Routing and remote access breaks server when unistalled
Posted on 2004-09-26
I installed routing and remote access on my W2K3 server, found it was not what I wanted and unistalled it through "Manage My Server".
BUT now I cannot map to or manage any other machines inthe AD. I can ping the machine names and get responses, I have a Linksys NSLU2 that has a 300GB drive attached which I automatically mapped to on log in. Now I receive an error message saying the "network provider" cannot be found for that device on log in. If I try to manually map a drive from the server to the unit, or any other machine on the network I just receive a message saying "The drive could not be mapped because no network was found". All the client machines have no problem connecting to the server shares or the Linksys device. I can also successfully map drives to shares on the server locally, just not anything on the network. When I map a networkdrive and go to browse and choose the AD name there are no items underneath the domain name.
If I right click a computer name and then go to manage, I receive an error message saying that the machine cannot be found.
This all worked flawlessly before installig Routing and remote access, all I can think of is that removing that role from the server has not changed a setting back to its original state, but I just cannoy find it!
