Unable to access domain after old server demoted.
Posted on 2005-04-27
Upgraded server from 2k to 2k3. Left the old server online to varify all data has successfully been xfered to new server. Disconnected LAN cable from old server and the LAN went nuts. Realized that Old server needs to be demoted off of LAN. DCPROMO'ed old server successfully. Now when I attempt to access "My Network Places >> Entire Network >> Microsoft Windows Network >> <Domain> I receive error "<Domain> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available." I also received this error when I unplugged the lan connection before I DCPROMO'ed the old server.
I receive this same error even if I attempt to access the network from the new server.
What did I miss? and How can I fix the problem?
