHCP
192.168.1.2 was secondary

I removed 192.168.1.3 and changed DNS and DHCP to use 192.168.1.2.

Hmm..I'm sorry Max10137 - I'm coming up empty here (it's been a really loonnngg week for me).
Why don't you try placing a 20-point "pointer" question in the networking Topic Area.
Those gurus are bound to be able to resolve this for you...
If you're not familiar with this process - open a new question in that TA and place in the subject "500 points!"
In the body paste this link: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20970030.html
Good luck!
