Small Business server //servername/computerconnect not working. Suspect Due to not seeing \\mce.local

Posted on 2005-04-25

I am running small business server 2003. I was working fine. But I had to configure the server when I added my second network adapter. My small business server is acting as my gateway/firewall to the internet. I was not able to connect to the internet at first from my client computers when I ran the connect to internet wizard with the 2 adapter configuration. Now the next day I was able to get it working by running the wizard two more times. Now, in turn, I am not longer able to use the http://servername/connectcomputer I get to the end of the connect to network wizard and the error page comes up saying that a network error has occured. Now I had some problem with active directory tools not working at the same time but was able to fix them by starting services that were not working. I also noticed that I am not able to access domain security groups mmc. The error I get is the network path is not found. Now the path it is looking for is \\mce.local\sysvol . Mce.local is my internal domain. My server name is sbserver. Now when I browse to \\sbserver I am able to see it. But when I browse to \\mce.local\sysvol I am not able to see it. I believe this is why I am getting these errors. Just not sure what is causing this. Any ideas would help.
Thank You

    There are far too many parameters to answer your question directly... it seems as though you will need to delete your DNS entries, unintsall DNS and then reinstall to get them back in order.

    Check out this page:  especially about the adding of a 2nd NIC.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions after reviewing that.
