Can't ping WS - Urgent 500 Points
Posted on 2006-04-27
I have a WK2 Server and some XP pro clients. Everything works just fine almost all the time.
Since yesterday one of the clients keeps "loosing" connection to the server while connected to a database (Quickbooks). I used quotes for loose because when that happends the LAN icon in the taskbar doesn't show anything.
The client can:
-Ping the server or any other WS
-Remote desktop the server
-Browse the internet (using the router)
-Print to the network printer (IP)
-Access mapped drives
The client cannot:
-be pinged or accessed from any PC or Server on the network
Right now I'm seating at the WS and have a Remote Desktop session to the Server. Is like from the WS to de Server everything is Ok, but for the server the ws doesn't exist.
-WinXP pro SP2
-Obatin IP (auto) working fine (I tried static IP and registering in the server's DNS but didn't solve my problem)
-I turned off windows Firewall to discard any related problems
-Tcp over Netbios - Enable
-Ran Intel test on NIC - no errors
-Ip config is Ok, checked gateway, dns, subnet etc.
-This machine has been working just fine for at least a year problem s - Nobody else in the LAN have a problem
Sadly someone cleaned the WS event log so I don't have much there except for:
Event ID: 11165
this might be (a) you are not allowed to update the specified DNS domain name, or (b) because the DNS server authoritative for this name does not support the DNS dynamic update protocol............
Please let me know what info you guys need. I have access to both WS and Server right now.
I will really appreciate any help ASAP.
