Creating domain in a poluted namespace.
Posted on 2004-08-27
Hi hope to get some ideas on this issue, I have come into a network running Netware 5 and many Unix, Win2K standalone servers and an NT 4/Exchange5.5 server all sitting in various workgroups like 'myfirm' etc.... A netware server does DNS and thinks its the authority (according to nslookup) for 'myfirm.com'.
I need to setup an AD enviornment and installed a Win2K3 server, setup DNS and did a DCPROMO. DCPROMO was able to set the FQDN to 'myfirm.com' however the Netbios name chosed by DCPromo was myfirm0 due to conflicts on the network.
My question is how do I install and run the Win2K3 AD with the domain name/Netbios name I want ?
