Hello! I'm having a problem I hope someone can help with.
I am running a Windows 2k domain and have recently added
a Windows 2003 server. I want to use the 2k3 server as a
domain controller, but whenever I promote the server I
can no longer access shared documents on one of the 2k
servers from any machine. I get an error saying domain
controller is unavailable or access is denied. If I
access the 2k server using the ip address rather than
server name, I can access the files but otherwise I
can't. If I shut down the 2k3 server I can view the
shared documents, or if I demote the 2k3 server I can
also view them. I have all relevent permissions set up to
view the files and the WINS and DNS settings appear to be
correct. My problem is very similar to these:

But I can't find a fix. Can anybody help?

Thanks

Can you install the support tools off the W2k3 server CD and run dcdiag and netdiag and see if anything is misconfigured on the DC?

In netdiag I got a fail message saying {FATAL} Kerberos does not have a ticket for host/(2k3 server.domain.co.uk). What does this mean? - how do I assign a 'kerberos ticket?'

Are the clocks on that computer synched with the clocks on the other domain controllers?

Are you also installing DNS on this DC as you are upgrading it?  If not make sure that your new DC points to a server running DNS and issue the command:

ipconfig /registerdns at the 2003 server.  Reboot the server and run dcdiag again.  You will most definately not be able to browse anything on the domain until that ticket is established.  Let me know what happens after this.

DNS is not installed on the server. I registered the dns but to no avail. I can still browse nearly everything on the domain- I can view files on all other servers except for one specific file server running w2k server...
