Set Static IP address, now cannot log onto machine
Posted on 2005-04-13
Attempting to get around another problem, I switched my system's (Win 2000) IP config to make use of a static value (10.1.1.157).
Formerly, it made use of a DHCP provided value on my XXX domain.
Having rebooted it, I can no longer sign onto the machine, both as a member of the domanin AND on the local computer. I really do not understand why I should not be able to log onto the machine locally, irrespective of above detailed change to a static IP address.
So, basically, I am totally unable to access the machine at all. I am able to sign on to the PDC machine of the domain, but since the machine now has "its own" ip address I can no longer ping it...
Would it be valid to somehow get the PDC machine to be able to talk to the machine by "settig up a route" to the netowrk 10.1.1.x ? even though such a "network" exists only because of the dumb thing I did with a single machine's IP address ? Thanks
