Adding a 2nd Server to a domain that has no real DNS name
Posted on 2004-09-06
I'm having a first W2003 Server that is a Domain Controller in a Active Directory environment.
The domain is called vanlier.be, although we have that domain for email purposes we have no website behind it. There is no need to do so. The first server is also running a DNS server. It has a fix ip adress and 2 real DNS server configured from our ISP. All computer/server go on the net by a DSL Router.
When trying to activate the Active directory on the second W2003 Server, adding it to an existing domain i must key in user/password and domain. When keying in vanlier.be i'm getting the messages that the domain is not found, and has been checked by the 3 DNS servers (the 2nd machine also has the 2ISP DNS servers and the ip of the 1st ActDir DomContr.
Any suggestions on how to get passed this name, and what to do to get it right.
