New Subnet and DNS problems
Posted on 2005-04-11
Our Network is all XP workstations and 2003 Servers. We have static IPs set up on the 192.168.1.x network. There are 2 Domain Controllers running AD. Both DCs are DNS servers and are on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
I have configured our routers and Firewall for the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet (192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.254).
When I configure an XP workstation with a 192.168.0.x IP address, I cannot join the Domain. From the Workstation, I can ping the DNS/DCs only by IP address. I can access nslookup but when I run a query I get "server failed". The workstations IP is not registering in DNS. I can, however, enter the Domain FQDN (mydomain.lcl) and join our Domain.
If I have a workstation on the 192.168.1.x subnet, I can join the domain without the FQDN (mydomain)
Any reason why I have to enter the FQDN on the 192.168.0.x subnet and not on the 192.168.1.x subnet?
