One thing you should look at (on your DNS server) is:

Right click on My Computer and go to Properties
Computer Name tab
Change
More
enter your domain name here: vanettizl.com

On your Domain Controller the DNS Servers in it's IP Configuration should be your Internal DNS Server.

Normally you'll find the DNS Server is the first Active Directory Server you installed.

Your workstations, and in fact everything on your domain, will also need to use the Internal DNS Server so it can find the domain, and add any records it needs to DNS.

To check all that out:

Run "ipconfig /all" on your Server, confirm that the Primary DNS Server is itself (secondary can be blank)

Run "ipconfig /all" on your Workstations, confirm that the Primary DNS Server is your Server (again secondary can be blank)

If you use DHCP check your Scope Options.

Just curious... but why would you install AD on a public server?

Chris DentPowerShell DeveloperCommented:

Okay... a little confused.

For a machine to join an AD Domain it must be using the Internal DNS Server. It can't  use an ISPs DNS because the ISP knows nothing at all about your servers.

Which is where it's a little confusing, you have lots of public information above but no information on the private network.

Can you tell me a little about how your domain is set up now?

Chris DentPowerShell DeveloperCommented:

Active Directory requires that you run your own Internal (Private) DNS. Without it AD can't register the Service Records needed for everything else on the network to find it.

All Internal Clients (PCs) use that DNS Server as well, which lets them find everything else on your Domain. Because AD relies on DNS you must be able to make constant dynamic changes to that DNS (something your ISP really won't let you do).

So, really you should sit the server on a Private IP Range (192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 would do for now) and add the rest of your network devices in the same range.

The routing device should handle any conversations between that network and the internet with one Interface on the Private Network and one on the Public Network (IPs you provided above).

Your server should have a private IP. You will also need to set-up DNS on the Server.

What network hardware do you have there?

Yes, you'll get that because you're trying to use your ISPs DNS. Since you can't write to that DNS you haven't a hope of finding the record you're looking for.

It should have asked you to set-up DNS when you installed Active Directory. The zone should be whatever your (local) domain is called.

Check it's set-up by opening up DNS Manager on the Server and look for a Forward Lookup Zone.

You need to add each PC to the same network range as the server. There's currently no provision for setting up Internet access for the network.

Is there a Forward Lookup Zone in the DNS Manager for your Server?
