Hello

I recently installed a new Domain Server using 2003 Standard Server.

The old domain server was NT4 Server.

I cannot connect to the server via MS-DOS Net Client as follows:

netbios /u
c:\net\net start

I now get the Extended 53 error when trying to communicate with the server.

Both server and dos client are running on protocol 802.3

Is there something I can change to allow connections to the server from a dos client?

You have to use netbios to connect. 802.3 is ethernet protocol, buy whay higher level protocol have you used to connect to the windows nt server, ipx, netbeui or tcp/ip? You must install the same protocol on the windows 2003 server. My guess is netbeui, but you must do a trick, since Microsoft doesn't ship Windows 2003 with NetBEUI and doesn't support the protocol in the OS. However, if you require NetBEUI, you can install the version supplied on the Windows XP installation CD-ROM in the \valueadd\msft\net\netbeui subfolder. Copy the nbf.sys file into the \%systemroot%\system32\drivers directory, copy netnbf.inf into the \%systemroot%\inf\ directory, then open network connection properties and click Install to add NetBEUI.

Usually woksk fine.

In the server's nic properties do you see Novell IPX/SPX/Netbios compatible transport? Read here:
